"A man wearing bowler hat reading a newspaper is seen leaning leisurely against a car. Another person comes from behind and starts hitting the poor man on the head with an iron bar. He does not react at all, still reads his paper. The third man appears looking puzzled. The man takes his hat of and shows it to the other two. They take the hat and examine it." Beat The Bandit, 1961
is a video (01:46) presentation of amazing security/anti-theft inventions that you'll surely feel compelled to buy.

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.

It's 1972, and affable salaryman and good husband
Bill Holt quits his good job at 3M to become a musical pioneer from the comfort of his own basement. The resulting album, Dreamies
, is notable for its generous and ahead-of-its-time use of sampling/plunderphonics and became a highly sought-after lost classic until its re-release this year
. Bill now has his own website, also called Dreamies
, where he releases Eye Candy and Politics
in liberal doses. Some are hypnotic
, some are, for want of a better term, 'relaxing
', others are anything but
. And all of them are subtly infused with the slightly unsettling taste of Huh?

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
