There are a couple of ways to piss off Ripley, the heroine from the Alien franchise—one of those is to be an alien xenomorph with acid for blood who murders all her crew, another is to do a crappy Ableton mix of Three 6 Mafia’s Ass and Titties—which is what happens here, and Ripley is not happy AT ALL.
Donald Trump may be horrifying certain people with his lurch towards the White House but in this parody trailer he actually stars in some classic horror movies.

For his latest video essay he looks at how the complex and involved subjects of science and mathematics were cleverly interwoven with humor in Matt Groening and David X. Cohen’s sci-fi animation Futurama.
Taken from Louis CK’s 2016 ‘Live at the Comedy Store’ this standup routine shows Louis talking about his kids growing up. One of his daughters is going to be 18-years-old soon while the other is 9.
