A Day at the LOLzoo

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the October 13th, 2008

If you’re watching this episode and don’t know what a LOLcat is, that’s like going to France and not knowing what’s inside an escargot shell. But never fear, we try to ‘splain it to you in the first few moments so that everyone, n00bs and all, can have fun at the LOLzoo! Creators of the wonderfully funny icanhascheezburger site met up in San Francisco’s animal habitat to celebrate the publication of their book, for which they had to cull through millions of images of LOLcats so you can enjoy them in the comfort of your own home. GETV was on hand to interview hoomans and animals to get their thoughts on all kinds of issues — language, domiciles, noms and LOLs!

Don’t Hassel the Hoff, David Hasselhoff

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the August 11th, 2008

One man can make a difference! That tag line rang through every episode of the hit 80s tv show Knight Rider every Friday night as Michael aka David Hasselhoff raced his faithful K.I.T.T. into the hearts of millions of women — and men, really — in the world! In this episode, GETV catches up with the super star in San Francisco where the Hoff joined millionaires in the Gumball 300 rally. After Irina beat up the 500 other reporters trying to creep up on the Hoff, David tells Irina how he’s driving that same sleek black horsepower into the future, this time on the internets — the power of THE HOFF is so strong, he’s got his own social network where he makes dreams come true. Yes, you too can join HOFF SPACE and get your own HOFF BAG for those times when HOFF WIG is exactly what you need for the occasion.

Anonymous vs Scientology

Posted in GETV Episode by ekai on the February 11th, 2008

Anonymous is a nebulous and faceless group that normally lives comfortably on the Internet but has chosen to step into meatspace on this particular day to face off with the Church of Scientology, an organization which it considers to be illegal and immorally coercive. Scientology labels Anonymous a ‘cyber terrorist’ group. Protests against Scientology were organized simultaneously in cities all around the world. Irina pays a visit to the Church’s San Francisco headquarters to get a sense of what all the fuss is about.
