Today is Red Nose Day

Below is text from the Red Nose Day web­site:

Red Nose Day is a cam­paign ded­i­cated to rais­ing money for chil­dren and young peo­ple liv­ing in poverty by sim­ply hav­ing fun and mak­ing peo­ple laugh. The inau­gural Red Nose Day will be held in the US on May 21st, 2015. Peo­ple across the coun­try will come together to have fun and raise funds and aware­ness. The day’s events will cul­mi­nate in a three-hour enter­tain­ment TV spe­cial on NBC fea­tur­ing the country’s favorite come­di­ans, musi­cians and Hol­ly­wood stars—it’s a show not to be missed!

Money raised dur­ing the Red Nose Day cam­paign goes to the Red Nose Day Fund, which then dis­trib­utes grants to char­i­ties that ben­e­fit chil­dren and young peo­ple in the US and some of the poor­est com­mu­ni­ties in the world. This year, we’ve part­nered with twelve amaz­ing non­profit orga­ni­za­tions that work towards Red Nose Day’s goal of keep­ing chil­dren safe, edu­cated and healthy!

How Disney villains die.

I have noticed how Dis­ney vil­lains always had to be respon­si­ble for their own deaths. The good guy can’t straight up kill them. The pre­ferred method has been to have them cause their own fall from some great height. This also con­ve­niently allows them to dis­ap­pear from sight, so the young audi­ence is spared the ugly after image.

I am happy that YouTube user Chief­BrodyRules has put together this super cut of Dis­ney vil­lain death scenes. (mostly deaths, some are just falls.) While not specif­i­cally com­edy, there are some funny moments added in, usu­ally pro­vided by the side­kicks. Some vil­lains are a lit­tle ridicu­lous to begin with, so humor works bet­ter with them. Oth­ers are por­trayed as truly fear­some, so it’s more appro­pri­ate to keep their deaths serious.

Roberto Begnini’s observation of Chaplin’s ass.

Chaplin's Ass

Since today is Char­lie Chaplin’s birth­day, I’ll repost this lit­tle tidbit.

Roberto Beg­nini is the Ital­ian come­dian respon­si­ble for the Acad­emy Award win­ning film “Life is Beau­ti­ful”, and one of my favorite films, “Johnny Stechinno”.

Accord­ing to IMDB, Beg­nini is quoted as saying:

Chap­lin used his ass bet­ter than any other actor.  In all his films, his ass is prac­ti­cally the pro­tag­o­nist.  For a comic, the ass has incred­i­ble importance.”
