The 25th marks a whole year of Rangoon-y nonsense.
In case you haven’t noticed, we’ve been using it as an excuse to repost a lot of our favorite videos.

One year in (very shortly) and we’re finally talking about things relevant to the 21st century!
Geeks of all stripes are lining up. Disbelief is being suspended. And Hedorah has filed an anti-defamation suit with the ACLU… Pacific Rim is coming and we’ve got the monster and lizard-like-thing perspective on the trailer!
On the 24th, the Isle of Rangoon turns 1 year old!
Sounds like an excuse to repost to me! We’ll start here, with the first Rangoon Riff, “Leave it to Roll-Oh”, a short film about robots and domestic slavery from the 1940’s World’s Fair! Robots, condescension and terror come together on the Isle of Rangoon.

Rangoon Rifflet: Let’s Make a Sandwich!
Your gas company knows a lot about a lot of things. Mostly gas. So of course you can trust them to tell you how to make a sandwich… or can you?
Join Starch and Sunny Jim as the sinister claws of industry stretches the meaning of the words ‘sandwich’, ‘instruction’ and ‘short film’ to the breaking point in: Let’s Make a Sandwich!
What can picnic supplies tell us about cars? More than we care to know! Learn how a Chevrolet made before you were born is like a pile of plates and straws and how child endangerment is like automotive engineering.
All this and a hair-brained scheme from Sunny Jim!
In case you missed it the first time:
Rangoon Rifflets are tender, juicy, bite-sized morsels of film, smothered in our tangy, zesty riffing sauce served up hot and fresh! Listen in as Sunny Jim and Starch give the latest in a long line of Superman reboot trailers a run for its money.

How safe are you? Do you have the safety of mind that comes from soul-crushing bureaucracy? If not, then you, and the Rangoons, are in for some serious schooling. Join the Safety Committee, or else!
What can you say about a woman? Starchibald and Sunny Jim find out the answer is “everything and yet nothing at all” as their fiendish nemesis sends them yet another bizarre short!

Your guess is as good as ours, folks.
