15 Of The Weirdest Houses You’ve Ever Seen
25 feb 2016 13:07

Everyone has their own style when it comes to the type of house that they want to live in; some are just weirder than others. Sometimes when picking out the perfect home, we think of the number of bedrooms, the school district, yard space. The owners of these homes were looking for a few different options when finding the faultless abode. And some of these owners had their homes made just the way they wanted the house to look.

12 Ridiculous Superheroes We Hope Never See The Big Screen
18 nov 2015 11:45

It seems these days you can’t go into a theatre or watch TV without seeing an ad for the next superhero movie. However, with all the hype around superheros doing their thing on screen, it would have been easy for Hollywood to test out a few heroes that never quite made it to the spotlight – or at least not for very long. Thankfully, the lesser known heroes they have chosen are worth watching for at least an hour and a half, unlike every hero on this list. Straight up, if any of these made it...

10 Weird Schools You Won’t Believe Actually Exist
19 oct 2015 14:30

When schools resumed about a month ago, not all students went back to a ‘regular’ school building with hallways lined with lockers. The Train Platform School in India, was set up by Inderjit Khurana in 1985, and it’s exactly like it sounds. Students without access to regular classrooms, gather at train stations where they are taught how to read and write. Since its inception, more than 4,000 ‘street’ kids have been educated via the program. With any preconceived notion of what schooling...

The 10 Weirdest Ways Artists Create Their Work
21 sep 2015 12:09

Appreciation of art is largely subjective. While you may not give two figs for the artist or even their style, what you stays with you is whether the composition resonates with you, or not. Speaking of media in art, have ever heard of creating art with microbes? London-based textile designer Natsai Chieza creates art on a textile ‘canvas’, using bacteria. From coffee art to body parts, here are ten more artists creating art with verrrry different media.

The 13 Weirdest Things People Do To Keep The Memory Of Their Pets
06 feb 2015 13:39

There's no doubt that losing a pet is a tremendously sad thing, and naturally you're gonna want to memorialize your fuzzy friend. A burial in the backyard they used to roam or even a special urn are common ways to pay tribute to pets, but some pet owners believe they're pet is so special that their remains deserve a more eccentric fate.

Slash Performs New Song on 'Conan'
30 sep 2013 12:47

When you’re one of the most famous guitarists on the planet and you’re making a move into filmmaking, it’s pretty much a given that you’re going to make an appearance on your first movie’s soundtrack, right? That seemed a fairly foregone conclusion when we heard that Slash was heading for Hollywood with his Slasher Films production company, and now that Slasher’s first movie, ‘Nothing Left to Fear,’ is on its way to theaters, we’re getting our first taste of the Slash-assisted soundtrack album. He appeared on the ‘Conan’ show last night with his musical buddy Myles Kennedy, and the duo performed a new song titled — you guessed it — ‘Nothing Left to Fear.’ Written and produced in collaboration with composer Nicholas O’Toole, the ‘Nothing Left to Fear’ soundtrack consists mainly of the movie’s score, with a pair of songs — the title track and an instrumental called ‘The Road to Stull’ — rounding out the 32-track CD. According to Slash, the process gave him an opportunity to explore a different side of his artistic personality. As he put it in a press release, “Film scoring prompts me to engage different styles of writing and guitar playing that don’t always present themselves when I make rock ‘n’ roll records.” The film itself is set to debut in limited release on Oct. 4, and promises “a harrowing tale in the spirit of the terrifying horror films of the 1970s” with a story “inspired by the legend of Stull, Kansas, which is surrounded by Internet folklore proclaiming the town to be one of the Seven Gateways to Hell.” Have a look at the footage above, and let us know if the song brings Midwestern demons to mind.

Gene Simmons, Neal Schon + Jonathan Cain: National Anthem Roundup
30 sep 2013 12:42

If you felt an extra burst of patriotism this past weekend, it may have been because of what a few of your favorite classic rockers were up to. As we previously reported, Gene Simmons of Kiss headed to London over the weekend, where he helped kick off a special U.K.-hosted matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Minnesota Vikings by performing the national anthem. We’ve seen Simmons sing ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ before — he did it at an Oakland Raiders game in 2012 — but if you’re eager to hear his latest take on the tune, you can watch it in the video above. Meanwhile, back in the U.S.A., Neal Schon and Jonathan Cain of Journey fulfilled their previously reported obligation to travel to Tempe, Ariz., and perform their own rendition of the anthem before the Arizona State-USC game on Sept. 28. As you can probably guess, Schon and Cain took a different approach to the song, putting together an arrangement for keyboards and guitar rather than the standard a cappella version, but the crowd didn’t seem to mind the lack of vocal pyrotechnics. You can watch Schon and Cain’s ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ below, and decide which version you prefer — theirs or Simmons’. Or maybe some enterprising soul with the right software can give us all the best of both worlds by mashing both versions together to create a classic-rock national anthem megamix.

