Louis C.K. waxes philosophical about technology on Conan O'Brian


For my money Louis C.K. is one of the funniest comedians working today.

Diddy wants to be the next James Bond


pdiddy_waverunnerYou know that video 2 girls, 1 cup?  Although I have refused to actually watch that, I would rather see that a few hundred times than have to watch this again.

Diddy posted a video on his blog announcing his new 5-minute movie “I Am King”, which is not so much of a movie as it is an advertisement for Diddy’s new fragrance called…(wait for it) “I Am King”.

“This blog is about my new fragrance “I Am King” available at Macy’s, exclusively at Macy’s and I’m debuting the movie for “I Am King” that’s the name of the fragrance, that’s the name of the movie.  I’d like to dedicate this movie to all the men out there that take care of your children, your families and respect and treat yourself like the kings that we all are, because we are children of God.  And I’d also like to say this is my audition tape.  Y’all know I’ve been out there getting my hustle on in Hollywood, I just landed like a role on CSI: Miami, about to announce this movie and, I feel like I am…best suited to be the next James Bond.  We got a black President, it’s time for a black Bond.  So this is also my audition tape and it’s the movie for the fragrance, “I Am King”.  And I’d also like to dedicate the fragrance to Martin Luther King, Muhammad Ali, Barack Obama this fragrance is dedicated to you.  Strong, intelligent, powerful black men.  If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t be here, a lot of us wouldn’t be here and hopefully we can follow in your footsteps.  Here’s the movie, OK?  Check it out.”

This is seriously the worst thing I’ve ever seen, if for no other reason than Diddy takes himself so seriously.  The “movie” looks like a weird remake of Biggie’s Hypnotize video that was released posthumously.  Come on Diddy, how many “auditions” do you need?

It’s great how Diddy goes through his entire spiel, and even mentions his role in CSI: Miami before throwing in that this fragrance is dedicated to Martin Luther King, Muhammad Ali and Barack Obama.  Because without them paving the way, we may all have been forced to wear Derek Jeter’s fragrance, “Driven”.  We shall overcome…scentless men.

Steroids out, Viagra in: Is that a banana in your pocket or are you just happy to tackle me?


Yikes:

Viagra, or sildenafil citrate, was devised to treat pulmonary hypertension, or high blood pressure in arteries of the lungs. The drug works by suppressing an enzyme that controls blood flow, allowing the vessels to relax and widen. The same mechanism facilitates blood flow into the penis of impotent men. In the case of athletes, increased cardiac output and more efficient transport of oxygenated fuel to the muscles can enhance endurance.

The phrase, “choking up on his bat”, will never be the same.

Vatican forgives John Lennon for Jesus remark


I’m sure the guy who wrote about a world without religion, will finally be able to rest easy now that the Vatican has forgiven him.

“The remark by John Lennon, which triggered deep indignation mainly in the United States, after many years sounds only like a ‘boast’ by a young working-class Englishman faced with unexpected success, after growing up in the legend of Elvis and rock and roll,” Vatican daily Osservatore Romano said.

Guess they finally decided it pales in comparison to that whole pesky inquisition thing.

Meet your tiny, flying robot overlords: Little bee-like brother is watching


Either I’m getting older or the future is getting a whole lot scarier.  Or quite possibly both.  I wonder if every generation feels like this at some point, watching the advancements of what is to come?

U.S. military engineers are trying to design flying robots disguised as insects that could one day spy on enemies and conduct dangerous missions without risking lives.

“The way we envision it is, there would be a bunch of these sent out in a swarm,” said Greg Parker, who helps lead the research project at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton. “If we know there’s a possibility of bad guys in a certain building, how do we find out? We think this would fill that void.”

I’m sure they’ll only use this for spying on suspected bad people, and it will never fall into the wrong hands.  I mean, what could possibly go wrong with this kind of technology?  Maybe we could get the bee like robots to carry around poison and sting “enemy combatants” rather than capturing them and having a pesky judge order their release.

The rise and fall of Sarah Palin


From Vice Presidential hopeful to being interviewed while turkeys are being slaughtered in the background.  If it would be hilarious if it wasn’t so damn scary.  The expressions on the guy slaughtering the turkeys behind her is priceless.  It’s as if he’s saying, “is she serious?”
