Nancy Cartwright surprised the heck out of this 13-year old boy when she revealed she is the real voice of Bart Simpson. The look on his face, ha!
Usually we only get to see what a rocket launch looks like from ground level.
I’m 99.7% sure that “EAT FUCK KILL” is the playa’s first meme.
Let me explain.
It was the summer of 1997. Burning Man was right around the corner and I wanted to find just the right thing to gift out on the playa.
I was a regular at the local flea market here in the Bay Area and, on a Sunday just before the event, I went searching. I soon spotted a long open box full of black-and-white buttons. There were a few dozen of them and each one read “EAT FUCK KILL.” I knew right then and there that they were the perfect thing to bring to the desert. These irreverent buttons were exactly what I was looking for.
In small print, around the edge of the buttons, there was a clue to their origin: The Doom Generation. The buttons had been a promotional item for the poorly-reviewed 1995 film and now, two years later, they were just waiting for me at the flea market. That's me at the 1997 Burning Man, standing in front of the jankiest sign ever.

Right now, billions of neurons in your brain are working together to generate a conscious experience -- and not just any conscious experience, your experience of the world around you and of yourself within it.

Join Seth for a delightfully disorienting talk that may leave you questioning the very nature of your existence.
It's the 50th anniversary of San Francisco's "Summer of Love" and the city is blooming with ways to celebrate.
I don't know why you'd want to mess with a perfectly good breakfast like cold leftover pizza. But if you do, here's a video that shows you how to turn those cheesy slices into french toast.
Btw, here's that photo the "Doobie brothers" posted on /r/Trees at the end of the show.
This is huge, awesome news. In early 2018, experiential entertainment company Two Bit Circus will open the country's first micro-amusement park in downtown Los Angeles. The company's founders Brent Bushnell and Eric Gradman will house the high-tech park (that will have an old school carnival feel) inside of a former power plant in Lincoln Heights. The entrepreneurial duo are hoping it will be the first in a chain of such parks that will use technology to bring people together to play.
I remember years ago, after a long hot hike, a British friend of mine took a Thermos of Pimm's out of her picnic basket and proceeded to pour us drinks. I still remember how "civilized" I felt sipping my refreshing little plastic cup of Pimm's in the woods.
In August, you'll have a chance to own a piece of Smashing Pumpkins history when Billy Corgan sells off over 150 pieces of his used gear, including guitars, basses and amps. These items are all from his personal collection which include, according to the Reverb (where everything will be sold), "the core gear used on the albums and tours all of which helped define Corgan as a musician."