Killzone: Shadow Fall Digital Version Weighs in at 50GB
30 sep 2013 12:37

The move to digital versions of games has been a long time coming, but the size of next-gen titles on the PlayStation 4 might be counter-intuitive for those looking to save of hard drive space. In a recent Q&A will Eurogamer, Sony UK boss Fergal Gara talked a bit about the move to digital downloads. The PlayStation 4 will offer the ability to play games as they download from the web, but as Gara explains, file size might make the feature underutilized. “[There] are big innovations in the PS4 to make it more attractive and more easy gamer wise to want to download,” Gara said. “The Play as you Download functionality, for example, means you don’t need the whole file before you go. This is a little bit counterbalanced by the fact the files themselves are getting bloody big. Killzone: Shadow Fall is an uber file – I think it’s cracking on for 50GB. It looks it, too, when you see it.” Considering the PS4 ships with a 500GB hard drive, which will have some space already squared away for operations, there won’t be a whole lot of space left over for games of that size. While it’s true you could always add an external drive for more space, it almost makes more sense to just buy the physical game. While we don’t yet know if every game on the PS4 will be this massive, it’s something those planning to go full digital will have to keep in mind when making purchasing decisions.

Batman: Arkham Origins Adding Permadeath Mode
30 sep 2013 12:35

The Batman: Arkham games have always featured a more challenging New Game+ mode, but Arkham Origins is ramping things up even more with “I am the Night” mode. Speaking with Eurogamer, Batman: Arkham Origins producer Guillaume Voghel discussed new details about the upcoming sequel. We already knew Origins would feature some DLC that would put you in the shoes of an even younger Bruce Wayne as he studied martial arts abroad, but we didn’t know much else beyond those few facts. “You play as Bruce Wayne learning to be a ninja,” Voghel said. “That’s a really cool one. Narratively there’s some added content that will give players a little more background story.” “[But] it’s not League of Assassins, it’s ninja-related,” Voghel added. “It’s when he learned to be a ninja and learned those techniques. He goes to a monastery – custom content was created for the DLC. You’ll be in Asia in the monastery. The team did a great job on that, it looks really good.” Of course, that’s not the only cool news about Origins Voghel revealed. In addition to the now standard New Game+, Origins’ “I am the Night” mode ramps up the difficulty even further. After completing New Game+, the new mode opens, and you’ll only have one life to live as Batman. You will be able to save your progress, but the minute you fail or die, the game ends. It’ll probably be the most accurate way to play as Batman, but it sounds like it will clearly be the most difficult way to complete Origins’ 12-hour story.

Jinx Joins the Champions of League of Legends
30 sep 2013 12:34

Riot Games has announced that a new character will be joining the ranks of League of Legends‘ Champions. Let’s take a look at Jinx, the Loose Cannon. According to the official League of Legends site, Jinx will be making her debut in the foreseeable future and bring a lot of chaos to the game. She’s described as “packing major attitude and equipped with a cornucopia of carnage,” making her one deadly addition to this happy little family of Champions. Here are this sharpshooter’s abilities: Passive: Get Excited! – Gives Jinx a movement speed buff whenever a Champion or tower that she’s recently attacked is killed or destroyed. The buff decays over time. Q: Switcheroo! – Jinx switches her weapons from the Fishbones rocket launcher to the Pow-Pow minigun. The rocket launcher makes it so her basic attacks consume mana, but gives them extra range and damage. The minigun grants speed to her basic attacks and stacks up to three times. W: Zap! – Jinx fires off an electrical blast that deals damage to an enemy and slows them down. Perfect for running away from pursuers. E: Flame Chompers! – Jinx pops a line of snare grenades with delayed detonation. These light enemies on fire and root anyone who detonates them early. R: Super Mega Death Rocket! – According to the site, this ultimate attack travels around and “explodes on the first enemy champion hit, dealing damage to the target and all nearby enemies based on a percentage of their missing health.” Sounds tasty.

