Prince William and Kate Middleton refrigerator

image

 
Okay, this is just getting silly now. First there was the Prince William and Kate Middleton condoms from Crown Jewels, and now there’s a freakin’ wedding souvenir refrigerator distributed by GE! Who in their right mind would spend their hard-earned money on this monstrosity?

The Pint-sized Mark E. Smith: Coming to a bar near you

image
 
This must be on some “100 Things To Do Before You Die” list - have a beer named after you. Something Mark E Smith can tick off, as The Fall’s legendary frontman has just had an Indian Pale Ale named after him.

Produced by Northern Brewing, an artisan brewery in Nantwich, Mark E. Smith IPA is currently only available in one bar in the UK, the Snooty Fox in Islington, London.

It was Snooty Fox’s owners Nicole Gale and Jonathan Tingle, who commissioned MES IPA for their “Hit the North Festival”– (also named after the Fall song – which is celebrating northern beer and music. As Nicole explained to the Manchester Evening News:

“Jonathan is a massive, massive Fall fan so we thought it was only right to name a beer after the great man. It was the most popular beer at the festival.”

The Snooty Fox sold their order of 72 pints in just two hours.

Mike Hill, director of Northern, said: “I had never heard of him to be honest. We prefer Northern Soul, which inspired the names of most of our beers.”

If you want a taste of Manchester’s famous son, then have your local put in an order for Mark E. Smith IPA.

70s Porn Posters

Souperman, 1976
 
Germany’s Der Spiegel posted a pretty good collection of porn posters from the 70s and 80s with a detailed breakdown of each film. To see more posters, go to Der Spiegel and use Google Translate.

Oh, and here are a few I found amusing:

According to this ridiculous 70s ad, “Hear Muffs don’t look like headphones: they look more like a giant fuzzy doughnut with a bite missing.” They also make you look like a damn fool.

From youtube user Kutiman comes this very nice tune made from many disparate and unrelated individual performance clips. Ingenious, inspired, warm and fuzzy, even. I love the variety of room sounds captured mostly by cheap webcam mics and flip cameras. Even better, the composer provides links to every clip he used. It’s tempting to make another piece of music from the same group of clips !
 

this video is made of videos i found and really enjoyed watching ..
there is no intention to offend anyone this is truly from the love to
music..

I’ve researched the heck out of this and can’t find the artist who created this amusing image of Ozzy Osbourne as JC. If anyone knows, speak up and I’ll give proper credit.

BTW, I did find a rather odd St. Ozzy Prayer Candle on Etsy by ArtsyChica. If you light it, the Virgin Mary will bring you drugs. It looks like they’re all sold out, tho.

Over on Oli Beale’s website there’s an amusing post about he how he tortures his friend James on Facebook. Oli explains: “I like going on my friend’s Facebook page, taking photos of him, changing his face slightly then putting them back up on Facebook. He doesn’t like me doing this.”

The results are pretty freakin’ funny. For a good laugh, go to OLI + ALEX to see more ‘shopped images of James.

Okay, my mind was pretty much blown by The Justice League XXX trailer. With a storyline of “When a great evil threatens porn’s very existence, The Justice League of Porn Stars Heroes comes together to battle The Legion of Poon”...  what could go wrong?
