The Garrulous Bombast Friday "Take Ten"

You know how it is: the weekend's almost here, your brain has already checked out, and no one wants to do any work anyway. Time for a ten-minute break!


I thought today I'd (once again) clean out a lot of little miscellaneous doodads from the hopper. (I originally wanted to say "from the queue," but it occurred to me that that implies some kind of order, when in actuality...there really isn't any). Anyway...there's not a lot of thematic cohesion or anything to today's collection; it's just a random selection of Internet videos I found funny or cool (or both), and also a few indicators as to how I spend my online life. Also we may run a bit over ten minutes today, but...well, that's why we're here. To waste time. :) Enjoy!

First off, of course, from my friends at the Pretty Good Podcast, there's Benny Hinn - Dark Lord of the Sith. Benny Hinn is one of those televangelist faith healer types. This video shows a...a different side. :) In a related vein, PGP producer Elijah Black also posted this video, which is the same idea, but done more purposefully.

Speaking of PGP and Elijah Black... So I originally caught wind of this video, bizarrely, from Terrrible Minds, the blog of author self-described penmonkey Chuck Wendig. I thought it was just the kind of thing Elijah would like, so I sent it off to him. Then later on, listening to that day's episode of the PGP, I learned that not only had he already known about the video, he actually had broadcast it on the show already. :) Whoops! Oh,'s the thought that counts. In any case, I find this a fantastic display of both culture and talent. Enjoy a 4-minute history of hip-hop...told through beatboxing. Outstanding.

I...don't have any notes on this one, but I'm pretty sure it came out of the nebulous wastes of Facebook somehow. But anyway...I hope by now you're all familiar with Cee Lo Green's breakaway hit "Fuck You." it is set to sign language. Surprisingly, the chorus did not include the gesture I expected. ;)

Last, but not least, is a video I got pointed to by way of the new Earwolf podcast How Did This Get Made? It's..basically a montage of various Nicolas Cage hairstyles, set to everyone's favorite musical bed, Grieg's "In the Hall of the Mountain King." Hard to say which part of that is a bigger sanity drain.

And that's it for today, everybody. Happy Friday, and happy Valentine's Weekend!
