U.S. Slashes Funding for Sesame Street Pakistan

Posted 2012-06-06 18:53:20 | Views: 6,601

A $20 million initiative to develop a Pakistani version of "Sesame Street" has been cut short due to allegations of corruption, according to a report from the AP.

 

"Sim Sim Hamara" first aired at the end of 2011 and was intended to go on for at least three seasons. Like other international co-productions of "Sesame Street," the show was adapted for its country's specific culture and needs, pairing familiar characters like Elmo with new ones like cricket-loving schoolgirl Rani, the "epitome of a traditional Pakistani woman" Baji and vain crocodile Haseen-O-Jameel. According to the AP:

 

The U.S. cut off funding for the project and launched an investigation after receiving what it deemed to be credible allegations of fraud and abuse on a telephone hotline set up by the U.S. Agency for International Development in Pakistan, said U.S. State Department spokesman Mark Toner. "So rather than to continue to throw good money after bad, we thought it was prudent to cut off this program and wait for the results of the investigation," Toner told reporters in Washington.

 

U.S. Slashes Funding to Pakistan's Version of 'Sesame Street'

F is for No More Fuckin' Funding 

"Sim Sim Hamara" is the work of Lahore's Rafi Peer Theater Workshop, who partnered with the U.S.'s Sesame Workshop. While it seems fast on its way to being politicized -- the initiative was part of the U.S.'s multibillion-dollar aid program in Pakistan -- the show was meant to both increase tolerance and serve as a much-needed educational tool in a country in which one-third of children aren't in school. So far $6.7 million has been spent on the show -- on itsFacebook page, someone pleads "Please keep this show running on Ptv. It is very good for Pakistani children's education."

DC Comics Turns Gay

Posted 2012-05-22 15:39:08 | Views: 8,636

 

 

DC Comics is set to reintroduce a major character as gay. 

Honchos at Superman's comic book home, DC Comics, said this weekend that one of their most identifiable (but as of yet unnamed) straight characters will soon be coming out of the closet, according to a report....

 

Didio said DC's position had shifted on the subject since he said in an interview last year that any homosexual characters would be new introductions, and that none of their existing characters' sexual orientations would shift.

 

DC vice president Bob Wayne likened DC's change in tune to President Obama's shift on gay marriage, explaining that DC's policy “has evolved,” the report says.

Gay Superheroes Are Coming.

Carl's Jr. Ice Cream Brrger (WTF?)

What's Wrong with America? 

Foodbeast is reporting that fast food chain Carl’s Jr. is testing out a new product called the Ice Cream Brrrger in Orange County, California. The Brrrger is a burger-shaped ice cream novelty consisting of chocolate ice cream and “condiments” sandwiched between two sugar cookies. Wow, talk about troubling ...funny or both. Has anyone walked in the cereal section of you're local supermarket lately? It's pretty much a candy store. Every single cereal box is promoting anything but breakfast . Oh yes, I want Reeses flavored cereal mom! Please let me have it!!

Spider Man Rarities

Posted 2012-05-18 18:25:30 | Views: 6,748

He appeared in the last issue of a canceled magazine called Amazing Fantasy. He broke lots of rules about superheroes. He wasn't rich, didn't have a lair, tried to use his powers to earn money first, was motivated by guilt rather than altruism or revenge, was often hunted by the same people he helped, and he had the gall to be a teenager who was his own hero rather than a sidekick or mascot with the word "boy" or "kid" in his alias. And today, it almost seems strange to think of a comic book universe that existed before him.


Created in 1962 by Steve Ditko and Stan Lee, Peter Parker was a teenager with an incredible talent for science. Although he was funny and handsome, his interests in studies rather than sports made him a "nerd" in high school. One day, Peter attended a demonstration in radiation and particle accelerators and wound up bitten by a spider that had apparently been mutated by the experiments. The spider's radically altered venom coursed through his bloodstream, altering his biology. Within hours, Peter was powerful. He could leap 30 feet straight up into the air, cling to any surface by simple force of will, bench press several tons, and detect oncoming danger. His reflexes actually let him dodge bullets (with enough distance) and he was now agile enough to even balance on a single finger without difficulty. He had gained the "proportionate speed, strength and agility of a spider."

 

Initially, Peter tried to earn money off of his new powers by becoming the amazing Spider-Man, a costumed stunt performer. But when he arrogantly decided NOT to stop a robbery happening in front of him, karma came calling. Days later, the same criminal killed Peter's Uncle Ben during a botched burglary attempt. Realizing that his own apathy had caused this and that his great power came with great responsibility, Peter changed the direction of his life and began a career as a vigilante. While the Fantastic Four protected Earth from cosmic menaces and the Avengers fought gods and time traveling terrorists, Spider-Man fought these kinds of villains but also made a point to patrol the streets every day, hunting down thieves, gangsters, killers, rapists and anyone else that tried to escape the law. He's feared by the criminals of New York and loved by the fans of Marvel Comics and now he has a new title coming out, The Avenging Spider-Man.


So if you're picking up the first issue of this new series but aren't too familiar with Spidey outside of video games and movies, here are some things you may want to know about the wall-crawler and his history.

Censorship Towels (Awesome)

Clever: Censorship Towels 

Nudity: it can make things uncomfortable in the gym sauna and the FCC does not condone it. But hey, it's funny! And it's even funnier when it's covered up by shoddy pixelation. The Censorship Towel brings to life the familiar blur used to conceal butts on television.

 

Unfortunately it's just a concept. It comes from the Carmichael Collective, a Minneapolis-based company, that produces "creativity for creativity's sake," meaning they come up with a lot of cool ideas that don't necessarily turn into products. So it's back to your boring, prank-free linens. Or the tasteful nudity to which someone of your physique is obviously entitled.

Booty Beauty All The Way

Posted 2012-05-15 22:18:13 | Views: 7,123

Nothing quite lends itself to consumer confidence like a big ole butt, so fashion & beauty brand Bootie Babe brings us tushy-shaped nail polish, perfume and backpacks. I’ve always wanted to carry around my booty beauty products in my booty backpack. Then again I’m also completely nuts, so anything I say should be taken with a grain of salt anti-crazy pills. Seriously though, I can’t help but assume that a perfume in an ass-shaped container is gonna smell like ass. Butt (!!!) who am I to judge? As long as the nail polish smells like nail polish, I’m all good! I love that smell. I hold it in the same regard as the smell of gas and that’s really saying something (I’m saying I’m banned from Exxon). $4+

Best Deal Man Has Ever Made

Posted 2012-04-28 23:00:29 | Views: 6,726

Dogs have given us their absolute all.  We are the center of their universe.  We are the focus of their love and faith and trust.  They serve us in return for scraps.  It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made.
