I don’t know if I’ve talked about this on the blog yet, but I really got into the McElroy Brothers this pandemic. They’re a trio of funny podcasters who are branching out all over the place, from DnD podcasts to other podcasts to graphic novels based on their DnD podcast. They’re funny guys!
To help ease you into checking them out, they’ve got a ton of animatics on YouTube, where animators take some funny bits from their podcast and set it to animation. This gorgeous piece of work comes to us from animator Christian Dobbins.
They’re funny guys, I’m tellin’ ya! Go ahead and search around YouTube for some more of the animatics.
They’re main podcast is called My Brother, My Brother and Me. And they’ve got a bunch of other work out there. They had a 6-episode TV show on Seeso that’s now available to watch if you make a temporary account on VRV. I did and the show is great!
But yeah, this is just me sharing some excellent comedy and that great animated video that Mr. Dobbins just put out!
This cartoon is making the rounds and it’s pretty fun! It’s a speech by Stan the Man about the power of cuss words, recorded by collaborator Aron Fromm. And it’s animated by Richard Plata, among others. Pretty fun stuff.
And it’s the perfect sort of easy thing to share on this, the day after Thanksgiving. I’m relaxing at home and trying to decide how soon is too soon to watch the new episode of The Mandalorian…
The Mandalorian is back and the first episode was great! The second episode is out today, and I’ll watch it later tonight. Can’t wait! Until then, here are a couple of cool Mandalorian things I’ve seen on the internet in the past week.
First up is this cool anime-style Mandalorian opening sequence by Malec. This thing is sweet as hell!
Heck yeah! That’s what the internet was made for: showing off the creative abilities of all us wonderful people in the world!
Next up is a cutesy Christmas short from Star Wars Kids, so it’s an official Star Wars production. It’s also in LEGO.
There’s a new LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special coming out later this month. You can check out the trailer here. It looks OK. I don’t watch the Star Wars LEGO movies and whatnot, so I don’t know if I’ll view this one.
But all of this reminds me that I still need to build that LEGO Razor Crest I bought…
So it snowed for the first time this season last night. That’s fine. Tomorrow is Election Day in America. Ugh. And I’ve got a busy, but fun, day at work today. And not much else to share on this nice little blog. So how about this nice little cover of the X-Men animated series theme song on 8 cellos?
Cellist Samara Ginsberg has been doing a lot of cello covers of a bunch of famous songs. And that sounds like a really good thing to do on YouTube. So more power to her! Exactly the sort of innocuous, fun thing we need right now.
I recently became a fan of the YouTubers at Girlfriend Reviews. They are fun, funnier and delightfully musical. Behold, their Fall Guys parody song!
Bonk My Head is a parody of Break My Heart by Dua Lipa, who I’ve never heard of before. I thought this was a Girlfriend Reviews original! Oh well. Parody is just as good! And hopefully I can make you all fans of Girlfriend Reviews.
