Monster Snopes: Uncontacted Tribes

A few years ago I saw picture showing a tribe that was "uncontacted". A few days later, I thought I heard the famous pic of the tribe looking up at the helicopter was fake. Then a few days ago Doctor Girlfriend shared a link  claiming that it was indeed real.  There is also this:
Can anyone help me? Is this real or not?

MOBFD Celebrates Radiohead's new release.

It's Friday, guest week at kicked ass and Thom Yorke just got paid Via @the_lin_see

Rastamouse Follow-Up

At the beginning of the month, Gabe (via @bridgetorr) introduced us all to the fantastic children's show Rastamouse. Since then, there's been 15 episodes, the majority of which are available to watch on the BBC iPlayer (of course, UK only) and probably a few on YouTube if you can be bothered searching. I've watched most of them, usually with a few of my friends despite us all being a bit over the target age of under 6. Apparently we're not the only ones, at least according to the Daily Mail (who we all should usually be cautious about trusting) who say the show "has garnered a cult following not seen since the Teletubbies, with a single - 'Ice Popp' - already recorded... and has been sold to international broadcasters, with a range of merchandise in the pipeline." My birthday is in a week, could you all get me some of that merch please?

Concert Addict's Weekly Unused gif Round-Up

Even though I usually manage to fill the SNL and Thursday Night TV threads to overflowing with .gifs, there are always a ton left over that I just never get around to using. It's really sad to let these gifs go to waste so I figured I would dump them (in no particular order) here on MOBFD for you all to enjoy.

These gifs were "found" all over the internet. Some may even have been made by me.

I'd Literally Hit That: Your Brother

So, as you may be aware, our very own This Is My Nightmare took over the reigns of Our Fair Videogum on Monday. And guess what? It was awesome! I mean she totally posted videos and used words to make lols and everything. Incredible. And guess what else?

WOWEEWOWOWOW! 120 comments is so many comments. “That’s a lot of comments….er…ding dong?” – Gabe (yore-2012). Clearly people like-a the “I’d Totally Hit That.” I mean, what’s not to like? Jokes? Good. Pictures? Good. Graphic descriptions of how Nightmare would like to [REDACTED] [REDACTED] Ryan Gosling with a [REDACTED] while [REDACTED] James Franco [REDACTED] [REDACTED] mystery butt? Great.

So, seeing as one good “I’d Hit That” deserves another, here’s my latest installment of “I’d Hit That” literal-style! My posts are similar to Nightmare’s but instead of “hit” being a euphemism for “OHMYGODWHATISTHATIDON’TEV[REDACTED]MYEYEEEEES,” I use the term literally to mean “punch.” Get it? Sure you do. Who am I hitting this week? Your brother.

MTT: The Super Exlusive Dead Friends Club

Here we are again. Time for ol' Papes to set you readers straight. This one is a sad one so grab a Kleenex if you are so inclined.

I like movies. I like movies a whole lot. I can't tell you the last name of 50% of my ex-girlfriends but I could rattle off to you the entire dialogue of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie. Some people's brains work differently. Don't judge me. However, there is one type of movie that always sticks in my craw...biopics. Being a time traveler, it is very frustrating to see events that you've witnessed with your own two eyes being completely falsified for the big screen. Books I can deal with, who reads books anyways? Wikipedia? Please. I don't even mind students being taught incorrect history for generations and generations, but movies? Movies should be held to a higher standard. Movies should get it right.

Cause in point:


HEY - So it's been a bit over a week with the Jukebox up ( ) and it seems to be going pretty well!

There have been a couple of outage issues on my end (Laptop Fell Asleep!) but beyond that, stable and steady as she goes.
I want to take a moment and throw out some of the FAQ's that have been coming at me and answer them appropriately and with any help I can offer visually via screen shot.

