The Story of Cow Head

In Japan they say there is a ghost story that is so horrible that anyone hearing it dies of fright. The story is called Cow Head, and few know the story because most who hear it die. There was a teacher who told it to his students....

Cats in Wonderland

Friskies has made this strange catfood commercial. Someone remixed it with the Byrds Eight Miles High. Which makes it much better.

Ok Cupid runs the numbers on politics

The dating site Ok Cupid uses their base of members to look up interesting stats. This time they show how Democrats don't really have much in common but Republicans do. They also show how political convictions change over the course of a lifetime.

I'm probably an outlier. I'm 40 but way over in the Libertarian/Democrat side.

Jesus, Elvis and Harry Houdini want to know how much for the woman? How much for the little girl?

A man in Russellville, Alabama broke into a man's home, claimed he was Jesus, and said he was there to have sex with his wife and daughter. When that didn't work he pulled down his pants and said he was Elvis.

When police arrived he said he was the grandson of Harry Houdini and could escape from anything.

The best part is the name of the man's hometown, Gun Town, Mississippi.

This one is the Gay Time Painting Book. Which wouldn't be that weird, except on the cover there's an ambiguously sexual person getting a goat horn up he/she's ass while a creepy farmer looks on approvingly.  See more, here.

Cult finds reluctant messiah

Raj Patel, author of The Value of Nothing, an analysis of the world financial collapse, has been declared the messiah of a religion. The religion is called Share International, led by Benjamin Creme, believes the messiah of all religions will appear on international tv. Patel fulfilled that requirement when he appeared on The Colbert Report. His skin color, place of birth and slight stutter are all signs that he is the messiah, believer say. Patel has denied being the messiah, but his denial has been taken as further proof of his holiness.

"What I'm arguing in the book is precisely the opposite of the Maitreya." He said, "what we need is various kinds of rebellion and transformations about how private property works."

Scary Girl

This chick dresses up as the girl from The Ring and scares people in Japan. It's high-larious.

Xander got tazed!

Nicholas Brendon, who played Xander on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, was arrested. The cops showed up for a disorderly conduct call and he tried to run. Somehow in his escape attempt he caused enough damage to be charged with defacing property, which is a felony. The cops tazed him and took him to jail. Full Story.

Don't taze me bro!

Proof of time travel

A man claims that he traveled through time to see his future self. Which sounds nuts, but he has video of his younger self and his older self standing together. Pretty convincing.

This shows what cams are online, what they are showing and where they are. Pretty cool. You should look up your hometown and see if anyone you know is naked.

Short People

I loved this song when I was a kid. I couldn't understand why people were so offended.
Even then, at the age of 8, I could tell he was being ironic. In the middle of the song he even says "short people are just like you and me." They tried to ban this song in Maryland.

Some people only hear what they want to hear.

Who would want to look like this?

Here are some pics of overtrained bodybuilders. These people don't even look human anymore.

This guy should start shooting heroin. He would never have trouble finding a vein.

And this one looks post human. Check out those abs. They look like rolls of fat or huge sausages. He could use his trapezoid for a pillow. How can he move and do normal things? I seriously doubt he is really strong. I think if he used his muscles for serious work they would blowout like bad tires.

It's just sick and stupid.

Lord British bought robots on the moon

Lord British is the guy who created Ultima. He bought two Soviet moon robots that were left behind. I think it's pretty cool, and a great investment. Someday he will be able to retrieve them and then they will be worth millions. They're also antiques.

I don't see how a ghost can beat a Yeti. Also, if Robots were allowed to play they would totally kick ass. This is Robophobia!

John Cory is angry

I'm tired of pundits and know-nothing media gasbags. I'm tired of snarky "inside politics" programming. I am sick of the bigotry and hatred of "birthers" and faux patriotic cranks and their GOP puppet masters. And I'm really pissed at the Democratic Party that confuses having a plate of limp noodles with having a spine.

20 great songs of the 80's

Let's face it, music in the '80s was better than music today. It was a time when an English drag queen calling himself Boy George could prance around wearing an Amish hat and a sweatshirt that was too big and yet no one realized he was gay. Back then people didn't even think it was odd when Michael Jackson went out on dates with a midget, a monkey and Brooke Shields. It was a different time, a better time.

