I mean, it’s pretty obvious why this is awesome, right? I don’t think I really need to go into details here. I must say though, I’d love to have been on the scene when this picture was taken. Too geeky for words, yet so awesome it hurts a little.

The Return Of The South American Gnome

October 27th, 2008 by frankie23

Oh noes, it’s back! There’s been a second sighting of the South American stalking shorty! Okay, this video is even harder to make out than the previous one, but… geez, that walk. It’s just so wrong. Sends shivers down my spine just watching the damn thing stroll across the street. Well, stroll may not be the right word. More like skitter. Ugh.

For those who don’t remember, here’s the first sighting.

Kaiju Anatomy Lessons

imply fascinating, as the good Mr. Spock might say. Vintage images from a Kaiju art book showing anatomical cutaways of some of our favourite giant monsters. Apparently Godzilla’s flame breath comes from “a “uranium sack” and “nuclear reaction sack” that produce radioactive fire-breath and energize the body.” That’s pretty swift, if you ask me. Mothra and Anguirus are tucked below the cut. Follow the link to the originator for more, including Gamera!

“Are you a girl? Is it Hallowe’en?”

October 26th, 2008 by frankie23

This wonderful video basically shows the reality behind my yearly issues with Hallowe’en costumes marketed to women.

That being said, Sexy 1900s Steel Conglomerate Tycoon is awesome.

Bimbo The Birthday Clown

October 14th, 2008 by frankie23

Ah, childhood and the scars it leaves upon us. Back in the day when we still had local children’s programming, there was a British former clown who went by the name of Uncle Bobby, and his show was one of the most low-budget affairs you can imagine. This clip I present to you shows Bimbo The Birthday Clown, a giant cardboard monstrosity who would present birthday wishes to the boys and girls. One must remember, however, that what appears to us now to be laughable and quaint, to a young child was terrifying. The flapping ears, the rolling eyes of the giant with his jabbering mouth; the high-pitched cries of the yarn puppets, creatures I can still never look at without a modicum of discomfort. Truly nightmarish. Please, enjoy my memories laid bare for you, whilst I leave you with a transcript of the goliath’s song, which rings through my head to this day:

Bimbo Bimbo

I’m the birthday

clown they call

Bimbo Bimbo

On the Uncle Bobby Show

Bimbo Bimbo

I would like to say

you and you a very

happy birthday

“Happy birthday boys and girls”

Happy Birthday, indeed.

Panda-Z… OMGWTFBBQ?

October 12th, 2008 by frankie23

Just… wow. I have not seen anything this cracky in quite some time. A giant robot bunnygirl shoots a giant robot panda in the face with her rocket boobs. If you need more impretus than that to watch this clip, you probably are reading the wrong blog.

PG Porn: Nailing Your Wife

October 10th, 2008 by frankie23

James Gunn, director of my favourite horror film of 2006, Slither, has teamed up with Spike TV to produce a series of segments called PG Porn. These segments pair favourite actors with hot-ass porn starlets, in sex scenes without, well, the sex. This installment, which is already burning its way around the ‘net is called Nailing Your Wife, stars Nathan Fillion and the delectable Aria Giovanni, and is, quite possibly, the best damn thing I’ve seen all week. And I saw an awesome masturbation video the other day.

Food Songs

October 4th, 2008 by frankie23

This is awesome. Joss Whedon’s brother Jed, and his female companion Maurissa Tancharoen, co-writers of the wonderful Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, apparently write songs in the car on the way to get food, about the food they’re getting. Then, on Labour Day weekend, they got drunk, sat in front of a webcam, and sang them to us. Revel. I said revel!
