New “fake” Challenge


You have all heard of the Ice Bucket Challenge that raised millions for ALS (Which BTW my mother-in-law died from)
Now there is this challenge that is fake. But I like it though. Maybe we can get our Patty to try it and post a selfie ??

13 Star Wars Costumes in 4 Minutes

The song's not bad. It has a good beat and I feel like I could dance to it.

But the greatest thing about the video is the change into 13 different costumes during the song -- ALL FROM STAR WARS!!

Bonus light sabre action at the end!!

Sadly, I cannot name them all. Can you?

Happy Harry

I recently found out about an animator named Harry Partridge who does bizarre shorts that are perfect Weird Universe material. These two are my favorites, but be sure to go to the Happy Harry Toons YouTube page for more absurdity.

Do a Good Deed Daily

Who says there are no rewards for doing good deeds?

Can’t Do Anything Right?  You Are Not Alone

If you stay up late all the time, like I do, chances are you've seen some of the infomercials that this video is based upon. I'm willing to bet you feel better about yourself after you've watched this.

These Are the Droids You’re Looking For

Everybody who's anybody knows that one of the best motion pictures of all time is the original Star Wars. So what is the best way to pay tribute to such a cinematic masterpiece? That's right, by breaking the film into 472 fifteen second clips and having fans reenact it. Ladies and gentlemen, I present Star Wars Uncut:

Star Wars: Uncut Trailer from Casey Pugh on Vimeo.

As confusing as it should be to change actors, style, and even plot details four times per minute, somehow this actually works. There are some completed segments and you can see most of the individual clips on their site. I only wish I had found out about this sooner, so I could take part.

I seriously can't wait until this comes out.

The A To Z Of Awesomeness!

British comic book artist Neill Cameron has been posting one letter a day of sheer awesomeness, based on suggestions from fans. Now the alphabet is complete everyone can view such wonders as "Aztecs in Atomic Armour Attacking Anomalous Amphibians" and "Doctor Who Defeating Doctor Doom in a Deadly Disco Dance-off" for themselves.

So if you've ever longed to see Lois Lane, Lana Lang and Lori Lemaris lasciviously licking lollipops at a London landmark, why not have a look-see at Neill's A to Z of Awesomeness. You'll love it!

Brandon Bird


Brandon Bird is an artist whose style might best be described as "pop culture Norman Rockwell." Pictured above is one of his most famous works, No One Wants to Play Sega with Harrison Ford. Head on over to his website to see more of his work, including a Law & Order themed coloring book, children's letters to Christopher Walken, and a version of The Last Supper featuring 12 James Woodses (and RoboCop).