Legends of Note: Talking Heads

Hey gang, let’s talk music once again! Today’s legend in question is none other than one of the most interesting and unique bands to come out of America in the ‘80’s: Talking Heads. It’s sort of bizarre to me that David Byrne’s highly idiosyncratic spaz-rock art band is virtually a household name at this point, largely due to the band’s highly-successful, highly-unlikely hit “Once in a Lifetime.” There is an argument to be made for its popularity being owed to a new interest in music videos fostered by the advent of MTV, but again, Byrne’s now-famous nerdy dance moves are not the stuff of fame (then or now, really).

Baby Friday's Safari Planet

Anyone who knows me knows that I get pretty weird around animals. I thought I’d blog about it, for your amusement. Here is another one of my encounters with a random animal.
All right you lucky devils, time for another installment of Baby Friday’s Safari Planet. Since the focus thus far has been heavily on kitties, I thought I’d mix it up a little bit and delve into…PARANORMAL DOGGIE ACTIVITY!
No, this isn’t an article about Skeledog (sorry, LBT). This is an article that may challenge your very belief system about the universe and its many wonders. You may feel shaken, unseated, as though right had suddenly become left and up had sudden switched with down. That’s okay. It’s normal. For what I am about to tell you defies even scientific explanation. I will now inculcate you into the mysteries of the Picnic Table Dogs.

Gums of Our Lives: Episode 12

“So… do we have a plan?”

A Serious Monster was getting antsy. It had been several hours since she first made contact with the Hybrids, and all they had done up to this point was fiddle with dials and make horrible puns.

“Calm down, ok? We’re formulating a flan.” Facetaco said, glancing up from one of the computers.

“Mmmm. Delicious flan.” Polythene Pam piped up from behind a stack of equipment.

“Bleep Bloop flan plan.” R2D2 Esq. shimmied.

“Seriously. These puns are getting really annoying.” A Serious Monster angrily interjected.

“Sorry. We can’t help it,” Facetaco shrugged. “It’s a side effect of the hybridization process.”

Girl Philosopher nodded. “It’s markedly worse when we’re around other hybrids. Usually we can control it by ourselves. David Hume!”

A Serious Monster had to stifle her vomit.

“Hey. Be careful there, Retch Armstrong,” Facetaco called out.

“Yeah, Little Retchard” Polythene Pam chimed in.

“Bloop Blorp Puke Skywalker.”

LBT's Generic Book Corner: The Handmaid's Tale

So I have kindof wanted to bring up this book since I first had the idea to chat into the I-ether about books, because, and for once I am not being hyperbolic, it is in my view one of the most terrifying paranoia-inducing books I have read, ever, EVER, and I seek that shit out. If you peruse TVTROPES (do not peruse TVTROPES, as you will never escape), the terms Paranoia Fuel and High Octane Nightmare Fuel most definitely apply.

In short, at first I was:

Monster Movie Club: Winter's Bone

The concept of “drug culture” has some instant and fairly specific connotations for most Americans. Due to the enormous media presence of hip-hop music and shows like The Wire, the look, lingo and social structure of urban drug dealing are an almost inseparable part of our society today. While we may try to frame trafficking in the context of crack's tragic toll on the inner city and the brutality of street life, there in also undeniably an element of glamor to “the game”, with some of the biggest stars in music having grown up slinging on the corners and now singing about it in chart topping hits. Even David Simon's arch-villans drive Escalades, have any woman they want, and are general bad-asses.

Gettin' Anchory: Why hip-hop gets a bad rap

Welcome to Getting’ Anchory, a semi-regular feature where Anchor Management (see what he did there?) rants about the aspects of popular culture that get him riled up, to appease the demon monkeys that live in his head. Also, to make fart jokes.

It all started on November 22, 2010. Pitchfork gave Kanye West’s latest album “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” a perfect 10. Ever since, I’ve had many discussions with hipsters friends to defend to quality of MBDTF and the fundamental appeal of hip-hop itself (the terms hip-hop and rap are commonly used interchangeably, which is fine, but to be accurate hip-hop is the entire subculture and rap is the music that comes out of that. I will use both terms to denote the music to reduce repetition. On with the show!). After the initial shock of Pitchfork giving a non-super obscure indie band a perfect score and the subsequent title spot on many year lists, there was an enormous backlash, mostly from people who either hadn’t listened to the album, hated Kanye as a person or disliked hip-hop in general. But their disliking of the album actually displayed a deeper grudge against all rap music.

