Weezer’s “Pork and Beans” video

Weezer reminds us about how dorky we all are for loving the internet–for being on on it.

Brilliant. It’s a “best-of” video.

And if you don’t recognize many of the clips in this video, you’re a damned Luddite.

The tune isn’t bad. It’s pretty classic Weezer, but that can’t hurt anybody.

Sweet stop-motion video

This is one of the coolest videos I’ve seen in a while. It appears that the creator(s) of this video did all the graffiti themselves. It must have taken forever, but the end product is cash. The music is pretty cool too. I would advise not watching it under the influence of hardcore mind-altering substances. (Just a guess.) Then again, for those of you who really like the trippy stuff, rock it out:

Yo quiero amiga! Taco Bell dog spanks it.

Spanky says:

This little bastard must be lonely since Taco Bell kicked his ass to the the curb. Now he’s got no job, no food, and he’s getting busted on camera polishing his red rocket. Maybe he’ll show up on VH1 soon looking for love or trying to “get fit.”

What a loser!

Viral Video: Drunk History Vol. 1 – Featuring Michael Cera – Funny Or Die

I just got finished watching the entire HBO John Adams series over the weekend so you could say I am on an American history kick.  I found a hilarious video called “Drunk History Vol. 1 – Featuring Michael Cera” over at funnyordie.com and had to share it.

The idea is that Mark Gagliardi got drunk and discussed the events surrounding the famous duel between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr.  The babble that he spewed was reenacted by Superbad’s Michael Cera and Jake Johnson.  It is pretty ridiculous.

Michael Angelo Batio rocks the double guitar

I can’t remember whether I’ve posted this before to the Trumpet–but guess what? I don’t give a shit whether I did.

This video will change your fucking life.

Do you feel down in the dumps? Is your job getting you down? Are you behind on your credit card payments?

Fuck all that.

I give you Michael Angelo Batio:

There are several clutch moments in this video:

1. At 1:20, there is a close-up of M.A.’s junk, (his onion bag, if you will), and the camera backs out to reveal the double-necked-guitar wizard in his Power-dookie Stance (kinda like the one Ari Mihalopoulos, from the band Douchetrophy Destrophy, uses). At this point, you know that the Be-mulleted one is about to kick some ass, which is evident at

2. 1:37 into the video, where, after alternating Power-Slaps, Ghetto Mick Mars (the real one is in Motley Crue, duh) shoots you a look like you KNOW Satan is about to blow his fiery-devil-wad as a result of the impending Double-Metal-Flurry down the dual fretboards.

3. Then there is the Arm-Crossed-Fingering of Doom

4. Around 2:20 there is the Inverted-Upside-Down-Cross-of-Satan’s-Incarnate-Manpaint.



M.A.B. combines stylefulness with form, thunderition with articulationousness, content with feeling, grace with smoothnicity, charm with seriousishness, and rawnessnicity with imperialism and disestablishmentarianism.

Michael Angelo Batio: a true musician and a gentleman.
