Meme Attack: Instant Random Band

There's a new meme going around the internet that will probably take its place alongside LOLcats and Chuck Norris jokes on "I Love the 2000ies" in about 10 years and feed Michael Ian Black's family for another week. Basically, you let the random functions of Wikipedia, Quotations Page and Flickr come up with your imaginary band's name, album title and cover image. You can see my first attempt above. I think Kanoê was a Norwegian band from the early 90s with a strong goth and new wave influence who broke up when their lead singer died in a tragic fjord accident.

Lynch, Burton's First Short Films

This stuff was brought to my attention by a recent Hollywood Saloon article, that brought together a bunch of shorts from famous directors. I pulled out these two specific ones for the horror connection, and figured it was a good end of the day post for Friday. Hope you guys enjoy.

"The HBO Effect" or 'Movies You Half-See'

Before the Hulu's and BitTorrents of the world came to be, children of the 70's, 80's and 90's had two options to see a movie after it's theatrical pass: rental, or a showing on TV.

Spike Finds PG Porn Not So PG

Guess Joe was pretty prophetic the other day when he said to me that the next installment of James Gunn's "PG Porn" was probably going to feature "full on insertion". Turns out one of the higher-ups at Spike (where the file's hosted), got wind of the latest installment "Squeal Happy Whores" and wasn't very happy. From James Gunn's Myspace blog:

I Eat Cannibals Music Video

No matter where you are when you watch this, you will become convinced that someone has slipped you some brown acid. Even sitting in your cubicle at work, you will think that the guy next to you that you hate has found a way to slip some mescaline into your coffee. I promise.

Make sure to stick around till about the 1:45 mark, to see some of the most mindblowing choreography that has ever been laid to celluloid. And hugs and kisses to whoever can explain to me what the fuck "I Eat Cannibals" is supposed to mean.