Things I Submitted To McSweeney's That Were Ultimately Rejected

On rare occasion, fozzy the chair submits writing of a silly nature to McSweeney's Internet Tendency. He has only had one thing published there so far. These are the things that have been rejected.

Of Course I Know All 1,892 of My Facebook Friends
by fozzy the chair

Are you kidding, Brad? Of course I know all 1,892 of my Facebook friends. They’re my friends, why would I accept their friend requests if I didn’t know them?

That’s Donald. We went to high school together. He was in my homeroom, kind of a shady dude. I’m pretty sure he stole my sister’s iPod from a party I had over spring break one year, but I might be wrong.

Blake. She’s my best friend from college’s friend from home. She met us in New York once and we all got wasted in some Indian restaurant, and then we lost her in the Upper East Side for a while. Actually, I think I went home before we found her. But look at her pictures, she obviously turned out OK. Thank you, Facebook.

Hera- Feel So Good

I don't know if this is popular in the Internet somewhere, but I saw this a few years ago in Canadian TV and it reminds me a lot about Videogum monsters. It's just a regular music video-but dang it, she's our spirit animal.

Here's more info on her.

Monster Fit Club - Week 7

Hey you guys, shellbomber here. Nightmare is absent from MFC school today. I think she's doing something else? I'm not sure.

Soooo, how did this week go for everyone? Last week I had a slight problem staying on the wagon when it pulled into SocialSituation town (pop. everyone else). This week my booty is firmly placed in the driver's seat, seatbelt fastened. I'm now 14 el bees down. I'll try on my purposefully-ordered-too-small wedding dress again when I hit an even 20.

Steve Winwood the rapper?

So, this morning I got an email from Steve Winwood. Apparently he and Chris Trash have been "in the lab with a pen and a pad trying to get this damn label off." Not really sure why he sent it to me. I guess because I'm the resident fake rap expert? Anyway, here it is, for your enjoyment.

Dear Mountie

In this week's column, we have a Monster who has a crush on another Monster! Just in time for Valentine's Day (my favorite holiday after Christmas)!

What should a Monster do if they have a crush on another Monster? Asking for a friend...

Ooohh, this is a good one! Gosh, there are so many variables that it's sort of hard to answer this without knowing more. However, I'll do my best.

Guess the Mystery Butt #2

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY MONSTERS!!!! (who wants to be my valentine?!?)

The answer to #1 was, of course, the greatest black golfer (and ladies man) of all time - Barack Obama. Congratulations Principal Enchman, you earned it!

As a single man I have absolutely no shame in google-searching for mysterious butts on this the most prestigious of holidays, I'm sure. So without further ado, here is the second butt for you to identify:

Monster Movie Club: Tell No One

Tell No One
Think of your favorite music albums. I would bet that most of them are not concept albums. I bet most of them are collections of great songs bundled together. Sure there might be an unifying theme, but for the most part you can just listen to a song or two at random and still get the same enjoyment as if you were to listen to the whole thing. Tell No One is like that. Sure, it’s also a thriller with psycheee out twists and a long story, but that is not what makes it great.  The movie works because unlike most modern thrillers, it builds on the characters before the action get underway.  This could have easily gone very wrong. Think cookie cutter, Ashley Judd & Tyler Perry wrong.  Maybe the movie could have been shorter, but then it would have to cut one of two things: the utilitarian, move it along scenes or the simple artistic snippets which are sprinkled throughout.
The point is this: Tell No One has some great scenes. Take the opening  for example.  (Light spoilers & such)

I'd Hit That

As most of you know by now, tomorrow I will be Guest Editor of Videogum. This is really exciting news, right?! Well because of this, I have been prepping all weekend for this epic event. The bad news is there will be no "I'd Hit That" today, but the good news is that there will be an "I'd Hit That" tomorrow...ON VIDEOGUM! So stay tuned.

Instead what we are going to do today is take a vote on which one of these banners I should use from here on out. You have your choice of three:
