Hey, check out this video of the White House Correspondent's Dinner and skip to 11:00.


Why, it's Savannah Guthrie, NBC News White House correspondent and co-anchor of MSNBC's The Daily Rundown, acting in a little skit for the president she's supposed to be covering! Lest you think this was just found footage they threw in Daily Show-style, and former press secretary Joe Lockhart's terrible acting wasn't enough of a dead giveway, you'll notice there's no MSNBC logo, ostensibly because the people in charge of that sort of thing didn't approve it (apparently cartoon movies have more journalistic integrity than this dumb video). Someone should give her all the Peabodys in the world.

There's this new thing called "cinemagraphs" which are just animated gifs that are "classy," which is the same distinction that separates "graphic novels" from "comic books" and "action figures" from "dolls." Naturally some people are falling over themselves to herald it as a NEW ART FORM that's REINVENTING THE GIF. I just think they're hilariously tacky, like holographic baseball cards or a DVD menu. I mean, look at this. Come on.

So it looks like Google Video - the forgotten YouTube rival that's now just a video search engine - is deleting all their videos at the end of this month. For like five months in 2006, Google Video was superior to YouTube, but it never got the buzz nor the popularity. Luckily, all my favorite Google Videos appear to have already been reuploaded elsewhere and can easily be found via search.

Au revoir Google Video, we had some good times patriot

Something Awful highlighted a bunch of surreal tweets from weird spammy ebooks accounts and there's one that's so amazing that I feel it needs to be isolated and put into its own environment to be fully enjoyed:

Say what you will about AOL, but most of the sites in their portfolio have slick, eye-pleasing designs (examples: homepage, Comics Alliance, Joystiq, even Mapquest somehow). I just looked at the Huffington Post to see if it's been redesigned to follow suit (answer: I don't think so?) and holy cow, how does anyone manage to read this thing?? Their front page is so generic-looking and cluttered and everything clashes with everything else, and it goes on for like ten rows more than it should, and their article pages look like someone vomited a bunch of sharing widgets all over the place. Yeah, I know this isn't a real controversial opinion and that it could've been made any time between now and 2005, but aside from the occasional linked article (post? Is this behemoth considered a "blog?") I've somehow managed to avoid it over the years. Oh, also the incredibly vain name sounds like a made-up newspaper from Richard Scarry's Busytown and the attempts at shortening it (HuffPost! HuffPo!) somehow make it worse

That said, I hope AOL and Huffington Post find a way to make money from content because, if they can't, the internet is doomed

I was trying to find a gif of this but couldn't find one, so I had to make it myself:

Fun Facts From Wikipedia

Steve Forbes:

  • He did not come close to securing the Republican nomination, despite winning the Arizona and Delaware Primaries in 1996 and getting some significant shares of the vote in other primaries. His stiff campaigning style was a major factor; Time Magazine called his stumping a "comedy-club impression of what would happen if some mad scientist decided to construct a dork robot."[11]
