Sweet Short Film Shows How Tough Life Is For A Teenager In Love

Video: Love is tough as an adult but, remember when you were a young teen dreaming about that person at school or in your building, the one who never paid attention to you? That’s the case of the young man in Paper Planes — a sweet short film created by London-based Jamie Childs — and his paper plane love notes.


Cerebrospinal Fluid Is The Key To Surviving The Zombie Apocalypse (NSFW)

Specifically, by having unpalatable CSF. How one actually acquires a bitter taste to their brain gravy is both difficult and undesirable — cancer. If such a odd scenario was to eventuate, however, the zombies would probably just ignore you if their primary interest was in grey matter, rather than flesh. This is exactly the set of circumstances that the clip above — called “Super Zero” — explores, with mixed (though mostly entertaining) results. Contains NSFW language.

That Time Steve Coogan Saved A Small Radio Station Under Siege

When a radio station in Norwich, England, is taken over by a shotgun-wielding, past-his-prime DJ who’s disgruntled after being let go, only one man can reason with him: Alan Partridge.

Banks, Master Of Sexy Pool Party Songs, May Be Our Next Great Pop Diva

Certain songs and musicians conjure a very specific mood. LA-based singer Jillian Banks has mastered a kind of music designed to pipe through the air on a humid July night as you engage in a lascivious and potentially morally ambiguous make-out session in an infinity pool.


This Week's Top Comedy Video: The Onion Reviews Planet Of The Apes (NSFW)

Video: Peter Rosenthal’s here this week to review the new Planet of the Apes movie. No, not the one from 2011. No, not the one from 2001. Nope, not 1973, 1972, 1971, 1970, or 1968. No, the other one.


Skydiving Elephants And Other Animals Doing Crazy Stunts

Video: Watch a bunch of elephants, giraffes, turtles and ostriches doing extreme human stunts like skydiving, riding roller coasters, walking a tightrope, skateboarding a half pipe and so forth — thanks to the magic of computers, of course. It’s ok, there’s no need to call RSPCA. The elephants are not real. For an old ad campaign for France 3. It’s cute and ticklish to imagine real animals wanting to do the crazy stuff we do.


How They Made The Most Famous Exploding Head In Internet's History (NSFW)

If you have been on the internet for at least a few months, you probably came across a version of the animated GIF below (warning: NSFW). You may be wondering a) where the hell does this exploding head come from or b) how the hell did they do it? The answer to a) is David Cronenberg’s Scanners — and here’s the answer to b.


Combine Australian Politics With Puppets? Watch The Hilarious Result

The current government has found itself on the receiving end of some unflattering, though humorous satire, not that it’s done itself any favours since coming into power. You can now add a new locally-produced YouTube series called “Puppet Government” to the list of parodies, which combines muppet-like theatrics with, well, somewhat questionable politics.


That Time Some Of The Greatest Minds In Comedy Got To Talking

“Inside the Actor’s Studio” is, I think we can all agree, a major snooze-fest — what with James Lipton’s monotonous droning and all. But if you want to get inside the minds of Hollywood’s elite comedians without falling asleep, look no further than the Nantucket Film Festival’s Comedy Roundtable.
