Into heavy pipetting?

7.22.2008

Then you'll enjoy this quality Eppendorf automated prep handler thingy.

Pipetting all those well-plates, baby, sends your thumbs into overdrive
And spending long nights in the lab makes it hard for your love to thrive

What you need is automation, girl, something easy as 1 2 3
So put down that pipette, honey, I got something that will set you free

And it’s called epMotion (whisper: ‘cause you deserve something really great)
Girl you need epMotion (whisper: yeah girl it’s time to automate)
It’s got to be epMotion (whisper: no more pipetting late at night)
Only for you epMotion (whisper: girl this time we got it right)

DNA
RNA
Proteins
Cell Cultures
Less reagents
Faster workflow
Saves you money
Well, well, well

And it’s called epMotion (whisper: ‘cause you deserve something really great)
Girl you need epMotion (whisper: yeah girl it’s time to automate)
It’s got to be epMotion (whisper: no more pipetting late at night)
Only for you epMotion (whisper: girl this time we got it right)

Chris Tux Redux

4.29.2008

category: internet sensation

Our resident Chris Tucker impressionist, drinkspiller, employs his vocal mimicry in an attempt to get Jackie Chan to commit to Rush Hour 4.
  • Chris calls Jackie's agent, demanding to speak with Jackie.
  • Chris explains that he lost his phone in some ridiculous manner and didn't write down Jackie's number.
  • Chris again demands to speak with Jackie, reminding his agent that he's the black Owen Wilson. No, that Owen Wilson is the white Chris Tucker.
  • Chris starts to pitch Rush Hour 4 to the reluctant agent.
  • Chris is clearly writing the script as he goes along.
  • Chris pleads to speak to Jackie, telling his agent how he needs this movie, and describing a ridiculous series of events that now result in his desperation.
  • The conversation is documented and published on YouTube.
  • Fanboys start a petition to film and release Rush Hour 4 per Chris's rambling creative direction.

four hour flim festival

2.18.2008

Bizzleburp proposes the following, and I'm apt to agree with him:

"Capture 30 seconds (after editing) of usable footage every week; assemble the lot into a sketch comedy trailer / promo and distribute online."

Hell, we've got hundreds of greatest hits gags just waiting to be recorded. I propose Monday evenings, starting 02/25 at 630ish. Who's in? Which human-Robot Chicken cluckings do we record first?
