The Late Movies: Surreal Fun with Mary-Kate and Ashley

Original image

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are all grown up now, and they seem to have shed most of their little-kid image (by engaging in lots of tabloid fodder and taking pseudo-shocking roles in various indie films), but there remains an absolutely staggering amount of childhood-era MK&A material out there, when their many videos were crazy popular among the under-12 girl set. So what to do with it all? If you're like these video-makers, the answer it obvious: make freaky, trippy Youtube videos with them. So everyone lick a hallucinogenic toad and let's get started!

Boingboing recently alerted me to this amazing find, a slowed-down version of the Olsen Twins' "Pizza Song." We've all learned that slowed-down Justin Beiber becomes Sigur Ros. This video demonstrates that slowed-down Olsen Twins is just plain nightmarish.

It's an excerpt from this ten-minute mind-bender, itself an excerpt from You're Invited to Mary-Kate and Ashley's Sleepover Party!

Many of you may be familiar with Mr. Plinkett and his amazing series of hour-long, profanity-filled reviews of Star Wars movies. But do you know how Mr. Plinkett got his name? It happens in this suuuuper freaky video he made before he started reviewing movies, in which an insane man comes to believe he's trapped inside Mary-Kate and Ashley movies. Warning: some profanity!

Everything is Terrible made a video starring the Olsen Twins not long ago -- all about STRESS!

EIT HOLIDAY SPECIAL PART 2: STRESS! from Everything Is Terrible! on Vimeo.

And let's be honest -- you don't have to mash up or slow down Olsen Twins videos to make them surreal. They just are.

They're trying to scare me, and it's working.

Called The Hamilton Cookbook: Cooking, Eating, and Entertaining in Hamilton’s World, the recipe collection by author Laura Kumin “takes you into Hamilton’s home and to his table, with historical information, recipes, and tips on how you can prepare food and serve the food that our founding fathers enjoyed in their day,” according to the Amazon description. It also recounts Hamilton’s favorite dishes, how he enjoyed them, and which ingredients were used.

Recipes included are cauliflower florets two ways, fried sausages and apples, gingerbread cake, and apple pie. (Cue the "young, scrappy, and hungry" references.) The cookbook’s official release is on November 21—but until then, you can stave off your appetite for all things Hamilton-related by downloading the musical’s new app.
