Whacky Wednesday: Hip-Hop Medley – Stylophone Beatbox

When digging for yesterday’s YouTube video I found this one. Classic Hip-Hop medley using the Stylophone Beatbox.

Whacky Wednesday: The Engineer And The Manager

I am bringing this back this joke again because it is required. Deal with it.

A man is flying in a hot air balloon and realizes he is lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below. He lowers the balloon further and shouts: “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised my friend I would meet him half an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.”

The man below says: “Yes. You are in a hot air balloon, hovering approximately 30 feet above this field. You are between 40 and 42 degrees N. latitude, and between 58 and 60 degrees W. longitude.”

“You must be an engineer,” says the balloonist.

“I am,” replies the man. “How did you know?”

“Well,” says the balloonist, “everything you have told me is technically correct, but I have no idea what to make of your information, and the fact is I am still lost.

“The man below says, “You must be a manager.”

“I am,” replies the balloonist, “but how did you know?”

“Well,” says the man, “you don’t know where you are, or where you are going. You have made a promise which you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve your problem. The fact is you are in the exact same position you were in before we met, but now it is somehow my fault.”

Been here, enough said.

YouTube Tuesday – How To Be A Hockey Player

Remember that time I played A-grade inline hockey? I may now be the one with too much team spirit…or the one that chirps too much.

YouTube Tuesday – Newsroom Rapper’s Delight

Jimmy Fallon’s editing team must have had a crazy time putting this together. NBC Nightly News managing editor and anchor Brian Williams raps The Sugar Hill Gang’s classic “Rapper’s Delight”

OK, the FaceBook app for WordPress is rubbish, so here is a post the is primarily to try a different option. Oh, and the track and film clip are funny too…

YouTube Favorite – Jimmy Kimmel and Bad Christmas Presents

I have just added a FaceBook publishing plugin, so I guess I should post something to test it. If it work, I will use it on Loaded Trolley which, by the way, is live now.

 Just kidding!

I made this little mock-up as part of a Christmas present for someone who wanted Call of Duty MW3. I put the game is the bottom of a larger box and filled it with packing peanuts. This was in the box at the top so it was the first things the gift receiver saw when opening the present. I guess I could have timed this better and gotten these pics out of April 1st, but time got away from me.

For the record, I have never played any COD games nor do I have any interest in playing any COD games. I may be a nerd, but I am not that kind of nerd. Maybe that means I am not such a nerd….or not.

The Dirty Underwear Dilemma

Once again it has been a while since I have been here. Good thing I don’t have any fans.

I have been left at home alone for the week to fend for myself whilst the chef/housekeeper/dog walker/drink wench/entertainment has taken the child to Cairns for BMX nationals. Now this has left me with a dilemma when I looked in my underwear drawer this morning. I currently appear to have 5 days worth of underwear to last 9 days.

So I brainstormed up a few potential solutions and threw together an options matrix (sorry, no 5-phase on this one 😉 ).If you are having trouble reading the options matrix, click here to see a larger version. My ‘Big-3’ metrics on this issue are;

  • Cost – what will the impact be to my bank account considering the potential nett upside/downside
  • Time – how much time could be lost or saved
  • Quality – will the result have a potential positive or negative outcome

My assessment is based on a basic red/yellow/green status being applied to the options based on my own judgement. For those that don’t grasp the R/Y/G status, red means I judge the option as being poor for achieving the metric, green is good and yellow is in the middle somewhere.  If you don’t agree with the R/Y/G status applied or the comments I have made for the option vs. the metric, feel free to make a comment on this post below.

I now ask you, the public, to assist in determining the best course of action going forward. Please review the options matrix below and select the best option in the poll. And do it quickly or you may encounter me later in the week having chosen a weak option of my own volition.
