Sometimes the smallest advantage in one place, can yield tremendous results someplace else. Basically… you’ve been tying your shoes incorrectly your entire life.

Some things drink water. Other things are water. Most things need water.
The song is Mpls Rock and Roll by Dosh.

A companion piece. Some people completely disregard the holiday season. We on the other hand hope you had a wonderful holiday and got everything you wanted this year.

Shaq makes a great holiday PSA for Toys For Tots. We make it greater.
Seasons Greetings… Miabi Films would like to wish you a happy and healthy holiday season, filled with good tidings and mirth. (Which I thought was a coal or metal-like material until I looked it up just now.) Please accept this little ditty as our 2010 holiday card. All in good fun. I’ve always been a Shaq fan and he’s representing a good cause here. Consider Toys For Tots as part of your end of the year philanthropy. They’re accepting donations up until Christmas Eve. Cheers.
A bunch of genius students at the University of Mississippi started a campaign to install Admiral Ackbar as the new mascot of the school. Making the leap that since they are the Ole Miss Rebels, why not be represented by the commander of the Rebel Alliance. I’ve never been more inspired to organize before. Lucasfilm has since put a cork in the idea, but it’s response is terrific.

Two dudes forge a quick friendship in an otherwise dudeless work environment.
Meyer and I had to do a presentation for work that revolved around the necessary steps it takes to create a web series. We decided to have fun with it. This video is the very special sneak peek of our faux show. See if you can spot the sponsor integration! We judiciously went into work on a Saturday armed with an issue of Maxim and several changes of clothes. Cafaro helped out on camera. Fun Fact: We recorded the theme song on my iPhone.
For those that loved the movie, here’s the trailer re-dub. What I find most entertaining about this is that they’ve decided to play it straight. It’s basically a line for line english to english re-dub of the trailer. Seems like it’s just one big set up for the “brrrrrRRRRRRRRAUMMMMM” sound effect they use repeatedly.
The internet is so great for so many things. Like settling arguments between two friends while at the bar. Searching for the cure to lactose intolerance or permanent hair removal. Or ordering a 4-pack of Tru Blood. (I guess orange soda is a good replacement for human blood.)
And then there’s videos like this. Enjoy…
Just whistle while you work
And cheerfully together we can tidy up the place
So hum a merry tune
It won’t take long when there’s a song to help you set the pace
There’s this guy at work who is constantly whistling. Non-stop. He walks around all day with a too-jolly smirk and a too-jolly strut as he whistles the same indecipherable tune. I get Doppler Effect whistling so its always clear when he’s approaching or on the other side of the floor. This has been going on for a few months now. Did this fucker win the lottery or something? And if so, was it scratch-off or the numbers?
There is a lot of cattiness in my office. People complain about it to each other all the time. Everyone is aware of the whistling and everyone is annoyed by it, but no one will say anything. Alright I take that back… Someone did say something once. But it was said in this really passive aggressive way that completely failed. The guy just laughed and continued on. Whistling.
The problem is that we all really like the guy. There are no other complaints. All told, he seems pretty cool. He is going through a divorce and maybe this is a way of dealing with it. Or maybe he’s so happy about it that he wants to whistle. There’s nothing inherently wrong with people being happy at work. It just makes the pissed off people a little more pissed off. Don’t worry though, those people are always like that and generally never boil over. The point is, it’s become a thing. He’s the whistling guy at work. And no one will tell him.
Today, I went to the men’s room to wash my hands before eating lunch. As I opened the door, the bathroom was empty except for that one occupied stall. And the guy inside. Sitting down. Whistling away.
“That is hilarious.” I said out loud. Washed my hands and left.
I’m not the one telling him.
