Borat Contest + Updates Galore

Hey everyone. I know, it's been over a week since we made a post (with the exception of Adrian's Brand New post today). I'd like to blame it all on the fact that Ezarchive is fairly incompetent but I must shoulder most of the blame. Basically I've been unmotivated and exhausted this past week, and that, teamed with the fact that everything here has been crazy this weekend (see: beer pong with my dad at 10am before the football game) has led to the lack of posts. I promise a more motivated Zack in the coming weeks. We have to switch away from Ezarchive now since they have totally ruined everything for us. This means we have to re-host all of the files previously linked to on All Things Go, which is a long and tedious process, so bear with us. We have made the switch, temporarily, over to FileDen, though their 10GB bandwidth limit is incredibly small and probably will force us to move again, maybe to DreamHost or maybe to some real webhosting (www.AllThingsGo.com anyone?), but for now, its FileDen. If anyone has any suggestions or a super-server sitting around shout us a holler so we can get this thing going. Also, we've been working on some new webdesigns, but since our budget is small (we're broke college kids after all), we haven't been able to come up with anything exciting. Our most professional new look (with a test post) can be seen over here. If anyone thinks they can make an awesome design for our site, please please please contact me at allthingsgoblog@gmail.com or at SmootIsMyIdol on AIM and I can discuss with you what we're looking for. Who knows, maybe a big surprise prize will go to the best design, if we get enough submissions! Anyways, the real reason for this post is to introduce the first of many All Things Go contests! I went to see the Borat movie last night, and I must say, it's the single most offensive and racist movie I've ever seen (besides most all Spike Lee joints), which in no way means I did not enjoy it. In fact, I was worried the other people in the theater were getting annoyed at how often I burst into laughter. I, along with pretty much all of America, have been a huge fan of Sacha Baron Cohen for years, and was slightly skeptical of a full-length movie about a character in a skit (see: all SNL-themed movies), but I was very pleasantly surprised. Highlights of the movie include the "Running of the Jew", Linnel the prostitute, and Borat referring to presidential candidate Alan Keyes as a "real genuine chocolate face". Our awesome friend Rosemary over at Cornerstone Promotion has hooked us up with some free stuff, and it's contest time bitches! In honor of the fact that Borat was originally a skit in Da Ali G show, the contest is as follows: In 2-4 sentences (please no more than that), pick a character from any TV show or skit from a TV show and give me a plot summary of a movie based on that character. For example, I believe that Wilson from Home Improvement should have his own movie where he has his own talk show along the lines of Oprah, Dr. Phil, etc... and at the end of the movie you end up seeing his face. Ok, that wasn't funny, but you guys get the picture. The Grand Prize Winner (AKA the person who makes me laugh the most) will receive a copy of the Borat soundtrack, Borat: Stereophonic Musical Listenings That Have Been Origin In Moving Film, along with a promotional Borat poster. I have a copy of the soundtrack, and this prize is well worth it. Also, if we get enough submissions, two runner-ups will receive the poster and a Borat sticker (also super-cool!) Just leave your summary in the comments along with your email address. I'll announce the winners sometime this week, assuming you people actually leave submissions unlike every other time I ask you to comment and you don't (it kills me inside). This should a fun contest, be creative and please actually participate! For those of you unfamiliar with Borat's style, check out this clip of Sacha (aka Borat) on The Daily Show last week: By the way, I had my horns surgically removed too. I look forward to readng the submissions. Welcome back readers, All Things Go is active again. -Zack

I like the test layout, it's very refreshing. I need to talk to my friend at USC to see if he knows the three fratboys in Borat who cheer "Women are our slaves!". They're screwed for the rest of their college careers.

Thank you for reminding me about the Running Of The Jew.

I dealt with all the EZArchive shizz too, and another blogger recommended fileXoom to me - it's free, you get two gigs of space and unlimited bandwidth. I've been using it for about a week now and haven't had any problems, so I'd recommend it too.

I don't really like the test layout, looks so similar to some other blog I remember seeing. I'm having a friend redesign mine right now, I'll let you know how it goes, and see if he might want to help you out.

As for the contest, I don't much care to win, but I have always thought Niles from Frasier should have made a movie about how he was secretly a dance instructor at a gay club.

Zeon said...

I think Hurley from Lost should have his own movie, like 'Dude, Where's My Car'-type movie.

By the way, the test layout looks fine.

Danny Tanner (Full House) should have a movie where he is stuck in an all-glass box hanging over Times Sqaure and has to find his way out, and different celeberites keep showing up telling him how hes too tall. He ends up turning into Verne Troyer (Mini Me) due to lack of proper nutrition.

My favourite Redskin is obviously Clinton Portis.

What a super running back and, furthermore, he has quite a hilarious tradition of characters for press interviews.

A real hoot!

Being a die-hard Redskin fan on the West Coast, I'd have to say Todd Collins. With Brunell being a bitchy whiner on Madden '04 (yes I'm living in the past), I traded him and Collins stepped up led the 'Skins to 2 consecutive Super Bowls the last two years.

My favorite Redskins player is Santana Moss. I could tell he was big time when he played at the U, and he is definetly one of the most underrated wide receivers in the NFL. He also has a sick first name.

I think that Budnick from Salute Your Shorts should have had his own movie made. I'm not sure if you're familiar with the show, but if you watched enough Nickelodeon as a kid, you should know it. He is so badass in that show and has arguably one of the greatest haircuts of all time. A classic movie could have easily been made that centered around him bullying inferior campers and being the shit.

Lavar Arrington. Or maybe Antonio Pierce? Oh, they're both on the Giants now? Oh, and the Giants are in first place in the NFC East? I think i'll stick with Antonio

favourite Wiz player: Gilbert Arenas

why?!? Because any guy who gets a huge-ass tattoo of a tiger on his entire stomach is cool in my books.
