Tom-Foolery vs. Shenanigans

For the past two years I've been working on a research project to understand the difference between Tom-Foolery and Shenanigans. I think I cracked the code tonight. It's actually quite simple.

Shenanigans are pre-conceived. Afterwards you will look at a picture of a shenanigan and say, "Oh yeah, I was going for Jesse the Body Ventura there".

Tom-Foolery is when an unknown force takes over and you have no control over the situation. When looking at pictures of Tom-Foolery the standard response is a short quick nervous laugh. Behind the scenes your brain says, "what the fuck were you doing dumbass".

The real difficulty is decoding if an event is Tom-Foolery or a Shenanigan in real time. That will be part two of my upcoming special on NOVA.

i totally deserve it

i guess for each day of fun at SXSW, i will endure a day of unrelenting illness. not the 'i don't feel very well' kind of illness. it's 'fuck the shot glass' and chug straight from the 'Tussin bottle (thanks for the tip Blynch). i woke up this morn feeling more light headed than should be for this here sick. looked down to find i had some good ol' fashioned morning wood. not that it was borrowing all that much from my brain, but it was enough to make me think about stepping on kitten heads and biting my tongue to make it go away. i'm a gross ball of snot sick. what the fuck did i have to be horny about? at least the boner went away quickly after my deterance thoughts and i don't have to wonder why 'Tussin and dead kittens gives me wood. in my estimation, i should have two more days of this nonsense before i start getting pissed. for two more days, it still will be worth it. two more.

is probably one of the greatest movies of all time. I have one queston though. Say I'm a bad guy. Why am I "less apt to get nervy" if Doy Holiday "is on the street halitzer"? Personaly, I think that would add to my nervynous.

if they only knew

it seems AdCritic and Creativity Magazine asked the people from their top design firm winners what their favorite things from 2006 were and low and behold

Mike Rubenstein, Creative, The Barbarian Group
These guys from Oklahoma—Derek Doublin, Matt Brown and Ray Prewitt—did a video piece called The News that I really can't get enough of. It made the rounds on YouTube in August or so, supposedly simulating the nightly news through the eyes of a PCP addict, but it's really got enough merit as good, clean absurdist comedy. We've pretty much been laughing at that video nonstop for three solid months now, encouraging each other to eat pennies. Beyond that, the American Express ad with Wes Anderson was pretty genius, and Coke "Happiness Factory" was really gorgeous. They're the two ads that I don't mind having to sit through over and over again while waiting for the previews at the movie theater. They're the only ones, though.

i wonder if he would take it back if he ever got wind of the other bullshit we pull in this here great state.

When was the last time you sat down and said, "I'm going to enjoy the perfect Greyhound". It really is a nice drink if made properly (oh screw you it's always good). Currently, I have 4 ice cubes in mine and DAMN that shit is delicous. Wait, there are 5 ice cubes.
