Usually I try to discern whether some internetting thing or another is fake but in the case of these Flula Borg videos I find myself not caring. Because they’re so good. The German singer attempts to work through several idioms including “The Proof Is In The Pudding” and “Shoot The Sh*t.” The best is his bewildered, angry, offended analysis of the game “Rock Paper Scissors.” If this is fake…it’s art. (Laughing Squid)
Speaking of foul mouths, here’s a Periodic Table of swearing. It’s obviously British so remember that banned Pajiba C-word isn’t as offensive on their side of the pond. (BioTV)
And while we’re on the subject of foreign words, jM sent me this excellent game called Font vs. Cheeeeeese (Gromit!). It’s harder than you think. (Cheese or Font)
Speaking of fonts, the lovely Stardust sent me this excellent Karate Kid/Typography shirt. “Daniel Sans.” (Woot)
Ah, but Karate Kid is easy pop culture. Can you identify all these pop cultural faces? I know I couldn’t, not even when I figured out they were helpfully grouped. (Society 6)
Apple stores throughout the country shut down this morning in honor of Steve Jobs’ memorial service. Unreality has a fitting tribute with this visual evolution of the Apple products. Oh, Apple IIGS, you were my first love. (Unreality)
There’s a new Tom Waits album out. And it’s streaming online. I’ve got access codes for the first five people to accurately describe the nature of Waits’ voice. Bonus points for the use of “whisky” “sandpaper” “gravel” and “honey badger.” (Bad As Me)
Over on Uproxx, our very own Honey Badger, Dustin Rowles, pays tribute to Christopher Turk. It’s something we never get tired of doing. (Uproxx)
Seth made me do it. It’s not my fault. YOU’LL NEVER PIN IT ON ME, COPPERS. (Explosm)
Craig pointed out this story of an actress who sued IMDB for revealing her real age. SUING? Wow, way to make a bad situation truly depressing, lady. (/Film)
Check out this super full moon. It’s like fuller than full. What does that mean? I don’t know, there’s science on this page but mostly there’s a real purty photo. (Boing Boing)
Michael Winslow (no relation to Carl) of Police Academy and Spaceballs fame (you know, the bleeps, the sweeps and the creeps?) does Zeppelin. It’s even better than you’re thinking.
Finally, the geniuses at “How It Should Have Ended” give Ghostbusters the treatment. The first ending’s alright. The second is great. The third is phenomenal.
