Because Macy's hates you

11/27/2009 - Macy's Thanksgiving parade RickRoll

Rick Astley Rick Rolls America during the Macy's parade. I suppose its not fair to warn you about the Rick Roll, since the whole point of a Rick Roll is to be fooled into watching something else.  But the title of the vid and the screen cap gives it away, so I figured why not. Besides, even though you expect it, its still funny. Rick Astley seems pretty good natured about the whole thing. That's because he's the man. 

I'm done with the fucking news!

11/20/2009 - : News : Foamy The Squirrel

I love Foamy. It was so hard to pick just one of his cartoons. He's a foul-mouthed squirrel that rants about all the things we all find annoying.  

I'm gonna tie you to the radiator and grape you!

11/13/2009 - WKUK-The Grapist

Selling a new grape juice targeted at kids.  These marketing execs have their reservations, but I think they are on to something swell. 

I gotta get my drink on

11/06/2009 - The Little Landlady

Starring Will Farrell's daughter, Pearl. The Little Lady is about a drunken, abusive landlady who drives Will off the deep end.  

Girls rock.

10/23/2009 - Siouxsie and the Banshees - Halloween - Live 1981

The final installment of ROCKTOBER '09 falls a day shy of Halloween, so what better addition to the ongoing ensemble than with the Godmother of Goth herself 

Girls rock.

10/23/2009 - I'm So Sick - FLYLEAF

This particular song by Flyleaf came out of a couple of years ago.  They sound great, rock hard, and should be cranked up over your freakin' headphones. 

We are but men!

10/16/2009 - Tenacious D - Tribute

Okay, also not obscure, but this video might be. Besides, this is ROCKTOBER! How can Tenacious D be passed by? 

Happy birthday, John.

10/09/2009 - John Lennon - Cold Turkey

A bonus YotW for 10/09 on John Lennon's Birthday. ROCKTOBER caters to the new and obscure music, but for this special day, I had to include John. Happy Birthday, John! 

Enough said.

10/09/2009 - Chickenfoot - Get it up

Chickenfoot is made up of Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony, Joe Satriani, and Chad Smith (from the chili peppers). I was pretty bummed to hear that Sammy and Michael were dumped from Van Halen, but when I heard they hooked up with Joe and Chad for this, I was psyched. Shake your booty. 

crank this

10/02/2009 - The Kovenant - Jihad

ROCKTOBER kicks off with The Kovenant! They've been around for around 10 years and they have a great sound. Keyboards and metal .. so few bands can truly combine these mediums. I regret I couldn't find a music video, so you'll have to stare at a picture of the band for the duration. But it's the music we're after, right? 

um....

9/25/2009 - 9.12 DC TEA PARTY - MARCH FOOTAGE WITH INTERVIEWS

Teabaggers! Or an exercise in how many people can we get to march for a cause they don't understand. Yay liberty! 

shake your booty

You would be upset too.  

I thought this bill was about the climate

8/28/2009 - Auto-Tune the News #6: Michael Jackson. drugs. Palin.

Autotune is the latest craze in singing and rapping and fly fishing. Everything sounds better when its auto tuned, even the news. But its not the autotuning that makes this an instant classic.. its the blue (green?) screening and little bits thrown in.  

Buffalos. Kick. Your. Ass.

8/21/2009 - Battle at Kruger

You need to watch this to the end. Trust me. It looks awful and you may think "why is he posting this?" but yea.. trust me. Water Buffalos kick your ass.  

How do I beat him?

I love stuff like this. Makes me want to produce something the the same effect in Flash. With all my copious free time...  

twin forearm block!

I got my blue belt in June, but I forgot to post the new form I'm learning. Its called Won-Hyo. 28 movements. Giggity.

Akiva and Jorm from the Lonely Island. Like me, they are huge sportz nutz and we don't care who knows. 

Take it sax man!

07/24/2009 - Sax Man- The Lonely Island (feat. Jack Black)

A fan made this video for "Sax Man" by the Lonely Island off the Incredibad album. I like this vid better than some of the other fan made ones out there. There is no official MV from the band yet. 

Package Deals?

07/17/2009 - The Jerky Boys - Cremation Services

I wanted to add a Jerky Boys track this week. It was so hard to pick one. Check this and browse through the dozens of other JB clips. Love these guys. 

Roller Derby!

07/10/2009 - TAINTSTICK "Apple Juice"

Funny video about a guy who.. well, there is this guy.. um.. well, you'll have to watch it. 

History is fun.

Some interesting history of our Declaration of Independence. Happy Fourth!

Dare I say Hitchcockian?

06/19/2009 - the wife's position

My cousin in-law worked on this short film. Its a nifty piece with a great twist at the end.

Cuter than anything else you've seen today.

Hammered monkeys. 'Nuff said.

05/22/2009 - Alcoholic Vervet Monkeys! - Weird Nature - BBC animals

Monkeys wander onto the beach and steal your drinks. They booze it up, fall down drunk, and come back for more. 

Clean cut zappa plays the bicycle.

