Terence McKenna’s ‘Stoned Ape Theory’ animated


Painting by Alex Grey

Probably the single most perplexing element in the fossil record is the doubling of the brain-size of Homo Sapiens over the period of just two million years (a very, very short period of time in evolutionary terms). Something caused it, but what?

In this brilliant animation, comedian Duncan Trussell gets to the bottom of it. This is the greatest thing ever, an instant classic:

This is a part of Thunderbrain, the pilot I made for Comedy Central.  It is an animation of Terrance Mckenna’s “Stoned Ape Theory”  which is the theory that protohominids munched on mushrooms and this caused the mysterious rapid expansion of the neocortex that eventually differentiated us from the other monkeys.

Animation by Will Carsola. Written by: Duncan Trussell, Will Carsola, and Tom Giannis

I hope Comedy Central pick this pilot up! And if they don’t Adult Swim should snatch it up immediately. This is what I want to watch on television.

I was planning to write a blog post about how appropriately 40% of Americans who receive Medicare deny that they get a government check, but Bill Maher really nailed it in this bit from his Real Time HBO program so I don’t have to. 

What percentage of that ill-informed 40% do you think are Tea partiers? Just asking…

Send this one to all your idiot teabagger relatives just to annoy them.

British comic Stevie Riks cracks me up. He’s funny as hell and smart as a pistol when it comes to paying homage and satirizing his rock and roll heroes. Check out his website. You’ll find some real comic gems there.

In this video, Riks creates an imagined collaboration between David Bowie and Elvis Presley on “Golden Years.”

Riks does spot-on impressions and his Bowie is almost perfect. “Golden Years” would have been a great choice for Elvis to cover, no shit.

Funky ass summer song of the year: ‘Youtube Girl’


Photo: Clayton Cubitt.
 
The Bounce is still very much alive and Mr. Ghetto and Young Sizzle ain’t gonna let you forget it. “Youtube Girl” is my favorite summer song of the year so far. I love me some Bounce and just about anything from New Orleans, from the food to the music to the booty, makes me extremely randy.

The girls are Bouncin’ everywhere, even at the Walmart! The Bounce will not be denied. And it’s about time all those bouncin’ bootys on Youtube got a little respect and recognition.

Nutthin’ says summer like a steaming pile of gravity-defying gluteus maximus.

John Lennon interview 1973

Mind Games


 
One of the many things I love about John Lennon is that despite having more money than God and being one of the most influential human beings of the 20th century he seemed to have a very clear perspective on what was going on in the tumultuous reality he inhabited and a surprising sense of humility. There’s something very Zen about Lennon. Yes, he was capable of being an asshole at times, who isn’t, but mostly he comes off as a sweet sweet man.

In this interview conducted in 1973 prior to the release of Mind Games, John discusses his days with The Beatles and a possible reunion.
 

 
Thanks Mick Stadium.

Bernie Sanders: Nope!


 
From Sen. Bernie Sanders’ website:

“The Republicans have been absolutely determined to make certain that the rich and large corporations not contribute one penny for deficit reduction, and that all of the sacrifice comes from the middle class and working families in terms of cuts in Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, LIHEAP, community health centers, education, Head Start, nutrition, MILC, affordable housing and many other vitally important programs.

“I cannot support legislation like the Reid proposal which balances the budget on the backs of struggling Americans while not requiring one penny of sacrifice from the wealthiest people in our country.  That is not only grotesquely immoral, it is bad economic policy.”

Say it loud, Bernie! You’re the only one speaking any sense!
