Simpsons Movie Trailer

Seems like a bad idea to me, unless they're bringing back the old Simpsons writers from back when the show used to be good. Hope they prove me wrong.

Chris Brown featuring Lil Wayne - "Gimme That" Video

Chris Brown and Lil Wayne getting their Smooth Criminal and/or Newsies on:

Cab Calloway "Jitterbug Party" 1935

Great footage, and gotta love the announcer dude.

Don't Quote Dave Chappelle

I'm not sure how "It's Raining Men" fits into all this, but I hope America will learn from this cautionary tale.

South Park Dissing Family Guy

I was digging Family guy when it came out, have the first 3 seasons on DVD.. but after a while the formula wore thin on me, and I stopped even following the post-comeback episodes.. but South Park is still impressing me, if anything more than ever. So I gotta side with them on this one..

Harry Taylor to George Bush: "Stop the Demonic Violence"

President Bush gets the DJ Raedawn treatment from an audience member:

"You never stop talking about freedom, and I appreciate that. But while I listen to you talk about freedom, I see you assert your right to tap my telephone, to arrest me and hold me without charges, to try to preclude me from breathing clean air and drinking clean water and eating safe food. If I were a woman, you'd like to restrict my opportunity to make a choice and decision about whether I can abort a pregnancy on my own behalf..."
...Harry Taylor to George Bush

Parliament Funkadelic: Rare Cartoons/TV Ads

Acupuncturist's Chi Powers

I have no idea if this is real, but it's pretty cool none the less.

An acupuncturist, after over 20 years of daily meditation, can shock people and light newspaper on fire with his Chi.

Kanye West Making a Beat on MTV's Stripped

We don't really see his full process of putting a beat together, as we do with the Just Blaze Smack DVD clip for example, but still some cool footage and commentary from Kanye (having a good day and sounding all smart and mature)

A (fake) preview of the (nonexistent) sequel to James Cameron's Titanic:

Cherie and Marie Currie - "Since You Been Gone" on German TV



35 Minute Inspectah Deck Concert

I didn't think Youtube let you have such a long file anymore.. maybe they slipped this in before the new rules arrived.

Dalip Singh AKA the Great Khali vs. Undertaker on WWE

The Dalip Singh, big dude from The Longest Yard, sonning the Undertaker on Smackdown:

Here's his bio:

Dalip Singh (born August 27, 1972 in Dhirana, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab) is an Indian powerlifter and professional wrestler. Singh is currently working for World Wrestling Entertainment in the United States of America on its SmackDown! brand under the ring name The Great Khali. Before embarking on his professional sports career, Singh, who stands 7 foot 3 inches tall and weighs 420 pounds, was an officer in the Punjab state police, champion bodybuilder, and a Pehlwan athlete.

Dalip Singh was born into a poor family in the village of Dhirana in Himachal Pradesh in the region of Punjab, and is the third of eight siblings. At a young age, he earned a daily wage as a roadside stone breaker to help provide for his family.

In 1993, Singh was still working as a road laborer in the Himalya Hills when his life's circumstances began to change. By this time he had tried his hand at many sports. He excelled in all of them, but showed exceptional talent in bodybuilding. The Director General of the Punjab Police Department took notice of Dalip and helped him join the police force. The change in employment allowed Singh to further his body building training and he subsequently won titles of Mr. India in 1997 and 1998. His success and hard work led him to train as a wrestler in the United States of America in 1999, where he developed the skills necessary to compete on a global stage, enabling him to win numerous wrestling titles in Japan, where he is currently a very popular figure. Singh's training schedule consists of two hours of weight training, morning and evening, every day. His chest measures at 65 inches and he weighs in at approximately 400 lbs. Maintaining his size requires a strict and intimidating daily dietary regimen: one gallon of milk, five chickens and two dozen eggs, along with chapatis, juice and fruit...

John Lennon "Instant Karma" - 1970 on Top of the Pops

With Yoko doing her thing on the side.. I like Yoko. All you haters are corny.

Flintstones Doing Ad for Winston Cigarettes - 1962

Product placement lacked a certain subtlety, back in the 60s.. this is almost as bad as Master Shake's Boost Mobile sellout:

"In the days when the tobacco industry still could advertise on American radio and TV broadcasts, and advertising on TV had more limitless options, it was common for TV programs on prime-time to feature the cast doing plugs for a specific product that was sponsored that night, and the Flintstones was no exception."

Shakira "Hips Don't Lie" video

Umm yeah, so uhh, Shakira is good at dancing and stuff... can't think of anything pithy to say about this.

Shakira and Wyclef doing "hips don't lie"

Cartoon Raid Commercial from the 60s

You sure you want to spray that on your tomatoes??

Andrei Arlovski vs Tim Sylvia - UFC 59

Crazy ending on this one.. skip to the last 30 seconds if you're as lazy as I am:

"Tim Sylvia, a heavy underdog against UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski (Pictures), rebounded from a vicious right hand Saturday night at the Arrowhead Pond to recapture the belt and reign atop the scrambled UFC heavyweight division for a second time.

Headlining the debut Ultimate Fighting Championship in California — the state regulated its first mixed martial arts event on March 10 — the heavyweight clash promised to be better than the 47-second affair the two fighters shared 14 months ago when Arlovski felled and then submitted the 6’ 8” Ellsworth, Maine native in taking the undisputed UFC heavyweight crown..."

Tony Williams Drum Solo

Nice up-close glimpse at one of the greatest drummers ever:

Red Hot Chili Peppers "Dani California" Video

Dani California - their first new video in quite a while, heralding the Red Hot Chili Peppers' album "Stadium Arcadium":

T.I. "What You Know" Video

What you know about dat? Not much at all, to tell you the truth, good sir. Would you care to tell me a few things about dat?

Why thanks!

Missy Elliott "We Run This" Video

Missy's "We Run This" from the soundtrack for "Stick It." I'm sure someone will complain that the whole marching band thing has been done already, but I'm not mad at this.. though I like the initial beat more than the Go-Go Apache part..

Missy Elliott - "We Run This"
Stick It
Motion Picture Soundtrack
Director: Dave Meyers

Ronaldinho Freaks the Technique, Freaks Out Japanese Guys

Football technique, that is. Can't wait to see Brasil rock this world cup.

Gnarls Barkley "Crazy" - Live, on Top of the Pops

Okay this is not from Youtube, but whatevs whatevs.. sweet live rendition of the song:

Get this video and more at MySpace.com

"Gnarls Barkley performed this alternate version of Crazy on Top of the Pops (16 April 2006)"

Sean Paul "Temperature" Video

This video is notable because the women have the same amount of clothing on as the men, at least for the first half. Usually even if they're in a snowstorm the guy has a big coat on and the women are in bikinis..

1955 Soap Opera "Valiant Lady"

An episode of one of the classic 1950s soap operas/serials, with original ads included:

Robot Chicken - Season 2 Episode 2

People keep telling me about this show, so I'm giving it a look-see. I think I need to drink some coffee and come back to this later. It is hurting my head.

Rihanna "SOS" Video

Rihanna is one of about 5 singers out right now that I find completely indistinguishable from one another.. Basically for old fogeys like me, the females of R&B right now are "Beyonce and her 5 understudies."

The Dr. Seuss Bible

Scott Thompson as Jesus + "Doctor Seuss's crucifixion machine" = comedy masterpiece

Kids in the Hall, represent!

Close-Up Toothpaste Commercial - 1977

Wow, people were dorky in the 70s.

Singapore Yo-Yo Gangstas

This is not a game, son! Yo-yo gulliness from Singapore's Hougang RC Boys crew.

