Fast Food Hotties

The freshman 15 is inevitable.  30 or 40?  Well that’s vegetable neglect.  This is what happens when your diet consists of fast food and beer.  I know personally :-p

Antoine Dodson Arrested

Antoine Dodson was arrested at around 2:30 AM near Huntsville, Alabama for marijuana possession. He was also booked on charges for failing to appear in court on a traffic charge, failing to have insurance, and speeding.

Still less embarrassing than going on The George Lopez Show…..

Pale Kid Doesn’t Only Rap Fast (Interview Project 1: George Watsky)

My name is Jenni Powell. Some of you know me from my work on the first few episodes of BlackBoxTV.  I also wrote for Tubefilter and have been a huge fan of YouTube and web series since 2006.  Phil asked me to work with him on a project that would share with The Nation some of the artists and creators on YouTube that you may not have had a chance to check out yet…including ones suggested by you.

When beginning this project, Phil and I were bouncing around ideas on what format it could take and the discussion lead to video interviews.  He wanted to know a creator I thought would be interesting to introduce that had a unique voice that people may or may not be familiar with. Without hesitation, I said, “George Watsky.”

Happy Earth Day.

Ron Weasley Smokes Weed

Cannabis Inhaleum! This is allegedly a photo of Rupert Grint, the actor who plays Ron Weasley in theHarry Potter films, smoking from a bong at aHarry Potter cast party. Could be fake, but I want to believe. Something tells me he wasn’t just doing extra coursework for Herbology teacher Pomona Sprout!*

I’m guessing because people have nothing better to do people are freaking out about Rupert Grint possibly smoking weed.  REALLY?  We care about something that while technically illegal is less harmful than alcohol?  BTW did you notice that almost every guy from the Harry Potter movies has gotten jacked?  You’re welcome ladies.  I care about you too.

Taco Bell Wins! Mocks Losers!

If you are unfamiliar, law firm Beasley Allen brought a lawsuit against Taco Bell for not selling real beef in their diarea causing burritos.  So Taco Bell put out this full page ad explaining their beef was real.  Turns out real beef IS used in Taco Bell food.  Since then:

Beasley Allen may have dropped its class-action lawsuit, but Taco Bell isn’t entirely satisfied.

In a full page ad that ran in today’s edition of the Wall Street Journal, LA Times, and The New York Times, the Yum! Brands division asked the Alabama-based lawfirm to apologize for claiming that its meat mixture doesn’t meet the USDA’s requirements to be called “beef.”

“You go it wrong,” Taco Bell tells Beasley Allen in the ad, “and you’re probably feeling pretty bad right about now. But you know what always helps? Saying to everyone, ‘I’m sorry’.”

If Marijuana PSA’s were Honest

Happy 420 Stoners. 😉  Without you I would have never known that bacon tastes delicious with chocolate…..and pretty much everything.
