Today's Mighty Oak


It’s been a year. But at least we got some videos to celebrate its end!

Here is DJ Earworm’s United State of Pop:

And a bonus from DJ Earworm, all the top songs from 1970 to 2020:

And of course, the year in search from Google, always a great/tough one to watch:

I’ll be back with my own end of the year wrap-up(s) soon!



Alright, let’s see what we have today, little bit of a video heavy one, but let’s go with it!

For Star Wars Day, Heathrow added flights to destinations in the Star Wars galaxy to their boards.

In good news, Ireland is looking to prosecute practitioners of gay conversion torture.

The trailer for POSE looks so good:

Spoilers for Infinity War, but here’s a great break down of the real villain.

In that vein, want to see if you survived the final events of Infinity War?  Click here.  Spoiler, I didn’t make it.

Also related: straight people shouldn’t write about gay ‘culture’ if they don’t know what they’re talking about.  Bad NYTimes.

The music video for Deadpool 2 is amazing:

It’s a little heavy handed, but good on AIG and the All Blacks for these awesome new jerseys!

Two classic Mega Man games are being re-released….on cartridges!

I ran the marathon a few weeks ago and had a blast!  I talked with the guy filming this, but we didn’t make it in, but still a really cool video!

Required reading: Dan Savage eviscerates a gay republican and it’s so perfect.

Also, conservatives are sad because people don’t like them.  If I wasn’t busy trying to save the world, I still wouldn’t give a shit.

Arrested Development is coming back for season 5, and I’m so, so excited:

That’s it for now (hopefully these video links work, Youtube was acting strange for me), have a great one!



Alright, let’s see what we have going on today.

First up, need a pick-me up?  Watch this crazy video.  Sometimes I really miss soap operas.

Or just watch this:

Just remember, the separation of Church and State is only applicable if it’s what you want.  Or something like that.

I never thought of it this way, but second amendment extremists have met their match: insurance companies.

Whoever is running the social media accounts at JCPenny is awesome:

As a reminder, Orson Scott Card, the writer of Ender’s Game, is a hateful bigot.  Like, he has said that he thinks members of the LGBT community should be rounded up arrested and put in camps.  But now, he wants us to forget about that, so he can make money on his new movie.  Needless to say, the responses have been epic, and I won’t be seeing the movie.

And this is what happens when capitalism goes unchecked:

There is a cool documentary coming out about Walt Disney trying to secure the rights to Mary Poppins, and it looks amazing. Also, Tom Hanks looks exactly like Walt Disney himself.  Check it out here.

Wolverine: the puppet musical.  So that’s a thing.

And lastly, the trailer for The Fifth Estate, the movie about WikiLeaks.  It looks good, but I think all the good parts may be in the trailer:

That’s it for now, have a great one!



Alright, another update today, a lot of videos, but let’s see what all we have.

First up, make your own Twinkies (or go to Canada, you know, either one):

Sweet burn from JCPenny:

Mika’s new single (Stardust is better, but this is good):

She didn’t win, but the best campaign slogan ever:

To get into the Christmas spirit:

This is so true:

And finally, the movies of 2012:

That’s it for now, have a great one!



Quick update for everyone, lots of videos this time around too:

First up, 10 misconceptions:

Awesome new shirt from Pittsburgh tees.  Check it out.

This is pretty awesome, there are giant roots installed at historic sites in Mexico as a giant art project.  Pretty cool.

Awesome cover of Adele’s Set Fire to the Rain, and I think I may like this better than the original:

An insulting law (the same type was ruled unconstitutional by the courts in Florida) was taken back, after another lawmaker decided to make it more fair.  The law would require anyone applying for public assistance submit to a drug test, and the other lawmaker added a provision making lawmakers submit to the same test.  Florida struck it down, since it violates the idea of  unlawful search and seizure, but before that happened, through the testing, it was learned that only 2% of those applying for aid in Florida were drug users, compared to 10% of the general Florida population.

Star Wars Uncut was finally released!  People from around the world were asked to submit 15 second clips, and the whole movie was pieced together:

And finally, check out this awesome experiment used with Google image search.

I’ll be back soon with more, have a great one!



A couple more things for you to watch.

First up: OH GOOD GRAVY I AM NEVER GOING TO BRAZIL:

My friend Teri directed me towards this video, which I enjoyed (in an artsy way):

Moments from Everynone on Vimeo.

 

But I like this one better:
