Oddly enough it took this topic to break my blog silence, haven’t had the time to post and frankly wanted to write about more than Boxxy… To my fans that come here for that, I’m sorry I haven’t written about her Return, I just feel it’s a done topic, she’s apparently started making video’s again for those that wanna know, YouTube is your Friend.. Thank you to all my visitors for their nice comments and support, I apologize for the lack of updating.
Now onto bigger and more important things…
It more than appalls me that some people legitimately believe that the earthquake and Tsunami in Japan are Karma for Pearl Harbor, that it is god’s way of getting justice for America. How much of an inflated Ego do you need to believe such rubbish.
If you honestly think Japan deserves this because of something that happened over 60 years ago, then take everything in your house that was made in Japan, and get rid of it, Because you Sir, are a hypocrite. This includes your iPhone and most household items by the way..
I know I am not alone on this opinion as I spotted this website today: http://karmajapan.tumblr.com I applaud the maker of this blog, it is wrong that so many people feel this way… if something that devastating had happened in America the nation would be heartbroken. Saying thing’s like “Oh they are over-populated, they’ll replace them in a week” is completely racist. It’s 2011 People, time to catch up. What if it was your loved one being swept away without control only to die after fighting for their life?
If the disaster in Japan should teach us anything, it’s that we should be appreciating what we have, while we have it.. Life may not be perfect, but it is the only life we have. Enjoy it, Embrace it, Live it.. Not everyone has that luxury.
FYI: http://ignorantandonline.tumblr.com/ is also of interest as it showcases examples of people stating their opinions, ignorantly. Starting with the Japan issue.

Hi, Jen. Facebook is hiring.
We’re a cutting-edge technology company, constantly taking on new challenges in the worlds of milliseconds and terabytes. We need help from people who like to move fast, tackle the big stuff, and have an immediate impact. Sound like you?
(Doesn’t that message just make you think Facebook is really cool? Even just a little? )
I was wandering about the Facebook Careers page today after looking for their suggestion box, I had come up with this brilliant idea and I wanted them to know about it! (I was reading my feed and saw that a friend of mine had joined a group called “Facebook needs a dislike button” and then thought to myself that the dislike button should really be a Fail Button, cause its just cooler lingo )
I got excited as I looked around cause not only was I greeted with the “cutting-edge technology company” ‘s amusing message, but to my delight there was alot of department job openings and bits everywhere about how great working for Facebook really is. Their perks and benefits page is incredible, everything from 100% coverage of employee benefit premiums (50% for dependents) which includes medical, dental, vision, life insurance and disability coverage btw. Free Meals from a full Menu Daily, a full Laundry Service that drops your stuff back to you at your desk at the end of the day! 21 Paid Vacation Days, unlimited Sick Days, and even a decent sounding 401(k) Plan.
So not only does working for Facebook mean that you are part of something huge, innovative and cutting edge, your also really well taken care of while you do it! It really sounds like getting a job at Facebook would be fantastic! I know I’d love it, but Sadly for me, they require degrees (as they should) and all I have is Life, Job and Internet Geek Experience.
Psst Facebook, On the random, never-gonna-happen chance that someone from your company will ever read this blog post, I’m a quick learner and I have a lot of idea’s! (For an Example, See Above ) And I’ve been an Avid Facebook User for over 2 years )
Basically my point here is, Good on you Facebook, Hopefully one day in the Future (When the Economy Magically gets better) more companies (more everyday companies that is) will be able to provide their employee’s with the positive, striving, and comfortable atmosphere that you provide. Til then, the rest of us can dream right?
