Burger King, how far you have fallen.

It was not so long ago that the Burger King brand revolved around being perceived as ultra Machismo Man-ism. However as of late it would appear they have dropped their masculine overtones for more topical flavor. Their newest advertising seems to play right into the mindsets of a growing consumer base that is plagued by a lost sense of irony. I feel hard pressed to find a company that has turned a faster and more complete 180 in terms of brand then Burger King's attempt to appeal to this new and growing "hipster" market. This seems akin to the Blackwater Defense Group partnering with Disney for the next Shrek Movie. Next Burger King will be offering Whoppers in Setain "meat alternative" versions. Thank god Taco Bell has not lost its way!

the iPhone - google calendar - PC - Sync Peace Treaty

Are you an pc user that owns an iphone who uses Google apps and services to help keep your life in order? If you are I bet your really frustrated in regards to how useless the ical is on the iphone because there seems to be no way to sync your Google calendar to it without owning a mac. I know I know, Google has come out with a Google app for the iphone that is supposed to make their world and the iphone a little more seamless. However the calendar interface via the iphone sux bigtime. Well thanks to the people at NuevaSync its now possible, and you don't even have to download anything! NuevaSync uses the iphones ms exchange server capabilities to ensure peace between these waring cyber-factions. The best part, as if everything I have said isn't the best part already, its a free service. So what are you waiting for, get to clickin!

Now I have seen everything

In the world of film in stage you will be hard pressed to find an actor more famous and more open about their homosexuality then Nathan Lane. I'm not exactly sure when he came out of the closet but this little piece of television history is just grand! In 1985 Nathan filmed episode 5 of season 2 of Miami Vice, it was titled "Buddies". I wont bore you with the specifics and to be honest hes only in about 5 minutes of the episode. But lets get to the grand part. He plays a stand-up comedian who also happens to be.. (dramatic pause) a rapist! And no I don't mean man on man Abercrombie & Fitch rapist, I mean the more vanilla man on woman flavor! Peep it here at hulu. I so hope this was after he came out of the closet.

Awe what a cute baby... no wait.

There seems to be this new trend in Philadelphia that is driving me out of my mind. Hip young couples seem to be taking their toddlers out to the bars on Friday. Im not sure if they think this is some fun new accessory or if they see are trying to prove to themselves and their friends that having a kid hasn't really changed their social lives at all. Either way, please stop.

Let me paint a picture for you young power parents, its Friday night, you have just finished a long work week and all you want is to sit down, sip a cold beer and bitch about yer co-workers with yer co-workers and let the night of drinks take you where it takes you. Wait what is that I hear in the background, a screaming kid. No a screaming gaggle of kids. Its a bar not Applebees. This is not really the right spot to take your screaming bundle of joy, and I have news for you. That flesh satchel the doctors cut from your girlfriends nether region has changed your social life, be responsible enough to realize that. Im not saying you can never go out again, but make arrangements, get a baby sitter, leave it in the car, do something, but stop bringing your kid to the bar! I swear the first parent that comes up to me at a bar on a Friday night and asks me to watch my language around their little kid im punching in the penis.

This is almost making me wish the city would lift the smoking ban! Well not that close but real close.

Like a wet baby bird

Claire Danes was recently spotted at the beach in all her 10 year old boy body glory. Like a wet baby bird! I have heard that to make extra money over the summer months Claire was getting inside of Queen Latifah and working her like a robot so the Queen could enjoy being "her ideal size".

The Queen at the beach.

One of my favorite dj's in the world, NYC's own Dylan Drazen has posted a new set. "Explotxion", live from Almeria, Spain. Dylan should really receive some sort of electronic music humanitarian award for posting his sets and mix tapes dating all the way back to 1998.

Get the set here.

Political Photo Of the Year

Featured on MSNBC.com's photo of the week for the week of May 1-8, this photo truly captures the most accurate depiction of the modern "middle America" republican party I have ever seen. From the overall breath of the image down to the tiny details. (photo credit: Danny Wilcox Frazier / Redux Pictures)

The photos title is "Awaiting Inspiration", however I would like to re-title it "over weight older white america asleep at the wheel".

Some things...

Many of the news services today seem to be blowing up the Clinton Crushes Obama story regarding the recent primary in West Virgina. Stating that theres still life in her campaign. Really, thats what you think it is, "life in her campaign". A white woman went up against a black man in West Virginia what the fuck did you think would be the outcome? First off I didnt even know there were any democrats in West Virginia. But I suppose the racism there was so pervasive that republicans probably switched camps for the primary to ensure a black man would not be president.

In other news I have developed 3 new addictions.
- Pre 1970 bank-notes from communist countries
- Typography rich vintage stock certificates
- A little show on BET called Hell Date

How this show isnt #1 on cable I have no idea. If you have never seen here is the basic premise: The show is set up just like the classic "Blind date" but with a twist. Ug I hate that phrase "with a twist" all the reality tv cooking and fashion shows have turned it into one of the most over used phrases on tv, but I digress. Ok so like Blind Date however its all a set up. One person on the date has no idea that this is not a real dating show, and the other person on the date picks one big disturbing character flaw a person could have and over the course of the date amplifies it to the point that by the end its completely out of control.

Heres a clip, enjoy!

Dear Adobe, could you please explain your logic regarding the placement of the ever so popular "Scissors Tool" hidden and below the rarely used "Eraser Tool"?

