Update 08.16.06

I don’t have much on my mind right now. Actually, that’s not true – I have tons on my mind right now, but the limited ability to express such things in words at this time. So instead of just posting another “Mr Clean” photoshop, I figured I would kill a few birds with one post.

Reminder: Ben Araiza is having the second annual “Perfect Day for a Cure” this Saturday night at Alice Cooper’stown. Show starts at 8. All proceeds go to the Lance Armstrong Foundation. Go here for more information, or contact me.

A perfect day.

And (like this is an afterthought)… I made yet another Mr. Clean Photoshop. I have created a Mr. Clean page in the blog where you can see all of my Mr. Clean images. It is also linked in the left sidebar under “Miscellany”. Enjoy them, for I know that I am having fun creating them. If you have any suggestions for other Mr. Cleans, let me know via comments.

Avast! (see, that’s a hint about what the newest Mr. Clean image is…)

Design Decision Complete

When I last left off in my Credit Card Design post, I had a majority vote for design #4, but I was still leaning towards #5. I asked my brother why his preference was for #4 and he said that the crease in the sheet music wasn’t as apparent as it was in #5.

I sided with Mark about how the Keys should appear on image #5, so I decided to use the best of both worlds. I took some new pics of sheet music (Metropolis Part 1) without a crease in it, and combined it with the Keys from #5. Here is the final product.

No takebacks now. The image has been submitted, and accepted, for my new credit card.

Perfect Day for a Cure 2

Just giving my peeps a heads-up. The Ben Araiza band will be playing their second annual Perfect Day for a cure show this Saturday night, August 19th. For anyone who likes music, this is the show to be at. All proceeds for the Perfect Day for a Cure show go to the Lance Armstrong Foundation.

Ben Araiza is an up and coming talent who’s music ranges from Rock to Pop to Pop Rocks and Coke. I have seen a lot of live shows, and it really doesn’t get much better than the Ben Araiza band on stage.

So, come on out and hang out with some great people for a great cause.

A perfect day.

I’m only quarter Jewish…

Oh man. I like Mel Gibson, I really do. I think he is a fantastic actor. Braveheart is one of my top 5 all time favorite movies. But he does have a drinking problem. And he said some anti-semitic things while drunk… He asked for forgiveness. I forgive him.

But now he has a new website to explain his, erm, remarks – I Hate Juice dot com.

It’s messed up, yet it’s a bit funny. Someone had too much time on their hands to create this in 1 week.

teh Funny intartube – 1.1

I have recently seen some funny videos on the web, so I wanted to spread teh funny wealth.

1. Darth Vader being a smartass: OMG! This is just classic. It definitely helps if you have some knowledge of Empire (and the scene this was taken from).

2. Frustrated Mac User: I may have posted this before, but it is extremely teh funny.

3. Pirates 2 crushes Aquaman: Apparently somebody negleted to tell this CNBC reporter that Aquaman was a fictional movie directed by James Cameron and starring Vincent Chase (from the fantastic HBO show Entourage – If you haven’t seen Entourage, go get seasons 1 and 2 on DVD. You will not be disappointed).

4. The Nickel Trick: Probably one of the best billiards shots ever invented.

5. Video Made the Internet Star – Not the funniest thing ever, but extremely creative use of treadmills.

6. Fall Out Boy – Sugar, We’re going down – The misheard lyrics. In video/MSPaint format. The one that started them all (at least for me – thanks to Daniel Almaraz)

7. Nightwish – Wishmaster: The misheard lyrics. Another video along the lines of the Fall Out Boy video above. Fantastically cheesy song.

8. Dream Theater – Only a matter of Tyme: The misheard lyrics. In this case, Thyme is even misspelled. Uses live footage as the video, but the words are good and it is my favorite band…

9. Dream Theater – Innocence Faded: Another DT misheard lyrics. And only pictures for the video, but funny lyrics.

And I’m spent. If you know of any funny videos that you think belong in a post such as this, let me know.

UPDATE: I removed the embeded video from these links because they were causing my site to load… poorly. – Yarsh 08.15.2006