05/15/2009 - frank zappa

Zappa on the Steve Allen show. This just shows how way ahead of his time he was. This was decades before "Stomp" and all these alternate percussion styles. Nobody knew what to make of him. 

Send some Faxes!

05/08/2009 - Like a Boss (feat. Seth Rogan)

From the dudes of Lonely Island. Featured on SNL's digital shorts, but it must be seen in its uncensored splendor. 

George Harrison Sings!

05/01/2009 - The Pirate Song (colour) George Harrison 

A short number before the ending credits from Rutland Weekend Television. 

Do San!

04/24/2009 - Do-san Hyung 

This is the current form I'm learning in order to attain my blue belt. 24 moves. It has kicks in it! Ooooh. 

I find that offensive.

04/17/2009 - Seth MacFarlane's Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy 

It starts off with this nice one about a Horse in a bar, then queues up others. I think this horse one is one of my favs, though. 

For rich flavor and filtered somkin'

04/10/2009 - Flintstones selling cigarettes (old commercial)

Disturbing. 
Boska!

04/03/2009 - Lapti Nek (Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi Song)

If you watch Star Wars (Return of the Jedi) now, its got "Jedi Rocks", the revised / special edition musical number in Jabba's palace. But this little number is the original song that Sy Snoodles and the Rebo band performed. I like it better. 
I want a poo poo!

03/27/2009 - Japanese Toilet Training For Kids English Subtitled 

This is an actual Japanese comerical for a child's potty training device. The singing makes it awesome. 
I am a banana!

Um... just watch it. 
Hey, man! You better buy me a beer!

03/13/2009 - Joe Cartoon: St. Patrick's Bar

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Pug!

03/06/2009 - Pug Vs. Fig Newton

Before they began being harvested by mankind, the Fig Newton grew wild and free. Only the Pug was its natural enemy. Here we see an age old battle of a Pug vs. a Fig Newton. Biologists and Botonists agree that the Fig Newton would have become extinct without man's intervention. Once overhunted by the Pugs, it has been on a steady comeback since the 1960s.
Almost there at the drive through.

02/27/2009 - "Weird Al" Yankovic - Trapped in the Drive-Thru

This is a great parody of the multichapter piece by R. Kelly. What makes this one great is that if you have ever had a conversation with your significant other about where to go out to eat, you'll appreciate it. It seems something so simple as deciding what resaurant to hit is always this massive decision. The song is 11 minutes, but it really is worth the view. Plus, its Weird Al, so you know its funny.
I think we're dying.

02/20/2009 - Dumbest Cop Ever

Cop bakes confiscated pot into brownies. Eats them, and thinks he's dying, so naturally he calls 911. Better than the cop's recorded description of this ordeal is the newscasters laughing while trying to report it.

practice.. practice...

02/13/2009 - Dan-Gun

This is the second form I'm currently learning in Tae Kwon Do. I have it down, but I'm still pretty sloppy with it. Dan-Gun has 21 moves and as far as forms go, its one of the baics.

I always wanted a BFF

02/06/2009 - Sloppy Drunk Lisa Nova

I just found this funny and stubled upon it by accident. The first two minutes are pretty much it, and the remaining twenty seconds or so is just propaganda about her web page.

Come on baby, don't be cold as ice!

01/30/2009 - Beatles "One After 909" Rooftop Concert

Forty years ago TODAY, the Beatles climbed to the rooftop of the Apple studios building and started jamming out. They had not appeared live since 1966 and the surrounding business area was swept into a pandimonium. Fans gathered, spectators and curious onlookers left their offices to get a glimpse, the police were called - it was unprecedented. The song "One After 909" is just one of their numbers they did that day, but the footage is a litlte more obscure than them doing "Get Back". Forty Years ago....

Candy Moutain, Charlieeeeee!

01/23/2009 - Charlie the Unicorn

Travel to a fantasy land of unicorns and wonder! Oooooooh! Its enchanted and magical! Weeeeeee!

Asshole of the universe.

01/20/2009 - Goodbye George Bush

A bonus YOTW! In honor of the departure of our 43rd President, for your viewing pleasure, a funny jab at "W", but with a great spin on an old classic Queen song. America! Woooo!

PEEEOW PEEEPOW PEEEOW!

01/16/2009 - The 10 Greatest Sounds from Star Wars

Just for fun. I'm not sure these are all my favorite sound effects, or if they are the order in which I would have ranked them, but its a fun list. You love Star Wars.

Seltzer water will never be the same.

01/09/2009 - Pozovi Menya - SMS

In honor of "coming home day", the day we brought Zack to USA, I thought I'd share a little Ukrainian spice for everyone. The tune is catchy, the group is sexy, download the lyrics from somewhere and sing along! Happy Coming Home Day!

Sharks? Brilliant. Nazis? Rubbish.

01/02/2009 - Ricky Gervais - Animals - Sharks and Nazis

The original creator of "The Office", Ricky Gervais, is hilarious. Here he explains the essential differences between sharks and nazis. Sharks? Brilliant. Nazis? Rubbish.
