  1. These t-shirts I’m working on are going to sell like hotcakes!

  2. Earthquake, or cat scratching her chin on the side of a webcam?

  3. Now the world will never know the soothing sounds of “Zach Galiafinakis Plays The Hits of Jack Johnson”

  4. I enjoyed the Shyamalan twist at the end where that guy didn’t get buried in a pile of records.

    Though I would have enjoyed it more if that guy got buried in a pile of records.

  5. Oh the humanity!!!

  6. We’ll always remember where we were when we heard that tornado had hit a handgun factory… Two days ago, when people thought of a mudslide, they just thought of getting drunk in an Applebee’s, but now we know it as the thing that destroyed Denver… When the birds first started attacking us, we all thought it was pretty funny and made Hitchcock jokes, but we’re not laughing now because our laughter excites the birds sexually… This devastating wildfire… This horrible flood… This wonderful flood that put out that devastating wildfire… These super-intelligent sharks…

  7. August 23, 2011. the day 8 million of the lamest earthquake stories were born.

    • Ya know, my favorite thing* about this earthquake is that new every time there’s a serious earthquake somewhere else in the world, those of us who actually live** in earthquake country will get to hear from New Yorkers about that one time there was a totally terrifying earthquake felt in New York during which no one died.

      *and by favorite thing I mean least favorite thing.

      **or rather, actually lived and now frequently visit.

    • Interestingly Videogum chose not to report on the earthquake that also happened in Colorado today…

  8. This is particularly harrowing-

    DC Earthquake Devastation:

    (via http://jmckinley.posterous.com/dc-earthquake-devastation)

  9. Guy: “Seriously, baby. When I play the Earth moves.”

    Girl: “Whatever.”

  10. Yay New Orleans!!!

  11. The other day the news said we might get a thunderstorm and then the thunderstorm never came but it did rain last night so I was kind of excited because yay! rain! but I still want my thunderstorm.

  12. Times like this remind me of the frailty of human lives, and of really smooth jams.

  13. If you close your eyes it’s like the opening titles of a Woody Allen disaster film.

  14. Haha, even mother nature hates hippies!

  15. That’s just a good song.

  16. im in dumbo (brooklyn) an literally no one in my office even knew this happened until people checked in on foursquare. i both feel denied this experience and like im sucha hipster that i didnt even FEEL you mainstream disaster.

  17. i can’t wait for his tsunami tape.

  18. So, BNPG: earthquake movies, right?

  19. This made me laugh a lot.

  20. I was in NY when the earthquake happened, and was within seconds of death, when Gwyneth Paltrow cut me off in her SUV.

    Shen raced ahead of me, and was crushed by the chunk of falling concrete that had my name on it.

    #gwynethbecomesgoop

  21. im not going to lie, ive been through a lot of earthquakes so i can see how this east coast earthquake is a big deal, but you’ve never been through an earthquake until you’ve experienced one in a BATHROOM STALL LIKE I DID, good thing i had already finished

  22. Relax, EarthquakeJeremy!

  23. Production Value!
