Tallyho! It’s Friday and you need something, anything, to help kill the time before the whistle blows and you slide down your dinosaur’s tale and into your leg-powered car for a night at the movies where you’ll eat a massive rack of dino-ribs but not before it tips over your car.

4.Late Night television is back, it seems, and Jimmy Kimmel is at least partially responsible for some of the goodness. Here’s a segment called “Celebrities Read Tweets About Themselves”, which basically sums up the clip.

1. Here’s a short animated film called RUIN. It’s our favorite this week because it’s just so freaking awesome. Got 8 minutes? Grab your soup and sit back. Turn up the sound. Get er on full screen. This one’s going to take you for a little ride.
