Girls! Girls! Girls!

Wife Swap featured Alicia Guastaferro as a spoiled 15-year-old beauty pageant model.

Fifteen-year-old Victoria's life's goal is to "drop out of school to be on Girls Gone Wild, and to have my baby", as she explained on Maury.

Li'l J is so gangsta she has a MySpace page.

Thank God for little girls, because they can explain Star Wars.

2girls1cup

No, not the disgusting video itself, but two loving tributes: 2girls1McRib which uses a sandwich to blur out the disgusting parts (somewhat), and John Mayer's 2guys1cup (yes, that John Mayer). (hat-tips: amandalynferri and Justin)

Shoes

This is what happens when you take suggestions from drunk people in New York: instead of finding the original video, you wind up with the jailbait version.

Johann Pachelbel's Canon in D

… and why Rob Paravonian hates it. This is hilarious. Or if you know anything about modal music, it's blindingly obvious. As Rob puts it:

You know I'm getting really bored /
'cause all songs have the same damn chords. /
Punk music is a joke. /
It's really just baroque

More Cowbell

Well, woodblock, really, but who's counting when Gene Frenkle plays with Queens of the Stone Age?

Two Chinese Students

... lip-synch to the Backstreet Boys. They've done more videos too.

My favorite part is the oblivious guy in the background playing Counterstrike.

Civ4

Play too much Civ4? Seek help. You're not alone! Listen to our fearless leader pontificate on ancient civilizations with mucho espalda.

(He has more to say on other topics as well.)

NASSA and the Blackstronauts

Watch The Old Negro Space Program, a film not by Ken Burns.

(Caution: some profanity about half-way into the video)

Spaghetti

French scientists Basile Audoly and S├ębastien Neukirch explain why, when you try to snap it, spaghetti breaks into multiple fragments. They have movies shot with high-speed cameras, and everything. Take that, Feynman!

Big Ad

An unabashedly big ad for beer. Carlton Draught, to be specific.

Their bottles have pictures of horses on them, which confirms my suspicions about beer (their explanation notwithstanding)

(20051002 Update: There's another ad, about their brewing process.)

Performance Art

Really cool art work with sand and an overhead projector (9 minute video).
