Farewell Taco Bell Dog

July 27, 2009

In the saddest news of the summer, Gidget, aka the Taco Bell Dog,  has bit the dust :

You can see the 2-minute video about it on cnn here:

Taco Bell Dog Video – Breaking News Videos from CNN.com. I know just how to mourn this tragedy. (I am going to go eat some Taco Bell just in case I wasn’t being clear enough.)

In deaths I am sick of hearing about: Michael Jackson. Because Micheal jackson will always be with us… he is not biodegradable. If I am going to have to hear about it nonstop, let us at least make light of the situation with some good old Michael Jackson jokes :

Ok, so I feel a little bad for posting that. In order too balance out the malicious with the nice, here is a cool tribute to MJ:

Eternal moonwalk – A tribute to Michael Jackson. If anyone wants to add a video tribute with me, I’d be more than happy to oblige.

 

In other anticlimactic news, there has finally been a video release of LeBron James “getting dunked on” I use those quotations because the video shows that he was barely even defending the guy, and the whole charade surrounding this video is just absurd :

Witnesses at last: Video of LeBron James getting dunked on – Ball Don’t Lie… – NBA – Yahoo! Sports.

In other absurd news, here is a ridiculous news story about a bear in Cleveland. I forgot how stupid everyone in Ohio is, including reporters :

Ridiculous News Report About Bears In Cleveland – DoubleViking Video .

The reporter’s reenactment is just priceless.

 

Lastly, I will share some awesome photography with you all (not be me of course). The first is a picture by Michael Hudgen who includes souvenirs into pictures of famous things. For example:

You can see the rest of Michael Hudgen’s pictures here :

 Or if that is too cheesy for your taste, maybe you’d prefer super slow motion pictures of  a bubble bursting? That’s what I thought :

I needs it

July 20, 2009

Hey All,

I decided to add a new set of postings called “Things I need”. Often I find things on the internet that either I “need”, or that one of you “need”, so this will give me a chance to share those things without making a long post of all the interesting articles, pictures or weirdo games that are available on the internets.

First needed Item: No-wash underwear. For only 10 bucks they are practically irresistible. Don’t you get annoyed at how often you have to wash underwear. Unlike shoes, you have to wash them every time you use them. Man is that a hassle. Well, not anymore. 

You can buy them at:  NO-WASH™ UNDERWEAR Home Page.

Terrible Tats and Asia is fricken weird

July 16, 2009

Recently one of my associates at work made the big mistake of getting a permanent tattoo on her body. To honor that mistake, I found a site that has other people who made a mistake by getting these terrible animal tattoos on their bodies. Although I have to say that I do l0ve this tattoo that has the Taz riding on a unicorn : Hey Look, Animals!: 22 Worst Animal Tattoos Ever

In other news, here are six islands I won’t be visiting anytime soon: 6 Real Islands Way More Terrifying Than The One On ‘Lost’ | Cracked.com

Not that i am much of a beach person anyway.

Weird event happens in Asia, somehow I am not the least bit surprised: Sky ‘rains tadpoles’ over Japan – Telegraph

At least it wasn’t Godzilla. And in other weird Asian news, Cat Cafes have become all of the rage:

Tokyo Cat Cafes | Calico. Actually this seems like a brilliant idea. People are lonely and want a pet, but don’t want to responsibility to have a pet of their own. So they pay to touch your pets. Very smart thinking Tokyo.

I have plenty channels on my television, and yet I can’t help but wish that I could get this Turkish television program broadcast on my TV (in English of course, I don’t speak Turkish to my knowledge) :

And lastly some interesting mailboxes to look at:

Zombies in boring books and Glow in the dark Beagles

July 2, 2009

Someone finally wrote a version of Pride and Prejudice I would actually read. It’s called Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

You can buy it on Amazon and everything: Amazon.com: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance – Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem!: Jane Austen, Seth Grahame-Smith: Books.

They should do this with almost all the books I had to read during high school.

I love when former NASA technology plays a role in bra creations. What were the odds?

You can read about it here: Wahey and up she rises | The Sun |Woman|Health|Health

and here:Well hello boys! It’s the smart bra that just grows on you | Mail Online.

Also this week, I happened to see a tv show on spike (big shocker) called Man Vs. Beast. On it Kobayashi entered a hot dog eating contest against a Kodiac bear, Shawn Crawford raced a giraffe and a zebra, An Elephant and 44 midgets competed in pulling a plane, An Orangutan and a sumi wrestler in tug of war,  and a US seal raced a chimp through an obstacle course.

Instead of telling you what happened, I found the videos online of such shenanigans:

YouTube – Man Vs. Beast Takeru “Tsunami” Kobayashi Vs. Oso Kodiak.

YouTube – Sumo Vs Orangutan.

YouTube – Elephant vs. Little People.

YouTube – Man vs Beast Shawn Crawford racing.

YouTube – Chimp vs. Navy Seal.

And from the 2nd man vs. beast: 

YouTube – Man vs Beast 2 – Gymnast vs Orangutan

 

And if all that animal news excites you, wait till you hear this. The Koreans have cloned a beagle, except just for fun, it also glows in the dark! Ok, so they did it for the good of the scientific community, yada yada. I just think they needed a flashlight…

And last, but never least is a video game about your first time. First time doing what you might ask, well just read on…
