What the F#%K people?

So I stumbled upon this brilliant idea yesterday, no doubt thought up by the rocket scientists over at K-Mart after they had huffed all of the spray-on snow from isle three.

I know what you're thinking cause I thought it too, but actually this is not a printing mess up or Photoshop magic. This is the link to the actual sale. I guess they are pushing the whole space saving thing. But lets be honest kiddies if your parents aren't smart enough to just buy a smaller tree then they probably aren't smart enough to make enough money to buy you a lot of presents. And parents if you are too poor to have enough space for a Christmas tree then you are probably too poor to buy a lot of presents. So why the hell do you want the room to look bigger? Maybe so you can have the Charlie Brown Christmas tree effect? Again just buy a smaller tree. Here is the thing that cracks me up the most. The upside down tree kind of struck me like an upside down cross would, basically as an anti religious gesture. I know that the Christmas tree and Santa Claus are not religious items per se. But I thought that somewhere they must have had their roots in religion. So I did a little research (very little, right to wikipedia) and it turns out I was right.

In the Old English poem the Dream of the Rood the coniferous tree is actually the cross on which Jesus was crucified. Some churches actually use the same tree that they used at Christmas time, stripped down and used as the cross at Easter. Wake up people! You are putting the symbol of Christ dying for your sins upside down in your living room so you can have more room presents. I guess thats what Jesus died for so that you can have more room for presents... Sinner. So basically if you have an upside down tree you are a poor, ignorant, Satan worshiping pagan, with children who hate you, and a neighbor who screws your wife.

All I Want for Christmas

The Cruzin' Cooler

Cruzin Cooler combines two basic necessities of life, the ability to have cold food or a beverage handy along with the means to get somewhere, without walking.

It seems like just yesterday that Thor and I were driving around the backyard and neighborhood in an unregistered, uninsured, topless, seatless, deathtrap of a Bronco. This seems like a much more eco-friendly form of the same idea. Since I'm such a tree hugger I know what I'll be asking for for Christmas. How great would a couple of these things be at a tailgate? Or at Bonarroo?

The Kramer Revealed


Fortunately for Mel Gibson there is always someone to play racist tag with in Hollywood. "Hey Kramer ...Tag You're it"

Here is a link to Michael Richards tirade at the Laugh House and here is his supposed apology

"UPDATE": Now for a turn of pure irony, Michael Richards plays an "Afro-American."

Demetri Martin

Demetri Martin is on tour again and I guess he is co-promoting Window's Vista along with the tour because they made him a website.
"Something happened to me back in High-School. I'm not really ready to talk about it. Lets just say that it involves Karate and crying."

God that makes me think of Sisto. I almost spit up my coffee when I heard that. This does too...

"Booth Face... DJ Face Booth. Thats a good DJ name. But it's mine. If anyone is here visiting the site. Keep your intellectual mitts of my intellectual property. Intellectual Mitts ...thats another good DJ name."

The Cheap Bastards Guide to the iPod

There are many useful items that when used properly can make your iPod shiny and new again.  First, for any digital audio player you need to have quality content.  My 2 favorite places to get cheap or free content are GoMusic.Ru and  GoMusic is a Russian site that charges between 10-15 cents a song and they give you a whole album discount.  So basically it is like $1.25 an album.  They do require you to charge your account before you buy and if you spend $30 up front they give you 30 free tracks.  Sound to good to be true?  Well this one is for real.  The first night I paid for this I kept expecting to either get ripped off or have someone try and steal my credit card #.  Well neither happened.  I kept a close watch on my credit card bills and nothing ever showed up suspicious.  This site is not to be confused with Allofmp3 which I will not even bother linking to, since they have tried to add false charges to credit cards (article via  The first night I got 19 albums just to make sure I got my moneys worth in case they tried to scam me but they never did.  I have been using it for about 9 months (still on my original $30+30 tracks) and it is still running.
        The other site I found is  This is a site that was made to very accurately aim Google's search capabilities to find MP3 indexes in any shared online servers.  Translation: lots of music from lots of people.   So it works like p2p networks except it searches anonymously and the peer you are linking to is Google.  That being said you do still have to be careful when downloading from these servers.  Since some people think they are clever they try to fake you out sometimes by naming the visible link something different than the actual link.  Just make sure you right click on the link and scroll down to properties and make sure than the link actually leads to a .mp3 and not a file that is titled mp3.exe (the fuckers got me once thankfully Norton caught it.)  This is a great way to find live non-copyrighted music. I can't say for sure how well it does for downloading copyrighted music because downloading this would be illegal and I cannot endorse it.  So I suggest you steer clear of the hundreds, and hundreds of copyrighted tracks that you WILL find. ;)

Second, the fun part, are the freeware iPod apps. 
1.  vPod This allows you to sync music to your ipod from any computer with or without iTunes and still be played by your iPod.

2.  Pod Player is a iTunes esc player that allows you to hook up your ipod to any computer and play your content regardless of whether or not that computer has iTunes.  The bonus and the best part is that it allows you to extract your music from your iPod to any specified folder. 

