If you haven’t heard of it, Hulu is an online video site from several major TV and movie studios where they put entire television shows and movies. I signed up for the private beta a month or so ago and finally got my invite today and I love what I see.
There aren’t too many movies, Breakfast Club, Conan The Barbarian, Sideways to name a few, but they have a lot of TV shows, mostly from NBC. But they do have WKRP In Cincinnati.
I just want to test their embedded video option, like what you’ve seen from me with YouTube, with one of my favorite SNL skits from the last few years: Business Meeting With Rainn Wilson – I LOVE absurdity. Enjoy!

I’ve always been a big fan of Calvin and Hobbes, there’s something very Zen about that boy and his stuffed tiger. I still remember the final strip in the paper and it always takes me back.
But! Just in time for our first Christmas without snow (in recent memory), here are some of the best C&H snowman strips. Hope you get a kick out of them too. Merry Christmas!

The greatest band of all time is finally coming out with the greatest movie of all time. Tenacious D In The Pick Of Destiny hits theaters November 22nd and I can’t wait. I’ve been a big fan of the D since their days on HBO. Their album was OK but it’s their bootlegs that are hysterical. The best one I’ve listened to (a few hundred times) is them live at the Largo Pub January 21, 1999. Just amazing. (Un)Fortunately, it is not for the little ones.
They have a website up for the movie now and you really should sit through the first couple of minutes where they intro the website – more comedy genius.

“Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo.” is a grammatically valid sentence used as an example of how homonyms and homophones can be used to create complicated constructs. It was featured in Steven Pinker’s 1994 book The Language Instinct, but is known to have been around before February 1992 when it was posted to Linguist List by William J. Rapaport, an associate professor at the University at Buffalo.

So Bill has the excellent restaurant guide and writes wicked cool sentences. Another Buffalo (buffalo) treasure.

Is OK GO on treadmills. What they lack in video production, they make up in choreography.

Hey Luke Wilson
The Dan come down hard on Owen Wilson in an open-letter to his brother Luke. I’m surprised they couldn’t agree on The Royal Tenenbaums (the other Wes Anderson movie that the Wilsons don’t have to be ashamed of).
Best. Open-letter. Ever.

As promised NBC has started offering the webisodes for The Office. As advertised, it shows the accountants (Angela, Kevin and Oscar) discovering that money is missing from the company account and they are going to find it.
Not sure what’s funnier though, the webisodes or the FedEx/Kinkos commercial that plays before each episode. That’s more like my workplace for sure…

Funny story out of Tuscon, AZ about a couple who are still waiting to see what their 18 month old daughter is going to be like before deciding on a name. Jack is 18 months right now and we had a name for him 6 months before he was even born!
It’s interesting to note that since the kid doesn’t have a legal name yet, it also has no birth certificate or social security number and therefore cannot be declared as a tax deduction (ouch!). Wonder what they do for health care?
