britt britt sings!

up until this point, i have been pretty adamant about not posting britney updates because honestly, it's just damn impossible to keep up. and the "news" is mostly a bunch of he said, she said nonsense about court dates and money and custody and blah blah blah. BORING. zzzzzz.

until britney offs herself or one of her kids starts dating Zahara Jolie-Pitt, there's really not much to talk about. until now. something has piqued my interest enough for me to post on it. and that something is an audio recording of britney singing at a 2001 performance. it's the un-doctored version from a mic that must be live under all the voiceover effects.

it pretty much sounds exactly how i thought she would sound. like the starving cats i once found locked in a cage behind a chinese restaurant. not pretty.


shady decorating

christmas and hanukkah are once again creeping up out of nowhere and if you're anything like the next guy, you probably have a handful of people that are impossible to buy gifts for.

luckily there's a solution for that hard to buy for city dweller otherwise known as a hipster. rock-inspired window shades!

each shade can be made to order according to your musical tastes and light filtering preferences. think of all the possibilities. The Beatles on opaque olive green or Justin and Britney on transparent shades the exact color of Justin's frosted curls circa 1998. no seriously though, channel your inner hipster to impress your friend and come up with the most ironically cool shades. all orders can be placed here. and if you're big on internet shopping in general, definitely peruse for other cool holiday gifts.

happy shopping!

kudos vaseline!

i like this ad. it's captivating, it's risque, it's beautifully shot, and it makes sense. most importantly (from a client's perspective), i remembered the product after the first time i saw it.

well done!

now who can come up with a naked commercial about the uses of Vaseline? oh the endless possibilities...

WGA strike!

Damn you Writers Guild of America! you have a totally legitimate reason to be on strike and i'm angry that i can't be angry that you're on strike. yeah so, i have been forced to come up with some television alternatives for all you daily couch potatoes.

1. Do a puzzle

i'm not talking about a crossword or a sudoku. i mean a good old fashioned jigsaw puzzle. but not those 3D tower things because they don't count. and by that i mean they're too complicated for my small brain.

2. Exercise

this strike is such a good excuse to start a new routine. and there's no need to dive into anything dramatic. start slow. instead of winding down your day to Conan re-runs, turn the lights down low and try some yoga. you can even buy a cheap pilates work out vid (or i can burn you a copy of mine on my fabulous new Mac) and tone your muscles to the sweet sounds of Enya. then, a couple months down the road when the sitcoms start running out of new material, get yourself in a jogging routine. your new pilates bod should be up for the challenge.

3. Start a blog

need a place to bitch and complain about your Heroes deprivation? blogging is perfect! you can release all your frustrations right through your fingertips (literally). you'll feel better once you vent and your friends don't actually have to listen to you complain. only lie to your face when you ask if they've been keeping up with your blog. everybody wins!

4. Organize your closet

honestly, this global warming shit is annoying. gone are the days when season changes meant you simply swap the tees for the sweaters and vice-versa. now we need long-sleeved tees, camisoles, pretty much anything you can layer, rain boots and scarves with varying degrees of warmth. i'm sick of clothes flying everywhere in the morning just so i can find a not-too-hot-not-too-cold something to wear. it's complete nonsense! somebody please figure out a way to situate your closets and let me know what works best. k? thanks

5. Watch all your favorite ABC shows on

since getting my new computer, i've been totally obsessed with catching up on Grey's Anatomy and Ugly Betty by watching limited commercial, zero skippage, hassle free episodes online. i also got a chance to check out the pilots for Pushing Daisies and Samantha Who and ya know what? i like them! turns out, this is the exact reason for the strike! curses!! i suggest you catch up on all your old episodes (and new shows too) before they are savagely taken away from us and the WGA members stop bitching.

Hindu Goddess?

meet Lakshmi Tatma. just your every day Hindu toddler. but not...

this is actually a really cool story and i recommend you read the full article which explains how this kid was born on the day that celebrates some Hindu god who also has a bunch of limbs. i mean yeah like, all of the Hindu gods have tons of limbs but that's not the point. this kid is a "miracle" or whatever.

Anyway, she's totally adorable - creepy body aside - but honestly all i can think about when i look at her is that episode of Family Guy called "The End of the World". you know, it's that one where there's some nuclear meltdown and the Griffins have to move to some Twinkie factory and somewhere along the way Stewie gets himself into something and turns into a mutant baby-octopus. i'd kill for a screen shot of that right now but Google is not being cooperative.

all hail Vishnu: the preserver and protector of creation!!

jack black, blonde!

i'm weirded out by this for two reasons. the first one being that i find it hard to imagine jack black would even want to bleach his hair. the second reason this geeks me out is because he looks hot! ew i feel gross saying that.

here's Jack Black - the way we like him; black - and Kyle Gass doing what they do best.

Flight of the Conchords is good but i'll always be a Tenacious D girl.



this is a funny little ad that i always loved. i'm not sure of its origin or if it is actually a legit ad used by the Firefox people...but that's neither here nor there. it's fucking clever and it makes me laugh.

ben, this one's for you.
