It Looks Like A Normal Hill On The Countryside, But Look Around And You’ll See The Truth

If you’re a fan of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, you’ll be interested to know that some of the things from the books are actually real. Okay…sorcery and elven magic sadly still don’t exist, but one aspect of the books really is coming to life.

Green Magic Homes is a company that’s looking to make homes reminiscent of the Hobbit holes that are in the books and movies. They’re built into the sides of rolling hills, and they’re absolutely amazing.

If you fantasize about living in the Shire, now you can.

They’re beautiful and offer magnificent views of the countryside. They’re also eco-friendly, which is always a plus.

Not only are they gorgeous on the outside, but they’re awesomely cozy on the inside.

Check out how amazing this living room is!

Their designs range from simplistic and small…

…to a bit larger and more sophisticated.

And some are incredibly elaborate.

If you want one of these homes, you can head over to their website for a pricing guide, and also to have a look at some of the designs they have to offer. Looks to me like this would be an awesome investment!

IRA supporter Rose McGowan calls Marco Rubio a ‘Dbag’ for voting against VAWA

http://twitter.com/#!/rosemcgowan/status/301503180049637376

Yes, Sen. Marco Rubio voted against VAWA . See his reasons here.

But is an actress who once spoke out in favor of the Irish Republican Army really the right person to scold others about violence prevention?

By the way, did McGowan ever apologize for her pro-IRA remarks? Just wondering.

Kevin Sorbo goes after Hollywood hypocrites, skewers Matt Damon

http://twitter.com/#!/ksorbs/status/410791404512632833

Count “Hercules” and “Andromeda” actor Kevin Sorbo among the conservative celebs willing to call out the hypocrisy of liberal Hollywood. His full message via Facebook:

Hollywood doesn’t like the truth. They can’t handle the truth. “Live as I say, not as I live”. This is their mantra.

A timely message as Obamacare-lovin’ celebs take to social media to push the #GetCovered campaign. How many plan to practice what they preach?

Sorbo recently talked to John Stossel about the entertainment industry:

Sorbo also ripped into Matt Damon.

http://twitter.com/#!/ksorbs/status/410816403424284672

Last December, Damon told Tavis Smiley, “I need to pay more taxes.” Sorbo shared the video and responded on Facebook:

OMG! Matt should just pay more taxes then. He talks here and says nothing. Amazing the hypocrisy in Hollywood. Comparing people who pay the vast majority of the taxes in America, and to complain about paying more taxes, to living in the Congo? Haiti?? Is he nuts??!!! Such a ridiculous interview. By the way, do you think Matt Damon flies coach? I have to fly coach most of the time. Wish I could fly private like he does, but I can’t afford it. Do you think he drives a beat up car? Live in a run down apartment? I don’t begrudge him his success. He is a great actor and I go to his movies. He has earned his success, but he needs to stop feeling guilty about his success. America is still the greatest country on this planet. But, we are putting an end to that quickly.

Read the whole thing on Sorbo’s Facebook page.

*NSYNC’s Twitter ‘mic check’ is further hint at VMAs reunion

http://twitter.com/#!/NSYNC/status/371359198300622848

The worst-kept secret in entertainment was further unveiled today when “the one and only official Twitter page for *NSYNC” issued its first tweet in advance of an expected reunion at Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards.

Joey Fatone’s father essentially confirmed the rumor yesterday by telling Radar Online, “They’re doing a performance.” OK, then. We’ll do our best to look surprised.

Science And Art Blend Together Perfectly With These Blinged Out Bugs. Cool, But Gross.

Alright folks, it’s time for a quick biology lesson: caddisflies are a common water-dwelling insect with similarities to the moth and butterfly. Likewise, the caddisfly will create cocoons while in their larvae stage in order to protect their soft, growing bodies. They typically use whatever is lying around them in the water to build their shelter with, using their saliva as the glue. Yay. Most of us would hear this information, shrug, and go about our day. But for artist Hubert Duprat, he found inspiration.

This is what a normal caddisfly cocoon looks like. Not particularly stellar.

Duprat gave the future flies a makeover by providing them with some blingier building supplies.

The result is this stunning blend of biology and artwork.

The larvae use their saliva to connect the gold, pearl and other gems to create their nest just as they would with more common items.

Now that’s living in luxury!

Duprat views his work as collaboration with the insects.

In 2011, he told The Independent, “It’s their work as much as mine.”

Here’s a video of Duprat discussing his buggy beauties:

Kim Kardashian’s nephew joins the rest of America in thinking she’s a bad dancer

http://twitter.com/#!/KimKardashian/status/230522563141455872

Judging by how quickly she got the boot when she competed on Dancing With The Stars, not many people want to see Kim Kardashian dance. Add to that list Kim’s two-year-old nephew Mason.

Only two and he’s already the smartest member of the Kardashian Klan.

Apparently, ‘The Exorcist’ Doesn’t Even Need Sound In Order To Be Terrifying

Most people who have seen “The Exorcist” agree that it’s one of the scariest movies of all time.

Even for the most jaded horror lovers out there, the film does a great job of leaving you feeling very uncomfortable and afraid. Everything about it is creepy, including the behind-the-scenes footage that didn’t make its way into the final cut.

This compilation of outtakes and superimposition tests on the movie set is silent, but that definitely doesn’t make it any less unsettling to watch.

Right after the three-minute mark is when it gets especially disturbing for me.

Somehow, I’m even more unnerved by the fact that Linda Blair actually suffered a back injury as a result of the scene above. Like I said before, this film is just oozing with creepiness.
