Drew Peterson: Untouchable Trailer



This movie looks untouchable.

Two of my favorite shows, together at last.

LIGHTS! CAMERA! ACTING!



I have no idea what's going on in this lost gem of a clip. All I know is "J.J. WHAT AM I DOING HERE?" is the new WWJD.

Paul the Mattress Man

Welcome to the Dollhouse

Poor Chicken

The Spielberg Face

Vintage Stunts



Best shots: the people dancing on a smokestack, and the last one. People look ridiculous in old-timey footage 100% of the time.

Nosewarmer


Brilliant idea from 1965.

Weekend

Dream of the 90's



From Portlandia, one of the funniest shows on TV. Season 2 starts January on IFC.

Chevy Chase Using Eyedrops For Some Reason



Good tune.

This is how I park pretty much every time I move my car in Brooklyn. Only in NYC.

"As Young As Yesterday," Korallreven (OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO)



Love this Swedish duo's debut album, An Album by Korallreven. Check 'em out.

Louis C.K. Outtake



This clip is not included in his upcoming online-only standup special: Louis C.K. Live at the Beacon Theater. Out December 10 for $5 on Louisck.com

It's Scott Weiland's Christmas Tour, Everyone!



It's like Buble, but with heroin.

Dolphin Lundgren



Absolutely ridiculous-looking, buuuuut pretty awesome.

"Lover's Carvings," Bibio



Bibio is one of those musicians with ridiculous stylistic range: from hip-hop to funk to electronica to acoustic, this guy can do it all while still putting his own distinct stamp on each song. Here's a personal favorite from his awesome 2009 album, Ambivalence Avenue. Also check out his 2011 EP, Mind Bokeh.

Will Ferrell in Old Milwaukee Ads







Not sure why Will Ferrell is hawking Old Milwaukee, but I like it.

In honor of the recent Lou Reed/Metallica collaboration, Lulu.

"County Line," Cass McCombs (OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO)



One of my favorite tunes of the year. This definitely is a "tune."

Redneck to Redbelly in the Infinity Pool



For all we know this was filmed last summer.

French People


Really cool-looking documentary. Really terrible titles. Both of them. I Believe I Can Fly? Flight of the Frenchies? Eesh. Stick to tight-ropes and jumping off things, not naming stuff.
