Bloodsport Mentos

Ok, this is one of my favorites. Some genius out on the internet decided it was a good idea to make scenes from the film "Bloodsport" into a parody of a Mentos commercial. I never get tired of this.

Abe Lincoln

I know, I'm on a crazy video kick, but who doesn't like crazy videos? This one is from The Whitest Kids You Know, a New York City based comedy troupe. They currently have a show on IFC (Independent Film Channel), and you can see their show free online at So, here's the video: What Really Happened to Abe Lincoln

Old Gregg

Here's another weird video. This one is from The Mighty Boosh, a British television program, from the episode "The Legend of Old Gregg." There's really nothing to say about this, except that it's very strange.

Evil Floating Head

I just randomly ran into this today. It's a crazy video. Watch it. Not much to say about that.

Evil Floating Head

Unsurprisingly, a little investigation quickly led to Waverly Films, the creator of this and many other crazy videos.

Michael Gum

Michael Gum is a talented nerd musician. I say nerd musician not because I know much of anything about him, but because he covers video game songs on his guitar. This clearly makes him a nerd. Here's his Livejournal. All of the tindeck music links work, but thrownwood has gone down the tubes, so don't bother clicking on those. Some of the missing video game tracks can be found on his Myspace Music page.

Demotivational Posters

We've all seen those motivational posters with the inspiring picture and the cheesy motivational phrase. I'm sure you've all seen demotivators as well, spoofs on these motivational pictures featuring snarky phrases. You've probably also seen home made demotivators on the internet. Now there's a place where you can check out more demotivators than your body has room for.

You'll Shit Bricks

I know, it's an odd name. It comes from a type of demotivator created for the internet which features a picture with something hidden in it (or nothing hidden just to mess with you), and the phrase "When you see it, you'll shit bricks." The website features many types of demotivators, it just takes its name from that type.

Not all of these are safe for work. Fortunately, they are split up, so you can choose to look at safe or unsafe.

The Last Stand

The Last Stand is a cool zombie base defense flash game. It was made by Con Artists Productions, and released through Armor Games. It's very much like other base defense games in terms of the basics, but several things distinguish it from others.

Instead of money or whatever to improve your base, you have a certain number of daylight hours each day to distribute between repairing the wall, searching for survivors, and searching for better weapons. More survivors allow you to get more done with your hours, and at night they help you fight off the zombies. Unfortunately, sometimes your survivors don't... well... survive the search parties.

Another distinction is that the graphics and animation are rather good. Many base defense games use very basic graphics, but these actually have a polish on them.

Make sure you click on the diary each day when you're choosing weapons. It adds some flavor to the game.

Also, I just noticed that Last Stand 2 has come out. I'm going to have to play that...

World's Hardest Game

Today it's World's Hardest Game. Now, I'm not saying this is the world's hardest game. It's not that it's not challenging, it is, but that's the title. I'd say it lives up to it pretty well. My only tip is patience. You're scored on deaths, not on time.

This game was made by Snubby Land. They have some other games on there too. I rather enjoy the hand drawn graphics on Super Tank.

This one's a little less geeky than my usual fare, but I had to include it because it's a really good site. Hulu features free videos. Sure, there's ads here and there, but they have TV shows, full movies, and clips. All that Saturday Night Live stuff you can't see on YouTube anymore? They have tons of SNL clips. Your favorite Daily Show and Colbert Report clips? They have that too. Excerpts from E3? Yup. Want to watch Ghostbusters, or Monty Python's Meaning of Life? They have the whole movie, and a bunch more. Full episodes of Heroes, or Firefly? You get the idea.

You don't need a login unless you want to watch NSFW stuff, and sign up is free.

Unfortunately, Hulu is only available to US residents, according to their sign up page. But hey, if you're in the US, and you want to watch something, check it out.

Homestar Runner

Looks like I took the week off last week. I'm going to ease back in with an easy one. Homestar Runner. I think most of the internet has seen Homestar, but for those who are new, or maybe unlucky enough to have not found it by now, here it is. There's a "First time here?" button on the right side of the front menu. Make sure you click on that. Homestar Runner has a lot of inside jokes and running gags, so if you don't get it at first, watch a few and things will become more clear.

Oh, did I forget to mention what Homestar Runner is? It's a lovely site featuring cartoons based on a children's book made as a joke. The favorite of the site is the "Strong Bad Emails" section, in which the villain of the book answers emails.

Will It Blend?

Will It Blend is a site filled with videos of unusual objects being decimated in a blender. It was created by Blendtec to promote their line of blenders. Tom Dickson, Blendtec founder, stars in each episode alongside the Blendtec Total Blender, a piece of machinery more like a chipper-shredder than a blender. Seriously. He blends a rake. It's awesome. There's also a section for blender projects to try at home, but the unsafe ones are the real treat. I love the one where he blends glow sticks.

You're the man now, dog!

You may remember the trailer for the film Finding Forrester, which introduced us several years ago to the wonder that is Sean Connery using urban slang. In the wake of this amazing occurrence, the original YTMND was formed. Since then, the official YTMND website has been the home of many crazy YTMNDs made by various people across the tubes. I'll link a few so you can get the idea:

Indiana Jones Can't Stop the Rock

YTMNDs often lead to spin-offs (One for Nethack fans)

Of course, Captain Picard is a popular topic...

Whether he's teaching art class...

Or just having a good time.

Professor X had One Weakness...

You get the idea. Go comb through the madness yourself.

I stumbled on this one a few years ago. It hasn't been updated for a while, but it still has a lot of hilarious content. Spamusement is a bunch of comics drawn based on those nonsensical spam subject lines. My favorite is Upgrade Your Brain with Brain Bullet.
