Fugitive caught after being spotted in horror film photos

I imagine most fugitives would want to keep a low profile, but not so for Jason Stange, of Olympia, WA, who was found guilty of armed bank robbery in 2006. Rather than show up for probation, after a 117-month sentence, he was busy playing the part of a deranged Planned Parenthood doctor in the low-budget horror film, Marla Mae. Then last week, an article ran in The Olympian about the movie with lots of photos of 44-year-old Stange. Finally his days in the spotlight caught up with him. According to The News Tribune:

Brandon Roberts, the film’s producer, called Stange a talented actor who was well-liked by the cast and crew. He said the film was rewritten to suit Stange, who had “really nailed the audition” and brought a different element to the role than what the film’s creators originally sought.

Filming had just ended, and everyone was checking out the article in Friday morning’s newspaper when Stange headed out in his costume to buy cigarettes, Roberts said. Agents arrested Stange and allowed him to return the costume to the filming location.

Stange's leading role will remain in the film, which is scheduled for release in 2016.

Turkey testicle eat-off founder is pretty relaxed about nearby town copying his festival

TTF-Food-Turkey_Testicles

There are plenty of turkey testicles for everyone.

That's the message of peace given to the world by the owner of Parkside Pub, a Chicago area bar that's been holding its Turkey Testicle Festival for 32 years. It now faces competition from a similar bird-balls-eating festival in East Dundee. Same time, same date, same delicacy: turkey testicles.

From an article in the Daily Herald, a local paper covering the Chicago suburbs:

Citing a need for a family-oriented fall event, East Dundee leaders announced this week they'll be holding their first Turkey Testicle Festival, from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Nov. 25, the day before Thanksgiving.

That's the same name and time frame for a 33-year tradition in not-so-distant Huntley.

J.R. Westberg, whose Parkside Pub has been hosting a Turkey Testicle Festival for 32 years, took the competition in stride. "Our only thought to this was that there was no originality placed on their event," he said, noting that Parkside's fest often brings in more than 4,000 attendees.

"We've perfected the execution over the years," Westberg said. "Thirty-three years of tradition is probably not going away for us."

But East Dundee downtown businessman Cliff Surges, who is organizing the fledgling event, said the village is not trying to upstage or compete with the Huntley event; there are plenty of turkey testicles to go around.

"Huntley has their market," he said. "We're looking at a different demographic coming in. There's more than enough to go around for everybody."

"Citing a need for a family-oriented fall event," they say.

Baffling Telugu film sequence from the 80s

It's listed as Adavi Donga (1985), but I am not sure what I just watched.

Latent doglizards of cheeseglopping pizza-ads

Take one Google Inceptionism neural-net system, which, when fed its own output over and over, begins to hallucinate dogish-lizardoids in random noise; add one supercut of cheese-porn pizza ads; stir thoroughly and strain. (via JWZ)
