Coming up: Social Video, Police Academy, Celebrity Apprentice

What’s up people? I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, but he’s a quick update on some upcoming posts:

It’s been a little over a year since I wrote a post on Viddy. Seeing as how the head of the company stopped by, read it and then addressed pretty much all of my beefs with the next software update, I should have acknowledged that a lot sooner, but in case you haven’t noticed, I’m kind of dick sometimes. Well, that follow up is coming, along with a look at some of the other players in the social video arena (specifically, Tout, YouToo, Qik and Color, because they’re the ones I’ve used).

Also, by (sort of) popular demand, I’ll be writing a piece on the sociological undertones of the Police Academy movies. Yup, that’s right. Last week, The AV Club celebrated Police Academy with a series of articles. I left a detailed comment on one of the articles, which got some good feedback, and a crowd sourced idea for a post. I don’t actually own the movies, because they’re on TV all the time. In fact, here’s what a TiVo search brings up:

Police Academy On TV This Week

They’re still in heavy rotation after all these years

As you can see, with the exception of The Original and Citizens On Patrol, the entire movie series will be on premium cable this week. I’ve already set the TiVo to grab them, and I’ll swing by the library to borrow DVDs of the two that aren’t airing. I’ll watch ’em all and regurgitate something eventually.

Lastly, while writing this, I’m also live tweeting this season’s finale of The Celebrity Apprentice. I’ve been doing that all season, so I’ll be writing a post or two relating to that. Eventually.

Daddy… what’s a gangbang?

  1. During a one on one interview segment on the Sunday, April 8, 2012 episode of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice, singer Aubrey O’Day made a rather explicit comment, which I tweeted about:

  3. I’ve embedded the episode below, but it’s hosted on YouTube, so hopefully it’s still there by the time you read this. The moment in question is at 43:50-44:03.

  5. Now, any reasonable adult who knows the definition of the word gangbang would surmise that Ms. O’Day misspoke, for whatever reason. Just for the sake of clarity, here’s the dictionary definition of gangbang, courtesy of Merriam-Webster, because they should know, right?
  6. Surely, Ms. O’Day didn’t mean to suggest that there would be group sex or gang rape going on later in the proceedings. It was clear to me, and should have been to anyone with common sense, that Ms. O’Day was explaining that should their team lose, Arsenio Hall and Clay Aiken would join forces against Teresa Giudice in assigning responsibility for the failure. Simply put, Messrs. Hall and Aiken would gang up on Ms. Guidice, which I am certain what Ms. O’Day had meant to say.

(Belated) Follow Friday – Celebrity Apprentice 2012 Edition

For the uninitiated, on Follow Friday Twitter users tweet out the names of other Twitterers that they think might be cool or interesting to follow. This is my list for this week, which covers The Celebrity Apprentice 2012, and it’s a couple of days late, because I pulled it out of my ass shortly before The Celebrity Apprentice season premiere. Shot and edited on an iPhone 4 using iMovie. Hope you enjoy watching it; thanks for taking the time.
