Beaver Huntin' 2009

I was gonna write something pithy but forget it, here’s a video that you should see:

Is that kid in “If You Got It, Flaunt It” his son? Is it weirder if it’s his son or just some random kid? Why is he a caveman? Do they get lots of beavers? Or have anything to do with any of his songs? And then he’s singing about space which is the opposite of cavemen and finally gets to his Uranus joke, goddamn I’m gonna go lie down.

Seriously, Fuck Twitter

Thanks for the tip, Mike.


Tuesday night’s Memefactory will be geekishly awesome (@3rd Ward this Tuesday March 24, 7 – 10 p.m.):

What do you get when you combine a lecture, vaudeville and Double Dare? Memefactory! Three gentlemen with five computers and three projectors take the audience on a fast-paced, whirlwind tour of every major Internet meme, famous piece of Internet media and YouTube footage imaginable. The modus is not depth, but breadth, and constant audience participation is required. Over the course of the evening, the audience will produce an entry for every internet phenomenon possible, including but not limited to: LOLCats, Bouncing GIFs, Me Singing [blank], Reaction Videos, Folk Covers of Hip Hop Classics, FAILs, Redubbed music videos, and more. Some will become famous like Boxxy, most will drink beers and a brave few will be nude.

3rd Ward wants the best of your erotic cell phone art – that’s texts, videos and photos – for an upcoming show “with a huge opening reception” called Sex Cells! The best submissions might be published in their quarterly and win $500, enough, Gothamist notes, “to buy a mediocre SLR for a future in less pixelated porn.” You’ve got until April 22nd to send them in, just make sure everyone involved in 18 and not doing anything too illegal. But what do I know, maybe they’ll be into that. For more info, visit

Hey Paul Krugman (A song, A plea)

Feel Better About Yourself

The act of people failing at things will never be not funny. Fail humor is timeless and universal, transcending cohorts and cross-cultural boundaries to unite humanity in a single lol. I mean, even the most basic human behaviors like having sex and eating are done way differently around the world, but it is pretty much as instinctive as breathing to lol at the misfortune of others.
That’s why I get excited when new sites emerge to attract the sacrificial virgins of Internet humor. This one is especially good: an interactive site called FMyLife — fuck it! — allows users to recount those rock-bottom moments when everything goes wrong in a way that is devastating to them, hilarious to onlookers. Below every bag-over-face confession is the opportunity for readers to weigh in on whether they sympathize (“yes, your life is f*****”) or take sadistic pleasure in reading about the dumbassery that brought it all on (“you deserved that one”). There’s a lot of input from awkward teenagers but regardless, every tale is a glorious /facepalm. Come on, we’ve all been there.
