Switching things up from music once again- in this Monday’s edition we dive into my YouTube “favorites” list. The sheer amount of videos posted on YouTube is still mind-boggling to me, as is the fact that virtually any media I’ve experienced in my 23 years is on there in some form or another. So, come with me as I take you on a guided tour of the awesome videos I have deemed entertainment worthy, possibly at three in the morning and drunk.
Mystery Science Theater 3000- Best of “Werewolf”
This show blew me away as a kid. The premise is a guy and his two puppet/robot friends watch extremely bad movies and have a running commentary making fun of it the entire time. Also, their on a spaceship. The show was at its best when making fun of cheesy cable movies, such as the 1996 masterpiece “Werewolf”. If your not familiar with the show YouTube is a great place to start, considering half the series is broken up in 10 minute chunks for your viewing pleasure.
“Boy their establishing the hell out of this building”
“It’s economical not to have a story line because than you can just film people saying things”
Curb Your Enthusiasm
“Curb” is still one of the best comedies on TV and it just introduced the character Leon last season. The show kept him on as the roommate to main character Larry David this season and its all the better because of it. This video collects the best of his moments from season 6.
Some NSFW language
Bust A Bucket
In honor of the NBA season starting tomorrow and the Trail Blazer fanboy in me, here is the early 90’s classic “Bust a Bucket”, about a young fans mental illness and his decent into Blazer-fueled dementia. (Not to be confused with the oh-so-much-funnier in retrospect “Can I Get A Headband” featuring the corpse of Bonzi Wells and the Jail Blazers)
Norm MacDonald on “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”
Just watch until the 6:50 at the very least. Berating Carrot Top is always funny.
