I don't know if I'm the last one to the zefrank party, but my rhetorical friends talk about him a lot at parties and laugh, so I finally followed a link . . . and I also admired and laughed.

I didn't find the actual video I was looking for, but both of these seemed worth sharing:

It's never too late to join the zefrank party!

Be sure to see all his early stuff, like Dance Properly and Impress Your Date under Educational Videos. Also, under Stuff To Read, Bored still cracks me up. And, if you will, under Stuff To Read, check out Stats #2. I'm on the list, 4th from the bottom.  :banana:

When Punk discovered zefrank a year or 2 ago he went on a binge and watched all the archives in a few days. 
Cause you're so beautiful
Like a tree
Or a high-class prostitute
You're so beautiful
Mmm, you could be a part-time model
But you'd probably have to keep your normal job

The one the rhetorical friends were talking about (and doing impressions of) that made me give in and look 'em up was one of the first Ugly My Space contest ones -- the one where he sings a song about ugliness, mocks a bunch of My Space pages, mocks someone who wrote in to tell him he was wasting his time mocking people who don't have design training, and then gives a little clued-in rant about how new kinds of design are now available to and scrutinized by the unwashed masses, and yadda yadda.

I felt like he missed an important point or two (like that when the masses, vs experts, create new standards for esthetics, it's not necessarily better or worse, just different), but considering the density of his little rants, it's intensely :thumbsup:

Especially since I almost always hate those home-edited iMovies online-video things.  If I really like yours, you must be doing something really right.  The whole problem with design experts is that tend to become fetishists, divorced from general 'good taste' because they're bored with it and want to stand out.  The whole problem with mass art is that it tends to gravitate toward whatever is painfully easy and structureless (like unrhyming blank verse), and consequently there tends to be a lot of it produced with very little esthetic included.

It's great that 'everyone' (a lot more people than it used to be) can now explore editing movies at home and then distribute them on the internet, but that doesn't mean the resulting movies are great.  It's generally like everybody took their awful holiday slides, set the screen at a weird angle, and then changed slides at random intervals while playing bad music.

But, so far, zefrank is zebomb.  I rely on social networks of early penguins to sort through all the bad mass-art and find the good stuff so I don't have to . . . much as he says.

I found this curiosity linked in a frak thread today. I was agog, and entertained, but it was funnier when I thought My Barbarian were ingenuous.

I can't watch that here at work, but I am so hoping it's got some balalaikas in it.


No balaikas in that one.

Here's one:

Kickass!

Do they have electric balalaikas?

Btw Electric Balalaika should be a track on the album.

Leningrad Cowboys & Red Army Choir - SWEET HOME ALABAMA

And it has balalaikas!
