Make your own magazine

No more weddings.

Posted by indiadebeaufort Views: 7,312
Everything begins with an idea.  It might not be the brightest, it might not be groundbreaking, and you are most likely not the first to think of it, but it might be something worth working for. It might be something you are meant to see through. It might just BE something.

I have an idea. I have this idea that I might be really good at editing. In my experience doing something you love, usually makes you pretty good at it. Invested. Passionate. So I decided I would open up shop. I am going to find pieces from all over, bring those pieces to one place, and make them accessible to like minded people. Pieces I chose. Handpicked. Love.

My problem is I am a YES person. YES I will show at NYFW. YES I will give the MC Hammer pants a try. YES I will bake your wedding cake (almost always regret that one). And so here I am, YES I really think I can do this. After all how hard can it be? I'm not reinventing the wheel. Buy some old stuff, mark it up, flog it at the local flea market. Have a lovely time.

Turns out it's a teensy bit more complicated than that. I can't speak for the rest of the world, but here's how it goes in Los Angeles...

First you'll need a Sellers Permit (thats an hour or so online). You need to register your ficticious business name (thats a trip to the court house, get prepared to wait). Next you post an ad in your local paper (It's an old school law that makes your business legit, and I kinda love that it's never been changed). Some merchandise requires a police permit. I require two police permits and one state. That involves an orientation at the police department and a whole load of forms. You gotta get your business licence (City Hall for that one). You need to open up a bank account. You're going to need a federal tax ID and you have to handle your income tax etc. And thats not even half of it. Every time I visit a new office, I find out I need a new permit / license / form. There are City laws, County laws, State laws and Federal laws. It's a lot to follow, and it's not like you're handed a list. You're essentially covering your arse blind. And I am a company of one. Add an employee to that payroll and it's a whole other can of worms.

Is it worth it? YES. To me, so far, it is. Because all the red tape is only making me want it more. The anticipation is fantastic! I am literally chomping at the bit to buy my first load of old junk. And I have to say, all in all, the government officials have been kind and helpful. Especially at the Board of Equalization. They're my favourite. Thanks Sarah. 

By the time I sell my first piece, I will have achieved something great. I think it will be a moment in my life. Another goal I just went for. I am proud of that. Point is, if you like my blog and you like my taste, it's going to be available shortly. As long as no one else gets married. My oven needs a break.

More to come. ;-)

Toddler in Tears Expecting Iron Man

Posted by HorrorBBQ Views: 7,200

Robert Downey Jr. made a toddler cry because he wasn't the 'real' Iron Man.The actor - best known for playing the superhero and his billionaire alter ego Tony Stark - left 18-month-old superfan Jaxson Denno in floods of tears because he wasn't wearing his character's trademark red and gold suit in public.

Heather Denno, Jaxson's mother, was left to console her sobbing son, who was devastated to discover his favourite Marvel comics hero was a work of fiction.She told People magazine: 'He was fine as soon as he talked to him. [He] was so confused because I kept telling him it was Iron Man and he knew it wasn't. Well, not Iron Man in the suit.'

Peeping Tom Installs Hidden Cam in Bathroom

Posted by HorrorBBQ Views: 10,263

Christopher Galt, 25, admitted voyeurism after footage taken from the device showed him installing and checking on the equipment on several occasions.

Householders became aware of the camera when they spotted a green flashing light coming from the extractor vent above the bath.

Initially they thought it was some kind of alarm but on closer inspection they discovered it was a USB camera. DC Steve Jenkinson, of Lancashire Constabulary’s public protection unit, said: “The people who discovered it checked to see what was on the camera.

“When they saw that it was themselves they were shocked and immediately reported it to the police.”



A peeping Tom installed a hidden camera in a bathroom to spy on people using the facilities. 

Fucking Gross! 

Galt, of Wentworth Avenue, Inskip, near Preston, was arrested but denied he had been using the camera to spy on the householders, telling officers he had installed it to check if his dogs had been damaging the bathroom.

However he later pleaded guilty to voyeurism at Preston Crown Court.

The householders, who lived in a rented property, left the house that day and have since found other accommodation.

DC Jenkinson said it was not possible to say exactly how long the camera had been hidden in the bathroom but it could have been there for a number of months.

Galt was handed a community order and ordered to undergo two years supervision with the probation service.

