2010's top 25 songs, mashed up into 5 minutes



DJ Earworm continues his tradition of creating an audio retrospective of the year that was. This year's included songs are:
Ke$ha - Tik Tok
Lady Antebellum - Need You Now
Train - Hey, Soul Sister
Katy Perry Featuring Snoop Dogg - California Gurls
Usher Featuring will.i.am - OMG
B.O.B. Featuring Hayley Williams - Airplanes
Eminem Featuring Rihanna - Love the Way You Lie
Lady Gaga - Bad Romance
Taio Cruz - Dynamite
Taio Cruz Featuring Ludacris - Break Your Heart
B.O.B. Featuring Bruno Mars - Nothin' On You
Enrique Iglesias Featuring Pitbull - I Like It
Young Money Featuring Lloyd - Bedrock
Jason Derulo - In My Head
Rihanna - Rude Boy
Lady Gaga Featuring Beyonce - Telephone
Katy Perry - Teenage Dream
Bruno Mars - Just the Way You Are

The Black Eyed Peas - Imma Be
Jay-Z + Alicia Keys - Empire State of Mind
Usher Featuring Pitbull - DJ Got Us Fallin' In Love
Travie McCoy Featuring Bruno Mars - Billionaire
Eminem - Not Afraid
Iyaz - Replay

Thankfully, there's not much Lady Gaga and Black Eyed Peas (hey, I love them as much as the next person but you can only take that much, you know?) and absolutely zero Justin Bieber (sorry, but haven't we all had enough of 'Baby Baby' by now?)

This mash up is pretty good but I think I enjoyed the 2009 edition better.

Malaysia defeats Indonesia, wins the AFF Suzuki Cup



The Azkals can take a bit of comfort in knowing that the Indonesian team didn't win the finals. It should get cracking on learning better offense though. The Indonesians got two goals in for game two but that wasn't enough to overhaul the lead that Malaysia had over them (a 3-0 shutout in the first game).

Defence is one thing and it seems the Azkals got that down pat. Now, to get those shots in! We've got some time before the next outings in February 2011 vs Mongolia.

I wait, along with millions of newly created soccer fans, with eager anticipation.

3 Star Wars movies in 2D and under 2 minutes



Let Jeremy Messersmith's hauntingly beautiful Tatooine and Eric Power's 2D construction paper animation show you the story of the original Star Wars trilogy in under two minutes.

Here are the lyrics (in case you were curious):

Twin suns of Tatooine
Taught me everything I know
Twin suns of Tatooine
Taught me everything I know

There's room up there for second chances
Singles are fine but doubles are fantastic
I'd like to think that there's a star for me and you
Spinning round, falling for one another

Twin suns of Tatooine
Taught me everything I know
Twin suns of Tatooine
Taught me everything I know

Solos are fine but duets are romantic
A pair is grand but a trio'd be disastrous
I'd like to think that there's a star for me and you
Spinning round, falling for one another

The (ex-)Stig raves about... an electric car!



Ben Collins has fallen in love with, of all things, a Nissan Leaf! Check out the video to see why.

Meet Aaron Fotheringham, the creator of the Bible Flip : a double backflip on a wheelchair, named so because "it takes a lot of faith to throw a double".

Why some people are afraid of having kids

You never know what you're going to get.

You could end up with something like this kid:


It's easy to breed but difficult to instill good breeding.

That's why becoming a parent is such a big responsibility. You have to work at it every day. It's hard work.

Clearly, the parents were not around for this girl. Sad.

Thanks, Venus Raj



In a week which began badly with the tragic hostage-taking in Manila, the Philippines badly needed a shot in the arm for morale.

Venus Raj did it by breaking into the top 15 of the Miss Universe pageant ... and later on, making it into the top 5.

She didn't win (see previous video to see why) but it doesn't matter. (Beauty contests don't matter in the great big scheme of things, after all, and they never will.)

What matters is that, for a brief moment (see 2:17 of this video), we all felt like the kids in this video. In a week that promised gloom, despondency, darkness -- we had a ray of sunshine, even if only for an hour.

Thanks, Venus Raj.

