Jason Rental - When It Comes To Customer Service He's A Total Hack!


Jason Rentals by WereAllMadDesigns

When visiting Crystal Lake please be sure to be respectful of the campgrounds, because the Vorhees family has been overseeing the grounds for decades and they don't take kindly to messes! And if you're thinking about heading out on the water you should visit Jason Rentals for all your boating and chaining needs. Jason will be happy to rent you whatever you need, and for a bit extra he'll even take you on a private tour of the grounds, and show you where he left the last group of tourists hanging around...

Take a trip to the dark side with this Jason Rentals t-shirt by WereAllMadDesigns, and whatever you do make sure you return your rentals on time, because Jason's late fees will cost you an arm and a leg!

Internet Trolls – The Halloween Musical

(YouTube link)

What’s the scariest monster you can think of? That’s right, online trolls! And to add to the horror, they now have their own Broadway-style musical number, courtesy of AVbytes. As you’d expect, they are fairly proud of the chaos, discord, and misery they leave across the web. The lyrics to this song are posted at the YouTube page. You can enjoy the song, but remember, don't feed the trolls! -via Laughing Squid

Her “Glowy Zoey” LED costume changes color in response to sound, and has Minnie Mouse ears for her trip to Disneyland!

Bacon Cheeseburger-Filled Donut

Behold the Bacon Cheeseburger D’oh Nut! This is the same kind of innovation and daring that sent America to the moon. It resides among the chefs at PYT, a restaurant in Philadelphia. Their sweet and salty wonder is a donut stuffed with ground-up cheeseburger, sprinkled with bacon bits, and glazed with sugar.

I would like to take two of these donuts and use them as buns for a cheeseburger. That would be true love because, PYT tells us, “A burger is when a bun gives meat a hug.”

Stories Behind Beautiful Colors in Artistic Masterpieces

Burial of Atala / Anne-Louis Girodet (1808)

Artists have experimented with color in myriad ways for centuries. As art evolved, descriptive names for colors were created, often based upon the elements used to mix them. Author Victoria Finlay has a new book to be released on November 1 entitled The Brilliant History of Color in Art. The book provides backstories of how these colors came to be named, as well as how they were made and the artists who frequently used them.

One toxic example is the color "lead white," as seen in Burial of Atala by Girodet, pictured above. Lead white was so named because it was made from lead. It was also used as a cosmetic by upper class, fashionable women in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The lead makeup killed women such as Maria Gunning, the Countess of Coventry, who died in 1760 at age 27.

Lead white was made by stacking containers of vinegar and lead and applying manure to the tops of the containers. After months of this process, the lead acetate converted to lead carbonate, eventually creating flakes of the substance. The color was frequently used in 17th century Dutch portraits.


Read ten more (abbreviated) backstories of beautiful colors in art here. Finlay's book, with the stories in full, can be purchased here.

Infuriating Mouse Design Requires Full-Body Movement to Use a Computer


(Photo: Govert Flint)

Some people hate the cubicle lifestyle and the sedentary work of computer-centered jobs.

After I graduated from college, I worked in a warehouse for 3 years while attending graduate school. If I was ever susceptible to this perspective, 3 years of manual labor permanently inoculated me from it. Sitting down in an air conditioned office for 8 hours is totally awesome.

So I would flip out if I walked into my office and found one of Govert Flint’s Dynamic Chairs. Margaret Rhodes of Wired of says that using it “is like attending a new-age Pilates class.” You’ll get quite a workout:

Scroll around by shifting your body’s weight from side to side. Sensors in the seat detect the pressure and angle of your tush and communicate that data to three accelerometers that measure that movement on an axis, and translate it into activity on the computer’s screen. To click, kick up your right leg. Sensors will detect that motion too. For the time being, arms and hands are unencumbered, for typing, but Flint imagines plenty of future possibilities there. (That’s why the video that accompanies Flint’s thesis shows actors using their arms.)


(Video Link)

The movements of ballet dancers inspired Flint’s design. Their hip movements in particular are ideal:

Flint also spoke with a physiologist at the ballet who pointed out that human hips weren’t designed to stay rooted in a chair. There’s a lot of cartilage in there that’s meant to allow walking, hence the hip rotations that let users scroll.

I’m curious about any productivity studies conducted on these chairs. As previously noted, treadmill desks may make you healthier, but can impair the accuracy of your work.

