I Don’t Care If This Is A Viral Video. December 11, 2009

Seriously, I could care less that this is a viral ad video. This is creepy and awesome at the same time.

The YouTuber who posted the candid camera footage describes the person caught on tape as “an uninvited guest living in my apartment”. He goes on to explain that he took the footage to the police, resulting in the arrest of the woman, who they confirmed was living in the loft of the building and climbing into the YouTuber’s apartment every night to eat, go to the toilet (or rather, the sink), and watch television.

The video is a fake; a marketing campaign for an accommodation rental website [deleted. Don’t want spambots-ed]. It’s very well done however – the only possible giveaway is at the end of the video, where you get the feeling the actor knows he’s being filmed. Web users certainly had a hard time deliberating over its authenticity, causing just the buzz the company desired.

Personally, the only cologne or perfume that I use is Eau de ValuRite, so I am not the expert on such niceties. But even I have to admit that a cologne or perfume based on the DNA of dead celebrities is creepily awesome in a morbid way.

A Beverly Hills company is formulating a line of “Antiquity” fragrances based on the DNA of dead celebrities including Elvis Presley, Albert Einstein, Marilyn Monroe, Michael Jackson – even Richard Nixon.

The firm, which also makes individualized scents based on a customer’s cheek swab, says it’s conjuring the star potions from DNA tests performed on hair clippings provided by renowned celebrity hair collector John Reznikoff.

“I can’t go into our secret process, but we base the fragrance on the genetic code,” said Dr. Diva Verdun, chief development officer at MyDNAFragrance.com.

Verdun conceded buyers aren’t getting a tangible piece of their deceased idol’s biology in the bottle, admitting that “you couldn’t do a reverse DNA analysis off of the perfume.” But she vowed the process is scientific.

“I did a little research on Elvis, and he actually had really bad body odor. So we don’t want to clone him in any way or create a fragrance that actually smelled like him,” she said. “DNA has nothing to do with bodily functions. There’s no way it can stink.”

In that vein, which other person-based fragrance would you like to see enter the market?

When Dorothy, a well respected chimp at a nature preserve in Cameroon, died recently, the handlers decided to bury her. In the process, this stunning photograph was taken.

“I cannot emphasise enough how silent and still they were. Chimpanzees are typically not like that. They are loud, with short attention spans. It was unbelievably emotional. We were all struck.”

In late 2003, my wife and I attended a sneak preview for a movie called “Touching The Void”. It was a documentary about the travails of Joe Simpson and Simon Yates, two British mountain climbers, as they scaled the West Face of the Siula Grande Mountain in Peru, a feat that had never before been accomplished.

All went well for the two blokes, especially as they reached the peak of the mountain. The real problem occurred on the way back down, when Joe fell and broke his leg. The two continued down the mountain, with Joe tied to Simon’s waist. Eventually, Joe was caught dangling over a ledge, and Simon cut him loose. Yeah, that would suck. Especially since Joe fell into a crevice, and Simon continued down the mountain.

But, after nearly a week, Joe managed to crawl out of the crevice and crawl his way back down the mountain, where he was rescued. I recall from sitting in the theater how cold I felt throughout the movie, what with two hours of nothing but ice on the screen. I also thought that if some guy could scale down a mountain with a broken leg, I sure as hell could get through the crap in my day. And I hope all of you think of that as well. No matter how awful things may appear, you can either give up and die, or keep crawling along.

Seriously, what in the hell is this?

As the ominous theme music to 24 played over the top, viewers watched him sit talking to the three.

Suddenly the windows smash, the sound of gunfire echoes through the room, and blood spurts from the chests of the men around him.

As they collapse, he crawls in obvious terror to the door, scrabbling in fear against it when he finds it locked.

This trauma-inducing experience is billed as comedy, with a studio audience laughing merrily over the top.

US television has seen similar shows – notably Scare Tactics, which faked serial killer attacks, live burials and UFO abductions – but Panic Face King’s startlingly lifelike and brutal images are still shocking.

Yeah. That’s messed up.

"Please Allow Me To Introduce Myself"

"Please Allow Me To Introduce Myself"

These things are multiplying all over my house, and I cannot keep up. Every time I turn around, a new one appears. Mice, cats, birds, fish, dogs, turtles, and spiders have all appeared in plastic, big eyed form the last few months.  I may need to call the Orkin Man.

Of course, if I do indeed get rid of these Spawn of Satan, you may see a Mushroom Cloud over St. Louis, so be warned.

Wish me luck.

While those of you in the northern climes have apparently experienced your first frost of the season, it’s been warm and pleasant here in Texas.  Upper 80s and sunny, but that’s about to change.

Rain, and cooler, kinda like last week’s surprise. 

I know this is fascinating to you and you needed to know.
