If you’re searching for that extra something to complete your new look for a new semester, why not try a merkin?
“What’s a merkin?”
Well, I’m glad you asked. According to Wikipedia, “A merkin (first use, according to the OED, 1617) is a pubic wig, originally worn by prostitutes after shaving their genitalia to eliminate lice or disguise the marks of syphilis. There are many different ways of wearing a merkin, although most involve placing the merkin on the vulva or the scrotum.”
I think it’s just a great idea for everyone.
Keeping with WUOG’s mission to be an alternative media outlet, I bring you President Ahmadinejad’s Christmas address. For those unaware, Ahmadinejad is the controversial leader of Iran’s secular government. Also, Muslims recognize Jesus as an important prophet.

But where did all the money in my bank account go? I figured by being home and all for two to three weeks I could relax, I’d get to stay home, wouldn’t have to worry about spending money. Now, its the day after Christmas and I still have Christmas presents to buy. I’ll probably have to use the gift cards I got and such to buy more presents. People also judge when somebody is selfish around Christmas, but come on, when you’re expected to get gifts for at least twenty people you’re allowed to be, you can be as selfish as you want.
Also, I wish I spoke German so I could sing 99 luft Balloons.
Cute animals think they’re so friggin’ cute. It gets on my nerves, and I’m sure you hate it too. Luckily, the author of the blog F*** You, Penguin has taken the liberty of setting these little punks straight. A new cute critter gets a good talkin’-to every day.
Yelling at innocent, adorable animals: just the thing to round out a great day of holiday cheer. Merry Christmas from the WUOG digital media staff!
The internet is sometimes filled with wonderful gems of humor and wonderment. One of these gems is You Look Nice Today: A Journal of Emotional Hygiene. Mostly, It’s just 3 guys talking about nothing on Skype. At the same time, it’s mostly hilarious and filled with very vague pop culture references from the 1920’s and/or 1930’s.
They’ve had a dozen or so episodes so far including a wonderful series with guest stars John Hodgman and Jonathan Coulton. Go give them a listen at YouLookNiceToday.com.
A video example of their humorous styling:
I do not own an iPhone, nor do i plan on it. Though if I did, I would certainly be testing out these apps. Free music + free software? What more could you want for Christmas? Enjoy.
The internet giveth generously during the holidays. Right now I’m enjoying two gifts:
First, a free stream of Andrew Bird’s yet-unreleased instrumental album Useless Creatures–well, instrumental if you don’t count the whistling. If you enjoy beautiful violin playing or the idea of instrumental indie appeals to you, catch this within the next three days, while it’s still free on the intertubes. The album will be released in a deluxe edition set alongside his much anticipated follow-up to Armchair Apocrypha, Noble Beast, on January 20th.
Second: Urban Outfitters is giving away free 10-issue subscriptions to Nylon Magazine. No strings attached, and according to some folks who did it last year, it’s totally legit. Nylon is one of my favorite magazines; it covers pop culture and fashion with a hipster-ish slant. (And we’re honest about our hipster-ish slant here; we are a college radio station after all!) It also offers some slick layout and design eye candy.
It was 40 years ago today that the famous Earthrise photo was taken aboard the Apollo 8 space shuttle. Apollo 8 was the first manned voyage to achieve a velocity sufficient to allow escape from the gravitational field of planet Earth.
1968 was a year of upheaval, riots, and assassinations, but the orbiting of the moon gave humanity hope for their planet; it was humanity at their best after a year of seeing us at our worst.
As the shuttle orbited the moon, the crew spoke to 2 billion people on Earth, describing the landscape then reciting the creation story from Genesis. Photo after the jump. . .
