On December 7th, 2009 at 1:30pm GMT Starbucks invited musicians from all over the world to sing together at the same time to raise awareness for AIDS in Africa. In that one breathtaking moment, musicians from 156 countries played “All You Need is Love” together. Watch now, as musicians from all around the world come together and share a song.
The global sing-along is part of their continuing efforts to help fight AIDS in Africa. In just one year in partnership with (RED)™, Starbucks has generated money equivalent to more than 7 million days of medicine to help those living with HIV in Africa.

As you can tell from above we are starting to revamp the site a little bit. One of my co-workers, Katherine, really helped us out and put together an awesome ZootPatrol design, which we will be adding to our previous logo. From all of Zoot we thank you again Katherine. We will soon be revamping the entire site, which for one, will be making the banner up top a lot more visible. If you have any suggestions just leave us a comment or shoot us an email, even if it is things you don’t want us to change. Hope you all like the design and we look forward to unveiling some new stuff, while keeping the awesome posts coming.
How many times have we seen around the internet the news of some awesome concept car that may or may not be hitting the streets sometime around 2090. It all seems like a fantasy, and most of the time it is, basically because these concept cars are not practical. 600K for a concept Audi? A million for the new Lambo? Who can really afford these things? Well not to be outdone, the Motorcycle manufacturers decided to cook up a little day dream of their own. Below are some of the newest and most unique concept cycles that we have ever seen. A Mad Max bike? A bike by Jaguar that looks like a Jaguar? These bikes are enough to be considered auto porn, and we condone that. Just the looking part. You can check out this link for all the descriptions.
Thankfully, I have some friends in this world who like to slack just as much as I do. So instead of doing work, a good friend of mine decided to cruise Craigslist, and what she found was pure gold. Ill just copy and paste it below, but this is a classic example of why weed cookies are awesome.
So, after consuming pot brownies and getting a little too drunk on thanksgiving a friend and i decided to buy 1500 live ladybugs from amazon, which was a great idea until they came in the mail. Now they’re sitting on my windowsill and I have nothing to really do with them. If i set them free they’ll die in this weather, if I leave them on my windowsill they’ll die.
So, if you have a greenhouse or some kind of animals to feed them to it’d be awesome. I don’t want to ruin 1500 lives.
Email me and tell me what your’e gonna do with them, and if you can come pick them up. And they’re yours.

This is one of those movies you say, “Finally someone did this”. A bunch of kids going out in the woods and thinking anything and everyone are creepy killers. Coming out, Memorial Day 2010 – Tucker and Dale, two hillbillies heading to their fixer-upper cabin for some relaxing, discover they aint alone in them woods. They encounter an SUV full of vacationing college kids, and Dale unintentionally creeps them out. But later, as he and Tucker are fishing, Dale rescues one of them—the pretty blond Alison—after she falls into the lake. Assuming shes been captured, the indomitably preppy college kids rally to find her. A comically macabre battle between Izods and overalls, Eli Craigs ingenious send-up of the horror genre recounts a simple misunderstanding gone grotesquely wrong. Our hillbilly psycho killers are actually sweet as pie; its the judgmental college kids who have issues.
It’s 2010. You know — the future. The first entertainment advancement of this strange new decade comes to us from the leader in TV sports and Dad-like catchphrases. ESPN 3D is a newly announced channel that will show around 85 live sporting events in 3D during its first year, launching on June 11 with the first 2010 FIFA World Cup match. Other events will include the 2011 BCS National Championship Game, various college basketball and football games, and the Summer X Games. You’ll need a new 3D-capable HDTV and those dorky 3D glasses.
A French artist that calls himself MTO has done graffiti portraits across the city of Berlin in Germany. Like most graffiti artists there is not much information about MTO. What we do know is his style is awesome as he spray paints realistic portraits of movie characters, musicians, and historical legends. In the first part to the MTO series we bring you musicians, enjoy.
Illustrated with technical pen,frame by frame done by a graphic design degree student living in Singapore. She only posted her username on Vimeo which is “saggyarmpit”, classy and elegant, I like her. She is due to graduate in 2010 and is in the process of putting more of her work on a website coming soon. The audio she used was called Dr. Dre rap beat, but she is unsure if it is an actual Dr. Dre beat, which is doesn’t sound like it is at all. Regardless, the video is amazing and she puts together a very intricate “flip book” if you will, of parkour in the streets.
For every big role in Hollywood there is also a critically acclaimed performance that was slated to go to another actor or actress. While we’re sure they had good reasons for their decisions, we’re also wondering how hard they kick themselves after realizing they passed up “The Big One.” We have put together the top 7 iconic roles that were given to someone else first, but those people thought the movie was going to be a big waste of time, ensuring that they made one of the biggest mistakes in their careers.
7. Dirty Harry: Frank Sinatra as Harry Callahan
Frank Sinatra passed on Dirty Harry as he had the flu and couldn’t be bothered finishing the script. And by flu I’m sure he was just so drunk that he thought it would get in the way of his drinking. You’ve gotta ask yourself a question: “Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?” Well yes I’m sure you do Frank because your shit faced and that is a toy gun.
6. Gladiator: Mel Gibson as Maximus
Gibson turned down the lead role in Gladiator. A role which landed Russell Crowe the Academy Award. Mel also turned down the part of Robin Hood in “Robin Hood Prince of Thieves.” Instead, that part went to a not very believable Kevin Costner.
You were probably thinking Mario weren’t you? Well you would be wrong my friend. Guinness has put out it’s 2010 “Book of World Records Gamers Edition” and surprisely Mario is not the most well known video game character in America. Only the man who eats ghosts and chases babes with pink bows could take that title. Good old PAC-MAN took the title for the Most Recognizable Video Game Character. The book drops today. I am really happy to see NBA JAM has a spot in this book, “IS IT THE SHOES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Here’s some of the other highlights noted by gameinformer.com

Longest Time Spent Playing an MMORPG: Sara Lhadi logged 16,799 hours grinding away in Runescape (Runescape!?) between November 2004 and October 2009 (I guess she hasn’t stopped).

Largest Collection of Pokemon Memorabilia: 12,113 unique Poke-things make up UK-resident, Lisa Courtney’s real life Pokedex.
Most Popular Puzzle Game of the Century: This one goes to Bejeweled, which is likely sitting in your pocket as we speak. The game accounts for about one-third of PopCap’s 1 billion game downloads. Puzzle game of the Century, eh? I though that the Rubik’s Cube or jigsaw puzzle might have put up a better fight.
Most Recognizable Video Game Character: Mario? Sonic? Mega Man? Nope, it’s Namco’s very own Pac-Man. 94 percent of American consumers recognize the pellet-gobbler, edging out Nintendo’s plumber by just one percent.
