I don’t know. – Jonathan Aledda, when asked why he tried to murder a man

Sometimes I stumble across good videos while viewing others people have linked; such was the case here, and since it’s been a while since I featured a good horror short, enjoy!  The links above it were provided by Jesse WalkerNun YaTim Cushing, and Jason Kuznicki, in that order.

Every inmate can obviously state that he is uncomfortable in jail.
–  Dean Flippo

This week’s video is a very, very strange short absurdist horror operetta; I have no other description for it, but it was contributed by Jesse Walker (who also provided “Pokemon Gothic”).  The links above it are from Tim Cushing (“boo”, “expected” and “together”), Wendy Lyon (“Sweden”), Walter Olson (“headline”), Jillian Keenan (“cost”), and Mistress Matisse (“Cassandra”).

I think when people give money to the city to help the homeless they fully anticipate that’s what those funds will be used for.  –  Cathy Alderman

Are you surprised to see the Links column appearing on a Friday?  You should be, because it’s only happened twice before, both over three years ago.  But it was either that or post the Guest column on a Friday (which I didn’t want to do) or the news columns only two days apart (which I also didn’t want to do), so here it is.  Besides, I don’t want y’all to get too complacent.  The video is of a piece of music that really wowed me when it came up on my Pink Panther Pandora station one night while I was not anything like sober, but I don’t think you need to be in that state to appreciate it.  The links above it are from Cathy Reisenwitz (“children”),  Tim Cushing (“government” and “protect”), Amy Alkon (“ground”), and Lucy Steigerwald (“together”).

We’re obligated to provide the same level of service, the same billing the same everything, for every patient we encounter.  –  Mike McLaughlin

We know that the US government can produce powerful, effective propaganda; we’ve certainly seen it in the “sex trafficking” hysteria.  But a lot more of it is ludicrously bad; take a look at this video contributed by Tim Cushing, the intention of which seems to be convincing Americans to maintain psychotic levels of paranoia when traveling abroad.  Tim also provided “more” and “proof”, and the other links above the video are from Franklin Harris (“RIP”), Cathy Reisenwitz (“robot”), Nun Ya (“laws”), Jillian Keenan (“snacks”), and Scott Greenfield (“TSA”).

Too bad I can’t eat too many without lowering blood pressure too much.

I’m very fond of short videos that put an unusual “spin” on a familiar subject; this week’s example was contributed by Tim Cushing.  The links above it were provided by Radley Balko (“paradise”), Amy Alkon (“children”), Nun Ya (“laws”), and Popehat (“policies”).

I am willing to wear a wire and set Jesus up.  –  Tito Watts

When animation first became popular in the 1930s, it was not viewed as entertainment for children, but rather for adults.  Walter Olson contributed this 1935 short by German animator Lotte Reiniger; it’s basically a music video for “Papageno” from Mozart’s The Magic Flute, and I think you’ll be pretty impressed.  The links above it were provided by Brooke MagnantiTim CushingScott GreenfieldTushy GaloreDave KruegerPopehat, and Radley Balko, in that order.

(She was) Just the sweetest lady.

A lot of my readers enjoy flattering me about the ease with which I take down idiots who try to challenge me on the internet, and needless to say I enjoy it, too, especially when the jokes are as funny as this video shared by Ablative Meatshield.  The links above the video were provided by Nun Ya (“happens”), Dave Meyer Lindenberg (“state”), Tim Cushing (“seizure” and “innocence”), Radley Balko  (“sociopathic”), and Charles Hill (“backward”).
