NPR- We’re not going to bury the lede here: Bob Ross’ hair was actually straight. Just ask his longtime business partner, Annette Kowalski, who knew Ross better than anyone — he had just gotten out of the Air Force, and was unsuccessfully trying to make a living as a painter, she says.
“He got this bright idea that he could save money on haircuts. So he let his hair grow, he got a perm, and decided he would never need a haircut again,” Kowalski explains.
Before he could change it back, though, the perm became his company’s logo — Ross hated it. “He could never, ever, ever change his hair, and he was so mad about that,” Kowalski says. “He got tired of that curly hair.”
But viewers never got tired of Ross or his show, The Joy of Painting. With his soft, hypnotic voice, he’d bring his viewers in close as he created 30-minute masterpieces — distant mountain ranges, seascapes, forest scenes, always with those happy little trees. He’d sling his palette around, blend the titanium white paint, whisper about his life in Alaska, then gently tap his fan brush to create a canvas full of fluffy clouds. With his partly unbuttoned chambray shirt, his halo of tight curls and his soothing demeanor, Ross was a fixture on PBS.
Shocked. Absolutely shocked. I feel like Kirk Lazarus when he finds out Four Leaf has hands in Tropic Thunder. Like Fuck, Bob. You had great hair! Sure It’s a little bit Vanilla Ice-ish but that head of hair shouldn’t be ruined by some dumb ass notion that you’re saving money and furthermore be ruined and turned into some god damn q-tip puff ball fro we’re now use to. Complete shame. I mean back then in those hippy-ish eras chicks dug painters. Having a painter bro with a sweet head of hair must’ve slayed. And then on top of that you were in the Air Force? Such a baller combo that had to get ruined by quite possibly the dumbest hair style of all time. After the show was a success it should’ve been time for rebranding. Not just “The Joy Of Painting” presented by happy go lucky Bob Ross. Instead try “The Sex Of Painting” Presented by Master Sergeant of the U.S. Air Force, Bob Ross. Instant sex that would stand the test of time. Chicks these days would be cramming paint brushes inside them with suave hair like that.

GIVE IT TO ME NETFLIX! Stranger Things has become like a top 3 show for me. I just love it. The 80’s nostalgia, the adventure, and the friendships. I normally get freaked out by anything spooky related but I’ve honestly never had more fun watching a show ever. Like comedies get me laughing but I’ve never been taken for a ride quite like in Stranger Things. Breaking Bad was phenomenal television and I loved going down rabbit holes making guesses watching it conclude perfectly the way it should. But Stranger Things was just genuine fun. Eleven is the baddest bitch out there. Seriously. I think technically if we were to mash fictional worlds she could be on the level of the Phoenix Force in X-Men and probably would replace that bitch Scarlet Witch in the Avengers. That’s a Bad Bitch, and I hope to god they bring her back some how for season 2, I don’t believe she’s dead. Part of me thinks, she’s like relegated herself into the Upside Down so the Demogorgon will stop bothering Mike Wheeler and his friends. So selfless of her. Love the mysteriousness of the episode titles as well. Off the top of my head the one I’m looking forward to the most for some reason is The Pumpkin Patch. I don’t know why, but i kinda just like pumpkin patches. It’s old school, this is old school, the look of a typical pumpkin patch is kinda cool. I don’t know I just like it. It’s the third episode of the season and last season episode three was when Barb was in the Upside Down puking demogorgon cum about to get eaten while Nancy bangs Steve Harrington, which by the way I would like to see the turn out of his character after he abandons his asshole friends, They did the light thing to communicate with Will, etc. Everything popped off in Episode 3 the first season so I’m hoping its the same for this next season.
Maybe its the small tinge of being 100% Asian but for some reason I still like the occasional drift video. Sure it’s a dumb waste of tires and the fumes afterward give me a head ache but in the quick moment that car is sideways with a couple G force being thrown at the driver, I get a little excited. And yea this guy ended up going head first into a fucking garage door but what really made a few few drips of pee come out of this guy had to been nearly clipping the BMW. Thing got close enough to kill a spider hanging off of that side panel with out scratching the car. Im sure DK out there in Japan can drift it and park it with out smashing though a house causing thousands of dollar in damage but I dont know if he can get that close to another car somehow with out smashing into it.

