People of Walmart Song

June 24, 2011

3 Comments

It surpassed 2.5 million views on YouTube last week. Jessica Frech‘s original song and video set to images from PeopleOfWalmart.com is a prime lesson in successful self-promotion: take an Internet site that thrives on our love of laughing at people and pair it with a seriously catchy tune (seriously, don’t listen to it more than once if you don’t want to wake up singing it tomorrow) and voila: Internet meme! Of course, it doesn’t hurt that Frech is a talented musician with an ethereal voice (and a ukulele!) — but her mastery of grass-roots internet marketing is what will propel her to fame. She updates her YouTube channel religiously with covers, follow-ups to PoW, and now, through the channel, she’s just begun a weekly songwriting challenge whereby her fans suggest topics, she picks one each week and then churns out a tune: The first one came from the fan suggestion to write “a song about rep weiner and what it would be like if McDonald’s sold hot dogs (McWeiner) XD” and she launched The McWeiner Song this past Monday — it’s no “People of Walmart” but she did it in a week! She’s a machine.

Beyonce, Who Run the World? Not Girls.

June 10, 2011

1 Comment

Beyonce’s latest hit “Run the World” is a girl-power anthem, sort of: “Who run the world? Girls” over and over. Maybe it’s aspirational. Eh, probably not. We think this smart and harsh take by Vlogger “Nineteen Percent” is a better breakdown of the song: we don’t run the world, we do get disrespected, gypped at work, beat up, raped…. It’s a not-so-gentle reminder: let’s not get too complacent, ladies! There’s still much work to be done.

A Baby Video on YouTube That’s Actually Art

March 10, 2011

watch the Las Palmas trailer

This doesn’t have much to do with love and sex, except that we love this trailer which features an adorable product of sex. The teaser is from the short film LAS PALMAS by Johannes Nyholm, which just won the Short Film Award and the Audience Award at the Gothenburg Int’l Film Festival, Startsladden. (The jury statement reads: “Startsladden 2011 goes to a tragicomic movie in a crazy world that feels terribly familiar. An ingenious hybrid of Sällskapsresan and Easy Rider, which goes straight into our hearts”.) It’s even more hysterical if a) you have kids and b) have fallen down drunk before (ideally before you had kids). For updates about when the full movie will be available, “like” Nyholm’s fan page.

Weird European Music Videos, Tres Sexee?

January 14, 2011

0 Comments

Our L.A. writer friend Charlie Amter recently launched a labor-of-love blog called EUROPOPPED, what he describes as “a little epic sideblog” to “turn on more people to the crazy Euro music vids” he finds every day. And they ARE crazy. Or just foreign. Or maybe something is just getting lost in translation. Whatever the reason, it makes for entertaining time-killing, even if you can’t speak French or German…

We’re in a Ted Talk! (Sort of)

January 7, 2011

1 Comment

If you’re a faithful reader of EMandLO.com, then you know we love us a good Ted Talk. So we were thrilled to discover that the two of us were in one! Well, just a fleeting picture of us, but we’ll take what we can get. Our old boss, Nerve.com-founder Rufus Griscom, went on to found the parenting site Babble.com with his wife Alisa Volkman, and the two recently gave a Ted Talk on some big parenting taboos. Most Ted Talks include images used to illustrate the presenter’s thesis, so we were surprised and delighted, yet confused to see a 20-foot picture at the start of the talk of the four of us in an old flame-painted convertible known then as the Nerve-mobile (Rufus and Alisa in the front, us riding up and out in the back) on our way to one of those fabulous turn-of-the century Internet parties in New York City. We guess they used it to illustrate their pre-baby pre-Babble lives (Rufus said he’s always loved that picture) but viewers must wonder what those two badly dressed freeloaders are doing in the car that Ruf and Alisa are driving into the future of their lives together.

Movie Theater Marriage Proposals

January 3, 2011

0 Comments

The 21st century’s answer to the skywriting marriage proposal is turning out to be the movie theater trailer proposal, with production values and costs ever increasing. In 2008, there was the simple surprise by the nerdy boyfriend, followed by the more complicated yet similarly unwatchable airplane disaster trailer that same year, and the open love letter with the ear-shattering Kenny-G soundtrack in 2009 (here’s the in-theater reaction).  This past year gave us even bigger and better movie theater proposals: there was the iPhone app ad, Mystery Guitar Man’s fake movie with Ultimate Fighting champion Chuck Liddell (here’s how he made it), a love story with personalized Muppets, and most recently, one Jesus freak’s action movie homage to his love for Miss NY 2007. Surprisingly, though, one of the most intricate and involved fake trailers we could find was made over 10 years ago (in the film noir style)…

Genesis Finally Makes Sense

November 4, 2010

1 Comment

Writer/performer/artist Merrill Markoe visited the Creation Museum in Kentucky last year and absorbed all the “proof” there that the world was created just 6,000 years ago and that dinosaurs walked among humans. As if through divine intervention, it suddenly, recently dawned on Markoe how to help the museum make their case. So she created this video. Now we finally understand why we women deserve to be dominated by men and suffer pain during childbirth!

The Bed Intruder Costume

October 25, 2010

1 Comment

A few weeks ago we fondly wrote about the Know Your Meme podcast, and specifically highlighted their coverage of the loveable Antoine Dodson of “Bed Intruder” fame. Well, now he’s got what he (at least) is calling the # 1 Halloween get-up of 2010: The official Bed Intruder Costume! And good for him — why shouldn’t he make a buck off the joy he’s given to million of viral video heads?  Check out his YouTube video hawking the product — how can you not love this guy? It’s a vast improvement over the “sassy” Sesame Street outfits (though we must admit a Katy Perry ensemble with an Elmo doll could be pretty funny.)  Mental Floss has a good list of other Internet meme costumes (the Firefox idea is totally cool, though that posture could get a little uncomfortable after a while). Our favorite couples costume idea we’ve found so far is YourTango’s Double Rainbow suggestion. So many good ideas this year, what to be? What to be!

New Season of Craigslist TV

October 18, 2010

0 Comments

A few weeks ago, Craigslist TV (on YouTube) launched their second season of mini-documentaries based on real Craigslist ads. (Watch the trailer for the series here.) If you think reading the ads is great entertainment for inducing second-hand embarrassment, try watching them. Our favorite, of course, is still the first one from the first season, “Trista and Tara’s Missed Connection,” probably because it reminds us of our own humiliating single life adventures (i.e. two drunk girls out looking for love in all the wrong places!). All L.A.-based, the episodes are surprisingly well-crafted, simple, quirky, painful and touching in their own ways.
