Nickelodeon's Lost Halloween Film Cry Baby Lane

(YouTube Link)

Cry Baby Lane is a lost teenie horror film that was supposed to premiere on Nickelodeon in October, 2000 but was pulled from broadcast due to parental protest.

The story involves conjoined twins imprisoned by their father, and the teens that summon their spirits back from the dead to haunt the town, and even though it was supposed to air a mere twelve years ago it seems rather tame by today's standards.

Here, in all its made-for-television splendor, is the full length version of Cry Baby Lane so you can see what you've been missing!

A Beautiful Work Of Cake Art Named Zelda

Meet Zelda, a cake that's far too beautiful to be eaten, which is too bad because she actually sounds quite delicious:

Anatomical Barbie By Jason Freeny

Anatomical Barbie is not the sort of doll a little girl would enjoy putting up in her dollhouse, unless the girl in question wants to be a surgeon some day.

Created by artist and toy slicer Jason Freeny, it's all been exposed for the sake of seeing what makes Barbie tick, and I'll say one thing on her behalf- for a plastic doll she sure has a lot of guts!

Halloween Bearding Done Right - Female Edition

Women should definitely consider incorporating a beard into their Halloween costume as long as you go about it the right way, so you don't end up looking like someone who glued trimmed hairs onto their face!

Photo: ideath/Flickr

This gal looks amazing in her beard, because she applied her beard the hard way, one clump at a time, and paid attention to details so the whole thing looks uniform and realistic. Any sideshows missing a bearded lady? I think I just found her....

Photo: kshilcutt/Flickr

The bearded lady in this picture has taken the beard a bit too far, so she has a young Santa thing going on. It helps sell the realism if people can see your mouth, although she did a good job of matching the beard with the wig!

Photo: SanFranAnnie/Flickr

Female bearding- she's doing it all wrong! I'm sure she meant for her beard to look gross, but the whole thing looks very thrown together- the beard color doesn't match her hair, and you should always go for long, straight hairs and avoid using short and curly ones for obvious reasons...

Photo: Clover_1/Flickr

Parents are encouraged to put a beard on their little girl because, let's face it, kids in beards are adorably awesome.

Just make sure you don't go gluing anything to their face, and use a material that's not going to irritate their skin or you might end up with an unhappy trick-or-treater and a serious rash!

Sad Portraits Of Celebrity Impersonators

What is it about this portrait series by photographer Nicolas Silberfaden that makes them so touching?

Maybe it's because we only see impersonators when they're in character, and these photos show them as the vulnerable human beings they are beneath the costume.

Perhaps we actually expect them to act like the characters they're portraying at all times, even though we know they're all dressed up and playing a role.

Whatever it is that makes them so touching also makes me want to hunt down whoever made Superman cry and bop 'em in the nose!

Pop Art Tribute To Monet Made From Plastic Balls

What better place to set up an art installation paying tribute to Claude Monet than the beautiful town of Le Havre, where the forefather of impressionism spent his childhood?

The installation is called Pergola, and it's made from 90,000 plastic balls which are arranged over the grand pergola leading up to Le Havre's City Hall.

Here's more on this optical delight:

90,000 plastic balls are arranged into an image of the wisteria blooms that figure in many of the artist’s oeuvres. The balls come in five tones – an abstracted impressionist palette – and climb towards the abundant sunlight, creating an exuberant play of color, light and shadows underneath. As with many of the projects by Claude Cormier + Associés Inc., the deliberate insertion of the artificial shakes up preconceived ideas – but the installation also aims, more simply, to delight visitors.

Deadpool Versus Gangnam Style

(YouTube Link)

Don't bring Marvel's wackiest assassin Deadpool to the Gangnam Style party unless you want things to go b-a-n-a-n-a-s!

Check out Deadpool's trip around town, as he dances his spandex-clad butt off, parodies the original Gangnam Style video by Psy and entertains the interwebs at the same time.

