Video killed the internets star

The Chuck Norris facts sent around by Tricky Dick last week have been taking over the internets the past couple weeks. Here is Mr. McDonkerton’s personal favorite.
It was once believed that Chuck Norris actually lost a fight to a
pirate, but that is a lie, created by Chuck Norris himself to lure more
pirates to him. Pirates never were very smart.
Now we have confirmation that Norris read his own facts from his own website

And in even more awesome video news, we have Tony from “Who’s The Boss” reading the Chuck Norris facts out loud TO Chuck Norris... BRILLIANT

Best goal ever video.

With the Skins, Zards, Terps, and United all on my viewing schedule, I think I have filled my quota for local sports, but if this guy Ovechkin keeps doing amazing things like this GOAL, well then I might have to actually start peeking in on some Caps games again. Ovechkin appears to be the real deal, and seriously this is the most amazing hockey goal I have ever seen. You HAVE to watch the slow motion replays once the live action is finished to realize the nastiness that he pulled out --- The Big O dekes, crosses over, switches to his backhand, gets dragged down, moves the puck above his head, and with his back to the goal and the puck over his head while sliding, pushes a nice shot pass the goaltender - SICK.

You Tube is a great place for finding these videos. Ovechkin, Chuck Norris, and now this. With Donkies soccer #1 finishing undefeated in the regular season and facing Team Val in the playoffs, I found this video of Team Val practicing. It is the favorite move of their golatender.


Even more strange videos.

Fimoculous, one of the first blogs I ever became addicted to, points to this amazing performance involving the son of Mr. Seaver (growing pain’s Alan Thicke) and rapper Lil’ Wayne performing on the Leno show. A New York Times article has called this the next viral internet video phenomenon after the Chronic of Narnia

Fimoculous has also pointed me to this badass Klosterman article explaining the significance of the snowman shirts made famous by present cultural icon and role model, Young Jeezy.
Sadly, Rusche's words ring true: 100 percent of teenagers who wear these shirts are addicted to cocaine. Moreover, anyone wearing these shirts can (and will) sell you cocaine, assuming you address them with any of the following coded phrases:
a) "Chatter on the interweb suggests there shall be a little frost on the pumpkin this Halloween."
b) "I own the Eagles box set."
c) "Know what I hate? Eating food."
d) "So, are you the dude wearing the snowman T-shirt who is selling everybody cocaine?"
Im going to get a Buffalo Bills shirt tomorrow

Now google also has its own video purchasing site, with more fun content to load on my ipod. Just further proof that google will soon rule the world. Here is more proof, rooftop advertising explicitly designed so that it may be seen on google maps.


Finally in boring political news which most of my 5 readers skip at the end of thse posts -- It seems that the mean mean Democratic Senators made Sam ScAlito’s wife cry. Oh well, the whole country should have cried when he got nominated. Basically the guy wants to take away your rights if you are a woman, a brown person, or not a millionaire... which I believe covers every person I know.

Despite this, the media continues to cover the crying game, and I think Atrios said it best
Oh jeebus.
...I appreciate that Alito's wife may geuinely find this stressful and bummer for her, but I just can't stand the fact that our media which can't seem to understand that people who support groups which try to reduce women an minorities on campus, who rule in favor of warrantless searches of 10 year old girls, who will likely declare the uterus state property, who shoot down almost any racial discrimination claim, and who support the practice of striking jurors based on their race might cause a few tears as well.
The media keeps declaring these hearings to be just political theater, and then they focus on the soap opera.
This. Shit. Matters. Pretend you care, or get new goddamn jobs.

Great post. Trying to keep up with the whole ScAlito thing over here and it seems things aren't getting better.

Just watched Munich last night. Decent movie. Probably will get a lot more attention now that the whole Hammas things going down.
