Random Ish: Thanksgiving Hangover Edition
by Winston "Stone" Ford
Geez, Thanksgiving is over already? I didn’t even get my second plate of food? So sad. My Thanksgiving was good, but the food went quicker than a kilo of coke at the Winehouse residence (I kid!). Still, hope all y’all (in the US) had a wonderful Thanksgiving. And to our non-US readers…y’all need to get on this Thanksgiving thing. Free food!
Anyway, here is the Random Ish for this week. Also, all your Random Ish goodness can be found at our new Google Shared Blog.
Money, Cash, ‘Ros? The Financial World is goin’ crazy (seriously) over the 5 second of Jay-Z throwing Euros in his video for Blue Magic.

So the dollar is falling because of Jay-Z? I thought it was because countries are switching to the Euro as their preferred reserve currency, but to each their own.

Only 11% of HDTV owners actually watch HDTV. Okay, look. If you’re planning to spend $1,000 on an HDTV, please make sure that you’re able to view HD content.

Trust me.

Subways signs changed to forbid cast members of Full House – Damn, this type of stuff makes me really miss New York.
