The Fall of the ‘Barbie Bandits’

Had all gone as planned, 19-year-old Heather Johnston of Atlanta would have just completed her first year in college. Instead, she is praying for a second chance and hoping she won’t end up in prison.

A little more than a year ago, Johnston graduated from high school. She was, by all accounts, a teenager who had everything going for her. A rising tennis player backed by a supportive, churchgoing family, Johnston was preparing for her freshman year of college, and had even won a scholarship.

I hope to pay for image storage space tomorrow (I have to go through a few contortions to accomplish this and don’t know if I’ll succeed!). If ABC puts the segment online, I’ll have screensnaps up on Wednesday.

You Call That A Phone? This — iPhone — Is A Phone!

On YouTube, Crocodile Dundee pits his iPhone against a villain’s alleged phone (be it Treo, Rzr, HTC, or N95).

YouTube: The Greatest American Hero Fan Titles

The Greatest American Hero

An exact duplication of the opening credits of TVs finest superhero show. Well, minus all the effects.

Hardly exact. But it cracked me up. Especially when “Ralph” becomes visible again.

Oh Man. The Worst Part Is The Wait…

July 9, 2007

ectoplasmosis (evil daughter of now-dead father Table of Malcontents) comes up with Star Trek vs. Batman.

Man, I’ve got to wait maybe two hours to see it! And this is with broadband!

Brothers, have you never heard of Veoh? They will foot the bandwidth bill!

Update: I’ve seen part one of the three. It’s easy to see what separates professionals from amateurs fans. Although this is fun, it lacks the slickness of either series. There are just so many little things they could have done to make it better. Lost opportunity… Still, go get it! (And to the filmmakers: Veoh, guys, Veoh!)

Quote Of The Day: Junkiness

Avril-y Good Lawsuit

Ooh, this is a tough one. On the one hand, Lavigne has absolutely no talent so its hard to believe she could write something without ripping it off. On the other, she’s so musically retarded, she doesn’t know who David Bowie is so odds are slim she’s aware of an obscure 70’s band. Hmmmm…..

And you have to go read the punchline!

What My Inner Dick Screams

Except, sometimes, it hijacks my mouth so I say this shit out loud too.

Come On

Sinfest has been spying on my pathetic life again… damn your nanocams, Ishida!

YouTube Is Suddenly So Yesterday

July 9, 2007

I’ve said P2P is dying, and it is. (Some people are trying to help it into an earlier grave.)

YouTube, I said was the new P2P.

Well, with its 10-minute upload limitations, YouTube is pretty much a frustrating experience to grab things of any length. Plus, Auntie Beeb seems to be keeping its eye on it.

Today there have been many searches for Doctor Who: The Sound of Drums episode that have led people to this blog.

All I will say is this: It’s out there. And not sliced into ten-minute chunks. And not via P2P.

Think outside the YouTube.

(No, don’t email to ask. You’re probably Auntie Beeb in disguise.)
