A Reporter Interviews Reformed Zombies In "Less Than Human"

Zombie lore has changed quite a bit since the first Night Of The Living Dead film, and zombies have gone from being strictly undead eating machines to humans afflicted with a life-altering virus.

That means if and when a cure is found for their condition zombies may be able to rejoin human society, that is, if they're no longer seen as a threat:

In the aftermath of a zombie outbreak, zombies are cured and exiled to secluded camps. There has been talk about rehabilitating post-zombies back into society. Steve, the journalist reporting on the case, thinks the zombies still pose a threat to society. He ventures into one of these camps to prove to the world that rehabilitation is out the question.

"Less Than Human" was created by a team of students at The Animation Workshop in Denmark, and it has certainly left me hungry to see more!

We Want Your Soul - Kreepy Kitties


We Want Your Soul by DeepFriedArt

Do you ever feel like your cat is looking at you funny? Have you felt like your cat was trying to stare straight into your soul when you're not looking, only to find your feeling was correct and your cat was indeed staring at you? Don't freak out when you hear this- your cat might be trying to steal your soul. Cats are born with certain magical abilities we humans can hardly understand, and their main source of power is human souls. So as long as you appease your cat and keep them happy, and try not to let them anywhere near you while you're sleeping, then you should be okay. But if their stare starts to make you feel woozy, or you feel a bit short of breath after your cat was sitting on your lap, then you may want to consider changing your name and moving far, far away before your kitty can steal your soul!

Make cat lovers smile wherever you go with this We Want Your Soul t-shirt by DeepFriedArt, it's a purr-fect way to warn humans about what those soul sucking kittehs are up to!

Zootopia Filmmakers Create Animal Parody Posters for Oscar Nominees

The Academy Awards will be bestowed on movies from 2016 this coming Sunday night, so it's time for parodies that double as promotions for the Oscars. There's a scene in the movie Zootopia (which is nominated for Best Animated Feature Film of the Year) in which one character sells bootleg movies, which are movies somewhat familiar to us but star animals and have animal-pun titles.  

You’ll find titles like Wreck-It Rhino, Meowana and Pig Hero 6 in the pile of bootleg movies, showing us what the animal versions of those movies would be like in the thriving metropolis of anthropomorphic creatures. Now the Zootopia directors Rich Moore and Byron Howard, as well as screenwriter Jared Bush, have created parody posters for some of the Oscar nominees who will be vying for an award when the awards are passed on this Sunday.  They’ve done six that are pretty amazing.

You can see all six of those posters at TVOM.

The Fascinating Love Lives of Terrible Dictators

From misogynists to sex addicts, dictators are obviously unbalanced people and their sex lives only serve to prove how unhinged they are. Over on TopTenz you can learn about ten dictators and their torrid sex lives. For example, even though Mussolini had tons of mistresses, he loathed women -with the exception of one particular mistress. And Spanish dictator Francisco Franco was celibate most of his life, but did seem to have a thing for his mother.

10 Terrible Early Drafts of Villains

It takes a bit of tweaking to get a character right for a movie, especially if it's science fiction or a comic book adaptation. What looks good on paper often doesn't translate all that well to the screen. So it's common that early drafts are tested out and changed considerably before production. Sometimes those early ideas were just plain stupid.

(YouTube link)

But thanks to archived art and screen tests, we can see what those early and awful ideas were like. Aren't you glad they tried again and again until they got it right …or at least better? -via the A.V. Club

The Small French Diner That Was Accidentally Awarded a Michelin Star

One of the greatest awards a restaurant can earn is a Michelin star, but in the case of Bourges' Bouche à Oreille, the award was a real surprise -largely because the restuarant is simply a small neighborhood diner. While the diner is good, it's by no means a gourmet, Michelin-star-level establishment. 

As it turns out the star was awarded by mistake as there was a mix up between the Bouche à Oreille in Bourges and the Bouche à Oreille in nearby Boutervilliers. The error was fixed after two days, but during that short period, the little greasy spoon was swamped with diners looking for the next great Michelin restaurant.

