“The Gunfighter” [NSFW]

Thanks to my buddy, Matt, for linking me to The Gunfighter a few months ago. This hilarious short film should have gone up on TTAG then. Nine minutes of quality programming here, and a bit of levity in what feels like a rough couple months of serious news at home and abroad.

The Little Tortila Boy

Given RF’s recent post about the Burrito Boy, it reminded me of this. Pablo Francisco is a talented comedian/impressionist who does a killer “Don LaFontaine.” The late Mr. Fontaine was better known as the “Movie Trailer Guy.” You know – the ones that went “In a world…” Pablo performs one of his routines here, where he takes on LaFontaine, Keanu Reeves and The Terminator himself, in a bit he calls The Little Tortila Boy.

Enjoy.

Way back when (in the 1950’s), Stan Freberg rocked the radio world with his comedy recordings. These two cuts are parody of the classic TV show, Dragnet.

In 1961, radio comedian/advertising wunderkind Stan Freberg released what would become one of the most enduring comedy classic LPs of all time, Stan Freberg Presents The United States of America. Populated with characters voiced by Freberg, Jesse White (the original Maytag Repairman) and June Foray (Rocky, Natasha, Witch Hazel, and Granny from the classic Jay Ward and Warner ‘toons), the album was a send-up of American history, with tongue planted firmly in cheek.

Sunday Morning Funnies: The Professionals

Ah, the wonders of AlGore’s InterWeb thingy. No, I’m not talking about Mr. Global Warming’s failed attempt at creating a television network “for the rest of us.” No, I’m referring to the fact that the web has allowed just about anybody with a camera, a laptop, a broadband connection and a dream to write/direct/produce their own shows, and distribute them on the web for all to see. Of course, the one, tiny little problem with this plan is it’s virtually impossible to make money on it as a content developer, but, what the hey…we can make it up in volume, right? (more…)
