This Girl Would Like to Know Why We Have Leap Year
February 29, 2012

This girl is a veritable fountain stupid of questions and salty language, so pinkies out and headphones up!

HAHAHAHAHA, YES! Clearly the internet has given us the perfect leap year gift (a very, very gross girl with a very, very gross vlog post about the grave social injustice that is leap year), so thank you, Internet.  It’s not every day you get a reason to wish the Hunger Games were real. Apparently it’s only once ever four years!

Princess Peach and Super Mario Bros. Parodied Lana Del Rey’s “Video Games”!
February 24, 2012

Mamma mia! It’s a YouTube video of nostalgia-fetishizing lip-plumper enthusiast Lana Del Rey’s “Video Games” in which Princess Peach yearns to get out of her not-so-super Mario marriage and give Luigi a taste of her crumb cobbler. Sure, it may not be Lana Del Rey’s “Hunger Games”, nor is it The Young Professionals’s discotheque-fabu “Video Games” cover, but this is still a rather clever, satisfyingly meta parody where Princess Peach works a pair of Lana Del Lips like she’s got a case of Lindsay Lohan’s Lady Trouty Mouth. I believe there are but two words for such a Nobody Puts Baby in a Horner gold-star worthy nerd thing:

Awkward Kristin, the Awkward Best
February 24, 2012

Obviously this viral video is more “a little corner of the internet where the internet is very internet” than “a little corner of the internet where camp is queen.” It’s an auto-tuned cat lady freak out remix or a gangsta using his words (poorly) instead of a “tons-of-f*cking sequins” freak out remix or a suburban girl gangsta drag act using her words (poorly).  Still, this video’s an utter delight in every way, so why not post it?

Besides, do you tell a whore to stop burning while she dances? No. Do you tell a ballerina to stop scissoring with her crazy for the sake of perfection? No. Do you tell a random girl making copies to stop giving us so much Oh-f*ck! FACE when she realizes she’s on a live broadcast?

Purity Bear Is Watching, Y’all
February 15, 2012

What? Wait. What?!? I mean, if you haven’t met Purity Bear before, please do treat yourself by watching it here. All done? Good. Now, if I may reiterate: WHAT?!?!?

Doesn’t their mutual awkwardness indicate they’ve only gone on maybe a handful of dates, if not their first? (Because it couldn’t be an obvious lack of acting talent. No. Never.) And yet he’s already declaring his love for her?!? Forget him using your pizza box, lady. He’s going to stalk you ’til you’ve got enough fodder for a gripping Lifetime movie! Girlfriend, YOU IN DANGER!

The Young Professionals Covered Lana Del Rey’s “Video Games”!
February 11, 2012

What do you get when Israel’s most fabulous electropop duo covers hipsterdom’s hardest working 1950’s-pinup-poster/hip-hop-video-girl drag act? Electropop magic, that’s what. So much magic that you might as well call this “Video Games” the next installment of Final Fantasy. (LoloUGH, sorry for that.)

Joan Crawford! “Flashdance…What a Feeling”! Halleloo It’s Friday!
February 10, 2012

I’m sorry, maybe it’s the beast of a week I’ve had, or maybe just me being that queen (very likely), but this video is an utter and absolute delight! I mean, Irene Cara’s “Flashdance…What a Feeling”! Who doesn’t love that song? (Nobody.) And Joan Crawford dancing! Who doesn’t delight in Joan Crawford dancing? (Bette Davis, Christina Crawford, fools who refuse the imperative to dance.) My point is that this video’s as marvelous a salve to the week as it is a start to the weekend. And best of all:

Come for the Worcestershire, Stay for the Cake: It’s Nobody Puts Baby in a Horner’s Third Birthday!
February 3, 2012

It’s been three whole years since I first broke blog ground (with a post about Worcestershire sauce, no less), so it seems only necessary to mark this most special occasion with a video about both the history and making of Worcestershire sauce. It’s as fascinating as much as it now makes perfect sense why I love the stuff. Old things and onions and garlic and tamarind and a secret blend of spices? How very all-my-favorite-flavors-I-love-meets-the-Colonel’s-Kentucky-Fried-Chicken. PUT IT IN MY MOUTH, PLEASE!

And look, if Worcestershire sauce isn’t your thing (though why wouldn’t it be?), there’s also cake! A very special GIF cake I made to mark the day, no less:

Somebody Get Lana Del Rey a Thesaurus! Quickly! Posthaste!
February 2, 2012

Ever since my dear friend Shmathan introduced me to Lana Del Rey several months back– and particularly once she bombed on SNL and promptly exploded all over the pop culture zeitgeist (for which I blame Shmathan personally. About the exploding, not the bombing.)–I’ve been thinking a good bit about the internet’s favorite bee-stung hipster-dreamgirl Rubik’s cube. But this post isn’t about me and my words. No no, this is about Lana Del using her words. Well, two of them: beautiful and gorgeous. Behold, a supercut:

And the Award for Best Cover of the Jurassic Park Theme Song by a Melodica Goes To…
February 1, 2012

So good, right? RIGHT?!? I mean, sure, it’s probably the only cover of the Jurassic Park theme song–unless melodica covers of the Jurassic Park theme song become a) a thing or b) the second season of The Voice goes shitballs crazier than Christina Aguilera’s wardrobe–but that still technically makes it’s the “best.” An A for effort, Jurassic Park theme song melodica coverer, and an I for internets. Very, very internets. Clever girl.

Much love to Videogum for this one.
