Diatribes containing random web goodies!

Weekly Booty: June 24, 2005

All apologies for the lack of booty lately.. I have no excuse other than, I’ve been lazy. As you can tell, I’ve not posted in quite a while, but thankfully my fellow comrads have been able to keep the spirit of the Diatribe alive with their wonderful posts. So, after a 3 week hiatus, here’s some booty…

THE CROWN JEWEL:
Google is many different things to many different people, but it’s still the best search engine on the Web. Mort’s Picture Archive has written a song about google, and I thought I’d share it with you.

OTHER PRECIOUS GEMS:
Switch! – Forget about switching to a mac, switch to the Dark side.



Harry who? – The J.K. Rowling books have made one name very famous.

Super Doppler – TV Stations gone wild.

Tom takes on Oprah – Tom Cruise is all the rage.. and raging.

Man on the Moon – Some people have too much time on their hands. Moon-like gravity on Planet Earth.

Weekly Booty: May 27, 2005

It’s been a crazy week here.. My favorite is by far this video from Boston.com. So, let’s waste some time and get some Booty.

THE CROWN JEWEL:
This week, I’ve added a featured item, only because it’s too good to pass up. This is a video from the North Cambridge Family Opera’s performance of ‘Space Opera’ – A take on Star Wars. This particular video is the introduction of Chewbacca, and it’s priceless. (Source: Boston.com)

OTHER PRECIOUS GEMS:

Jedi Song – Great tune, even better animation.

Japanese Toilets! – If only we had commercials like this here in the states..

Stunt City – We just have ads like this..

Ringtone Dancer – Strangely interesting. My favorite has to be #4.

Guinness Pops – Even though it may not feel like summer, it’s on its way. Never too cold for Guiness Pops!

Puma Store Catalog – Ingenious way to display online catalogs, for those that still like flipping pages. Too bad they still don’t have any shoes in my size!

Game time! – All inuendos aside, try to get your nuts past the squirrels. (High Score 710).

Squirt! – Is this REALLY a kids toy? C’mon.

Weekly Booty: May 20, 2005

I was starting to get a little nervous this week, because I only managed to collect a few items for the booty over the week.. it wasn’t until today, courtesy of webzen, that I was able to grab some final goodies..

On to the booty:

Logo Madness – Pick the brand that matches the alphabet letter. (My best was the 2nd Version).

Delivr – Flickr + E-mail = Delivr. Send Flickr Postcards to friends.

Tin Foil Hats – They’re trying to read your mind. Better wear one.

Mind Reading – With or without a tinfoil hat, Darth can still read your mind.

Creep – Radio Head’s Classic tune done in a low morale kind of way.

Sock Monkeys – What is life really about, they wonder…

FES – The Foreign Exchange Student and his mysterious Stuitcase

An oldy but a goodie – Weebl & Bob jam out.

Eureka! I’ve got it!

According to Wikipedia, Booty is described as:

Booty is something both valuable and acquired by force or daring.

The proceeds of criminal activity are sometimes referred to as booty, especially from piratical exploits.

Synonyms include plunder (from an enemy), loot (from piracy), a prize (won by daring), pillage, swag, and (originally African-American slang, but now in common usage) buttocks or vagina or sex (especially of a desireable female). The term is also used as a reference to women in Blaxploitation films of the 1970s. Made famous by the phrase “It’s My Duty to Please that Booty!”.

While, these links are definitely valuable and worthwhile, they weren’t really acquired by force or daring. And they definitely aren’t the proceeds of criminal activity. But that’s just semantics, right?

So, without further ado, onto the booty.
