It's not the destination -- it's the journey.
This second video -- a tribute to Carly Rae Jepsen -- might be even tougher to stomach, but it's also infinitely more crazy, particularly at 2:22. Props to her for being a good sport.

Sean Dunne, the creative genius behind short documentary films The Archive, American Juggalo, and The Bowler, is putting the finishing touches on his first feature film, Oxyana, about a small coal mining town in West Virginia that has been completely overtaken by Oxycontin. According to Dunne, "It's really f**king eye opening":
Oceana, West Virginia, sits squarely in one of God's blind spots. It's one of the old coal mining communities that feeds the nations insatiable appetite for energy. Set in the middle of unbelievable natural beauty, a beauty that in the last number of years, has been marred by the Appalachian scourge of Oxycontin. Life persists, but it's a living that few Americans could explain or even believe; closer in kind to the world of a medieval plague. Men and women die epidemically. The addicts— who are the vast majority, and all nice enough people— sell, scramble, and steal in an economy of nigh-endtimes desperation. Worn down and out by the pills, the mines, or the indignity of both, everyone is easily twice their own age, and unable to imagine an existence outside of coal, subsidies, and prescription narcotics. Things could hardly get darker— or more fucked and implausible— than in this place called Oceana.
Teaching can be quite the thankless job, especially when faced with a 6-year-old bully day in and day out.
But one San Antonio, TX, kindergarten teacher turned her revenge fantasy into reality in May, when she had her class of 24 line up and take turns hitting the class bully, raining repeated blows to Aidan Neely's head, face, and back.
"The teacher told him not to tell us," Aidan's mom said.
When news of the creative discipline finally reached the principal -- and school parents -- last week, the teacher was fired. Now Aidan's mom is on a mission to make sure she's never again allowed in a classroom.
Director Martin Guigui has begun shooting a hybrid prequel/sequel to Martin Scorsese's boxing masterpiece Raging Bull. Curiously, Scorsese recently lamented, "I really don't know what Raging Bull II would be."
William Forsythe will play the older Jake LaMotta, and Mojean Aria will portray him in scenes that take place before the original film. (Robert De Niro won an Oscar for his 1980 turn as LaMotta.) Joe Mantegna, Tom Sizemore, Penelope Ann Miller, Natasha Henstridge, Alicia Witt, Ray Wise, Harry Hamlin, Bill Bellamy, and James Russo also will star.
No word on a release date.
