Viral marketing... ARG trailhead... or genuine phenomenon?

This site has taken the interwebz by storm and sparked up much interest.

According to the site, this man (referred to as "ThisMan") has appeared in the dreams of thousands of people all across the world. Mostly appearing as a benevolent force, he has appeared on multiple continents in many different dreams. The story begins-

In January 2006 in New York, the patient of a well-known psychiatrist draws the face of a man that has been repeatedly appearing in her dreams. In more than one occasion that man has given her advice on her private life. The woman swears she has never met the man in her life.

That portrait lies forgotten on the psychiatrist's desk for a few days until one day another patient recognizes that face and says that the man has often visited him in his dreams. He also claims he has never seen that man in his waking life.

The psychiatrist decides to send the portrait to some of his colleagues that have patients with recurrent dreams. Within a few months, four patients recognize the man as a frequent presence in their own dreams.

We are then left to assume, that by word of mouth, this image is spread around like a chain letter and more people come forward to admit they have dreamt of this man.


Greggallows just sent me this link to support the argument that this is in fact viral marketing/an ARG.

S. Darko Movie Review

Fans of the movie Donnie Darko may have heard of the straight to DVD sequel about Donnie's little sister, S. Darko. I have been afraid to watch this, because I like the original so much and I hadn't heard any real stellar reviews of the sequel, but I thought I would give it a shot anyhow.

Up to the minute review :

23 minutes in : Is that the same girl from the original? Nah, couldn't be (Edit: It was her, i'll be damned). Really overacted stereotypical characters. Is that Jessie from Saved by the Bell? Creepy, Creepy, Interesting. Is that a Jake Gyllenhaal lookalike?

43 minutes in : That IS Jessie from Saved By the Bell! Weird for the sake of being weird. Kind of sort of maybe starting to see where this could expand on the mythology of the original. Warm beer and dry humping to Journey. OMG That chick is wearing a Daniel Johnston shirt!

52 minutes in: It's probably not all the acting's fault, it's probably mostly the scriptwriters. You can only work with what you're given, really. My biggest fear is that they will take this in a direction they can't write themselves out of later.

1 hr 17minutes in: Kinda predictable, lots of plays on the original so far but not in the right ways.

1hr 27 min: *Headdesk*

End : This might very possibly be the worst ending of a movie I have ever seen in my entire life. I was willing to forgive the lack of coherent plot line up to this point, if it all came through at the end. But it didn't, it totally bombed.

Only watched Credits to see who writer/director were. Nathan Atkins and Chris Fisher, I hope you both die in a fire.

Recap : If you like Donnie Darko, do not ever watch this movie for any reason ever.

Attracting Women 101

Step 1 : The Clothes.

wolf t-shirt Pictures, Images and Photos

This item has wolves on it which makes it intrinsically sweet and worth 5 stars by itself, but once I tried it on, that's when the magic happened. After checking to ensure that the shirt would properly cover my girth, I walked from my trailer to Wal-mart with the shirt on and was immediately approached by women. The women knew from the wolves on my shirt that I, like a wolf, am a mysterious loner who knows how to 'howl at the moon' from time to time (if you catch my drift!). The women that approached me wanted to know if I would be their boyfriend and/or give them money for something they called meth. I told them no, because they didn't have enough teeth, and frankly a man with a wolf-shirt shouldn't settle for the first thing that comes to him.

I arrived at Wal-mart, mounted my courtesy-scooter (walking is such a drag!) sitting side saddle so that my wolves would show. While I was browsing tube socks, I could hear aroused asthmatic breathing behind me. I turned around to see a slightly sweaty dream in sweatpants and flip-flops standing there. She told me she liked the wolves on my shirt, I told her I wanted to howl at her moon. She offered me a swig from her mountain dew, and I drove my scooter, with her shuffling along side out the door and into the rest of our lives. Thank you wolf shirt.

Pros: Fits my girthy frame, has wolves on it, attracts HB10s
Cons: Only 3 wolves (could probably use a few more on the 'guns'), cannot see wolves when sitting with arms crossed, wolves would have been better if they glowed in the dark.

Don't be sorry if you get what you ask for

BEIJING (Reuters) – A Chinese man was pushed off a bridge by an angry passer-by after his threat to commit suicide held up traffic for five hours, Chinese media reported on Saturday.

Retired soldier Lian Jiansheng, 66, broke through a police cordon and reached out to shake the hand of would-be jumper Chen Fuchao before shoving him off the bridge.

"I pushed him off because jumpers like Chen are very selfish. Their action violates a lot of public interests," Lai was quoted as saying by the China Daily newspaper.

"They do not really dare to kill themselves. Instead, they just want to raise the relevant government authorities' attention to their appeals."

