This is a clip from one of the latest episodes of SouthPark called Over Logging. This episode was yet again hilarious. Check out the full episode here. Then report back to me on how they managed to fix THE INTERNET.
Good to see that someone has a sense of humor! How old will you be when WordPress 2.5 is released? I’ll be 46!
Thanks to Mark Lima, I’ve discovered the insanely humorous David Blaine Street Magic Spoof videos. A guy that pretends to be David Blaine wreaks havoc on two individuals that fall victim to more than just Davids magic. The spoofs are very well done and the reactions and language used within the videos is down-right hilarious. After watching the third episode, I had to go back and watch the first and second episodes because I couldn’t get enough. In fact, the first spoof video that was created has over Twelve million views on YouTube.
I bring to you the first installment of one of the best comedy series on YouTube.
I thought this was a well done video complete with sound effects and everything.
TETRIS played by real human-beings sitting in an auditorium: TETRIS is the 4th video performance of the GAME OVER Project, directed by the Swiss artist Guillaume REYMOND (NOTsoNOISY creative agency). This stop-motion video was shot and played for “LES URBAINES” festival www.urbaines.ch at the Palais de Rumine (Lausanne, Switzerland) on November 24th 2007. You can find also SPACE INVADERS, PONG and POLE POSITION on our website www.notsonoisy.com/gameover
Found this via my feed reader for a few RSS keyword subscriptions I have on YouTube. This is the first episode of TechSoup I’ve seen and I have to admit, it gave me a chuckle or two. The bit about search engine fatigue was pretty funny. Check out episode 5 of TechSoup.
Ever notice how a good conversation on a forum or blog will usually take a nose dive? What was once an informative exchange of information turns into a slug fest with expletives being tossed around left and right with someone usually being referred to as a nazi. I’ve learned that the term for this breakdown in communication is called ‘Godwin’s Law’.
Back in 1990, Mike Godwin of the EFF noted a feature of online discussion groups: As a thread gathered steam, members would start hurling insults and inevitably someone would be compared to Adolf Hitler. Hence Godwins Law. The longer an online conversation continues, the greater the possibility of a reference to Nazis. Usually at this point, the conversation is over.
Although this video doesn’t highlight the comparison to Adolf Hitler, it does a nice job of showing just how communication breaks down.
As I was listening to Leo Laporte on his Tech Guy radio show, I noticed how he tried to pronounce a variety of different Web 2.0 company names and in the end, he mentioned that it sounded like a bunch of baby talk. I have to admit, listening to Leo try to say the names of these companies was hilarious. That’s when I got the idea to feature a list of Web 2.0 companies who’s names are nothing short of googlymoogly.
Not only is it sometimes hard to pronounce these names, but after you figure them out, the question then becomes, what do they do? I’ve taken an excerpt from each companies About page, as they would be the ones to best explain what the heck their company does.

I found this image and site mentioned on TheGlobalGeekPodcast blog and thought it was so hilarious, that I would share it here as well. It’s interesting that I just read a blog post over at ChrisBrogan.com that discussed the overall feeling that social media was nothing but a waste of time. Then, I took a visit to Michael Baileys site and checked out his post, showing off his ability to disconnect himself from MySpace and Facebook.
I smell a battle of all battles brewing within the interwebs. Social vs AntiSocial. Wisdom of crowds vs Wisdom of one. A realization that, just by having an account on all of these services that appear to be a boon for companies is simply not enough. Although you try and try to garner friendships online, nothing compares to a real-world friendship/relationship. Using Twitter and other social outlets becomes a fruitless attempt of being heard as you find out no one is listening because your’re seemingly not important enough.
Let me know what you think.
I thought this video was pretty funny. How many of you agree with what Bill says? By the way, the nerd tax bit was hilarious.
This video clip is hilarious.