An end to Humanity

While riding my bike to work the other day I saw this bumper sticker. And I gotta say I completely agree with it. Being a hardened Atheist I have the unique ability to look at magical belief systems a little bit more objectively then those who believe in magic. But I would like to take this one step further, I would like to start seeing a similar bumper sticker / brand message that says "You can't be Catholic & Religious Tolerant".

At the root of any religion is a stern belief that this and only this scripture is "it", there is no room or tolerance for any other beliefs. And in fact to even entertain another view would be sacrilegious, in that it would completely undermine the entire premise. Now i'm not sure how other religions feel on abortion but this new sticker idea is very flexible. It will pretty much work for any religion, start cashing in now!

In House of Scoshua's continuing coverage of "God either doesn't exist or hates humanity"

In northeastern India a woman thought to be a witch was tied to a tree and beaten.

And in Wisconsin an 11 year old girl dies from a very treatable form of diabetes as her parents leave her fate in gods hands with prayer.

Lawless Philadelphia

Are you a criminal who specializes in violent crimes.

Tried of looking over your shoulder for the strong arm of the law.


These are just a few of the glowing benefits you can enjoy.

- High cost of living = a greater "take" in muggings
- Almost no public perception of getting help from police
- Secluded, rarely patrolled urban areas providing extra privacy for you and your victim
- Enjoy committing crimes surrounded by classic American history
- A city flooded with like-minded individuals you could even consider expanding your criminal enterprise.
- Problem loosing your handgun, no worries in Philadelphia you can purchase as many as you want. Thats right NO LIMIT HANDGUN LAW, this could even create a new line of business for you!

Jaga, give me sight beyond sight

I think that if we could somehow capture an image of Tyra Banks spirit it would look very similar to this...

As everyone knows 2012 will be the end of the world a-la-Mayan Calendar. And while this news is certainly not in my top 10 things I want to happen prior to our earthly demise it just might be in my top 100. Disney has announced the promise of a sequel to what just may arguably be their greatest movie TRON. Not enough chips on the table for you, no fear. They will also be re-releasing TRON 1 in 3-D! I can think of no better way to ring in the end of humanity!

Levin Concepts

BoConcepts, the modern high-class lifestyle furniture store, recently created the worlds longest sofa. Really? This just seems a little "state fair" for such a luxury brand. Whats next, Nobu to make the worlds largest California roll, or Maybach to create the worlds longest limo? Hey Bo, and yes I think we can officially call you Bo, lets try to at the very least maintain your bar if not try and raise it.

The Best/Worst/Best/Worst Sequel Ever : 8mm 2

Saw this over the weekend. Let me first say, it's totally watchable. However what it has to do with 8mm I have no idea. It's a lot like a Cinemax after-hours movie with a more solid story. And just like the Steven Segal movie we reviewed 8mm 2 is also filmed in Budapest. What is up with Budapest being the go to location for really bad/good movies? If ya get a chance and there is absolutely nothing else to do its worth a watch. (FYI if you have Comcast digital you can watch it free via on-demand free movies.)

Off to a good start!

Thanks Tim & Eric!

Bad Ass Pussy

Hey all! I just got my blogger login codes from the President. So i'm all ready to blow up the cybersphere. Hope you all enjoy this vid. This cat puts mine to shame! Tonka if you are listening... i know you're snipped, but you really need to grow a pair!

Well at least we have a number to work with.

Gizmodo recently posted information on the costs behind building an actual real life size Gundam. While weapon systems seem to be lacking from the list it's certainly a good start. With the cost of a B-2 bomber coming in at 2 billion a pop, it would seem as though the Gundam might just be the way to go.

Random Encounter'z

So I had a meeting today in the Philadelphia metropolitan area. While riding the elevator up to my floor I had a pleasure of having this conversation.

Lady: "Sure is a beautiful day out today."

Me: "Yea I think spring is way early this year."

Lady: "Yea we really only had a few days of winter."

Me: "Yea it's really crazy."

Lady "Have you read the bible lately?"

Sound effect in my head: (needle sliding off record)

Me: "Um,, no"

Lady: "Can I give you some information?"

Me: (I never turn down a chance to get documented material from people) "Sure."

It seems they are off to an early start this year, those other religious should take a page from the Christians if they want to come out ahead in "Magic Race" 2009.

As a side note, after my meetings I had lunch at El Vez, one of my fav lunch spots here in Philadelphia. I ate at the bar for a little extra space to work out some to-do list action and this very cliche looking business man was beside me also enjoying some happy lunch time. His lunch consisted of 2 of their Mexican Pizza appetizers and 3 Martini's! Now that's what I call lunch!

Maury in '08

As 2008 races into the broadcast season the Maury Show will once again fill its stage with questionable lifestyle choices that have inevitably resulted in the birth of a child or 12. But this really isn't anything new to Maury viewers and in fact has been the overwhelming theme to the show for many seasons. While I realize there are likely to be no shortage of guests fitting this criteria I do believe faithful viewers of the show need demand more after so much repetition.

So without further ado I bring you my Maury Show concept(s) for 2008.

For the ladies:
- Should this be your first time on the show and you are getting a paternity test and you proclaim your absolute certainty that so and so is the father and it turns out “not” to be the father, the mother gets her tubes tied right there on the show.

- Should this be your second or more time on the show and you are getting a paternity test and you proclaim your absolute certainty that so and so is the father and it turns out “not” to be the father, the child in question gets euthanized right there on the show.

For the fellas:
- Should this be your first time on the show and the test shows you “are” the father you get a vasectomy right there on the show.

- Should this be your second or more time on the show and the test shows you “are” the father you get castrated right there on the show.

Now thats must see tv!