Dwight Yoakam, "Guitars, Cadillacs"

This song, like most country songs, is about a man who's woman left him. Now the only thing that keeps him hanging on is "Guitars, Cadillacs and hillbilly music."

Run-D.M.C./Aerosmith, "Walk This Way"

The original version by Aerosmith was one of the best songs of the '70s, and the Run-D.M.C. version was one of the best of the '80s. It could even be called the first Rap Metal song. When the song came out Aerosmith had been forgotten for a few years. Drugs and alcohol had dimmed the lights of these rock stars, but after some time in rehab they cam back bigger than ever. It didn't hurt Run-D.M.C., either.

Band-Aid, "Feed the World"

This was the best Christmas song of the '80s. This supergroup inspired the song "We are the World" by USA for Africa. The Brits were the first to come up with the concept of getting all the big pop stars of the day together to sing a song and donate the proceeds to charity. Members included all the big British pop stars such as members of Bananrama, Duran Duran, Phil Collins, Sting, Bono, David Bowie and Boy George. Not only did it inspire USA for Africa, there were scores of other imitators.

Dolly Parton "9 to 5"

This country song, from the movie of the same name, gave hope to working women everywhere. Just by letting them know they weren't the only ones who have a boss who's an idiot.

Beastie Boys, "Brass Monkey"

It's not about a a monkey made out of brass, it's about a drink. Take a 40 of malt liquor, drink it down to the label, then fill it up the rest of the way with orange juice. Sounds nasty to me. But it's a great song.

B-52's "Love Shack"

This one squeaks in just under the wire in 1989. They were from the same town that gave birth to R.E.M. and lots of other bands in the Southern Jangle Pop movement. This song is kitschy and fun. Tin Roof, Rusted!

Prince, "When Doves Cry"

This hit from the soundtrack and album Purple Rain turned Prince into a superstar. It's rare that a movie starring a musician is any good, but this was one of the exceptions. The beat and vocals propelled this song to number one in Jun of 1984. The Purple One is in a spat with Youtube so I couldn't find the official video.

Madonna, "Like a Virgin"

This wasn't Madonna's first hit, but it was the best. Is it about a girl who has been hurt before and finds real love for the first time or is Quentin Tarantino right about Madonna being a size queen?

Michael Jackson, "Thriller"

Other people might have gone with Eat It or Billie Jean. I just have to go with Thriller. When it came out It was like nothing else. At age 14 it was the biggest hype and media event I had ever seen. It even got national news coverage, which was rare at the time, there were only 4 networks that even had news at the time. It was like the Super Bowl, the World Series, 4th of July, Christmas, the Moon Landing, the end of World War 2... it was on every station, even the country ones, for a month. MTV played the video every hour, and it's a long video. The VJ's talked about it for the other 45 minutes. They almost stopped showing commercials.... almost.

Weird Al Yankovic, "Eat It"

Weird Al is the king of the parody and the 80's is when his best material came out. His parody of Michael Jackson's Beat It was the weird one at his finest. Eat it managed to sound just like the original but just twisted enough to make you question your hearing just for a moment. With lines like "Have a big dinner, have a light snack. If you don't like it you can't send it back" This song should be on any list of the best 80's songs.

Here are some penguins performing "Eat It."

The Message, "Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five"

From the days of boombox culture came The Message. It was the first rap song to bring attention to the plight of the inner city, and it did it with style. "It's like a jungle sometimes it makes me wonder how I keep from going under."

Rapture, "Blondie"

This song was the first time many people ever heard rap. The song tells a strange story of an alien who eats cars, bars and guitars. I'm not sure what Blondie was trying to say in this one, but it was a great song. Blondie was one of those bands that try to combine music, art and philosophy in an attempt to create a new culture based on some of the political principles of punk rock. The Doors were another. It didn't work out for either of them.

Her record label won't allow embedding, so here's a mashup of The Doors and Blondie, "Rapture Rider."

