Thanks to my dad for this youtube. Anthony Bourdain in Taiwan. I miss you apple milk and delicious fried snacks!!

Another reason why the internet is a universe all of it's own. A note left on a receipt goes viral. Next thing you know someone loses their job, an obscure female minister is on tv, and Applebee's is in a PR firestorm. There's no question what was written is completely fucked and if the woman had in fact not tipped, of course she deserves to be accountable for something she wrote for other human eyes to see. In this day in age if you stiff a server and leave a shitty, snarky comment, it is very possible it will go viral on the web. But what was the waitress thinking to put the woman's entire signature on the original photo? It's like people don't realize the will power of bored internet sleuths. You can't put shit on the internet, to clearly expose an individual's questionable behavior signed off with their legal name, and not expect to get reprimanded by APPLEBEE'S. Did the waitress deserve to get fired? Probably not. But she was an idiot to not think APPLEBEE'S was gonna keep her liability of an ass around their sizzling entrees.

Yup.

Sometimes I want to talk about a million things at once, while other times I just want to drown myself in music. I'm not sure where that really leaves me. I guess it leaves me at 1:29 AM.. I don't like the show "Girls" because I hated the first episode and refused to watch it there after. Why? ( Incase you like it ) Because, based on the first show, I don't care to follow up on people I would never be friends with in real life. Straight-the-fuck-up! Go 49-ERS!!!! I know two things: My ex boyfriend reads this blog as well as my dad. Again- why do I care ( AKA WHY AM I SO FUCKED ) ? I guess life only affects you as much as you want it to. Even at work ( which I almost never mention ) my EX boss ( male ) accuses my ex boyfriend for being the "culprit" or "source" of my shitty female weaknesses. If that were true, my problems would be easy to solve. I feel like I should write more .. Not just because I'm listening to Stevie Wonder, drunk, and amped as fuck!!! My name is Jilleen Liao and I live in New york and eating pizza is fucking delicious.

This video is amazing.. what goes into making an artificial eye.

Thanks to Karl for sending me this link! One of my favorite moments- the woman with 3d glasses on in a theatre getting punched in the face

SMASH TV presents MEMOREX STARRING RONALD McDONALD Memorex is the advertising industry's collective wet dream. The sequel to Smash TV's critically acclaimed "Skinemax", Memorex is a 50 minute VJ odyssey, a tribute to an entire generation who grew up with only a TV and a VCR for a babysitter. Sourced from over forty hours of 80s commercials pulled from warped VHS tapes, Memorex is a deep exploration of nostalgia and the fading cultural values of an era of excess. It's a re-contextualization of ads - cultural detritus, the lowest of the low - into something altogether more profound, humorous, and at times, even beautiful. Digging up long forgotten memories for a generation who spent their formative years glued to the boob tube, Memorex is a veritable nostalgia nuke for children of the 80s. Endless beach parties, Saturday morning cartoons, claymation everything, sleek cars, sexy babes, toys you forgot existed, station idents, primitive computer animation, all your favorite sugary cereal mascots, and so much more. An ode to the hyper consumerism and sleek veneer of a simpler time. The audio provides a perfect accompaniment to the warped and weirdly nostalgic footage, like finding your favorite cassette from childhood after it’s been baking in the sun for 25 years. An authentic audio/visual package, Memorex was designed to look and feel like the real deal. The ultimate VHS tape. Is it a lost cultural relic, melted to the dash of an '83 Nissan Sentra? Is it a sinister government experiment, designed to brainwash children into becoming consumer slaves? Is it the pinnacle of blipverts, sent back in time from 20 minutes into the future? Is it the holy grail of unlabeled VHS tapes, tucked away in the back room of an abandoned Blockbuster? Is it live, or is it Memorex? We didn't create your childhood, we just organized it for you. How to brainwash an entire generation. OBEY. CONSUME. THIS IS YOUR GOD. This video is protected under fair use copyright law.
