UH UH UH Marvin Gaye Mash-Ups: These Marvin Gaye mash-ups are like the best thing ever, Hova's Girls Girls Girls and Outkast's So Fresh So Clean mashed with Let's Get It On led to my mind being figuratively and literally blown on Friday morning. (via The Animal Show)
Belle & Sebastian - Dancing Queen: Saw this on Dave's fbook the other day, Belle & Sebastian covering Abba's Dancing Queen - effin awesome. (via)
8 Animals Suited Up For Battle: Animals in clothes can be very cute or very gag worthy but Animals in suits of armor can only lead to great things. (via Gizmodo)
To be LD, You need to dress like LD: It's ever so great to have Curb back on TV, and now you can dress like Larry David! Now even though LD is going to reunite the Seinfeld cast to get back with Cheryl and that's GREAT, I think he should really find a way to keep Leon all season after he dumps cancer ridden Loretta.

21 most awesome Super Hero Mods for My Little Pony: Being a dude, I don't think I had any My Little Pony toys but I think I'd do a thing or two to get my hands on that Han Solo in Carbonite MLP. (via Comics Alliance)
We here at OAB (me) are fans of Dan Deacon, and I think we can all agree whether you like his records or his antics on stage, that this poster is pretty rad. Even more "rad" is that Dan Deacon set up this contest where if you can name all the cartoon characters you would win the following: 1) $500 cash (YES) 2) A portrait of you painted by Dan Deacon. (DOUBLE YES) 3) One of the last copies of Wham City Box Set #1.(TRIPLE YES) 4) A copy of each of Dan Deacon's first eight impossible-to-find releases: Silly Hat vs. Egale Hat, Meetlemice, Goose on the Loose, A Green Cobra Is Awesome vs. the Sun, Porky Pig, Twacky Cats, Live 2003, and Acorn Master (QUADRUPLE YES). So get on it, y'all, we can split the 500 bucks.

According to Dennis, I have every single NFL player on one of my 768 fantasy teams but he seems ot have a point as I do have Larry Fitz and I do have him and it happens to be in an ESPN league. HERE WE GO FREE AUTOGRAPH, HERE WE GO!
There's no need to really say anything about this video other than watch it right now. But this video is 100 times more awesome that I remembered it was, and with all the animated things that are going on here, I think it's your move MC Skat Cat.
Community's Kevin Spodnik, Kenny, Me, Jerry Seinfeld's bookie, and the bookie's friend circa December 2007.
James Franco holds a flame thrower: Honestly, if it was any member of the Freaks and Geeks cast with some sort of high end weapon such as Jason Segel and a hand grenade, John Francis Daly and an uzzi, Martin Starr driving a tank, or Busy Phillips in a stealth bomber, I'd post it. (via BWE)
Suzy's back blogging: I've always enjoyed my friend Suzy's tumblr, Whatevs a lot as it's really good but she took a well deserved break and she's back now and it's awesome. Also great minds and stomachs think alike. (via Whatevs)
500 Days on Zankou: SNL's Abby Elliot in this 500 Hundred Days of Summer parody about a girl and chicken instead of a girl and JGL, funnier and slighter less depressing for guys who like depressing 80's Brit-pop and a misinterpretation on the end of the Graduate. (via The Daily What)
John Stockton with another assist: Workday conversation on the gmail chat between myself and Kenny seem to have at least one or two twenty minute link sessions to different Onion articles, and yesterday's was focused on the Onion sport page. So start with the Stockton article and go nuts. (Via The Onion Sports)
Pavement's Central Park Residency Fall 2010: Love Pavement, bought tickets to the Tuesday show but this is kind of, sort of ridiculous. (via Brooklyn Vegan)
Shit Kenny Says: Okay, Brian came up with this idea on Sunday after Kenny was spouting off one liners between beers during the One O'Clock and Four O'clock games. My fav - "I bet Mark Sanchez has a bigger cock, but Eli has one more ring." Question is - cock or super bowl ring? (via SKS)

