My friend Allen Klosowski knows how much I love Michael Jackson, so he tweeted me a link to this video this morning and now I feel the need to share it through every possible social media channel. These two dudes, Stjepan Hauser and Luka Sulic, play Smooth Criminal in a epic cello battle. Definitely check this out!
The latest My Chemical Romance video is up on Youtube now and it’s stunning. If this video was a dude, I’d marry it. Visually, I love the blue tone and the way the light overwhelms the frame at times. On the performance side, the guys do some acting and it’s more like a short film, telling a real story, than a music video. I have loved everything with this new record and I can’t wait until it comes out on the 22nd.
Check out the video after the jump. (I’d recommend watching it in full screen.) Read the rest of this entry »

Mel Brooks: The king of comedy – Entertainment News, Profile in Excellence: Mel Brooks, Media
Thanks to “The Producers,” “Blazing Saddles,” “Young Frankenstein,” “High Anxiety” and a slew of other movie, stage, TV and album hits, Mel Brooks’ prominent place in the pantheon of comedy stars is assured. … http://bit.ly/cq7dNO

“Oooh, ‘xiety! It’s you… that I blame!”
“I am not going to listen to any more of this, I mean, I’ve *had* just about enough!”
The Psycho shower scene is my absolute fave, but embedding is disabled on YouTube, so you’ll have to watch it there. It starts about 4:40 in. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZTyHPh-9kD8
I used to watch this movie all the time when I was in elementary school and practically memorized it. I would estimate that I’ve seen it over 100 times.
A few more after the jump…
