Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant

Bearded Salma Hayek

Salma Hayek I’m still trying to wrap my head around the idea of a bearded Salma Hayek in the upcoming film, Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant.

She’s one of the most beautiful women in the world, yet she plays a bearded woman in a travelling freak show. It’s awesome, yet I’m a little disturbed because even with the beard I still find her attractive. 🙂

Cirque Du Freak is essentially a vampire movie, filled with freaky goodness. The story is about two young kids who are bored with life and become tangled up with the travelling freak show led by a vampire (John C. Reilly). This movie looks really insane!

Here’s the official trailer, followed by a sneak preview of a vampire fight scene from the movie. Cirque Du Freak will debut in theaters on October 25, 2009.

Surrogates Music Video Reveals Spoilers

I’m really excited to see Surrogates, the upcoming sci fi thriller starring Bruce Willis. It’s a movie about a futuristic world where humans live in isolation and interact with each other through robot surrogates.

Wait, I thought that’s what the Internet is for, hehe.

I guess the band Breaking Benjamin has a big song in the movie, because the above music video is full of scenes from the movie.

Yoda the Grouch T-Shirt

Yoda the Grouch

TeeFury has an awesome Star Wars/Sesame Street mashup today. Yoda the Grouch! “Scram, You Will.” Very cool.

This store sells a different shirt everyday, and this shirt is only available for the next 8 hours. But it’s only $9, this is a great deal.

UPDATE: The sale has now ended, so I changed the link to point to the archive page.

Fin-tastic Mermaid Tails


So you just went for a swim at the community pull where you could have sworn you saw a mermaid.

No, you don’t have a case of the mad-fin flu. The truth is, you just might start seeing more and more mermaids in pools now that the company Mermagica manufactures beautiful custom mermaid tails. The tails come in a variety of colors and are made in child and adult sizes (although you might feel like you’ve just swallowed a shark whole when you see the prices).

If I thought for one minute that that I could actually maneuver such a magnificent appendage, I might slip into a tail of my own. But I have no desire to die a watery death and I doubt anyone wants to see a mermaid with muffin top. Needless to say, my adventures in the mystical, magical mermaid world will stay firmly planted in books and movies.

Awful Star Trek Dog Costume

Star Trek Dog Costume

Oh, this poor puppy, boldy going wherever he’s told.

I guess I can give props to the maker for creativity. But beer cans and cardboard? Sorry, this is awful, and quite amusing.

Star Wars Jedi Song

Are you in the mood for a punk-ish Jedi song? Of course you are!

The Cartoon Network made this music video to get folks excited for the upcoming season of The Clone Wars. I love the lightsaber guitar, it takes slasher to a whole new level.

Winking Pants


A retired father, and grandfather, in Washington has developed “Winkers,” pants with strategically placed eyes that “wink” when you walk.

I might actually think it was sort of clever (or not) if it weren’t for the way this “artist” came up with the idea…he was checking out a woman’s backside and he was sure that her jeans winked at him as she passed.


A note of warning: Wearing these pants gives you absolutely no control over who you wink at!
