Right now I'm looking for any working copy of Misery Brothers (2005)

If you're willing to spend money, for some reason there are about a dozen copies available from Australian ebay sellers, all for <$10 (albeit the "Y2K" version, which seems to be a few minutes shorter, but the bits they cut out are probably all the uncensored clips that people have actually bothered to upload on the internet). There's also this insane page.

This one is a bit of a reverse white whale, in a sense, where I already know the name of the thing I'm looking for, but have no clue how to find out more about it.

There's a band I rather like called Big Sur (not the one from Lansing, Michigan, but an older one from the UK, not "The Big Sur", just "Big Sur")...
Someone else has already posted some links but here are some more that might be helpful:
Their old official site: obviously long gone, but more complete copies from 2001, 2006
It's still kind of painful to navigate those, but check out biography, another biography, some songs you might not have, their other early releases
A nice old-fashioned fan site that's still online: http://www.angelfire.com/band/bigsur/
Their myspace site: https://myspace.com/bigsurband (and the archived version, which mentions they split in mid-2006 and has other handy stuff)

I once saw a clip on TV about something called Skullbone. It is apparently a form of barekunckle boxing where you’re only allowed to hit above the shoulders. I might have dreamt it.

I doubt this is what you're looking for, but there are commonly rules along the lines of "you can only hit with your palms above the shoulders" to push people around and stuff for some styles, so maybe your brain twisted it a bit? No idea about the Skullbone stuff though lol

E: there is a weird boxing club called "Skullbonia" (or the kingdom of skullbonia or whatever), based in Skullbone, TN... They do have some weird websites with fake histories of the town/fightclub, so who knows

EW: VVV dang, he beat me to editing

The History of Skullbonia

In the early, and throughout, the 1800’s bare knuckle boxing matches were common place throughout the United States. 

But one very special place was born, whose own name stemmed from this manly and noble art of pugilism, and it is rightfully called Skullbonia.  

Skullbonia is the only place on the planet named after this unique style of gloveless boxing during this time. Originally known as "fist and skullbone" fighting, it was later shortened to "fist and skull.” 

The champions of fistiana from Skullbonia were rarely defeated individually, and never as a team, and thus grew in fame throughout the area. 

Because of its popularity, Skullbonia was home to national championship bouts until some nosey politician in Washington D.C. was finally able to get the sport declared illegal.

Don't be so gloomy. After all it's not that awful. Like the fella says, in Italy for thirty years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance.

I can help. Go to San Diego and visit Santanas, Robertos, or Albertos (specifically in the town of El Cajon). You will find God there.

Okay completely random memory that just popped up:

Crown Casino Melbourne Australia used to have a gaming bar called Bar Code and the cinemas (Villiage?) used to run the occasional big screen ad for it.

I'm looking for the mid to late 90s Bar Code ad that had someone on a turntable make a noise that went 'bow-bwwwwwoooooow, bow-bwwwwwooooow' for all of two seconds. I just want to hear that part again for memories sake.

Ok, this is obscure. The screen id/trailer for a Hong Kong based cinema advertising company of the 70's or 80's, all I can tell you was it was animated, mostly orange and had seagulls/some sort of large white bird in it.

Could this have been Panasia? They did have a series of bird logos, but more like a fancy phoenix rather than a flock of seagulls

E: There was a cinema company literally called "Orange Sky" (now merged with Golden Harvest), so there's the direction to go in...

I can find plenty of animated Golden Harvest logos featuring amber waves of grain, but it's hard to find ones for Orange Sky pre-merger... Here's a couple supercuts to get you started:

The weird thing is that they were featured as background music in the show Clone High at one point. It's utterly maddening to me that this band seemingly disappeared off the face of the planet, and the most enduring legacy they've left is a few bars of background music on a handful of episodes of a one-season cult TV show. I have literally never met a single person who recognizes this band when I talk about them. Googling them displays a BUNCH of false positives, because apparently "Big Sur" is a popular band name. Mostly I want to know whether they ever released any further albums, because I would buy the poo poo out of them.

Oh man, this reminds me of one:

I can't remember if it was in an ep or a promo, but there was a cartoon around the Clone High era that had a segment where one character was like, "duh nuh nuh nuh nuh nuh. Duh uh nuh nuh nuh nuh. Duh uh nuh nuh nuh nuh," and then another says, "SHUT UP." The first character then makes like a "beooow," guitar noise.

I had always thought this was from Clone High, and so did my middle brother. My brothers and I have repeated this segment to each other s million times in the last 15ish years. I re-watched the show a while back to find the ep it's from and it's not there. Where the gently caress did this come from?

i saw an america cartoon in the 1990s where a mickey mouse like character is fighting on a ship against someone, both using swords, and the swords turn blue from the impact. that vhs was my jam as a kid!

That could be a Felix the Cat cartoon, "The Goose that Laid the Golden Egg", from 1936. Felix has a swordfight against a pirate captain on his ship, and at one point the swords heat up to white-hot and fuse together.

ABS THUNDERSKULL.

element: thunderbolts.

steed: a thunderbolt.

slogan/motto: "gonna clap them cheeks like a Thunderskull."


there was an Awful Link of the Day to a site called something along the lines of "MARTIAN COCK-BOXING" featuring incredibly detailed B&W drawings of Warhammer 40K lookin dudes in crazy armor with high heels and (i remember this detail specifically) prominent codpieces joined by a thin chain. Basically it was a site where a dude would upload is writings/drawings about the future where people fought and hosed through weird combat rituals and everything was powered by jizz.

I searched through the ALOD archives, to no avail.

I'm trying to find Laments puzzle box.

I know they custom make them in Florida somewhere, but they're like 400 bucks with questionable payment/delivery options.

I want the one that works, not just a wooden cube with paint on it.

I scoured shops when I was in downtown LA. Couldn't find one. All they had were stupid Oscar statues.

i wouldn't call it a white whale but lately i've been trying to find this creepypasta story about some hugely hungry lady who got stuck in an elevator with her daughter while going to see a doctor and then ate the daughter because she was hungry. it was told from the perspective of a paramedic or some guy who worked at the hospital or something? anyway it was an obvious bullshit story to anyone with a lick of logic but made your hair stand on end anyway
