My favorite Charles Addams comic. Is this the best single-panel gag comic ever made? For me, it’s hard to imagine it ever having been topped. Everything about it, he’s executed perfectly. He’s got the angle just perfect so that Fenster can see the truck; you can tell how fast the truck and the car are going; he lets you see not only that the other car’s tilted enough where they’ve bought it, but into the other car. Look at how he draws the couple in the other car, some “respectable” wealthy couple, deserving targets in the Addams universe. It’s just such a perfect, perfect thing…
Hahaha, oh man, fuckin’ comics…
Jackie Chan and the marketplace fight from Drunken Master 2. My favorite fight scene. Especially the whole stretch around 4:15 when he realizes he needs more booze to beat up the bad guys.
Bruce Lee’s fight scenes from Way of the Dragon.
Most people who saw this video of Wolf Blitzer asking this lady if she thanked God for not having murdered her using one of his murder-tornados… most of them were struck by the fact she responded that she was an atheist and how that kind of made things a little awkward. But here’s the thing that’s more striking to me: even the baby seems to think Wolk Blitzer’s a fucking idiot. The baby’s just barely begun to cogitate, and he’s already got no respect for Wolf Blitzer. He’s looking at Wolf and literally— LITERALLY— going “Oh No Oh no" and trying to keep the microphone away from Wolf Blitzer. Why has CNN not taken the hint?? None of us like this guy, right?
Are there people who think Wolf Blitzer is good at being … whatever the hell he’s supposed to be? Who are those people? Where do they live? Were they recently in car accidents? Do they have Wolf Blitzer confused with someone else? Have they lost their glasses? Can we buy them new glasses? This isn’t even a conservative-liberal thing, I don’t think— don’t we all just as Americans think this guy’s just terrible? It’s not even, like, “Oh I disagree with his views" like with a FOX News guy— I could not care less what Wolf Blitzer’s "Views" on anything are. He just doesn’t seem very good, like, at anything, at least not anything television news related. Why hasn’t anyone put a stop to this? It’s not funny anymore.
I’ve never once in my entire life heard someone talk about how reassuring they found him in a crisis or his charisma or… anything. It’s certainly not like he’s got any wisdom from his advanced age— I refer you here to his classic essay “Why are some people running for president?" ("Presidential politics in the United States – always a bit weird. It’s why I love covering politics”). Is he giving old ladies granny-boners? I don’t know. I just really think CNN should have let the baby keep the microphone. The baby at least had gravitas.
Fucking Japan…: “These 3D printed dolls are cloned from real human heads. Danny Choo at Culture Japan visited the Clone Factory in Akihabara, Japan. There, his face was scanned and 3D printed and made into a totally creepy doll"
… Is this what it felt like when computers were just starting to happen and old people were like, “What is this Pong shit I keep hearing about? I can’t program my VCR. I’m afraid of the minorities. Why are you grabbing my purse? Waaah." I’ve never even seen a 3-d printer and it’s like… fucking Martian shit. I just know there’s some punk kid Steve Jobs embryo out there who’s going to get rich off this thing, and I’ll be sitting there in some cut-rate old age home, going, “Oh, if only I’d invested in Jibsplat! I’d be a rich man, today. The orderlies are abusing me and no one will help me.” It’s going to be pretty, pretty dark. (See also)
Gizmodo: “ A two-year-old toddler figured out how to use nail clippers to pick the lock on his eight-year-old sister’s door so that he could steal a stuffed animal at night.”
It’s 1 am and i can’t ever sleep because aaaaaah. On account of LIFE. (Also: TIME!). Further to that point, here’s what bra ads look like in France. You know? So: thanks, Pixar.
“… seeing heavy action as a playgoer and boulevardier. Since 1952 he has lived in Los Angeles. He is a bachelor by choice. He says he likes rare beef, strong coffee, baseball, the theatre, good writing and the sound of his own voice."
