Stylin’ — Amanda Blank

Check out this article from Venus Zine on the always entertaining Amanda Blank.

“Style Idol: Amanda Blank”

I already liked the girl, but this article gave me one more reason to like her— she’s a white girl who wraps her hair!!!  Haha.



Andy Samberg does it again!

7 12 2008

Jizz In My Pants…Yes, that’s correct.

Tonight on SNL (a show I haven’t really watched since high school), Andy Samberg’s newest “music video” aired. With each one he gets better and better.

This song “Jizz in My Pants” was all about…well, the title’s fairly transparent. It’s “Dick in a Box” but about two times better.

Hopefully a link and lyrics to come….haha.


UPDATE (12/15/2008): VIDEO!!

You know what’s even better than the fact that this song is just wrong (in all the right ways)?

Answer–The lasers, the DJ, the lame lyrics, the tight pants, the JLS cameo, the KUFIYA! It’s so fabulously hipster. And this is coming from the girl that hates that label…and has Santogold “Creator” as her ringtone.

The Blow + D4L

Just an observation….

One of my new musical obsessions is a group called The Blow. Have a listen to their song “True Affection.”

Now, listen to D4L “Laffy Taffy”

I think you get it. 🙂

This is one of the most ridiculous commercials I’ve seen in a LONG time.  I wonder which demographic this commercial’s supposed to grab….

And just because—one of my all-time favorite commercials.  Aired in 2006 during the Super Bowl.

DnB finds religion.

I really don’t want to preface this too much.  So let me just say that this is LOLs for days.  And days and days.

Thanks to a certain someone for the link.

Cats 101: An Engineer’s Guide to Cats

2 08 2008

A Butler associate of mine, Bess, posted this on her blog awhile back…

It has provided me with hours of entertainment, primarily because I love cats.

Take special note of the “Cat Yodeling” section.  And now, for your entertainment, “An Engineer’s Guide to Cats”

Word A Day – RAKE

13 06 2008

rake \reyk\


An agricultural implement with teeth or tines for gathering cut grass, hay, or the like or for smoothing the surface of the ground.
Any of various implements having a similar form, as a croupier’s implement for gathering in money on a gaming table.

To gather, draw, or remove with a rake
To clear, smooth, or prepare with a rake
To clear (a fire, embers, etc.) by stirring with a poker or the like.

Yeah, yeah, you know the word rake. It’s a thing; it’s an action. So by now, you’re trying to figure out why I chose this word as a Word A Day selection.

Well, here’s a meaning I don’t think you were too aware of.

rake \reyk\

A dissolute or profligate person, esp. a man who is licentious; roué.

Origin: rakehell
