Things That Make You Go Awwww

I have been sick out of my mind these past couple days, but I'm feeling better. And just in time for a heart warming video that's been floating around.

I have no idea if it's real or not, and doesn't have anything on it, but still, this might be the greatest thing.

National One Hit Wonder Day

Spending most of my time in a non pop genre, it was strange combing through one hit wonder lists and seeing some of the artists mentions. System of a Down, really? I know more than one song by them. The same goes for Stone Sour, Fuel, and other artists as well. Not surprisingly, there was no death metal to be found. So, I took my cue from Wikipedia and tried to find my favorite one hit wonder that
1. Only had one Top 40 hit
2. Did not have other songs chart in genre specific charts
3. Were/are not successful and influential within their genre, ie, have a cult following.
4. Were not an American act with success overseas
5. Were not a non American act with success overseas
6. Were not a supergroup.
It was much more difficult than expected, and the best I came up with is....

Drum roll please....

"Der Kommissar" by After the Fire! The 80's had the best one hit wonders. 

What's your favorite?

I'm One Day Late

But the feeling is still the same. Arrrr, weigh anchor and hoist the mizzen!

Yo ho ho, and a bottle of rum.

This Brings Me Copious Amounts of Joy

After three years of off and on searching throughout the internet, I have finally found a audio version of The Mysterious Axeman's Jazz. 

As the story goes, towards the beginning of the twentieth century, a serial killer was more or less rampaging through the streets of New Orleans, offing his victims with an axe. Mysteries at the Museum did a nice little segment on it a few months ago:

I have never been able to find a full audio version until now. Many thanks to Ragtimer95!!

Closing In On That Time of Year

Countdown to Halloween is preparing for the onslaught, as is Punch & Judy. This year the badges are dipping into nostalgia and bringing back the Monster Cereal mascots. I got dibbs on Count Chocula!

Essentially A Trailer For Every Modern Horror Movie

There are some I feel that are missing, but that doesn't lessen the video any. Beautifully edited.
