Watch this alternate version of the Butterfingers video for their single 1000 Tahun.

It’s directed by Khairul Azri and produced by my old friend Atom from PhuturePhlow Productions.

It’s funny!

Mozilla’s code turns ten, too

Yup, while we’re on the subject of things turning ten, let’s not forget that Mozilla deserves props for making the Web a better place to surf.

Yes, they’re the folks who invented Firefox, the best browser in the Whole Wide World.

They released the source code for Mozilla on March 31, 1998.

Happy birthday, Mozilla.

Jason Kottke recently celebrated the tenth anniversary of kottke.org, one of the most influential blogs on the Web.

Thanks for ten years of great ideas, Jason.

I wonder how many reskins I’ll have by the time I get to the tenth anniversary of this blog.

*muses*

It’s good to be home

I just got back from Adfest 2008.

More updates soon; that suitcase isn’t going to unpack itself.

Meanwhile, read what Leigh Reyes has to say about the event. Hint, hint: she’s an ECD from the Philippines!

Watchmen

Watchmen is probably the best comic ever created, next to Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns and of course, Ronin.

The comic, which is going to be made into a movie and slated for release in March 2009, should turn out to be pretty cool, too, since it’s directed by Zach Snyder (the dude who did an awesome job with Dawn of the Dead and 3oo).

What’s even cooler, though, is the fact that the pre-launch buzz is being channeled through a blog and not a typical flashy-but-useless Hollywood film website.

Blog entries are written by Zach Snyder and include news from last year’s Comic-Con, production stills and art. More importantly, it also comes with RSS, social bookmarking buttons and even a Flickr widget.

Woohoo.

No, seriously, this is awesome.

This is how we do.

It’s refreshing to see a big film studio like Warner Brothers move away from those traditionally terrible film websites that aren’t user-friendly, don’t encourage feedback and never work properly, anyway.

I’ve been telling people the same old story since Day Frickin’ One; blogs aren’t just a great way to talk to your fanboys, they’re also a great way of sustaining the hype. If you know how to feed the right information to the right audiences, you can maintain the hype for as long as you want to.

The downside to Watchmen’s blog, however, is that you can’t post comments, so say goodbye to trackbacks, linkbacks and good old fashioned human discussion.

Zach, if you’re reading this, please enable comments! Comments are important!

Have a slogan!

haveaslogan1.jpg

Here’s a tip; I love irony.

Which is why I love widgets like Have a slogan! ( which I found via Yellowpulp)

It mashes up popular advertising slogans with random ‘terrible’ things like crabs.

You can even embed the slogans on your blog. Just copy and paste away.

What’s clever, though, is the business model for this widget: The slogans are ‘generated’ by a white dude called Murphy and it takes only $1 a day to keep Murphy at work.

If every visitor finds Murphy’s slogans entertaining enough to justify a donation (and it’s only $1, Bob), and if there are thousands of visitors who donate every day, I think Murphy could end up being one of the richest motherfuckers on the interwebs in a matter of weeks.
