Chimpanzee Riding on a Segway

The following video of a chimpanzee riding on a segway set to an annoyingly catchy pop song is a tiny glimpse into the utter insanity that lies at the heart of the internet. Also, has anyone ever actually ridden a Segway? I've always wanted to ever since I got really into Arrested Development. If only I knew where to rent one and a giant banana costume.

Snuggie Pub Crawl

This story about a NYC Snuggie Pub Crawl has made the rounds with me and my high
school/middle girlfriends via Facebook thread this week. I'm pretty sure they're planning a trip to NYC to do actually participate...and I'd so go if I had any money--but perhaps David can go and live blog for us.

Anyway, I wanted to share it on Pop Cultured to highlight how this stupid invention, and silly commercial have inched their way into popular culture. I don't go a day without hearing something about the Snuggie, which makes me question my circle(s) of friends. That being said, I do have to mention that my sister and I recently purchased 2 of these things for my Brother and his future wife for their "around the house" wedding shower...I hope Elizabeth isn't reading today, otherwise I just ruined the surprise factor. Also, this is a picture message (hence the poor quality) sent to me of my friend Katherine Modeling the Snuggie, kind of like Jesus would.

Dollhouse, My Thoughts.

So the much anticipated premier of Dollhouse has come and has passed, and as a Whedonite/amateur pop culture blogger, my opinion of the show has been asked on several occasions in the past few days. Though my love for Joss has always trumped my hate for Dushku, I was initially skeptical when I heard about the show. So I was pleasantly surprised when I enjoyed the show as much as I did--I had high hopes and I wasn’t disappointed, which is saying something…

The first 2 or 3 minutes scared me, when we saw “Echo” basically acting like Faith the Vampire Slayer. It is well known that I HATE Faith, she annoys me to no end, and the thought of having to deal with her again kind of frightened me. BUT the show flashed to an actual storyline/engagement that looked kind of fun, and showcased some of the variety that we might look forward to in future episodes (God willing).

The episode not only focused on the weekly engagement, but also introduced us to some of the season/series long arcs. The FBI investigation looks like it will provide plenty of fun drama, if not plenty of strange boxing flashbacks. Amy Acker’s small part as a scarred up doctor will no doubt be amazing—I do hope, however, that she doesn’t somehow become an active, only to have her mind imprinted with a blue demon goddess, though that might be kinda neat, I digress…

Anyway, I really think this show has great potential for an interesting assortment of episodes, so I’m looking forward to seeing where it goes. And I’m hoping FOX doesn’t eff it up.

Song that I legitmately like from FOTC

I generally like the songs on Flight of the Conchords, but I haven't connected to any of the music in the second season like I did with the first season. That being said, I really like the song, "Carol Brown" from last nights episode. I don't write about music very well, so I couldn't say why I like it, other than the fact that it's catchy and clever. It's no Business Time, but it makes me smile:

U R SO GHEY: FIRST!!!11!!1 Post Edition

Noted pop-culture anthropologist and one-man Gay Pride Parade Benjamin Horner is trying to understand what makes in the Internet so gay to the majority of its users; thus he's begun a project on Pop Cultured in which you (our lovely readers) can submit Internet anythings and Benjamin will analyze it with his flawless Homoness Richter Scale (the HRS, for short). For example, a few litmus tests:

Gus, The World's Ugliest Dog:

*beep boop beep boop*

The HRS says: 0. There is nothing gay about this "dog" (swamp monster). If anything, Gus will make you never think sexual thoughts again regardless of your orientation. If anything, I'm sorry that I've just given you a thousand nights of erotic nightmares. No wait. I'm not.

Now, for the opposite end of the spectrum, let's test Chris Crocker's dramatic request to the world that we just leave Britney alone:

*beep boop beep boop*

The HRS says: 11. Ruh-roh. I broke my Homoness Richter Scale. Sometimes things are just to gay to be trapped in a sliding scale of 1-10. Incidentally, this video is also a 11 on the awful scale. But you probably already knew that.

Let me go build another another HRS, and let's try this again.

Meatloaf's "I Would Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That)" music video, extended cut:

*beep boop beep boop*

The HRS says: 8. Can you blame it? If it were much gayer, it'd poop rainbows and unicorns. As is, this video poops body glitter and 12-minute house remixes of Madonna songs. Sure, there's butch things like motorcycles (gay) and cops (double-gay!), but Meatloaf's weird fingernails are perched on fingers that sit on a hand that relies on a really limp wrist. Also, magical sliding chairs are w0rld-known as gay. They're part of our gay agenda (agenda item 32: decorate every house with a magical sliding chair). And let's not forget the random singing woman's outfit (though, please, can we? there's just so much boob under so little fabric): she's dressed like some tranny stripper angel. On a floating chaise. That's Gay. Case CLOSED.

Meatloaf, the food:

*beep boop beep boop*

The HRS says: 4. There's nothing particularly gay about actual meat loaf except that it has a whole lot of meet in it. Just like half of Chelsea on a Saturday night. HAR DIDDLY HAR HAR!!! I'm the Queen of Jokes. I'll be here all week. Try the veal.

