Bag of Randomness

  • I never had an opportunity to attend a playoff game of any sort, and came pretty darn close this weekend, but thanks to the Rangers, these tickets will never be used.
  • Spielberg has this new movie about Abraham Lincoln coming out that will surely dominate the Oscars, but my one complaint from the previews has been the voice Daniel Day Lewis has been using to portray Lincoln.  But I recently discovered in this  Smithsonian article, the late president actually had a shrilled, high pitched voice.
  • In case you were wondering, the earliest recorded presidential voice was that of Benjamin Harrison back in 1889, and you can hear it here.
  • I always thought Glamour Shots was nothing more than photo sessions for teenage girls, but I recently got this Groupon that showcases a boudoir photo session.  I’ll be honest, I had to look up “boudoir”, but with it’s French sounding name, I had a idea it was something a bit naughty.  And apparently, you can ever get a photo session for your favorite sports team.
  • Mitt Romney debates himself – YouTube
  • Arkansas Rep. Jon Hubbard On Slavery – A ‘Blessing In Disguise’
  • In typical Snoop Dog (or Snoop Lion) style, he lists ten reasons whey he’s not voting for Romney and ten reasons why he’s voting for Obama.
  • Let NASA’s chief geoscientist take you on a haunting tour of Earth’s nocturnal landscape in this video revealing what astronauts see from the International Space Station.  
  • Per Esquire magazine, Mila Kunis is the Sexiest Woman Alive (site launches with annoying video)
  • I watched the movie Butter this weekend.  It’s a comedy about butter carving at the Iowa State Fair and has lots of stars such as Ty Burrell from “Modern Family”, Olive Wilde, Jennifer Garner, Hugh Jackman, Alicia Silverstone, Ashley Greene, Rob Corddry, and the lady that play Phyllis from “The Office”.  I’d certainly recommend it if you aren’t easily offended by stuff.
  • I caught a lot of the Bill O’Reilly and Jon Stewart debate and it was greatness, and I wish presidential debates could be more like it.
  • Two commercials that just need to end because the music they keep playing is driving me nuts – Internet Explorer: A More Beautiful Web and Samsung Galaxy Note
  • WSJ – Are too many parents distracted by mobile devices when they should be watching their kids? A recent rise in injuries, reversing the longstanding trend, has doctors worried that the answer is yes.
  • Pastor Rick Joyner expresses his hope that Mitt Romney will realize a prophecy about Mormons saving the US Constitution.
  • Pouring molten aluminum down an anthill – YouTube
