Voting Machines That Don't Record Your Vote
Not that I'm that worried we're going to have problems next week, but:
An apparently easy problem to fix when it occurs -- but now aggregate that across thousands, millions of voters, all on one day, all rushing to get their vote in, all freaking out when something goes awry because it couldn't possibly just be an error, it has to be deliberate, you're suppressing my right to vote, you're trying to rig the election, foul foul FOUL --
-- well, yeah. That ain't good.
How'd That Happen?
Back momentarily to bring you this moment of joy from New York City television news:
GLORIOUS. (via TNR)
See also: my dad's favorite newscaster/interviewer bring the pain to FOX & FRIENDS. Those are some seriously uncomfortable looks on the left side of the screen, but Wallace DOESN'T EVEN BLINK. That guy's awesome sometimes.
If Adventure Has a Name
As penance for you not being able to see the last video, here's the first trailer for INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL, due May 22:
SOTD - If You're Happy and You Know It
Carl's back with another Song of the Day.
There might be a little political bias in our household.
Howzcum I have to find out about Sesame Street Videos from Andrew Sullivan's blog, of all places?
And also, howzcum SSV doesn't allow for embedded videos? Seriously! Even hulu lets you put clips online, and I'm guessing that they're a bit more concerned with prevention of wholesale IP theft than Sesame Workshop is...
Huh. Anyway -- awesome.
Hey, A Movie!
A first for the dahlbergcentral staff: we made a movie. Sort of.
This will require a lengthier explanation than we have time for. Suffice it to say that the very, very extended Dahlberg family has an almost sixty-year tradition of celebrating Labor Day by dressing up and acting out crazy, barely-hilarious-to-anyone-but-us skits, generally aided and abetted by the consumption of frosty adult beverages. Over the last say ten to twelve years, we've gotten away from the actual annual celebration, and only meet up now every couple of years -- but every year, regardless of whether there's a reunion or not, there's a Program, a compliation of pictures and jokes and family updates put together by our faithful Editors in Oregon.
And this year, they went digital. So this is what we gave them. The very first (but probably not the last) C&S Films production, shot on location in Dallas, Wellston and Columbus, and starring our adorable family.
Get This Boy A Scholarship
Take top poster and pass to the left.
Following those instructions, hundreds of Hilliard Darby High School football fans fell into an elaborate prank on Friday night.
When they stood up during a football game against cross-town rival Hilliard Davidson High School and held up squares of construction paper, they thought they were spelling out: "Go Darby."
But from across the field, Davidson fans read the actual message:
... and here's the proof:
BEST. I am in awe.
EDIT 8/31: DUDE!! According to Blogger, this is dc's 1000th post! Go team!
No, Please Stop
(Context for those who haven't seen the last episode of THE SOPRANOS.)
So, no. Seriously. What?
This is pretty neat, for those of you who have fond memories of CALVIN & HOBBES like me: a very short animated C&H film done, presumably 100% without authorization, in Bill Watterson's style by an Italian animation student. As a final project.
I would sooooooo watch about a hundred hours of an animated C&H series that looked like this.
Forwarded to me by pal Wiswell: a trailer for the STAR WARS: ROBOT CHICKEN special airing in June on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim block.
Continuing in this month's theme of GREATEST MUSIC VIDEOS FOUND ON YOUTUBE THIS WEEK, I present to you: Guyz Nite and "Die Hard".
(before you click, it's DIE HARD, so, y'know, R-rated language and violence.)

We should do a big-time TV post soon, but for right now:
If you're not watching 30 ROCK, start.
Pity the Fool
Apologies for the string of videos and the distinct lack of "real" "content" (our seven regular readers will know that there is no such thing here at dc, but shhh! keep it under your hat!) -- but, heh, how could I NOT share this one?
(that's ROCKY III, in case you hadn't guessed)
All Songs By
Ganked from donewaiting -- definitive proof that Bob Dylan wrote every song. Ever.
Superdeluxe - No Direction, Period.
(some objectionable language, if that kind of thing bothers you, but this is VERY funny.)
If You Have It, You Don't Need It
Steven Colbert versus the Decemberists in a Guitarmageddon Shred-down.
