"Look what I found..."

Random bits of awesome from around the Internet. (A.K.A. the stuff with which I would be stuffing your inbox, if I was one of... um... those people.)

Apparently, once upon a time in crazy land, “The Village People” made a strange and much-maligned movie fictionalizing the creation of their band. In that movie, they created a comical commercial jingle for Milkshakes. I’m made to understand that the commercial was not a success, but i hereby declare this their best song ever!!! Excuse me while i go play this happy piece of ridiculousness for the 5th time in a row.

It’s a unicorn with two horns. A double unicorn. Twice as awesome. Looks like a big, deformed goat. Made of awesome. Still being ridden by a cougar. AN INVISIBLE COUGAR. Because they’re the most dangerous.

Get Your own Yodeling Pickel… That’s right, you heard me.


"I loaned my iPod to my kid and he broke it. This understandably bummed me out, since I really enjoy taking long walks on the beach while listening to some tune-age. I’m kinda low on funds, so buying a replacement iPod wasn’t an option for me. I was very fortunate to discover the Yodeling Pickle. I have been super pleased with the results. First of all, as luck would have it, the Yodeling Pickle just happens to yodel all of my favorite tunes that were stored on my iPod. Hits like "Bobbejaan Schoepen yodels the collected works of Black Sabbath" and of course Slim Whitman’s edgy yodeling rendition of "Baby Got Back."

I have withheld one star from my review however, giving the Yodeling Pickle just four of five possible stars. There isn’t a headphone jack, which is only a problem if the folks around me don’t appreciate yodeling, (which almost NEVER happens). Also, I was accustomed to carrying the iPod strapped to my arm with the elastic armband accessory. Nothing like this is available for the pickle. On my beach walks, I’ve found that the pickle can be carried around by conveniently tucking it down into the front of my Speedo. I’ve met tons of nice ladies on the beach since scoring the pickle. I can only assume they dig yodeling as much as I do.

It’s a great portable music solution for yodeling fans. Cheaper than an iPod and the chicks seem to dig it.”

Beautifully-crafted leather motorcycle “armor” looks just like what a Star Wars storm trooper would wear on his speeder bike. I don’t know how comfortable or protective this is, but at least you know you could have your Halloween costume set for life.

(Click through for video ) The next step in private flight? Twenty years from now will my children commute to work in something like this? Will the freeways of today be reclaimed for something else?

I’m sure a roadless future brings it’s own down sides, but hundreds of electric flying craft lifting off from suburbia every morning and returning every evening like some kind of robotic dinosaur migratory ritual is probably worth the risk.

Then again, maybe we should spend some more time learning how to telecommute…

I find that when someone’s taking time to do something right in the present, they’re a perfectionist with no ability to prioritize, whereas when someone took time to do something right in the past, they’re a master artisan of great foresight.

This may sound ridiculous at the dinner table, but every programmer seeing this is likely to admit having been on both sides of this conversation on more than one occasion.
