Comedian Greg Barris and SNL digital short filmmaker Adam Epstein teamed up to make a video about real true love. And by real true love, they mean a passionate relationship with a puppet. God, there’s so much existential truth in this video. [You Tube]
It looks like animals can be just as musically inclined as humans are. I’m now a fan of Shanthi, the world’s most musical elephant. She’s not touring right now, but you can catch one of her harmonica ditties if you go visit Washington D.C.’s National Zoo, where she lives. Or you can wait for her music to become available on Spotify. Imagine how good she’d be if she had lessons. [Buzzfeed]
Snoop Dogg’s little girl, Cori B. is following in her father’s footsteps. This is her third single, “Daddy’s Girl”, from her forthcoming album Choc’s World. How did I miss her first two singles? May I just say that I love how appropriate this song is. It’s all puppies and cotton candy. No blunts or booty shaking. Just regular father/daughter shit. Only, Cori’s slightly more spoiled than most of us. My dad never bought me a custom, pink car for my birthday. Did yours? [Buzzfeed]
Sometimes the internet bestows us with gifts. Strange gifts that make us laugh so hard we cry. Sometimes we don’t even know what’s happening or why, just that it’s happening. It’s not for us to understand, just for us to appreciate. I present you with the doggie music video version of “Ima Read” by Zebra Katz (SNAKATAK Remix). To quote Julie: “This song needed dogs.”
Beware if you are planning to visit the Caribbean island of St. Kitts. There are a species of monkeys that will steal your fruity rum drink with the paper umbrella while you tan. BBC’s “Weird Nature” featured a segment about vervet monkeys, the alchies of the animal kingdom. And I’m kind of obsessed. But unlike us humans, the drunkest monkeys are the most well respected. I challenge you not to enjoy every moment of this video. Especially the part where the wasted monkeys roll around on the picnic table. You are welcome.
If you’re big whores like we are, you’re intimately familiar with the panoply of birth control options out there. The Pill. The patch. The Depo Provera shot. And of course, good old condoms. So we are delighted to hear there is a new option for those of us who are not responsible enough to feed and care for a goldfish, much less a baby: the birth control ninja. This tiny ninja hangs out inside your ladyparts and kicks the ass of any sperm that tries to sully one of your precious eggs. Quick, get yours now before the religious right gets them banned!
