Manliness Level: Over 9000

There comes a time for everybody who is honest with themselves where they must admit that they are not, and never will be, the absolute best at something.  There is always someone better.  Case in point: Ranveer Singh.

Not even in my wildest dreams could I hope to match the level of manliness shown in this song, Malhari, from the 2015 movie Bajirao Mastani.  Just watching it made my beard grow four inches.  My mustache, no feeble thing in its own right, began to sob.  And all I could do is think that, yes, this could be shoehorned into West Side Story fairly easily. I mean... damn.  

Now I hope Ph.Duck drops by The Pond soon...

NASAmanga Daioh

Y'all remember Moonbase Alpha?   The co-op game that NASA put together to simulate spaceman life on the Moon?  For a while there, there was a hot meme involving the game's text-to-speech program repeatedly saying, and later singing, "John Madden."  It's that last bit that concerns us today, for some of the singing that was arranged was actually fairly good... I mean, as good as you could expect a Stephen Hawking soundalike to sound.  I've played around with text-to-speech in one game or another, and making it sound like... well, speech... isn't all that easy, so even those simple bits impress me.


And then there's this:

...to which my reaction was:


But wait!  THERE'S MORE!

more...