You can read most about the poor little diner and the fancy restaurant nearby over at Telegraph.

Trading Cards For Fictional Athletes By Cuyler Smith

In the world of sports trading cards professional athletes get all the love, but what about all those professional actors who play athletes in movies and TV shows? Don't they deserve their own commemorative trading cards too?

Illustrator Cuyler Smith clearly agrees, because he has created artwork for two different sets of trading cards starring the stars in their sportiest roles.

There's a card for Danny McBride as Kenny Powers, Keanu Reeves as Shane Falco, Michael J. Fox as "Teen Wolf" Scott Howard, and Chevy Chase as Ty Webb in Caddyshack 1 and 2 too.

Na-na-na-na indeed sir! Cuyler's way too cool illustrations for Trading Cards 2, the trading card set of my unathletic dreams, is currently being shown at Gallery 1988 now through March 7th.

They'll sweep you off your feet!

Cat Tries To Steal Food From Dog

This slow motion video shows us in excruciating detail what happens when you interfere with a dog getting a treat. Notice the looks of extreme anticipation on their faces. The cat is calculating some kind of subterfuge. Then a french fry is finally flung in their direction.

(YouTube link)

Yeah, that's what they say about the best laid plans. At least the cat will be able to explain his injury as a "Lab accident." -via Boing Boing

This Is What Happens When Escalators Acquire A Taste For Shoes

(Image Link)

As a child my sister was terrified of escalators and I never understood why, until one of my friends almost lost a toe to some particularly sharp teeth on the edge of an escalator.

He was wearing flip flops at the time so the argument could be made that it was as much his fault as the escalator's, but seeing his toe after that incident made me switch to stairs for years to come.

(Image Link)

Escalators are safe until they decide to drop out beneath your feet or gobble up your shoe, so ride that moving staircase with caution, folks- and keep all your toes where they belong!

How the BBC makes Planet Earth look like a Hollywood movie

If you've been watching the BBC TV series Planet Earth II, you've no doubt been amazed at the wildlife footage. It almost looks like a Hollywood action film -a blockbuster, even. A lot of that is due to new filmmaking technology.

(YouTube link)

The BBC has been making nature documentaries for 60 years, and they have steadily gotten better as the cameras and equipment get better. This video from Vox gives the short history of that technology and how it can be used to film fascinating creatures that don't follow a script. This is "part 1 of 3," so we can look forward to more behind-the-scenes looks at how Planet Earth was made. -via Tastefully Offensive

What's The Difference Between A Coffin And A Casket?

People use the words coffin and casket interchangeably when talking about funeral arrangements, but morticians know there's more than just a price difference between the two-the difference is in the shape and function.

Coffins are the octagonal burial containers made wider at the shoulder and tapered at the feet to fit the body, and they're used pretty much exclusively for burial.

But by the mid-19th century undertakers had become funeral directors, and they needed something more luxurious and showy than a coffin for viewing purposes- so the casket was created.

(Image Link)

Caskets are lined and typically rectangular shaped burial containers with hinged lids and decorative elements, and nowadays caskets are often custom made to suit the deceased to a T.

Pearl The Goat Is In Love With The UPS Man

Goats are interesting critters with fascinating minds and bold personalities, and that's why they're popular pets both on and off the ranch.

Sadly, some goats are treated poorly by humans, but if they're as lucky as Pearl the goat they end up in a rescue center like the Gentle Barn in Tennessee, where they can meet new, and much nicer, human friends.

And even though Pearl was abused by her former owner she still has lots of love to give to her favorite human friend- the UPS man.

