The smartest dog in the world

Not that we'll ever show it at Hell (it's too slow), but my god he's funny.

Go check out his channel!

That's a pretty big IF


If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;

If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

--Rudyard Kipling

Maya the Bee gets a movie

Maya the bee? Now that takes me back.

Does anybody remember when Maya the Bee aired on Nickelodeon?

A sock full of Johnny Quest

Oh, that's some fat brass!

The expression "A sock full of Johnny Quest" is from this comic, specifically a reference to Yoko Kanno's soundtrack for "Cowboy BeBop". I thought it might be fun to share that source material.


And, while we're here, a little segment of a documentary about "Johnny Quest", focusing on the music and the guy who gave it to us. He should have had a career outside of cartoons, you say? But then, how would you know him?

I dunno about you, but I already like the music. Go look at some stills from the ballet. It looks fantastic!

Leonard Nimoy vs. The MagnaVision (1981)

If only we listened...

Yeah I'm a little late on this, but it just came to my mind right now and I thought I'd give my last word on him.

RIP "Mr. Spock"
