Hey there, Gasmii. How’s your December? Winding down at work so you can load up on eggnog and those industrial-sized canisters of caramel/butter/cheese corn? Burrowing your way through the mountain of holiday cookies and brownies in your office? Feeling a little snuggly because the weather’s gotten colder and hazier? Or are you just ready to punch the next PA system that plays Alvin & the Chipmunks “Christmas Song” because it’s the only one most retailers think won’t piss off some constituency? I hear ya, Gasmii. Especially since SoCal is having its first wintry December in about five years and all I want to do is nap. So let’s let this week’s video selection be a little ray of cracked-out sunshine.
You know what always brings a smile to my face? Nerd girls singing Styx. Seriously, is there anything more sublime and funny than earnest teens discovering bad 70s rock and interpreting it for YouTube? They give me hope for the future that not every 16-year-old dreams of being on some MTV show.
I think I saw the Face of Bo somewhere in there. (h/t my brilliant friend Laura who finds these things for me.)
Maru is SO 2009. Lil Bub? Last summer. Even Smoosh’s day in the sun is over because there’s a new(ish) internet cat burning up tumblr, and her name is Tardar Sauce. Which might explain why we know her better as “Grumpy Cat,” because, for real, why would you name your cat Tardar Sauce? Even if she has an unfortunate facial structure. Did your mom name you Dumbass because you weren’t born potty trained? No. Anyway, Tardar Sauce isn’t a grumpy cat and here, she tells us a little more about her life, loves, and dreams.
She’s just a simple cat trying to make her way in the world. With an unfortunate mouth and Steve Buscemi eyes. DON’T JUDGE HER!
Remember Rhett & Link and they’re questionable Bible lesson from a few weeks back? Well, here they are on friendlier ground, explaining exactly how one should bid adieu to his mustache.
So hipsters, if you take nothing else away from this video remember this: Don’t pull any shenanigans with your mustache. It’s not as clever as you think.
You know, no one culture truly appreciates the subversive nature of cuteness like the Japanese. Seriously, they’ve elevated it to a deviant art form. But you know who else appreciates the sheer trippiness of cute animation? The Russians, because anyone who could create Red Square really appreciates the value of mind expansion.
Even Disney thought this was too much.
So you just know their children’s programming has to be awesome, right?
I have no idea what I was watching, but I love that they raise their little girls to be babushkas. You’re never too young to be someone’s granny.
Finally, if you’re still looking for a chemical-free way to get totally high, may I suggest this video:
Ahhh. Time for more cookies, eggnog and cheese corn.
