Genius says Madonna ripped him off

This guy thinks Madonna ripped him off for her track “Give Me All Your Luvin.'” Could be. I dunno. Maybe. But he can be comforted with the knowledge that his song is by far the superior work out of the two. This is “L.O.V.E. Banana” by Joao Brasil, feat Lovefoxx. It’s awesome.


Crazy dude dives from 36 feet into 12 inches of water

So, I always thought the Bugs Bunny cartoon about the high dive into a bucket was about a thing that folks don’t actually do. You know, it’s funny because it’s impossible. Apparently, it’s not, though.

This guy Darren Taylor does  it all the time. Darren – who was voted “most likely to break his neck” in high school – broke the Guinness record for the 13th time by diving into 30 cm (11.8 in) of water from a height of 11.05 m (36 ft 3 in) on the set of Lo Show Dei Record, in Milan, Italy, on 10 March 2011.

This shiz is nuts. See more videos of dudes diving off high things into teeny pools of water here.

Interactive graphic of “The Scale of the Universe,” by a 14 year old boy

When I was 14 years old I was skipping class, hanging out in the quad smoking cigarettes and mooning over punk rock boys.

These 14-year-old twins created an interactive animation called “The Scale of the Universe 2” which shows uh, the scale of the universe, from the teeniest matter like quantum foam to the largest – the observable universe. What the hell is wrong with kids these days?

ABC News says “Scale of the Universe 2” was created by Cary Huang, a 14-year-old ninth grader from Moraga, California, with the help of his twin Brother Michael.

“It was not a school project — just for fun,” says Cary. “However, my science teacher loved it so much she showed [it] to the class! My brother, Michael, helped me put it on the internet.”

This isn’t the interactive version. Click here for that. On that one, you can click on each object to get more information about it and control the zoom.

And yes, as the name suggests, there was a “The Scale of the Universe 1.” Cary says the first had less information in it, and the graphics needed work.

Eyeroll. It’s freakin’ brilliant.

I’ve wasted my life.

Rejection letter rejection

I hope this guy got the job after this.

Purple squirrel is purple

This is a purple squirrel. And Toronto thinks it’s special because it has white squirrels – well, actually, the mythology is supposed to be that it’s just one white squirrel in Trinity Bellwoods park, but I don’t know how anyone knows that the squirrel they’re seeing is the same one over and over again. Maybe it’s because two white squirrels have never been seen at the same time. But it’s still a pretty big leap, if you ask me, which NOBODY EVER DOES.

So, according to Fox News, this little dude was found in Jersey Shore, Pa.

“We have bird feeders out in our yard, and the squirrels are constantly into them,” said Jersey Shore resident Connie Emert. “My husband traps them and then sets them free elsewhere so they don’t get into your bird feeders.”

“Emert said she had spotted a purple squirrel on her property but no one believed her.

“I kept telling my husband I saw a purple one out in the yard. ‘Oh sure you did’ he kept telling me,” said Emert. “Well, he checked the trap around noon on Sunday and sure enough, there it was.””

This is news in Jersey Shore. Ha. This amuses me. But I disapprove of Connie’s husband possibly taking parent squirrels away from their babies and leaving the babies to die for the sake of his damn bird feeder. Feed birds but kill squirrels? Bad mandate.

I wonder what happened to Party Squirrel here, if he just rolled in something or what.

Police composite sketches of literary characters

Found this through my amazing friend Lisa Mesbur and The Daily What. It’s a Tumblr of composite sketches of literary characters created using law enforcement composite sketch software and descriptions of the characters. And it’s all kinds of awesome.

To go with the image above:

Humbert Humbert, Lolita, Vladimir Nabokov [but you could already tell that right? Like, duh. So obvs.]

Gloomy good looks…Clean-cut jaw, muscular hand, deep sonorous voice…broad shoulder…I was, and still am, despite mes malheurs, an exceptionally handsome male; slow-moving, tall, with soft dark hair and a gloomy but all the more seductive cast of demeanor. Exceptional virility often reflects in the subject’s displayable features a sullen and congested something that pertains to what he has to conceal. And this was my case…But instead I am lanky, big-boned, wooly-chested Humbert Humbert, with thick black eyebrows…A cesspoolful of rotting monsters behind his slow boyish smile…aging ape eyes…Humbert’s face might twitch with neuralgia.”

Florida couple told their 2-faced kitty is a “beast” and to kill it

Check out this adorable Janus kitten.


1. The couple that owns him is adorable.

2. His mom seems to have taken to him as well, which isn’t always the case with Janus cats.

3. His name is Harvey Dent.


1. The odds of survival are against him.

2. They might not be able to afford his vet bills.

3. If you live in Port Charlotte, Florida, people on Craigslist tell you a black cat with two faces is an “abomination” and that you’re evil if you don’t kill it.


Snort laugh: Brothers add directors’ commentary to old home movies.

I saw this ages ago and had the good intention of posting it but I’m farking busy, OK? Get off my back. In case you missed it, two brothers added director-style commentaries to their old family home movies. The end result is amusing. This is their YouTube channel:

New video from Die Antwoord

After all that initial hype, Die Antwoord never really happened, did they?

After they signed with Interscope in 2010, the Capetown hip hip group left before an album could be released, apparently because of a dispute. And I’ve been dying to see if they’ll make it once a record comes out, since I suspect they might be either too crazy, too novelty, too contrived or all three. I like them. But I think they’re pretty limited in scope.

Apparently we’ll get to see what happens soon, as their album, Ten$ion, finally drops as a self release on February 7. Here’s a new video for “I Fink U Freeky”… they might have a bit of trouble regaining that momentum.


My new flying, remote control inflatable shark

I have a new toy. I bought it in Las Vegas with Lisa, Kristy and Gabriella, where we wound up at an outlet mall because that’s where everyone seemed to think we should go. The people in Las Vegas are very much about the “outlet mall.” When we were trying to find a place to have breakfast that wasn’t underground – Vegas is like a city of mole people – the woman at the concierge desk sent us to the iHop adding that “it’s near the outlet mall!” like that was a BIG BONUS! And then at least three other people, including the doorman and the cab driver, were all “Oh, you’ll be near the outlet mall!” So, as you can imagine, I was excited about this magical place called the “outlet mall,” because I’ve never been to an “outlet mall” before. Well, we went there – but not before breakfast at the iHop, where I’ve also never been and where the waitress almost had a panic attack when Lisa asked for Earl Gray tea, because she didn’t know what it was. She didn’t know what “black tea” was either, so Lisa finally settled on “Tea tea. Lipton’s tea,” because that’s what the waitress said they had – and it turns out the outlet mall is just a collection of stores with cheap, shitty clothes, so I was pretty disappointed. However, and this is a big however, there was a booth selling flying inflatable remote control sharks. Of course, I had to buy one and I’m going to call him Feargal Sharkey. Lisa just looked at me blankly when I said that. Why do I even hang out with her?

The shark is one of these, this is gonna be fun:
