Three Cute Pet Videos

Ria of Piappies World shares these three videos she found online:

1. What's cuter than a furry little puppy?

A whistling puppy, that's what!

2. What's cuter than a whistling puppy?

A kitty wearing a hat! Unfortunately, I think her dad disagrees. Or maybe because said kitten is a 'he"?

3. What's cuter than a whistling puppy and a kitty wearing a hat?

A puppy that can't stand up!

Ok, maybe it's not cuter. You gotta admit though that these vids were cute.

Thanks, Ria!

Head on over to Ria's site to say hello to her and her furry friends!

Take the fast lane

Why take the stairs when you can take the fast lane?

Nice stunt from Volkswagen.

While actually just an ad, don't you think it has real-world possibilities? Getting out of the MRT would take two, maybe three seconds -- and be a heck of a lot more fun than jostling your way down through a crowd of sweaty, smelly, harried commuters.

Want to be the Next Charice?

By now, everyone knows that Charice has landed a role as a recurring character in the hit TV series, "Glee".

If you didn't, here's proof (jump to 1:02):

The story of how Charice got to where she is now follows the lately-discovered formula for becoming a star in the Age of the Social Internet:

get one tremendously talented person, shoot Youtube videos, pass them around, get them to wow Oprah / Ellen and BAM... you're a star!

Some other Filipino kids (or maybe they just look Filipino) who could be following in Charice's footsteps are the following kids I discovered through a post in the Philippine Daily Inquirer. They're contestants in a Hong Kong talent contest called Star Factor.

Check them out and if you feel they could be the next Charice, vote for them. Voting ends tomorrow, so do it now.

"Daddy, pretty please, can I have a penguin?"

I can hear it already.

No, child. We have two dogs already with puppies on the way. Besides, the penguin will need its own airconditioner -- unless you want to give it your room.

The most beautifully drawn cartoon you haven't seen in a while

This is the trailer from "The Illusionist"

Beautiful work, especially since we've been seeing nothing but computer-aided animation for the last few years.

This is bound to be a classic.

More about the movie here.

Snoop Dogg now wooing Sookie

Snoop Dogg sure gets around.

Last we saw him he was in a cantina in a galaxy far, far away.

Now he's in Bon Temps, Louisiana trying to steal Snookie Stackhouse from Bill.

What a guy!

Grammar Nazi

For all my teacher-friends and everyone else who's ever cringed (or, worse, apoplectic) over bad grammar.

The Crayola Monologues

Here's an interesting way of talking about race (and gender) issues, without actually referring to them directly.

Plus, get some trivia on how issues like these actually changed the names of the crayon colors themselves.

Interesting, in a nerdy kind of way.

Another reason to hate Apple: iPhone 4

Steve Jobs:

I still haven't gotten the cash -- rather, the guts to spend the cash -- on an iPhone, and here you go again.

My friend, kuh0l said it all on Twitter: dear mr. jobs, i hate you. love, jun (and probably everybody else in the world.)



p.s. I especially hate how you can boast about videocalling and HD quality as if you guys had invented it. We've had these from other manufacturers for a while but because it comes from you it suddenly looks like the bee's knees!

p.s. Even worse, knowing all that, I still want one.

Mayweather chickens out versus Pacquiao... again

Chickening out again, eh, Floyd?

And just when Manny had said he's open to negotiating under your terms, too.

You want to be a legend, Floyd? Fight Pacquiao. Until you do, you will never be considered one of the Greats.

Unless you want to be remembered for being a Great Escape Artist. Oh yeah, you already own that title. Take a break then, two years, twenty if you want. No one will ever be able to take that title away from you anyway.

Most elaborate marriage proposal ever

Admit it, you teared up too, didn't you?
