It’s Always Swinging in Eternia

Posted: 19th January 2012 by affehaus in geek stuff, humor, music

video of I’m Sexy and I Know it. As performed by He-Man. When the Masters of the Universe cartoon premiered, I was a little too old (I wanted to say ‘mature’, but honesty forbade) to appreciate it, and in fact, held it in a certain disdain. But this video totally validates the character’s existence. Not […]

Scratch-Built Carbon Fiber Violin

Posted: 7th December 2011 by affehaus in design, music, tech, things I need

From the How-to post at Boing Boing As to the ‘how-to’– quite frankly, I don’t really care. I just like the idea. And, I suppose it would be kind of cool to have one, just for appearance sake… but not cool enough for me to go to the effort of crafting it. So somebody buy/make […]

Comments Off on Muppet Rawk (III)

That is, the third in a series of Muppet Rawks. I’d never heard of the collections prior to now, but that’s because the rock under which I live doesn’t get a good internet signal. But these are selections from the third showing. Revolver, by Karin Madan

Epic Time Kill

Posted: 31st August 2011 by affehaus in cultural, humor, music

In bite size portions. A couple of guys– Nice Peter (no, I didn’t make that up) and Lloyd Ahlquist– have put together some really-pretty good videos; 12 to date. They’re called Epic Rap Battles of History… and they pit such luminaries as Chuck Norris and Abraham Lincoln against each other. And they’re damned funny, and […]

The Green Album

Posted: 16th August 2011 by 7ucyClark in cultural, geek stuff, movies, music

I love tribute albums. It’s fun when one artist pays homage to acts that may have influenced them, such as Metallica’s Garage Inc. It’s even more fun when the artist does music that’s not traditionally arranged in that performers chosen style (Richard Cheese and Me First & the Gimme Gimmes are two of my favorite […]

Music By Which to Navigate the Stars

The Adelaide Symphony (in Australia, natch) is bringing Sci-Fi classics to the pit. Stand by for action as the ASO launch you on a journey to infinity and beyond with favourite classics such as Holst’s The Planets and the theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey. The Orchestra takes off with John Williams’ music from Superman, […]

TV Commercial for Woolite

Posted: 21st June 2011 by 7ucyClark in cultural, music

This is a Woolite commercial; it’s titled Torture. And… it’s directed by Rob Zombie. This is such a well crafted juxtaposition of so diverse a set of cultural elements that I would go so far as to call it ‘beautiful’*.     *”beauty”, naturally being in the ‘eye of the beholder’… and in this case, […]

Epic Time-Kill

AV Club has compiled 170 references from the works of the Beastie Boys. That’s not the notable bit.  The notable bit is that they’ve researched and explained them. An exhaustive and invaluable resource. found via Scott Beale/Laughing Squid
