The Thylacine (via Environmental Graffiti)

Hurricane Danny (McBride)
: Spawned over the low intimation factor of the name "Danny" for a tropical storm/hurricane, Brian created a chuckle worthy photoshop which leads me to believe along with terriantial rain and powerful gusts of wind, Hurricane Danny would be full of Kenny Powers one liners. (Via The Total Package)

It's like your eating a delicious type dirt and worms
: Hey weird kid at recess who would eat dirt and worms out of a flower pot for his lunch, it's now acceptable. Well, only kind of as this recipe replaces the dirt with chocolate ice cream and crushed up brownies and the worms with gummi worms. (via Gizmodo)

Photos of Tarpans, Quaggas, and Javian Tigers (oh my!)
: Not to get super preachy but one thing we need to do as species, make sure all the animals on the endangered species list don't go the way of all the animals shown here because how much more awesome would this world be with the addition of the Thylacine? A lot more awesome I bet! (via Environmental Graffiti)

Taken By Trees - My Boys: Indie Rock's version of the No Scrubs/No Pigeons-gate of 1998, as Victoria Bergsman, formely of the Concretes and foreverly of Peter Bjorn & John's Young Folks covers Animal Collective's My Girls, but with one gender role reversing trick.. You guessed it - she changed the word girls with boys. (via Stereogum)

Puppies dressed up as Cats? Adorable Overload!: Something that you wouldn't see Leno do on The Tonight Show, Conan dressing up puppies as a kittens. Will Leno respond with kittens dressed us a puppies when his 10 pm show debuts soon? What will Letterman do? Fan of adorable animals needs to know. (via Best Week Ever)

The Muppets Got Next: Sorry, WNBA's Atlanta Dream but Sesame Street Live is scheduled for the Phillips Arena when the WNBA's playoffs are supposed to be in full swing for the Dream on Sept. 17-20. As Fozzy Bear once said "Wacka Wacka." (via Deadspin)

Dude Unicorn Jams Daves Too Many

No plans to listen to Dude Jams or their album, Too Many Daves because it'd spoil this amazing bond that I currently have with their unicorn, rainbows, starry night, and dildo album art.

Neil Schwiber is an Inglorious Basterd

Saw Inglorious Basterds, and was caught off guard that Samm Levine of Freaks and Geeks fame was one of the said Basterds. Now, IMDB says that Levine played PFC Gerold Hirschberg but I'd like to believe that after graduting from McKinley in say 1985, Neal Schweiber waited a couple years, built a time machine (with the help of Coach Fredricks who knew a thing or two about time travel), and went back to the 40s and decided to kill some Nazis. I'd also like to believe Jason Segal's character on How I Met Your Mother, Marshall is just an older Nick Andopolis, all of Seth Rogen's characters are an older Ken, and Martin Starr is infact Bill Haverchuck.

I-3D Video Glasses are proof positive that flying cars are coming sooner rather than later

(via Kanye West)
"Displaying images at 920,000 pixels per LCD at an aspect ratio of 4:3, the head-mounted display is capable of being hooked up to any standard video source, off which it displays stereoscopic virtual images on a screen sized 80 x 69 inches. Priced at $399, the head-mounted display weighs 2.4 ounces, has stereo ear bud type speakers and delivers a wide 35° diagonal viewing angle. Featuring USB charger cable, remote control and adjustable brightness and contrast, the i-3D Video Glasses derive power from a 1,000mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery that lasts for about 3.5 hours on a single charge."

I don't know about you but the resemblance bettween Levar Burton's visor from Star Trek: The Next Generation and these 3D glasses are quite uncanny.

Red Tuxedo Gang kills Man! Adorable Dog not involved.

"A 22-year-old man died today after a vicious beating last week outside a Back Bay nightclub allegedly at the hands of 12 men in matching tuxedos.

Jose Alicea suffered severe head trauma in the assault early Friday and succumbed to his injuries, according to a press release issued this afternoon by Boston police. The Hyde Park resident had been in Massachusetts General Hospital, where he had been declared brain dead but living on life support.

Alicea's alleged attackers are are scheduled to be arraigned today in Boston Municipal Court on charges of assault and battery causing serious injury or death.

"The possibility remains that the charges could be upgraded," said Jake Wark, spokesman for the Suffolk district attorney's office.

The beating occurred at 2:25 a.m. on Friday outside 33 Restaurant & Lounge, a nightclub on Stanhope Street on the border of Back Bay and the South End. According to police, the aggressors were 12 men in matching red tuxedos who were arrested inside a limousine parked outside the club."

So start with 500 through 201, 200-101, 100-51, 50-21, 20-2, and end it with Outkast's BOB at 1.

San Francisco's Lombard Street as Candy Land
: The chance to play a real life version of Candy Land is something we all probably had day dreams about in our first grade class rooms. So in honor of the 60th birthday of the game, "crooked" Lombard Street in San Fransisco was transformed into a giant Candy Land and a bunch of lucky little ones were given the chance to play.

A map of Europe and Asia if the countries were animals instead of land

(via Dark Roasted Blend's Unusual And Marvelous Maps)

"This is an Asian view of the world situation around the time of the Chinese revolution of 1912. This map was actually published in Japan, but indicates the belief that there was a lot of foreign influence in China at this time. In this period just prior to the outbreak of war, the Russian bear looms large over Europe and Asia, Britain is depicted as a sea monster, reflecting the country’s position as the world’s predominant naval power at the time, while Germany is shown as a tusked warthog."

