Facebook Community Page For "To Many"

A while back, Facebook started auto-creating community pages for stuff people were listing under their interests. This also included all the misspelled and grammatically incorrect stuff. So you wind up with something like this.

Look under "Related Posts" and "Related Global Posts". Now you can see just how many of your friends and fellow Facebook users can't get that phrase right.

I'd love to hear about any other misspelled fan and community pages (auto-created or not) that have a huge amount of followers as well. This entertains me quite a bit for some reason.

Glenn Beck Launches News Site.

Glenn Beck just launched his own news website, entitled The Blaze, which went live yesterday.

Also, apparently Beckerheads practice "Leave No Trace". Wouldn't have imagined the overlap in philosophy.

Wait, The 1978 Wurlitzer Funmaker Was Real?

I totally thought it was something they imagined up for Mission Hill (From Episode 6, "Unemployment: Part 1"), but no, it's a real instrument. And from the look of it, it totally lives up to it's name.

Fred Savage Isn't Dead.

Apparently during the Emmy's "In Memoriam" montage they accidentally included a pic of Fred Savage instead of Corey Haim. Or a pic of Corey Haim that looked like Fred Savage. I dunno. Didn't watch.

But there's always Jay Pinkerton's old comic where he does horrible things to Fred Savage. Enjoy.

Tim Heidecker "Live" At The Glenn Beck "Restoring Honor" Rally.

Tim Heidecker (of Tom Goes To The Mayor and Awesome Show) has been tweeting the events he sees live from the Glenn Beck rally, and it truly appears to be as historic and iconic an event as Beck claimed it would be.

Gallagher Is a Paranoid, Right-Wing, Watermelon-Smashing Maniac.

A not so glowing, okay actually kind of depressing, review from The Stranger.

Wonder what the Juggalos thought of him at the Gathering.

Atilla - Billy Joel's Psychedelic Metal Band.

How have I never heard of this before now?

"[It's as if] a drill has punctured the center of your skull — it's that piercing, painful, and monotonous."
- Man, I would have jumped on a review like that when I was a teenager looking for music.

"Pre Crime" Tops Google Trends. Alex Jones Takes Credit.

In response to this article, Alex Jones asked his listeners to Google the term "pre crime" to find it. In response, the term "Pre Crime" hit the top Google Trending topic. In response to that, Jones's site Prison Planet blogged about it. In response to that, Prison Planet's article about the Google Trending status of the term "Pre Crime" is now the second most popular article under that same search term.

When Jim Henson And The Muppets Vandalized NBC

Here's an awesome story about a mischievous pre-Sesame Street Jim Henson and friends playing a prank when kept waiting all day in the NBC studio.

Wow, That's Kinda Kreepy, K-Love.

Wendy's Beverage Training Rap.

I hope for the sake of everyone involved this thing was made in 1990, but I have a feeling it was made a couple of years ago.

Seriously tho, did it takes two minutes to explain this?

Wikipedia "Editors" Censor The Bilderberg Group's Nazi Ties.

Well, that's certainly a provocative headline, I wonder what kind of evidence will be present- OH HOLY HELL:

Wow. That's some website you've got there, www.bilderberg.org. Nothing remotely crazy looking there at all.

It's like a checklist:

Ann Coulter Used To Be Pretty Cute, In A Dorky Way.

I've seen this pic thrown around on the internet a bit, with various commentary. One thing nobody has pointed out is how absolutely adorable she is. I mean, those cheeks, that turtleneck, that cute little bob haircut, she's in the fencing club for godsakes...

I think I'm totally developing a crush on Ann Coulter, circa 1980 or so. I would totally have invited her out so we could sit across from each other in beanbag chairs, eating french fries and listening to Voices by Hall And Oates with a pair of giant headphones apiece. Her kiss would have been on my list, if you know what I mean.

Well, if I hadn't been like 3 years old when this pic was taken, that is.

19th Amendment, Was It The Beginning Of The End For America?

From the brain-geniouses at Free Republic.

"It is sad but true that women are natural liberals. It seems that they have to assure that they have the government and/or a man to look after their needs. It is a bunch of hooey that women wanted equal rights. They wanted extra rights."

There’s a reason why the Dems are called “the mommy party” and the Republicans “the daddy party.”

Look At That Cute Little KERF.

Dance Routine To The Greek Alphabet.

Dear FOX News, Mr. Rogers Wasn't Evil...

FOX News, I hope you choke on a bag of dicks in hell. In some misguided quest to promote some cynically awful worldview and make a stodgy, feeble jab at the inherent "entitlement issues" that have been a facet of youth culture as long as there has ever even been such a thing as youth culture, you're gonna ignorantly drag through the mud the name of a performer that devoted the entirety of his decades-long career to making the world a better place.

I wound up devoting a few afternoon's research into Fred Rogers for my file sharing article on Cracked, and found a wealth of examples of his selflessness and devotion to making the world of entertainment and the larger world around it a better place.

You even make a jab about him being dead. You totally did. Stay classy; you awful, venom-drooling reptilian creatures.

It's hardly the first or last time I'll say this, but fuck you.

Love, ralF23.

