Idiot’s Guide To Smart People: Music

CaptureOk, everything about this is correct. This quote, less than 20 seconds into the video, really captures how bad it’s gotten in some circles these days.

It takes a smart person to love something in a way that takes all the fun out of it.”

There’s about 2:45 of good stuff here, so put it into your face, and trust me, don’t google Louisiana Swamp Pop. It sounds like flies & relaxed sadness.

God Works In Mysterious Ways (NSFW If Your Boss Knows ASL).

Meanwhile, the Jehovah’s Witnesses not only shun masturbation, they want to make sure you know they shun it. Even if you can’t hear. So they created a series of videos where Witnesses signed about how terrible masturbation is. And then someone found them and dubbed 50 Cent over it. This is hilarious, horribly dirty and if you know sign language, please light up the comments telling us what the hell they’re saying.

Benny Hill Makes Everything Better. Even Raves.

If you’ve not seen this yet, it’s 45 seconds of amazing mashup saxamaphone for your Friday afternoon. Benny Hill’s theme has truly become a cultural staple, as it replaces the rather heinous tech-whatever that’s playing in the original video and gives the bro-trio (Pokemon!) a fun rhythm to bop to. Also that dude in the black tank totally works out. (via Laughing Squid)

iHeartRaves (Yes, That’s Actually A Thing) Teaches Modern Dance Moves.

So I assumed this would be wacky and bad, but it ended up being wacky and amusing. It starts out with your standard/predictable dance moves but then escalates into some lol-worthy moments that your average dance floor denizen will have seen many, many times. Interestingly, the track choices are totally appropriate for each of the dance moves, which is a nice touch. It’s good for a few cheap laughs to help deal with the Monday melancholy. Cmon, dude in rave pants twerking? You know you’re into it.
