God.. ordering pizza (or any food) over the phone is one of the few things that stress me out. Like I forget where I live it's that bad. U-dog's on this.
Nah, it's still the pure frustration of ordering Chinese on the phone. The only takeout where there's a fight over not having to be the person who makes the call.
Yeah the worst was ordering Chinese.. In college I lived on Jefferson St.. not really that complicated, but we were really high. I kept spelling it out and she kept saying "J-e-f-f-f-e-r-s-o-n." And I was like yes.. "Jefferson. Like Thomas Jefferson." "Thomas Street?" It went on like this for a while. I would've just biked but there was a blizzard.. anyway the guy was looking for a "Jeffferson" the whole time and on the other side of town. The food was cold an hour and a half later but poor guy was on a moped so I tipped normally. I think that was actually the last time I ordered food.
You can just order online with Seamless or whatever other services are out there.
Yeah.. this was back in like 2001 though.. I didn't even have a cell phone

Its the feelgood story/cliffhanger of the year!

Huh~Ulillillia isn't a ino? This is CGI? I'm so confused.

That's great, he's a friendly looking pooch, I hadn't realized when he was called U-Dog it might have some basis in truth.
My friend Hobnose used talking Dog technology like this, there was a whole website for it with lots of different faces, it was called Gizmoz.
Here's Hob's channel with nothing but talking Border Collie faces, well almost.
How is Hobnose doing? Is he back online? I haven't seen him in years!
Or, shit, her? I can't remember, was Hobnose a female or a male bordercollie?
Anyway, it's neat seeing those bordercollie videos. If Hobnose is still around, you should tell him to submit some stuff here!

Hobnose as a Border Collie Dog is female. I haven't barked with Hobnose for a few years now, my last visits were when I paid a surprise visit in Indiana while out there seeing an EIT Doggiewoggiez! show, then Hob came to my place for a return visit. After that she dropped out and I haven't heard anything, and I'm wondering what happened. Then again, Hob's kind of a shadowy character..
When I saw Udoge's video, it reminded my of those Gizmoz videos, some were done here, and Hob was really into it, every day for a week she was doing them. When Hob would activate the Collie character on the site, there was a voice that said, 'Ooh la la, we have visitors', I sure heard that a lot.
I was going to participate, they had a scruffy faced brown Dog on the site too, but I didn't know how to activate it to use it.
I went to this video's page on YT, and he seems to be going with the Doge persona, he said he asked for thin crust so they could slide it under the door, and I'm assuming that's so they don't see he's a Doge, pretty clever.
Yeah, I asked you about Hob awhile back, and you mentioned that you hadn't barked with her in some time. I was hoping that maybe you two had got back in touch, you know, what with you digging up Hob's YT channel and all, but I guess all of those videos were uploaded the better part of a decade ago. You and Hob were co-exhibits on PoE-Red, and I remember that the first pictures and videos I ever saw of you, were of you and Hobnose having fun, woofing and doing dog stuff in public. Hope she's doing OK.

The last visit we had was in the summer of 2012 after Doggiewoggiez!, and we'd re-established our friendship again. Through the summer we were barking, then I heard she moved and we lost contact, many letters to Hob have gone unanswered.
The on and off has been happening since the beginning when Hob wrote to my site of Dog photomorphs, remember Skippy? That was early 2002 and we wrote a few one paragraph letters back and forth, then I didn't hear from Hob again, and I thought 'just some kid' and forgot about Hob. Hob writes like an 8 year old, which is part of the charm, like a bouncy Dog writing.
It was 6-7 months later and I wasn't doing anything, and somehow that little Border Collie from Texas came to mind, and something gave me the idea to just pop off a letter to Hob again, and I did, not expecting anything. I got back a very excited, tailwagging response! We thought we lost you forever!, they said.
Saintly Bernard's computer had totally crashed after we started writing, so they'd lost all of their e-mails and addresses, and didn't know how to get back to my homepage.
Normally I wouldn't have written back when someone dropped the conversation, especially after so long, but something told me to do it, I guess there was enough of a spark there to make me curious. I think it was Hob's directness about what she was, I'm a Border Collie Dog, and I'm black and white, those were the first lines Hob wrote.
We made fast friends then and there, chatting all night on Yahoo Messenger and sending pictures, since Saintly had a camera. He sent a couple of pictures of Hobnose in the yard, with Hob's costume Collie head on, and long tail hanging down, and it looked almost like art to me, unreal that someone else was living like a Dog for years, and hadn't even met Furries or anything, and was thinking anthro thoughts.
There were a few times after that when we weren't barking, and some of it's the nature of the friendship too, we burn fast when we're together, it's a big release of Doggishness continuously on a visit for a week or two, then Hob will have to go home for obligations, a big up and then down for Hob. That's why you have 75 talking Collie videos on her YT, and they were done in a very short time over a few days.
It's the same with the videos of us that you mentioned, I got a Pure Digital flippy camera, and we made tons of short video clips like that, of everything we were doing.
I guess that all suits the high energy level that most Border Collies have.
What about Saintly? Do you keep in touch with him? I remember his website from PoE-Red, too; I was actually looking for that old site last week, but couldn't find it.
Also, those Hobnose videos... do you think it would be appropriate to submit some here? They're definitely weird, and I think they would be of interest to the average poe-viewer, but on the other hand I don't know Hob too well, and wouldn't want Hob to think we were making fun of her.
Boomer The Dog
Actually Saintly is gone, to the great gig in the sky, cancer, 2007. He had two sites, one at Geocities and another at Furtopia, and both of those are long gone. You might be able to find the Geocities one on a Geocities replayer site, but it's also on Wayback Machine,
I remember Saintly's site being on the Red side, it was on sometime after mine, I think it was his Furtopia one that had the more intimate pages about Tyler on it, which hadn't been archived.
I don't think that Hob would mind posting some of the videos, she's not sensitive about it and likes being out there with weird stuff that entertains people. Really that's Hobnose all the time, just doing it for the camera. The talking Collies are cool, and some later videos we did are here,
I hope we get together for another whole week visit sometime so we can have that fun again, it would be great!
Oooh! Poor Saintly. Shit, now I'm sad. I'll have to pour a forty-ounce dog bowl for him or something. :(