Independent- The world’s oldest man has been named as Indonesian Mbah Gotho, who is 145 years old, with documentation that says he was born in 1870.
Mr Gotho said he began preparing for his death in 1992, even having a gravestone made, but 24 years later he is still alive.
He has now outlived all 10 of his siblings, his four wives and his children.
Though his age is impressive, Mr Gotho told a regional news network: “What I want is to die.”For the past three months he has needed to bathed and spoon-fed, and is becoming increasingly frail.
Mr Gotho has official documentation which shows his age, and the Indonesian records office says it has confirmed his birth date as December 31 1870.
If this is correct, this would earn him the title of the oldest person ever, a title currently held by French centenarian Jeanne Calment, who was 122 when she died – 23 years younger than Mr Gotho.
If the documents cannot be independently verified, however, Mr Gotho will not go down in the record books.There are a number of people who claim to have broken Jeanne Calment’s record, such as Nigerian James Olofintuyi, who claims to be 171, and Dhaqabo Ebba from Ethiopia, who claims to be 163, but without verifiable documents they cannot be given her title.
The centenarian, from Central Java, says he spends his time listening to the radio, as his eyesight is no longer good enough to watch television.
When asked the secret to a long life, he said: “The recipe is just patience”.
Part of me wants to say end this guy’s life already. Cover his face with a pillow, give him a pill, i dont know, just something so the man can rest in peace already. I mean for fucks sake he’s ONE HUNDRED and FOURTY- FIVE years old. World War 1 happened when he was 44 years old. He’s closer to the signing of the Declaration of Independence than he is to 2016. It’s absurd to let this guy keep living after the amount of World that he’s had to live. Outlasted his entire family before and after him. Can’t watch tv or do much of anything and probably has to be taken care of by historians who have to delicately handle rare fragile artifacts in order to clean him. I mean fuck, the guy planned on dying twenty four years ago! He wanted to die when I was two! But then there’s another part of me that almost can’t let that happen. I don’t want to live past like 80 personally. But I’m a normal human. I just need to see the limit. How far people can push them selves. It’s why we watch sports and athletes like Usain Bolt, because i want to see what the genetic extent of a human leg can do. And yes just living is boring but next year I want to be able to blog about this guy putting up another tally on life. Father time was undefeated until he met Mbah Gotho…

I’ve said it a billion times that I’m not a novelty guy. They don’t stand the test of time because other companies just do it better and it’s usually just a ploy to make more money. I need good old fashion power sometimes. I don’t want an electric motor just because it’s what’s hot in the streets right now. I want a good old fashioned V8 that burns non-replenishable fossil fuel. Why get an eggplant emoji vibrator that’ll probably break down after a few goes when I can get a tried and true Hitatchi wand or a nice veiny 10 inch dildo that would frighten away you’re casual promiscuous girl. But hey, that’s just me and my preference. If I were to put myself in the mind of a girl I guess I wouldn’t mind getting one. I mean first off it just looks like the Eggplant Emoji. Nothing really about it screams “Hey look at me! I’m a sex toy!” so that’s a nice plus in case you have nosy room mates. And I’m not gonna lie, from the
pornos I’ve seen research online those Hitachi wands look like a god damn production. I feel like they have to be plugged into those special high voltage wall sockets like for washing machines or dryers. No human should have that much electricity coursing through an object inside them. Especially when there’s a strong chance of it getting wet. These gotta be a bit of a blow to your common guy sexter though. Next time you fire off a “🍆💦?” text she can just say she’s got that handled and send you a pic of the eggplant emoji just to be clever and cute.
PANAMA CITY — An inmate now faces additional charges after he allegedly was caught smuggling narcotics into the Bay County Jail via methamphetamine-drizzled drawings of the sun, according to arrest records.
Two other people also have been arrested in connection with the scheme.
BayCounty inmate Robert Daniel Eanes, 27, on Monday was the latest to be charged with smuggling contraband into a detention facility. Officers discovered through jailhouse phone calls and recorded visitations that Eanes allegedly had been getting “ice” methamphetamine delivered to him on a series of drawings sent through the jail mail service, court records indicated.
