Here is a house decked out with lights that do some groovy stuff to the Ghostbusters theme song by Creative Lighting Displays, which is famous for their holiday display videos. It involves “4 singing pumpkin faces, tombstones, hand carved pumpkins, strobes, floods, 2 Matrix boards and thousands of lights.”
Every time I hear this song I try to remember who sued who, did Huey Lewis and the News sue Ray Parker Jr. or the other way around? Or did I imagine the whole thing? I could probably just Google it but by the time I get around to it I will have lost interest in the question.
Some guy made a game where you “scrub a hunk’s back” in the gym shower. The guy is wearing sunglasses and I can’t help but wonder if he has one of those eye conditions that make you sensitive to the light, because why else would you be wearing sunglasses in the shower? And if so, does he wear them all the time?
My brother had a friend in high school who wore sunglasses indoors and claimed to have one of those conditions but I think he was lying. I had a crush on him.
There are naked men in the game so don’t play it at work if your workplace frowns upon games involving wet naked men.
Need proof that you suck the big one as a parent? I got your back. Here you go. An Optimus Prime cake that ACTUALLY WORKS AS A TRANSFORMER. What did you get for your kid’s last birthday? Some supermarket piece of junk with a train on it? Yeah. You suck.
This guy, on the other hand, rocks so hard Slayer has a shrine to him in their studio.

This is what happens when you put a $10 Ikea print in an an art museum and tell people it’s by a “famous” artist. I think my favourite part is the ending and how good natured they all seem to be about it.
I don’t know what, if anything, this says about the world of high art. People are always trying to discredit something. My husband could probably share some insight, as he’s an art critic, but he’s not home right now.
You guys! How can you look at a picture of a DRESS!? AND FIND IT INTERESTING!? WHEN THERE ARE BAD THINGS HAPPENING IN THE WORLD!???
Quick, look at this instead.
PARTY ON JAPANESE GUY!
(You’d never know from this post that I am a professional writer and editor. What I should have written is “PARTY ON, JAPANESE GUY!” Because the way I wrote it looks like there is a party on the Japanese guy, and not like I am suggesting he continue his apparently lifelong party, which is actually my intention. Oh, well. It’s too late now. )
My friends and I got stuck in Vegas overnight. We got sent to a LA Quinta motel, which I think is Spanish for “Air Canada are f*cking cheap bastards.”
This guy got stuck in Vegas overnight and stayed in the airport to make this AMAZING music video to Celine Dion’s “All By Myself,” making good use of the moving sidewalks, escalators and assorted airport whatnot.
He explains (via Gawker)
“I had a person behind a ticket counter give me a roll of luggage tape before she left. I then used a wheel chair that had a tall pole on the back of it and taped my iPhone to that. Then I would put it on the moving walkway for a dolly shot. I also used the extended handle on my computer bag and taped the iPhone to my handle. I would tuck different stuff under the bag to get the right angle. For the escalator shot I had to sprint up the steps after I got my shot so the computer bag didn’t hit the top and fall back down. Quite fun!”
Who wins? This guy. I wish we’d thought of this.
You’ve already seen this, right?
My husband sent it to me months ago and I was so busy watching it 27 times that I forgot to post it.
Anyway, in case you haven’t seen it…
* I’m kidding. I’m pretty sure Fitty isn’t actually involved here.
Bored? Old Spice has a thing where you can type in a Huey Lewis song and a hairpiece will play it on piano.
I used to wear a wig sometimes, back in the 1990s, for fun. It never did anything interesting by itself.

This is really good.
Smoukahontas (I’m sure it’s her real name) of Finland demonstrates what foreign languages sound like, using gibberish.
She says, “Me goofing around, showing what certain languages sound like to me. The sentences in this video are made up apart from a few exceptions. Dont take it too seriously! Im retarded :)”
I know some people who would be supermad about her use of the word “retarded.”
These are awesome. I didn’t know all the movies but I think I got most of them.
They’re by Pixar storyboard artist, Josh Cooley, who has worked on some of the company’s biggest movies, including Up and The Incredibles. He’s created a book titled Movies R Fun!: A Collection of Cinematic Classics for the Pre-(Film) School Cinephile.