Marching Band Fail Creates Massive Tuba Pile Up
30 sep 2013 11:41

The problem with having your sousaphone players march backwards is that if one goes down, they all go down. A fact clearly evidenced by this video of seven marching band players piling one on top of the other during a halftime show. On the one hand, it kind of gives you an idea of the level of commitment marching band members have, which is worthy of respect. On the other hand…. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAA so many tuba players in a giant tuba stack!!!! Hilarious.

M.I.A. And The NFL Still Locked In Bitter Lawsuit Over Middle Finger
30 sep 2013 01:12

While most people will forever remember Super Bowl XLVI as that time that the New England Patriots still couldn’t beat the New York Giants, a few people out there still might talk about it as that time that rapper M.I.A. flipped off the camera and mouthed “I don’t give a sh*t.” Actually, those people do exist and they’re lawyers, because the NFL and M.I.A. are still locked in a bitter battle over that stupid, forgettable moment. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the NFL is still suing M.I.A. (real name Mathangi Arulpragasam) for $1.5 million and a public apology because nobody defiles a wholesome family-oriented NFL broadcast. NOBODY. Except for the players, coaches and owners, according to M.I.A.’s attorney, Howard King. “She is going to go public with an explanation of how ridiculous it was for the NFL and its fans to devote such furor to this incident, while ignoring the genocide occurring in her home country and several other countries, topics she frequently speaks to,” King says. “Of course, the NFL’s claimed reputation for wholesomeness is hilarious,” King tells THR, “in light of the weekly felonies committed by its stars, the bounties placed by coaches on opposing players, the homophobic and racist comments uttered by its players, the complete disregard for the health of players and the premature deaths that have resulted from same, and the raping of public entities ready to sacrifice public funds to attract teams.”

Wrestling Garbage Man Becomes Drug Dealing Special Ed Teacher
28 sep 2013 18:00

Who knew a guy called “The Dumpster” could have such a sad life? If you don’t remember him, Duke The Dumpster Droese was a wrestling garbage man who competed in the WWF between 1994-1996. He was a wrestler who was also a garbage man. That is literally everything you need to know about him. After his wrestling career became … uh, trash, The Dumpster (real name Mike Droese) tossed around on the independent circuit and eventually took a job as strength and conditioning coach for football at Tennessee’s Warren County High School. He parlayed that into a career as a special education teacher, and eventually parlayed THAT into a career selling drugs to undercover police officers. Something something, the dump. On July 1, according to the indictment, Droese sold oxycodone and buprenorphine. The next day, he again sold oxycodone. Droese was arrested Friday, Matheny said, but he left jail about two hours later after paying a $10,000 bond. Until Droese’s case plays out, he will be suspended from his job at Centertown without pay, Director of Warren County Schools Bobby Cox said. Droese, 45, did not return a call seeking comment on Wednesday. You can check out his mugshot here, and I gotta say, it’s not that much worse than when he was a wrestling garbage man. There’s almost no former occupation that makes you sadder and more prone to being arrested for things than “90s WWF star.” Many of them have died from drug-related issues (RIP Doink the Clown), and God, I wish there were enough miracle yoga programs to make all of them feel okay. If I wake up tomorrow and Irwin R. Sheister has been arrested for tax evasion so he could sell drugs to the Million Dollar Man’s rich kids, I’m calling it quits. Here’s an interesting quote from the Times Free Press, who interviewed a mark cop: “He used to be a wrestler, a very good wrestler,” the sheriff said. “He was in the WWE, and you can look him up on the Internet and watch all his matches. He wrestled with the best.” A few examples:

The Original Creator Of Mutant League Football Launched A Kickstarter
28 sep 2013 17:00

Way, way, way, WAY back in January of 2012, when Amanda Bynes was still just that girl we kind of remembered from movies, my UPROXXian friend from another front end, Dan Seitz, brought to our attention the fact that the classic Sega Genesis game Mutant League Football made an appearance in EA Sports’ NFL Blitz. That was it, though, just a simple mention of that old football game on the jerseys of some zombies that you could unlock by finishing the Blitz Gauntlet mode of the game. But now, the creator and lead designer of both Mutant League Football and Mutant League Hockey has launched a Kickstarter project to obtain the funds to bring his horror/pigskin hybrid back from the undead to once again be, um, undead. Michael Mendheim is currently putting together a team of designers to help bring us Mutant Football League, which will be a much bigger, grosser and generally more awesome version of the 1993 game. His reason: Over the last twenty years the press and fans of the original game (and the animated TV show) have kept the idea alive through online surveys, blogs, reviews and articles. Mutant League is always on the top 10 list of games people would like to see remade and for years fans and members of the gaming press have been asking me when the game will be resurrected. While it would have been terrific to work with some of the talented individuals that are still at EA, I must say that we’re looking forward to having full creative control over a NEW storyline, characters and environments so that players can enjoy the absurdly grotesque, tongue-through-cheek, **monster-and-mutant, gameplay experience that we want to make.

