Stuff, Stuff, and More Stuff 

I did a GooglImage search for "stuff" and found this guy stuffing balloons in his pants. Smile, dude! You're famous now.

This week's SynCast also features people who are on their way to being famous -- specifically, two standup comedians I've recently come to love:
  • Azhar Usman, the founder of the "Allah Made Me Funny" Comedy Tour. We saw him recently in Madison and he did indeed kill. His CD isn't as superb as the stuff he did here, but he's clearly got skills.

  • Eugene Mirman, a really weird and funny guy. I found his CD used and love it. He's got a weird singing kid on his website.
Let's Clean Out the Bookmarks

I've been saving stuff for months. I'm ready to dump them. Most of it comes from MonkeyFilter. Ready? Wrote a song about it. Wanna hear it? Here goes..

Need a remedy to all the online friend-making sites? Try Isolatr!

Check out the BarnCam! Also peep the GainesvilleCam, with time-elapsed video clips!

The guy who invented the Apple logo never got a dime. You suck, Apple!

These abstract caricatures are pretty cool.

Choose Hoth for the 2014 Olympics!

Why on Earth do I have NASCAR Meats bookmarked?

Did I post the Cyborg Name Decoder already? It's been so long..

Okay, I think that's it. I suppose I should go grade some papers or something.


Homicidal is twisted and violent, but well made.

Beat It 

Eek. I knew this picture would come back to haunt me someday. There goes any possible political career I might have wished for. (Thanks a lot, Mark!)

Well, to make up for it, please to enjoy this week's SynCast. We've got all sorts of fun stuff -- from throbbing gabber techno to throbbing non-gabber techno. Special thanks to Audio Atrocities™ for the interstitials.

Go See It

You really ought to check out Why We Fight, a superb new film about the nature of US military operations overseas. Transcending the single-administration blinders of F911, it centers on Eisenhower's farewell address, where he famously urged us to be aware of the military-industrial complex. Then it explores how well we've heeded the warning.

It features interviews with many different folks from many walks of life (including Eisenhower's son; a 20-year military analyst who worked for the Department of Special Plans; and a NYC cop whose son died in 9/11), and really succeeds at dissecting the issue in an appropriately complex way.


Why not watch the video for Rockit? Because it's hideous and creepy and it'll give you nightmares, that's why! Freaky stuff!

You know, it's one thing for a band to sell its song to a moron ad -- "like a turd in my drink," to quote a wise man -- but it's quite another to allow them to change the lyrics, forever tainting your work with those atrocious new words.

Anyway, on a completely different topic: We have a vidcast! Yes, I've atoned for my two-week SynCast absence by creating a 28-minute video cornucopia. We've got clips from:
  • Morcheeba
  • Autechre
  • Mad TV
  • The Simpsons
  • Coldcut
  • Saturday Night Live
  • and more!
So pop up some corn and brew you some gingered ale. It's gonna be a rockin' time! This week's show is brought to you by new Kraft Crumbles. They're so good, they're.. well, they're really, really good. So good they suck.



Orbox B is way fun.

Go Away 

I'm on spring break. You get a show next week if you're lucky.


Invisible Quest II is probably pretty dumb. The first one certainly was.

Today I'm listening to: Nothing!

DLF Is Gonna Rock Ya! 

Dude, you have got to check out today's edition of Democracy Now! I don't know who that babe is they've got analyzing corporate video news releases, but she is a total hottie. She's got her facts straight, she can think quick on her feet, and she even got an FCC commissioner to admit he was impressed by the work she was doing. And plus she's a killer hot babe.

I know it's a little misogynist of me to focus on her looks, but I mean, damn! Her eyes, her hair, her bod -- what a dynamite dame! And with such impressive smarts to boot. Be still, my heart. I think I'm in love.

(NPR also did a story, but they gave most of their time to VNR shills.)


Why not play around with the Super Mario Soundboard? Where was this when I was doing the Video Game Confessions post?
