Cruel woman dumps cat in bin | The Sun |News

http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/3107733/Cruel-woman-dumps-cat-in-bin.html Yes, some coldhearted woman dumped a cat in a garbage bin, and yes, it’s appalling.

Can you believe that all of these are paintings? & This Blog Rules | Why go elsewhere?

http://www.thisblogrules.com/2010/07/can-you-believe-that-all-of-these-are-paintings.html I find it telling that photorealistic painters pick such mundane subjects. I’d rather look at the world through Picasso’s eyes.

Jim Brickman – Never Alone

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lnNK4Alwbsw I went looking for Jim Brickman songs, as I thought I recognised the name, but apparently not: This is the kind of musical tripe I stay far away from, and does nothing to reform my view of Christian country music as sentimental glurge with white Republicans (a redundant phrase, I know) as the target […]

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68Ep9WIc3TY Holy crap. Bizarre video, noteworthy for featuring a team of American Football players parading around George Square without a single stabbing incident. I imagine the short-lived introduction to this sport in Glasgow was one of the few things Rangers and Celtic fans could agree upon: “American Football” is utter shite. **EDIT** A Wikipedia search […]

WHERE’S COOL? – Budget travel reviews of indie and authentic bars, restaurants, neighborhoods, hostels, hotels, coffee shops, record shops and more.

http://www.wherescool.com/ Travel recommendations submitted by hipsters. As you’d guess from the title, a tag cloud would show the word “cool” as the most-used term on this site. The reviews are even shallower than that warning indicates. Useful if only so I know where not to go.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8JRtGMBUz0 Eurovision: Championing mediocrity for, what, fifty years now? Crap music, crap visuals, crap staging – no wonder Father Ted was able to make it to the finals. The only good thing that has come out of the competition since Abba (and there are many who would argue them out as well) is Tim Moore’s […]

News | Marvel.com

http://www.marvel.com/news/comicstories.7021 Marvel publishes a comic book version of Pride and Prejudice. For decades, comic artists have fetishised their female characters, and the habit seems to be hard to break: The Bennet girls all look like smouldering hussies with rampant cases of sex hair. It’s also discouraging that the backgrounds in every panel of this preview […]