Viral marketing for S. Darko

The sequel to the cult hit Donnie Darko had some viral marketing to promote it. Some pretty cool stuff.
PS- I saw the movie. Sometimes it felt like a remake and not really a sequel. But it did do a better job at explaining what "the end of the world" means, and did see the return of Frank the Bunny... kind of. Definitely worth a rental if you have nothing better to do on a Sunday afternoon.

Is this kid for real? Or is this another famous "social experiment"?

I've been following this kid for awhile. At first I laughed at him and was going to troll his channel. Then I watched a few more vids and I felt bad for him (because he's been attacked by trolls to no end) and have thought that this may be a suicide waiting to happen. But now that I'm rewatching his videos... I think this may be all a setup. He's a twelve year old who's channel is less than 2 months old with over 2k views on his vids. What do you all think???

I used to be gay...??? He's twelve!!!

Kumar meet... Obama???

Actor Kal Penn is trading in his role on TV medical drama House for a public service position with the White House.

A White House spokesman confirmed on Tuesday that the young actor is set to join the Obama administration as an associate director in the Office of Public Liaison. The story was first reported Entertainment Weekly magazine.
The Indo-American actor, whose real name is Kalpen Modi, will serve as a liaison connecting the Obama administration with arts and entertainment groups, as well as with the Asian-American and Pacific Islander communities.

Though he rose to fame in the Harold and Kumar stoner comedies and the Van Wilder films, Penn graduated to more serious fare, including the drama The Namesake and TV shows such as 24 and House.

Goodbye Peyton and Lucas (or - "FINALLY!")

It looks like Chad Michael Murray might not be the only longtimer bidding adieu to One Tree Hill come Season 7.
Not long after the CW announced another pick-up for the serial, The Chad's leading lady, Hilarie Burton, issued what for all intents and purposes is a goodbye message to her fans.
All but confirming an online report that she, like Murray, won't be continuing her run, Burton says in a video posted to her Wilmington, North Carolina-based production company's website, "I want to clear up one thing that's very important to me. I want everyone to know how much I love Peyton Sawyer, and my crew.... I don't want anyone to think I'm abandoning a place that's been very good to me."

Will the real "Prawo Jazdy" please stand up

DUBLIN (Reuters) – Irish police have solved the mystery of a Polish recidivist who clocked up 50 traffic offences on different addresses and who was never caught, after one officer noticed his name meant driving licence in Polish.

An internal police memo cited by Irish papers on Thursday said officers taking details of Polish traffic offenders had been mistakenly using "Prawo Jazdy," printed in the top right corner of the driving licence, as the holder's name.

"Prawo Jazdy is actually the Polish for driving licence and not the first and surname on the licence," the police memo dated June 2007 said. "It is quite embarrassing to see the system has created Prawo Jazdy as a person with over 50 identities."

A police spokesman declined to comment on the reports.

About 200,000 Polish people flocked to Ireland during the boom years of its "Celtic Tiger" economy but a poll in November indicated a third of them planned to leave due to recession.

The greatest Valentine's gift... EVER!!!


Staying healthy is the key to keeping yourself alive. Video game characters know this all too well. When your red heart gauge reaches zero... you die. For non-bitmap humans like you this is more of a challenge. But luckily after extensive study at ThinkGeek labs we've determined that people feel best when they are in close proximity to something that they adore. Don't understand? Well luckily for you we've created this amazing 8-Bit Dynamic Life Shirt to illustrate.
Buy one of these glowing shirts for yourself, and gift one to your significant other (boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, fembot 2000...). During your normal activities two and a half pixelated hearts will light up on your shirt. Hey... you're depressed and in need of a recharge. But get within hugging distance of your significant other wearing the matching shirt and suddenly the hearts on both of your shirts start to light up until you're fully powered up. Go too far astray from the source of your affections and you'll drop back down to two and a half hearts again. Got it?

Fail police fail

(man my city/state just rocks in the news world lately)

CHICAGO - A 14-year-old boy accused of impersonating a police officer and going on patrol has pleaded not guilty.

On Saturday the teen, wearing an officer's uniform, walked into a police station and was assigned to go on patrol. He partnered with another officer for about five hours before the ruse was discovered.

The boy did not have a gun, never issued any tickets and didn't drive the squad car, Deputy Superintendent Daniel Dugan said.

Assistant Superintendent James Jackson said the ruse was discovered only after the boy's patrol with an actual officer ended Saturday. Officers noticed his uniform lacked a star that is part of the regulation uniform.

Marvel Team-up: Spider-Man & Barack Obama

It's a Brand New Day for the United States of America and Spider-Man's along for the ride!

