I remember hearing “technologic” by Daft Punk for the first time during a house-party scene on the O.C. I thought it was the bomb sheezy and I totally wanted to bone Ryan Atwood & Seth Cohen.
Now, I think Reddit is the bomb sheezy and I want to bone Pete Cashmore and moot, so it only make sense that I’m loving on INTERNETIC. Urlesque’s delighfully webby remix of the original 2005 Daft Punk hit is over 9000 percent blogworthy.

Hurry hurry, friends!
You only have ONE DAY left to vote for the best of the web over at urlesque!
Who do you think will sweep the third annual Urlies?
I predict Antoine Dodson and Gregory Brothers will take home at leaasssst one golden computer – and not only because I’m (still) obsessed with that meme. It was revealed yesterday that Bed Intruder was the most viewed video of the entire year (49 million + views = more than the entire population of Canada). That’s got to count for something.
We here at laurenoutloud.com like to keep things nonpartisan when it comes to politics (and, more importantly, web meme competitions). Thus, I won’t reveal who I voted for in any of the categories except for hero of the year:
Y’all know we love us some Zach Anner, right?
“The next thing we’re gunna learn to cook… IS TAKE OUT!” bwahahaha…
Voting polls for the third annual Urlies close tomorrow at midnight, so get on that mmmmkay?
I’ve got my work holiday party tonight. I probably won’t blog about it because I’m too busy to blog about anything that takes me more than 20 minutes to blog about.
I’m seriously stoked for the holidays so that I can have a chance to breathe again.
Check it! I was on the Urly show this week! I skyped into the Urleqsque headquarters in New York City to sing about garlic naan and make funny faces at the webcam. I was obnoxiously peppy and stuck my tongue out way too much, but I won tl;dr so I’ll consider this experience a win. Thanks a kabillion for having me on the show, Urlbots! I love you guys so hard.
It’s been a busy week up here in CaNAnaDUH-land for this smiley blonde Internet kid. For many kids, I’m sure. Big things are poppin’ behind the scenes… you’ll hear all about it soon enough, I promise (and will you EVER!).
But right now, It’s Friday Friday! Time for me to blog about what made me smile in meatspace and in cyberspace this week.
- The AmexCanvas challenge on Tuesday was awesome.
American Express rounded up a crop of local bloggers and pitted us against eachother in a friendly digital design competition for charity. I like how Jen wrote it: “Toronto’s Twitterati Pack a Tent to Splatter a Giant American Express Canvas“. That’s exactly what we did!
We were called up to the stage by Colin Mochrie (love him!) two at a time and handed fancy digital paintbrushes. Mine reminded me of Sailor Moon’s sceptre, so I yelled “Moon… Prism… Power!” into the microphone before I started “painting”.
I think about 3 people in the building caught the reference… everybody else now thinks I’m a nut bar if they didn’t already. But that’s okay because… well, I’m kind of a nut bar.
I may not have one the grand prize (or an iPad like Casie and Ticka, who drew the lucky scratch cards. Congrats to you ladies too!) but I DID have fun, and it’s always nice to catch up with my Toronto blogfriends IRL – especially when it involves free cookies.
Also, in real life awesomeness = MY LUNCH.
Yes, yes, it’s hyperstereotypical to post about my food but I swear to you friends – the curried carrot & ginger soup and Adzuki Sesame roti from The Annex Hodgepodge is truly blogworthy.
I’ve had the pleasure of trying three new vegan restaurants this week and have two more scheduled for next. I hear the corn soup at One Love is to die for. Am I right? I guess we shall see.
Working down at Queen’s Quay was nice with the water and all, but The Annex is a much hipper hood. More students, independent restaurants, and cool shops – Not so many suits, crappy franchises and tourists. I actually feel a Torontonian working in Toronto now.
It’s a good feeling
Other bomb happenings: A solid work week, free candy at the office (yay, post-halloween!), FINALLY getting to watch Scott Pilgrim, Lil’ Wayne getting out of jail (What up, Weezy!?), pimping my home office enough to finally use it annnd a whole bunch of other stuff.
Let’s move on to the Internet, because I’m running out of time and it’s really much more interesting than my rambling on about daily minutiae. Primarily because you can CLICK ON IT!
If the following things don’t crack open that face of yours, a doctor’s visit is probably in order. Now, it’ll cost you a pretty penny for a “sense of humour” implant, BUT if you can find a crooked dentist, a tank of nitrous is relatively cheap and trust me – it’ll do the trick jusssst fine.
If all else fails, I think whipped cream is on sale at No Frills right now.
I am Hungary (I want to be friends with these people):
Lane Community College’s Tobacco Free Campus rap. (How does this only have 8,325 views? I’m having a conniption over here! Soooo funny to watch everybody’s mom play NWA)
VISUAL PUNS. Do you get these?
The coolest math teacher ever. He’s my crush of the month, btw. Effing brilliant, this guy:
This music video for Hermanos Inglesos’ Wanderland by Kristof Luyckx. Not so much funny as it is fantastic – but it’s sort of funny too. Especially minute 2:17. wtf?
Same deal with Benga’s Baltimore Clap video. Dooope, but not funny. Not funny at all
I saw Benga live this summer. He’s amazing.
Last but not least, the Puff Dog meme – for this alone:
I’m out. Gymming it up before I hit the road.
I’m getting out of dodge this weekend. The cold’s a coming so I’ve got to go home and fetch my mittens, coats, snowboard gear and the soup that my mom will make for me. I hope she’s reading this and makes me soup. She’s the best. Best cook I know and she can make TWO emoticons now. The most important ones of all:
I love my mommy. And I love you too, Internet friend.
