Drunk Baby Trashes Bar

Trailer for the short film “Las Palmas” by Johannes Nyholm, due out later this year.

Whiskey the cat gets some Bustin!

Bustins for kitties!

Adrian Edmondson in a bank commercial

Not sure if this was the pre-Young-Ones inspiration for Vyvian, or a post-Young Ones advert capitalizing on the series. Either way it’s pretty funny.

How far is the moon from the earth?

Now you know.

A psychotic animation from Chel White about his writing process. Seems legit.

Tegan and Sarah – Walking with a Ghost

This is my favorite Tegan and Sarah song. This song is timeless. I am glad that these haircuts have gone out of vogue though.

Lyrics (short but sweet… why would you need more?):
No matter which way you go
No matter which way you stay
You’re out of my mind
Out of my mind
I was walking with a ghost
And I said please, please don’t insist
I was walking with a ghost
And I said please, please don’t insist

Deepest hole in the world?

These kids seem to think so, but i don’t think it will stay so deep if tourists keep coming by to throw rocks in it.

Looks like the crazy fuck did this all on his own without anyone else filming. Brrrr!

Music Tuesday: Bob Marley – Three Little Birds

Three Little Birds – Bob Marley

Corey and I picked up this album from Steady Sounds last Friday, because we’re expanding our record collection and Exodus has a song that Jonah knows from the bumps on Noggin. He loves this song and calls it the “’bout a fing” song.

Three Little Birds lyrics
“Don’t worry about a thing,
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right.
Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing,
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right!”

Rise up this mornin’,
Smiled with the risin’ sun,
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin’ sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin’, (“This is my message to you-ou-ou:”)

Singin’: “Don’t worry ’bout a thing,
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right.”
Singin’: “Don’t worry (don’t worry) ’bout a thing,
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right!”

Rise up this mornin’,
Smiled with the risin’ sun,
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
[| From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/b/bob-marley-lyrics/three-little-birds-lyrics.html |]
Singin’ sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true,
Sayin’, “This is my message to you-ou-ou:”

Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing, worry about a thing, oh!
Every little thing gonna be all right. Don’t worry!”
Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing” – I won’t worry!
“‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right.”

Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing,
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right” – I won’t worry!
Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing,
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right.”
Singin’: “Don’t worry about a thing, oh no!
‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right!

Googy!?!

Googy Ep.1 from mike manasewitsch on Vimeo.

An independent web series from Channel 101. This looks like a budget version of Pee Wee’s Playhouse and is the same surreal fun.

Global Village Construction Set

Global Village Construction Set in 2 Minutes from Open Source Ecology on Vimeo.

This looks awesome! Open-source generic pieces that can be built into useful items for performing farm and construction tasks on the cheap! Like giant erector sets.

Wakeboarding on Cranberries

Ok, the guy in the beginning seems like a douche, but he’s wakeboarding on cranberries.

How to be Alone:

In this age of constant contact, it’s important to remember how to be cool all by your lonesome. Here are some tips to get you into your shell.

Putting Faith in its Place

An incredible dissertation for why “Because I believe it!” Is not a valid argument for faith based arguments (especially RE: bigotry, violence, political weight etc). alone,

Holland 1945 – Neutral Milk Hotel

Such a raucous, shambly, happily tragic song. It gets me moving and moping at the same time.

Lyrics:
The only girl I’ve ever loved
Was born with roses in her eyes
But then they buried her alive
One evening, 1945
With just her sister at her side
And only weeks before the guns
All came and rained on everyone
Now she’s a little boy in Spain
Playing pianos filled with flames
On empty rings around the sun
All sing to say my dream has come

But now we must pick up every piece
Of the life we used to love
Just to keep ourselves
At least enough to carry on

And now we ride the circus wheel
With your dark brother wrapped in white
Says it was good to be alive
But now he rides a comet’s flame
And won’t be coming back again
The Earth looks better from a star
That’s right above from where you are
He didn’t mean to make you cry
With sparks that ring and bullets fly
On empty rings around your heart
The world just screams and falls apart

But now we must pick up every piece
Of the life we used to love
Just to keep ourselves
At least enough to carry on

And here’s where your mother sleeps
And here is the room where your brothers were born
Indentions in the sheets
Where their bodies once moved but don’t move anymore
And it’s so sad to see the world agree
That they’d rather see their faces fill with flies
All when I’d want to keep white roses in their eyes
