YouTube user Mylo the Cat aka isthishowyougoviral aka Adam Schleichkorn brings us the Muppets-rap mashup we didn’t know we’ve been waiting for—a lengthy montage of Cookie Monster acting as MC over Busta Rhymes’ first single “Woo Hah! Got You All In Check,” which went to #1 on the U.S. rap charts more than 20 years ago, in 1996.

The video came out yesterday. Of the clip, Schleichkorn says. “I just wanted to make something to lighten the mood, in between the inevitable countless amounts of terrible news stories that will come out this week.”

What does he know that we don’t? Oh right, nothing at all. Bad news. That’s one thing you can bank on in 2017.

Earlier this year Schleichkorn came out with an amusing video in which Big Bird does the Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage.” We liked that one too.

Pig Triptych - Part 2 by Amandine Urruty
Pig Triptych - Part 2 by Amandine Urruty
 
According to French artist, Amandine Urruty, she loves drawing hair, dogs, people, painting on big walls and eating sausage. As a big fan of all of those things as well, it was pretty easy for me to fall instantly in love with Urruty’s most recent, curious black and white drawings..
 
The Book -  Amandine Urruty
The Book
 
Done using pencil and graphite, Urruty’s work reminds me a bit of another unique artist, Mark Ryden when it comes to her incorporation of historical or pop-culture characters and hunks of meat (which Ryden is especially fond of) into her somewhat unsettling creations. There’s also a sense of age to Urruty’s drawings that is reminiscent of the eerie beauty of black and white photography from the early 1900s.

In the dreamlike images featured in this post, you will a myriad of characters from your childhood (depending on your age of course), mingling amidst Urruty’s delightfully freaky scenes. Such as Slimer of Ghostbusters fame (as well as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man), Cookie Monster, fictional TV cat enthusiast Alf, a Garbage Pail Kid, a bunch of Muppets, and a tiny version of Chewbacca in a dress holding Urruty’s favorite snack, a sausage.

Her latest book, Dommage Fromage (which is amusingly translated to English as “Damaged Cheese”) which features the works highlighted in this post, can be purchased here. Tons of images of Urruty’s mischievous works (which have a bit of a timely Halloween theme running through them) follow.

Sesame Street ‘original 69 monster’ T-shirt fail

This T-shirt featuring Cookie Monster is commemorating the birth of Sesame Street in 1969.

But something is a little bit off about this.

This had to have been intentional, right? Right?

I know none of our readers need this fail explained. Quite simply, your humble Dangerous Minds correspondent is a giggling 12-year-old boy.

The shirt is available as part of a package of Sesame Street commemorative shirts being sold through Amazon.

Cookie Monster channels Isaac Hayes for a ‘Theme from Shaft’ parody, can you dig it?

In 1977 disco was HUGE and everyone and his monkey was putting out a disco record—Ethel Merman, for instance. The Children’s Television Workshop wasn’t above a trend like that. They put this out as a single in 1977, but Sesame Street Fever wouldn’t come out until a year later.

This song is a straight parody of Isaac Hayes’ “Theme From Shaft,” but taking no (legal) chances, they steered clear of that type of title in favor of “Cookie Disco.”

Here are some of the lyrics:
 

He’s shaggy, he’s blue
And he knows how to chew—COOKIE!

Can you dig it?

You think you can munch,
Brother, you’re out to lunch
Compared with—COOKIE!

Did someone say “Lunch”?

 
Etc. Hey, nobody ever said the guy was subtle, but I love him anyway. Dig his Dr. John the Night Tripper/Patti Labelle headdress and outfit, too. Funky!

Mazzy Star’s ‘Fade Into You’ sung by Cookie Monster

Catman Cohen is an obscure but tenacious vocalist with an improbable, gravelly bass voice and a catalog of four self released CDs that feature absurdly portentious song titles like “If I Could Divide the Smell of Flowers,” “How I Want to Die,” “Metaphorical Dreams of a Broken Soul”... you get the picture. He’s very much a destitute man’s Leonard Cohen attempting to sing like Albert Kuvezhin, and on his 2009 opus How I Want to Dream: The Catman Chronicles 3 he covered Mazzy Star’s unforgettable 1993 single “Fade Into You.” Terribly. He also made a terrible video for it. Watch it here if you like, but I much prefer the version below, mashed-up by an internet smartass with footage of Sesame Street‘s Cookie Monster.
 

 
Many thanks to Valerie Johnson for this find.

Hm. Communism? Copulation? California? Canapes? Conservatives? Cobblers?

With a little help from Fidel Villeneuve of the band Applicants.
