These are a few of my favorite things

When you are poor, you mix your questionable whiskey with Tang. Fuck yeah.

I've recently resurrected my old YouTube obsession and will now be subjecting the rest of you to my recent finds, whether you've been subjected before or not. The internet is a many-splendored thing.

Every person who has entered my home this week, with the exception of the bi-annual city inspectors, has seen this video. You see, somewhere out there is a man who one day decided to procure himself one of those old, uncanny valley-style terrifying animatronic bands from Showbiz Pizza/Chuck E Cheese. Of course, after that the only reasonable course of action is to set the entire thing up in your house and program them to sing Usher songs. Somehow, the end result is pure magic.

My sister got me the first season of Flight of the Conchords for Christmas this year and now I have even more reasons to love her. This is currently my favorite love song of all time.

I stopped playing flute when I was 14 or so, due to never practicing, performance anxiety, and generally hating junior high band. Now, many many years too late, I see someone making it totally freaking awesome. Damn.

It should come as a shock to no-one that I've been a huge fan of Hedwig and the Angry Inch for quite some time now and after years of careful deliberation, I am now 90% sure that this is my favorite non-musical part of the movie. There is a certain beauty that comes from being completely absorbed into an amazing piece of music that Hedwig captures here more eloquently that I ever could. Also, that little kid can rock the fuck out.

Yes indeed I did, it was at the bar all along, I just had to wait until they opened later that night. It's a wee bit scratched, but otherwise just fine and dandy.

The showbiz pizza vid came to me via VGCats. It is quite glorious.

Also, you and Josh should have a funny picture showdown. I think he would enjoy that :D

Hee hee, that would be awesome. My 34 folder alone is 56.3 MB, all neatly sorted, Josh needs to BRING IT.

. . . I think I have a problem.
