We don't know how good this is but it is awfully goofy.
"Never Say 'Never' Always Say 'Revver'" is Rob Pongi's humorous promo for his favorite internet video sharing company known as "Revver": http://www.revver.com which is located right on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, CA. "Never Say 'Never' Always Say 'Revver'" was filmed on location in Tokyo, which, believe it or not, according to Rob, actually resembles L.A. in many ways! So, check it out!

Easter Videos and Bunnies


Easter is right around the corner. Watch films that celebrate the true spirit of the holiday (i.e. rampant death and dismemberment)…

Wat a Wonderful Day: Bunny pyromania.

Bunnykill: Rabbit bloodbath.

The Easter Bunny SUCKS!: Easter Bunny needs a smoke.

Urbunnies: Exposed bunny bones.

Touch of Deceit: Curiosity killed the bunny rabbit.

It's Nun Fu: Found vs. Nun Fight Club -Easter isn't just about psychotic bunnies. It's also about bloodthirsty nuns.

Have you ever been trapped by government bureaucracy - watch BureauBots

Ben Trovato tries to find out if he got a parking ticket and is sent on a phone odyssey, having to deal with the bureaucracy of the local police dept. Very simple camerawork and nice writing.

Here we go again! For the second year in a row, Sand
Blasters: The Extreme Sand Sculpting Championship brings a
one-of-a-kind competition to Travel Channel. Paired off into
teams of two, 16 of the best sand sculptors from across
America dig in to picturesque Pacific Beach in San Diego,
California, for the chance to win their share of $15,000 in
prize money. But there's one obstacle standing in their
way… Explosions! Over the course of this intense two-day
competition, five of the eight sculptures are randomly
selected for complete destruction by a Hollywood pyrotechnics
crew. The ill-fated blast victims then have the remaining
time to create another world-class work of art in order to
contend for the title of Sand Blasters 2007 Extreme Sand
Sculpting Champions.

Black Button - this is a great little student film - check it out - Mr Roberts finds himself awoken inexplicably in a white room. A man sits before him at a desk and in between them stands a black button. If Mr Roberts pushes it, he will receive a briefcase filled with millions of dollars. Or he can take the key to the door and leave penniless. The catch? Pushing the button will result in the death of a human being. What would you do?

Do you dig archeologists or do you find them a little too dusty? Check out this Radical Archaeology Television Parody. Brad Garrett and Adam Fish do a number on Josh Bernstein of the History Channel's very popular series, "Digging for the Truth." Brad and Adam, both archaeologists, are absolutely amazed that Josh, in just one hour and through his amazing stunts and in a very stylish fashion, gets to the truth that archaeologists in 100 years of research have struggled to achieve. You have to see this to believe it. More cool videos can be found at the Archeology Channel

=========================================

This is one of the top videos at TriggerStreet - Dead Shift A naive gas station clerk receives a visit from a Zombie in the dead of night. A Zombie. A Gun. A Girl. A Romantic Zombie Comedy! Very nice camera work and editing from down under.

I watched the 'parody' of "Digging for the Truth" by the obviously very Jealous guys who have spent too much time envying someone who can get "Normal" people to watch something as Boring as Archaeology by making it Interesting in a one-hour format. We all know that it takes Years of research to ever come up with any information about historical peoples, but Josh Bernstein's appearances on "Digging for the Truth" and the fact that he can actually DO "physical" activities besides squat in a square of dirt, brushing and looking for pieces of "history" is what keeps people watching! DUH!! These unnattractive guys, who mock Josh's "clothes" while they have holes in their ears the size of half-dollars just show how out of touch they are with the rest of the world. Josh won't be on "Digging for the Truth" next season, and wait to see how soon it tanks. No one will be interested in archaeology without someone attractive and masculine who can bring it to us "common" people. Too bad those too guys are such "elitists"; they might not care if anyone except other archaeologists are interested in this topic, but at least, Josh did bring it to us "poor plebes".
A Josh Fan...who finally found Archaeology Interesting!!!
