Exposé: James Scott Farrin Commercials

19 03 2011

If you live in the research triangle than you’ve probably heard of our very own intense personal injury law office, James Scott Farrin. They are most famous for their commercials. If you know what I’m talking about, then this video might weird you out:

That’s right, same guy, but different law firm! Apparently the actor Robert Vaughn not only plays James Scott Farrin and the other bizarro versions of it, he was also the villain in the movie Superman III:

Take a look at his long and varied IMDB page. with everything from MatchGame to FDR.

Cookie Monster Auditions for SNL

3 12 2010

Everybody’s favorite Sesame Street character tries to achieve every comedian’s dream. I’m pretty sure this is a real viral marketing strategy to get a monster to host. You can join the Facebook group now!As strange as this is, is it really more unusual than the successful Facebook campaign to get Betty White to host? Here’s his hilarious audition tape:

Let me be the first to say there’s always a space on the DSI stage for Mister Cookie.

Looking at Audio Visually

20 10 2010

Keeping with the the music theme, have you ever listened to a song and felt that it was just the same lyrics over and over? Sometimes it works (Let it be) and sometimes it doesn’t (Who Let The Dogs Out). Just this month Will Smith’s daughter, nine  year old Willow Smith, came out with her single, Whip Your Hair. Here’s what it sounds like and thanks to Wordle, here’s what it looks like:

The Snooki Snooker

26 08 2010
I posted a while back on Snooki’s tweetversation with John McCain. But perhaps Mr. McCain should rethink who he follows:
Allegedly, the anxious folks at these various luxury houses are all aggressively gifting our gal Snookums with free bags. No surprise, right? But here’s the shocker: They are not sending her their own bags. They are sending her each other’s bags! Competitors’ bags!
Call it what you will — “preemptive product placement”? “unbranding”? — either way, it’s brilliant, and it makes total sense. As much as one might adore Miss Snickerdoodle, her ability to inspire dress-alikes among her fans is questionable. The bottom line? Nobody in fashion wants to co-brand with Snooki.
Hat tip to Tyler Cowen.




Unlikely Twitter Connections

10 06 2010

For over 200 years banter between politicians and celebrities has been scarce and private. But no longer. Now we get to see their all important interactions. Recently Snookie from Jersey Shore mentioned that because of the tanning bed tax from Obama’s health care bill, she was going to switch to spray tans. She expressed her regret about not voting for John McCain, who was apparently the pro-tan candidate. Then this was put on Twitter by none other than the two time former presidential candidate, and MTV watcher, John McCain:

@Sn00ki u r right, I would never tax your tanning bed! Pres Obama’s tax/spend policy is quite The Situation. but I do rec wearing sunscreen!

Although his dislike of the health care bill may be the act of  a politician, his suggestion of sunscreen was all grandfather.

The FINAL Spicy Countdown

18 05 2010

It’s about cowdamn time people!

On June 7th Chick-fil-A will debut THE Spicy Chicken Sandwich!

I can’t tell you what a game changer this is for me and my culinary adventures.

You see, I love spicy chicken.

Wendy’s has long since led the charge in delivering fiery fowl, and Dave Thomas (from the grave) even condensed the miracle into tiny nugget form. Many a bar & grill adds the peppery poultry to their menu. Heck, even the company where I work has Wednesday buffalo chicken day and NO. OTHER. DAY. When you think about it, the fact that Chick-fil-A hasn’t had a spicy version of their sandwich is quite mind-boggling.  I wouldn’t the R&D Department would have taken THIS LONG to hatch this scheme (HATCH! pun intended, what came first? the egg or the Spicy Chicken Sandwich!). There are really only so many things that can be done to chicken, right?

I mean, you can shake ‘n bake it, you can cordon bleu it, you could use it as bread (Thanks KFC!) but I really feel going spicy is the next logical step.

So join my fellow heartburn heroes as we watch the clock on Chickfila.com while we wait for this Spicy Chicken gift, direct from the Cathy family. If you can’t wait until the official release date, go here (But you don’t know me. Are we clear?)

Man vs. Snow

16 02 2010

As the east coast is covered in the largest snow storm in a century, it’s been hard, even for teddy bears. While some are making snowmen, most are having to shovel their driveway just to get their car out. And unless you can turn your car into a snow tank, that means a lot of hard labor. That is, until now! Here are the top three ways to get rid of snow:

1) The Robotic Snowplow that Poops Bricks:

I call it the snowbot

2) Aluminum:

stab some aluminum strips into the heart of the larger piles. Aluminum is an excellent heat conductor and is available in a number of forms at the local hardware store. If I can find some cheap strips (preferably black), I can essentially conduct heat into the heart of the pile.

3) Snow Melting Dragon:
