Jose Can You See 

I mean, come on. I know Bush jokes are too easy and too frequent, but this is funny.

I think the national anthem ought to be sung in English, and I think people who want to be a citizen of this country ought to learn English and they ought to learn to sing the national anthem in English.

Please help me! 

It's official, the soundtrack to my summer is going to be Gnarls Barkley. I am in LOVE! The music is so AMAZING. I wish my uploading abilities were working because I would post some songs. Anyways, they're playing Webster Hall and it's SOLD OUT, ugh! If anyone has any connections to Webster Hall or the black community and can get me in I would clean your apartment NAKED! Please help me, make a boy smile!

my friend, his card | amex contest 

help jonathan enjoy his 15 seconds of fame.

"I entered a 15 second film in an online film contest that is a part of
American Express’ "My Life. My Card" campaign. Check it out, if Scorcese and
M. Night Shyamalan like it, I could win a trip to New York City!"

it's so good. watch, then click the stars to vote it for top audience award. or just take him out for an "arnold palmer" (iced tea lemonade) at starbucks. he loves those.


This is not a joke! This commercial is for real and I want to know which one of you concepted, wrote copy, and executed this gem. Oozinator

red & white 

if you haven't already heard the controversy about jack white "shilling" for a coke commercial in australia, uh, people are pretty pissed.

i think it's a cool spot, even if it totally apes michel gondry. although to be fair, i don't know anything about the director, so maybe he's she's 82... been doing stuff like that for years and gondry ripped him her off. who knows. who cares. i like.

i hate AOL 

except of course when they want to give me free swag and cheap drinks. SIN SIN on 2nd Ave @ 5th street from 6-10... there will be half price drinks that whole time served along side some badass beats... this party is sponsored by AOL and there will free stuff floating around.



X-Cuse me for one moment while I x-tol myself.

Everyone knows I'm a big X-Men freak, borderline nutjob. So you can imagine my x-citement when I got to do a little (a lot) X-Men: The Last Stand (the third X-Men movie) freelance work for their website.

It's a search engine that works from a keyword database. I wrote all the responses. Sounds more technical than it is. Just type in a word, any word, and it'll give you a response. It's intended to enter "Wolverine", "Storm", "Cyclops", and other X-Men related things, but go on. You know you want to enter something vulgar. And there'll be an appropriate response waitin' for ya.

Other non-Nate X-Men news, you can watch the trailer here.

ping pong party! 

In the second installment of the "Don't you wish you were there?" series, I'm featuring the bitchingist party ever, Matt S's 52nd birthday smash (4/20). Yes, that's us partying on the street. And yes, New York is the best town ever when you're playing rotational ping pong on a hot spring night.

the family guy 

fox has created an advergame that has american dad going against the family guy, ninja style. i'm for the family guy all the way. the biggest problem is they left brian out.

write on! 

you know you are a top gun graffiti tagger when you hit Air Force One with the slogan "Still Free". Marc Ecko of Marc Ecko Enterprises gave the US gov. a bit of a shakeup w/ this video. before they could get out the paint buckets it became clear this was all an elaborate hoax. this is what the AP had to say about it.

since we are on the topic of graffiti, the brooklyn museum will be presenting a graffiti exhibition june 30th-sept. 3rd.

UPDATE - natalie adds:

This is my old boss (well, the ex-worldwide chief CD) at Publicis. Dave Droga, of Droga5, apparently. p.s. Bridget, pls note the director - !

Fake Breast Doc Busted

Florida man, 76, fingered in door-to-door free screen scheme

APRIL 19--Meet Philip Winikoff. The 76-year-old Florida man was arrested this morning and charged with sexual battery after he posed as a doctor and went door-to-door--black doctor's bag in hand--offering women free breast exams. According to a Broward County Sheriff's Office report, two women--ages 33 and 36--fell for the scam, which Winikoff allegedly ran in Lauderdale Lakes. Charged with several felonies, Winikoff was booked into the sheriff's lockup, where the below mug shot was snapped. Police are now investigating whether other women may have been tricked into impromptu examinations.

Boys Beware 

This is a 50's video shown to Junior High students. It taught them how to avoid homosexuals. And I quote:

What Jimmy didn't know was that Ralph was sick. A sickness that wasn't visible like smallpox. But no less dangerous and contagious. A sickness of the mind. You see, Ralph was a homosexual.

For a shorter version, check this one out. I'm not making this shit up.
