So the wife and I got into a lengthy discussion the other day about the time paradoxes in the first Back to the Future (not II or III) and we devised a theory to satisfy the time loop paradox at the end. it goes a little something like this: In the original movie, Marty McLoser watches Doc Brown die at the hands of the Libyans at the Twin Pine Mall. He goes back in time, disrupts and reconciles his parents and shoots “Back to the Future!” during the lighting strike at the clock tower. He arrives 10 minutes early to save Doc (who refused to read the note waring him about his untimely demise) and watches as his previous self zips to the past.
we are mistaken to think that the Marty that Marty McLoser sees heading back to break up his parents is the original Marty McLoser. It’s not. Things have already changed due to Marty McLoser’s meddling (as evidenced by the Lone Pine mall sign) and the second Marty is the progeny the “successful and rich” Lorraine and George McFly (or Marty McRich as we began calling him). Why would Marty McRich be hanging out with Doc Brown? Our theory goes that: Doc Brown sought out Marty McRich because he knew there was danger of a time paradox. Doc read the note that Marty McLoser gave him and knew McLoser was heading back to the future so Doc had no choice but to sabotage the second delorean and kill Marty McRich (who he never liked much anyway) thus stopping a dangerous time loop paradox from happening.
A tiny house! 9′x9′x9′ i want to park one of these on the edge of a clearing in the middle of nowhere and hide out and write.
The awesome engineering behind an ant colony. There’s an incredible Radiolab episode about “Emergence” that has a fascinating segment about ants and how the hive mind decides what to do. I also think it’s interesting that ants – as a super organism – outweigh any other species on earth. That did not stop me from bombing the fuck out of the giant pile of ants in my driveway with Borax however.
Kitten vs Scary thing
oh the power of a good soundtrack
Foolish people taste test all of Michaelangelo’s TMNT pizza recipies
Lot of drunken cursing by the end of this and some rescinding of Michaelangelo as their favorite turtle.
This seems relevant to some people I know. I can’t decide if I like this guy’s particular brand of douchbag comedy. he’s like the funniest down-on-his-luck, dude-brah ad salesman you get suckered into going to happy hour with. A cross between Rodney Dangerfield and Dane Cook. Still, I think this message might apply to some people I know.
I kept seeing people saying “put a bird on it” and had to look it up to see what it was from. Fred Armisen’s Portlandia apparently.
Jay Pharoah does 50 impressions
The new guy from Saturday Night Live in what was probably part of his audition tape. Good stuff.
Speaking of Impressions
This is a damned good Nic Cage impression by Rob Magnotti.
U Smile slowed down
I know this is old, but i relistened and love it all over again. Justin Beiber’s U Smile slowed down 800% turns into a Sigur Ros ballad!
Conan plays life-sized Angry Birds
Balloon pigs hidden under IKEA furniture + a giant sling shot. This must have been a fun day at work for the production department. Unfortunately you have to sit through 30 seconds of George Lopez first
