(via rickyv) That sucks, but at least you can take solace in the fact their lipdubbing is terrible.

amandalynferri: Can you guys please tell me what your favorite ska albums are? It doesn’t matter which wave of ska, I am interested in all. I have recently been listening to a lot lately, but realize that I have very few ska albums past ‘99. “Hello Rockview”, “B is for B Sides” and “Borders and boundaries” by Less Than Jake. “Strictly Rude” by...
I've Had Enough
summero: jakoblodwick: After reading my mom’s post on shutting down her tumblelog, I can’t help but agree, and it’s time for me to end this. It’s not about Tumblr, specifically. It’s about the web in general. It’s become overrun by too many animals. One of the last straws was adventures of mascarah, who, after reading a few posts where I expressed myself, wrote this: I will say that if you...

Jake’s On First - TV on the Internet I’m not sure why I started doing this, but its very emotionally and mentally liberating. My mind has been a golden cage recently, so to let it out is quite blissful. This is the fourth (and best edited, so far) episode.
University of Phoenix Graduation Night Chatroom -... →
The in(s)ane verb-creating craze came to a head this week as I discovered MeeMix, billed as a potential Pandora competitor by The Inquisitr, has a feature not unlike Digg and other social news sites where a user can vote up a certain song. BUT OH NO, IT ISN’T CALLED “VOTING UP”. They call on users to “Meep it up!”, which is also a variation on something Alex Mann...

George Carlin's last interview - Psychology Today →
An unbelievably good read. This interview, taken just ten days ago, is full of so many priceless quotes. Carlin does not sound like a 71 year old, he sounds as youthful as ever, just a little bit wiser. The other night, my Mum laughed hysterically at the trailer for Don’t Mess With The Zohan, but when I told her George Carlin died, she had no idea what I was talking about. Man, I miss that...
distorte: So the deal is: last week i was knocking around this idea that there are certain questions that mean nothing, and yet divide people. Like which would you rather eat, an overripe or under ripe banana? I was going to drop these on Tumblr and say that I was looking for a unified theory of the human psyche. Like maybe the questions actually revealed everything there was to know about people....
There is a tiny exception to this rule. The Entrepreneurs. The men and women who...– Jakob Lodwick
I’m a little depressed at the amount of people who, upon being told that comedic great George Carlin, gave me a blank stare. A lot (if not all) of his points about society/religion/politics are not only valid, but valuable. And these are people who could certainly stand to be enlightened on these subjects, as their closeted upbringing has led to them having extremely conservative views, and...

Why Harvey Danger released their 2006 album for... →
Okay, so I’m two years behind the times, but this stunned me so much I had to share. The fact that the band was so absolutely forthcoming, admitting that the music industry was being flat out retarded about music and the internet, and then releasing their album entirely for free without restriction is simply amazing. Not only that, but the physical version of the album came with a 30-minute...

Was that a YETI?? Well, I’m in.
This is mostly a personal record, but perhaps you’ll get some voyeuristic glee from it so I won’t discourage you from revelling in what, for me, is tiresome and unnecessary drama, something I’ve been avoiding like the plague ever since I found out that internet forum politics are petty and exhausting. This started about a month ago when I started talking to this girl, Shelley,...
Drama - Part II
Jake: What's the problem?
Josh: Stop repeatedly asking shelley places, cause she doesnt want it, and its an invasion i dont appriciate
