Luke’s Change

A well done parody of the 9-11 conspiracy video Loose Change, claiming that the destruction of the original Death Star was an inside job. I’d believe it!

All the alternate endings to the Animaniacs theme

Jonah has discovered the Animaniacs. I never watched it regularly but Corey was a big fan. Here are the variant from the theme song.

Totaka’s Song

A video explaining a secret Easter Egg tune hidden in a bunch of Nintendo games. Have you ever heard it?

Soulja Boy’s got the Munchies

Soulja Boy has got the munchies and he’s not afraid to show you how he’s gonna deal with it. I like that he’s bought one of everything from the local 7-11, including some Snackwells!

Electric Fence Experiment ends as expected

The title says it all…

The Cardigans – Hanging Around

I’ve been having 90s flashback danceparty recently and dug into some old Cardigans. I saw them in D.C. back in the day and they rock the hell out. This video was inspired by Roman Polanski’s Repulsion. It’s awesome!

((Sounder)) – Daily I will Calculate the Distance

This song came up on my Pandora, and I thought I’d heard it before, but I couldn’t recall where and then I couldn’t find anything about this band on Wikipedia or anything. I found a Bandcamp page with these tags and that is all I know: alternative, ambient, classic rock, folk, indie, post-punk, Austin.

Good stuff. I’d like to hear more if I can dig it up.

Meteor over Russia

Looks like some pieces and parts from that “near miss” are getting a little close. Eeesh!

10 more bets you can’t lose

That is unless you count getting punched in the face losing. :(

Projecting video on a snow storm

Amazing and beautiful (despite the fact that it’s video from that new pile The Lorax)

A talking piano

Kind of… but it’s pretty close and the voice is sort of spooky. I would use this in a sound project for “alien translation” or “spooky demon voice”

Vending Machine FAIL

These guys thought they had it all figured out… nope!

Deadmau5 playing with a circuit bent Speak N Spell

It’s weird to see him without his helmet on. Also, I really want to learn how to circuit bend things. I’ve got a stock pile of potentially annoying electronics to tamper with. Now to learn to solder.

Joel McHale and Jimmy Fallon play Egg Russian Roulette

This looks like a lot of fun. Who wants to play?

James Taylor glitch-rock!

Here’s an accidental glitch-rock version of America the Beautiful by James Taylor at the inauguration.

Shugo Tokumaru – “Katachi”

That’s a lot of die-cut foam core. Holy Cow!

Amazing Sleight Of Hand Magician Yann Frisch

Corey has been reading a book about the science behind sleight of hand and this guy is amazing at it. Our brains are so easily fooled.

Ween – Object

A creepy little ditty by Ween made creepier with a fan-video featuring movie baddies.

Lyrics after the cut

You’re just an object to me.
I’d like to get to know you better.
Paste you across, my body, you’re just an object to me.
You’re just a piece of meat.
And I am a butcher.
I love you better, love you forever, you’re just an object to me.
Why, sit in the shade?
Drink what we made from a lover’s cup. Dreams don’t always come, when you fall asleep, you’re just an object to me.
I’m gonna do something wrong.
No bodies gonna like it.
But I’ve got my pride, and my time isn’t free, you’re just an object to me.
You’re just an object to me.
I feel a little better.
They found your sweater.
You’re just an object to me.
