You buy brand name cereal right? But sometimes you can’t afford the full on brand, and well the off brand isn’t all that different…so long as the milk is still good right?
Well, how would you feel about watching the off brand version of a movie (hey going to the cinema is pretty pricey right?)
Okay maybe that analogy is crap. How about this instead:
I thought I was pretty hardcore for dressing up as Gizmo for Halloween, but I’ve never thought about recreating the entire movie (okay I kinda have, but there are laws and money issues, no?)
Well, in 1981, there were hree 12 year old friends, Chris Strompolos, Eric Zala and Jayson Lamb, who were so moved by a film they decided to recreate it. It took them seven years too…Check it out.
Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptaion
Maybe seven years from now, we’ll see an adaptation of the Crystal Skull.
Everyday I’m enjoying more of Chris Ware.
It’s no wonder everyone (you read the blogs, you know) is all about his animations for “This American Life.”
I was showing this video to my BF.
Me, “Check this out. This could easily be something with us.”
Him. “Oh you’re saying I have a fat blue butt?”
Me, “Just watch.”
Ah Life…The American Dream.
If you enjoyed that one, you’ll probably like THIS one too.
Time to kick off the festivities to all that is great around us.
Let’s give praise.
Go on, give it a spin!

There’s an old saying that nothing ever beats an original, but then you have powerful arguments like: The God Father II, Rocky II, Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo, and Empire Strikes Back (yeah not technically a sequel sequel), and well you have to shut up because they’re GREAT sequels.
If the same kind of face shutting arguments is to be made for music, then all you have to do is set headphones/speakers onto “Hey! (The Sequel)” by Junk Science with The Boys and Girls Club.
The song is AMAZING.
If you can imagine a song being a bad ass Karate master, “Hey!” would sweep more than the Karate Kid 2′s leg. It would give it the choice of life or death, honk Daniel Son’s nose and send Peter Cetera crying all the way home in a glory of love.
Yeah, I went there cause it’s that awesome.
If you play the “Hey!” (or any of Junk Science and The Boys and Girls Club albums)over and over and over and over again, it’ll be your best weekend times their sequels to infinity.
This weekend is already kicking off so you better get on it.
And you can get it HERE.
Junk Science with The Boys and Girls Club.
The Boys and Girls Club formed in the summer of 2002 as a collaborative effort between Scott (Scott Thorough, Nuclear Family) and Mike (Short Stories). They like rap, books and unspoken truths. Watch out.

Take Me Back
For the last six weeks I’ve been silently suffering and enjoying a little program on Vimeo called “Take Me back.” It’s an original web series by a couple of guys from Montreal named Joe & Seth.
Without giving away too much I can tell you the show has: nerds, time travel, Queen and the segments are minutes long….So, just as you’re getting somewhere, BOOM it stops and you have to wait another week for the continuation.
Of course, if this is the first time you’ve ever heard about the show, you’re only going to suffer about half my suffering (there’s 6 episodes out for you to watch RIGHT NOW), since there are now only 4 episodes left.
Eh, and maybe after the whole thing, you’ll want to be taken back.
Oh well, Have a look and join me for the next few weeks of time travel
SM and Rich are my fave bloggers (and maybe people, people I will tragically never get to hang or meet with in real life), but WINSTON…WINSTON makes the complete holy blogging trinity of love complete and explosive.
It wasn’t so much the content of video (which if you’ve haven’t checked out Pot Psychology, is something to behold–so you better get to it quick!), but just that moment of Winston in some glasses!
He’s too cute. It hurts. It made my heart EXPLODE.
This is a screen capture off of a great Jezebel feature called Pot Psychology.
The firs 31some seconds are just…
Just, trust me. Uufff just heart exploding adorableness. Just when I think Winston can’t get anymore awesome…he goes and blows me away.
The rest of the stuff after Winston’s participation…eh can we say NSFW? Still worth a watch if you’re up for some wisdom and NC-17ness.
God I love Winston!
