I see a video like this and it reminds me that sometimes I say to Laurel “I can’t really draw” and she laugh’s at me and tells me I’m just doubting myself. I can copy somebodies drawing style, but I can never really find my own. When I sit down and really want to draw something I can never think of anything. I think I need to start doing still life or something just to get my hands back in shape. I know there’s good drawings in there somewhere.
This video both rocks and/or rolls. I’m always interested in what other countries think of the US, I don’t know if this was making fun of us… but I love it. The video features a dangerous level of sexy Italian women in skin tight pantsuits and the awkward ‘OK’ hand sign from what looks like “Italian Borat” is hilarious. The lyrics are NOT in English, but they sound like they are. So think of this whenever you’re inappropriately making the slit eyes and saying “Ching Ching Cong” … It reminds me of a post on ask.metafilter about what gibberish words non-english speakers use to make fun of americans.

This video, besides being awesome, explains exactly what goes on at music festivals.
Let me explain…
1.) So there’s this crazy guy going nuts, he could be actually crazy, or he could be crazy-high. Regardless he’s having a great time and totally going for it. At first everyone is unsure if he’s going to give up, or have a seizure, or flip out on everyone. but when that time frame passes everyone decides that he’s harmless.
2.) Then comes in the slightly less crazy guy. That guy you know that’s always down to back you up on any foolish thing you might get into. At a festival there are tons of these guys, these are good festival peeps. So after a few minutes there are a couple other people around him doing their goofy, “I don’t care because I’m at a festival and haven’t showered for a few days” dance.
3.) The third wave are still fun festival people, but they’re so stoned that it took them a few minutes to realize that something was going on on the other side of the hill. But when they see that it’s not a scary fight, they really want to join in. So they all get over there and start wobbling and jumping around.
4.) Then the final group of people join in. They are the “I’m wearing a sundress girl” or “college t-shirt and sandals guy” The I got invited to this festival by a friend and I thought it would be a good time. They’re down for fun, but they’re too scared to just go for it unless there are a bunch of other people doing it.
Festivals need all these types of people to be great. They’re about getting together with a bunch of other sweaty people and just letting it all out. There’s something about not caring what people think that’s very liberating.
If we just let this crazy guy dance alone, then the terrorists win.
This video is a little long and sappy, but it does make you want to go out and have a really good beer. I really like Craft beer, my favorite recently has been Southern Tier Unearthly IPA. I just feel like ST puts so much flavor into their beers. I’m not the kind of beer snob that can’t enjoy a few Miller lites now and then. But these brewers really do put in some work and produce beer that they can be proud of.
This is the best tribute to douchbags since My new Haircut. They’ve clearly got the stereotype down to a science, guys at the office wearing bluetooth headsets, affliction t-shirts, aviator glasses playing beerpong. While I do like some of these activities individually I do acknowledge that it might make me look like a douche.