Anybody who listens to the FrotCast on a regular basis, and doesn’t ignore the one or two episodes that Vince allows me to be on each year, will know that we’ve been hip to the Ylvis scene for a while now. But a lot of people just showed up to the party earlier this month with the release of the Norwegian brothers’ latest video, “The Fox.” Regardless, there’s plenty of room on the bus for everyone, and the Ohio University marching band got in on the action last weekend with their own rendition of “The Fox.” More marching bands should aspire to be this awesome.

Ryan Lochte's Awful Reality Series Was Finally Canceled By E!
28 sep 2013 11:00

It took me five episodes to finally call Ryan Lochte’s E! reality series, What Would Ryan Lochte Do?, a dead fish, and that was being incredibly generous because I wanted to stop watching after five minutes of the first episode. And just as our traffic on my recaps trailed off as fast as the ratings on Lochte’s show, E! has followed in my footsteps and also canceled Lochte’s series. In fact, according to the HuffPo, WWRLD? debuted with 800,000 viewers (I’m guessing at least 30% were ironic) but recorded just 300,000 for the season finale. While E! reps claim that the network would love to work with Lochte again, let’s be serious. There’s no way this guy is getting back on TV unless it involves a swimming pool and the Summer Olympics, dancing with other pseudo-celebrities or starring as ABC’s The Bachelor. I’d also be all for a 30 Rock spin-off called Sex Idiot, but only if it has Tina Fey calling the shots, and I don’t think she’d be interested. So I thought maybe I could help my boy Ry-Lo out with some fresh, dope ideas that he and his manager/black friend can pitch to people in Hollywood.

DC Comics And David Goyer Conjure A John Constantine TV Show
27 sep 2013 21:12

DC Comics has announced their third TV series this season (Gotham Central and The Flash being the other ones). Deadline reports NBC has picked up a Warner/DC adaptation of Constantine, based on the cynical British con-man and magician turned supernatural detective John Constantine, not to be confused with the Keanu Reeves portrayed by Keanu Reeves in 2005′s Constantine. The show will be written and produced by David Goyer (co-writer of Man Of Steel and Nolan’s Batman trilogy) and Daniel Cerone (producer of The Mentalist). As far as we know, the movie version of the character instrumental to Guillermo Del Toro’s Dark Universe is still in development. Constantine‘s contract stipulates there will be a penalty for NBC if they don’t air the show. John Constantine knows what a shaft those contracts with penalties are.

'Breaking Bad' Letter To The Editor

You know, I didn’t agree with what Gordon Drennan from Burton was saying about Breaking Bad, until he got to the point about Jesse being Walt’s “best student.” Now I’m on board. We’re being corrupted, and only Gordon Drennan from Burton, who wrote a letter to his local newspaper to morally complain about the show’s Outstanding Drama Series Emmy win, has the balls to call us out, as a society. Ah, I remember when times were simpler.

Jody Steel's Pop Culture Thigh Art
27 sep 2013 20:49

Artist, aspiring filmmaker, and current Emerson College student Jody Steel has been generating buzz online lately with the pop culture portraits she doodles during class. Her subjects include fictional characters like Breaking Bad's Walter White and Game of Thrones' Daenerys Targaryen, and artists like musician Thom Yorke and author Neil Gaiman. Also, she draws the portraits on her right thigh. Since she began uploading pictures of the drawings to the Internet earlier this month, she's received notoriety both online and offline -- and zero pushback from her professors. One of them was so impressed by the work that she gave Steel a job illustrating the book she was writing. Click through to see some of her most interesting pop culture portraits. You can also check out the full scope of Steel's work -- which includes more thigh drawings of everything from animals to open wounds, in addition to pieces drawn on more traditional canvases -- on her website and Facebook page.

