11-11-11 [Fuck You Friday]

November 11th, 2011 by

It's a Fuck You Friday.This is pretty cool.

Days like today don't come along very often.

It's a Friday.

A Friday.

And that means it's a Fuck You Friday.

Right now as this post is published, it is November 11, 2011 at 11:11 AM PST.

Awesome.

And fuck you.

The horror of the unblinking yawner.

November 5th, 2011 by

Cats make the biggest face when they yawn.

It's awesome.

Except when sometimes it goes wrong.

Cricket's yawn.

From the Tumblr account of Yuko Ota, one of the two behind the mighty webcomic Johnny Wander:

Cricket yawning. Photoshop doodle.

When the kitten yawns, she looks positively fiendish. I am not kidding, the face she makes straddles the line between disturbingly cute and disturbingly otherworldly. Do cats usually not close their eyes when they yawn? I think Rook closes his eyes when he yawns. Maybe Cricket is some sorta changeling.

Cats' yawns take up their whole head, their whole face.

The Deftones knew that. Hence what was on the cover for their 1995 single "Bored."

Here's the video for that song.

And the next time a cat yawns near you... watch.

Whether we like it or not.

Viking arrivals. [What Day Is It?]

October 9th, 2011 by

Do you know what today is?

It's October 9, and that means it's Leif Erikson Day.

Leif is credited with one of the first "discoveries" of what is now America.

And so, in his honor we present Joel Veitch's immortal (now deleted off of his site rathergood.com by fear of lawsuit) take on Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song."

With viking kittens.

Yup. You'll see; but beware... thar be auto-play ahead, matey.

Fuck you, I'm a wizard. [Fuck You Friday]

Friday, Friday, Friday.

It's a Fuck You Friday. Always. No exceptions -- ever.

It's important. Always.

Now, this:

FURTHER EVIDENCE:

Wizards have powers. It's key to know that. And y'know what?

Fuck you.

Comforting Static In The Channel

STATIC STATIC STATIC

Familiar? Somehow comforting? Yes.

Comforting like an old shirt.

This tangent leads to this:

And back to this:

Anamanaguchi playing "Airbrushed" live.

Synopsis: Distortion is not a bad thing.

"Brian, what's the history of Cinco De Mayo?" [What Day Is It?]

From those gleeful merchants of brevity at 5-Second Films comes this important piece of historical context:

Innovation Equals Two Swords As One

April 18th, 2011 by

Innovation is where you find it inside one's self.

Observe:

This is "Ni-Ten-Ichi-Ryu (2 Swords Technique)" by Photek.

The song and video are inspired by the famed warrior Miyamoto Musashi's technique and koryƫ.

ni-ten-ichi-ryu

There are two explicit things to take away from this video:

1.) You can innovate as quickly as you can think of it.

2.) Sword-fighting sequences are awesome.
