A friend of mine at work was checking out Google Maps the other day. They have a new “Street View” feature that was getting the attention of everyone in the office. Soon, we all wanted to see if our house was on Google maps. This one lady pulled up her house on Google Maps and found something very disturbing: Her husbands car in the driveway with the car of her best friend on the street! What!?! Needless to say, there was a lot of splainin to do. Cool technology does not bode well for cheaters, but it’s really great for everyone else!
Google Maps 1: Cheaters 0!
I was joking around about being a redneck model for a new pair of binoculars by Spion. I’ve got my fishing jacket. I’ve got my red Snap-on baseball cap. I’ve got my… Ladybug?
I’ve been a HUGE fan of LOL Cat for a loooooooong time. I post them on people’s Myspace profiles and vote regularly. Today, my friend Ken dropped off page 90 of the latest SkyMall, and I had to make my own LOL Cat!!! And it ends up being a Ceiling cat at that!

The French have been drinking PscHitt for more than half a century now. I don’t think we’ll be seeing the French drink in America (or anywhere that speaks English for that matter) any time soon. MMM… Look at that scrumptious PscHitt!
A couple of Friday’s ago, I was at an event in Inglewood. It was an event for the Stephanie Starks HOPE Foundation and their Read for Hope program. My buddy Vadim and I loaded up my car with three giant R/C racecars from Gadget Universe and his car with one of them, and we headed down to LAX Hyundai.
We had the wrong address in my GPS to start with, so Vadim and I ended up down at the ocean. We called up the dealership and realized we had passed it right when we had gotten off the freeway. We made our way back to the dealership, unloaded the cars, and enjoyed the show.
Big Leroy Mobley was there along with Rudy Youngblood (from Apacalypto) and Daniel Curtis Lee and Rachel Sibner (from Nickelodeon’s Ned’s Declassified). I’ll write more about Ned’s Declassified in another blog. Dan and Rachel were totally cool, and the kids LOVED THEM!
Rudy did a really cool tribal dance. I wish I had recorded some of it on my cell phone. He had the whole tribal getup on (it has been passed from generation to generation through his family), and the kids loved it. The funniest part was when he sat down with the kids and he was talking with them. A couple of times he said “Berdi niiice”. I thought to myself, “Self, that’s rather interesting. I’ve heard that before, but I can’t remember where.”
Friggin Borat, man! I say that at work all the time. Berdi niiice. Anyway, everything was going great until Youngblood and Mobley tried to jack the racecars! I kid. I kid. Everyone was a great sport. Rudy and Leroy were two of the coolest guys I’ve ever met in Hollywood.
The cars really brought out the kid in everyone. The kids that won the cars had a great time. They could hardly believe they had just won a car that was as big as they are!
Rudy and Leroy were very excited about getting their hands on one of these cars too. Take a look at the image… These things are HUGE!!! And fast too!

I was at a house warming party for my sister last night. Our oldest brother, Michael, was there. We were talking about my latest television production: The talKing Show. My brother had been at the taping of the first show, so we were talking about some of the guests from the show and the host: Christine Eads from the XM Radio show Broadminded. I mentioned that I got to see the “Broads” in action last weekend when I had gone to DC.
My brother and I were sharing fond memories of DC: the incredible monuments, the layout of the city, and, of course, and the GIGANTIC Capitol building! I was pleased to share with him about staying at the JW Marriott. The address is 1331 Pennsylvania Ave. You might notice that address is pretty close to the most famous address in America. However, I wasn’t excited because I was staying a couple of blocks away from Georgie. I was excited because of what resides on the corner of 15th and Pennsylvania. No, it’s not a couple of capital hookers. It is the US Treasury Building, and most importantly, a statue of the great Alexander Hamilton. Without digressing too far… Please note that if you ever supported placing Ronald Reagan on the 10 dollar bill, you are going to hell. And if you don’t think it is ironic that racist, murdering, anti-federal bank tyrant, Andrew Jackson is on any form of currency… Well, I should save that for another blog.
Back to the good stuff. I mentioned to my brother that I really enjoyed the Lincoln Memorial. Not only is it an extraordinary building, but the words of Lincoln carved into the right side of the building are brilliant! You need to visit the memorial. All the memorials are amazing. BTW, the Washington Monument does not look like a phallic symbol. It really just looks like a pencil.
So, in the midsts of my older brother and I talking about the Lincoln Memorial, he brings up a very interesting story about his assassination. Something I wasn’t even aware of. Lincoln’s assassination was not just some isolated crazy actor pissed at Lincoln for saying that he was going to give suffrage to former slaves. The Lincoln assassination is actually merely a big part of a plot to actually decapitate the American government.
First, John Wilkes Booth was not some no name actor. He was a well known, accomplished actor from a family of actors. It would be like George Clooney or Harrison Ford killing W. Second, Lincoln was not the only person who was on the hit list. Lincoln, Vice President Johnson, and Secretary of State Seward were all going to get whacked. The assassins were in place. The plans were in place. Even General Grant was going to be assassinated. And folks, they weren’t that far away from pulling it off.
In this day and age, everyone likes to come up with conspiracy theories, like the flaming 20 dollar bill:
But the folks back in the days of Lincoln actually lived it. Kinda helps put some of our ridiculous conspiracies like the 20 dollar bill theory into perspective. What a goofy conspiracy compared to Booth’s devious plans.

Apparently, this is from the September 1939 edition of Mechanix Illustrated. I couldn’t help but chuckle. These clumsy looking shoes were invented by some Swiss shoemaker who wanted to reduce the impact of everyday walking on our bodies.
I’m not sure if he’s going to be watching himself in Alpha Dog, but Shawn Hatosy was very delighted to pick up a Mp3/4 Player Watch at the GBK Oscar Gift Suite this year. He actually picked up the very last one at the charity gift event.
He wasn’t the only celebrity who couldn’t keeps his eyes off of the watch that is like an iPod for your wrist. Billy Wirth (who’s been in many things since The Lost Boys) had to have one before he left the room.
Joel Moore, from Dodgeball and the upcoming Hottie and the Nottie (starring my favorite mind reader, Christine Lakin), snagged one before it was too late. After my failed attempt to get him to flirt with a girl in the room while his girlfriend listened to the whole thing in the other room on remote recording device, he had to see what other goodies were available. The MP3/4 Player Watch jumped out at him. In fact, he was the one who said, “It’s like an iPod on your wrist!”
