Gone Fishing

After more than a year of Monday through Friday posts here at 'I Think It's Interesting', ASBLACKASOBAMA is giving himself and the news crew at 'ITII' a much needed vacation.

We appreciate all your wonderful comments and taking the time out of your day to read our little musings.... As Paul Rudd famously said in 'I Love You, Man' - 'I will see you there or I will see you on another time'.... 'Laters on the menjay'.

Busboy Beats NBA Stars At Pop-A-Shot

Jimmy Kimmel has discovered a busboy with an amazing talent. Ricardo, employed at the poplar eatery 'Barney's Beanery', is the master of 'Pop-A-Shot'.... During the NBA playoffs, Jimmy Kimmel has had Ricardo compete and demolish the BIGGEST STARS in the NBA.... LeBron James, Charles Barkley, Kobe Bryant, Lamar Odom and Carmelo Anthony.... All of them crushed by the 'Pop-A-Shot' skills of Ricardo the Busboy.

After destroying Carmelo Anthony rather handily at a game of 'Pop-A-Shot' after Game 6 of the NBA Finals, Ricardo was led out of the 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' studios and presented with his brand new 2011 Ford Mustang!

Enjoy Game 7 of the NBA Finals tonight! Either the Lakers or the Celtics will be the NBA Champions tonight!

Like OMG Baby

DJ Earworm is back! Don't let the name fool you, he's very talented.... I've posted a couple of his mashups before, his end of the year mashups in 2008 (Viva La Pop) and 2009 (Blame It On The Pop), where he takes the Top 25 Billboard Hits and their videos in their respective years and 'mashes them together'.

This time, he's created a 'mashup' for Capital FM’s Summertime Ball in London, titled 'Like OMG.... He took the music of all fifteen artists performing at the venue and 'mashed them'....It should just be a giant ball of sound, but it all comes out quite nicely.

Here's the list of the songs he includes in the mashup:

Alexandra Burke - All Night Long
Cheryl Cole - Fight For This Love
Chipmunk feat. Esmee Denters - Until You Were Gone
Dizzee Rascal - Bonkers
Ellie Goulding - Starry Eyed
Jason Derulo - In My Head
JLS - One Shot
Justin Bieber - Baby
Ke$ha - Tik Tok
Pixie Lott - Mama Do
Rihanna - Rude Boy
Scouting For Girls - This Ain’t a Love Song
Tinie Tempah - Pass Out
Usher feat. Will.I.Am - OMG
The Wanted - All Time Low

And here's the awesome video!

He's not paid to put these together, so you can download the music mashups from his site for free!

Toyz Noize Is The Bees Knees

I know I post about this guy too much, but love the videos he makes! I posted the 'Hook', 'Up', 'Terminator 2' and 'Gardyn' remixes from from Fagottron and POGO here at 'I Think It's Interesting' here before.... (Hint: Click the names of the previous remixes to see those posts....)

In this new video, he takes video and sounds from 'Toy Story' and adds a few extra cymbals and a sine wave bass (I'm not sure what a sine wave bass is, but is sounds cool) to make another amazing remix. Just in time, as Disney Pixar's 'Toy Story 3' opens in theaters this weekend!

This man is ridiculously talented, and I highly recommend you check out all his videos!

Hidden Messages In Logos That I Should Have Noticed

I've been on this Earth for 30 years, and I must admit that I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer.... How have I missed so many things that have been staring right back at me?

I give myself credit, I noticed the arrow in the FedEx logo.... Not at first, but now I never miss the arrow.... See it? Right there.... Between the E and the x.... Now that I've recognized the arrow, almost every time I see a FedEx truck, I see the arrow and have to adjust my eyes/brain to notice the FedEx logo....

After doing a wee bit of research, I found a couple of other hidden things in logos that I've never noticed....

How did I never see these?

