Mean-Spirited Amusements

by wjw on February 20, 2009

I’ve had a busy week, with little time to think, let alone blog in a thoughtful fashion. I’m not able to be entertaining right now, and I’m feeling really grumpy, so I’m providing links to a whole raft of mean-spirited amusements found elsewhere on the net.

Why is Richard Pryor laughing in heaven? Because he’s viewed this whole page of videos of drunk idiots trying to drink flaming shots, and then setting themselves, their friends, and their homes on fire.

Lo, a page of things that can go wrong when you have sex in exotic locations. (I can testify to the truth about sex on a beach.)

Because Academy Award season is upon us, here’s the Oscar Acceptance Speech Generator.

Also in honor of Oscar, we have a page of embarrassing Japanese ads starring Oscar-nominated actors. See Sean Connery sing in Japanese! . . . sort of.

And, just in case you’re on the verge of losing your home and you decide to emulate Kevin Smith’s friends Zack and Miri, you can help generate a scenario with this handy porn movie flow chart.

I love the torch people. It makes me think of the band, “Flaming Lips”.

I am also glad you are busy. Hope that it’s because your next book is close to coming out. It would be even cooler if it was because you decided to plan out a new TV series and pitch it to the networks (Long shot I know).

We wont hold your grumpynes against you, everyone has the right to be grumpy, and I know of no law stating that you must be entertaining all the time. Enjoy your fowl mood.

I’ve been resisting posting this link for a couple of days now, but the flu hit me and I no longer have the strength to resist.

I’ve been trying to get rid of the idea of guilty pleasures — trying to accept that if I like something, I like it and there’s no point in trying to apologize for it in order to up my cool factor. That boat sank a long time ago so it’s time to stop bailing.

But this? This is a real guilty pleasure. It carries a genuine taint. And yet from time to time I find myself… watching.

The idea of cricket fighting always sounded kind of charming. Well, this is cricket fighting for the twenty-first century and it’s appalling. Really dreadful. Genuinely wrong.

Here you go…

Wow! That’s evil!

Isn’t it, though?

But it makes me want to write alien fight scenes…
