Have you checked out Crackle lately? If not, you may want to go ahead and check out a couple of these goodies; The Bannen Way, Angel of Death starring Zoë Bell, or Star-ving with David Faustino and Corin Nemec.

They have quite a bit of really great original programming to choose from, like Penn Says (prev)

Here's an old trailer for Star-ving that's pretty funny.

Comic-type people may be interested in Angel of Death, it was created by Ed (Captain America, Criminal, Sleeper) Brubaker. Seems like it doesn't work in Canady, but possibly one of those go-round dealys can help with that.

High gloss, no substance. Miles better than Funny or Die or Collegehumor, but Crackle still hasn't found a formulae for short-form original digital content, as, I'd argue, Bannen Way and Star-ving both perfectly illustrate.

Every link:

"The video you are looking for is not available.
Try one of these instead Show Guide"

Then you click on the Show Guide and there's one movie listed there: Jace Hall. Click that link and "sorry, but this video is not available."

Perhaps this is for Americans only.

Is there any sentence including the words "go ahead and" which would not mean exactly the same thing after their excision?

Just wondering.

They've got Dr. Strangelove. And Hulu's got Sparticus. And Netflix streaming has Full Metal Jacket, Barry Lyndon, and The Killing. But no one has 2001. The state of Web video is weird.

I watched that David Faustino thing a while ago and just kind of felt sorry for him. For one thing, it's not clear where the parody ends and his actual life begins, and for another it was just unfunny - one episode had a gag where the punchline was Faustino was wearing tighty-whities with a big skidmark on them.

pompomtom: "Is there any sentence including the words "go ahead and" which would not mean exactly the same thing after their excision? "

The sentence ""Go ahead and" is often used as a rhetorical flourish". is both a counterexample and a response to your query.

You can "go ahead and" I will go behind.

Wonder no more!

The Streamy's just announced their nominations this morning. Web TV is a growing field of entertainment. Most is still terrible, due to lack of talent, budget, and equipment. The Streamy's tries to highlight some of the best of web TV.

Among my favorites are Legend of Neil, Compulsions, Blue Movies and Key of Awesome. Check them out if you get a chance.

Well, I guees I don't feel so bad for trying to point out something that I thought was good...and it actually is deemed good...at least outside of Snarkville.

P.o.B.: "outside of Snarkville"

The level of snark on this post is light enough, I would call it praise by faint damnation.
