There's not as much yelling in this video as one might expect.
Have you ever been in an argument on the Internet? Of course you have. That's like 50% of what the Internet is made of. (The other half is cats.) Slacktory's Nick Douglas did a great job of portraying every type of Internet arguer in this one video.Read More
This hits a little close to home for most of Geekosystem.
Some of us have a pathological need to be right and to let others know how right we are. This video by Slacktory editor Nick Douglas shows just how lonely that can truly be. You'll either think it's funny or it will make you question how you live your life. Though, Nick does make one mistake in the video...Read More
The Creator of Flappy Bird Explains Why He Deleted The App in This Totally Real, Not-at-All Fake Video
Parody? What's that?
Yup, this is 100% a true statement from Dong Nguyen, for sure. It's certainly not a parody video done by Nick Douglas of Slacktory fame. Nope. Just a white dude with a Vietnamese name, talking about a game that he definitely created. Nothing else to see here. Take everything we say at face value for the rest of your lives.Read More
Captain's Log, Stardate 2258.42: I peed a little, watching this video.
We once told you that the Star Wars: Derp Edition trailer was the best-ever use of bloopers. Then, we were pretty sure that award actually went to The Avengers: Derp Edition. But the folks at Slacktory have returned to prove us wrong, yet again, with this herp-derptastic edit of Star Trek (2009). No, it's not just Star Trek Into Darkness.Read More
A bah humbug to all, and to all a reminder that suicide rates spike around the holidays!
Christmas season is in full swing, and not everyone is happy about it. Least of all, the Christmas-hating Scrooges that Slacktory editor Alex Moschina pulled together for this holiday-bashing Supercut. Of course, there's the O.G. Scrooge himself in several permutations, but some of the Christmas curmudgeons may surprise you.Read More
You don't get to say if they chuckle.
It's been a couple of months since Nick Douglas introduced Siri to the world of Dungeons &Dragons, and since then she's gotten a lot better at understanding the whole "fictional power fantasy" thing that makes D&D so great. Too bad this time around, Nick isn't taking the game very seriously. Well, too bad for Siri. For us, it's great.Read More
Nothing bad could possibly happen, right?
People in horror movies make terrible decisions. Case in point: somebody always suggests that the big group of people break up into smaller, more easily murderable groups of people, and nobody thinks this is a bad idea. In other news, "check it out" and "split up" don't sound like a phrases anymore.Read More
Now try to imagine the same amount of terror being provoked by a dog. Tricky, huh?
It happens in basically every horror movie: somebody's walking down a long dark hallway or spooky area early into the film, a cat runs by, and everyone loses their minds for a second. Someday it's going to be the cat that's secretly killing everybody and we're all going to feel real silly -- at least, that's what Slacktory thinks.Read More
In the words of the immortal Kathy Geiss from 30 Rock: "KISS, KISS, KISS!"
You know what's an even more pervasive trope than the end-of-the-movie couple kiss? The mid-movie interrupted-kiss. Alex Moschina knows about this tension-inducing trope all too well, since he's the guy who constructed a four minute supercut for Slacktory with nothing but almost kisses. God, somebody just make out with somebody else already!Read More
Where the sun is always shining and the air smells like warm meth!
I'm sure we all remember when we were eleven years old and first discovered Weird Al's magnum opus, "Albuquerque." The novelty might have worn off just a little in the past 15 years, but Slacktory managed to make the song new again by mashing it up with AMC's Breaking Bad. Trust us, it works surprisingly well, bitch.Read More
You die of the plague.
The latest video from Slacktory puts Siri in the role of Dungeon Master as Nick Douglas tries to play the saddest game of Dungeons & Dragons we've ever seen. What happens when Siri applies her cold, calculating computer brain to a rather imagination-heavy task like guiding a player through a fantasy quest? It goes about as well as you'd expect a game of D&D with one player and a phone robot to go.Read More
This is too much. Far too much.
YouTube user OneMinuteGalactica made this video for the Slacktory channel, and it takes the audio from the original Terminator trailer, but replaces it with footage from the bizarre Woody Allen film Sleeper. That's brilliant. We've posted a few of these kind of mashups before, and they're all great, or we wouldn't waste your time with them, but really -- Sleeper/Terminator? That's genius. Now I have to go home and see if I can sync the full movies up like Dark Side of the Moon and The Wizard of Oz.Read More
In case you were wondering, "not so" falls right between "kinda different" and "exactly the same" on the "how different are we" scale.
The trope of characters on opposing sides of a conflict recognizing their shared traits is a common one, but only because it tends to be hold true -- for all our differences, humanity tends to exhibit more or less the same behavior anywhere it happens to go. Or, in the words of my favorite movie psychiatrist, Peter from Tommy Wiseau's The Room, "People are people." Certainly he'd approve of this quick new supercut from Slacktory, in which people in movies explain to other people in movies how much of their people-ness they happen to share with one another. As you can expect, it's mostly supervillains trying to get a rise out of their heroic counterparts, and all using the exact same phrasing to do it.Read More
The fact that we live in a world without a real Bob Loblaw Law Blog is upsetting.
Longtime readers of Geekosystem will know that we sure do love the online technology that gets made up for TV shows and movies -- the more generic and hokey, the better. Nobody puts together a fictitious website frontpage like Arrested Development, though (although I have to admit that I really enjoyed many of the Heroes first season ARG sites at the time), and the latest season definitely did not disappoint in that regard. Luckily, Slacktory's saved you the trouble of "Something" searching for all those references yourself with a supercut of all the important ones. I'm surprised that so many of those domains are still up for grabs. Why hasn't anybody snatched up BarryGood.Biz yet?Read More
He who wields the Power Glove wields the power.
Video games in movies tend to be the butt of jokes, and video games movies in general are just awful in general. That's why Slacktory's cobbled together a 20-minute montage of video games in movies. It showcases the good, the bad, and truly ugly, but nothing comes close to Freddy Krueger's Power Glove comment. If you've never seen that particular cringe-worthy moment, you owe it to yourself to give this a watch.Read More
Our buddies over at Slacktory recut the 1971 Steven Spielberg movie Duel, replacing most of the audio with that of a driver's ed filmstrip from 1949. The result is pure genius, as well as a great way to watch pretty much all the important parts of the movie in just under four minutes.Read More
There are few things I love more than Doctor Who, but even I have to admit that some of the mocked-up websites and apps depicted in the show are a little bonkers. I won't go through and list the worst offenders, but the folks at Slacktory sure seem to be up to the task. They've put together a compilation of cheesy sites and apps from what appear to be the first four seasons of the current Doctor Who.Read More
It's the B-list characters -- Jefferson Twilight! Number Twenty Four! Truckules! -- that really make Venture Bros. for me. Luckily, it's apparent that the fine folks at Slacktory share my unwholesome love for these minor characters, including one of my favorites -- Brock Samson's mentor Col. Hunter Gathers. Get a look at the Hunter S. Thompson-inspired black ops bigwig's finest moments in this supercut, and stick around for a look at some of the greatest forces for evil in the history of the show with a supercut of Venture Villains. Caution: Contains spoilers, watch at your own risk.Read More
I seriously don't know what we'd do without YouTube-hosted pop culture mashups. We need them to help offset all the nefarious uses people have created with the Internet (malware, porn, etc.). So thank the stars we have videos like this one -- "Star Wars vs. Jurassic Park" (on the YouTube channel Slacktory) -- which combines two things that while awesome on their own, are also surprisingly awesome mashed together, sort of like a cinematic version of chocolate and peanut butter.Read More
