This Photo Is the Most Beautiful Thing You’ll See Today – Seriously!

I’m not link-baiting. This is for real; and I won’t say much about this photo, because in this case, the cliche “a picture paints a thousands words” doesn’t even cover it. What did I tell you??? This photo was taken by Melissa Rensen of London, Ontario, Canada while her plane was flying above the clouds. […]

These Pets in Halloween Costumes Might Make Your Costume Look Lame

Halloween is the time when humans go all crazy about dressing up as someone (or something) they’ve always wanted to be. But who’s to say that animals – pets in particular – can’t do the same? Sure, pets can’t dress themselves up, but some owners go the extra mile to make sure their pets are […]

The Totoro Baby Bouncer Will Calm Your Baby Like Nothing Else

Anyone who has watched My Neighbor Totoro will know just how cute the ginormous creature is. No matter how huge he is, he is adorable and brings happiness to children – and adults, too. Of course, it helps that the animated movie has Hayao Miyazaki behind it. So it’s not surprise that blogger Cation Designs […]

15 of the Scariest Movie Posters You Won’t Want to See

Horror movies are not my thing, although I have been foraying into the genre in the past months. I’ve taken things slowly, starting TV shows that give me the creeps. Then I was caught aback with The Conjuring. There’s one thing in common during all those times I spend watching horror movies/TV shows: I have […]

Not Watching Gotham? Now You Have a Reason to: Morena Baccarin!

We loved her as Inara in Firefly, just as much as we loved her as Anna in V. Now, Morena Baccarin is going to be in Gotham, which has received rather good ratings, although some hardcore comics fans were skeptical after the first episode. If you haven’t started watching Gotham yet, then if there’s one […]

When Pigs Drink Whiskey, You Get Whiskey-Flavored Bacon

D’oh. That was pretty obvious, wasn’t it? Although in this case, the pork hasn’t been made into bacon yet. But it’s just a matter of time. Also, who would think of giving pigs whiskey to drink? If you told me that yesterday, I’d say what a waste of whiskey! Source However, it has been proven […]

Before The Conjuring, There Was Annabelle

That’s the tagline in the poster I saw earlier when I went for a short walk. The billboard was humongous, and one just couldn’t ignore this face. Since I saw that billboard in the underpass, I felt chilled to the bone. Let’s just say that horror movies and I don’t mix well, and The Conjuring […]
