Benny Hinn: Let the Bodies Hit the Floor

I don't know if I should find this offensive or not. However, given my history on both sides of the religious fence, I think everyone can benefit from this. Those who know the song probably won't find anything wrong with it; those who don't know the song or artist but do know Benny Hinn, will at most write it off as more of "those annoying young people." To be honest, I have no clue as to which side the creator was on when this was made, but it does have surprisingly good choreography. Also, the amount of time it would have taken to go through enough video from "This is Your Day" to get all of this is stunning!

Why I'd rather be using an impact printer...

The Dirty Little Secret of Inkjet Printers - video powered by Metacafe

This video from Atomic Shrimp showcases the reason I would rather be using an impact or laser printer than an inkjet. Also, I almost never print in color, but with at least two of the inkjet printers I've owned refused to print in black ink only without fiddling with setting -- this even when printing black text.

Daft Bodies - Harder Better Faster Stronger

Ok, so it seems embedding is disabled on this video. That's why my attempt to post it directly from YouTube! failed... Anyway, for the last post to make sense, imagine I had posted an embedded version of this almost immediately before making my last post.

This is perhaps one of my favorite song by Daft Punk, and I cannot imagine anything better to accompany it that two sexy young women with boxes on their heads.

Daft Punk Hader Bodies (Male version) Harder Better Faster..

Ok, so no one can accuse me of being sexist or discriminatory, here's the same schtick with men this time. I just with I could follow the conversation at the end; my French (They are speaking French, right?) is horribly rusty. If anyone wants to transcribe what they're saying in the comments, I'd be more than thankful. Also, I have to give them credit for better cinematic construction; opening with something of a striptease is always a good way to catch and hold an audience's attention. Although, the font in the credits could have been chosen better -- such as something legible....

Yes I'd recommend MacHeist....

Ok, I'll admit, I am getting paid to say this -- sort of. I do benefit from you or anyone else you care to pass this link along to clicking through and buying this bundle, but I did go to the effort of composing this message all by myself. :-) Plus, I actually use most of this software and really love it!

MacHeist is doing another bundle offer; this one includes: iClip, CoverSutra, Awaken, Cha-Ching, Xslimmer, WriteRoom, DEVONthink Personal, Wallet, Overflow, and 3 great Pangea games: Enigmo, Nanosaur 2, and Bugdom 2.

I use several of these. iClip is really nifty after you've used it for a while. CoverSutra is handy if you like to keep iTunes playing in the background. Xslimmer is really handy on a laptop. WriteRoom I discovered quite some time ago, and it's still my prefered utility for actual creative writing that doesn't involve pen and paper. Enigmo is fun; Enigmo 2 is better mind you, but....

This video relates personal accounts of damage done by yet another abuse of governmental power in search of monetary gain. In previous generations, untold numbers of people and birds suffered due to DDT. This could be the tragedy of our generation.
