the most recent smanger from the progressively-creative Turquoise Jeep camp is a bit of a family affair, one for the long-time fans who’ve been Keeping The Jeep Ridin’ since jump. the song is, of course, a fucking smash hit. the treat is however seeing the full TJ family on-screen for the first time in a while, marking the re-appearance of once-thought lost member, Slick Mahony. rumours kept running rife about Slick’s whereabouts or why he seemed to be absent from all recent Jeep videos (official & behind the scenes). but here he gloriously re-emerges in true Slick style, and joined by cameos from Whatchyamacallit, Pretty Raheem & Tummiscratch. on top of that we’re treated to undoubtedly one of THEE hawtest video chicks they’ve ever given us, and even more random sullen-looking males to add to the peripheral portion of the Turquoise Jeep universe. check out the inspiration for the song below via F Dot Floss.
and now peep the gloriousness that is WHY I GOTTA WAIT??.
as an added bonus, i’ve taken the liberty of creating my own photo gallery for the vid. as well as a meme-worthy shot of “Nate” that i hope does the rounds on the Internetz. enjoy.
BY SLICK MAHONY, THEY’VE DONE IT AGAIN. this song has been out for a minute, but finally Turquoise Jeep‘s own Pretty Raheem gets to shine in full multi-coloured suit music vid glory, bustin out them Guy/Aaron Hall dance moves (with a lil Kid N’ Play foot-smackin for good measure), complete with a requisite verse from founding father Flynt Flossy. ride that jeep all the way to T. Jeep Street and give it the fuck up for PRETTY.RA.HEEM.
mo’ YouTube, mo BLAUGIN’. go forth and be entertained, y’all.
You Just Pulled Landscaping Duty
Ben Stiller‘s finest roles (imo) have always involved him rockin the handlebar ‘stache. this would be his finest in that mode.
NOW WE’RE FCKED
so not too long ago, a YouTube user with the name HighVoltageChrist came up with a video meme/fad vid that is quirky than the usual shit (think how viral the Antoine Dodson shit became, but on a smaller scale). anyways the basic premise is: use footage from the old Mario & Luigi cartoon show to shimmy the convo in a way that ends with one of the characters uttering an expletive. except the editing has to be precision in a way that makes someone SOUND like they’re saying “FUCK”, but in actuality is some jumbled up version that ranges from “FGLUP!” to “FWUACK!”. immediately after this comes a cut up clip of Luigi jauntily strolling singing the word “KOOP/COO” over and over to the melody of some random song (at the behest of the individual editor, there are many others). this one apparently is the original one that started this (sofar) underground YouTube fad/trend.
Nicolas Cage Losing His Shit
Nic Cage, i feel, is a somewhat misunderstood and slightly underrated actor, but definitely one of the best of our generation. and i think that’s the case cos it’s only when he chooses to play tweaked characters (some that are outright psychotic and possibly insane) when we see the depth of his talent. here, lovingly cut together, is a collection of just some of those special moments.
Dawson Leery – Asshole For Hire
i was a BIG Dawson’s Creek fan back when the show first started, and remained a loyal soldier throughout its entire 6-season run. yes everyone knows half the show’s appeal is the very epitome of cheese. however, the hook that differed this show from any kind of teen soap comparison were the characters themselves and how they communicated. long story short: they all talked like smartass psychology professors (and heavy on the sarcastic self-fladulation when it came to Pacey). i never, not once, while watching the show facepalmed or groaned at its lameness, cos it never really was. it was enjoyable, and should now be regarded as vintage television for ppl who grew up watching it. it’s got this nostalgic glow to it, is what i mean. but what happens when its star and namesake can’t shake being labeled as The Dawson? he goes on the offensive. this clip is but one of many that resulted when James Van Der Beek took over funnyordie.com for a week recently. another golden outcome from this takeover was: JamesVanDerMemes.com (if u love Der Beek you’d be a fool not to click).
SAD FORRR YOOOUUUUUU
i remember clicking onto random eps of Dragonball Z as a kid and witnessing those long extended-ass fights between Vegeta and Frieza, but it was all a bit too schizo for me to get into. i do, however, remember Vegeta‘s hectic-ass yelling and screaming of everything that comes out of his mouth.
