Link Dump: Round Up Of Random Weird Stuff Issue 4

The time has come once again for yet another Jawbone Radio Link Dump, sponsored by Drake's Fruit Pies, the fruit pie that makes you want to die.

This link dump has everything you'd want: robots, GWAR-like metal singers, DVD commentaries by fans and so much more. So let's get to it!

From Randy: The video for "Ray" by the band Millenicon. As Randy puts it, " You just don’t see enough of good music videos with airplanes fighting giant robots." We wholeheartedly agree.


For those of you who love seeing a lame dork jam out to his own music, check out this. Then check out this cartoon. Thanks Nephew Mark!

Also from Mark, today's weird experiment with sound waves is called Cornstarch Fingers. Oh, and who can forget The Family Guy Roll Call.


A few weeks ago, we posted a link to a fan-based DVD commentary by Jawbone Troubador, Jonathan Coulton for Raiders of the Lost Ark. Pretty cool idea, no? Well, what's even cooler is that someone has made software that let's you sync up the fan-based commentary with the DVD. Developer Steve writes: "Users simply download a commentary, then assign it to any portion of the DVD. From that point on, the DVD and commentary stay in sync -- even as you fast-forward and rewind the DVD. Cool stuff. "

Cool stuff indeed, you can check it out and download it (windows only for now) at

Incidentally, I'd like to be able to do a show like this in the future where we're commentating along with a specific DVD. Stay tuned for details!


From Wayne in the UK: These guys sang a pretty ballsy song for the Eurovision Song Contest -- kind of like American Idol in the UK only with bands, it would seem. The song proclaims the band is the winner of the contest, although they came in 6th place. Oh well, can't blame them for trying.

Also. if you're looking for a band that has a lot of spirit gum, prosthetic cheeks and fangs, Lordi should tide you over until the next GWAR concert. Just watch.


Also from Wayne, the Sci-Fi Spelling Bee.

That should keep you busy at least through lunch. Thanks for the links folks and keep em coming!
