4/21/2006 – Countykid IMed me yesterday asking if I would screw with some Berkeley Quiznos employees while he was in there ordering food and eating. And of course I obliged. For most of Countykid’s visit, he was entertained by Mike the Employee throwing up his arms in exasperation each time the phone rang and all the other employees eagerly crowding around him to try and listen to the bizarre phone calls.
Keep in mind, I edited out the parts where the phone rang for several minutes at a time with nobody picking up because they were sick of the calls. I finally got him to answer again by unblocking my Caller ID. This is in the call where he tries to scare me by saying he’s got my cell phone number. Countykid was nice enough to snap a few pictures for me while I made the phone calls. Click here for the pictures.
The elusive Jolly Spamhead was located today when he slipped up by signing RBCP’s guestbook with a friendly message. Mr. Spamhead is alive and well and maintains a Myspace page. You can go there to read an entry about him being found. Or him finding us, or whatever. Anyway, welcome back, JS!
I set up a new feed specifically for the PLA TV episodes. So if you’ve got a video ipod and you want to listen to old shitty PLA TV videos, now you can! For now, I’ve just thrown the old Switch ads on the feed, but I’ll put some more stuff in there soon. I’ve got many gigs of video stuff that I don’t really consider good enough to make a full PLA TV episode out of, but it’s amusing enough to stick on an Ipod feed. So subscribe and you’ll eventually start seeing some new stuff that you can’t find anywhere else.
Once there was a conversation on Cal’s forum about unsecured cameras on the internet. The opentopia.com site was mentioned and we used it to find this live webcam at a bar in North Carolina called Jackalope Jacks. It showed this picture:
This seemed like the perfect opportunity for some live interactive prank calling. So I called up the bar, talked to the bartender and asked him to go get the guy that was sitting at the bar and put him on the phone. A few seconds later I got to witness the bartender walk up to this guy and tell him he’s got a phone call…
We have declared a fatwa on Calimar and his new site Cal’s Content Kingdom! Our content is better than his content. Cal thinks that people want to watch user submitted videos, play old-school video games against other users, read artiCals and talk in his forums.
Our April Fool’s joke on the world was so stealthy and so obscure and so brilliant that hardly anybody even noticed they were being fooled! But the joke is on all of you. You see, all that maroon color on this page uses the hex color code of #8C0000. And I changed the code to #8C0010 which is a slightly different shade of the same maroon! And none of you had a fucking clue either! HAH! The best part is that some of the pages on phonelosers.org remained at #8C0000 and others were #8C0010 all day. So half the time you were seeing maroon and the other half you were seeing maroon. Watch out next April 1st, suckers!
