I Can't Believe That I Barack Obama Have To Deal With This

Monday, June 30th, 2008

Watching the Daily Show one night, I heard Jon Stewart mention a highly specific, and highly made-up sounding web site.

Then I went there.

It was real!

On Digg, someone posted the story and said, "Thought he was joking, but he wasn't."

Well, I had already checked the WhoIs of the site, and found it was registered the exact day the Daily Show aired! So that would lead me to believe someone watching took the idea and made it real.

If you go to the site in question, you can see that the creator wrote, "Jon Stewart said it, so I made it."

What a world we live in where fictional web sites can become real in less than 24 hours.

P.S. You can leave a comment there.

Political YTMNDs

Sunday, March 30th, 2008

I recently visited, and I wanted to share a few politically-themed creations with you. These are my favorites:

(OK) Hillary cant stop Barack – He's a Rock

(WILD) Hillary's a Maniac – A Crazy Dance

(AWESOME) Race to the White House – Obama vs. McCain

And this one I just think is nuts:

The Democratic Destruction – The Last Crusade

Did you see Obama's face at the end? That was unreal!

Rap, Hip Hop, And The President

Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

Today I visited, and it looks pretty cool. There’s a rap forum for discussing whatever comes to mind, related to rap and hip hop. I thought this post was neat:

“Hip Hop in the White House – Yo, if Obama wins the prez race, does he blast something like ‘Eric B is President’ in the Oval Office? How pimp would that be,,,,,”

I think it would be wild if Obama or any other candidate happened to win and then televised a celebration that a lot of people could relate to. But then again, I’ll be some stressed-out people somewhere would say, “Get to work! What do we pay you for…” And the President would have to say, “Yes sir, Uncle Sam.”

Another topic on the forum was about old school vs. new, and how some people were concerned about the changes in music over time. It looks like the artists who started it all are, for the most part, staying true to their original concepts. Still, the threat is lurking that commercialization and other forces will dilute the purity of those ideas. For more on the issues concerning rap and hip hop, check out

Obama Is Wikipedia's Definition Of Charismatic

Saturday, March 22nd, 2008

I was watching something on TV, and it showed a fictional character of intense charisma. I thought, "How did he get that way?" So I surfed on over to Wikipedia and looked up "Charisma."

This part reminded me of Obama:

"The following are Professor Wiseman's general tips on how to be more charismatic:

  • General: Open body posture, hands away from face when talking, stand up straight, relax, hands apart with palms forwards or upwards

  • To an individual: Let people know they matter and you enjoy being around them, develop a genuine smile, nod when they talk, briefly touch them on the upper arm, and maintain eye contact
  • To a group: Be comfortable as leader, move around to appear enthusiastic, lean slightly forward and look at all parts of the group
  • Message: Move beyond status quo and make a difference, be controversial, new, simple to understand, counter-intuitive
  • Speech: Be clear, fluent, forceful and articulate, evoke imagery, use an upbeat tempo, occasionally slow for tension or emphasis."

I don't know who Professor "Wise man" is. Maybe it's a gag?

Anyway, I thought of a sketch that SNL might consider doing, showing Obama in preparation for his reentry into the political sphere. Just before he enters the Presidential race, he'd be searching Wikipedia for any and all information that could help him.

"Let's see here — charisma — blah blah blah, comfort as a leader, move around, lean forward, blah blah, make a difference, be new, simple, beyond status quo, blah, blah, be clear, forceful, use imagery, blah, blah, slow for emphasis………… Got it!"

"Mr. Obama, you're needed on stage! Are you ready to speak?"

(leaning forward, with slow emphasis) "I am now."

Yahoo Wants You To Vote Democrat In 2008

Wednesday, December 12th, 2007

Saw this on Yahoo:

Yahoo Election 08

I see smiling people on top (Democrats), and non-smiling people beneath (Republicans). Sure, Obama isn't fully smiling, but he still looks happier than Giuliani, Thompson, and Romney.

I think Yahoo wants us to think more favorably of Democratic candidates than Republicans.
