Via Joystiq, I found a fantastic set of photos on Flickr called “Tribute to id Software (Doom)”. Apparently some German guy in Berlin decided to perform some street art and decorate some rather dull billboards with Doom HUDs. Awesome stuff.
Doom Billboard – Minigun
Doom Billboard – Chainsaw
Doom Billboard – Shotgun
Of course whether these are real or just Photoshop fakes is another question. I really hope they are real as it would be a delight just to think of some poor driver passing one whilst heading home on the autobahn. Ah Doom… how I miss it.
So I was cruising around Flickr when I happened upon some quite amazing photos of Blizzcon ‘09 by a chap called Brian J. Matis. They are utterly stunning and I was immediately transfixed going through them all. Brian, apart from being a geek like you and I, is obviously very talented with a camera lens. I loved his photos so much, I wanted to post a few on my site for everyone to see and thankfully Brian consented with his permission. Of course, I was attracted to the all of the beautiful images of female cosplayers (he happens to have taken a lot of them) and thus this article was born. Sorry Brian if this isn’t post isn’t as highbrow as you may have hoped
You can check out Brian’s original Blizzcon ‘09 photostream on Flickr here plus you’ll find loads of other shots he’s taken. Amazing aren’t they?
Stunning. And the photo's good too. Ba-da-boom.
Something tells me this lady doesn't need a hand with anything. OK, I'll stop it with the bad puns now.
Love the eyes. An amazing photo.
Absolutely terrifying, yet mesmerizing.
It takes a brave woman to enter a room full of rabid geeks whilst not wearing any underpants.
So hot, it's almost volcanic.
Well, I’d better stop beforeI kill everyone’s bandwidth. Brian has plenty more photos and the Blizzcon ‘08 ones are great too.
Something I love about the Japanese is there undying love for awesome stuff. I mean, they do cool things just for the sake of doing cool things. Take this for example – a giant replica 1:1 scale RX78 Gundam robot that they built on the man-made island of Odaiba, Tokyo. 59 feet tall and utterly awesome, it’s a site to behold.

If you want some hi-res photos or photos of it at night check out these posts over at Danny Choo and Shibuya 246.
Totally off topic but I found this on Boing Boing and it was so… well, awesomely freaky… I just had to repost it. Yep, it’s a zombie My Little Pony. Creepy.

Here’s a picture of my desk at home. One of my EQ2 buddies sent me a photo of his desk so I thought I’d return the favour but, this time, show the world (that’s you).
My desk at home
Some of the features include:
- An ergonomic keyboard and trackball mouse to increase STA and DEX when gaming
- Headphones with mic so I can chat to people (Sociability +2)
- A lamp for illumination
- Toys art models from Japan
- A miniature remote controlled Land Rover (far left beside the calendar and photos) which I can drive around my desk during boring groups
