Friday Fun Stuff  
It hasn't been a great week for fun stuff, but here's a few things.

First, it's the usual geeky parody of a bad song. This time it's "We're NASA and We Know It (Mars Curiosity)", a parody of that LMFAO song, "Sexy And I Know It". It is a cute parody (it's about NASA and space after all =) but honestly if i was going to be forced to listen to one of the two, i think "Call Me Maybe" is a better song, especially musically. You can certainly make parodies of bad songs as well as "good" ones, but probably the best parodies are the ones where the tune is catchy but the lyrics aren't so great, and i'm not too fond of the "Sexy And I Know It" tune.

But anyways, in addition to music, it seems that once upon a time there was something on Escapist called "Doraleous and Associates." It's a D&D parody that kind of reminds me of Aqua Teen Hunger Force (but maybe that's just because they've got a guy who sounds exactly like Meatwad.) I never really got into Aqua Teen Hunger Force for some reason, but the D&D/generic fantasy setting seems a little more appealing.

So Escapist let the show wither on the vine, and now the creators are re-releasing it on YouTube, apparently hoping to drum up support for a Kickstarter or something to fund more episodes.

So here's the first re-released episode:

Finally, someone did a reasonably impressive mash-up movie of Legend of Zelda and the western genre. It's a three part series, totaling about 20 minutes. First part is here:
