Kids say the darndest things...

Check out this commercial spoof of the Bud Light “whazz-up” commercial- with a 'lil twist. It’s children drinking milk, saying “whazz up!” It seems corny at first- but trust me this is quality stuff. Kids rock at life.


Why We Love Live Television…

So this past Friday, Kanye West (rapper) flooded through with a tear about the federal response in New Orleans during the network's live concert fundraiser for victims of Hurricane Katrina. Him and Mike Myers (Austin Powers, Wayne’s World) where just supposed to read from scripts prepared by the network about the impact of Katrina on southern Louisiana and Mississippi. However, things didn’t go quite as planned. Kanye voiced his personal opinion:

Kanye West: I hate the way they portray us in the media. You see a black family, it says, "They're looting." You see a white family, it says, "They're looking for food." And, you know, it's been five days [waiting for federal help] because most of the people are black.

Kanye West: George Bush doesn't care about black people!

The funny and notable detail about this situation, is Mike Myers has no idea how to react during this whole broadcast. If you watch him closely- his face looks like a bus is about to hit him square between the eyes. Live TV rocks. The good thing about this situation is a celebrity (Kanye) might actually do good here and actually donate some of their millions- even if it is for a publicity stunt. Check out the video below- or read the comment section for a transcript of the entire dialogue.

Longest eyebrow hair in the world...

I know there is a lot of weird categories in the Guinness Book of World Records, but this is a strange one. Frank Ames holds the world record for having the longest eyebrow hair, measuring just over 3 inches.

"I don’t know why it grows like that; it just always has"

My opinion, this is freakishly weird. I hope he’s married- and if he is…what does his wife think of this? I’d think it would be tough for anyone to get over the fact he has a long piece of hair coming out of his face. I’d cut it off in his sleep. Ha-ha!

Unbelievable 360 degree pictures…

I love photography (if you can’t tell), and this photographer has designed an awesome way to capture photos. He fly’s a kite that is “strapped” with a circular fisheye lens that has a 180 degree view to capture these 360 degree photos. It resembles Quicktime VR (popular for real estate websites)- but takes it a step further. You almost get a sense that you are “floating in the air” looking down on these pictures. This is cool stuff. Check out his website for more pictures.

Photo-worthy...


The most real-to-life video game ever...

Watch this video. It’s about a really intense video arcade game. I can't tell if this is real. It also kind of crosses the line between cool- and just plain cruel.

Check out this great time-killing game...

Check out this Muppets game where you launch Gonzo from a cannon into a water bucket.
