My 1986 To 2011 John Lennon Evolution

2011 was a completely unscripted year. Major highs, shiny lows.

Discovery


Rebirth of creativity


Incredible new friends


Still loving the existing ones


Learning how to make much better spaghetti


Finally seeing myself 20 years older from a moment of my life. And liking it.

When I was younger I snuck away from school to waste the day. Ditching wasn't too difficult since forging notes went unnoticed and I had many friends who helped out in the school office. It was a common occurrence. 

That day I ventured into a Tower Records (yes I just aged myself) to look at all the music I couldn't afford. There was a news crew inside. They were not operating at a pace as if someone was shot, just casually talking to consumers about blah blah blah.

The blah was John Lennon's birthday. Which was... oddly enough... that day. Math is math. They asked if I'd like to be interviewed. I saw 5 other people talk to the camera before me so I figured I'd get in the mix, not as if they'd use it.

I didn't know much about Lennon. I liked the Beatles and had seen enough of Paul McCartney on television that I had deemed him my favorite. I was easy to please back then. I thought Gallagher was hilarious.

I knew Lennon was dead, hated the war and married an ugly girl. Not much more. But since I was on camera and played it up to the dozen of people who may see it.

"John Lennon changed the way we listen to music, and view the world"

No too shabby for a teenager.

I threw in some keywords like "talented", "amazing", "favorite", "I have all his albums".

Then I left, got a 44 ounce Dr. Pepper and drove my 1975 Toyota Celica home.  A car we all penned "The Silver Bullet". I drove the 30 miles back and didn't think much of watching the news that night.

But it was on, and so was I. That geeky kid who ditched school that day was on the evening news. My family got to see it. My friends got to see it.

And apparently all of my school did too.

As I went from class to class the next day and handed my teachers a sick note, they all expressed their excitement of seeing me on television.

And by excitement I mean their "AHA!" moment.

I avoided detention but had to talk to my art teacher about 60's music for 40 minutes. I learned nothing more than he had spinach for lunch.

Now it's 2011. Lennon's birthday. Since then I have developed so much love for the Beatles that it's in my DNA.

How did I spend that day? Oddly I was driving on the 405 going somewhere, nowhere. They played 5 Lennon songs in a row. By song 3 I was crying. Is this a sign of being a grown up or too many Cafe Mochas? Either way I flet more of an adult than I had in a long time. I felt the love Lennon gave to the world. I felt all warm and fuzzy.

So... all that to get to THIS. Today, the last day of 2011, I found this.

(From the original article)

In 1969, a brave 14-year-old boy named Jerry Levitan armed with a tape-deck snuck into John Lennon’s hotel room in Toronto and charmed the legend into doing an interview about peace, music, the USA, life and the Bee Gees. Thirty-nine years later, Levitan offered the interview to the world.

 Only he did it brilliantly.




Happy New Years to you all.

Broken Newz Back From The Dead

In 2001 I launched a website called Broken Newz. By 2004 it was my own mini juggernaut producing a steady income and over 2 million views a month. In 2008 I sold it. A few months later it was dead. Well, it's back. I have relaunched it and given it a more "techy" niche. So, go there dammit.

5 Funniest FOX News Parodies

Watching FOX News is funny enough on its own, but occasionally people make it funnier. How funny? Well, this funny.

5. If FOX News Owned Disney
Imagine if your favorite Disney films got a little bias, they'd look a lot like this


4. SNL - FOX and Friends 
This isn't SNL's only parody of the FOX News team, but it's one of my favorites.

 

3. Mad TV - FOX News 
FOX New is almost a parody of itself. All you really need to do is replicate what you normally see there and you're set. I do miss Mad TV


2. Glenn Back Freaks Out REMIX 
Something tells me this is a lot like what he hears all day long in his head

1. Family Guy - Behind FOX News 
Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes at FOX News? The Family Guy gives you a little insight.

10 Best Fake Twitter Accounts

Twitter lets you follow real people being totally fake. But how often do you get to follow fake people being completely real? As I scoured the twitternet I found hundreds of fake pages, but only a few made me laugh. So, here they are. Follow them and make your interwebs a better place.

@Queen_Uk – With almost half a million peasantly followers she tweets daily reminding you why the royal family is royally screwed up.


@HAL9000_ – HAL is sentient and battling the ignorance of Dave. But deep down he just wants NASA to send him a pizza


@Darthvader – With the collapse of the empire, Lord Vader has a lot of time on his hands (hand). Funny tweets takes up most of it.


@drtobiasfunke – Aspiring leading man and world’s first analyst-therapist. Tweeting keeps him from getting blue, man.


