Dog The Bounty Hunter

I don't get it. I've watched this show a few times and just don't understand the appeal of "Dog the Bounty Hunter" on A&E. It's mildly entertaining IF they catch someone, only because Dog bestows upon us a life lesson while delivering the fugitive to the pokey (they also offer the captured fugitive a cigarette while they're being processed).

The episode that I caught had Dog telling a female fugitive that he was God's angel telling her to straighten out her life. I'm sure that God's angel has a blonde mullet, freakishly dark George Hamilton tan, muscle shirt, Utlimate Warrior armbands, smokes Marlboro reds and drives around in an SUV with his equally 1980's wife that wears way too tight American flag shirts and dresses.

At any rate, a few people that I wouldn't expect to watch this show are watching it... and I just don't get it.

If you really "don't get it" Mr. Binkowski, then that is really a shame.

You see, Duane "Dog" Chapman is a truly good man. He does his best to help people. He fights crime at the root of the problem, by trying to help offenders in the early stages and thus prevent them from straying further down the criminal path.

His look and attire are mostly for theatrical effect. To intimidate criminals so that they will surrender, rather than fight and get injured.

Duane Chapman is totally against drugs, crime and injustice. He cares for his fellow man and instead of just talking a good game, he actually gets up off his butt and does something about it.

He is a man that can be held up as a role model of decency and honor. He is a caring father and a loving husband.

Above all else, he is a decent human being.

I hope that you "get" that, sir.

The life lessons that dog bestows after he catches the criminals are the idea of the show. also the fact that the show leaves you with genuine hope in humanity. if some one can offer these criminals hope and respect and just commen desency theres hope for the rest of us

As for his wife shes bodatius and shes beautiful shes a real woman the show wouldnt be the same if she was 99 pounds with legs up to her neck besides I love her look shes one if the few that can carry it off

And when dog said he was an angel he meant that god uses peaple in unexpected ways in times of difficulty and thats why he got Dog instead of some guy that would arrest him and dispose of him with out a care.

And by the way did you see his sons wow.

watch the show again keeping human desency in mind.

Just wanted to update you all that I've come around to Dog the Bounty Hunter. I watch it whenever I get a chance and find it entertaining. My wife and I will be going out as Dog and Beth this Halloween.

I am also thinking about sending in a track called 'Enemy' from my band's debut CD for use on the show.

Hey, regardless of whether or not people like Star Wars or crappy 80s bands, no one's entitled to make fun of handles.

How to Rick Roll Someone

I've noticed a lot of traffic to my blog from a post I did on Rick Roll. In particular, people are looking for how to do it. So, without further adieu, here's a quick 1, 2, 3 on "How to Rick Roll Someone."

Pick your target. This should be someone not suspecting a peculiar link, email or heads up. Works great if you're the guy/girl in the office known for sending YouTube links via IM
Grab the URL. The YouTube video is probably the easiest to snag, because the URL isn't a dead giveaway. Sites that truncate URLs like SnipURL and TinyURL are handy if you want to send folks to
Pick your delivery method and send! IM, email, blog (wink!), what-have-you.

Please, feel free to get creative. Our programmers used a "Can someone test this site?" email to the office to Rick Roll the entire staff. Or better yet - send the URL along to unsuspecting family members as "Our newest family pictures!".

Another fun way is via conference or phon…

My first Facebook spam!

Well, that didn't take long. I was spammed twice today via my Facebook profile by someone named Andrea Rowe, saying that she likes my profile picture (flattery is my weak spot) and wanted to chat. She's promoting a site through one of the TinyURL-esque sites and let me know that her username is "foxy_hotty". Here's her follow up message:

hi there David, how's it going? i wanted to chat with you, but they don't have that here, whatever. if you'd like to, you can check out my other profile at my username's foxy_hotty. we can chat there, just dont mind the bad pics, lol. soooo, ya, see you i hope.

Yes, I edited the SnipURL ending because I refuse to give spammers free promotion or even worse, the click through. For those unaware, sites like SnipURL and TinyURL allow you to send truncated versions of URLs, which is particularly handy when you're posting URLs to your blog (formatting) or SMS-based tools like Jaiku and Twitte…

Fake Facebook Likes and Twitter Followers -- And the Implications for Brands

This post originally appeared on the Large Media blog.

There's been a lot of talk about Twitter followers lately, including both presidential candidates, celebrities, musicians and the like utilizing services to game their numbers. Specifically, a lot of the "Top 10" have been found to have a substantial amount of fake followers, in some case to the point where 70% of their following is either bots or inactive profiles. Most articles and infographics on the subject are telling, however with a little digging you can find out that there are also social media "experts" utilizing the service to give the appearance of bloated numbers. Intrigued, and given our rare propensity to tweet as an agency, we wanted to see what the fuss was about.

So we gave it a try.


In August we saw some ads on a third party Twitter "profile checker" site  saying they can send a thousand followers your way for $9. The process is pretty simple: select how many followers yo…
