Bizkit the Sleepwalking Dog

Don’t feel foolish, Bizkit. I’ve had that same dream, and the same reaction.


The greatest 18 seconds of video in the history of humankind

February 24, 2009

This is why the Internet was invented:

It helps to be of a certain age to appreciate this clip. You couldn’t ask for a better representative of Eric Carmen’s overwrought anthem from the mid-1970s than this angst-ridden elf.

Steve Martin and his magic pants

October 28, 2008

Steve Martin is scheduled to be on The Daily Show tonight, which is just the hook I need to post this classic clip of Steve performing a magic act — through his pants! — on The Tonight Show. Pretty sure this is from 1992, which was Johnny Carson’s final year as host of Tonight.

Frankie and Chub in “Mac vs. PC”

Coming soon: Another Frankie and Chub adventure

September 25, 2008

A second Frankie and Chub animated cartoon short is in production! Frankie and Chub, you ask? They’re the wiener-like characters featured in “Frankie Loves Tina Fey,” which can be viewed in my previous post and on YouTube.

I can answer a few questions about the upcoming Frankie and Chub video:

Will the production values be just as crappy?
Probably. But on a more ambitious scale.

Will Frankie’s obsession with Tina Fey be addressed?
Most likely, unless he’s moved on to Sarah Palin.

Will Tina Yothers make another cameo appearance?
 Yes, but you’ll have to wear the special 3-D glasses to see her.

Will there be slapping?
There will be slapping. (That would make a great title for a Daniel Day-Lewis film, wouldn’t it?)
