Babes and booms. Big booms. Former Miss USA, Tara Conner, and explosive expert, Rene Diamante, host the high-octane web series, Kaboom. The Yahoo Screen original series asks Rene to blow up all types of common objects such as ATM machines, vending machines and golf bags. Rene delivers big time by producing many “Oh S***!” moments. Each video is shot with slow-motion cameras from multiple angles and runs about 3 minutes long. The slow-motion is perfect for capturing the eye-candy: Tara Conner. Oh, and the items going Kaboom are pretty cool in slow-mo, as well. Check out the most recent video of Tara and Rene destroying a vending machine.
I am a Jerry fan. His self-titled television show, Seinfeld, changed my perspective on life and how I interpret the world around me. I am not alone in my passion for Seinfeld, however, I am a part of a smaller group who actually thinks that Jerry was the best character on the show. Okay, before you freak out…read me out. The 3 Stages of, and to, Seinfeld Stage #1: When people first start watching Seinfeld they are immediately drawn to the exaggerated and wacky Kramer. He’s wild and fun. Having Kramer as your favorite character is like having Michelangelo as your favorite Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. It’s easy to enjoy funny words, big sounds and weird things. Nunchucks…am I right? Stage #2: After one gets past the wildness which is Kramer, they immediately move to the eccentric, over-thinking George Costanza. George Costanza, or “Can’t-standz-ya” as he is sometimes known, thinks … Continue reading
When someone mentions Tom Hanks we instantly recall the following: Forrest Gump and it’s many great lines such as: “But you ain’t got no legs, Lieutenant Dan,” “Seat’s taken…can’t sit here” (not actually Tom hank’s line) and of course, “Mama always said ‘life’s like a box of chocolates.’” Saving Private Ryan and the scene where Hanks has been shot down yet still shoots his pistol defiantly at a Nazi tank. Philadelphia and his emotional stares in the court room. Big. Every scene in Big. Man, I wanted to play on one of those floor foot pianos! Also…”what’s so fun about playing with a building?” We think Tom Hanks and we think, Tom Hanks’ movies. The web series, Electric City, is clearly an attempt to change our perceptions of who Tom Hanks is. Rather than think “movie star”, I believe Hanks wants fans to think “creator.” Hanks has produced and directed … Continue reading
In honor of a summer filled with great superhero movies (The Avengers and The Amazing Spider-Man so far), which will conclude with the sure to be epic The Dark Knight Rises, I thought we should take a look at a new web series which just recently debuted at last week’s San Diego Comic Con. To best explain the new superhero themed web series, Save the Supers, from the mind of Sandeep Parikh, (The Guild actor and The Legend of Neil creator), watch this brief interview of Merman…I mean Sandeep…I mean…oh just watch! SPIKE Save the Supers Clip At Comic-Con www.spike.com Spike Full Episodes Spike Video Clips Spike on Facebook Save the Supers was actually written many years ago by Sandeep Parikh and Ben Benjamin. The Office meets superheroes show was actually put together before the Steve Carell Office had aired, according to Benjamin. The idea of a comedy documentary-esk … Continue reading
Who doesn’t love bowling? Raise your hands. Not so fast Captain Hook. I said hands, not hooks. Disqualified! Everyone loves bowling! What else does everyone love? TV! And what are some popular shows? Mad Men Breaking Bad The Walking Dead The Mythbusters Thankfully comedian Chris Hardwick and his Nerdist You Tube Channel created the aptly named Chris Hardwick’s All Star Celebrity Bowling. Though viewers don’t get to do the bowling themselves, they can still enjoy their favorite Television personalities attempting to not look ridiculous while bowling. Enjoy the episode below which features the men of Mad Men, in their burly beards. Clearly, shooting had ended for the season.
There are a lot of funny videos on the internet. Such an obvious statement…I am actually a little hesitant to leave it, but clearly not too hesitant seeing as it lead to this long follow-up sentence which would make no sense without the previous obvious statement. What was I writing about? Ah yes. Monkeys. Anyway, my personal preference when it comes to funny videos are ones actually created by professionals: writers, actors and comedians. Sure a sweet video gif of a dog jumping out of a moving car is always hilarious to watch over and over, but give me something with some depth or thought any day of the week…for about 5 minutes or so. With that said, I present Sketchy. Wait, wait! It’s not what you think it is. Unless, what you think it is is a sketch comedy web series that presents new episodes once a week, by … Continue reading
