Slip on this Banana

We pay homage to some hilarious Bardians who formed their own video sketch comedy group, Olde English, that will rock your socks right out from your now-made-by-Nike Chuck Taylors. This is one of their earliest videos (one of my personal favorites) that you’ll appreciate if you’ve ever waken up and not been able to figure out if you had feet, much less where they might be if you had them. Presenting: Hello? Fuck!

They also made a stellar rap video about the NYC Mayor’s Office of Film’s proposed regulations, which have since been reconsidered due to the angry mob of New York artists armed with heavy equipment and tortured souls (in that beautiful way).

The Morgan Spurlock of Starbucks

In response to Lemon Life‘s post on Mark Malkoff, a man who made an intriguing documentary about his epic quest to visit all 171 Starbucks stores in a day and consume part of something from every one of them. (Really? Really really? Yeah, I know.) Watch it on YouTube. (Note: This link will be posted straight to this page soon, for the moment… I think I broke Google.)

My comment to the post is as follows:

Mark Malkoff is definitely the Morgan Spurlock of Starbucks.

This is quite a feat just mathematically speaking; not only in terms of his travel time, but also in terms of his gargantuan caffeine intake. If there are 80-100mg of caffeine in the average espresso shot and around 600mg of caffeine in your system puts you at risk for heart failure, assuming the minimum amount after 7.5 shots of espresso he’d be considered at risk.

Also, considering that he’d had “8 espresso shots in the past 3 hours” at hour 7… that man must have the bladder and liver control of a G-d. I’m beyond amazed. Perhaps, this is the only time when the word “flabbergasted” can be used appropriately.

The Last Vestiges of Color

With all of NYC’s boroughs undergoing gentrification as fast as the Mayor’s Office of Film can make bad decisions, I sought to find some of the old East Village’s flair (or flamboyance, if you prefer). Luckily, the astringent proposed laws are being reconsidered, or this post might have been coming from San Fransisco instead. Follow the most recent updates here.

Note the flyer with Hebrew on it in the second photo. Apparently, more than just my nose draws me to my brethren.
