Star Trek Meets Monty Python

We’ve featured a couple of Star Wars mashups on the blog, most notably Han Solo, P.I. We haven’t really covered much in the way of Star Trek aside from mentioning that smut magazine Hustler have made a XXX parody called This Ain’t Star Trek.

And we’d like to take a step in correcting the imbalance by showing you this – a movie mashup of the funniest Monty Python song, “Knights of the Round Table”, performed by the cast of Star Trek. Check it out below.

Relationship Fail: Why my ex Sucks

I think I may have mentioned this before but back in the day when I was at varsity a girl broke up with me to hook up with her Spanish dance instructor – he taught her how to dance and she taught him how to speak English. I believe it was short-lived though, as he gave her the clap. I don’t really hold any grudges but I don’t speak to that bitch anymore. No seriously, I jest ;-)

In the same vein as Fuck My Life and Texts from Last Night, a new website – Why My Ex Sucks – asks users to tell them why their ex-partners were complete douchebags or douchBaguettes. Bitterness needs to be condensed into three reasons.

Here are some of the submissions:

Practice Makes Pervert

1. He broke my wrist when he insisted on arm wrestling me. He’s six foot three. I’m five foot even.

2. He didn’t bring me to his prom because “his dream girl” asked him last minute.

3. He cheated on me. And expected to make me feel better about it because the girls “meant nothing to him” and he was just “practicing for me.”

Healthy Habit

1. He smoked crack and stole my car. My car keys had my apartment keys attached to them, and so I was locked out for three days while the cops looked for him.

2. When we broke up and I kicked him out, he proceeded to uninstall and steal our toilet.

3. I went on vacation with my girlfriends and returned to find that he had sold all of our electronics for crack!

No Greek God

1. He BEGGED me to fly from Greece to Paris to stay with him for 3 weeks. When I got there, he all of a sudden wanted me to leave. He had made me pre-pay for the fucking tickets, so I was stuck there with no money to leave earlier.

2. When broke up with him he asked my 14-year old sister out to make me jealous so I would take him back.

3. He thought it was weird that i showered almost every day. He showered every 2-3 weeks and only because his parents told him to.

The Audi R8 Optical Illusion

I love optical illusions, considering I pretty much live in one. From my Lamborghini Murciélago which is really a VW Beetle to the corner office that is basically a cubicle that time forgot, I view many things from an odd perspective.

And here’s a little illusion for you – which one of these Audi R8s do you think is the largest? Think about it and find the answer after the jump.

‘Hammer Pants’ Flash Mob

It’s Hammer time, flash mob style. As part of a promo for an upcoming documentary on the rapper made famous by his sparkly pants, a flash mob pulled off a well orchestrated MC Hammer dance, gold pants and all. Check it out below or watch it in HD at YouTube.

Apparently this flash mob lark goes on in South Africa as well, but it’s limited to throwing fruit at each other or just falling asleep as a certain spot, hardly exciting stuff. If a flash mob were to stone a Police station, that may pique my interest. But you didn’t get the idea from me, I am in no way responsible for the rubber bullets that become lodged up your ass as you beat a hasty retreat from the fuzz. Oh wait, I’m getting riot and flash mob confused. My bad.

Street Gang Calling Cards From the 70s and 80s

Like all business men and women, gangsters too need calling cards. In 70s and 80s when guns weren’t the norm as they are today, gangs in Chicago, USA used business cards to make new friends and intimidate other people.

Here are a couple of those calling cards.

The loonies from Hanson Park obviously didn’t think much of Pink Panther.

Rabbit stew was always on the menu at the Almighty Gaylords dinner table.

Spelling comes last at this gang.

We don’t die. We just get high. Says it all really.

Compliments from Hell’s devils Satan, Skull, Lil Devil and … Spunky.

Celebrity Caricatures

Here’s gallery from the Worth 1000 vault of awesomeness. In Pinocchio 15, photoshoppers were asked to shrink or enlarge the facial features on any celebrity to create an amusing caricature. The rules were simple:

No breasts, butts or genitals, at all, no exceptions, don’t even try. Use FACES. And no breasts on faces. Or butts.

There were 84 entries in total and here’s a small gallery:

Goodbye Grasshopper

Ah so much nostalgia. Sitting round the TV on wintry Saturday afternoons eating Corn Curls, drinking Sparletta Cherry Plum and watching David Carradine in Kung Fu and Kung Fu: The Legend Continues. Those were the days man. Needless to say I was very sad to hear that David Carradine famous for playing Kwai Chang Caine and Bill in Kill Bill had topped himself in a hotel room in Bangkok. There is much speculation as to whether like INXS vocalist Michael Hutchence, David Carradine didn’t actually mean to hang himself, but rather died as the result of a (solo?) sex act gone wrong.

Whatever happened, I think David Carradine was a fantastic actor and had a certain charisma about him that made even corny kung fu TV shows seem special.

Goodbye Grasshopper and good luck for whatever comes next.

Okinawa Soba and his Photos from Old Japan

I could easily spend many hours looking through the photostream of Flickr user Okinawa Soba. He has posted hundreds of interesting photos of the 19th and early 20th century life in Japan, China, America, and Africa.  His comments are pretty insightful as well.

Here are three I quickly picked out from old Japan – click to embiggen.

Taken from his SWIMSUIT GIRLS of OLD JAPAN set, this photo is of the popular geisha, Miss Koman.

In 1904, out of thousands of Geisha in the Tokyo area, she was considered by Japanese writer and poet YONE NOGUCHI to be one of the top five in popularity, commanding top price to entertain you, and having legions of adoring fans who could only hope to catch a glimpse of her.

From his PROSTITUTES of Old Japan set, this circa 1890-1900 image shows caged prostitutes and a prospective customer. If the customer finds a prostitute he is interested in, he will light his pipe and pass it through the bars to her. She takes a puff as a sign of acceptance and passes the pipe back through the bars to seal the deal.

Lifted of his SAMURAI, SWORDS, and ARMOR set, this image shows three samurai posing, and yes the one in the middle has a tail. Why? Perhaps he is gay. Apparently the real Samurai held GAY LOVE in high esteem, and encouraged it saying it was considered beneficial for the youth, teaching him virtue, honesty, and the appreciation of beauty.

……..Shudō is the Japanese tradition of age-structured homosexuality prevalent in samurai society from the medieval period until the end of the 19th century. The word is an abbreviation of wakashudō (若衆道), “the way of the young” or more precisely, “the way of young (若 waka) men (衆 shū)”. The “dō” (道) is related to the Chinese word tao, considered to be a structured discipline and body of knowledge, as well as a path to awakening.
