  • ‘First Batch’ of Twinkies Hit Shelves with Limited Box

    Twinkies are back, baby. We took them for granted while they were here, overlooking them time and time again on the dusty shelves of grocery stores. Bypassing the Twinkie for Zebra Cakes or Cosmic Brownies as if it would be there forever, like Woody at the bottom of Andy’s toy chest. Then in a flash, they were gone. Stocked shelves were left empty and hollow, as if Twinkie locusts came harvested and departed within seconds. Now they’re back and we promise we’ll never take them for granted again. We promise, once they hit Walmart at 12:01 a.m. on Sunday, a day before the rest of the country’s 96,381 store shelves are stocked, we will make it our business to buy our inaugural comeback box. We promise to love and uphold our relationship with those golden bars of sponge cake, retail price for a box of ten is $2.98. We promise not to let you down as a country again, Twinkie, and we promise, with your help, to regain the crown back from Mexico.

  • The Top 10 Most-misheard Lyrics Accoding to Spotify

    Music streaming service, Spotify, just released ‘The Top 10 Most-misheard Lyrics’ and the results are anything but shocking, mostly because we make all of these lyrical mishaps on the regular. Obviously ‘Hold me closer, Tony Danza’ has made the list, surprisingly not in the number 1 spot, but it’s up there. A newer song, that we thought was sure to make the list was Rihanna’s “We found love in a hopeless place” which listeners thought that  the Grammy-winner sings “We found Dove in a soapless place” in her 2011 chart-topper, according to a UK poll. Here is the list in full and a Spotify playlist for your listening pleasure as well.

  • The Movie Thats Sweeping The Internet today ‘Sharknado’ is Better in Gif Form

    Sharknado swept through our TV’s last night and no one really knew what to expect. But what we got was a couple of hours of 90′s bro and Sharknado protagonist, Ian Zering chainsawing his way through a tornado made of sharks. What makes things better than that, if you could imagine it getting better, Tara Reid plays a character who might as well be Tara Reid. Taking a bite out of ‘Snakes on a Plane’s’ action meets cheesey, Sharknado is worth the watch, but if you’d rather waste your time doing something else like reading or running, here’s basically the entire movie in Gif Form.   Here’s ‘Fin’ shooting a shark out of the sky with a hand gun   Here is a tornado made of sharks Here is Fin jumping into a sharks mouth with a chainsaw Tara Reid kicking a table with a chainsaw on it to Fin who then uses said chainsaw to cut a shark in half   Here is that scene again in slow mo. Incase you missed it.  

  • Kimmel: How Congress Fixes Problems ‘School House Rock’ Style

    Jimmmy Kimmel has bone to pick with the way our government tackles the issues that affect our everyday life. He notes how our congress is currently being looked at as one of the most unproductive in the countries recent history and how they’ve only passed a dismal 16 15 laws this year and “one of the 15 was putting a baseball player on a commemorative coin, so they’re focusing on the important stuff.” Kimmel went on to preface a video for kids on just how congress goes about business, ‘School House Rock’ style.  

  • Tom Thum Gives Brilliant SFX Beatbox at TED x Sydney

    At just under two minutes in, Tom creates a series of sounds thought only possible by Larvelle Jones in Police Academy. Before you know it three minutes have gone by and you can’t remember if you blinked, because Tom’s vocal chords have hypnotized you with the likes of Micheal Jackson, to which he then takes you on a journey of music throughout the world, playing a sitar in India for example.

    It’s literally the best day of the year. July, 11th is the best day of the year. Mostly because our favorite international deli, 7-Eleven gives away free, 7.11 oz free slurpees to indulge in.

  • NHL 94 Anniversary Mode for NHL 14 Brings Back Memories of Lawless Videogames

    The glory days of videogames put the EA NHL series at the top of the food chain. Mostly because it was the wild west of rules, no offsides, no icing, hit the goalie, kill the goalie, skate down the ice and just before the hash marks, cut to the middle and the goalie will be so awestruck by such a deep cut, his bewilderment will leave him helpless. You couldn’t turn foul balls off in RBI Baseball or Offsides in Madden. That was the beauty of living in a video game world with no rules. Well retro mode is back in the new NHL 14 game and we cant wait to play online and cheeseball (skate down the ice, hook around the net leaving the goalie stuck against the post and wah-lah, open net). The game showcasesblue ice, classic star-shaped player indicators, 16-bit arena powerbars, no adboards, and throwback organ music.

  • 5 People Not to Confuse Celtics Coach Brad Stevens With

    Former Butler coach, Brad Stevens inherited the keys to a somewhat abandon kingdom. His task of rejuvenating the Celtics won’t be easy, but Stevens is no stranger to success. His Div-I college record of 166 wins in 6 seasons is nothing to be shy about, so when a chance to wrangle and jumpstart a team who has, arguably, the toughest crowd in basketball fell into his lap, he jumped on it. Now if you’re not familiar with college basketball, this might be a fresh face, easily confused with others in pop culture. We made a list of five people not to confuse new Celtics coach, Brad Stevens with. 

  • NFL Arrests Per Team Since 2000 (graph)

    The NFL is no stranger to Johnny Law, producing forty mugshots from players in the off season of 2013. I’ll say that again, FORTY players. With the Hernandez fiasco putting a spotlight on players acting a fool, we did our due diligence using U-T San Diego’s NFL Arrest Database, to find that number jumped from 27 in the off season last year, and there are still  nearly two months left to wreak havoc. Maybe it’s a lenient penalty system in place with a slap on the wrist fine for these guys that has them acting like over privileged children without repercussions. You’ve seen the documentaries, read the stats on what the concept on money means to these athletes. Or maybe it’s becoming more mainstream in the locker room, making it part of the culture to get pinched. Whatever the case arrests in the NFL are definitely on the rise.   This interactive graph shows every arrest and charge since 2000. Visit the page and roll over for more details on players.

So if you’re a true diver or just want a little bit of helium to make children (and myself) giggle, you know where the release valve is.