What's the what with all this new Radiohead - Okay, so two Radiohead songs (Harry Patch, In Memory Of and These Are My Twisted Words) have recently found themselves to the internet, and now there's a hub bub about a possible new EP on Monday? (via Pitchfork)

Pot Bellies? In? - Afif was telling me about this last night as we made our way to 30 Rock-Prov, and I guess it's goodbye to Bas Rutten and hello to D.G Yuengling and Son. (via Afif and The NY Times )

Happy 20th Sega Genesis
- Feeling kind of old due to the fact that the Sega Genesis, the second video game system I ever owned is almost old enough to drink. Even though I don't think it's a great idea to do shots with Sega, since it would probably mess up it's insides more than you would think! (via Gizmodo)

Manson follower, Squeeky Frome released - Of all the Summer of '69 stories, the Manson murders have always been fascinating with all the tie ins to the White Album and the book of Revelation and stuff. Now Squeaky who was the fourth member of the family who's resume includes the following bullet notes - sleeping with dairy farmer, George Spahn so the Family could reside at his ranch; involved in murder in Stockton, CA after the Tate case; Attempting to contact Jimmy Page because of foreseen evil in his future; an attempted assassination on President Gerald Ford; and she was played by Mary Lynn Rajskub in the 2004 Helter Skelter tv film staring Jeremy Davies aka Daniel Faraday. Welcome back to society, Squeeks, hope you were rehabilated or now you're just a crazy old broad. (via New York Times)

Maniac Cop Trilogy - Last Saturday night, I got a bombardment of texts from a friend about how great the Maniac Cop series was and I was intrigined because who is texting someone at 12:30 on a Saturday night about Horror films, right? So I checked out Part 1 on Sunday and Part 2 on Wednesday, and while one was a good campy 80s Horror flick, Part 2 was INCREDIBLE, they take everything great about Part 1 and make it even greater. So check them out on Netflix streaming, they are all there and it's worth it.

A Capella Jam: The Beach Boys - Sloop John B

I say this all the time - if you don't like this, maybe we should re-consider our friendship. This time plug in Pet Sounds into the equation, but let's be serious everyone loves that record so we're all friends! So check out the a Capella version Sloop John B above and check out the rest of the record without all those instrument things here.

The New Workout Plan (Bas Rutten's Work Out Plan)

I don't expect anyone to sit through the almost 25 minutes of MMA fighter, Bas Rutten hawk his work out BUT it is surprisingly entertaining to watch the Dutch born fighter go on about jabs, hooks, uppercuts, thai knees, thai kicks, defense, push ups, sit ups, and neck exercises. I was so entertained that I am contemplating attempting the Bas Rutten All Around Work Out, which is apparently 28 minutes of PAIN.

Dayman - The Mug!

With It's Always Sunny coming back for it's fifth season, FX has decided to go nuts with merchandise relating to Charlie, Dennis, Sweet Dee, Mac, and Frank. Of course when I saw this merch, I was all coldstone creamery - got to have it and picked up a shirt relating to a certain patriotic phrase and this nifty mug that with the help of a hot beverage turns from the Dayman into the Nightman!

Dayman! (Ahhh Ahh)

Let's go over some things that kind of freak me out with figure 1A from this patent application that seemed to be filed with the EPO -

1) The person in the drawing seems to be a child with what seems to be a receeding hairline.
2) The person is wearing a onesie, yes a onesie.
3) Television on the floor?
4) Where can this saddle device go in the future? Sexy wii?

"Michael Kay" on Twitter - Couple of MK's tweets from last night's marathon 15 inning game between the Yanks and the Sox: "Hey fans! Paulie is always so shy about tossing his yogurt around me," "Hey fans! "The crowd of 52,325 is on their feet. Joking. Laughing. Ripping. Slipping. Tripping. Ejaculating. Snorting. Winking," "Hey fans! Why would anyone idolize the best rebounder in NBA history? He should idolize a wife beater like DiMaggio or a drunk like Mantle!," and "Hey fans! I'm covered in yogurt! Paulie's covered in yogurt! But no one had vanilla yogurt! Was it me?! We'll make sense of it after this!" So if you
have Twitter, follow this dude.

Louis CK on Parks & Rec - Louis CK as Amy Poehler's love interest? Looks like Parks and Recreation has entered into a very dangerous game with 30 Rock with awesome love interests for the lead characters. Liz Lemon had Don Draper last season, this season - Barack Obama.

Unofficial Official OAB Review: Funny People

Seth Rogen sharing the screen with Wu Tang's RZA, one of the highlights of Funny People for me along with Raaaaaandy, Yo Teach, Norm, and Audrey Plaza. Low-lights for me include Adam Sandler and Leslie Mann's love affair, Tom from MySpace, and the disjointedness of the film, and the length. At two and half hours long was a movie that I didn't love as much as some of the other Apatow flicks nor hate as much as I thought I was going to going into the film. So the unofficial official OAB review for Funny People would be 3 pieces of Fruit out of 5.
