Feel Good Friday: I DARE You.

August 29, 2008

Of all of Damon Albarn‘s insane projects, Gorillaz is my favorite because it’s so unstoppably funky in an experimental trip-hop sort of way. If you don’t shake your ass to this video, you are the whitest person in the history of honkeydom.


Death Race (2008) Review

August 24, 2008

I have a problem with any movie based heavily on cars. They always affect me a bit too much, and usually not for the best. Here’s an example:

After I saw Grindhouse, I sped all the way home. Not just like a little speeding, I mean a lot speeding. I had the highway to myself, so I just put the hammer down. Not all the way, but farther than I usually speed. After watching Paul W.S. Anderson’s remake of the 1975 cult classic Death Race 2000, I wanted to strap some .50 caliber machine guns onto the roof of my 1992 Buick four-door and drop a chunk of 6-inch-thick steel armor plating onto the jerk who tailgated me all the way home.

If you’re ready to go out and run down old ladies for extra points, read my Death Race review here. Actually, they took out the points system in this one, which is a shame. I loved the scene below.

Which only goes to show that even the fearsome Frankenstein has a 100% red-blooded American sense of humor!

Feel Good Friday – Dancing in Rock and Roll High School

August 15, 2008

I love Rock and Roll High School. It’s the right combination of insane and cheesy to really sit well in my heart. The Ramones hang out with PJ Soles? Sure, I’m definitely down with that. Even if it’s too late to get the Feel Good Friday blogroll bump.

This particular ending song montage from Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode 904, over the fake Injun music of the Joe Estevez classic Werewolf, never ceases to make me cackle. I’ve heard it a thousand times, and it never fails to be the highlight of whatever day I happen to watch it, and is probably one of the funniest things they’ve EVER done. That includes their various names for the David Rider character from Space Mutiny.

I’m grinning dumbly as we speak.

EDIT: Well, I forgot about the “He Tried To Kill Me With A Forklift” song from Fugitive Alien and Fugitive Alien II. Then again, pretty much all the songs from MST3K are awesome, from “Where oh Werewolf?” to “A Patrick Swayze Christmas” and “Jet Jaguar.”

Feel Good Friday: The 13th

June 13, 2008

Joining up with Ginger, Coma, SQ, and the rest of the tubes for a feel-good Friday. Yes, I’m a hopeless trend-follower.

Bonus below the cut: the better Jason compilation video, with Ron’s Drive-In Totals.


Teen Idols at the Midnight Picture Show

June 11, 2008

I saw these guys live at the old Pandemonium before it closed, and before they broke up. They’re the best band to ever come out of Nashville, Tennessee. That’s all I’ve got to say.

Fast forward to the 1:37 mark. Then please join me in stabbing out your ear drums. Personally, I’m going to use a broken fork I stole from the campus dining center in college. I stole the fork because it had only two tines on the outside, and no tines in the middle. Perfect for going Oedipus on your earballs.

As one of the comments said over at the Rifftrax blog where I stole this video from, “I never knew that Anton Chigurh was such a beautiful singer.”

Author’s Note: Before you ask, I don’t know a damn thing about this guy, why he’s singing in an invented language, or who exactly is stepping on his testicles to make him sing like a cat in a blender. If you know anything about this dude, please feel free to keep it to yourself. The LAST thing I need at this point is to obssess about this madman with the indestructible hair-helmet. Watching things like this is probably why I can’t sleep at night.
