Hey guys.

I'm in Australia right now.
I'll write more later after I figure out why my blogger website is in Japanese.

I've met a lot of Australian people and the Aussie guy behind me just said "cheers for that bro" in his cool accent.


P.S. Kangaroos are NOT for sale. However, there are lot of birds you can hijack off the street.

New sounds on the whip

Noah and I completed the installation of four brand new speakers this afternoon. It was actually worth it doing it ourselves. Other than the fact that the interior required a lot of disassembly (which I doubt would happen on newer vehicles), the installation was actually pretty easy. What made it so easy was the fact that I bought adapters, which meant that no soldering or wirestripping was needed. Nice!

When is Alex going to start writing about kangaroos and dingos and stuff on here?

Hot Dogs

I watched the Hot Dog Eating Contest on ESPN today. And it was amazing. Never have I been gripped to the TV for 15 minutes like that before. You'd think it was boring, or a just-kind-of-not-worth-your-time kind of thing. Wrong. This had action. This had patriotism. This dogs.
Joey Chestnut downed 66 hot dogs in 15 minutes with Takeru Kobayashi coming in second with 63. And neither of them passed out. Chestnut was coherent and talking afterward. The average person eats that amount of hot dogs in a year. Honestly, at this point, shouldn't we be looking into at what point eating too much food at what time will kill you? If you can die from too much water, something has to happen when you eat that amount of hot dogs.

Random note:
Underarmour's gonna go out of business if they keep making their commercials this inane. Cause you might have kids copying them.


Me and AJ were searching the Internet the other day and found this. And all you have to do is enter your search term and Google will give you the popularity of that particular search over the past year or so. Not only does it give you a graph, but also the cities, regions, and countries where this search term is the most popular. This took away hours of our time as we searched for pertinent uses (Read: wastes) of this thing (that's what it is right? A thing. A useless thing.).
Here's a look at some of our searches:

  • When Steve Irwin died, the search death jumped up 100%.

We'll think of more later. For now though,

Kick Ass Things

It's amazing what the Internet has.

This dude is sweet.

And you can get your Obama ringtones here.
Man I hope he wins.



so Alex and I were just discussing doing a post on our favorite SportsCenter commercials, which prompted me to look up this beauty. Someone told me it aired for a very short period of time before the school pulled it.

But the real gem was found by clicking on one of those ridiculous videos they show links to at the end. Check this out. Some guy was obviously perturbed about the quality of high school umpiring in crapville, new hampshire, that he took his case to youtube. And lost miserably. If you take it full screen and go frame by frame (which can only be done by double clicking the play/pause button really fast), you will see that the ball landed foul by at least a foot. But before that, take time to appreciate the accents: "IT HIT THE CHAWLK!"
Plus, I'm wondering, what the hell is this guy doing standing there videotaping? Is he like "gosh, I really hope someone hits one down the line so I can put it on YouTube and become famous!!!"?? And if you continue to click on the related links, you will see that there is no shortage of dunderheads who have attempted to reach baseball justice via YouTube.

Barry Bonds and Shawne Merriman, two big name players in their respective sports and both convicted of taking steroids and to top it off they were both selected to their respective all star games. Does this make any sense to anyone? How can someone that took steroids make their all star game? It seemed like each sport was against steroids so no one would have an unfair advantage. All that happened to Merriman was a couple game suspension and a slap on the wrist. I don't know how anyone else feels about this, but I feel it is absolutely ludicrous.


Paris just got out of jail a few days ago.

And this reporter won't report about it. I don't get it. I'm still searching for one good reason we should care about her. No, I'm serious. Are we fascinated by her hottness?

And is it kind of worrisome that the two things that people care most about these days are a hotel fortune heiress and an iPod that makes calls? I guess if we didn't care about them, we'd all be watching C-Span. And on a unrelated side note, I just researched C-span on their website. Still boring.

Edit: Peter Gammons just mentioned the iPhone on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball Twins-Tigers game. Not to mention he just said iPhone and YouTube in the same sentence. Which means his head should be exploding any second now.

Edit2: If every play in baseball were highlight worthy...would you watch it?
