Ha'ina 'ia mai ana ka puana (Video Post Friday)

Today we're all over the place, but there is one common thread - we were lazy and are mostly just posting videos. It's two days in a row for the Not-Safe-for-Work QOTD postings. Well, only one of the videos below is not-safe-for-work, but it's so good that your boss will likely promote you if you watch it at work.

The aforementioned NSFW clip, a trailer for the upcoming Black Dynamite movie. We'll give you a second to digest its excellence:

Oh, look. It's a question from the audience. Question: Will the entire QOTD bureau be seeing this movie on opening night? Answer: Yes--we're actually typing this from a line in front of a movie theater waiting for its release. In fact, we might not have been this excited for a movie since Snakes on a Plane. And you all remember how well that movie turned out. Just as a reminder, a little Cobra Starship for your Friday:

We're getting a second Pink Panther movie where Steve Martin is an extremely pale imitation of Peter Sellers, but we're not getting a second Sam Jackson-fights-creatures-on-a-mode-of-transport movie? What is Hollywood thinking?
Our favorite movie clip of the week comes from where a guy got his female friend to describe the plot of the original Star Wars trilogy (before George Lucas went insane) and then he animated her description. It's very funny:

Star Wars: Retold (by someone who hasn't seen it) from Joe Nicolosi on Vimeo.

Finally, for those people suffering through some winter cold, a little island gem from Warren Zevon (patron saint of QOTD), and his song "Hula Hula Boys", today's quote:

Yesterday she went to see
The Polynesian band
But she came home with her hair all wet
And her clothes all filled with sand
I didn't have to come to Maui
To be treated like a jerk
How do you think I feel
When I see the bellboys smirk?
And I can hear their ukuleles playing
Down by the sea
She's gone with the hula hula boys
She don't care about me
They're singing,
Ha'ina 'ia mai ana ka puana
(translation: "sing the chorus", or "get to the point")

And now, a clip of Warren singing this song live in 1990 (sound only - unrelated pictures...):
