Douche Off

I found this video on Youtube, and I thought that I would share it. It's basically a contest between two guys to see which one of them can be the biggest douche bag. The contest is funny (and describes a lot of guys that I know) and the result is surprising. Enjoy :)

My Makeshift Duet with Alex Goot - Everytime We Touch, Cascada

In the Information Age, sometimes a person doesn't even have to be physically present with someone else to sing a duet with them. Just listen to this amazing example that I found from Youtube of a pretty blond girl called Cascada singing a duet with emerging musician Alex Goot (who has an amazing voice too, btw) based off prerecorded songs that both of them had done and some clever sound mixing.

In the next incarnation of this concept, they are going to start synthesizing the voices entirely (but probably not for a few years)!

Leave a comment and let me know what you think of the singing abilities of these two artists. Do you think either of them can make it big in the music industry? Are Alex Goot and Cascada the next big thing?

Girl falls into fountain while texting at the Berkshire Mall

One of the all time great viral videos to hit the web, this video shows a lady falling into a fountain at the Berkshire Mall because she is too busy texting someone to notice where she is walking. As far as funny videos of people falling go, this one is a classic.

How to write an 300 word article in 7 minutes

How to write an 300 word article in 7 minutes:

A quick introduction (which is also a good way to fill space): If you’re writing an article in 7 minutes for some of the “pay-for-hits” sites (like Associated Content and Helium), you probably need money way worse than I do. Here are some tips to decrease your article writing time and make the time value of your money that much greater. 

1.       Use bullet points and fill in later:
You should take an example from the way that I’m writing this article. I am writing the bullet points first (which is the main part of the article people read anyway) and filling in the details after. You should do something similar with all of the 7 minute articles you write.

2.       Use easy grammar, common knowledge, and first person voice:
Notice that I am using the first person voice, a present tense, and very common knowledge suggestions for the article that I am writing. You should take a similar approach in your article writing. Remember also to write about common knowledge things. Everyone knows that the Nazis were bad and Jesus was good (almost everyone), so throw that in somewhere.
3.       Don’t get stuck on details or depth:
Don’t get hung up on technical details, like the exact rest mass of Hydrogen.  Write about simple things, like aphorisms or feel good stories about your kids puking up their lunch. Nobody reads an article for information anymore – they read it to be entertained.

4.       If all else fails, write nonsense:
Half of the stuff that I’ve written in this article is complete gibberish. However, it is a 300 word article. Also, if I can draw out the length a bit more, then I will have finished it in well under 7 minutes.

Final Time: 6:42

Joke: Black Baby "Mother" -- 1/2 a word

One time, a black baby was sitting with her very young son. Suddenly, the son looked over at the mother and opened his mouth.

"Mmmm . . . mmmm . . . moooo . . .," he started to say.

The mother became very excited and exclaimed, "Go on baby."

"Mmmm . . . mmmmoooooo . . . moooottttthhh . . . ,"

"Oh, keep going, you beautiful chocolate baby."

"Mmmmmm . . . mmmmooo . . . moootttthhhh . . . mmmmmoooooottthhhheeeeerrrrr. . . .


"Shanene," the mother yelled to her daughter, "go call your father. They baby just said half of a word!"

Jared Lee Loughner (Alleged Tucson Arizona Shooter) Youtube Video Compilation

Gabrielle Giffords - 2009Image via Wikipedia
I found this compilation of Youtube videos from Jared Lee Loughner, the man accused of shooting Gabrielle Giffords and killing 6 other people, including a federal judge, in Tucson Arizona in January, 2011. It looks like the links to the originals of his videos might have been taken down by the staff at Youtube. However, I've managed to find a compilation of his videos that were republished using other user accounts.

The information presented in these videos, and the manner in which it is presented, is weird and disturbing. At certain points, he seems to repeat himself over and over with obvious statements, somewhat akin to stating "1 + 1 = 2." It's grotesque.
