This was all over the Google Pluses yesterday (OK, is there a good way to pluralize that? Google+’s?), but I don’t post on Thursdays. I’m a Friday kind of gal. Co-written, co-directed and co-acted by Dan De Lorenzo and Ben Stumpf, this trailer combines two things we love to make fun of: Facebook, and the work of Mel Gibson.

Also, today is my last post as a guest editor! Thanks to the team at Here’s Some Awesome for letting me contribute, and humble apologies for always getting my posts in so damn late in the day. See you on the Internets!

Everyone is excited over the fancy new Planet of the Apes prequel coming soon, but in the meantime enjoy this techno remix featuring clips from the original movie! This is largely how I imagine our future to look like if rave culture had maintained its hold on the hearts and minds of our youth.

Let’s face it: Batman is great, but he wouldn’t be the badass Caped Crusader we all know and love without the benefit of his hot ride. The Batmobile has gone through a lot of incarnations (check out the Wikipedia article for the full history, a surprisingly fun read), but the one that has always stood out in my mind is the version from Batman and Batman Returns, which appears to be the inspiration for the actual working Batmobile you see above (Batman geeks, please correct me if I’m wrong here).

According to the YouTube page of creator Casey Putsch (highlights my own):

It is powered by a military spec Boeing turboshaft engine driving the rear wheels through a semi automatic gearbox. It features a custom tube frame/monocoque chassis with fully independant suspension, disc brakes, and a sequential shifter. It runs on kerosene, diesel, or Jet fuel and has a power to weight ratio comparable to a Dodge Viper.

Sorry Tesla, I’ve just found my new dream car. It might not be as eco-friendly, but I’ll be a hit with all the kids at Comic-Con.

The Gregory Brothers are back with another hit, and this one is pretty near and dear to my heart (cats…duh). The funny thing about this video is that you watch it and think, “Man, this chick is crazy! She can’t possibly be this crazy.” Then, you go back and watch the original video, and realize how very, very wrong you were.

She’s that crazy, and then some.

And then, you’d think “She is so crazy, this can’t possibly be real, right?”

Exactly. Buy her t-shirts here!
