Online Flicks for an Uninspired Monday

on February 2, 2009 - 12:12pm


I thought I would share a few videos with you to help fight off the Monday blahs.

First it's the Happy Tree Friends in "Remains to Be Seen". In this episode, the furry creatures deal with the disaster of zombies.

I think my favourite moment is when the manual lawn mower comes out.

You can see more episodes (including some with a Halloween theme) on the official website.

The second flick (below) is a music video brought to my attention by Eve Noir who thought I might like it. And I will admit, it has grown on me.

While I'm always skeptical of Hollywood stars trying their hand at singing, Ryan Gosling (in his band Dead Man's Bones) has a sound somewhat reminiscent of the Killers mixed with Dead Can Dance.

The song is called "In The Room Where You Sleep" and in this live video they show a children's choir with the kids dressed in Halloween costumes.


I couldn't decide whether or not I liked the song at first because I was distracted by the shouting voice of one off-key child that stood out from the rest. Watch for the little boy in blue in the front row: he's the culprit. Points for givin'er.

I'll be curious as to what the whole album sounds like when it comes out this summer (hopefully without little Screamer McHowlerton in the background).


I'd heard vague whispers of Dr. Horrible's Sing Along-Blog, but didn't bother checking it out until ShellHawk blogged about it yesterday.

It's a series of episodes based on an aspiring evil genius who has his own web blog.

You can watch it on the official website...IF you live in the States. Unfortunately, we (Canadians) can't even see a trailer for it since they are using HULU, and HULU has limitations on access.

While I can appreciate people wanting to protect financial agreements detailing which companies have the rights to air a product, I'll never understand how American corporations believe limiting all online access - especially to countries who don't have any exposure to the product in question - will benefit them. Fact is, if I can't even access your trailer online, I certainly won't be buying the product until I've seen some of it, which leads me to either a) dismiss it completely or b) look for copies of it online that I CAN access.

So if you are a citizen of an unworthy country, and you want to learn about this show, I encourage you to go to youtube.

The final video for today has nothing to do with Halloween or Horror at all, but since I've already crossed into Sci-Fi with Dr. Horrible, I thought what the heck. The original video was posted by Joe Nicolosi on vimeo.

He describes it as such:

My friend Amanda had never seen a whole Star Wars film. When I asked her if she wanted to watch the original trilogy she said that she would, but that she already knew what happens. So I took out my voice recorder and asked her to start from the top. I then created some very basic animation in Final Cut to go along with her narration.

I haven't had a good laugh like that in a long, long time.
