Have you heard of Simone Giertz, the Queen of Shitty Robots? Her funny YouTube videos back in the day were a hoot, and I’ve been watching more and more of her videos recently. She’s developed into a really cool crazy invention person. And so I thought I’d share her newest contraption: turning a Tesla into a pickup truck!
This is just a fun video I wanted to share. I need to share more than just comic movie parody videos. There’s a whole, wide world of fascinating YouTube out there!
Tig Notaro is a hilarious stand-up comedian who is quickly gaining more and more attention. She has just launched a new web show with Funny or Die called “Under a Rock with Tig Notaro”. In these videos, she meets a celebrity she does not know and tries to guess who they are. It’s pretty damn funny.
Consider me subscribed!
Longtime Henchies know that I’m a big fan of Robin. He’s one of my all-time favorite superheroes. And now animated fun guy Noah Sterling has used his nifty YouTube channel to run through the history of all the Robins. Fun times!
Yeah, the history of the Robins is weird. But fundamentally, Robin is awesome. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Also, since this video was made, I think DC is retconning their retcon and Stephnie Brown did serve as Robin. It’s confusing, but important to note.
Double also, while I’m on the subject, I’m starting to wonder if my disinterest in DC Comics as a whole these days has anything to do with the lack of a fundamental Robin. The team of Batman and Robin hasn’t been a thing for a while now. Damian Wayne is, technically, the current Robin, but he hasn’t been his father’s sidekick for years. He’s off running the Teen Titans and hanging out with Superman’s son. Tim Drake has been retconned back to being Robin, but he’s also been his own man for a while, and now he’s running Young Justice. Duke Thomas became Batman’s new partner, but DC went and gave him super-powers and made him The Signal instead, and now he’s a member of the Outsiders.
So DC simply does not have a Batman and Robin team, which is really disappointing. As much as I love Robin, I mostly love him in the context of being Batman’s partner. So I dunno, I think I’m just griping. Fun video, at least.
The geniuses at FXitinPost have re-made the lightsaber battle between Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars: A New Hope. My hat is off to them. That battle is pretty lame, and they turn it into the coolest lightsaber duel of the entire franchise!
These is a really well-done editing job, and some great lightsaber choreography! My hat is off to everyone involved!
I hadn’t planned on posting so much Star Wars content, but when it’s a random Tuesday and Tell It Animated is awesome, how about a Darth Vader video?
This guy does great work! These are fun videos. I wish I had the talent to come up with a fun YouTube series. I’d be on easy street!
