"Reno" by Cory McAbee
I saw Stingray Sam for the third time this weekend and it was every bit as much fun as the first. The Fantastic Fest crowd was a natural fit for this space cowboy musical and I'm sure they'll be buying the DVD when it comes out in a few weeks. This short film, Reno, was mentioned during the Q&A so I sought it out. Another fun song from McAbee and the screen debut of his daughter Willa, who has a much larger part in Stingray Sam.

Ode to (Musical, Sarcastic, Ultraviolent) Joy
Fortunately, it seems the subversive spirit at Henson Studios hasn't died -- it's gone a bit more underground and is leaking its way out any way it can. In particular it has found a home on YouTube. Great new bits like the one below have been showing up on everyone's favorite video service and they make good use of the staples that have made the Muppets so entertaining over the years: music, sarcasm, and slapstick violence. Perhaps it's a viral campaign for the upcoming Muppet movie? Is it just a way for the Muppeteers to let out some old-school wackiness? I don't care. Just keep 'em coming.

John C. Reilly - Walks Hard, Rocks Hard
John C. Reilly was in town to rock the legendary Stubb's BBQ as Dewey Cox, the subject of Jake Kasdan's new film Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. I got a chance to see the film and the performance, and both were excellent. See the full report over at Slackerwood along with some video of the concert.

"Four Eyed Monsters" on YouTube
That's right, the 71-minute movie that has spurred a lot of debate on the future of independent film and film distribution is now available in its entirety on YouTube for one week (until this coming Friday). I believe this is the first time YouTube has put up a feature film, and Lord knows how long it will take to download the thing, but if you're curious now you can see it for nothing. Click play above or visit the page on YouTube.
Disclosure: I work for B-Side Entertainment, the company that distributes Four-Eyed Monsters and other fine indie films on DVD and by digital download (you can get the iPod-ready version for just three bucks).

Commission an awesome new cover of the Beatles "Hello Goodbye" by Sophia Shorai and the only place I can hear it is on YouTube. Well, there and on Shorai's awesome advertising jingles page.
[Update - Shorai's jingles page is awesome, but the "Hello Goodbye" jingle isn't there. Aw. Still worth a click and a listen.]

Pepto Monsters on YouTube - finally!
The theme song is completely obnoxious, but it's always fun to see giant monsters in a commercial. The five "monsters" featured here are Paul Bunyan (?), the 50-Foot Woman in a toga, a brown spiky-headed Godzilla-type lizard, a giant fly creature, and a giant belching robot. And they all dance that strange Macarena-like dance that indicates they need Pepto. 100% awesome.

R.I.P. Joseph Barbera
An excerpt from the Joe Barbera wikipedia article:
Hanna and Barbera's 17-year partnership on the Tom & Jerry series resulted in 7 Academy Awards for Best (Cartoon) Short Subject, and 14 total nominations, more than any other character-based theatrical animated series. Hanna and Barbera were placed in charge of MGM's animation division in late 1955; however this was short-lived as MGM closed the division in 1957. Following this they teamed up to produce the series The Ruff & Reddy Show, under the company name H-B Enterprises, soon changed to Hanna-Barbera Productions.
Hanna-Barbera Productions became by the late-1960s the most successful television animation studio in the business, producing hit television programs, such as The Flintstones, The Jetsons, Jonny Quest, and Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! by the end of the decade.
And a compilation of Hanna-Barbera logos (and others) by some YouTube dudes.
Thanks, Joe. You will be missed.

Make your own Britney Spears
An excerpt from Before the Music Dies, a documentary about the music biz from the distribution company I work for, B-Side Entertainment. I believe I've mentioned the film here previously.
My favorite part of this video is the revelation that Jewel's most recognizable hit was written by a 45-year old man, but I'm sure the music video portion will speak more to some people.

Funny for about the first thirty seconds, then it gets old. (Is that supposed to be DeNiro?) Still, wait it out for the Muppet cameo near the end. (Not safe for work due to liberal use of the F-bomb.)
