Share Frank Buckles died recently. He served in France, in WWI. He was taken captive by the Japanese during WWII (as a civilian, even) and he even rode on the Carpathia (the ship that came to Titanic’s rescue). However, his biggest claim to fame is living until the age of 110 (damn!) and being the [...]

ShareEntropy’s a bitch. I have started writing again. It’s neat. It’s creaky, rusty, and the leather’s all dried out, but I think the old girl might have some life in her. This pleases me, and scares me a little. It’s been a long time since I just went for it. Charlie Brown and the Football [...]
ShareHere is the second installment of “Back When He Wrote With Substance”, also known as reposts from my old blog. The first repost I did was about Orson Welles and F for Fake. It’s another artifact from Ur-Youdopia, and it’s about Philip K Dick, the Black Iron Prison, and Care Bears. Enjoy. Thanks for reading. [...]
ShareBig thank you to Dangerous Minds, for again finding the funny. It’s the funniest thing ever.
ShareFuck Dudeism. This is the way. Ron Swanson is the man.
Share There are tons of these videos going around, but this is the funniest one of them all. Radiohead’s new album is awesome, btw. I wrote about it here. Woof. You can see the original video (for Lotus Flower) in that post as well. Dig it. This video shows how much funnier you can be [...]
ShareThis guy is awesome. He is a DIY solar enthusiast, YouTube Channel owner, and budding super villain. His name is Eric Jacqmain, and he is super badass. He took a satellite dish, 5800 mirrors, and a wagon, and created a solar death ray. Archimedes made one a couple thousand years ago, and he was a [...]
Share Substitute “Daddy’s money.” for “Kyle’s Money.”
Share Forsooth, Forsooth Yon Bard Speaks Truth I saw this on my wife’s Tumblr, (which is a much better idea than a blog, btw) and it knocked me back, with the power of the humor. If I were to encounter this in an urban setting, I would drop to the ground like a golem sans [...]
ShareRIP, RAW Guerilla Ontology’s Shining Star It’s been entirely too long since I’ve lauded Robert Anton Wilson. He’s the reason Youdopia exists, online, and inside. Robert Anton Wilson seems to function in spacetime, as a hub for myriad similar, yet tangential paths of wisdom, knowledge, and humor. Genius laughs. Greed Grimaces.Democracy Dodders.
ShareThis is another loving shout out to Cyanide and Happiness, the hilarious webcomic by the silly fellows at Explosm.net. I hope you enjoy the humor. I think it happens to be the Funniest Thing Ever.
ShareBlame it on my ADD, baby. I know nothing about Awolnation, but I know I love this song. This video is of a live performance of the song, Sail. It’s awesome. If you want to hear the original, you can click here. It is the Coolest Thing Ever.
Share How many famous people can you see? I seen John Paul Jones, John Bonham (of Led Zeppelin) Kenney Jones (The Faces, The Who), Ronnie Lane (The Faces), and (I think) David Gilmour’s telecaster. The song is Rockestra Theme, and it was recorded in October of 1978. Paul McCartney and Wings released this on Back [...]
ShareI really like Radiohead, and I’ve been looking forward to their new album, The King Of Limbs, for a little while. I pre-ordered it, in fact. Imagine my delight when I found out that they released it, for download, a day early. This post is virtually identical to the one on Dangerous Minds (where I [...]
ShareI love this song. I love the album from which this song originates. I don’t know if I love Kanye West, because the only album of his I have is Graduation. I love fish sticks too. Does that make me a gay fish? I’m the genius voice of a generation (X), just like Kanye. This [...]
ShareI am sad to hear of the death of Kenneth Mars. He was really funny in everything he did. He was great as Otto on Malcolm in the Middle, and he was insanely good as Inspector Kemp, in Young Frankenstein. Rest In Peace, Kenneth Mars.
Share This is neato, Youdopia. Young Chase Britton, is three years old, and although a bit behind, developmentally, he’s alive and aware. He also has no cerebellum. That’s the part of the brain that does (almost) everything. Balance, emotions, and motor skills. He’s also missing the part of the Medula that controls breathing (the pons) [...]
ShareThis is a very special Led Zeppelin show, Youdopia. This is one of the only (maybe the only) live performance of Four Sticks, and Gallows Pole. I’m talking Led Zeppelin, not the later versions played by Jimmy Page & Robert Plant, during their Page/Plant tours. You don’t much better than Zeppelin in 1971. Robert Plant’s [...]
ShareI was checking my analytics, because I am a narcissist, and I saw a boost in traffic, coming from the news site/paper, The Guardian (guardian.co.uk). To my great surprise I saw that my post about the guy who made Angry Birds in real life, was listed as one of their Internet Picks of the Week. [...]
