Sorry Gabe. I think I beat you to the punchline on this one: ...or at least Canada did?

So embarrassing that I actually recognize that dollar store in the seagull/escalator video. Apparently, my life is a series of Canadian basement dollar stores.

I like the Canadian news coverage of this story better, where a) the clerk thought it was Sponge Bob, b) tells the robber not to bother, and c) didn't think to report it.

I promise, I mean this in the most un-troll-like way possible, but I need someone to explain to me how to feel good about all of the "web 2.0," "synergy," "web marketing for dummies" posts lately. Hard as I try to avoid feeling my skin crawl, I can't help it. The link aggregation posts and the contests...i feel Iess and less inclined to click past my rss on both videogum and the superficial. Anybody have any words of comfort? Do I just accept this progression as the inevitable commercialization required for a blog to continue nowadays? Am I the only one feeling this way? Just curious.

How about some Buzz Media crossover posts? Gabe writes the Superficial. The Superficial writes the Kim Kardashian bog and Kim Kardashian writes for Videogum. It's called SYNERGY folks!

I think it's wild that in a post premised on John Hamm being a goof, no one has noticed that he's eating lunch with Jack McBrayer!

Actually baby carrots are already just regular carrots rebranded for yuppies. Turns out Americans don't like irregular shaped carrots, so the carrot industry takes all of those millions of pounds of deformed carrots, puts them through massive water sanders and whittles them down to 'baby' carrots. They're actually really bad for the environment due to all the wasted energy and extra carbon involved in the process, and they end up being kind of bland versions of the original carrot. So there you go, turns out none of us are better than the fatties.
