I guess I’m behind the times on this one, which escaped my gaze a few years ago on the short animated circuit. I am absolutely loving it right now. Treating my cat for milial skin infections, and the sudden snowstorm has made me just want to snuggle up next to a fireplace and watch this on repeat. Viva Run Wrake. Brilliant.
There something so very correct about this piece. It’s transcendent.
So last Thursday, Thanksgiving, this event occurred rather spontaneously, but me and my beautiful, wonderful daughter Alexis enjoyed every second. The Laugh to End All Laughs. Griffen joined in as well, and at 1:51 mark, it turns into chase Mom, Rachel, the videographer. Pure joy!
Lex also just turned seven. Happy Birthday, Lexie!
Way back when I was using AOL, there was a chat room that broke into a conversation about who should replace Sammy Hagar in Van Halen. I immediately thought they should just give those duties to Michael Anthony. His backups were always top notch. This suggestion was met with a lot of agreement, and now we can hear just how cool that might have been.
This was recorded while Gary Cherone was touring with them, and for the performance of “Somebody Get Me A Doctor,” Cherone gave the mic to Anthony and assumed backup position. Wish I woulda been there.
I would be a clod if I didn’t have this on here. This is the coolest! Take one Awesome Movie, listen to its soundtrack, incorporate the beat-tastic, musical, and other transitory sounds into a mix. Then, to cap it off, show the clips from the sounds on a six-screen blender as your new creation plays. Instant classic.
…or a reminder ~ don’t forget to keep your security up to date. (Sigh), is that really George Lynch?
Video editor “hh” put this montage together, featuring a pretty solid arrangement of the best human movie villains. Set to an amazingly perfect song, East Hastings, he hits the mark squarely. Let the insanity begin…
