Sunday Funnies

A couple humorous diversions: The 50 Greatest Comedy Sketches of All Time This usually short form translates well to the internet. Who doesn't have a few minutes to watch the likes of Monty Python's "Dead Parrot" sketch? And there are plenty more. Many are obvious classics, some you love but haven't seen in a while, and some are more obscure. Rated, compiled and presented by nerve.com and the Independent Film Channel. RiffTrax

The latest venture of Michael J. Nelson, one of the masterminds responsible for Mystery Science Theater 3000. Affordable at just a few bucks each, order one online and sync these audio "RiffTrax" with your favorite, and not so favorite DVDs. It's easy -- just play the DVD and RiffTrax MP3 together and get ready for laughs. This one looks to be funny:

There are so many dumb and weird things that happen in Jurassic Park between the dinosaur scenes, I can't wait to watch and listen and see what these two came up with. And this new one looks good, too:

I liked the first two Spidey movies, but the third far less. Joining Nelson in tearing apart Spider-Man 3 is fellow Minnesotan and writer James Lileks. His Daily Bleat is also well worth checking out.
