Here are some new PSAs by NSW Police in Australia, trying to raise awareness of the number of teens who are killed by cars while crossing the street wearing iPods.

My [younger] ninjas, PLEASE! Be aware of your surroundings while walking down the street, rockin’ out.

Eye Candy: Nils Norman

Most times, when stealing content from one of our microsites, like the post below from Arch.MNP, we just give you an excerpt. Today I figured we would give you the whole post from our illustrious microsite, a macrosite in its own right, and encourage you to head on over there and check it out. They have good weekly features and plenty of content over there.

This week’s Eye Candy [a Wednesday feature we would like to make more regular here on architecture.MNP, along with the Ninja Arithmetic posts] features the work of London-based artist Nils Norman. Read more about Nils here, over at Archinect.

::Eye Candy is a weekly post on exactly what it sounds like - something cool to look at, whether because the project is ill or simply because it warrants a ‘my ninjas, please’. Find it here on architecture.MNP every Wednesday along with the Ninja Arithmetic feature - because hump-day is a bitch for ninjas, too::

Check out the rest of MNP Network as well, you won’t be disappointed.

A Day of Absurdities

And introduce an element of cynicism and darkness into it and just realize that we’re all vulnerable. We are humans. There is a finite end to this life and we’re all going to face it and a little silliness can help.

What’s up Ninjas. From the people who, last week, brought you A Day of Quandaries, we now present to you A Day of Absurdities. So, how is this different from any other day on MyNinjaPease? Well it’s not really. But we’ve got some exceptionally goofy things from the realm of the internets for you fine folk. The Japanese Show of the Week is up - and - for the curious, there are like a hundred episodes of Human Tetris on YouTube. It’s no wonder we find some of this stuff.

So, my boys were over here and we were doing some real macho man-stuff in between watching YouTube on an iPhone and Chef-fing [yes] up some French [Fraunch] Toast. That’s when Keith decided to show the Ock this serial show on YouTube called Kenny vs. Spenny [apparently it's off of some CBC show called The Hour]. It’s basically about two roomates who compete in foolish contests and competitions and video tape them. One of them always cheats, and, it’s pretty hilarious. It’s also pretty hit-or-miss.

Thanks to Keith and Chaz for their contributions to this edition of MNP. Just try and find the interspersed high brow content today, mofo!

Never stay up on the barren heights of cleverness, but come down into the green valleys of silliness.

Japanese Show of the Week #3

I can promise you, these will not get any less ridiculous - especially since I heard tell of a gameshow involving pigs, naked ladies, and peanut butter. I’m on the lookout for that one.
