Weezer’s “Pork and Beans” video

[youtube width="425" height="355"][/youtube]

Weezer reminds us about how dorky we all are for loving the internet–for being on on it.

Brilliant. It’s a “best-of” video.

And if you don’t recognize many of the clips in this video, you’re a damned Luddite.

The tune isn’t bad. It’s pretty classic Weezer, but that can’t hurt anybody.

Sweet stop-motion video

This is one of the coolest videos I’ve seen in a while. It appears that the creator(s) of this video did all the graffiti themselves. It must have taken forever, but the end product is cash. The music is pretty cool too. I would advise not watching it under the influence of hardcore mind-altering substances. (Just a guess.) Then again, for those of you who really like the trippy stuff, rock it out:

FakeTV emulates human watching the tube, supposedly discourages thieves

Oh, come on. Like we need something to fake that. I think the burglar’s starting assumption is that your over-sized ass is in the couch watching TV. It’s the American thing to do.

New York Yankee Jason Giambi Shares Lucky Thong

Jason Giambi lucky thong

New York Yankee Jason Giambi has a lucky thong.  That thong is gold.  He wears the man thong for luck when he is down.  He has shared the thong with Derek Jeter and Johnny Damon among other professional baseball players.  Everyone has taken notice.  Mike Mussina put a sign on his locker that says “pitchers need thongs too”.  Sadly the thong may have lost its magic touch as Jason Giambi is hitting below the Mendoza Line.  That does not keep Jason from bringing that thong along just like he did when doing poorly for the Oakland A’s and presumably when he was in front of the grand jury for the Balco steroid case a few years ago.

That is the baseball / man thong  equivalent of See Spot Run.
