Ah yes, Detroit Style...very nice.
Very funny (safe for work) video of women's faces as they're getting their lower bits waxed.
I can't believe how many of them are actually laughing. The best part is where a foreign woman asks (through a translator) whether or not it will be painful, the wax technician says "Yes, very" then the translator tells the woman "No it is totally painless."
Suitable for framing, these large 18" x 24" posters are printed on durable heavyweight gloss text stock with aqueous coating, each one personally signed and numbered out a limited edition of 100.
Chicago Steve Hall found these before and after photos of people on Crystal Meth.
We have determined that being on Meth causes you to get really fucked-up haircuts.
If you have never seen William Shatner singing "Rocket Man" at some sci-fi convention in the late 70s...brother you haven't lived.
It devolves into this split screen of three versions of Shatner and one of them doing this weird lounge shimmy...you kinda gotta see it.
Dear Dogs and Cats,
The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Please note, placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.
The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Beating me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help because I fall faster than you can run.
I cannot buy anything bigger than a king sized bed. I am very sorry about this. Do not think I will continue sleeping on the couch to ensure your comfort. Dogs and cats can actually curl up in a ball when they sleep. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to maximize space is nothing but sarcasm.
For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If by some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not necessary to claw, whine, meow, try to turn the knob or get your paw under the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through the same door I entered. Also, I have been using the bathroom for years-canine or feline attendance is not mandatory.
This guy got his car trapped in an avalanche and peed his way out using urine to melt the snow.

Oh this poor poor weatherman.
How do you get to be at that level (even if it is just at a college TV station) with absolutely no public speaking skills? Doesn't it seem like somebody in one of his Broadcasting classes shoulda sat him down and said "Look Harvey, you're a great guy and everything, but you should maybe re-think working toward a job where you will have to communicate ideas using your mouth...what about accounting? Huh? Accounting is pretty cool, right?"
...seconds before what the Vatican is now referring to as "The Ozzy Incident"

I'd lend him mine but I'm still using it...

Mad Lib Filled With Swears
PORTLAND, ME— The popular party amusement Mad Libs was misued for profane purposes Monday, when Peter Leff, a Portland-area 12-year-old, filled the blank spaces on a "Space Adventure Mad Lib" entirely with swear words.
"Prepare to shit the enemy," Leff had Space Commander Mr. Garrick say. "Set all pussys on fart and brace for blowjobs."
This prompted Dave Below to recount his 6th Grade Dirty Madlibs story.

Matt Tobey has at long last published his "The 500 Best Songs Ever!" list, compiled from the hearts and ears of many AMG employees, other funny guys and assorted folks that I don't know but have great taste in music.
In all honesty, I don't know that I've ever seen a list that I respect as much as this. There are the weird songs that you thought only you liked like "Buick City Complex" by the Old 97s, "Ana Ng" by They Might Be Giants, "You Were Right" by Built to Spill, and any list that has The Police's "So Lonely" at the #40 spot is right on in my book.
Possibly the coolest/geekiest thing ever!

For some reason Debbie Gibson thinks people want to see her take her clothes off for Playboy.

PostSecret is a site that displays postcards mailed in revealing secrets people are hiding, like "I only love one of my children" and "I believe my dead grandmother watches me with great disappointment every time I masturbate."

Holy God, if you want to buy some of Sammy Hagar's urine or John Cougar Mellencamp's bacteria, you can from this site.
FAQ: Is this legal?
Yes. Federal laws simply require that our samples not create an immediate threat of injury or disease propagation. Our fecal matter, urine, saliva, and sweat specimens are hermetically sealed in unbreakable plastic containers to prevent any unwanted personal injury. Bacteria and skin cells are sealed within heavy-duty glass microscope slides.

Some of the scans are lost to the ages, but I recommend Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (complete with guns and misspellings), Full Metal Jacket 2 (some kind of video "mash-up" of a John Ritter movie and Pauly Shore's "In the Army Now") and If These Walls Could Talk 2 (complete with the tagline "Women Love Woman" and then a picture of a guy on the cover).

Here is the time-honored worst album covers of all time (you know, with "Joyce," "Tino," and "Julie's Sixteenth Birthday," but this time there are good comments).
"I *think* they wanted this to be a picture of a father consoling his young daughter on her sweet sixteen because she got pregnant or something. What I see when I look at this picture is a married guy (wedding ring) in a bar (beer and cigarette), holding hands with a girl who is twenty years his junior. She has been in the trunk of his Camaro for two or three days, and he made her put on lots of makeup so he could get her in to the bar for a date. He is busy insisting that she loves him, or will grow to love him if she knows what’s good for her. She silently screams for him to stop squeezing her hand so hard and just let her go. The absence of eye contact says it all. She is praying for the sweet release of death."

The horrible, horrible Grammy Nominations were announced today.
Notice hoobastank's aptly named publishing company:

And his son Max got a tattoo, apparently...
Gerard really had one of the first "weblogs" out there. He moved to Kenya and in order to keep us up to speed he started a website...well, the only easy avenue to do that through at the time was through Angelfire and they made you name your website through this convoluted chain of "Interests" like "Fishing" and...I dunno "Horticulture" or something, so you would end up with a goofy-titled url for your page like www.Fishing/andHorticulture.Angelfire.com or something bizarro like that, so Gerard ended up with Wrestling / WithLions and it looks like it stuck: Ladies and Guatemalans, I give you www.wrestlingwithlions.blogspot.com
Please note: This website is not interesting yet.

