N64 Corruption Guide
Zelda: Ocarina of Death (Corruptions)
Super Mario 64: ROM Corruption
Although I hadn't searched for it, I figured people would be doing it. It's just pretty boring because you can't do that much. You corrupt a resource and you get glitchy visuals and such. You corrupt code and you're out. If you dig a little deeper and make targeted changes it isn't really corruption anymore. I don't think I really get the charm. :) Might have to do with overexposure through the broken GPU of my old PowerBook, and actually trying to play games with it?

I don't know enough about electronics to bend them, but I once made an effects processor out of broken guitar pedals.

Ah, see, because of that and other comments you've made (like modding geetars), I had got the impression you were a bit of an electronics tinkerer.

Yes, but it has kind of a unique sound because not all the original parts work or work correctly.

Harold Ramis - Stripes - Basic English

The whole first act of this film, before they got to boot camp, was filmed here in Louisville. The scene where Murray is driving the taxi across the bridge actually shows him leaving the city as he crosses over into southern Indiana. There's no airport there.

Last semester (it just ended) I had a professor who looked and talked just like that (the hair, the clothes, the voice, everything).

The Unloved: Tron Legacy

http://vimeo.com/87142368

(I feel like lots of "easter eggs" and references to other movies alone don't make a good movie, and that no moviegoer would think the 'philosophy' that is explained here is very deep and was as important to the film as this essay suggests though...)

What Languages Sound Like To Foreigners


I can approve of the Swedish one (complete nonsense of course but accent is spot on (stockholm accent)), and as far as I can tell the others are great too ^^

Unsere Amateure, echte Profis (short version)
A stirring video about the amateur soccer players and supporters who are the sport's real heros (which I -- being an ex-soccer-mom -- can only confirm). :D
