Dissociated press.

Remember when we used to run fivers through dialectizers or Altavista Babelfish? This is the same kind of idea.

How to play Poohsticks


It's always fun to see people pretend to take simple tasks so seriously.



I can't remember the last time I played Poohsticks...

EC Henry tackles the real-world value of gold-pressed latinum.


He concludes that you can't go much lower than 1 slip=$1.



A reddit user wants to say 1 slip=50 cents and 1 bar=$1000


This investment site sets 1 gold-pressed latinum (presumably a slip) at $0.626.

It seems weird that just after I posted about She Drives Me Crazy the musak at the store I work at started broadcasting the real song as part of the Valentine's season. (And of course Weird Al did a parody, but I don't have that album, I'm fuzzy on his early work).



Oh well, might as well do a roundup of love songs...


A Letter to Hayley. I still think that Hayley Mills deserved more fame than she got.



Love Story. I first encountered this through a Betty and Veronica AMV. I really should look deeper into Taylor Swift's discography one of these days.



My Life Would Suck Without You, Riker/Troi style. Have I posted this one yet?


I Love The Whole World/The World is Just Awesome. Who says love has to be between people? I love lots of places and experiences. Boom de yada...


This Kiss. Faith Hill's another artist whose discography I should further explore...


She's My Girl. I've been a fan of lipsynchORswim's Lehrer lipsynchs for awhile (I don't think lipsynchORswim was even his YouTube handle when I discovered him, it's been well over a decade...)


The Way You Look Tonight. I'm pretty sure I've posted the Astaire version somewhere in here, so here's Frank Sinatra (Don't let anyone tell you that Frank is better than Fred at this song, but that doesn't mean it's not worthwhile).


Till There Was You. A rare cover made by the Beatles. Listen if only for the pronunciation of "saw" as "sawr."


Jason Manford covers "Hushabye Mountain" from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Parental love can be just as powerful as romantic love, isn't it?



All I Do is Dream of You, covered by Doris Day. She certainly puts her own spin on the song. Rats, another singer I should research more. I still know her more as an actress than a singer.



Cheek to Cheek, another Frank Sinatra cover of Fred Astaire. How many of these did he do?

As Long as You Love Me. I'm not ashamed to say that I liked a few songs from the boy band era. Not necessarily "good" music, but always FUN music.



Head Over Feet. It's ironic that Alanis is more than just "Ironic", right? Ugh, maybe I should leave the jokes to Ed Byrne...

It's always interesting to play "Six Degrees of YouTubers." Since the audiences of similar YouTubers tend to be similar, you get a lot of overlap between fanbases.



Stuart Ashens is a key hub for British YouTubers. He started before Channel Awesome (any of them, including longtimers like Cinema Snob and Spoony), before the Vlog Brothers and their galaxy, before almost any current "big" YouTube reviewer besides the AVGN. (Because Guru Larry pestered him, Ashens was even a part of Channel Awesome for a short time, so that connects him to that corner of the Internet).



Anyway, last year he did a video with Tom Scott, which I only discovered today. And of course Tom Scott has crossed over with Numberphile, which opens an entire galaxy of connections. As soon as you get to Numberphile, you open up the Vlog Brothers, CGP Grey, Vsauce, Vihart, etc.



I'm not sure if I had a point (besides "watch the channels that you've never heard of, they're worth it), but since when does everything have to have a point?

I've commented before on Digimon themes that sound like Pokemon themes, but what happens if you put Pokemon characters INTO the Digimon theme?


I laughed long and hard at this one. I also find it interesting that they used the Red/Blue versions of the characters, not the actual anime ones. The use of Unknown instead of the Digicode characters was also a nice touch.

A compilation of the Pokemon dub themes.


When it comes to Pokemon I jumped ship towards the end of the Advanced arc. I still think of the early years of the franchise fondly. It just irks me how generic the themes started to get after I left. They don't really feel like "Pokemon" music anymore.



Meaningless aside, but can anyone tell me why Ash is still the main character? At this point it's just getting ridiculous. He's been on his journey longer than the intended audience has been alive. Would people stop watching if the main character was changed every generation? Two or three years should be enough for a character arc without looking like wheel spinning.

A new meme: the movie that was number one in the box office on the day you were born will give you an indication of how the rest of your year will go.


Here's a site to tell you what that movie was.



I got On Golden Pond. I've only seen the 2001 Andrews and Plummer version, not the Hepburn and Fonda version. I don't recall much of the plot, so I'm not sure what to think.

So it's CGP Grey's tenth anniversary.


It doesn't seem like that long.

Since it's my birthday, I've decided to do a roundup of Trek birthday clips...


McCoy gives Kirk a birthday present and toast.


Tuvok's Birthday Cake. For some reason Janeway thinks that Tuvok isn't a hundred years old yet, when he's actually 112. You'd think the writing staff would have settled this question when they decided he was on the Excelsior.



Riker tricks Worf with a surprise party.

Channel Awesome presents an idea for Back to the Future IV.


I'm not sure of how much I like it, but it's at least interesting to consider.

After over twenty years I thought that I knew all of the secrets in Ocarina of Time, but I guess not. I just learned a few new ones from this video.
