why waste your time

We're currently indecision. Not sure if "Hot Mix 2012" is worth the trouble.

more scary shit

Cookie Monster's nightmare, enforcing the terror of screaming for help but having everyone ignore you by singing a creepy unfamiliar song in unison

the backwards message in "Empty Spaces"

"Revolution 9" (although this video is pretty amazing)

either/or alt versions

KRS uploaded most (if not all) of their discography on bandcamp, although there might be some stuff missing... We're not sure. But they do have this wacky Elliott Smith alternate-takes EP which we've been feelin this afternoon.

scary shit

this shit used to be terrifying. some of it still is.

Nell Carter on the cover of TV Guide


Roger Rabbit (this is still scary. can't watch this.)

"I Am The Walrus"

any of the dramatizations in The JFK Conspiracy featuring a dude portraying David Ferrie, specifically at 21:49 when he says "We'll kill Jack Kennedy, AND NOBODY'LL KNOW WE DID IT! HAHAH! AHAHAHAHHH!" and there's another point not long after that where they show dudes wearing black sunglasses breaking into his house, forcing pills down his throat and typing out a fake suicide note

NEW NEWS: electric whipping post 2 / Lincoln director's cut

We're bummed that the new Sifl & Olly's seem to be on temporary hiatus while they relocate to a different server. They were really onto something with gags like Electric Whipping Post and its sequels.

Also, this has nothing to do with Sifl & Olly but we've been laughing super hard at a few recent SNL sketches with Louis CK. Honestly, we're surprised that most of the sketches in recent episodes have actually lacked the tedium we've come to expect as a result of the Cheri Oteri years. It seems that Kenan is just never gonna leave this show, because he knows he can't get work anywhere else and that people will continue to recognize him. (Although he was amazing in Snakes On A Plane so we just disproved our own point.)

when MTV made voting look like the douchiest thing ever

What could have been an outstanding music performance was tainted by MTV sucking their own dick. As a result, this was the last time we watched the VMA's and actually cared.

Nothing has done more towards encouraging us NOT to vote than seeing the 2004 VMA’s. Do you think they could have mentioned it a few more times? It seems MTV is now at the point when they’re saying “We WILL be the reason ANY young people vote this year. It’s up to US! We are SO IMPORTANT!!” Do they even realize that 80% of the people watching are between age 12 and 14? - TMK, 8/30/04

P.S. All of our staff writers did vote in 2004 (both in the primaries and in the November elections), so the douchiness that MTV portrayed in the Vote Or Die campaign did not sway us away completely. (Speaking of Sway, this was the same VMA's when he followed an Alicia Keys/Stevie Wonder duet by yelling "you just witnessed history" into the camera.)

"Awaiting on you all" (demo version)

Never realized how much Phil Spector's wall of sound drowns out the lyrics of this song... Or AKA never realized what the lyrics actually were, period. Jesus, yo. That dude got rull fuckin hgih. (PS This is almost the best song about Jesus. "My Sweet Lord" possibly tops it, maybe.)
