  1. I really want that external hardrive haha.. or if they do one of the 3rd colossi I would totally get it 😀

  2. Why does Hobbit Downey Jr. want a butterbeer?

  3. The misty mountain rendition was excellent!

    • I second that.

      • Ditto..
        Nothing like hearing a well sung Accapella tune.

  4. Man are those GofT children singing adorable. Also, Bryan Cranston made me laugh silly.

  5. Wow, TNG actors were so young back then! (except Patrick Stewart, he never looks any different). Was that Worf in Jordi’s outfit and eyewear??
    It was weird seeing Brent Spiner smiling and smirking as Data.
    Wesley was always the one casting choice I never agreed with. What a dillweed.

  6. I must say that all those mashups don’t do much for me anymore. It was pretty hilarious the first 2.000 times, but slowly but surely the joke gets rather stale, regardless of the mashing combination.

  7. The Bane outtakes are pure gold.

  8. Txgrizz was never heard from again…… Bryan Cranston is hardcore

  9. My thoughts on biggest Oscar snubs…
    1. Shakespeare In Love winning over Saving Private Ryan and (my favorite that year) The Thin Red Line.
    2. Naomi Watts not winning Best Actress for Mulholland Dr..
    3. Gary Oldman still has a mantle that doesn’t have an Oscar on it.
    4. Alfred Hitchcock doesn’t did win a Oscar for Psycho or Rear Window.
    5. Kathryn Bigelow snubbed this year for Zero Dark Thirty.
    I understand that some people may think that including Bigelow is a knee jerk reaction about this years nominations but I really think this is one of the biggest mistakes the Academy has ever made. Ridiculous!!!

  10. Biggest Oscar snubs. A great list and a testament to the collective intelligence of the Academy. Also, Donnie Darko is really not all that difficult to comprehend. I could explain it, but I am pretty sure there’s still someone somewhere who has not seen it and wants to.

  11. jordie is scary with that fro

  12. Klingon Sam Jackson is hilarious looking.

  13. Oh Yeah! My Hobbit Downney Jr. Thank you a lot
    Really thrilling to see my own work spoted here
