John Hodgman [chat]

John Hodgman at Radio & TV Correspondents' Dinner

Friday, June 26, 2009


So.. I've been musing an idea which might make a decent post.

But it also might be hella insular and uninteresting to anyone else..

Is there any interest in seeing me type up a huge sprawling in depth character study of an obscure Marvel character?

Farrah Fawcett: Dead, Doable

Farrah Fawcett died.

I'd still hit it.

Michael Jackson Dies: Zombie Michael Jackson Lives

Michael Jackson died today. This, of course, means that Zombie Michael Jackson will soon rise and produce a Thriller Re-Release in an attempt to claim the title "Zombie King of Zombie Pop".

Of course it is also possible that the Michael Jackson with whom we have been familiar for these past few years was, in fact, a zombie all along.

Think about it.

Exchange 2007 Automatic Forwarding

Incase anyone might want to know. If you're using OWA trying to setup a rule so that when a new email arrives it is forwarded to another email address, but the rule never seems to work, seems to not work ever, or seems to never work at all. It might be the case that Exchange 2007 is not configured to allow automatic forwarding.

Now, I'll not complain about the difficulty I had finding the option to allow user configured forwarding. I'll simply say that it seemed, to me, to be buried. Here is where to dig:

Exchange Management Console > Organization Configuration > Hub Transport > Remote Domains > Default-Properties > Format of original message sent as attachment to journal report: > Allow automatic forward

Go team!

Roger Ebert is a hypocritcal idiot.

Recently read a Roger Ebert review of Transformers 2.

After reading through it, I felt like, ignoring minor plot specific gripes, one could level all of those same criticisms towards the first movie. I felt somewhat vindicated at that point. Then I did something stupid. I decided I would take a look at how he felt about the first movie. I thought perhaps he hated it also, and I just never noticed because I don't track with critical reviews of films.

This is what I found:
It's goofy fun with a lot of stuff that blows up real good, and it has the grace not only to realize how preposterous it is, but to make that into an asset.

Dear Roger Ebert,

Where the fuck were these legitimate gripes two years ago when Michael Bay applied his bullshit formula towards my beloved childhood? You, along with every other worthless fucking critic, and the teeming masses that wouldn't know good from a Manute Bol film are to blame for this atrocity about to be unleashed on the American public. You are the ones who gave Bay the positive reinforcement he needed to produce a steaming pile of incomprehensible shit. Worse than that, you are the ones that gave him the confidence to do it again.


Glenn Beck: Iran's Power Structure

"This is what the people are arguing about. This choice between this guy and this guy that this guy has already pre-selected."

Well, since that is what these protests are all about I hardly think them sensible. Silly brown people; democracy is for caucasians!