Flynt Flossy & Whatchyamacallit – Not Your Professor, But Your Prosexxor (feat. Pretty Raheem)
as i had suspected, in a recent interview with Turquoise Jeep Records founder and artist Flynt Flossy (aka F Dot Floss), it was revealed that the earlier Jeep tracks were produced by fellow artist Whatchyamacallit. i call this the pre-Tummiscratch era. i only held that suspicion cos there was a notcieable increase in the recording quality of the vocals, the flow of the emcees and the overall production of the music. clearly Tummiscratch is the man with the magic touch, producing smangers like Slick Mahony‘s “Sex Syrup” & “Go Grab My Belt“, Flynt‘s “Cavities” (feat. Pretty Raheem & Watchyamacallit), Yung Humma‘s “Lemme Smang It” and a few other album-only cuts that aren’t on YouTube. but even Tummiscratchless, the Jeep does impress. this is an early rough cut of the song “Not Your Professor, But Your Prosexxor” which appears on the newly-released debut album “Keep The Jeep Ridin‘” in a more polished form. most, if not all the sounds i recognise as Fruity Loops/FL Studio presets, but it doesn’t matter cos the song is still smangin.
Kameron Corvet – Know These Things:Shouldn’t You
a decent acoustic cover of an underrated Maxwell song from his 2nd album “Embrya“.
Snuff Box – Boyfriend Scenes
yet another short-lived British sketch show that, judging from this clip, must be seen.
when i was but a child, one of my aunties fed me a styrofoam cup. haven’t seen her since.
Stella – “Bar”
probly one of the most surreal comedy troupes around (i think anything with Michael Ian Black is fantastish anywho). oh ye, the bar owner (aka the guy who can’t cum) is H. Jon Benjamin, currently voicing the title character in the animated hit “Archer“.
i wanna say “just when u think they couldn’t do it again”, but i had strong faith in Turquoise Jeep to deliver nothin but the HITS, boyeee. in celebration of this latest release, Slick‘s “Go Grab My Belt“, Turquoise Jeep Records have finally released their full length debut album available for purchase wherever you can find it on the internets. it includes such classics as “Lemme Smang It” (Yung Humma & Flynt Flossy), “Shuyamouf” (Flynt Flossy & Whatchyamacallit), “Cavities” (Flynt, Whatchyamacallit & Pretty Raheem) & Slick Mahony‘s eponymous debut single “Sex Syrup” (feat. Yung Humma), as well as a bunch of never-before-heard monster tracks in waiting. majority of the production is skillfully handled by DJ Tummiscratch (you know which songs are his depending on if he gets the obligatory “A TUMMISCRATCH BEAT” shout-out at the beginning of a song).
one thing i’ve come to admire a LOT about this clique (and it’s not just the pitch-perfect delivery of parody, satire AND catchy-ass songs) are the individual dances that come with the songs. Turquoise Jeep deliver the complete package, and i find myself listening to THEIR shit more than the contemporaries they’re artfully lampooning. if ur not already, i think it’s about time to jump on the wagon cos these dudes are about to blow THEE fuck up. like beyond just internet YouTube fame. i can feel it.
last week i was exposed to the utter genius that was Yung Humma and “Lemme Smang It“, which featured Flynt Flossy, one of the most bizarre take-offs of a commercial rapper i’ve ever seen, yet his look and sound and everything doesn’t seem to be BASED on anyone lol. everytime i see him on my computer screen i am in awe. now i can add Pretty Raheem and Whatchyamacallit to the list of Turquoise Jeep artists who are kickin more ass and makin cooler songs than the big-name counterparts they’re parodying. now open up wiiiiide for mo cavities.
Chinese Folk Song (feat. The Asian Christopher Walken)
mind-bogglingly awesome. i’ve often held theories as to the nature of the song and the situation. clearly Asian Christopher Walken is the ‘mack’ in the scenario, and he’s gotta choose between these two bitches who won’t stop bugging him while he’s trynah do his thang on an open green field. don’tchya just hate when ppl gotta be all up in ur shit n fuckin up ur game like that?
still one funny-ass (and actually quite bizarre, if u stop and think about the craziness of the character himself) moofie, made all the more hilario by the short inclusion of Ace’s landlord, “Mr. Shickadance“. his forced double-cough is what gets me the most.
Is This The Cocksucker Residence?
underrated performance from a biting satire film by John Waters called “Serial Mom“, starring Kathleen Turner as a serial killing suburban housewife and mother. in this scene, she says some naughty words.
one of two clips i’ve selected from The IT Crowd, cos it’s a pisser of a show and it’s my blog so SHUT IT UP, CAMILLE!
