None of your fucking business!  –  Axis of Awesome

Since I’m in Los Angeles right now, I’m sure you aren’t surprised this link column is a bit short.  It does, however, feature a very cute, funny video from the comedy band Axis of Awesome (whom I’ve featured twice before) in which they announce that one of their members is trans.  The video was provided by Mistress Matisse, and the links above it by Radley BalkoNun YaTim Cushing and Nun Ya again (in that order).

Rap Rap Rap Rap Rap Rap Rap Rap Rap Rap Rap Rap Rap Rap Rap Rap Rap Rap Rap Rap – Unknown

I don’t often feature cute animal videos, but every once in a while there’s one that makes me laugh so hard I feel I have very little choice; here’s one from Clarkhat  featuring a dog who clearly revels in his outlaw status.  The links above it are from Popehat (“Bradbury” and “laws”), Franklin Harris (“RIP”), Mirriam Seddiq  (“approach”), and Nun Ya (“drugs”).

She’s not out, she’s playing games.  –  Michael Torregrossa

There’s no particular occasion for today’s video, but what occasion does there have to be for one of my favorite actors reading one of my favorite poems?  Amy Alkon  provided it, and the links above it are from Mirriam Seddiq (“idiocracy”), Dave Krueger (“faking”), Mike Siegel (“Canada”), Jason Kuznicki (“do”), Furrygirl  (“NHI”), Lucy Steigerwald (“penalty”), and Radley Balko (“hostage”).

In reports that were written by the deputies who took their gun belts off, took their clothes off and went in the water – those deputies aren’t lying. – Bob Gualtieri, before seeing video showing the deputies were indeed lying

As I said in a recent column, it really is difficult for young people today to comprehend how much more prudish the world has become in the past thirty-odd years.  Case in point: this birth control video, produced by Walt Disney, starring Donald Duck and voiced by my man Paul Frees (and provided by Whores of Yore).  The links above it were supplied by GracePopehatRadley BalkoSkyeEmma Evans, and Grace again, in that order.

U better live now/Before the grim reaper come knocking on your door.  –  Prince, “Let’s Go Crazy”

The big news this week, of course, was the sudden and unexpected death of the iconic rock star Prince; as of this writing the cause of that death is still unknown, but I’m not going to let the occasion pass without a tribute.  Unfortunately, there aren’t many Prince videos on YouTube because a few years ago he had them all removed, and policed it pretty closely thereafter.  Since I really hate embedding a video and later finding it gone, here’s one I hope will stick: a live performance of “Purple Rain” on The Arsenio Hall Show in 1991.  Of course, I already featured the best Prince performance on YouTube in Links #195 two years ago, and you really ought to watch that one, too.  The links above the video are from Matt Welch  (“garden”), Radley Balko (“compulsory” and “monkeys”), Nun Ya (“cops”), and  Skye (“together”).

I need to take this away.  –  airport “security” thug

So as Walter Olson informs us, the brilliant musical comedian Tom Lehrer turned 88 last week; I’ve decided to celebrate the occasion by featuring a video of one of his less-often-heard songs, in a recording made long after his late ’50s-early ’60s heyday.  You would probably expect me to choose “The Masochism Tango”, but I’m sure many of you already know that one and besides, it’s in the Copenhagen concert I featured 98 weeks ago in Links #204.  This one is about the usual consequences of sexual promiscuity when it’s left to amateurs.  The links above it are from Tim Cushing (“Lovecraft”), Dan Savage (“security”), Rick Horowitz  (“protect”), and Wendy Lyon (“ride”).

Brand New, I will take $800 for it.  –  Erek Balentine

A few days ago, Mike Siegel tweeted that whenever some random idiot challenges me on Twitter, “I feel like I’m in a Western saloon and should close up my piano.”  I replied, “I shoot like Matt Dillon, but I dress like Miss Kitty.”  And then Tim Cushing suggested the song below for my soundtrack.  See how much fun my Twitter feed is?  So if you aren’t following it, why don’t you?  Tim also provided “serve” and “hostage” in the links; the others were contributed by Nun Ya  (“headline”, “Cassandra” and “suicide”), Dave Krueger (“safety”), Radley Balko  (“demand”), Scott Greenfield (“feed”), Wendy Lyon (“laws”), Lucy Steigerwald  (“broke” and “together”), and Carol Fenton (“reason”).
