The Washlet

The Washlethttp://cleanishappy.com/

Although I have no intention of ever purchasing a Washlet, I have made more than one visit to this website over the past few days.  A friend of mine pointed me to it.  If you view the site, be sure to view with sound.

The Washlet website is beautifully designed.  In going to the site you will find that there are six artificially intelligent personalities to supply informational testimonials on the merits this new toilet technology.  The characters are contstantly in motion as if they are living on your computer screen in an anxiously happy state…Their one purpose in life?… to give you the good news about the Washlet.  I have developed a crush on the gal second from the left.

The guy third from left takes me laugh, and laugh…and laugh.  Oh lordy… starving actors.

The Washlet is a toilet straight out of the 23rd century, and apparently they are already very common in Japan…go figure. 

My brother Luke made a funny comment: “i know they’ve tested this on a the affluent and well groomed japenese.  have they tested it on lazy, chilli eating, 300 pound americans?” Perhaps Luke’s Washlet will need a trip to the Monster Garage.

Documentaries that you’re sure to love

Can Mr. Smith Get to Washington Anymore? – one of the best documentary features at the Milwaukee International Film Festival!  Following the 2004 Missouri Democratic primary to replace  retiring 28-year veteran and former House Majority Leader Dick Gephardt.  The documentary shadows little known Jeff Smith, a 29 year old part-time political science instructor at Wash U.  Travel along this grass roots campaign as they face their biggest opponent Russ Carnahan to see if the little guy stands a chance. 

 Even if you’re not a fan of the policital process this movie is a must see!   A true underdog story.

Maxed Out – a look at the American credit industry and how it affects us.  It’s really disturbing to see how the credit industry solicits their “biggest money makers” as well as looking at the national debt.  A must see for anyone who has ever taken out a loan or has gotten a credit card.

Junior Senior

Junior Senior

So I have never pretended to be “up” on music. Usually a band gets played on the radio, gets their song on a commercial, or they are written about in 50 other blogs before I decide to listen to a song. Junior Senior released their current cd August 14, but I am riding the wave now. Anywho, check out their song “Can I get, get, get” on their myspace. The video ain’t that bad either; they did the “send us you dancing to our song and YOU might be in the next Junior Senior video”. Its ok to like them, so many others do. The video after the jump.

Science Fact October 9, 2007

Head on a beer commonly thought to be a sign of one’s pouring prowess is actually an indication of how dirty the glass is.  A glass with more bacteria on it will produce more head (carbon dioxide) as the bacteria react with the beer and produce little bubbles of carbon dioxide.
