HENRY ROLLINS: WHO REALLY GIVES A FUCK WHAT KIM DAVIS THINKS? (LA Weekly)
Suddenly, Kim Davis is just one of millions of Americans with a rap sheet, who ate cheese sandwiches on your dime, a tiny spot in your rearview mirror as you blaze a trail to the record store. While you're there, you might want to see if there is a copy of DEVO's perfect second album, Duty Now for the Future. If so, acquire it and report to your nearest stereo ASAP.
Birthday Party Princess: Melsa
We all make mistakes. That's what everyone says, right? "Nobody's perfect, everyone makes mistakes." I say it to my friends all the time, and I mean it. But for some reason, I never mean for it to apply to ME. I don't make mistakes at parties. I especially DON'T make mistakes that might disappoint children. I don't make mistakes. But I made a big mistake yesterday.
Tara Marie: 7 Fan Works So Good They Were Adopted By The Creators (Cracked)
One of the worst insults you can say to a professional creator is "This is like something a fan would make." Usually, that means it's really, really bad, or that they made some characters fuck for no reason. However, there are times when a fan ascends from the unwashed masses and presents a completely self-made work that kicks the original's ass -- so much that the pros have no choice but to make it official.
Quincy Magoo (or simply Mr. Magoo) is a cartoon character created at the UPA animation studio in 1949. Voiced by Jim Backus, Quincy Magoo is a wealthy, short-statured retiree who gets into a series of comical situations as a result of his nearsightedness, compounded by his stubborn refusal to admit the problem. However, through uncanny streaks of luck, the situation always seems to work itself out for him, leaving him no worse than before.
Affected people (or animals) consequently tend to think that he is a lunatic, rather than just being nearsighted. In later cartoons he is also an actor, and generally a competent one except for his visual impairment.
Magoo has won 2 Oscars for Academy Award for Best Short Subject (Cartoons).

Two New York legislators are leading a campaign to designate Stonewall Inn as the first national park honoring LGBT history.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and U.S. Rep. Jerrold Nadler made their announcement Sunday in front of the Greenwich Village tavern that was the scene of a 1969 uprising at a key moment for the nascent gay rights movement.
"When we look at our country, we have recognized women's rights, civil rights, all kinds of rights," Gillibrand said. "The time has come to give this part of our history an imprimatur of national importance."
The two Democrats were joined by other elected officials and members of the National Parks Conservation Association and the Human Rights Campaign.
Gillibrand says she and Nadler are first asking President Barack Obama to declare Stonewall a monument. A congressional vote on park status would come later.
The elderly former Soviet military officer who answers the door is known in the West as "The man who saved the world."
A movie with that title, which hits theaters in the United States on Friday, tells the harrowing story of Sept. 26, 1983, when Stanislav Petrov made a decision credited by many with averting a nuclear war.
An alarm had gone off that night, signaling the launch of U.S. intercontinental ballistic missiles, and it was up to the 44-year-old lieutenant colonel to determine, and quickly, whether the attack on the Soviet Union was real.
"I realized that I had to make some kind of decision, and I was only 50/50," Petrov told The Associated Press.
Despite the data coming in from the Soviet Union's early-warning satellites over the United States, Petrov decided to consider it a false alarm. Had he done otherwise, the Soviet leadership could have responded by ordering a retaliatory nuclear strike on the United States.

