This one goes out to my man Al Howell, who suffered through a week-long This Hour hiatus in Halifax, alone. How did he fill the idle hours? Watch today’s vid and find out!

(DISCLAIMER: I’ve actually no idea when or where this was shot, just that the Plain Brown Wrapper peeps were behind it…)

Bowling Problems

Today’s short comes from Currie Conservatory alumnus Mark “Merk” Wetherspoon — it’s actually a music video from his band The Alcoholic Freaks.

It’s also a PSA, a musical warning re: the hazards of a certain indoor sport. Read along with the lyrics and decide for yourself!

I bowled
I dropped the ball
Bowling
I hurt my leg
My foot got out of place
Went out of the place
The place
When out of place
Went out of the place
Jess has problems with his leg
Bowling problems
Bowling problems
Bowling problems
Jess has problems with his leg
Bowling problems
Bowling problems
Bowling problems
I don’t want to bowl anymore
I always get pissed off at that
My leg started hurting
I hurt my leg
My bowling leg
I need some peas for my leg
I need some peas for my knees
Jess has problems with his leg
Bowling problems
Bowling problems
Bowling problems
Jess has problems with his leg
Bowling problems

I would caution against strong language and adult themes, but that just makes you want to watch it more, doesn’t it? Check out Brian’s YouandMedia site if this vid leaves you unsatisfied…

What Canadian comedy blog would be complete without a classic from hotdogboy?

Back in the day I featured this short and many more from Rub & Tug at my Second Cine screenings — these days the boys are busy with work and family, but maybe one day we’ll see a new masterpiece of comedic minimalism on their site… Here’s hoping!

Everydave Life

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I was there when today’s short won the Funny or Die Award for Best Video in Canada. Just so’s you know, one of the stipulations of the contest was that the following phrase had to be spoken in every entry:

Pierre Trudeau said there’d be days like this…

Pig and Bunny in What’s Under There?

In celebration of the approaching Valentine’s Day here’s an adorable coming of age story that Bruce Simpson made for Darryl’s Hard Liquor and Porn Fest. More excellent vids can seen at Bruce’s YouTube page, and will probably make their way here as well!
