What The Hell Happened To Biff Tannen?

Remember this guy? Who could forget, right? What with HBO showing the Back to the Future trilogy every few days. Well below is a video of Tom Wilson performing a song about people always asking him question about being in Back to the Future.

When It Comes To My Baby, It Don't Matter If She's Black Or White.


Well, I may have just found me new favorite website. As you will see, this site is either hilarious or in very poor taste. You will need to judge for yourself. So if you are ready, let's dive into the lives of Sally & Johnny and find out why they say "Black People Love Us".

I will leave my opinion in the comments section of this post.

Train Engineering

I like this one. What can I say, it surprised me.
"A group of kids try their hand at a spot of engineering on a railway line."

The Old Accent Question...

My wife and I have this "discussion" often. Well finally there is a Quiz to settle the question once and for all. Here are my results.

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland
 

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

The Inland North
 
The South
 
The Northeast
 
The West

So Who Wants To Be A Rock Star?

The Myth Of The Rock Star And Of The Need To Sign-up For A Major Recording Label

This is a good article about the music industry and the truth about being that brand new sensational rock star. Some of you may know these truths already, but its still a good read and quite informative.

Here's an excerpt:

I'd like to tell you a short story. You've probably heard it (or a variation of it) a thousand times, but bear with me. See if I get any of the details wrong.

It's the story of an idealistic Kid (or Kids) from out in the sticks (or the ghetto, or the trailer park, or the suburbs).

The Kid's got the magic: he sings like an angel. He plays guitar like the very devil. His lyrics are deep and meaningful and poetic.

So the Kid's playing a gig one day, right?

Maybe at some roadhouse, or some smoky nightclub. And Mr. Big, the head of a major record label, just happens to be hanging out in this roadhouse or this nightclub, maybe on his way to and from one of his posh mansions or something. He hears the Kid. And he recognizes true genius.

After the Kid's done, Mr. Big comes up to him. "Kid, you got heart," he says. "How about you come out to Los Angeles and make some records for me?"

So the Kid comes out, with nothing but his dreams and his guitar, and records an album.

It sells a billion copies.

Everybody hears the Kid's music and is touched by it. He starts dating a beautiful-but-sensitive supermodel. He wins a Grammy. He makes a few more albums, and finally retires out of the public eye with Mrs. Kid (neƩ Supermodel) and the little Kids -- either to an old converted manorhouse in England or a ultramodern home in Laurel Canyon -- to live in bliss happily ever after.

The end.

Sound familiar? Of course it does.

I Want One!


We had a VW Bus when I was a kid. But this thing is amazing. Go to the page and wait for the little movie on the bottom right to play. Funktional! This would be perfect to ride home in.

Verdier - New way of living and driving.

Can We Kiss?


Wow, here is a great indie short film. You must check it out. I don't know what else to say.

On S'embrasse?

Aircraft Safety Done Right

Whenever I fly, I always feel kind'a bad for the flight attendants while they stand there giving the safety speech. They must hate that part. First of all, they have to do it like every time the plane is going to take off. They must know they look silly with those fake smiles and jazz hands while they teach us how to use something as difficult as a seat belt.

Remember the old standard aircraft safety cards? Well, here they are with a new twist. I have to use these on the Funkship flights from now on.

Yeah, What If They Had Lived?

Ever imagine of all those great (or in some cases not so great but famous) music legends had lived? Yeah, me neither but here's someone ho did, and they live to tell about it.

Thriller?

OK, don't really know what to say about this one. I have never been to prison, nor do I claim to know what its like, but I never would have expected this.


I found it at OMFG-WTF.net. There, the writer claims...

The 1500+ inmates of Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center in Cebu City, Philippines, do a lot more than just languish in a cell. They have livelihood programs and personal savings accounts, allowing them to earn and save money for legal fees or the families they left behind. Perhaps even more impressive is what they do with the rest of their time: rehearse and perform elaborate parades and dance numbers, like the recreation of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” seen here.


You can check out more routines here.

Don't Commit ATARI-Kiri

That's right kids! Today the world seems flooded with so many different kinds of video games for so many different kinds of people from young to old. I love video games, especially the action/adventure ones, the shooters and even the skateboarding ones, (there's a lott'a cool sh*t you can do in Tony Hawk).

However, when I was a kid, my mother was anti-TV so needless to say, I didn't have ANY video games, (I'll get you yet, Mom :). I still don't have any type of game console like the PS3, (hint, hint, kjay), but I do play games on the PC. All the true gamers out there just rolled their eyes. Anyway, you can imagine how heart broken I was to see just what I missed out on when I was a kid. Loosen up your paddles and keep your eye on that little dot, cause here we go!
