WTF?!? FILES///POP KILLER///BART SIMPSON IS A SCIENTOLOGIST

January 28, 2009  |  News, Pop Killer, WTF???  |  Comments Off

Unbeknownst to SIMPSONS fans, it seems that that BART (aka: voice actor NANCY CARTWRIGHT) is a confirmed SCIENTOLOGIST and is now "auditing" at Thetan Level VII. At least that's the scoop fellow Scientologists got when they received this Cartwright-voiced "robocall" in support of her upcoming speaking engagement for the "religion." Looks like Matt & Trey just got enough raw material to make an entire new season of South Park out of. Fun fact: Cartwright—who earns $400K per Simpsons episode) was granted Scientology's Patron Laureate Award after donating $10 million to the faith in 2007 (the "religion's" second-in-command Tom Cruise only coughs up $5 mil)...

Survivor photo from the scene...

In case you've been living under a rock today, a US AIRWAYS plane crashed into the Hudson River in NYC today after a bird flew into the engine. Luckily, everyone survived after what's been described as a "masterful landing" in the frigid waters. Of course, they managed to pull the surviving "dude" out of the crowd for the commentary:

POP KILLER///POLITIKS///BARACK TAKES ON SPIDER MAN

Wow, BARACK really can do anything. Just when you thought walking on water was a cool OBAMA trick, he pulls out the big guns and grabs the cover of the upcoming AMAZING SPIDER MAN issue #583. Set to drop on January 14th as an Inauguration Day special issue, the comic's storyline follows Peter Parker, who, while shooting photos of Obama at the inauguration ceremony discovers a body double lurking in the wings and, after jumping into Spidey gear, tests the twin pres elects with a game of basketball before doing away with the game-less imposter who turns out to be the villainous Chameleon. A fit bump from the real O apparently caps off the ordeal. Yeah, the story sucks ass bad, but it is the cover of Spider Man, and Obama is a self-professed comic book nerd. Said the Big O on the campaign trail: "I was always into the Spider Man/Batman model. The guys who have too many powers like Superman always made me think they weren't really earning their superhero status. It's a little too easy. Whereas Spider-Man and Batman, they have some inner turmoil. They get knocked around a little bit." Too bad they couldn't drag Todd McFarlane back in to ink the book. Now that would be nerdy...

POP KILLER///WTF?!?///NEW “ELECTRIC COMPANY” SHOW SUCKS

January 10, 2009  |  Pop Killer, Video, WTF???  |  Comments Off

Wow, to take a killer funky 1970s kids show like the iconic ELECTRIC COMPANY and remake it as a pseudo R&B'd-out crap fest is quite the downer for a generation of '70s kids with vivid memory banks. For those born after 1980, the show was like a Superfly version of Sesame Street starring Bill Cosby and Morgan Freeman, among others, that implanted the sticky mojo of the era into the minds of impressionable young viewers in an epic & indelible way. Peep the difference:

WTF?!? FILES///WORLD RECORD 650 METER BASE JUMP IN DUBAI

December 2, 2008  |  News, Video, WTF???  |  Comments Off

It appears that as long as humans insist on constructing gigantic buildings, other, less smart humans will continue to climb and jump off them. Such was the case late last month when a Brit and a Frenchman (an unlikely alliance if ever there was one) managed to sneak to the top of the world's tallest building in (currently under construction), the BURJ DUBAI and jump off its top floor at 650 meters (2,132 feet). They lived, but honestly, we're not sure what the bigger risk was, jumping the building or going to jail in the United Arab Emirates...

"Yo, just don't forget about that 'First Artist' cabinet appointment you promised me!"

You can stop rubbing your eyes now, you read that headline correctly. That's right, miraculous as it may seem, Supertouch's own SHEPARD FAIREY was named one of GQ MAGAZINE's "Men of the Year." Selected for his Obama campaign artwork that helped push the Big O to the finish line the grimy wheatpaste street rat is now rubbing elbows with other men of the year Barack Obama, Leo DiCaprio, Micahel Phelps, and Sean Penn. Looks like Shep's gonna have to step up his couture game and fast. Don't think those Ramones shirts are gonna cut it anymore, buddy...
