Werner Herzog’s Note To His Cleaning Lady

> Now we must turn to the horrors of nature. I am afraid this is inevitable. Nature is not something to be coddled and accepted and held to your bosom like a wounded snake. Tell me, what was there before you were born? What do you remember? That is nature. Nature is a void. An emptiness. A vacuum. And speaking of vacuum, I am not sure you’re using the retractable nozzle correctly or applying the ‘full weft’ setting when attending to the lush carpets of the den. I found some dander there.

And I thought I was a Star Trek fan.

Say what you will about trekkers, but you have to admit, this guy’s home is nothing short of amazing.

Too bad he has to [move out because his ex-wife wants to sell the property](http://entertainment.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2012/01/26/10243286-divorce-forces-man-to-beam-out-of-star-trek-home). Why on earth would anyone want to leave this man? I wonder.

U not Berkeley enough – a journey of missed memes

I came home from work the other day to hear my son jammin’ to his self-styled lyrics of “its gett’n real in the Whole Food parkin lot, what’s the deal with these little shoppin’ carts they got?”
When I gave my wife that look saying, “where on Earth did he learn that,” my wife was shocked when she realized I had somehow missed one of the great YouTube memes, “Whole Foods Parking Lot.”

This inevitably led her to explain that the Berkeley remix was, in her opinion, much better, or least very Berkeley:

And today I discovered that the two behind these videos teamed up to make what they call the B-side to Whole Foods Parking Lot:

And now I am all caught up.


Signs you may already be an atheist

I am not one to randomly quote from a book I have never read, but this quote [found by Kottke](http://kottke.org/11/12/exact-nonsense) from Penn Jillette’s [God, No!: Signs You May Already Be an Atheist and Other Magical Tales](http://www.amazon.com/God-No-Already-Atheist-Magical/dp/145161036X) made me stop in my tracks for its brilliant obviousness, and for the fact that no matter what you believe, I don’t think one could possibly refute it.
> There is no god and that’s the simple truth. If every trace of any single religion died out and nothing were passed on, it would never be created exactly that way again. There might be some other nonsense in its place, but not that exact nonsense. If all of science were wiped out, it would still be true and someone would find a way to figure it all out again.


Pure NPR-Nerd Comedy Gold.

This parody of This American Life of “The Ira Glass Sex Tape” is one of the best and thorough parodies I have ever heard — from the introduction of the Acts, all the way to the quote of Mr. Torey Malatia. Genius. Plus, a secret sex tape of Ira Glass and Terry Gross (who is anything but, by the way) is just pure comedy gold to any NPR listener.


There has got to be a better way!

In honor of my wife who loves this genre of commercial:
