Ron James @ The Chester Playhouse

Last night I saw the Canadian comedian Ron James at the Chester Playhouse. He was doing a benefit for the Playhouse and also working out the kinks in some new material that he'll be recording soon for a TV special. His act was pretty funny, peppered here and there with nods to the locals. But what I enjoyed most about his set were the lengthy alliterative rants that would pop up on occasion.

In case you don't know who Ron James is (perhaps you never tried to sit through and episode of Blackfly, simply because it was filmed in a town near you), the following is one of the few clips of his material that I found on Youtube. He did some of this same material in his set last night at the Playhouse.

The Indie West

I just heard about this clip through the Onion's AV Club, so I thought I'd share it with all y'all. Essentially someone has taken clips from Sergio Leone's Once Upon A Time In The West and matched it to the Arcade Fire track "My Body Is A Cage." They mesh pretty well. I should mention, however, that the clip contains spoilers, so if you were planning on watching the movie (though I doubt you were) you might not want to check this out. Either way, enjoy.
