Gondry’s Flight of the Conchords

The first four episodes of sea­son two of Flight of the Con­chords were unin­spired and for­get­table, but that all changed with episode five. Direct­ed by Michel Gondry, the Con­chords return to the top with two great songs – the Sausage­fest anthem Too Many Dicks on the Dance Floor, and an ode to Jemaine’s ex-girl­friends titled Car­ol Brown.

I’m just catch­ing up on this sea­son now, but episode six has Kris­ten Wiig from SNL… omgz!

The Weekender

This is a pret­ty good par­o­dy of the New York Times Week­ender com­mer­cials, that play on basic cable sta­tions through­out the Tri-State area and New Eng­land. Appear­ances by Paul Rudd, Eugene Mir­man, and The State/Stel­la alum­ni Michael Ian Black, Michael Showal­ter and David Wain. It makes me want to go see some com­e­dy at 92YTribeca.

Also, I must find some­thing besides the Times to blog about.

Sacha Baron Cohen Crashes the Catwalk at Milan Fashion Week

Ali G and Borat might have been put to rest, but come­di­an Sacha Baron Cohen seems to now be work­ing on a Brüno movie, based on his gay Aus­tri­an mod­el char­ac­ter.

Ear­li­er today, he caused a ruckus when he crashed the cat­walk at Milan Fash­ion Week, dressed in a ridicu­lous­ly fun­ny cos­tume. The pho­tos and video look hilar­i­ous.

Waffle House Wedding

Some tru­ly excel­lent jour­nal­ism, from The Gwin­nett Dai­ly Post: Waf­fle House Wed­ding. I love that you can order any of the pho­tos.

Inside Obama’s Emails

In the wake of Sarah Palin’s email account hack, The Onion brings you Inside Obama’s Emails. Fun­ny, but I thought John McCain didn’t know how to do the e-mail? [via Jason]

Obama is RESTful

Corey Ehmke wrote up a fun­ny com­par­i­son of the tech­nolo­gies used by the Oba­ma and McCain cam­paigns on their web­sites. His con­clu­sion? Oba­ma is REST­ful.

Yearbook Yourself

Yearbook Yourself

Upload a photo of yourself, and they’ll take it from there – 1970, 1976, and 1986 respectively.

I had a lot of fun play­ing with Year­book Your­self, a site that will take your bor­ing head­shot and turn it into embar­rass­ing year­book pho­tos that nev­er were.

The tru­ly amaz­ing thing is that the 1970 com­pos­ite (left) is a dead-ringer for my Dad around that time. This is what my mom kind of looked like in the ear­ly 60s.

Font Conference

What if fonts were peo­ple? A fun­ny video from the gang at CollegeHumor.com.
