Viral Videos

I spent time in the sewers of Youtube and Google Video to bring you Thanksgiving films to chew on while you're Tryp-ing out on turkey (it's a myth, by the way, that turkey tuckers you out).


*This first video is destined to become a viral sensation. Shortly thereafter it'll be enshrined in the museum of a future civilization as a relic of the shriveled souls that populated ours. Unless of course, it's tongue-in-cheek -- in which case, the joke's on me...

*A 13-inch centipede eating a bat!

*Big-brained Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek walks you through cinema's most relished toilet scenes.

*A 9-minute mini-documentary on the band that influenced everyone, yet wasn't British enough for the 60s: The Velvet Underground. Take that Stones, Beatles, and Kinks.

*White people do Thanksgiving. Everything that was right, and wrong, with the 50s. Time to remember the freedoms the Pilgrims gave us!

*Finally, the infamous, and incendiary, Yule Log broadcast.


I give thanks that with all the tragedies taking place at this very moment, humans can still find the time for frivolous messages and unidentifiable orange and marshmallow side dishes.
