on skateboard off skateboard

i was watching this skateboard gif at work cuz i thought it was pretty funny,
then i showed it to my coworker who genuinely also found it funny and was laughing and stuff,
but I think i was laughing harder than she was, because between the two of us, I prolly found it funnier,
So then our neighbor came over to watch since he noticed us laughing at it,
and even though he's a nice guy, he makes everything extra creepy and awkward.
His face had a confused look, like he found no humor in the video at all but wished he had found some humor in it,
and then he told us about how when the Hollywood Video was closing
he got like 20 DVDs for 2 dollars a piece,
and one of them was called, "The Internet's Funniest Movies" or something
and it had about a hundred clips on it just like this one.

RIP Ryan Dunn

In Bed with Chris Needham

this is great - perfect for Sunday morning viewing.

from VICE:

Professing a love for thrash metal is de rigeur for any city-dwelling young professional with an alcohol dependency and a Tumblr these days, but spare a thought for those suburban kids who fell in love with the genre in their teens back in the early 90s.
Nothing has better captured what it was really like to be a British thrash metal fan in 1992 than the classic, barely seen documentary, In Bed With Chris Needham, which was part of the BBC’s pioneering “Video Nation” series.
I fully expect somebody will track down a clean copy of this and screen it at film nights at bars for young fashionable people up and down the country within the next year. I don’t know if they have those kinds of bars in Loughborough, where this film was shot, but if they do, soon Chris Needham won’t have to pay for a drink in any of them.
This doc is pretty good from the get-go but it only gets more amazing the more you watch it. Key scenes: the little brother cameos, the girlfriend, the grandmother, the emotional rants to the camera, and the end scene promo video.
After you’ve watched it, check out this recent-ish interview with Chris here.
