NBC: Our Shame Is Showing



I just saw a promo for Fear Factor: Freaks and Geeks. So let me get this straight: The network that canceled one of the best shows ever (Freaks and Geeks) is using the name of that show to get people to watch one of the lamest and most exploitative shows ever? Now that’s classy!




The Unknown Species of Bird of the Day is the Berlepsch’s six-wired bird of paradise, named after the "six fine feathers about 4 inches (10 centimeters) long on the head of the male which can be raised and shaken in courtship displays." According to CNN, this bird was found among other new species of birds, butterflies, frogs and plants in a "lost world" in the jungles of Indonesia.The expedition

also took the first photographs of a Golden-fronted bowerbird in front of a bower made of sticks, while he was hanging up
blue forest berries to attract females.

It found a rare tree kangaroo, previously unsighted in Indonesia. Beehler said the
naturalists reckoned that there was likely to be a new species of
kangaroo living higher altitudes.

Congratulations, six-wired bird of paradise and all your recently discovered friends!

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Vanity Fair Shoot


Everybody’s talking about the new Vanity Fair cover. Well, now there’s a Behind The Scenes video to provide you with even more Scarlett and Keira.

Watch it, but just be warned: it’s kind of like watching a cheesy B-movie that was edited for USA’s Up All Night in 1994. There are hot women who are almost naked, there’s bad music, a sleazy looking guy revealing too much chest hair, and there’s no plot whatsoever. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it now, just like I enjoyed The Bikini Carwash Company then.

Discaderm not reccomended for those with heart failure, curly hair or lisps. Consult your doctor if you are too afraid to sleep.
