Solar Freakin’ Roadways!

Solar Panel RoadwaysAhh internets, how I have missed you. So much flippin’ AMAZING content, so many crazy beautiful minds all combining and merging, creating, sharing, inspiring, changing the world.

If you haven’t seen the video for Solar Freakin’ Roadways, you need to watch it right now. Not only did it get a chuckle out of your Tiger pal, but the idea behind it is nothing short of sheer brilliance.

The premise is simple – replace all the roads in the world with solar panels. Doesn’t sound very sexy or amazing, but trust me, the video you’re about to watch WILL blow your mind and could potentially change the world.


Black Keys Kick Out A Friday Jam

20140321-blackkeys-x600-1395439282It ain’t over till it’s over. So fucked up how the world works – you take work home, some fucking brain-meltingly gigantic piece of hell you have to work through and guaranteed, fucking guaranteed, your kid cries all night.

I walked around with my daughter in my arms for an entire fucking hour 12.30am to 1.30am. My shoulder is fucked. You think lifting weights fucks you up? Try just holding an 8kg weight for an hour and we’ll talk.

Anyway, let’s just play this Black Keys track off the new album and try to put it all behind us for a day or two. The Black Keys understand. They got your back home-boi.


“Turn Blue” Video Is All Kinds Of Creepy

Turn BlueI could try to explain to you crazy kids about how snowed under I’ve been lately, but I think that much is evident from how few and far between the posts on this site are.

The two pillars that keep me balanced are blogging and training. As long as I’m blogging every day from Mon – Fri and training three times a week or more, I feel like I’m moving forward.

As I write this, I haven’t seen the inside of a gym for nearly a month and I’ve blogged maybe twice in the last three weeks. All I have been doing is working and I wish I could say it’s letting up, but it isn’t.


How Wolves Change Rivers

wild-wolf-super-hd-2-0-s-307x512Variety is the spice of life boys and girls and that’s why here on Them’s Fightin’ Words we like to mix all kinds of weird stuffs together with absolutely no rhyme or reason other than the fact that I feel like it.

This next video is pretty damn amazing though. I know I don’t normally post wildlife videos but this one really stood out above the rest because it documents how wolves change rivers.

That’s right, wolves have hidden, river-changing SUPERPOWERS that nobody knows about except you, me, and the interwebs. If you can handle the trying-very-hard-to-be-Richard-Attenborough narration and have even the vaguest interest in wildlife, this video will blow your mind.


Miley Cyrus’ Best And Worst Covers

MileyWith ol’ Miley paying so much attention to developing her “aesthetic” it’s pretty easy to forget the fact that behind all the sticky-outy tongue action and attention-gabbing twerking, the girl can sing.

Well, sometimes… I stumbled on a video of her covering Outkast’s “Hey Ya” and decided to dig a little deeper for more covers she’s done as I remember seeing something about her covering Arctic Monkeys recently.

The result was equal parts mesmerising and horrifying. The mesmerising part is how many different tones she can sing in. The horrifying part is how she chooses to use them and the fact that she once tried to cover Nirvana.


Tuesday LOLZ…? Featuring News Bombs And Meshuggah Faces

Meshuggah faceThis is a bit unorthodox I know, but I had to share these two videos with you guys, one of which was sent to me by my main man DJ Luke and the other from a regular contributor to this site, Civilian.

I’ve said it before, but news bloopers / autotuned news reports / news bombs all definitely rate right up there for me in terms of online content that cracks me up every time.

Then there’s the vid Civilian sent, which probably makes more sense if you’ve seen Wolf Of Wallstreet but is still pretty damn hilarious even if you haven’t. Gotta love death metal, the soundtrack of sexually frustrated people the world over.


Mental Note: Do NOT Confuse Samuel L Jackson With Laurence Fishburne. Ever.

Fishburne JacksonThis is an important lesson in doing your fucking research boys and girls, and it’s an important one to remember if you hang out in the kind of circles I do where running into A-list celebs is a daily occurrence.

Whatever happens, DO NOT CONFUSE SAMUEL L WITH LAURENCE FISHBURNE. And if you do, you’d better make damn sure it isn’t on live TV because holy shit, my man Samuel will tear you a new one.

And rightly so. I mean this is Samuel L we are talking about here, a guy who has become notorious for playing slick-talking badass black characters for over 20 fucking years.


A Video That Can Actually Top The Last One I Posted On The “What-The-Fuck-o-meter”

wackIf you guys caught the last music video I posted for Jamie Lenman and were actually able to sit through the thrash metal part at the beginning, then you have a better than average chance of handling this next one.

Fair warning though, it comes from Japan – home of the world’s weirdest shit since the term “weird shit” was first invented (probably by the Japanese).

Bizarrely these guys actually sound a bit like System Of A Down if everyone in the band decided to go on a 10 day meth binge interspersed with liquid LSD down-down competitions. The internet is indeed a wonderful place.


Bands Taking The Piss

Travis failBig up to NME for originally posting these videos of bands giving the finger to the man by outright refusing to mime their songs when asshole TV producers insist on it.

NME posted this because the Chili Peppers “played” at last Sunday’s Superbowl with their instruments very clearly not plugged in, which nearly caused as much of a ruckus as them collaborating with Bruno Mars.

They faked it like a buncha pros, but obviously wanted it to be known that something was rotten in the state of Denmark by not plugging in. Keidis’ voice was apparently the only real part of the performance.


The Tiger Watches “How To Destroy The Universe” Video. Freaks Out.

Universe endingThe universe is a pretty gigantic (or so I’m told) so the thought of the entire thing suddenly ceasing to exist is a total mind fuck. Now you see us, now you don’t. We hope you enjoyed your stay.

The video you are about to watch covers a whole bunch of different theories about how the universe is going to end, all of which are based on the fact that the universe is expanding exponentially.

It’s pretty intense, a lot of quantum theory and other stuff that I don’t even pretend to know anything about. The way this video explains everything is pretty easy to understand though. Easy to understand and mildly terrifying…
