I’ve been fortunate enough to witness the Aurora Borealis several times. If you haven’t experienced the phenomenon, get thee to the Boundary Waters immediately. It’s an amazing experience. And now scientists have discovered the source of the phenomenon:
Sid Vicious Sings My Way
This is the best: Sid Vicious of the Sex Pistols sings My Way. Found it on
ClipShack (but then when I saw it posted and it wasn’t even embedded in my blog but instead sent you over to ClipShack when you clicked on it, I went over to Google Video and found it and used their code so you can stay on my blog and watch it and, by the way, the Google code allows you to change the side of the video, which the ClipShack code does not. So take that ClipShack!):

Hell yeah! God bless Google Video. Just say no, kids; just say no. It doesn’t get any better, or more hilarious, than this:
Aqua Teen Hunger Force
My DVR describes Aqua Teen Hunger Force as "food items solve crimes." They are food items but I can’t recall them ever solving crimes. This is one of my favorite shows and, if you’re not familiar with it, is yet another example of the genius that is [adult swim].
The Hunger Force of the series consists of Master Shake is a self-centered milkshake. Frylock is a goateed box of french fries who plays the straight-man, has a jewel embedded in his back, and can shoot lasers from his eyes. Meatwad is a gullible glob of meat who can morph into the shape of a hot dog or an igloo.
Carl is their disgusting next door neighbor. He’s human…well, sub-human. Many of the episodes open with a short scene featuring Dr. Weird, a mad scientist, and his assistant, Steve.
The intergalactic characters include the Mooninites and the Plutonians.
The Mooninite characters include Ignignokt and Err, a couple of smart-assed two-dimentional pixelated game sprites lifted right out of any 80s arcade game. The Plutonians consist of Oglethorpe and Emory, a couple of spikey and stupid extraterrestrials. Oglethorrpe has an Austrian accent.
This is a typically great episode that includes most of the characters:

Halo Vs. Donkey Kong
Cartoon Network is one of the best channels on cable and [adult swim] is largely the reason why. This is a hilarious segment from Seth Green‘s brilliant show, Robot Chicken, about what might happen if you pitted Halo against Donkey Kong:

Napoleon Dynamite On St. Patrick’s Day!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Here’s some historical information from a Napoleon Dynamite impersonator. Really; why would someone want to do that? Oh, that’s right–so you’ll hire him. Smart kid.
