American Juggalo

My perverse fascination with the Juggalo continues. This short documentary is amazing. I think one quotation, in particular, sums it all up for me:

“We have alcohol and we have explosives. Let me show you how great we are.”

I’m not going to comment much more. I think the piece really speaks for itself, speaks volumes about juggalos, and speaks to the nature of the beast overall. But I do have a question: how many of the juggalos know the “woo woo” comes from this?

Which, of course, begs the more important question: is Bubb Rubb a juggalo?

8 Hours in Brooklyn

Holy shit. This is sick as hell, though I am not convinced the slip-n-slide on the concrete’s such a great idea.

More about the project.

All footage was shot within an 8 hour span in Brooklyn, NYC. Several of these shots will be used in part w/ a series of spots we are directing/producing which will be released sometime in the near future.

Awesome track too. It’s Skream’s “Where You Should Be” from Outside the Box.

Dock Ellis and the LSD No-No

Have you ever heard about how Dock Ellis threw a no-hitter while under the influence of LSD? You haven’t?! Well well well, enlighten yourself with this short animated film chronicling what might be one of the finest athletic achievements of all time.

I bring this to you today because I was inspired by a video made by my friend Matt where one of his fellow Gawker editors tries to recreate the feat in a video game. Spoiler alert: he doesn’t do it.

Joad Cressbeckler: Homosexuality A Necessity On Cold Mountaintops

I love Joad Cressbeckler. Let me provide you with a quotation exeplifying exactly why I love him.

You say it ain’t right for two old prospectors to tongue at each other’s peckers to keep ’em from droppin’ off in the frostbite?!

This video had me laughing until my cheeks hurt, especially the discussion of the differences in taste between cow brains and man brains and whether or not cows have minds. Genius. Who writes this shit? This is the best work The Onion does. So good every single time.

Game of Thrones trailer

Holy. Shit. This trailer makes me want to do three things.

  1. Reread Game of Thrones
  2. Get cable so I can have HBO
  3. Asplode

Of course, none of those will happen and I’ll probably end up watching the series sometime in 2012 on disc or streaming. Nevertheless I am very excited about this as it looks quite faithful to how I imagined the book. And Boromir as Eddard Stark? Kind of awesome, even though different than I pictured. Seriously, this thing is giving me such a geekboner I can hardly contain myself.

In the end, it’s making the wait for Dance With Dragons even more unbearable. PLEASE!!! PLEEEEEEAAASSSSEEEE!!!!!
