“Stupid is rarely quiet.” – Bunk Strutts 5 May 2018

This is stupid.

Grease the pole.

Urban graffiti vid is better with the sound off.

This is a fun cartoon series.

17 minutes of lathe art.

Heh.

Linkin Bridge‘s “My Old Kentucky Home” is killer

Oh, and Cinco De Mayo has everything to do with selling beer in the US and nothing to do with Mexican Independence Day.

This is kinda cool. Mariachi flash mob showed up in Madrid, but Mariachis originated in Mexico not Spain. Go figure.

Have a great weekend. folks, see you back here tomorrow.
