CBS’s new fall show “Elementary” has not even premiered yet, but already nerds everywhere are boycotting it. Why would people write off this modern retelling of the Sherlock Holmes story starring Lucy Liu and Jonny Lee Miller so soon?
There are a bunch of (not very good) reasons. Keep reading »
Nevermind that I’ve never heard any of the songs in this clip because I’m approximately 100 years old, all you need to know is the Snuggie Kid is back, and he is better than ever. The be-Snuggied preteen — who stole our hearts with his pitch perfect rendition of Beyonce’s “Countdown” video — returns to offer his stellar dance moves for the VMA’s “Best Choreography In A Video” award. Is that a thing? Cool, dude. [YouTube]
“I wanted to become an author for as long as I can remember. I wrote stories and plays and poems all the time I was growing up. I’ve just always felt the urge to write. It’s not something I can stop doing. I just feel wired to want to create stories. As the career path of editor opened up for me, the opportunity of being an author started to recede a bit, making me panic. I just resolved to somehow make the time. I gave up goals like learning tennis or a second language or ever having a killer body in order to make the time to write … The muse for my first published book was the TV show “Law and Order.” Re-runs of the series used to be on every night at 11 and that’s when I wrote—after my kids and husband were in bed. The sound helped keep me from passing out from sheer fatigue, and since I’d seen every episode a zillion times, it wasn’t a distraction. I probably should have dedicated that book to Assistant District Attorney Jack McCoy.”

We’ve been fascinated with the idea of anal and butt tattoos ever since we heard about Maria Louise Del Rosario, a woman who was videotaped receiving a tattoo in her anal cavity a couple of weeks back. Rosario claimed the process was fairly pleasurable, and while hers was the first we’d ever heard of, apparently it’s a somewhat common practice in tattoo circles. That’s why we wanted to find more examples of anal and butt tattoos, to try and understand what people see in ‘em. We’ve found 17 more butt and anal tattoos for your somewhat NSFW viewing pleasure.
Remember the weird social experiment that was Chatroulette? It’s mostly populated with dudes who want to show their wangs to strangers, which is why we’re way more into the animal version of Chatroulette, appropriately titled Catroulette. Catroulette shows you tons of live video feeds of cats doing exactly what cats do — scratching themselves, grooming themselves, looking bored. But the best part? Every cat on Catroulette is up for adoption! Most of these cats seem to live in Germany or something (so international!). But even if you can’t adopt, it’s a great timewaster. So many adorable buddies! [Catroulette]
I love America. I love America for a number of reasons, not the least of which is our unheralded success in creating new and awesome snack innovations, or snackovations. The latest genius idea? Ice cream nachos. Sure, it sort of sounds disgusting when you say it, but we’re talking about creamy ice cream served with pieces of nacho-sized cone and toppings. What will they think of next? Perhaps an ice cream chalupa? Or an ice cream hot dog, made from poundcake and fudge? Baskin Robbins, get at me. [Foodbeast]
