The Leo Strut

I've seen a couple of these around but, thanks to Adam, my eyes were opened to a whole new level of Leo Struttiness.

Watch out bubblegirl!

Well, Danny's safe now.

Art! (Not Garfunkel)

Artist and new friend, Erin McGarry, put the final touches on her website and is ready for the world!

Check it out here.
(The wallpaper alone is worth a click. I love the flow/scene as you scroll down).

And if you really need another reason, here are a few of my favorite pieces:





A little odd and kinda freaky, but wonderful to look at.

Prancing Michael Cera

The next meme.

The original image:

Clearly it must be made fun of...



In fact, there is a whole site dedicated to it: 'Fuck Yeah Prancing Cera'
Why they picked that name, I have no idea, but enjoy:

A fictional race, and he still lost to Usain Bolt

Pretty awesome.

But still doesn't replace my favorite:

A Case of the Mondays

Yes, it's only Monday...

At least these guys have it worse:


"There’s a railroad trestle over Gregson Street in Durham, North Carolina that has a clearance of only 11 feet, 8 inches. Truck drivers have been crashing into it since as early as 1956. The above video shows 13 crashes taking place there over a 13 month period"

.... Why??

"Kind of reminds me of watching Bledsoe take a sack in his prime. Just run straight backwards for 50 yards until there are 7 guys hanging all over you and then huck it to nobody and hope for the best…"

But these are much luckier:

In the News: August 29, 2010

It's been a while, so some of the stories are a little old...


Peru battles rabid vampire bats after 500 people bitten
They were sick of the lovey-dovey, sparkly, compassionate 'vampire' image.


"Peru's health ministry has sent emergency teams to a remote Amazon region to battle an outbreak of rabies spread by vampire bats.

Four children in the Awajun indigenous tribe died after being bitten by the bloodsucking mammals.

Health workers have given rabies vaccine to more than 500 people who have also been attacked."

Oxford Vault Contains Millions of Rejected Dictionary Words
Accordionated: Being able to drive and refold a road map at the same time


"Xenolexica is defined as "a grave confusion when faced with unusual words." Are you gravely confused? It's okay — the word was even rejected from the dictionary.

Millions of rejected words lie in a secret U.K. vault owned by the Oxford University Press, xenolexica included, according to the Telegraph. Deemed to be "unsuitable" for the Oxford English Dictionary, these words are written on 6x4 in. cards and stored, alphabetically, in filing cabinets. Some words date back to the early 1900s. These "non-words" are not rejected outright, because they could technically be used in future editions of the dictionary."

"Check out a few choice rejections, and see a longer list at the Telegraph."

Social Security: More going out than coming in
It's finally happened.


"For the first time in nearly 30 years, the system will pay out more benefits than it receives in payroll taxes both this year and next, the government officials who oversee Social Security said on Thursday.

And while Social Security cash flow will likely head back into the black for a few years after that, starting in 2015 it looks to stay in the red for the long haul, the trustees said in their annual report.

"The improving economy is expected to result in rough balance between Social Security taxes and expenditures for several years before the retirement of the baby boom generation swells the beneficiary population and causes deficits to grow rapidly," Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said."

Lyrics as Google Maps Directions

The only thing better than good song lyrics are good song lyrics embedded into pop-culture.


Now this is a story all about how...

Sunday Comics, and other things

Comics:

Sometimes I really wonder how we're the same species...
I mean I know why. (We're capable of mating and creating fertile offspring). But sometimes the fact that we even continue to want to anymore...

Yes, Joaquin Phoenix has been making a documentary.
'I'm Still Here', directed by Casey Affleck.
From IMDB: "I'm Still Here is a portrayal of a tumultuous year in the life of actor Joaquin Phoenix. With remarkable access, the documentary follows the Oscar-nominee as he announces his retirement from a successful film career in the fall of 2008 and sets off to reinvent himself as a hip hop musician."
Ummm... Pass.

Song of the Moment: Sugarland - Stuck Like Glue

Not overly enthused about this song, but it's really catchy and the music video is awesome.
It even has Captain Awesome in it!



I also like to think of Sugarland as a better version of what Lady Antebellum could have been.
Of all the good country, I can't believe 'Need You Now' was the one that made the pop charts.

I'm Not Dead!

Hello readers!

No, I did not die. I was merely on vacation for the past week.
But if I don't post for two weeks, someone please send the police over to my house.

Anyway, here are a few videos while I put together a more substantial post:

Just a quickie.


iPad Owners Are ‘Selfish Elites.’ Critics Are ‘Independent Geeks.’ Discuss.
Phew. Glad I don't own an iPad now.


"Consumer research firm MyType conducted the study, in which opinions of 20,000 people were analyzed between March and May. The firm’s conclusion was that iPad owners tend to be wealthy, sophisticated, highly educated and disproportionately interested in business and finance, while they scored terribly in the areas of altruism and kindness. In other words, “selfish elites.”

They are six times more likely to be “wealthy, well-educated, power-hungry, over-achieving, sophisticated, unkind and non-altruistic 30-50 year olds,” MyType’s Tim Koelkebeck told Wired.com.

96 percent those most likely to criticize the iPad, on the other hand, don’t even own one, although as geeks, they were slightly more likely to do so than the average population — and far more likely to have an opinion about the device one way or the other (updated). This group tends to be “self-directed young people who look down on conformity and are interested in videogames, computers, electronics, science and the internet,” said Koelkebeck."

Remains of John the Baptist found in Bulgaria?
Go Biblical archaeology!


"Archaeologists in Bulgaria claim they have found remains of John the Baptist while excavating the site of a 5th century monastery on the Black Sea island of Sveti Ivan.

A reliquary – a container for holy relics – discovered last week under the monastery’s basilica was opened on Sunday and found to contain bone fragments of a skull, a hand and a tooth, Bulgaria’s official news agency BTA reported."

Meat of cloned cow offspring in UK food chain, FSA says
Europeans are crazy... Cloned meat is delicious! (And will feed the world)


"Meat from the offspring of a cloned cow was eaten in the UK last year, the Food Standards Agency has said.

Two bulls from the embryos of a cow cloned in the US were bought by a farm near Nairn in the Highlands, and meat from one was sold to consumers.

Farmer Steven Innes told the BBC he had done nothing wrong and the animal had authorisation to enter the food chain.

FSA chief Tim Smith said he had no safety concerns but any suppliers would require approval under European law.

The FSA said it had "traced two bulls born in the UK from embryos harvested from a cloned cow in the US"."

Oddly enough, these two videos have been making the rounds at the same time.


First up we have Paul Rudd... as a Bar Mitzvah DJ in 1992.



And second is Ms. 30 Rock, Tina Fey, in a bank commercial from 1995.



I'm just glad they both changed their hairstyles...

Here we go again...

"Just when you thought the Keanu Reeves craze sparked in early June by a paparazzi photo of the actor looking sad and eating a sandwich had calmed down, another photo of Keanu has blown up, threatening to take the Internet down with it.


In the 13 hours since this picture first appeared on Reddit with the submission heading “Oh shit, not again,” it’s inspired Photoshops galore, wardrobe dissections, and, of course, pun threads."

Apparently someone came across these photos:


Coming off the coattails of Sad Keanu, naturally it spawned these:
