Mochrie is God

Was sad. Then Whose Line helped a little.

I fought the blog and the blog won

Oh my god, I haven’t laughed this hard at a YouTube video in a long time.

I’m fucking crying.

Dudes, Primer is on YouTube

Ever since I met Nate, I’ve been raving to him about Primer, a movie made back in 2004 that focuses on some ordinary people accidentally discovering time travel. It was a super low budget movie ($7,000) and wasn’t very widely released, which means it’s super hard to find.

But hey, there’s a legit version of it on YouTube, which is awesome! I haven’t seen this movie since we watched it in high school physics.

So for anyone who wants some super dense time travel fun, here ya go.

DAAAAAAAAAALE

I have no idea how many of my readers watch Riverdale (or watched it back when it was relatively sane*), but this video was in my recommended today and I can’t stop laughing at the accuracy.

That black hood one, oh my god.

*First season = typical teen drama TV, not too bad; second season = WTF

Edit: OH MY GOD SEASON THREE WHAT DRUGS DID YOU TAKE AND CAN I HAVE SOME

VROOM!

I saw this clip on Robot Chicken when it originally aired.

I think about it a lot for some reason.

Anyway. Sorry, don’t have anything else to say today.

SOMEBODY EXPLAIN SOMETHING TO ME

Why has this song suddenly emerged from my childhood memories and why has it been continuously playing through my head all day?

Lampy was always my favorite.

I love how this movie has such contrasting songs. We’ve got this innocent “life is magical journey, and at the end is the a wonderful city of possibilities!” and then later we get this, which is “Gilbert Gottfried in hanging lamp form gives a lesson on the horrors of existence,” then even later we get this, which is “everything is worthless, including you, forget your friends and family ‘cause they were lying to you about your importance.”

It’s like an analogy for one’s outlook on life as one grows up.

80’s kid’s movies, man.

Oh dear god

Matt, do you remember when we watched this whole DVD at Maggie’s after that horrible winter semester in 2007? I think we also played some near-naked Rock Band, but that might have been later.

Sometimes I miss undergrad.

Squidward is a Millennial

Change my mind.

The best part about that idea is that Squidward existed prior to the generally agreed-upon “lower limit” of the Millennial (SpongeBob started in 1999; most of the definitions of “Millennial” I’ve seen use the birth year range of early 1980s to early 2000s). This means that many Millennials grew up on a healthy dose of SpongeBob.

Perhaps we imprinted on Squidward! There’s your scapegoat, angry and critical Boomers. ‘Twas SpongeBob Squarepants all along.

The Prince of Egypt is Underrated

I think I’ve blogged about this movie in the past in various forms, but I just found this:

And it reminded me of how underrated this movie is. Not just in terms of the songs, but the whole thing.

I mean, this scene? This is some of the most beautiful animation I’ve seen.

I don’t know if it’s because my little stupid kid brain always pictured like 200 people going for like a quarter of a mile to cross the Red Sea when we read about all of this stuff in Catholic school, but when I first saw this movie I was amazed at the immense number of people and how long of a walk it was to cross the sea. It makes the story that much more impactful, I think.

And yeah, I know, bible stuff, but still. This movie is really well done. Watch it if you haven’t.

Edpool

The highway scene in Deadpool overdubbed with sound effects from Ed, Edd, n’ Eddy? FANTASTIC.

Ed makes a great Deadpool, honestly. And this made me realize just how sound effect-heavy EE&E was. Such a good cartoon.

CARBO

I’d love to see someone who knows nothing about Aqua Teen Hunger Force watch this scene and try to figure out what in the actual living fuck the show is about.

Hell, I’d like to see someone who is very familiar with Aqua Teen Hunger Force watch this scene and try to figure out what in the actual living fuck the show is about.

Master Shake reminds me of my friend Zack from high school for some reason.

Also, I used to watch this show a lot during my first year of college. This and Futurama.

…then Metalocalypse.

Community: My Anti-Depressant

So the past week and a half has been a shit show.

But then I saw that someone had uploaded all of the Community end credit scenes from seasons 1 – 3 and that helped make things a lot better.

THE AVALANCHE

I’ve seen my fair share of movies in my life.

But this damn avalanche scene from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is still one of my favorite movie moments.

Couldn’t tell you why, but I’ve always loved the avalanche. Ask my mom.

Anyway.

ATHF

Someone’s posted a whole ton of Aqua Teen Hunger Force episodes on YouTube and I’m having a flashback party to when I used to watch this show all the time in college.

I’d forgotten how weird it was.

It also got me into Metalocalypse, ’cause that was always on after ATHF. And we all know I love Metalocalypse.

Explain to me…

Why this show opening of all show openings has been stuck in my head today.

Confession:

I feel like “Stranger Things” is overhyped. I watched the first season with Nate and I honestly didn’t see what the big deal was. Do people just like it because ZOMG 80s?

BobSponge

Nostalgia, anyone? [had to link a new one ’cause the old one got taken down]

I recognize about 97% of these. I used to watch a lot of Spongebob.

Sorry, it’s been a crappy day and this is all I’ve got right now.

Sun

This week has been awful, what with losing Annabelle and feeling really shitty for not being there for her when she was put down.

So this video was very much needed.

If you’ve never watched It’s Always Sunny, you’re missing out, yo. It’s the craziest. As one commenter says: “Out of context this show looks insane. In context this show is insane.” Truth.

Boozle

Holy crapples, I love the intro to The Defenders. Both the music and the animation. Check it:

The best one yet. Rankings:

1. The Defenders (music and animation)
(Edited to add): Punisher (music and animation) (Punisher and The Defenders are tied for first)

 

2. Daredevil (music and animation)

 

3. Iron Fist (music)

 

4. Jessica Jones

 

5. Luke Cage

Y’all know I like to rank things.

RAGNAROK

HOLY CRAPPLES, Y’ALL.

Go see Thor: Ragnarok. Do it. It’s so good. It’s probably my second favorite Marvel movie after The Avengers.

(Edit: OKAY I LIED IT’S MY FAVORITE)

I knew I was going to love it after that first fight scene. Go watch it and tell me that scene doesn’t get you PUMPED.
