LeBron James Etch-A-Sketch

Even though they're down 3-0 to the Spurs on a bad no-call at the end of last night's game, the Cavs (yes, the same Cavs that ran my Pistons out of the playoffs) deserve some props. Today's gem comes via Steve at Adrants - Expert Etch-A-Sketch artist and Cleveland native George Vlosich III creates a tribute to LeBron James over on YouTube via this 3 minute fast-forward video. The real time version took 5 hours to complete. With over 214,000 views, 2350+ comments and 1680 Favorites it's time to officially welcome Quicken Loans and the Cavs to the world of viral video.

But what I want to know is - how come Clay C and the Diff team didn't pitch this to me?

I've seen that kid draw stuff before. Pretty cool. Too bad the song sucks ass and he knows nothing about anatomy. HA

Yo Davey

I did send this to you and Chilly. But you were out of town. Didn't you get the email?

Ignore my previous comment. I stand corrected. I sent it to Charlie and Jud. I didn't copy you on it. But I swear I got an auto reply email that you were out of the office for a week. Are you sure I didn't send you an email about this?????

My bad if I didn't. If we ever do anything this cool again, I shall include you. And thanks for putting on your blog by the way.

Views are over 1 million now! As far as I know it cost us 5 grand total. Add a few hundred bucks for my time and guy who helped me do the outreach and we are probably talking a total spend of $5,500. Not bad for 1 million view...

Charlottesville, Skinheads, White Supremacists, Trump and Idiocy

I'm having a lot of emotions about what took place in Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend. None of them are good or positive for the direction of the United States. The GOP rode a media whore, a second rate TV "star", and lifelong con artist to the White House to help advance their agenda -- of which they have no idea how to implement.

The biggest problem is, Trump is a well documented racist that tries to help legitimize FOX News and Alex Jones and every racist thing in between. What these media properties all know is that a) division works and b) some people of faith will believe anything. Trump pushed the Obama birther theory, he declined housing to African Americans and he employs employed a racist in former Breitbart employee Steve Bannon. I'm not going to get into his circus of racists on staff including Gorka and Miller, because they aren't worth the words.
I have a lot of conservative friends that voted DRUMPF with hopes he'd bust up Washington. An…

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…