Guillermo Del Toro Is Working On The Next Simpsons Treehouse Of Horror
27 sep 2013 20:47

Yup, like the headline says, the next Simpsons Treehouse of Horror episode will feature an opening created by the director of Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy and Pacific Rim. I guess it makes sense — The Simpsons doesn’t seem terribly concerned with being funny anymore, so why not go the other direction and hire guys like Guillermo Del Toro to make their Halloween episode legitimately scary? Hit the jump for some more details… According to The Hollywood Reporter, Del Toro’s opening will “feature monsters and classic characters from horror films of the past several decades.” Hmmm! Well, that certainly sounds Del Toro-esque. The rest of the episode will of course do the usual three short stories thing. The first “sees Homer Simpson traveling around Springfield wreaking havoc in a rhyming take on a popular children’s story” (no thanks), the second begins when “Bart is beheaded during a kite accident, and…” (I’ve heard enough) and the third is a parody of the 1932 film Freaks starring Moe and Mr. Burns, which actually sounds like not a terrible idea. The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror XXIV airs on October 6th, and I’ll be watching, because I barely remember a time in my life when they weren’t making new Simpsons episodes, and I don’t know what I’d do if they stopped. Probably feel very old and sad.

Andy Samberg Tells Conan About Adam Sandler Attending His Wedding
27 sep 2013 20:43

I would never subject myself to sitting through ninety minutes of a 21st century Happy Madison production but despite never seeing the film I feel plenty confident in stating that Andy Samberg telling Conan O’Brien the story of how Adam Sandler showed up to his rehearsal dinner in character from That’s My Boy and screaming things like, “Oh, am I f*cking embarrassing you, buddy?” is infinitely better than anything else that has ever had to do with that movie. I mean, sure, Adam Sandler is essentially putting a hex on the marriage from the very start, but I still enjoy the idea of Sandler not taking himself seriously in mixed company and going all in on the bit. That part starts around halfway through above, after Samberg recounts the joys of losing his virginity — HAD SEX-style — on his wedding night. And below are some action-comedy acting tips for all you newly found Brooklyn Nine Nine fans.

Watch Vince Gilligan Announce His First Post-'Breaking Bad' Project
27 sep 2013 20:39

One of the most talked-about subjects in the entertainment world is what Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan will do now that he’s done running arguably the greatest show ever. We know he’ll have a hand in the Saul Goodman spinoff, and yesterday news leaked that CBS has picked up a drama script he originally wrote — and they originally rejected — back in 2002. But neither of those projects are what’s next in line for Gilligan. As he revealed in an exclusive on Conan, his next move actually has nothing to do with the entertainment industry — it’s far more ambitious. The man is no longer just in the TV or movie business. He’s very clearly in the empire business.

Watch Jimmy Kimmel Address Kanye West's Twitter Rant In His Monologue
27 sep 2013 20:37

As the entire internet is aware by now, Kanye West unleashed a Twitter character assault on Jimmy Kimmel yesterday in response to a Kanye “Kid Re-Kreation” parody Kimmel aired earlier in the week. Kimmel playfully acknowledged Kanye’s series of nonsensical 140 characters or less on Twitter not long after yesterday, but waited until his monologue (or maybe the monologue was taped before his tweets?) to full-on address the whole thing. And by “address the whole thing” I mean detail to his audience ever weird aspect of his earlier phone conversation with Kanye and then go through Kanye’s tweets one by one to subtly undermine them. The “good p**sy” tweet was practically begging for it…

Apple May Be Making A Gold iPad Mini
27 sep 2013 20:36

This news is less than surprising, given our apparently bottomless lack of taste as a species; a gold iPad Mini might be on the way as part of the Mini refresh. And it’ll also have the amusingly useless nipple scanner…errr…Touch ID because why the hell not? The rumor comes courtesy a Chinese site called DoNews, which has a spotty track record when it comes to this stuff, but it’s not like they’re telling us something a large corporation that likes money wouldn’t do. And honestly, it makes sense. Apple likes its mobile devices to look fairly similar to each other. The iPad and the iPhone have generally mirrored one another in design, and the Mini followed the trend; as wrong as all the old jokes about an iPad being four iPhones duct-taped together turned out to be, both are unmistakably Apple products that are part of the same line. And the iPad Mini is staggeringly popular, to the point where it’s outselling the iPad. So, considering how quickly the gold iPhone sold out, to some degree it only makes financial sense to give the people what they want and sell a matching Mini. All that said, it does so far appear that the iPad line, at least, will be spared the indignity of becoming a prop for insecure people to try and tell you how wealthy they are, but since those people will just have the thing gold-plated anyway, we guess in the end it’s a wash.