Costco To Start Carrying 93 Inch Bear Next Month

Image Credit: Claudia Augello, Johnny Sanchez, Scott Yamamura / Seattle Children’s Hospital

As if walking out of Costco with your giant tub of mayo wasn't weird (yet practical) enough, now you might find yourself walking out of Costco with a bear that almost 100 inches tall. I know this is weird, but like, how can you even be mad? Those bears are going to make whoever gets them very happy (as long as they don't live in a studio apartment) and they are only $179.99.

I do realize one hundred eighty dollars may sound steep for a stuffed bear, but would you think that if said bear was being given to a sick child, or being used to re-conciliate a marriage?

If you look at it that way, that is quite reasonable, actually. And don't even act like your face wouldn't light up if someone got you one of those, because we all know it would. All of ours would.

That is what makes it so awesome.

What to Do When You See Something on the Internet You Disagree with

Occasionally, as you surf the internet, you may encounter thoughts and opinions that are different from your own. You should have a plan in place so that you can respond properly at the time. Some people feel a duty to correct faulty assertions. What will be the outcome of such an encounter? Julia Lepetit and Andrew Bridgman of Dorkly offer an interactive game on the subject.

Personally, to prepare for such a disaster, I keep a large supply of ponies just one click away.

Partial Solar Eclipse Thursday

This Thursday, October 23rd, 2014, the moon will pass in front of the sun without to ally blocking it out. This partial solar eclipse will be visible to almost everyone in the United States and Canada.  

On the left is an animation showing the view from above the Earth, looking down on the U.S. during the eclipse. The curved line sweeping around clockwise is the terminator, the day/night line. The big gray distorted circle is the physical shadow of the Moon. You can see that over time it moves roughly eastward and southward, the combination of its motion and the Earth’s spin. If you live anywhere inside the path of that shadow, you’ll see an eclipse. The closer you are to the center of the shadow, the more of the Sun will be blocked.

Phil Plait has more on the eclipse, and some safety advice on how to observe it at Bad Astronomy. It looks like I’ll be able to see it, just before the sun sets over the western horizon.

Man Falls off Pier While Taking a Selfie

A reporter from a Lebanese news program is interviewing a man standing on a pier. Behind him, another fellow thinks this is a great time to take a selfie with his smartphone. Or he's trying to record the scene in front of him. Anyway, he's not watching where he's walking and goes for a swim.

20 Things You Might Not Know About The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air

The Fresh Prince of Bel Air was broadcast from 1990 to 1996, and featured the catchiest opening theme of its era. When you look at the acclaim its star Will Smith has achieved in the field of acting -25 feature films so far- it’s hard to believe he was ever a greenhorn. But going into the sitcom in 1990, no one could predict what would happen in the future. Here's a little of what did happen then:

1. Will Smith only agreed to star in the show because he was in serious debt to the IRS.

Smith gained widespread fame as the rapper The Fresh Prince, and with that fame came a significant jump in income. Unfortunately, Smith didn't manage his money wisely or pay enough in income taxes, and he owed the government a whopping $2.8 million. The IRS seized most of his belongings, including his income. The Fresh Prince almost declared bankruptcy—until producer Quincy Jones picked him to star in a new series, and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was born.

2. And he had to pay up.

The IRS forced Smith to pay them 70 percent of his salary over the first three seasons.

3. He was almost a total novice.

Smith only had one other TV production under his belt—as a t-shirt salesman on an ABC after school special—when he accepted a role on The Fresh Prince, and is embarrassed by his earliest performances on the show. He had never been formally trained as an actor, and—in some cases—his lack of experience was painfully obvious. "I was trying so hard," he said. "I would memorize the entire script, then I'd be lipping everybody's lines while they were talking. When I watch those episodes, it's disgusting. My performances were horrible."

There are a lot more great tidbits in the list of 20 Things You Might Not Know About The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air at mental_floss, such as Geoffrey’s full name, the inspiration for the Carlton dance, and the show’s various guest stars.

Geek Singularity: Benedict Cumberbatch Dressed as Sherlock, Looking at a Poster of Himself as Star Trek’s Khan


(Photo: Robert Viglasy)

Obviously this should inspire a crossover in which Sherlock Holmes enters the Star Trek universe to hunt down Khan, who has escaped from his cryogenic pod.

