The ‘In One Minute’ Genre

Sunday, September 27th, 2009

Apparently this is a big thing. This is the first time I’d seen it. Forest Gump in a minute:

Pretty hilarious. And kind of sums up the way I feel about the movie (and Tom Hanks two (!!!!) academy awards).

These guys have other ones too: 28 Days Later and Kill Bill. I like this one best.

And apparently there’s an ‘In 5 Seconds’ genre as well, although the only ones I’ve found of those are not so funny (which is sad. ’Titanic in 5 Seconds’ seems like a pretty easy layup).

Thanks BuzzFeed

Why On Earth Is This Man Doing This?

Thursday, June 4th, 2009

This is from Johnny Depp’s list of Top 6 YouTube Videos (from his Vanity Fair interview, and digitized by Vulture).  I have to say the first video on the list is one of the most disturbing videos I’ve seen online.  Not because it’s particularly graphic or gruesome or anything like that.  But precisely because there is no explanation as to why this man (Paris’ Shakespeare & Co. Bookstore owner George Whitman) is cutting his hair by lighting it on fire.

What!?!?!

Incidentally, Depp’s list is — as you might expect — very warped.  But he’s got some pretty choice YouTube highlights (including a VERY VERY HIGH James Brown on CNN).  Check out the digitized rendering of his Top 6 on Vulture.

Just in Time for the Holidays!

Amazing, right?  And must be real, because they’re speaking French!
