Geico Lulz


I love the marketing team at Geico. That's why I saved tons of money on my car insurance and switched over to them.

Stunning video is stunning. Everything is perfect about it: The cast, the acting, the story, the styling...

The pretentiousness that is The Matrix makes me want to loathe slow motion shots, but slow motion is just so fascinating! Share the love with me:

This amazing and violent slow motion that actually inspired my photography project:

3. Where I shot "slow motion" to capture people's funny face reactions when I dumped water on them. Without them knowing....

Photobucket Photobucket
Because with slow motion still images you can capture those subtle moments not visible to the human eye.
5. As far as MOVIES are concerned, Accidents Happen had a more stunning scene than Neo dodging bullets. Just saying.
Blood by The Middle East if you were wondering.

Here's to loving the art without associating it with the blockbuster.

Hear Hear: Miss Kittin

For anyone who is a fan of M.I.A. you will probably LOVE Miss Kittin. She's like the French version of M.I.A. and the French keep popping out great acts. It's that same electronic, beat driven kind of music with spoken words and short verses. However I will say that Miss Kittin has beats that are more house/club than M.I.A.'s experimental drum and bass.

"You need to put on some sort of sparkly stuff before hand..."


People will do anything I tell you.

Honor the new Tron Movie: Turn your Bike into a Light Cycle

Damn I can't wait for Tron to come out.

The Night Bright Tyre comes with LED lights built into the rubber of the tire. When the wheels are spinning you get the stunning Tron ring of light effect. Perhaps if your legs can go fast enough you can also leave a trail of light behind you. In addition to your bike looking like a BAMF the tires are also good for safety and that other irrelevant nonsense.

The tires aren't for sale YET, but I'll take a pair when they come out.

Check out the official website

Now if you're feeling crafty it is possible to put LED lights on your bike yourself (probably won't look as slick or stunning at the Night Bright Tyre but in the darkness does it really matter?)

Oh Sh-

Spoke POV DIY: Labor intensive and you need some knowledge of wiring and programming and stuff that is generally confusing BUT you get a BAMF end result.

I've seen those at Walgreens!

You can also buy Valve Caps for your wheels that are LEDs, however just having one LED in your wheel means you'll have to pedal faster for the Tron effect. Cheap and easy though.

Ah Sweet Baroque Era, I Yearn for Thee

Creative Choreography is Creative.

JGL and HitRecord

I just want to promote Joseph Gordon Levitt's mass-multimedia-production-social network-like company because it's a great idea and just like Fun Theory, makes for quality products.

JGL talks about the concept behind HitRecord and is generally a BAMF.

ANYONE can join the site and post ideas for movies, music, art, photography, etc. on the site. And other users will give you feedback and if they love it enough they may help you in making that idea a reality. (Giuseppe Levitt gives a good example in the video). And the best part is that if the final product somehow generates revenue, everyone who helped make it will get money for it.

I'm signing up now and I suggest everyone check it out. There are so many creative people in this world, Hit Record allows talent from anywhere to collaborate and come up with great art.

I am loving I'm Remembering!

I'm Remembering! is a blog about pop-culture nostalgia from the 80s and early 90s, and it is the bomb. Here a few of my favorite posts:

I remember I used to take the color-changing tablets and stick it in my mouth instead of in the bottle. It was sour and fizzy, and it made my tongue turn weird colors.

I don't think I'll ever get tired of these Inception posters

Nice job Facebook games.

Interesting Tricks of the Body
that don't require Advil, Tylenol or Klonopin.

Experience supersonic hearing: If you're stuck chatting up a mumbler at a cocktail party, lean in with your right ear. It's better than your left at following the rapid rhythms of speech, according to researchers at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. If, on the other hand, you're trying to identify that song playing softly in the elevator, turn your left ear toward the sound. The left ear is better at picking up music tones.

Overcome your most primal urge: Need to pee? No bathroom nearby? Fantasize about Jessica Simpson. Thinking about sex preoccupies your brain, so you won't feel as much discomfort, says Larry Lipshultz, M.D., chief of male reproductive medicine at the Baylor College of Medicine. For best results, try Simpson's "These Boots Are Made for Walking" video.

