Weekend Hangover: 16 Stories You May Have Missed, From Female Ghostbusters to Sharknado Perfume


Rounding up some stories you may have missed over the weekend, some of which were noticed by me and others of which were submitted by you, the readers, on the weekend thread. Compiled as always with the help of Kyle LeClair.

This week’s tipsters include: SlyDante777, Gallen_Dugall, James.k.Polk, donnaryoko, franciebrady27, latigid, Edwin Santos, Dr.Gonzo82

1. Smells Fishy.

Tara Reid has her own new “Shark” perfume inspired by Sharknado. It presumably smells like a whale and a shark doin’ the nasty.

2. Putting the “Bust” Back in Ghostbusters.

Current speculation surrounding Ghostbusters 3 is that Paul Feig wants to direct with an all-female cast. Some fanboys are outraged; I’m just outraged Annie “Janine Melnitz” Potts, who was key to the ensemble in the first two films, isn’t part of the conversation. #TeamJanine.

3. Hayao’s Retiring Castle.


Studio Ghibli may or may not be closing down permanently, and let be the first to say…does it matter? Did you honestly care about the non-Miyazaki movies before, and now that he’s retiring, do you suddenly like them better? Be honest.

4. Choice Cuts.

You’ve been chosen by Bioware’s new game…but for what?

5. Happy Birthday – Spray It, Don’t Say It.

Cake in a spray can, for those who find mixing powder and water to be too difficult.

6. One Grinch but the Eggplant Over There.

Lost Dr. Seuss stories! I marvel! I wow! I cream in my jeans and go Jerk Biff Kapow!

7. Scream and Scream Again.


I loved Scream comics in the UK, and was bummed when they got canceled. Happy to see them all scanned and online now.

8. Xeno: Warrior Misprint-cess?

Is it a big mistake to refer to the H.R. Giger aliens as xenomorphs? Logically, nit-pickingly…yes.

9. Kim Possible.

On this day in 1996, World Championship Wrestling held a little-known pay-per-view event…in North Korea.

10. House of 1,000 Revolutions.

“Rob Zombie’s French Revolution” is a cartoon more accurate and true-to-life than most of his movies.

11. Michael Bay Wishes He’d Thought of This.

Every Ninja Turtle weapon in one, for real.

12. More Mickey Than Meets the Eye.


Transparent mice. Sounds creepy, but so far it’s only doable after they’re dead. So good luck finding the bodies.

13. Fingerlings.

A robotic hand enhancement can give you two extra fingers…but you probably still won’t please your lover.

14. Like You Needed to Be Told.

Hey, back in the ’90s we were dumb at this. And needed to be informed what “one-handed typing” was.

15. Grave Irreverence.

Panteon de Dolores / Santolo / Llamarada from Ciudad Intervenida on Vimeo.

Cemeteries are so damn depressing. Leave it to Mexico to liven them up with some 3-D projection-mapping animation.

16. Weekend Hangover, Meet Cartoon Hangover.

Check out “Manly,” the new short from Adventure Time‘s Jesse Moynihan.
