SHE SAID: Case of the Mondays?

February 7, 2011

Every once in a while I come across something online that lights up my life, even if only for a few seconds until my attention span lapses and I move on to something new and flash filled. This website was one of those rare finds that I have to share. I recommend the little blue fish. Thanks to Kate and her family for sending along.

Here is my favorite ad from the super bowl. I got to see it a few days earlier thanks to my friend Jess:

Some of the worst tweets in twitter history. The list was compiled after Kenneth Cole’s incredibly tasteless tweet this past week: “Millions are in uproar in #Cairo. Rumor is they heard our new spring collection is now available online… -KC.”

A montage of the best sports pep talks in movies and TV. This made me want to watch Miracle again ….


HE SAID: Winter

January 25, 2011

FYI, the following is being written from the comforts of my own home…where I’m sitting under a blanket, wearing long johns, sweats and a flannel shirt.  The sun has just set outside, it is approximately -4 degrees before the windchill, and we are expecting another major snowstorm later this week.  But be aware, I am not complaining, I am merely writing down factual statements.  Why am I not complaining? You may ask…Because it is the middle of winter in effing Vermont, and unless I am being forced to live here against my will, I have no right to complain. Ok, maybe not being forced against my will, but you get my point.

And yes, I get it, the last couple of days have been pretty darn brutal, even close to record breaking, in fact. Don’t get me wrong, I am not a fan of lows of negative -27 with a windchill of -40, but when I woke up this morning praying my pipes didn’t freeze and my car would start (thank you, C.G. Johnson – alleged inventor of the garage door), I realized two very important things: 1. I have absolutely, no control over the weather and 2. I can move, really quite easily. With regards to #1, spare me your tree-hugging, hippie liberal BS about my effect on the environment.  Yes, I realize that there are many things I could do better to control my effect on the environment, just don’t mention global warming to me when my private parts have ascended back into my stomach.  And as for #2, I just don’t want to.  I’d rather put up with X amount of days of absolute crap weather, because I love it here.

So the title of this post could have been way better, but at its crux, this post is about winter…and all the assholes who complain non-stop about it.  It’s times like this that I hate things like twitter and facebook (wait, that’s not true, clearly I am obsessed, but still), with friends constantly reminding me about how miserable it is outside. Trust me, I am aware of it.

Or maybe I’m still bitter about the Patriots losing to the Jets, and I’m simply taking it all out on you. Not quite all, there is some of my blood on a hand-dryer in one of the Newark International Airport bathrooms thanks to that shitshow. Yet, I digress.

It’s good to be back.

Ok, so a departure from the norm for me, I’m going to get somewhat serious. Steve Nash tweeted last week “I’m pro-creative and individualism. 90% of gay teens being harassed is embarrassing to human race.”  In a culture where that stat is actually true, and also in a culture where athletes are typically making off the field news for less than positive actions, here is a great piece on some athletes that are attempting to change both cultures. Now time for fun…

In commemoration of Jackass: 3D coming out this Friday (and gender equality), collegehumor presents Jackass for Women.

For anyone that watched last night’s football game between the Eagles & the 49ers, and for even those that didn’t, check out the tweets about the game from SportsPickle.  I only wish I could be this clever…I’m just not smart enough to come up with “Alex Smith is awesome!!! If there was a pick BEFORE No. 1 overall, that’s where Alex Smith should have gone.”

I’m not sure how many people watch Jimmy Kimmel & and have seen his Unnecessary Censorship/Ode to the FCC skits (where they bleep out regular words to make it look like they were four letter words and whatnot), but below I present his ode to Mr. Rogers –

I posted this once before, but now it’son youtube so I get to embed it.  This airs tomorrow at 8pm on ESPN.  And I’m not doing this to be a d*ck to my Yankee fan friends, but our season just ended yesterday, you get to move on…deal with it.

(ps the man in the freeze frame is Dave Roberts, in case you didnt’ know. He stole the most important base in MLB history…)

For anyone that played simcity, especially the early versions, this collegehumor video is well worth your 90 seconds.

_______________

Here are a bunch of Social Network parody trailers (twitter, myspace, etc)…for what it’s worth the actual movis was damned good.

Since I’m not sure I’ll be able to make my car payment this month, tough for me to donate…however posting this link is hopefully helping out in some way.  No worries either way, but at least click on it, read about it, and think about it.

Anyone else have to work today? I do.  But given I’ve got about 15 five day weekends coming up, I’ll suck it up. So for anyone else stuck in an office, this is for you…

I bet all parties involved are from the NY/NJ metro area.

Here is a link to Bill Simmons podcasts, I strongly urge you go and check out his two-parter in celebration of 9.02.10 day.

Some pretty awesome pics of Hurricane Earl…from outer space…and some from the ground.

Red Sox injuries, Team USA losing, Team England losing (my backup), American men besides Andy Roddick falling left and right at Wimbledon…the sports gods were not kind to me this weekend, so if anyone needs some fun links it’s me…and probably plenty of you.

I am extremely excited about this film, even though I have absolutely NO idea what it’s actually about.

Notice the scoreboard...

If any of you care about tennis, or sports in general, check out the wiki entry for the John Isner/Nicolas Mahut Wimbledon match.  This is something you will never see again in sports.

Current twitter feeds I’m enjoying:

Michael Ian Black, Jason Biggs (yes, the pie effer), Nate Robinson (it’s absurd, his whole life is on here)

I can’t seem to get the cast of Arrested Development back together, and trust me I have tried.  Orbit’s new dirty shorts are as close as I can get.

I have been watching a little bit of soccer lately … a little thing called the World Cup is keeping me entertained through the recent rain storms.  Frankly, I’m surprised I hear women griping about having to watch this.  Not only is it a fantastic event and the sport a dazzling display of athleticism, but the gentlemen who partake in this sport are by and large GORGEOUS.  Here is a ranking of the arguably best looking soccer players in this World Cup.

Here are some absolutely gorgeous shots of underwater ballerinas. After my underwater base jumping video last week and this, it seems I’m going through an underwater phase.

For all you designers and artists out there, here is a fun game.  Note: non-artistic types will not be entertained by this while sober.

Twitter.  Some would argue it’s a waste of time.  This golf game, which one could also argue is a waste of time, relies on twitter – the yardage of your shot is based on how popular your word is on twitter in the last 20 seconds.

In related news, the New York Times has banned the word tweet.  Jeremy banned it almost a full year ago from his vocabulary.  That’s right, folks: my boys a visionary.
