Check out this slick video promo for an upcoming BBC special on the Allied forces storming of Omaha Beach. It looks like it came out pretty epic considering it was made by just three guys.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have stormed into the playoffs with a bandwagon that has quickly filled near capacity. Well now they've got something even better going for them. When the Jags take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in the second game of today's wild card double header they'll have a porn star in their corner. Thanks to the indispensable Lion In Oil for relaying this story (via Walk Off Balk) about Jenny Hendrix, internet radio, and Jack Del Rio's hotel room habits...
Porn star Jenny Hendrix loves the Jacksonville Jaguars almost as much as having anal sex. Now, Hendrix is parlaying her interest in professional football into a new gig as a commentator on PG13Football.com, an internet radio show.
Hendrix, star of "The Jenny Hendrix Anal Experience," says she hopes to use skills learned on the show to eventually get into sports broadcasting.
"No one else in the porn industry is doing this," she says. "There are a lot of girls in this industry who don't want to make a name for themselves."
Who are these porn stars that are trying to stay anonymous and what the fuck is wrong with them (you know, aside from the possible childhood molestation)? Of course the best part of the story isn't Jenny's love of the Jags (or her love of anal), it's that the feelings are reciprocated by Jags coach Jack Del Rio.
One person who already knows Hendrix' name is Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio, who called the show her first day on the job.
"He was familiar with my work," she says gleefully. "He says he saw it in a hotel."
Bearded Jack wants you to read this interview about the upcoming 4th season of Lost. It sounds like they're going to be dealing with the future a lot from now on, I can't wait. Hopefully the writer's strike will end soon and they can get back to filming more Lost.

Apple - Trailers - Planet B-Boy: "Planet B-Boy
Copyright 2008 Elephant Eye Films
With compelling characters and vibrant dance sequences, PLANET B-BOY is set in the International world of b-boying – the urban dance more commonly known as “breakdancing.” Weaving between the vivid backdrops of Osaka, Paris, Seoul and Las Vegas, spectacular choreography frames the intimate stories of dancers who struggle for their dreams despite being misunderstood by larger society and their own families. An American dancer in Vegas looks for his big break; a Korean son seeks his father’s approval; a twelve-year-old boy in France confronts his family’s racism – all the b-boys’ lives collide in Germany where their skills are put to the ultimate test: the “Battle of the Year” finals, with crews from 18 nations vying for the title of World Champion."
With smokers becoming the new lepers, these ‘Smoking Mittens‘ were specifically created for those social deviants who have been relegated to the great outdoors to ignite their tobacco sticks. The mittens were designed with a perfectly punched hole in the glove that provides smokers with a method to hold their cigarettes without risking frostbite to their digits. And although these were mainly intended for the ostracized nicotine-inhaling demographic, we can see ‘em being an even bigger hit amongst snowboarders, many of whom appreciate and routinely burn an even more enjoyable type smokable outside.

Bijan Rezvani dropped his iPhone on the subway tracks in New York City. Instead of contacting the transit authorities like a sane person, he braved oncoming trains, the electric third rail, and plague rats to jump down and snatch it. His exuse? "I needed my phone, so... I got it." Even though we call it the Jesusphone, people, it's not going to save your life.
If you’re in a repressive Communist country and have a little time to kill, what are you going to do? I mean, the Internet’s all censored, TV as well. You need a hobby, and this young man’s is papercraft, the art of sculpting complex and/or beautiful items out of paper and glue.
But this guy’s gone to the next level, and we love it. Using nothing but cardboard from Chinese KFC buckets (they have KFC in China?), he’s built a fully-posable replica of Bumblebee from last year’s Transformers movie. And it’s badassery at its finest. Hit the jump to see the final product. Then make sure to hit the guys blog at the link provided for tons more photos and a rough how to. Warning: wonderful Engrish abounds.

The World Series of Beer Pong is going on right now in Las Vegas, here is an article with more info on this tournament with a $50,000 grand prize.
Barack Obama was able to get himself a victory in the Iowa caucuses, pulling in 38% of the vote with 99% of the precincts reporting. According to entrance polls, Obama likely won because voters saw him as a candidate that represented change, which never hurts in a campaign year where voters are tired of the status quo.
Obama will always be the basketball fan's candidate, and we'd like to take this opportunity to remind you that he's the only one running for President from either party who has the necessary skills to represent our country on the hardwood. Once again, here's a young Obama ballin' back in his high school days.

Topless woman in park used as bait in police sting - Boing Boing: "Topless woman in park used as bait in police sting
Posted by Mark Frauenfelder, January 2, 2008 11:59 AM | permalink
ABC news has a story and video about a police sting operation in Columbus, Ohio. The cops put a topless women in the park (topless sunbathing is allowed) and waited. A 42-year old man approached the woman. She smiled at him, and at one point playfully put her foot on his shoulder. She asked him to show his penis. A few seconds after he complied with her request, the cops rolled up on the grass in their SUV and busted him."

The Airport Security Follies - Jet Lagged - Air Travel - Opinion - New York Times Blog: "The Airport Security Follies
By Patrick Smith
Six years after the terrorist attacks of 2001, airport security remains a theater of the absurd. The changes put in place following the September 11th catastrophe have been drastic, and largely of two kinds: those practical and effective, and those irrational, wasteful and pointless."
