By most mechanical and dirty hand: Rouse up revenge from ebon den with fell Alecto's snake, For Doll is in. Pistol speaks nought but truth.
Went to a great show at Second City last week, featuring an acquaintance of mine the one and only Nug. The show, Rings! is the story of three guys trying to adapt The Lord of the Rings into a one hour comedy show. If you enjoy Lord of the Rings in any form or are a geek, I know for a fact you'll love this show. Plus they let you drink during the show! Win-Win!
Here are the details from Nug himself:
That's right, RINGS!: A FELLOWSHIP OF FOOLS has only three shows left.
TONIGHT @ 11 pm FRIDAY MAY 26 @ 11 PM MONDAY MAY 29 @ 8 PM
Only three more chance to see the show NOW Magazine called, "a joy to watch"! If you haven't seen it, now's your chance. After these three shows, it goes away forever... unless there's a sequel.
Don't forget, Monday's show features an improv set FOR FREE!!
Second City Toronto 51 Mercer St. Tix available at the box office or call 416-343-0011
Check it out if you can, I highly recommend it.
Now for some random stuff...
What If Al Gore Was President of the United States...?
Oh Saturday Night Live, you never cease to be sporadically hilarious. Gone are the days of Murray and Belushi, Sandler and Farley, Piscopo and Murphy, Ferrell and Meadows... Yes SNL's glory days are behind her, but every once and a while they get it right again. They opened last weeks show with an announcement from the President of the United States... Al Gore. Very funny.
Check out the video at Crooks and Liars. Dancers Doing The Charleston To B-Boy Music
This video shows a pair of extraordinary gifted swing dancers from some black-and-white TV show set to modern hip-hop with a lot of eerily serendipitous synch-ups between the music and the video. The dancing is nothing short of amazing and set to the contemporary music, it's even nicer. (From BoingBoing.net)
I've got some more embedded videos coming your way!
10 Things I Hate About Commandments
An awesome mashup trailer of the Charlton Heston "classic" The Ten Commandments. Essentially making the film look like a stock 1980's Teen Comedy. If only the real film were like this... And not the over-blown, over-rated ridiculous spectacle it is.
Who Shot First Bookends
If I were to ever buy a pair of bookends(DVD-ends?) I would most certainly buy these. So nerdy, yet so cool. Pre-order your own Mos Eisley Cantina Bookends here. Oh geekdom, you never cease to amaze me. Doings a Transpirin'
And I'm spent, just a few things to note blogwise. I've changed the layout of the site slightly... This is a precursor to a total site redesign hopefully by the end of the summer. My site is approaching its third anniversary, and although I didn't celebrate the second, I will most certainly be doing something special in a few months to mark the occasion. I'm An Internet Meme
In other news I was the victim/benefactor of an internet meme on a site that I am a member of. It got a little out of control, but was all in good fun for the most part. Check out some of the pictures on My Flickr Page. Pretty ridiculous.
