awesome acapellas

so i was up late for video surfing at youtube for no real reason at all last night.  while searching for Boyz II Men’s acapella version of ‘can you stand the rain‘ i came across some pretty cool stuff!  these are essentiallyglee club-style renditions of some good classics. warning: the audiences are annoying and the sound aint so great.

here’s a nintendo acapella, complete with interpretive dance:

a Nickelodeon medley(whatchall know about The Beets??):

‘thriller,’ also with interpretive dance:

outkast’s ‘the way you move.’ i will admit to doing my own interpretive dance to this:

& this is my fave of the day, largely because of the singer’s fro and because whoever did this arrangement knows enough abt music to be able to link curtis mayfield’s ‘move on up‘ and kanye’s ‘ touch the sky:’

shout out to ‘glee‘ for makin this shit cool again.

 

jon arbuckle was a headcase.

only we couldn’t see it so clearly because we were distracted by the loveable, lardy obesity of garfield.  his presence helped us laugh at john’s shortcomings and see him as the loveable loser, but take that away and you basically have a clinically depressed, bi-polar schizoid.  no, really. 

clinical depression:  symptoms:  lethargy; suicidal thoughts/attempts; fatigue; immense sadness; isolation; feelings of hopelessness, worthlessness, and helplessness.

manic depression/bipolar disordera mood disorder characterized by the presence of one or more episodes of abnormally elevated mood (mania), followed by episodes of intense depression, or mixed episodes characterized by the presense of both mania and depression simultaneously.

schizophrenia:  symptoms:   disorganized thinking, auditory hallucinations, and delusions.

these are from the uber fantastic project garfield minus garfield.  whoever noticed that jon was completely batshit in the course of enjoying garfield’s fat ass antics seems like my kinda person.  keen eye.  good observation. 

poor jon 😦