Venus Raj is not alone



Face it, even you would have a hard time answering a question like that.

Are iPhone games eating PSP's lunch?

They must be, seeing as that Sony PSP has a new campaign specifically targeting iPhone game buyers.

Introducing Marcus Rivers, PSP "player".



The thing is, are iPhone gamers the same market as PSP players? My sense is that iPhone games appeal more to the casual kind of gamer -- two minutes to play and then life goes on. PSP games are more immersive and last an hour or more.

Tamara Lowe's One Minute Sermon

This has been going the rounds of Facebook lately and I thought I'd share it with you this Sunday morning.


Here's what she says so you can read at your own pace:


To be a survivor in this Amazing Race with the need for speed you need God’s Grace and if you're desperate like housewives watching days of our lives, you can’t cope without hope and that is not on a soap. If you're looking to Oprah or Dr. Phil you can shop non-stop or pop a pill, but the void won’t fill and the pain won’t kill until you love the one that hung on a hill. Kicking back in your lazy boy easy chair watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, nah you're not gonna find it there. No American Idol or Tribal Council has the final answer that will satisfy ya. C. S. I. ain’t got a clue. S.V.U. Don’t know what to do Not the E R or those seen on a CD TV DVD or MP3 can save you and me. CNN has got no Good News here’s a headline: you must choose. It’s not a simple life Paris Hilton, It’s treading on thin ice living in sin. You can be an apprentice for Donald Trump or eat Fear Factor fast food from a dump you can be a heavy hitter or Wheel of Fortune winner or a Fox news no spin spinner or flat sinner but you better check this life that you're livin’ and make sure your sins are forgiven I bet cha 50 cent Elvis done come and went, and eventually every Black-eyed-pea, Gwen Stefani, P-Diddy and Britney. Every wanna-be on M T V with their Icy Bling, every Dixie Chick that sings, they all gonna see the King of Kings. I don’t care if you're J-Lo, Leno or Bono. One thing you gotta know. Some day you're gonna die, Bro. Then where are you gonna go? Hey, i’m not talking some punk junk that is irrelevant. Like your Grandma’s church from way back when. It’s not some preacher feature on T B N. that you need to be liking or listening. The real superstar is Jesus Christ. He’s the Way, the Truth and the Life. One day he’s gonna split the sky. He is the brightest light and the highest high and so what I came to say and what I’m telling you is don’t buy that stupid stuff they be selling ya. It’s all designed to fill your head and waste your space until you're dead. Here’s the bottom line in my rhyme: Give your life to God while there is still time.



Wise words.

Amen!

Aliens are coming! Get out of town NOW!



Ok, not really -- but with a storm brewing like this one, you'd still be well advised to scoot as far away, pronto!

Wyclef Jean for President of Haiti

Wyclef Jean, hip hop artist, seems intent on running for the presidency of the still-devastated island nation of Haiti.

It's not such a bad idea, if you ask Fast Company ("Wyclef? Why not?") and besides, he's already wrote a song about what he would do IF he was president, anyway.

Barrichello beats Michael Schumacher : Hungary 2010

Few things are more gratifying than to see Ruben Barrichello soundly beat Michael Schumacher. Who cares that this happened in 2010 - years after Michael Schumacher's retirement and months into his comeback? Or that this is when the two former Ferrari teammates are now in second-class cars? Or that they were battling for TENTH position and the last remaining point available?

This is about seeing Michael Schumacher forced to eat humble pie and about seeing Barrichello get some points at the expense of said humble-pie eater. It's almost historic.

Here's the video (copying in several just in case F1 Management pulls them out.)


With inset:


Barrichello nearly pasted himself against the pitwall because of Schumacher's attempt to block him but manages to get through in time. Bad, bad Schumi.

And to drive the nail deeper into Schumacher's career coffin, the FIA have just given him a ten place demotion for the Belgian Grand Prix.

Floyd Mayweather Sr. on Pacquiao: "I'd tell him he's a fagg*t"





Floyd Mayweather Sr. is out of his mind.



