The 404 219: Where Wilson can't stop looking at himself

On today's show, we discuss the Halloween weekend, our escapades into Hasidism, and a few very poor costume choices. The whole time, Wilson just can't stop looking at his self-made portraits.


On today's show, we discuss the Halloween weekend, our escapades into Hasidism, and a few very poor costume choices. The whole time, Wilson just can't stop looking at his self-made portraits, so we concentrate our efforts in welcoming up-and-coming videographer Marvic Paulo to the show. He joins us in discussing our apathy toward Circuit City, defends the heavenly burritos from Chipotle, and we each reveal the shrouded secrets of our tragically bullied childhoods. TOO REAL!

Good friend and dedicated 404 listener Marvic Paulo helps us figure out a few stories on today's show, one of which involves a Web site that gives children the opportunity to report school bullies and other deviants in complete anonymity online. The site, School Tip Line, is designed to give young people a voice to report information about thefts, drugs, and harassment. Wait, what?! I think I've heard of this site, it's made by the founders of narc.com, jabroni.com, and howtogetyourbuttkicked.com, right? Don't get me wrong, I definitely got bullied in middle school, but I did what everyone else did: enrolled in a karate class, watched a bunch of Ninja Turtles episodes, and befriended the biggest kid I could find. What happened to good ol' American ingenuity? You wonder why our nation breeds socially inept hermits, it starts when they can weasel their way out of facing real life scenarios such as these!

Don't forget about this week's Video game contest! You have a week to send in your custom LittleBigPlanet or MotorStorm: Pacific Rift box art submissions; the covers must feature The 404 in some capacity and this time, try and keep them PG-13. Need pics of The 404? Try our Flickr or the Facebook Group!
