All-out weirdness assualt




If you don't have next several hours to kill you may not want to read this post.

The Card House is a blog devoted to things like Mexican supermarkets, hamster-related game shows and candy cigarettes. I wasted well over an hour there earlier this afternoon and still can't quite describe the it. Perhaps it's the kitsch-equivalent of Boing Boing. Regardless, it's not the sort of site you should turn your back on. It might bite.

Earlier today, the author posted a six-page article on Japanese arcade games that's well worth a look. Among those featured are mafia-themed games that test players typing skills and a blackjack game with a video croupier. Also included are several up-close pics of the drum game Scarlett Johansson stares at in mute wonder in Lost in Translation and an analysis of the cartoons on the side. The final game mentioned, pictured above, makes absolutely no sense and may involve sharp knives.

On the same topic, if you still haven't seen this prepare to become both shocked and appalled.




Here is also a link to collection of very strange GIFs. Among them, is the bizzaro world Arnold Schwarzenegger one you see above. The shot is from a series of commercials he did in the '90 for some sort of energy drink.

Really, why wasn't that ad run around the clock during the California recall?

You want to see the commercial, don't you? Of course you do. Just follow this link but be warned: if you aren't familiar with Japlander, prepare to lose the next two hours of your valuable time.

If you still have free time after all of that, there's always this.