To celebrate the upcoming inauguration of Barack Obama, Marvel is proud to present an all-new story teaming up one of the world's most recognizable political figures with the world's greatest super hero as President-Elect Obama joins Spider-Man in "Spidey Meets the President!"

Written by Zeb Wells with art by Todd Nauck and Frank D'Armata, the story takes place in Washington, D.C. on Inauguration Day and finds one of Spider-Man's oldest foes attempting to thwart the swearing in ceremony of the 44th President of the United States. Fans can read it in its entirety in Marvel Comics' AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #583, available in comic book shops nationwide on January 14th, 2009. Look for the special variant cover by artist Phil Jimenez featuring the President-Elect and Spider-Man!

"When we heard that President-Elect Obama is a collector of Spider-Man comics, we knew that these two historic figures had to meet in our comics' Marvel Universe," says Marvel's Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada. "Historic moments such as this one can be reflected in our comics because the Marvel Universe is set in the real world. A Spider-Man fan moving into the Oval Office is an event that must be commemorated in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man."

No more burgers-before-bros on Facebook

Whopper lovers and Facebook freeloaders alike are mad as heck … and well, I am too (though for slightly different reasons). Just eight days into the blogosphere-infamous "Whopper Sacrifice" campaign — in which Facebookers were encouraged to dump 10 "friends" for a free-Whopper coupon — the Burger King application unceremoniously ceased to function. Bing bang boom, no free Whoppers for anyone.

It’s not that I actually wanted a Whopper. I was more excited by the social experiment of building a profile, accepting 10 friends (including two hardcore vegans and my boss), and summarily dumping them in such a way that they’d receive an official notice via the "Whopper Sacrifice" Facebook application informing them that their friendship to me was worth roughly 1/10th of a fast food hamburger coupon (each). Because dude, that’s hilarious.

In its brief existence, "Whopper Sacrifice" collected 82,771 people who dumped 233,906 friends, each of which received a memo that only advanced the viral campaign.
Why did this happen? The world may never know. Repeated efforts to contact Facebook resulted in the same statement the company PR Bot e-mailed everyone in the media:

"We encourage creativity from developers and companies using Facebook Platform, but we also must ensure that applications follow users’ expectations of privacy. After extensive discussions with the developer, we have not disabled the application but have made some changes to the application’s behavior to assure that users’ expectations of privacy are maintained."

Delete 10 Friends, Get a Whopper

Fast-food chain Burger King has created "Whopper Sacrifice," a Facebook app that will give you a coupon for a free hamburger if you delete 10 people from your friends list.

"Now is the time to put your fair-weather Web friendships to the test," the Whopper Sacrifice site explains. "Install Whopper Sacrifice on your Facebook profile, and we'll reward you with a free flame-broiled Whopper when you sacrifice ten of your friends."

The funniest part: The "sacrifices" show up in your activity feed. So it'll say, for example, "Caroline sacrificed Josh Lowensohn for a free Whopper." Unfortunately, you can't delete your whole friends list and eat free (however unhealthily) for a week. The promotion is limited to one coupon per Facebook account.

Doctor Who!? BBC Names Unknown As New Time Lord

The producers of BBC's time-travel drama Doctor Who have named their choice for the new actor to bring the intergalactic time traveler to life, and he definitely puts the "Who?" in the title.
Matt Smith, a virtual unknown, has been named as the 11th actor to portray The Doctor, according to the BBC News. Viewers will begin seeing Smith in 2010, when he replaces David Tennant, who announced his intentions to leave the show in October.

At 26, Smith, who has been seen in the BBC political series Party Animals and on stage in The History Boys, is the youngest to every fill the Doctor's shoes. Smith is believed to have beat out heavy competition from bigger names such as John Simm and David Morrissey. His casting also puts to rest rumors that the Doctor would be played by a woman for the first time, with names such as Catherine Zeta Jones and Jennifer Saunders being tossed around.

Executive producer and head writer Steven Moffat said it was Smith's original take on the role that made him the one.

"As soon as Matt walked through the door, and blew us away with a bold and brand new take on the Time Lord, we knew we had our man," he said. "2010 is a long time away, but rest assured the 11th Doctor is coming — and the universe has never been so safe."

Smith said he is "proud and honored" to take on the role that's been famous in England for more than four decades.

"David Tennant has made the role his own, brilliantly, with grace, talent and persistent dedication. I hope to learn from the standards set by him," Smith said. "The challenge for me is to do justice to the show's illustrious past, my predecessors, and most importantly, to those who watch it. I really cannot wait."

Smith will begin shooting this summer. Tennant will film four specials that will air in 2009 before taking his final bow.
