Sizzler Promotional Video

This is easily the most 1990s thing I’ve seen in a long time and I might love it.

Also, Sizzler’s Italian Bar was what’s up, and I miss it terribly.

The Greatest Badminton Rant I’ve Ever Seen

There aren’t many times I’ll post sports-related content to eTM, but when I do, you can bet it’ll be high-quality stuff like this 2004 rant by Mary Carillo.

It’s solid gold, people.

Solid. Gold.

Tale as Old as Time

The first trailer for the live action Beauty and The Beast hit the internet today and it’s a welcome respite from the total shit-sandwich last week was.

Watch it. Get excited. Do a little jig. Take your mind off of how awful everything is for a few minutes.


The “Wonder Woman” Trailer Is Here

While I want to stand firm on my “fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me” position on the DC Extended Universe, this trailer for Wonder Woman kinda makes me wanna go see the movie. Like, a lot.

And, to its credit, it features 800% more colors than either Man of Steel or Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Boredom had, so maybe lessons have been learned?


The Best Political Ad in the History of Political Ads (Probably)

Re-elect Gerald Daugherty so poor Charlyn Daugherty doesn’t go crazy, people.



Ted Cruz: Not “Going to Come Like a Servile Puppy Dog”

After not endorsing the sentient Cheeto of Hate that is running for President of the United States last night, Ted Cruz doubled down this morning by saying he’s “not in the habit of supporting people who attack my wife and attack my father”.

I’m getting this weird feeling in my brain.

It feels like… respect.

Respect for Ted Cruz.

…we live in a weird-ass world, you guys.


GoPro View of Cheetah Run

If you’ve ever wanted to see what it would look like if you were shrunken down and riding on the back of a cheetah while they were running, the Cincinnati Zoo has you covered.

Spoiler: It’s awesome.


“I’m on a Boat” with Classroom Instruments

I’m a big fan of the Classroom Instruments bit on “The Tonight Show”, and I’m an even bigger fan of The Lonely Island, so this is kinda a perfect storm for me.

Should All Locks Have Keys

Given the hullaballoo over the idiotically-dangerous “Compliance with Court Orders Act of 2016” that was released in draft form today, I thought it might be wise to remind people why strong encryption is a good and necessary thing. Fortunately, this video does all the legwork for me, which is really rather considerate of it.

Animaniacs Tour 2016

The New York Times reports that Rob Paulsen, Jess Harnell and Tress MacNeille will be touring the country to perform popular songs from “Animaniacs”:

History buffs might be glad to hear that Mr. Paulsen will perform a new verse of “Yakko’s World,” which was written before the Soviet Union broke up, in 1991. The song has been frequently nitpicked for its omissions and shortcuts, and the new verse will add any nations formed in the past 25 years.

“Animaniancs” is my favorite cartoon of all time, so they can just go ahead and take all my money for tickets right now, thank you very much.

And if you’re not familiar with “Yakko’s World”, (a) where have you been hiding all these years?! and (b) please see below.