Anti-seat belt law advocate is killed in automobile accident.
I can't remember which comedian it was who had a whole routine about assholes who want to be "Thrown Free" in the event of an accident...Carlin? Not Bill Hicks...anyhoo, the point of it is that the only real "exit" from a moving car is the exhaust pipe, so if that's how you want to be leaving the car, be my guest...
Drum dorks are going to be into this collection of Essential Drum Kits.
Particularly ZZ Top's Frankly Ridiculous Tama Kit: "How deep are those toms? Now you can see why the Rainforest is vanishing."
Henry Rollins' e-bay profile:
Seems as though he buys primarily rare vinyl and indie 7" singles...whooda thunkit?

Who says the guys at Rand-McNally don't know how to party?

I remember hearing about Concrete TV in High School (I think). It's just this guy with too much time on his hands who takes interesting things he sees on TV and melds them into crazy collages.
Expect to see midgets, women aerobicising, guns being shot off, Britney Spears, car crashes, breakdancing, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, GoGo dancers and guys crashing their bikes.
Steve brings the eBay Goodness:
This guy is selling some gift cards...or something, but the very Canadian photos are what really makes it.
"the guy sitting peacefully in the back seat of the "driving car" one is my favourite"
And if anyone is looking to hook me up with a present for my Bar Mitzvah, this guy is selling the entire Sub Pop Singles Club collection.
What's that? Luna's 45 of "Everybody's Talking" isn't in there? Fergettit.
Ever since I turned one of PJ's sweaters into a hand puppet, these are the kinds of labels I need.
Call me immature, but the Dialect-izer entertains me by showing me what any website would look like if it was spoken in a different dialect.
For instance, if you thought the DataWhat tsunami coverage was hilarious before, you'll love it spoken in the dialect of "Jive" although to be hoonest it sounds more like it is being read by Hermes, the Jamaican guy on Futurama, or maybe the cast of "Cool Runnings"

Paul's quote: "I am crying with joy!"
Zac's Quote: "That's retarded...Hard to believe this is from the country once run by Hitler."
Apparently on New Years Day, a bunch of people sent up their Radio Controlled Airplanes all over the world and took arial photos.
Not quite as funny as a guy in a poncho licking a fluorescent light fixture, but inneresting to me.
Interesting shot-by-shot comparison between The Matrix and The Ghost in the Shell (Anime movie from a couple years before)
Hmmm... Exploding watermelons? I declare shenanigans!
The chubby guy who made his own Tron suit now has his own Website

These Doors To Remain Unlocked During Business Hours
If you're lookin' for Tsunami, you come to the right place.
Remember that crazy Japanese matrix ping-pong video? Here's a Pole Vault Version:
Not quite as good, but at least the guy's got fake legs.
Q. How many hipsters does it take to screw in a light bulb?

A review of 2004 proves how wacky the auto industry really is.
The much-maligned Pontiac Aztek sport-utility vehicle outsells the high-performance Pontiac GTO. So General Motors adds a higher output V-8 to the GTO for 2005 - and discontinues Aztek.
Jim Farley, head of Toyota's youth-oriented Scion division, says the boxy xB wagon that's uglier than Aztek is his top seller despite almost being vetoed when Toyota executives, shown the prototype, asked: "When do the clowns come out of it?"
The annual Reliability Study by Consumer Reports magazine finds the Buick Regal is more reliable than the Toyota Camry, the industry's top-selling car in 2003. After celebrating for an hour and a half, Buick drops Regal for an all-new LaCrosse for '05.
A national consumer survey finds that 64 percent of motorists demand that their vehicle have a cup holder - to hold the cell phone.
Rather than offering rebates or discount financing, luxury automaker Bentley attracts buyers by making the optional umbrellas standard equipment.
Influential J.D. Power and Associates releases its annual Dependability Study of owner satisfaction after three years. It rates the Chevrolet Prizm, Cadillac Eldorado, Buick Century and Chrysler Concorde among the most dependable in the industry - but fails to note that each has been discontinued.
Based on worldwide production figures, demand for Japanese cars is highest in the United States and Europe, lowest in Japan.
Humiliated after having to rename its exotic GT40 sports car the GT when it found another company owned the original name, Ford tries to save face by calling its 2006 midsize sedan Futura. It switches to Fusion after finding Pep Boys owns the Futura name for its tires.
Chrysler Group's chief executive, Dieter Zetsche, says he knew the 2005 Hemi V-8-powered Chrysler 300C was a hit after rapper Snoop Dogg called his office insisting he had to have one - and then calling his son to learn who Snoop Dogg is.
I've only had dreamboats for roommates, but if you think you've lived with the roommate from hell,
you should read this story.
It culminates in such a bizarro David Lynch cinematic freakout it may be entirely false, but man oh man what a ride.
This kayaker gets a close encounter with a whale.

This site allows you to make a virtual model of yourself...y'know, to try on clothes and stuff?
Certainly not to make a huge-breasted, nine foot tall, 53 pound bald woman. No no no, who would even think of that?
Ain't it the truth? Right Fellers?
The word "Shiznit" now appears in the Wikipedia
Expletive infixation, a form of tmesis seen in profanity such as "Massa-fucking-chusetts" and "unbe-fucking-lievable"
