“The Human Centipede” Looks Horrifying

So remember how we told you about Lars von Trier’s “Antichrist,” the movie that made waves on the festival circuit for being totally nasty? Well, that film’s testicle-smashing and clitoris-slicing might seem like a cakewalk in comparison to “The Human Centipede.” Here is the “plot” synopsis for this horror movie:

“Two American girls are on a road trip through Europe. In Germany they end up with a broken car in the woods. They search for help and find an isolated villa. The next day they awake to find themselves trapped in a terrifying make shift basement hospital along with a Japanese man. A German man identifies himself as a retired surgeon specialized in separating Siamese twins. However his three “patients” are not about to be separated, but joined together in an horrific operation. He plans to be the first person to connect people via their gastric system, in doing so bringing to life his sick lifetime fantasy “the human centipede.”

Allow me to use layman’s terms: ass-to-mouth. If you’re crazytown enough to actually want to watch one of the scenes, you can do so at BuzzFeed. I, on the other hand, am going to go wash my eyes out with peroxide. [Shock Till You Drop] Keep reading »

6 Cases Of Hollywood Baby Daddy Drama

Jude Law isn’t buying silver rattles for Samantha Burke’s baby just yet. The unknown model/actress says that the babe is his, but rumor has it Jude doesn’t want to meet the child until he’s seen the results of a paternity test and knows it’s his. Also, maybe he wants to feel like he’s on an episode of “The Jerry Springer Show”? According to a source, “If [Jude] is the father he will meet his obligations to the child. He’s hoping for an early chance to establish that he is genuinely her dad.” The father of three allegedly paid for Burke’s antenatal care as a kind gesture—not as admittance to fatherhood. [Holy Moly]

But Jude’s not the only one in Hollywood questioning his fatherdom. Here’s a look at five other cases. Keep reading »

Inside 5 Celebrity Yard Sales

This past weekend, Teri Hatcher threw a garage sale at her house and raised $20,000 for Los Angeles charities. The sale was invite-only, and browsers paid $50 smackeroos to get in the door, though Teri did treat them to her favorite cupcakes, flown in for the occasion from Coral Gables, Florida. Some items for sale included Coach purses, Disney hotel packages, boots signed by Eva Longoria Parker, never-worn clothes, and toys. Hatcher was joined by guests like Camryn Manheim from “The Practice” and Jane Lynch from “Glee.” Hatcher says the garage sale was her daughter’s idea, but apparently she enjoyed herself. “You get motivated by the giving,” she said. “I can’t wait for the next one!” [People]

Interestingly, celebrities seem to throw yard sales all the time. And thank goodness, since they no doubt have better stuff than busted toasters and some scratched-up records. Keep reading »

What’s The Point Of This Artist’s “Rape Tunnel?”

This is Richard Whitehurst, a Clevelad, OH based artist. His latest project is a 22 foot long tunnel made out of plywood, which leads to a small “project room.” If you choose to go through the tunnel, you should know something. When you get to the room, Whitehurst will be waiting, and he’s going to rape you. Um, what?

According to Whitehurst:

“I’ve constructed a 22 ft tunnel out of plywood that leads into the project room. There is no way in or out of the project room except for this tunnel. As you travel through the tunnel, it gets smaller and smaller, making it so that you have to crawl and put yourself in a submissive position in order to reach the tunnel’s destination. At the end of the tunnel the subject will find me waiting in the project room and I’ll try to the best of my ability to overpower and rape the person who crawls through.”

Okay, so what’s the point of this little art project? Is it rape if the “victim” enters into the tunnel willingly, knowing what lies again? Jessica suggested maybe it has something to do with the nature of consent, but I think he could be making some sort of convoluted point about how much responsibility victims hold for the crimes against them. More than likely, however, he could just be being SHOCKING and CONTROVERSIAL for the sake of attention. He does emphasize, “I want to make it clear that I plan to make the experience as unpleasant as I possibly can to anyone who dares to crawl through the tunnel. I will try to the best of my ability to make them regret their decision.”

Regardless, what is anyone getting out of this little art project? This is an example of something I consistently despise about shock art — the message isn’t clear and isn’t meant for anyone but the academic elite to digest. We — meaning you and I and everyone else not smart enough to “get” the point — are not “supposed” to understand. It’s not meant for us. But I believe real art should be meant for the masses — that’s not to say it should be simplistic, but art should make everyone think, not just those with an Ivy League degree or pretentious sense of self-importance. Here’s to hoping a 300 lb man comes crawling through Whitehurst’s rape tunnel! Good luck, buddy. [Gawker] Keep reading »

Robbers Steal $400K Worth Of Underwear And Pantyhose

Last week in an intricately planned heist, thieves stole about $400,000 worth of underwear, tights, garters, stockings, and shoes from a truck making deliveries to the chain store Next. How? They cut open the sides of the parked vehicle. The Leicestershire Police have no leads, and only know that the robbery occurred between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m. Given the sheer quantity of items stolen, they believe that there was probably more than one thief and that a vehicle was used to move the goods. In an effort to gather information, cops have asked people to “keep a lookout for anyone selling the items described” or to contact them “if you know someone who has acquired items similar to those we described … and you are suspicious of how they obtained them.” Basically, the po po has absolutely no idea who stole this stuff and are totally screwed unless someone walks by sporting it all at once. What we want to know is, why are these people wasting their time robbing pantyhose trucks? With those cop-confounding skills, they could be robbing banks. Perhaps they’re gathering pantyhose disguises for the largest bank robbery ever? [Metro] Keep reading »
