Cal Marching Band Gets l33t

Check the sheer geeked out awesome fest that is the Cal Bears Marching Band running a Video Game themed half time show waaaaay back in the early 90s.

Love the Tetris shapes and Mario Montage.

If you like this, check out some other video game tirades, like Metroid Prime CosPlay and Super Mario Brothers PWNAGE.

George Carlin: RIP

George Carlin died yesterday, and even though I am an internet asshole, I felt sad.

George Carlin

Not because I knew him personally, but because I was a fan. And because the world will sorely miss his wit and whimsy.

Carlin had everything a comedian could want.

A keen ear for language, a metronomic sense of timing, a loathing of mediocrity and two-faced apathy that typifies much of modern culture. George Carlin was a gleeful anarchist, a sardonic and merry prankster who forced the world to look at the ridiculous pose it too often affected. Carlin moved the boundaries of American Comedy beyond Lenny Bruce.

He made pot jokes in the guise of a hippie weatherman.

He questioned censorship in those 7 famous words you can’t say on television.

He taught me to question the God of my Father. And made me laugh, in spite of the pain.

Rest In Peace, George. We’ll keep laughing, but it won’t be the same without you.

I try to keep this blog apolitical (this post and this one, not withstanding) but this photo made me LOL and I thought I would share it with you.
