Unintentionally Funny Video of the Day: Underwater Nightclub NYC

For some reason when I watched the following video I started uncontrollably laughing (the muahaha kind).  I was just imagining the ways in which this is terrible idea.

First off, WHO brings their freakin’ iPhone to an underwater club? Second, the Dart Gun (that really seems like a spear fishing gun) seems a tad dangerous to give to drunk people in futuristic scuba suits.  THIRD, there’s a button just to release bubbles.

FOURTH, FIFTH AND SIXTH:  Vomit, Urine and Farts (oooooh maybe that’s what the bubble button is for – hiding flatulence).

Seventh – it just seems altogether awkward…

ANYWAY, I clap my hands to you TechnoMarine (a watch company) – genius advertisement.  Even though my brain automatically thought about all the ways in which an underwater nightclub would be terrible, I still want to go there…

From MP3 Grillz to Michael Jackson’s Pet name: Daily Mail Links

I LOVE the Daily Mail.  I seriously start my day by getting my fix of British tabloids.   So here are my favorite links of the day:

1. Michael Jackson’s pet name for himself was “turd.”

2.   Honey Honey Boo Boo Child (aka Alana from Toddler’s and Tiaras) is getting her own TLC Reality Television show!!!!  If you are out of the child pageant circuit, this video will catch you up (it’s worth it):

3.  The family of a man who died in a threesome was awarded $3 million because his doctor did not warn him against extreme physical activity.  Because a doctor’s warning was totally gonna stop him…

4.  Grillz 3.0 – you can now play MP3’s through your teeth and this is somehow a growing trend.  The control panel is on the roof of your mouth, so you can change the music with your tongue…  U.S.A! U.S.A.!

Daily Mail, you are the best!

Don’t Fix what Ain’t Broke: the Scrabble Application on Facebook

I’ve discussed my Scrabble addiction before, but I’ll say it again… I believe that scrabble is the most perfect game ever created.  In fact, the creator of Scrabble, Alfred Mosher Butts,  studied the front page of The New York Times for an entire year to calculate how frequently each letter of the alphabet was used.  Words with Friends cannot even compare…

So, today when I went to play my daily game of Scrabble through the facebook application, I was surprised to find this:

What is that madness?  It looks like they hired the web designers of Myspace circa 2003 and Zynga’s Farmville to make this terrible eyesore. Continue reading

Man Arrested for Drunk Driving with ZEBRA and MACAW in his car

I’m just gonna let this story speak for itself… -HAHA

Police in  Ankeny, just outside Des Moines, received a call from a confused and concerned citizen that they had spotted a zebra and a macaw in a parked car outside of a bar.  When the officers arrived on the scene, the car was being driven away by its owner,  55-year-old Jerald Reiter.

A Zebra and Macaw walk into a bar

When pulled over, Reiter described that the zebra and macaw were his pets, and that they frequently enjoyed outings.  Reiter didn’t plan on leaving his pets inside the truck, but that previously, the owners allowed him to bring the zebra and the bird into the bar.  Plans changed, however when the owner would not let the animals in because they were serving food that evening.

He was arrested for drunk driving with a blood alcohol level of 0.148, almost twice the legal limit.

Jerald Reiter – owner of zebra and macaw….

And to think, I can’t even get a pet monkey…

Slingr – Now the internet can buy you drinks….

Ever been to a bar and you’re pretty sure that your only chance at a free drink is that overweight guy with the cold sore and that weird hairy mole, and you realize that you’d rather shell out the cash for a peaceful night than risk him tell that story bout his hernias four times in a row as he spits  cold sore drool on your face?

Sorry… got carried away.  ANYWAY.. If you’ve ever wished for your friends to be able to share an experience of food and drinks with you even when they are halfway across the world, if you’ve ever wanted to send a special shot to a friend celebrating a birthday while you are stuck inside with the flu, if you’ve ever wanted to cash in all those internet stalkers you’ve been hoarding, well then… I’ve got an app for you… SLINGR.

Slingr – The self proclaimed social networking tool for drinkers, allows your facebook and twitter friends to remotely send you drinks when you are at bars and clubs hooked up with the service.

According to the service:

When you check in to a Slingr spot, a link is shared to your social feed (e.g. Facebook wall) which takes your friends to a menu system tied directly to your table. From there they can send you drinks, food, and other stuff which is delivered to you by the serving staff.

