My fiancee was showing me something the other day. It was a video that she loved in her younger days of the internet. Before Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, reddit, all of those things. Back when you had to actually search for quality (or lack of) humor on the internetz. Many hours were spent stumbling around the internet looking for things, and finding things. I can’t remember where exactly I first saw the video, and I know I posted about it before but I can’t find it. Anyway, I had to show her the infamous Benny Lava.
Benny Lava is superior to whatever you might be thinking. It’s a classic internet video. It’s not necessarily as wide spread as The Ultimate Showdown, but it’s far more known than Electronik Supersonik which I also had to show her:
Yes nostalgia and the internet go hand in hand. It’s almost like the internet was made for it.
Anyway, I’ve posted the above videos again because they are amazing and you have to watch them.
On the eve of the release of the greatest game on the Xbox 360 I re-present you this great video showing the game that re-defined everything. Ok, maybe I over-exaggerated a bit, but like the general theme of the video, Halo is all I Play-Oh. It was the reason I bought a Xbox, and an Xbox 360, and an Xbox One. Unfortunately with Bungie’s departure from the series, it probably won’t be a reason to buy any future Xbox that comes out. Halo 5 was my least favorite of the series, there was not enough focus on The Master Chief, there was too much “evolved” spartan battle that just didn’t fit the Halo universe in my mind, and more importantly, there was no sense of urgency in the game. In the original 3 it was one man against the Covenant and The Flood. Both are missing in 5, instead you’re helping some Elites to kill other Elites, and you’re all too politically correct to call each other by what you really want to say – Elites and Demons, no it’s Sangheili, and Spartan. Such a shame…
No real post today because I’m seeing Billy Joel at his Madison Square Garden residency. There’s not much else to say, except click this link here to watch the music video for the greatest song of all time.
I’ll let the photo above speak for itself. Tonight, 27 years ago terrorists took over the Nakatomi building in Century City California. Their target, $640 million in negotiable bearer bonds. That’s amazing, even the amount of money stolen still holds up today, it’s not some piss poor $100,000 or similar, it’s well over half a billion dollars. Damn Hans, you really did know how to pull it off.
As is Christmas Tradition, it isn’t really Christmas until you’ve watched this documentary, just like every 4th of July you must watch Independence Day, every year, around Christmas time, you must watch the hero cop from New York City single handedly stop a hostile take over.
To commerate this memorable event, there is even a music video. Because John McClane has also been involved in multiple similar instances.
The only thing I have to say about this is that people still use chatroulette? Really? Anyway, Steve Kardynal is still at it trolling the users of the internet with his take on (mostly) shitty pop songs. He makes them worth listening to.
Above is the Trailer for the Greatest Film ever made in the history of the planet.
Now, I don’t need a reason to post about Die Hard. But today, I have a very valid one. 25 years ago today, Die Hard was released to the world. The world at the time consisted of 21 only theaters, with the wide release coming next week. But this limited release showed the world the new bad-ass in town, Bruce Willis.
There’s so many things I can say about this film, I don’t know what to not say. So I won’t say anything.
Below is the greatest movie related song of all time:
What video can equal it? Well, certainty not the creepiest tree in the world. All Your Base, that is an equal. But it’s on the shortlist. The very short list. So short that I can’t even think of another video to add to it right now. Sorry.