Heather Kristine Buehler, 29, and Christopher Charles Inns, 35, also have been charged in the case as senders of the letters. Eanes faces an additional $20,000 bond for the charge but already was being held without bond after he failed a urinalysis during his release on narcotics-related charges.According to the Bay County Sheriff’s Office, Eanes devised a plan to have the two co-defendants send him narcotics through the mail system. He allegedly was receiving hand-drawn pictures of the sun, which had been saturated with a methamphetamine solution and then dried. Once the picture arrived in the mail, Eanes could eat the picture and experience the effects of the drug while incarcerated, BCSO reported.Eanes had been in jail since June, and officers got word of the mail scheme Aug. 10. Investigators reviewed videos of visitations between Eanes and Buehler, where Eanes would coach her on melting down a substance and putting it in the center of the sun on a hand-drawn picture, officers reported.
In one recorded phone call from Eanes, Inns said Buehler left a batch of letters at his house and that he had put them in his mailbox destined for the jail. BCSO reported that by doing so, Inns facilitated the contraband being delivered to Eanes.
Officers intercepted one of the packages, which contained three letters addressed to Eanes. Two of the envelopes contained greeting cards and photographs. The third had two notes that appeared to have been written by Eanes’ children and a hand-colored picture of the sun, which directly matched the instructions from the recorded conversations.
A sample taken from the center of the drawn sun tested positive for methamphetamine, BCSO reported.
Eanes already had been facing methamphetamine-related charges. He posted bond after an April traffic stop and discovery of meth, only to be arrested the next day during another traffic stop led to the discovery of meth, court records stated.
The arrests also violated probation for Eanes’ two co-defendants. Days before his arrest, Inns had pleaded no contest to drug-related charges and sentenced to three years of drug offender probation. Buehler was sentenced to three years of probation in 2014 for felony retail theft for stealing about $81 worth of merchandise from Wal-Mart.
You know how they say don’t judge a book by It’s cover? Well shame on me. Here I was willy nilly thinking that these criminals were all just the biggest group of idiots with this guy getting tossed in jail originally for stealing shit from a Wal-Mart. Sure enough seems dumb. But then on the other hand of the same spectrum we have the same guy that knows the chemical process to melt down methamphetamine onto paper and was smart enough to devise a plan to get high in prison. It’s so simple and so genius. Just splatter that shit on some construction paper and say a kid sent him a drawing or some shit that you’re gonna hang up in your cell. C.O. probably wouldn’t even know when he walks across this guy’s cell with the drawings half chewed and the guy on the ground rolling face high as a kite. Probably not the cleanest of highs with a low purity rate and shits been stepped on with food coloring to match the same glow that the happy yellow color the sun produces probably, but for prison standards guy pretty much is getting down on Blue Sky pretty much. When’s the last time I ever came up with a scheme that brilliant? Never in a million years would I know how to make some super chemical drug and paint them Bob Ross style so people in the penitentiary system can get high. They might not be the best people when it comes to responsibilities and may not have the real life acumen to make the best life choices but I’ll never doubt a low life criminals imaginative brain when it comes to finding a way to abuse some sort of recreational drug.
LAKE CITY, Fla. – Lake City Police said a Krystal employee turned violent on Tuesday after learning he would be written up for showing up to work late.
Police said 29-year-old Russell Francis Gomez threw frozen hamburger patties at his boss, then started knocking over equipment and poured cooking oil on the floor when the manager tried to go to the office.Employees got customers out of the store safely while Gomez “flipped the circuit breakers, overturned trash cans, and damaged electronic equipment,” according to a release from the Lake City Police Department.Gomez got into his car and tried to leave, but two customers blocked him from leaving, because he was “saying he was going to return and making threats toward the manager,” the release detailed.
Gomez confronted one of the customers and spat in their face. The two customers “grabbed and restrained Gomez” until police arrived, according to the release.
When police arrived, Gomez was bleeding from the mouth. Gomez was told to sit while police obtained statements from witnesses. He then tried to leave on foot, but was able to be apprehended by officers safely.
