After Wudgles’ timely post over 2 weeks ago, we are finally back in action. We are now a year older and a year wiser, except neither of those things. If anything this is going to be the exact same as last summer’s blogging, except for more brain damage from another year of alcohol abuse and lack of oxygen from banging so many sluts (I may be doing it wrong). First thing’s first, I’d like to summarize our year for you brave readers in picture form:
From left to right: Dr. Funke, Wudlges, and Mac 10. Ah, the memories.
It’s almost certainly an accurate depiction. ANYWAY, I’m here to start a new weekly feature that will almost certainly last for at least one week, and that is “Links with Dr. Funke.” I’ll pick a few things I’ve been wasting my life with recently, and then encourage you to do the same thing so maybe I don’t feel like such a piece of shit when I wake up at 3 in the afternoon every day because someone made a few videos of Sesame Streetmashed up with hardcore rap videos and I stayed up all night to watch them. Carpe diem.
1. Bambi on YTMND. This fine piece of modern art is all at once hilarious and incredibly stupid. Therefore, it is right down my alley.
2. Auto-Tuning the News. I love this for a few reasons. First, it provides evidence that rappers are still talentless, because the Katie Couric portion of this is better than 95% of all rap (for further evidence of rappers being talentless, see pretty much all rap ever). Second, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything less funny than the angry gorilla. If those guys are trying to make decent comedy videos, they should know the first rule of animal suits and comedy: always go with the bear suit.
3. The Kenny Powers audio book tapes. HBO’s Eastbound & Down was somewhat of a pleasantly awesome surprise on TV this spring. It may not be a show for everyone (for example, men who wear women’s clothing and other assorted fags, or perhaps terrorists), but people seem to either hate it or love it. If you haven’t watched it yet, then this clip will most likely make it clear which of those 2 sides you’re on.
4. “How to Handle the IRS” by Daniel O’Brien. Dan O’Brien writes with cracked.com, and he might actually be one of the funniest writers around right now. He consistently writes columns that make me pee a little bit in my pants. Go through some of his older stuff, which for the most part is just as good.
