Tosche Station Deleted Scene Re-cut into A New Hope. When I was a kid obsessed with Star Wars lore (1977-1983) the character Biggs was a bit of a mystery. My friends and I can recall the Tosche Station scenes from seeing the first move in 1977, but they were edited out by the time the made it to broadcast TV, laser disc or BetaMax. Maybe it was a dream, ESP, or the Mandela Effect, but I remember those scenes back then, and I remember thinking how it reminded me of my uncle and his friends, fresh out of the Vietnam War, hanging out at the local bar. It was nice to see these scenes brought back to the film. #VideoFest2022. 12/26.
Shapes was a weird Adult Swim TV special. #VideoFest2022. Plenty weird. 12/21.
Gremloids Star Wars parody from 1984. #VideoFest2022. 12/21.
Might as well rank the Star Wars movies or series that I've seen in order of entertainment value: 1) Empire, 2) A New Hope, 3) 🎅 The Holiday Special, 4) Return of the Jedi, 5) The Mandalorian, 6) the Red Letter Media YouTube series about the prequels, 7) The Clone Wars, 8) Rogue One, 9) Attack of the Clones & Revenge of the Sith (they are kinda like one big blob of meme fodder), 10) Boba Fett series, 11) Phantom Menace, 12) an unpopular opinion but The Last Jedi (followed by watching Vito's YouTube about it as a palate cleanser), 13) Han Solo movie, 14) The Force Awakens, and 15) The Rise of Skywalker. That's all I've seen.
🎅 I enjoyed Elf, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story, the Grinch and the Rankin-Bass claymation movies the first 50 times I saw them each. My favorite Christmas movie is the Star Wars Holiday Special (the 3rd best Star Wars movie) and in particular I like JonTron's video about the Star Wars Holiday Special. #VideoFest2022. 12/20.
I'm a huge fan (256 pounds to be exact) of Little Debbie Snack Cakes, so this We Tried EVERY Little Debbie Snack video was enjoyable. I'm also a fan of the band Southern Culture on the Skids. #VideoFest2022. 12/20.
This Nyan cat man video cracks me up. Maybe because he reminds me of the bass player of my first band. Just his face and hair -- not the cat, rainbow and Poptart parts. #VideoFest2022. 12/20.
Jake Brake From Hell Compilation 2021. I had no idea what a Jake Brake was until YouTube recommended this video to me. Now I hear them all the time on the highway. Will the Tesla semi have a Jake Brake simulator noise? #VideoFest2022. 12/20.
How the World Sounds to Animals. Dogs experience life at an 80 frame/second frame-rate, which makes us look like we're moving in slow motion to them. Awesome video. #VideoFest2022. 12/20.
The past few years I've been obsessed with DEVO. Now I'm obsessed with Van Halen Roth era. Not sure how long it will last. And by obsessed I mean "watch videos on YouTube about Eddie Van Halen's guitar and amp modifications". For starters, check out Dweezil Zappa's Running with the Dweezil Podcast 1/25.
Police, Fire, EMS, Aviation, and Rail Audio Feeds online. From what I've read, the new generation of "Police Scanners" are difficult to use. Might as well use this website. There are a lot of explosions and sirens going off in my town, so I would like to know what's going on. (11/28)
Ubuweb's sound page has been around for over 15 years. It features audio clips from artists & other creative folks. I haven't visited the real/classic web (i.e. not Facebook, Twitter, IG, YouTube) much in recent years, but I'm glad Ubuweb still exists. (12/26)
I'm amazed how much music is on Spotify. In the 00's it might take me years to find a certain obscure song or album, but today almost anything I want is on Spotify. So much KPM library music is there. (11/15)
Official KPM site for folks who would license library music for their productions. (11/8)
Check out this amazing looking toad. Red, white, black and beige. All the colors of my living room. (7/6)
The SCTV YouTube page offers funny clips from the 1970s/80s Canadian comedy show Second City Television. SCTV featured comedians John Candy, Martin Short, Catherine O'Hara, and Harold Ramis to name a few. (7/6)