Toblerone Chocolate - I enjoy chocolate.... I have a 4 foot tall Toblerone chocolate bar, the thing is huge, and I never noticed the bear in the logo.... He's in the mountain.... I've literally seen this logo my entire life.... I've never seen the bear.

Hershey's Kisses - There's a chocolate kiss between the K and the I in the word KISSES.... How have I been so blind?

Goodwill - The smiley face is a lowercase g? My mind is blown.

Milwaukee Brewers - I've watched baseball my entire life. MY ENTIRE LIFE! I've actually been to see the San Francisco Giants play the Milwaukee Brewers at Candlestick Park in San Francisco when I was younger.... I have never, NEVER, noticed that the Milwaukee Brewers baseball mitt logo is actually an 'm and a b'....

I'm going to go hang my head in shame....

Will BP Ever Stop The Oil Spill?

I'm sure you've all heard about the tiny oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.... The news media reports that even though BP is currently capturing approximately 630,000 gallons of oil a day, hundreds of thousands of gallons of oil are still being released into the ocean....

Since it's been incredibly busy around here (knock on wood), I'm going to leave you with two videos....

The first video is a funny little sketch from the Upright Citizens Brigade comedy group showing how BP deals with 'spills'.... The second video is a montage of amazing photos of the oil spill, while politicians are shown screaming 'Drill Baby, Drill'!

Can You Guess This TV Theme? #49 - Answer

Congratulations to Patrick Tillett from 'Patrick Tillett - Extremely Overdue' for correctly guessing that this week's TV theme is from 'Felicity'! I don't mean to offend you in any way Pat, but when you posted the answer, I had to do a double take when I saw your name.... 'Pat Tillett watched Felicity? I did not see that coming....' I think you may have been the only Vietnam Veteran to have watched 'Felicity'.... By the way people.... If you haven't check out Pat's blog, do it.... It's amazing! His amazing stories about the life he's lived, the amazing Vietnam posts, and the amazing photography are.... well, amazing. The man knows how to tell a story.... Ok, now, onto this week's theme....

'Felicity' was a powerhouse from the get-go.... Created by two of the brightest minds in Hollywood, J.J. Abram`s and Matt Reeves, and produced by two of the biggest names in Hollywood, Ron Howard and Brian Grazer, 'Felicity' ran for only four seasons, following Felicity throughout her college years....

Keri Russell plays Felicity Porter, a young high school graduate who decides to go against her parents' dreams of a fully paid Stanford Pre-Med education to follow a boy, Ben Covington (Scott Speedman), to the University of New York.

Felicity gets to New York and learns about herself, and develops relationships and friendships throughout her four years in college. Struggling in a love triangle with Ben and Noel (Scott Foley, originally playing Felicity's Resident Advisor).... Creating friendships with friends
Julie and Elena (played by Amy Jo Johnson and Tangi Miller).... P.S. For those of you who recognize the name Amy Jo Johnson, but just can't remember who she is, she's the original Pink Power Ranger!

During the series, you're introduced to Sean Blumberg (played by Greg Grunberg, who on a side note is a childhood friend of the great J.J. Abrams, and has been cast in many of Abrams' projects.... He was in Alias, Mission Impossible III, and he was the pilot who crashed the plane into the island on 'LOST'! All three are Abrams' works....), Ben's original roommate and the guy who comes up with all sorts of crazy new ideas (e.g. The Before and After Restaurant - Where they only serve appetizers and desserts)....

I could go on, but there were so many characters, and each character plays such a pivotal role in the show.... I've already put most of you to sleep.... I'm not even going to talk about Donald Faison and
Jennifer Garner being on the show.... Or even Tyra Banks' short run on the show....

Anyway.... On to what everybody knows about the show.... The controversy about what killed the ratings. The Haircut vs. The Network's Decision To Move The Show To A New Night.... The producers had the idea to snip Keri's lovely locks, to symbolize a fresh new start after a breakup with Ben.... After the 'haircut heard around the world', and the time change, the ratings decreased significantly and never fully recovered.
