:::Sad Face:::

23 12 2008

Or maybe it’s this face that’s more like it:

MacBook Pro committed suicide. Being replaced under AppleCare (yay), Mac-less for 3-5 days (boo). Radio silence until then since the IBM DouchePad I’m using as a temporary machine blows donkey dick. Will have mini-updates via Twitterific until fully operational.

Back soon.


A Test of Endurance

Can you get to the end of the video without scoffing, stopping, or shomiting (shomiting is where you are simultaneously vomiting and shitting your pants)?

But in all seriousness, what inner city kid DOESN’T dream of finding an enchanted voodoo Viewmaster that will rapture them to Canadian Guido Paradise Island?

I kid you not, this band is Canadian, despite all signs pointing to a long Jersey Shore heritage.

I could really use some big ass storage around here in DC right about now.

For the Coolness Factor Alone

I Just Posted a Blog and I…

I think ‘Dick in a Box’ has just been ousted as best SNL Digital Short ever. Honestly, the production quality in this short is beyond. It’s beyond beyond. The boys did Kanye better than Kanye does Kanye.

Bonus points to Andy Samberg for bringing in his Lonely Island crew. Jorma’s the other singer and Akiva’s the DJ in the background.

And yes, JT was the pervy janitor.
