  1. Sell-In: Stop your favorite musicians from selling out!

    Bob Dylan recently caused an uproar by appearing in a Super Bowl ad for Chrysler. Fans were furious that their idol would betray them like this, giving them no say in how much money he makes and specifically how he makes it.

    Selling out has been a constant concern for fans of artists. By accepting money from big companies, artists are engaging in a filthy act that almost literally amounts to pooping in their fans’ mouths.

    But thankfully, selling out is on its way out, thanks to a revolutionary new website called Sell-In.

  4. Free Jahar (by downloading my mixtape)

    Hey y’all, it’s me, Troy Crossley. You may know me as the talented young rapper using his music to get the word out about the innocence of accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar (Jahar) Tsarnaev.

    But I’m not just an aspiring musician and entrepreneur (I am those things, though) – I’m also a champion of social justice, as well as an extremely gifted rapper, but also the social justice thing, too.

    Jahar is innocent, and I have proof. (Read more) »

    4 reasons Hugh Grant and Hulk Hogan are the same person

    Here’s proof that the star of Notting Hill and the six-time WWF champion play the same cultural role, even though they seem like they’re worlds apart:

    1. They’re both performing artists whom no one wants to see as an “artist.”

    Hugh Grant hasn’t just never been nominated for an Oscar. Hugh Grant has zero Academy Award nominations even though he starred in movies nominated for Best Picture in 1993 and 1994 and 1995. That means the Academy paid very close attention to his acting in multiple quality films, yet still snubbed him hard. Hugh has had to settle for the mild praise of a single Golden Globe win for his role in Four Weddings and a Funeral, beating out “respected” thespians like Jim Carrey and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

    Hulk Hogan, of course, has the same problem. Read on. »

    Sometimes we have less than perfect ideas for Slacktory posts. So I ask some colleagues for help.

    Everyone’s wearing Hobbit Fashion

    The Hobbit has broken box office records and, as with every hit movie, those in the know have already begun reflecting the trends from the big screen in the way they dress.

    Rings

    Rings have always been a fun accessory, but with the advent of Hobbit Fashion, they’re a must have for any outfit. Gold rings, platinum rings, plastic rings, rings made of string, rings that make you invisible and turn you evil, are all good options. Essentially, just put as many rings on your fingers as possible. Put so many rings on that you can’t bend your fingers. You won’t be able to open doors or point at things, but fashion wasn’t made for utility. For an extra touch of class carry around a phone that’s ringing, and never answer. Who’s calling? Fashion.

    Zazzle decides what to promote on Election Day

    “Steve, what day did you send out the election-related merchandise email newsletter?”

    “Oh, months ago! Back when it made any sense for someone to buy a design that would be rendered obsolete tomorrow! Sorry just a sec I need to go write a… thing.”

    The weirdest spam email wants love and commitment, not boners

    If there’s one thing we all know about spam emails, it’s this: Spam robots want to talk about your wiener. They want to sell pills for your wiener, or they want to touch your wiener and you should really click through to their profile; they’re just so lonely and a good wiener touch is all they want.

    For over a decade, spam emails have focused on sex and hookups and porn and V 1 A G R A, all in an attempt to speak to your most basic carnal desires. That’s all I thought they ever did.

    At least I thought that up until yesterday, when I finally got a mature spam email.

    Check out how unhorny this spam robot sounded. »

  10. Every supposed picture of Hurricane Sandy over New York City is definitely real

    I live in New York and this is super-real:

    This is how storms work. They just appear suddenly, while boats are still out on the water and people are just all out on Liberty Island. Even climate change happens in, like, a half hour.

    Here’s how storms attack New York City. »