Gomez was booked into the Columbia County Jail and faces three counts of aggravated battery, as well as assault, criminal mischief and resisting an officer without violence. He also faces a charge of driving while license suspended/revoked, as deputies found that he is a habitual traffic offender.
Typical fast food worker going about the daily grind just trying to make a paycheck and live so he can make a paycheck next week and live. Probably had a little hiccup, life got in the way, sometimes people fuck up. Who knows his reason. To err is to be human after all. Now I don’t know about Russell’s work ethic here. Maybe he fucked up too many times for his boss to forgive. What I do know is out of any burger chain, if you decide to throw an angry fit at your boss by ransacking the place and threaten your manager, Krystal Burger might be the worst option. I love little White Castle/ Krystal Burger’s sliders but that’s not gonna do any sort of damage with those thin little tiny frozen patties. You’re just not getting the appropriate fulfillment considering you’re gonna lose your job and go to jail anyways. If you worked at a McDonalds, you can just go ham on the ice cream machine. Wendy’s, take those fresh never frozen patties out of the freezer and chuck those meaty patties around. Bk? Throw those massive sesame seed buns in one hand, the massive patties in another. You throw a fit with little Krystal sliders you’re just gonna make a tiny mess. Probably clean it up in 15 minutes. If you want to tell your boss off, you’re gonna need a place that offers more.
AutoBlog– The feud between Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Vin Diesel not only rages on, but is getting even more heated as filming for the upcoming Fast 8 film comes to a close. Previous reports claim that Johnson, who called his fellow male actors “candy asses”, and Diesel were arguing over decisions the latter made that didn’t sit well with ‘The Rock.’ Earlier this month, anonymous sources claimed the two had met to squash their beef, putting an end to their quarreling. The latest tidbit of news, though, muddles the waters even more – the actors were likely never really fighting.
According to Life & Style Magazine, the feud between Johnson, who plays Luke Hobbs, and Diesel, who will reprise his role as Dominic Toretto, was a hoax. An anonymous source told the outlet that the feud between the two was a stunt to get people aroused for a WWE wrestling match and to promote the Fast 8 film. The source claims the stunt was Johnson’s idea. After all, the star first got his start in wrestling.
While the report sounds like it’s coming out of left field – partly because it is – it sort of makes sense. Johnson’s movie career involves numerous films with other actors that were probably difficult to work with and the actor has never voiced any negative words towards another actor. At least not in the way he did towards Diesel.
On the other hand, if the fake feud is being used to garner attention, the actors aren’t taking it far enough. Wouldn’t there be more rants aimed at one another? Something doesn’t add up and, if you ask us, we think the hatred between the two is real. The anonymous source may be trying to cover up the real conflict between the actors.
Either way, a wrestling match between ‘The Rock’ and Diesel would be huge for both the film and WWE. Only time will tell if Johnson and Diesel really settle their anger in the ring, but if they do, our money’s on ‘The Rock.’
Genius. Fucking brilliant. Ask me a week ago if I thought this was a PR stunt perpetrated by the Hollywood studios and I would’ve told you by next week I wouldn’t care one bit. But things have changed. I remembered that Vince McMahon is still alive. Not that I ever thought he wasn’t alive but I forgot how much of a manipulator he is. How the man blurs the line between real life and Monday Night RAW. Can never tell if he’s Vince McMahon the Wrestler/ The Owner/ The Founder of the Kiss My Ass Club/ or just the real Vince McMahon that strolls through town. The reason being is because they’re all the same. Guy is really a villain in real life. That’s why It wouldn’t be completely out of bounds to say that this is all his doing. Frankly if I get into an argument with my friend I wouldn’t discount the idea that it was a ploy by Vince. If he has that much of a hold on my brain, a guy who hasn’t watched wrestling since the days of RVD, how much control do you think he has over The Rock who grew up in the greatest era of wrestling. Yea The Rock has appearances here and there on Wrestlemania. The guy generates a buzz like no other.
