President Obama On Google Hangouts – Valentines Day

The current President of the United States, Barack Obama will be on Google+ to answers questions after the State of the Union presentation.

obama google hangout

Definitely something to boast about, Google announced that the president will be holding his second Hangout on Thursday, February the 14th at 4:50pm EST. This get together will allow Americans to submit any questions regarding the address to Congress on Tuesday night or other issues right on the White House YouTube channel! There will also be several other respected panel members who discuss significant daily concerns online.

Interested parties can submit either a text based question or a video to the President. People can then vote on which questions they feel the President should answer up until 11:59pm EST Wednesday, February 13th. Those whose questions are picked will actually get to ask the President their inquiry in real time during the Google Hangout.

If you’re looking for a good question or want to stay on top of current concerns then it may be wise to watch the President’s State of the Union speech tomorrow at 9pm EST on YouTube.

Obama’s first Hangout was over a year ago on January 30th, 2012 and the social network’s team was quite nervous about the session exclaiming that you can’t just walk into the White House and set up computer equipment. There were a few glitches in the beginning but the public broadcast ended up being successful with a running time of just over 49 minutes.

This Google Hangout session can be found on either the White House Google+ page or on their YouTube channel.

New Pirate Bay Documentary! (TPB AFK)

The Pirate Bay – Away From Keyboard

Companies and governments alike have been trying to extinguish internet pirate’s for as long as they’ve been around. Simon Klose, a Swedish music/documentary filmmaker WANTS you to pirate his flick!

The Pirate Bay Logo

If you don’t know what The Pirate Bay (TPB) is or at least heard of it, then you’ve been seriously deprived of a world of almost limitless media. People for years have used TPB to download all of their movies, albums, TV shows and software. It’s not that they actually have all the files on their servers but that they are essentials a giant database that links to the files. It’s also the most popular and respected torrent website.

The documentary covers the tales of Pirate Bay administrators Gottfrid Svartholm Warg, Fredrik Neji and Peter Sunde as they deal with their Sweden court case in 2009 regarding civil and criminal copyright laws. After conviction they are led to live life “away from keyboard”. The film can be bought or seen for free on YouTube/Pirate Bay torrent.

“The cool thing is that you guys are going to be part of the premiere.… We’re streaming the film online, for free. You can download it, you can share it, you can remix it… It’s all up to you,” said Klose. “I’m doing this because I believe – from a personal perspective – I want my films to be seen by as many people as possible, so my problem is that a normal copyright would become an obstacle between me and my audience.”

New Star Wars Movie – J.J. Abrams Directing

It was a scary day for most Star Wars fans when it was announced that the franchise was being sold to Disney. I thought it was a joke to be honest. That’s the last company I pictured taking it and I certainly hope it doesn’t turn into more of a kids series than what we’ve become accustomed to. Disney acquired Lucasfilm for $4 billion in cash and stock. It will be making the 7th Star Wars movie due for a 2015 release.

Reports say the helm of the new film is to be J.J. Abrams (Lost, Super 8, Star Trek [The Movie]). Initially Abrams himself thought he would be seeing the new film “as a paying moviegoer!” but apparently those tables have turned. He’ll be finishing up his latest movie Star Trek Into Darkness as a director on May 17th.

Last October in a press release announcing the acquisition of Lucasfilm said, “For the past 35 years, one of my greatest pleasures has been to see Star Wars passed from one generation to the next. It’s now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers.”

It will be extremely interesting to see what the outcome of the new film and most likely series will entail. Here’s to hoping it doesn’t bomb and new life is breathed into the franchise many of us grew up adoring. All eyes on you Abrams and Disney!

Lance Armstrong Falls For Admitting To Doping – Confession With Oprah

FILE: Lance Armstrong Stripped of Tour de France Titles And Banned From Cycling Le Tour 2010 - Stage Thirteen

Lance Edward Armstrong, the American professional road racing cyclist has admitted to using performance enhancing drugs. The former star won 7 Tour de France races in a row between 1999 – 2005. The reason behind his wins? Contrary to what he claimed for several years it wasn’t natural skill and ability. No, sadly it was by doping because of his aggressive desire to win. Lance secured all of his victories by allegedly using multiple drugs including:

  • Erythropoietin (EPO) – Used by athletes to increase the number of red blood cells in the circulatory system that are available to carry oxygen.
  • Blood Transfusions – Generally involve extraction of a particular athletes blood and then re-infusion before a competition to increase the oxygen carrying red blood cells.
  • Testosterone – Can increase muscle mass and strength.
  • Human Growth Hormone (hGH) – Can increase strength, lean muscle mass, weight loss and recovery.
  • Corticosteroids – Reduce inflammation, assist in recovery and provide burst of energy.

The man has definitely fallen from public grace but will he get back up one day?

