State of the Warnickian world? Warnickian +2

Okay, so it's been four months since the last post. It probably would have been longer.

But then I saw the following vid, and it's high Warnickian quotient of 91% demanded it be posted.

All hail Gamarjobat!

You'll laugh your たるんだお尻 off! Really, the funniest thing I have seen in a very, very long time. My cheeks hurt from smiling!

Metal Virtuoso meets JK Rowling....

Music Break!

Here's a solid cover of "Killer Queen." It's good work.

It also reminds you just how talented Queen was as a rock band.

Nihongo Slide desuka!

Playgrounds have gotten weak on fun and all about safety since when we were kids. Remember these rockets?

Long since torn down because they were "too dangerous." And because homeless men slept in them at night and gang members left them reeking of pee.

But in Japan, there's a 51 meter long playground slide that's finally a step in the right direction.

Oh yeah.

Even more awesome because you missed Dollhouse

For a place full of imperialist opressors, they seem so nice!

The TV show "Glee" irritates me a great deal- Jane Lynch being the best part of the show- and I wish they had used the original. But this is a great video, not only because it shows Hebrew University, but also shows how young and wonderful the students are.

I dare you, I double dare you.

A wedding video so weird, it nearly broke the Warnick-ometer. We had to recalibrate to "WTF" setting level 9. 92% Warnickian...

I dare you to listen to it . . . twice.

From the most excellent of blogs Carl Sandburg Visits Me in a Dream (which is still occasionally updated even while the dude is in medical school!) came my discovery of The Asteroids. This song of thiers is so catchy, that if you listen to it more than once... it may get stuck in your head. Forever!

But who can listen to it just once? Eeeeek! 85% Warnickian!

Isn't it amazing that a grouch like me could feel this way?

The original version. Or so I have been told.

The band guys have such great hair... ahh, the 70's, when all was good in the world- for us.

Oh, so very Warnickian.

I mean, this is at least 90%. It's folk dancing and math, for crying out loud! Here, watch.

Intensely Warnickian- and you can dance to it!

It's 92% Warnickian: it's got a beat, it's got time-slappy visuals, it's from Japan, and... oh yeah, they ride around in a mini-van. What else do you need?

Okay, so there are pranks and then there are masterworks like this, which are, totally f@#$ing awesome.

So I present to you, Winner of the Warnick TFA, this video.

Brain: Oh, glory of glories. Oh heavenly testament to the eternal majesty of God's creation. Homer: Holy macaroni! PART TWO

Let all that draws breath praise Yah. Even over the internet will do pretty well. The spiritual, it seems, can be virtual. 88% Warnickian.
First the Explanation.

Then, the performance. Dim the Lights. Close your eyes. Relax. And...

This could so very much have been me. It never was, because my handwriting was never legible.

He's a republican, a supporter of John McCain, and something else.

This one you can watch with your kids. Or not,.

And they want to pull funding from public television and the NEA? But that's what pays for Sesame Street!

Music Time!

First, some pop, Warnickicized....
Let's start with Katy Perry!

And then something a bit more classical...

A catchy little ditty...
And after that, only the master will do!

An NSFW reminder about how some beauty isn't even skin deep

Foul Language. Heavy Makeup. Brutal Honesty. Crass speech. And a bit disturbingly low in self-resepect, but rather funny.

Beauty comes in many shades, and some of it is deep and true. And some of it is just paint and illusion that comes off on the washcloth.

Outside: Nerdy and White. Inside: A Storm of Passion!

It's the part of Vivaldi's four seasons we don't hear as often. Summer- with furious storms. On the accordion. And you thought our "Mortal Kombat" post was impressive playing.

I totally want one. And so do you!

It's the Mega Multi-touch screen at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. up to 10 people can work on it's very large and very fast surface at once.

Soon, everyone will want one... wait for it.. and there we are.

The Forbidden Dance of Ferguson!

So not only is "The Late Late Show"'s Craig Ferguson a Doctor Who fan with a Tardis on his desk, but when he had Matt Smith on his show, he and his staff planned to do a musical dance number to "cold open" the show. Then, with the number rehearsed and ready to go, CBS had to cancel the dance with 5 minutes to air. They couldn't get the right clearances for the theme music, and so the dance number remains unseen.

UNTIL NOW. 91 % Warnickian.

True Grit of another sort.

Art. Russian. Trippy.
This is not what you think it will be. Nor will it stay that way. 81% Warnickian.

That's a superhero? Oh, Right.

The best part of the creation of Conan O'Brian's superhero is watching animator extraodinare Bruce Timm build it for him- and cackling as he does.

200 Posts? Then the word for the day is "Vincerò!"

To celebrate this momentous event, we need something so triumphant, so regal, so very, very operatic.... hmmmm. But what cou- AHA!

1) Put on a jacket and tie. Adapt a cultured attitude.
2) Take a seat on a padded chair. Read this article to show you are classy and know something about great Opera.
3) Play with your speakers turned up LOUD.
4) At 2:44 in, jump up and shout "Bravo! Maestro! BRAVO!" Throw roses if so inclined.
5) Feel better about the future, knowing you will triumph in the end.

"At dawn, I will win! I will win! I will win!"

It would be illogical?

Best Government Poster of the Decade. So far. From the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, where they do all sorts of stuff for the Department of Energy, and employ over 4,200 big-brained think-nerds. And they have a sense of humor...
