I hope you don’t think any less of me for posting a cute animal video. It’s something I never do, but good gawd I couldn’t resist sharing this with you, dear reader. Kind of a cool way to start off the day.

Deliverance doggy style.

I’m not a big “skull art” fan, but I dig this photograph of a wee butterfly (or is that a moth?) landing inside the eye socket of a human skull.

The image, by photographer Marko Popadic, is called Oko (Polish for “eye”).

What I learned from this video: Never ever, under any circumstances, call a cow or a bull “bro” ‘cause things will turn all Blair Witch Project real fast.

Warning: Dead cow carcass and some F-bombs.

Oh for the love of all that is good in the world, it’s Jonathan Richman and Lil Bub

Richman and Bub
Don’t you love it when wonderful people find each other? Bub’s dude said “They telepathically shared meditation techniques”. Of course they did.
 
Of all the proto-punk auteurs and of all the famous Internet cats, there is no more potent combination that that of Jonathan Richman and Lil Bub.

There will be an impulse by many to infantilize this moment in glorious Internet cat/music history, the famously earnest Richman, Lil Bub with her adorable physical anomalies. But I maintain this is no less than a beacon! A sign that there is goodness in this world, and that we’re just beginning to live.

Chewbacca


 
Redditor gweebah posted this photo of a dog (at least I think it’s a dog) sticking its head out of a car window.

As Redditor theropod points out “Looks like Chewbacca if he stuck his head out of the Millennium Falcon’s window…”

Indeed it does.

Dog to have been euthanized because it was gay!

Some witless asshole dropped off his male pitbull/American bulldog mix at the Jackson Rabies Control Animal Shelter in Tennessee yesterday because he deemed his dog as “gay” for mounting another male dog (by that criteria ALL dogs would be “gay”!). Apparently the fucking idiot owner didn’t want a “gay dog.” The pooch, who displayed no signs of aggression, was scheduled to be euthanized today at 1pm!

Good news, though, a kind soul on Facebook who goes by the name “Jackson TN Euthanasia,” shared the hell out of this poor pup’s story and photo and got this doggie a new home. The dog was lucky, but the old owner will probably always be stupid.

Gerry Anderson: Creator of ‘Thunderbirds’, ‘Captain Scarlet’ and ‘UFO’ has died

gerry_anderson_1929_2012
 
Gerry Anderson the creator of Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet and The Mysterons, Stingray and Joe 90 has died at the age of 83.

The announcement of his death was made by Jamie Anderson, on his blog site:

I’m very sad to announce the death of my father, Thunderbirds creator, Gerry Anderson. He died peacefully in his sleep at midday today (26th December 2012), having suffered with mixed dementia for the past few years. He was 83.

Please make donations in his memory to the Alzheimer’s Society via this just giving link

Gerry Anderson was a major influence on generations of youngsters growing-up in Britain during the late 1950s to mid-1970s. His programs shaped play activities, games, toys and inspired imaginations. Anderson was as influential as Walt Disney, if not more so to young Brits.

Anderson was born Gerald Alexander Abrahams in Bloomsbury, London on April 14th, 1929. Anderson’s family were refugees from Eastern Europe, and his mother changed the family name by deed poll from Abrahms to Anderson in 1939.

His older brother Lionel joined the Royal Air Force at the start of the Second World War. He was transfered to the United States for training and wrote back of his training at Thunderbird Field - a name that was to prove highly significant to the Lionel’s younger brother.

Anderson began his career at the young age of 14 as a film trainee for the Ministry of Information, working for the British Colonial Film Unit as photographer and editor. After National Service, he returned to work at Gainsborough Pictures in 1947, slowly beginning his career as writer and director.

In the mid-1950s, Anderson set up a series of companies with his cameraman Arthur Provis, leading to the eventual formation AP Films, which produced the successful children’s puppet series The Adventures of Twizzle - about a boy who could stretch his limbs to any size. Anderson met and worked with puppeteer Christine Glanville, special FX technician Derek Meddings, composer Barry Gray and Sylvia Tham, a secretary who became his wife. Together this talented group would make Fireball XL5, Stingray, and Thunderbirds, amongst many others.

After the success of Twizzle, Anderson produced Torchy the Battery Boy, which though successful left Anderson frustrated by the problems of working with puppets. This changed in 1960, when Anderson devised Supercar with Reg Hill, which used an electronic system that made the puppets or marionettes respond in a more realistic fashion. This process was called Supermarionation and became one of the defining characteristics of Anderson’s best work.

Whïsker Dü: Because sometimes cat-ladies love 80s Hardcore

”Whïsker Dü was a hardcore band formed in Saint Maul, Meownesota in 1979”
 
My love for both 80s hardcore and cats has finally been synthesized with the Whïsker Dü tee-shirt.

The geniuses at Broke Friends have made my Christmas list, and I’m sure many a cat-lady punk (and remember, dudes can be cat-ladies, too) will be clamoring for this sly feline reference to Everything Falls Apart .

There are things that I love openly, like cats and Hüsker Dü, and there are secret loves that I keep to myself, like cheesy puns… until now.

We normally try to stay away from “cute” animal posts here on DM, but this cat who looks freakishly like Batman (I mean, just look at him!) was simply unavoidable.
