Damn it! I was waiting for my posting rights to come back so I could submit a loop of this. More convenient than hitting the "play" button fifty times in a row.

I'm impressed by how many awesome things they managed to get into one short video!

Here's a loop for those of us who don't want to hit the play button fifty times in a row.

SQUEEEE!

That didn't sound very doleful at all.

Isn't it nice how a vapid and cartoony song can become something wonderful when you add Jake's singing to it? Ba-zing!

This is pretty great.

Oddly, when I saw that episode, the first thing that popped into my head was this relatively obscure video from 5 years ago.

That's the first thing I thought of too! But to be fair, I go back and watch that video at least once a year so I can giggle at "hyrup".

Woah mhum, major nostalgia moment right there. Also, yes, uncannily similar pancake-related beats. Accidental, or deliberate?

The high note makes me laugh every time.

Also great is the sing-alongable ukulele Extended Version, although it features significantly less New York and significantly better eyebrows.

This is why they invented mashups. Also, I actually made bacon pancakes for my daughter a little while ago. They came out pretty good, but not really much better than just pancakes with bacon.

So good on repeat

This is why they invented mashups the internet.

That Empire State of Mind song is fucking execrable, but Jake and Adventure Time and bacon and pancakes elevate it to sublimity.

Incidentally, this is pretty much what my life is like. I mostly can't perform any task around the house without singing about it. It must be really irritating to live with me, but mrs ozzy doesn't complain. Much.

Behold the power of Adventure Time. I seriously CANNOT WAIT until my kids are old enough to watch this show with me.

This is the perfect thing for a long afternoon at work just before a holiday. *hits replay again*

(Also, there's a part of me that thinks Jake has a certain "Jay-Z with a mustache wearing glasses" quality to him...)

I know! I've been listening to it for an hour and a half now.

Yeah, that can wear off after a while:

"Dad! Dad! You have to see this part!"
"Wait, Dad! This next part's funny!"
"Awesome this is the best one, I love this one! Dad!"

Despite Adventure Time's awesomeness, sometimes you just have to cook dinner.

Now I understand why that girl is on fire.

That would be Jay T. Dawgzone, author of the seminal work Mind Games

When I watch Adventure Time, I feel like that kid in American Beauty watching the plastic bag dance.

Since I read this elsewhere and now I cant un-hear it. I thought I should share. Concrete jungle wet dream tomato. You're welcome.

Bacon in pancakes? Sounds like something my (German) grandmother makes. She lines a huge pot with bacon, fill it halfway with batter, then folds the sticking up bacon strips over the top and throws is in the oven. She calls it "putt".

(Serve with either maple syrup or strawberry syrup.)

I have burned dinner due to Adventure Time being watched in an adjacent room. True story.

Dear AsMe: where can I find the best bacon pancakes in New York?

Holy crap that sounds amazing! I'm going to make a gluten-free version this weekend.

Man, the season opener a couple of weeks ago was good. They have really been filling in the show's mythology ever since the Christmas special about the Ice King's past.

I'm not sure how I feel about that. I think I liked it better when it was more mysterious.

God in Amsterdam I asked the very nice and very straight forward waitress if I could possibly have both apples AND bacon in my thin pancake and she said sure and that's what I ate for breakfast for two weeks straight.

You don't even need lunch with an apple bacon pancake in your tummy.

It's probably on record for the shortest season break ever. I was all bummed out at the cliffhanger and then, what, less than a month later we had new episodes?

i hate Futurama, especially Bender. but fuck if i don't have a crush on that same voice as manifested through an especially stretchy cartoon dog.
