02/24/2014 / Trog / Comments Off on House Hold Hacker: How to Secretly Play Mobile Games by Hiding Your Phone Inside of a Paper Notebook!
Via Laughing Squid: If you really want to be a slacker, you’re going to have to work hard at it. Fortunately the good people at House Hold Hacker have your back. Okay, their Youtube videos aren’t necessarily for slackers, maybe just this one video. Actually, they provide lots of great instructional videos on simple life hacks that are easy to follow and replicate. Below I’ve posted two of their videos; How to Secretly Play Mobile Games (…) and DYI Flashligh. Now, if you don’t mind, I need to go carve out the inside of a note book to hide my wee–mobile game. Yes.
02/10/2014 / Trog / Comments Off on Scorched: The Custom Wood Burn Art of Brittani Nay
Via Starving Artist Inc.: Since starting Atomic Moo we’ve posted on the many different ways fans and artist have expressed their talents and enthusiasm for pop-culture; However, I don’t think we’ve covered wood burning until now. So, check out the incredible talent of artist Brittani Nay and her very geeky wood work! Nay specializes in custom wood burn art covering subjects like Comic books, Horror, and Science Fiction. On her website (link above) Nay discusses her process for wood burning:
All of my pieces are handmade. I start out with an idea, that leads to sketching out the layout, then transferring the image onto the wood. I then wood burn the image. I then hand brush the different wood stains to add depth and dimension. Once this is done I complete all of my projects with a clear coat finish to ensure long lasting quality and a gloss finish.
Below I posted a few samples from her online portfolio, but a larger gallery of work, and purchasing information, can be found on her site!
Please please please please tell me that the Giant Earthworm and Japanese Spider Crab are two creatures that are now happily extinct. I don’t know if I can live on the same planet with two of the creepiest critters I’ve ever heard of. Anyhow, Trog pointed me towards this nifty interactive video by the HTwins of the scale of the universe. Basically it takes you from the tiniest things in our universe (quantum foam and strings) to the observable universe. If you’ve been looking for something that will amaze you, while at the same time make you feel incredibly small and insignificant (with the added bonus of eating up you’re whole morning cause you can’t stop playing with it), well this is for you. I’ll add a couple more screen shots of it below, but click here to see it for yourself and enjoy.
Atomic Moocast #55 is here and ready to roll across your brain like an audio station wagon from hell! On this very special edition of the Moocast we are joined by our Brethren Moo member Brandon Noel! Brandon comes on the show to talk some Superman and to tell us about his latest volume of pulp stories! Then we are joined by Mrs. Rebecca Weih, an intern for Ugli Studios. We have a lot of fun joking with Becca and learning about the fascinating world of a comic book intern!
So here we go folks. Quick! Hurry and go grab a fizz soft soda from the ice box! Then scurry to that place you feel most comfortable in all the world, even if it is a place where you may not need pants! Then cram a pair of earbuds into your listen holes and get ready to listen to the best damn podcast your friends don’t know about!!!

Hey El Moochadors! This is the third post I’ve done with a focus on nerd Music. First I talked about steam punk music, then I did a post about Nerd Core, and were talking about StarKids and there Musical “Holy Musical B@tman”. If your unfamiliar with Star Kids they have a crazy fallowing one of the founding members went on to be a permit fixture in Fox’s Glee. There first major Geek project was Harry Potter the Musical. Now I am gonna be honest I am not a big fan of Harry Potter the Musical. Its not because a I am not a Harry potter fan I don’t like it because of there lack of Set and Props. Now Back to Batman I have to say I enjoyed there Musical tack on Batman because of the level of awesomeness. The musical is not maid to make fun of Batman but to celebrate all the awesomeness of the silverier age or and 90’s darkness from the Batman Comics. And Guy Gardner is a recurring character in the Musical enough said. GUY GARDNER!!!
Hey, ’cause it’s not like I have a job to go to, right? Might as well do a quick post of some nifty stuff I came across this morning. Here are three nifty YouTube videos I watched earlier. I’ve been wondering about this poster for awhile now, and where it came from. Seems like I see it or a parody of it all of the web these days…
Anyhow, just a few examples I found on DeviantArt to show what I was talking about. Watch the video below to find out it’s origins.
12/13/2011 / Uncle Chudd / Comments Off on Evening Moo: Darth Skeletor (or Skevader), Awesome Gen 13 Cosplay, and Other Stuff
Hey geeks. Man, it’s been a weird week so far. I think the cherry on top of it all was getting a rejection email from a graphic design studio at the end of the day, saying I’m not experienced enough for them. Well, it’s only Tuesday. I’ve got the rest of the week to make things better. Right?
Not much to report as far as the site is concerned. Trog is still busy working on the next Moocast. He’s actually got two he’s working on, but I guess he’s having some audio problems on one. So we’ll see what he ends up with. He might just end up combining the two. I just went through my reader and other sources and found some nifty stuff floating on the web. Above is this nifty bust mash-up of Darth Vader and Skeletor by Ryan Renders. I keep wanting to call it Darth Skeletor, but I guess Skevader works to. Check out a few more images of it after the jump. He’s also got more great work in is DeviantArt gallery, so check that out if you get a chance.
Right now I’m between projects; I just finished an upload to my microstock accounts and now I’m about to continue working on some library posters I was hired to design. I thought I would take a break and do a post while Trog is busy putting together the last Moocast. As far as any Atomic Moo news, well I’ve decided to take down the downloads page for a little while. I want to get more specific on the type of projects I’m putting up for download, and I need some time to work them out. The main reason I started this site was to have something for myself to create for, and the free downloads were part of it. So I definitely want to get something back up soon. Still, I want to get more focused on the type of projects I’m doing for Atomic Moo, and just not slap the logo on anything I come up with. Other than that, not much else to report.
Anyways, here’s some nifty things I’ve come across recently that’s worth a shout out… or a moo. Like these Star Wars Art Prints by Case Kunz. Looks like they’re available on Society6 for purchase.
Any plans I had of doing something fun this Halloween weekend have been tossed out the window. Can’t seem to get over this damn cold, and I don’t want go anywhere where there’s a bunch of girls dressed in slutty costumes and end up spreading my diseases all over them—well, actually that is what I’d like to do, but not when I can barely breathe and have snot streaming outta my nose. Anyhow, since I’m staying in, I spotted some nifty Halloween stuff on my reader I thought I should pass along. Like this nifty Lord of the Rings pumpkin (spotted via GeeksAreSexy.net). No idea who carved it, and I’m too lazy to track the links down to find out. Still, who ever did it, good job!
Usually I hate it when people dress their pets up in cute little costumes, but since I hate poodles even more, and this ended up looking really bad ass, I’m okay with it (found via BoingBoing.net).
Here’s a short CGI animation that I watched earlier (via GeekTyrant.com) by a group that calls themselves A Large Evil Corporation. It’s very short, but I really like the style of it and it definitely gives off a Halloween vibe. Check it out below.
