It is an video that has been around for awhile for song that has been around for longer, but I like this fan video for Daft Punk’s Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger and think its worth posting. And, if you haven’t seen it before, its new to you. The other reason why I thought it was a good post was because Stereogum has a post about all the videos it inspired. The daft bodies is somewhat creative, but the other ones are kinda painful.
Just because you might think it was hilarious when Jennifer Garner did the “Thriller” dance in “13 Going on 30” does not mean that you should make a video of yourself doing it. We all know that its funnier when you bug the DJ to play it at the bar and then can only do the first ten seconds of the dance over and over again. But I digress.
It’s getting to be that time when people start compiling their “Best of 2007” lists. New York Magazine via Pop Candy came up with a list of the best internet videos of the year and this video is definitely a good candidate. It’s basically a prank that someone at CollegeHumor.com played on a coworker that escalated into this:
ok, so my work email gets at least 200 crap emails a day, 85% are about drugs and 90% of those drugs will enhance my penis size.Â since i use outlook, each email appears open on my computer while i delete them, so quite often there are giant veiny dicks or girls in thongs on my screen — which my office-mates love to mock me for.Â generally i just highlight them and delete in batches, and as i was doing so today, i met my match.
my eye was caught by a subject reading “beat her womb with your giant…”.Â one — can we appreciate how hilarious this is — does that seem safe?Â pleasureful?Â does that include an abortion with the casual sex?Â i don’t know, i’m not a doctor.Â what i do know is that the email contained this great poem:
Now that you’ve met a lass that’s hot
You wanna screw her juicy twat.
She’s so attractive, she’s so nice!
But would your penile size suffice?
Not sure she will long for more?
You need a dic’k she would adore!
But how to get it long and thick?
Your only chance is MegaDik!
You’ll get so wanted super-size
And see great pleasure in her eyes!
Your schlong will pound her poon so deep,
Tonight you’ll hardly fall asleep!
i’ve been so amused all morning.Â i really like the effort that went into this spam email, and as an expert, i must say that it is heads and shafts above the rest.Â there are a few things that i don’t understand (mostly why there are so many apostrophes in words that don’t require them), but even though this product doesn’t apply to my gender, i would like to encourage people to use it so that they can keep up the great marketing.
I suggest you sign up.Â Â Today’s word solves a little mystery behind a common symbol we lovingly refer to as the “Pound Sign”
octothorpe \AHK-tuh-thorp\ noun
Â Â Â Â : the symbol #
Â Â Â Â Barry noticed the pound sign on the telephone and remarked about how much the octothorpe resembled a tic-tac-toe grid.
Did you know?
Â Â Â Â Stories abound about who first called the # sign an “octothorpe” (which can also be spelled â€œoctothorpâ€). Most of those tales link the name to various telephone workers in the 1960s, and all claim the “octo-” part refers to the eight points on the symbol, but the “thorpe” remains a mystery. One story links it to a telephone company employee who happened to burp while talking about the symbol with co-workers. Another relates it to the athlete Jim Thorpe, and a third claims it derives from an Old English word for â€œvillage.â€ If the plethora of theories leaves your head spinning, you might want to take the advice of the wag who asked (poetically), “Can we simply just say, / Ere it spoils your day, / It’s the thorp between seven and nine?”

Not sure if anyone else will find this fun-fact-of-the-day as interesting/humorous as I do, but apparently Winona Ryder has dated a large number of fairly well known musicians. Go to thisAOL Spinner Blog to see a slideshow of the many beaux. In fact, in writing this, I found another website that aparently keeps track of all the celebrities she has dated. Dating a Monkee is pretty impressive. Dating Adam Duritz of the Counting Crows is not that impressive. He could have his own slideshow of all the celebrities that he has been “romantically linked to.”
Anyways, check out the site I found out about this, I AM FUEL, YOU ARE FRIENDS to hear a nice little mixtape dedicated to this.
