Zero Punctuation

It isn't often that The OverDrone laughs out loud at a video game review. Yahtsee Croshaw is a British born, Australian living, freeware game maker who also reviews games on his website He produced two short video reviews on YouTube which led to his current gig at The Escapist. If you are like The OverDrone you will watch this video and then quickly link to his other works.
Last night The OverDrone downloaded one of his adventure games and had a wonderful time. Let me repeat that. The OverDrone had a wonderful time playing an adventure game, an adventure game.

The OverDrone suggests that you watch the video first, Simian Mobile Disco's Hustler. The track is a blippy tribute to the lifestyle of the hustler. Near pornographic images of young ladies (and maybe a young man as well, The OverDrone cannot tell) then some pictures of food and then food porn. As soon as the breakbeat kicks in things get weird.
And, for your juxtaposition,

Which one made you sicker?
Further viewing of Simian Mobile Disco's YouTube queue reveals them to be consummate knob twiddlers. They crouch over their little boxes and occasionally glance at the crowd. Poor wee shy little twiddlers.
Just to cleanse your mind of that last video, here is another image The OverDrone found on ponyXpress a NSFW collection of erotic and thought provoking images. Well mostly, there is also a lot of T and A.

While perusing potential crossing sites for a foray into the Sonoran desert The OverDrone came across this, the LowDrone. The LowDrone navigates between countries using four chrome plated turbines. Below you will find excerpts from a timeline chronicling the events that led to the intersection of the lowrider and and the Drone.
  • 1898--The first drone, a kite rigged to take photographs, is invented during the Spanish-American War.
  • 1940’s - The Lowrider is invented by pachucos,or devious Mexican-American youths, who put sandbags in the trunkof their cars to lower the back.
  • 1957 - Lowriders are outlawed by the Governor of California.In response, pachucos add hydraulic pumps to their Lowriders, allowing the car to raise or drop with a flip of a switch.
  • 2002 - 2004 - Anti-immigrant vigilantes fly a drone over the U.S./Mexico Border to hunt for primarily Mexican immigrants. The U.S. Border Patrol follows the vigilante's lead. Around the same time, the Los Angeles Police Department plans to fly drones to keep an eye on pachucos and other urban residents.
  • 2005 — The LowDrone, the world’s first aerial lowrider armed with video surveillance capabilities, is invented. The LowDrone is currently stationed at one of the most surveilled spaces on the planet – the U.S./Mexico border between Tijuana and southern California.

No, it can't be... ALVIN!

The OverDrone came upon this while strolling through the virtual aisles of Nerds With Kids. Alvin, Simon and Theodore are to be animated by a computer. Yes, those feisty chipmunks who broke into show biz way back in 1958 will be given the same treatment as Garfield. I won't waste the memory needed to store the poster just click on the link below and weep, weep for us all!
