Online overkill – week of April 6

April 11, 2009

Good, bad, unnerving and tragic, these are some of the topics that made frequent appearances in my RSS feed this week.

The Palin family circus. File under: stories that should be left to the tabloids and Jerry Springer.

Nick Adenhart. The Angels pitcher and three others were killed by a drunk driver in an accident shortly after the rookie pitched six shutout innings. Utterly senseless and sympathetically commented on in just about every corner of the Web I frequent this week.

Everybody poops trailer. A clever take on the massively popular trailer for a real film adaptation of a popular children’s book. I don’t know about you, but it hasn’t gotten old for me yet.

Billy Bob’s Interview. There’s really only one word to describe this: asshole.

Arrgh. Like I’ve said before: non-Disney pirates really aren’t very cool.

The latest from Mike Judge (Beavis and Butthead, Office Space, Idiocracy).

Fresh off the smashing success of the Spike Jonze-directed Where The Wild Things Are trailer comes another trailer of a Spike Jonze-directed film based on a popular children’s book.

Online overkill – week of March 30

April 4, 2009

Good, bad, annoying or overhyped, these are the items that set my RSS reader on fire this week.

John Calipari. Living in Kentucky, you’d think a different JC had shown up this week to replace the Messiah from two years ago who was tarred, feathered and run out of town by the most obnoxious college basketball fans in America.

Lance Stephenson. Haven’t you heard? He’s born ready. For way too much media hype. This New Republic article cuts through a lot of the crap.

Glenn Beck admits he’s wrong. Whatever. What are Rush and Sean up to these days?

C Me Dance trailer. Boy, does this movie look awesome or what? I stayed away the first five times it popped up in my RSS feed, but I sure am glad I finally took the time to watch it.

Sarah Palin calling for a Senate re-election. As annoying as the liberal hatred of her can be, she deserves it for advocating that a guy she previously said should drop out of the race get a do-over in a race he lost fair and square.  An blog appropriately called the move a “new frontier in sore loserdom.”

The hug heard round the world. The first-lady hugged the Queen of England.  Awesome. I hug my wife every day when I get home from work.

Praise Band trailer

Wow. This. Is. Amazing.

“Pretty cool. We gotta Matt, we got a Mark, gotta Luke. Now, all we need is a John.”

If Atheists Ruled the World

March 31, 2009

This is a dramatic reading of comments from so-called “online Christian fundamentalist forums” – whatever that means. Whether they are actual comments from non-trolls or not, they sum up pretty well the worst of the worst in online forum commentary.

That said, I’m sure an If Christians Ruled the World version of selectively plucked comments from humanistic atheist forums – whatever that means – would be pretty darn amusing as well.