I just ate Queso Burrito and should be full but NOM NOM NOM to this pizza topped with double melted chocolate chunks, melted marshmallows and candied hazelnut crunch bits. Think it's time to run down to the Max Brenner on Broadway between 13th and 14th right now, I still have like a half hour on my lunch.
One of little Ryan's biggest regrets is that he always wanted a hamster when I was little but never got one. While I don't have any particular use for an iMac, I've always been attracted to colorful things, so why not combine little Ryan's regrets with big Ryan's love for colors and possibly think about dropping $350 on eBay for an iMac hamster cage.
Jon Stewart's offer to Lebron to come to the Knicks consisted of I love New York Mug, a burger and shake from Shake Shack, and A T-Rex vertebrae from the Musuem of Natural History? Is he trying to woo LBJ or TTPBCD
"According to reliable sources, it's finally happening in 2010! There will be multiple, possibly four, nights of shows at NYC's Central Park Summerstage in September of that year. That could be part of a tour. That could be the end of a tour, the middle of a tour, or even the beginning of a tour, but it seems reasonable to speculate that they might make their official comeback at Coachella in April."

There's the line in that song by the National, So Far Around The Bend where Matt Berninger sings about the typical confused girl who moves to New York in her 20s who's getting high through apples and "praying for Pavement to get back together," I guess things are potentially looking up for that fictional lady.
Now that Crazy Swayze is in the big Chip and Dale's in the sky, what's the appropriate SNL related tattoo?

Add this to things I need for my cubicle at work: A couple months ago I filled out a "getting to know" staff spotlight for my department newsletter that is probably never going to see the light of day. One of the facts I included is that "my cubicle is a mess 16 out of the 20 days of a work month" but I'd know say it's about 18 out of 20 and this genius sandwich/cupholder thingamajig over your keyboard would help bring down the mess number to 15 out of 20 hopefully.

10 Bands That Prove Emo Wasn't Always for the Hot Topic Tween Set: Remember when emo wasn't a dirty word? The Get Up Kids, The Promise Ring, Sunny Dale Real Estate, Braid, Texas is the Reason, Pinkerton era Weezer, The Jimmy Eat Worlds! At 26, one of the bands* on the list is still my favorite band and has been for the past 8 years or so. (via Paste Magazine)
Grizzly Bear - While You Wait For The Others (The Video): You put out Veckatimest, you make a surreal video for Two Weeks, you have MICHAEL MCDONALD sing lead on the b-side for While You Wait For The Others, and now you put this video out, yeah Grizzly Bear is definitely maybe in the running for band of the year. Your move Animal Collective. (via Spinner)
Robot Abe Lincoln to be the 47th President of The United States: After Obama, I think it's a smart move to elect robot versions of all our favorite President's to the nation's highest office. Robot George Washington, Robot FDR, Robot Abe Lincoln, Robot JFK, Robot Martin Van Buren, and Robot Barack Obama to name a few. (via Paul Scheer)

Simple math equation for all of you If x is sum of Mike Vick's Dogfighting + Plaxico's sweatpants + Tom Brady's ACL + Peyton Manning's commericial shots + Donte Stallworth's DUI manslaughter + Brett Favre's Favreness, and y is the Oregon Trail, Tecmo Bowl, and Madden '92, I'd be safe to assume that X times Y = greatness. So check out the video, drink your gatorade, and don't die of dysentery.

Things we need more of this season - Emmitt Smith. With a Emmitt-less ESPN, I guess we'll be getting our fix with local news spots like this where the former Cowboy confuses running backs names Jones, states for cities, and shows his affection for pork.

Jay-Z - Hate (featuring Kanye West and Aziz Ansari): Let's be honest; no one enjoys hearing a DJ talk all over a new track. There's always an exception though and it's Aziz Ansari and his random stream of consciousness over the Hova and Kanye give and track track off of The Blueprint 3. (via Aziz is bored)

I know this has been out there for a month or two, but Logos, the second release of Deerhunter's Bradford Cox's Atlas Sound side-project hit the interwebs, and Panda Bear featuring Walkabout is in the running for jam of the year in the 2009 Oranges Apples and Bananas awards*. Get to listening to y'all!
* Please notet that there is no such thing as the Oranges Apples Bananas awards and what you will probably get is just a bunch of My Year in Lists... features at the end of the year.
Hova's talking about how he has the Mayor on his pager on Hate off freshly leaked The Blueprint 3 so we should known that he also had the digits of one Gov. Dave Patterson. Right?
