Just When You Think It Can’t Get Any Weirder

Thursday, August 28, 2014 9:00 pm

This serves no purpose, other than to be a not-dull way to pass 3 minutes. I guess the best way to describe it is “Gilliamesque“.

If you want a political metaphor, I guess I’d say this is the land of “Obamacare Works”.

Feel free to turn the sound down or off if it gets on your nerves. It’s all about the visuals.

And be cautious about viewing other items on this guy’s channel… depending on where you draw the line between unpredictable and unsettling, he can get pretty creepy.

Odd, Yet Inarguable

That first thought’s a little disturbing, but otherwise I was just amused by this:

[Do You Pass the Israel Test?] (Viewer #478,027)

This video is full of interesting numbers that I’d never heard before, but certainly would’ve been told every day since 9/11 by the liberal media if those numbers belonged to any Muslim country.

The Science of Sinking

There’s probably a metaphor for Obama’s Iraq policy in here, somewhere.

No Mistakes

No single trick that he does is especially mind-blowing, but the fact that he keeps doing one after another after another without flaw or error… the effect is cumulative.

Oh, and yes, the video is just as impressive without that nerve-grating background music, so feel free to hit mute.

I hate this video because they’re right. There was once a time when I didn’t know how to mock liberals on the internet or post nerdy videos. But I learned.

And if *I* learned, so can an AI.

I don’t like where this is going

It’s Like Tim Burton Without The Singing

Saturday, August 16, 2014 3:00 pm

Reminded me a little of “Corpse Bride” – or at least in a similar universe.


[This Way Up]

This Oscar Nominated short is directed by Smith & Foulkes and written by Foulkes, Smith, and Christopher O’Reilly, and produced at Nexus by Charlotte Bavasso and Christopher O’Reilly, the film follows two dour unfortunates as they battle a series of misadventures while trying to deliver a coffin to the graveyard.

I Think I Like *Matrix Reloaded* Better This Way

Friday, August 15, 2014 9:00 pm

Let’s face it: fistfights between immortal, indestructable beings are boring because you know no one will die or even get hurt – until they suddenly do.

Which is sorta like how 80′s video games handled displaying physical damage to your protagonist.

Might as well SOUND like an 80′s video game, then:

Zoom In & Enhance!

Tuesday, August 12, 2014 9:00 pm

Quite possibly the TV trope I find most annoying:


[YouTube direct link] (Viewer #2,421,534)

This video does more of a direct parody of the concept, especially the question “what the heck are these people typing on their keyboards? Isn’t picture enhancement more of pointy-clicky-mousey activity?”

Lots of NSFW in it, though.

For Fifth Element Fans: The Rest of The Diva’s Performance

Monday, August 11, 2014 9:00 pm

From the YouTube description:

“This Voice” belongs to an Albanian opera singer named Inva Mula Tchako. The title of the aria she is singing is called “Il Dolce Suono”. They ONLY edited the part [with the rapid pitch changes] (towards the end, because a human voice can’t change pitches that fast). But those high notes you’re hearing are definitely reachable for soprano singers like Inva. The actress only lip-synced it
