Category Archives: …The Hell Is This?

BTFO!

I have seen a lot of weird movies/comics/music videos/what-have-you. Stuff made on weapons-grade drugs. Grant Morrison’s Doom Patrol. Die Antwoord. The criminally terrible After Last Season. But I can honestly say that this has blown it out bigger and madder than almost anything I’ve ever seen before.

It’s so insane that the video can’t be played outside of its native YouTube.

I have NO idea what’s going on in the second sequence, but I want to see that movie. The guy on the plane like some kind of inverted hood ornament looks like it might be some kind of Flash-inspired thing. And the catapults….

Bollywood kills it. Hollywood isn’t producing anything anywhere near this imaginative and insane. Someone get these guys to Hollywood with an unlimited budget.

If I Were 25, I Would Totes Buy…. This Product Or Whatever

Dissolve creates the Generic Millenial Ad –

It’s so eclectic and surprising.

Reaching The Music Singularity

“Better keep it real –
Or whatever”

– Steely Dan, “Pixeleen”

Steely Dan quit touring in 1974, saying they hated it.  In 1993, they starting touring again, and now Donald Fagen is announcing a new tour at the age of 69. So, if they don’t like touring, why go back to Annandale, as it were? The Don tells the Wall Street Journal (behind a paywall, unfortunately) –

When the bottom fell out of the record business a bunch of years ago, it deprived me of the luxury of earning a living from records. I don’t sell enough albums to cover the cost of recording them the way I like to. For me, touring is the only way to make a living.

Turns out The Dan is not the only band touring to make some cash. Guns ‘n’ Roses is hitting the circuit to make some pay as well. The fact that the band hasn’t released a new album since 2008 is no obstacle. Proving that a band does not need to be creating new stuff to make money.

Or even alive. Ronnie James Dio is going on tour despite being currently dead. A hologram of Dio will perform with a live band.

No word on whether Jem will be the opening act.

 

One awaits the inevitable “Steely Dead” tour.

71717

A palindromic date after a week of palindromic dates, and still a couple days to go. Next year it will happen for ten days in August.

‘Tis a fine blue sky on a Monday here. Which is a hopeless segue into the song “Blue Monday” by New Order. If you don’t know the song (and unless you’re under the age of 20, how couldn’t you? Did your parents hate good music?), give it a listen.

It was redone a few years later, sounding a bit different and released at “Blue Monday 88” (another palindromic number, if only just barely),* which also garnered much airplay.

Taking it to an ultra-blue level, Orkestra Obsolete has covered the song in retro style using only 1930s instruments.

Jazzy, in an art-deco-on-acid kind of way.

  • 1988, or “88,” is an unusual number, given that 1+9+8+8=26 and 2+6=8. And the 8s are sideways Infinity symbols. No, there’s no point to this information.

 

What The Hell Did I Just Watch?

 

Attempted murder, at least. Vehicular assault and possible homicide at worst. No idea how the riders in the truck fared.

And this is one of the lesser examples of road rage found online.

Notice how the guy on the bike, who should have been crushed, crashed, or slammed, just sailed right through it all like a boss.

Literally Raping The Earth? [Kinda NSFW]

…I can’t even tell if this stuff is real anymore.

Now we just need a remixed Mickey Avalon song as the soundtrack. Yeah, that NSFW one.

My dick

Hypermasculine bragging

Environmental fragging

Who Needs Drugs When You Have 4D?

Watch this to make your brain hurt…

I’ve been looking at stuff like that for the past hour or two. I think I need to lie down for a while.

Bill Nye, The Sex Junk Guy (No, Really)

“Give it up for DJ Seahorse!” – Bill Nye

Bill Nye the self-described Science Guy teamed up with Rachel Bloom to make a pro-LGBT music video about sexuality being a spectrum, titled “My Sex Junk.”

If you have to ask if it’s NSFW or not, then welcome to planet Earth, stranger.

To borrow some Science Terms from giants such as Newton, Einstein, and Winkler, this thing has not only accelerated to momentary escape velocity on a perpendicular axis in relation to the Carcharhinus amblyrhynchos, it’s looped around an 8-dimensional quantum Mobius Strip and inverted itself into a null version composed purely of hilaritons.

…it’s so bad its hilarious. I honestly cannot tell if this is for real or a joke.

Despite all of that, the most balls-out king hell maximoweird is seeing Bill Nye at a DJ booth getting jiggy with it. It’s like seeing a green-haired Lawrence Welk in a mosh pit.

It’s dangerous work, but somebody has to do it.
