We're sitting around watching YouTube vids in the lobby, and [livejournal.com profile] ficlette just pointed us to the "Hard Gay" videos (which she pronounced as "hahd ghey" with that cute Boston accent). It is FUCKING HILARIOUS OMG.

emmagrant01: (Buffy laughing)
I'm sure most of you have seen this by now, but if you haven't, go read [livejournal.com profile] violet_quill's take on what she might have guessed the plot of DH was based on reading her flist if she hadn't read the book. You will laugh your ass off. Oh, and SPOILERS.

Remember this video of Karl Rove dancing to a rap song about him?

Jon Stewart has a nice little video response. (Link goes to Crooks and Liars, where you can download the video, since Comedy Central yanks all Jon Stewart clips off of YouTube now...)

And hell, while I'm loving on Jon, he has a great segment mocking Richard Cohen (one of those "ex-gay therapists") here. :-D

Edit: Comedy Central is posting embeddable videos now on their own site. I've put the videos mentioned above behind the cut. )

I totally noticed this phallic imagery during Prince's Superbowl performance, but I thought it was just my mind in the gutter, as usual. Turns out other people noticed it too!
emmagrant01: (Buffy laughing)
I know this may not make much sense to anyone outside the US, but. I'm not a football fan, so like many, I only watch the Superbowl for the commercials.

So: Superbowl commercial commentary!

• Snickers: two guys "accidentally" kiss
• Bud Light: "English class"
• Budweiser: the wannabe Dalmatian (Awww...)
• The awesome Japanese monster movie spoof for a personal navigation system (can't remember the brand name)
• Coke: The machinima commercial -- yet another example of fan practices being picked up by popular culture.
• Chevrolet: OMG the one where all the guys were stripping and washing the car with the four cringing women inside!!
• GM: the little robot trying to pick up the pieces of his shattered life to the tune of "All By Myself" totally made me cry. I can't even blame hormones.
• Coke: MDH just explained to me that the "milestones in Black history" one refers to the fact that the coaches of both teams are Black, a first in the history of the Superbowl. So, very cool.
• Sprint: Connectile dysfunction. *snerk*

Halftime: Okay, Prince? ROCKED. God, I love him. He sure looks good for a man on the verge of turning 50.

• Sheryl Crowe, have you SOLD YOUR SOUL? :-P
• Taco Bell: the lions were hilarious! "Dude, Ricardo Montalban?"
• Emerald Nuts: They always have weird-ass commercials. Is Robert Goulet that hard-up for work?
• Motorola: Waitress, referring to Charles Barkely: "Is this your dad?" LOL!
• That insurance company: K-Fed! Even though I'd seen it before, it's still funny. I bet Britney got a laugh.
• Bud Light: The hitchhiker one. "Honey, he has an axe!" "But he has Bud Light!" And then the next hitchhiker has a chainsaw, and axe man is all "He has a chainsaw!" "But he has Bud Light!" :-D
• HEB (local one, I think): Emmit Smith is superfly! That was cute.
• Budweiser: crabs worshiping the cooler of beer. The animation was good, but I think I missed something with that one...
• HP: I love OCC, so it was great to see the guys in such a cool commercial.
• eTrade: "Things you can do with one finger". Funny that they didn't mention any of the ones that popped into my mind. *coughs*
&bull: CareerBuilder: I didn't like the ads at first, but they're starting to grow on me.

Note: Most of the commercials can be seen HERE. :-D

Funny stuff

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] furiosity, I have recently become addicted to [livejournal.com profile] cat_macros. I showed like 80 cat macros to my increasingly annoyed husband last night, going, "OMG look at this one!" He finally told me he didn't think they were as funny as I did. :-P

And for a great morning laugh, check this out: [livejournal.com profile] redpiratemel wrote hilarious captions for a Snupin comic by [livejournal.com profile] tripperfunster. Spew warning liek wh0a. :-D
emmagrant01: (embarrassed)
Thanks SO much to the folks who've sent me virtual gifts!

I got a stack of gifts from [livejournal.com profile] moonflower_rose and an anonymouse, mistletoe from [livejournal.com profile] snottygrrl, [livejournal.com profile] miracle511, and [livejournal.com profile] legomymalfoy, and a lump of coal (!) from [livejournal.com profile] lusiology. My UI page is now all decked out with holiday cheer!

And I have to share this bit of fun from today. MDH had been teasing his parents all morning, and finally MIL had had enough.

MIL: "He needs to be spanked! I don't think I could hold him down to do it, though."
FIL: "I know *I* couldn't hold him down."
MIL: "Emma, I think you're going have to be the one to give him a good spanking."
Emma: *spews coffee*
MDH: *raises eyebrow and smirks*

And the funny thing is that she has NO idea we took it that way. :-P

Edit: Oooh! My [livejournal.com profile] btvs_santa gift was posted! It's an HP/BtVS crossover, in which Gilderoy Lockhart visits Sunnydale! :-D Read it here.
emmagrant01: (embarrassed)
SNL is KILLING me, I swear!! Cock in a box??? Holy shit! And Justin as Robin Gibb is OMFG perfect!

Edit: Clips from the show here.

I fucking love Jon Stewart.

Jason Jones, on the gay marriage amendments on state ballots not being enough to swing the vote towards the GOP: "Republican strategists didn't count on the President being less popular than gay marriage. Apparently the prospect of continued GOP control of Congress is even scarier than the thought of two men humping in your neighborhood."

