Detroit Lives [Oct. 20th, 2010|08:58 am]

“Detroit Lives” is a 32-minute documentary (hosted by Johnny Knoxville and sponsored by Palladium Boots, for better or worse in both cases) about the shinier sides of Detroit and the people working to make it a better place. It’s got some charm, some good shots, and what I thought to be some genuinely interesting insights on the socioeconomic scene that’s set when big business pulls out and leaves room for local endeavors to thrive.

Check it out here.

Not too far removed from a sort of ‘Adventure Time’ level of charm, Gluko & Lennon are definitely worth the 12 minutes of your day.

Police: Man was naked, with stolen cheese [Jun. 25th, 2010|04:44 pm]

DOWNTOWN CINCINNATI (Thursday, June 24, 2010) – The police report on Darrell Bess was succinct.

According to police and court records, Bess, 52, was found unclothed standing at the men’s room sink in the Cincinnati Public Library by police at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. When they searched Bess’ bag, police said they found a 4-pound chunk of cheese allegedly stolen from Silverglade’s Cheese & Sausage In Findlay Market.

He also had two knives and some DVDs that belonged to the Vine Street library branch. 

Police arrested him Wednesday on charges of public indecency; carrying a concealed weapon; knowingly trespassing; theft and receiving stolen property. A judge ordered Best to stay away from the library.

Bess, who is homeless, has been arrested numerous times.

In court on Thursday, Bess was fully clothed.

Playing the goat [Jun. 24th, 2010|11:38 am]

All you people who kept telling me I was wasting my time hollowing out all those goats obviously haven’t seen RistoTodoroski’s bagpipes. Or heard them, for that matter.

Something Left, Something Taken [Jun. 17th, 2010|01:18 pm]

This is excellent:

Something Left, Something Taken from Tiny Inventions on Vimeo.

From Drawn!

It was created by husband-and-wife team Max Poter and Ru Kuwahata of Tiny Inventions. What’s special about the short is how it blends so many types of animation — hand-drawn, stop motion, After Effects, and even some good old fashioned puppetry — all with a charming hand-made crafty feel. Throw in a little forensic science and serial killer storyline, and you’ve got yourself CSI: Little Big Planet.

Transgender Men Go Topless At Delaware Beach [Jun. 3rd, 2010|01:26 pm]

( Jun. 03, 2010) REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. (AP) – Rehoboth Beach in Delaware isn’t a topless beach – but a few transgender men caused a stir by treating it like one.

Police say passers-by complained after the men removed their tops and revealed their surgically enhanced breasts over Memorial Day weekend. A lifeguard asked them to put their tops back on. The men initially refused, but covered up before police arrived.

Even if they hadn’t, though, Police Chief Keith Banks notes the men were doing nothing illegal. Since they have male genitalia, they can’t be charged with indecent exposure for showing their breasts. Banks says there’s no need for a specific law to address the issue.

Rehoboth Beach commissioner Kathy McGuiness isn’t so sure. She says the matter will be discussed at a town hall meeting next week.

Tupelo [May. 25th, 2010|05:40 pm]
[Tags|, ]

I went to the Franklin Park Zoo a couple weekends ago to see the scene and check in on their baby tapir, Tupelo. Sadly, I was too slow in getting down there this year to catch her spots and stripes, but I did get to take in some great local color.

The best bit of conversation I overheard was between a couple, maybe in their late 30s, outside of the giraffe paddock. The woman incredulously demanded to know why God had made the giraffes so tall. Her husband, seemingly not accustomed to difficult questions, suggested meekly that perhaps it was just so someone would eat the leaves from the tops of the trees. She turned to him, fire-eyed, and shot back “well alright, then how do you explain the patypus?”
