First Mariner employees are either the happiest or craziest

From our buddy Brad over at Beer in Baltimore – is he Prancercising? Horse Bicing? A very elaborate Carlton? An evolution of the Harlem Shake? Either way he looks pretty happy. Have a happy day, guy. … Read entire article »

New Literal MS Paint: Thrift Shop

New Literal MS Paint: Thrift Shop

Hands down, Literal MS Paint is a top five favorite series/collection of ours on the Youtubes, taking popular hits from the current pantheon and drawing the lyrics in MS Paint, with a literal interpretation (duh). The newest addition, a take on soon to be Preakness Infield headliner Macklemore/Ryan Lewis inexplicably on the radio a lot Thrift Shop, is just as clever as the other like, four videos that this guy has put out (all of which … Read entire article »

New Beach House video “Wishes” is weird wild stuff

New Beach House video “Wishes” is weird wild stuff

Baltimore Based Indie group (are they still considered Indie) Beach House just dropped their new music video “Wishes,” directed by Eric Wareheim of Tim n’ Eric fame (who is also from Baltimore, cameo pictured above) – the video is about as surreal as expected, featuring competitive water squirting, sabre dancing, fire dancing and some more dancing. The audience goes hog wild over the whole affair until such time as the “coach” character (RAY WISE!) who … Read entire article »

A Forced Rivalry? part 2

A Forced Rivalry? part 2

When last we left the question about the whole “Baltimore versus Washington Sports” thing, I had what I thought was a shared opinion that the funny video in question expressing the idea that there’s some sort of rivalry brewing between the Washington Nationals and the Baltimore Orioles was mostly contrived for the sake of a funny video. But this current iteration pretty much sums every conversation I’ve seen between Ravens fans and Redskins fans in … Read entire article »

O’s vs. Nats: a forced rivalry?

O’s vs. Nats: a forced rivalry?

There’s a lot to be said in this world about the whole “Baltimore versus DC” thing when it comes to most things in life: Cost of living (Baltimore is better), public transportation (DC is better), bars full of smug, douchey entitled assholes paying far too much for Rum and Diets (DC), crackheads (DC, their *mayor* was a crackhead, can’t compete with that), and so forth. And I guess there’s something of a rivalry between the … Read entire article »

The Cafe Hon Kitchen Nightmares, watch it now

So here we are folks, less than a few hours away here’s the eagerly anticipated episode of Kitchen Nightmares in which we see the usual histrionics, meltdowns, cursing, et cetera – right here in Baltimore! The Cafe Hon saga, roughly 2.5 years in the making (see below), essentially came to a close this past November when owner Denise Whiting relinquished the HON trademark. To be honest, I had this whole post ready to go about a … Read entire article »

Pizza Boomerang: how is this not a viral sensation yet?

Pizza Boomerang: how is this not a viral sensation yet?

@npvajda tipped me off to this magically awesome video for Pizza Boomerang, a creation put together by Barcelona-based Sofa Experience Communications who apparently do a bunch of commercials for Burger King in Spain. Beside the point. On the point, this video RULES. It has literally everything you could possibly want in a video about pizza boomerangs: A pizza boomerang Tears of blood Suicidal men in Christmas sweaters Castration Grilled Octopus! I’m just going to shut up now, you should watch this video. Right … Read entire article »

TLC’s Virgin Diaries: Holy CRAP

TLC’s Virgin Diaries: Holy CRAP

So there I am, sitting in my living room last night wondering what to watch after the Ravens much-to-be-expected W over Cleveland when I suddenly see this promo on The “Learning” Channel – TLC – whose programming could be used for the forces of good but instead typically highlight gigantic people having babies into toilets. This here special Virgin Diaries features, pretty obviously, people who either choose to be virgins or have had no luck … Read entire article »

And now for some god awful Scientology raps

And now for some god awful Scientology raps

It’s been quite some time – slightly over three years – since I wrote my letter to the lawyers of the church of scientology who so graciously graced my mother’s doorstep in Catonsville and handed her a letter identifying me as a person of interest for my involvement with the rogue internet terrorists known as Anonymous (memorieeees) and their attempts to terrorly terrorize the church’s neverending quest to bleed its members dry of their monetary … Read entire article »
