Zach Braff is Not Dead – But He Is Still Funny!


Check out the below video, also featuring Donald Faison, where Zach Braff combats the rumor that he has died.

It’s frickin’ hilarious! 😀 I know people say that he has a bad temper, but cracks me up. 😛

Here’s the vid – transcription is below:

Zach: Hi! It’s Zach Braff here. I’m alive. There was a big internet rumor today that I was dead, that I ODed on some pills. It’s not the case. I’m alive, I’m here at Scrubs shooting the new Scrubs Title Sequence. Which is a little bit like dying, so I guess that was semi-accurate. Also, I would never off myself with pills. If I had to do it, I would do it the way that everyone else would do it, by hitting myself with pots and pans.

A couple innaccuracies you should have noticed when you saw the thing, if you believed it.

One. The dude said that, let me just pull it up here, he said that I was found in my 32,000 square foot estate in Beverly Hills. Look, I’m not Oprah, all right? That’s a big ass house. And, you know, I’ve got a nice house, but 32,000 square feet – that’s like some Oprah shit right there.

Oh, and also, I think it’s funny that when I posted earlier that I was alive I didn’t really get that many “likes.” And I think there should have been way more likes out there for those of you who like me, when I said that I was alive.

On a positive note, I was able, when my friend Donald Faison called me frantically, I was able to work out with him that if I do ever die, I would like him to sing an R&B version of Wind Beneath my Wings at my funeral.

So I just want to say to Chris Laga-laga-nella, who apparently is the douchebag that started this, you win my first ever “Douche of the Day” award for making my Mom upset.

And now, to play us out, Donald Faison with an R&B rendition of “Wind Beneath My Wings”

Donald (singing): Did you ever know that you’re my hero? You’re everything I would like to could be? OOOO I could..

Zach (interruping): I’m sorry to interrupt, but would you mind just urbaning it up a little bit? R&B it up.

Donald (singing): Did you ever know that you’re my hero…

Zach: Thank you everybody.

Songs About Websites – AKA – Cybersongs :)


Inspired by yesterday’s reblog, I have decided to release the next in the series of reblogging myself. 🙂 This one is from InternetMarketingChick, as well.


So, embedding Kina’s Digg song last week got me thinking about other songs I’ve heard that are about websites.

Not to brag or anything, but I’m KIND of the Queen of the Theme mixtape. For instance, I have managed to collect 27 songs that are all either called “Melanie” or feature a major character named “Melanie” – I call that one “Narcissism.” 😀 My masterpiece to date, though, is “Rockin’ While Stalkin'” – songs about stalking or being stalked. 😀

This mix I’ve put together here, I have to say, is pretty cool and I’m kinda proud of it, even though it only features 6 songs.


Kina Grannis – Gotta Digg Here’s the song that gave me the idea in the first place. 😀

Alana Taylor – The Twitter Song It talks about Twitter AND Facebook, and even mentions Mahalo Daily 😀 Triple Threat

IM Love – Raining Jane This song doesn’t talk about a specific website, but…how can you not include Raning Jane? IMPOSSIBLE! God, I hope you’re not my Dad. That’s all I’m sayin’.

The Myspace Song – Good Clean Fun They know how Emo kids feel. 😀

I’m a Warrior – Steven Wagenheim Only song on the list dedicated to an IM forum. Come on eWealthers – catch up! Nebula/Jamie? Nothing? 😀

YouTube (A Love Song) – David Choi A lot of people claim they see a little smile at the end. I don’t. 🙂

Ebay – Weird Al Yankovic (contributed by xmx)

Facebook Anthem – LLP81 (I don’t think this is a band, just people that make funny videos, but it’s DAMN funny! 😀) (contributed by Ian Wilcox)

I Google You – Amanda Palmer (courtesy of Weblantis.org)

Coming Soon, hopefully, will be The Internet Killed Bookmobile by ColinSick. 😀

Did I Forget Any? Leave Them In The Comments, I’ll Amend the List!

