Comedy Gold: Reggie Watts

Reggie Watts is one of the funniest and most original comedians I've seen bust onto the comedy circuit in the last few years. I say this like I'm a seasoned comedy scout, which of course I am not. That statement is in fact based on my limited scope watching and paying attention to standup. Who doesn't like a good giggle now and then? No? Sorry. Soverysorry.

I Just Discovered That....

...Brandon Flowers of The Killers looks a hell of a lot like Anne Hathaway as a man.

Slowed Down: Baby Laughing

OK, today is officially slowed-down video day. I don't care. I defy you not to laugh at this. I dare you. This baby is like the spawn of Satan crossed with Danny Devito, mixed with Mr. Potter, and nicely garnished with a gingery splash of Scut Farkus.

"Aw, what's wrong? You gonna cry? Cry, cry for me crybaby! Cry!" - the Farkus (and yes, his name is Scut. Scut!)

Slowed Down: Reading Rainbow

Check this slowed-down version of the "Reading Rainbow" theme. Hilarious, but also slightly terrifying. I imagine Wild Bill from Silence of the Lambs rocking the mangina to this one.

Oh Baby

Music I Love: Gayngs

I am REALLY digging the debut album from Gayngs, called Relayted. The group features members of Bon Iver, Megafaun, The Rosebuds, Solid Gold, Doomtree & more. The disc is a super-groovy, sultry yet breezy affair replete with wildly catchy vocal and multi-instrumental melodies that'll fly up your ass and into your head to make themselves at home in the cozy hearth of your domecase. Beware: said melodies may sip hot toddies and smoke doobies.

Nicolas Rage

"Despite all his rage, he's still just Nic-o-las Cage"(sung to the tune of "Zero," by Smashing Pumpkins). Best part kicks in at :50, but seriously: this whole thing is worth your precious time.

Leslie Nielsen's Ghost Says, "Fuck You, Nordberg"

Dead and loving it? I hope they have slapstick in heaven.