Found a little bit of footage from our sweltering early evening performance (5:45 PM, 99 degrees in the shade) at the Tx Industrial Fest hosted by Austin Cyberpunks. Looks like we got a new fan! =)

Idris Elba Is Scared Of A Challenge, Apparently.

Yeah, Idris Elba might be a big shot DJ and actor who just picked up a role on a new Showtime series, but the internet still wants to know: why has he still not answered the challenge of Big Nif (aka DJ 1 Sock)?

Looks like his high score is 35563, according to the video. He needs to step up!


Thanks to Balloon Juice for this awesomely succinct image.

Here's a a post from 30 Mosques in 30 days which takes you inside and lets you see how benign and boring the place really is. Like any church, no matter what the silly name and no matter how big a hyperbole vomiting dickweed people want to be about it.

This guy has a ton of MGMT and Muse songs reversed on his Youtube profile, if that happens to be your thing. For some reason he never got around to doing "Love Always Remains" though, which is strange and sad.

Tila Tequila Assaulted By Juggalos At Their Tribal Gathering.

TMZ picked up some photos earlier today of Tila Tequila after her appearance at the Gathering Of The Juggalos, where she was apparently pelted with rocks and feces by the crowd.

ProTip: Don't look at the comments section for that article if you retain any faith in humanity.

As much as I tend to resent people who become famous and wealthy without displaying any sort of talent, this is bullshit. And Tila Tequila is pretty awful, too.

Seriously tho, they gave similar treatment to Andrew W K a few years ago. Except he handled it pretty awesomely:

Wait, Glenn Beck Talking Sense (Sort Of) About Gay Marriage?

This. Is. Adorable.

Holy shit.

I like how O'Reilly is apparently incapable of pulling his punches even on a guy that fundamentally agrees with him on just about everything else. He just keeps going for the kidney shot of the one thing they disagree about, belittles the focus and direction of his peer's show, and tries to awkwardly put words in his mouth.

Seriously, it's adorable.

Way to make even Glenn Beck seem likable and reasonable by comparison.

Wait, The Ghostbusters Cartoon Was Based On A Live Action Show?

Okay, before you write me off as touched in the head, I'm not talking about The Real Ghostbusters based off the Ivan Reitman /Dan Ackroyd / Harold Ramis movie. I'm talking about the cartoon Filmation's Ghostbusters. The one with this intro:

I watched this cartoon a few times as a kid, and had absolutely no idea that it was based off an earlier live action show:

Felix Da Housecat - Rocket Ride - Wizard Of Oz Themed Video

For some reason, I remember this video having a different mix of the song. There was a promotional DVD they used to play at a bar I worked at with this video on it, but the mix was slower and more dance club-ish. If anyone can track down that version of the video, I'd appreciate it.

Apparently *I* Have More Youtube Presence Than This Souleye Feller.

So I was genuinely curious about what this Souleye cat was all about, not the least because I still harbor a massive unrequited crush on Alanis Morissette that goes back to the You Can't Do That On Television days.

A quick search on Youtube reveals some poorly recorded live footage from 2 years ago or more... and the video I chose to include which has just about nothing to do with him, I think.

Any fans of his out there that know where to find some decent footage of him that might impress me, feel free to include links in the comments. Thanks!

This makes me think of that scene in Fight Club with the replaced airline instructions. Reblogged from Geekosystem's Geekolinks. Also, here's an article on there of Steven Slater tributes.

Why Is Sven Hoek Funny?

I remember hearing about the Ren and Stimpy episode "Sven Hoek" secondhand when I was in high school. Didn't catch it while it was on the air, but I remember having a visceral reaction to the name. It just sounded so funny to me, and I couldn't explain why.

On John Kricfalusi's blog a while back, he took some time to meditate on stereotypes in general and possible reasons why noone complained when he made about his funny little Nordic cartoon pal.

Main Street Has The Scariest Rape Vans.

Worst Rape-Van Ever.

If you'd like your eyes and mind raped, you should check out Main Street Bites Back, home of the completely serious and holy shit they're not joking Glen Beck 2012 headquarters. I'm sure there's words and stuff involved, but I got distracted playing with the creepy automated Robo-bama on the front page:


Also, there's this:

The VP Of Human Resources At NBC Bought Something From Me On eBay.

So, I was going through my Paypal preparing some recent eBay sales for shipping and came across this transaction-

Does that name look familiar? Not to me either, but when I looked at the shipping address, I flipped out. Assuming it had to be a scam of some sort, I did a Google search to confirm and found this-

In case you're curious, this was the item purchased:

Pretty cool stuff.

EPILOGUE: I dropped a note in the package with my name and email address and said if there was anything cool on the film I'd love to hear about it. I got a email back saying that it was bought for decorative purposes and that restoration may not happen. The End. Maybe.

Political Cartoon Fail.

I can only infer from this comic strip that California's courts are gonna force all the voters to marry that dude from the old Aerosmith video-

I mean, it's the only thing in the strip not ham-fistedly labeled, so I assume I'm free to add my own interpretation. Not so much with this one tho-

I like how one guy is labeled "Gay" and the other is labeled "Marriage". Is it just me or is "Marriage" actually the more nelly-looking of the two? A little bit of unintentional subtext there?

Maybe there is more too it than meets the eye.
