This Creeps Me Out

Since I had the unfortunate experience of stumbling upon this and being freaked out, I'm going to make you suffer with me.  There's just something so creepy about live-action My Little Ponies singing show tunes.  

Any kids who see this are going to be traumatized for life.  The only thing Little Ponies should be are delicious yet cavity causing fruit snacks.

Cheryl Cole is a Free Woman

Besides being just another excuse to show this picture of Cheryl Cole, The Guardian reports that Cheryl Cole has left her husband, Chelsea soccer player Ashley Cole.  It's really about time as this guy has been stupid enough to cheat on her multiple times, which is ridiculous because it's always a downgrade from Cheryl Cole.

This also means that now there's a really good chance that Cheryl Cole will be coming to America.  She's even been spotted in LA viewing property.  Too bad Britain, we're stealing her.

We should celebrate this event or welcome her by doing something like
this.  I'm sure she's really coming to America because she's noticed my campaign to get her here.

So Cheryl, you're saying I have a chance?

School Uses Webcams to Secretly Watch Students

Much like Rockwell, these students have to feel somebody is always watching them.

From Mashable, a school in Pennsylvania's Lower Merion School District is accused of using webcams on school-issued laptops to spy on students and their families at home.

The school even punished a student based on actions that were recorded via the webcam during non-school hours.

How Do You Talk to an Angel?

Bet you didn't know that "How Do You Talk to an Angel" by The Heights knocked Boyz II Men's "End of Road," which at the time had set a new record for most weeks at number one on the Billboard charts with 13 weeks,  out of the top spot in 1992.

Yep, just let that sink in for a moment.  America should hang its head in shame for that one, especially since it's a theme song from a TV show, and The Heights weren't even a real band.

Sweetheart Candies, No Thank You

Valentine's Day comes up this weekend, and with that comes the unfortunate presence of Sweethearts.  The heart-shaped candies with messages such as "Be Mine" and "Kiss Me" are synonymous with the holiday even though they taste awful.

Allegedly the candies' formula consists of sugar, corn syrup, gelatin, gums, colorings, and flavorings, but I'm pretty sure Sweethearts must be made of chalk because that's what they taste like.

Or maybe since Necco's headquarters are based in Revere, that's just the taste of Revere Beach water.

Boyz II Men Motownphilly and Lebron James

It's always a good time to watch Boyz II Men's video "Motownphilly."  Not only is it early 90s R&B in its heyday, but the video features the brightly colored sports coats and sweaters of the era as well.

It's clear that Lebron James must be a huge fan of this time period because he's single handedly attempting to bring that clothing style back.

When It's Okay to Eat Food Off the Floor

Courtesy of SF Weekly, a chart that helps you decide when you can eat food off the floor.  It seems to be a little too preoccupied with cats and food so I don't like the direction it's going in.

Unfortunately, it doesn't even address the most pressing question: When can you eat candy off the floor?  For instance,  you get some Skittles and rip the bag open only for precious red Skittles to fall to the floor.

Do you attempt to salvage them at the risk of losing other people's respect or just move on?

Kid Casting

From Kid Casting,  The Royal Tenenbaums

Do you ever find yourself wondering just how well a movie has cast the part of Jack Black during a flashback?  If so, you'd be interested in the website Kid Casting which features side by side screen grabs of the adult and flashback versions of a character in a movie.

The site could be more detailed, but it's still quite the amusing site and time waster.  You could spend a half hour looking through these things.

Also, it's a good demonstration of how little or how much the casting director cared about getting someone that actually looked like the adult actor.  For instance, they usually do a good job on Jack Black's flashback.

This is really good news for the guy whose life highlight was portraying a young Brad Pitt, but nobody ever believes him.  All he'd have to do is whip out his smartphone, and I bet some girl would sleep with him based on his work as a young Brad Pitt.  Well, unless he got fat because then she'd just laugh in his face.
