Two days into October and it’s still almost 100 freaking degrees, so hopefully this is the late time we have to haul out Mr. Blazing Sun Icon this year … but I doubt it is …
Dane Cook hosted SNL this past weekend, and, in his monologue, he did his joke about how YouTube has videos for EVERYTHING: He said that if you go to the search box and just punch the keyboard — for instance, it comes up “A:F6″ — then click search, YouTube will come up with videos for that, “Some kid going, ‘A-Colon-F-Six! A-Colon-F-Six! ‘”
As it turned out, his joke was a self-fulfilling prophecy: There are now dozens of videos that people have done with A:F6 as the theme (and lots more that lazy jackasses have stuck the A:F6 title and tag on existing videos, but that’s to be expected).
This kind of thing has become the interactive culture of our time — as I got to discover first-hand in July, when I directed my co-workers in an entry for NBC’s “The Office” video promo contest. Any idea that get national exposure can be participated in by anyone.
And sometimes that can be a good thing.
They’ve decided who’s going to play Iron Man in the new movie: Robert Downey, Jr.
Umm … okay …
In the 80s, Marvel made Tony Stark (the guy inside the Iron Man suit) an alcoholic, to generate more character development.
Mabye in the movie they’ll make him a junkie.
Check this out: HD Uglies, a list of the people who look the worst in Hi-Def.
There were some surprises (Teri Hatcher, Ray Liotta)
ans some you’d expect (Rosie O’Donnell, Howard Stern, Mick Jagger).
What, no Kenny Rogers? Probably just because you don’t see him that much these days.
But what about the Gargoyle Brigade? Susan Sarandon, Allison Janney, Pattricia Wettig, and Christina Ricci? Those ladies could startle a goat at 50 yards; is the article implying that they’re no worse in Hi-Def?
And how can they have Ray Liotta and not Edward James Olmos? He’s right there on Battlestar Galactica, frightening little children every week.
Fortunately, you can cleanse your mental pallette with the list of HD Honeys.
And notice that this is the second list that Johansson has topped in the past week.
This is going to go to her head, you just wait.
