On Links That I Comment On Only Barely

Today I gift you with links to things I think you should know about and will, ideally, enjoy.  Frankly, I don’t have much to say about these videos, pages, columns of numbers, recurring charges, etc., except that they are enjoyable and would you enjoy them very much for me, please?  And if you do not enjoy them, please keep yourself quiet and don’t spoil it for the rest of the class.

1. Saturday Morning Watchmen

I’m putting this first because I’m pretty sure I already shoehorned it into a previous post.  If you grew up with 80s Saturday morning cartoons and/or like The Watchmen, then this is for you.  Otherwise… um… go eat a shoe?

2. Insane Clown Posse’s “Miracles”

First, you’ve probably seen this already.  But I didn’t know about this video until Brendan posted about it on Digital Sextant, so I’m not making any assumptions here.  I’m not making any assumptions because this Insane Clown Posse video and the accompanying song are, as the band name would indicate, insane.

Some sample quotes.

Fuckin’ rainbows.

Fucking magnets, how do they work?

Magic everywhere in this bitch.

3. SNL Parody of “Miracles”

What I love is that SNL was able to produce a video as nearly as professional as a multi-million dollar band.  Also, they perfectly capture the madness in the ICP lyrics. Also, this link was also cribbed from Brendan. Props to those who use them in theater in order to make a more convincing stage play.

4. Truthful Covers of Fantasy Novels

Or, more specifically, this is the blogger Mighty God King versus his adolescent reading habits.

I’ve read most of these books, and he’s spot on.

Please click here.

5. WTF, D&D!?

I’ve been reading this most of the day.  The whole concept is two guys, Zack Parsons and Steve Sumner, making fun of role-playing games.  I really wish I’d come up with this concept and then convinced Jason Myers that he had enough time to do this with me.

Instead, I’ll just have to read their often hilarious accountings.  Sure, they say Bro a little too much and make fun of autism and Asperger’s, but who doesn’t?  Say Bro, I mean.  Seriously.

Please click here.

6. WTF, Andrew?

And, no, I totally wasn’t lying about the lack of commentary.  Nothing to see here.  Please go and waste time on other sites today.  Regular programming will resume tomorrow.  Please turn off your computer… now.

    To be fair, is Insane Clown Posse really a multi-million dollar band? If so, who is buying their albums? Do you know anyone who owns Insane Clown Posse music or merchandise? I do not. Also, I do not understand the Insane Clown Posse. Perhaps because they are insane, and defy explanation. They seem unlikely gurus for getting in touch with the mysteries of nature. In short, I think they are fucking with us, which makes a parody of them almost redundant (though it *is* funny). Now I feel like I have to listen to more Insane Clown Posse songs so as to understand their purpose as artists, but I rebel against this notion as i would rebel against watching more professional wrestling so as to understand the character arcs of each wrestler. Gah, the mind boggles.

    And dude, Saturday Morning Watchmen is awesome!!

    I can’t really say multi-million dollar. I don’t know. I know that, according to wikipedia, they’ve had success. Whatever that means.

    I’ve actually listened to a number of their other songs on YouTube and, no, I don’t think they’re fucking with us. I think they’ve just slipped from regular insanity to the batshit variety.

    Also, they formed their own wrestling federation.

    I did wind up watching some of their videos, and I while I the dark carnival imagery intrigues me, their lyrics and overall moral thrust(?) of their songs is kinda painful. Inane Clown Posse is more like it. I’m not sure who their target audience is, but given their in theory target audience, Miracles seems so far out of their normal realm. All that said, I just rewatched Miracles, and it’s kinda growing on me. Best Insane Clown Posse song ever? It might be. Music is all magic. You can’t even hold it. Pure mother-fuckin’ magic!
