Speaking of horror, What Culture has the 12 Most Over-Used Horror Cliches. (What Culture)
Also horrific are these Top Ten Dumbest Halloween Costumes MelBivDevoe amassed over at Hot Ink. Sexy Hulk Hogan, y’all. (Hot Ink Reviews)
On the flip side, here is the coolest Halloween costume I’ve seen all year. If you don’t get it, then you’ve never spent a Christmas with my sister in control of the remote. (Blame It On The Voices)
And for my tender time wasters out there, here’s a mindless but addictive little game that might maybe make a better

Last week I posted a list of adorable Hollywood couples. If the Obamas counted as Hollywood, they would have been on it. Here are 19 adorably presidential moments including the one below from Inauguration Night. (Buzzfeed)

Also posing this month is Johnny Depp who is back on the cover of “Vanity Fair” for the second time this year. Excessive. Also, Depp likens photo shoots to being raped. Well, yes, Johnny Boy, that’s because you let that scumbag Terry Richardson shoot you. (Celebitchy)

But, correct me if I’m wrong (as I often am), if they mess with the NYSE in a significant way, won’t that have wide-spread repercussions?

Speaking of cyber culture, I was blown away by this piece in The Guardian about how computer usage has changed our definition of the word “home.” (The Guardian)
I dunno, folks, home is wherever I’m with you, right? Sometimes, however, “The Daily Show” makes me a little embarrassed to call the U.S. “home.” Inspired by Gov. Rick Perry’s “Niggerhead Ranch” scandal, Wyatt Cenac takes a look at the racist place names across the nation.
Finally, here’s a quirky video from Dresden Doll and Mrs. Neil Gaiman, Amanda Palmer. This song is a fun little ditty and the concept is clever. Enjoy.
