This is why I love YouTube

I was floating around on YouTube the other day, mostly stream-of-consciousness searching and viewing. I stumbled upon the scene below from The Karate Kid, arguably one of the finest movies ever made. (Move over Orson.) A tale of triumph in the face of overwhelming hardship. Well, maybe not “overwhelming.” But it’s still an awesome movie.

Of course, I couldn’t stop there. So I included the last scene from Blood Sport and a scene from The Transporter. One could never write a post about awesome fight scenes in movie history without including Van Damage. And Jason Statham? I just threw him in for good measure. Enjoy.

Labrynith, Magic Dance

David Bowie: You remind me of the babe.

Goblins: What babe?

DB: The babe with the power.

Goblins: What power?

DB: The power of voodoo.

Goblins: Voodoo?

DB: You do.

Goblins: Do what?

DB: Remind me of the babe.

The power of the Bowie. What has Labrynith just taught us? That goblins ask a lot of damn questions and David Bowie should skip to the point. This is one of my favorite movies. It still gives me a good dose of the creeps (creepy in a good way though, not creepy-creepy like HBO’s Carnivale. Pause while we mourn the loss of Carnivale).

And I think I will forever be disturbed by David Bowie’s gray leggings and codpiece in this film.

I love when he throws the baby up in the air at the end.

Jenni from Flipping Out

I’m a little weirded out. I’m watching the Flipping Out reunion show and Jenni, Jeff Lewis’ loyal assistant, just rapped. Like on Miss Rap Surpreme except she’s not a rapper from the streets, she a personal assistant to a house flipper–a neurotic, arrogant, crazed house flipper. She just freestyled. I feel like I’ve entered an alternate universe. Here’s a clip from the first season of the show. It’s what got me hooked on Flipping Out.

The Princess Bride

I love this scene from The Princess Bride. The battle of wits. It’s inconceivable! And I know I will say “inconceivable” way too many times in the next few days.

Schoolhouse Rock rocks

This is my favorite Schoolhouse Rock video. The Verb one is a close second.
