about out of sight

A site of original and unoriginal content meant to entertain and inform. Out of Sight is edited by JJ O'Donoghue and William Hilderbrandt.

more about out of sight

If this site had to be summed up in one word and a preceding parenthetical phrase, then it would be (hopefully) entertaining. Think of it as an archive of some of the most interesting articles, videos, photography, and miscellany that JJ and William find online.

Presently the two have hopes of expanding the site to include some of their own work, and when they do just watch the hilarity ensue.

In the meantime please leave comments on posts - whether you like or dislike - and make suggestions as to what you want to see more of. For some of you it's more tits and ass, for others you prefer men with beards, and for one of you (you know who I am talking about) it's all about jam.

one more thing on out of sight

Out of sight is Will and JJ's attempt to get noticed and invited on daytime TV or any Fox TV show. Before out of sight, there was rich and creamy, a hugely popular blog for spammers who wanted to sell us penis enhancing products. They were wasting their time.

But to stick to the augmentation analogy, out of sight at its best is a brain enhancing website. That's a radical statement guys.

What you'll find on the site is a ménage à trois of humour, skepticism, intelligence and titilation. We really enjoy comments and recommendations and we hope to build up a community of followers so that we then add a subscription wall and take on the Financial Times or Playboy. Or just get jobs with them.

who is this stud william?

William lives in Paris. At the start of 2009 he left London and all his friends and his bad job to come to France, where he hardly speaks the language, to be with his girlfriend. Officially he is very happy to finally be living with her but occasionally he does get nostalgic for London.

He grew up in the US - Oklahoma (please do not hum the musical!) - and studied philosophy before going to London for a Master's in journalism. His work has not been published by the best in the industry, such as The New York Times, The Atlantic Monthly, The Economist, Mother Jones, McSweeney's, and many, many more.

Currently he is freelancing at radio and TV gigs, slowly acquiring technical skills he hopes he can eventually use to make documentary and feature films that one day will not be produced by some of the world's best film studios.

who is this wise guy jj?

Quite early on in life JJ discovered that he was a fabricator. In 2006 his mum and dad invited him to leave their home in Cork, Ireland and head for London, where he now resides, to shake up the city. He cycles hard, drinks hard and blogs harder. You get the picture.

Currently he's alive, and, like most people his age he's 29. He longs for the day Japan get's moved right next to Ireland, and that Cork wins the world series in hurling. More than anything else he want's a book deal. Failing that a decent sandwich with French mustard, mayonnaise and Ballymaloe relish in it.

Funny ones

The BBC has published some of the best and worst jokes of the year as judged by a panel at the Edinburgh comedy festival. I like this one from comedian Dan Antopoloski: "I’ve been reading the news about there being a civil war in Madagascar. Well, I’ve seen it six times and there isn’t."

I have no idea what this video, suitably enough called “Winkers”, is about. However, it is the kind of thing that either Will or me would be hugely proud of if we had created it.

Okay, so this isn’t exactly new. Nevertheless let not the fact that it ain’t contemperaneous detract from the self evident truth that auto-tuning the news is funny.

My favourite line from this five-year-old boy’s (with perfect girl hair) renidtion of Folsom Blues is: “When I was just a baby.”

LPCoverLover has to be one of the best websites I never knew was in existence. Does that make sense? Besides having a kick-ass name, there’s a huge stew of brilliant record covers. The categories covered take in Asian Pop, Gay, Funeral, Fruit Cake and Guns. Who ever is responsble for LPCoverLover is possibly a genius.

Yeah, after I posted Natalie Portman yesterday I decided to do a bit more research on her. Here is a gem. She gives you a run through of her day - pardon all the swear words being bleeped out but Natalie is obviously hardcore and reps with major street cred. Just peep the lyrics:

Whatcha want, Natalie?
- To drink and fight!
Whatcha need, Natalie?
- To fuck all night!

Did you ever just have one of those days where you chopped your balls off? What about when you got a gun and stuck in your mouth? When you took a shit on Deborah’s desk? Perhaps, when you got some chicken strips and drank a fifth of vodka? Then you must be the boss.

A couple of world record attempts of late. I hadn’t heard of the above one before - an attempt to set a new record in the competitive world of mattress dominoes. Fun video and even more fun when you listen to their noises.

Second, is the one I’ve heard the most about, and perhaps you have, too. It is the longest successful whisper chain. More precisely it is a whisper-chain marriage-proposal that went around a bar and through 59-people. [Via Swiss Miss]

Uh. So, Natalie, I’m looking to find a place to store my weapon of mass destruction.

Really? At least it wouldn’t be my leg but I don’t think I want to watch my dog get off on a sex doll. And, how come this particular one doesn’t look the least bit feminine? In fact it looks rather butch and well built. Do you really want to send the message to your dog that it should out trying to fuck the toughest male dog in the neighbourhood?

Personal Urns combine art and technology to create a family heirloom that will be cherished for generations.
Isn’t this just a really tacky idea? It’s the type of thing that, despite being ugly and completely ridiculous, could still find footing to take off in the US. Doesn’t this one look like a very poor Hollywood designer’s pitch for the Red Dragon scene where Anthony Hopkins dines on a man’s brains?
