VIDEO: Super Mario Beads — Just Watch This And Thank Me Later

Some creative souls in Sweden animated a Super Mario Bros. adventure with beads, and the end result is nothing short of awesome, amazing, genius, and great. I think this may be one of the best things I’ve ever seen on YouTube.

For two more shorter adventures, check out the filmmakers’ SMB playlist here. Oh, and here’s a behind-the-scenes / making-of video, which is conveniently in Swedish.

WOW: Louboutins in CAKE FORM


Every so often, I post some amazing cake that my friend Mark Randazzo has whipped up at his bakery, Mark Joseph Cakes. Well, this latest offering for a Trump Soho bridal shower is one of his most impressive, at least in terms of recreations. It’s a cake in the form of a Christian Louboutin shoebox with a red-soled sugar shoe on the side. Color me impressed. I fully expect this to take Pinterest by storm.

VIDEO: McDonalds + Rice Cooker = Stoner’s Delight?

Some intrepid culinary pioneer in Japan decided that a mere Big Mac with Fries meal (with a side of McNuggets) wasn’t tasty enough on its own (ed. note — it is), and so this daring person opted to put the whole thing in a rice cooker and press go. I’m not sure I’ll be putting this on my slate of Adventures in Domesticity plans, but then again…

VIDEO: Epic Cinnamon Challenge FAIL

In case you haven’t seen this video yet, do yourself a favor and watch it now. And then remind yourself to never, ever do the cinnamon challenge (attempt to swallow a spoonful of cinnamon without spitting it out or barfing).

Taste Awards Prove To Be The Most Embarrassingly Amateurish, Unintentionally Hilarious Awards Show Of All Time


Last night, a friend of mine offered me a free ticket to the Taste Awards (also known as the Tasty Awards, depending on which part of the official website one visits), which is a burgeoning celebration of food, fashion, drink, and style — four realms that most certainly deserve a glitzy award show. I was quite excited to attend, and while I knew this event wouldn’t have the same celebrity wattage as the Critics Choice Awards down the street (which featured, you know, celebrities and production values), I still looked forward to seeing some of my favorite food and lifestyle personalities honored.

It was therefore somewhat shocking that a ceremony celebrating style and fine living would be executed in such an unstylish, shoddy manner. Let’s not bury the lede here: in the ten years I’ve spent in Los Angeles, this was by far the most inept, bumbling, and downright amateurish formal event I’d ever attended. It made the Fox Reality Channel’s “Really” Awards look like the Oscars. It made the Grammys look like the Nobel Peace Prize. It made the People’s Choice Awards look like the Kennedy Center Honors. Have I hammered home the point yet? I’ve seen preschool awards delivered with more grace than these things.

On the plus side, the Taste Awards offered up a never-ending supply of unintentional comedy. At least it was funny to me as I went for free. The same can’t be said for the poor saps who spent $125.00 on tickets on this fiasco.

Full details about the event after the jump…

The Inevitable Dance Song from Stanley of ‘The Office.’ Wait, what?

Leslie David Baker (a.k.a. Stanley from The Office) just released a music video for his song “2 Be Simple.” I’m not sure if it’s a joke or not, but one thing I can say with certainty: I’m confused.
