Out of nowhere, an angel came down and gave me a guitar filled with milk. 

I guess Zach Shipps and Dick Valentine (and maybe some other guys) from the Electric Six have come up with a viral ad campaign for milk...kinda like the Darkness powered by sweet milky goodness (aka White Gold).

The Legend Begins

He has a "One Gallon Axe" which is a guitar filled with milk.

LazyWeb Question: 

Does anybody in my immediate area (Zip: 48103) have Comcast's Hi-Def package? I currently have the Preferred Digital package and am looking to add the HD stuff, but I can't actually tell which channels I would get.

Through some magical beans I traded for a cow, I currently get ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX and PBS in HD...would paying an extra $7 a month get me a bunch of cool channels?

Comcast's website is not very clear.

Lemme know if you've got this service and what channels I could get. Thank you for solving all of my TV-related problems.

Chuck Berry Remembers Call From Cousin About White Kid Playing 'Johnny B. Goode'

APRIL 18, 2008 | ISSUE 44*16

WENTZVILLE, MO-In a shocking revelation that turns a half century of
rock-and-roll history on its head, legendary musician Chuck Berry
recalled Monday how he got the idea for his iconic song "Johnny B.
Goode"-believed for decades to have been written by Berry himself-after
listening to a white teenager playing it over the telephone. "I'll never
forget that night back in 1955 when I got the call from [cousin] Marvin
[Berry] saying, 'Chuck, this is that sound you've been looking for!'"
recounted Berry, explaining that his cousin was playing an "Enchantment
Under The Sea"-themed high school dance when the mysterious teen, Calvin
Klein, took to the stage and single-handedly invented rock and roll as
we now know it. "Marvin held up the phone and I heard the song that
would make me famous. Then I stole it."

From The Onion.


A very fun short movie called I Hate Drake which is a guy reading his childhood diary entry about how he hates the school bully.
The part where he says the worst word ever is my favorite part. He is very sincere.

Third Floor: Napping and Insanity 


Here is Time-lapse footage of a guy who was trapped in an Elevator in the McGraw-Hill building for 41 hours.

My big questions are:

1. What is he doing with his arms at Hour 13 (1m 26s)? Some kind of sit-down YMCA?

2. What is the card game he is playing at hour 23 (1m 45s)? "What Crazy Shit Is in My Wallet?"

3. Where/When did he pee?

4. What would you do?

Update: Great commentary on BoingBoing.

My new denim jacket 

So, not to reveal myself as a middle school girl, but I am way into this Facebook application called "Pieces of Flair."


It is basically a collection of icons with a cool "button" photoshop glare on them, but man oh man am I into it. Here's why:

1. It allows users to offer a visual snapshot of all of the things they are into. Just like new wavers and metalheads in the early '80s, the application (and careful consideration of arrangement and placement) reveals what you think is important or worth noting. These are the bumper stickers for a massive car that is the Facebook you.

2. You can find funny things that are really specific and either add 'em, yourself, or send 'em to friends. Cases in point:

The weird three-ball-in-mouth guy from the Exile on Main Street album cover
Totally random, but any hardcore Stones fan is going to see that and go
"Ha! The Exile three-ball guy!" while most mortals will be beyond baffled.

The "Who is Driving? Oh My God Bear is Driving How Can That Be?!?1?" button from the Clerks animated series.
Robot Dancing
Pretty random, but anybody who has seen it will know the hilarity.

A quote from an outtake/blooper from the TV show "Firefly."
A total random moment, but those that have consumed the show will chuckle.

These little nuances really help to personalize the panel and let you really pin down the elements that define what your interests are.

3. The process for creating your own buttons is lightweight, simple and easy. The template only allows images <100KB and provides a way to resize the image in the browser window. You have the option of making the button private (my Hank flair) or public (the Porchsleeper button). Simple and fun.

Overall, I am distainful of the Zombies, Karma and Superpokes that Facebook has to offer, but spending my vacation looking for Grilled Cheese, Say Anything and Trogdor flair to send to Mrs. DataWhat has been a total blast all week long.

P.S. Things I have discovered:
There is no Johnny Hartman flair
There is no Richard Buckner flair
There is no pork chop sandwiches flair
There is a lot more Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends flair than Foster's beer flair
There is no Free Design flair
There is a surprising amount of Richard Nixon flair
There is very little Banjo flair, and most of it references Deliverance in some way
There are two pieces of Bubb Rubb flair, but no Tron Guy flair


Thanks PJ

This Saturday from 3-7 there will be an art show at WAREHAÜS (which is accurately enough the warehouse on Liberty and First streets, right down from the Blind Pig). Anyhoo, my sister is one of the artistes and it should be a pretty cool event.

Who's House?


Whose house? WAREHAÜS

“It’s a beautiful day for baseball!” 

This group called "Improv Everywhere" does wild things like showing up at a local band show at a bar with 100 people and cheering for the band, or going to Best Buy in khaki pants and Best Buy-color blue polo shirts (like 100 of them) and just milling around.

This time they went to a little league game in Hermosa Beach CA with a whole bunch of "fans" who memorized the players names, handed out programs, sold popcorn and brought the jumbotron TV from NBC Sports. They even got Jim Gray to call the game.

The kids go out of their minds with happiness:

Super fun.
This makes me happy to be an American.
And a person.

"Wow, this looks even dumber than air guitar." 

Yow. So there's this product called Beamz and apparently it is a laserbeam-triggered "musical" "instrument" and it has a brutally horribllarious infomercial:

Comments from Gizmodo:

Good thing they showed us a guy with tousled hair, sunglasses and bluejeans so we know he's rockin'.

Every single maneuver seems onanistic.

this thing makes everyone look like a cat playing with a ball of yarn or the dorkiest traffic cop there is.

The bald, fat guy listening to his quiet reverie looks like he's about to burst into tears, pawing at nothingness on his $600 scam machine in a dark room in a vain attempt to fill his empty, empty soul.

it was so bad, I threw up in someone else's mouth.

I think you're all missing the point. This clearly isn't a musical device, it's a contraceptive! No one using this will EVER get laid, so it's clearly a total success!

This reminded me of the guy who gave the awesome keyboard drum solo demonstration:

"This is Lock and Loll"

and of course, McRorie.


Thanks Goody

This Book Deserves a Poo-litzer Prize 

This duder took pictures of graffiti in the bathroom stalls of Michigan Universities and made hizself a book:

"Now, inspiration struck me one day, long, long ago. I was in the Library at Oakland University, studying. I soon realized that I should swing by the office because I had to make a conference call. The bathroom of choice is on the basement floor. So I go down there, and I am doing my business, and I am reading the graffiti on the walls It says, "Rick Moranis has enormous horse balls."

What compels a human to write such an outrageous claim? What a statement. I was in shock, I was baffled, I was confused. It was beautiful. It was poetic. It was the most astonishingly brilliant piece of literature that I had ever read I almost teared up. And at that very moment, I was struck with inspiration. This dark side of the human brain needs to be exposed. There needs to be light shed."

You too?
read the fine print
