Have you heard about the Oscar-nominated animated short LOGORAMA? It’s about 15-minutes long, and takes place in a world where everything – and we do mean EVERYTHING – is a logo.
The police, for example, are Bibendum (you may know Bibendum as “The Michelin Tire Guy”).
The zoo contains the Democratic Party elephant and Izod alligator logos.
Generic passers-by are the AOL guy and the BIC pen people. If you know of a company that has a vehicle as their logo, you can be sure that it will be seen driving around this Logo city.
The plot is your basic cop-versus-bad guy story, with NSFW language that seems to have been pulled from a Tarintino movie. But the creativity that went into creating a world made entirely of corporate logos is astounding.
Web Watch picked Logorama to win this category in our annual Oscars movie pool, without having even seen the film. Now that we have watched it, we’re not changing our selection at all.
Why? Because plants will help clean the air in your house more efficiently and naturally than anything else you can find. The folks at NASA even determined that you should have one plant for every 100 square feet of living space in your house.
But now an entire whole year has passed since, and Web Watch dutifully went to the local grocery store to buy our annual allottment of Thin Mints, Tagalongs, and Samoas from the Girl Scouts (and their parents) trying to sell off their excess inventory*.
Are you one of those people who have trouble making a toast or otherwise speaking in public? For some folks, singing in the shower is easy, but singing in front of an audience is scary. Speaking into a microphone instead of singing can be equally nerve-wracking for people who are uncomfortable being the center of attention.
If there’s one thing that Web Watch has learned from watching hours of Food Network programming, it’s that there are many different ways to maim yourself with a kitchen knife as there are foods that need to be sliced and diced.
While it may not be a way to tell if what you’re listening to is THE perfect song or not, if you’re a LAST.FM user than we can at least identify if the key of your favorite songs all fall into the same ballpark or not.
In other words, do you favor listening to songs that are in the same key or not?
Web Watch is sure that you’re asking how Fresno earned this vaulted honor. It was quite easy, actually.
Men’s Health took into account the following pieces of information:
Death rate from alcoholic liver disease
Deaths due to DUI
The number of DUI arrests
The number of admitted binge drinkers in the past month
The severity — or lack thereof — of DUI penalties
Cities were rated on a scale with 1 being the worst in the selected category. The lower your overall score ended up, the higher your city ranked on the “drunkest city” list. Let’s take a look, shall we?
