Barbecued Alaska – washingtonpost.com

In a move that’s sure to get you scratching your head, an Ice Cram Parlour in Alaska has a bit of a creative side with one of the owners. Mixing up unique flavours is nothing new to most Ice Creameries but this one takes the cake. Or should I say grill?

Linus licks the bacon ice cream. “Not bad,” she says. But she’s not big on the frozen bits of bacon. McDonough thinks it tastes a little like butter pecan and kind of likes it.

Wait…butter pecan? frozen bacon pieces? I mean…wait..what? ugh.

You Must Remember This

Winona Finally Talks About Shoplifting Incident – Yahoo!

Hey! remember Winona? You know….Winona? She was in some movies…a while back..Heathers? Uh…Girl, Interrupted? you know….the brunette one. No? Remember the chick who got busted stealing shit from Sak’s? yeah no? Sure you do, because she’s here to remind you!

Winona Ryder, after years of obscurity silence, opens up about that whole shoplifting thing she did in 2001 that FOX News wouldn’t shut up about. Now that your memory is refreshed right up, she can go on to tell you that it wasn’t her fault, merely the underpants gnomes drugs were telling her what to do.

But, never fear! Drugs are bad mmmkay? She stopped taking Oxy and is all right now and is really sorry that she was that desperate for attention. Although from the looks of things, she’s still pretty desperate for attention that she’s talking about stuff that happened almost six years ago.

In the spirit of Winona Ryder and no longer famous – Primus!

A Sickly Green Descends Over The Screen

Fifth “Shrek” May Be The Last – LATimes.com

shrek_3_5.jpg Just when you thought that the disappointing third installment was the last one, here comes another one. No wait, another two. Coming out of the “no new ideas” folder is word from DreamWorks that the fifth installment “may be the last”. What worries me is that there is definitely going to be a fourth one and that the fifth one “may” be the last. Also meaning that it may also “not be” the last.

Shrek The Third is said to have raked in almost $80 Million dollars worldwide as nothing but profit. Nothing encourages more of the sameness than stupidly high amounts of profit. Sure, not nearly as much as part I or II, but enough to as they put it:

The story itself has five chapters,” Sullivan said. “Based on the success of the first three films, at the very least, the next one, ‘Shrek 4,’ is warranted.”

Hide while you can. There’s more of this crap on the horizon.

Life Immitates Art…At A Price

Dubai Luxury – Submarines For The Super-Rich

Microsoft Co-Founder Paul Allen recently paid a reported $12 Million dollars for a fully functioning 12.2 Meter Yellow Submarine. Yes, that’s right – a Yellow Submarine.


┬áIt’s obvious that Allen is a, er, minor Beatles fan and this just goes to show that a fool and his money are soon parted. Surely there’s not a better way to spend $12 million dollars than on something this stupid? Sure it’s his money and he can do what he likes with it, but whilst he is cavorting in that Octopus’ garden I hope he gets the bends because this is just a stupidly selfish purchase.

Mot enough attention can be given to the Gates’ Foundation but crap like this needs to be lambasted for the selfish greed it is.
