This made me laugh for many of the same reasons that the Honey Badger made me laugh. Something about the voice over paired with the sassy gay attitude makes it magical. Fair warning: very few people I have shown this to so far actually found it funny so it's possible I just have a weird sense of humor. However, I don't know how anyone can avoid laughing at the library scene.

This is probably the least enthusiastic I have ever been for the Academy Awards. I mean, just watch the ad! Robin Williams was the only reason it was fun. Although, things are already starting to look up. Once I saw Sacha Baron Cohen arrive in his Dictator costume I knew the night was going to get better. Fingers crossed that my intuition doesn't fail me!

Ahaha I couldn't resist posting this after seeing it. Mainstay Productions does a bunch of cool short videos and I actually came across them for their series of Hunger Games related movies. They made a series of short videos for the Finnick/Annie storyline and one short film about the second quarter quell. Pretty impressive stuff.

I absolutely loved the effort that went into The Dark Knight when it was first being promoted and it looks like Marvel is attempting the same creativity. Not only was there a campaign on markofthespider-man.com that allowed people to graffiti Spiderman's symbol across several cities, there was also a search to 'find' Peter Parker's backpack all over the country. The comingsoon.net article has more pictures and information about what happened but I cannot wait for the next installment.

Alright, the article is super vague and obviously this book is quite a ways from being published but it is happening! She has a new publisher and is aiming for the adult crowd so I'm guessing this will be a shift in gears from Harry Potter. Follow the link for the full article! Huffington Post

Crappy video but nothing tops a good beat; unless it's a good beat mixed with some Disney! If you love this kind of stuff make sure to check out djDOYOU and the other songs on his "Stuntin Like Mufasa" mixtape. Or just search him on youtube like I did and listen to the whole album. Either way, most of the songs are surprisingly good mixes. Make a Man Touch the Sky was one of my favorites:

In the spirit of promoting original artwork and artists I've decided to highlight Nimra from deviantart. This guy is probably from another planet, because his drawings are so detailed and perfect that I'm going to refuse to accept that he's human.

I'm not a V-day hater. I've never referred to it as 'single-awareness day' and this is the first year that I have actually not been single. I'm also not a hater on sending a nice card to a family member to remind them that you love them. However, this ad is a mistake.
Hallmark seriously needs to work on its advertising. Honestly, aren't most of these comments things that you should already be saying? And even if you don't say them, is a card really the way to tell someone 'how you feel'? Plus, all these people sound pretty insecure and needy. "Tell me that I'm still the one." If you need to hear that, perhaps there are some other things you should worry about instead of your husband's reassurance that you're his favorite. The "tell me you'll never let me go" lady seems completely off the rails. Pretty sure that person in the taxi is NEVER coming back to that town again.

This is the time of year where I begin to frantically search every grocery store and gas station around to find my precious girl scout cookies. The greatest of all these cookies? Samoas (s'moas?). Eh, I'm too tired to google the spelling but you guys know what I'm talking about, right? Delectable caramel, chocolate and coconut circles that can never be cloned outside of the Girl Scouts of America. That is, I thought they were one-of-a-kind until the evil Keebler Elf decided to put those poor adorable scouts out of business! This picture is evidence of my discovery and it's amazing I was able to snag such an image as they were completely devoured shortly after the photo was taken. I am here to say before the whole internet that Keebler has created a monster and we can now enjoy these cookies all year round. No, I'm not getting any sort of sponsor money for featuring this, I just wanted you to know what a gift and a curse these cookies are for anyone who is a fan.
This made me chuckle. Today is the last day of Female Artist Week on Teefury and for the next 10 hours you can buy THIS awesome skyrim/transformers shirt! However, if you don't buy it in the next 10 hours than the picture link will send you to the shirt for the new day. Grab it before it's gone!

I wasn't very enthused for the Super Bowl this year. I wanted the 49ers to make it all the way and once they lost the leftover teams seemed just plain boring. Even so, I still watched the game and found it to be at least mildly amusing. The commercials are always a factor to look forward to as well. Our house missed most of them due to the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet (just TRY not to watch it next year) but we caught a lot of the good ones. This is one I didn't see until this morning but it has certainly become my favorite. It's nice to see NBC laugh at themselves and have a bit of fun.

This is a view from somewhere around the Olympic Peninsula. My friend Eric took it and I'm still amazed with how stunning it is. Hop over to his flickr page to show some love or simply be blown away by his awesome portfolio. If nothing else, the link in the picture leads to a larger image on flickr. Eric Schofhauser

|Clearly, they don't care.|
My question has to do with why Netflix didn't back up Redbox's choice. It's clear that Netflix has the upper hand, what with subscribers paying monthly fees to have access to a much broader range of films. Redbox relies almost entirely on new releases and rarely carries the same films more than a couple of months. Also, if Redbox has to start raising prices it is more than likely that people will turn to Netflix as the smarter way to get 'more bang for your buck.' So what do we do? If people continue to turn to Netflix for movie rentals there will be nothing to stop the company from consistently raising prices. I don't see them going anywhere in the future but up and there really isn't any true competition to stand in their way. Any thoughts on this? Am I crazy for even caring?

All I can say is lololololololol to this picture. Having played all of these games, I have certainly felt this. Resident Evil is my favorite series of games but I can honestly say I would never want to face off against a giant claw-spider-zombie-monster. Thanks for the nightmares, Capcom.
