Dinosaur: green derp

Strange videos...

Some band named Sigur Rós is going to be doing music for the new Game of Thrones season, and since I never heard of them, I hit up YouTube and clicked the first video.

How very very odd and cool. I found I wasn't even listening to the music, the visuals were just so strange and striking. I was worried about what I was seeing at first, [I thought it was... (spoiler?)]some sort of primitive or ritualistic rape, but happily that turned out not to be the case. Not that [spoiler]human(???) sacrifice was much better, I guess? Either way, well worth seven and a half minutes to watch!



This second video is strange in a different way. Just strange-strange, what the heck were you smoking when you made this? strange.



Unfortunately part of the Internet can answer that question for you: Yiff.

Edit: Also, Amazon is just so amazing sometimes. I ordered something before work this morning, and just got an email about it:

Same day delivery. For no cost. How boggling is that?

Ask A Slave (Work Safe!)

Know those historical reenactment sites? Popular destinations for school trips and family vacations? A woman who plays George Washington's slave at one site has started a web series about it.

At first I thought it would be serious -- facts about the time period and walk-throughs of her job. That would have been interesting, but what the series actually is is even better: She's collected the worst/funniest of the comments that visitors ask her and reacts to them.

This is episode one:


Unfortunately there are only three episodes so far.

What a great job something like that would be, sort of a mix of cosplaying, RPing, and educational. It would give you great practice at thinking on your feet, since you never know what sort of questions you'd get.