Eddie Hazel w/ Bernie Worrell andTM Stevens "Red Hot Mama"

For the hardcore heads, some rare P-Funkery with up-close footage of Eddie Hazel on guitar:

SNL TV Funhouse: "Disney Vault" Parody

Robert Smigel strikes a blow for the cause of justice, finally exposing the dark underbelly of the Disney Empire. Glad to see I'm not the only one who never understood the purpose of Mickey Mouse.. Mickey lives on only to be a sad reminder of the era when we lived without modern innovations like "wit" and "personality."

"Ever wondered what happens to the stuff Disney doesn't want you know about any more.... well time to find out.

Join Mickey Mouse and learn in this funny Disney Vault video the fate of 'Song of the South', the information on Walt's involvement with HUAC and a few other Skeletons !"

Method Man and Redman - St Ides Malt Liquor Ad

What are you a doofus? Acting like you ruthless..

Pink "Dear Mr. President" Live on MTV TRL

Pink performing her much-anticipated anti-Bush anthem "Dear Mr. President" live in Times Square, on MTV's TRL. This is a pretty damn good protest song, as pop protest goes these days. Easily beats out that Conor Oberst joint.

Harmony Korine on David Letterman - 1998

His third and final appearance on the Late Show, promoting his book "Crackup at the Race Riots." Considered a classic by those who enjoy awkward moments:

The Legendary "Average Homeboy" Rap

An oldie but a, err, goodie?

Polish Hip-Hop (or Maybe Polish Reggaeton)

Can anyone ID this band for us?

Jim Henson Munchos Commercial - 1969

Featuring an early incarnation of the Cookie Monster, before he discovered cookies?

Gnarls Barkley "Crazy" Official Video

The Gnarls Barkley backlash is already in full swing, but I think this song and video are well worthy of blowing up. (haven't heard whole album yet, so beyond that I won't hate on the haters)

Pussycat Dolls with Snoop Dogg - "Buttons" Video

Snoop sure has a tough life.. I want to know whatever happened to the other members of Eden's Crush.

Sly and the Family Stone - Live at Ohio State, 1968

Sly and the crew winning first place in a talent contest. I know I toss out superlatives all the time in here, but seriously this is some amazing footage right here:

Atmosphere "Say Hey There" Video

With that haircut Slug suddenly bears a strong resemblance to John Mayer. With maybe a little Vincent D'Onofrio mixed in. (via imageyenation)

Sesame Street Subway Song - 1975?

Now this is that real old school New York flavor. Clearly from some time in the 70s. I keep waiting for one of the gangs from Warriors to jump out. (via kottke)

Wes Anderson American Express Ad

Sorry for commercial interruption but I'm a big Wes Anderson fan, or "Stan" as the kids like to say now. Kids are so judgmental these days.

I'm not gonna pretend I caught the Truffaut reference, but it's still a cool ad as ads go:

April 27, 2006

Behind the Scenes Footage: In the Studio With J Dilla

A tour of the late great J Dilla's basement studio, with Common and Frank & Dank.

Parliament Funkadelic on Arsenio - 1993

Another big old funky mess. They start with one of my favorite Funkadelic tracks, "Alice In My Fantasies"

E-40 on MTV Punk'd

Punk'd targets another rapper, and (big shock!) a confrontation with cops is involved. But E-40 stays unfazed throughout, as befits the coolest man in Cali.

April 28, 2006

Chappelle Show - The Wayne Brady Sketch

For my friend who hasn't seen it yet:

The Junkyard Band "Ruff It Off"

A local tv appearance by DC's go-go crew The Junkyard Band, best known for "Sardines" if anyone remembers that. (if you don't remember it you need to go find it, cuz it's funky)

60 Minutes of Radiohead Live in Paris

A nice long clip snuck in before Youtube added their 10-minute limit:

1969 Mcdonalds Commercial

Wait, is that John Amos from Good Times in there? Damn, damn, damn!
