<![CDATA[14 Ridiculously Funny GIFs From The World Of Wrestling]]> 14 Ridiculously Funny GIFs From The World Of Wrestling

Ahhhh wrestling.

Whether you were a fan back in the 80's and 90's when 'Hulkamaina was runnin' wild brutha!' or if you tuned in start the start of the millennium, it's fair to say you were witness to some of the most amusing pantomime and comedy sketches in living memory.

The ratings wars between WWF (which became WWE), WCW and ECW played out night after night as headline matches jostled for the biggest audiences. In short, at it's peak - the sport was almost universally loved.

If we talked about all the characters (many of them now sadly deceased) like Andre The Giant, Macho Man Randy Savage, British Bulldog, The Big Boss Man, Legion Of Doom and Ultimate Warrior through to stalwarts and big hitters like The Undertaker, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock and more recently John Cena - we would be here all day.

Now that UFC is the fighting sport of choice, viewership and the swell of public support for wrestling has dwindled somewhat, what hasn't changed is just how downright fun it all is.

Here's 14 ridiculously amusing GIFs featuring some of the most memorable moments in the sport.





























Which memorable momoment did you love the most?

<![CDATA[The Worst Wedding Ever Comes Complete With Raining Fire!]]> The Worst Wedding Ever Comes Complete With Raining Fire!

Weddings are supposed to be a celebration of love and happiness, an acknowledgement of a life-long commitment to your partner and full of friends, family and laughter, good food and lots of alcohol obviously.

Now that was certainly the case in this particular wedding, but not all ceremonies go as plan, in fact some are like walking into a war zone.

Like this one.

We don't want to ruin the fun, but rest assured it's a total car-crash of a wedding. There's explosives, fireworks, boom sticks, a seeming deaf flute player and at one point it even starts raining fire.

The happiest day of their lives? Probably not. The most memorable? Without question.

If you don’t have a strong stomach, then you might want to pass on this short film. If you like the idea of a romantic film that tells the story of a man who takes his skin off for his girlfriend, then this is right up your alley! It’s probably not the best idea for anyone to take his or her skin off, but that's just how the guy in this story rolls. This short is kind of hard to watch because it’s pretty disgusting, but it’s a great and really well-made film. One of the things that makes it stand out is the fact that there were no CGI effects used to make it.

The movie was directed by Ben Aston, and here’s some information that came along with it:

He Took His Skin Off For Me is a practical SFX fairytale. No CGI whatsoever. Based on the short story by Maria Hummer it is my grad film from the London Film School. It took us 2 years, 217 Kickstarter backers and a whole lot of fake blood to pull off. SFX legend Colin Arthur (NeverEnding Story, 2001: A Space Odyssey) helped us achieve the impossible, allowing SFX Supervisor Jen Cardno and her team set a new standard for anatomical practical effects. Actor Sebastian Armesto (Anonymous, Pirates of the Caribbean) spent as long as 8hrs in makeup each day to bring this story to life. Alongside Anna Maguire (Saving Private Ryan, Parade's End) they both give us something wonderful, horrible and completely unique. I don’t want to tell people what the film should be. Even finding a genre to describe it is difficult. I want people to come to this film just like I came to the original story, completely unprepared.
If I can leave with one pearl of wisdom, though; if you take off your skin just to be with somebody? That’s only ever going to end messy…

What they achieved is a pretty incredible and unique, and it’s a very interesting and enjoyable viewing experience, so check it out! Thanks to the director for sending this over to us!

I was zombied-out after Dawn of the Dead and Night of the Living Dead, the seminal horror movies by filmmaker George A. Romero, but apparently you kids keep loving those dumb walking corpses. You will like this fantastically crafted 3D animation short, which feels like the beginning of a full feature.

<![CDATA[Philadelphia’s Four Best Tacos]]>

On tonight’s Taco Trip at 9:30pm ET, Chef Aarón Sánchez heads to the city of taco love as part of his mission to find the country’s best taco originators. Here are the bites that blew his mind:

The Cheesesteak Taco at Union Taco (pictured above)

Visiting Philly without hitting a cheesesteak would be like going to the moon and not glide-walking backwards. Union Taco takes the holy grail of Philadelphia sandwiches as inspiration for this short rib-packed, plantain ketchup-drizzled wonder. The Scrapple Taco at Sancho Pistola’s

The Pennsylvania Dutch have a tradition of packing leftover pork bits into a terrine and frying it up. This staple called scrapple is being used to make another Philly-meets-Mexico winner at Sancho Pistola’s.

The Duck Taco at Tuk Tuk

There’s more cultural fusion to be found at Tuk Tuk Real, but this time in the form of a Thai-Mexican duck taco where housemade kimchi tops deeply-aromatic duck meat.

The Cauliflower Taco at La Calaca Feliz

For a city filled with as many carnivores as Philly, it’s surprising a cauliflower-based taco is so popular. La Calaca Feliz lightly fries it and tops it with three different flavored salsas, including a housemade guacamole and cactus salsa, to enhance the flavors. The result almost tastes like cauliflower carnitas.

Meet the masterminds behind these creations tonight at 9:30pm on Taco Trip.

You’ve got to check out this extremely funny animated short film about a guy on his way to a date when he finds out he has extremely bad breath. The story follows him trying to extinguish the deadly smell coming from his mouth. The film is wonderfully entertaining, and apparently it screened in front of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy in all Dutch Pathé cinemas. Here’s a brief story summary:

Haring tells the tale of Diederik, a guy who makes the mistake of eating a herring right before a date. When he finds out his fishy breath destroys everything in its path, he does his best to get rid of the smell, while also trying to reach his date in time.

