Badass Dog Takes On A Cop Car

So apparently I have had nothing better to do with my spare time today but surf the web for strange and amusing videos to watch. I must say that this one had me laughing out loud. I couldn’t even begin to imagine either one of my dogs attempting such a feat. Reminds me of Cujo!

Elementary Students Performing Scarface (Yes, that Scarface)

Don’t get me wrong, I love Scarface! Al Pacino is great in it - he just goes completely over the top! On the other hand, I do find it pretty disturbing and alarming (albeit humorous in an abnormal way too) that very young children would be performing Scarface at an elementary school.

Squirrel - Mission Impossible

This video is just too cute! I don't know who would go to all the trouble to make this obstacle court for a squirrel... nonetheless, I am entertained!

Hovercraft Plane Thingy... I Want!

WOW! This is absolutely incredible! If this only goes for $13,000, I'm gonna trade my car in for TWO of them! So, if anyone cares to know what I want for my birthday, Christmas, whatever - this is it!!!

Phantom Menace In Review

Near this end of this literally painful day (migraine, hospital, etc,) I came upon a Star Wars: Episode I review by Mr. Plinkett via Ain't It Cool News. While this guy has an unusual sense of humor (acting as a crazed psychopath,) his review is actually pretty entertaining. If you are a life-long Star Wars fan who was frustrated or disenchanted with the Star Wars prequels, you’ll definitely enjoy this review of the Phantom Menace.

X Marks The Spot

I discovered this YouTube video of another underwear commercial from suggested links that YouTube recommended from the Banana Underwear video. Ok, I guess I understand that underwear advertising is supposed to have some inherent sexual insinuations – I get that. But damn… this Calvin Klein underwear commercial is downright raunchy! I can’t believe that something like this can be advertised so openly. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s a great commercial – very enjoyable; I’m merely astounded at what advertisers can get away with in this day and age!

Banana Anyone?

This video caught my interest for a variety of reasons… anyway; the latest in men's underwear is coming out of Australia. AussieBum's new line of eco-friendly briefs and boxers is not only green, but is the world's first undies made from bananas. No kidding – this is true! How is this true? Well, the underwear is made from the weave of the bark from the banana tree, organic cotton, and lycra.

Is it just me, or does anyone else have an odd craving for a banana after enjoying that video?!

Handsome Men's Club

If you stuck around to watch Kimmel's post-Oscar special, you were in for a treat. If not, well, you're still in for a treat... Here's the silly clip of Jimmy Kimmel's Handsome Men's Club.

Defying Gravity

Don't be afraid.

I'm not...
It's the Wizard who should be afraid...
Of me!

Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I'm through with playing by the rules
Of someone else's game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes and leap

It's time to try
Defying gravity
I think I'll try
Defying gravity
And you can't pull me down...

Quick get on!


Come with me. Think of what we could do - together.

I'm Limited
Together we're unlimited
Together we'll be the greatest team
There's ever been, Glinda,
Dreams the way we planned 'em

If we work in tandem

There's no fight we cannot win
Just you and I
Defying gravity
With you and I
Defying gravity

They'll never bring us down...
Well? Are you coming?

Elfie, you're trembling!
I hope you're happy
Now that you're choosing this...

You too - I hope it brings you bliss

I really hope you get it
And you don't live to regret it
I hope you're happy in the end
I hope you're happy, my friend...

So if you care to find me
Look to the western sky
As someone told me lately -
Ev'ryone deserves the chance to fly
And if I'm flying solo
At least I'm flying free
To those who'd ground me
Take a message back from me -

Tell them how I
Am defying gravity!
I'm flying high
Defying gravity!
And soon I'll match them in renown
And nobody in all of Oz
No wizard that there is or was
Is ever gonna bring me down!

[Citizens of Oz:]
Look at her, shes wicked!
Get her!

...bring me down!
This is truly an exceptional show (for those who are not familiar with it!) Jimmy and I were lucky enough to have the opportunity to see this musical last year. It was amazing! The story is based on the Wizard of Oz from the perspective of the witches, Elphaba (better known to people who are familiar with the Wizard of Oz as the Wicked Witch of the West) and Glinda. Wicked is the back-story of the relationship between Elphaba and Glinda… their rough beginning and rivalry (especially around a common love-interest) that develops into a strong friendship. The story comes to a major climax near the end of the first act (during this song, "Defying Gravity") when Elphaba realizes that the Wizard of Oz and his government are corrupt and she will have nothing to do with it! (It is at this point that the Wizard tarnishes her publicly as “wicked” and an evil witch, even though it is really the other way around in this story.)

This song has been exceptionally encouraging for me lately with regards to work, or as I like to call it, hell. I try my best to focus having things perfect and right, and when others suffer from mediocrity (at best) or just unadorned apathy, it really brings me down! When things need to be addressed and corrected immediately, it seems that there is a remarkable lack of urgency and will from others to comply.

This song helps me recognize that I must to do my best, even though others may not follow suit. I need to stop playing by their rules. I need to trust myself and my instincts and do what I know is right despite the fact that others simply do not care. I need to stop allowing the indifference of others to influence my outlook, and I must only focus on me and what I can do. That is all I can ask of myself… that is all that I truly require. Perhaps there is hope that I will one day free myself from my shackles of anguish and the place I know as hell, my job.

It's Just Chick-Fil-A

I took this picture on the way home from work two days ago. A new Chick-Fil-A was about to grand open, and people were camping outside days before! Don't get me wrong - I enjoy some Chick-Fil-A from time to time (that is before I became a vegetarian few weeks ago) - but this is absolutely insane! This isn't the opening of a new Star Wars movie, it's just Chick-Fil-A!

Abraham Lincoln - Vampire Hunter

I don't even know how I came upon this ridiculous YouTube video, but after watching it, my interest was peaked. And sure enough, I found the book, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter online. Being a pervasive history buff and a huge vampire fan (for the exception of all of that Twilight crap), I am obligated to read this now! Thanks weird YouTube video for playing on my unusual fascination with the bizarre. I guess I need to make my way to Borders sometime today or tomorrow.

Weird Science News

I read some pretty crazy science related stuff today on my lunch break at work...

So apparently, one of the most common weed-killers in the world, atrazine, causes chemical castration in frogs and could be killing off amphibian populations worldwide. Even more so, 10 percent of adult, male, atrazine-exposed frogs developed into females that copulated with other males and produced eggs. WTF! How the hell is that even possible!?

Also, that huge earthquake that just recently hit Chile… well, it shortened days on Earth… by about 1.26 milliseconds! Perhaps even more impressive, it moved the Earth’s axis of rotation by about 3 inches too… one earthquake did this!

Bill Murray Talks "Ghostbusters III" With David Letterman

I've been hearing for years now that there is supposedly going to be a "Ghostbusters III" movie... for years now! Recently, as in this year, the chatter on the internet about this possible trilogy has been been getting much louder and appearing to be much more of a realistic. Hell, it's even already on the IMDB website for release in 2011. And then just last night on David Letterman, we hear from Bill Murray...
