video: Oh my god, look at your skin!

Chris mentioned Coupling in his blog and Peter Serafinowicz mentioned this video in his twitter stream… must be some kinda fate thing in the air. It gave me a nice chuckle: It’s actually very much like the fake ads Peter...

quotes: wait, who said that?

This page has been giving me the laughs I’ve sorely needed all day. MightyGodKing has taken some pictures from the recent political campaign and matched the images of a popular everyman with the words of another. I think it works...

video: let me axe you something…

Another video holiday moment, this time from Futurama–cartoons are much easier to edit while on the road. I hope that this Xmas day finds everyone happy, content, lazy and/or hungover. Whether you’re surrounded by loved ones, taking it easy on...

UI: touchy-feely is still fine by me

This all started with a shared item from Kris’ Google Reader: FluidTunes Controls iTunes by Your Waving Hand. It actually looks pretty cool, your MacBook’s camera picks up your movements in relation to certain controls on the screen and you...

bloggers: TMI? No such thing!

I would like to say that Live It, Love It’s TMI Thursday entry, while potentially unsettling for some, just cracked me the hell up. I won’t give it away, but here’s a snippet: It was absolutely awful. I was getting...

Oh yeah, you betcha!

This is the last day before my friend & co-worker Betsy goes out for her maternity leave or some such thing, it sounds made up to me. While she’s out, I’m once again in charge of the team for a...

video: America’s Greatest Pastime indeed!

Phillies outfielder Matt Stairs’ comments after a game-winning home run against the Dodgers a week ago Monday, saying how it was a top pinch-hit moment for him: When you get that nice celebration coming into the dugout and you’re getting...

Back to (Prop) 8 for a minute

I absolutely love this ad produced for No On Prop 8: More videos here. Like many things, this issue should be a no-brainer, but I really like the simple analogy presented above. I also marvel at how the simple staging...

I just want clean clothes!

Up at the crack of dawn again today, but on a workday you don’t mind it so much. You can roll over and the alarm will wake you up again, or you can take a longer hot shower or maybe...

FoodBeer!

FoodBeer! Ya gotta love it. It’s like watching an old film about or going on a World’s Fair/Epcot tour of The Kitchen of Tomorrow. “No time to stop off at the bar with the fellas after work? Just make sure...

Unlimited Power!!!

Allow me to–probably–misquote Are You Being Served: Miss Brahms: What’s it like having so much power? Capt. Peacock: Frightening! That’s sort of how I feel being queer. We apparently have a staggering amount of power over world events. Just recently,...