Check out the confession video:

Workaholics Making Waves On Comedy Central

One of my buddies told me about this show. He even threw a clip on exclaiming that I’d be hooked. At first I thought it looked like a low budget show that would make me laugh once per episode and then I’d forget everything about it. Nope! It actually hits home pretty good because it’s exactly the same kind of humor all my friends joke around with. It’s ridiculous stupid comedy but I mean that in a good way! The show stars with Blake (Blake Anderson), Adam (Adam DeVine), and Anders (Anders Holm) working at a call centre as arguably the worst employees.

It takes a little bit to get going so if you judge it from the very start only you’re missing out on some pretty spectacular stuff. Once it’s rolling the show shines with a realistic feel of stoners realizing they need to get a job in the real world. I can’t even count how many times Adam made me crack up pronouncing words wrong or having a hilarious quick remark. These are normal guys that have fun and it shows. Even more so they’re pretty humble considering the success they have received and that will continue to grow.

If you’ve watched the movie “Pitch Perfect” you will have already seen DeVine as Bumper with “The Treble Makers” doing his thing just as naturally as I’ve come to expect. Even with that movie I thought at first, “Oh no a musical?”. Lucky for me it wasn’t the typical music and was definitely aimed at a younger audience that loves the party lifestyle.

To be clear this is the type of show that appeals to humor stemming from: pee, poo, alcohol, shrooms, stupidity, fun and carelessness and it works well. It’s not necessarily original and it has the low budget cheap feel but it actually works in it’s favor. Comedy Central made a wise decision picking these guys up from their online skit videos titled “Mail Order Comedy” back in 2010. It’s also a great example that the web can actually land you a better spot than YouTube.

workaholics-pool-group

I’d say if you like crude shows with silly antics reminiscent of young adults being ridiculous, you should watch this show. Don’t just watch the first episode and say, “I mean it’s okay but I don’t see what the fuss is about”. Watch at least a few episodes, if your not already watching the entire season without stopping THEN you can pass it up. Wishing these guys the best of luck and looking forward to seeing more of them not only in their show but in films and other productions. Make some popcorn, settle in, power up Workaholics and make the night a “tight butthole”!

People Take A Bieber Cleaver To Themselves Over Smoking Reefer

bieber_cut

Just to start I want to clarify that I am not a fan of Justin Bieber whatsoever. In fact, many times I’d hear a song on the radio and ask people what chick is singing this and then be shocked to discover it’s actually a guy. All that aside I’m not hating on him because realistically there’s TONS of artists that have songs written for them or are told to perform a certain style. I guess it doesn’t help that in the beginning of his career he obviously hadn’t hit puberty hence why everyone who didn’t know him thought it was a girl. Everyone listens to different genres of music and that’s okay. Everyone SHOULD listen to different genres or at least I mean you should listen to whatever YOU want to listen to and you enjoy. A lot of people feel like they have to get into a particular artist or type of music because all of their friends do. To each their own.

So Justin smoked weed? Oh no, what are we going to do?! Your Uncle Bob, father/mother, sister/brother, cousin, teacher and countless others might smoke too? Oh, that’s okay. Get real. People smoke and drive and don’t kill other people but thousands of us are killed each month from drinking and driving accidents. Alcohol is legal though. Weed was put here on the earth naturally like many plants. The big difference is that it’s a plant that you can use unaltered and not man-made. Sure you can consider it a drug because yes it is mind altering just the same as coffee is a drug (yet only one of those will land you at one of the main celebrity rehabs). I think the big problem is that it’s pinned the way it is and put on display as an evil gateway drug that will corrupt your life. Once again I’m pretty sure alcohol has WAYYYYYY worse effects. Never heard of somebody overdosing on marijuana. It’s even used and proven to be effective in medical treatments.

Crazed fans or “Beliebers” are outraged and apparently find that the only way to solve this so-called “problem” is to cut into their own flesh. Now THAT’S a problem. I can’t pretend to understand why someone cuts themselves because I obviously have never even thought about it since it seems so selfish and beyond absurd but I don’t need to take a razor to myself to know that it’s wrong and NO ONE should be doing it. You need help and a lot of people would be glad to aid you. To be so upset that someone else famous or not famous does something that you don’t is ridiculous. Should I take a knife to myself because Joey drinks, and not just that, he drinks WINE?! Realistically he should be able to do a drug that actually WILL devastate your body without people making a big deal out of it. It’s his life not yours. It’s not fair to put that pressure on someone and it’s unhealthy to put any one person on a pedestal in the first place. You will always be disappointed.

Now I know many people will take this contradictory or say something along the lines of, “You said to each their own and it’s his life not yours, so why shouldn’t someone cut themselves”? You’re right, you have all the capability to do it but should you do it at all? Even worse should you do it because of someone else? What does it truly accomplish? If you think your life is so bad or that there’s nothing left, you’re flat out WRONG. If you feel like you’re at the lowest point in human existence than all you can do is go up. Learn an instrument, start a business, heck make a blog! You can accomplish something greater in your life if you’re around compared to not. Maybe you’ll save someone who felt like you did once upon a time. Now THAT is an accomplishment.

I guess what I’m trying to say about cutting yourself and the whole blaming Justin Bieber for smoking weed is: “That shit is wack”.
