10 Coolest Things I Found On YouTube – ‘Stuff I Made’ Edition: 09/04/2011 – 29/09/2011

enjoy gettin' ripshit on RUM HAM? why not get ripshit and peruse my videos? why not do BOTH? why ask why? as the world keeps trippin' to the D-O double G, it's a doggy-dogg world.

it’s been quite a substantial gap in-between YouTube posts, and in the intervening months i’ve naturally amassed more than 10 nuggets of YouTube gold. but in keeping in line with the concept of this post, i’ll whittle it down to my fav 10. shit’s hard cos i’ve seen about a thousand million billion clips since then, but neglected to post it up. such is LIFE: when you got multiple focuses, the BLAUG always tends to suffer. especially in the “music journalism” category. which is why i like having YouTube posts to fall back on: it’s easy to crap on about random shyte plus it stimulates my writing mind. oh, a fair few of these are my own edits & uploads. actually…all of em are lol (clearly i’ve had the time). had enough reading yet? IT HAS ONLY JUST BEGUN…BEGun…begun…un…

RUM HAM!

i suppose i better start with the most recent thing tickling my fancies, the illustrious indestructible all-encompassing RUM HAM. it recently made a splash (ha) on episode 2 of the new season of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia. after i watched it, i quickly hit teh ‘Tube to search for clips to poast onto my Facebook (cos it’s something i like to do…alone…on a Saturday night…in between faps). unfortunately the only clip i found was recorded via camera phone (long the bane of YouTube’s existence). not good enough. so i swiftly upped the damn clip MYSELF. it’s now racked up near 7.5k views within a few days, re-posts, blogs & even this video response of some brave souls actually making & tasting their own rum ham. *******SADLY THIS VIDEO WAS TAKEN DOWN BY FOX JUST AS I WENT TO POST THIS BLOG :/ THERE MIGHT STILL BE CLIPS OF IT ON TEH ‘TUBE, BUT MINE IS OFFICIALLY GIZZONE. SORRY Y’ALL.

MIND BULLETS

i also recently got hooked on Hung (that sounds…vaguely like i’m hangin off the tip of..nevermind), a show about a male prostitute doing it tough in post-economic-collapse Detroit (stars Thomas Jane as Ray). started on season 2 on the weekend and couldn’t help but cackle at the introduction of Charlie, an experienced and somewhat of a “Yoda pimp” to the main character of Tanya (Ray‘s pimp). here he discusses a pimps methods, mainly the use of mental darts (or bullets, or i guess any other projectiles).

DIDN’T You!??!!!

during what i will call “Teh Silent Interims From BLAUGations”, i managed to re-watch the ENTIRETY of The Pretender. that’s 4 seasons and two TV movies. i’ve long held an admiration for the show, and moreso the classic characters within it. back in the 90s during its run, i was pretty much obsessed with it from week-to-week. Sydney‘s vocal tone (that of Patrick Bauchau) was also a constant point of imitation via myself, my older brother and my best mate since i was in kindergarten lol. that is to say, the show was a big part of my life for a minute. and it was refreshing to revisit the series and see it through more adult contemporary eyes, allowing me to come to a fuller appreciation of the complex tapestry that is The Pretender. ANYways, another go-to line i’d love reiterating IRL was Jarod’s (the inimitable Michael T. Weiss) sometimes-use of “DIDN’T YOU!?!?!?!” when serving up a wrong-doer. admittedly this didn’t occur as often as i thought it did, but often enough that it left a mark.

SHOOT, You CLOWN!

Bud Spencer and Terence Hill have appeared in this list before. and if i let myself, they would DOMINATE every single YouTube-centric poast. however, i’ll restrain myself to just this golden clip from their CUHLASSIC 1984 flick Double Trouble where Terence goads a mercenary.

Chicken-Man! You Got It

the original 1994 Stargate film (on which the long-running TV shows are based) has plenty of meme-worthy moments. one such occasion involves Kurt Russell (the original Jack O’Neill) asking the locals of Abydos where “the chicken-man” went (i think in reference to Daniel Jackson). the clip takes it all out of context, of course, and just looks like random chicken-related craziness.

