Weekend Fun Vids

Some fun stuff for the weekend.

The internet is truly a wonderful invention.  Without it, we’d be deprived of clips like these that make us weep for our civilization.

The first clip is a cover of the great Pink Floyd song “Comfortably Numb.”  If you can make it through without weeping, you are truly made of sterner stuff than me.

The second simply defies explanation.  It comes from a Norwegian television show and . . . just watch.

The last one is from the same show and is actually kind of a amusing.

Hope you enjoyed them all.  And remember, all complaints can be addressed to Tito.

    Paul, just delete this post and call it an act of charity. The Comfortably Numb performance was atrocious, and I say that as someone who appreciates it when an average bar band attempts to play something challenging our different. i.e. I’d rather hear a less than stellar performance of Whole Lotta Love than a respectable performance Proud Mary. I was ticked off that the guys in the video made me suffer through that singing only to end the end song before before I could be either amazed or brought to tears of laughter as the guitar player attempted the Greatest Solo – and with a Gibson no less.

    The other two videos were tortuous but informative in a way. For some reason I thought Larry Hagman was dead. I’m sure he’s happy to find me wrong. :) It was also neat so how good Bo Derek still looks and I had forgot all about Samantha Fox existing.

    Why do I get the feeling that a Norwegian TV guide is dominated by American sitcoms and evening soaps from the 1980s?

    Come to think of it, if American TV was that way, I’d probably watch it once in a while.

    Tanya Harding with a femullet. It’s always nice to see a minor celebrity wholeheartedly embrace her destiny that way.

    How does Bo Derek look no older than Samantha Fox?

    On a serious note, hearing “We Are the World” makes me think that was a much more innocent time. I mean, all these people got together and sang a song, and actually thought it was going to make a difference. They were wrong, of course, but somehow it’s kind of touching that they believed it. Could that be done now with a straight face?

    Eh, I think I’ll leave it up as an act of communal penance.

    That thought occurred to me as well. If you’re gonna go that far, then you have to tackle the best part of the song. It’s like doing a cover of “Layla” and then stopping before you get to the guitar and piano solos.

    As a child of the 80s, I’d say so.
