Landscapes of Pork

Oct 04

Wow! Bacon World. I’m stunned by these photographs by London photographer Carl Warner. It’s not unlike the recent “Beef. It’s What’s for Dinner” campaign here in the States. But, much better craftsmanship and much more surreal (and disgusting). I gotta give props to the artistic value of these amazing photos, but all that raw pork and cold cuts kinda grosses me out.

Thanks for the link @johnbriggsdesign!

Apache, baby!

Jul 31

This is for real. I repeat. This video is for real.

Tommy Seebach Mortensen was a Danish singer, composer, and producer from Copenhagen (circa 1979). I was speechless the first time I saw this video. My first thought was,”Wow, is THAT guy white.” Those pumping hips are absolutely terrifying. Those hips actually do lie…

In doing some research, I stumbled across some interesting stuff. Like any interesting internet meme, spoofs are pervasive. The original video is priceless, but following are some of my favorite spoof videos.

Don’t miss these beauties:

Total Eclispe of the Heart. Literally.

Jul 10

In my opinion the best-ever cover of Bonnie Taylor’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart” is by the world’s leading kitchen appliance rock group, Hurra Torpedo. Certainly an enthralling and inspired performance.

Dear dude-with-sledgehammer: Seriously though, pull your pants up.

BUT, my life was altered forever when friends Wendie Green & Mrs. Husband shared the unbelievable “Literal Eclipse of the Heart” video. Very well-produced jackassery. And, absolutely high-larious. Do not miss this video!

A few other “literal” videos:

Cold War Kids

If you dig Cold War Kids, then check out this interactive version of “I’ve Seen Enough.” It’s pretty slick, you can change tracks to remix your own version of the song. You can also mute band members and isolate tracks. Check it out over at MtvMusic.com.

Awkward Family Photos

May 21

Wow. I guess we’ve all been there. The times when a corky family member decides on matching sweaters, unnatural poses, or just plain bad photography.The captions and copy writing on AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com are amazing. Take “The Lenscrafters” for example: that tyke is blind as a bat!

Will You Be Here Tomorrow?

Apr 16

This is by far the most hilarious workplace safety videos known to man! I guess scare tactics are effective, if humor is the intent. Unbelievable.

Thru You

Mar 28

Kutiman mixes unrelated YouTube video clips edited together to make cohesive tracks that will funk you up.  I’m digging “The Mother of All Funk Chords” and “Babylon Band.” Check it out on Thru-you.com (and more of Kutiman’s work on MySpace).

On My iPod: Mr. Scruff, “Ninja Tuna”

Mar 21

I’m psyched about the newest Mr. Scruff album, “Ninja Tuna.” As always expected with Mr. Scruff, this funky/jazzy album will definitely get your foot tapping. I’m especially digging the video (featuring vocalist Alice Russell) for “The Music Takes Me Up.”

It’s Business Time

Mar 20

As a huge Flight of the Conchords fan, I never get tired of “Business Time.” Funny stuff from those hilarious Kiwis. Oh, and don’t miss “You’re So Beautiful.”

This Rollercoaster is Sick!

Mar 14

All I have to say is “ewwwwwwwww.” Seriously, this photo wins the “Gnarly Photo of the Year” award. Oh, the poor guy in the second row — he’s about to get the worst of it (and a mouthful). The photo is tagged as “Goliath,” which must be the Goliath at Six Flags. Here’s a video of the coaster. Makes me want to hurl…
