Daft Hands - Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger (YouTube)
Get in on the Daft Hands meme now, before it becomes passe! Love this song, but the big problem with all of these videos is that it takes a minute before the guys start singing and the hands start vogueing. (You might prefer the version with teen girls in their underwear.)
Bible is America's favorite book: poll (Yahoo News)
How droll. Americans voted the Bible their favorite book even though they've never read it. If you could see me, I'm dancing the cha-cha offstage now.
Rumor confirmed: Google may buy my car (CNET)
Sort-of-funny parody of the endless litany of Google rumors. Onion probably did it way better.
A Call to Ban (Kotaku)
Wow, has this been a long time coming. For whatever reason, gaming supervoice N'Gai Croal brought up the Resident Evil 5 racism thing again, Kotaku covered it, and then a horde of asshat commenters proceeded to shake-and-bake Croal with all the usual insipid "we had white zombies in Resident Evil 2 and that wasn't racist either" bullshit. Kotaku's editors, supremely disappointed in that unleavened response, are now considering methods to cut the commenting mob.
When I first discovered Kotaku, only a few months after their launch, commenting was tightly controlled, invitation only, and EVERYTHING was readable. Bring it back, Kotaku, bring it back. Stop the unwashed commenters.
Grand Theft Auto IV: 11 Things Parents Should Know (What They Play)
A nice, even-handed writeup on what we know about GTAIV, written for the worried parent's perspective. Nothing condemning, just an overview. Even clears up a few items that will likely develop into nasty rumors anyway (RE: You can have SEX with HOOKERS and then KILL THEM!).
Although the Okami banner ad on the page did make me sad:
Aw. That's a pretty desperate slogan.
