Overnight Open Thread (7-2-2012)

Due to declining participation and rather disappointing spring Nielsens management has decided to switch over to an all cute animals ONT format until further notice.


Just kidding. For now.

But seriously check out the profit margins on pet and fútbol blogs and ask yourself what a half-way investment savvy ewok would do.

More Lawyer Crazy: Carreon vs The Oatmeal Update

When last we checked in attorney Charles Carreon was suing Matt Inman, the National Wildlife Federation and the American Cancer Society. Now he's trying to get a temporary restraining order against IndieGoGo, the company that handles donations to the two charities, to keep them from disbursing funds.

But there's a method to Carreon's crazy- since *he* also donated to Inman's fund, if the disbursement is stopped, then he has some kind of standing sue Inman for fraud.

Oh and Carreon's wife seems like just as pleasant a person as her husband.


Weird Americans in Music

Sure Frank Zappa and Sun Ra are on the list but Screamin Jay Hawkins deserves more fame for being so out there back in the 50's. How this song got made according to SJH:

"I wanted this to be a bluesy love song, but my manager brought chicken, ribs,? and whiskey to the recording session. We all got drunk and came out with this weird, spooky version. I dont even remember recording the song."

33 An Unlucky Number for Tom Cruise

It looks like Tom Cruise's unlucky number is 33 - as all three of his ex-wives called it quits when they reached that very same age.

Mimi Rogers, Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes were all in their early thirties when their marriages to the Hollywood leading man took a turn for the worse.

Fans of the heartbroken star searched for a meaning, some postulating that the number 33 is related somehow to Mr Cruise's religion, Scientology.

Well clearly next time Tom needs to marry a younger Scientologist babe.

Plus here is a TomKat timeline - I didn't realize that when Tom was jumping on Oprah's couch, he had only known Katie for less than 6 weeks. Who does that?

Or that he created a fake movie just so he could meet the hottest young actresses in Hollywood. Okay that last part is genius/creepy depending on how well it works.

Plus Tom really, really believes in this scientology stuff.


The Yahoo AoSHQ group. Bla bla bla.

And don't forget about the Job Bank.

And my twitter thang.
