We Can Rebuild Him... Pervis' Got Tools

Mike Judge (King of the Hill, Beavis and Butthead) directs and Titmouse (Metalocalyse, Superjail!) produces an animated music video for the Zac Brown Band (categorized as "country, Southern rock, bluegrass, reggae and folk" in Wikipedia) that has nothing to do with the song. Ladies and Gentlefolk, somebody with an excellent sense of humor presents: Robo-Redneck.

Nice shades, Doofus.

Hank Williams Jr. was removed from Monday Night Football on ESPN after a bizarre and rambling appearance on Fox & Friends this morning. The noted political analyst and future senator compared the President to Hitler, and later referred to the President and Vice President as enemies. [more inside]

"Redneck mansion."

Dream-like "redneck mansion" is (disappointingly) actually a theatre set, but still a great bit of architecture.

"Almost true freedom."

Off The Grid: Life On The Mesa. A new documentary explores life in 15 square miles of northern New Mexico. With no cops, no official authority, and barely any understanding of who even owns the land, a special environment has arisen. Hippies, rednecks, and other assorted loners exist in either the last outpost of true American freedom or "the largest outdoor insane asylum" - and then they are tested by self-proclaimed revolutionaries with their own idea of how to run things. Check out the official MySpace page for the trailer and some clips.

Driving a pick-up truck with "Man Love Rules OK" across Alabama

Would you drive a pick-up truck with "Man Love Rules OK" across Alabama? (YouTube video) The presenters behind UK motoring/male-entertainment show Top Gear did. See what happens when they pulled into a "gas" station. More information here. Do you think the footage was manipulated?

Like Jackass, but funnier

Bored dork with truck, goofing around. Hilarity ensues. I know I shouldn't laugh, but after watching this over and over again, I still can't stop snickering. [jackass-style google video called "redneck surfing", 16 seconds long via Jalopnik]

A pronounced deficiency in IQ

Redneck ebonics triumphs. Merriam-Webster online now gives "nu-kyu-lar" as an alternative pronunication of "nuclear." While dictionaries have become more descriptive and less prescriptive over the years, shouldn't they at least list it as [idiotic variant]?

The 2nd Civil War

The Battle of Blair Mountain. Do you know the origin of the phrase "Redneck? In 1921, in West Virginia, after brutally corrupt regional law had employed thug tactics including false imprisonment, seizure of property, and murder (or simply "disappearance") upon the local mine workers to discourage labour Unions from forming, an army of nearly 13,000 workers took to the streets, meeting up with the forces of the murderous sherrif at an area known as Blair Mountain.