3.  Cdex allow you do compress and rip cd's directly to your ipod without having to first put them onto your computer. 

These 3 tools are essential for the cheap bastard in all of us.  A full tutorial is avalable from our friends at lifehacker.

"Thats a huge bitch!"

I saw this picture today (above) and it reminded me of the picture I saw a while back with Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes(below).


"Aw c'mon!" Now she's wearing 6 inch heels!?! Thats kinda like John Holmes wearing a cock extension. Its just not necessary.

Mug Shot Sketch Creator

full sizeThis is a cool online app that allows you to create virtually any type of face with just a few clicks and adjustments. Have a friend you need to get back at? Eviscerate them online. Make sure the world knows the things that they want the world to forget. For Example Tony.Magnoto.Com. Sorry Ballerina Boy you have yet to live this one down. Want to personalize the domain for free? Try Url Doctor. It will allow you to add a name and allows you to choose from about 2500 different activities. It will then forward traffic from that address to your web site. Even MySpace works. If you are looking to just post a couple of pics and a couple of comments but dont know, or dont want to spend the time making a web page, Magnoto may be the site for you. It is by far the easiest to set up and with the wiki like "drag and drop" placement of the pictures you'll be trashing your ex girlfriend in no time. I only hope Tony doesn't read this... Paybacks are a bitch.

40 reasons to get drunk tonight

1. If you don’t drink that booze, by God, someone else will.

2. The brewing industry alone employs 1.7 million people and that’s a lot of mouths to feed.

3. Bad ass nicknames like “Chuggybear,” “The Alabama Hamma,” “Pukey McPukerson”
are not awarded to people who stay home to do laundry.

4. Your favorite bar stool needs just one more sitting to break it in.

5. This is the one and only night your soul mate will wander into the bar. Seriously.

6. Word on the street is the booze has been trash talking you all day.

Google Maps is the Best! Double True for real!

Have you ever been using Google Maps and wanted something that defined the streets just a little bit better than the hybrid view, but also allowed you to see actual pictures of landmarks for frames of reference? Well if so, here is your solution... have both at the same time. Google Maps Transparencies is a beta app that allows you to view the satellite view of a selected area and then overlay a map view over that area. The best part is that the transparency is adjustable in real time so that you can fade the map in and out to get a better view without having to click and reload to change modes.

    So its been a while since I have posted and my only excuse is a big one... I finally bought a house.  I know, I know... everyone has bought a house, but until you do yourself, you have no idea how much of a huge pain in the balls it is.  So now that I finally have one and I no longer have to spend every waking moment looking for one, I thought I would share a couple of my tech findings.  The first one being EyeSpot.  This is a new "community" (and I use that term loosely)  that allows you to upload and share videos.  The reason I say "community" loosely is because they just call themselves a community because of the MySpace kick.  Basically they are a browsable video uploading service.  The thing that sets them apart from Putfile and YouTube and other video upload sites is that they have a feature that allows you to edit and mix clips and add audio all online without having to download any software and then they give you the code to embed your edited video on any site you wish.  This to me is a big step up.  Basically you can upload videos from your cell (which you can send directly as an MMS message) or your camera and clip them so they show only what you want to show and then add audio that you want to hear.  I have to say is pretty cool.  I mean I haven't messed with it enough to come up with anything cool yet but at least now I have no excuse.  This is definitely easy.  Check it out.

KeepVid beta 1.1

Ever see a streaming video that you wanted to capture? Now you can. All you have to do is copy the url of the video, paste it into the address bar, click the corresponding site, then download and you're done. If you don't have a flash payer you can get one for free here. This also works for Music Video's too. So, for those of you with limited funds but unlimited time, heres a way to fill that Video iPod thats just begging to be filled. First you have to Download the FLV encoder to change your FLV to an AVI file. Then if you don't already have it you can download Videora iPod Converter and then convert the AVI to the iPod compatible mp4 file.

So Wraithborn is a fairly new (6 month old) comic out of DC Wildstorm by Joe Benitez and Marcia Chen. It is about this little girl who kicks the shit out of these creatures that look like the aliens in the movie Alien. She is unwillingly set with the duty of keeping the monsters of Hell in Hell. So basically its like the plot to the movie Constantine but instead of Keanu you get a blade swingin' hot chick.
1. Hot?.........Yes
2. Badass?....Yes
3. Leather?...Yes

Verdict?... ding, ding, ding! We have a winner!

By now you've all seen him although you may not even know it. His name is David Bernal AKA "Elsewhere." He was the kid who swept the interenet a couple years back with that freaky break dance video that made you go huh? Well since then he's been busy with TV commercials, talk shows and a couple of interenet collaborations. All of which are sick and definitely worth seeing and some can be found here.

You can check out his personal profile at:
Here are a few videos at his YouTube site:

The Juicer

Well since it is the season of Lent and I will not be partaking in my vice of choice for 40 days and nights (with brief exceptions...sorry Jesus... \m/ ...) I thought it would be a good time to point at the sinners and gloat as they drink themselves to eternal damnation. Just kidding. See you guys in a month. But here is a link for when you really learn to party.
