5 Things I Love for Friday #67

Posted: April 27th, 2007 | Author: Brian | Filed under: 5 Things I Love for Friday | Comments Off

I’m feeling slightly less than perky this morning, and I think it has to do with the fact that God is smiting me for eating something more interesting than ricecakes for once in my life. So here I sit, contemplating removing my stomach with this dull butter knife. Ack…

  1. Poodlums – How much more hilarious can you get? I don’t even know what the HELL this animal is…is it a sheep? A poodle? It looks like something we could have come up with around Halloween time as kids using a ball of yarn, the dog and some pillows. Whatever it is, it has to be the funniest thing I’ve seen all week, thus making into this edition of FTILFF.
  2. MTV’s redesign. Again. – MTV redesigned a few months back, and I was significantly underwhelmed. While I think the company has become a joke in terms of being the cultural leader it once was, I look to the site now to see what technologies they’re employing for the younger generational audience. Originially they launched with auto-playing videos, a clunky interface and lots of glitz. Sound like this “step backwards” is really a step in the right direction. Hooray for humility and hindsight!
  3. Ant colony ’sculptures’ – Allow me to dork-out for one second. These researchers poured wax into ant colonies to extract what shapes they form underground. That’s wicked awesome. But what I want to know is 1) were the ants still there? and 2) how did you get those big ol’ things out of the ground without breaking them? My clumsy ass would have botched it completely.
  4. Tricking your appliances into working – We have a love/hate relationship with our HVAC system. Having already had our airconditioner break last summer and the heater break this past winter, it should come as no surprise to us that the AC would go kaput again. But I found a random sequence of button pushing that seems to unfailingly kick it on every time. Suck it HVAC repair man!
  5. A drunk man rides his horse into a bank… – …and then passes out. I’m not kidding. That picture is worth a mint. Because really? If you’re going to humiliate yourself internationally, why not do it with flare? (and a farm animal)

Hope everyone has a good day. I’m going to look up Montezuma’s Revenge on Wikipedia to see if that’s what I have. Or maybe it’s shingles. Then I’ll check my work email like a loser. Bah.
