Aliens have landed in my underpants!

Aliens have landed in my underpants!
I don't want to give you the impression that I just sit around all day reading blogs and watching videos on YouTube, but...

A Petri Dish Of Culture
Greg Saunders of This Modern World says, "Call me old-fashioned, but I think we need to get in touch with our more traditional values." he is talking about this video, "Andy Griffith vs. Patriot Act." (I knew it! I knew Andy was a communist.)

A short video of 70's Toy Commercials includes Kenner's SSP Smash Up Derby Set, the Water Wiggle, and Slip n' Slide. Also a game made just for rich kids, Parker Brother's the Masterpiece Game, where kids get to buy and sell famous art at auction while trying to bankrupt each other. Oh, the joys of capitalism!

Don't be scared! It's only the The Mummy Dance from the puppet animation version of "Mad Monster Party." Also, remember to bring your hookah when you watch White Rabbit (Star Trek), via the Booberry Alarm Clock.

In case you were wondering, it's Ace the Bat-Hound and not Batdog, OK? I just thought that I would clear that up. Sheesh.

Space Ghost and Batmantis battle your mother to save Moltar, or battle Moltar to save your mother, or something like that.

In this increasingly toxic environment we call home, yet another substance has reached the attention of our vigilant scientists: EPA Warns Of Dangerous Levels Of Romance In Air.

Check out this really great movie that nobody has heard of, "personal velocity." You'll have to Net-Flix it, it's way too cool to show up on network television. (And no, It's not just because I have a crush on Parker Posey, Kyra Sedgwick, and Fairuza Balk. Really, it's a good movie.)

LucasLand: The original student film version of THX-1138. (What! You have never even seen the feature length version? Get thee to a video store, pilgrim.) Some remakes of films are better than others, this one is good in that it is very brief and amusing, Star Wars reloaded.

Showing more intelligence than his human counterparts, we have "Frankenstein: Mission Accomplished" and "Frankenstein Looks At Persia." Check out All of Frankenstein's videos.

This page, Onomatopeyas, has some of those great fight scene graphics used in the original Batman TV series. Not only BAM! BLOOP! CRASH! OOOF! KAPOW!, but also OUCH-ETH!, !OX?-ETH! and ZOWIE! (Uhmm, OX-ETH?) Via No Smoking in the Skull Cave.

Top of the Pops
Here is Herman Munster's hit single "Dry Bones." From the same episodes, Lilly Munster has a dream that Herman will become too famous, and dump her like Britney Spears dumped K-Fed Fed-Ex. Also, a music video featuring "Jet Screamer" from 60's TV show the Jetsons, "Eep Opp Ork Ah-Ah," via Lady, That's My Skull.

The Greatest band EVER, (well, almost) the 5678s, sing WooHoo. And needing no introduction, Bob Marley singing Redemption Song. For a change of pace, here is the same song done by Joe Strummer, via Becca.

If there was any doubt that William Shatner is god, than this rendition of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" will shatter an remaining illusions. The animation for the video is delightfully retro! His rendition of is just one of many of his unique, groundbreaking works in the field of pop music. You can't just listen to Shatner sing, you must experience him! Also, Shatner Singing to Lucas via No Smoking in the Skull Cave is not to be missed! Who knew that Storm Troopers were so musically gifted?

What's that great song in the back of your mind that you have forgotten about since you were knee-high to a algebraic equation? After the opening scene and during the titles from the film, "Meatballs." (Yes, I know it's a stupid song. I still like it.)

Wild Kingdom
This video, "Bunny Bunny Bunny," is just a short film of of a rabbit pushing a ball. (Don't scoff, he is probably having more fun than you are.) And speaking of rabbits, here is a life and death struggle between a rabbit and a snake. It appears to be a mother doe rabbit fending off an attacking Republican snake. In the world of rabbits, the does are under appreciated and do all the work. (No! Don't say it!)

