The Tigerpicks - Disco Punk Electro Funk

Disco Punk Electro Funk “Disco Punk Electro Funk, Disco Punk Electro Funk, Disco Punk Electro Funk, Disco… Electro. Disco Punk Electro Funk, Disco Punk Electro Funk, Disco Punk Electro Funk, Disco… Electro.”



Family Guy - Pitch Pilot

Rude and crude This is what Seth MacFarlane put together on a shoestring budget for Fox to show what he could do. Most of the jokes got recycled into early episodes of the first season.



Brass Eye - Drugs

What a fucking disgrace Dude, I totally have to get my hands on some of that cake stuff. That throwing up your own pelvis thing sounds really hot, and I just can’t wait to stimulate my “Shatner’s Bassoon”!



Hill of Beans - Satan, Lend Me A Dollar

Satan please hear my cry “All I see is pain and death and lots of people with bad breath. They say the world has gone to Hell. That would be just as well”.



Little Audrey - Lost Dream

Dream on There is something about toons involving dream sequences in magical realms that fascinates me. Take this one, which isn’t that well done and yet I still find it interesting.



The Big Brother State

Welcome to the information era Closed circuit surveillance is just one example of how you are being monitored everyday during even some of your most mundane activities.



Dumbland

Weird for weirdness sake David Lynch once summed up Dumbland as being “a crude, stupid, violent, absurd series”. He single-handedly created each and every episode himself, so I guess he would know best.



The Cathedral

Not bad at all This stunning fantasy/scifi CGI short by Tomasz BagiƄski about a pilgrim reaching the end of his journey was nominated for an Oscar back in 2003.



Adventures of Mark Twain - Mysterious Stranger

Crazy creepy claymation “I find you humans quite interesting even though you are a worthless, greedy lot. How annoying that sound is. Fools…what fascinations there are on this planet.”



Ghostbusters - Mr Sandman, Dream Me a Dream

Who you gonna call? The title of this series is actually The Real Ghostbusters, because there was actually another series going by almost the exact same name at the same time, but based on an old Filmation show.



Aqua Teen Hunger Force - Face Omelette

Meatwad can shread When it comes to ATHF, I’m pretty sure it is the type of shtick that is best taken in small doses. I’m not so certain a movie version is such a good idea…but I’ll watch it eventually.



Fahrenheit 451

The book is so damn good “Monday, we burn Miller; Tuesday, Tolstoy; Wednesday, Walt Whitman; Friday, Faulkner; and Saturday and Sunday, Schopenhauer and Sartre. We burn them to ashes and then burn the ashes. That’s our official motto.”



The Bayeux Tapestry

So much violence in the ancient media The Bayeux Tapestry is that famous old dirty British sheet from the opening sequence of Bed Knobs and Broomsticks, in case you don’t know already. [via metafilter]



That’s Numberwang!

Sixty-nine There are 10 rounds. Each round lasts 10 seconds. You’re up against the clock! Play your numbers, as long as they’re between 0 and 99. That’s Numberwang!



Adventure Time

Mathematical! Adventure Time is a trippy, funny, and totally gnarlly animated short made for Nickelodeon as a pilot, but was never picked up, which is a damn shame. There should totally be more of this.



Nineteen Eighty-Four

Ignorance is Strength This is my favorite novel of all time, so I’m obviously pretty jazzed about this 1954 BBC adaptation. It stars not only Peter Cushing, but Donald Pleasence as well, so check it out.



El-P - Flyentology

Totally fly “With no knowledge of dogma to conform to, I know I don’t deserve it, but save my ass. And if I’m going down, let me do it in first class.”



2010 - Aero Braking

It's dynamite on paper Sure, this movie is nothing close to 2001, but it is still a darn good film. I saw it in the theater as a kid, and it was some powerful stuff at the time.



KLF - The White Room

I'm such a huge fan...yep The KLF are infamous in their own right, but the unique history of this film and it’s development into a landmark album in the world of techno is what makes it so fascinating.
