Holy shit. Speechless. Dizzy. Giddy. Goosebumps. These were some of the things circling through my head after watching this most epic of mashup videos. Inspired by Steven Jay Schneider’s incredible book series, 1,001 MOVIES YOU MUST SEE (BEFORE YOU DIE) , this video contains an additional 215 extra titles to illustrate the the sheer, visual and aural brilliance of the most powerful medium of human civilization.
Edited by Johnathan Keogh, it took him over a year to create this video and damn, he did a fine job. It is literally a rollercoaster, mind fuck, movie explosion and the best 10 minutes you’ll see in quite awhile. If I was living in A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, captured and brainwashed by having my eyes pried open, then I can imagine watching this video. Read more...
Yes, it’s raining and raining hard here in L.A. and as we’re in the midst of this bad drought, any sort of wetness is welcome.
But you know what—all those stereotypes of Angelenos and rain are pretty much true. Everything from how we can’t drive in the rain (yes, I saw at least three accidents coming into the YOMYOMF office) to how even a little bit of rain leads to major freak-outs:
You heard that right, folks. While zoos in other parts of the world can only manage to get exotic animals like pandas and elephants and condors, North Korea’s Central Zoo has topped them all with their latest acquisition: dogs.
Specially, Yorkshire Terriers as you can see from the pic above.
Little did I know, Mexico produces quite tasty wine. I went on a cruise to Ensanada , a little town in Baja with little expectations. At the risk of being a dumb American tourist, I literally followed a friend onto a cruise with no idea where I was actually going. We docked in Ensanada and got off… and my friend suggested visiting a couple of wineries on Ruta del Vino (the “wine route” in Baja).
You know your kid’s team is about to get slaughtered. Do you let them play, or do you forfeit?
I go out of town for two days, and all hell breaks loose. I come back to find two dozen emails back and forth between the coach of my 13 year old son’s futsal (indoor soccer) team The Rockets, and the players’ parents, debating whether it’s best to let the Rockets be crushed by the Lions or not.
Apparently, the bootleg bluray of Spike Lee’s remake of the Korean revenge thriller Oldboy is making the rounds in China. And as you can see, whoever packaged this, picked an interesting critic’s quote to use on the box:
“An unnecessary sub-par remake.” Ouch.
I know the film wasn’t a critical darling when it was released last fall, but I know there are at least a few positive reviews that could have been used instead. So is this simply truth in advertising, reverse psychology, a lack of English comprehension skills on the part of the proofreader? Read more...
Of course they’re not real pandas, but have markings that make them look that way. The pups are a mixture of Pekingese and mutt and…Ah, screw it, who needs a bunch of blah, blah, blah when you can just post pics of cute panda dogs:
The United States is facing a crisis. We’re running out of execution drugs.
Ever since the courts found death by firing squad, hanging and the electric chair to be inhumane, we’ve turned to pharmacies to help us exact our vengeance. Pharmacies like the “Apothecary Shoppe,” based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, which had supplied the Missouri Department of Corrections with pentobarbital, decided to call it quits after the pharmacy was named in a lawsuit filed by death row inmate Michael Taylor. The lawsuit alleges that the drug causes “inhumane pain.”
He wrote, directed and/or starred in some of the greatest comedic creations of the past three+ decades including Animal House, Meatballs, Caddyshack, Ghostbusters, Stripes, Groundhog Day and Analyze This, among many others.
It’s hard to pick one favorite moment from his many wonderful films, but the following scene from Caddyshack (Ramis’ directorial debut) is as brilliant a comedic sequence as any I’ve seen: A ritzy country club swimming pool, a discarded Baby Ruth bar, the theme from Jaws and the perfect tag at the end from Bill Murray who’s never been funnier and you have pure comedic gold.
My partner and I have been trying to conceive for a year. We’re both relatively advanced in age, so it’s possible we may not have children. We might, but we also might not.
I’m contemplating what it’d be like to miss the experience of raising a child. Without kids, we’d get more sleep, be less stressed, retain more money to spend on art and adventures (and junk food), and have extra time to indulge in pleasures and art projects/work. Read more...
The closing ceremony of the Sochi Winter Olympics was tonight and the U.S. Women’s Hockey Team forward Julie Chu was selected to carry the American flag. And surprise, surprise! Once again our good ole racist social media friends came out of the woodwork with tweets like this:
