Nobody can eat 50 eggs!

I just read that Paul Newman died on Friday.

This may not be the best homage to him, but it certain is a memorable scene from one of my favorite movies, Cool Hand Luke. His character bets that he can eat 50 eggs in an hour. The best part is Paul Newman actually did it. I always wondered if I could do that, but never actually wanted to test myself to find out.

I was looking to remind everyone of our favorite Holidays movie: SIlent Night, Deadly Night but I found this gem instead, it's review by Siskell and Ebert:

"Take that, take that, take that." - P. Diddy

A side project I've been working on.
hip hop & eggs _ episode 1 from hip hop & eggs on Vimeo. Good to do some stuff that's not advertising to keep myself sane.

Banksy hits New Orleans

I came across these pics of some of Banksy's work he recently (Late August) did in New Orleans. He wanted to raise some awareness three years after Katrina and see what was going on there. Apparently in a cab ride through town he said to the driver, "There's still so much devastation - I can't believe they haven't cleaned this mess up." The cab driver replied, "This part of the city wasn't affected by the hurricane - it's always looked like this."

New Orleans is also an interesting place for him to show off because there is a rivalry between taggers/graffiti artists and "The Grey Ghost". The Grey Ghost is a local guy who goes around and paints over all graffiti he sees with either grey or beige paint. While I appreciate his effort to clean up the streets, I also find it a shame that a lot of great art. Grey is so booring, but I guess that's part of the point.

I'd like to imagine the Grey Ghost will at least pause for a moment before he paints over what Banksy did and appreciate it. Hopefully he'll find it interesting enough to leave up... Most of the stuff he paints over is probably not worth remembering, but apparently, he takes a picture before he blots out whatever it is with grey.
Check out the Banksy site for bigger (and more) pics:

The new Bond chick, whoever she is, is way too fucking hot to be real.


Mike: (about Transmorphers) This movie might not even be rated.
Andrew: Awesome, that means we'll definitely see some ro--
William: Wait. Were you about to say "We'll see some rod?"
Andrew: .... No?

Underwater Bears, the sequel

Apparently scientists have sent so called 'water bears' into space. The interesting thing is that the scientists exposed these creatures to the vacuum of space and the direct radiation of the Sun... and they survived! Mike, prepare yourself, your worst nightmares will come true... Underwater bears, IN SPACE!!
Granted, these 'water bears' are actually tiny invertebrates about one millimeter long...and most of them died... but if the scientists bred the survivors and then keep sending the offspring into space we will have creatures that can actually live in space with no protection at all... AND TAKE OVER THE WORLD! --- I don't really know how being able to live in space will help them ON EARTH, but hey, why not.
Mike, I'm still waiting for your script about the movie with underwater bears. Scientists are already trying to breed these bears to have superpowers, and you can't let some scientist beat you to a ridiculous concept with his "facts" and "logic".

This weekend I was with my girlfriend on the way to watch the Jags/Titans game(go Jags!) when while listening to a local pop station MIA's runaway hit, "Paper Planes" came on. I got excited because I really like this song and started to rock out to it. At this point my girlfriend looks over at me and flatly says "you know this is the radio edit of this song right?" What? why does it need to be edited ? This song is great, it's lyrics aren't so's popular what the hell did they sensor?

Well, to my extreme disappointment they took out the sounds of the gunshots and cash register "cha-ching!" from the refrain. Seriously...and you know what's funny? It absolutely ruins the song and makes it sound more or less like any other pop/rap song, it removes any "edge" from the song.

So my question is this: What's the point of censoring those sounds? Are people honestly worried that gunshots in a song are going to inspire violence? In a world 20 or so years removed from Ice T's Cop Killer and in a world where kids are playing Grand Theft Auto IV do you really think that this song is going to inspire violence and warp our youths? I don't know, I guess I just don't get it and this is consequently why I don't really listen to the radio much anymore...
