Pretty sure George Lucas didn’t OK this one

As someone said, sometimes something is so bad, it’s good.  And if you want bad, brother we’ve got it.  May the force (or something) be with you.  I think this is for “sea chicken,” which is what most people call “tuna.” I’d love to visit Japan, but I’m afraid rather than seeing the sights, I’d wanna just hunker down in front of the TV to watch this madness.

Someone’s got way too much free time

Yes, that would be a portrait of deposed Tonight Show host Conan O’ Brien.  In Cheetos.

Death Star vs. Enterprise

Not even a fair fight, is it.

What happens when the Star Wars crawl reaches Earth?

You get James T. Kirk on the phone, of course.

Scariest commercial ever

Came across this totally by accident on YouTube.  I remember this one. I was very young at the time, and it absolutely scared the poop outta me. Still does. You might recognize that voice, too. You hear it at the top of the hour on CNN, and whenever Darth Vader speaks. If you’re thinking of taking up smoking, this one will change your mind, which was totally the point.

Move it, people!

Look at these cattle folks.  This is the Tokyo subway.  (This video is from mid-2008, but CNN’s Rick Sanchez just ran it, so whatever.) Those guys in blue are “Professional pushers.”  When 1000 people shove their way on, these guys push another couple dozen people on. Like this could happen on the NY subway, or BART. Just how does the poor person in the middle get out when it’s their turn? Moo.

The Muppets: Bohemian Rhapsody

One of the funniest videos I have ever seen. (Disclaimer: I have always hated this song, too.)

iPhone:infant easy

You know those Windows commercials showing the little squirt having no problem intuitively using Windows to edit and send photos and other stuff? Well one writer counters that with how easy the iPhone is that even an infant use it – but the writer also complains :

“I salute the Apple usability team for creating an interface that a toddler can intuit, but how about a “Kid Mode” in the next software update? It would disable e-mail, text messaging, the actual phone, and YouTube. And maybe the home button, when you’re using an app. (Yes, the iPhone parent will still need a way to quit apps. When in Kid Mode™, turning the ringer on or off shall act as the home button.) Isn’t it in your best interest to foster a new generation of iKids?”

Nice idea, there, Geronimo, how about buying the toddlers their own iTouch – as low as $199 right now at, you cheapskate?