Listen, I don’t know what the plot is to Fast 8. What I do know from extensively analyzing all 8 films repeatedly is that the relationship between Hobbs and Toretto was born from a rocky start aiming to beat the shit out of one another. One is against the law and one is the law. Sure they’ve put aside differences in order to protect people from terrorist and other harmful criminals, but Just like Iron Man and Captain America, I could picture those two going at each others throat. If you were to tell me that they finished Captain America Civil War with RDJ storming off set mad at Chris Evans, I would scratch my head about it since they’ve had chemistry working with each other on the previous other marvel movies. Then if you told me Wrestlemania’s headline event was going to be Steve Rodgers verses Iron Man I would fly to what ever city to see it go down. It’s taking movies to a live action level. Not to mention The Rock calling someone out over instagram for being unprofessional is a bit unprofessional itself. Never could picture The Rock just beefing with someone in real life anyways. That is of course, if it’s one big ploy perpetrated by Vince McMahon……
CORMORANT, Minn. —Nine-year-old Duke, a Great Pyrenees, handily won another one-year term as mayor of the small northwestern Minnesota town of Cormorant, Detroit Lakes Online reports.”I don’t know who would run against him because he’s done such great things for the community,” Cormorant resident Karen Nelson told Detroit Lakes Online.
The locals say Duke has one of the highest approval ratings in the country.
“Everybody voted for Duke, except for one vote for his girlfriend, Lassie,” Duke’s owner David Rick said.
Detroit Lakes Online reports the dog was unavailable for an interview, but his media people said he’s more than ready for a third term.
Duke was elected in 2014, when he defeated Richard Sherbrook, the owner of a local store, ABC News reported in 2014.
Hey Longville, you guy’s just let Duke and all of Cormorant’s citizens drag their nuts all over your face. Do the right thing and make Bruno mayor already.
Metro– Fallen Olympic star Ryan Lochte may have been cast adrift by sponsors like Speedo and Ralph Lauren, but he has been thrown a lifeline by a sex toy company.
The 32-year-old gold medal winning star has been at the centre of a storm since over exaggerating being ‘held at gunpoint’ and forced to hand over his wallet while out partying in notorious crime capital Rio de Janeiro in Brazil during the 2016 Games.
In the fallout he has seen his lucrative contract with Speedo cut, and his deals with Ralph Lauren, Airweave and Gentle Hair Removal come to an abrupt end.But the makers of the ‘crowdfunded blowjob robot everyone is talking about’ – the Autoblow2+ – have made him a tempting offer to become the face of their products.
‘It takes years of dedication and practice to win one Olympic Medal let alone 12, so I see in him a man with qualities our brand stands for,’ brand inventor Brian Sloan says.
‘I forgive him for his mistake and want to put him in front of an audience of men who admire him as the champion he is to help us promote the champion of masturbation devices: the Autoblow 2,’ he continues.‘The Autoblow 2’s tireless motor exemplifies the Olympic spirit much as Lochte did while winning his medals,’ he added.
As part of the deal, Autoblow will pay Ry $10,000 USD (£7,500 GBP) to pose with one of the robotic devices while smiling and pointing at it along with the caption ‘the masturbation device Olympic champions chose’.
Easy work if you can get it.
Steal of the century right? Easy 10k for a picture of cock stroker robot. Gotta take it. Look, It’s hard to be the face of something that’s on the fore front of technology because everyone’s to scared to be the face of an unproven brand. I’m sure Lochte would love to be sponsored by Sony or something but the fact of the matter is those opportunities are gone and he’s not getting younger. Are there chances that he’s gonna make it back to the Olympics? Probably not. Your career is essentially down the tubes as far as swimming goes. So maybe it’s time to make a business change and go in a different direction. And for someone that doesn’t have a known sex tape out yet, Ryan Lochte is the perfect person to have promote your deviant sex toy products. It’s a strong enough of a name so that it’s recognized nationally and the guy is still a gold medal winner and in good shape. The only problem is 10 grand for a photo seems kinda low for a decent promotion opportunity. Must be what the managerial team and agents of Lochte are waiting to pull the trigger on. 10k with an Olympian is horse shit. Try a million. Rapid cut shots of the Autoblow 2 in motion and Ryan Lochte swimming competing the hair color right out of his head. Fade to black and just the Autoblow 2. All you hear in the background. “…ooooooohhhhhhh Jeeeaaahhhhhhhh.” You don’t need to be Don Draper to come up with advertising thats that easy.
