Last month was the 25th anniversary of Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time!

David Erick Ramos' 10th Anniversary video. I saw this when it came out 15 years ago (it seems like a different lifetime). David does a lot of ocarina videos, both playing and reviewing the many ocarinas in his collection.

David Erick Ramos plays OOT music:
Title theme

Kokiri Forest (combined with Lost Woods from A Link to the Past)
Shop Theme
Zelda's Lullaby

Studi Ghibli-inspired fan film.

The Return of Ganondorf, a fun film that I used to watch all the time on Newgrounds.

Robin Williams commercial for OOT 3D

Medley by the Guitar Brothers.

OOT medley from Smash Brothers Ultimate

Something about Ocarina of Time. Think of it as a fan animated abridged series of sorts.

Ocarina of Time With Lyrics. If you're not subscribed to Brentalfloss yet you're really missing out.

Parody from Powerpuff Girls.

Lindsey Stirling does a Link cosplay and plays a violin medley. Lindsey is someone else you should be subscribed to, here's my favorite Christmas video from her as long as we're in the festive season.-

Life with Navi. I think I also saw this one on Newgrounds first.

An April Fool's movie trailer for a fake OOT movie. It's sad to think that the real movie won't be as faithful as this.

It's been four years since I schilled Pocket83.

He's mad that his favorite brand of pencils are now garbage.


While I'm not obsessed with pencil quality (although I do prefer 100% wood shafts to this pseudo-plastic nonsense they use these days), I can respect his anger. I've certainly been passionate about much sillier things myself, I am not one to judge.

I may have posted about John C. Worsley's Trek music videos before, but I can't seem to find it. Anyway, he likes to do a Christmas-themed one each year:

Santa, When the Claus Fell
You're a Mean One, Mr. Spock
All I Want For Christmas is Q
Wonderful Deep Space Nine
Tuvok, the Vessel's Vulcan
Enterprise Rock (I'll call a Christmas truce with Enterprise)

Other Trek/Christmas filk songs

Make it So
Twelve Days of Star Trek
It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Starfleet
Janeway Pi Rock

And now some miscellaneous Trek/Christmas crossovers (mostly just appropriate Trek clips to a popular Christmas song)

Santa Baby
All I Want For Christmas (if you're not a Janeway/Chakotay shipper I'd stay away from this one)
Let it Snow
Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree

Times when Christmas appeared in Trek

Picard's Nexus fantasy
Voyager is now a Christmas tree ornament

I've known about Kate Mulgrew's role as Mrs. Colombo for awhile now. My parents were big fans of Colombo (and a lot of other independent detective shows for that matter, a list would quickly become exhausting).

Well, here are the first ten minutes of the pilot. Seeing a babyfaced Mulgrew wasn't the surprise, seeing René Auberjonois was. I haven't seen him in a beard since his cameos on Frasier!

Wintergatan continues to work on the Marble Machine 3, and this week he visited an antique musical instrument museum to get some inspiration. Or to put it more simply, he's going to build music box tech into the part of the marble machine that reads the music.

What fascinated me was the notion that you could have the music box cylinder move slowly along the axle like a screw to make new pins available to be played.

To celebrate Christmas Disney posted "Once Upon A Studio" on YouTube.


My biggest complaint is that for a 100th anniversary tribute, some of the voice doubles that they found were just awful. And I mean awful.



But fair is fair, I was touched by Elliot pushing Cody like Marahute would do.

So Walmart cashed in on the popularity of the Grinch in a commercial


So yeah, this is offensive.



And I thought that the Singin' in the Rain VW commercial was the worst exploitation possible.

Yeah, that's offensive. Capital One's been running ads with the Grinch too but I don't think they're outright rewriting the book's moral.

So Steamboat Willie is in the Public Domain now


I hadn't watched the whole thing in years. It's not as good as I remembered.

Glynis Johns died today.


I'll skip right past the obvious Mary Poppins links.


The only other Johns movie that I've seen is The Court Jester



The Pellet with the Poison's in the Vessel with the Pestle (Third base!)


How could I forget that she cameoed on Cheers?


Costarring with Jimmy Stewart in "No Highway in the Sky."

Steve Harwell of Smash Mouth died last year, and I just found out.


I can't articulate what Smash Mouth meant to me growing up. I tried, but it was a fairly long and boring screed. Let's just say that I encountered the band's music a handful of times before I tied it all together and became a fan. The band's music represents an important period in my life.

It's always nice to see two of my favorite YouTubers do a crossover

Saturday Night Live sketch where Patrick Stewart and a bunch of people pretending to be the TNG crew serve on the Love Boat instead.


It must be seen to be disbelieved.

It's been five years since I shilled for James Lileks, but in today's rummage through his archives I found a Star Trek joke.

Junkball gives a retrospective on the USS Jenolen.


Stay until the end for Doohan's Data impression from the Relics audiobook! For some reason he makes Data sound like a TOS android.
