The A-Z of YouTube: Celebrating 10 Years

The 10th anniversary of YouTube is upon on and holy shit it’s been 10 years. I go back and forth between feeling it hasn’t been that long at all and, shit hasn’t it been around much longer? It’s a very cool compilation they put together, take a look and see if you can spot some past and present YT stars.

When Balloon Twisters Get Angry

I had no idea that these guys were called Balloon Twisters, I always just used to call them clowns. My biggest take away here is this dude just hulked out over maybe one of the politest kids ever, sure there was a weak little kick in there, but no screaming, biting or profanity. I’ve seen my share of children freaking out in public, we all have, and this wasn’t one of them. If your patience as a twister runs out on the likes of this kid, it’s time for a new profession clown.

The Hedgehog

The Hedgehog is a short film by Chris Lee and Paul Storrie about a boy wandering a seemingly desolate town in a Sonic the Hedgehog costume. I like this film and I can’t exactly put my finger on why, it’s not particularly happy it’s quite the opposite, but I dig the film quite a bit. In an interview with Short Sighted Cinema the filmmakers talked about it’s development and the message of the film itself.

Ramsey Has a Time Machine

In episode 7 of the web series Ramsey Has a Time Machine, Ramsey talks about his Dr Who like regenerative powers. We also get a sweet guest star in Chris Elliot. If you learn anything at all I would hope it’s to keep pop tarts and fancy poison locked somewhere safe in the house.

Oh Robots, You So Crazy

If you’re like me, you’re fascinated by the progression of technology, and more specifically robots / androids.  Although technology hasn’t gotten to the sci-fi level, it’s certainly on it’s way.  Now this girl (Karen Cheng) is pretty damn awesome at dancing, and she became a bit of a viral sensation with her video last year where she taught herself to dance in a years time.  This video shows her representation of how a dancing robot would act while making breakfast.  By watching the video, you can pretty quickly assume that robots are going to be goofy as fuck if they had to perform those basic tasks (assuming all robots are based on dance routines and not subroutines, jokes amirite?).  In fact, people have already tried to create robots that do basic tasks to somewhat horrifying results.

So in Short:

Karen Cheng dancing the breakfast robot = Amazing

Cheeto robot trying to stuff your gullet = horrifying

Hat tip goes to Orion for this one.

Pornstars Pretending to Cry Shows You They Have The Acting Range of a Tree


Folks, this may come as a bit of a surprise, but porn stars aren’t the best actors in the world.  I know some of you guys may have been fooled by a “casting video” here, or a “taxi ride turned sex romp” there, but maybe you’re a little bit more lenient with your criticism when you know there will be boobies abound soon.  Well this video will clear it up for you.  The nice folks at Wood Rocket (NSFW but I hope I didn’t have to tell you a site featuring a bunch of porn stars is NSFW) did a little experiment to see if porn stars could cry on command.  I won’t spoil it for you if you want to watch the video, but I’ll give you a hint. Nope nope nope.  Most of them sound like they’re laughing, and half cover their face with a hand to hide that fact.  Only one or two really sound like they are legitimately crying, but I gotta give the dudes some credit who are just like, “yeah nope, I can’t do that.” I guess sometimes they really aren’t schoolgirls just looking to get those extra 3 points on the test to bump themselves up from a B+ to an A-.  It sucks to have to learn this from me, but sometimes ignorance isn’t the bliss you think it is.

P.S Don’t get me wrong, I’m going to still watch porn like it’s going out of style.  But you know, I just wanted to give you guys a heads up on the lack of acting skills in porn. Guys, it’s super serious business.

Limp Bizkit Vs : The Mashups You Never Wanted

One may ask, “Adam, if we weren’t supposed to be hearing this, then why are you writing about it?” to which I will reply, “Because I heard it, and since it’s presence is now taking up valuable (arguably) brain cells, I am going to share the suffering with you.” If you’re going down with the ship may as well sink the life rafts and bring everyone else down with you, or so I believe the saying goes.  Anywho, these mashups are just way to bizarre, I’m sure there are others out there but I am only going to link two of them for you because I like to believe underneath all this hatred, I’m a really swell guy!

Anywho the two mashups are Limp Bizkit vs Thomas the Tank Engine and Limp Bizkit vs Seinfeld.

Enjoy! or not I don’t even know what is what or why anymore.

Streamer Spotlight: Vasae

Since the Classy Dicks have started blogging and streaming, it’s been a pretty exciting road.  From meeting all sorts of people to visiting PAX next week, it’s been awesome.  But by far the greatest part of streaming and blogging is meeting new people who are in the same boat as you and are super supportive, like an extremely nerdy support group. We appreciate everyone who’s liked us or watched us stream or read our blogs or anything like that, but this week we’re going to focus on what the Classy Dicks are watching when they’re not streaming, and that’s Vasae.
