“That’s What She Said,” Said Alfred Hitchcock
June 10, 2010

Alfred Hitchcock: He’s already regarded as the Master of Supense, one of the great auteurs of cinema, a total blond enthusiast, and now there’s this:

Man responsible for the first recorded “That’s What She Said” joke.  Or, as they liked to say in the days of the early talkies, “As the girl said to the soldier.”  Pervy-pants ZING!, set, and match, Mr. Hitchcock.  It’s nice see you’re as just as dirty minded as tireless amounts of film criticism have insisted.  Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to get to writing some petitions.  Me thinks the film historians have got some revisioning to do…

Much love to Vulture, via Buzzfeed.

These Little Girls Burn When They “Single Ladies” Dance
May 12, 2010

On one hand, there’s no train wreck quite like the train wreck that is a bunch of little Nomi Malone’s in training:

Brava? Sure, brava!

Seriously, you don’t get a performance like that without being the sort of über-bitchy pageant mom that warrants a side-eye so cold it could cut diamonds:


Iron Man Has the Time of His Life
April 22, 2010

Seeing as Dirty Dancing is responsible for this little corner of the internet’s nom de blog, and seeing as I–like every other hot-blooded nerd–am eagerly awaiting Iron Man 2, I’m all but bound by blogligation to post the Iron Man/Dirty Dancing mash-up because:

A) Those are the rules, and

B) According to this video’s description, “Iron Man and ACDC make any film better!! 😉

So even though I’ve no idea what to do with this thing, let’s do this thing all the same:

Huh.  Well, that happened.  And now that it’s happened, let’s all pretend like it didn’t, shall we?

Yes, let’s.

Cheers to Videogum for pointing me towards EPICponyz for this nugget of insanity.

Presented With Limited Commentary: A Whole Bunch of Things That This Kid Hates
April 5, 2010

It’s worth mentioning that this kid drops the F-bomb.  A lot.  So let that help you decide whether it’s better to watch this video now or save it for later, but let’s also be clear that you do need to watch this video at one point or another because this kid’s rant seriously deserves a gold star:

To the back of the line, kid who hates Lady Gaga! Nobody Puts Baby in a Horner has a new YouTube rant winner, and it’s this kid.  He hates EVERYTHING.

Oh, and much love to Videogum for this YouTube rant hotness.

A Nobody Puts Baby in a Horner Promise: “Cycles” Will Blow Your F**kin’ Mind
March 10, 2010

Maybe it’s just me, but I never thought to wonder what it’d be like to trip balls on the boardwalk while listening to Gameboy music with an armful of teddy bears and a collection of M.C. Escher prints in hand.  Perhaps that makes me boring, but at least we now have an answer:

All of the sudden, I feel so less epicurean.  Don’t you?

So much love to Videogum for this synapse melter.

Here’s a Ten-Minute Video of My Little Ponies Singing Showtunes. You’re Welcome
February 23, 2010

I’m not saying that a video of two people in life-size My Little Pony costumes performing show tunes isn’t a metaphor for my childhood:

I’m just saying that a medley of selections from Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker and Genesis’s Invisible Touch as performed by Dino Riders and a Barbie doll whilst I prance around the stage on my mom’s old long-handed duster and hum the Wicked Witch of the West’s theme song would be far more on the nose.

And Wagnerian.  At least in terms of freakish absurdity.

Naturally much love to Videogum and Dlisted.  Teamwork makes the dream work.

This Is Why We Interweb
January 27, 2010

Perhaps it’s wrong to reduce something as complex and integrated into our daily routine as the internet to something as simple as this:

But then, when you think about it, it makes perfect sense.

As it is so frequently with these sorts of things, much love to Videogum.