Jon: "Who is affected in these seven states, with the ban?"

Jason: "Well, it's actually a defense of marriage initiative, Jon. It says to homosexuals wishing to spend their lives in a happy, committed relationship, marriage doesn't apply to you. But, if you're in a loveless heterosexual marriage, don't worry! Doesn't affect you. Or for that matter, arranged marriages, third marriages, Russian brides, abusive alcoholic co-dependents locked in a cycle of violence and despair -- that's still covered. Or if you're a repressed homosexual who managed to squeeze three kids out of your wife only by mentally airbrushing Pierce Brosnan's asscrack on her lips, fear not. Marriage remains the same sacred institution you've always been trapped in."

Oh, man. *wipes eyes*
emmagrant01: (embarrassed)
Oh, dude. This is WAY too funny. And I'm oddly proud how much of it I could relate to! I have to say that the bit about The Star Wars Holiday Special was pretty close to the reality of how I acquired my copy. *coughs*

emmagrant01: (embarrassed)
It's not every day that a news report about the fighting in Afghanistan makes you LOL: Canada troops battle 10-foot Afghan marijuana plants.

One soldier told him later: "Sir, three years ago before I joined the army, I never thought I'd say 'That damn marijuana'."

Oh, Dan.

You know? I think it's funny as hell.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] moony for pointing to the YouTube link. ;-)

Not exactly worksafe. Though it being Friday/Saturday, that's probably okay for most of you. Heh.

Kock? ;-)

I TiVo'd the William Shatner Roast on Comedy Central the other night, and I have to say it was one of the funniest things I've seen EVER. The snark and the mean and the sporking was just beyond anything I've seen on television, I swear. I laughed so hard I literally wet my pants!

One of the highlights was Andy Dick's cracktastic Kirk/Spock mpreg fanfic reading. The man knows his slash cliches, for reals. There were little things in there that made me wonder just how much slash he's read! I was surprised to see that it wasn't on YouTube anywhere, so... I uploaded the clip myself, heh. Enjoy!

emmagrant01: (laugh)
THIS fic by [livejournal.com profile] phaballa is probably the funniest bit of crackfic I have ever read*. Seriously. I don't even know who those characters are. It's original fic, as far as I'm concerned, and I seriously snorted some coffee through my nose while reading it. And am now late for an appointment, fuck.

*Okay, the funniest since she wrote that Anderson Cooper/Jon Stewart fic that I also thought was the funniest thing ever.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry at this Shakira spoof.  The accompanying text says the guy made it for his Spanish final.  I wonder what grade he got?

Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] furiosity!!
emmagrant01: (got slash?)
From [livejournal.com profile] batagur's latest post:

"It has been my observation that Nice People in fandom have popularity and staying power. Nice people are not always sugary sweet, or unrealistically wonderful. Nice People are real people. Sometimes they don't pull punches, but they know when to wear the gloves. Nice People mind their own business when it needs to be minded and step up to speak out when they need to step up. Nice People don't inspire hate mongering or vendettas. However, Nice People can be real enough to admit when they have witnessed something stupid in fandom. Nice People don't have to have the last word, the last laugh, the last comment, the first comment, or the adoration of an entire fandom. Nice People inspire and not squelch."

I needed to read that this morning. Here's to Nice People! Pass it on. :-)

Okay, where's the porn?

ETA: Need a laugh? [livejournal.com profile] aiglet points to this site about Christian sexuality with essays titled "Anal Sex in Accordance with God's Will", "Threesomes Within a Christian Marriage", and "Fisting and God's Will". Is it a parody? Who cares? It's funny as hell. :-D (Oh, and read the "letters from readers", too. That's how you handle a troll.)

If you're a member of [livejournal.com profile] wankagainstwank, come join in the wankfic round robin! We can make our own porn this morning.
emmagrant01: (embarrassed)
It's just an amazing coincidence that I saw a link to this recipe right after reading [livejournal.com profile] florahart's latest fic.

Just... dude. Cumsicle. *snerk*
emmagrant01: (laugh)
Gacked from [livejournal.com profile] loony_moony (who got it from [livejournal.com profile] anniesj): Video clip showing a Fox News anchor losing all pretense of being objective when interviewing a crazy homophobe. I've never been a fan of Fox, but it's nice to know that some people out there are so insane that we can all agree.

emmagrant01: (drunk)
I just got back from an evening of hanging out in the infamous Snape's Pub with [livejournal.com profile] lazy_daze, [livejournal.com profile] balefully, [livejournal.com profile] son_of_darkness, and [livejournal.com profile] pitchblackrose. A lot of alcohol was drunk and much fandom gossip was shared. Are your ears burning, flist? *grins*

But seriously, it was so much fun to get to see these folks again, and I really appreciate them taking the time to come and hang out with me on a Thursday night!

Oh, and I have to report one funny moment from late in the evening when a random drunk guy came and sat at our table to flirt with [livejournal.com profile] lazy_daze. His astoundingly smooth pick-up line: "So, have you ever kissed a dead body?" And she turned to me and said, "Hey, have you ever read that one Harry/dead!James fic where he's fucking him and feels all the maggots squirming around his cock?" I've never seen a guy leave quite so quickly, heh. ;-)

ETA: Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] charlotteschaos for the link to the/a Harry/dead!James fic. I'm just not ready to read it again yet. :-P
