Benny Lava

Tuesday, December 11th, 2007

Contemporary, indeed:

My loony bun is fine Benny Lava!
Minor bun engine made Benny Lava!
Anybody need this sign? Benny Lava!
You need a bun to bite Benny Lava.

Neue Deutsche Welle 2.0 (Da Da Da)

Sunday, February 4th, 2007

In case you’re roughly my age and from Germany (or for some odd reason ended up spending the ’80s there), you know what I mean: The Meebo Super Bowl XIL ad features one of Trio’s (the band) big hits.

I clearly remember when they would perform on the more traditional music shows on TV at the time (this was before the dawn of cable in Germany — all we had was three and a half friggin’ channels) and older folks would shake their heads (in what can best be described as a combination of both befuddlement and disgust) and go like: What’s that. That’s not music. He can’t even sing!

Imagine what you would have to do today to cause a scandal…

Colbert Report: The New AT&T

Friday, January 19th, 2007

Best show on television. Period.

Here’s another example why: The New AT&T


Monday, January 1st, 2007

Audio, video, disco. Felix qui potuit rerum cognocscere causas. Docendo discimus. Ne discere cessa. Audiatur et altera pars. Bonum commune communitatis. Res publica. Citius, altius, fortius. Ad astra. Viribus unitis.

Semper ubi sub ubi.

With Holiday Season around the corner, it’s that time of year again to brush up on US pop culture classics. Enjoy!

World Fitness 100

Saturday, November 11th, 2006

Today is day zero of my upcoming World Fitness 100 (an amazing personal wellness program that I have yet to get trademarked). You know, that whole anima sana in corpore sano business. Should help with some of the things I’m working on right now.

So, see you again on February 19, 2007.

Oh, and to all my listeners back in beautiful Rhineland, Germany: Alaaaaaaaaf!!

Friday, November 10th, 2006

I’m spending the day at the Citizen Summit at Citizen Space (Citizen Agency’s new office — nice place). As somewhat of an unexpected treat, Dave McLure did a round of is entrepreneurial improv theatre that he co-invented: Foo Camp 2006, HalfBaked, & the Art of Geekery.

How it works:

As a group, collect 50 words. Break up in groups of five. Choose two words and announce your company name ( Come up with a business plan (name, concept/product, revenue model, marketing plan, logo, tagline). Pitch to experts and VCs. Have your startup judged and voted on by the group. All in under 30 minutes. Celebrate the insanity!

Can you do something very quickly in short format? It’s all about speed!

This was first done at Foo Camp 2006. The winner then? Bottlecap Porn.

The winner today? Donut Divorve. Divorces are usually very time-consuming, costly and not a lot of fun. Donut Divorce wants you to be able to get a divorce in the time it takes to buy a donut. It’s an online service. Both parties can invite all their friends and family to help duke out the details of the split. Donut Divorce makes money by taking 10 percent of any settlement that’s reached, which — in part — will be redistributed amont the contributors. Of course, there’s point rewards and reputation systems and lots of web 2.0 bells an whistles.


Freudenshow — Trash comedy TV from Germany for people with attention deficit disorder

Friday, November 10th, 2006

So I finally got around to watching the first three episodes of Die Freudenshow. Comes with a flavor of subversiveness that I like. Might be on to something. Check it out!

Free Hugs

Saturday, November 4th, 2006

I’m sitting at Lulu Carpenter’s Cafe in Santa Cruz, CA. And since Santa Cruz is known for being a town full of weird people, I might as well point to the Free Hugs Campaign.

Sometimes, a hug is all what we need.

Free hugs is a real life controversial story of Juan Mann, A man whos sole mission was to reach out and hug a stranger to brighten up their lives.

In this age of social disconnectivity and lack of human contact, the effects of the Free Hugs campaign became phenomenal.

As this symbol of human hope spread accross the city, police and officials ordered the Free Hugs campaign BANNED. What we then witness is the true spirit of humanity come together in what can only be described as awe inspiring.

Watch the video on Youtube.

And now imagine and go save the world…
