Rick And Morty Season 3 Teaser And More

Rick and Morty Season 3

What are you in for? Everything.

Early Animation From Comic Con 2016

I am one of the zillions of people who love Rick And Morty. In my opinion this show is as revolutionary and next level, as the Simpsons was back in 1987. It’s so brilliant, poignant, brutal, and FUNNY, that it became insanely popular almost instantly.
The entire universe awaits Season 3, which is set to premiere around the end of the year (hooray). Production has progressed to the animated sketch stage (I’m sure there’s a term for this level of animation.), which is what we were shown at Comic Con. It shows Rick being Rick.
He apparently has to ‘evolve’ back into a human body, climbing the hierarchy from bug, to rat, to …. what next? Something horrific no doubt.

Totally Improvised Rick and Morty Mini Story

The universe sees that we hunger and lust for Rick and Morty season 3, and she bestows upon us this off the cuff, improvised live episode like manna from heaven.

I don’t know the context of this little slice of fried gold, but it seems like the cast and writers just threw it together. It feels live not contrived.

One thing I love is watching Justin Roiland voice both Rick and Morty in real time. The guy is talented. Dan Harmon is like the Dungeon Master, as he throws out information and scenarios for the cast to respond to.

The Summer of Summer

Guess what? Summer goes to Harvard, Morty amputates his legs and has jets on his stumps (poop is involved), and Summer shoots John Lennon. Yeah. Wubba lubba dub dub, indeed. It’s pretty funny, and I actually prefer this to the pencil sketch preview of Rick the Roach.

Both videos do succeed in making me hanker for Rick and Morty Season 3 all the more hungrily.

Norm MacDonald’s Hitler Joke Compilation Video

I never thought I would be writing this, but I want you to watch this video of Norm Macdonald hitler jokes.

I never really cared for the comedy of Norm MacDonald, but there was one night while I was gaming, with YouTube playing in the background. The Christopher Hitchens debate ended, and Norm MacDonald fired up on auto play. I was busy gaming so I went with it.

Call it Stockholm Syndrome if you must, but after awhile I just busted out laughing. It wasn’t the Hitler jokes, it was a truly filthy conversation with Gilbert Gottfried regarding Angelina Jolie.

Give it a look/listen. You can totally just listen to this as you toil. I was surprised how much I laughed.

Crazy YouTube Videos – Little Drummer Boy

crazy youtube videos
This is what I enjoyed, legally and with the full blessings of the Creator

This is a crosspost from another blog on which I write. This version is better. 

Last evening, upon returning from Friday mass, I was moved to pray for the fine people of our great nation.

Not really. I got home super late last night, and it being Friday, I decided, “Fuck it. I’m going to get insanely high anyway.”  So I did, and it’s legal here, so I’m not only a hero, I’m a great citizen.

So, a candy, a crazy potent brownie… (I’m not kidding. 500 mg THC brownie the size of 2/3 of a credit card. I have been nibbling it like a little mouse all week), a couple bowls of Animal Cookies weed (see the leafly review), AND infinite hits of the vape pen later (no half measures for this man)… I was super high.

I was so high that I decided to watch some crazy YouTube videos. I ended up  watching/listening to old Fleetwood Mac songs. Old ones, from when they were a hard blues band, all the way to the fluff of the Rumours era. It was lovely. I dozed, I floated. I lucid dreamed Stevie Nicks vs the Green Manalishi… it was lovely. THEN the above video played (the blessing/curse of autoplay) and I was ripped from revery, and faced with this guy.

Crazy YouTube Videos = A Metaphor For 21st Century Life

Ok. Watch this video while you read this. This guy, Marvin Fleer, is so amazingly information rich…. it’s like Finnegan’s Wake on drums. Here’s why.

