cashier beatboxing

Standard

Here’s a video of Beardyman at a supermarket / grocery store, where he starts out as a bored cashier but gets inspired to do some beatboxing along the way.  If only the cashiers at Walmart could do this…

He has a number of other videos out, and he performs live, too.  If you care to experience more of his “beatology”, here’s a music video of DOLBYMAN featuring Beardyman performing all the parts, which covers several musical genres.

more of The 3 Stooges, please

Standard

The staff here at Buffet o’ Blog all recently saw The 3 Stooges movie.  With us being all guys, we thought the movie was awesome.  It could’ve done without the woman dressing immodestly — there was no need for trashiness.  Overall, we thought it was very funny and mostly true to the original series.  However, somehow the movie concluded without there being a food fight. I don’t get it.  Such a scene was all setup at one point, and we all thought it was coming, but it never happened.  Were the directors trying to psyche us out, or did they just forget?

Anyway, this isn’t just a review of the movie.  I got to thinking about a further application of something that happened in the movie.  (Mini-spoiler alert.)  When Moe went to be on the reality TV show Jersey Shore, that was hilarious.  None of us watch Jersey Shore (do I even need to explain why?), but we all joked that it might be worth watching if someone like Moe was actually on the show.  (Well, I still wouldn’t watch that show because of all the immorality, but follow the idea.)  There are many shows that could benefit from the addition of The 3 Stooges.  The most obvious application is a parody movie involving them (or a reasonable facsimile) inserted into scenes reminiscent of other movies and/or TV shows.  But the concept could be expanded to all kinds of television shows.

I realize there are legal complications with this idea, but that’s for lawyers to iron out.  The point is, this idea would make many TV shows and movies more interesting, and you’d get more men to watch, which makes more money, so it’s a win-win situation.  Add The 3 Stooges to a chick flick, and it would become a romantic comedy that’s actually funny.  (Although the idea might not resonate well with women — some women find their brand of humor repulsive.  I don’t understand… wait, I already said that.)  🙂  Regardless of the gender culture gap, this could help many shows.

The next time you watch TV, imagine how the inclusion of The 3 Stooges would impact what you’re watching.  And if you want to take the idea even further, check out our post on how to make any movie awesome.  This idea fits in perfectly with that concept.  In fact, combine both ideas — take any show or movie, add the 3 Stooges, plus ninjas, car chases, wrecks, military-grade weapons, explosions, epic fight scenes, Chuck Norris, Jackie Chan, Mr. T, Buford T. Justice, Rosco P. Coltrane, etc., and it would be awesome beyond description.  (We should definitely be directing movies!)

Will it blend?

Standard

You might’ve heard of the website called .  It’s a collection of videos where they use a Blendtec blender and try to blend all sorts of objects.  In a way, it’s like one of those stupid games you might see on David Letterman, but this is better than most of that stuff.  It has the look and feel of an old TV game show, which is neat in a retro sort of way.  But what sets this apart from other websites is how random and unusual it is.  Have you ever wanted to put non-food items in a blender to see what happens?  The guy in these videos gets to do it for his job!  And he does a good job, possessing a super cheesy smile while various items are being blended into a big mess.

Some of the things they’ve blended are a dozen , 6 Bic lighters (which creates an interesting explosion), even an (which he then put on eBay with a blender and it sold for $901), , a , , a can of soup, (really), , (which create cool glass dust), and much more.

The latest video is bad guys versus Chuck Norris.  Since the real Chuck Norris was unavailable at the time, he used action figures.  He tossed several bad guys and Chuck Norris in the blender, to let them duke it out in there.  The results are amazing.

Perhaps I need to get one of these blenders, because they look like a lot of fun…

the king of Donkey Kong

Standard

I’m going to take a moment to mention a new movie that many will consider “nerdy”.  (I have to be me.)  🙂  There’s a movie/documentary called The King of Kong that came out last month.  It chronicles a true story dealing with classic arcade games and being the best.

Here’s a little bit of the story.  Billy Mitchell is a legend in old-school gaming.  At 17 years old in 1982, he held the all-time high scores in Donkey Kong and Centipede.  He also set a few more records on other video games, like Donkey Kong Jr.  Then at 34 years old, he had the first-ever perfect game at Pac-Man.  The movie chronicles the efforts by Steve Wiebe to break the record on Donkey Kong.  The movie has several twists and turns along the way, which you can read about at these links :
