American Film Company

I wouldn’t consider myself a movie expert, but I’m excited about a new movie company – The American Film Company.  They have a really unique philosophy:  to create engaging, commercial, historically accurate feature films culled from America’s storied past. When I first heard the idea, I thought “neat” but can Hollywood make a movie that…

Funny or Die – Between Two Ferns

I don’t post a lot of “this is so funny you must see it” stuff, but this ranks right up there.  I was a huge fan of The Landlord, also from Funny or Die.  This is a satirical and hilarious adaptation of the star hocking movie interview show, hosted by Zach Galifianakis who recently killed…

Law Degree for Sale

Some enterprising lawyer in San Francisco has decided to sell his law degree on Craigslist.  Awesome stuff.  From the sale description: “After several years of practicing law I have come to the conclusion that my law degree is useless and I don’t want to be a lawyer anymore. Though I spent over $100,000 on it…

How Does One Get a Bathroom Break During Avatar?

I mentioned to some friends today that I’m going to see Avatar this weekend, but was worried if I could make it through the show without taking a bathroom break. No worry, they said, just get the iPhone app RunPee.  Here’s how it works: you’re watching a movie and need to take a break, but…

Shareholder Representative Services Holiday Greeting

SRS released their annual video holiday greeting.  If you are trying to figure out what the Queen of England, George Washington and Kanye West all have in common, you have to check it out.  Nice job guys!

I Love My Lijit Search Capability

I am not sure if I have to issue a silly FTC disclaimer along with complimenting one of our portfolio companies, but I do have to say that I love Lijit.  This isn’t something new, mind you.  We made the investment quite some time ago, but today I was reminded of another reason why it’s…

Twitter: “We Own You Bitch”

Definitely one of the funniest things that I’ve seen in a long while – Twitter “responds” to criticisms about its service.

Whatever

I’m not sure how I missed this song when it came out, but I’m glad that I found it now.  Whatever.  Thanks to my friend Steve Tonsfeldt, one of my most trusted musical discovery folks as well as an incredible M&A lawyer for passing along.  See, I don’t hate all lawyers, despite rumors to the…

TechStars TV Bloopers

As with any good series, there are always good outtakes.  The TechStars Founders video series is no exception, either.  And yes, I do look like an idiot.  Check it out.  The Founders | Bloopers from Megan Leigh Sweeney on Vimeo.

I Like Offensive Puppets

I like offensive puppets.  I think Team America World Police is one of the funniest movies that I’ve ever seen.  As an aside, the fact that the original cut of the movie got a NC-17 rating is simply awesome.  Today, however, I ran across two more offensive puppets (but not anywhere nearly as offensive as…
