Saturday Matinee – MMA Mismatch 1998, LogoRama, Brother Phelps, The Kentucky Headhunters & Roy Buchanan

Saturday, 9 June 2012

600 lbs vs 169 lbs. in a match from 1998 – 431 lbs. was apparently the greatest weight differential in MMA history. Place your bets, then hit play. [h/t garycooper]

Great animation and concept, despite the not-so-subtle message. PG13 for language & violence. [h/t Internet Septic Tank Engineer]

UPDATE – Here’s the background from Wiki:

Logorama is a 16-minute French animated film written and directed by H5/ François Alaux, Hervé de Crécy and Ludovic Houplain, and produced by Autour de Minuit. The film depicts events in a stylized Los Angeles, and is told entirely through the use of more than 2,500 contemporary and historical logos and mascots.

Brother Phelps from 1995, with “Any Way The Wind Blows.” Naming the band after their Minister father, brothers Rickie Lee and Doug Phelps previously recorded with The Kentucky Headhunters.

“Honky Tonk Walkin’.” First I heard The Kentucky Headhunters was their electric version of Sons of the Pioneers‘ “Davey Crockett” and it cracked me up.

Bill Doggett‘s “Honky Tonk” was a classic instrumental hit in 1956 . Here’s the late Roy Buchanan‘s version.

Okay, that’s enough for today. Have a great weekend, be back here for more tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Island Soccer, ZZ Embarasses A Keeper, Pencil Test, Technological Threat & Rocket Pen

Saturday, 26 March 2011

Great video worth watching. Pure awesome. [via]

Remember “Zezu” Zidane’s infamous headbutt at the 2006 World Cup? He’s running a training camp now. Here’s some more of his dickery.

In 1986, this was state of the art computer animation. Here’s Pixar’s “pencil test” of the most recognizable early computer animation of all time.

In 1988,  Brian Jennings’ and Bill Kroyer’s “Technological Threat” combined digital animation with Tex Avery’s classic style. It was nominated for best animation short (but was beat out by Pixar’s “Tin Toy”).

So now, let’s fast forward to 2011. Computer animation is at its peak with this example of awesome. I love it.

And with that, have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow for more fun.
