Strange day out here at Windswept Fields

Richie Tennebaum

Perhaps the best fake magazine cover in the history of cinema

Who knew the Baumer suffered his meltdown in 1994? One of saddest days in fictional sports.

The Royal Tenenbaums is now out on an awesome Criterion Collection Blu-Ray. A must own.

Pharaoh Wacko Jacko

The Pharaoh of Pop doesn’t quite have the same ring to it as King of Pop, but visitors to Chicago’s Field Museum could swear that’s Jacko’s face on a 3,000-year-old Egyptian bust. 

The spitting image limestone sculpture has been on display at the museum since 1988, but recently started drawing attention because of its likeness to Michael Jackson — complete with disfigured nose.

Pinky Cubans

For years now, when we listened to the 1994 Morrissey hit single “Now My Heart Is Full”, I thought the song’s refrain referred to “Pinky Cubans”. I was saddened to recently find out that alas, the line is “Pinkie, Cubitt”, referring to characters in Graham Greene‘s novel Brighton Rock.

Apparently misheard lyrics are a cottage industry, as a website called “Kiss This Guy”, has a huge database of them.

What are your favorite misheard lyrics? Leave them in the comments…

Hipster Grifter Kari Ferrell Speaks!

Good work! Bucky Turco landed the exclusives of exclusives, photographing and interviewing the infamous Kari Ferrell, she of “Hipster Grifter” fame (also seen in Gawker, Salt Lake City’s Most Wanted, Vice Magazine, etc).

Coaxing not only a video confession where Kari admits to past wrongs, but also an odd photoshoot, where Kari poses with traffic cones, websites, and flat screens – all while wearing the latest in Married to the Mob finery.
