S.L.O.T.W. – Hungry Edition!!! (Japan Flavored)

Welcome to a japanese food editon of SLOTW!

You may be all aware, we’re always munching on all kinds of food.  And one of my favorite kinds of food happens to come from Japan!  And THAT is exactly what this SLOTW’s is all about!

So to kick it off:

Say you have a craving for sushi, but can’t exactly find time to goto a restaurant or make one yourself?  Then grab a Sushi Popper for on the go snackage!   This sushi in a convenient package has pre-cut sushi in a tube that you push up like a push pop.  At the moment, Sushi Poppers comes in 3 different flavors, Cucumber, California, and Spicy Shrimp.  Craving for a taste?  Then feel free to order Sushi Poppers online!

So what happens when your friends at the mall, and you find yourself in the food court?  Of course, you have a lot to choose from.  From healthy food shops, to chicken sammiches.  But then something catches your eye…. something like Pizza on a cone! A restaurant in Japan actually makes cone shaped pizza that you eat like an ice cream cone!  No muss, no fuss, right?

And what would your day of eating be complete without something to wash it all down?  Well look no further than Wasabi Beer! The folk from Miyamoto beer have come up with Wasabi Beer, a spicy infused beer with a powerful Wasabi kick to it!

P.S.:  What good would dinner truly be without a date to accompany you?

That’s all for the SLOTW!  See you next time!


SLOTW – Revivals!

So sorry for the MORE than tardy edition of SLOTW!

I apologize for the long extended wait.  It’s been a tumultuous few weeks, so I’ve been needing to hammer down links this time.  Preparing for EXPCon AND ShadoCon can be hard work sometimes.

Well without further ado, here are this week’s links:

Jetpacks?  On my Spartans? – Since Halo: Reach came out this week, there has been a media blitz covering it’s launch… but apparently, the Britains had a bit of fun of their own with the launch?  Trafalgar Square + Jetpacks = SWEET!

Take a Ride on my lawn chair – MONSTER LAWN CHAIR!!!  And why yes, it DOES breathe fire!

and finally….

Sad, but inspiring story – well this is a different sort of sweet this week, but on a sad note.  One of the popular developers at Relic Entertainment (Company of Heroes) was hit by a car, and died.  But it’s truly sweet when you realize that he also saved his pregnant wife.  He swerved to take the full impact of the crash, saving his wife’s life.  David deserves a manly salute for his bravery.  I salute his bravery and compassion.

There’s a memorial fund setup for Brian.  If you wish to donate, please click here.

S.L.O.T.W. #3 – 3D Glasses not required!

Welcome back to another edition of SWEET LINKS OF THE WEEK!  This week features an all video edition of sweet links for you all to enjoy!   Some

Duke Nukem Eternity – It’s been heard all around the gaming community how  3D Realms finally shut down, taking Duke Nukem Forever down with it.  Well apparently some fans of the Duke himself decided to finish what 3D Realms started, and here’s some video of the fruits of their Labor (Warning:  Lotsa violence and some language.  Might not be good for kids.)  They even have links to where you can even play the game yourself!

Fun with Chemistry! – Being a sucker for hands on Chemistry growing up in school (even though I never took a class in it), I always like to search for sweet videos of stuff happening.  So happens that we have a compilation for ya right here!  From dangerous chemical reactions to a small project you can try yourself, the folks at DISCOVER Magazine have a special treat for you!  (aniRAGE is not responsible for you trying anything you see in this clip, but we do reserve the right to laugh at you if you do so.  Ha ha.)

And LAST, but not least.

Ye Olde Transformers – This may be at least a year old, but it’s still great.  Ever wonder if the Transformers came about 50 years too early?  This is what might have happened.
And that’s it for this all-video edition of S.L.O.T.W.  Tune in next time and have your wallets handy for an all you can buy edition!


S.L.O.T.W. #2 – Electric Boogaloo

Hey guys, Kirby here again, to bring you our next selections of our Sweet Links of the Week!  It’s been a long week for me, but I can say for sure that I’m as impressed with this week’s selection of links as you’ll hopefully be!

And now off to the links!

3-year old gaming future prodigy? – If I were this kid’s father, I’d also be proud!  Our first link of the week brings us a 3-year old gamer who not only freshly out of diapers, but freshly in the gamer chair, showing aniRAGE how much better he is than aniRAGE at Mirror’s Edge.  Stopping only to take juice breaks, we see little Finley’s little fingers working the mouse and keyboard, while dad watches and films on in amazement.  It’s even awesome to see him go around in circles occasionally.  It even impressed Kotaku enough to get him an article on the site, too!

Feeling destructive, ladies?  Awesome! – This link comes to us from a good friend and first time contributor, Eevee! *waves my thanks*  Have any of you ladies ever gotten the urge to destroy your boyfriend or husband’s favorite sports statue or helmet in a fit of rage?  Well apparently, the Chinese have figured out one unique way to quell this destructive urge!  And the best part is that it’s for the ladies only!  For a small fee, women can take a bat and swing at anything on display in the store for 1 minute (Well, almost anything… store employees and walls aren’t allowed…)!

And finally…

For the campfire nerd in a Galaxy, far far away… – watch this, and then watch this, and then laugh while you slowly pull out your credit card to order…

And that sadly concludes our S.L.O.T.W. second posting!  We’re always looking for more links to feature on S.L.O.T.W.  If you have an awesome link or item that you’d like to have featured, don’t be afraid to shoot us an email at aniRAGE@anirage.com and put in the subject, “Sweet links of the week!”

Till next time guys!



I’m proud to debut aniRAGE’s newest weekly feature for the website, Sweet Links of the Week!

This is our newest feature on the aniRAGE website, and I’m here to tell you all about what SLOTW is all about

These are small portion of some of the most fun, wacky, and cool things you can find on the internet.  From news stories, games, to even stuff you can buy, if it’s awesome, you can bet it’ll show up here on our Sweet-ass Links of the Week!

And to start us off, is something that’s… well a little mix between awesome story and awesome thing you can buy. (Warning: May upset young children and PeTA)

1.  Canned Unicorn Meat (And the hillarious controversy around it) – The awesome guys at ThinkGeek have been putting out awesome gadgetry and other sweet-ass stuff for a good long time.  But checking back to their site recently, I was floored by the sight of this item on the website that was released on April Fools day, causing me giggle fits for a good 10 minutes.  It was ingenious, stupid, and just plain weird all at the same time.  But it also got them a lot of attention for a particularly funny slogan “Unicorn – the new white meat.”  Well apparently the National Pork Board didn’t find it funny… the whole story can be found on ThinkGeek’s website.

2. Old Man GaGa – This video only goes to show that just because you’re old doesn’t mean you’re the drag of the party.  In this instance, the complete opposite.  I’ve seen some old people dance before in my lifetime, but nothing like this.  This old man is so awesome, that he even has a couple of young whippersnappers to back him up.

And finally last… but not least for this week!

3.  Street Legal Lightcycle –  ….Holy crap… and you can buy one on Ebay… *grabby hands*

And that about does it for the debut of our newest feature here at aniRAGE!  Check back next friday as we bring you more Sweet Links of the Week!
