Because I asked for it.

This bit of awesomeness from a. lee carter.

1. Hello.

2. The tweet that inspired this — and many other Lord of the Rings-related tweets — await you here.

  1. Y’know that TV commercial that says “With a name like ‘Smuckers’, it’s got to be good”?

    NO! No, it DOESN’T, as a matter of fact. The name conjures no images of goodness whatsoever! It sounds like some kind of sticky fly-trap substance, or possibly an auto part.

    HOWEVER: with a name like “Smeagol Fish Battering Song Dubstep Remix”, oh holy shit yes it does. And that’s why my kids only get Smeagol Fish Battering Song Dubstep Remix Grape Jelly! Made with love, 27 essential vitamins, and lard! (Warning: may contain actual fruit)

  2. Huey: you have missed the point of the Smuckers slogan. Because the name is so unappealing, the actual product has to be good enough to overcome it. And since it’s still being sold, despite the name, clearly the product really is all that. It’s a nifty bit of marketing judo.

  3. I am somewhat embarrassed to admit that I do a very good Christopher Walken as Gollum in Pulp Fiction mashup. ‘Five hunnud years … I carried dis ring … up my ass. An now it’s yours … little man.”

  4. ehhhhhhhhhhh… sorry… dubstep and fish battering song are lame. Dubstep is just lame period,

    as for names that say it all: Bob and Ray–Einbinder Flypaper “The brand you’ve gradually grown to trust over the course of three generations”

    Now THAT is a product that speaks volumes. well kinda sort.

  5. anyone know why the hell some little creek out in the wastelands between Mordor and Gondor would be called the “forbidden pool”? Why the penalty for entering said pool would be death? and just how “good” is any character who would enforce such a brutal and arbitrary rule?

    also, if its so damn special, maybe you should put some signs around it saying “do not enter. death” or something. lastly, how bout just putting up a chain link fence or something?

  6. I’m with Greg@8:38 – how did this seemingly innocuous pool be determined “forbidden”? It brings to mind, for me, the question of where these fellas are taking their weekly baths.

    Also, I’m pretty sure Gollum is the kinda guy who pees in swimming pools.

  7. changterhune – Before you hear lies from Chang Terhune himself, we thought we’d tell you the truth: without us, his old action figures, he’d be nowhere. He loved science fiction from way back and began reading it at an early age, but it was through us that he acted it all out. That’s what led to the writing. He watched a lot of science fiction shows like Star Trek, U.F.O, and movies, too. But we were always there to do his bidding. And it’s like they say: you always forget about the little people on your way up. Oh, the 70’s and early 80’s with him were good times! He’d use these blocks and make all the crazy buildings for us to be in his stories. I gotta say the kid’s imagination was pretty damn fertile. Oh, he had friends, but they just weren’t into it like him. He was like the Lance Armstrong of action figures. And of science fiction. At first, when he began writing in the eighth grade, we didn’t mind. He still made time for us. And we knew that when he was holding us in his sweaty little hands and he got that far off look in his eye, he’d come back to burying us in the back yard or - god forbid! – blowing us up with firecrackers. But it was worth it for a part in one of those stories. We loved him for it. He kept us around even when we were minus a leg or two - or even a head. In that mind of his, he found a use for all of us. Then he discovered girls. October, 1986. It was like the end of the world. One day we’re standing in the middle of this building block creation he’d pretended was some marble city on a planet near Alpha Centauri and the next we were stuck in a box in the closet. Not even a “See ya later!” Nope, it was into the closet, then we heard some high-pitched girly-giggles then silence. We didn’t see him for years. We got word about him once in a while. Heard he took up writing, but it was crap like “The Breakfast Club” only with better music. We couldn’t believe it. Not Charlie. What happened to those aliens with heads he’d sculpted out of wax? Spaceships? Those complex plots? All gone. For what? You guessed it: Girls. Emotions. “Serious fiction.” I tell you, it was like hearing Elvis had left the building. During our two decade exile in the closet, we heard other things about him. He went to college. He wrote a lot, but not much he really liked. We knew it even then. It was like he didn’t dare write science fiction. Some of us had lost hope and just lay there. Others kept vigil, hoping for a day we didn’t dare speak about. Then we heard he’d stopped writing in 1996. Did he come to reclaim us? No. He took up music for ten years or so. He took up yoga. Once in a while, he’d visit us in the closet. But it was half-hearted. His mind was elsewhere. Then one day, he really did come back for us. One second we’re in the dark and the next thing we know we’re in a car headed for Massachusetts. Suddenly we got a whole shelf to ourselves out in broad daylight! Then he bought a bunch of others form some planet called Ebay. He’d just sit and stare at us with that old look. But why were we suddenly back in the picture? He had a wife now, who didn’t mind that he played with us. So what had happened? Turns out he’d never forgotten about those stories. He’d been thinking about all of us and the stories he’d made up and then remembered he’d been a writer once. From the shelf we could see him typing away. Before long he’s got a whole novel together! Then he’s working on another one. Word is there are two more in the planning stages! Some short stories, too! It’s good to see him using his imagination again. Its good to know he never abandoned us. He returned to his true love of science fiction. We hear the stories are pretty good. Someday we’ll get one of the cats to score us a copy of the manuscript. Man, it’s good to be out of the damn closet! --- I'm smarter than you I'm harder than you I'm better than you I'm just raw I'm hotter than you More popular than you More clever than you And goshdarn it, people like me I'm smarter than you I'm harder than you I'm better than you I'm just raw I'm hotter than you More popular than you More clever than you And goshdarn it, people like me

    That was funnier than I expected. You get to live another day, Mr. Bond. Thank god it’s only minutes long.

  8. I love dubstep.

    In my opinion, the best dubstep you can “watch” on youtube would be Marquese Scott doing Foster The People’s “Pumped Up Kicks” remixed by Butch Clancy.

    I was introduced to dubstep a couple of years ago by my daughter. It was like somone dumped a fizz bomb in my brain – I was practically bouncing off the ceiling. I’ve done lots of type of dance, but I could not figure out how to move to it. Thanks for the samples!

  10. I never expected to be one of those old people who complained about kids these days and their noise, but dubsteb totally makes me cringe. I’m still in my mid-thirties. :/

    That was simultaneously one of the most terrifying yet fascinating things I have ever seen.

  12. Put me in the “I can’t figure out what all the rage is with dubstep” camp. And I like some pretty crazy abstract/experimental electronica work by artists such as Autechre, Future Sound of London, and Richard Devine. Not that I completely hate dubstep, but overall most of it just annoys me.

  13. You can do “performance art” to it, but from everything I’ve seen you can’t just dance without knowing the song, and the specific remix you are dancing to.

  14. This is a little late, but I’ll toss it out there:

    This video sparked a debate between my girlfriend and myself: she thinks this would this be “nerd step” while I lean towards “dork step.” Now if we can just get a. lee carter out on tour with MC Frontalot, I will be a happy, happy man.

  15. Hi! Bro (who currently serves on the USS Eisenhower) and I are huge fans of the Old Man’s War series. I popped over from FARK to see the video. So much geek win! Thanks for sharing.

  16. Why is there such a backlash to dubstep? Personally I like the sound. I won’t be listening to an entire album of it any time soon, but it is fun to have in the mix.
    Maybe I spent too much time drunk and missed that whole phase where radio beat it to death on the air?

  17. So, I stop by Whatever every day. But I also came to watch this straight from FARK. I already knew about the tweet. Does the hello still apply to me? Because there is an implied lack of hello to the regular readers of Whatever.

    I want a hello.

    My life is that empty.

    (Not really. I have a good life. But I do want that hello!)
