Minecraft Cookie Cutters
Normally wouldn’t post anything related to home baking since I can’t do it myself, but I’ve been thinking of cookies since I woke up today and stumbled across this. ThinkGeek is selling officially licensed Minecraft cookie cutters for $20. I actually think they’re pretty cool and the tin they come in are neat as well, granted you can actually bake and craft icing lines into shape, which is something I can’t do for the life of me.
Great Micro-short Documentary on Minecraft and Kids
Britt McTammany brings us a compelling and beautifully shot micro-short on Minecraft and how it brings gamers, particularly younger kids, together. It’s incredible to see how well the young subjects of the documentary work together to achieve a common goal.
This short raises a lot of interesting things about Minecraft and make me want to see more. Hopefully, the subject can be tackled by Britt in a longer format.

Pixel art community Pixel Joint recently had a jam session in which they asked their members to created their own pixelated currency and the results were all pretty awesome, but my favorites are these geeky jumpoffs inspired by Pac-Man, Minecraft, Space Invaders, Street Fighter, and Doctor Who. Check ‘em past the break.
You Got Pokeymangs In My Minecraft!
This is a pretty epic looking Pokemon mod for Minecraft by a dude calling himself SeaGoingManatee and his co-coder Pwootage. It’s called Pokemobs, and while there’s only a few Pokemon available so far, the plan is to eventually incorporate a battling system and all of the original 151 ‘Monz.
Looks like I’ll finally have to break down and download a copy of Minecraft.
Thanks for the tip, Jacob!
Oh, hey look! It’s a video of MineCraft Pocket Edition running on the Xperia Play Android phone from Sony Ericsson. I’m a wee bit bummed that this game is coming to Android before iOS, but whatevs. More info will most likely trickle out during E3 where Xperia Plays will be on hand running MineCraft PE for attendees to play. Lucky attendees. I hate all of them.
Sometimes do you feel like your Minecraft world might be a little more exciting if you dropped acid before you played? No? Well you should still check out this Acid Trip Shader Mod.
To acheive this effect I used the GLSL shaders mod:
And this custom shader:
copy it to a txt file then rename the txt to - base.vsh then making sure to backup your existing, base.vsh drag it into the shaders folder located inside your minecraft.jar (once the GLSL shaders mod is installed of course)

New Minecraft trailer is weird, mildly racist? Let this be a lesson to all prepubescent teens out there: punch stereotypical black thuggish dudes in the face, get diamonds.
If you have any doubts about the awesomeness of Minecraft, just check this out. The entire Kanto region from Pokemon Red and Blue made in Minecraft! This is absolutely unbelievable, and they even made Victory Road, the Power Plant, and the Seafoam Island caves where you can find Moltres, Zapdos, and Articuno, respectively. If you want to play on it, and own Minecraft, just click here. If you happen to not own Minecraft yet, but want to get it, just click here.
