See Spot. See Spot run. Run Spot run.
See George. See George learn. Learn George learn.
See Man. See Man fall. Fall Man fall.
See Ape. See Ape rise. Rise Ape Rise.
See Planet. See Planet of the Apes.
See George. See George run. Run George Run.
"You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
Row row row your boat,
Gently down the stream.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a dream.
...is a nursery rhyme. "Life is but a dream" and all we can keep on rowing. After all,
Round the world and home again
That’s the sailor’s way
Faster faster, faster faster
There’s no earthly way of knowing
Which direction we are going
There’s no knowing where we’re rowing
Or which way the river’s flowing
Is it raining, is it snowing
Is a hurricane a-blowing
Not a speck of light is showing
So the danger must be growing
Are the fires of Hell a-glowing
Is the grisly reaper mowing
Yes, the danger must be growing
For the rowers keep on rowing
And they’re certainly not showing
Any signs that they are slowing
... is from a film intended for children. Children love existential crises.
That is what Tolkien envisioned. I am sure. Lots of super powers, gore and game mechanics ripped right out of Assassin's Creed.
Oh, you want some more poetry or song?

YOUTUBE POOP: HARRY POTTER AND THE FLESH-EATING SLUG REPELLENT! PT. 1!
YOUTUBE POOP: HARRY POTTER AND THE FLESH-EATING SLUG REPELLENT! PT. 2!
youtube poop [yoo-toob-poop]
1. A name used for a subtle internet-only art form posted to youtube in the form of a series of chosen clips, usually from a cartoon or movie, clipped, looped, and remixed in an almost random and nonsensical pattern to produce really offbeat but often humorous content by relying on a mix of clever editing and repetition.
EX. Every now and then I find youtube poop that transcends the usually crappy and amateurish format and earns itself a status that I refer to as "golden poo". The bizarre and often violent parody of the second Harry Potter film, The Chamber of Secrets, is an example of such a "golden poo" with some rather purposeful editing. Check it out.
Oh and if you know of another piece of "golden poo" feel free to share it.

I was a pretty big fan of Dunkey's latest album and one of the more abstract jams was about a man named "Sam" and his "Green Eggs and Ham" of Dr. Seuss fame. It is a pretty fun and fast paced little tune and this animated video is super cute. Check it out.
The new Sonic the Hedgehog game is bad.
In other news, he is blue, wears red sneakers, and eats chili dogs. Also, his games are no good.
