Well, Eminem, I bet Triumph the Insult Comic Dog is looking pretty good right about now.   I mean, the worst thing he ever put in your face at an MTV Awards show was a nasty old sock puppet.

Very Bad Things

May 31, 2009

In honor of tonight’s season finale of the ingenious AMC series Breaking Bad, here’s SAVE WALTER WHITE dot com.  If you don’t know what I’m talking about, that’s okay.  But maybe this’ll get some folks to tune in.  Either way, my job is done.

Dancing Bear

May 30, 2009

Yeah.  I’m not completely sold on this one.  S’kind of a Jim Steinman-type rock opera featuring a bear with tear-away pants.  Yes, I just said “bear with tear-away pants.”  It’s not as disturbing as that Orangina commercial a while back but I have trouble accepting birds that poop candy because even though it’s delicious I’m never eating any confection that came out of an avian’s anus. 

Hide In Plain Sight

Want to combine your love for cinema with your obsession for puzzles?

Check out Empire’s THE CRYPTIC CANVAS!  All you need to do is find the 50 film titles depicted within the picture.  Some are obvious and some … well, let’s just say that I’m still searching.

An Open Letter To That Woman In Chapel Hill

May 28, 2009

Hey, Luv. I appreciate that you live in Chapel Hill.  I know it’s a bastion of unadulterated liberalness.  That’s what I love about the town.  Hey, I went to school there.  I know.  I am one of you. 

But, lady, seriously.  It’s time to take the Kucinich 2008 bumper sticker off your Subaru.  Just need to scrape it right off.   Maybe use some WD-40. 

Keeping it on this long doesn’t make you an idealist, trust me.  It’s kinda sad really. 

Welcome To The Machine!

May 27, 2009

The folks at always manage to make me smile.  From spongemonkeys to cats’ knees, these guys are ever vigilant on the mission of creating fun and wacky music vids about anything and everything.

To wit: The Bagger 288, a German mobile strip mining machine that, to be honest, looks like something built for planetary defense.  And that’s just how the blokes at saw it.

Enjoy rathergood‘s ode to BAGGER 288!  Or, as more fitting the musical interpretation, look on these works, ye mighty, and despair!

Where The Streets Have One Name

May 26, 2009

Because we were just talking about Sesame Street – yeah, we were – just a few days ago.  Look down.  It’s there.  Down there!!!  Bloody hell, it’s like I’m pulling teeth here … um anyway, yeah check out these 10 AWESOME MOMENTS FROM SESAME STREET.  Personally, I’d prefer more of the Yip Yip aliens but anything that has the Ladybugs Picnic is cool in my book.

UPDATE:  Blast it!  I’ve got Me And My Llama stuck in my head now.

Snarks On A Plane

May 25, 2009

Last time I was on a plane, there was a bomb scare. 

Yeah, Son of the Mask was the in-flight movie.

Street Smarts

May 24, 2009

Here’s an article from Newsweek about Sesame Street!  Hard to believe that the veteran kids show is 40 years old, eh?  Forty?!  Damn.  I just made myself feel old.  And cry a little bit.
