‘Far Alamo’ is the epic battle they never taught you in school (video)
Alien invaders tried to mess with the gringos at the Alamo in 1836, but they didn’t count on brave defenders Laurence Harvey, John Wayne, Richard Widmark, Charles Bronson, Yul Brynner, James Coburn, Clint Eastwood, Henry Fonda, Terence Hill, Steve McQueen, Gian Maria Volonte, Lee Van Cleef, and Eli Wallach. Far Alamo documents the epic battle they never taught you in school.

Ultimate ‘Mexican Standoff’ movie mashup has no Mexicans (videos)
“A Mexican standoff,” according to Wikipedia, “is a confrontation among two or more parties in which no participant can proceed or retreat without being exposed to danger.” ¡Orale! Let’s get some of those cinema standoff scenes and mash them up! [POCHO only presents this video after receiving assurances from responsible parties that “no actual Mexicans were harmed in the making of this mashup.” Your mileage may vary.]
The mashup highlights the “trio scene” from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, a classic example of film editing. The 1966 Western was directed by Sergio Leone, and starred Clint Eastwood before he lost his mind, Lee Van Cleef, and Eli Wallach. Check the scene out here:

Juanita Ca$h: ‘Fuego del Amor (Ring of Fire)’ (audio)
“What would it sound like if Johnny Cash had an illegitimate daughter raised in Juarez?” asks the Juanita Ca$h Facebook page. “Juanita Ca$h has come to take her revenge on her father’s music: Blasphemous, boisterous, psychedelic cumbia versions of her daddy’s classic songs.”
Cookie Monster vs Mazzy Star: ‘Fade Into You’ (3 music videos)
In 2009, according to Dangerous Minds, weirdo singer Catman Cohen recorded an idiosyncratic version of Mazzy Star’s 1993 Fade Into You. Later that same year, according to those very same minds, the Internets mashed up Cohen’s vocal with Cookie Monster Sesame Street footage.
Contrast and compare with this video of the original version, sung here live on Conan, by our girlfriend, the most distinctive voice in pop music, the East Los Angel, to know her is to love her, ladies and gentlemen, give it up for the amazing star of Mazzy Star, Hope Sandoval:

In the Pacific NW, these are not the droids you’re looking for (toons)
Artist Scott Erickson re-imagines Star Wars iconography in the style of the natives of the Pacific Northwest:
ALLIANCE=REBELLION : ALKI TUM TUM
We each live out our lives, as an amalgam of intertwined narratives, rooted both in chance and intention, influenced heavily by our environment. The Northwest’s distinctive sense of place, stems significantly from the visual gifts of the Indigenous Tribes of the Pacific Northwest Coast. Juxtaposed against a modernizing landscape, their sacred icons are pervasive as rain, depicting narratives as much from long ago, as they are from right here and now.

Nothing in this video is original, except the video: ‘Not Mine’

Not Mine is my graduate project in Graphic Design at the HIT college in Israel. My thesis is that nothing is original, therefore, none of the materials presented in the project were made by me. All of the 469 photos used in this video were taken out of Google’s image bank.
