A gameboy? A lava lamp? A sugar cube? It sure is, especially if you are gonna make a Youtube series. Here’s the obviously fun to watch lava lamp warming.

More? Of course, I know. Here’s the link to the rest.

Presenting Yoda the four-eared kitty cat.

Yes, a Chicago citizen (Watch your back, Micah), and a nice addition to the plenty of monsters in our nation and around the globe, circa summer 2008. Here’s the read.

 Thanks Gawker. And thanks again for also recognizing this spectacular summer phenomonon.

Hottt Filmmaker on Filmmaker Interviews

Posted in casual sex, film, men, tubes, white people with tags , on August 19, 2008 by John

These directors love interviewing each other.  Truffaut and Hitch made a book (Truffaut and Hitch sounds like a great buddy cop picture BTW), Morris and Herzog made a little movie and do interviews on the internet. And now there’s Woody and Godard. They contrast each other so much, which makes for a good interview.  But they both still hate TV.  Oh, filmmakers.


Indian Rubber

OH, and I love India:

A cellphone ringtone that chants “condom, condom!” has been launched in India to promote safe sex and tackle the growing HIV/AIDS epidemic. The “condom a cappella” has been designed to break down Indians’ reluctance to discuss condom use and to make wearing a condom more acceptable. Organisers of the campaign, funded by the foundation set up by Microsoft mogul Bill Gates and his wife Melinda, hope the ringtone will become a craze among young Indians.” Read more here. And catch the tune here.

Thanks again, Buzzfeed.

Phelps: The Douche Bag?

Posted in 2008, melty faces, sandwiches, summer, white people with tags , on August 19, 2008 by Shiv

Best week ever, along with many other sites reflect on M Phelps’s sometimes obvious, sometimes subtle traits of an all-star, gold medal douche bag. Plus, I’d like to eat 5 fried egg sandwiches for breakfast like this d-bag does and get away with it = Douche.

Long time no update.

Hello guys,
Its been a long time. I have moved into a new apartment (center and sycamore) and am living the HTD life without power until Wednesday. I’m at Lucca now, I wish you were here. Anyway, here are a few links and things:

Vice Magazine’s website usually has some pretty interesting content, right now to parallel the Olympics, they have a lot on China. If you want to hear about Communist censorship of the internet, Beijing’s underground punk scene, or the most polluted city in the world check it out.

Speaking of the Olympics did anyone see Michael Bolt? That guy rules.

On Friday I listened to a really interesting piece on NPR about what makes chili peppers hot.

There is a boat show on Tuesday if anyone in the area is interested.

I think that is all for now. See you again soon.
p.s. Bummer about Bigfoot.
