Youtuber whatdondrapersays has really done the lord's work with this supercut featuring a bunch of movie characters singing Sir Mix-A-Lot's seminal classic "Baby Got Back". You can tell it's a true masterwork based on the inclusion of the great Sho'nuff from The Last Dragon at the 2:20 mark. The answer to your next question is yes, Platoon does handle the "me so horny" part. Bravo interwebs. [via thedailywh.at]
Posts have admittedly been few and far between lately but I couldn't forgive myself if I didn't pass along the greatness of Fiona Apple's first album in seven years streaming online. She's the best. I can't talk much now because I'm just about to listen to it a hundred times in a row.
As per usual you can thank the fine folks over at NPR for the stream. Then buy The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than The Driver Of The Screw, And Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do when it comes out June 19th. Then go see Fiona on tour. Then pray for a shorter wait for the next album.
It's no secret I can't stand MeBron's incessant back and forth over whether or not he is a nice guy, victim, or villain as he so aptly put in the douchiest Nike ad of all time (gloriously spoofed by South Park here). Mostly I had tried to block that from my mind like that one time Kirstie Alley seduced me at Fatburger, but with the latest NBA Cares commercial going around those visions came shooting back to his declaration that he is no role model. I'd call him a hypocrite but he's not even sure what he is. Either way I mashed them up, forgive me.
In what is unquestionably their greatest announcement video to date, Phish has revealed the dates for the first leg of their summer tour. Aside from a three night stop at Atlantic City's Bader Field, there are no other first time venues, granted this part of tour usually covers a bunch of the band's favorite haunts. The ticket lottery is currently underway with the official onsales taking place March 16th and 17th. As per the now standard tradition, additional dates for the summer tour, which you can safely assume should have a somewhat west coast bias, will be announced in the spring. Rock.
Enjoy Summer Tour!
Look at all of us with our fancypants smart phones and our productivity apps like Evernote and Springpad. So silly. Then there's the legendary Johnny Cash, with his pen and his paper and his incredible will. Okay, maybe he needs to remind himself to have some willpower, I'll give you that. Either way this is without question the best to-do list of all time, aside from that one day I spiked Tony Danza's morning coffee with acid and made him make one himself. "Show Angela who the boss is" is not ten different tasks. [via letters of note]