Here’s a video that gives you a really great idea about what its like to work at Facebook

Filed under: Random, Youtube-ness | Tags: Adsense, Google, Olgakay, shaycarl, Shaytards, The Station, Youtube, youtube celebrities
It’s been awhile since my last post so I figured I had to make this a good one
Warning: l understand this Post might be a bit odd if you aren’t a Youtube watcher, But even so, I hope you enjoy it and maybe give it a chance and check out Shaycarl
For the past year and a bit I have been a fan of ShayCarl, first noticing him in Olgakay’s (Who I happen to know and adore) “Not everyone get’s Naked the same way” Video which was made during the Toronto Canada Youtube gathering in August 2008…. Check it out Below
Shay is a very unique Youtuber (Regular Youtube Poster) He’s random, outspoken and funny and has an adorable family of three kids with his wife Kaitilette. Most commendable is that he isn’t afraid to be on camera despite his weight, he does mention it here and there but generally you can see that he is very comfortable in his skin. He has dedicated his time (and his family’s) to the daily Vlogs (Video Logs) hes been doing since his Birthday this year. For 213 days (as of this post, he plans to go for a whole year) the Internet has seen Shay live his life with his family, Moving from their home in Idaho to Venice Beach, Los Angeles to be closer to Shay’s new job/project The Station. Which in itself is a phenomenon as it is the first collaborative comedy sketch channel to come up on YouTube containing some of its most famous celebrities like LisaNova, DaveDays, Shaycarl, Philip Defranco, KassemG, Shane Dawson, and more. This post is about Shay tho so I’ll move on. If you like random silly sometimes crude comedy tho you should go check out The Station (There’s also one of their Video’s Below)
Shay, Katielette and their kids, whose names we barely hear for their privacy (they go by BabyTard, their youngest daughter who turned 2 this year, PrincessTard, their middle child, and SonTard, who is the oldest at I think 7-9 years old) are probably the sweetest family I’ve ever seen. If you wondering about the Tard part of things it comes from Shaytard, because Shay once wore a red Unitard for a Superbowl Sketch for his Main channel, After that the name just stuck.
I feel its been a privilege to be able to have a peek at someone’s life the way Shay share’s his with his audience. We’ve seen Days at the Beach, Birthday’s and Surprise parties, Behind the scene’s of The Station, Bbq’s with friends, Tire swing hunting, Baby tickling and loads more random family moments that I know personally most families don’t get to enjoy. So many homes are different or broken these days and its really great to see a family, happy and loving and real.
Their efforts don’t go unrewarded either as Shay has for a long while now been a YouTube Partner, earning money through Google adsense for his video views. I say this proudly not disparagingly because only handfuls of people are able to actually make a supportable living off of YouTube and I feel that they greatly deserve it. Since I first started watching Shay his daily veiws have more then tripled, obviously the Internet Loves Shay, and he loves them back. It takes alot of energy and dedication to wake up everyday, film your life, edit/render/upload it for a 3-5 hours (if your lucky) and do all the work that follows. I just hope that Shay knows his efforts aren’t unappreciated. While I haven’t been able to watch every day I have seen at least 80% and have shared quite a few of the video’s with friends who enjoyed them as well.
For me, It’s been something random for me to watch and enjoy. (Afterall, my Blog is called Pursuing Randomness) Not every video is fantastic, or long (except he once made a video 23 minutes long just to make a point ) but for the most part, its all been brilliant and worth my time and I really hope to see Shay go places with his career.
If you feel at all intrigued by any of this, please go check out Shay’s channels (Links Below) and show him some love.
Disclamer: I don’t know Shay personally aside from watching his video’s and some random chatting on blogtv/twitter. I’m supporting him as a fan in this post and nothing more. I Link the following video’s with Love, no infringement intended.
Now for the fun part, Some Video’s
OlgaKay’s ~ Not Everyone gets naked the same Way: (First Video I saw Shay in)
The Station ~ Spider Problem (Shay and his Wife are both in this one) :
Hope You guys enjoyed some of that at least Comments below are appreciated, you even get a free cookie

In a recent conversation I was reminded of the stigma that Facebook games get. I understand this perspective because I once felt the same way.
