This Australian home holds the Guinness World Record for the most Christmas lights on a residential property. The home’s owner took a week off to install the 502,165 lights on his house. What a winter wonderland. [ITN]
If these micro piglets can take time out of their holiday schedule do some exercise, you can certainly motivate to go on a slow-paced, post-Thanksgiving walk around the block with your family (minus the squealing). [Daily Picks And Flicks]
Chatroulette is still a thing. At least, it is for the infamous Chatroulette Guy who made one of the best viral videos the Internet has ever seen when he performed “Call Me Maybe” to unsuspecting folks on the video chat site. Now he’s back with his special take on Miley Cyrus’ fall hit “Wrecking Ball.” He’s got a sledgehammer, zero shame, and seems to have an actual wrecking ball attached to his ceiling for authenticity.
You win the Internet for the second time, sir! Until we meet again … [YouTube]
The gorgeous, ebullient, and crazy-talented Amber Riley won “Dancing With The Stars” last night with her partner Derek Hough. Anyone who watched Amber’s energetic performances knows her win was well deserved, but I especially loved what she had to say to all her female fans who rooted for her this season: Keep reading »
Eat your heart out, Miley Cyrus. Anyone can hump Robin Thicke’s Beetlejuice costume on a stage full of people. But it takes real cojones — and, um, possibly a death wish — to jump down on the tracks of the New York City subway system and twerk on the rails. DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME, KIDDIES. Don’t want to drop too low and hit that third rail. [Gothamist]

One Direction has posted a video of their workout routine, and it’s every bit as adorable and energetic as you’d think. Harry Styles, who says he’s “training to be Thor,” let’s us all in on his Bikram yoga routine. Hot yoga? I’m impressed. These guys are simply too cute. GIF after the jump! [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
What would you be willing to do for a new car? Perhaps your answers range from sensible (take on some part-time work to earn extra dough) to over-the-top (buy scratch tickets until I hit it big!). Crazy dude, Mark Parisi, is taking it a step further. On the TV show “The Doctors,” Parisi announced that he will be “donating” his left testicle for medical research at the sum of $35,000. (Well, at least we know the going rate for a ball. ) Mind you, he is doing this solely so he can afford to buy the Nissan 370z he’s been coveting.
I had no idea it was an option to sell off body parts willy nilly. I really want to put a down payment on an apartment and do a bit of traveling. I wonder how much I could get for my right boob? [Metro UK]
There’s no questioning whether or not everybody loves Jennifer Lawrence, or whether or not she is deserving of this widespread love. She’s beautiful but in a way that seems of this earth, genuinely, unabashedly funny, compassionate, and eschews the starving-starlet mold — essentially, everything the America of 2013 wants out of a female celebrity. But is she America’s Sweetheart, and also who gives a fuck? Julia Roberts, OBVIOUSLY, the O.G. A.S. (no?) who had some thoughts to share regarding whether or not she would extend to Jennifer the invitation to her clurb. Vanity Fair said of Julia’s reaction, “Seriously, this 67-second video should be nominated for its own Oscar for best Live-Action Short. American Studies majors will no doubt be studying it for decades to come.” It’s true. That’s some pretty subtle shade you’ve got there, Julia … [Celebitchy]
First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage, as the nursery rhyme goes. Eh, except when it doesn’t. The road to parenthood is a bumpy one for many, and as a 34-year-old woman with no man and babies on the brain, I’m instantly drawn to any film that depicts the non-traditional avenues some couples and singles take towards their dream of having a child. That’s why I’m psyched to see the upcoming film “Expecting,” starring Radha Mitchell and Michelle Monaghan, about a woman named Andie (Monaghan) who finds herself unexpectedly pregnant after a one-night stand and decides to have the baby and give it to her reproductively challenged BFF Lizzie. And we’re lucky enough to have an exclusive (sorta NSFW) clip from the Jessie McCormack-directed film! In the clip, Andie — who has moved in with Lizzie and her husband for the duration of her pregnancy — is, um, getting to know Lizzie’s brother-in-law (i.e. with her mouth around his penis) when the couple walks in on them mid-job. Awkwardness ensues! Check out the full trailer for “Expecting” — which is available on VOD/iTunes tomorrow, November 26, and opens in select theaters on December 6 — after the jump! Keep reading »
