Conan on the Emmys

Just watched Conan's opening video sequence at the Emmys the other night. So funny.

Denis Leary: Where's Mel Gibson now?

Have a look at this footage of Denis Leary in the broadcast booth at a Red Sox game.

Leary asks the announcers if the first baseman, Kevin Youkilis, is Greek. The announcers tell him that he's Jewish, which sets Leary off on a Mel Gibson rant.

Very soon after, Youkilis makes a nice play at first and Leary shots: "Where's Mel Gibson now? Where's Mel Gibson now? He's in rehab and Youkilis is at first base."

Quebecor helps fight Seasonal Affective Disorder

I was reading page 2 of the Quebecor-owned 24 heures free daily newspaper to catch up on my celebrity gossip and birthdays.

I was reading the bottom story of the day (news that Michael Douglas and Catherine-Zeta Jones are not going to have another child) when I noticed a photo of a topless woman on the bottom left side of the page.

When combined with the installation of full-spectrum lighting on some metro cars, this can help curb depression. Way to go, Quebecor!

Phone to phone free calls

There are probably going to be a lot of companies doing what Jahjah is doing. But their website is pretty, so I like them.

>> www.jajah.com

What they do is let one make free calls in North America or to Europe and a few other places. Just visit the website, enter your telephone number, your friend's telephone number, and Jahjah calls each of you and then connects the calls. Sure, it's not as easy as pressing the keys on your phone's number pad, but (unlike Skype) you get to use your phone.

You don't have to sign up, but I think more calls are free if you and the person you are calling are registered. Also, there are some reasonable limits on how long you can talk per day/month. But this looks like a pretty good deal.

I wonder how long it will be before Google or Yahoo decides to buys them.
