I’m only quarter Jewish…

Oh man. I like Mel Gibson, I really do. I think he is a fantastic actor. Braveheart is one of my top 5 all time favorite movies. But he does have a drinking problem. And he said some anti-semitic things while drunk… He asked for forgiveness. I forgive him.

But now he has a new website to explain his, erm, remarks – I Hate Juice dot com.

It’s messed up, yet it’s a bit funny. Someone had too much time on their hands to create this in 1 week.

teh Funny intartube – 1.1

I have recently seen some funny videos on the web, so I wanted to spread teh funny wealth.

1. Darth Vader being a smartass: OMG! This is just classic. It definitely helps if you have some knowledge of Empire (and the scene this was taken from).

2. Frustrated Mac User: I may have posted this before, but it is extremely teh funny.

3. Pirates 2 crushes Aquaman: Apparently somebody negleted to tell this CNBC reporter that Aquaman was a fictional movie directed by James Cameron and starring Vincent Chase (from the fantastic HBO show Entourage – If you haven’t seen Entourage, go get seasons 1 and 2 on DVD. You will not be disappointed).

4. The Nickel Trick: Probably one of the best billiards shots ever invented.

5. Video Made the Internet Star – Not the funniest thing ever, but extremely creative use of treadmills.

6. Fall Out Boy – Sugar, We’re going down – The misheard lyrics. In video/MSPaint format. The one that started them all (at least for me – thanks to Daniel Almaraz)

7. Nightwish – Wishmaster: The misheard lyrics. Another video along the lines of the Fall Out Boy video above. Fantastically cheesy song.

8. Dream Theater – Only a matter of Tyme: The misheard lyrics. In this case, Thyme is even misspelled. Uses live footage as the video, but the words are good and it is my favorite band…

9. Dream Theater – Innocence Faded: Another DT misheard lyrics. And only pictures for the video, but funny lyrics.

And I’m spent. If you know of any funny videos that you think belong in a post such as this, let me know.

UPDATE: I removed the embeded video from these links because they were causing my site to load… poorly. – Yarsh 08.15.2006

Movie Mash-ups / Recuts

I still haven’t even begun working with my new blog software, but I did want to make a post for Rickey.

This weekend, I showed him a couple of the really funny Movie Mash-ups / Recuts that have been all the rage recently on the net. We had some good laughs and I promised to find more. So here is a list of the ones I deem to be the funniest. If you have any more to share, let me know via comments or email.

All of these videos can be seen at YouTube, or you can click on anything other than the Play button on each of the videos to see them in full size.

1. Shining (Recut trailer for The Shining – the one that started it all)

                     

2. Brokeback to the Future (Mash-up of Brokeback Mountain & Back to the Future)

                  

3. 10 things I hate about Commandments (Mash-up of The 10 Commandments & 10 things I hate about you)

Internet Goodies…

My brother, in the past, has written about the wonders of YouTube. You can find some great videos (and some terrible ones) on there, all for free viewing. Recently, I found that you can integrate their videos into your own personal website. The only “quirky” behavior that these videos have is dependent on where you click. If you click on the big Play button in the middle of the screen, or on the small Play button in the bottom-left timeline, it will play the movie directly from this page. However, if you click elsewhere in the video screen, it redirects the browser to that particular YouTube page (new window in IE, or new tab in Firefox). But hey, it’s still sweet that you can do this. Mad props* to YouTube.

Anyways, I thought I would pass along one of my recent favorites: BrokebackTo The Future.

The RMC

The RMC has nothing to do with The DCtm. It was “The Rumsfeld-Mineta Challenge” – at least it was known as this online. The players knew it as “The Richard Moore Challenge.”

I devised a game, in which players would submit words or phrases for use on a target. The target was unknowingly being barraged by bizarreness from straight-faced friends, while in the meantime the players were scoring points for using said words/phrases. The rules were simple: You could not use a word or phrase that you yourself had submitted; When you used a word/phrase, there had to be another player present in order to verify that the word had been successfully used; Once a word/phrase had been used, it could not be used again. Sounds like fun, eh? It was.

Mark ended up winning by a large margin, mostly due to accessibility to the target. Below is an extensive list1 of words/phrases used successfully (by any player).
