Beer for kids!

It’s about goddamn time!

Okay, so it’s actually just apple juice designed to look like beer, but this is still pretty funny if you watch it and imagine those kids are drinking beer. Japan is cool.

Why are pandas so goddamned funny?

Seriously, thoughts? Everything they do makes me laugh. I just replayed this like six times and couldn’t stop laughing. I’m not sure why…

Don’t get me wrong…

I mean, I still hate the Rangers, but this is cool. The chant in particular is pretty awesome.

Maybe he drank that kid’s goddamn apple juice…?

Since we’re still getting lots of visitors (yesterday was a new traffic record), the ODT staff feels obliged to keep posting stuff to keep everyone entertained.

Though most of you are finding this joint via searches of various permutations of “alex rodriguez” (personal favorite search: “arod jeter gay”), the search for “retarded people” is still flying high in the rankings. I’m not sure how to feel about that. But it does make me laugh.

So does this, as long as you add the appropriate amount of concern for the youth of America or whatever.

I guarantee you that kid does not appreciate this video being all over the interwebs. “Thanks Mom…”

Suck it, Jeff Brantley

Saw this gem over at Fire Joe Morgan (obviously…I barely read anything else on the Interwebs these days), but figured I’d share it with you folks as well.

Basically, Jeff Brantley/95% of sports broadcasters are retarded and make up random claims whenever they feel like it. This video is a bit of sweet vindication. I’m not sure if Brantley still has that curly mullet thing going anymore, but if he does, this is some vindication for that too. How? I don’t know. Whatever. Enjoy.

The Collective Audio Unconscious

I was listening to NWA tonight and I was reminded of this totally awesome video that breaks down the, uh, break that forms the beat for “Straight Outta Compton” — as well as about 70 billion other songs. This is totally geeky, but it’s an unbelievably detailed deconstruction of the history and context of sampling and how it relates to the one drum break that has literally shaped modern music. Hip-hop and drum ‘n’ bass/jungle fans in particular really ought to listen to this mini-lecture at least once. Commence nerdery…now!

ODT’s Best Albums of 2007, Part One

So here we go. I had to rank my top 10 for Prefix, so I figured I’d just rank a couple more for this list. Other than the top few, it was harder than I thought it would be. Here’s the first group of records, with more coming in following days.

15. Justice: Cross [Ed Banger Records]

justice_cross.jpgSo hip. So trendy. So obvious. So what? Either you love their sound or you don’t. I do. That dirty, fuzzy noise has made these Parisians blogosphere darlings for long enough that dickrider extraordinaire Kanye West took notice, going so far as to nab the director of their amazing video for “D.A.N.C.E.” in an attempt to rip their steez (see his “Good Life” vid), but he will never be half as cool as these guys. I wanna smoke cigarettes with them sometime. I bet they even hold them all cool-like.

See the video for “D.A.N.C.E.” and read about more awesome music below.

When I’ve been fixed

So here’s the last batch of songs before we blast through the albums that made 2007 awesome. These are three of my absolute faves of the year, so I’m not going to go all pretentious fake music critic on you. Just listen and enjoy.

No pic on this bitch because you’ve already seen Okkervil River. This song rocks mah FACE! Goddamn RIGHT! If it fails to excite you you’re probably dead INSIDE! Emphasis on every last WORD! UNNHH! I need MEDICATION! BADLY!

Okkervil River: “Unless It’s Kicks” [from The Stage Names, 2007]

More bestest songs of the year as judged by some Polack with random taste in music after the jump.

I smashed up the gray one, bought me a red

pimpc.jpgAnd so it begins.

This was a fantastic year for music. The last couple years were good, not amazing, but 2007 totally made up for it. Every genre — and by “every genre” I mean rock, hip-hop and electronic — came with some bona fide gems, and even the stuff that wasn’t amazing was still better than some of the best stuff the past two years had to offer.

After hours upon hours of refining and arguing with myself, I made a list of my 30 favorite songs of the year. Thing is, I couldn’t think of any good way to present it, and some of the songs I’ve already blogged about.

I decided I’m basically just going to throw out a random assortment of songs that took up a chunk of 2007 for me, and spit a few thoughts on each. I’ll do a few each day, in no real order of any kind.

So, uh, here’s one that’s awesome:

UGK: “International Players Anthem (feat. OutKast)” [from Underground Kingz, 2007]

Read on for more about this baby as well as a couple more songs, and one of my favorite videos of the year.

Ghostface = Redonkulous

What the hell is he talking about? Jay-Z would never release a video of himself hawking an autographed hat on eBay. And that is precisely what makes Tony Starks a bad muthafucka. Good times.

I can’t wait to see this dude with Rakim and Brother Ali in November. That show definitely has the potential to make my year. That really isn’t saying a whole lot because this year sucked my BALLS, but still … a compliment is a compliment.

Just for fun, click below for one of my all-time favorite Ghost moments.

“You really thinking ’bout buying that shirt?”

Lil’ Royce brings Kanye and Common into the studio to show them what real hip-hop is all about. It’s a touch long, but there are some classic moments in here. Lil’ Royce out this bitch!

Vodpod videos no longer available.
