Scary Streetview Scrutiny Sunday Site

February 27, 2011

Is it Sunday already? Yikes. Here I was, intending to post midweek as well, and it’s already Sunday. I do have a few posts in the works, and if I could give you a preview without giving the post away, I would. Actually…

Feel free to wonder. No, the post isn’t the obvious. Suspense! Aha! It’s proof, I didn’t just draw that for the sake of pretending I have a post. I do! You will see. Eventually.

Moving right along, this week’s Scrutiny Sunday post is going to be a small one again, once again featuring a site. These are the kind of things probably better suited to Reps ALinkAndASmile. That said, they still count for Scrutiny Sunday. For me anyway. And around here, what I say goes.

Just a little fun site for today, combining Zombies with Google Street View to bring you a survival game where you run down your own street avoiding zombies, and seeing how long you can stay alive. You can set the difficulty, and the address where you begin.

A zombified MoS. (That or MoS at 4am. Hard call)

You can check it out, it’s called STREETVIEW ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE (yes, in all caps)

It was a little slow running for me, but I dodged zombies regardless. If it loaded a bit faster, I’d have played for longer, it’s an amusing take on the Google Maps features. I played it fine in Firefox, even though they recommend Chrome. Would have probably run faster. Running faster is always a good thing when zombies are involved…

That’s my contribution for today, not much but it has zombies so it’s worth double points. I may or may not have just made that rule up but it sounds good. I was going to link you to a few other good sites/pages but might save those for another time, this is the internet after all. Shall be seeing you for more posts in a week at the latest, I know it’s hard to go without a post from me for a week so I will try get some more material up soon. This doesn’t sound finished, I knew I should have figured out a catchphrase to end on back when I started Scrutiny Sunday. Oh well!

Scrutiny Sunday Silly Site

February 21, 2011

So. I’m back. For real this time. I’ve had more than enough time to recover, and the jet lag excuse is wearing a little thin after over a week. Anyhow, no fanfare entrance (that would ruin my attempt to sneak back into the blogging scene like nothing has happened), on with the actual content.

Today’s Scrutiny Sunday (Yes, it’s still Sunday in America and I technically started writing this on a Sunday so it counts) topic is… a website. I’m not sure if I should be censoring my work, especially if this website has a ‘swear word’ (oooo, I’m telling) in the name and url. So, we’ll go with doing this. Highlight it to read the whole word if you’re feeling especially sweary today (gosh, this should be Word Wednesday as well!) Oh, and better do a clearer NSFW (Contains obscenity) warning. There.

The site is called The Fucking Weather.

You’ve probably heard of it. Basically, you enter your zipcode or city name and it will tell you what the temperature is, and also inform you if it is particularly hot or cold, in not so nice terms. Fahrenheit or Celsius, it will even let you know the forecast.

For those of you who like knowing the temperature with dramatic F Bombs, it’s definitely handy. For those of you like me, who check the weather forecast randomly and sparsely, it’s amusing to hear a more interesting take than a more official weather channel. According to this site, right now where I am ‘It’s Fucking Hot!’ and in small print ‘Still not appropriate to wear a Speedo though’. Good advice, weather site, good advice.

When I drew it, it looked like it needed eyes. Should have added a moustache.

That about wraps it up for this dismal post. I’ve learnt what the weather is, and that I can’t draw stormclouds. Not a great coming back post, I imagine you all know about this already, but it’ll do. For now.

Scrutiny Sunday Sorry

February 14, 2011

So. Good news is I’m back in Australia. Well, it’s not really good news. For me at least. Ok, bad news is I’m back in Aus.

More bad news is, I’m not inspired to post. Was aiming for another double to make up for the one I missed -but- I have been busy travelling/being on holiday/recovering so… oops.

On that note though, I will make a better effort to push out more posts in the coming weeks to make up for my absence. Good stuff. Right, I’m off to nap. Or at least think about it until it’s a reasonable hour to sleep. I drew this for you.

Be back soon guys

Should have drawn me looking more frazzled

See ya soon, thanks for the patience.
