In case you missed it, this happened at the Boston Bruins hockey game last night. Major kudos to the singer, who just stepped back and let the moment happen. We truly are an astonishing nation sometimes. It’s just sad that it takes such tragedy for us to come together as one.
I know many of y’all have probably already seen this video, but figured I had to post it because it could very well be the most brilliant and simultaneously most horrific practical joke every played. Funny thing about human nature, how we love to scare the living shit out of each other, and watch. True [...]
Kindness. Sometimes it takes just a little creativity and a little effort to make a world of difference. This photo taken in Hoboken, NJ. Hang in there, folks.
Just to get you through that sometimes grueling home-stretch, the weekend just within your grasp, I give you, Walken reading “Honey Boo Boo” transcripts. Hat tip LAist. Enjoy.
Paul Ryan’s video diary. Re-dubbed. Pretty damn funny.
Just because it’s Thursday…and we all need to smile. And this did the trick.
The Femto Camera. A camera that takes photos at ONE TRILLION FRAMES PER SECOND. It records light. Yup. Absolutely mind-blowing. It is innovation like this that I believe will eventually allow us to teleport, ala Star Trek and Time Travel. I’m serious. The Singularity is near.
Opportunity sends us this extraordinary panoramic view of Mars from an area called Greeley Haven. http://panoramas.dk/mars/greeley-haven.html Couldn’t find a way to embed it on our site so you’ll have to check it out on the NASA site. Here’s the blurb describing what you’re seeing: This is the latest panorama released by NASA July 2012. It [...]
What is the responsibility of the media? The Press? The News? Whatever the hell it is they are calling themselves these days? Now that we are smack dab in the middle of these strange times when the news and entertainment are so hard to discern from one another, what truly is the role of those [...]
Check out this Twitter feed called #RemoveOneLetterPlays. The idea: basically remove one letter from a famous play and tell us what it’s about. Boom. Kinda funny if you’re stuck at the office waiting for the day to end. Hat tip Rob Weinert-Kendt at The Wicked Stage. A couple of gems I grabbed: Rozencrantz and Gildenstern [...]
I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, Louis CK is quickly becoming – if he hasn’t already become – the Mark Twain of the Twenty First Century. Check out this interview with Jon Stewart where he describes the bizarre evolution of a simple tweet and how easily information can be misconstrued and twisted [...]
Hey, who thinks that this Baby Alien from the movie Promethius (awful film btw) looks a lot like one of the Fringe Freaks from the Hollywood Fringe Festival? Exhibit A: Exhibit B, left hand side, can’t decide if he looks like the Brown Freak or the Purple freak. Maybe a combo? Someone send me a [...]
Flash mob on a Copenhagen Metro. Classic. Hey, if the “unwashed” won’t come to us, guess we’ll have to bring it to ‘em.
Is there really such a thing as a coincidence? Or do we fear that that there is actually a grand design and we just don’t want to really take a look at it when it makes its self visible? Follow me on this one. So my brother sends me this new Proclaimers video (see below) [...]
A little video created by the Lost Moon Radio gang. These were some of the highlights of their “all request” requests for their show coming up on April 18th. Pretty darn funny.
We certainly live in different times when THIS is the epitome of our “troubles” and how we now deal with them. A brilliant commercial from the people who made the movie Mirror, Mirror. Brilliant marketing as well.
The first Super Hero. Hat tip, Lee Wochner.
Just thought I’d take a moment to put the pause button on all things theatre and remind everybody that we are witnessing an actual slaughter of a people by its government and no one is quite sure what to do about it. Reminds me once again of how impotent and ridiculously worthless the United Nations [...]
Since we’ve been on a Dramaturg kick lately here at the Lemon, thought I’d offer this latest ditty. This motif has been jumping around Facebook and now there’s one for the Dramaturg. Eat your heart out, Dylan Southard!
With all this talk of LAUSD considering cutting Arts Education completely from Elementary Schools, I am continuously buoyed by the ability of private citizens to creatively teach our children about the arts outside the classrooms. If the public school system simply fails in its mission to educate our youth, well, then its up to the [...]
My buddy Rainn Wilson has finally embraced the fact that he looks suspiciously similar to a young Newt Gingrich. You can see it here. Hmmmmm.
MacHomer at the La Mirada Theatre for two nights. Presented by Phantom Projects Theatre Group, a company that purports to be “one of the only groups in the nation that produces theatre specifically for a teen audience (and their parents!).” I’m not really sure what that means. Nevertheless, yes, MacBeth done by The Simpsons. A [...]
I’m on a Louis CK kick these. He truly is a modern day Mark Twain. Here he is on the ridiculous – and in many ways insidious – nature of social media. Captured perfectly. And hilariously.
This is just funny for so many reasons it’d be a shame to get into them.
Siskel and Ebert uncensored. Priceless.
So I’m watching this video and at first I’m thinking, I know this is a freakin’ frog, but this is animal cruelty, and then I got to the end and realized that, ah, yes indeed, all is stil right in the universe. Enjoy.
Someone sent this to me today. Tim Conway and his “Elephant Story” (mostly ad-libbed) on the Carol Burnett Show. Man, I loved that show.
You wanna talk about Flash Mobs and Street Theatre? This is the real thing with real consequences. And it is powerful. This is serious stuff going down in Syria. These people have continued to assemble and rebel and dissent while their heavily armed government slaughters them in cold blood. Watch as the woman holding the [...]
Watch as William Shatner offers his warnings on deep frying your Turkey. This is actually better than his version of Elton John’s “Rocket Man”. High-larious theatre.