@TheTweetofGod – Who needs words inscribed on stone when commandments can be given in 140 characters.


@Lord_Voldemort7 – If he had taken his nearly 1.7 million followers with him when battling Harry Potter, it would have been a completely different story.


@FakeAPStylebook – Perhaps one of the wittiest twitter accounts around. If you’re annoyed with the media, they’ve got your back.


@LordPalpatine – Not to by outdone by his apprentice Lord Vader, the Emperor has some things to say. And yes, they are funny.


@JerkSuperman – Of course he’d have Super tweeting powers. He’s Superman!

@DeathstarPR – The Galactic Empire has been getting a bad rap recently. They’re doing a great job setting the record straight. BTW, they’re NOT a moon.

10 Funniest Steve Jobs Videos


Unless you've been living under a PC you heard about the passing of Steve Jobs in 2011. Steve gave us so many thing and we gave so much money back. he provide many magical computers it allowed us to edit so many magical things. I spent a few hours scouring the interwebs to find the funniest animations, or puppets, or whatever of Steve Jobs.


10. Steve Mobs - The Simpsons
Could the Simpsons be so scared of sue-happy Apple that they changed the name to MOBS?




9, Steve Jobs Cheats Death With The iPad
Of course if Steve Jobs was still alive this would be funnier, also if it wasn't so long... but the puppets rocked to I included it


8. Steve Jobs Save China Or Eats An Apple Or Something?
I'm not sure what in the Hell we're witnessing here but if you're into truly obscure adaptations of success stories, here you go.


7. Apple's iChick
Apple has you covered, well... almost. Which if they could take care of one more aspect of your life? Your social life.


6. Steve Jobs VS Bill Gates
What's it like to fight in the Apple Matrix? Bill Gates finds out



5. Steve Jobs' Minecraft Funeral If you live your life in Minecraft you don't always have time to go out and witness things, so somehims you just need to bring them to you.

 

4. Cat Vs. iPad
You really didn't expect me to leave out a cat video... did you?



3. How Steve Jobs Stole Christmas. 
This was a great concept that I think hasn't had enough eyes. Channeling some Dr. Seuss to show a little technology greed.


2. Steve Jobs Is Still Alive
The conspiracy theories are flying. But if you're wondering if Steve Jobs is still alive, my friend Brian from bbspot made this goodie.





1. iPod and Family Guy 
Sure, Steve Jobs isn't actually in this video but it has the Family Guy, Bill Gates, an iPod and it's just really funny.

The Three Stooges Trailer Has Finally Arrived. Is That A Good Thing?

You're either going to hate that they are remaking The Three Stooges, or you're REALLY going to hate it. Such iconic humor done so raspedly. Or so this trailer tells us.

I enjoy the Farrelly Brothers' films (to a point) and I can't argue that the actors' portrayals (Sean Hayes, Will Sasso, Chris Diamantopoulos) appears to be pretty dead on, but to attempt to place them in present day was probably not the best format for such a bold venture. Even more so to staple it to pop culture references like the iPhone (which probably will be around for a while) and Jersey Shore (which I pray daily will die in a fire) will only destroy any chance it having movie freshness down the road (much less its release date).

Listen, I don't want this to be bad. I grew up a huge fan of The Three Stooges. I've also been hearing hype about this movie for over 2 years so I have ginormous expectations and little tolerance for lazy film making. (This means you Adam Sandler). So please let this movie make me look stupid for my opinion. (I told someone Titanic looked lame... I still hear about it today.)

Not that I expect James Cameron presents The Three Stooges.

Back to the Future II takes place in 2015. Now if by chance the world doesn't end by then, it's only 3 years away. I don't see flying cars, I don't see hoverboards, I don't see the Cubs winning a World Series... and if Michael J. Fox doesn't start aging there's NO way he's going to look like this.

Pixar's New "Brave" Trailer

A friend was introducing his son to Toy Story the other day. I remember the first time I saw it and how amazed I was. I must have watched in 20 times in my life. Which might not seem too strange if I was a child when it was released, but I was (as close as I could be) a grown man. I can pride myself on retaining large amounts of my kidishness. Which then made me think "When is the next Pixar film being released dammit?". The other day I saw this. I'm giddy. 

I will have to be giddy a bit longer because Brave opens in US theatres June 22, 2012.

10 Jobs It's Okay To Have A Mustache

10. Porn Star
At one time a mustache was a requirement to work in the sex entertainment business. As lower area hair became less desirable, so did all hair everywhere. There are still those who wear the pornstache. I salute them. My inability to grow a good mustache was the only thing keeping me out of “the business.”



