Transformer RV

After graduating high school, three Japanese buddies decided to follow their dream of a year-long cross-country road trip, from the northeastern island of Hokkaido to the southwestern one of Yakushima. But before they set out, the trio built one of the coolest road trip cars ever conceived, from a decrepit mid-80s Toyota Toyoace.

Pouring Gasoline on a Fire

Just a friendly reminder that there's more than one lone voice in the wilderness.

The F-ing Big Lebowski

What's that you say? You want a video of every f-bomb dropped in what is arguably the best movie of all time? Here you go (needless to say NSFW, children, your mom, etc.):

Also available, the "Dude" cut, which is somehow just not as good.

Behold Beard Man!

Watch all of the episodes and other good stuff at Fake Wood Wallpaper and also here.

I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Alex Orr (one of the geniuses behind Beard Man, who may or may not play the title character) at last year's Sidewalk Film Festival and I've been remiss in highlighting his clearly PoF-worthy work here. A thousand pardons, dear readers.

Classic Hits by Microsoft Songsmith

Microsoft's original commercial for Songsmith might not have been all that convincing, but these music videos more than make the case for the product:

"Creep" by Radiohead
"Roxanne" by The Police
"Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" by The Beatles
"Dead Wrong" by Notorious B.I.G.
"Just What I Needed" by The Cars

There are plenty more if you just can't get enough...

Space Bloop?!

PoF first alerted you to the mysterious ocean Bloop last January. This new year brings word of a new roar from outer space. Is this new noise related to the Bloop? Is it friendly, foely or completely meaningless? These and other questions will not be answered in our next installment.

But, beware, the mighty Cthulhu does not sleep forever...

Via Stereogum: "Considering the publicity wonders The Grey Album worked for Danger Mouse, we're surprised it's taken so long for someone to cook this one up. Enter the enterprising DJ Minty Fresh Beats, who's mashed instrumental tracks from OK Computer, Kid A, and In Rainbows with various Jigga raps on a set titled Jaydiohead. Download it at"

English errors mad libs

English Errors

The "Common Errors in English" site by Paul Brians is fun all on its own, but you can take it to the next level by combining as many errors as you can into a single sentence.

For example, "Early adapters to the intranet may face a steep learning curve when trying to run the gamut through the buttload of factoids presented on PoF."
