Suddenly, the Internet is worth it

Well hello there, my bloggity devotees. It's Tuesday...as if you didn't know. And you all know what that means, right? It means nothing. Stick that in your "season of magic" pipe and smoke it.

Today was the Golden Globe nominations...but man are they depressing. I love watching the awards show itself, not just because of my sick fascination with arbitrary assessments of artistic merit, but because they let the attendees drink heavily. That's good entertainment (and probably bad policy thanks to the sobriety issues in Hollywood). The problem is, The Oscars at least attempt to pretend to reward the best work of the year. The Golden Globes just nominated Burlesque and The Tourist. Someone astutely pointed out that the category of Best Musical/Comedy at the Golden Globes may cross over quite notably with the Razzies award for Worst Picture. That's shocking. I know that the Hollywood Foreign Press Whores really want Angelina Jolie to come to the ceremony because they can't get enough of her Crypt Keeper physique. But seriously, her movie was a turd that turds would shun for being too turdy. The lack of True Grit completely? The double Depp nomination in a year he didn't do anything of value? THE NOMINATION OF ALICE IN WONDERLAND FOR ANYTHING OTHER THAN ITEM ON EARTH THAT MOST MAKES ME HATE EARTH? You're a joke, Golden Globes. A four-star, gold-plated piece of crap. How much do I NOT respect you? I'm pairing news of your nominations with a clip involving Yogi Bear.

This traveled around the interwebs like coax cables were covered in gasoline and a porn site lit a match. But if you haven't seen it, I give to you the best combination of two movies that don't belong anywhere near each other in all of history. It's not enough to make me want to see the movie, but I hope that the effects person who did this gets rich and famous. I will give them the best "good luck wish" you can give to an effects person: May you never work with George Lucas. Here's the genius:

When the music kicks in at the end: Perfection. I can think of no better thing to show you. I practically want to retire the blog after this. Watch it a few times. It's funny every time.