Wild Thing, "Tone Loc"

This song sampled "Jamie's Cryin'" by Van Halen. It was the first of two hits by rapper Tone Loc. Unfortunately the only thing worse than being a one hit wonder is being a two hit wonder. The guys with one hit get played on VH1 and on One Hit Wonder Weekends on the radio. The guys with two hits get forgotten.

Miami Vice Theme, "Jan Hammer"

Muy Caliente! This tropically influenced instrumental was played over the opening credits of Miami Vice. But it was also a huge radio hit for composer Jan Hammer. If life were a movie then this song would be the soundtrack of the middle 80's.

Scorpions, "Rock You Like a Hurricane"

They said they were going to rock you like a hurricane, and you could believe it with this huge sound. With a screaming wall of guitars and a huge drumbeat that sounded like the crack of doom, these guys from West Germany made you feel like a hurricane had hit you. This one should be played at maximum volume for the full face melting effect.

REM, "This One Goes Out to the One I Love"

REM's first big hit. It was the first time this college band, which had been touring for years, really got noticed by someone other than the critics. A lot of people think this is a love song, but it's not. It's really a downbeat song about a relationship that was "a simple prop to occupy my time."

Once again EMI won't allow embedding, so here's some guy in his parent's basement playing it on Guitar Hero World.

Bruce Springsteen, "Born in the USA"

This was not the patriotic song that everyone seemed to think it was. It was even used by Ronald Reagan in his 84 campaign. It's really about a guy who got sent to Vietnam instead of jail. When he gets back he can't find a job. It ends with the line, "I'm ten years down the road

Nowhere to run, ain't got nowhere to go."

The Go Gos, "We Got the Beat"

The first all girl band of the 80's featured four hot punky chicks from LA. They were also the first all girl band that played their own instruments and wrote their own songs. Other female bands had done one or the other but not both. When this song came out nothing had sounded like them before. They toured with both Madness and The Rolling Stones.

Here's a very early clip. Belinda Carlisle was just adorable with short hair and chubby cheeks.

The Bangles, "Walk Like an Egyptian"

This song had everyone doing that funky, sideways, Egyptian walk. Who can forget the lovely Susanna Hoffs and the way she moved her beautiful eyes in the video? This wasn't their only hit, but it was the biggest and the one for which they will always be remembered.

In Your Eyes, "Peter Gabriel"

This was on the Say Anything soundtrack a movie which defined love for Gen X, and for the next one, probably for the next as well. If Say Anything defined love, then "In Your Eyes" was the song that did it. Who can hear this song and not think of Loyd Dobler with his sad trenchcoat and puppy dog eyes, holding that boombox over his head as a tribute to his lost love?

The Wonderful Bai Ling

She can't sing.

She can't dance.

But this exquisite beauty from the orient doesn't mind playing the clown. ""That is part of the job... You have to sell magazines. Sometimes, as an actor, part of our job is to be a clown." She said, to Bai Ling She turns grown men into giggling fools. Watch her kiss the host of this local talkshow.

Those high cheekbones,lovely eyes, and sculpted ears make her look as if she is one of Tolkein's elves of Middle Earth, or an alien from the planet Sexonia.

Everyone loves Bai Ling!

Hot Tub Time Machine

Hot Tub Time Machine looks like a great movie. It stars John Cusack and the guy who plays Darrell in The Office and Chevy Chase. It's an 80's movie made in 2010. It's a story that sounds familiar. Four men get sent back in time to the 80's by a magical hot tub. That's really the whole story. I'm sure there will be much mockery and praise of the 80's, lessons will be learned, men will bond, love will be found and boobies will be seen. It looks pretty good, though. It's got John Cusack playing his usual grown up version of Loyd Dobler in Say Anything. Chevy Chase is a weird guy. Craig Robinson plays the cool token black guy. Rob Corddry from The Daily Show is the balding frat-guy d-bag.

Claims have been made that it's even based on a true story.

"A typical road trip weekend consists of partying, hooking up and going wild." Apparently as wild as a squirrel on Chernobyl Energy Drinks. Or at least that's what I learned from the trailers.

You'll like it, if you like that sort of thing. I do.
