Chipotle Video “Back To The Start” – Sustainable Agriculture

Coldplay’s haunting classic ‘The Scientist‘ is performed by country music legend Willie Nelson for the soundtrack of the short film entitled, “Back to the Start.” The film, by film-maker Johnny Kelly, depicts the life of a farmer as he slowly turns his family farm into an industrial animal factory before seeing the errors of his ways and opting for a …

Crayola Multicultural Crayons – Arizona Limited Edition Set

This image of the Crayola Multicultural Crayons Set has been making its rounds on Facebook and I thought I’d repost it for the 3 of you not on FB.  Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed the country’s toughest illegal immigration bill into law on April 23, 2010.  Among other things, the law makes it a state-level criminal offense (a misdemeanor) to not carry immigration documents or proof of citizenship at all times.  Police will have the power to stop people at will and request these documents (passport, drivers license, green card…).

The Twitter Fail Whale Hat

I love Twitter memes. Long after stability comes to Twitter, we will still wax nostalgic over our dear friend, The Fail Whale. I’m feeling inspired towards a Twitter-themed Halloween costume this fall:

Harry Potter and The Dark Lord Waldemart

On June 21st, the final Harry Potter book, Deathly Hallows, will go on sale and millions of copies will go flying off of store shelves. Unfortunately, the smaller local and regional bookstores will not be seeing much of this initial rush. Why? Wal-Mart will be selling the books at a loss at 50% off the suggested retail price.

They send me a newsletter in violation of the Federal CAN-SPAM Act and I forward that newsletter to the Federal Trade Commission, their hosting providers, their …

The Real Simpsons

After, what, 16 seasons or something of unique intro credits for The Simpsons, they’ve finally made a live-action version. Marge needs bigger hair. Why is Lisa twice as big as Bart? Why is Maggie on the wrong side of the car? (it’s british). Not all I’d have hoped for, but still fun. Here’s the Simpsons Intro on Google Video.

mmm… Taco Bell

I love Taco Bell. Though, now that I’m back on the Body for Life treadmill, it’s a guilty pleasure not quite often indulged. Nevertheless, if you haven’t been in a while, you have to check out the clever quotes now appearing on the hot sauce packets. It’s the little things, really

Rent Is Coming!

At last! The musical that saved Broadway is coming to the big screen. It’s a musical version, a la Chicago, and reunites many of the most renowned members of the Broadway casts. Adam Pascal and Idina Menzel both look great in the trailer. Everyone should see Rent on Broadway (luckily I’ve seen it like 28 times) and now the whole …
