And now a word from our sponsor

Pax Arcana

When it became clear that buying a condo and having a full-time job were going to make updating this blog difficult for a short while, I figured I would just fill the void with funny videos and lists of made-up words.

Well, the funny videos didn’t materialize as I’d hoped and making up words turns out to be a lot easier when you don’t have to deal with reading legal and financial documents all day and night.

But we were rescued today with this insanely awesome 90-second commercial for the 1985 Plymouth Duster, one of the high water marks of American advertising. (Clip courtesy of Warming Glow, one of the most plurpletudinous blogs on the cirtrixscape.)

Tuesday morning filler: Daddy FAIL

Pax Arcana

We’ll be up and running with violent hilarity soon, I promise. In the meantime, I think it’s always useful to remind people that Carolina Hurricane fans are vicious sexual predators.

GO DEVILS.

How to save the news

Pax Arcana

I have no idea how to save newspapers, except to suggest that the writers and reporting go back to writing and reporting rather than foisting their stillborn business models on the public.

That said, I think this video says a lot about how to save TV news. Sing it loud, my auto-tuned brothers and sisters:

In the future we will dance like idiots

Pax Arcana

As if the steady march of science and its evil ploy to control us with mind-reading robots weren’t enough, we now have to worry that the future will be full of ridiculous dancing.

Via Boing Boing:

My favorite part is how they grab their asses when they turn around. It’s like a bunch of ass-grabbing chickens doing the Hokey Pokey.

You make me touch your hands for stupid reasons

Pax Arcana

Here’s a little high school drama to remind you of why it is not our ability to write that separates us from the lesser animals, but our ability to laugh at the writing of others:

A heartwarming tale of a dog and a duck

Pax Arcana

There are three things the world needs more of, in my opinion:

1. Simple solutions to complex problems

2. Potato chips

3. YouTube videos about ducks adopting puppies, then dying of old age, then being stuffed and reunited with the now-grown dog, ending with a scene of a fat lady dragging the duck’s corpse through a field as the dog runs alongside. All subtitled in Spanish, of course
