The Man Without A Facebook

If you’re reading this, chances are you’re on Facebook. Hopefully, someone came to this website via a link on Facebook. However, there are people who haven’t joined the cult of Facebook. There are some who say that if you aren’t on Facebook, you don’t exist.

Writers and directors Dan De Lorenzo and Ben Stumpf have tapped in to this phenomenon with a parody of the 1993 Mel Gibson film The Man Without A Face. Lorenzo and Stumpf’s clever parody trailer, fittingly titled The Man Without A Facebook, tells the story of a young man who discovers a social outcast who writes with pens and most shockingly interacts with his friends in real life.

The Beastie Monsters?

It seems that Mike D, Ad Rock and MCA are a bit tired of the whole promotional trip for their new record. So, while the Beasties take a break, it looks like three of their friends from the Street are taking over: Yes, Grover, Cookie Monster and Oscar The Grouch are filling in for the Beasties on the classic track “Sure Shot.” Ch-check out Grover switching between flute and vocals, Oscar dropping some knowledge and Cookie Monster…eating cookies.

Nice work, Wonderful Creative.

Harrison Ford And Chewbacca

Harrison Ford was on Jimmy Kimmel Live earlier this week to promote his new film Cowboys and Aliens. Before the show an old friend dropped by his dressing room, and let’s just say things didn’t end well. It turns out that Ford and Chewbacca had a rather nasty falling out a few years back. Poor Chewie certainly hasn’t aged well.

Two Brits Visit A Wal Mart

Is there anything that gives a more frightening depiction of America than Wal Mart? When you look at the shoppers featured at the “People of WalMart” website, you can’t help but feel a little ashamed that this is how some of our fellow countrymen go out in public.

But enough about the residents of Wal Mart nation, what about the store itself? What would happen if two foreigners decided to visit the store? Two Brits, Alex and Liam visited America and stopped off at a Wal Mart. On their journey they discover such products as “Pizza with Wyngz” and the suggestion to “Try pork tonight. And enjoy something extraordinary.” I think it’s safe to say the two intreped travelers came back with a greater understanding of America upon leaving the story.

Queen “Let Me Entertain You”

Queen’s over the top sensibility, art school style and and operatic ambitions often made them Public Enemy # 1 for the punk rock movement. Well, in 1978 Queen released the album Jazz which featured what may be the heaviest track track in their whole repertoire, the record industry/prostitution rocker “Let Me Entertain You.” The song features Freddie Mercury at his fiercest and great guitar work from Brian May that matches the punk fury of Johnny Ramone and the Sex Pistols’ Steve Jones. Mercury’s lyrics are particularly delicious on this song, including phrases as “I’ll Cruella De Vil you.”

 

Chris Sims Eats A Double Double

Chris Sims is a comics blogger extraordinaire. Sim’s blog, The Incredible Super Blog, and his work at ComicsAlliance are some of the most consistently entertaining pieces on the ‘net.  In fact, when the Daily Show needed someone to talk to about Batman, they turned to him. Anyway, Sims was in San Diego this weekend for Comic-Con and made it his mission to finally have an In n Out burger. The results were captured on video:

What If Lucas Lee Played Captain America?

Last year, we showed you the hilarious fake movie posters created for Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World character Lucas Lee. Lee, an action movie star who’s recently made a string of bad films, was played by Chris Evans who you can currently catch on the big screen as Captain America. The connection between these two comic book roles lead the staff of Geektress.com to ask “What would it look like if Lucas Lee played Captain America?”  Well, the results are in and it’s a little frightening. Although, the film’s new tagline is just perfect for a Lucas Lee flick.

Thanks to Geektress for creating this.
