In trying to find something for this week, I had a choice between something obnoxious and something a bit on the sweet side. So.... Here is a video about pandas to one of the most obnoxious songs I know.See videos...Collapse )

Running late [Jul. 8th, 2009|06:07 pm]

So I missed last week and I've been a slug this week, but here's a late Twisted Tuesday entry:

Recently I found a show called Science in the Movies on the Science Channel. The host, Nar Williams, is almost too geeky, but it's in a look-at-all-this-stuff-isn't-it-neat kind of way. Some of the stuff I already know, but some of it is stuff I might actually be able to use. This coming week's episode, though, just looks like a lot of fun. This week, Nar is taking us to Jim Henson's Creature Shop.

Nearly everyone my age has seen The Muppet Show and at least two or three of the Muppet Movies. And a lot of people my age (and slightly older) have seen the Muppet bits on the first two seasons of SNL. But a co-worker recently told me of a series of local commercials with what I would call Proto-Muppets. The following clips show those commercials in all their black and white glory. Enjoy!

[music |Light Comes Out Of Black by Rob Halford]

June 23rd is the birthday of Joss Whedon. While known for dark and generally serious shows such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, and Dollhouse, he has been known to show a sense of humor. In additional the successful Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, he is sometimes caught on camera doing fun things. Here is Joss pretending he's someone dressed up as him.



Also, while it's not very comedic, you can check out the fanvid I made for Serenity.

[music |That thing up there]

It's no secret that songs reflect the times they are written in, from old Vaudeville acts to the 70s Friendly Neighborhood Narco Agent to today's economic troubles. But just how far will people go to get what they need? Here's a new video from RunAwayBox.



Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go pay my bills.

[music |The Future Soon by Jonathan Coulton]

In February of 2008, I attended a concert at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. Although I'd seen Jonathan Coulton before, this concert was different. A professional video crew was going to be recording the show and had invited fans to bring their own video equipment to record shots from the show as well. I was there with a borrowed cam-corder and (by virtue of showing up early) front row seats.

Jonathan Coulton is best known for funny geeky songs such as Re: Your Brains, Skullcrusher Mountain, Code Monkey, and his cover of Baby Got Back. However, he also has some very touching songs such as his song about parenting (You Ruined Everything), about seizing life (A Talk With George), and even about the demotion of certain planets (I'm Your Moon).

The DVD/CD set is finally out (and has been for nearly a month), but due to an address issue I got my copy late. However, I have finally seen it and the DVD is nearly as good as the show I remember. So from that DVD, this week's video is the opening song The Future Soon.



To order the DVD, see Jonathan's page at whatarerecords.com.

[music |Audience Laughter]

On May 30th, 1908, Melvin Jerome Blanc was born. Although he worked for 6 decades doing voice work for commercials, he is best known for his work with Warner Bros. creating the voices of Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Sylvester the Cat, and Pepé LePe, and voicing a number of already established characters such as Elmer Fudd and Porky Pig.
Six volumes of Looney Tunes Collections are currently available on DVD. I grew up watching Looney Tunes as did most of the people before and slightly after my generation. If you know someone who hasn't seen them, point them at www.looneytunes.com. They have a number of the cartoons online for free.Psst! Under here, Doc!Collapse )

Twisted Tuesdays - Deity [May. 26th, 2009|08:29 pm]

[music |Mr. Diety]

Mr. Deity is a series of short episodes dealing with God and starting its third season. The first season it had to break out on its own, but it was wonderfully done. By the time season 2 started, they had a contract with Sony to carry the show on Crackle.com. This week I point you to their parody of the Frost/Nixon trailer.

I highly recommend the whole series. Just make sure you watch the episodes in order.

[music |Pancreas by "Weird Al" Yankovic]

As most of my friends know while I don't consider myself fanatical about anything, the closest I come to it is declaring myself a "Weird Al" Yankovic fan. However, most people who do consider themselves Al Fanatics put me to shame. (I'm looking at you, Tony Goldmark.)
Today's Twisted Tuesday episode is somewhat delayed due to a pain in my side. I'm hoping it's some kind of weird pulled muscle rather that an internal organ deciding that its warranty has expired. Nonetheless, here's a handy song by "Weird Al" that teaches us about the pancreas with some physics thrown in for good measure.


Hope to be back in better shape next week. Eventually there will be more "Weird Al" video, but I'll try not to force them on people too often.

[music |Wonderful Night by Fatboy Slim]

No, no... not Monty Python. These are a couple things that don't really fall in the demented music category. The first clip is an incredible bit of stop motion animation. The music is a little 80's video-game-ish, but it keeps the auditory parts of the brain busy while the eyes stay amazed. Here is wolf and pig:



And hidden safely behind the cut is a group of grown men acting terribly silly. Probably trying to freak out the people who had been smoking too much on April 20th.Read more...Collapse )