Horrible Stories of Children in Restaurants

I'm far from the person who believes no one should take children to a restaurant as I've seen plenty of well behaved kids eating out, but we've all seen those monster children at restaurants whose parents completely ignore them. But the worst kid you've ever seen while dining out probably doesn't compare at all to the terrible youngsters in this Thrillist article. While all the stories are pretty good, the last one really emphasizes how terrible some parents are while dining out with their offspring: 

"I was way too busy to take time away from my other tables to escort this girl to the bathroom and I also did not really feel comfortable taking a young child and 'helping her' in the bathroom. I mean, what if this involved wiping and such? I let her know that I was sorry, but I needed to start bringing the food out for the table and did not have time to help her daughter. I should add that, at least to appearances, there was no obvious physical disability that would have prevented this lady from taking her own daughter to the bathroom. Not to mention, there are 13 other people at the table -- who know this child to some extent -- who could also have helped if needed.

And that's just the beginning of the awfulness. You can read the rest of the story -and all the others at Thrillist.

Guy Will Eat a Picture of Jason Segel Every Day Until Segel Eats a Picture of HIm

There are a lot of weird people out there on the internet, but every now and then you find a new type of weirdness you may never have encountered before. Today is one of those days.

(Video Link)

That's because this brave stupid genius utterly insane man has promised to eat a picture of Jason Segel every day until Jason Segel eats a picture of him in return. He's hashtagged his campaign #EatMyFaceSegel.

(Video Link)

Some people think he's just trying to become internet famous, but he certainly seems to be legitimately obsessed with the actor, even getting a tattoo of his name yesterday, which was the fourth day of his project so far.

Why Cartoon Characters Wear Gloves

When cartoons were wholly crafted by hand animators used all kinds of tricks to speed up the process, and one of their tricks made a character's hands more visible, emotive and easier to animate-they put gloves on 'em.

This small change made a world of difference for early animators who were discovering rounder was better in a character design, and simplification saved precious time during production.

(YouTube Link)

This toon-tastic video by Vox shows how gloves became an iconic part of a cartoon's character design, and how Mickey's gloves started it all.

In Loco Presidentis: Who's In Charge Here?

This Presidents Day article is from the book Uncle John's Bathroom Reader Plunges Into the Presidency.

You probably wouldn’t let the unconscious, anesthetized,  or generally incapacitated mind the store, but  would you let them mind the country?

It seems like a necessary and not terribly difficult thing to do—make sure someone is always running the country. But it took U.S. lawmakers nearly 200 years to get most of the kinks out of the presidential succession process. Not until the 25th Amendment to the Constitution was passed in 1967 was the procedure for replacing an incapacitated president clarified. So what happened before that? Well, the government sort of made things up as it went along.

THAT DEPENDS ON WHAT THE MEANING OF "PRESIDENT" IS

The first real test of the succession process came when William Henry Harrison died after only a month in office. After delivering his inauguration speech in cold, windy weather without an over-coat, Harrison caught a cold that quickly turned into pneumonia. Within a month he was dead.

The Constitution said that given the president's death, his powers and duties should go to the vice president, who at that time was John Tyler. But not everyone was sure that Tyler actually became president. While he might have the president’s powers and duties, was it really the same thing as being president? Wasn’t he only acting, so to speak? Tyler didn’t think so. He quickly had himself sworn in as president and even gave an inauguration speech at the ceremony.

Ten Of The Oldest Cities In The World

Every time I travel through California I'm reminded of how young the cities in my state are compared to cities like Boston and NYC, let alone when compared to ancient cities like Athens, Greece.

But even though cities like Los Angeles and San Diego are only a couple of hundred years old there's a city about 2000 miles south of California that has been around for over 2500 years- Cholula, Mexico.

Cholula was home to the Olmecs, Toltecs and Aztecs, and when the town was conquered by Hernán Cortés and his Conquistadors he called it "the most beautiful city outside Spain".

The small colonial town of 60,000 is best known for Tlachihualtepetl, the Great Pyramid of Cholula, which is the largest pyramid in the world and the largest archaeological pyramid site in the New World.

Cholula has definitely seen some epic battles in its day, but those battles cannot compare to the wars fought in and around Plovdiv, Bulgaria.

Plovdiv dates back to at least 4000 BCE, and as one of the oldest cities in Europe it has seen its fair share of invaders, conflict and resurrection, traces of which can be seen in the city's 39-foot thick cultural layers.

