Odell Breaks the Internet

odell-beckham-c4d129fca41159e3

Odell Beckham Jr, son of a track star and a football player, broke the internet tonight by making a physics-defying catch in the Giants-Cowboys Sunday Night NFL game. The fine-pointed concentration and preternatural feel it takes to complete the following action is Bruce Lee-like. It’s what legends are made of. And this kid is a rookie.

I like to watch this GIF with the John Williams Pandora channel running in the background for maximum epic-ness.

The Human Show

In much the same spirit as Too Many Cooks, The Human Show takes a warm, fuzzy childhood trope and turns it into a walking nightmare. Congratulations are in order for Sethward Allison, and the other talented LA-area improvisors and clown-folk who assembled this skin-toned abomination.

Too Many Cooks – A Tour De Force of 80s Sitcom Surrealism

Casper Kelly is the Salvador Dali of uncomfortably long 80s trope-fests.  His masterwork, Too Many Cooks, is a sewn together series of shorts that aired on stoner cartoon haven, Adult Swim.  The video’s references are vast, covering the gamut from Family Matters, The Brady Bunch, Married with Children, Step By Step, Law & Order, Battlestar Galactica, Roseanne, The Cosby Show, Thundercats and GI Joe.  The video is haunted by a serial killer who, as some reviewers have noted, bears a resemblance to Slavoj Zizek.  I will say no more, and simply allow Too Many Cooks to mindworm its way into your brain and lay eggs deep in your subconscious.

 

Interstellar — A Journey To Nowhere

Interstellar

Having just returned from the Arclight Cinemadome, having watched Christopher Nolan’s three-hour love letter to Stanley Kubrick on a ghetto-IMAX 70mm screen, I am resisting the urge to tear it apart. After all:

Bring Forth The Immortal Moles

Mole

Hello internet crickets and empty void. It is I, Russ. I would not be authoring this were it not for a mind-numbing, world-is-a-grapefruit-like coincidence of immense proportions. Via this three year old BBC News Health article, there is a going scientific theory that the number of moles you have can be an indicator of the length of your telomeres.
