It's that time of the year again where Christmas tries to kick Hanukkah's ass with all sorts of glitz and glam; meanwhile all the lucky
Jewish kiddies are laughing their way through eight days of rad gifties.
We recently made a set of twelve Zodiac Buddy Icons for HipScopes.com that look a little something like this:
Go grab one if you dig astrology!

We recently made a small tweak to the homepage so that random avatars now come flying at you
like a bat out of hell (on a psychedelic merry-go-round). Even better, if you're on dial-up
or some other crappy connection, the animation will most likely wind up breaking half-way
through, making it look completely broken and totally pointless! Enjoy!!!

We Gave Tom a Badass Makeover!
...and we want to know what YOU think. Yes, YOU!
We happen to like him much better now, but we're not sure if you do. Leave a comment and let us know!
Chris' video will be aired on national TV and he'll also walk away with $50,000 CASH!
Chris is the mastermind behind Paintball Buddy,
our most popular buddy icon, as well as all avatars on the site and hundreds of other buddy icons. You're a pimp, Chris!
At last! It's that time of the year again when you need to stop being a wise-ass to the 'rents and start showing some
respect and appreciation. You don't want to wind up getting a crappy gift this year like a Religious-Quote-Of-The-Day Calendar or
a copy of Windows Vista™. Don't botch this! In the meantime, click the fat man to the left for 37 Christmas icons.

On Sep 24, 2010, BadassBuddy will be 10 years old.
A decade ago BadassBuddy.com went from 0 to Badass in about
2.5 lunar cycles(the Web's 21st fastest growing site at the time), and the birth of an Internet anti-hero turned into a fleeting past-time for millions of
chat-zombies around the globe (before SpaceBook took ownership of the majority of our free time). At times BadassBuddy was almost as impressive as the best xkcd ever!, with aspirations
of being just half as cool as the worst Homestar Runner ever. (..negatory..)
Unfortunately, pixel art has since been considered a dying art form, however the ninjas over at pixeljoint.com will show you
that pixel creativity is in fact still very much alive (and I know you still love retro video gaming when you're not FPS'ing and rocking out with pretend instruments).
So I'd like to wish BadassBuddy a happy 10 year anniversary, but more importantly I'd like to thank the brilliant artists, the mediocre artists (gotta start somewhere), the
blog entry contributors, the web designers and content managers, the rockingest server admin ever, and everybody else involved, for all of the hard work and
passion that went in to making a unique contribution to the interwebs.
It's baaaaack! Valentine's Day - as well as Lunar New Year - is just around the corner!
If you don't have any particular love in your life, just play it off like you're planning a crazy Lunar New Year celebration on February 14th and had completely forgotten about Valentine's Day(even though you can't go anywhere without seeing roses for sale, bright red decorations, pink teddy bears, and delicious teeth-rotting love-themed chocolates & candies). It's party time, singles!
The year is 2010. The planet: Earth. (The calendar: Gregorian apparently)
The Internet has become self-aware and is rapidly taking over the world by means of friend requests and tweets.
Mankind has been given two primary options: Facebook & Twitter... except the catch is that there is only one true option: submit to the Internet
(just don't double-click Submit).
Advanced Internets in distant parts of the Universe are collaborating to introduce Earth's Internet into the universal network of
interplanetary Spacewebs, beaming data from galaxy to galaxy like a super fast dial-up modem... only way faster. In some cases your emails
may get bounced back to you before you even send them thanks to black holes and Spock manning the email server.
Global Warming has decided to take a vacation (bring back something cool!) while Water Shortages tap-dance their way to center stage.
Meanwhile, we R all Bcoming much smartR thx 2 txt MSGing & better at expressing our feelings digitally using smiley faces, emoticons, avatars,
and buddy icons. :)))
THAT BEING SAID, HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR, BADASS BUDDIES!!!!!
Holidays: "hall uh daze" (n): time away from school, presents, free food... COUNT ME IN!
1. Get that last minute sheet-over-the-head ghost costume worked out so that you're mentally ready to accept gobs of candy from strangers.
2. Make sure everybody in your neighborhood is Tweeting on Halloween so that you can determine where the best candy is in the neighborhood in real time.
3. Go straight to the house that has the best candy, making sure to bring with you an empty pillow case, and strategically work your way back home hitting all the good spots, thereby minimizing time away from the PC.
Today we celebrate NINE YEARS of digital badassery. How will we celebrate nearly a decade of BadassBuddy antics? By staying up all night long chatting on the
Internet, of course! In honor of this memorable moment in history, we have added our first ever ANIMATED AVATARS which now work with
the brand new AIM 7™. ENJOY!!!
Growing up in a Single Parent Family can be a lifelong struggle for both children and parents alike. In Tim VandeSteeg's 'My Run',
see how one man, Terry Hitchcock - a TRUE badass - ran 75 consecutive marathons in 75 consecutive days to let
single parent families know that they're not alone. Peep the preview here.
Valentine's Day is right around the corner so if you've got a sig-other, you'd better start figuring out what's going to make or break your
relationship on V-Day! And if you're single, embrace it! Love isn't always an easy walk in the park. Oftentimes it's more like a sketchy
drive down a steep mountain with unreliable breaks and a flat tire.
