"You know, I really love to sing. I really do. And my friends make fun of me all the time, because I'm tone deaf... ...But, even if I don't sing, I can be the next American Idol..."

I'm into knowledge. This is an interview with Dr. Richard Feynman- one of the greatest physicists of our times and a Nobel Laureate. He was into knowledge, too. Wow, that's quite an understatement. Anyway, this is called "The Pleasure Of Finding Things Out".

James Adomian does a killer impersonation of George W. Bush. Although he doesn't look too much like him, his body language, facial expressions and mangling of the english language combine to make a very funny facsimile.

The supporting cast is hilarious too, especially David Hoffman as a very unhinged Dick Cheney.

Wilford Brimley is a legend. A living legend. A legend that will live on far after all other living legends are gone. In this game, Beat The Beetis, use the mouse to move Wilford left and right. Catch the diabetes supplies (from Liberty Medical, natch) that drop from the top of the screen. Avoid the sugary snacks! Keep that blood sugar under control!

Orville Deadenbacher. A line has definitely been crossed here. In this commercial, the ghoulish, reanimated corpse of Orville Redenbacher (who died in 1995) returns from the grave to hawk popcorn. THE MAN IS DEAD, YOU CORPORATE FUCKS. This is tasteless and creepy at best. I suppose it was inevitable.

"Wow. Those unnatural herky-jerky movements, that ridiculous dead marionette face, those empty, empty eyes, and that look of complete horror on the face of the guy at the coffee machine when he realizes that a re-animated corpse is talking about MP3 players no more than 5 feet away—I've never craved some light, buttery popcorn more. I can practically taste its microwaved goodness right now: salty, crunchy yet airy, expertly fluffed by lifeless, decaying hands. Yum!"

"did you see his skeletal claw-hand thing reach into the microwave and snatch away the popcorn like it was embalming fluid? ew." - the jace

"Man that popcorn commercial is borderline unwatchable. I keep waiting for someone in the commercial to say "I thought you were dead!", because at least then I'd know it was a joke. " - byrd

" I'm going to be having nightmares of Zombie-Orville for the next three months. I'm so glad the commercials don't play on TV where I live or else I would really freak out. - val

"But this is far, far worse. ......than making Fred Astaire dance with a vacuum cleaner -- at least then it was real footage of him. This is....horrifying. - Paul

"A whole generation of children will be afraid to open the cabinet where the popcorn is kept in fear that "He Who Pops" will be there, waiting to take them kicking and screaming into his Hot Buttered Hell. - Hugh Douche II

"Humans! is a 60 second global awareness PSA sensationalizing the excessive, all-consuming nature of the human being. This cute and naive Earth stands no chance against such an insatiable parasite. Witness its utter demise in a fun and sickening kind of way. " - from aniBOOM

Contact lenses. I wear them, but never knew (or even thought about) how they were manufactured. It's more involved than I would have imagined.

(Indiana Jones)

A fourth Indiana Jones film is now officially in the works. It should be interesting, because Harrison Ford is now older than Sean Connery was when he played Indy's father in Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade! It will be great to see Ford as Jones again, no matter what, though. Even if it's Raiders Of The Lost Youth.

Here's a website by Indy Magnoli, an uber-fan who has created a collection of uncanny prop replicas from the Indy films:

All of the results from the T.V. show MYTHBUSTERS are listed here:


Running a car with air conditioning on is more fuel efficient than running with the windows down. (From episode 22)

partly confirmed.

The fundamental flaw in the MythBusters' test was that the point where the drag becomes powerful enough to inhibit a car's performance with windows down was inside their 45 - 55mph margin at 50mph. Going less than 50mph it is more efficient to leave your windows down, but going greater than 50mph it is more efficient to use your A/C.

"Whole Wheat Radio (WWR) is a listener controlled, internet-only webcast and wiki website based in Talkeetna, Alaska, centered around independent music aired 24 hours a day, that is financially and operationally maintained by an all-volunteer community as a grassroots alternative to mainstream media. WWR's listener driven webcast and real-time interactive community, distinguish it from other streaming webcasts, social music networks, and peer to peer music file sharing websites.....
...Though Jim Kloss and Esther Golton host WWR from their home in Talkeetna, listeners control the music and other on-air content heard throughout the day through the website's request pages....
...To listen to the Whole Wheat Radio webcast, participate in the chat and/or contribute to the wiki a listener needs only a computer, an internet connection, a software music player and a browser....
....WWR's technological innovations have facilitated the growth of a small virtual community that is driven by the audience and not station management. Known as
Wheatheads, regular listeners interact in a "chat room", request, rate and tag music, send original music, write to artists and create wiki pages.
An example of technology reaching the world from a small rural town in Alaska, WWR's low-profile adult format succeeds without typical web advertising or competitive musical hype. Typically, WWR reaches more
SHOUTcast listeners on a daily basis than any other webcast originating in Alaska." - from Wikipedia

I just checked WWR out after hearing about it many times on J-Walk. The music is fantastic, and the people are great!

Theme: If animals ran our corporations


I love movies. And I just found an awesome movie resource, a site called GreenCine, which offers a variety of movie services, including downloadable rentals and DVD rental by mail (ala NetFlix).

The best part (if you like to read about movies) is their series of PRIMERS:

"Going along with GreenCine's belief that DVDs are not just entertainment but film-schools-in-a-box, we're happy to introduce you to our own form of film education: Primers. They are meant to be a fun introductory overview of major film genres and movements, and to serve as handy guides in your rental selection process. The primers, written by a mix of GreenCine staff writers and outside experts, will highlight the representative films of each genre available at GreenCine."

A few of their excellent primers:

James Bond
Zombie Movies
Time Travel Movies
Science Fiction

Q. What is Engrish?

A. Engrish can be simply defined as the humorous English mistakes that appear in Japanese advertising and product design.....

....Most of the Engrish found on is not an attempt to communicate - English is used as a design element in Japanese products and advertising to give them a modern look and feel (or just to "look cool"). There is often no attempt to try to get it right, nor do the vast majority of the Japanese population (= consumers) ever attempt to read the English design element in question....
...There is therefore less emphasis on spell checking and grammatical accuracy (note: the same can be said for the addition of Japanese or Chinese characters to hats, shirts and tattoos found in the US or Europe).