  • His drum setup is insane. Look at all the cymbals.
  • His drums seem wedged between a built in china cabinet and… another built in china cabinet?
  • I don’t know how, but I am sure that his mom is no more than 10 feet away
  • Little Lies? You’re going to live drum to an 80’s pop song from Fleetwood Mac? That’s your showpiece?
  • He’s not great
  • He’s not terrible
  • He has shared this with the world.
  • Half a million people have watched this
  • Despite half a million in the audience, our man is obviously very alone (mom doesn’t count)
  • We have only been able to share videos of ourselves doing shit like this for a few years. This is a new phenomenon.
  • Sociology. This is. Read Bowling Alone.

Marvin Fleer, you are the shining exemplar of this day and age. You are the zeitgeist. Go forth and drum forever. There can be great wisdom in crazy YouTube videos.

 

 

Watch This Russell Brand Standup Now

Russell Brand Standup

Is Absolutely Brilliant

russell brand standup
This is a nice piece of work

I know, I know. Russell Brand. But stop it. He’s really really smart, and really really funny.

Messiah Complex is a manic ADD tour de force. Brand is no longer a drug addict, so there’s no longer anything mitigating the mania. And it’s brilliant. This particular Russell Brand standup is delivered almost in one long breath. It’s fast but he keeps tying it all together as he goes. He capitalizes on his own narcissism and compares himself to Gandhi, Che Guevera, Malcolm X, and Jesus. He succeeds wonderfully.

He weaves filthy sex stories with stories about tv appearances gone wrong, and drug addiction, well… addiction in general really. It’s wild and frantic. It’s heavily anglophile. There are some jokes that may fall flat because Noel Gallagher references don’t really scan in the USA, but never you mind. You’ll be laughing. He is a machine gun assault of jokes. If his charm does get you, simple erosion will wear you down to grudging admiration.

Let it be said that I haven’t been a Russell Brand fan before, although I did love Get Him To The GreekI watched this on a whim, while surfing YouTube. I’m so glad I did. It’s treasure. It’s a keeper. I have watched this more than once. Take a look at this clip (below). If that makes you laugh, you’ll like this. If not, then ok.

I’ve watched other stand up specials of Russell’s and they didn’t do it for me like Messiah Complex. I laughed my ass off throughout most of it. If you do as well, then cool. Maybe you’ll like the rest of my blog. It’s new still but it’ll fill up. Until it does, watch this russell brand standup now, or the monsters will eat you.

Conan and Letterman Trash Leno – SO GOOD

The 2010 Tonight Show Fight

The Enemy of My Enemy Is My Friend

I came across this gem during a late night YouTube spiral. I think I started off listening to a very engaging lecture by Christopher Hitchens, then somehow it was then Norm MacDonald, which then led to Conan O’Brien on The Late Show, back in 2010, right after getting suuuuuuper fucked by NBC and Jay Leno, over the Tonight Show.

 

I think the longer we just sit here, the more uncomfortable it’ll make Jay.

So begins the wonderful, groundbreaking, extremely intense,interview between two direct rivals. Conan and Letterman. This is around 2010/2011, while NBC is in a public relations death spiral over the Conan/Leno Tonight Show debacle.

Conan O’Brien goes rogue, and goes on The Late Show with David Letterman. This is after an extremely messy departure for Conan O’Brien, after more than 20 years with the network. Jay Leno, a man whose reputation as a nice guy is key to his success, is exposed as a… well, a showbiz asshole. He pulled a power play and won, but messily; making his bosses look bad.

Game of Thrones

Conan took his visible rage on the road, and on the Legally Prohibited From Being Funny On Television Tour, Conan was reborn. He somehow became cool, and not in the nerdy cool way he’s been forever. Real cool. Fonzie cool.

Conan and Letterman both share the sting of being outfoxed by Leno, and fucked over by NBC. The relish with which Dave listens to Conan rant is plain. “There we go! Now we’re getting somewhere!” He exclaims as Conan starts to let out some of his rage.

Conan seems almost diffident. He’s so wary of being used as a pawn again that his guard is way up. No need to worry. Dave treats Conan as a comrade in arms, and this whole interview is GOLD. It’s a solar eclipse level rarity, this confluence of rival late night legends. Watch the video. Conan and Letterman vs Leno. It’s totally worth it.