Or, alternately, Khan enters the Sherlock universe, and switches places with Holmes. John Watson and Bilbo Baggins must determine who is who.

How Little Girls See Barbie

People worry that Barbie dolls with their unreal figures present an unattainable ideal for a woman’s appearance, which can be stifling to a young girls’s ego. But the kids who really play with Barbies are typically between 3 and 7 years old. I can totally relate to this. Relatives would buy my daughters Barbies left and right, and my kids would cut their hair, paint them, draw tattoos on them, amputate a few limbs, and they even made one into a male because they didn’t have enough Ken dolls. This story is from John McNamee at Pie Comic.

The Fifty Weirdest Movies Ever Made

James Woods and Deborah Harry in Videodrome

Flavorwire assembled a list of their nominations for the fifty weirdest films in existence. While "weird" is subjective, I think it's safe to say that the films they listed would pass the weird test of most people out there.

One of the more mainstream titles is David Cronenberg's Videodrome. Certainly a film I will never forget watching for the first time. Seeing James Woods catch on to the Videodrome secret was shocking, somewhat repulsive and great, all at the same time. 

See the list of all 50 films here. Weigh in with your opinions of their selections in comments, if you're so inclined. Do you have any other suggestions?

This Dress Is Made of Chocolate


(Photo: Splash News)

This dress was made for the UK’s Chocolate Week.

In other news: the United Kingdom has a Chocolate Week. What does that mean? I choose to avoid further investigation, lest it damage my fantasy of a week-long celebration of chocolate by the people of the UK.

For Chocolate Week, Caroline McCall, a wardrobe designer for Downton Abbey, made this Art Deco-inspired dress. It took 3 months and 132 pounds of chocolate, a few of which presumably did not make it into the actual dress but were judiciously expended in the creative process.

Hazard Minion - The Bedo Spells Disaster


Hazard Minion by Io Vorro

The Minions had installed a new security alert system in the compound, and it was driving Gru mad! Their annoying creation sounded just like those little buggers, and the amount of accidents caused by Minions meant that alarm system kept ringing all day and brought the fact that those little yellow pill shaped people he had working for him were extremely accident prone! Gru wondered what they would do if they didn't have him around to clean up their messes as he heard the alarm sound again, and soon the alarm sound was joined by the sound of screaming Minions...

You'd have to be bananas not to bring home this Hazard Minion t-shirt by Io Vorro, it's the perfect way to show the world you're a big time Minion fan...and a bit accident prone!

"Ghost" Portraits From the Early Twentieth Century

Englishman William Hope worked as a carpenter until he realized that there were scams to be performed and money to be made in fooling grief-stricken individuals and families who were desperate for a supernatural sign that their deceased loved ones were at peace. By 1905, Hope's career in "spirit photography" was in full swing, as he shot portraits and double exposed the sitters with the "ghosts" of their family members. 

Even Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was a fan, and he wrote The Case for Spirit Photography in support of Hope’s duplicitous business. In the end, Hope's trickery was exposed in 1922. I know they're hoky, but there's still something unsettling and creepy about them to me. Read more about Hope and see the rest of this photo collection here.

Alien Director Ridley Scott To Make An Ebola Miniseries

Image Credit: Gage Skidmore

Brilliant director Ridley Scott is taking a stab at adapting the terrifying 1994 book about an Ebola outbreak called The Hot Zone into a TV minseries. Not sure if this has been green lit because of the fact that Ebola is all up in our news and our social media and our subconsciousness, but you can read more about the miniseries at WeGotThisCovered. Also: The Hot Zone author Richard Preston talks about a possible update to his 1994 bestseller in the New York Times.

The reality is, I loved the book (even though it is super scary) and I think Ridley Scott is brilliant (I am even one of the seven people who don't hate Prometheus), so as long as I have not died of Ebola by the time the show comes out, I will definitely watch it.

I just totally doomed myself to die of Ebola, huh?

Dang.

A Freak Show of Baked Goods

The TV series American Horror Story: Freak Show is premiering tonight in Britain on Fox UK. To promote the show, Miss Cakehead was commissioned to bake up some ghoulish goodies! She worked with food artist Jacqui Kelly to create "freaky fairground treats," like deep-fried rat on a stick, toffee apples with teeth, hot dogs with severed fingers in them, doughnuts filled with spiders, and toffee popcorn infested with creepy-crawlies. Ew!
