Sammy Sosa — Pinterest Sensation, Music Star!

Sammy Sosa — Pinterest Sensation, Music Star!

Funny Stuff
In case you haven't already seen, Sammy Sosa -- former Major League Baseball star, bat corker, and Hall of Fame wannabe -- has undertaken a bizarre strategy for improving his public image. And by that I mean he's not only Tweeting, he has a Pinterest page. But rather than use Pinterest for its intended purpose -- sharing pictures of food and kicky shoes -- he's published nothing but posed portraits of himself. To compound the oddness, every photo bears an identical description: "Sammy Sosa. Yes, I'm the real Sammy Sosa, and this is my Pinterest." In looking at Sosa's pinned photos, featuring him posing uncomfortably either in a snappy blue suit or mustard yellow sweater, I was struck by how much some of the photos looked like the cover to a never-released album of lounge music or easy l...

Seattle, Welcome Back Your NBA Basketball Team With a New Logo!

Funny Stuff, Sports
If today's reports are to be believed, the NBA's Sacramento Kings -- currently sitting pretty at the top of the list of franchises who have gone the longest without a title -- are leaving the California capital and moving north to Seattle. That city is, of course, the former home of the SuperSonics, who now play in Oklahoma City as the Thunder, and have a crappy logo. And while Emerald City residents are already salivating at the return of their beloved Sonics, I'd like to humbly suggest a new brand altogether. After all, the most recent major sports team to depart a town and return several years later with the same name was the Cleveland Browns. And we all know how that's been going for them.

I'm not saying this was inspired by Mumford & Sons, but I'm also not denying it. Short pants, even shorter temper. Subtitled: Little Toby and the Reverse Cowboy. (Many thanks to Bob Staake for the inspiration.)

Check Out This Awesome Deleted Scene from Halloween (1978)

Internet, Movies
Fans of the horror classic Halloween have noted quite a few inconsistencies over the years. Like, why are the trees full of green leaves in Illinois during late October? Why do all the cars have California plates? And most importantly, how the hell did Michael Myers learn to drive a car when he's been locked inside Smith's Grove Sanitarium since he was 6 years old? Well thanks to Adam Green of ArieScope Pictures, now we know. Turns out there's a deleted scene that explains the whole thing. Check it out: Nice. Oh and how cool is it that Michael is played by Kane Hodder, who also played Jason Voorhees in four Friday the 13th films? Very cool indeed.