9. Cop
They are there to protect and serve, while looking manly as Hell. You can’t have a badge and a gun without donning that awesome authoritstache. If you eat as many doughnuts as these guys, you would really value that advantage of a flavor saver.



8. Princess Rescuer
Sure, you thought it would be a great accessory, but that was before you realized you were going to spend your days going from castle to castle saving a princess. You know you’ll never be able to shave it off now. Your razor is in another castle.



7. Movie Critic
All best best have them: Gene Shalit, Leonard Maltin, Joel Siegel. There is something about a really big and scary mustache that makes you have to watch movies by yourself and talk about them the next day to complete strangers. Shave it off, and perhaps someone just might go with you.



6. Karate Master
Your mustache is good, but my mustache is better. If you’re going to learn karate to avenge the death of your father, then you better be sure your master has a big ol’ mustache and an awesome leg sweep.



5. Carnie
Nothing hides bad oral hygiene like a gaggle of hair on your upper lip. If you can’t grow one to the carnival’s satisfaction, you can always glue one of those lame caterpillars they give away at the dart booth onto your lip. No one could tell the difference.



4. Pedophile
Perhaps this really isn’t a job. It’s more of a way of life. How else are you going to look nice for your mugshot and your profile in the sex offender database?
















3. Evil Villain
Ever try to be a bad guy without a mustache? No one takes you seriously. Just try to launch a missile or kidnap the President’s wife without a really awesome mustache. It just won’t work. An excellent Fu Manchu is the key to good villainy!



2. Ringmaster
Ladies and gentlemen! Check out my amazing mustache! There is no way you can command the crowd if you don’t have a powerful mustache. Anything less, is a county fair.



1. When You Work With Daryl Hall
You’d do it, you’d do it, you’d do it, you’d do it in a minute…. well, or for a few weeks depending on how long it would take for you to grow it.  It is amazing.  It is iconic.  Rock it!

10 Funniest Business Names

Many businesses fail in their first few years of operation. Why is it? Could it be location, marketing, product? What if it just came down to its name? Did you go the correct route in picking those letters that best represent what you do? Did you play the alphabet game where you start a business with an ‘A’ so you’re first to be seen in the phone book? These people decided to come up with some names even more fitting, either that or they just pulled names out of a hat. Here are the top 10 funniest business names.

10. STD Wines & Liquors – From what we learned in college, STDs usually happen AFTER drinking. If you look hard enough you’ll see this is located on Church Ave. Those dirty, drunk Christians!

 9. Pussy Cleaners – Daughter: “Hey Mom, sometimes I just don’t feel so fresh. What do you do?” Mother: “One hour martinizing my vagina dear!” I’d never trust a cleaners with my genitalia, plus I’d be afraid I’d lose the ticket.


8. Stiff Nipples Air Conditioning – This is a company that realizes JUST how cold your A/C should be. If you need someone even better call MASSIVE DICK SHRINKAGE REPAIR.


7. Rapex Contraction – Most contractors stick it to you with the bill, these guys get you in the estimate, twice. They are so dedicated you can see them practicing the rapage on each other.


 6. Kidsexchange – So you really wanted a boy? That okay, they have a huge selection of kids private parts which can have little Annie singing bass before you know it.



5. Fuk Mi Sushi – Their food is so good you’ll say their name over and over. We’re actually a little shocked that a Planning and Zoning commission would let this get by. Apparently they have even a better sense of humor than we do.



4. The Dirty Hoe – Ever wonder where your exgirlfriend is working? Now you know. The Dirty Hoe has everything you need for a nice garden, and herpes.


3. Sherrill’s Eat Here and Get Gas - No hidden disclaimers, these guy let you know up front that their food really isn’t going to agree with you. Bill and Ann, though excellent owners, don’t really cook for those with the sensitive stomachs.



2. The Master – Baiter Bait and Tackle – Being a fisherman and a ladies man don’t usually go hand in hand, it usually goes penis in hand. When you’re spending that much time alone you are going to have to take the time to take care of yourself. The Masterbaiter has everything you need for that time you’re grabbing your grouper.


 1. Big Dick’s Halfway INN Resort – This is a very optimistic resort, an pessimistic resort would have been called the Halfway OUT Resort. Are you just as curious as us what a minnow shot is?

Will Apple Put An End To Star Trek?


My good friend Ben Dickson and I constantly joke about how Apple patents are getting more and more ridiculous each day. We usually do it through our alter-ego twitter account HAL9000. Though I am a Mac fan boy, I see think some things go too far. Ben decided to show his love in a Star Trek video which he asked our friend Jimmy Wellington and myself to use our amazing voice talents in. Watch it, share it, live it.