The Romans, Greeks, Persians, Celts, Goths, Huns, Slavs, Turks and Ottomans have all invaded and/or conquered Plovdiv throughout its storied history, each one contributing to the city's history like a patch on a quilt.

Plants You Should Always Grow Together In The Garden

Too much sun, too little water, bugs, poor quality soil and a lack of fertilization are some of the main reasons why fruits and veggies fail to grow in the garden, but did you know what we grow together matters too?

It turns out plant pairing can be just as important as where, when and how you grow, so start planting the right stuff side-by-side and reap the rewards!

Sweet smelling roses attract pests, so grow some pungent garlic next to your roses and repel those pests with the delicious power of nature.

Nematodes (roundworms) attack melons at the root, but growing marigolds next to your melons can be as effective as chemical treatments at controlling those pests- and they look pretty too!

Everybody loves to grow fresh tomatoes in the garden, but did you know tomatoes can be a cabbage's best friend?

Diamondback moth larvae love to munch on cabbage leaves but tomato plants are repellant to the larvae, so grow tomatoes and cabbage together to keep your leaves from getting all chewed up.

Executive Order 9066

Today is the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 9066, issued on February 19, 1942, which allowed the U.S. government to inter Japanese-Americans, German-Americans and Italian-Americans in camps for the duration of the war. Around 120,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry were removed from their West Coast homes and taken to internment camps.

(YouTube link)

The above government newsreel was made in 1943. At the National Archives' Unwritten Record Blog, you can read about the internment project and see an 18-minute 1944 color documentary.  

At The New Yorker, you can see Bill Manbo's rare color photographs of his internment camp.

At NPR's Code Switch, you can see photographs of the internment from three different photographers which very different agendas: Dorothea Lange, who wanted to convey the unfairness of the order; Ansel Adams, who depicted the internees as patriotic and cooperative volunteers; and Toyo Miyatake, who was himself an internee. -via Metafilter

A New Novel Reveals The Fate Of Jar Jar Binks After Revenge Of The Sith

Ever since he made his last big screen appearance in Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith Jar Jar Binks has been the butt of many jokes, and a few fan theories even speculate the Gungan may be a Sith Lord in disguise.

Mashable received an advanced copy of Chuck Wendig's new novel Star Wars Aftermath: Empire's End and found out that fan theory hit the Meesa right on the Binks- because Jar Jar was working for the Empire after all.

(Image Link)

In Empire's End a young refugee runs into Jar Jar, who is now a street performer, and the Gungan opens up to the kid about his dark past:

"Jar Jar makin some uh-oh mistakens," the Gungan says, explaining why he isn't wanted anywhere either. "Desa hisen Naboo tink I help the uh-oh Empire." He stares into the distance, suggesting he knows more than he's saying.

I knew that little bastard stank worse than Dagobah!

Forgotten Fortune Found in Recycled TV

An unnamed man in Bolsover, Ontario, received an inheritance back in the 1980s. He hid $100,000 of it, in $50 bills, inside a television set. Then he forgot where he put it. Some time over the next 30 years, he gave the TV set to a friend, who used it until about a year ago, when it was sent to Global Electric Electronic Processing (GEEP) in Barrie, Ontario, for recycling. There the TV sat until last month, when it was taken apart. Employees were surprised to find a box full of cash.

Barrie police reunited a 68-year-old man from Bolsover, Ont., a village of about 400 people in the Kawartha Lakes region, with the cash, using banking records from 1985 to trace the owner. Police did not release his name because of privacy concerns.

“This is a unique situation where this large quantity of money was missing without anyone knowing it was missing,” Const. Nicole Rodgers said. “He hadn’t even realized with the police officers sitting in his house that they were speaking of the cash box with his money in it.

“In his mind, he thought it was still somewhere else in his house.”

There must be a safer place to keep one's savings, like maybe a mattress. Read more on the story at the Calgary Herald. -via Dave Barry
