Will Ferrell’s Commencement Speech at… Harvard?

24 08 2008

This one might appeal to the kids of the graduating audience, but something tell me the parents that forked ou\ver the $100K+ in tuitions wanted someone a little more… serious?  Don’t get me wrong, I love Will Ferrell but I’d still prefer the dry Surgeon General speech I got if only to make the parents happy.  Man I’m starting to sound old…

I Was Robbed By Two Men – Viral Workout Vid

12 06 2008

Ha, here’s a fairly amusing viral vid straight from Japan (gasp!) of a workout video featuring three girls repeatedly saying English phrases apparently with the intention of teaching English while working out.  The funny thing is they’re learning to say such bizarre phrases like “I was robbed by two men” since most of the simulated situations appear to involve being mugged on the streets of New York.

Anyways, this looks like this is moving around the web quite a bit virally, so I thought I’d post for your entertainment.

Italian Lego Repairs

Lego repairs

Caught this interesting post from our friends at Gizmodo of an Italian artist (Jan Vormann) who went around his quiet town of Bocchignano, Italy and provided repairs to various walls. Here’s the trick, instead of using your standard brick & mortar fare to do the job, he used a combination of Lego bricks to complete the repairs.  Now I just have to figure out how to use Lego’s to fix that leaky faucet…

Jane’s Interesting Brand Timeline

Jane\'s Brand Post

Just caught this interesting blog post from DearJaneSample.com, and thought it was an experiment worth sharing. It’s simply a 24 hour timeline of all the brands that the blog’s moderator interacts with, which gives an eerily telling story of the days events.

I thought of putting together my own timeline, but fear that most of it would involve an embarrassingly “healthy” dose of everything between 5:48pm and 2:18am (unfortunately much more of the former as of late).

American Idol’s Renaldo Lapuz – I Am Your Brother

22 05 2008

Alright ladies, you might want to sit down for this memorable American Idol tryout from the sweet (yet misguided) intentions of one Renaldo Lapuz.  Words can’t quite express this little skit from the wannabe idol, but it certainly shouldn’t be missed.

Stephen Colbert vs Rain: The Dance Off

Colbert vs Rain

As a follow-up to a report last week regarding the hilarious “feud” between Stephen Colbert and Korean pop star Rain, I’ve managed to track down video of the actual dance off. Following the closing segment from an episode of the Colbert Report last week, Colbert does his best to show off his moves but ultimately runs out of gas. Enjoy… Rain!!!
