I heard the song “Never Gonna Give You Up” the other day and the memories just flooded in…

The biggest wave came in 2008 on April Fools’ Day where thousands of YouTube’s front page videos had the clasic bait and switch to the legendary Rick Astley that will make this writer smile forever. This is the kind of SPAM that is awesome and the reason for viral content and good meme’s online. From Scientology protest to sporting events all the way to the White House Twitter feed Rick Rolling is probably that most popular prank on the internet… or at least the most beloved.

The cool thing about the Rick Roll SPAM is that it made it off the web and into real life, that, and no one can really ever be too mad about a good ole Rick Roll, in fact I find it a delight.

Whoever thought of this idea is amazing and I salute you. Sha-wing. 

App Spam – No Such Thing as a Free App

Apple’s App store was one of the first places Apple opened the doors for outside developers to create software for Mac products. Before everything bought for a Mac had to be purchased from Apple directly. It makes sense to try and keep all the money in house but the move to outside development has seemed to pay off for Apple as they compete with the Android market.

I’ve now experienced both sides, Mac and Android, of the mobile battle and to be honest I think both App Markets seem to do their job very well. In fact you’d be hard pressed to find a popular app available for only one of the platforms. With both markets allowing outside software or app development theres is now a great wealth of free apps. Most of the really popular pay for apps out there have a free or lite version that are much more appealing than paying for everything you download.

Only problem is most of these free apps are free because of advertisements which come in all the old SPAM versions now availble of the mobile platform. Take Pandora for example, free app but is becoming progressively more SPAMy with adds between songs or my flashlight app that wont let me illuminate without x’ing out of an ad first.

This is the price I pay for a free app, but is it worth it?

4/20 – Weekend Movies!

I had to put 4/20 in my blog title, it only makes sense on a day like this. Did you know that in Austin, Texas today at 4:20pm they are going to unveil a statue dedicated to Willie Nelson! Here, I just found that “The statue stands along Willie Nelson Boulevard at Lavaca Street, near the ACL Live at the Moody Theater studios. The 8-foot-tall, 1-ton bronze cast was created by sculptor Clete Shields of Philadelphia and is a gift to the city from Capital Area Statues Inc.” How cool is that? I’ve never smoked the stuff, but I can appreciate the humor in a statue for Willie on April 20!

So, now on to movies! I cheat, I had to look up what is being released in theaters this weekend. Thanks to Nicholas Sparks, looks like another heart throb crazy movie for the teen girls, “The Lucky One” opens in theaters starring Zac Efron. I still have no idea who that kid is. The other movie this weekend is “Think Like A Man”, starring Gabrielle Union and Chris Brown. The rapper? … Sure enough, how does he keep getting work?

Well there you go either way, if you are looking for new movies this weekend, that’s it! And if you get the munchies at the theater, go with my favorite, Buncha Crunch. Love those things! I’m going to go find some Willie Nelson music. Later.
