A friend, who is more into computer games than myself, recently sent me this video. Since it is 20 minutes long I was hesitant to watch but after being told, “dude, this is hilarious” or something to that effect, I gave it a shot.
Hearing the first words spoken was all I needed. Not only did I watch this first 20 minute video, but I have spent countless hours watching FRANKIEonPCin1080p's videos over the past two weeks. I could listen to British people talk for hours, and I have.
The premise of this game is essentially a very large game of “Cops and Robbers”. Frankie and his pal run around the game dicking around with the natural order of the cop/robber relationship. Along the way there are jokes, laughing and people who recognize his very recognizable voice. He has a fairly large following from his similar, but less mocking, DayZ videos.
If you like video games and laughing, or just like listening to the soothing British voice, give this sitcom length video a shot. If you make it through the end, can you please answer the question, “who the hell are the people that play cops in this game?”

Getting Started! - Arma 3: Altis Life – Ep 1
This week on Things That Make Me Laugh...
I found this heartbreaking documentary over on the JASH Network/buhhhhhhhhhhhhh Youtube channel. JASH network is comprised of Sarah Silverman, Michael Cera, Tim and Eric, and Reggie Watts. buh is the sister channel that puts up great comedy from like minded people (and friends?). You'll see familiar faces like Paul Scheer, Hannibal Buress, Jenny Slate and more.
Nick Thune wasn't a familiar face to me but I had heard his voice on multiple podcasts, most recently on Comedy Bang! Bang! episode 202. Funny episode, especially if you'd like to hear Philip Seymour Hoffman fucking Paul Giamatti.
Back to the reason we are here.
"Disarmed" is the story of a comedian who tries to overcome his life's greatest setback. A broken arm. You might think this is a little silly, but have you ever seen a person with a broken limb preform on the live stage? YEAH, me neither. If you got the 13 minutes and want to laugh, think and cry, give it a watch!
A few of my favorite quotes:
"He was a famous basketball player, he played for the Wizards."
"And maybe someday he'll be able to get back up on that bunk bed and light his fart. It sounds so stupid, but I feel like I can almost smell his fart...And it smells good."
Nick Thune - "Disarmed"
This TTMML isn't “HAHAHAHAH” funny, it's more, “huh that's interesting and this tickles my insides” funny.
Paul F. Tompkins is someone I have grown to find hilarious and respect as a human. He's in my top two comedians who make their way into Comedy Bang Bang episodes with his many characters, from Ice. T to CAKE BOSS (...cake boss). He also has his own podcast, Paul F. Tompcasat, which I haven't given the time of day yet. I'm awful, but there are too many podcasts.
Anywho, I'm not here to tell you all his life's work, but merely to highlight the Youtube interview series, “Speakeasy with Paul F. Tompkins and Guests”. Centered in a speakeasy looking bar, PFT and guest have a specialty drink and talk. It's not solely around the promotion of a project, which I can't stand, but goes into many aspects of their life’s work.
Here are some of my favorite episodes, with one embedded below.

If you've been keeping up with my recent posting, I did a few TTMML posts with Jason Nash Vines. He's not the only one out there making hilarious six second skits. Arguably Will Sasso's Vines are even better. Here is a YouTube compilation video of
all some(?) of his world famous (over 2 million views already) Lemon Videos.
I was just watching the CBB Podcast live Youtube stream and Mike Hanford (@MikeHanford) made an appearance with the snow thrashin' character, Ducky Powell. Turns out he is a member in the group, The Birthday Boys, that made this hilarious parody of Bones Brigade/Any skateboard documentary, titled POOLJUMPERS. Just like last night's TTMML this video involves the Summer and things that are funny. You will most likely enjoy it, if you're even close to being worth your weight in dildos.
The B-boys also have a show coming to IFC sometime in the future, you can watch them announce it here.
