derren brown

Cory Doctorow was hypnotized into buying Derren Brown's dvd.

Don't trust this guy.

Check out some of his youtube videos. He's talented at something, but openly admits that he may or may not be full of shit.

Here is the taco bell logo... and the taco bell logo inside out! More here.

Know what this reminds me of?

I come across this article every few months, and I read it every time.

christmas joke

J-Walk told me to post this joke (and to credit the source).

A man in Chicago calls his son in New York the day before Christmas and says, "I hate to ruin Christmas this year, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough."

"Pop, what are you talking about?" the son screams. "We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the father says. "We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Atlanta and tell her."

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. "Like hell they're getting divorced," she shouts, "I'll take care of this."

She calls Chicago immediately, and screams at her father, "You are NOT getting divorced. Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?" and hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. "Okay," he says, "they're coming for Christmas and paying their own way."

pitchfork list

December means Pitchfork's end-of-year lists (including best 50 music videos and worst 20 albums covers). I didn't listen to much new music this year, so I recognize about four albums on the top 50 list. Still, they're fun to read... even though Era Vulgaris is nowhere to be found.

Also, did I discover a coincidence or is the money-wallpaper thing common in rap album covers?

Sherri Sheperd is still an idiot, and she is still on television.

And in case you forgot:

About a month ago, Shea told me that I'd been relentlessly taking from the internet, and that it was about time I gave something back. I agreed.

Here are links to the results of two Google searches:


"my space bar is broken"

Everyone in the second result is either good at improvising or a liar.
