Watch A Captain America Movie From 1944 For Free

Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be in theaters on Friday, April 4. But if you want you can watch a Captain America movie from 1944 for free, thanks to the good folks at the Internet Archive.

Captain America - 1944 Serial

The film, an old black and white serial, runs 25 minutes and 16 seconds and is titled Captain America, Chapter 1 (1944). It stars Dick Purcell as Captain America, aka Grant Gardner (more on this in a moment), Lorna Gray as Gail Richards, Lionel Atwill as Doctor Maldor (think he might be a bad guy with that name? He also wears a monocle), along with Charles Trowbridge and Russell Hicks. The description from IMDB is as follows: Read more »

It takes a real man to take personal training orders from a baby. Thank goodness Michael Stansbury was up to the task.

Well said! (Credit to Lesley Kennedy from Today.com for those words.) Watch the video here.

Let’s Get More Excited About Space Travel

Here’s an idea. Instead of endless reports about Justin Bieber and other mindless crap, let’s get more excited about space travel.

Captain Video And His Video Rangers

(This isn’t a picture of real space travel. It’s Captain Video and His Video Rangers. Old TV show.)

Live streaming video by Ustream

(By the way, the latest Bieber news, as of this writing, is that Usher flew to be by Justin’s side and offer emotional support or something. In case you’re curious. Who says this isn’t the DaddyTips age of having your cake and eating it too?)

On January 23, 2014, three days ago, NASA launched a Next-Generation Relay Satellite. No, not Star Trek: The Next Generation. Something real. The TDRS-L Satellite. Launched by NASA. Frickin’ NASA! And they broadcast the launch live on Ustream! And I didn’t even know! (The video is archived and embedded above. I was wrong. The video embedded above appears to be NASA’s live Ustream channel. Sorry. Here is a link to the video of the launch.)

Nobody cares. Why doesn’t anyone care? We should really care about this a lot more than we do.

Cookie Monster in ‘Lord Of The Crumbs’

Part 2 of The Hobbit movie (or, as I call it, “there and back again and again and again”) hits theaters soon. This Sesame Street ‘Lord of the Rings’ parody starring Cookie Monster as Gobble in ‘Lord of the Crumbs’ is much shorter and probably better. Which one takes more liberties with Tolkein’s source material is debatable.

Tom Hiddleston teaches Cookie Monster about Delayed Gratification

Tom Hiddleston, aka Loki Laufeyson from Thor and The Avengers, made a video for PBS in which he, well, teaches Cookie Monster about the concept of delayed gratification. Really.

Tom Hiddleston teaches Cookie Monster about delayed gratification.

Yes, this is what happens in the video.

It’s not clear that this is a Sesame Street thing since it’s from the PBS YouTube channel. There’s also this weird camera angle switching; every time they do it, the clip changes from color to black and white. Not the typical Sesame Street style. That said, it’s a video of  Tom Hiddleston discussing the concept of self-control with Cookie Monster, and it’s only two minutes long. You’ve wasted more time than that on videos that are far less worthy. Check it out, right here, right now. You are burdened with glorious purpose.

Video: Baton Fire at High School Football Game

Via Deadspin, video of a fire at a high school football game that was caused by flaming batons.

The game was not in Baton Rogue. Ba-dum-bum.

Best part is the commentary by whoever shot the video. “That’s a fire!” “Gatorade! Gatorade!” Also, it looks like the cheerleaders/dancers never stop doing their thing. Because it’s only a fire.

Youth sports.  Never a dull moment.
