It sucks, you should watch it! Okay, more getting to know you, following up the previous movie CG. I am a connoisseur of bad film. I love it. My friends treat a "good" bad find as an event. We're looking for new ones. What's the best bad film you've ever seen? more inside
Sail to the Beanless Isles! But beware the Bean Pirates (arg!). And a couple more mp3 samples from comedy improv group Offramp.
iPod, annotated. For all the Monkeys who played the Blogstop games- come up with you own "i"- word. Other New Yorkers have used the Apple campaign for more pointed commentary. [via Gizmodo]
Othello. In 1833, Ira Aldridge became the first black actor to play Othello on the London stage. more inside
Japanese TV Ads from the 50s to the 80s. Pretty awesome. They are all from an interesting looking exhibit on Japanese beauty/consumerism. You've got to check out bottom middle, its awesome. [Real Video format.] Link via Click Opera (One small image on Click Opera is rather fuzzy NSFW. You can still look at the page and just scroll past it. Your boss won't see. I promise.)
UPDATE on Steve Kurtz & Critical Art Ensemble. The FBI, we now know, will seek to indict Steve Kurtz (and perhaps others) before a grand jury in Buffalo, NY on June 15 on charges related to "biological weapons."
Mouse-eating in Zambia. Includes recipes.
Talking presents! Such as, the condiment holder that screams, "Cheeseburger, cheeseburger, cheeseburger, ketchup, mustard, relish, get your fixin's here!"
Instant Viking? Monarch? Satyr? All you need are a nekkid man and some props to "appeal to the muse". (Possibly NSFW: involves mantit, bum, and a leopard-skin wrap.)
Coffin Cake. Also, Games Console Wedding Cakes. I don't know which is more disturbing.
"Did I ever told you about 'The Beatles'?" Well, if you want to trigger granpa a flashback or *cough* still like those lads' tunes, check out this 3D op-art Flash (big 7.7Mb sucker) from those demented Melon guys, who started their mastery with audiovisual demos that fit on an Amiga floppy, back in the days when the Beatles still were together, or something like that... With karaoke mode! And lots of colors rapidly flashing, so beware.
A collection of ideas that adults thought were true when they were children. This is a great site! Some truly hilarious anecdotes of childhood. So, monkeys, what are yours? Do tell.
Beautiful photographs of Afghanistan by Luke Powell. Why can't he get them published? [Thanks to Nathan at the Argus].
stavrosthewonderchicken needs help. One of my favorite MeFi characters is having a hard time getting money from Paypal donations. Does anyone have any advice on how to get this turned around? more inside
Finally: The Zippo-Cam. {Warning: Pointless Flash Intro... just hit "Skip"!} This is THE MUST-HAVE for Spies. Who smoke.
Undercover Air Marshalls don't really blend well. What's the point of having undercover air marshalls if Ray Charles can spot them from the back of coach? "Air marshals 'are not undercover like Serpico,' (Federal Air Marshall Service spokesman David Adams) added, referring to the legendary New York detective. 'The director refers to them as 'discreet.'"
Is a draft imminent?
Bremer threatens to veto Iraqis' choice of president I thought folks were supposed to be FREE to elect who they wanted...Can someone explain this imposed democracy thing? more inside
UN_FOLD Human ingenuity never ceases to amaze me. [WARNING: Large Quicktime]
The History of Toilet Paper. Let us pause to give thanks for the noble invention we take for granted, and recount the dark days in America's history known as "The Great Toilet Paper Shortage".
