Friday Funday IX

closePlease note: This post was published over a year ago, so please be aware that its content may not be quite so accurate anymore. Also, the format of the site has changed since it was published, so please excuse any formatting issues.

Friday Funday brings you some fun and interesting links from my travels around the internet during the previous week.

First, a couple of Halloween-related links:

Sounds to Make You Shiver (in Stereo) [del.icio.us]

Just in time for Halloween, here’s a website that posted some MP3s of spooky Halloween sounds from an old LP. The only thing scary about these sounds is how cheesy they are. Be sure to take a look at the cover art.

2004’s Scariest Halloween Costumes [del.icio.us]

A fantastic satire on current events.

Dremel Pumpkin Carving Kit [del.icio.us]

I have a rotary tool. It’s not a Dremel, but it’s the same thing. I love my rotary tool (and yes, I just call it a Dremel. Much like I say Kleenex instead of tissue). If I were going to carve a pumpkin, there would be nothing for me but this. Link via Gizmodo because the Dremel site isn’t working for some reason (with everyone linking to them, they probably went over the transfer limit).

Next, a couple of non-Halloween links:

The Ashlee Simpson iPod [del.icio.us]

It seems like everyone is jumping on the, “make fun of Ashlee Simpson” bandwagon, but after her recent blunder on Saturday Night Live, why the hell not? This is one of the best I’ve seen so far.

Sur l’herbe [del.icio.us]

This picture was originally featured on a real estate website. Either the photographer failed to notice the two dogs bumping uglies out the window, or this is an example of highly sophisticated subliminal advertising strategies in the real estate industry.

And since this is the last Friday Funday before the elections:

Jon Stewart on Crossfire [del.icio.us]

If you missed it, this is really funny. The right-wing nutjob keeps insisting that The Daily Show has a responsibility to journalism, which eventually leads Jon Stewart to call him a dick. After you’ve watched the video, be sure to read about what happened afterward.

  1. Wow, to misspell both Jon Stewart’s first AND last name….:D

    Thank DARPA for the Internet, otherwise I would have missed out on all the Crossfire wackiness.

  2. And what’s so sad about that is that I knew it was wrong, but forgot to fix it.

    Ah well, better late than never. Embarrassed as I am, I’m glad you pointed it out. At least I’ve been spelling your name correctly. -)

  3. Haha! Speaking of which, I was in Fukui City the other day (symbol: Phoenix), and there are a ton of places with the name Phoenix (I love this town), and there was a store or something with Phoenix written in HUGE RED LETTERS (gigantic) on the front that my girlfriend pointed out to me. I said “I see it” because it was, like, GLARING. And she goes, “No, look again.” And I did, and THEN I noticed that it was spelled Pheonix. My own name. In GIANT RED LETTERS. Spelled wrong. And I didn’t notice. 🙁
