Today's Mighty Oak


Alright, let’s see what we have today.

First up, the best Taxi ads.  I love the Milky Way one:

It’s kind of sweet, but still funny. ¬†Oh the Internet, will you ever cease amazing me?

Some big news from the BSA: Both Train and Carly Rae Jepsen have cancelled their concerts at the National Jamboree because of the membership ban. ¬†Jepsen has been welcomed by the Canadian Scouts (she’s Canadian, by the way), and the world jamboree is a joint effort by the scouts of the USA, Canada and Mexico (but hosted here in WV), but here’s the bigger question: Did anyone at national even watch the “Call Me, Maybe” video to the end? ¬†The guy Carly is drooling over is gay. ¬†You’d think that would have tipped them off that she’s interested in equality.

Also in BSA news, petitions were delivered to the National Geographic channel, asking them to cut “Are You Tougher Than a Boy Scout,” or at least put a disclaimer before it. ¬†Personally, I don’t really care either way, I can’t imagine it’s going to get great ratings, only based on the fact that I don’t think Nat Geo is included in many cable packages (but I may be wrong).

As Conclave approaches, I have a new candidate I want to support:

In other equality news, President Clinton is calling for the end of DOMA, the law he signed.

The hatred and bigotry of the Catholic Church leaders, further and further moves away from the Catholic laity. ¬†In fact, 54% of Catholics support marriage equality (civil marriage I believe, but that’s kind of the point, religions can do what they want).

I can’t wait for Joss’s new movie to come out:

That’s it for now, have a great one!



Quick update for everyone today.

First up, new punctuation that we need to add.

Sadly, this is not The Onion.

And how Joss Whedon broke our hears, in less than one season.

That’s it for now, but I’ll be back soon with more!



First up, Joss is amazing:

So, Hurricane Sandy, which is huge:

Is causing people to do strange things:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OTO_NsYkqOo

And has pushed back Halloween trick-or-treating for a lot of communities.  Which gives you time to study:

And just a reminder, Romney wants to defund FEMA.

But in better news, check out this funny disappointing day-planner.

And if you haven’t checked out today’s Google Doodle, make sure you do, it celebrates this birthday:



Alright, a larger update today, let’s see what we have today.

First up, today is the 25th Anniversary of The Princess Bride.  Tor has a great article about some little known facts.

J.K. Rowling may publish a new Harry Potter book, or go back and do “Director’s Cuts” of the series.

The best word ever?  Probably not, but a cool bracket:

Tuesday, October 9 on the CW. ¬†Watch Dr. Horrible’s Sing A Long Blog. ¬†And check out the promo.

Also from the Whedonverse, season 6 of the guild starts in a week:

I somehow got to the mobile site, but check out the new Rock the Vote, from Funny or Die.

PittGirl does a cool article about Pittsburgh clubs.  Check it out!

Copyranter also has some good ads for when you’re having a bad day:

And today’s politics news: Why voter ID is really voter¬†suppression, but since Republicans in Florida are committing it, we should go police it.

This is awesome, and can be done with any magazine, presumably.

That’s it for now, have a great one!



Note: This was mislabeled and unpublished from the back-end of the website, sorry about that!

Alright, let’s see what I have this time. ¬†First up, some amazing ads from Greenpeace:

ABC has ordered a S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot, to be written by Joss Whedon, which is so incredible to hear! ¬†But don’t worry, Captain Hammer is ready to help!

It’s funny and cute:

Sadly, a lot of Facebook Brand pages look like this.

If you’ve ever wondered what the layout to the apartments from The Big Bang Theory are, here they are (although I can’t imagine an actual building would have these kind of layouts, they strangely work well for TV:

What if a t-rex fought in WWII?  Find out here.

That’s it for now, but I’ll be back soon!

 



I think this is an amazing video, because I have such a strange sense of humor:

Announced last week, the Science Channel is going to do a 10th-anniversary Firefly special.  So excited!

AHAHAHAHA: Some evangelicals are trying to boycott Google due to their support for marriage equality.  Good luck with that:

And speaking of marriage equality, at our triannual general convention, the Episcopal Church approved a blessing of same-sex couples. ¬†There’s a lot of caveats to that, I’ll be putting up a post at Metblogs about it, so look for that.

When will news anchors learn that Bill Nye is smarter than you.  She asked him with such snark, it was nice to see him smack her down:

And lastly, the Good Men Project has an awesome poster about words we probably use in our everyday conversation and why they hurt people.  Check it out here.

That’s it for now, have a great one!



Quick update, but I’m hoping to be back with more a little bit later.

First up, check out this awesome preview of The Muppets soundtrack, it’s a lot of fun (and great music of course):

This project reminds me a lot of The July Project I did over at Metblogs, I’ll probably cover it there as well, now that I think about it.

How amazing is Joss Whedon for playing along and doing this?  More reasons why I love that guy:

And an awesome video for the Canadian Paralympic Committee:

That’s it for now, have a great one!



Happy Monday everyone! ¬†Let’s see what we have today:

First up, this ad aired only in Canada during the Super Bowl, but I really like it:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0qZYqdsYAg

Interesting ad from Copyranter:

What a strange caveat.

Lego is releasing LotR sets, and I’m super excited for them, as well as the inevitable video games. ¬†Check it out here.

Amazing post from Literally Unbelievable:

I still need to see Thor and Captain America, but here is the preview for Joss Whedon’s The Avengers, and I’m already making plans to go see it:

Another ad from Copyranger, kind of awesome, would be cool to see this run in City Paper:

I love the toast to Jared in this:

And this ad has been making its rounds, I think it’s fairly well done (or at least a good idea, the art needs some work), although a¬†objectifying¬†to women, I hope there’s a male counterpart in the campaign:

And finally, every presentation you’ll sit through, ever:



Another update for everyone, here we go.

First up, take a look at the 2011 year in movies:

If you are inclined, take a look at the top 50 memes of 2011.

Ever wanted to ride a swing while riding a subway?  Of course you have, check out the video here.

I’m unable to embed it, but we finally have a trailer for Joss Whedon’s Cabin in the Woods (lots of Dollhouse alums).¬† Watch it here.

Funny or Die puts together D&D Character sheets for the Presidential Candidates.  Awesome, in such a nerdy way.

I missed it before, but…Oh little town of Baconham:

 

The band Hanson is going to be brewing a beer called Mmmmhop.¬† Awesome, but I don’t like IPAs, so I’ll be passing.

Pizza hut wins.  Total win.

Staples is going to be selling Dunder Mifflin paper, pretty awesome.

This is scary, take a look inside Amazon distribution centers and warehouses.

Graphic Novel giants take on each other in a fight about Occupy.

The top images of 2011. And 11 anachronistic photos from movie sets.

And finally, something that I thought i heard something about it before, but now it’s coming to market: condoms with a Viagara type gel inside.¬† No reason to not be safe!
 



Couple new items for you today:

Check out this awesome parody:

Wonder why Campbell’s changed their labels?¬† Wonder no more.

This was a really fun read, check out what happens when a 33-year-old goes back to High School.
