Erin Atherton's Bud Light Commercials — Jackie Moon better be worried

Real worried.


'Cause Ms. Atherton (above), whose day job is being grand panjandrum of durtbagz.com, apparently has plenty of time on her hands.

She's recently become obsessed with Jackie Moon's Bud Light commercials, to the point where she couldn't sleep at night until she'd created her own.

Watch them (they appear in the final 2/3 of the video up top) and then tell me they're not as good as anything you'll find on TV.

All I know is, she better get an agent 'cause she's gonna be in demand real soon now out in Hollywoodland.

Trust me....

Innovative liquid measurer


From the website:

Graduated Measurer

This is an easy way to measure 1 to 6 ounces of liquid.


Liquid can be transferred back and forth between the main compartment and the small compartment by tilting the container.


Graduations molded into the wall of the small compartment make it easy to transfer the exact amount you want.

The measured amount alone can then be poured out by tilting the bottle differently.


No spoons or cups are necessary.

Perfect for measuring and storing most substances, including oil and garden chemicals.

Marvin Gaye's 'A Funky Space Reincarnation' — in Washington, D.C.

joehead Nikolas Schiller just sent me the following email along with a link to the video above, posted yesterday on YouTube.

Wonderful music.

    From: Brian Liu of ToolboxDC

    You may have already been to or heard of Eric Hilton of Thievery Corporation’s amazing new Washington, D.C. restaurant/lounge dedicated to Marvin Gaye at 14th/U Street NW, called Marvin.

    Eric commissioned ToolboxDC to design and build an installation piece in the form of a large mixed media mural of Marvin Gaye, now prominently displayed as the restaurant's centerpiece.

    The piece measures 6 ft by 10 ft — and it's for sale (please contact us directly: brian@toolboxdc.com).

    In any case, we shot a T i me l a p s e film [top] documenting our lengthy installation process.

    Check it out along with our new blog: toolboxdc.blogspot.com/


In case you want to do some some karaoke, here are the lyrics for "A Funky Space Reincarnation," Marvin Gaye's 1978/9 song featured above.

Thanks, Nikolas.
