"It's impossible to keep up with them all, and that's a good thing."

"When Words Fail in Movies," "The Elevator," "A Homeless Ghost: The Moving Camera and its Analogies," "A Theory of Film Music" (a reply to the previously posted "The Marvel Symphonic Universe"), "The Revenant by Tarkovsky," "Fritz Lang," "The Dark Knight--Creating the Ultimate Antagonist," "Honolulu Mon Amour," and "Sound Unseen: The Acousmatic Jeanne Dielman" were just a few of the videos selected multiple times as "The Best Video Essays of 2016" (see also 2014 and 2015, previously). But one response chose to honor a series of parodies of the form: Why is Cinema, e.g. "Screenwriters! Do the Best Words Now!"

The Adventures of Donkey Ollie, or, The Greatest Anime of All Time

Beloved YouTuber Cr1TiKaL (aka penguinz0) has teamed up with Kaya Orsan to provide commentary on the serialized Christian CGI animated series (with an unexpected live-action segment) Donkey Ollie. After the break, every single episode three ways each - Cr1TiKaL's cut-down version, Kaya's full version and the official version (funded and made available for free by the charity Boat Angel). To start, Episode 1 (abridged with commentary, uncut with commentary, original). The series has a surprising history, as revealed in the comments of the Boat Angel videos (e.g. Episode 4's) - animated in the 00's, but recorded in the late 80's and early 90's. [more inside]

A very edgy Denis Leary Christmas special, straight from 2005

Old St. Nick’s got bourbon breath, It’s so cold you could catch your death, A cop sold me some crystal meth, It’s a Merry f**king Christmas ♫ And thus opens Denis Leary's Merry F**king Christmas, an explicit holiday special from Comedy Central in 2005, for all those who love Christmas—and for those who can’t wait until December 26th. Obscene parodies of holiday classics and celebrity guests including Charlie Murphy, Carmen Electra, William Shatner, and the Barenaked Ladies, plus a GWB impersonator -- something to upset everyone.

"I do not want to be in the cars. The cars are my prison."

It was me and Leno puking our minds out while we drove around Los Angeles. It seemed like things couldn’t get any worse, but then while we were stopped at a traffic light, the backseat of the car opened up and in climbed my comedian friend Steve Harvey and without saying anything Steve Harvey started vomiting right along with me and Leno. The three of us filled the 1979 Porsche with vomit and then Steve Harvey opened the door and left the car as silently as he had entered it, leaving Leno and I alone in the ruined Porsche.

Our first Magic 8-Ball president.

While book-reading president-elect Donald continues to tweet and finally speaks with the New York Times, he also generates news: property in Argentina, conflict of interests and the foreign Emoluments Clause, Foundation tax returns, NASA funding, New York protection costs and disruption, flip-flopping, the Climate Accord, a musical, ending the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and not attempting to prosecute Hillary. New appointments include DeVos as education secretary and Haley as U.N. ambassador, with Michael Flynn tapped as national security advisor. Beyond Trump Tower, the results in three states may be challengeable or challenged, and in the ongoing count, Hillary's popular vote lead exceeds two million (live spreadsheet). [more inside]

Thomas the Tank Engine Like You've Never Seen Him Before! (NSFW, SLYT)

They were the stories that have charmed an entire generation. From the books, to the television series, people around the world have grown up with the Railway Stories. But the truth behind Thomas and his friends is no childrens story. It is a story that begins in wartime Germany, and ends with a discovery that would change Thomas, and his friends, lives forever.

Siberian farmyard rap goes viral! And the crowd goes wild!

Do you listen to a lot of hip-hop in in the Yakut language? Me either. But that changed when I happened upon the story of Ayal Adamov, Monty Python fan and student at Northeast Federal University, Yakutsk, Sakha Republic, Russia. One day, he heard a song that celebrated bling and money and conspicuous consumption. He felt a profound sense of disgust and, in response, composed a song that celebrated his own, humbler, rural roots. The accompanying video has to be seen to be believed; it is embedded in this article in the Siberian Times.

Several Witty SF/F Stories from 2015--Some Humorous, Some Serious

Heather Lindsley's "Werewolf Loves Mermaid," Sunil Patel's "The Merger," and Emil Ostrovski's "Tragic Business" develop humorous situations from SF/F motifs: cryptid romance, intergalactic business negotiations, and the cycle of death and rebirth, respectively. Lincoln Michel's "Dark Air" combines common weird fiction / horror situations with a very dry, very dark sense of humor. Naomi Kritzer's "So Much Cooking" is a serious SF story about a grave possibility, but it brings the matter home via a witty parody of a cooking blog.
