My friend and co-worker had shot a video of a really cool mechanical spider that his brother built and added it to a story about it. That was about a year ago.
Today, he found his video on the MSN Video website, with no attribution and ads displayed alongside it. See for yourself. And the video is now tagged “StupidVideos.com” and is available here, uploaded by “Anonymous”.
I think MSN’s editors need to do a better job of checking where a video is coming from before they decide it is in the public domain. Is it hard to figure out if a video is not in the public domain? Yes. Is that an excuse to not do it? Of course not.
I think every cat owner dreads the inevitable hairball, especially if they go unnoticed as you stumble to the bathroom in the middle of the night. Yeah.
Anyway, a sign like this would be great. Especially if it could place itself ;)
Cat owner note: we were on Medi-cal food for Nala for a long time, she being a ‘geriatric’ kitty now. Anywho, after many months of her giving me the evil eye, I figured out she simply didn’t like it anymore. We switched to Eukanuba for Seniors (the only brand we could find that did not have meat ‘byproducts’ as the first ingredient, but rather meat itself) and no more hairballs. At all. It used to be fairly frequent. Just goes to show you that food from the vet is not always better.

You, like me, may have been wondering why Jack Nicholson appeared completely bald at the Oscars. Considering how much face time he got during broadcast, I am thinking everyone was curious.
Well, as you might have guessed, it was for a movie.
According to People, Jack is filming a Rob Reiner film called The Bucket List in which he stars as a terminal cancer patient trying to complete a list of goals before he dies.
And so now you know. :)

Blogging is serious work ;)
Along the same lines, Ianiv grabbed some video of me last week liveblogging Gilmore Girls. With a script an average of 35 pages longer than most 1 hour shows, liveblogging Gilmore Girls can be quite the feat. One I will be repeating again tonight.
