Amoeblogger Brad Schelden was absolutely right Memorial Day when he predicted that R. Kelly's new album would likely be a hot seller at Amoeba Music upon its release the following day. Go back and check it if you missed this informative AMOEBLOG, which gave a really good history of the ever-popular & controversial R&B star plus a link to his video "Careful" with Sparkle. Equally, if not much more so to some, entertaining is the Dave Chappelle video "R.Kelly: I'm Gonna P*** On You" included on the about to be released DVD The Best of Chappelle's Show (Uncensored): Top 25 Sketches (Comedy Central/Paramount). Available in stores on Tuesday, June 5th, the other 24 sketches include (among others) the sidesplittingly funny 'A Night With Wayne Brady' and 'The Ni**ar Family' sketches, plus the played-to-death so that it's well-past-expiration-date funny  'Charlie Murphy's True Hollywood Stories: Rick James." While I want to own this new DVD, truth is that I have already seen all of these skits a zillion times so right now I prefer to go back and re-watch that surprsingly engaging, revealing James Lipton interview with Chappelle on Bravo's Inside the Actor's Studio.


One of the best videos to surface in the past week or so online is the fun, fast-paced video mashup "Shatner Woo Remix" -- posted by YouTube user "smudgeorama," who took a recent Conan O'Brian interview segment with William Shatner and chopped up and mixed interview portions with clips from a video of renaissance man Shatner driving a car at 160 MPH and remixed it with a cool electronic track into a mind-dazzling 2 and quarter minute video.


And finally, the video of a live Amoeba instore that leaves you fiending for more...way more...is the teasingly all-too-short ten second funky-funky clip of WARP disco-punkers !!! (often pronounced as chk chk chk) from a free instore performance they did at Amoeba Hollywood about a month ago (4/26/07).
