My lead guitarist recently had the inspiration for this image. I refuse to take the blame. I'm only posting it here because he has a shpoon and i'm afraid he'll make me use it.

Okay, you know Bruce Lee right? Well now know Tony Jaa (rhymes with "lie," i'm told.) The only thing that stops this from being the ultimate in badassery is that scarf. I mean, really, what's up with that scarf. You'll think the subtitles are a joke, but it turns out he really is looking for his elephant.

Alright, so the entire manga-reading public has been going crazy about Fullmetal Alchemist for the past year or so, and just today I picked up the first few tankubon to see if it lived up to the hype. And it does. It'd really good stuff--the alchemy is nifty and almost Duanian, and the plot is nice. I like the characters too. Check it out if you're into that sort of thing.

Someone I know online is attempting to start a meme, and thus and therefore I am passing it along. Do the same--who knows, it could be the next O Rly owl.

Alright, if you live in the US and your local PBS system is showing it (which hopefully it is) you HAVE to watch the reairs of a British sitcom called "Coupling." You may remember it as an American remake that attempted to fill the power vacuum after the end of Friends, and which quickly tanked. I don't know if it was crap or not, since I didn't watch it, but the british original is freaking HILARIOUS. It's very friends-y, put something about it is just indescribably incredibly hilarious. I have both lolled, and rofled.

"I'm not sure your girlfriend exists."
"Oh yes! She exists! She's got tons of existence!"
"Well, not too much existence. She's somewhere in between "completely imaginary" and "a truck.""
But with a British accent which, as we know, makes everything funnier. Just watch the show. On the Boston station it's on at 10:30 on Saturdays, just after the british The Office. I don't know if it's the same time anywhere else.

it's videos time

that might need a jingle or something, I dunno. anyway:

* Slightly NSFW due to swearing and mentioned multiple genitalia, Washington is very trippy but completely awesome.
* This is completely SFW and utterly badass. Seriously. It's awesome. I dunno if it a real show or not, though I'd guess it is, but it's basically a Zombie Survival Guide, with the guy who played Ed in Shaun of the dead.
* Presumably you've heard the story about how dropping Mentos into Diet Coke makes it explode, and it may surprise you but this is, in fact, true. However, I know of no one but these people who've tried it with more than a hundred bottles of Coke simultaneously.
Well this is pretty nifty.

This is so indescribably cute it's not even funny. Just look at it. Though I'm amazed this guy just stood by filming and risked this cat wrecking his computer.

50 Cent (or fitty, as I understand today's straight-up gangsta terms him) seems much more entertaining when he raps to the tune of Thomas the Tank Engine.

okay, all this can't be true. It's just too silly.
