Now you know and knowing is just a touch over half the battle.

Reunion to Racket Rage: A Day in the life of… (4/1)

Posted by goldwriting on April 1, 2008

Happy April Fool’s Day, dear readers! My best wishes go out to all of in hopes that you don’t get horribly rooked by conmen on the street or needlessly frightened by the masked psychopath in the alley behind your work. Oh wait, that last guy might be real. Umm…duck. (p.s. since it is the day of not-quite-factual information, my daily sources might also be compromised, so take today’s bits with a grain of salt, then a little pepper, a dollop of extra virgin olive oil, and you’re good to go. Fabulous!)

1 – It’s getting pretty cold in Hell right now because the word on the beat is all five members of New Kids on the Block are going to appear on the Today show this Friday to announce their reunion. Once again, this is another case of negligence. If Obama was in charge, he would never let this kind of thing happen. I hate you, Bush! [via Starpulse]

2 – Nothing is more poetic than a shot of someones feet: [via Garfield Minus Garfield]

3 – Fitting that this bit of trivia would land on #3 since it has to do with possibly the most amazing trilogy to ever come to the screen. The Lord of the Rings? The Matrix trilogy? The original Star Wars? Oh no, none of these can even come close to the power in one pinky toe of Danny Trejo as he and Robert Rodriguez bring us The Machete Trilogy! Those are the tentative plans to expand the fictional trailer inside the Grindhouse movie into a trilogy of films following one man with many knives. Face it, the merchandising practically takes care of itself. [via Film School Rejects]

4 – People are starting to move into the new 90210 remake, while at the same time the price of peach pie and condoms is on the rise. Coincidence? I think not. [via ComingSoon]

5 – Here’s a big End of the Page thanks to The Jaunty Scamp and his review of our Off the Ledge t-shirts. Also, much respect for the name, makes me want to go sailing, but in pursuit of something, not for relaxation. Aargh! [via Shirt On Me]

6 – When the slow motion version of this video happens, I’m fairly positive it’s the devil laughing. Listen at the risk of your immortal soul (or more closely you just might feel bad for laughing at the kid getting knocked out by an exercise ball). [via GorillaMask via Break]

7 – Taking part in the spirit of the day, YouTube has played a wonderful prank that will both scare and delight the mass populace. I’m not gonna give it away (or gonna give you up), but take a moment and jump over to YouTube, then try to play any of the Featured videos. I think you’ll enjoy it immensely.

8 – The other side of Happy-Go-Lucky Wonderland: [via CollegeHumor via Explosm]

9 – This is why I hate April Fool’s Day. I get shown things I actually wish were true (not that this is the most amazing trailer, but I applaud the work that went into such an elaborate hoax): [via FilmDrunk]

10 – Take that McEnroe! The stakes have been raised when it comes to on-court abuse, this time, it’s self-abuse. (Oh, and the crazy dude won the match after going on a seven point rally after this. Advantage = Crazy) [via With Leather]
