KenyaI’m not sure why, but I’m pretty sure this is my favorite video on the internet. I really hope "Only in Kenya" becomes the next "Crazy Frog."  Watch it now!

After watching the video for about 4 minutes I thought, "I hope this never ends." Then, at about the 12 minute mark I thought, "Okay, nevermind." But still.

What’s your favorite part? Is it the adorable dancing lion?  Is it the random calling out of Norway? Is it the song? Or is it the slogan "Kenya Believe It?"

I don’t know what mine is, but I do know one thing: I want to go to Kenya. Because they have lions and tigers.


Dick Hunt

Dick_hunt_1I was wondering when the first Dick Cheney / Duck Hunt video would get posted on the internet. It didn’t take long at all.

Now, by no means is this overly entertaining. Unless of course you happen to be a big Aerosmith fan or a big fan of watching somebody repeatedly getting their head shot off. If either of those two things sound appealing, click here.

If not, don’t click. Instead, just feel good about the fact that Dick Cheney shooting a man in the face is probably the least evil thing he’s done all week.


While You Were Shoveling


If you live in the North East you know what I’m talking about. Here’s what you missed while you were digging your car out:

  • Busta Rhymes missed his bodyguard’s funeral. But don’t give him a hard time; he was far too busy trying to keep y’all in check.
  • Kate Moss is worried that she’s losing her short-term memory. And that everybody in the room is looking at her. And that 7-11 will be all out of Ho-Ho’s when she gets there.
  • NBC is planning its own version of American Idol. Yes! Finally! A reason to not watch NBC!
  • Chris Martin of Coldplay says the band’s next album will be the greatest album in history. And it will contain the best song ever. And it’ll be titled "Revolver." And all the songs will be written and performed by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr.
  • The 130th Westminster’s Kennel Club Dog Show goes down tonight at Madison Square Garden. I hear it’s the place to be to pick up bitches.


Cookie Monster: More Metal Than You

Cookie_monsterTake a good look at the picture to the left people. THIS is the face of heavy metal.

Cookie Monster. To some, Mr. Monster is just a loveable muppet who resides on Sesame Street and enjoys indulging in the occasional cookie or 3. To others, he’s a heavy metal inspiration. The voice of a generation. A furry blue, balls-out, hard-rocking, unapologetic, barely-understandable touchstone that has influenced heavy-metal singers since the 1980’s. Don’t believe me? Hey, it was in the Wall Street Journal’s Op/Ed section this month, it must be true.

Death-metal vocalizing is also
known as Cookie Monster singing, if not in tribute to, at least in
acknowledgment of, the "Sesame Street" puppet that blurts in a guttural
growl, his words discharged so rapidly that they tend to collide with
each other. (keep reading here)

So if you’re one of those people who had trouble taking heavy-metal seriously before, I’m sorry, but now it’s going to be damn near impossible. You’re not going to be able to listen to Motorhead without thinking about how many cookies Lemmy ate on his way to the studio. If anything, this just proves what I’ve been saying for ages: The Muppets are the most influential musical artists ever. Don’t even get me started on the Animal-inspired school of drumming. Animal play! Yayayayayaya!!!!

Special thanks to Product Shop NYC for brightening up my not-so-heavy-metal Monday with this story.


Worth1000: X-Ray Vision

Worth1000 is the best site on the net for cool photoshop contests. And this X-Ray Vision one they posted this week is one of the coolest ones yet.

Check it out here. Some are fun, some are creepy, and some are… both. Like this X-Ray of Pamela Anderson. You know, I long suspected she had a couple of basketballs underneath her shirt, and now it’s finally been confirmed. Thanks Worth1000!


Gearing Up For The Olympics

Now, maybe if this was an actual event I’d tune in tonight. Instead, I’ll be watching the 2 hour Arrested Development finale. You should too.


Busted Tee

Mohammed_t_shirt_1Some might say it’s the worst idea for a cartoon T-shirt since those ridiculous ghetto Bugs Bunny & Taz shirts from the early 1990’s. Others might say it’s downright criminal. I say, do they have any mediums left?

Shopmetrospy thinks that if you don’t buy this T-shirt of the prophet Mohammed with bomb on his head, the terrorists have won… and we’re not JUST talking about the war on fashion here.

You could read all about the controversy by clicking here. My favorite line is "Critics of the Mohammed T-shirt say this is a perfect example of why Americans are hated around the world." See, and the whole time I thought it was because of Fred Durst. I was way off.


Fair & (Un)Balanced

Unless you slept through the day yesterday, you’d know that the big news (that wasn’t Britney-related) was that our government thwarted a potential terrorist attack on Los Angeles’ US Bank Tower in 2002. Go team!

Now, we didn’t cover it here– because like I said, it wasn’t Britney-related– but naturally all the real, credible news services did. And so did Fox News.

To illustrate how devastating this attack would have been, Fox did the only thing they could: they showed clips from the Will Smith/ Jeff Goldblum action flick Independence Day. Really. Seriously. They did. Honestly, I couldn’t make that up if I tried.

I know what you’re thinking: "Wow! That’s exploitative!" Or "They really crossed the line this time." Or "Hey! I haven’t seen that movie in a while, maybe I should Netflix it." Whatever. Well, guess what: you’re way off base. This is something that should be taken seriously. Because I trust Fox News, and if Fox News is insinuating that somehow the terrorists have enlisted the help of alien space ships to attack the United States of America, I believe them.

Fair and Balanced. And movie buffs. Fox News.



Okay, I’ll admit it: I was one of the millions of guys out there who insisted that the TV got turned off after the Superbowl on Sunday instead of watching the "very special" episode of Grey’s Anatomy. It’s true.

Then I found this clip: The girls of Grey’s Anatomy showering together during some sort of fantasy sequence. I’ve been kicking myself ever since.

I had no idea this show was so… awesome! I mean, I always thought it was a chick show about chick doctors dealing with chick problems. I never would have imagined it involved girl-on-girl showering. So my question to you, Grey’s fans out there: does this happen all the time? Do I have to start watching? Be honest, because if I tune in next week and whole thing is, "Wahhh, I don’t know if the guy from Can’t Buy Me Love likes me or not, wahhh," and there’s no soap-scrubbing action, I’m going to be very angry that you lied to me.


Get ready for VD-Day!

I mean Valentines Day.

Thanks to the Gallery of the Absurd for this amazing card. Be sure to send it to somebody you love… namely, yourself.

And hey, if you don’t love yourself, they also have Tara Reid and Tom Cruise cards for you. It’s going to be the best Valentine’s Day ever.
