Katherine Dunn, the author of the darkly beautiful, disturbing, surreal carnival novel Geek Love, died on May 11 at age 70. Her son told Willamette Week the cause was complications from lung cancer.
In the single good thing that’s occurred in this election season so far, the Daily Beast reports that Ted Cruz and Ben Carson met for a very tense secret meeting in a storage closet in a South Carolina convention center near the bathrooms. As you do.
Greg Krueger has spent the better part of the last 15 years bringing together his three passions: "trails and paths...AND CATS!" Now his four cats have a more luxurious home than many of us ever will. #Jealous
This is seriously insane and I'm upset I didn't think of it first.
What you're looking at is not a tarantula. I know that might be hard to believe as you hyperventilate in your computer seat or while checking your phoneon the train (I don't know your life), but what's actually happening is much much cooler. And much less scary.
Previously: Puddles Pity Party stole our hearts (and our souls — because that is what clowns do) with his rendition of "Royals" by modern-day teen witch Lorde. We laughed, we cried, we watched the video about 78,000 times and wished we could sing like him.
What better time than a sunday evening for an awesome piece of art? And what better time than now to look closer at this image and try to figure out how it was made? Give up yet? Look again! (No, really. I will wait here.)
If you're into improvised jam sessions happening in front of grocery stores, you'd better head to Dallas, Texas because there's some good stuff happening in front of the local Kroger. This video, captured by a man on his way to the supermarket, shows a street musician playing acoustic guitar and singing. Ok, you…
If there's one iron-clad scientific fact I know, it's FUCK PLANK. For those of you who aren't fitness gurus like me, plank is this thing where you prop yourself up on your elbows and toes and then just hold still forever and ever until your core catches fire and devours you from the inside out.
You may remember Angelina Jordan from her previous outings on Norway's Got Talent. She's performed "Gloomy Sunday" (not better than Billie Holiday; no one's better than Billie Holiday)), she's nailed "Fly Me to the Moon," and now she's back to tug at your heartstrings with her version of Nancy Sinatra's "Bang Bang (My…
Mayhem (not her real name, but an excellent name for a fashion house) is only 4 years old and she's already crafting amazing paper versions of awards show gowns and runway creations. She's been designing for the past nine months, and according to her mom, Angie, she's gotten the process down to a science, knowing just…
Did you even know the giant piano could do that? I thought the only thing you could play was "Mary Had A Little Lamb" or "Happy Birthday" if you were particularly fit and ambitious. And then these employees come along and do "Toccata and Fugue in D Minor" and all your dreams of giant piano superstardom crumble.
TAYLOR IS SO INTO IT — she can barely stop herself from grabbing the mike and going fucking crazy on that song. Prince William, on the other hand, is more content to let Bon Jovi shine. That's his way. (For the record, both reactions are totally understandable.)
Is there anyone on the planet cooler than Yoko Ono? No, there is not. Maybe Merlin if he's really still trapped in that cave — but, then again, nope.
Cheerleader Mikayla Clark made it into the Guinness Book of World Records after doing 44 consecutive back handsprings in 34 seconds. And what have you done with your life. *Eats half a tub of Chocolate Cookie Butter.*
This video of children, families, doctors, nurses and administrators from the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock lip syncing Katy Perry's "Roar" is more than an afternoon cry. It's an afternoon weep. It's an afternoon emotion-hurricane.
If you're fantasizing about quitting your shitty job, this video by disgruntled employee Marina Shifrin will be like fantasy catnip.
As the timeless Southern poet Barry Hannah once implored, "Who among us has not fucked in Home Depot?" There's just such an ambiance. Empty window frame displays hung on a 90 degree angle that you can open and close? In a depressing strip mall between a PetCo and a Michaels Arts & Crafts? As a middle-aged guy…
