Cookie Monster on SNL?

This is weird, but it definitely has promise.

The Ronnie Horror Show (Fridays, 1980)


Let me break this down for you: This is a 15-minute skit from the show "Fridays," which featured Michael Richards and Larry David, spoofing the Rocky Horror Picture Show and combining it with the then-recent election of Ronald Reagan to the presidency. Do you think you're ready for it?

You're not.

EDIT: 300th post!

Tron Shit


Y'all December 17 is coming soon. In the meantime, let's get excited for Tron: Legacy by looking at these neat Tron merchandizing items and fan-made collector's bits. This one is a Tron watch. So, if you ever wanted to know what to get me for Christmas.........do it or I'll kill you.

Island of the Dolls


This article details the life and work of Don Julian Santana, who once found the body of a drowned girl on the shores of the island his house was built upon. In order to appease her soul, he collected dolls and doll parts and hung them in the trees (hence the name "Island of the Dolls"). There's a lovely twist at the end, but you simply MUST go to the website and see the pictures to read about it.

Pripyat, Ukraine


(Last one today, Mimi; I swear!)
This is a link to a collection of photos from Pripyat, Ukraine, an abandoned city neglectfully not mentioned in the previous post. Pripyat was abandoned after the Chernobyl disaster in 1986. Wikipedia.

24 Tales of Ghost Towns and Abandoned Cities


(Sorry, Mimi)
This post on WebUrbanist gives a short write-up of several abandoned towns across the world. It's not very comprehensive, and doesn't give a lot of information or pictures, but hey, that's what Wikipedia is for, right? (Be sure to check out Kowloon Walled City, Hong Kong, pictured above.)
Thanks to Hipstercrite for bringing WebUrbanist to my attention.
EDIT: Also check out the Sanzhi, Taiwan, UFO Houses on Flickr.

Shatner Does It Again ("Fuck You" by Cee-Lo)


I promised myself that George Lopez could not ever appear on my blog, but lo and behold, there's his opposite-of-funny face.
Nevertheless, Shatner wows me again with his musical adaptation of Cee-Lo Green's "Fuck You". No, William Shatner; fuck you. And fuck her, too. (Her refers to Lopez. But I take back what I said about you last sentence; I only meant it referring to George Lopez. Seriously, fuck her.)

Circus (PBS)


Hadn't heard of this show before today before I turned on PBS and there it was. The program is incredible. I don't know if everyone is as fascinated by carnival folk as I am, but interesting they are. Check it out Wednesdays from 7:00 to 10:00 on PBS/LPB.
