The "Shit log" of Christmas





Today I learned about the Tió de Nadal, a part of a Christmas tradition from Catalonia (which is, for people who don't know, an eastern region of Spain.) Every year a large log is hollowed out, and "fed" with treats, candy, and other yummy things through the month of December, whereupon on Christmas eve the children beat the log with sticks and scream "SHIT LOG! SHIT LOG!" after which the log excretes the candy for their enjoyment. When the Tió is finished shitting, it will poop out a picked herring, or a piece of garlic. Not making this up.

The log is nicknamed the "Caga tió" or "Shitting Log," and usually has two legs, a goofy face, and wears a traditional Catalan stocking cap. Apparently this tradition is pretty widespread and commercialized in Spain, kind of the same way we here in America take the kids to go see Santa Claus at the mall, except if Santa was made of wood and you had to brutalize him with a stick whilst commanding him to defecate candy.

Merry Christmas everyone!


SHIT LOG!

Shikari (1963) - Another Indian King Kong movie

Since I posted a link to Banglar King Kong last time, I think it's only fair that we check out India's version of the Kong story. Shikari (1963) loosely follows the same plot, but somehow there's a mad scientist in there somewhere. Also, expect a few good musical numbers too.

Watch on Veoh below:

Banglar King Kong

One thing I can never get enough of is bad giant monkey movies. In 2010, this unlicensed King Kong rip off was produced in Bangladesh. Not only does it feature quite possibly the worst looking giant gorilla suit ever, but practically all of the special effects shots of note are stolen from the De Laurentis 1976 King Kong movie.  On top of all that, it's a musical. I present to you the awesomeness that is Banglar King Kong:







The movie can be viewed streaming from the above links in it's entirety. There are no subtitles, but it's not like you really need them anyway. If anyone knows where I can purchase an English subbed version of this movie on DVD please leave a comment. 

Enjoy!

Anonymous Hacks Westboro Baptist Church Website During Live Confrontation

This is some truly funny stuff. Apparently the WBC has been trying to gain publicity by hoaxing a "war" with Anonymous, who also evidently were not interested. At 8:20 in the video Anon defaces the WBC website, while they are talking. Owned.


Screencap of the defaced WBC page.
