For you guys, I have a treat... something from last Halloween!! The too cool-for-school-allstars (Arcade Fire, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Beck etc) bring spooky relief to the underprivileged youth of the world in Do They Know It's Halloween...

Which has Halloweeny material year-round, and is especially relevant these days.
Especially with a supposed pumpkin shortage!! Yaaah!

From the evidence at hand, though, I'm confident that there's some sort of sinister cover-up of a NASA mission to drop a 1966 Fisher-Price Chime Ball onto Titan, the largest moon of Saturn.
Take a listen and decide for yerself.

If only I were in a body cast for like 8 months, so I could devote the required attention to his site... as it is, I spend 10 minutes there and wind up here. You know... Kazakh design genius Vladimir Gvozdariki!
I bet Borat is pretty funny, but I'll take the real Kazakh mess any day!!
Thanks fousdanim blog!
I had cable TV for 3 hours today, whilst flying from Ft Lauderdale back to Boston, and in that span of time I was able to fall in love with Mr. Meaty. Which is available to us swollen American meatbags now, thanks to Nick TV.
And on airplanes with TVs in them.
Need funny puppets? Mr Meaty is for you!!!

Is he supposed to be a Sui Generis Hideous Egg Head?
Or Jack Kirby's The Wizard?
Your input is gratefully requested.
Also, on an unrelated note, please watch this sometime when you're sleep-deprived.

What's great about Hardware Wars is that it isn't long, and it really winds up looking like Star Wars. Or Sesame Street. Or any number of Mop-N-Glo ads I remember from my early youth in the 1970s.
Best of all, Ham Salad is a dead ringer for the guy from Steely Dan. There's something timeless about the way Ham gives up trying to kill the Steamtrooper with his electric drill, and just kicks the metal enemy over with his foot. It speaks of Greek epic poetry. Yes? No?!
Ergo, I stand and salute Ernie Fosselius, wherever he may be. No kiddin'. Let's all make cheap goofy movies!

O you adorable little moppets, quoth I, gazing patronizingly over the tops of my bifocals, as I lit up my pipe and shook the wrinkles out of my Wall Street Journal. Harrumph!
Then - Jeepers!! - my wig practically spun right off my head when I realized the Rubber Skeleton Countdown has already started!!!
THE KIDS ARE RIGHT!! IT'S ALMOST HALLOWEEN!!!
