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.