Pacquiao SCARED of Mayweather? Get things straight in your head, man: Pacquiao already agreed to your random drug tests. Who didn't come to the bargaining table? Your son!






Check out this excerpt from an interview done by EastSideBoxing -- you can get the whole interview over there:


JENNA: Now Floyd, taking things back to your son and his potential fight with Pacquiao. If you could speak to Pacquiao right now face to face what would you say to him?

MAYWEATHER: I’d tell him he’s a fagg*t. You know what I’d tell him. Go stick your head up under your dress. That’s what I would tell him. I’m being real with you. I’d tell him he ain’t nothing but a sissy and a little girl. They got, as a matter of fact I’ve seen a thing in one of these books. Hold on just a second. Hey Lloyd! Where’s that book at about all of those athletes? That book about all of the athletes? You know the one, it had Pacquiao in there and Kobe in there? Well you know what, I’ll tell you just like the book says it. Hold on one second here. Here it is right here, here’s the book. It has nothing to do with no sissy. Just hold on just a second. I got something right here. I’m trying to find something right here. This is exactly what I would tell him. It’s in this book here. It’s “The Twenty Biggest Bitches in the Sport”. That’s what it says, “The Twenty Biggest Bitches in the Sport”. Guess who’s right here? Manny Pacquiao. It says “Biggest Bitches in the Sport” and that’s what he is, a bitch.

JENNA: So basically you’re questioning his manhood a little bit for not immediately taking a match with Floyd Mayweather Junior?

MAYWEATHER: Let me tell you something. What I’m saying here is not so much about that. Yeah, it would be that because of all these other guys. He ain’t got no problem with fighting all the big guys—De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton, the other African guy, the other guy who he fought with the title. I’m just saying he beat these guys, Cotto, he beat all these guys like they’re nothing. Pacquiao’s one of the biggest fagg*ts on the planet.

JENNA: So you think he’s afraid to fight your son?

MAYWEATHER: Yeah, he’s scared. The only thing they’re trying to do is to switch this around and make it look like it’s my son that’s scared. He ain’t the one that’s scared. I know who’s scared for real. They want to try and make it look like Floyd is scared, and he wants to do this, and make him take the test. No. You take the test. There ain’t nothing wrong with you taking the test. You take the test but one thing about it, don’t ask for the same amount of money because you don’t deserve it. You don’t deserve it.

Why Bieber's "Baby" beat Gaga's "Bad Romance"

This video by Justin Bieber has 251 MILLION views and is now the most viewed Youtube video of all time.


Lady Gaga's most watched video, on the other hand, still has to break the 248 million mark, even if it was posted a full three months BEFORE Bieber's.


WHY? 

Youtube's demographics, baby, that's all there is to it, as this post on Urlesque shows. 

Simply put, Lady Gaga's appeal is to a slightly older and smaller segment of the Youtube population. Teen girls, Bieber's base, apparently make up a much much bigger segment of Youtube. 




Why Japanese toilets have a "FLUSH" sound button

Amazing people, the Japanese!

What if she says "no"?

I've always been a bit uncomfortable with the idea of publicly made marriage proposals. I can't help thinking what enormous pressure that must put on the woman -- since crowds more often than not will cheer the guy on for finally getting the guts to jump.


Really, what happens if she says "no"? Would she want to risk even saying it, knowing she faces the immediate disappointment of a well-meaning crowd, as well as jeopardizing whatever relationship she has with the guy.

Thankfully, many of them say "yes" -- and hopefully not because of the pressure of the moment.

Here's another creatively done public (well, not too public) marriage proposal done via graffiti.

What the? The iPhone Photo Shoot

Check out this fashion shoot shot entirely with an iPhone.


Of course, it's not about the camera. It's about the eye of the person behind the viewfinder. It's not about the gun. It's about the guy holding the gun.

We all knew that.

But don't go off thinking you can do photo shoots of this quality yet. You still have to pony up money for lights, retouching, professional hair and makeup and all the other expensive things used here.

Which kind of begs the question, if you can afford the equipment, why are you still going to try shooting with an iPhone?

In any case, who cares, right? It's a great video nonetheless.
