daecabhir: (WTF Is This Shite?)

With thanks to the LJ-less Michael Walsh. Yes, shit like this does happen, in all parts of the coding business.

So, there is this animated short that I saw once at Balticon back when it was at the Hunt Valley Marriott before Balticon took up residence downtown in the 90's. I saw it with Paul Loeschke, and we've beem using the refrain from it for years as our personal joke - sounds like 'nyeh nyeh, nyeh nyeh nyeh', in a soft voice, with a slow pacing. Eventually we figured out the name of the short: "The Man Who Had To Sing", by Milan Blazekovic. Ever since then we've been looking for it, but haven't found a copy online or on a purchasble medium. But I did come across a sample of Blazekovic's work, which I am happy to share with you here.

...but to quote Tee Morris, this is proof that David Tennant "gets it"... LMMFAO.

daecabhir: (Rockin Out)

Most people don't know that I am an afficianado of the bass guitar. Can't play worth a damn, but I truly appreciate the mad skills of bassists like Chris Squire (Yes), Geddy Lee (Rush), Flea (RHCP) and Stuart Hamm. I am now going to have to hunt down some more stuff by Ric Fierabracci... damn.

Shamelessly ganked from [livejournal.com profile] popfiend. It speaks for itself.

daecabhir: (Calvin's Selective Reality)

I follow ArtThreat on Twitter, and checked out this post about a rap video that ruffled some feathers. It is probably not safe for work due to language, but I think it is evocative and insightful, and worth watching even if you are one of the people who has been totally brain-washed by rhetoric about the war in Iraq. Especially if you are one of those people.

daecabhir: (WTF??)

Ganked, completely and totally, from [livejournal.com profile] rono64. Vintage Shatner spoken word of the Elton John and Bernie Taupin classic "Rocket Man".

daecabhir: (Charlie Brown Owned)

Ganked from [livejournal.com profile] popfiend. All I can say is "daaaaaaaaaaamn..."

daecabhir: (Christmas Wilson)

...and still funny as hell. Japanese game show - think Human Tetris. Many thanks to fellow Tweeter ShannonFarrell!

daecabhir: (Santa Jedi)

Erm, I mean, Happy Chanukah!

daecabhir: (Fuckin' Pissed Off!)

Dear Vice President Cheney:

Could you kindly explain what the f*ck has changed???.

Regards, an angry American.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] kradical for this link to then SecDef Cheney explaining why it was a bad idea to invade Iraq at the end of Desert Storm.

daecabhir: (Tigger Bouncing)

Work safe, highly amusing.

daecabhir: (Party On!)
I received a WMV file of this from [livejournal.com profile] boozeandmixer's wife Sherri... work safe, but you gotta crank the volume to truly appreciate the skill of Chris Bliss in this performance... if this doesn't blow you away, your heart is dead... )
daecabhir: (Party On!)
Rum, Precioussss? Is it... tasty?

Very. We likes Bacardi Select with our Coca-Cola, we do. Nice little buzz going on here, so methinks I will retire for the evening. Not everything that needed to happen over the long weekend did indeed happen, and I am still behind the eight ball... but to mis-quote Miss Mary Poppins, a little bit of rum drink helps the medicine go down...

So, since I am even more useless than usual, I wish to leave you this little bit from UToob that I received from [livejournal.com profile] mazinger_z by way of [livejournal.com profile] ravynmaniac. The things those crazy Canucks will fund for research would probably have some folks down here gnashing their teeth...

Hey [livejournal.com profile] punkwalrus, check out the music playing... bring back any memories? At some point I am going to get my copy of The Europeans' "The Animal Song" ripped from vinyl, so I can continue to relive misspent nights of my late teens, slam dancing and acting like a fool. Glory days...

daecabhir: (Now I'm Pissed)
Ganked from [livejournal.com profile] kradical. I can't add anything to this response to Dubya's latest unreality check from Keith Olbermann MSNBC, since he pretty much lays it all out, even more eloquently than I could.

daecabhir: (Who Me??)
And I mean seriously "old school"... ganked from [livejournal.com profile] kradical, I give you Carol of the Old Ones... put down your drink before you click. You have been warned!
daecabhir: (Who Me??)

The link was passed along by [livejournal.com profile] ravynmaniac, and I think after watching this the Wrong-O-Meter needs to be recalibrated. Probably not work safe, but not only is it fragging hilarious, it is just plain well made in terms of how the video was cut to the music. DO NOT drink any liquids while watching this video.
