Interesting YouTube Channel: Forgotten Weapons

August 15, 2016 Leave a comment

It is no secret that the quality of content made by amateurs and semi-professionals on YouTube now routinely exceeds the crap produced by the “professionals” on network TV and even many cable channels. As many of you know, I am interested in technology of all sorts- especially the history of innovation in those areas (both successful and failed ideas) that led to where we are now.

I first came across a YouTube channel on rare firearms, especially prototypes, 2-3 years ago. At that time it was were mostly 10-15 minute clips about the history and mechanisms of somewhat uncommon guns. It has become even better since them and a lot of content on that channel, uploaded over previous year, is very good.

“Family Guy” Predicted the Truck Attack in Nice, France

July 16, 2016 15 comments

Here is a short YouTube clip from an older episode of the cartoon show ‘Family Guy’ depicting a scenario rather similar to the July 14 Truck Attack in Nice, France. I will write my thoughts about that incident and the unsuccessful alleged “coup” in Turkey in the near future.

A Couple of Especially Accurate YouTube Parodies about Hillary Clinton

April 2, 2016 1 comment

Recently, I came across a number of scarily accurate parodies about Hillary Clinton on YouTube. It is worth noting that the channels producing these parodies have a strong progressive ideological bent- suggesting that a large number of younger generation in the USA are incapable of seeing Hillary as anything other than a calculating and greedy robot.

Here are two examples..

Clip 1: Hillary Clinton’s Lena Dunham Strategy (Above Average)

Clip 2: What’s Inside Hillary Clinton’s Pockets (CollegeHumor)

Satiristic YouTube Clip: A Jeb in Winter

February 9, 2016 Leave a comment

The embedded YouTube clip contains a very clever and well done lampooning of the now obviously doomed presidential campaign of Jeb Bush. I saw it on the first episode of Samantha Bee’s new late-night show. While many other people have previously commented on Jeb’s lack of personality, this particular clip mocks it in a way that almost makes you feel sorry for that guy.

Two Funny and Relevant Clips from ‘Bulworth’ (1998)

September 24, 2015 1 comment

Here are two funny and still totally relevant clips from a political comedy made in 1998- almost 17 years ago. The movie in question, Bulworth, is about the strange turns of events that occurs after the main character, a depressed and disillusioned senator, takes out a hit contract on himself. Subsequently, the guy gets drunk and tells voters what he really thinks and in doing so experiences a huge surge in his dismal popularity ratings. Here is a link to the imdb information page for that movie and here is another link to even more information about that movie on Rotten Tomatoes.

Here is the first clip..

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance- Senator Armstrong (Final Boss)

September 14, 2015 1 comment

Here is an interesting cut of the fight with the final boss in Metal Gear Rising- Revengeance (2013). Does the speech by “Senator Armstrong” remind you of somebody who has been all over the news in the last two months? The most telling part of his speech occurs between 6:50- 7:00 in this clip, but do watch the rest of the clip because it has some amazing (and very relevant) material.
