So our twisted friends Paul and Storm have decided to ring in the Xmas bells with a little Randy. Yes, they’re taking their “What If…” cycle of songs to their logical and mad conclusion, in which various and sundry movies get a little musical help from Mr. Newman. It’s “25 Days of Newman.” So far they’re just on Day 5, and they’ve managed to take on Cloverfield, The Godfather…and some movie with Spartans in it, showing above. (Or for finicky feedreaders, here’s all the tracks.)
We know that you’re a busy guy these days. You know, working on the Sin City movies we presume, and The Spirit, and every ten months or so writing a really terrible issue of The Goddamn Batman. And now you want to do a sequel to 300. Well, as has been pointed out on more than one occasion, this is tricky, since, you know, you killed practically every major character and a few thousand minor ones.
Many others have tried to puzzle this out and failed. Gladiator 2 was looked at, as the Variety article mentions, and if I remember correctly they were going to try and do something with the Djimon Hounsou character. I, Too, Am Legend is also mentioned as something they’re like to have but I think the world just rather we actually get an adaptation of the book this time rather than, you know, a turd. Even a sequel to Titanic was discussed with Kathy Bates on another ocean liner–originally popped up on Corona as the one real page in a sea of April Fools jokes.
So look, Frank, we know it’s hard. Therefore we’ve decided to put our Hollywood caps on–the ones that harmlessly disconnect a good 76% of our neurons–and help you out. We humbly present these ideas that we hurriedly scratched down onto a napkin.
Among the highlights:
– one package of ScuncÃ¯ hair bands (MÃ¶tley CrÃ¼e escaped)
– a one gig USB Flash drive
– and two copies of “300” Seriously. Thieving is so NOT Sparta. And Leonidas would so kick you into the pit for stealing

Original “This is Coffee” movie here. Can’t seem to get it embedded worth a damn. The soundtrack is kickin’, though.

Okay, I screwed up. I saw links to this before and went, “What? No.” I’ve gotten wary since everybody sent me the Alanis “My Humps” video and I stupidly watched it and scarred myself for life.
But then Siege sent this over and I just about laughed myself out of my chair. It’s genius. I thus repent and offer it to you now.
