A new opera, called ‘u’ premiered in Holland a couple of nights ago and I was unable to attend. If anyone managed to see it I would be interested in a review. I missed the invitation to the event since it was sent to Klingons on Qo’noS, an M-class planet orbiting the star Arcturus and I [...]
One of my regular blog reads (I can’t remember which one) just posted a clip from the (almost) straight-to-DVD movie Idiocracy. It’s a comedy about the potential long-term effects of living in our modern civilization, in which our technology protects us from the consequences of our acts, drastically altering the evolutionary pressures that made us [...]
Someone posted this at Hit & Run a few days ago, and despite all the weirdness, it’s kind of cool in some way I can’t explain. This is complicated, so here are a few things you need to know: The original 1960′s science fiction series Star Trek starred William Shatner as Captain James Kirk and Leonard [...]
I would normally save a video like this until Friday, but I have a feeling we’re just counting the minutes until the DMCA take-down notice. I don’t want to spoil it too much, but it’s Kermit the Frog following in Mr Johnny Cash’s footsteps with his own very special cover of Trent Reznor’s “Hurt.” To [...]
Torture by CSI: Miami. I could only take 4.5 minutes. How much can you stand? Watch the video. (How many times does he put on those glasses.)(Hat tip: Franklin Harris) This clip from Idiocracy shows what the news will be like in the future if we keep dumbing things down.(Hat tip: VM at Hit & [...]
I love these movie trailer remixes. Check out Scary Mary. What if Lord of the Rings had been written by someone else? Say, Ian Fleming, Raymond Chandler, or Gene Roddenbury? (“The Halflings, cap’n, they will na take the strain!”) If you ever have a need for a dominant, a disc jocky, and a meeting facilitator, [...]
The folks at JibJab present the year in review. My friends Bill and Susan recommend this video on bathroom etiquette (probably not safe for work). Numa-numa this ain’t, but everybody agrees, wait for the hat. The hat somehow makes it.
This is about what I was expecting: What American accent do you have? Your Result: The Inland North You may think you speak “Standard English straight out of the dictionary” but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like “Are you from Wisconsin?” or “Are you from Chicago?” Chances [...]
Here’s some weird bit of pop culture that I just don’t get. It’s stupid, it’s poorly drawn, and it makes no sense. Video: George Washington (Probably not safe for work) Can’t. Get. It. Out. Of. My. Head.
I took the What Famous Leader Are You test. I don’t like the result. What Famous Leader Are You?personality tests by similarminds.com Crap! You know, I’m pretty sure I’ve never built death camps or invaded France. I’d remember something like that. Sure I’d like to crush my enemies. Who wouldn’t? But really, when it comes [...]
You’re Fiji! As calm, relaxed, and removed from life as they come, you’re just so chilled out, it hurts people to see you. Everyone aspires to be where you are, but most of them just can’t put their stress away. Little do they know that even you sometimes have inner turmoil and struggles! For the [...]
Chuck Norris does not sleep. He waits. Chuck Norris frequently donates blood to the Red Cross. Just not his own. I first saw Chuck Norris in 1978′s Good Guys Wear Black (directed by Ted Post, who may not be famous, but sure has been busy). I can’t really remember much of the story, but Norris [...]
