Steve Jobs (Apple) and Bill Gates (Microsoft) highlight reel at D5. Many of you may not think this is worth watching but this is the first time in 20 years that these two giants have sat down together for what was a historic discussion. It is very cool to watch these videos to see how much respect they have for each other. I learned a lot about their relationship and their past. From the way the media and fanboys portray the companies, they seem like hated enemies (they are somewhat rivals), but they have helped each other in the past and talk about how they need each other in current times. The whole set can be found here

For all you Quentin Tarantino fans that want to play with rubber duckies in the tub but are too manly to do so...I present Reservoir Ducks! Now you can play with Mr. Pink in the bath anytime you want (no pun intended)! When placed in water, the LED’s are activated to light up and change colors. There is a total battery life of about 45 hours and the batteries are not replaceable, so plan wisely.

Aurora Borealis on Broadway?

I was messing around with Google Maps new "Street View" feature and found a strange occurrence of the Northern Lights on South Broadway in Colorado. I personally did not know that the phenomenon, known as Aurora Borealis, could happen in Colorado but I guess I was wrong! I guess the camera had some weird negative effects going on, eh? Check out some shots

Dog Butt Towel Holder



Dog-End will bring a smile to your face every time you go to dry your hands. Once you get over the awkwardness of what you have just seen... you'll begin to see a fun, kitschy, innocent 1950's-ness towel holder you've just got to get! Kinda gross, but kinda cute and definitely kinda cool. And, because this is the Perpetual Kid, kinda functional and very well executed too.

Includes a strong sticky pad or a screw for your choice of mounting.

Shaun of the Dead Action Figure



Shaun of the Dead is one of my favorite movies and by far one of the best comedy horror movies that I know of. So when I heard that Entertainment Earth had released an action figure for this movie I was very excited. Shaun above is armed with his Cricket Bat (or whatever they call it), Flowers for his Mum, and a case of vinyl records to throw at any zombie who comes his way. Not only does this action figure look sweet but it also talks, saying such movie lines as -

"If you get cornered, bash them in the head. That seems to work."

"I don’t think I’ve got it in me to shoot my flat-mate, my mum, and my girlfriend all in the same evening."

"How's that for a slice of fried gold?"

Chocolate Lab for Me!

I have been wanting to get a dog for a few years now and I think I am finally going to do it. I found a guy that is selling Chocolate Labs and I believe he has the perfect dog for me. The parents are both field Chocolate Labs, AKC certified, DNA tested and scored great on OFA Hip tests...so I feel that I will be getting a great dog. I decided on a female but have not chosen a final name. Here are some pics of all the little pups and pretty soon one of them bitches (I can say that) will be mine!

Beer Battered Deep Fried Bacon Double Quarter Pounder


Just in time for lunch!
Could I get a McDeep-Fried Bacon Double Quarter Pounder....and a side salad with fat free dressing?




Yes, it's pretty gross. This started out as a dare from a friend on IRC, one I immediately said "OK!" to. It took a few weeks to work up the courage to try. First off, it was surprisingly tasty - everything was kind of nicely nutty, and if I'd had to eat 1/5th of one, that'd be just nice. Something like chocolate mud cake, a little goes a long way. I did eat the whole thing in the end though - it was the heaviest thing I'd ever munched on, and left me unable to eat for a good 24 hours afterwards. It was thursday's lunch, and I didn't feel hungry until friday afternoon

Mr. T Facts:



  • Mr. T has beat the shit out of so many people over his brilliant life that most medical journals now classify him as a laxative
  • Scientists theorize that Mr. T cannot catch AIDS because his T-cells pity the virus into submission. The study of this phenomenon would lead to an AIDS vaccine; however doctors cannot obtain a blood sample because medical science has been unable to invent a hypodermic needle capable of piercing Mr. T’s skin.
  • While filming Rocky III, Mr. T punched Sylvester Stallone so hard Sly spoke clearly for a week.
  • The United States Federal Reserve Bank decided that Mr. T's neck was a much safer place for their gold than Fort Knox.
  • When Mr. T was circumsized his foreskin was not disposed of. Instead it was raised as a normal child, and it grew to love the game of basketball. Today we know Mr. T's foreskin as Shaquille O'Neal.
  • If Mr.T and The Fonz were ever to hi-five it would bring about another ice age
  • To make sure he was born tough, Mr. T's mother would punch her womb between shots of vodka.
  • In 1982 while working as a bouncer Mr. T invented a move so perilous that it is still spoken of with great admiration... that move is forever known as T Bagging.

Puffer Fish: Stronger than Cocaine

Did You Know: Puffer Fish is a fish that is a delicacy in places like Japan. However Puffer Fish contain a deadly toxin, known as tetrodotoxin, in their internal organs, mainly the ovaries, liver and eye's, that can cause paralysis and eventual death even in very small quantities. Tetrodotoxin is very similar to cocaine and lidocaine except it is said to be 160,000 times stronger than Blow and can rapidly cause paralysis of the diaphragm and suffocation.

Quick administration of Anticholinergic drugs can sometimes spare the life of the consumer. It's illegal to prepare Puffer Fish in most areas of the world, but you can still find it in certain restaurants. However, if it's prepared incorrectly than death can ensue.

Justin TV


Just like Ed TV, but for real

24/7 reality online TV show Justin.tv has has turned into a bit of a mini-phenomenon since launching just two months ago. Their apartment was raided by the police, and they were later evicted by their landlord. They were on the Today Show. Justin has hung out with famous rappers. They’ve taken extravagant dares from their audience, and a crowd always surrounds Justin and his ubiquitous camera. Hundreds of adolescent viewers watched (sort of) as Justin had sex on the show, although users were left with a black screen and silence until the Justin.tv team started playing porn music. The site has been far more successful so far than the founders anticipated.

The site is so successful, in fact, that many people have said they want to start their own real-life television shows. Startup Ustream launched just in time to take advantage of this - they give users the tools to easily duplicate the Justin.tv experience.

Today, Justin.tv is launching its own network to allow users to create and publish their own shows.

I stumbled across this skit called The Legend of Old Gregg a few months ago and for some odd reason I find myself watching it quite often. The skit is from "The Mighty Boosh" which is a British TV show....I think. If you want to find the whole episode, so things make a little more sense, search for "Old Gregg" on YouTube and go through the 5 segments that make up the whole episode.

Now, many of you might find this video weird, disturbing and disgusting while others may find themselves watching the video over and over again....and maybe even calling their friends "Fuzzy little man peaches" (I know I do). Enjoy!

Mr. T Quotes:


  • "I am the best bodyguard, because I'll take a bullet, I'll take a stab wound, I'll take a hit upside the head; I'm like a Kamikaze pilot; The President got shot because his men relaxed." - Mr. T, in Sept. 1983 issue of Playboy
  • "I believe in the Golden Rule - The Man with the Gold... Rules."
  • "I pity the fool..." [his trademark quote]
  • "When I was growing up, my family was so poor we couldn't afford to pay attention."
  • "As a kid, I got three meals a day. Oatmeal, miss-a-meal and no meal."
  • "I think about my father being called 'boy', my uncle being called 'boy', my brother, coming back from Vietnam and being called 'boy'. So I questioned myself: 'What does a black man have to do before he's given the respect as a man?' So when I was 18 years old, when I was old enough to fight and die for my country, old enough to drink, old enough to vote, I said I was old enough to be called a man. I self-ordained myself Mr. T so the first word out of everybody's mouth is 'Mr.' That's a sign of respect that my father didn't get, that my brother didn't get, that my mother didn't get."
