Link of the Month:
True American Dog
A site about Photoshopping animals into bizarre & surreal scenarios with a strangely patriotic theme? One of the most fun and strange image blogs to join the ranks of Selleck Waterfall Sandwich and THIS IS FUN TO MAKE A BLOG ON THE COMPUTER WEBSITE.
Album of the Month:
19 Action News: Zombie Christmas
A very well-made 4-song EP that re-imagines the holidays in a post-zombie-apocalypse world. After a spoken-word intro about the beginnings of the zombie infestation (caused by Black Friday shoppers), we go into an eerie and fascinating rendition of “I Heard the Bells” with air-raid sirens in the distance instead of bells. The album gives me a vibe like I’m hunkered down in my hideout, desperately scanning the airwaves for any transmission, when suddenly I manage to tune into these songs. Where are they coming from? Are there more survivors out there… somewhere?
DVD of the Month:
Community: The Complete First Season
One of the best sitcoms in years. Not only is it a show about a disparate group of people coming together as a family, but it is also simultaneously a show that goes out of its way to skewer that trope, and any other trope it can get its hands on. It’s my favorite kind of parody; it’s all played completely straight with impeccable comic timing from a fantastic ensemble cast that includes Joel McHale, Donald Glover, and Chevy Chase. Wait until you get to the paintball episode. Man-o-man.