Works by Rudy Shepherd

Posted by ParisCollective Views: 6,858

Rudy Shepherd’s latest work explores the nature of evil through the mediums of painting and sculpture. This exploration involves investigations into the lives of criminals and victims of crime. He explores the complexity of these stories and the grey areas between innocence and guilt in a series of paintings and drawings of both the criminals and the victims, making no visual distinctions between the two. By presenting the people first and the stories second a space is created for humanity to be reinstilled into the lives of people who have been reduced to mere headlines by the popular press.

Going along with these portraits is a series of sculptures called the Black Rock Negative Energy Absorbers. They are a group of sculptures meant to remove negative energy from people allowing them to respond to life with the more positive aspects of their personality. It is on one hand a response to living in New York City for the last seven years and witnessing the madness that take place on the subway system, and an approach to political art that hopes to push the dialogue started in the late 80’s/early 90’s forward into 2008 by looking at the problems of society in a more comprehensive way, incorporating the rhetoric of new age mythology, and ancient religions.

What Next? - Chicken Diapers...really?

Posted by DarlingPD Views: 11,148

Baker told HuffPost Weird News that the family has been involved in the poultry show community for a long time (yes, there is such a thing as a poultry show community) but the little cluckers kept messing themselves up. So she made a diaper that fastens over the chicken's tail feathers and, with the help of a paper towel, keeps everything clean. Plus, it's machine washable.

"Everyone wanted to know where we got them -- and the orders started rolling in," Baker said. "I have a lot of customers that keep their chickens in the house full-time, and they love the diapers."

Her business, Pampered Poultry, also helps out humans. She pays employees at a women's sewing cooperative in Munoz, Dominican Republic to create the diapers, then picks the finished product up once every couple of months.

The chicken diaper colors -- including Ocean Blue, Parrot Green and Purple Rust -- are only available while supplies last. You can get one for $12.50 at or check out Baker's chicken saddles and other attire.

Chicken Diapers? 

Are you tired of your delicious meal pooping on your carpet? Do you want your chicken to be the cock of the town? Then get yourself a pair of chicken diapers. Julie Baker, a farmer in Claremont, N.H.,invented the poultry couture to keep the horrific mess of chicken excrement off your floors -- while your chicken stays in high fashion.

ABOUT: On March 2, 2011, JR won the TED prize at the TED Conference in Long Beach, California, and called for the creation of a global participatory art project with the potential to change the world. This project is called INSIDE OUT.

Inspired by JR’s large‐format street "pastings", INSIDE OUT gives everyone the opportunity to share their portrait and make a statement for what they stand for. It is a global platform for people to share their untold stories and transform messages of personal identity into works of public art.

Each INSIDE OUT group action around the world is documented, archived and exhibited online. Over 120,000 posters have been sent to more than 108 countries since March 2011.

The INSIDE OUT project has traveled from Ecuador to Nepal, from Mexico to Palestine, inspiring group actions on varied themes such as hope, diversity, gender-based violence, climate change... Discover the extent of the project through some selected actions.

What's Wrong with Men Today?

Posted by HorrorBBQ Views: 7,124
"You know whats wrong with men today? They shave their damn balls and act more female then a cat in heat down the alleyway. You have to mix up modern with traditional dirty socks. Men shaving their backs...and not making their wives change their last should be ashamed of yourselves."

Old Man Crowely's Scoop 
Back in my day...we would hold babies like this...and we wouldn't be reported to the damn boys in blue. 




Have you seen Chuck Norris lately? He shaved his damn face and looks like a wet turkey ready for the oven. 
"Uncle Crowely's right. I am a disgrace ever since I shaved my face. I was getting pressured by my wife and her friends. It was the hardest battle I ever had to deal with. "

Let's take a look at the real Chuck Norris

This is little Chucky, he killed 5 Nazi's single handedly at this fine young age. 
No explanation here folks. Balls of steel. 

1, 2, 3...goooo!!!
Damn...this guy has a point. 
All these years...I tried to be clean around women...have manners and I realize I was really just slowly losing my man juice. Let me call my girlfriend Britney and ask her if she thinks I been losing my "man" edge.

Marvin the Martian just won the elections in Mars. 
Marvin the Martian has just been elected ruler of Mars. It is unprecedented how he won with so many disadvantages, one of them being he doesn't have a mouth. World leaders spent the day puzzled with the outcome of the election. Marvin did get a warm welcome from Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Satan also approved and sent a telegram with candy dried turds. The US state department expressed concern with Marvin.  In power he can funnel lasers to North Korea.
