Awesome Old Skool jam.

I know I said I wasn't going to post anymore music videos for awhile, but it is almost 2 in the morning and I am feeling inexplicably funky.

I can't say that I am a Stevie Wonder fan, per se. I mean, I recognize the fact that Stevie Wonder is something of a legend, but that doesn't mean that he hasn't put out some horrible, horrible music. Still, "Superstition" is about as fly a song as there is. When people ask me why I don't like modern R&B, I can point to this song and say "Because it is nowhere near as good as this." and be totally, unequivocably correct. No one in today's R&B scene can make a song better than this. No one. Not the funk, not the groove, not the voice. I am certain that there are a few modern singers who are able to sing along with it perfectly, but no one can make this song better or cooler, which is possibly the highest compliment I can think of for a song. That isn't to say that something cool doesn't come out once in awhile these days, but for the most part, it seems that R&B has been relegated to quasi-romantics who try to look street singing scales about getting laid. Obviously, I think that sucks, and I stand by that opinion.

Anyway, close your eyes and kick some mad flava in ya ear, my babies.

Evidently shark fin soup is really, really good.

I have eaten a lot of weird stuff in my day, but I have to confess that I have never eaten shark fin soup. After watching this video, I feel like maybe I have been missing out on something.

Also, this is why I am single.

He haz all ur gunpowderz.

I actually pulled this post off a little failed blog experiment that I did a while back, and I realized that it is still pretty funny. No rednecks were permanently harmed in the making of this video.

As I said in that post, and as I will say in this post, blowing stuff up is awesome. Unless you are a terrorist or the Unabomber, in which case you are teh suxxorz. So, restated less crazily, recreational demolition with no criminal malice intended or delivered is awesome. Anyhoo, what is even better than blowing stuff up personally is watching others blow stuff up. Particularly when they experience unintended consequences.

What makes this awesome is how the dude had the common decency to apologize for almost killing himself. I mean, this would be awesome regardless, but the addition of a courteous, self-effacing apology just puts it over the top. Over the top to TWWoT territory where it belongs, my babies.


Finding comedy gold is effortless if you have my moron brain calling the shots...

Incidentally, I feel I have proved my point about the upcoming animal wars beyond argument.

I listened, and heard.

To my loyal reader Kat, you wanted monkey/bear action, you got monkey/bear action.

Booyah. Also, here is a picture of a kitten. Enjoy.

New Link

Also, I added a new link to DL Knives. If you enjoy custom knives, and I know I do, this guy does some very good work for a very reasonable price. Having talked with him here and there on the gun forum I frequent, I can also say that he is a pretty nice guy.

That is all.

Star Trek.

Some of you may vaguely remember that a long time ago I wrote a blog in which I defended the average trekky. I have nothing against Trekkies. You want to dress up and learn a made up language in your spare time (of which, apparently, you have plenty.), what do I care? It's not like you are out slinging crack or bathing in puppy blood or something.

With that being said, Trekkies have an annoying habit of going way overboard. Take, for example, this video. This is a review of a movie that isn't even going to release for another month and a half, and will almost surely do a bazillion dollars worth of business world wide. This guy acknowledges that, but by Romulus, he found something that for him is a major issue. Observe:

Really? In a movie that features a molecular transportation device, aliens and, you know, intergalactic starships, you are angry because the San Francisco of the 24th century appears to be too big? Really? To prove your point, you show a picture of San Francisco 100 years ago, a time when buildings were made entirely with hand tools and people still thought of automobiles as something handcrafted by Satan? Dude, you can't compare the 24th century to the 19th. I mean, there is a big difference between a hammer and nails and a neutron hammer and laser nails, let alone the massive army of constructobots that I assume are responsible for all construction and city planning.

Ignoring that flaw in your logic, can I also point out that you are the type of nerd that ruins things for other nerds? Look, there are potentially thousands of Trekkies out there that would have watched this movie with complete satisfaction (other than wondering why James Tiberius Kirk looks like one of the Twilight Vampires), and now, they are all going to stomp out the theater upon viewing a potentially disproportional future city by the bay.

Thank you, on behalf of them, from me, jerk.

Comic Books: Rad or Sad?

So, I really like comic books. Honestly, I probably like them too much considering that I have often (as recently as all the time) contemplated what the ultimate set of superpowers for me would be. In fact, they say the average dude thinks about getting they swerve on something like every 10 seconds. I think about getting freakadelic about every 15 seconds, but I consider the relative merits of flight over underwater breathing every 6 seconds. Clearly, I have issues.

Now, with all that being said, one line that I won't cross is cosplay. Cosplay, if you aren't nerdily aware is defined by Wikipedia thusly: "Cosplay, short for "costume play",[1] is a type of performance art whose participants outfit themselves, with often-elaborate costumes and accessories, as a specific character". That sounds like a sure recipe for lonely nights spent in your moms basement playing D&D and wondering which one of your friends is going to see boobies before they turn 40, right?

Not so, friends. As it turns out, there are plenty of hot chicks that dress up in comic book clothes and go out in public. I suppose the jury is still out on whether or not they actually associate with dudes whose only apparent power is to avoid sunlight and cultivate acne, but it kind of makes sense there would have to be at least a little common ground, right? Well, whatever the case is, I say godspeed, Cosplaya. You couldn't get me out of the house in costume for love or money, but if that's what rings your bell, I say more power to you. Don't believe me? Take a look for yourself. I have kindly posted some pics for your research purposes:

Quick note: There are roughly 15 trillion pictures of chicks dressed up as Princess Leia. Also, the first chick is dressed as Jean Grey when she was first possessed by The Phoenix. Duh.

Ladies Home Defense Channel.

Everyone knows I am exceedingly pro-gun, and part of that is because I believe strongly in guns as a means of self-defense. This video illustrates what happens when a woman gives herself the tools and the means to defend herself. Don't be a victim, ladies.

So, this is going to be my last music-related post for good long while. It's fun posting music, but it seems like that is all I am doing. Frankly, I am thinking of making a music only blog in which I post a video or two a week of different stuff I like. Whatever.

This post is simple: Watch the video and consider it from different perspectives. Post your opinion. I don't care if you think it sucks or rules, as much as I am just curious to see the reaction. Personally, if I look at it as a tribute to Johnny Cash that was done for fun, I kind of like it. Not love it, just like it. If I look at it any other way, it is pretty horrible. Watching the video, I get the distinct impression that Everlast did this song because he likes Johnny Cash, wanted to do something in tribute, and decided to have some fun with it instead of being all serious and tributey about it.

Also, notice the girl at 1:34. She totally has a "What the hell is going on here" look about her that makes me laugh.

More metal.

In what has apparently become a spirit-quest for me, I have found yet another video of something not inherently metal mixed with real metal. I have no idea who this band is, and from the little I can hear, they kind of blow, but it is pretty funny regardless....
