In this article from KSTP.COM, the 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS admits to having searched one-by-one all the names of the University of Minnesota's football team roster on both Facebook and Myspace.

"5 EYEWITNESS NEWS spent time Wednesday searching the Gophers roster on Web sites MySpace and Facebook and found some images that might not reflect the team very well."

So what'd they find? Everything you'd expect people to have in their myspace. Only these poor kids are being targetted because they are athletes. They all got kicked off of the team for party pictures and whatnot. "Suggestive pictures" as news agencies often site.

My question is: What the hell is going on? News agencies are digging and digging for people who were normal enough to have some funny pictures of them drinking/makingout/screwing around on facebook.

Universities are starting to tell their athletes that they may not use facebook or social networking sites because of the ease with which they can be found and publicized.

Best way to avoid this, Keep your private information... private...
I'd advise anyone who does have naught pics of them online, to try to a)limit their exposure, or b) Remove them altogether. Everytime you apply for a job they run your name now, don't let some screwy pictures online cost you a job or worse.

More reasons to love Hunter S. Thumpson

Hunter S. Thompson, inventor of gonzo journalism; crazed drug user; "exotic consultant" for many movies based upon his works. Heck; this here blog is named after one of his books/movies.

Hunter S. Thompson is no doubt one of my heroes; the stream of consciousness type of writing that Gonzo journalism employs is awesome. Just letting the words pour out a they come; it can be downright therapeutic sometimes.

Well, yesturday I found yet another reason to love Hunter S. Thompson - and that is the movie "Where The Buffalo Roam".

If you're a fan at all of "Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas"; then you will love "where the buffalo roam".
It's the same crazy Thompson; but this time on the presidential campaign trail. This time he is played by Bill Murray, instead of Johnny Depp. At first it might seem unlikely that Murray's performance could be as good as Depps - but it is... It's incredible how both of these actors were able to soak up what being like Thompson is like. They made themselves so weird; so crazed; that they seem identical to footage I've seen of Thompson himself. For that kind of footage, you probably wanna check out the documentary "Breakfast With Thompson" - also Awesome.

My buddy Mike: The Real Cookie Monster

Hey yall, this here is a short film I made, documenting my friend Mike's insanely unhealthy eating habits.

I made it to:
A) Let people laugh at how gross he is
B) Show him how unhealthy he is and provide him with like an "intervention" of sorts for his diet.

It did not work; he just laughed at himself on video and told me to keep rewinding the part when he burps. I dunno, you try and tell a buddy you're concerned for his well-being and he dosen't take you seriously..

Trippen Table Drumming: Part 2

This is the 2nd of the 2 beats which I recorded on that fateful day at the park. This one is named "Tonite"; sure it dosen't make much sense but ain't it awesome. Too bad I wasn't at the Table for this one, I really missed out.

Which one do you guys like better? Both are pretty silly.
I exspecially like the screwing around after the "Tonite" video.
