"The Japanese Tradition" was a series of nine short, parody "How To" videos that gently mocked the formality of Japanese culture, from comedy duo Rahmens
) and Japan Culture Lab. They're available on DVD,
but nearly all of them can be seen on YouTube, including Sushi
(tea). [more inside]

URL shortening service for twitter.
"Senior citizens are the fastest-growing user group for twitter probably. And they don't have time to decipher most URL shorteners. The average senior citizen probably assumes 'bit.ly' is the URL for a Lithuanian overbite clinic; 'tr.im' looks like the homepage of an Islamic transportation consultancy. On the other hand, 'urlshorteningservicefortwitter.com' lays it all out on the table!" [more inside]

If there's one thing that MeFites are absolutely universal in loving, it's the TV show Mad Men. Right? Right? Well, here's something that even the haters will enjoy : Milk Men - A Mad Men Parody

JP Nicholas Reilly is a theatre (that's "thee-AY-ter
") artist who takes himself very, very
seriously. Most of his knowledge of the world comes from Hollywood blockbusters. Although his previous plays have sucked big fat hairy sweaty donkey balls, his latest production - about Hitler in college - promises to be his magnum opus.
And if that doesn't convince you, there's the wikification of the world, a phone call from Ira Glass, a Wii swapped for a Super Nintendo, and the Holy Fucking Grail. Watch.

"What are they talking about?"
Was it just an April Fools' joke? Are they really gonna end Red Vs. Blue
: arguably the most successful machinima
series ever? Will Blood Gulch be silent of one-liners and snide comments once more, or is this a blatant attempt by Rooster Teeth
to drum up interest in their 100th episode? Considering the fact they started it four years ago on
April Fools Day, it's really hard to tell. (surprise! no youtube links!)

consists of films which are... mediocre, hence the name. Night of the Zombie
. Batty Bat-Bat
. Gorgeous Tiny Chicken Machine Show
. Granted, it's not LG15
but I think that's what I like about it most. These short subject films are made by some guy named Greg, with help from other people whom you may
have never heard of before. Occasionally they also feature a guy named Adam
whom you might recognize but you may not be able to recall from where. It's funny. Well. I liked it. My girlfriend didn't. She said they were mediocre; to which I said, "exactly!"

Uncle Jay Explains the News.
Sit down and let Uncle Jay explain the current news headlines to your kids. (Not really.) Yes, it's YouTube, and yes, it's a one-link post. Don't let that blind you to the fact this guy is really quite funny.

Anyone presently surfing the net at work may appreciate Powerloafing w/ Cubicle Carl
. This miniature sitcom about a guy who goofs off takes place entirely in a cubicle – an admittedly thin premise that delivers more comedy than expected, with the current episode placing that cubicle on the Starship Enterprise. It’s co-produced by an Emmy award winning comedy writer
, (Mr. Show, Chris Rock Show, Mad TV) and a group of alt-comedians you'll recognize if you're a comedy nerd, including: supernerd Brian Posehn
and supergeek Blaine Capatch
. Interesting side note: it’s shot on a fake office set
in a small apartment in North Hollywood. Everyone works for free, even the semi-celebs, and it’s Creative Commons,
. NSFW, due to undeniable goof-off element.

Sometimes movies don't finish the way we'd like
. Short, off-beat, animated re-imaginings of selected movie endings, in torrent and .wmv format. The archives
are yet young, but might be worth keeping an eye on for future chuckles.

In a world...
where the success of an industry depends upon the creative ability of a few, greatness must be recognized. Imagine... five of the top voice-over artists in our country all in one car! Dan LaFontaine's

Remember that film which spread like wildfire across the net in
'98 nicknamed "Bad Day at the Office". It showed an angry office worker bashing his computer? Well the computer is back, and he ain't happy
