Unmitigated YouTubidity

[ Comments Off ]Posted on January 29, 2013 by admin in Missing Links

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

This week’s links you may have missed include lots of vehicular vidiocy, a little “schneedenfreude” (a word we just introduced into German), and the Holy Batting Cage.

As the old saying goes: “writing about YouTube videos is like dancing about reality shows”, so for this week’s Missing Links, we’ll spare you the excessive highbrow commentary, so you can dig straight in to the YouTubidity of it all. From cradle to CataCombo, we have it all. Clips below. Read the rest of this entry »

TGIF – Thank God It’s Friday, and Thank God for GIF’s

Our weekly roundup of the best GIF’s we saw this week.

As we come careening around the corner of Friday and heading into the weekend, what could be more appropriate and lazy-brained than some amusing GIF’s? Thank God It’s Friday, and Thank God for (animated graphic) Image Files. Enjoy our new weekly Friday feature, where we round up the best GIF’s we see each week. We like to think we’re choosy mothers, and choosy mothers choose GIF’s. Even if they ARE an outdated file format, and a hackneyed meme from last year. Got a suggestion for next week? Send us a link. Have a great weekend! Read the rest of this entry »

This Week’s Missing Links: Inauguration Bootybombs, The Mouse from Hell, And More

Beyonce’s butt beats Bieber’s, the Lupe Fiasco Fiasco, a cute cat video, and a badass mouse that howls at the moon and eats scorpions and tarantulas.

Apparently, Beyonce isn’t the
first thing on Bill’s mind…

It probably says something about America that the real buzz about the presidential inauguration yesterday wasn’t driven by Obama’s inspiring vision for the next four years, but focused instead on the first inaugural use of the word “gay”, on who won the Clarkson & Beyonce smackdown, the Lupe Fiasco fiasco, and perhaps most importantly, on which politician sneaked the most peeks at Beyonce’s rear (see below). Frankly, I don’t see how their eyes were aiming so low, with President Obama’s Ceremonial Drone Flyover roaring overhead. We promise to get to the bottom of this issue below, butt first, some shopping tips and YouTubidity: Read the rest of this entry »

New Tuesday Column: The Missing Link

Generally, we’re choosy mothers who don’t choose GIF’s. Unless of course they’re Spongebob GIF’s that demonstrate men and women’s perception of the other gender’s idea of foreplay. We’re starting a new weekly section to share the links we otherwise don’t feel are worth sharing. Enjoy the Youtubidity.

Running a site like Dissociated Press, I end up seeing dozens of links submitted by visitors almost every day. Usually, I’ve seen them myself already on Reddit or some other social sharing site, but by the end of the day (like it or not) I end up feeling like I’ve seen the entire internet. A friend mocks me about this by saying, in a dramatic, breathy voice: “The internet. I have seen it“. In any case, I end up with these unimagineably huge collections of bookmarks and animated GIF’s that serve almost no purpose whatsoever. I tried once before to find a way to unload them on you with collections of infographs and videos or pointless lists of lists, but quickly discovered it was almost as much work as creating actual original content. But we’re going to give this idea a reboot every Tuesday for a while anyway, so enjoy. Linky goodness complete with YouTubidity below. Read the rest of this entry »

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Beware, as always, the Hasselhoffian Recursion:
