House in da’ House.

Posted in film, monsters, New York, tubes with tags , , , on July 2, 2009 by kevin y.

One of my favorite unintentional laugh riot horror films is both from Japan and the 70’s.

House (or Hausu) is playing at the Asian Film Festival and do to the fact that it is hilarious and amazing, keeps getting shows added.  I implore you to go see it or netflix it. There are really no words to describe it…SO, as I often do, I will let youtube do it for me.

Both clips are worth a watch and will most definitely guarantee this movie a low-numbered spot in your queue.

Here’s the trailer:

And, Here’s an extended clip:

Interesting BBC special on monkeys who steal booze from beach dwellers and have developed a drinking culture uncomfortably similar to our own.

Miley Cyrus has a big Radiohead.

Don’t ask me how I found this story or the source. I really don’t read the celeb news blogs. Merely another example of the places boredom-induced internet surfing can take you. (I think i started this string of “clicking into interweb oblivion” with a search on St. Patrick.)

ANYWAYS!…apparently at the Grammys, Kanye and Miley were both given proper “fuck you” attitudes from the members of Radiohead after they both requested to meet and hang with the band. Kanye remembered he hates white people and let it slide and Miley went on some radio station to bitch:

Americas Princess

America's Princess

“I’m like, these are the people I really want to meet. I’d freak out. They’re my rock gods. These are the only people that I would cry over…My manager asked and said, ‘Miley’s really obsessed. And they were like, ‘We don’t really do that.’ “I left ’cause I was so upset. I wasn’t going to watch. Stinkin’ Radiohead! I’m gonna ruin them, I’m going to tell everyone.”

Well US Weekly decided to crack this extremely exciting story! You better believe it. They asked Mr. Yorke what he thought about Miley’s temper tantrum, receiving only the statement, “When Miley grows up, she’ll learn not to have such a sense of entitlement.”

Pretty badass I will admit…but a couple points…
First, Radiohead talking poorly about someone else with an ego?…That’s like Donald Trump telling Carrot Top to get a haircut, wait what? That’s a terrible reference and weak analogy…or maybe…like…like Elijah Wood telling Clay Aiken to “man up!”…..terrible. Jesus, this is hard. You get the idea, it’s fuckin’ hypocritical.

Second, those Brits better watch what they say! Wars have been started on lesser offences. I mean when you insult the Princess of America like that, we have no choice but defend her honor, and OURS!

And lastly, if you don’t believe me (I’d simply be amazed to find out you were still reading this), here is the link to my infallible source: dlisted.com.

Oregon Fail.

In the spirit of cliche nostalgia, I found a site where you can play Oregon Trail for free.  I used to think I was quite the wagon master, but here is what happened on just my first river crossing…

Apparently, oxen and my friends cant swim.

Apparently, oxen and my friends can't swim.

I lost 75% of my food, some best friends, and worst of all, 3 of my 4 oxen!  I mean, its no Donner Party, but still, ouch. Here’s the link, if you want to play.

Little boys still don’t scare me.

Google maps has saved me a ton of stress while living in New York.  I can find my way around the boroughs, get train times, and now even quell my fears of dying in a nuclear strike on midtown!

This website can show you the thermal damage of a nuclear explosion in any location on google maps.

This picture shows the theoretical destruction caused by a 15 kiloton “Little Boy” landing on midtown Manhattan. As you can see, I’d be quite safe in ol’ Greenpoint…that is until the cancer set in.