It's a good thing Deadpool doesn't die, because his superheroic brand of comedy makes life worth living. Is that an overstatement, or what?! *grin*

Muppets Infected With The Zombie Virus

It's with a deep sense of sadness that I must report the untimely death, and zombified rebirth, of our beloved Muppets.

Turns out fleece puppets aren't immune to the zombie virus after all, and their thirst for human blood is insatiable because they don't have any guts!

Illustrator John Defreest has given us a glimpse of the undead Muppets, and the Muppet Show will never be the same again...*sigh*

Halloween Bearding Done Right - Male Edition

A beard is often used with Halloween costumes as a whimsical accessory, or to help complete the character costume you've decided to sport.

But if you're going to use a beard with your costume make sure you're doing it right, or else you may end up looking like some weirdo who glued a wad of hair to his face!

Photo: luf sugarskull/Flickr

Check out the guy in pic 1- he's grown a natural beard out to complement his bearded lady costume. Not a bad move, but you may be growing that sucker out for months and it will itch like mad!

Photo: Kim Scarborough/Flickr

Pic 2 has the same costume idea going on, but he's using a fake beard which is easy to remove when you get hot under the collar. As long as it stays on all night you've completed your costume and you can stay clean shaven. Yay facial comfort!

Photo: zoomar/Flickr

The guy in pic 3 has created a crazy custom monkey beard, which is almost a costume in itself and is sure to make you a hit at any Halloween function. Oh monkey beard, you complete me...

Wine Cork Portraits By Scott Gundersen

Somebody must have told Scott Gundersen to put a cork in it when he started his artistic career because he's been working almost exclusively in corks ever since.

Scott creates giant sized mosaic portraits from photo reference, and his works have a surprising amount of detail for such a minimal color palette.

Each piece takes thousands of corks to complete, and some measure in at an amazing ten feet tall.

It's doubtful Scott could drink enough wine in a lifetime to supply enough corks for his art, so he must go around town shaking down every wino he sees!

Creepy Lantern Fish Lamp Really Lights Up A Room

If you're looking for a particularly creepy, albeit unique, addition to your home then take a look at this remarkable junkyard lantern fish lamp.

It's made from recycled materials, like bike parts, shovels and knives, by Etsy seller Justin LaDoux, a guy who clearly likes home furnishings to be full of that ever elusive wow factor.

The only problem I have with this incredible piece is the price, a whopping $8,000, because spending that kind of money on a lamp seems like a crying shame...

Extremely Lucky Bald Eagle Receives A 3D Printed Beak

Beauty is one of the luckiest bald eagles alive today, because not only has she survived being shot in the face by poachers, she now sports a very chic, very modern 3d printed beak for her chewing pleasure.

The good folks at the Birds Of Prey Northwest sanctuary never gave up on Beauty, determined to do whatever they can for her instead of resorting to euthanasia.

Here's more on this heartwarming story:

Raptor specialist Jane Fink Cantwell, who dresses like Indiana Jones, refused to take "dead bald eagle" for an answer. She joined forces with mechanical engineer Nate Calvin of Kinetic Engineering Group, and together with other scientists, engineers, and even a dentist, they designed a nylon polymer beak that would perfectly replace Beauty's lost upper mandible.

Calvin developed the new beak using a 3-D modeling program, then used a 3-D printer to fabricate it. After an arduous procedure to attach her prosthetic, Beauty was able to eat, drink, and preen herself on her own.

A Tribute To Minimalist Halloween Decorations



Decorating for Halloween doesn't have to be an overblown affair, sometimes putting out fewer props means you show your love of All Hallows' Eve in other ways.

Other times less is less, and too few decorations indicates a lack of imagination and a fear of putting forth too much effort.

The folks who put together this gallery of minimal Halloween decorations would like you to know that they're taking notes on the choices you make- they're watching, and if you cheap out on the decor you'd better step it up with the candy!