Top 25 Facebook Games


Take a look at this chart of the Top 25 Facebook games. It surprised me when I looked at it. I use Little Green Patch from time to time, and I’ve been invited to Mob Wars although I never really got into it. But I was shocked to see the absence of WordTwist, which is wildly popular among my friends and I.

Check it out!

Jesus Is My Friend by Sonseed


I have wasted…just…SO MUCH time over the past few days watching this. And watching it again. And again. And again. And again.

Gotta love them viral videos. 😀




Love that movie. That is also how long it’s been since I’ve written. 🙂 So, with much urgings from my beloved ShellyJanuary, here goes:

WHAT I’VE BEEN LISTENING TO: Matt, Matt, Matt, Matt…and, oh yeah, more Matt. http://www.mattnathanson.com I got a hold of some of his live shows, and they have rekindled my Matty Lovin’. How is it possible that I have never seen him live? Why, now that I could finally manage to afford it, is he not touring back in California in the forseeable future? How is the Universe that unfair? Wow…these questions are really deep. I should be a Zen master. Seriously.

BEST MOVIE I’VE SEEN RECENTLY: Lost in Translation. I saw it at the ArcLight in Hollywood. Only place I ever want to see a movie again ever, incidentally. Cool ass movie theater. ASSIGNED SEATING! Anyway…Lost in Translation kicks serious booty. I can’t believe that Scarlett Johansson (sp? I don’t know) was only 17 when it was filmed. Also, Giovanni Ribisi was so perfect…I can’t even explain it. The movie was just so subtle…so few films are really subtle, and this one mastered that perfectly. I loved it.

BEST COMIC IN THE (FUCKING) WORLD: Dane Cook. http://www.danecook.com Shawna and I listened to his CD on the way home from LA last weekend, and I seriously thought I was not going to be able to continue driving while listening to it, I was laughing so hard. He is HILARIOUS!!!!!!!! Did I mention that he’s also hott? Not just hot. Double ‘t’ hott. He is a hottie hott hott hottie. HOTT!!!!! As my other hottie crush, Matty N., would say: AAWWW…..SHIT!

OK, I’ve read a ton of crap since I’ve last posted, I’m not even gonna try to touch on it all. What I want to talk about is Backspin by Harlan Coben. It’s a Myron Bolitar mystery, one of the early ones. What made it special, though, was you get some insight into Win…his mother’s in the story, his uncle, cousins…and an incident from his childhood is revealed. It doesn’t *explain* him by any means, but it offers a glimpse. And since Win is far and away my favorite character in the series…possibly in recent literature LOL…I was lovin’ it.

WHAT’S BEEN GOING ON: Well, Zany Brainy filed for bankruptcy. Damn them. Well, it’s FAO, Inc., technically. The parent company. No difference. My reaction is still: Bastards! I loved that job. Those girls were great. Oh, well, moving on with my life…

Scott Bairstow from Party of Five…you remember, Neve Campbell’s abusive boyfriend Ned? Turns out the motherfucker has been molesting/statutory raping a relative of his ex-wife’s since she was 12 years old and he was in his late twenties. I always thought that guy played a psycho pervert too well. Seriously. Shawna and I used to talk about how he gave us the creeps for real. Something about his eyes…like when Tim Conway and Harvey Korman used to laugh for real, and you could tell it was different than acting-laughing? Well, like that, but with “psycho” instead of “laughter.”

I’ve been subbing while I’ve been off track. It’s so much fun! New class every day, VERY little responsibility (compared to having my own room), I’m out when the kids are out, and although it doesn’t pay as well as teaching, it’s still pretty good pay. Damn. That’s my new career goal…subbing. LOL I would love it, actually, if I could afford to just sub instead of teach. The reason I got into teaching was to spark kids’ passion for learning, to share literature and learning that I’m passionate about with them as well…and I’m not allowed to do that anyway, so what’s the point?

Anyway, I am going to make a serious effort to post more often…even if I don’t make a big production of it every time, if I just post some thoughts. I really want to aim for once a week consistency. That would be perfect.

Check in with ya later!
