SportsCenter Short: Talking Only Through Twitter

Hilarious video of someone who chooses to communicate only through Twitter for one day. I get the feeling that it would only work out like this if you were famous.

Crackers: 1984 Movie about the Mission District in SF

Despite the lineup (Donald Sutherland & Sean Penn among others) this was borderline unbearable were it not for the fact that I recognized a few of the places and was able to find many of them using streetview. That said, it has everything you would want from an 80's movie based in the Mission district: hookers, voyerism, and Sean Penn with a ridiculously unexplainable southern accent.

90% of the movie takes place at 24th & Alabama

(note the fresh fruit fruit market is still next door)

Dominguez Bakery makes an appearance at 14:30 and is still around.

I wouldn't recommend trying to watch this whole thing. It was pretty painful. That said, if you can tolerate it, there are great moments of 1980's hilarity.

Reporter blows serious chunks on TV

I couldn't help but watch this over and over. You knew it was coming from the title of this post, and yet you'll watch it anyway.

And then you'll watch it again to make sure it wasn't faked. And then once more for good measure. You sick bastard.

All Ants are Chinese

At least that's what I concluded from this awesome video. All this talk about collective wills and Chinese walls. Freakin' commie ants.

Either that, or ants are martians. Their structures look like the cover of every 1940's pulp sci fi book I own, which is embarassingly many.

Come back, daddy! Where are you going?

Another great post by My First Dictionary.

Luigi is tired of standing in Mario's shadow

I know how you feel, man. I've got an older brother, too. My response was also to take mushrooms.

Seriously though, I have no idea what's going on in Super Smash Bros. either.

Pygmy Jerboas are surreal

I thought this was CGI'd, but no, according to wikipedia, the all knowing all seeing open source god, says they're real.

When nerds want to get high

These guys are maniacs!

These party animals should've been around when my high school friends were buying a case of whippets just for themselves for no other reason than it was a Wednesday night.
