Child Asks Death Metal Bands, “Where Do Babies Come From?”


There’s nothing quite as hilarious as big, bad metal dudes reduced to uncomfortable shuffling and sidelong glances when a young child asks them “where do babies come from.” This video from “Johnny Orlando Jr. Jr.” manages to make both kids and adults feel awkward–as when interviewer Johnny declares at the end, “I think I’m going to need therapy.” Us too. {Daily Swarm] Keep reading »

The Good, The Bad & The WTF: The Venice Film Festival

The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The Venice International Film Festival
While a bunch of celebs were off partying at the MTV VMAs this week, other more serious folk were hunkering down in Venice to celebrate super serious filmmaking.

A New Season Of “Community” Is the Best Birthday Present Ever


Guys, my birthday is September 21 (yes, write that down in your iCals and your Palm Pilots and the margins of your math textbooks), and just in time for my b-day (well, actually the day after), the best show ever, “Community,” is going to return! Hallelujah! More Jeff, Britta, and Senor Chang! More delightfully implausible scenarios involving a lovable cast of misfit college students–and Chevy Chase. And this season it appears they’ve brought on John Goodman, too! Happy Birthday to me! [NBC] Keep reading »

100 Years of Style in 100 Seconds

Are you a bit of an Anglophile? I am. And that’s why I adore this video chronicling a hundred years of East London fashion. Sure, it’s an advert for a shopping mall, but did you see how cute the New Romantics clothes looked? [Laughing Squid] Keep reading »

Animatronic Wizard Of Oz: What’s The Weirdest Thing In Your Town?

I grew up in a small town in New Jersey that was fairly boring. But! The town next to me? Where my high school was? That was a whole other story. Mullica Hill, NJ, happens to house one of the stranger toy stores/”Wizard of Oz” memorials in the world. The Follow The Yellow Brick Road Doll Toy Museum & Boutique is actually not so much a traditional toy store, as a toy hoarding paradise, spread out over a couple of acres. And the owner, when not collecting out-of-production Furbys or plush E.T. dolls, busies himself working on the homemade painted yellow brick road and animatronic collection of “Wizard of Oz” characters he has built and installed around his backyard. Yes, this man has created the “Wizard of Oz” on his property. In wacky DIY style (that’s me in one of his Cowardly Lion cutouts, pictured). And once a year he invites CIVIL WAR RE-ENACTORS to stage a weekend long battle on his property. Yes, amidst fake Wicked Witches of the East and Dorothy, there is an annual Civil War reenactment. It makes perfect sense.

So I want to know: what’s the weirdest thing in your hometown? Keep reading »