Using the astronomical chart on a table in the covered tower, visitors aim their gaze along worn arrows to huge, upright stones hundreds of feet away. Beyond each slab of granite, clearings stretch the eye to the horizon on a dazzling day in late summer New Hampshire.
On Wednesday's autumnal equinox, people will flock to the woods near the Massachusetts state line, watch the sun rise or fall over the massive chunks of granite and decide for themselves whether they're standing amid relics of ancient history or pure hooey.
This is "America's Stonehenge," a weird, one-acre grouping of rock configurations named for the mysterious formation on England's Salisbury Plain. It has drawn believers who say it's a thousand or more years old and skeptics who say the evidence suggests it was the work of a 19th century shoemaker.
For $12 visitors get to meander along well-trod footpaths through walls of stacked granite, some overtopped with slabs that weigh several tons to form cave-like enclosures like the "Sundeck" chamber and "V-hut." The spooky centerpiece is the "Oracle" chamber, complete with what is billed as a secret bed and a speaking tube where words spoken from inside the chamber could be heard outside at the equally eerie "Sacrificial Table."
Anthropologists and archaeologists believe America's Stonehenge was more likely the homestead of shoemaker Jonathan Pattee, who settled here in 1823. In his 2006 book "The Archaeology of New Hampshire: Exploring 10,000 Years in the Granite State," Plymouth State University archaeologist David Starbuck called America's Stonehenge "unquestionably provocative, puzzling and, above all, controversial."
The central US state of Oklahoma has gone from registering two earthquakes a year to nearly two a day and scientists point to a controversial culprit: wastewater injection wells used in fracking.
Located in the middle of the country, far from any major fault lines, Oklahoma experienced 585 earthquakes of a magnitude of 3.0 or greater in 2014. That's more than three times as many as the 180 which hit California last year.
"It's completely unprecedented," said George Choy, a seismologist at the US Geological Survey.
As of last month, Oklahoma has already experienced more than 600 quakes strong enough to rattle windows and rock cars. The biggest was a 4.5-magnitude quake that hit the small town of Crescent.
"We are the only state where once this problem came up, we just kept going (with fracking)," said Johnson Bridgwater, the executive director of the Oklahoma chapter of the Sierra Club, a prominent environmental group.
Nearly four years after dozens of black-clad police rappelled into his New Zealand mansion and cut him from a safe room, flamboyant German tech entrepreneur and would-be hip-hop star Kim Dotcom may finally be about to face the music.
A New Zealand court hearing starting on Monday will determine whether Dotcom will face charges of copyright infringement, racketeering and money laundering in the United States related to the Megaupload file-sharing site he founded in 2005.
Well known for his hip-hop inspired photo shoots with scantily clad women and luxury cars, Dotcom had assets including computers, art works, a pink Cadillac and bank accounts holding millions of dollars frozen after the 2012 raid in the hills outside Auckland.
U.S. authorities say Dotcom and three co-accused Megaupload executives cost film studios and record companies more than $500 million and generated more than $175 million by encouraging paying users to store and share copyrighted material, such as movies and TV shows.
Monday's hearing will be watched by developers like Dotcom working in the grey areas of the law prevalent at the Internet's cutting edge for signs of how far Washington is willing to go to protect U.S. copyright holders, said Tom Pullar-Strecker, who covers technology for Fairfax Media in New Zealand
A Georgia man was ordered to pay $1.6 million in fines and restitution - the largest sum ever levied against someone for a U.S. wildlife crime - after pleading guilty to offenses involving the illegal transport of white-tailed deer, U.S. officials said.
Benjamin Chason was sentenced this summer, but his case was sealed until this week in federal court in southern Ohio. Chason, 61, from Climax, Georgia, was prosecuted along with Donald Wainwright Sr., 49, of Live Oak, Florida.
The pair owned a hunting preserve in Ohio called Valley View Whitetails, where they charged hunters thousands of dollars to kill deer, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said in a statement.
Working together, they illegally attempted to ship deer that had not been certified to be disease-free in the United States. One shipment was intercepted en route to Georgia when regulators observed antlers sticking out of a cargo trailer, according to U.S. wildlife officials.
Both men pleaded guilty to multiple violations of the Lacey Act, which was the first federal law to protect wildlife when it passed in 1900, according to the statement.

The tradition of building human towers or âcastellsâ dates back to the 18th century and takes place during festivals in Catalonia, where âcollesâ or teams compete to build the tallest and most complicated towers.

An elderly orange tabby cat slept calmly on a table in the chart room of the CSS Acadia on Sunday as dozens of people dropped by to stroke his head and give him kisses in honour of his retirement.
Erik The Red, named after the famed Viking, has been the rodent control officer aboard the ship on the Halifax waterfront for more than 15 years.
He took up the role in 1999, when the malnourished stray kitten followed Acadia shipkeeper Stephen Read back to the vessel.
Read joked that Erik must have heard about the position through the "kitty cat grapevine," as the former Acadia mouser Clara was not doing a very good job at the time of catching and killing rodents.
"He's my buddy, and a valued co-worker. I've known three of the four rodent control officers who have been onboard this ship since 1981, and he's been the best that I've seen. He was the most efficient and the most consistent."

"The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials" edged out Johnny Depp's "Black Mass" at box office, as the two films split young and old moviegoers in half on the first weekend of the fall movie season.
20th Century Fox's sequel to "The Maze Runner" earned an estimated $30.3 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. While that came in slightly below the debut of the 2014 young-adult dystopian sci-fi original, it counted as a win for a movie that cost $61 million to make.
Warner Bros.' "Black Mass," starring Johnny Depp as Boston gangster Whitey Bulger, premiered with $23.4 million. That's a strong sum for an R-rated adult drama, and it stabilizes a bad box-office run for Depp following "Mortdecai," ''Transcendence" and "The Lone Ranger."
"Sicario," the Lionsgate drug-war thriller starring Emily Blunt, Brolin and Benicio del Toro, opened in New York and Los Angeles ahead of its expansion over the next two weeks. In just six theaters, it took in $390,000 with an excellent per-screen average of $65,000.
Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday:
1. "The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials," $30.3 million ($43.3 million international).
2. "Black Mass," $23.4 million.
3. "The Visit," $11.3 million.
4. "The Perfect Guy," $9.7 million.
5. "Everest," $7.6 million ($28.2 million international).
6. "War Room," $6.3 million.
7. "A Walk in the Woods," $2.8 million.
8. "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation," $2.3 million.
9. "Straight Outta Compton," $2 million.
10. "Grandma," $1.6 million.
