Get ready for the second coming of the Frank Zappa Choir : The Mothers of Appropriation, coming at you at this year’s NSCAD Wearable Art Show!
Snow ranging in colour from light yellow to orange and carrying a distinctive “musty” odour was observed yesterday in five districts of Omsk province, which lies in western Siberia and borders Kazakhstan.
Ain’t no Huskie wee-wee either, methinks…
A creepy incident occurred at Chicago’s WGN-TV on 22/11/’87:
The pictures on the station monitors in the studio suddenly began to jitter and twitch. Across Chicago, countless other televisions did the same, as Dan’s clips of the Bears game were lost in a brief flurry of static and replaced with the sinister, grinning visage of Max Headroom.
Meanwhile, in the WTF Department:
Yes: it’s the Teenar, a department store mannequin converted into a working electric guitar.
When Jim Stauffer of Petaluma saw a chicken crawling out of a mound of compost like the living dead, he knew something had changed at the egg farm next door. “We called them zombie chickens,” Stauffer said. “Some of them crawled right up out of the ground. They’d get out and stagger around.”
Since Jingle Bells is a little overdone this time of year, I thought Tchaikovskyâ€™s â€œDance of the Sugar Plum Fairyâ€ would be a great alternative. At first I didnâ€™t think it could be done, but as I recorded sounds from my road bike and mountain bike it started to take shape.
Whatever happened to Kramer from Seinfeld? Well…

Is the Bush administration preparing an escape to Paraguay? Say what Barry? The Cuban news service reports that George W. Bush has purchased 98,840 acres in Paraguay, near the Bolivian/Brazilian border.
Now, Prensa Latina is a Cuban-government operation that is not exactly friendly toward Washington, what with Washington trying to kill Castro for 50 years and all. But Prensa Latina didnâ€™t invent the story. Itâ€™s all over the South American press â€” and not just Venezuela and Bolivia. Hereâ€™s a version from Brazil. Hereâ€™s one from Argentina. And hereâ€™s one from Paraguay itself.
Hereâ€™s a fun question for Tony Snow: Why might the president and his family need a 98.840-acre ranch in Paraguay protected by a semi-secret U.S. military base manned by American troops who have been exempted from war-crimes prosecution by the Paraguyan government?
Flabbergasted I am. Via The Idiot Bastard.
That’s right folks, don’t touch that dial…
