Too bad they didn't show the scene from Gigantor where they're in the Australian outback, on horseback, being chased by American Plains Indians. Because, yes, the Japanese creators of Gigantor really believed that Indians lived Australia and no I'm not making that up.
|The Daily Show visits the New York Times|
Why people don't like the news:
NEWS: If we take a side we can make people change their minds about politics.
PEOPLE: I'm sick of the news skewing their stories, insulting my political views and trying to con me into changing my opinion. I'm ignoring them.
NEWS: When we tell people about carnage and destruction and that all our viewers/listeners/readers going to suffer and/or die, they'll watch more.
PEOPLE: I'm sick of the news being about bad stuff all the time. I'm ignoring them.
NEWS: People love the Internet and if we make ourselves like the Internet people will love us too! Run those "President Obama Chews Bubble Gum" and "Jonas Bros Favorite Desserts You Can Serve Your Family" stories.
PEOPLE: Where's the reports on Darfur and the Middle East?! The news is just a bunch of goofy nonsense. I'm ignoring them.
|A clip from Detroit MEtal CIty|
I wonder if the live-action version is just like the animated version.
|'Unko San' Lucky Poop Anime|
I don't get it, if the suicidal, little, poop log wanted to kill himself why didn't he just flush himself down the toilet? Oh well at least this will get little Japanese kids ready for the acceptance of coprophilia.
Reginald and Geraldine sure have big eyebrows. Did you notice that it was the snake saying, "Eeek!"? It's not evil but I'm giving it five stars for being fun.
|Newsreader reads out the autocue template filler text on air|
This sounds like the video version of something you'd see on The Daily WTF (http://thedailywtf.com/). Fully, five-pointed figures for fabulously funny failure.
|Houston DTV Transition Cutoffs 6/12/09|
I would have loved to have seen that. I think I was taking a nap through the big switch over. There's nothing but crap on TV but I guess now it's got less static.
|Les Vampires (1915)|
Les Vampires (the people, not the movie) are sort of like a steampunk version of the kind of secret crime gang that James Bond or Batman are always fighting. The reason the girl in the bat suit is staggering around is because she's going to tell the hero all about Les Vampires after she's finished performing her ballet number but the guy you see in the tux has poisoned her. This film was a serial of about 10 or so chapters and the director had his film colored for each scene to give the audience some idea what to expect (outdoor scenes were green, murder scenes were red...). Just like today with previews fooling you into thinking a movie is something it's not, the movie posters for Les Vampires always showed the girl in her bat costume (as you can see she's only dressed up like that for 2 minutes for the entire series of films) to make you think this was a bizarre horror movie instead of a cops-n-robers movie.
|Mount St. Helens Erupts|
So who'd going to deal with the flying, zombie, laser sharks that sing about their dicks?
|Cat Answers the Phone|
I wonder what was going through it's little brain.
|John Lennon Apologizes To Jesus and Offended Public|
John was right they were more popular than Jesus Christ. People were a lot more interested in rock & roll than they were in religion. The Beatles could sell out every venue they played in while churches went half empty.
|BBC - Protest against Iran election results|
Didn't the Americans who were in Iran get taken hostage for like... years... the last time this happened? And wasn't Mahmoud Ahmadinejad one of the people pointing a gun to the head of one of those Americans? I don't think America CAN put reporters on the streets in Iran.
|Rammstein as told by cast of Nu Pogadi|
That's uh... pretty heavy on the evil.
|Civil unrest in Iran in response to the 2009 (invalidated) Election|
I saw this happen in the US once. The CIA overthrew the government of George W. Bush and used their control of the press to replaced him with a nearly unknown, foreign born, junior Senator from Illinois so the CIA could control the populous. Heh, I'm just kidding.
...oh crap. If I've just started a new truther movment I'm going to be really pissed off at myself.
|The Amazing Singing Machine|
Five evil little stars for bad lip sync and 8 track tapes.
|Kaguya lunar orbiter - crater Antoniadi|
Cute name. There's an old Japanese fairy tale about wood cutter who finds a glowing baby and names her Princess Kaguya raises her as his daughter. Eventually he finds out that her family lives on the Moon which she returns to.
Not an evil video but I'll give it five stars for being cool.
|raptor attack on an RC airplane|
Five stars for Rodents of Unusual Size!!
|GUNDAM in Odaiba, Tokyo|
They should build one of the ZAKU vehicles to stand across from it and have a stare down with.
Since we're voting for the evilness of the clip this one gets five stars. I'm surprised this show didn't kill off Darkstalkers entirely. But what really blew it for me is a teen-age boy has Felicia in his bedroom and he's telling her to get out.
|Batman the Animated Series: Beware the Gray Ghost|
The point this episode was trying to make was that actors like Adam West tend to find it hard to get work after their big success, even though their work is very influential. Just like the actor in the story who played The Gray Ghost, Al Hodge voiced The Green Hornet on radio and was a TV pioneer in the 1950s portraying Captain Video. In the late 1970s he was found dead in a seedy, rundown apartment filled with Captain Video collectibles just like The Gray Ghost actor. Also, like The Gray Ghost in the story, The Green Hornet was one of the real influences of the character Batman and they shares a lot of similarities.
