You might have noticed that the frequency of my posts has dropped over the past few months. Who would have thought that quitting my job and going to grad school would actually lead to less time available for patrolling the interwebs for stupid stuff. For the next while I’ll just be posting stuff I find to Twitter/Facebook. If you want to follow me on Twitter I’m @bpressman
Oh mashups, will I ever tire of you? If this had been the actual theme to the movie, I imagine they would have had to cast different actors who were maybe less funny but more badass. Basically pick 4 dudes from the Expendables and then the casting would have been more appropriate.
This delightfully absurd series of commercials from Egypt proves that Pandas are scary. I’m not sure why they make cheese, but I don’t want to question them for fear of the repercussions.
It is pretty cool that classical conditioning works so easily, and seeing it expressed in such a bro-tastic way is great. On a completely different plane is this awesome mashup of The Big Lebowski and The Matrix – two defining movies of my late high school experience. I wonder who was less sure of his surrounding world Neo or The Dude.
It can be frustrating to meet an attractive member of the opposite sex just to find out they are taken. It isn’t that person’s fault, but it would be nice if people who are in serious relationships, but not at the ring stage, found a way to identify themselves and save the rest of us some trouble. I can certainly understand the star of this video’s frustration, though I can’t really condone his actions.

MTV’s Undressed was a show I watched solely because at least twice an episode a woman ended up in her underwear, and the whole purpose of the show was essentially PG-13 porn. If you never saw the show, watch this video and you’ll see all you need to know. While still trying to make it in Hollywood Christina Hendricks had a turn on the show but unfortunately for posterity she did not strip down.
Happy Friday! Enjoy a nice mashup of some recent internet memes.
Hmmm… embedding is having some issues link is here.
Though the 90s are pretty forgettable for many reasons and provided the worst fashion decade of the century, good stuff still happened. Maybe it is because I grew up in the 90s, but the SNL actors of that period were some of the greats. Phil Hartman and Chris Farley were standouts at the time and if they hadn’t been lost to us might still be making good works now. Chris Farley’s insanity is on good display in this old clip from some random CNBC show. It also shows the difference between cable talk TV then and now.
The 90s was also the decade where electronic dance music went mainstream. My first club experience was a launch party for the game Wipeout 3. That game series was a ridiculously hard racing game that featured many of the great DJs of the era. Some German dude recreated the game in an awesome manor:
