Good times and noodle salad.

Last night's 404 meet up to see the Dark Knight was a resounding success! Our buddies showed up well before the movie and we chewed the fat for awhile. Big thanks and much appreciation goes out to Issac and Matt (the Intern) for dropping by to say hi. We missed you in the theater dudes! No surprise or complaint here, but it was a huge brofest. It's a good thing Stacie and A-Rod showed up to add a feminine perspective to the conversation. Again, thanks to Dan, Frank, James, Scott, Nelson, and Rick for making it out. We'll do one again soon, and remember: what happens at 404 meet ups stays in 404 meetups!

Today we welcome Wilson's old college buddy Alexander Green to the studio. He's made this awesome Web site GET OVER IT where you can submit your deepest, darkest regrets to be public advertised on the Net! We each submit our own secrets, but I'll give mine out here: I regret not applying to CNET earlier; maybe I could have been here for the inception of The 404!

Big, big news here at The 404! Our superfriend Mr. Funk made some kick-arse shirts for us! Check them out HERE! Well, I know what I'm getting for my family this year, and all proceeds go to the Funk design fund, or the Get Justin Cable Television Project (right now it's pretty much a non-profit). Beer steins and more designs to come. Thanks funky!


So, remember yesterday's story about Drank? Well, thanks to our pal RickFu, we've discovered a more natural way to quench our thirst...Pussy. No seriously, that's what it's called! Pussy natural Energy Drink. It's made with grape juice, limes, lychee, six botanical herbs, and a few more "mystery" ingredients that I won't get into right now. I'd really like to try this thing; I'm sure it'll have a very familiar taste...I love lychee!


Finally, did you hear about this insanity!? Apparently a MONSTER washed up on the shore of Montauk! This is nuts and awesome at the same time; I mean LOOK at this guy--he's HUGE! It looks like a dog/griffin/Jeff Bakalar hybrid! But you know what? As much as I'd like to believe that this thing is real, my inner skeptic just can't believe that the government would allow a random alien dog-child to wash up onto the shores of bumbletown, New York. Where were the Men in Black? They would've neuralized everyone in a second, no problem. Which brings up another point: Gawker reported several people in close vicinity to the "monster," and yet no other pictures have been published on the Web. Whaaaattt? Everyone has a camera on their phone now, so why didn't anyone bust those things out and take mad snapshots of this warped little manatee? I smell bull. My theory? It's the infamous sex pig, come to dig us an early grave. Don't say I never warned you!
