Pulling one over on the VA DMV [Video]

Indie filmmakers Will Carsola and Dave Stewart pulled this prank off as part of a "movie" they're putting together. Apparently, after the Virginia DMV caught wind of the above video, they issued a letter to both of them demanding that they play fair:
The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles said yesterday it is ordering two men to get their license photos retaken -- this time without the red-painted skin, spray-on hair and fake teeth -- or lose their driving privileges.
According to the two, DMV employees hardly raised an eyebrow to their antics. Not much life at that party, huh? But you already know that.

Don't mess with my RSS

I upgraded this blog to the new non-Beta version of Blogger earlier this week. So far, I have to say that I like some of the new features. My favoritest feature of them all, and the reason I upgraded are the new "Labels." They allow you to categorize your posts pretty easily, a la the "Tags" feature on Flickr.

In my excitement, I've been going retro and adding Labels to older posts, and it is apparently wreaking havoc on my RSS feed. It looks as though the feed is picking up my posts in the order they are updated, rather than the order they were posted. I apologize to my two readers if my trip down memory lane has messed with their RSS readers.

Hopefully Blogger will sort this out soon.

RAW's poem

Robert Anton Wilson, a novelist, philosopher and futurist (among other things) muses on his new blog:
Wavy Gravy once asked a Zen Roshi, "What happens after death?"

The Roshi replied, "I don't know."

Wavy protested, "But you're a Zen Master!"

"Yes," the Roshi admitted, "but I'm not a dead Zen Master."

Jo Koy is creepy [Video]

I saw this commercial a few weeks ago, and it made me squirm. There's something about a grown man making out with his mobile phone that creeps me out.

Watch and learn why Amp'd missed this one by a mile.

I imagine that the board room conversation went something like this:

Ad Exec 1: "Check out our hip new commercial with hot comedian Jo Koy!"

Ad Exec 2: "I don't get it. It's actually kinda creepy."

Ad Exec 1: "Me neither, but the kids will go crazy for this shit! Trust me!"

Frozen beer trick [Video]

Here's your neat beer trick for the day courtesy of Jason Kottke:
I learned something terrific yesterday: if you take a really cold but still liquid beer out of the freezer and open it, the beer will freeze within seconds. The freezing trick also works if instead of opening the beer, you give the unopened bottle a sharp rap.
Here's a video for proof:

Check out tylermcgregor's attempt at video blogging. He scored over a million views within a week of posting it.

I think he may have figured out the internet.

Thanks Jack!
