Justin Timberlake accepted Corporal Kelsey DeSantis’ youtube invitation to the USMC 236th birthday ball and had a blast.

I’ve always been very vocal about my support of our Armed Forces. I’ve always felt like they offered us the opportunity to live our lives freely without the fear that so many other nations have to endure still to this day. And, they do it without asking for anything in return. I had this very feeling walking into this dinner. So, to say I was stoked to be there would be more than accurate.

The more I read, watch, and hear about Justin Timberlake, the more awesome I think he is.  I wouldn’t crank his music to 11 because that’s not my style, but I can appreciate the incredible talent.   Also, I think it goes without saying, but every one of his appearances on SNL (skits, performances, lonely island songs etc..) were mind blowing.

So much about this isn’t right:

My favorite parts:

  • His “Glock” looks more like a 1911
  • Throughout the video How he keeps saying “it’s a real gun”
  • Make sure the safety is on (00:35) while pointing gun at his own face
  • “This is for my forehead in case it ricochets and hits me” (2:35)
  • Gets startled and drops gun: “you have to understand that the first shot is always really powerful”  (3:15)
  • The gun is so powerful, but i’m going to wave it at the camera man anyway (4:25)
  • This kid is a stone cold killer (4:55)

Note: I need to remember that forehead safety googles technique when I’m at the range next time.

School must be rough for this kid.  Why bother bringing more ridicule by posting vids of yourself on the internet?

At 15 seconds he does sound somewhat normal… master troll perhaps?

Thoughts?

A new one from Corridor Digital:

My Unarmed In Downtown L.A. Rant:

The start of the video might be (probably is) filmed in and around Santee Alley in L.A..  When I was there a few years ago we heard it was neat so we went and checked it out.  I HATE places like that… knockoffs, cheap garbage, bartering, wall to wall people… my worst nightmare.  Not to mention the fact I went into Starbucks to get an iced coffee with plans to use the bathroom, and the lineup was too big so I decided to forgo the iced coffee and just use the bathroom and bounce.  Unsurprisingly (because were’re talking downtown L.A.) the bathroom was locked up like Fort Knox and when I asked for the key they told me I had to buy something.  The barista told me there was a free bathroom across the street inside a building, down a hall etc.. so I went on a mission to find it.  My mission takes me inside this building with more Santee Alley style crap, but mostly fabrics in this case… I take a left down the one hall she talked about.  My spidey sense is tingling because the hallway is very long poorly lit, has lots of little doors off of it… generally pretty shady looking.  One of the doors opens behind me as I walk past, I turn around and some late 20s looking gangbanger type steps out and starts eyeing me.  Instantly he’s on his blackberry typing something (texting I assume) while watching me.  I see a sign at the end of the hall that says “Bathroom –this way–> $1″.   I was incredibly uncomfortable at this point not only because I had to pee, but I also felt like I was walking into some sort of setup to get my ass kicked.  I aborted the mission, turned around walked right past gangbanger and maintained eye contact while he grinned at me, a grin as If I was about to get jumped.  After what seems like an eternity I make it back out onto the street and get the hell out of there.  Was the Starbucks barista in on some sort of setup for tourists to get robbed?  I’ll never know.

I know what your thinking; “cool story bro” haha

Anyone else ever been in a potential “situation” like that? Ever experienced Santee Alley?  Points if you’ve been to NYC Canal St., basically similar crap on a larger scale.

Shattering its own day-one sales records, Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard (Nasdaq: ATVI), announced that its highly-anticipated Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 3 has become the biggest entertainment launch ever with an estimated sell-through of more than $400 million and more than 6.5 million units in North America and the United Kingdom alone in the first 24 hours of its release, according to Charttrack and retail customer sell-through information.

Full press release – HERE

Wow… that’s a lot of money.  I wonder how much development cost them?  Something tells me it was probably all paid for that day.

If pwning n00bs online is what’s lacking in your life, you can pick of a copy of MW3 at Amazon – HERE

The custom round beside a revolver to show the scale:

The rifle made to shoot it, along with some ammo:

I posted a pic of the round in chat and the first response was “WTF” so it stuck. the case is made but fire forming 50 bmg brass to the chamber and then trimming to 3″ long. then press it into a neck sizer and seat a .700 cal 1132gr cast paper patch boolit.  According to my numbers this gun with its 16.25″ barrel will push that 1132gr boolit to over 2000fps and up to around 2300fps. The gun is made by me from scratch and weighs in at 15lbs. its a single shot with a shell holder bolt. the optic is an Aimpoint comp M4 and handles the recoil like a champ. the grip is a magpull grip made for an AR and the recoil pad is a limb saver.

See more pictures on the Cast Boolits website – HERE

I know the name of the site is “cast boolits” but I find that word (boolit) so obnoxious.

Make a Glock in .700 WTF, then we can talk.

I got a chuckle out of this:

Besides obvious parodies like this, it irritates me how everyone is trying to be clever by calling themselves the 1% for one reason or another lately.
