Advice From A Cartoon Princess: Snow White

In: Patrick, Random Reads, Videos

A while back, I shared with you some advice for teen girls from The Little Mermaid. Now, The Second City Network is back with another amazeballs video teaching teen girls some more important life lessons. This time, Snow White shares some life lessons based on her experiences.

From living with the seven dwarfs, to cooking & cleaning, to dealing with the evil witches, Snow White always knows just what to do. The video stars Second City grad, Danielle Uhlarik. Watch out for this funny lady – she’s hilarious and I wouldn’t be surprised if we end up seeing her as part of the SNL cast soon.

CFL Football: The 98th Grey Cup

In: Dan, Random Reads, Sports & Health

Next weekend in Edmonton, Alberta the 98th Canadian Football League’s Grey Cup game will be a repeat showdown of the Montreal Alouettes and the Saskatchewan Roughriders. A better swan song couldn’t be written for the underdog Roughriders, given the chance for redemption following last’s year Grey Cup devastating last-second loss to the Alouettes. If you follow CFL at all, you’ll remember the legendary too-man-men-on-the-field call that has haunted the Roughriders throughout the year.

In last year’s Grey Cup final Saskatchewan was in the lead 27-25 when Montreal lined up to kick a final field goal, what was to be the last play of the game. In an unreal turn of events, the field goal was wide and it looked as though Saskatchewan had clinched their fourth Grey Cup win in franchise history. Unknown to celebrating Roughriders on the sidelines, penalty flags had been tossed as the ball was kicked. The Roughrider’s had thirteen men on the field; one too many. The Alouettes were given a second chance to kick the field goal, this time Damon Duval sent the football through the uprights. The final score was 28-27 in favour of Montreal.

Thanva Tivawong redesigns one of the most iconic & ubiquitous street signs in the world. The “Sand Glass” which is inspired by the hour glass has LED lights that display a trickling down effect that shows how much time is left for the lights to change. The yellow light features a countdown timer, when the yellow light is on telling people when to stop or to get ready to go.

See how it works on the next part of the post.

Duppy Boy Ghost Attacks Caught On Video

In: Patrick, Random Reads, Videos

If you think watching Paranormal Activity 2 is scary enough, try living it! This young boy from Kingston, Jamaica is been haunted by a ghost or demon that is physically pushing him around – and it is caught on video by CVM News. The boy claims that the ghost is a friend that died a few years ago and has started appearing to him recently out of nowhere.

Not gonna lie, it really creeped me out. He’s been dubbed “Duppy Boy,” as Duppy is a Jamaican Patois word of West African origin meaning ghost or spirit. There has been a lot of buzz in his community about the encounters and the news stopped by to check it out, only to witness it first hand – twice…

Ever since its midnight release, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1” has been conjuring up some wicked dough at the box office. If it holds the momentum of the first couple days, this could be a record breaking weekend for the magical franchise. What a perfect way to say good-bye to one of the most successful series of movies ever.

If you can’t get enough of Harry Potter this weekend and want a little laugh after watching the darkest installment of the series yet, then have I got the video parody for you. Julia Bentley aka HoneyChip hails from T-Dot, Canada. She masterfully switched up the lyrics to Flo Rida & David Guetta’s hit song to give it a more Harry Potter feel. Here’s some sample lyrics:

Check my scar and they all just stare? / wizards, muggles, everywhere!? / Kill Voldy that’s the business? / All out it’s so ridiclous? / Death eaters at attention / Don’t tell I’m in the building

Had enough build-up. If you’re a Potterhead and love Flo Rida, then you’ll be heaven. Enjoy the parody below.

Facebook & MySpace Mashup

In: Gadgets & Tech, Patrick, Random Reads

Facebook continues to take over, but is helping a few old friends along the way. Facebook has teamed up with MySpace to create a personalized stream of entertainment content on MySpace that matches your Facebook “likes”. The new look of MySpace is very clean, compared to the disorganized clusterf*ck it used to be.

The smart thing is that they’ve made it really easy to get back into MySpace, because you’ve already done all the work on Facebook. I just went to MySpace.com, connected with Facebook, and in literally 3 seconds, I had a customized MySpace Page. The above image is the collage that it made based on my likes. God, how gay am I? Glee, Madonna, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Ashley Tisdale…and Vin Diesel. Hilarious.

Movember is in full swing and there are some great ‘staches being grown out there. From your Starbucks barista to your bank teller, men everywhere are trying to grow a little under their nose to raise money for Prostate Cancer Awareness and research. If this concept is new or foreign to you, let me fill you in.

Movember challenges men to change their appearance and the face of men’s health by growing a mustache. The rules are simple, start Movember 1st clean-shaven and then grow a mustache for the entire month. The mustache becomes the ribbon for men’s health, the means by which awareness and funds are raised for prostate cancer.
