Let HowToBasic help!
This is actually a pretty “normal” video for him.
Hi there sorry but this is adorable.
That is all. The rest of the world sucks.
So Nate found this six-part series on the Seattle Mariners and it is absolutely enthralling. Only parts 1-4 have been uploaded so far, but the next installment involves ICHIRO which is really the first thing I can remember about the Seattle Mariners. Check out the vids here (I’ll just post them all here once they’re all uploaded):
(That third one is intense.)
Seriously, even if you’re not really a baseball fan, this is super interesting.
This video seems highly relevant nowadays.
Sorry, I actually posted this video in a blog way back in 2010*, but I’ve been thinking about it recently. Can’t imagine why…
*It was around the time you came to visit me in Vancouver, Maddie; let’s see if I can get the correct date…March 16, 2010? *checks* Fucking nailed it. Why do I have this kind of memory for stupid things like specific dates and entire movie dialogues but can’t remember if I had dinner last night?
So have something sublime.
This is best served on a pair of Sennheisers, but if you don’t have Sennheisers, any old headphones with good bass will do.
(Also, god this song sounds so much better when it’s not played at 35 BPM.)
Even if you don’t follow baseball, you probably know the name “Barry Bonds.”
Well, want to see how good of a player he would have been even without a bat? Check it:
All that data makes me hot, yo.
I miss baseball.
I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned him on here before, but I want to mention him again ’cause he’s great. I first heard of him through his music video for “Hurt,” which YouTube recommended for me for some reason.
Turns out all his music videos are weird and fantastic.
And a new one (which is why I’m blogging about him today):
I love his pants.
I’m actually surprised they waited so long, but the US-Canadian border is now closed to all “non-essential” travel.
It’s only closed for 30 days, but I suspect it will extend for longer than that.
I know that this closure was a mutual decision between the US and Canada, but if things start to get really rough with all of this (economy-wise, especially), I really hope it doesn’t drive a wedge between the two countries. I’ve posted this video before on here, but I’ve been thinking about it with the recent talk of closing the border (and, of course, the actual closing of the border today).
Because I’m sure we could all use a laugh right now, here is a set of random crap I’ve found on the internet over the past few days that has made me laugh hysterically.
(I legit laughed for like 20 minutes over this stupid thing)
(This is an older one but every time I see it I laugh)
HEYOOOOO so I’ve been in a nostalgic mood lately (what else is new?) and wanted to re-live the Old Tubes via early YouTube videos and AlbinoBlackSheep.
So here were are. Let’s reminisce.
The ultimate oldie. I had a friend in high school who looked just like this dude.
Another classic oldie.
AlbinoBlackSheep was a fantastic website for Flash animations like this. “OHIOOOOOOOOOO!”
Can’t forget this one, either.
GOD, WE ARE OLD
I have this song. I can’t unhear these lyrics.
Maddie, how often did we quote from this when we were at U of I? I still say “let’s get ‘em” in my head when I’m buying something expensive.
This one too, oh my god. Benny Lava is a legend.
I think Aaron found this one. We were shouting “WHAT?!?!?!” at each other for months after we first watched this.
Al Gore getting murdered by earths is the funniest thing in this whole video.
This was another one we quoted a lot in the house. “DON’TYOUFUCKINGLOOKATME!”
I still love this so much.
Presto starts at 8:18. That deep note at 10:26 is nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnf.
I should never be let around an organ. All I’d do is find the deepest note and play it as loud as possible, shattering all eardrums in a 10-mile radius.
Calgary should use this as an official tourism video, seriously.
I know, I know. Another time-lapse. But this one is fantastic. The transitions are so smooth and beautiful, and that shot of The Bow building at 0:37 is stunning.
Hahaha, this is great.
It makes me miss my random Omegle conversations with strangers.
Hey y’all, do you want to watch someone review horrible books? Check out KrimsonRogue!
He does regular book reviews and other stuff as well, but I found him through his review of Onision’s Stones to Abbigale.
Here’s the link to his playlist of “oh god these are horrible and they hurt to read.”
I like him; he’s like a mix of five nerdy people I’ve known in my past.
I’m feeling super homesick today for whatever reason.
That’s not an uncommon occurrence; every once and a while I just really miss Moscow.
Anyway, during my usual Reddit browsing this evening, I came across a post on the r/Idaho subreddit asking about songs that featured Idaho. A lot of them were pretty good, but my favorites have to be “Idaho” by Reckless Kelly and “Idaho” by Gregory Alan Isakov. Crying happened.
Idaho may be a backwards, Republican, redneck haven, but it’s my home and I miss it.
If I haven’t yet convinced you that Sunshine is a beautiful, heart-wrenching, mind-wrenching movie, give this a watch and see if it does it for you.
It really is a wonderful movie (with the most beautiful score).
Eminem is 47 years old.
Eminem just released a new surprise album, Music to be Murdered By.
One of the songs, “Godzilla,” features some of the fastest rapping I’ve ever heard. Check it:
Apparently in that fastest verse (starting at 2:57), he’s rapping 10.65 syllables per second. That’s ridiculous.
Eminem’s still got it.
A cover of a Coldplay song with brass (and saxes)? Sign me up.
This sounds so freaking cool.
Sorry, that’s all I’ve got today.
I feel like EIGHT LEVELS OF GARBAGE today because my brain is phenomenal at taking really good news and turning it into sadness.
So here’s some more zodiac sillies, ‘cause screw it all.
That Aquarius/Sagittarius one at 8:13 really got me laughing, haha. I was not expecting that at all.
So guess what video popped up in my “Recommended” list on YouTube?
God this gave me flashbacks of 2008 when all we did was quote Ebeeto’s videos. I remember Sean, Aaron, Lanky, and myself just randomly shouting “SOLID!” all the freaking time.
Here’s part 2 in case you need to see how it ends.
And the infamous Yogi Bear one.
So 2020 is already a flaming hot pile of GARBAGE and I hate it.
What a shock.
So because I feel like my entire life is not worth living anymore and because I have absolutely no motivation to exist, you’re getting a crappy blog post.
(As opposed to…?)
I enjoy “Zodiac signs as…” things, so we’re gonna do those today. ‘Cause I need something that will make me laugh or I’m going to go find the nearest bridge and go weeeeeeeee.
Also it’s Christmas. Merry Christmas.
I spent most of the day in various airports, but at least I got to walk/run this morning before I left. So yay!
In the spirit of Christmas, have a beautiful rendition of Carol of the Bells.
A Child from the Future: “Grandpa, what did you do for fun when you were younger?”
Look at these Millennials ruin everything.
Those vacuums in that pile of cereal, though, that was hysterical.
