Sheer Linkage Part 1: YouTubage
This is an attempt to excise some of the excess linkage I've built up over the last few weeks. Rather than give these their own posts I'm going to cram them together into sheer hypertext overload, the best kind of overload. Take heed, my friends - if you like the sort of things that I post, you'll probably find more than a little to like here:
These two clips from the Ben Stiller show are funny as any sketch comedy I've ever seen. Those of you familiar with the deluded ramblings of Charles Manson should enjoy the short clip "Ask Manson," but the longer clip "Drugs are Bad" could have you falling out of your chair, especially if one of the legs is weak or something.
Chico Marx really was an excellent pianist. Too bad I never watched "Night at the Opera" the whole way through.
Those of you familiar with Rammstein may enjoy the juxtaposition of this clip involving the Teletubbies dancing to "Sonne", or this Russian parody of the group.
The Nostalgia Critic has done some excellent work. I highly recommend his "In Five Seconds" series, summing up a popular flick in a few brief moments (usually going a little over five seconds, though). Link Link Link Link Linkity Link Link Link. I recommend his longer reviews as well, such as his Cloverfield review which should amuse any who saw the movie. His ketchup ad (for a contest) ain't bad either.
Finally, a mass of great music and music videos: Subtle - Earthsick, The Decemberists - Sixteen Military Wives, Burial - Archangel, The Avalanches - Frontier Psychiatrist, Mudhoney (The influential grunge outfit) Playing the "Bill Nye" Theme
