The show was about how all these different systems in the city work, and the opening gives you a glimpse of how comprehensive the show tries to be.
He's doing his normal morning routine but it's suggestively off.
They get more creative with this song. They have different versions of the song for different episodes later on in the show. I think they even it cut it out altogether. It does, however, just give you a weird suburbia feeling.
Well, the song is great and the images are just great. They are also random, but they seem to work well and prepare you for the show.
I had forgotten to include this one, but it's definitely up there. Just the song and the simplicity is enough to count it among the best.
Quite frankly, it's artistic. Because the show didn't finish and goes too slowly, I might even say that this opening was better than the show itself. People should take a hint from this opening or do as the next opening does.
I am not the biggest fan of this show, but it has done some great things. This opening is one of those great things. If you are not going to have a great opening like the ones above (with a great song), then just fall back on this quick opening and flash the names during the first few minutes of the show. Simple.

Anyway, for those of you who are curious, behind in the times, and not assholes, here's a site you can use that will show you what those pages are trying to get you to like. It's called Bypass Facebook Fan Pages and it was created by people like us who are not into being assholes. I personally don't want to encourage this idiotic "like it or we wont show you what you're going to like"...
Nothing like throwing Lego into any medirum to make it art. It's been done and it always seems to work. I'll, clearly, make more posts to show this. Here's the first, though. Mike Stimpson takes classic pictures and recreates them using Legos. Similar to the example above, he uses some of the most well-known Classic Photos. Here is a post that matches them side-by-side. His site includes many more, even in the non-classics Lego theme.
Chow Hon Lam's Flying Mouse 365 presents t-shirt designs weekly. His goal, apparently, is to make a new design every day. A great place to go find wallpapers, if you're bored of yours.
A few more after the jump.
Don Ken's blog features pretty cool pictures of monsters. He does this all on post-it notes. Here's the little blurb on his blog:
born in Denmark 1978. I write and direct television shows for kids. I have a set of twins and not much time for anything. But when i have time i draw monsterdrawings on post-it notes... it is a little window into a different world, made on office supplies.
Check out his blog for more pictures.

If you don't have this add-on already, get it. It's available for FireFox (of course) and I hear that there is one for Chrome. It prevents flash things from loading on the pages that you load. In their place, there is a play button. If you push this button, those items will load. So, instead of having these things slow down your computer by instantly loading, you get to pick and choose what will load. It's great. Do it! Download it!
Cat Piano is an awesome short animated film. It was voted one of the top 10 shorts of 2009. A well deserved honor. Definitely entertaining to hear and beautiful to watch. It feels like a very hip Christopher Walken is reading a poem to you...about cats. However, it's more awesome because you get Nick Cave, the Australian singer, narrating a film noir tale about cats. Also, you can find the poem here and watch the short film below.
Ashes to Ashes
This is the more visually appealing one. I should note that it is NSFW and French. Here is what their site has to say about it
Ashes to Ashes is an unofficial short film shot in 13 days and postproduced in France between 2006 and 2008. This fan film is based on the Batman character created by Bob Kane and on the graphical universe of Franck Miller’s Sin City. Original screenplay by Samuel Bodin and directed by Julien Mokrani & Samuel Bodin.
City of Scars
I can't find as much information on it.
When the Joker escapes from Arkham and murders the parents of a young boy, Batman recalls the pain of losing his own parents as a child. He is pushed past his limits to the point where his focus becomes revenge on all who stand in his way, including many of Gotham’s underworld. Finally, Batman is forced to look at the psychological profile of his own mind and except the consequences of his life to find resolve.
Written and directed by Aaron Schoenke, the short was filmed with High Definition cameras over 21 days with a budget of only $27,000.

Since I mentioned it in a previous post, I figured that I should also include Pandemic 2 on this site. It's another end-the-world game- great for when you are angry at the world. You pick a disease, develop it, and let it spread around the world and kill everyone (the goal). The game is reviewed well in this other blog. It's interesting to mention that the game is notorious for how hard it is to infect every single country...especially Madagascar, which has led to it's own meme. Check out the game below...personally, I've only succeeded twice.
Infectionator is very cool flash game about zombies. In this game, you spread your disease and make zombies. Eventually, you go and destroy all the world with your zombie disease. It's sorta like Pandemic 2, only with more action. For example, you can call up zombie characters like...MJ. Here's their description of the game:
Zombie infections madness, turn people into zombies in 60 seconds, upgrade your zombies to more powerful ones, get the highest score by destroying and infecting the town
Instructions: Use mouse to infect, throw grenades, and call up other zombies.

Pogo is an electronic music producer in Perth, Western Australia. He is known for his work recording small sounds from a single film or scene and sequencing them to form a new piece of music.
Here's his blog, which you should check out. Also, here's two of my favorites.
Here are the videos from Youtube.
It gets much more less safe for work than that. Go to the site here.

Some of their evidence.
The eye in the hand, apparently a very much overused Illuminati symbol, is a constant theme of Gaga's. I mean, look at the evidence RIGHT THERE!
Plus, look at the similarities between her pose in the first picture and that of Baphomet...who are you, by the way? Lady Gaga's demonic manager? Are you Fernando?
Also, is "Fernando" a song about opening up our borders with Mexico and allowing all those Immigrants to enter whenever they please? How metaphorical and deep is she? Or is her symbolism soo deep that it's shallow? Clearly, she feels no shame in showing her Illuminati association...like all the time in every picture, according to these guys. All I can say about this article is <3.
Follow the logic here.
Check out all the awesome here.
Follow the laser innovations here.
More pictures here.
I will definitely check out more from this site and report back what other interesting things there are here.
What the heck is an Abarimon?
What the heck is an Abatwa?
What the heck is an Blemmyes?
It's always a multi-panel, colored design. Often, the stories are ridiculously absurd and some secondary characters are rarely repeated (like the giant neighbor?). I definitely need to see more of this...ridiculousness.
Link to a few more examples.
They definitely have better ones than this.
Check them out HERE.
The shirts, though, are not why I spend so much of my time there. They have a few comics on their site.
Natalie Dee: same as below, but only with color.
Toothpaste for Dinner: Standard stick-figure style one to three panel comics.
Superpoop: a pretty good photo comic section. They claim it's only "occasionally updated."
I put them above in the order in which I'd rank them, from least enjoyable to most enjoyable. I've left the best for last:
Married to the Sea. It's hard to describe, and as they say. I think I'll leave it to the pictures.
I can't say what it is about this quirky style, but it's great and more often than not, it's worth a laugh.
Check out Married to the Sea. It randomly generates comics, but it seems to have an archive to the right of the comics.