I agree, and it could be addictive seeing someone like that, to where I'd be let down if I met them in real life, because I'd still be thinking of that talking Doge.
I have a similar feeling with Norm McDonald, who plays the voice of Lucky in the newest series of Dr. Dolittle movies. When the first few movies came out, I'd never seen Norm, so he was Lucky to me. When his car commercials came on, and seeing him in other movies now, I tend to look away and imagine it's Lucky talking.
A little off-topic (actually way off topic for the video), but I've kinda been getting into The Mike Tyson Mysteries, mostly because of Norm as the talking alcoholic carrier pigeon. And a little bit more on-topic, holy shit U-Dog sounds a lot like Norm, or is it the other way around!!?!?! My mind's been all sorts of blown today.
Boomer The Dog
He might be able to do Norm, you have to kind of have a 'defeated' voice I guess, not perky, but kind of tuned down. Maybe Tom Bodett with a little more defeat maybe? I'll have to listen to Lucky's cadence again.
I'm trying to think of the first movie I saw Norm in live. A scene near the end had townspeople organizing in the woods over something, and some had guns, it was a comedy as I remember. I was that into Lucky's character I was totally seeing him all the time when Norm would talk. The good place to hear him is on Howard Stern, with no video.
I saved this video from YT, it's that good, and those glasses are so digital looking, it's great!
It was probably Screwed or Dirty Work, both of which could've been really good (c'mon, Norm, Dave Chappelle and Danny DeVito)? but Hollywood was really milking the PG13 thing back then, which might have meshed well with Adam Sandler's comedy, but not the daker stuff that was written for Norm. I think after those two he kind of gave up on becoming a leading man, and mostly does voice work, which is probably 100X more lucrative anyway. I saw Dr. Doolittle because I like guinea pigs. It's also why I saw G-Force. Chances are I would've liked G-force if they used real guinea pigs like Dr. Doolittle did. I'm waiting for the first movie where it's all real animals and CGI humans :)
Boomer The Dog
I can't think of what Norm's movie was right now, but I like that he has a distinct enough voice that he doesn't have to change it for different roles.
Cool about guinea pigs, I've never seen G-Force. My pet rodent as a younger pup was a gerbil.
It would be cool to see a movie with real animals and CGI Humans, and it might happen since CGI saves money over live actors. It's supposed to be that it's cheaper to make talking animal movies for that reason.
for a pizza? What organic artisan shit is that? I know it's 30 inches but goddamn.
off topic, but what ever happened to that pizza review kid?
He still does food reviews. It's slightly less interesting now that he's figured out how to inject a little inflection into his videos.
Seems about right. Luckily they all sell pizza by the slice, but the places I like are usually about for a 17 inch cheese pizza. It's not necessarily "artisan" but definitely a step or two up from the usual chains in terms of quality ingredients.
Pizza-related question, even though I don't really eat it because I don't eat cheese, but I remember all those "HEY WE'RE DOMINOES! WE CHANGED EVERYTHING AND DON'T SUCK ANYMORE" ads and tried going to "artisan" thing themselves. Was the pizza actually an improvement over what I remember when avoiding the Noid and such?

Am I the only one who was reminded of William S. Burroughs?
Ul+ dogs = apppearance from boomer. Sometimes just dogs alone can do it but the combination is pretty much surefire.
Dog videos emit a high-pitched whistle that only he can hear.
Boomer The Dog
I sense a fellow eccentric in Udoge, he's kind of playful, and especially being an animated Dog in this video. Other than this, de-greasing his pizzas, and making video games, oh also vacuuming his house out, I don't know anything more about him.
He seems to be someone who likes to film certain things that are happening in his everyday life, and it's kind of interesting, especially with Dogs added, that makes for easy commentary from me.
