SNL: Countdown with Keith Olbermann

This sketch renews my faith in Ben Affleck. It's also a good tip for people who hate Fox News (with good reason) but somehow believe that CNN and MSNBC are above the petty non-informative punditry.

Side note: Hindus need to take back the word pundit. How does a word once reserved for the likes of Jawaharlal Nehru get applied to the O'Reilleys and Olbermanns of the world?

Additional side note: This is also a great sketch for anyone who knows what a pain in the ass New York co-op boards are.

Hilarious tutorial.

Pink Floyd: Empty Spaces

The full version of this song was cut from the album, The Wall, because of the space constraints of vinyl. The age of CDs, however, haven't brought the lost tracks from the film of the same name back to their rightful places on the album.

For those that still haven't seen this film, do. Basically, it's a series of music videos strung together to tell a story. These videos are more compelling than the Cristal commercials that pass for videos on MTV.

This video, which not to subtly combines rock angst with Georgia O'Keefe is one of the few animated sequences in the film.

Paul Potts Singing Opera

I don't usually get sentimental on sneTV, but hey, I'm a sucker for underdogs (and opera, apparently).

Props to Jaishree Stulpinas for submitting this one.

Bud Commercial: Swear Jar

If I had one of these at my old office, I'd have a big ass beer belly by now.

Shout out to Rebeka Choudhury for finding this.

Natas Kaupas: Wheels of Fire (1989)

It's amazing how sick Natas' wall riding and board sliding was twenty years ago. Look how he tricks off the hydrant at the end. To this day, no one can pull that off quite as smoothly.

I'm sorry, but the surf action in this animated film looks more legit than most live-action surf movies.

Windward Shorts: Cubicle War

Barats and Bereta's hilarious workplace pranks. The tie bit is well done.

Todd Falcon

Todd combines Rodney Mullen's classic freestyle footwork with vert and street skating. Very innovative, whether or not you're a fan of skate tricks.

For a change the telemarketer falls victim to harassment.

Surfing the Amazon

The pororoca is a tidal phenomenon that occurs at the mouth of the Amazon. Every year around February or March, the high tide coming in from the Atlantic Ocean forms a wave that travels up the Amazon, against the river current.

It's effectively the longest ridable wave in the world with some rides lasting over 30 minutes. The Amazon poses hazards for surfers, namely crocodiles, river sharks, and (even scarier) candirĂºs, which are parasitic fish that swim up the penis.

Jamiroquai: Virtual Insanity

Though the floor looks like it's moving, it's the walls that move. The camera is fastened to the moving walls adding to the effect.

A good video whether or not you're into dogs (or scantilly clad women).

Goldfrapp: Ooh La La

Goldfrapp's stylish tribute to glam rock.

Men in Coats

Funny. No words. Only magic.

Jeopardy: Ken Gets Ghetto

Though it wasn't the answer they were going for, I think they should have given it to him.

Brent Meyer: Inverted Nose and Tail Slide

Actually, I made the name up. I'm not sure this trick even has a name yet.
