Stress Relief

Monday, February 2 by

The post-Super Bowl hour long episode of The Office starts off with a disgruntled Dwight starting a fire to teach the workers how to deal with fire, the hard way. "Everybody calm the !@#$ down!" Says Michael. The whole place goes into chaotic fury– Michael tries to break a window, Oscar climbs up into the ceiling (only to fall out), Kevin loots the vending machine, Jim rams the Xerox into the door to try and get it open, etc. Dwight sounds his air horn, and tells the employees that it was merely a simulation. Stanley has a heart attack, with Michael set on giving him mouth to mouth. Things are off to an awesome start.

The 17 Best Super Bowl Ads

Monday, February 2 by

When the economy tanks so do the ads. Whether companies are wanting to spend less on high-budget spots or they're trying to be more in tune with the popularity of viral videos this year, most of the ads were stripped-down compared to years past. There  were a few very entertaining ones (but nothing on the level of Cat Herders).  The game was good and here are our favorites.Doritos- Free Doritos Free Doritos Ad-Superbowl 2009 – Watch more Free Videos

How’s Your News: Laughing With or Laughing At?

Monday, February 2 by

I have no idea how this steered clear of my radar for so long. It's a show, financed by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, airing on MTV, about a team of traveling news reporters who all have disabilities. It's being touted as an "inspiring" story. Here's some background that I found on the website and the video preview.

Even Babies Can Lose Their Money By Day Trading.

Monday, February 2 by

These are "outtakes" from the eTrade talking babies campaign. I think it's kind of awesome that giant corporations are now in an ad world where they are not beholden to FCC regulations. They can do way more risky things and end up getting way more intentional views of their spots just by having them online. The PETA thing is a perfect example, even though they are a traditional business. They were banned from being aired during the game so the blogosphere basically distributed the video for them. As more and more companies realize that the traditional 'make a multi-million dollar commercial and then pay a pile of money on a 30 second spot' is not the way to go, it's going to shake things up. Which is why I'm stockpiling ammunition, canned food, and bottled water.

BOOM!: Revenge of the Fallen Super Bowl Spot

Monday, February 2 by

We are living in exciting times people. EXCITING TIMES. When Rutherford B. Robot invented the first robot, I doubt he had the foresight to visualize just how far things would come. But today, with Rutherford's dream realized, we stand perched on a new world of fighting machines. We now enter a bold  era of metal on metal destruction. And we have people like Michael Bay bearing the standard on our march. Awesome. BOOM!

How the Other Half Lives

Sunday, February 1 by

It was a bad week for Panther Nation. And after a loss like last week’s, you have to start asking questions about the abilities of Coach Taylor. The annual coach’s barbecue was not held at the residence of Coach Taylor this year, rumors swirled about his relationship with the booster club, and Matt Saracen succumbed to stress all week. Things looked pretty bleak from his standpoint; there were many crises, challenges as well as victories this week as the eternal search for a state championship wore on.     After hearing the news of Smash’s future tryout with Texas A-M, Mrs. Williams tried to get another job to pay for his education. This was met anxiously by Brian, because he didn’t want to be a burden, financially or otherwise, on his family. His second thoughts about football crept back after he was offered a corporate promotion with the Alamo-Freeze. After conversing with his mother, however, he decided that football was his true love, and he realized his mother would not let him stop playing until someone told him he could not play anymore.

BSG Recap: The Oath

Sunday, February 1 by

"This time, it's personal." That's been a running joke ever since I can remember, and probably predates the infamous Jaws III poster, but sometimes, the biggest events happen just because somebody got their feelings hurt.  Former Speaker of the House Tip O'Neil once famously said, "all politics is local," but I don't think he got specific enough, because, really, all politics is personal.  And sometimes people in power don't care if they turn the entire world upside down in order to get atonement, or revenge, or maybe just an apology.Sometimes, lots and lots of people die as a result.Previously, on Battlestar Galactica,  Saul Tigh tells us, the last episode. Also: the entire run of the series.

REVIEW: Taken

Friday, January 30 by

 I can get a decent amount done in 96 hours. Maybe make a sandwich, sleep, do some work, watch some movies, argue with my girlfriend, go to the gym. In Taken, Liam Neeson is on the next level of productivity. Here are a few of the things he was able to do in the same time period.  Warning:  there are spoilers.

Super Weekend Movie Preview Bowl

Friday, January 30 by

Ahh yes– Superbowl Sunday. Better eat til you puke, watch crazy ads (Sobe has one in 3D!), and bet lots of money on the only game that matters, EVER. To kill time before that you have a movie with Liam Neeson beating the everloving crap out of Albanian woman-smugglers, and a horror movie with an actress that made a porn with Seth Rogen. Oh yeah, the Boss* is playing the half time show. Your preview, and possibly the best football themed music video ever produced after the jump.

Everybody's gotta have a viral video these days. I gotta give these two credit for the intricately choreographed little duo dance. I would not have the cranial capacity to remember all the movies. Impressive. Now get back to work.