And thus concludes our first day of experimentation. Please feel free to make suggestions for future Homoness Richter Scale tests in the comments.

Bill O'Reilly vs. Christian Bale

This remix pits Christian Bale's freakout against my favorite celebrity meltdown, Bill O'Reilly and his "Fuck it! We'll do it live." Needless to say this well crafted little bit of viral video insanity is NSFW.

I like to imagine that there was some sort of a rift in the space time continuum and they really were arguing with one another and this video just really gets to the truth of that matter.

Laura's response: "Is it bad that that whole rant just makes me love Christian Bale even more?"

And The Nominees Are...

It's time to vote for the best picture of the year! Thirty three people participated in our nominating process, designed to mimic the Academy's crazy system, and the results are finally in. I think the nominees largely mimic the intentions of the voters, though that is largely the result of a few last minute ballots which balanced out the nominees. 

Before I get to the results, here are the Top 10 films, using a point system similar to the AP poll.

10. Man on Wire
8. Frost/Nixon
7. In Bruges 
6. The Wrestler
5. Slumdog Millionaire 
4. Iron Man
3. Milk
2. Wall-E
1. The Dark Knight 

The Pop Cultured Best Picture of 2008 nominees after the jump! 

The Wrestler


The Dark Knight

Slumdog Millionaire


Four people who nominated films have none of their nominees nominated. While Frost/Nixon won a round of the nomination process it couldn't be included on the nominees list because it was not the first place selection for any of the voters. Also, until the final 2 votes came in JCVD occupied the slot currently held by Slumdog Millionaire. 

Send votes to You can only vote for one film and all votes are due by the end of the day on Tuesday, February 10. Those who did not participate in the nominating process are allowed to vote, so encourage your friends.

David's 25 Things

Since everyone else was doing it.. I figured it'd be an interesting exercise. It was certainly long. That'swhatshesaid.

1. I'm an extremely passionate advocate for atheism and secular humanism. I believe strongly in the power of reason and in the potential for a secular, moral, ethical, and just society. I reject any and all claims based on supernatural or religious explanation and think that such ideas are dangerous. Most of the people I'm close with are religious, though, so I don't talk about this much. Though if you ever want to, I'm more than willing.

2. I like to think I'm not a picky eater. With that said I hate bacon and all pork products. I'm allergic to apples, celery, carrots, and pineapple. Also I'm REALLY lactose intolerant despite cheese being my favorite thing to eat ever.

3. For my entire life I have very sincerely wanted to be a super hero. I would have told at least 100 people my secret identity by now though.

4. Sometimes I worry that I’m too mean but I express affection for the people I’m closest with by picking on them and I don’t see that changing anytime soon.

5. If a movie is supposed to make people cry... it makes me bawl like a fucking baby. The worst instance of this is after I saw the movie Big Fish and ended up sobbing in the men's bathroom at the movie theater for like 10 minutes. I won't cry though if I think people are looking.

6. Once a month I consider becoming vegan, thinking that future generations will likely look back on the way we treat animals as barbaric and disgusting. I've always admired people who throughout history have taken a stand for the rights of others and moved civilization forward and I like to think that given the opportunity I would be one of them, Sadly I always decide that until there are delicious meat substitutes available everywhere I'm not doing it. Hopefully someone will invent perfect faux steak and eggs before I die. I also think the people at PETA are total dicks.

7. I'm long-winded.

8. I'm pretty sure when I grow up I'm going to be Lucille Bluth.

9. I suffered terrible neglect as a child and on more than one occasion I've noticed that I suffer all the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, including flashbacks/nightmares, anger, anxiety, hyper-vigilance, and avoidance of stimuli associated with one's trauma. I sometimes worry that my childhood has, for worse, set the direction of who I am. Though I worry about this less and less. On a not-unrelated note, my mother's ringtone used to be "Witchy Woman" and is now No Doubt's "Spiderwebs."

10. I've given the matter a great deal of thought and I'm certain the world didn't exist before the internet and we're all just confused about that. This is undoubtedly similar to the way that the people on Battlestar Galactica seem to think they invented the Cylons within the last 100 years while they've actually been around for millennia.

11. As is true with many great loves, I can’t stand New York City half of the time.

12. I’m a member of the ACLU, the NAACP, the Human Rights Campaign, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Paley Center for Media.

13. I’m deeply grateful for my friends. There are many of you that I truly consider family. Sadly I suck at calling people regularly as I’m often VERY awkward on the phone.

14. Laura, Rebecca, Kenny, Woodie, Leland, Julie, and David Axe in particular, have had a huge impact on shaping me into the person that I am. A lot of what I like best about myself comes from them.

15. When I was in middle school I used to take part in weekly, online Star Trek role-playing games. I even had a little communicator pin that I would sometimes wear on my shirt during this. To this day I wonder how I lost my virginity in High School.

16. I prefer salty drinks to sweet ones. My favorites are Dirty Vodka Martinis and Salty Dogs. Though yesterday I found Firefly Sweet Tea vodka at a store in midtown and subsequently died of happiness.

