I’m a huge fan of viral marketing, and I recently stumbled upon this gem of a marketing campaign for Coma Conspiracy. Needless to say, I’m hooked.
I think the best part is that this seems to have been from a woman to a man. So cute!

Ever since I went to VidCon and vlogged throughout the convention, my YouTube channel has been getting a good amount of attention. If you haven’t been watching my vlogs, then you probably don’t know that it’s now a dream of mine to go to next year’s VidCon and be approached by people who watch my videos. So, when I checked my channel a few minutes ago and saw the numbers below, I was quite pleased!
It’s mainly cool because of the video views, but I remember having less than 10 subscribers before VidCon, so to see it at 150 is awesome!
If you’d like to check out my channel (or even better, subscribe *wink*) check it out by heading to www.youtube.com/thealdywaldy.
And much thanks to those who have checked my channel already. You’re amazing!
I’ve done this. You’ve done this. We’ve all done this.
Nobody knows a restaurant better than the employees, and it seems some of them are speaking out about their workplaces. The Huffington Post highlighted some posts found on Reddit, and some of them might make you think twice about what you’re eating.
Chicken Nuggets: Some of the grossest stories on this thread talked about the dubious material nuggets are generally made of. As noted by 4ScienceandReason,pictures and videos like these have already scared a lot of us off of chicken nuggets forever. Just in case that wasn’t enough, this comment by Dfunkatron might seal the deal for you, “When I worked at McDonald’s, I accidentally left a whole bag of about 100 chicken nuggets out on a counter for way too long. They melted. Into a pool of liquid. I never understood why. But they were completely indiscernible as being the nuggets i once knew.”
Wendy’s Chili: While not as traditionally disgusting as some other fast food traditions, we found Cozmo23′s description of the chili recipe at Wendy’s to be pretty stomach-churning — “The meat comes from hamburger patties that sat on the grill too long to serve to customers. They take them and put them in a bin and then throw them in the fridge. When the chili is made they take it out, boil it, chop it up and dump them in the chili.”
Vegetarians Beware: While a lot of comments admitted to using the same grill/spatula/knife on vegetarian and meat items alike, this comment from user attack_goblin made us gasp a little extra: “I used to work at a restaurant where we deep-fried the Gardenburger patties in the same oil we deep-fried the bacon.”

As someone who has been getting into video blogging (a.k.a. vlogging), I love finding out about people through video. The documentary gives great insight into other people’s lives, and an upcoming documentary looks to be very interesting. With executive producer Zach Galifianakis, the film takes a look at Joseph Garner’s challenge in living off of Craigslist for a full month.
Read the synopsis below:
In a time when America’s economy and sense of community were crumbling, one guy left everything behind–to see if he could survive solely on the support of the 21st century’s new town square: Craigslist. It was in this climate that 29-year-old Joseph Garner cut himself off from everyone he knew and everything he owned, to embark on a bold adventure. Armed with only a laptop, cell phone, toothbrush, and the clothes on his back–alongside the hope that community was not gone but just had shifted–Joseph began his journey. For 31 December days and nights, everything in his life would come from the Craigslist website. From transportation to food, from shelter to companionship, Joe would depend on the generosity of people who had never seen him and whose sole connection to him was a giant virtual swap meet. Would America help Joe? Could he survive with nothing, apart from the goodwill of others?

In one of my newest videos, I take about something most of us dread: taking a s*%t at a friend’s house.
