I cannot believe the amount of work that must have gone into the making of this video. You may have to click the "keep reading" to see it. No lip-synching, either. What's really weird is that as I was posting this, U2's version came up on the 'pod. Karma, man.
And then there is this video, which I saw last night linked from SOMEwhere--but don't remember where. Anyway, I am more jealous of this guy than just about anyone ever. Not for his dancing ability, but for being able to go to all of these places. Please go watch the video. Where the Hell is Matt?
This is, without the slightest shadow of a doubt, the most surreal video I have ever seen. Shiny glowing dead people coming out of the ocean to wake you up. And I complain about the alarm clock???? I may never buy Folger's again. If the video won't play in the window, here's the link: Happy Mornings "Wake up, you sleepyhead! You can sleep when you are dead!" Great! Now I've got *that* stuck in my head!
We truly are at the the end of history. I have just seen a video of Diamond Dave doing....banjos... It still hurts. David Lee Roth Performs Bluegrass Style! - Peter's Reviews
David Lee Roth was on the Tonight Show last night promoting the new Bluegrass Tribute to Van Halen CD that just came out called "Strummin' With the Devil".Oh, dear lord, is that a combover?????????
CNN.com - BBC interviews wrong man - May 15, 2006
In a reaction story to the verdict that is now circulating widely on the Internet, consumer affairs correspondent Karen Bowerman welcomed who the BBC thought was computer expert Guy Kewney. As Bowerman introduced him, there's a moment when the still unidentified driver realized the mistake. He scrunched his face into a grimace, and in panic tried to open his mouth as if to explain. "Were you surprised by this verdict today?" Bowerman asked. "I'm very surprised to see the verdict come on me because I was not expecting that," he said in a heavy French accent, blinking in the studio lights. "When I came, they told me something else." Growing more confident, he gamely went on to deliver his opinion on the future of music downloads following the landmark verdict.Hilarious story. I wonder if the video is available on youtube yet?
I just know I am going to screw up the explanation of this, but here goes: There's this Dutch guy who teaches himself to sing LedZep's "Stairway to Heaven" backwards phonetically. This is the link to that video on YouTube. Now, for the confusing part. This link leads to the same video, played backwards so that the song comes out forwards. I just know I pasted those links in bass-ackwards, but oh well...go watch..it's hilarious.
Saw this on the evening news last night--kinda makes whiny Olympians and pro athletes look pretty bad. Make sure you watch the video--those were some good shots! CBS News | Autistic Teen's Hoop Dreams Come True | February 24, 2006 17:04:52
(CBS) It was the stuff of Hollywood, but it was real. Senior Jason McElwain had been the manager of the varsity basketball team of Greece Athena High School in Rochester, N.Y. McElwain, who's autistic, was added to the roster by coach Jim Johnson so he could be given a jersey and get to sit on the bench in the team's last game of the year. Johnson hoped the situation would even enable him to get McElwain onto the floor a little playing time. He got the chance, with Greece Athena up by double-digits with four minutes go to. And, in his first action of the year, McElwain missed his first two shots, but then sank six three-pointers and another shot (video), for a total of 20 points in three minutes.UPDATE: video available here
Blogcritics.org: The Who: Tommy & Quadrophenia Live To Be Released Nov. 8th
On November 8th 2005 Rhino Home Video will be releasing the treat to end all treats for fans of the rock band The Who. For the first time ever both of their seminal rock operas Tommy and Quadrophenia will be available in one package. The Who: Tommy And Quadrophenia Live With Special Guests is a three-disc, box set DVD culled from live concerts given by the Who. The first disc of the set is a live recording of Tommy that was done in 1989 at the Universal Amphitheatre in Las Angeles. Helping to make this performance all the more special is the fact that some friends of theirs dropped by to help out with gig. Elton John, Phil Collins, Billy Idol, Patti LaBelle, and Steve Winwood all contribute their talents to making this performance even more memorable.I saw the Who on their 1989 tour--which at the time, looked to be their last tour. I saw them at Alpine Valley Theatre ( yes, Stevie Ray's crash site) and that was the day I understood the Beatles shrieking from the early 60's. For two incredible hours, I stood and sang and yelled my head off along with Roger and the boys. I couldn't talk for days. It was the greatest concert experience of my life to hear the Who perform Tommy. 'Nuff said.
