An honest question:
Is this comedy?
I laugh and laugh because I can't tell if this is a serious thing
or some completely bizarre and droll comedy bit.
Is it a training video for facilities managers?
The guy is a good juggler, but his delivery and sense of timing are just incredible.
Not like funny comedy ha ha incredible,
but more along the lines of Michael Scott from The Office doing a PSA.
I need your help.
Is this comedy? Or am I drunk again?
I'm getting a bit Zapruder with this one...back and to the left.
Xmas approacheth! Behold these Sketchy Santas.
Creepy factor on some of these = 1,000
Speaking of being drunk on Christmas, My pal BrianSleeeper pulled together a yuletide plea for St. Nick to visit Detroit in his new song "313 Santa".
Special appearances by Dave Feeny and Kristin Von Bernthal, in case you didn't buy the program at the door.
I am a big sucker for isolated music tracks and these isolated tracks from The Stones' "Gimme Shelter" do not disappoint.
I always LOVED that Merry Clayton backup where she's sooo into it that her voice cracks on the "Murder" line and somebody (Mick?) goes "Whoo!" in the background. They left that in the final version too.
A Frenchman walks into a bar with a parrot on his shoulder.
The bartender asks, "Where did you get that?"
The parrot replies, "In France, where there are millions of them!"
For all your dude holiday needs, I recommendThe Badass Gift Guide featuring everything from a $27 two-foot-long gummy worm to a $35,000 30th Anniversary Authentic Pac-Man Arcade Cocktail Table.
An apropriate level of Snark and Awe is associated with every item.
X-mas lights are up.

Remember the awesome Nickleback vs Chicken mashup?
This one makes me laugh almost as hard:
Click both play buttons at the same time
9eyes is a terrific Tumbleblog of found images from the Google Streetview cameras.
Mostly prostitutes and zoos.
I am a sucker for horrible DVD bootleg covers, but some of these take the cake.
Remember when Arnold Schwarzenegger was in Star Wars? And they said it was "Science Fiction Perform Distinctive?" Or remember Tom Cruise in 'Pepe Likes Tacos'?
One of the most overused phrases in cinema is "You look like shit"...a million of which are captured here:
"Zoom in and Enhance"
"We've Got Company!"
'Member that time that Biz Markie was singing "Just a Friend" with The Roots and Jeff Goldblum showed up to play the piano?
Jeff Goldblum is watching you poop.
Bill Bonds and Strohs:
Two things that made Detroit great in the '70s.
I am currently blarging at the newly opened Wolverine State Brewing Company Taproom. It is hidden behind Big George's Appliance Mart on Stadium and features a big open industrial room where they have beer and free wi-fi. There are currently 27 dudes in here and one lady bartender.
This could become a regular hangout.
I can't tell if this would make me early or late, but I am pretty into this Time Traveler's Calendar:
A terrific bit of the "comedy" is Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon performing an epic Michael Caine-off.
"Let me finish"
Black Milk Clothing has these snappy Artoo swimsuits for sale.

Docking Bay 94:
Apparently Dubai is totally the place for photoshooping Star Wars ships and droids into actual locations.
Do you want to see a video of David Lee Roth doing all of the big scissor kicks evar?
(I obviously already know the answer to this.)
Want to know what kind of kooky shit people are saying while buying comics at their local comic book store?
[While buying a particularly busty $120 Catwoman doll...]
The site Our Valued Customers can give it to you in excruciating detail.
BallDroppings sounds like a brutal medical condition but is actually a fun game that may in fact consume hours of your life...
...y'know, arranging your balls.
A terrific live "Mash Up" of the theme from Mad Men with Nat King Cole's "Nature Boy"
(which some may only know from the movie "Moulin Rouge").
I don't really go in for the golf, but this guy lays it out in a way that any of us could understand.
If any of us were Stephen Hawking
This tune by Danni Harrison (with Joseph Arthur and Ben Harper in a band called Fistful of Mercy)
sounds like one of the songs John and Paul would have tried their damnedest to keep off of "Let It Be"
A serious rocker.
Everybody keep Jeff Lynne away from this shizz.
So long, Sparky
Say hi to Ernie for me
