Flosser Merinda has sent in this educational and hilarious chart regarding heavy metal band names. It reminds me of a Ricky Gervais podcast where they attempted to come up with the Most Ultimate Metal Name ... Ever. Suggestions included "Brain Hammer" and "Tumor Fish," but the eventual winner was "Deathlehem," a band that would only play their concept albums on tour during Christmas. Brilliant.

Strange and bizarre images fill the portfolio of photographer Holger Pooten ... but we like it that way.

Dissatisfied with Hollywood casting choices? Cast and recast movies here with an online Storycasting (If you're playing a drinking game that's one beer for every time I typed "cast" - oops! there's another one).
*
You guys know I've never once, even under pressure, Rick Roll'd you. But, in time for the inauguration, I will Barack Roll you, and you will like it (Thanks Rebecca!)

Does anyone have the time?

Thanks goes out to Krystal for sending in a link to some sumptuously sarcastic stationary, for every cynical occasion.

Also from Krystal, feeling spooky? Ready to hear the stories of the Midnight Society? If you dare ... the complete set of Are You Afraid of the Dark? episodes online.

Extra! Extra! Police use Facebook to nab burgler.

New ideas for winter knitting: a braaaaaain!

From my friend Sarah, a cute-tastic video of odd animal friends - this time, between a dog and an elephant (and note the groan-worthy pun at the start)
*
Natural deodorant is great, but do they have to call it "Funk Butter?"
*
"I will go where the streets have ..." terrible names. Let us hope we never have to say "make a left on Booger Branch and go straight until you hit Diggleberry Road" to direct someone to our abode.

What a wonderful world!

Creepy abandoned amusement park does not evoke the connotations of the word "amusement."

2008 was a pretty good year for movies, but 2009 will be even better! Whet your appetite with this list of upcoming films (raise your hand if you are geeked over Watchmen ... me! me!)

Lori felt inspired by my amateur photo last week and sent in some jewels of her own!
