How to make onigiri (Japanese rice balls)

onigiri

Very simple, very yummy.
Depending on where you live it can be tricky to get some of the ingredients. Luckily I was able to find nori and sushi rice as people seem to like sushi over here in the Netherlands, unfortunately they’re comparatively pricey at the average grocery store, with the nori costing up to 4.5 euros for 4 small sheets. Some of the stuff listed in the other videos I know are going to be impossible to source here.
The only thing I didn’t get from the cooking video is exactly how the hell they can roll balls out of hot rice with their bare hands. They must have fire proof hands (or wait for it to get cold, but it doesn’t seem that way in the video):

Superhero

XIII
Click on the piccy for the big version.

Here’s my entry for the superhero topic we’ve got going on the forum where you have to take a picture of yourself and use whatever image editor / drawing program to turn yourself into a superhero.
Picture and posing is me obviously, all the editing has been done by my wife who now officially beats the crap out of me when it comes to mad gfx skills.

Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock Holmes
“Detective Sherlock Holmes and his stalwart partner Watson engage in a battle of wits and brawn with a nemesis whose plot is a threat to all of England.”
Sounds good.
Looks good too if you check out this trailer. It’s great to see someone finally making a new Sherlock Holmes movie.

Bye bye last.fm?

Read this if you’re using last.fm. This could be the final nail in their coffin (next to charging for the radio).

5 Minutes of fame

5_minutes_of_fame

Zomg, I was like, totally famous for 5 minutes. Myeah, maybe not. I was however on the front page of 5minutesfame.com for 5 minutes, showing off my last tweets and my twitter profile, just because I was the first to enter my name in that 5 minute timespan.
All of that gained me a massive 1 new follower on Twitter. Time to sink back into obscurity.

Make your own planet

It’s always nice to come across a tutorial that actually works, I lost track of how many times I followed a tut and the jump from penultimate to final stage was huge and unexplained.
This one however turns out just fine.

JCVD

jean_claude_van_damme

Definitely one to watch, JCVD stars Jean-Claude van Damme as himself in what must be one of the most ironic movies ever as the whole thing is part parody/reflection of his own past as a person as well as his career in the shall we say less high profile movies.
