Except for the terrifying little Monster mascot at the end. Also- that street looked sorta filthy. I will suffer to be in a flash mob, but I'm not sure I want to be covered in little kid urine and old cotton candy.

Really- should you own a dog in the first place?
Product Site full of helpful FAQ's and excellent grammar here. See below!
Can owner use the "PooTrap" always when walking their dog out?
When dog is having diarrhea, or if the owner just don't feel like taking the "PooTrap" off the dog, feel free to keep the "PooTrap" on the dog.

I can't even begin to discuss how awesome this woman and her cat are. I lost it when she starts talking about "droolers not being someone that fixes a watch", but I couldn't even watch when she starts singing to that drugged cat.

Emo non-threatening undead love is also low-hanging fruit for Hallmark, who have a series of greeting cards covering all the important vampire holidays... Valentines Day, Halloween (!) and Birthdays.
E! Online shows the line here: please go take a look so you can see "Let's go trick or treating in Forks, Washington! I hear there's a lot of eye-candy there!"

That's right, Fonzipanners... we all know I love me some flash mobs. One question... why can't flashmob producers learn to operate a freaking camera? You're clearly planning this well in advance. Take some time to scope out some good locations for hidden cameras. Plus, there's this thing called a ZOOM lens... use it! This is a promotion that occurred in Times Square last week to promote Chris Kattan's new show on IFC, Bollywood Hero. Is he Indian? Whatever. Apparently he plays himself as he goes to Mumbai for a leading role in a Bollywood film.
Sorta wish I got IFC... that looks like it has promise. Plus, now that we have a few weeks between So You Think You Can Dance seasons (September 9th!), I have a glaring hole in my Wednesday and Thursday night tv schedules. You can only watch so many re-run episodes of House to fill the void.
While we're on the subject of So You Think You Can Dance... I think we've all watched the finale... what did you all think? Once Janette was out of the running for top 4, I lost my vote for number one. I wanted a girl to win, as in the 5 years the show's been running, there was only one female winner, the deserving Sabra. So in one respect, I was happy to see versatile, though less talented Jeanine win.
Let's be honest- Janette should have won. She had the personality, the talent and (I thought) the following to win it all...however, I think the judges praise lost her the crown. Once someone starts becoming a star in the judges eyes, it's like they lose their shine for the audience.
All in all, I'm glad Evan didn't win. He was so outmatched on the stage, and I think even he knew it.
In honor of Janette, my favorite dance with her in it is below, a glaring omission from the finale's recap of the best dances of the season.

Gliese 581D is a planet about 20 light years away in the Libra constellation (groovy, baby!), and is a planet that scientists postulate could possibly support life. Whether it's punch through your stomach and eat your brains life or ET phone home life, well, they just aren't sure.
So why not invite the general population to write messages to whatever may be living on Gliese 581D? HelloFromEarth.net is a site that does just that, switching messages from the public into binary code and will beam them to outerspace, at which time we will shortly become a slave race.
The messages range from the clinically depressed to the totally stoned to the pretty awesome, some of my favorites are below:

Hi-dilly, ho-dilly, neighboreenos!
Hi hi, my housemate has given up on all males on our planet. If you have half a brain and something to prod her with, she'll be pleased to meet you. Toodles,
Hello Aliens. Do you have genetalia? I hope so.

We need help, we are being destroyed by leaders whos only concern is lining their own pockets, assuming you can read english. Greetings
We are destroying our planet, and are too selfish to stop. We need your help. Please come quickly.
Heads up: on our planet, it is considered rude to introduce yourself to new neighbours without offering delicious cake or a hamper of edible goods.
Hello from Earth, please visit. We have cookies.
'ssup bros? I'm a libra too. Respect.
You don't understand any Earth language let alone English so it doesn't matter what I write.
Our planet's idea of Miss Universe is thin, dumb blondes. Perhaps you can diversify the pool.

According to the Associated Press via Taiwan News (what? I like to diversify), today is the "best drink" final round of the World Cocktail Competition in Berlin. 100 bartenders from 52 countries compete in rounds such as "Classic" (plain old mixing) and "Flair" (what Mini Me is doing in the clip up there).
Cheers! Come to Chicago! MAKE ME DRUNK!

Meet Bebe Gloton, the Spanish sensation that's sweeping the nation, according to the Daily Mail.
Anyone else totally have the creepers from this video? Even the little girl doesn't seem to be having much fun. The little apron with the petal nipples? *shudder* Again, I know it's natural, blah blah blah. But this is one toy I wouldn't want my kid pulling out at the Steak & Shake, you know?

Who else is going to die that is a sharp, painful reminder of my own mortality? So help me god, if it's Wil Wheaton, I'm never leaving the house again. I'll just be sitting there, watching an endless loop of Star Trek, the Next Generation episodes and crying about how this was never supposed to happen to Gordie.
When wondering aloud why this entire movie seems to be filmed in Sunset-o-vision, my very own mother tossed out a salient point: "Well, the whole book is set at bedtime." Way to get deep and symbolic on us, mom!
I am growing increasingly impatient for this movie to be released. Each preview makes the hairs on my arms stand up and I get a little teary.
Apparently, I'll have to go sans children, as my suggestion that I escort my nieces was served a roundhouse kick to the teeth. Oh well. Who ever wanted to deal with sticky kids in a movie theater anyway?

You know I love fun times on the interwebs. Kill time by making yourself into a zombie at Ugo.com. You can also SuperHero Yourself using their incredibly detailed HeroMachine.
I saw this guy and his pitbull on TMZ last week... and when I looked for the video- saw this longer and far cooler video. Check it out- it fills me with smiles. And the knowledge that Daisy would merely use me as a launching pad to get closer to the squirrels in the trees.

Guhhhhh I hate the sound of nail clippers. It seriously makes me sick to my stomach. Thus- I hate this commercial. That part where they cut 5 nails at the same time? *shudder* Also- they keep dumping out the nail clip reservoir. ON THE TABLE. Blecchhh... it's like they're TRYING to gross me out. Are nail clippers really that difficult to use? Well, I suppose if you're old.
Get your Sure Clips here. Be sure to tell them this commercial gives you nightmares.
