Let Your Mind Be Blown by the Impossible

M.C. Escher is known for making paintings and sketches of impossible shapes and tessellations that blow your mind. If you don’t know who he is, then figure it out before you make a fool out of yourself. He made an awesome staircase, an even more awesome pair of hands, and a super sweet waterfall. The latter is the one that we will be discussing today. Keep in mind that the things he made were impossible. Physically. Impossible. You can’t make shapes like that without making use of an optical illusion. The thing is…somebody did. As of posting time, no one has the slightest idea who the person responsible for this is, or how he made it. One thing is for sure, after watching this video, your mind will be blown so intensely that you will have to pick up pieces of brain and scalp from your neighbors toupée. Enjoy.

I've Always Loved Puppets

Ah, this video brings me back. It’s actually a recently released teaser trailer for a new movie coming out on Thanksgiving of this year. The thing is…it isn’t the movie it says it is at the beginning. Setting the stage perfectly for excellent jokes and gags, this trailer winds you up to watch a lovey-dovey romance movie until the main characters arrive. And boy do they arrive. Instantly recognizable, this teaser is sure to get you as excited as it did me.

Yes. I kid you not. It is another “Muppets” movie! I honestly can’t control my excitement. The muppets were the first show I watched as a kid. Screw “Barney” and “Power Rangers.” Those shows were for sissies. If my kids ever watch those shows, I will disown them, but not before I punch them in the face. They should be watching a show where everything is bad-ass: The Muppest. Hellz to the yeah! Thug life. Here’s the second teaser that was released this week. It mocks the commercial for “The Hangover: Part II” excellently.

Just as an added bonus and to get you more psyched up for the movie, here’s drumming legend Buddy Rich playing drum solos against Animal. Like I said…bad-ass.

Oh Japan, You've Done It Again

Everyone knows how awesome the Japanese are. Everyone also knows how strange they are. From real-life transformers in a game show to tentacle porn, these guys have it all. They are amazing with technology, but awkward everywhere else. The following video is an excellent example of why this is so. We all know of anime and stuff like that, but sometimes the shows get a tad strange. I don’t know if it is a cultural thing that we just don’t understand, or if everyone in Japan but a select few think the people that do this are freaking out of their minds. Keep that thought fresh, as the video you are about to see will solidify the case for you. If anything, it is an accurate rendition of what happened to me on my first kiss. I hate it when that happens.
