"Hello, I'm Shelley Duvall" - The Supercut

Shelley Duvall was always one of those actresses whose faces I could never get out of my head, especially after she scared the bejesus out of me in The Shining.

Tim Pawlenty - Presidential Front-Runner or Action Hero?

Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty is almost definitely going to run for President in 2012, and he isn't wasting any time developing a strong online presence. In a promo video on YouTube that feels like a trailer for a Michael Bay big banger, Pawlenty is painted as an all-American hero, a guy whose visage and voice appears alongside Cassius Clay, Martin Luther King, George Washington, and --...

Models Covered in Ladybugs

Until now, I had two opinions of ladybugs: that they were very pretty and that Rodney Dangerfield and Jackee Harry made an awesome movie about them. So imagine my surprise (and now yours) upon watching a video of photographer Ed Zipco shooting redheaded models covered in over 200,000 live, horny ladybugs for Vice Magazine. Seeing these models covered in live ladybugs really paves the way for...

Keanu Addresses 'Sad Keanu' Meme

Do I wish that I didn't get my picture taken while I was eating a sandwich on the streets of New York? Yeah. So says Keanu Reeves, who became an internet joke last summer thanks to a photo of him chewing an ol' sammie in New York City, looking miserable.
