Friday Links for 4/14/06

Holy crap, it’s the return (after its debut over a month ago) of…


1986 World Series Game 5: Boston Red Sox at New York Mets, Bottom of the 10th Inning – Re-enactment of the most infamous moment in Red Sox history. Understandably, the only way this can be done with any justice is by dubbing the original call of the inning over a recreation on RBI Baseball for the NES.

100 Unsexiest Men – Raffi comes in at #20. Then who’s number one? FIND OUT!

The Replacements Reunite – They’ve recorded two new songs for a “Best Of” compilation. No word yet on if there will be any further activity, but if they tour, I’m SO there.

Baby vs. Baby – I only link this because I discovered, with great disappointment, that it wasn’t a website showing babies doing battle. I’m not saying they have to fistfight, but how about some Baby Races? Or a Baby Sumo Match (where they slam into each other in rolling walkers)? That could’ve been a thousand times better than just finding out who people think is a cuter baby.

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? – Apparently not this guy. I realized they probably had to dumb down the show for syndication, but this is ridiculous.

Bunny Suicides – Apparently this was actually a published book. Get some sick fun before the cease and desist occurs.

Close Your Eyes, Click, Open Your Eyes – Actually…close your eyes. With them closed, move your mouse around a bit. Then open, and see if you can locate it. It gets me every time, but I’m also an idiot, so there you go.

Muhammad Meets Peter – What you were supposed to see on this week’s episode of “South Park.” It’s actually quite amusing that Comedy Central played right into Parker and Stone’s hands and overreacted so badly. It’s fine, though, because they got their fix in the end.

N Game – I found this when perusing my bookmarks and realized how much time I wasted towards the end of last year on this thing. Ridiculously addicting.

Great TV Shows That Never Were
Heatvision and Jack – A 1999 pilot for a series developed by Ben Stiller. Jack (Jack Black) is an astronaut who mistakenly flies too close to the Sun and as a result gains an nigh-omnipotent level of knowledge…during the daytime. He’s joined by Heatvision (Owen Wilson), a motorcycle that used to be his unemployed roommate. Ron Silver also stars as himself…which is presumably an actor/ex-astronaut with superhuman strength who is employed by NASA to capture Jack so that they can remove his brain. It’s as ridiculous as it sounds, and at times absolutely hilarious.
Lookwell – Adam West is “Lookwell,” an actor from an 80s detective show who is obsessed with his brief brush with fame…so much so that he becomes convinced he can solve any crime at any time. Developed by Conan O’Brien and Robert Smigel, passed up because executives didn’t think people would watch Adam West.

More later…

    Parker and Stone are known to not go after people posting clips (or entire episodes) online. Everything else, including clips of the “terrorist retaliation” – which is supposed to be an Al-Qaeda produced cartoon with American citizens, George W. Bush, and Jesus crapping on each other and the American flag – is still on YouTube. Interesting, no?
