Dance Video Of The Day

So there's that.

From Alison.



WTF?! Commercial Of The Day: Mac's (NSFW-ish)

You see a spot like this and think, "Ok, what the fuckityhell is that?" Then someone tells you that Mac's is (was?) a convenience store chain in Canada. And you say, "Oh. Canada. Ok."


Vid Of The Day: Play Him Off, KC

Gawd. Change your tampon and STFU already.


Movie & TV Locations On Google Street View

Ever wonder where they shoot exteriors in some movies and TV shows? Too bad, because I do. Here are some real-life iconic locations from the street view function on Google Maps (which is not the same thing as Google Earth).

Fight Club

The hose scene

Vertigo

Jimmy Stewart's apartment

Boogie Nights

Donut shop robbery scene with Don Cheadle

Six Feet Under

Fisher Funeral Home

Se7en

"What's in the box?!"

Pretty Woman

Balcony scene at the end

Driving Miss Daisy

Miss Daisy's house

Back To The Future

The McFly house

Lethal Weapon

They jump off this building in one of the movies. They jump off something in every movie, usually with an explosion right on their heels.

Halloween

Where Jamie Lee is babysitting. Is this where the murders happen? I can't remember.

Fast Times At Ridgemont High

Brad and Stacy's house. They had a pool, as I recall. Heh heh.

Fight Club

Edward Norton goes to a 12-step meeting

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

The sculpture from a scene I don't remember.

Close Encounters Of The Third Kind

Devil's Tower, alien landing site and subject of drawings and mashed potato sculptures. Looks almost like a painting, doesn't it?

Rosemary's Baby

The apartment building where they all lived. This is also where John Lennon was murdered IRL.

The Brady Bunch

The Brady house -- three bedrooms for 8 people. Four, if you count Alice, but hers was more like a closet off the washroom. I never understood why she didn't quit.

Boogie Nights

The titular disco at the beginning of the movie.

Pee-Wee's Big Adventure

"Can you say.. adobe?"


Lo-Fi Music Video Of The Day

A nice Friday song from web sensation Julia Nunes.



From VSL:


We’ve all learned the hard way what a wonderful time-waster YouTube is. But, can the site also take credit for launching a respectable music career?

Last year, college student Julia Nunes became an Internet darling when her homemade videos developed a devoted following. The clips were lo-fi and charming—generally featuring nothing more than the adorable Nunes, a messy dorm room and her ukulele—as she sang covers of Kanye West, Weezer, Destiny’s Child and the Beatles.

Now Nunes, 20, has gone global: She’s opened for Ben Folds, is currently on tour in England and recently released her second album, I Wrote These (which, yes, she did). Songs like “Into the Sunshine,” “The Debt” and “Pen to Paper” are melodic, sweet and utterly catchy, and the more melancholy, like “Stairwell,” show her emotional depth. We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again: Thank you, Internet!

There's nothing I can say to make this picture more awesome. But feel free to caption and/or Photoshop it.