17. Meeting Steve is, hands down, the best thing that's ever happened to me. I feel like every year we grow closer together. I'm so proud to be with him and I can't wait to raise a family with him.

18. Meeting Steve was not an accident, as I thought he was cute when I worked the desk at his dorm and stalked him online. When he caught me I managed to convince him I didn't know who he was or how his name was on my Buddy List. I can't remember how long it was before I told him this but he found it amusing by then and not REALLY creepy.

19. I love trivia and board games and when I play them I’m competitive to an unhealthy degree. I particularly love the game Risk, but no one ever wants to play it with me. I also have a theory that everyone in the world gets together without me to play the game Apples to Apples as everyone I know has played it and I’ve never had the chance.

20. My ultimate gaming dream is to have a weekend-long, 39-hour game of Survivor with 15 of my friends. This WILL happen.

21. I’m particularly adept with computers and I really enjoy learning about science but never once considered majoring in anything that would make it easy for me to find a job. I can’t decide if that was a mistake or not.

22. I try to make it a policy not to hate anyone, but my landlord in Harlem was probably the worst person ever and it’s REALLY satisfying to hate him, even 2 years after I last saw him.

23. My most prominent memory from elementary school is of a friend of mine asking me to go sharpen his pencil for him because it broke after he had accidentally wet himself at his desk. I don’t think I will ever forget how mortified for him I was.

24. If I ever get a tattoo it will either be an argyle band around my ankle (like a permanent sock) or the Sigils of the Endless from The Sandman series.

25. Part of me secretly hopes for a Zombie Apocalypse because I think I’d be GREAT at leading a civilization under siege by the undead. I dream about this almost weekly.

26. I didn't realized this was going to be so effing long. I can talk about myself forever. As evidence... I even added a 26th thing about me.

25 things...most of them are pop culturey

Since I’ve been tagged several times in the infamous 25 things note on Facebook, I decided to do one of these things, and just put it on the blog… Great news for everyone that wants to know more about me!!

1. I have no idea how I’m perceived by other people, but I wonder about it all the time. It’s a strange and weird obsession of mine.

2. When people ask me what my favorite movie is, I usually say Ghostbusters

3. I lived in Harlem for a year and thus far, it was probably the most defining year of my life

4. I was really conservative my freshman year of college. I’ve moved all the way to “moderate.”

5. Talking about politics makes me physically uncomfortable.

The Rest after the jump!

6. I take my friendships very seriously, and I love staying in touch with people, but I hate talking on the phone. Thank God for text messages, instant messaging, email, and Facebook.

7. My parents live in the same house I grew up in, since they’ve been married, they’ve never moved.

8. I hate it when TV shows and movies make the Greek system out to be evil. It pisses me off to no end.

9. I hate it when people that don’t know any sorority or fraternity members judge them because they are in a sorority or fraternity.

10. I know all of the words to the Carolina fight song.

11. I went backpacking through Europe with my brother and sister in the summer of 2005.

12. I hate waking up in the morning…I like to stay in bed as long as possible, even though it often means I end up inconveniencing myself.

13. I hate shopping for clothes. I like having them, but dressing rooms, etc, so boring. I do love buying movies though.

14. I have a VERY particular order to my DVD collection.

15. I’m extremely fidgety, I can’t wear nail polish without peeling it off, and beer bottles often end up bare because of me.

16. I have a pretty bad learning disability, and it wasn’t until college that I really started managing it successfully.

17. I procrastinate like nobody’s biznass. I often don’t start things until the night before they are due. This was much easier to get away with in undergrad.

18. I pride myself on my air drumming skills.

19. I watch the Westminster Dog show religiously every year.

20. I do not go to Church, but I’m a big fan of JC and God.

21. I get really excited and giddy when I see a trailer for a movie I’ve been wanting to see.

22. I love watching golf on television.

23. My perfect Sundays entail watching TV on DVD all day.

24. I consider myself an extremely lucky person and I try not to take any of my blessings for granted, but I know I do.

25. I like salt on grapefruit.

Total Eclipse of the Heart

So I ended up at the following video on YouTube by means of a chain of videos so embarrassing that I refuse to post it. This song ALWAYS makes me think of/miss Rebecca. So, here's to you, Soul Glo! This video is an astounding work of art. It would only be improved by somehow being painted on black velvet.

Together we can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time
I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark
We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
I really need you tonight

Give Michael Phelps a break...come on...

So I'm reading this RIDICULOUS story about Michael Phelps getting caught praising the green Jesus... it's only of interest to me is because it happened in Columbia, and my favorite bar from undergrad, Pavlov's, was mentioned. Also, I remember Jordan Matthews from Sorority Rush...she didn't go ADPi :(.

ANYWAY, I've been reading the comments on this story (always a mistake), and I just can't believe the stupidity and naivete of some of the world's inhabitants. JC, the guy just spent YEARS working harder than anyone could rightly imagine, and became the greatest Olympian of all time, let the boy have some fun.

Also, when you read this story, you can only imagine the guy that leaked this picture...I think his girlfriend may well have been one of the girls "hanging all over" Phelps. What an Ass.
