Arrested Development

Awesome news from Jason: You can now watch every episode of Arrested Development online, for free, at! We just started watching this brilliantly funny show this summer. I’m only up to about the middle of season two, and am seriously looking forward to the rest.

Five Months of My Life, Gone

So apparently there’s a whole series of these parodies, but I think “Hitler: Bloodthirsty Dictator, Die-hard Cowboys Fan” is the best. Sure, it’s no Planet Unicorn, but it’s definitely the funniest YouTubery I’ve seen this year. <hat tip to Andy>

Beware the Aryan Bear Brotherhood.

Washing a Cat

This Kitty Washing Machine may very well be effective, but I don’t think its efficiency trumps the fact that it looks like the cat is scared out of its mind. I think even a decade ago — before I owned any cats — that I would not have laughed at this poor feline’s frantic fright. […]

BCS Championship Game Video

How cool is the World Wide Web™? Within 24 hours of the game I was able to use μtorrent to download the entire 2006 BCS Championship Game and watch it using the latest DivX player. The 2.2GB file took about 20 hours to download, but it’s worth it. I’m considering using the office projector to […]

Misleading Trailers

My friend Joy asked me if I’d seen The Shining, the classic Stephen King movie. I saw it years and years ago, on an ancient technology known as a “VCR”, if you can believe that. (I have read the book — an even more ancient technology — several times.) She asked me if I’d seen […]

Mannequins on Skateboards

The Muppet Matrix

This is quite possibly the coolest thing I’ve ever seen on YouTube. It’s The Matrix, starring Kermit the Frog as Neo.

NBC Wakes Up

Now, instead of searching the web for “borrowed” NBC highlights, you can go to the source! We’ve taken your viral favorites and gathered them into one convenient location. Watch. React. Tell a friend. In an incredible burst of sanity, NBC has decided to do something sensible. My flabber is gasted. PS: Yes, the Natalie Portman […]

Video Blog Business Models: SXSW 2006

On Tuesday I attended a panel at SXSW titled “Video Blog Business Models“. The description of the panel — from the SXSW website — was “We have the technology, but where is the money? Learn the newest ideas for pulling revenue from the new world of blogged video content.” It was moderated by (MOD) Chris […]

Democratization of the Moving Image: SXSW 2006

On Tuesday I attended a panel at the SXSW Day Stage titled “Democratization of the Moving Image” featuring Andrew Baron (AB) and Amanda Congdon (AC) of rocketboom. I’ve been downloading the show ever since TiVo recommended it to me, and I love it, so it was great to get to see these two explain their […]

My Evil Twin

Suspect: That Burglar Is My Evil Twin Brother! William Earl Dykes, 40, says a convenience store’s surveillance video doesn’t show him breaking into the store — it’s his “evil twin brother” who’s carrying out the crime. Police aren’t buying the story, which has been debunked by the man’s sister. Dykes has a brother, she says, […]

SuperBowl Video Sets Record for Sales

The plot held no secrets, the characters were familiar, and yet neither the players nor fans who gathered at the premiere of the New England Patriots’ Super Bowl highlight video seemed to care that they saw most of the material before. Although it first went on sale this week, the video has already set a […]

WebCam Movie

I stole an idea from Bry and decided to run a little “best of” movie in place of my regular cam shot. Don’t despair. You can still click on the photo to pop open a floating window to see what I’m doing at the moment (as long as the cam is recording). I used a […]


On organizing movies: That’s interesting. I hadn’t even noticed that I meticulously order all my CDs, but not the stacks and stacks of VHS tapes that we’ve collected. They are *almost* completely random. At the old place in G-ville there was one rack where I put the best of the best (Star Wars trilogy, Indiana […]