AUUWOHHOOOOH

re-watched The Matrix trilogy back-to-back-to-back recently for the first time in years, and glad to say they’ve improved over time (although Revolutions still remains the weakest installment). however, watching things now is vastly different to how i viewed things years ago. i see MORE. i get engaged by the smaller things. in this case, it’s The Oracle‘s smoker-heavy voice making one strange-ass noise in-between sentences that REALLY captured my attention lol.

THERE You Are!

sayin it now so it’s official: Vampire’s Kiss is my favourite Nic Cage film of all-time. no doubt.

Goodbye, Mr. Spatula!

i’m still in the process of upping more funny-ass clips from Ed, this one features local magician Stuckeyville Stan making Ed’s spatula disappear in an overly cheesy manner (cheesy with a wink, tho).

Denzel Thinks You’re Kinda Funny

finally got around to watching Deja Vu, and unexpectedly enjoyed it more than i thought i would. you had a pretty cool sci fi story goin, and a good ratio of “Denzelisms”. i present to you, exhibit A.

EEUHWAH!

the very first meme-ish clip i ever uploaded, was like a fucking thunderbolt from the sky. i was compelled to put it out there. it’s only a few measly seconds, but it’s got amazing replay power. the clip in question is of Arnie on the run, early on in Total Recall. and as he’s fleeing, he bumps a random cunt out of the way, and that random cunt (whomever he may be, Buddha bless him) emits a very RANDOM reactionary noise. one you wouldn’t expect to hear when one is being bumped.

and with that, hopefully this BLAUG will see more regular care. i’d also like to switch over to my own permanent URL too at some stage before the year is through, or perhaps as a New Year’s resolution. BIGGER N BETTER, BABY. cheers.

Zed shuts up ducks

a tender moment between Zed and his lover Laura from “Police Academy 3”.

Bernie Mac – Motherfucker

R.I.P. to the late great Bernie motherfuckin’ Mac. i recently watched Spike Lee’s The Original Kings Of Comedy doco/live show last night for the first time, and in between dying from laughter, i thought Bernie’s sign-off to the whole show: “…and i’m OUT motherfucker!” was fucking gold. his little thoughtful addition post-show was also pretty poignant now that he’s no longer around.

Yung Humma – Lemme Smang It (feat. Flynt Flossy)

i’ve recently been passing this particular video on to friends via Fayzebuuk, sofar all the fellas seem to love it, and all the ladies seem to think it’s the most disgusting thing in the world. i, on the other hand, think it’s the work of absolute genius. definitely on a Club Noir level.

What Mike Tyson Wants In A Woman

…other than himself, of course.

Arnold Schwarzenegger – Fuck You And Me

FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK.

Rattrap – We’re All Gonna Die

the only Transformer in history to sound like a wise guy New Yorkian punk. his catchphrase is legendary as he uttered it on what was supposed to be a children’s show, but was in fact one awesome sci fi saga known as Beast Wars. all due props to Scott McNeil for voicing this classic character.

You Got Any Cigarettes?

regular? or menthol? *wink*

Hawaiian Shirt Day

YYYEEAAAAHHHHHHH. yknow the best thing about Office Space? the extras they used as the nameless silent co-workers all look so convincingly depressed and soul-crushed, it just adds more realism to the lame moment you just witnessed (which i’m sure goes on in a lot of places of employ, thankfully i was never subject to dress codes allocated to specifics days).

Ruben Lísias & Paulo Bastos – Achy Breaky Heart (Live Acoustic Cover)

irrationally inspirational. my long-held opinion that you can make an acoustic cover out of any song out there and make it sound sincere n heartfelt kinda came to fruition.

Lady And The Tramp – The Siamese Cat Song

riiiight, and i thought i only dreamed this happened…tha FUCK IS THIS SHIT?!? i remember being utterly in love with the film as a child, but even back then…there was something slightly unhinged about this scene. rubbed me the wrong way. years later, however, it is required stoner viewing. oh, and it may be a little racist. just a skoche. a tad. a TOUCH.
