Songs to Close Mortgages To Thursday, March 27, 2014 | comments

So let's say you're Taylor Swift. I'm sure all the time fourteen year old girls say to you, "YOU GET ME, TAYLOR!" and "Your song meant so much to me! I did know that he was trouble when he walked in! Your music really helped me get through a hard time! I told him we were never ever ever getting back together!"

But I wonder if you are other musicians if anyone is just ever like "hey so at work I spend a lot of time filing TPS reports and doing HR duties and I like listening to your music when I do it.

Anyhow, in case anyone was looking for a good set of songs to do mortgages to, here is mine. The key is keeping things pretty fast paced. Enjoy all of my both good and/or embarrassing songs!

Ironically, lyrics may not be safe for work on a few of these.




[A mashup a Jay Z and Radiohead. NSFW]














This song except the extended version. From Attack on Titan [Hulu Link] which I watched in like 5 days while feeding our new baby in the middle of the night. If you think this is nerdy, wait until a few songs down










I've always found the video kind of obnoxious but the song catchy. It's a Far East Movement Parody

Someone made a game about developing games. That game got pirated. So, to fight back, the real life developers made it so that if you were playing a pirated copy of the game, your in-game game company would go bankrupt from piracy: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-04-29-game-dev-tycoon-forces-those-who-pirate-the-game-to-unwittingly-fail-from-piracy

The Mystery of Chessboxing Monday, February 18, 2013 | comments

So did you know that Chess Boxing is a thing? How it works: the same two guys alternate boxing and playing chess. If you win either, you win the chess boxing match.  Wikipedia: "A full match consists of eleven rounds: six rounds of chess, each four minutes long, and five rounds of boxing, each three minutes long."

The Consumerist had an interesting article about the terms of being a franchisee for Subway which included this from a subway worker:

2) How many veggies are supposed to come on a Subway sandwich? For a 6 inch, it is:
1 oz of cheese
.75 oz of lettuce
.5 oz spinach
3 tomatoes
3 cucumbers
.5 oz of onions
3 strips of green peppers
3 olives, 3 banana peppers, 3 pickles, 3 jalapenos
If a Subway chooses to give you more veggies than that, BE GRATEFUL
And today I went to Subway and I got like 10 green peppers on my footlong.

Gone Birding Saturday, October 13, 2012 | comments

The guys over at (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ (who seek to play the weirdest thrift store games they can find) just played Gone Birding the VHS game. It's a bird identification game.

Anyhow it has a map.



Let's zoom in on that map


Because if not for the map not being to scale, it would be the perfect navigational instrument.  Good thing the legal team was on it.