In the "Humans are the Craaaziest Animals" department: What's funnier than a corporate executive on welfare? An Exploding Whale! (What? What? C'mon, he was already dead!) via Samurai Frog.

"The Feline Theocracy is a religious organization that worships God through his most perfect creations, cats. Who can argue with the divine elegance of this creature?" The Scratching Post

I know that this is only two days notice, but "National Gorilla Suit Day, which mysteriously falls on January 31 of each year, is perhaps the important holiday of the year. Every National Gorilla Suit Day, people of all shapes and colors around the world get their gorilla suits out of the closet, put them on and go door-to-door."

Damn the Man Department
A seemingly reasonable piece about a series of events blatantly misreported by the mainstream media. Fcuk The Corperate Media

Steven Colbert YouTube video's always disappear, so go check out"Steven Colbert with Conan" quick! another Colbert vid, "how to use a condom."

Who could forget this golden oldie, "Donald Rumsfeld Shaking Hands with Saddam Hussein." Rumsfeld just gets creepier by the decade, don't you think?

Watching television with friends and family may soon be regulated and taxed: The MPAA is lobbying congress to push through a new bill that would make the average American family room illegal. Big Brother Alert: Hollywood Style. Also: No More Internets Tubes? and RIAA Legal Ruling Could Shut Down The Internet.

Congressman Virgil Goode (R-VA) meets Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN). Goode had vowed to deport Ellison for being a Muslim. "Keith Ellison Meets Virgil Goode", a video that is perhaps more historically than visually interesting.

President Bush talking to Wolf Blitzer on CNN said, "I like to tell people when the final history is written on Iraq, it'll look like just a comma..." That pearl of wisdom spawned this video, Oh Momma, I Died For A Comma.

Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting: "Reporting on the ratings rivalry between the Fox News Channel (FNC) and CNN is often misleading--and almost always over-hyped." The Ratings Mirage

The most positive thing that I can say about Glenn Beck is that he actually makes Bill O'Reilly sound almost rational by comparison. Almost. Well, maybe a little bit. OK, not really. CNN's Glenn Beck Describes Himself As 'Mr. Oreo Cookie' On Martin Luther King Day.

As if you didn't already know this: "Many of the articles that appear in scientific journals under the bylines of prominent academics are actually written by ghostwriters in the pay of drug companies." Time to deal with medicine's dirty little secrets?

How is watching a Pat Robertson video clip like Katherine Harris video clip? You can't stop at just one! You have to see them all! Start your extra-conservative, Ultr-Christian viewing here: Pat Robertson is the Strongest Man in the World, Pat Robertson Says God Told Him Of 2007 Mass Terror Attack, Pat Robertson Gives His View on The War in Iraq, Pat Robertson on new Bishop, and Pat Robertson bashes scholars the same way the Nazis did in the 1930's. Give Pat your faith and leave and your brains at the door, thank you.

Sleestak Nation
in YouTube droid's OogieSCOD video "Sleestak Master Mix," he asks and answers the question, "While trying to explain to a friend what a Sleestak was, I found no decent footage of Sleestak on Youtube. This is now fixed. Sleestak rule!" I would agree. I mean really, if we have the technology to send a man to the Moon, why can't we get more sleestak videos? For example, what is missing in all of these "Land of the Lost" videos?

"Land of The Lost Intro," and "Land of the Lost Intro 2." (Fast forward to Electra Woman in this one) Land of the Lost & Electra Woman Saturday Morning TV. also, Land of the Lost meets Star Trek via the early 80s in "Can Kahn Khan?"

What's missing in these videos? Sleestaks! It is an uncomfortable truth that in this country that sleestaks are drastically underrepresented. We need an action commitee. I say that we elect Lady, That's My Skull as our representative.

Wow that Andie Griffith video was great. It's hard to believe there may have actually been a more idealistic time in this country.

Of course that's probably a niave thought. Corruption is and has been everywhere. Sigh...

Also have you ever heard the Joe Strummer version of Redemption Song? It's my favorite version, just wonderful.

Here's adress for the video on YouTube:
