Whoa guys, how come nobody ever told me about Fancy? I consider myself something of a connoisseur of crappy ’80s bands, and somehow I have totally missed Fancy, which is the brainchild of German songwriter and fabulous man Manfred Alois Perilano. This 1984 video features a high-class chick being driven through a barren wasteland, followed by creepy Mr. Perilano, who sings, “I’m like a cake that wants to be baked/ I’m like a pie made for hungry guys.” So yes, of course I love it.

Carl’s Jr is currently testing a new product called the “Ice Cream Brrrger,” which is, well, exactly what it sounds like: a burger made of ice cream. We’re a little creeped out by the beefy texture of the ice cream and the dripping frosting condiments, but in the grand scheme of freaky fast foods, this ice cream/burger blend is actually pretty innocuous. Click through to check out 11 other fast food creations that are way more disturbing (hot dog pizza, anyone?!)…
The University of Texas at Austin had to make a major apology to its graduates after accidentally producing commencement materials listing its School of Public Affairs as a School of “Pubic” Affairs. Because they felt really bad about it, the school issued an apology via Twitter, noting, “Our deepest apologies to our 2012 graduates for the egregious typo in our program. We are working to distribute corrected programs.” In the meantime, let’s have fun imagining what the School of Pubic Affairs might cover. Sex scandals? STDs? Weird-looking penises? Let’s hope so!

Okay, so I don’t know you if you guys watch “So You Think You Can Dance,” but if you like stories of human triumph, and also hot people, you will love this show. You will also love it for British judge and all around awesome dude Nigel Lythgoe, for whom I have the hots. Why do I love Nigel? Well, he’s a mega-zillionaire producer who worked on “American Idol” and “Pop Idol,” but rather than retiring to a boat off the coast of the Maldives or something, Lythgoe created “So You Think You Can Dance.” Because he loves dance!
And he actually knows what he’s talking about. Keep reading »
Spotted somewhere in London, this amazing mural of Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister in “Game of Thrones,” done in the style of artist Shepard Fairey. Um, if anyone has any more details on this mural and, like, whether there are T-shirts or posters for sale, EMAIL ME. Dink 4 Ever. Speaking of Tyrion, check out an awesome video of his best moments from season two after the jump. [Facebook: Being A Geek] Keep reading »
If you are reading the Internet right now, which you are, you’ve probably heard a bit of hullabaloo surrounding a rap character named Riff Raff. Up until a couple of days ago, I thought Riff Raff was cartoon cat Heathcliff’s pesky nemesis. And I was right! But also wrong, because the Riff Raff people are freaking out about is actually a guy named Jody Christian. Annnnd you might have seen him before, if you are an incurable fan of reality TV.
That’s because Jody Christian was a contestant on “From Gs to Gents,” that weird MTV show where P. Diddy’s butler dude Farnsworth Bentley tried to turn the lives of some hardcore ne’erdowells around. Good luck with that. Keep reading »
