Voice of Optimus Prime is also The Predator

noims says...

For some reason I'll always remember a friend saying to me "The predator was played by a bloke called Kevin."

I like to imagine that that was it's real name.

Crash leads to bee attack and hilarity ensues.

Pink Floyd - One of These Days

noims says...

... aaaaaand now I'm listening to the album.

I just got given out to for the song leaving an itch unscratched, but for me it's the positive version of being more-ish, with the only antidote being the next tune, and the next...

Floyd are drugs made music. Puns intended. Meddle is very much my drug of choice.

HowToBasic - How To Make Ramen

noims says...

Not sure I'd be able to make this all that quickly, but I agree it would take longer to clean up.

I do have a sudden inexplicable craving for noodles, though. It is pretty late, so I might just have a bath.

Trevor Responds to Criticism from the French Ambassador

noims says...

I have a few French friends, and as I see it there's quite a fundamental cultural difference at play here. I'll do my best to explain it, although I don't fully understand it myself.

There's a very fundamental French principle of equality that's considered as sacred as American freedom of speech. It means that when you're French, you're French, and explicitly not a member of a sub-culture. I heard about this when they banned wearing a hijab (I think) in schools: the children are French first, and must comply by French norms above others.

The French government have fought very hard to fight the foundation of religious and ethnic sub-cultures within France. This is obviously very different to the American approach of embracing your heritage and, just as Freedom of Speech has unwanted side-effects, so does this. The players are French, not African. Their cultural past was indeed wiped when they became French (at birth or otherwise). Yes, they're of African descent, but that's considered very different to being African.

Now, it's fair enough to argue the the American approach is better, but I think it's important to understand that this is not the French approach. There is a fundamental cultural difference there, and without understanding that, you're going to miss the point of their argument.

Ants do have three times the upper appendages we do, if you include the antennae.

Dude! How do you post so many vids just minutes apart? Are you a bot? Usually takes me 10 minutes to do one.

Cyriak - Indigestion

noims says...

I love Cyriac, and it's nice to see it's not just self-replicating nightmares anymore.

However, it's not nice that I have an appointment tomorrow morning with a dentist I've never seen before, in a country with a different alphabet to home.

Should not have watched 'one more before I go to bed'.

Why Do Reporters Talk Like That?

Pink Panther theme song played with marker/sharpie.

Nice. Assuming it's the same person, they've obviously invested heavily in their setup since the *related=https://videosift.com/video/Imperial-March-played-on-pencil-and-paper

Me too, but I figured it out:

John Oliver - Family Separation

noims says...

I agree.

In my experience as a teacher, if I find a lesson plan that works well I'm going to repeat it near-verbatim to multiple different classes of students, and I'm going to do it every year/term until it stops working. Same thing often goes for comedians, stage actors, musicians, etc.

Is it funny when you clip those together and show a near-robotic adherence to cadence, tone, etc.? Yeah, kinda. But it doesn't really show anything that is a valid criticism, which is what John Oliver's show is usually all about. Like, for example, criticizing citing the bible as justification for ridiculously draconian separation of families during immigration arrests... (hence the upvote)

The bit about Schumer's graduation speech is sort of a weird thing to poke fun at.
