9EVxI0uGzeY is the the new eBGIQ7ZuuiU

Actually, it isn’t but it should be. IMHO the Optimum Online Spanish friendly, beach rap commercial is the most terrifying song to get stuck in your head of all time. “what the hell is he talking about” you say? I refer, of course, to the insidious Rick Roll. If you just clicked on that link you sort of got “Rick Rolled.” The way it really works is someone provides you a link to something you really want to see and BAM you are hit with the elctro-tom intro of Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley instead. To be led to that video against your will is to be Rick Rolled. I firmly believe the I/O Digital Cable song could do more damage.

On a completely unrelated note: Lindsay Lohan did it with by a pirate, a ninja, and a monkey... video here.

My ReplayTV (Tivo) Completes Me

My ReplayTV DVR knows what TV I watch, and how much TV I watch, so it also knows I wont be getting any Valentines Day cards. With that in mind, on this loneliest of the Hallmark holidays, it slips me a little reminder that if nothing else my TV loves me.

Expensive Java... Now With Free Java Script.

Starbucks announced today that they are switching from T-Mobile to AT&T and providing free WiFi to their customers for 2 hours a day. Wont be long before we are skipping the line by ordering with our iPhones... Maybe something like THIS!
Okay, pretty lame post, but I had that great Laughing Man style screen grab I just had to use.

Unless you spent the last month in a sequestered jury hotel room you probably know that a large and growing group of anonymous “hackers”/internet users/concerned citizens have been waging war against The “Church” of Scientology. They call themselves Anonymous. They are making life miserable for the greedy group of nut jobs through various methods. Some small... like faxing and re-faxing sheets of black paper to all Scientology fax numbers. Some Large... Like protests outside of various Scientology headquarters.

So if you plan to organize or join a protest in your area, why not do so with hacker-chic stylish anonymity. Just click on the 2 halves above and print them out, over lap em, mount em and cut off the excess. The result is a replica of the digital mask worn by the ultimate hacker with a cause.... The Laughing Man of Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex Fame. I have replaced The Laughing Man’s J.D. Salinger quote “"I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes." with one borrowed from the original Anonymous message... “We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us.” Enjoy.

UPDATE: CUT EYE HOLES PEOPLE! We have already had some accidents!
