Archive for the ‘Links’ Category

I’ve always been dedicated to the idea of this as the time of year for spooky fun.  So every year I collect all the spooky, creepy or scary links and other content from the previous year into one place just before Halloween.  If you’ve come to my blog in the past year, or don’t remember previous editions, they are “Trick or Treat”, “More Trick or Treat“, “Tricks and Treats“, “This Trick’s a Treat”, “Tricky Treats“, and “A Trickle of Treats” (because I also love wordplay).  Horror, death or Halloween-themed columns of the past year include “Eros and Thanatos“, “Not Your Costume?“, “Its Own Reward“, “Frozen Smoke“, “The Science of Sin“, and the short story “Wheels“; there are creepy or spooky-fun videos in Links #433, #435, #445, and #447; and here’s a collection of spooky or Halloweeny links:

If I had never dialed the police…she’d still be alive.  –  James Smith

This video (contributed by Furrygirl) was all the rage a couple of weeks ago; the woman was apparently a former member of the Lyndon Larouche cult, and I think she’s hilarious (and seasonal).  The links above it were provided by Phoenix Calida, Tim Cushing, Dave Krueger, Radley Balko, Walter Olson, and Jillian Keenan, in that order.

Alexandru Tanase…confessed to cleaning the teeth of Sandi Mullins.

Though I could’ve featured any number of videos for this week’s celebrity deaths, this one seemed the most appropriate.  The links above it were provided by Popehat (x2), Tim Cushing, Franklin Harris & Scott Greenfield, Radley Balko, and Amy Alkon, in that order.

The camel did nothing wrong.  –  Louis Hamilton Jr.

This particular rubber-chicken-playing-Asian-dude-with-deadpan-stare is a lot more serious than the one who performed Toto’s “Africa”; the video was discovered by Walter Olson, and the links above it were provided by Franklin Harris (x2), a reader named George, Radley Balko, Election Babe, and Scott Greenfield, in that order.

The only way you gonna stop him is kill him.  –  “Lawman” Brindell Wilkins

As regular readers know, cute kid videos are not really my thing.  But this perfect example of little boy behavior, provided by Mike Siegel, was so hilarious I had to make an exception.  The links above it were supplied by Tim Cushing, Mike Chase, Jesse Walker, Franklin Harris, Furrygirl, and Phoenix Calida, in that order.

The time has come to reject the canard of marijuana emanating from nearly every vehicle subject to a traffic stop.  –  Judge April Newbauer

Just a few hours after my last Links column posted, we learned of the death of Ric Ocasek (formerly of The Cars); this was my favorite of their videos, and one of my favorites of their songs.  The links above it were provided by Tim Cushing, Jillian Keenan, Scott Greenfield, Dave Krueger, Popehat, and Tim Cushing again, in that order.

Whenever I go out to Sunset, we try to spend at least one evening watching a movie stoned.  And we’ve found the best movies to watch stoned are those with a lot of music and simple plots.  Well, when I went out a couple of weeks ago this was our flick; it’s one of Grace’s favorites and if you have a good ear for musical style you may recognize the composer of the song in this trailer (who happens to be my favorite songwriter).  The links above it were provided by Clarissa, Kevin Wilson, Walter Olson, Jesse Walker, Popehat, and Radley Balko, in that order.
