Great picture. Caught in a very vulnerable moment. It's easy to get caught up in the story and the speeches, but when it comes down to it he's just one man. As fragile as any other human.

"Huddled for warmth, macaques press their bodies into a vast ball of fur. The monkeys' relaxed social hierarchy allows high- and low-ranking individuals to share the same tight space."

Look at that he's swinging with Spidey!! Apparently he's going to appear in "Amazing Spider Man #573" where he is a presidential candidate. Furthermore you can follow Colbert's Marvel world presidential campaign over at his website here. In it you can read about Colbert's stance on the Skrull secret invasion.
What a lucky bastard, think about it he gets to go on TV and talk crap about the political system while playing some outrageous character, he gets to interview pretty interesting people, he gets awesome paintings of him done...AND ge gets money for it! Seriously when I grow up I want to be a sort of Stephen Colbert character. As a matter of fact I will be...so give me money now.

Simply put this is great story telling. However this is a story that is made greater through the use of animation, there is some truly stunning imagery throughout this whole short that would not have worked in any other medium. Just another example of why I love animation so much, watch it till the end. If you're not moved, you are not human.

If you've ever asked yourself...what's the worst thing I could eat that's sold at a local "Family Dollar" then I have the answer...BEHOLD
PRINGLES EXTREME in Dill Pickle flavor...WHAT. THE. CRAP! Don't ever ever ever try these, I did it out of curiosity and it was the worst idea of my life(next to trying to build a flying toilet car) From the moment it touched my tongue you get this nasty shot of pickle flavor tormenting your tastebuds, I don't know what chemical they used to get these things to taste like that but I'm pretty sure it's anthrax. Trust me don't have them, they will kill you.

Windows recently scrapped the whole Seinfeld campaign and started to go on the offensive against the whole "Hello I'm a Mac" ads from Windows, and they're pretty cool. Check one of them out...
Pretty cool, I guess....some weird things though, Pharell comes out in the ads when he's been very vocal about using Macs as his workstation and according to Webmonkey some parts of the ad was even MADE on Macs...so yeah, cool ad but the fact is Macs have become sort of the "in" thing with the "creative" community meaning, musicians, artists, graphic designers etc....I'm a programmer so I could go either way...where's the I'm Linux ads?(I'm Ubuntu would be better)

You may have recently heard about how some people from the group Anonymous hacked into Palin's email. Well it turns out somebody hacked into Barack's email account, what was found was truly astonishing. Check out the screen cap below.
Haha, you can click on it to make it bigger....but that's obviously not his real inbox haha, it's the work of those geniuses over at The Onion. Good stuff though. Barry Obama hahaha.

I first got introduced to this man in the early nineties when my mom had a crush on him, since then he's gone on to say some of the funniest crap any basketball player has ever said. Here's some proof below these are all HIS quotes, no lying here.
"I can be bought. If they paid me enough, I'd work for the Klan."
"You got to believe in yourself. Hell, I believe I'm the best-looking guy in the world and I might be right."
"I don't hate anyone, at least not for more than 48 minutes, barring overtime."
Some sports Guy: "Auburn is a pretty good school. To graduate from there I suppose you really need to work hard and put forth maximum effort."
Charles: "20 pts and 10 rebounds will get you through also!"
Kenny: "There's guys who go over to Europe and play overseas from America, and they dominate!"
Charles: "Those are called 'brothers'
Charles Barkley on his thoughts about retiring before the season: "I remember sitting down with the Rockets and saying, 'Yeah. I'm going to retire.' They said, 'Well, we'll give you $9 million.' And I said, 'You got a pen on you?'"
"Man, everything gets blamed on the Clintons, every single thing in this world. I think Bill Clinton shot JFK, too."
Charles Barkley after seeing a picture of Sam Cassell on the screen: "Phone home."
On North Carolina missing 22 of its last 23 shots in losing to Georgetown in the NCAA tournament last weekend: "Stevie Wonder could make one of 23 shots."
"I'd never buy my girl a watch... she's already got a clock over the stove."
"I always laugh when people ask me about rebounding techniques. I've got a technique. It's called just go get the damn ball."
After an Olympic Dream Team victory over Angola, in which they won 116-48, Charles got into a physical altercation with a member of Angola towards the end of the game, afterwards he says: "Somebody hits me, I'm going to hit him back. Even if it does look like he hasn't eaten in a couple weeks. I thought he was going to pull a spear on me."
HAHAHA Those last two are just so wrong!....But someone said it while the rest of us were just thinking it...right?

In today's Penny Arcade newspost Tycho says the following about Microsoft:
"If we are to observe the problem in its totality, I recognize that trying to make Vista seem like anything more than a modern Judas Cradle is a tremendous challenge. This is part of why I am, in general, impressed with what they've managed to accomplish with the 360. Trying to associate Microsoft with "fun" is like trying to associate Satan with aromatherapy."
Wow...hahaha, It's this kind of "wordsmith-ery" that makes Tycho or, Jerry Holkins one of the best commentators on videogame related culture.

Here's a couple of videos I've been getting my entertainment from recently, they may not be new but they're entertaining.
HOW CAN SHE SLAP?! then later on...*crying* how can she slap me sir, how can she slap me? CLASSIC...honestly though, if you slap some stranger it should be fair game to get slapped back.
BAM! Talk about getting trucked...I've idolized Laron Landry for being a beast but trying to go high on Brandon Jacobs is just RIDICULOUS so he got what was coming.
Ahhhh baby videos what would youtube be like without them?? Nothing that's why. Anyway, this particular one stands out because of the baby's reaction of "That's not funny! It's blood!" hahahaha clearly showing how he hasn't been desensitized to blood by those awful awful videogames.
Finally some classic music, hahaha the overalls are the peak of fashionable.
K, that's it for now...I gotta go watch some more college football
