Oh, Monsieur!!!

"That guy needs a hug..."

It sounds a lot like the Wilhelm scream. Listen.

Karaoke Man

Today I was reading an article about 65 Great Protest Songs that, in a roundabout sorta way led me back to another amazing performance I saw on youtube a while back...

Some people thought it was Bruce Willis in disguise and not a homeless guy at all. I have to admit, after hearing the rumor I saw the resemblance too. After doing some more reading I found the documentary "Kareoke Man". His name is Super Bad Brad and he really is homeless. In the documentary he says there's nothing better than finding your favorite song playing on the radio...

Leeloo Dallas Multipass

Just saw this article today about how The Fifth Element is one of the best sci-fi movies of all time and I have to agree. It leaves out two of my fave scenes though.

The first is when Korben Dallas is at the check-in to the flight to Fhloston Paradise explaining that he and Leeloo are newly weds and Leeloo is babbling about her about her multipass. Korben final shouts, "YEAH! She KNOWS it's a multipass!!! Anyway, we're in love..." The timing of the line is perfect and I can't do it justice here, you'll just have to watch it.

A Manson and a Yacht

I just stumbled across this old internet story...

FBI agents conducted a "search and seizure" at the Southwood Psychiatric Hospital in San Diego, which was under investigation for medical insurance fraud. After hours of poring over many rooms of financial records, some sixty FBI agents worked up quite an appetite. The case agent in charge of the investigation called a local pizza parlor with delivery service to order a quick dinner for his colleagues.

The following telephone conversation took place:



Agent: Hello. I would like to order nineteen large pizzas and sixty-seven cans of soda.

Pizza man: And where would you like them delivered?

Agent: To the Southwood Psychiatric Hospital.

Pizza man: To the psychiatric hospital?

Agent: That's right. I'm an FBI agent.

Pizza man: You're an FBI agent?

Agent: That's correct. Just about everybody here is.

Pizza man: And you're at the psychiatric hospital?

Agent: That's correct. And make sure you don't go through the front doors. We have them locked. You'll have to go around to the back to the service entrance to deliver the pizzas.

Pizza man: And you say you're all FBI agents?

Agent: That's right. How soon can you have them here?

Pizza man: And you're over at Southwood?

Agent: That's right. How soon can you have them here?

Pizza man: And everyone at Southwood is an FBI agent?

Agent: That's right. We've been here all day and we're starving.

Pizza man: How are you going to pay for this?

Agent: I have my check book right here.

Pizza man: And you are all FBI agents?

Agent: That's right, everyone here is an FBI agent. Can you remember to bring the pizzas and sodas to the service entrance in the rear? We have the front doors locked.

Pizza man: I don't think so.
Click.

Turns out it is true.

Music Day

She's pretty good and I think she is playing "Miserlou" in the first minute or so which caused me to find the following video...

Taimane gives Miserlou an interesting spin on the ukulele. Here's another imperfect Miserlou performance but has a nice energy. And finally, here is a silly version of the song...

The Bottom Of This

The only explanation that makes sense at this point is that he is trying to be the worst president in history.
