I’m pretty sure by now you’ve seen the video of bully victim Casey Heynes. The Australian kid who was always being picked on…until one day a bully took it a little too far and Casey retaliated. The school ended up suspending both students as they have a strict no fighting policy but since the video...
We’ve all been witness to a bad commercial before. How about those darned class action lawsuit ads that are always popping up during my Jeopardy! program. They’re horrible but I’ve gotten somewhat immune to viewing them. Here are some truly awful local TV ad spots. I’d doubt if it wasn’t for YouTube and the internets...
With the 2011 NCAA Basketball Tournament starting this week it’s only fitting that Google release a virtual tour of the venues incorporating Google Earth. It seems they’re bigger basketball fans than even myself. They setup a site just for the sole purpose of keeping track of all the coverage (there’s also a hidden game!) On top...
The good ol’ “Fair & Balanced” Fox News is up to their normal shenanigans. During a recent report about the violent Wisconsin protests on the O’Rielly Show they cut between reporter Mike Tobin and the “protests in Madison, WI”. The problem? Have you ever seen palm trees in Madison? Just another example of the right-wing...
Meet 5-year old Joey, the Junior Reporter for the Chicago Blackhawks. He asks the tough hitting questions like “How much do you get from the Tooth Fairy?” and “Who’s the biggest turkey on the team?” This cute little bugger is better than most of the reporters covering the NHL and he’s just a half century...
I’m sure you remember the whole Zach Anner/Oprah debacle. Well he recently got to sit down again with her on her new show and channel. The interview begins with Oprah asking him a few questions but towards the end, he flips the switch and digs into her a little. I love the look on her...
There is a lot of hype and hubbub surrounding IBM’s Watson computer competing on Jeopardy! against two of the best contestants ever, Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter. It’s quite an interesting idea and it will be fun to see how it spans out in the end. Will computer be able to beat human? Are electronics...
It’s very easy to develop a man crush on the best American reporter in the Middle East. Richard Engel is nice, polite and has written two books. He’s also been churning out some of the best reporting on the Egypt revolution (and the soon to come other revolutions) this side of Al-Jazeera. His Wikipedia page...

Check out this awesome video of what happens when a true geek, and musical fan, gets bored. People have made floppy drives sing before, but this is my personal take on it. Features two 3 1/2″ drives and two 5 1/4″ drives connected to a PIC18f14k50 microcontroller. It interfaces to any MIDI source via MIDI...
Sometimes “sideline” journalism can be quite a tough job. There are endless perils and risks that one might encounter. They often times have to brave the elements and put themselves right in the action. Our hats go off to the valiant souls that put their bodies on the line just to capture a fleeting moment for viewers...
