Hulu Moves to Loop in More Live Programming

May 21, 2009

-By Mike Shields

Hulu—the home of a growing library of on-demand TV programming-- is expanding into more live content.

The site, a joint venture between News Corp, NBC Universal and most recently Disney, will on June 1 stream a live Dave Matthews Band concert from the Beacon Theatre in New York from 9:00 p.m. To 11:30 p.m. EST. The live-on-the-Web concert is being timed to promote the band’s upcoming new album Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King, which is scheduled to be released June 2.

The live event represents something of a departure for Hulu, which primarily offers full episodes of current and classic network TV shows, along with full -length movies. The site did stream President Barack Obama’s inauguration live last January.

Besides the concert, Hulu will begin offering various Dave Matthews Band videos on May 28, as well as the documentary Scenes from Big Whiskey which chronicles the making of the band’s new album, as well as clips from the band’s upcoming appearances on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and the Today Show. 

The June 1 concert will also be available to viewers on demand following the live show. 
(Thanks to Dixie VonWidget for the lead on this one!)

Life Imitates Advertising! Mini Cows!

OK, this morning the lines between advertising and reality were blurred for me.
Not being one to plug Jack In The Box, first, there was this commercial:
The spot started airing about a month or two ago. 
Granted, it is one of their better adverts.

This morning, I log on to, and see this:
Farms downsize with miniature cows

With feed prices up, ranchers see the advantages of smaller breeds of bovines.
By P.J. Huffstutter 
9:59 PM PDT, May 22, 2009
Reporting from Tekamah, Neb. -- Walking through their lowing herd of several hundred cattle, Ali and Kenny Petersen were like two Gullivers on a Lilliputian roundup.

The half-sized cows barely reached Kenny's waist. The ranch's border collie stared eye-to-eye with wandering calves.

"Aren't they sweet?" asked Ali Petersen, 52, shooing Half-Pint, Buttercup and a dozen other cattle across a holding pen. "They're my babies, every little one of them."

The Petersens once raised normal-sized bovines on this stretch of Nebraska's rolling eastern grasslands, but with skyrocketing feed costs, the couple decided to downsize.

They bought minicows -- compact cattle with stocky bodies, smaller frames and relatively tiny appetites.

Their miniature Herefords consume about half that of a full-sized cow yet produce 50% to 75% of the rib-eyes and fillets, according to researchers and budget-conscious farmers.

"We get more sirloin and less soup bone," Ali said. "People used to look at them and laugh. Now, they want to own them."

In the last few years, ranchers across the country have been snapping up mini Hereford and Angus calves that fit in a person's lap. Farmers who raise mini-Jerseys brag how each animal provides 2 to 3 gallons of milk a day, though they complain about having to crouch down on their knees to reach the udders.MORE

I need more coffee.

What If The DHARMA Initiative Was Real? And They Had To Advertise?

Now that Season 5 of LOST is over, and we have to wait until God knows when for Season 6 and the answers to everything, I ask this, what if the DHARMA Initiative was real? And what if they had to advertise to get new recruits? I think Hot Meteor on flickr might have tapped into that concept quite well. Take a look at some of his work. Just click on the image to see it full size.

Buy Robocop's Armor, And Go Kick Some Shiny Metal Ass

Are you worried that killer robots will destroy us all and take over the world? Would they kill or enslave what appeared to be one of their own? If these thoughts are keeping you awake at night, maybe it’s time to invest your own Anti-Killer-Robot Insurance Plan.

An eBay seller claims to have an actual Robocop prop/wardrobe suit, that may or may not have been used in Robocop 2 and 3 for “stunt/distant shots”. Allegedly, it’s one of five suits ever produced.

If you’re not worried about killer robots, hey, Halloween will be here before you know it.

Pick up your own, possibly authentic, Robocop suit for a Buy It Now price of $2,250.  ebay

Cheesus Found. No, I didn't sneeze.

DALLAS - Call it "Cheesus," part deux.

A Texas couple has found the likeness of Jesus Christ in the form of a Cheetos.

Sara Bell was snacking on Cheetos, purchased at a store near Houston, when she stumbled upon what appeared to be someone in a robe, praying.

Her husband Dan saw the snack and said that it resembled Jesus.

The couple has named it "Cheesus."

They've apparently wrapped the orange snack inside a tissue for safe keeping.

There's no word on whether they'll try to sell it on E-bay.

Last year, a Missouri woman made a similar discovery in a bag of Cheetos. She named her finding "Cheesus" because it looked similar to Jesus Christ on the cross.

Bus Meets Guard Rail Test Doesn't Go As Planned
