Wednesday Videos Meet Potter Puppet Pals

WednesdayVideoI love Potter Puppet Pals. I do. But here’s the thing – my tween has been walking around going “Snape…Snape…Severus Snape” for DAYS. I am LOSING MY MIND. And if I have to go to the asylum, YOU ARE ALL COMING WITH ME.

So, if you dare, watch “The Mysterious Ticking Noise.” And may God have mercy on your soul.

Wednesday Videos: Redneck Avengers

WednesdayVideoMy family and I laughed so hard at this that we kept missing the lines. I think the Bad Lip Reading videos work best when the crazy things characters are saying sound like things they might actually say – I mean, every time I see Tony and Cap argue from now on I will be thinking about their beef jerky/glowsticks argument and it’s awfully easy to picture Natasha saying “No, I ain’t got my best wig on!”


Wednesday Videos Love Our Friend The Octopus

WednesdayVideoOK I know I’m prone to hyperbole but seriously this is the best thing in the history of ever. Here’s a documentary about octopuses, narrated with what the narrator is really thinking. “They are the most intelligent of all of the invertebrates. Technically not tons of competition there. I mean, clams are stupid. I’m sorry! I said it! But they are dumb as hell.”

Wednesday Videos: Penn and Teller

WednesdayVideoMy dear readers, I owe you an apology for some dead space – I came down with an evil death virus and fell behind on blogging. Normally I blog a month at a time so as to be prepared for things like viruses, but in this case the virus hit on the very week that my to=do list said “BLOG APRIL.” Luckily for me (I guess) the evil death virus turned into an evil bacterial thing which means I got magic antibiotics and am back. Yay!

I’m at RT Booklovers Convention in the same hotel where Penn and Teller perform. I’m amazed to have to tell you that I’m not seeing them – they are very expensive. However, I see their faces everywhere around the hotel so I feel a certain vicarious thrill. Here they are performing the family safe (for once) series of card tricks known as “The Physicist’s Deck of Cards”
