Paul Helmke on the Colbert Report

Did anyone see our former former mayor on The Colbert Report last Tuesday? I did not. But he's now a lobbyist in DC, and Stephen Colbert interviewed him. It was pretty hilarious:

remember our friend Fredin??

HE'S A FREAKING DAD! Kellie had their baby - and now instead of being 2, they're 3. :) we should all email him or call him separately and wish him tidings of baby joy.

a little baby boy named Liam. how nice.

Unicorn Planet

You guys are familiar with Unicorn Planet, right? If not, here are all the episodes. They are hysterical. And bizarre.

And finally, the last one, but I'm not entirely convinced it is made by the original creators:

Okay, one more.

This is the coolest house. Ever.

Reboot, a concept home designed by Philly native Victor Vetterlein, is literally a Gundam house — like the giant robot armor from anime, it responds to commands and looks like a giant creature with a glowing eye. It's wired so that you can voice command it to do things like turn on the AC, dim the lights, bust out some dance music, or play a movie. Your laptop or cell phone serve as your cockpit—you can navigate it wirelessly from wherever.

Yay! Thanks for the invite! I feel like I'm part of the social elite now.

Well, I want to pull my weight, so here are the great links of the day that I've run across:

This guy created some mini 5x7 posters with saying featuring Mac commands. I think most, if not all of you have Macs, so I think you'll appreciate this:

just kidding or just k'ing as someone else would say

okay okay okay. i got swept away in a tizzy of awesome words the other day (on NPR). i decided i wanted to see speed racer - and then this morning i decided that i didn't.

bad bad bad bad bad bad reviews. 36 on metacritic :(, 1.5 stars in People magazine... blah blah blah.

however, i know that i'm known to like sub-par, but entertaining movies -- for instance, i really like 27 Dresses which accumulated a 47 on metacritic -- i just can't help it.

but, since i was iffy before the NPR snippet, i'm going back to being decidedly against Speed Racer.

and i do feel badly about this.

You would be better off eating week old trash from a McDonalds dumpster than eating there, and they use genetically modified food, which is still untested and unsafe....

this goes out as a warning to everyone, Stay out of Jimmy Johns if you dont want to eat trash.....
