You know what, I was kinda excited to see this lame romantic comedy until that group of bloody Muppets just ruined it all…
(Well played Disney, well played)
Ah yes, it’s that time of year kiddies. St. Patrick’s day.
And this St. Patrick’s will be an extra special one for the old ctoverdrive. As not only will it be my first St. Patty’s in Arlington (An strongly Irish part of The District), but it’ll be my first St Patty’s in three years where I wasn’t traveling from SXSW. So to get you in the mood for some good time, please enjoy this classic Pogues number.
(Also, if you’re stuck at work please try out The write your own Irish Memoir Mad-Libs Style... courtesty of Mr. Rennie).
I can’t imagine a better way to celebrate Christmas than with the Pogues, Kirsty MacColl and one of the most amazing Christmas songs ever written.
You promised me broadway was waiting for me
You were handsome you were pretty
Queen of new york city when the band finished playing they yelled out for more
Sinatra was swinging all the drunks they were singing
We kissed on a corner
Then danced through the night.
And the boys from the NYPD choir were singing Galway Bay
And the bells were ringing out for christmas day.
So to everyone out there, have a Happy Christmas and may you get drop down drunk on Boxing day.
Yes kids, rumors of demise have been greatly exaggerated.
I’d love to get into the details of the past 30-odd days, but I really need to conserve my energy for figuring out what city I am in. So in the meantime, you’ll have to enjoy this great example of everyone’s second favorite tech term – crowdsourcing… albeit this is a wee-bit different than you’re normal example of crowdsourcing.
The story goes that these girls uploaded this video to YouTube shortly after committing the crime. So what do the Boston Bruins do when some drunk southie girls trashes the beloved bathrooms of the new TD Gardens? They make them pay for the damages and turn the event into a hilarious commercial featuring The Creepy Bear.
And for the record, the creepy Bear is clearly the most entertaining spokesman in sports. Well, except Delonte West... Except he’s not really a spokesman… He’s just nuts.
I’m probably one of the few people in the world who missed this commercial, but it comes directly from Calgary’s own FuddyTv… It’s for True Credit and it’s priceless.
To be honest, the first time I watched it It caught me so of guard I spit coffee out on my desk. Freaking well done guys.
First: This is too good not to post, but it’s a set of unreal set of Zombie-fied Stationary
Second – I’m sorry, but this whole Steve Jobs thinks that the Android is for Porn makes me laugh.
First off, I think it’s a good stance by Apple, even if it kind of oddly goes against one of the key driving forces of the internet. Keeping porn out of the iPhone store gives it so much more trust and credibility. But there’s just something funny about how everyone is publicly supportive of the move, but I have to wonder what the reaction would be if Microsoft said the same thing? Remember what happened to Nintendo when they decided against gore and extreme violence in their video games.
Third – Have you noticed something different about c.t.overdrive (and armadillostudios.ca)?
Probably not, but try to and hover over one of the Twitter names that appear in my posts. If you do, you’ll notice that I’ve integrated @follow into all of these sites.
Fourth – @poploser has launched an interesting new project called lofi/hifi, in which he will be donating all 3,000 records in his vinyl collection to be turned into custom furniture. I only own 40 vinyl records and I know I’d be in tears if I knew they were set to be destroyed. So kudos to him for that.
Fifth – These are the companies in your neighbourhood
This isn’t really a tech company, but this is awesome new for Knife-nerds. (I’m kinda of a closet knife nerd), But Calgary’s Knifewear are now selling their own brand of Calgary designed/Japanese built cooking knives (via. @myownbiggestfan).
This is awesome, awesome news.
Seventh – If you remember my post from last week about the Three Wolf T-Shirt, this will make you laugh.
Eighth – By the way, if you’re curious about how the Formspring.me experiment has been going, lets just say it’s been a pretty cool success. So please, take a gander and fire-off any business (or apparently flames) questions you may have.
Ninth – I think ever every
metro hetrosexual male in the world can get behind this campaign.
