Weekly Blog-O-Sphere Tid-Bits – July 29, 2006

blog-o-sphere.png
Another week has passed… Here are some interesting tid-bits I came across this past week.

At Life After Coffee, they have stumbled across a man who makes a very fun and interesting kite.

At the Web Pen, he has posted a video about the FCC that everyone must see!

The Malcontent has posted a video of the hilarious events that took place during a live broadcast showing how easy it is to cut the chain off a bike.

Fastlad has a video interview with Fred Phelps, Jr. posted where a reporter tries to make a pass at the crazy old man!

The next one, I warn you is not for the shy… This is a hilarious blog that Dan sent me this week. This guy cheated on his boyfriend, and his boyfried’s punishment is that he has to post a picture of his butt everyday for a year.

And Dan starts his new blog this week, starting off with his frustrations of MySpace!

The WB Must Be Swimming In It’s Watery Grave

So this past Tuesday, I came across a new show on iTunes. Having now prior knowledge, other than it was about the Superhero Aquaman, I decided to go ahead and download it. After watching it, I was curious to see what channel it would be showing and when. When to my surprise, I found out that it was a pilot that would never air.

With Lou Diamond Phillips and Ving Rhames, it’s got to be a success, right? Well apparently not to the new CW network that is replacing the WB and UPN this fall. Slated to premiere this Sept on then WB, Aquaman is from the creators of Smallville. But the CW has decided not to pick the show up before it even airs. Given the popularity of Smallville, I must say I am surprised. Even more so after watching the episode. While not the best show I have ever watched, it certainly was not a bomb in my opinion.

Well, I don’t know about CW, but I am sure that Warner Brothers is very disappointed by this decision. Especially now, because since it was added to the iTunes lineup, it has become the #1 downloaded show. Maybe this will be a lesson to networks to test a show in a venue like iTunes to see the reception before canceling it.

The WB passed earlier this year on a series “Nobody’s Watching” that has garnered a lot of buzz on YouTube. I have watched a few episodes myself, and saw potential in the premise. Well, apparently NBC has seen this, and has decided to give it another look, and possibly pick it up for a replacement series. Given this, maybe there is still hope out there for Aquaman someday.

What do you get when you cross Legos, Darth Vader and John Williams? You get Darth conducting the Imperial March in a way that is just to good to pass up!

It’s the Month of Outings in the Arts World! Kudos to Lance Bass

Just last week, I blogged about the coming out of Former Lead Singer of Savage Garden, and now Solo Artist Darren Hayes. Well today, the trend of singers outing themselves continue. Lance Bass, one of the former members of N’SYNC has confirmed he is gay. I have to admit, like Hayes, I am not surprised by this. He says he was never ashamed of who he was, but was afraid that outing himself would be the end of N’SYNC. Since he had the careers of four others to think about, he just didn’t do it. He is now in a committed relationship with The Amazing Race’s Reichen Lehmkuhl.

In Bass’ own words:

“The thing is, I’m not ashamed — that’s the one thing I want to
say,” Bass says. “I don’t think it’s wrong, I’m not devastated
going through this. I’m more liberated and happy than I’ve been
my whole life. I’m just happy.”

I am glad to hear he is happy! He always was my favorite of the five. He has always seemed to be the most real of them, even if the shyest. Now we now why! Congratulations, and I hope you have a long and happy relationship with Reichen! Now let’s get you into space! Be the first out astronaut!

Is it a Bird? Is it a Plane? No! It’s Mighty Mouse Sans Wires

Yes, today, Apple has released a wireless version of what quickly became my favorite mouse! The Mighty Mouse! I bought mine last year as soon as they were available in stores! The only thing that I didn’t like was going back to a wired mouse. I knew it was only a matter of time before they released it.

In this version, they have switched to a laser guided system for precision tracking. Another nice feature, is it’s ability to operate on either one or two batteries, enabling you to pack later when traveling. It utilizes bluetooth for a secured connection to the computer, and has a 30 ft. range.

At a price of $69, it is comparable to the price of other Bluetooth mice! I will have to be asking for one this Christmas!
