Bizarro world

Posted by Michael on January 15th, 2009 — 11:37pm

On any given blog I have to suppress every urge to give in to misanthropy. This becomes only too fucking hard when I see stuff like this. Seriously. Los Angeles?!

Can anyone tell me which people actively like Glasvegas?

300 Million Chewy Delicious Snacks

Posted by CDB on September 5th, 2008 — 2:37pm

Let’s watch the monopoly try to pickup cool points:

This attempt is the first in Microsoft’s recent $300,000,000 ad campaign buy, add $10,000,000 for Seinfeld and I’m left wondering how tight John Hodgman’s (the ‘I’m a PC’ guy, John Hodgman!) contract is with Apple.

I just hope all those “Saturn ringed brains at Microsoft [] can come up with something” that does make our “computers chewy like cake”.

Small point, Jerry, who likes chewy cake?

Delicious.

I’m already watching it again. I defy you not to have the songs stuck in your head by the end of the too short 42 minutes.

Love you too.

The musical by Joss Whedon. Yep. Comedy, romance, superheroes and supervillains.

It’s a mini drama in three 15 minute acts. Catch it now before it gets taken down on Sunday.

It’s rather good.

Go now!

As summer blooms it’s damn sure time to tweet.

Posted by CDB on May 11th, 2008 — 4:00pm

So you’ve heard about bebo, facebook, perhaps even digg.com and last.fm (because you’re cool like that). Well there is one web 2.0 property that many of you are still missing out on.

MM readers, with intent I point your browsers to twitter.com (I’ll pass on the suggestion that I am trying to bump the Gaylord post – I am).

Perhaps there is a good reason you keen MM readers are passing on twitter – it’s a tough sell.

Loosely sold to The Real Chris Porter as Facebook status updates on steroids, twitter surpasses the relatively passive status update. What twitter is, is a hotdog sized bun filled with a facebook style deli sausage meat, flooded with an IM mustard sauce and dipped in a sweet chili side of awesome. (On a somewhat related note, watch out for summer updates from the USA!)

Beyond the very loose suggestion that Twitter is a weird adaptation of the North Carolina Hot Dog, I’d like you to begin to understand what Twitter proposes.

Currently advertisement free, immature and prone to down time, Twitter is trying to connect your once IM and Facebook groups to your pocket. The true sell of twitter, readers, is that your mobile phone (that you were once so addicted to) becomes the mobile platform.

Readers, I urge you to play with twitter. If you too become a twitter guy/gal you can stay up to date on all things ‘us’ (between blog posts, of course) by following Philip (@chanstheorem), The Real Chris Porter (@sirchristo) and I (@cdburrows) on twitter.com.