The short was  written, directed, and produced by Davor Bujakovic and Junaid Chundrigar for KLOMP! Animation. I know you’re all going to enjoy this one.

<![CDATA[One truly terrifying love story]]> One truly terrifying love story

I don't know what the hell I was expecting from a short titled He Took His Skin Off For Me, but I sure wasn't expecting this. A love story that is a horror nightmare that is a metaphor of certain relationships. Or vice versa. All with with excellent 100-percent practical special effects. It is hard to watch, but you should. It's worth it.

<![CDATA[Rousing Superman Animatic — "A Smallville Man" by Mauricio Abril]]>

A year ago, we posted the stunning "A Gotham Fairytale" by Mauricio Abril. A year later, Abril has created "A Smallville Man," which is a story told with over 150 black and white illustrations, and features the song "Walk" by the Foo Fighters. The story shows Superman in South America and as a boy in Smallville. The parallel storylines play out with a sentimental ending. Abril said that after doing the first animatic, he never planned to do a second. But after tens of thousands of views and demands for another, Abril was inspired to make another short. Chekc it out.

<![CDATA[This Music Video Makes Me Want to Take Karate Classes]]>

When I was a kid, my mom wouldn't let me take karate classes—too violent. I ended up in tap and ballet instead. While I enjoyed my decade of dancing, I still feel a pang of remorse every time I walk by the dojo down the block from my apartment. But now, the new video for POP ETC's appropriately 80's song "Running in Circles" might just convince me to signup.

<![CDATA[Akira Kurosawa's 100 favorite movies]]> After he died, a book containing legendary movie director Akira Kurosawa's 100 favorite films was published. The list was made by his daughter, arranged chronologically, and limited to one film per director. His daughter describes the selection process:

The principle of the choice is: one film for one director, entry of the unforgettable films about which I and my father had a lovely talk, and of some ideas on cinema that he had cherished but did not express in public.

Some of Kurosawa's choices: My Neighbor Totoro for Miyazaki, The King of Comedy for Scorsese (?), Annie Hall for Woody Allen, Fitzcarraldo for Herzog, Barry Lyndon for Kubrick (??), and The Birds for Hitchcock. No Orson Welles, Coens, David Lynch, or Malick.

<![CDATA[Homeless Astronaut Shoots for the Moon in Short Film]]>

Shoot for the Moon is a charming short film that centers on a homeless astronaut who sets out for the moon “armed with nothing more than a travel case, some bottle rockets and a trolley-load of ambition.” The film comes from YouTuber Shut Up Infinity, and it also serves as a way to inspire people to support the explorers, innovators, and dreamers so that they can pressing forward and making the impossible possible. As the short says, “We might find the stars closer than we think."

<![CDATA[This Is What "Man Caves" Looked Like Back In The 60's & 70's]]> This Is What "Man Caves" Looked Like Back In The 60's & 70's

We've all heard the phrase "man cave" right? It's used to associate a room synonymous with all kinds of manly activity such as watching sport, kicking back with a fine cigar, pouring yourself a class of fine scotch and talking business.

Admittedly back in the 1960s and 1970s there wasn’t the constant distraction of mobile phones, text messages, technology and email - people were able to dedicate more time and resources into taking care of their home.

Rather than group chats over the web, the ‘man cave’ was a place where ideas were shared, conversation flowed and more than few lusty encounters occurred.

Here’s a few photographs that are the epitome of vintage cool, spanning numerous bachelor pads from the mid 1960s to the late 1970s.

It's enough to make you want to put on the latest vinyl record, pour yourself a glass of the finest Scotch, sit back and relax isn't it?

<![CDATA[A Fascinating Look Inside 400 Suitcases Found In The Attic Of Mental Asylum]]> A Fascinating Look Inside 400 Suitcases Found In The Attic Of Mental Asylum

The infamous Willard Psychiatric Centre in upstate New York was originally built in 1869 to care, medicate and manage the mentally ill and those suffering from psychiatric trauma. Remarkably its doors stayed open for 126 years, finally closing once and for all back in 1995.

It was then that an impressive and fascinating discovery was found up in the attic of the centre itself - some 400 dusty suitcases each belonging to the centre’s residents between 1910 and 1960.

These suitcases contained all of their treasured belongings, the last remnants of their former life on the outside, before becoming committed to life on the inside.

Few patients were ever released back into society, meaning their suitcases filled with memories where left to simply gather dust in the attic, forgotten and abandoned by the passage of time.

Intrigued by the stories and contents contained within photographer Jon Crispin was given exclusive access to document the rare and intriguing find. The suitcases are now part of a permanent collection at the New York State Museum.

You can find out more about the 'Willard Suitcases' photographic series on Jon Crispin’s official site along with images from the entire collection itself.

It's also worth unearthing the history of the asylum itself and the tragic tales of the individuals who called it home, in the book The Lives They Left Behind: Suitcases from a State Hospital Attic

<![CDATA[Beautifully Dark Animated Short DEATH AND THE ROBOT]]>

I have an incredibly delightful stop-motion animated short film for you to watch today called Death and the Robot. The animation and character design work that was used to tell this story is superb. This is a dark yet beautiful tale with a hint of light humor. Here's a brief summary:

Bored of their stagnant existence, two lonely souls leave their safe havens behind and discover one another, yielding an everlasting legacy that will forever change their dying world.

The short was directed, animated and conceived by Austin Taylor, from a script written by co-producer Alexander Thompson. The film is about a year old, but I’ve never seen it until I came across it on Firstshowing. I’m glad that I did, because I thoroughly enjoyed it. I hope you do, too.