Currently three bars in the Los Angeles Area have it: Michael’s Bar and Grill in Burbank, the Hollywood Way and The Red Lion in Silver Lake.

Would you guys buy me drinks???   I need to have this blog profit me in some way…. JUST KIDDING. I love you all, even if you don’t buy me drinks.  But, I’ll try it out, see if actually works and report back soon.

Here’s the Facebook page and Website for those of you who would like to look into it more as it grows in popularity.

Carmageddon causes traffic nightmare and … more babies ?!?!

Predicted as one of the biggest traffic nightmares that Americans ever had to face, Carmageddon was the shutting down of the 405 freeway in a key area of Los Angeles, between the Valley and the West Side.  It was suppose to cause ten hour commutes, insane amounts of road rage and, of course, anarchy.

WELL, I SURVIVED IT… and to be honest it was a little bit anti-climatic.  Most people chose not to travel that day and to instead just stay home.  I used my “off-time” to watch an entire season of Breaking Bad. It was glorious.

Well, two of my favorite news sources, the local news and The Daily Mail, are now reporting that Carmageddon had some unintended consequences… More Babies!  9 months later there has been a mini-baby boom in Los Angeles. This has been reported solely through anecdotal evidence.

A couple, Natasha and Brian Mills have even come forward saying that there baby was conceived during this time.  Brian Mills said: ‘We just holed up in the house, kind of sat by the fire and hung out with each other. ‘Natasha Mills added: ‘And the rest, I don’t have to say.’

Whether true or not, there’s nothing more romantic than conceiving your baby during a state of extreme traffic backup where one becomes so frustrated they feel the world is collapsing around them.

I won the $5,000 – THANK YOU AMERICA!

Hey Everyone!

Last week I posted about my entry in the Don’t Trust the B Funniest Roommates Contest. AKA THIS VIDEO:

Well I WON the 5 Grand!  Thank you for all those who support me in this (especially my lovely crew)! I’ve decided that filmmaking is something I want to pursue more (especially script writing).

I found out about a week and half ago about my win (sorry for the lag in sharing), well a week later, I found out something equally exciting.  My good friend won the $5,000 text contest with this lovely/smelly gem:

You know your living situation is a hot mess when your roommate leaves, but his B.O. lingers. For most people, I assume personal hygiene is a basic, day-to-day necessity. For my ex-roommate, it was a tedious chore that happened, at best, once a week. We developed a passive-aggressive relationship where I opened windows for freshness, and he closed windows, marinating the room in a stench that would make garbage men shudder. I’m almost positive the wallpaper started to peel away from the walls. We signed a one-year lease, but he bounced after 2 months when he found my friends Febrezing him in his sleep.

So we either are extremely lucky or we have a penchant for terrible roommates, either way… we’re ballers, we rock, we thank you, and we are applying for the Amazing Race… That is all

Texts from Hilary Clinton

Sometimes I don’t post things because I think EVERYONE knows about it, so I share my links with a select few who I know haven’t seen it.  WEEKS LATER, my mom/friend/grocery store clerk will come up to me and say… “I saw that video of that cat/drunk person/fat child you showed me, it was on the local news/huffington post/the internet.”  Then I realize I missed a cultural opportunity to share it with my readers who may have have been very well in the dark.

So today, I share something that was shared to me on facebook.  Texts from Hilary… Clinton that is.  It’s basically Mrs. Secretary of State being a pimp badass.  Can someone also make of meme of me being awesome?  Because that’s basically my life goal.

Rick Santorum song made me barf in my mouth

I live in California, and I seriously have not met one person who likes Santorum.  Even my conservative friends say they would never vote for him. I started to believe that the media invented the whole Santorum Surge (and perhaps even Santorum) to add some spice into this bland as dirt robot election.

It would be like Wag the Dog, but the racist, homophobic, sexist edition.

So, needless to say, I’m surprised that Santorum is a real, sweater vested, rape can make lemonade saying, Human being.  And there are actually people who like him?  Is this for real?

Nice job, parents.  Indoctrinate your kids.  U-S-A. U-S-A.  Can California just secede yet?

Some of the lyrics for those of you who are lazy:

We’ve got a Man who Understands that God Gave the Bill of Rights
Oh, there is Hope for our Nation again
Maybe the First time Since we Had Ronald Reagan
There will be Justice for the Unborn
Factories back on our Shores
Where the Constitution rules our land
Yes, I Believe… Rick Santorum is our Man!

Face Palm…
