Jim Wynorski, director of such classics as "Chopping Mall", "The Return of Swamp Thing", and "The Bare Wench Project 2", has his next film on the block and it's called "Cleaveagefield". Anything else I say at this point can only ruin the story so, that's it.

John Cusack is set to star in Roland Emerich's "2012", an apocalypse film centering around the Mayan Doomsday Prophecy. No word on if Cusack will stand around in the rain looking all deep and introspective, but one has to assume.

New Pics from Dario Argento's next film "Giallo". Cameras started rolling last week and these are the first pics to surface from the production.

As if Bestiality wasn't bad enough, this guy decided to have sex with a Bull Mastiff. That takes a certain type of deranged courage. He's lucky he's still alive... but I'm sure his new buddies in prison will change that real fast.

A British man has been arrested after spraying a mixture of urine, feces and household cleaners onto vegetables at a grocery store. He also made his way around to a library, where he reportedly ruined 706 books. Damn, this guy needs a frigging hobby. Can't someone buy him a knitting knobby or something?

Will Smith opens school of Scientology, therefore legitimizing my totally illegitimate hate for him. So thanks, Will.

A 28 year old, former participant in the Paralympics, has attempted to amputate his own legs by laying them across a set of train tracks. The reason? New rules state that athletes that only have learning disabilities can no longer compete in the games. Well, I guess he showed them, didn't he!

On this day in history:
