Epic Rap Battles: Mitt Romney vs Barack Obama

Guess I should post this before it’s no longer relevant. NicePeter’s run-in as Abe Lincoln really made this one, though that Obama impersonator is awesome as always. How many videos has this guy been in? I’ve seen him like a dozen times now. For what it’s worth, the Frank Sinatra vs Freddy Mercury battle was …

And people complained about MY Venn diagrams!

enhanced-buzz-wide-6721-1349114476-12

These ads for some service called Speck apparently ran recently in New York. I’m sure New Yorkers have more important things to worry about right now, but I thought I’d catch the rest of you all up on this ad, which completely mangles the very concept of the Venn diagram to a far greater degree …

Video of ConEd building explosion in NYC

Apparently this is the ConEd building at E14th and FDR. Pretty cataclysmic. Shouldn’t be long before news outlets start picking this up. If you’re in the path of this hurricane, get off my damn blog and get to a hurricane shelter ASAP. And remember, Mitt Romney will get rid of FEMA. He said so himself. …

Joss Whedon: Vote for the greater evil already! Vote Romney!

Why settle for anything less than Romney and the oncoming zombie apocalypse? Let’s make with the natural selection already! I’m playing all the Assassin’s Creed and Mirror’s Edge I can in preparation for the apocalypse. What are you doing?

Mock The Movie: Bride of the Monster Transcript

Screenshot: Bela Lugosi's eyebrows with the caption "@brx0: Bela eyebrows! DRINK!"

Bah! In the middle of repairing a busted desktop, which I’ll need if we intend to go through with this 24hr gameathon I’ve got planned with JT Eberhart ready to roll any time soon, so I’ll come back and edit in the subtitle files ASAP. CA7746 also sent along a hilarious screenshot of Bela Eyebrows. …

Hard drive recovery 301

Let’s say you have a hard drive whose media is failing but whose controller card is still functional. Let’s further say you have a desire to pull a partition off that drive and see what’s still salvageable. And let’s further say you have a computer you’re okay with leaving on for a month or so …

First world problems discussed by people with third world problems

Yeah. Our lives, our hyper-privileged lives, spent not having to worry about clean water or health care or food. Okay, some of us do, but very likely not the people reading this blog right now. These Haitians (I presume, by the French and the conditions) certainly put things into perspective. I know that we can …

Mock The Movie: Bride of the Monster

Yeah, yeah. We know. MST3k already pretty much pulled this apart and reassembled it into funny faces like so many Mr. Potatohead parts. But watching people mock crappy movies is not nearly as fun as mocking them ourselves. So, this Thursday, we’re going to take on the Ed Wood “classic”, Bride of the Monster. The …

Martin S Pribble on “The Hyper-Skeptic Problem”

Sorry. It’s shaping up to be another one of those weeks. Seems a lot of us around these parts are being struck with Real Life all at once. I don’t have it as bad as some, certainly, but I’m pretty swamped out at the moment. So I’m more than happy to spread around what few …

That Mitchell and Webb Look on gendered TV ads

That Mitchell and Webb Look is the same series that resulted in that Homeopathic Hospital sketch that like everyone in the skeptical blogosphere has posted at some time, that ‘atheist miracle watermelon’ sketch that everyone in the atheist blogosphere has posted at some time, and the “How would BBC1 handle an alien invasion” sketch I …