MMMM, Feilhaber.
Jessica Simpson may be fine for some....I'll stick to my favorite Team America player.

Clear your stuffed nose: Forget Sudafed. An easier, quicker, and cheaper way to relieve sinus pressure is by alternately thrusting your tongue against the roof of your mouth, then pressing between your eyebrows with one finger. This causes the vomer bone, which runs through the nasal passages to the mouth, to rock back and forth, says Lisa DeStefano, D.O., an assistant professor at the Michigan State University college of osteopathic medicine. The motion loosens congestion; after 20 seconds, you'll feel your sinuses start to drain.
(Side note: Golden Hot Pants hasn't tried this personally but I'm waiting for my next immune system breakdown to try it. Want to confirm if this really works).

Cure your toothache without opening your mouth: Just rub ice on the back of your hand, on the V-shaped webbed area between your thumb and index finger. A Canadian study found that this technique reduces toothache pain by as much as 50 percent compared with using no ice. The nerve pathways at the base of that V stimulate an area of the brain that blocks pain signals from the face and hands.
(Really want to test out this one too. Next time I have a tooth ache for sure!)

Unstitch your side: If you're like most people, when you run, you exhale as your right foot hits the ground. This puts downward pressure on your liver (which lives on your right side), which then tugs at the diaphragm and creates a side stitch, according to The Doctors Book of Home Remedies for Men. The fix: Exhale as your left foot strikes the ground. 

Thaw your brain: Too much Chipwich snowball or Cold Stone too fast will freeze the brains of lesser men. As for you, press your tongue flat against the roof of your mouth, covering as much as you can. "Since the nerves in the roof of your mouth get extremely cold, your body thinks your brain is freezing, too," says Abo. "In compensating, it overheats, causing an ice-cream headache." The more pressure you apply to the roof of your mouth, the faster your headache will subside.

Breathe underwater: If you're dying to retrieve that quarter from the bottom of the pool, take several short breaths first—essentially, hyperventilate. When you're underwater, it's not a lack of oxygen that makes you desperate for a breath; it's the buildup of carbon dioxide, which makes your blood acidic, which signals your brain that somethin' ain't right. "When you hyperventilate, the influx of oxygen lowers blood acidity," says Jonathan Armbruster, Ph.D., an associate professor of biology at Auburn University. "This tricks your brain into thinking it has more oxygen." It'll buy you up to 10 seconds.

Being able to hold your breath underwater is great for getting amazing underwater photographs.

Starting Pitcher, You Sucka!!

No Mas Presents: Dock Ellis & The LSD No-No by James Blagden

Ask a Silly Question a la Craigslist

I have 2 dogs & I was buying a large bag of Pal at Big W and standing inline at the check out.

A woman behind me asked if I had a dog.

On impulse, I told her that no, I was starting The Pal Diet again although I probably shouldn't because I'd ended up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IV's in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is to load your pants pockets with Pal nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry & that the food is nutritionally complete so I was going to try it again.

I have to mention here that practically everyone in the line was by now enthralled with my story, particularly a guy who was behind her.

Horrified, she asked if I'd ended up in the hospital in that condition because I had been poisoned. I told her no; it was because I'd been sitting in the street licking my balls and a car hit me.

I thought one guy was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard as he staggered out the door.

Stupid b*tch...why else would I buy dog food?? 

I love sarcastic people.

The Fun Theory

I just want to call attention to a group that calls itself The Fun Theory and aims to "change people's behavior for the better" by making every day tasks fun. All of their ideas are just so creative and forward thinking. I wish these ideas could be implemented on a massive scale all over the world. Private investors, where you at?

Insert old can as credit. Pull slot lever for chance to win a free, cold drink.

The Public Transportation Train that turns each riding ticket into a lottery ticket. "The whole train erupts into a party when someone wins" and money falls from the ceiling.

Seriously, check out the other ideas on the website. It's so simple and we can make cities so much nicer with more fun.
