Conan O'Brien Does the 2011 Dartmouth College Commencement Address

This is long but so funny.  There is some language, so it's NSFW.  Another interesting piece of info that makes it more funny is, Conan graduated from Harvard University.

Follow my Twitter Feed @jimmythegun

So, if you follow my Twitter feed, you are aware I'm on vacation.  Usually I'd use this time to sit and read or write blog entries, but this year I've vowed to enjoy the beach, get a tan, and be a little more involved with my family.  Today is Sunday and most of the family is going to church.  We are debating not going because putting our kids in an unknown church's kid care program is a little uncomfortable for us.  We are a little over-protective, but it's a sign of the times.  It's actually been a topic of discussion this week.

Anyway, I'm in a slump with the blog too.  I love having it, updating it, and sharing my findings, but Twitter is just so much easier for me to use quickly.  Blogger needs to introduce an iOS app that allows for posting, with simple video embedding, picture uploading, and text inputting for preparing a post.  So far, only Wordpress has grasped the usefulness of an iOS app.  Maybe I should move to Wordpress.

Okay, so this post has nothing of value, except for me to say some words.  Follow my Twitter feed at @jimmythegun.

Guitar Strings, Wave Lengths, Frequencies, iPhone 4 Rolling Shutter, Awesome!

I'm not going to begin to pretend I understand what exactly causes the strings to move with, what look like, different wave lengths.  I'm just going to post this awesome video, link a bunch of nerds arguing about what the cause and effect is, and move on.  Enjoy.

Less vs Fewer...Learned About From Weird Al

I love Weird Al Yankovic.  And today, I learned that he is actually a pretty fart smeller smart fellow (a joke of his caliber).  So when I saw this awesome video, I turned to my source for what's correct and what's not.  Grammar Girl explains the correct uses for "less" and "fewer", and even gives the example Al does in this short video.

This Guy. And His Cello. OMG.

The crazy thing about this is, he is incredibly talented.  Cheesy, but talented.  I especially love the cat at about minute 2:00.  Oh and if you stick around for the whole video, you learn Mr. Winer uses what looks like AstroTurf to create a green screen for all his awesome video effects.
