That’s A Nice Looking Bass Dog You Got There

Dogs are very versatile creatures. Not only are they so-called "man's best friend," but they also make a decent stand-in for bass guitars. Witness this blog, "Bass Dog," which replaces the bass guitars being played by well-known musicians with dogs. It's that simple and that wonderful. Here, we have Scott Shriner from Weezer bass doggin'…

I’m Really Not Sure How I Feel About Exploding Actresses

I'm really not sure how I feel about the new Tumblr "Exploding Actresses." On the one hand, isn't it slightly (totally) weird and misogynistic to depict actresses heads being violently blown up?
