Video: TV News Reports On Emo Culture

Saw this all in news reports on Goth culture in the 90s. I’m sure they had ones for Punks, Hippies, and Beatniks too. Reactionary warning about a “teen phenomenon.” Checklist of what to look for to make sure your kids aren’t emo. Ultra-square news anchors with helmet-hair & crisp suits making disapproving faces. And panicked parents interrogating their children afterwards: “are you emo?! don’t you know that emo can kill?!”

Barbie Doll Parts Jewelry

Looking like a cross between pop art and a doll-parts massacre, these unique earrings and pendants from Margaux Lange certainly will make a statement. They’re carefully cobbled together from actual Barbie dolls and sterling silver and are available for sale on Etsy.

The Brooklyn resident writes in her profile:

“Barbieā„¢ was immensely important in fueling my creative life as a child, and ironically continues to be such for me as an adult. My “Plastic Body Series” jewelry stems from a desire to re-purpose common materials in combination with metals. I am inspired, terrified and fascinated, first and foremost by humans. I’m drawn to patterns and repetition in all forms.”

The Worst Comic Strip Ever Made

Cartoon Brew offers the following as one of the worst comic strips ever made: “Uncle Funny Bunny And Chumpy.”

Featuring the adventures of a young chimp sharing a house with who we can only assume is his uncle, the strip has the comedy cadence of a dull thud — making you feel at the end that perhaps, much like the movie “Hancoc,” there were heavy edits and that the original work was really a piece of genius.

Is “Uncle Funny Bunny And Chumpy” indeed the worst comic strip ever made? Judge for yourself!
