Art made from nothing but brown packing tape and a scalpel. By Max Zorn.
This was meant as a Christmas present for two girls I know who are 5 and 7, but I don’t think I’ll give it to them actually. It turned out a bit too evil-demon-pig-from-hell-y for that. Now it’ s sitting on a shelf threatening me with its existence. I’m not quite sure what I should do with it.
For those that are into numbers: that’s 10kg of marzipan, about 47 000 kcal. And it’s got six nipples.
I remember watching (reading?) this years ago…still funny
This individual received a box of 16mm and 35mm prints of various titles. One of which being the beautiful trainwreck that is Manos: The Hands of Fate. The original owners attempted to auction off the box of prints on eBay with no success. But now, the new owner quite possibly owns the best copy of Manos ever known.
Fun story. Gives a bit of background about the production of the movie (including why every frame looks like someone’s last-known photograph, to quote Mystery Science Theater 3000) as well as the owner’s project to release Manos on Blu-Ray.

Reasons why women and I just don’t see eye-to-eye
For those that know me in real life, I don’t have many female friends. They’re more of a hassle and typically just complicated individuals. I tend to relate to men more despite my sex. The past week has given me at least three instances depicting why I prefer the company of men. Granted, I’m sure there are several minute instances throughout the week but these three are most notable.
Note, these instances are completely true
Women are just plain creepy
Woman #1 (via phone call): Hey Tina, where did you get that keychain of yours?
Me: What keychain? I have no idea what you’re talking about
#1: You know, the one on your David Bowie purse (I have a tiny keychain of two pills on said purse)
Me: Oh, I got it at (irrelevant location).
#1: Alright, thanks. I’m going to go right now and pick one up
Me: …okay…forewarning though, it came in a mystery box so you don’t know what you’re buying until you open the box
#1: That’s okay, I’ll just keep buying them until I get the one you have
I repeat, “I’ll keep buying them until I get the one you have.” Granted, this is coming from the girl who has previously dyed her hair and cut it to look specifically like mine. I shouldn’t necessarily be surprised by her behavior anymore. If I ever mysteriously disappear, she should be the first suspect. I fear she’ll eventually cut me and wear my skin.
Instance 2 of creepy women
Woman #2 (via phone call): Hey Tina, guess what I did today?
Me: No idea, what?
Woman #2: I visited your dad!
This may seem relatively harmless but it needs further explanation. She’s met my father a handful of times and only knows about where he works due to me mentioning the company and possibly the city it’s located. Nothing more. Meaning she had to specifically look up the address and went out of her way to visit. Just to say hi. This was completely unannounced and he had no idea she was coming. No one did.
This cannot be normal behavior, right? An individual doesn’t visit a friend’s father for no reason and completely unannounced. She may be trying to replace my mother, I have no idea.
Finally, woman can be ungrateful
Speaking of mothers…
Scene: me completing a fairly decent meal consisting of ravioli and a side salad.
Me: Dinner’s ready!
Woman #3 (who happens to be my mother). *walks over, looks at what I made* I’m not hungry. *grabs a cookie and goes back to watch television
Homer: We could build snowmen.
Mr. Burns: No, I have a better idea! We could build real men, out of snow!
Homer: (confused) Oh… okay.
