beheaded bottle
While cleaning out the fridge tonight, I ran across an aging unopened bottle of champagne. Instead of just throwing it out, my roommate and I decided to apply some of the valuable knowledge we have learned from Zane Lamprey of Three Sheets, and we “saber”ed it (used a machete and cut the top off or “beheaded” the bottle). Zane does this in the NYC episode (the one not on hulu) but I found this video of someone else doing it. Enjoy!

If you do it right, the pressure of the champagne takes the top cleanly off and it shot about 20 feet across my backyard into my neighbor’s yard. If we can find the top, I’ll post a photo of that as well.

I’m not a huge crossword fan.  Spelling and vocabulary have never been strengths of mine and I tend to not catch all the pop culture references the author throws out as “hints”.  Well I just ran across this crossword puzzle from gamedesign.jp and found it fascinating.  It is more of a logic problem (hinting of Sudoku) than a “true” crossword.  Look for the patterns and do a little guess and check.  The expert one is really tough, but it was a fun little exercise.  The levels go beginner, easy, normal, hard, and expert. Take a few minutes and see if you can’t knock them all out…

Man I wish I had seen Handbell Hero before Christmas!  For those of you wishing you could get into the phenomenon that is “Guitar Hero“, try this little flash game with some popular holiday tunes.  Great idea…
