Dance Floor Dale is the shit

The internet is a beautiful thing.
I don’t really have to tell you that, of course seeing that you’re on it, and that your tastes are so obscure that you actually find my site on your list of places you visit.
If you’ve made it all the way over to here, you probably see more shit on the internet everyday than I do.
I go to the internet first thing every day to read what the fuck is going on in the world, and to find out what I’m supposed to be scared shitless of.
The only time I watch the old school tv news is by accident – like if it just happened to be on that channel when I turned it on.
I caught some of it the other night, and it felt like I was watching a fucking parody.
They’re still doing dopey tricks to keep you tuned in, like, “Coming up next, the common household product that could be deadly! You’re not going to believe it.”
I couldn’t believe they were still running that tired old game.

No such games are played on the internet.
On the internet the information is almost instant.
I constantly have to remind myself how fucking truly incredible that is.
I’ve got this google ap thing on my iphone, and it has a button where you click it and you just say something for it to google, like “gay republican scandal” and-BAM!! -There’s more material on the subject than you could read in a lifetime.
Instantly you get the answer to almost everything known or proven. We’re literally only limited by our questions and the veracity of the source of information. We’re just so used to it I don’t think we truly realize how fucking beautiful it is. This fucking thing we’re chatting on is enlightening the world and connecting us in ways we are just starting to understand.

It’s also bringing us some really fucking cool shit to look at.
I mean, all that information is nice, but one of the coolest things about the internet is how much fun it is. We’re being subjected to WAY more funny shit every day than people were during World War 2. Ever see pictures of people that lived back then?
Those fucks were hardly ever smiling. Because of the internet we get more funny presented to us every day than anyone in human history by a long shot.
Every day I’ll read a new funny blog, or a messageboard post that makes me LOL! Or I see a new photoshopped picture of some hilarious cat explaining what a fucking loser you are.

There’s lots of funny stuff on the internet, but every now and then you run into something truly special.
Occasionally you’ll see something that just perfectly exemplifies what’s possible with the freedom of the internet and the technology available today, and that my friends is this fucking incredible gem known as Dance Floor Dale. These guys Tim and Eric that have this really trippy show on Adult Swim created it.

My friend Eddie emailed me a link to this the other day, and I made a thread about it on my messageboard, but this video is so fucking powerful I had to talk about it here too. I just don’t want anyone to miss this.
I don’t want to tell you too much about it, just that it gets better ever time I see it.
I’ve probably watched the fucking thing 30 times by now and shown it to everyone I know. It’s funny, it’s weird, and it’s fucking awesome.

This video below contains some explicit cartoon scenes, flashing lights and is FOR OVER 18′s ONLY.
