Jetpacks haven’t been this funny since Arrested Development. “It starts right now!”
People screamed in terror, viral videos were analyzed, albums got the literary treatment, toddlers made bad movies and got drunk as did a Christmas storyteller… and how we laughed at it all!
It’s been a long time since I first recommended the Derek Waters’ Drunk History videos.
The series is getting lots of new attention with their latest entry, a laugh out loud, drunken telling of Twas The Night Before Christmas starring hunk of the moment, Ryan Gosling (who I might add, I crushed on way before it was cool when he starred in the High School on the seas show, Breaker High).
I’ve also been getting caught up with other videos in the series including the story of Tesla and Edison starring John C. Rielly and Crispin Glover.
My only issue with these awesome videos? Way too much vomit!! I have to cover my eyes. (The Christmas one, thankfully is puke free).
I’m not sure what it is about animals affecting human mannerisms that’s so hilarious, but friends and I just can’t get over this polite bear waving hello. You can almost hear him say “oh helloo there!”
An epic soundtrack to an awe inspiring film.
Listening to the 2001: A Space Odyssey Soundtrack will make your day seem significant and very weird.
And while we’re at it, how awesome is this monolith action figure?
Can’t claim to be the biggest Jimmy Fallon fan, but one of TV’s greatest theme songs plus The Doors? Pretty genius.
Plus, I pretty much live in a world of Very Hungry Caterpillars and Wockets in Pockets.
OK, so you’ve probably already seen this viral video of an awesome kid caught dancing to Michael Jackson’s Smooth Criminal while doing the dishes.
But that doesn’t make it any less lovable.
These photos of people getting scared in Nightmare’s Fear Factory are stupendous!
We won’t be making it to the old haunted house this year, but these photos are filling the void nicely.
I love Halloween time!
Thanks Steve for bringing these to my attention.
As a fellow Freddie Mercury fan, I was tickled with Jennifer Hom’s Google homage in honor of what would have been his 65th birthday.
I don’t usually notice the celebrated google doodles that often, but this one’s extra special, with rainbows and tigers and that signature mustache.
Happy Birthday Freddie.
I remember many years ago having a discussion about how unintentionally “bad” things (think Ed Wood) had gone the way of the dinosaur with media having become so overproduced by committee and only concerned with profits, with unusual voices being silenced by businesses that found no need for them…
and then the internet exploded with opportunity for amateur talents.
Anyone can have a dream and make it happen, so long as that dream is limited to becoming a viral video.
These clever, funny, and amazingly rendered albums reinterpreted as novels are fantastic! There are so many great ones, but of course a science fiction cover for Purple Rain ranks among my very favorites.
London designer Christophe Gowans has also done a bang up job reinterpreting classic art as classic album covers. Just check out that Black Sabbath/Nude Descending a Staircase mashup. Genius!
Thanks to Will from The Stencil for posting these on FB…
Which in turn posted a link to these Pelican Book versions of classic albums.
These pretty much made my day.
Man, I love the old Batman show. It’s probably one of the most entertaining comedies ever made.
Mike had it on the other evening and graced us with a showing of this gem.
Starring a slurry, gin soaked, and completely awesome Tallulah Bankhead as Black Widow, the episode features an ingenious plot.
In order to rob a bank, Black Widow has made a Batman robot and created an uncanny Robin disguise.
The result is… unbelievable.
The really good stuff starts at 3:01 in the clip (but it’s all good stuff).
I’ve just learned that the show is being made into a movie and am thrilled (though I’d still like to find a DVD of the original series).
