Shared Items from Google Reader

Tuesday, January 29, 2008


I've decided to switch things up a bit and go back to using the Google Reader shared items, but I'm going to keep the blog to post things occasionally too. I'm going to share all of the items from my blog on the shared items feed so you don't have to subscribe to both, and I've embedded the shared items feed in a widget at the top of the blog so you can see it all from this page as well.

I suggest you click Read More... in the widget which takes you to the old Shared Items page and follow the instructions listed there to configure your own Google Reader and subscribe to the RSS feed from my shared items. Or just click here for the shared items feed to add it to your feed reader of choice.

Here's a review for Burnout Paradise, it's quickly becoming my new obsession. Watch it in HD, this game is beautiful.

Macworld 2008 is Approaching

What does Steve Jobs have in store for us this year? Last year it was the debut of the iPhone, God's gift to gadget nerds like myself. Wired has a great story about the creation of the iPhone and how it has helped transform the cell-phone industry. Can Mr. Jobs work some of that same magic this year and surprise everyone with something spectacular? I can only hope.

Jenny Hendrix Loves Jags, Anal [Wild Card Weekend]via Deadspin by on 1/5/08

jennyhendrixmclovin.jpgThe 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, 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."

Spoilerish Interview with Jack from Lost

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.

Planet B-Boy

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."

The Wire is Back!

The Wire is back starting tomorrow night on HBO for season 5, but episodes 1, 2, 5, 6, 7 have already leaked and are begging me to be watched. Damn you playoff football! Here's a great recap/opinion of the earlier seasons from Cracked, in my opinion season 3 had the best theme but they're all great.

'Smoking Mittens' Make Outdoor Ciphers Possible In Winter

‘Smoking Mittens’ Make Outdoor Ciphers Possible In Winter via Complex by bucky on 1/4/08

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.

If this happened to me I wouldn't be an idiot like this guy

I'd wait for the next subway to come, hope it doesn't crush my sweet precious iPhone, and then jump down to get it as soon as the train pulls off. Gotta use common sense, right? via Valleywag

via Valleywag by Mary Jane Irwin on 1/4/08

rezvaniBijan 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.

Via Crunchgear, an awesome Bumblebee creation

Papercraft Bumblebee made of KFC buckets: I want one!via CrunchGear by Matt Hickey on 1/4/08


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.

Obama: Baller Status

Pretty interesting post from NFL Fanhouse on Barack Obama and his balling days.

Obama Still Ballin', Takes Iowa Caucus

Filed under: ,

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.

How messed up is this?

What exactly are the cops trying to prove here?

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."

Great Article About Airport "Security"

This is a great article on the giant mess that is airport security, as told by a commercial airline pilot.

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."

No news is good news?

It looks like I picked an awful time to switch to the blog format, I guess it is because of New Year's but there hasn't been anything new or interesting on any of my feeds lately. Check out this Rolling Stone article on the war on drugs if you haven't already, it's a really good read.
