Razer Onza Tournament Edition

Short, mini-review: works well in Burnout: Paradise. Trigger design a little weird, sometimes a little uncomfortable. Hyper-response action buttons (X Y A B) have almost zero travel, but feel crisp. Backlit keys are cool. Cord is fantastically long. Can’t really tell the difference between the most and least resistant of the adjustable-resistance keys. Shoulder buttons are super-clicky, like clicky in the extreme. Haven’t tried the programmable buttons.

Overall: it’s different. I think the next controller I buy might be the standard controller (the new one, with the ultra-cool transforming d-pad).

Update! Apparently I’m an idiot who doesn’t know how to work technology, because I only figured that the clicking sounds the adjustable-resistance analog sticks were making were it actually, um, adjusting the resistance, and not breaking all the things. With the resistance now adjusted, I can definitely feel the difference between settings, and it definitely makes a difference in twitch-reaction games, or games were precision is necessary. Recommendation upgraded from “meh” to “actually not bad”.

Star Wars: Episode III, Backstroke of the West

a couple of years ago when i was living in shanghai i bought a revenge of the sith dvd off the street. it came with hilariously mangled subtitles that ranged from somewhat close to what the actors were saying to far, far away….

via winterson.com: episode iii, the backstroke of the west redux.

caption explanation

a quick pause in the caption commentary. for a while i couldn’t figure out how the captions got so mangled- i thought maybe it was done by computer, but in some cases like this one the captions make sense but have no relation to what is going on. general grevious is actually saying, “just as count dooku predicted”…

But wait, there’s more!

Tonight’s Insanity: Mega Meme Edition

…and from out of the last link a new meme was born. I ask you:

If a tree falls on the Bose-Einstein condensate black hole, does it make a sound?

For those that possess no brain, this is an awesome adaptation of an old favourite quote of mine: if a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

I’ll leave the pondering up to you, ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy. 🙂
