Karma Of The Day

Ask for trouble and ye shall receive it.

Knitted Creation Of The Day: Alien Facehugger Mask

From Knitrocious on Etsy: "Ripley, believe it or not these toasty buggers are just looking for a face to cuddle. Cast your xenophobia aside and snuggle up with this little abomination. Legs have clips so that they can be worn around the head (you know, during sexy time) or unclipped just hang out."

The bad news: it already sold two weeks ago. Maybe she'll make more.

Michigan Man Arrested For Punching Mother In Face While Decorating Family Christmas Tree

December 16, 2013

A Michigan man repeatedly punched his mother in the face while decorating the family Christmas tree after noticing that “there was an ornament with his brother’s name on it and that there were no ornaments with his name,” according to police.

Cops responded to a home in Casco Township late Friday night after a 911 call was placed from the residence. While nobody was on the line, a dispatcher heard “yelling and screaming in the background and a woman screaming ‘You are hurting me,’” deputies reported.

News: Bare 3-Foot-Tall Christmas Tree Really Completes Incredibly Depressing Apartment

From The Onion.
Bare 3-Foot-Tall Christmas Tree Really Completes Incredibly Depressing Apartment

GRAND RAPIDS, MI—Noting that the sad little seasonal addition really seemed to “pull the place together,” local resident Jason Uhlir, 28, was reportedly pleased Tuesday by the way his newly purchased 3-foot-tall Christmas tree completed the unbelievably depressing look of his one-bedroom apartment.

“I had this bleak, empty corner between my stained secondhand futon and the slanting bookshelf where I keep my six DVDs, so I thought it might be nice to put a misshapen, pathetically under-decorated Christmas tree there,” said Uhlir, noting how the shabby miniature pine with its two ornaments and single pitifully draped strand of colored lights really “tied together nicely” with the ratty, soiled towel he placed beneath the tree and the nearby blinking internet router and tangle of Ethernet cords in the middle of the floor.

“I kind of had my own vibe going on in here with my completely blank, bare walls and oppressive fluorescent overhead lighting, so I didn’t know how a Christmas tree would look. But I have to say that this miserable little decoration and the pile of needles accumulating around it have really put the utterly dispiriting atmosphere of my apartment over the top.”

Sources noted that Uhlir’s living room was only one embarrassing, shoddily wrapped Christmas present away from pulling off that hands-down, blow-your-brains-out wretched look.

11 Things You Might Not Know About "A Christmas Story"

Jean Shepherd's book "In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash", which the film is partly based on, is a collection of short stories that Shepherd wrote for "Playboy" magazine during the 1960s
The film's setting is a town in Indiana, but was actually filmed in Cleveland, Ohio. Other parts were filmed in Toronto, Ontario, like the Christmas tree shopping scene, in which one of Toronto's trademark red trolleys can be seen driving by.
According to director Bob Clark, Jack Nicholson was given the script and was very much interested in the role of Mr. Parker, "The Old Man." However, Clark didn't learn of this until later and the studio didn't want to pay Nicholson's fee anyway, which would have doubled the budget.
According to Peter Billingsley (Ralphie) in the DVD Commentary, the nonsensical ramblings that Ralphie exclaims while beating up Scut Farkas were scripted, word for word.
For the scene in which Flick's tongue sticks to the flagpole, a hidden suction tube was used to safely create the illusion that his tongue had frozen to the metal.
When the character of Scut Farkas first appears, the "Wolf" music from Sergei Prokofiev's "Peter and the Wolf" plays in the background. The name "Farkas" is derived from the Hungarian word for "wolf".
Bob Clark's success with the teen-sex comedy Porky's (1982) allowed him the ability to make a movie he wanted to make. Without "Porky's" there would have been no "Christmas Story".
 Wil Wheaton auditioned for the role of Ralphie.
Actor Peter Billingsley, who plays Ralphie, has a cameo as an elf in the movie Elf.
Cameos: writer/narrator Jean Shepherd is the irate man waiting in the Santa line at the department store. Director Bob Clark is Swede, the dim-witted neighbor, who marvels at the Leg Lamp from outside.
A Christmas Story was the inspiration for the TV series, "The Wonder Years."
