Commentary for the worst movie you've ever seen



This is one of my favorite podcasts, they've had 60 previous episodes in which they review bad to terrible movies for a solid hour, hour and a half. Last months was Street Fighter with Raul Julia and Jean Claude... Probably the best worst movie I've ever seen is Sleepaway Camp, and each month I try to watch whatever movie they are going to review as homework, so I have some clue as to what the movie is about. Oh man, there has been an abundance of good times in my head.

Also, I like how their version of the Junior poster is a triple-entendre (screw you spellcheck!) for the question, "how did this get made?" Its very meta.

To make up for the untidyness of my previous posts


Louie makes fun of peanut allergies, troop casualties and slavery, all in the same joke

DJ Brainwreck



It might be hard to watch all the way to the end. Whats funny is, the guy doesn't actually mix one song, yet spends a lot of his time pretending to queue up "records" (Serato)... All the stupid knob adjustments he's doing (cut and expand the treble) are far more for show than audio pleasure. Except when he fades the track down to MC over it, which he shouldn't be doing at all...

DJing is actually much easier than this guy makes it seem. The less you intrude your ego into the set, the better. In my opinion.

I hope anonymous made some serious cash from this



When I woke up to see this, I thought Google had made an error. But it turns out a moment of panic originating from a false tweet "briefly wiped out about $140 billion in U.S. market value," causing  every major stock to plunge for about 5 minutes. 

I can't help but feel that the stock market is only as smart as its stupidest Twitter user.

Infinite Busey



"I wonder if they will clone me one day, their could be an infinite little Busey's out there." - Gary Busey

Brilliant track, even better video


This song gives me a hardon. From Bonobo's latest album.

 The #1 YouTube comment: "when I watch this video, I think about my salvia time trip to the 1950's."

FAMILY GUY PREDICTS BOSTON ATTACK!


... yeah except the problem is, the video is edited together out of sequence. In the original episode, Peter wins the marathon by driving his car over everybody else in the race, not by detonating explosives! The explosives detonation has nothing to do with the marathon in that episode. 

This is why I have big problems with a lot of modern-day conspiracy theories: their proponents latch on to supportive evidence to such a crazy degree that their ego won't let them re-evaluate the quality of the evidence and how it actually fits into the grand scheme of things. 

Most internet "evidence" I've seen for modern-day conspiracies is basically a version of the above dialog, though some are a bit more crafty and cunning in their manipulation than others. 

What's a more likely conspiracy is that bud is super potent now, causing a decent segment of the population to be chronically paranoid about shit that's not really real.

"After I'm dead, none of this will matter."


- "Big Benbot" Bernanke, AKA The Moleman

That's the only rationale he could possibly have for printing money in order to buy U.S. treasury bonds. I thought the government was supposed to sell bonds to other people, not to itself. If the government then takes a huge loss on said bonds, say after China and Japan are fed up with our currency manipulation and sell all their U.S. bonds, who really loses?

I guess the safe bet is always on the U.S. because if it were to fail, it could fuck up everybody, and nobody wants that. Just ask Iceland. Still, 2 years worth of gold gains were just wiped out in the last 2 days; something's up.

Arnold's Predator pics were completely ripped off for at least two video game covers, and may have inspired a few others...

Except for the orientation of his head, the Crack Down guy on the right is a total rip of Arnold in the picture on the right.
The NES Contra cover is a direct theft of the two predator pictures below. They just gave both guys headbands and changed the hair of the guy on the right.

Video game artwork that wasn't trying to be gay, but...

It might be the case that his abs are showing through because his armor was ripped, but it kind of looks like the suit was designed with a bare midriff.


Skin-tight purple tank top and matching purple pants. Leather boots. Princess sword, and an effeminate pose. Oh yeah.


The tender longing in Haggar's eyes belies a forbidden need to kiss the man he's just met in the truck-stop men's room.


This one would require just the smallest amount of digital manipulation to make it ideal.

Great video game art of yore...

 Oh it's for the Jaguar, I get it.
 Notice the disturbing, Sea Monster like appearance of his maw.
 I imagine this game pitted the player against a satisfyingly diverse array of enemies.
 Yup.
 Thank god they didn't cop out with arcade style physics.
 This just doesn't make any sense.
 The game is the cartridge!  Sega was so meta back in the day.
Your wife's 1st graders are an inexhaustible supply of royalty-free cover art for your next gaming franchise.

 Apparently this game is all about the dog.
 Go ahead and stare at that dude for 3 minutes straight. It feels good.
 
At least it says 'Megablast.'

Nauru

... was the least visited country in the world in 2012, being tiny and out in the middle of nowhere. With obesity and unemployment rates in the 90s and a life expectancy in the 60s, they are also the most fucked nation in the world. The country is 8 square miles but divided into 14 different districts, making it about twice as big as what I would consider to be my neighborhood, but with far less people (9,300).  Their land was stripped for its sweet phosphate some time ago.






The 25 least visited country list is here, and its a really interesting article.

I spent about 2 hrs on Wikipedia reading about some of these various countries last night, then another 2 hrs reading about ancient civilizations as I was sucked down a Wikipedia hole.
