Japan India? Is that a twinkle in your eye or are you just $15,000 poorer due to cosmetic contacts?
"I know normally Kickstarter is for bad web series ideas and ugly art projects. Like a horse made out of wires or something." This might not work, but at least it made me laugh.
Especially at a podium with a microphone. I mean seriously. Don't even let your arm do that for a second. Not even one second.
Thank to our friends at EaterDC for pointing us to this two-page contract that all diners must sign when making reservations at DC's new restaurant, Rogue 24. The contract includes cell phone and camera bans as well as an insanely steep late cancellation fee. What do you guys think? Fair? Ridiculous?
Today is the 25th Anniversary of David Cronenberg's The Fly. Or as it is sometimes known, that awesome movie where Jeff Goldblum turns himself into a fly. Here are 10 things you may not know about it.
Pretty much the cutest thing ever. Apparently this river otter stops by every afternoon to roughhouse with his buddy.
Glenn: "Christian Bale did it for movies, and he did it for this." Charlie: "Did Bale ever get super fat?"
Thank god you let me know! I'm sure if I didn't see this, there was no way I'd have remembered to not go see this movie.
Warning: Never tell your family to stay out of your room. Especially when you won't be able to check on them for a month.
All of your favorite A-listers in their awkward acting infancy.
This is great. Rowan and Martin were comic geniuses and they didn't let their genius stop when their show wasn't filming. This is their thank you letter to John Wayne for appearing on the show.
I'm no doctor, but I probably wouldn't watch these if I had epilepsy. It's like the title sequence to Enter The Void only hysterical.
We know he was kind of an abusive father so... But when your children's book adds hints of domestic violence to an existing story, maybe something's gone wrong. But you know just maybe.
In fairness, whenever Bobby V talks I wish someone would hit me in the face. So silver lining?
They're everywhere! Bullwinkle, why would you turn on us like this?
Hey, check it - Amanda Palmer and Reggie Watts sang this little ditty about how much they love the Doctor. Because they are nerds. But also because they are awesome. This is an outtake from the Doctor Who Specials that BBC America are releasing in anticipation of the new episodes that air in a couple of weeks. (The next special airs on BBC America this Saturday, August 20th, at 9/8c.)
I didn't know half of these weren't scripted. "Warriors, come out to play"? That guy deserved a bonus,
If I ever find myself in Australia, I know where I'll be staying. I mean they have a TV room! And apparently explosions!
One of our richest people (he seems to bounce between the numbers one and two slots) has come out in favor of tax increases on the wealthy. Now can we start doing that? I mean he said it was okay.
Disturbing. In order to better reconstruct his horrific shooting spree, Oslo authorities returned Anders Breivik to Utoya Island. A police spokesman later said Breivik showed no remorse as he detailed his cold-blooded execution of 69 people, mostly teenagers.
Where else can you find a complete list of not only every ballpark The Beatles played, but also how the first home game after a Beatles concert went? Very cool stuff...
You usually amuse me oh airline of Richard Branson. But not today. Not today.