They look like fluffy lame little games that only children play. Games like Pet Society where you take care of your little pet and visit it’s little friends. Or Farmville where you plant crops, decorate your little plot of land and harvest it for Mula.
A few of my closer friends got me into these games and its opened my eyes, because the thing about Facebook games is…
A) It’s accessible from anywhere, at anytime, as long as your on a computer.
B) It’s Socialable. When you have friends that play these games it becomes something you do with them, something to enjoy together that isn’t complicated or requires loads of cash.
C) It can be causual, or a competition. These games can be quite detailed and competitive, if you get into it. It takes a load of effort to get any game on Facebook anywhere close to high ranked etc. Whether its a Playfish game or the version of Bejeweled. But, if you just want something random to do, thats what it can be. My friends daughter plays Pet Society and so does she. It can be fun for everyone…
There are plenty of people that feel the same way about Pokemon, Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon, which basically provide the same flavour of gaming. And yet, I know plenty of experienced talented gamers that enjoy one or all of those. Hell, I’m one of them.
So before you go sluffing off something you’ve never played, remember, appearances can be decieving, and while its not on the “elite” or “hardcore” side of gaming. It can be enjoyable if you let it
Happy Gaming, Whether its on Facebook, Wii or Beyond

It’s been awhile, anyone miss me? I know I have a couple hundred emails awaiting me today (haven’t checked the blogmail in a few weeks lol) mostly queries and comments, but a few people were wondering what happened to me, and I’ll put it all into one word for ya: Job, lol.
On that note…I suppose this is due….
That’s right folks…..
A Boxxy Update:
There are alot of you STILL asking about Boxxy, and I don’t blame you, she’s like a drug, and as of this moment over 1200 people on her twitter are using her She’s been updating alot lately, pondering whether it was safe to come out yet lol, even begging for followers by saying ’920, no one loves me’ and that was 2 days ago…I hope she doesn’t, and yet strangely…I do! You guys like reading about her and I like posting about her, its a Win Win What do you guys think? Comments Below please..
For those that don’t know who Boxxy is, here’s one of her video’s (the one that made her the most famous, 1 million hits in 2 days on youtube) She is what is called a Internet Meme, which is basically just a random video or picture (Like rickrolling if you know what that is ) that for some reason everyone catches on to and shares with everyone else, usually because its strange or incredible, in this case…well its self explanitory, for More Info click the Boxxy link in my Cloud to the left (its kinda compelling stuff, she was getting stalked! lol) :
And for those you of you that have better things to do than watch a video about a Hyper 16 year old youtube sensation….I have 2 video’s for you
A teaser trailer of the upcoming Cleavland Show (Which I happily rambled about way back in October!)
It premiers September 27th on Fox ofcourse, Don’t miss it! (Seth McFarlane Ftw)
And…It might seem to soon but here’s a Hilarious Clip from the Brilliant guys @ Mediocre Films (Check em out!)…Micheal Jackson Sock Puppet Theatre:
As a courtesy to those who might be offended, here is the Sidebar from Mediocre Films:
READ ME: Yes, I know it’s “too soon” for jokes about MJ. I was a big MJ fan (especially the Jackson 5), and the media made fun of Michael for years while he was alive, so frankly I’d find it hypocritical to stop spoofing (and therefore celebrating) his truly odd lifestyle now. Besides, we all agree there was no other man in pop music as talented as he was — no one disputes his accomplishments! So sit back and enjoy the oddities that made up his life. And don’t EVER abuse your children. Cuz look what happens when you do.
My favorite comment was from Westerngun: “if you cant make fun of everything, don’t make fun of anything.”
If you’re a subscriber to my channel, I’m glad to have you here. I’m going to keep doing what I think is funny. If you’re leaving, that’s okay too, we just don’t have the same sense of humor. One thing is for sure: There will be more episodes of Celebrity Sock Puppet Theatre, whenever there are interesting tabloid stories about stars.
That’s all for today! Comments Below pretty please
