Remember our friend James Reesor, Tennessee gubernatorial candidate, prolific Web presence and genuine crazy person? Well, it turns out he's made several hundred YouTube videos, most of which have somewhere between 1-50 views. Rich "Lowtax" Kyanka and I spent an afternoon immersed in Reesor's unsettling world, wherein everything is color-filtered and anyone else appearing on camera seems profoundly uncomfortable. To help celebrate our just-instituted Reesor Awareness Week, I've embedded several of his most ... interesting clips. Enjoy!

First of all, let's learn a little more about James Reesor from this media interview, during which Reesor, wearing some sort of Santa suit, spends a couple minutes berating a hapless Jonah Hill-looking reporter about wasting his time, then starts bellowing "olllldddd" like a drunken spell-casting wizard. Irrelevant tagged keywords: "Obama," "girl."

Here, Reesor elaborates on his platform, accompanied by two captive women, a hostile dog, an offscreen grunting child, some psychedelic swirls, and a whooshing sound effect.

This renaissance man also performs songs, like this one about what's really important in life: "Kids, Dogs, God."

Until next time, remember: James Reesor Loves You!

    The Upper Kitchen Cabinet Where Your Roommate Keeps His Food: You’ll 'need the footstool' to reach your roommate’s 'fine selection' of 'stale cereal,' but he'll never notice if 'only a little is missing from each box.' Feel less guilty by reminding yourself that Jeff 'acts weird around your girlfriend,' and always 'asks about her.' What a 'creep.'
