Nerd Talk: Guy Makes Dave Grohl Out of Rubik's Cubes!

It's like my best worlds have collided -- cubing and rock music with this sweet portrait of Dave Grohl ! Dave Grohl ~ 725 Rubik’s cubes. Seeing the Foo Fighters concert a few months ago here in Melbourne has been one of the most inspiring moments, and I was lucky enough to share the experience with... Read More

Nerd Talk: Bad News About Lava...

The volcanic activity from Mt. Kilauea is creating some awful problems for the people of Hawaii - the vog alone is tough on the ol' lungs (volcanic fog = vog). But with anything radical like that, there's gonna be humans being all human-y and doing asinine things. "Think I can jump my mountain bike... Read More

Nerd Talk: NASA's 4K Tour of the Moon is just Badass

As a tiny little virus running around changing the Earth to my own liking, it's a complex abstract idea to understand the scale, distance, and the barren surface of our natural satellite the moon.

Nerd Talk: RIP The CD (1982-2018)

Mega-retailer Best Buy has announced that they're done selling you music via Compact Disk. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I take full responsibility for being that jerk who assumes everyone is technologically growing with the times, because I was shocked to find out how many people still buy physical media to consume...

Nerd Talk: Elon Musk Is Straight Up Selling Flamethrowers

The cool part about being a gazillionaire is that you get to do whatever the crap you want. "I wanna go to Mars" builds a rocket company. "I hate traffic" builds a tunneling company for an underground rollercoaster. "I wanna sell hats" comes up with a scheme where if people buy a total of 50,000... Read More

Nerd Talk: Finally, a Pill For Tracking Your Farts

Australian "scientists" have invented an ingestible pill whose design allows it to track the build-up or depletion of gas in your guts. It's a fart pill ... for tracking farts. Seriously though, understanding how all those craft beers turn to farts in your guts is an important element of... Read More
