Angie’s Right Leg, J-Lo’s Nipple, Oscar Frocks and Chickens.

Is it indecent to write “Nipple” in the title of a blog post? I hope not.

Here’s me making a duckface with a chicken who couldn’t make a duckface with me because he’s a chicken whose face can’t move:

Speaking of chickens, regard: a photograph of some rescued battery hens wearing sweaters.

Awwww. Say no to nuggets!

And on to the post…

Well friends, after almost 2 years of relentlessly live-Tweeting every notable (and not-so-notable) life moment, every cute animal I’ve run into on the street, and countless bits of random online hilarity, I’ve finally hit 7000 followers on Twitter.

Angelina Jolie’s right leg, on the other hand (foot?) had over 22,000 followers at (Word)press time, less than 24 hours after the account was established.

This undoubtedly secures Angie’s leg as the true star of last night’s Academy Awards. In my mind, at least — which is pretty much the same thing as the entirety of the Internet, anyway.

J-Lo’s Nipple has a modest 3,376 followers at the moment, which is strange to me because her (her?) Tweets are a lot more entertaining than Leg’s. And the slip itself is way more controversial – did it happen, didn’t it? Controversy always plays well across multiple platforms.

Jennifer Lopez’s nipple must be Canadian.

This is what Angelina Jolie would look like if both of her legs were showing, courtesy of some guy on Reddit:

And this is what Angelina Jolie’s leg would look like in a bowl of mushroom soup:

Cream of Jolie! Make your own leg-bomb here.

For me, the memefication of Jolie’s has proven, once again, that the web is making contemporary TV relevant for my generation. The only reason I even tuned in to the Academy Awards at all was so that the Twitter jokes in my stream would make sense. “Can’t anybody just watch shows anymore?” asked my dad.

Nope. We need to participate. Be seen. Voice off. Feel like PART of the action.

If I hadn’t already produced a story about this (two years ago) I’d do it right now. Maybe I still shall, in a different format. And, you know, better. (scrub to minute 8-ish)

    I would be remiss not to tell you right now who I feel was best dressed, since every other blogger already has…

    Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton, Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace and Viola Davis in Vera Wang round out the top three for me, followed by Jessica Chastain in Alexander McQueen, Gwyneth Douchetard in Tom Ford, Kristen Wiig in J. Mendel, Tina Fey in Carolina Herrera (PEPLUM!), and Emma Stone in Giambattista Valli (NECK BOW!).

    Contenders for LOL’s worst dressed would include this chick, this chick and Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman… if we were mean like that… or had enough authority to actually call anybody the “worst” of anything.

    BEST.

  • Internet Memes 101: LOL at Podcamp 2012

    Happy Sunday, my crazy nasty*ss honey readers!

    Nary a blog post all weekend from this lass, eh? My apologies (because I know you live and die by the regularity of my blog posts. What up, Obama family? Thanks for reading!) — it’s been a busy one though.

    More on the lot of my adventures (plus some huge news) later, but first: Internet Memes 101 at Podcamp 2012, WHAAAAT?

    This was my third year at Podcamp (year one, year two) and I’d been toying with the idea of presenting for a few weeks. So, at the very last minute I finagled my way into a spot and tossed together the only thing I felt passionate enough to spend both Thursday and Friday nights inside the Matrix working on:

    I had expected that maybe Casie, Sean and a few of my friends from Vinyl Countdown would show up if they weren’t too busy fending off ravenous fans after their session.

    To my delight though, the room was already filling up as I arrived to plug in. Too bad said room was in a basement with no freaking Internet connection.

    Fortunately, Picard was there to save the day by securing a BETTER room upstairs in about 5 seconds flat. Hey hey! (THANK YOU JOHN!)

    The entire group marched up 3 flights of stairs through the Rogers Communications Centre with me. These people are obviously as dedicated to Internet hilarity as I am (and maybe you too, since you are reading this blog), which makes them fooking stars:

    Ethernet! Great success! John Leschinski rules at LIFE!!!

    The feedback I got from Twitter after the presentation was cool. Being told I’m funny feels better than anything else (save for being told I’m SUPER RICH, but that’s just an assumption. I’ve never been rich. I bet it feels great.)

    Thanks again to everyone who came out for real. You made this little blonde nerd’s week!

    If you didn’t get a chance to see it live, here are the slides. Many won’t make sense or be as good without the verbal commentary / jokes behind them, but there are some funny videos and lots of weird crap so it’s still worthwhile I think.

    I should have included blue waffle in things not to google (DON’T DO IT) and Badger Badger in classics. *sigh* There really are more memes out there on the World Wide Web than anyone could ever document in full… Except for KnowYourMeme. They do it. I don’t.

    WAH, give me a break. I am but one cat and the Oscar red carpet show is about to begin. Want more information about Internet Memes? GOOGLE IT :)

    Alright, It’s time to get my judge on. You know, Tweet about how much I love everything that isn’t touching Goopy Paltrow or any of the other Hollywonks I can’t stand.

    Fingers crossed Jean DuJardin has a wardrobe malfunction :)
