When Eric Knight adopted his Chihuahua, Paco, from a shelter five years ago, he had no idea the pint-sized canine led a double-life as a superhero.
Two armed robbers who recently tried to shake down Knight’s cigar store in Altadena, California found out the hard way. They got far enough in the heist that the store owner was stuffing cash into a backpack — and that’s when Paco emerged, full of aggression and ear-piercing barks.
‘The Shawshank Redemption’ was pretty good, but could it have been better with a baby cast as the Raquel Welch-pining prisoner Andy Dufresne instead of Tim Robbins?
On the blog Arthur Recreates Scenes from Classic Movies, adorable British tot Arthur — with a little help from his mum, we imagine — poses with a variety of props such as stuffed animals, bath toys and his own crib to evoke iconic scenes from flicks such as ‘Jaws,’ ‘The Godfather,’ and ‘The Shawshank Redemption.’
Rebecca Black, as you’ll recall, is the auto-tuned teenager who endured months of criticism and parody when her amateur pop single ‘Friday‘ and its accompanying video went viral, racking up 167 million views on YouTube and countless parodies.
To make sure she strikes while the fleeting iron of fame is hot, the beleaguered 14-year-old is back with a much-anticipated follow-up. It’s called ‘My Moment’ and the music video is semi-autobiographical, showing clips of her life since ‘Friday’ took off earlier this year. The single will drop on iTunes tomorrow and Black will release a 5-track EP next month.
We’ve all had our share of break-ups that didn’t go so well and left a heartbroken ex behind. But a spurned superhero may be the worst kind of all.
After 73 years with the Man of Steel, it seems Lois Lane got a little tired of his phone-booth fetish and moved on. So, when the Superman comic relaunches in August, she’ll have a new boyfriend. Talk about a hard act to follow.
The rock magazine Creem launched in 1969 as a local publication covering the Detroit music scene. Renowned for its long-form journalism, it went national two years later and eventually became synonymous with its iconic editor, the eccentric critic Lester Bangs.
After Bangs died in 1982, the magazine floundered and ceased operations in 1988. It tried a comeback as a printed publication in 1990 but failed, and in 2001 went to an online-only format. Now it’s reinventing itself yet again.
German political magazine Cicero wanted to interview high-profile politicians but didn’t know how to get their attention. So its staff came up with a truly unique promotional idea.
The magazine commissioned an artist to carve busts of world leaders like Barack Obama and Nicolas Sarkozy into the lead of Cicero-branded pencils. The one-of-a-kind sculptures were then specially boxed and delivered to their likenesses.
Dyslexia sufferers have a tough time with basic reading– the learning disability actually causes those afflicted to view words differently than the rest of us. They sometimes see letters flipped upside down, mirrored or even rearranged within a word.
A new typeface called Dyslexie is trying to change all that. Created by Netherlands designer Christian Boer, it thickens the bottom of some letters and slants others in an effort to make texts easier for dyslexics to read.
