Via Bored Panda:

My name is Norihito Hatanaka and I create a fake food accessories. Normally, my factory creates ‘industrial art food models’ for display at restaurants. One day, I thought I wanted to create something interesting by using our expert technology of the craftsman.

I considered what should I create to expose the fake food to public view. And as I was interested in fashion, I decided to make accessories that have a food motif. I get inspired for my work from casual daily scenery. Easily available common food items are charming as they are, though people sometimes don’t notice that.

A very annoyed cat (with a human body) presides over a table of ill-mannered dogs (with human bodies) for a holiday meal. The dogs proceed to drink too much, argue, and steal food from each other’s plates – as dogs do. Funnier than it sounds, trust me.

Many of the animals at the dinner table are available for adoption through the Utah Humane Society and while they appear to be impolite in the video, they are good, well-behaved dogs who are just really good actors. (via Laughing Squid)

Everything singer-songwriter Adam Young does sounds like an ’80s sit-com theme song, including this. But it’s better than Ariana’s horrible attempt to snatch Mariah’s Christmas crown, so for that reason I’m pushing this as the CHRISTMAS SONG OF 2014! Check it out after the jump.

The Interview Sony Pictures Seth Rogen President Obama North Korea Kim Jong un James Franco Hollywood hacking scandal Department of Homeland Security

The chain of events brought on by green-lighting the movie, The Interview in which the US dispatched two actors (James Franco and Seth Rogen) to assassinate North Korean leader, Kim Jon-Un, have been, to say the least unexpectedly fierce. It has been three weeks since a group of hackers started releasing a huge cache of data, films, and email stolen from Sony Pictures and it just keeps getting worse. The group has now threatened theaters that show the film, due to go into wide release on Christmas Day.

Warning
We will clearly show it to you at the very time and places “The Interview” be shown, including the premiere, how bitter fate those who seek fun in terror should be doomed to.
Soon all the world will see what an awful movie Sony Pictures Entertainment has made.
The world will be full of fear.
Remember the 11th of September 2001.
We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time.
(If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.)
Whatever comes in the coming days is called by the greed of Sony Pictures Entertainment.
All the world will denounce the SONY.

Yikes! But the North Korean government is not taking credit for the threats or hacking. In a video, a spokesperson says that they could care less what Sony does, but that the hack was “a righteous act” and “just punishment for its evil doings.” After reviewing the statement, the Department of Homeland Security issued this;

“We are still analyzing the credibility of these statements, but at this time there is no credible intelligence to indicate an active plot against movie theaters within the United States.”

Well anyway, yesterday Sony cancelled the New York premiere of the film and it’s been speculated that it may be pulled altogether. If that happens (and even if it doesn’t) the corporate hack seems likely to be among the most expensive ever – along with the recent Target breach (cost; $110 million) and Sony’s other disasters, 2011 Playstation hack (about $170 million). Some estimates of the corporate damage have been put at $150 to $300 million, meaning this hack might wipe out half of the Sony pictures’s 2013 profits.

Amy Pascal, the head of Sony Pictures who greenlit The Interview is still at the center of this issue after the insensitive comments about half of the town and (also President Obama) were dumped and have had everyone’s mouths hanging open since. Several top executives now question her future at the company. It looks like Pascal should start looking for new work on another planet other than Hollywood, especially if the hackers deliver on their Christmas promise. For a full list of all of the repercussions of this film fiasco, go here. (via New York Magazine & THR)

Winona Ryder Michael Keaton film sequel Catherine OHara big eyes Beetlejuice

I’ve got Tim Burton on the brain after just seeing the new trailer for Big Eyes, which comes out Christmas Day. After months of speculation, Burton has confirmed that a Beetlejuice sequel is happening! The 1988 film starring Michael Keaton as the title ghost and Winona Ryder as a death-obsessed teen, is a cult classic. But as of October of this year, Burton didn’t have a script, though Keaton had said he was on board –nice after his recent comeback success in Birdman. Ryder is apparently also confirmed. But what about Catherine O’Hara?

Tom Luchsinger out athlete Olympic hopeful Gay coming put

An accomplished athlete, Tom Luchsinger had an impressive calling card even though he was barely past 20 years old. 12 ACC Medals, 10 All-American Certificates, three All-American Trophies, and ACC Men’s Swimmer of the Year. But that internal monologue in his head continued;

“You are still a queen. You are still a fairy!”

When he won the 200m butterfly national title in 2013, something changed in him. He’d graduated to “Olympic hopeful” status, and with that came added attention and responsibility. Fans and the media paid closer attention to him, and he was terrified his secret would come out. Still, he wondered;

“Why would anyone want to take a picture of me? Why would anyone want to film me? I’m nothing but an unaccomplished, closeted queer. For my own personal health, I needed to come out. I needed to accept myself and stop hating myself.”

So in August 2014, he finally started to reach out. He first talked with another gay swimmer who’d come out, then he told his brother, the first in his family to meet the real Tom.

“Twenty minutes after I told him, we were making jokes about it. Nothing changed.”

He finally mustered up the strength to tell his parents, and after he broke the news, they asked him, “Are you the same man we raised for the past 23 years?” Yes,” he said, feeling like he’d let them down. “Then, who cares?” they said.

“My friendships have gotten stronger because of my self acceptance. My smile is a lot more genuine and surfaces much more frequently. I laugh a lot more. My body has time to recover from a workout because I’m actually an easy-going person. I have found qualities-both physical and emotional-that I like about myself – though that’s still a work in progress. My number of good days far out number my bad days.”

Congrats, Tom. (via Queerty)
