Five Finger Death Punch is posting a series of webisodes online focusing on the making of each individual track on the band's new double album, The Wrong Side Of Heaven And The Righteous Side Of Hell. The clips will be posted at Loudwire and Noisecreep and will begin with songs from Volume 1 of the set, which is due out July 30th. In the first one, singer Ivan Moody and drummer Jeremy Spencer discuss doing a double album, with Moody saying, "We realized we were sitting on 24 or 25 tracks of music . . . We can shelve a lot of it and put it off for the next album or this album or this that and the other, or we can just make a double album."
According to a new survey by Public Policy Polling, these are the nine animals people are MOST afraid of:
1. 21% of people said that snakes are the scariest animal.
2. 19% were most afraid of alligators . . . but 6% of people said that they wanted one as a pet?
3. 18% said sharks were the scariest.
4. 14% were most afraid of bears.
5. 11% said cockroaches were scariest.
6. 9% were afraid of tigers . . . but 26% wanted one as a pet.
7. 5% were most afraid of bats.
8. 2% were most afraid of spiders. (Which is INSANE. Shouldn't spiders be in the top TWO?)
9. 1% said WOLVES were the scariest animal.
The Internet is SPECTACULAR at ruining our childhood memories, and this is no exception. The latest revelation? CAP'N CRUNCHisn't really a captain.
Someone noticed that the Cap'n only has THREE stripes on his sleeves, not four. Three stripes on the sleeve mean you're a COMMANDER in the U.S. Navy, not a captain. FOUR stripes mean you're a captain.
There's some speculation that he was modeled after a French naval captain . . . which is called a capitaine de frégate . . . who would only have three stripes. But why would Cap'n Crunch be French? Makes no sense, man.
(Here's a photo of a box of Cap'n Crunch compared with the different stripe designations for the Navy.)
On Friday, a grandmother was at her New Mexico home when an intruder broke in. She struggled with him and managed pulled off the bandana covering his face. That's when she discovered it was her 22-year-old GRANDSON, Thomas Clark. Then, he shoved her down and stole her purse. Of course being his grandmother, SHE KNOWS WHERE HE LIVES! He was easily arrested for felony robbery.
The Ed Hardy brand has hit some hard times in the last several years and Ed himself believes Jon Gosselin is to blame. The brand's namesake revealed to the NY Post that he can pinpoint exactly when it all went downhill for his clothing line.
Hardy explained that the brand's licenser Christian Audigier developed a friendship with Gosselin and it was that affiliation that destroyed everything. The TLC reality star was repeatedly photographed wearing their label including once on Christian's yacht with his then-girlfriend Hailey Glassman. Ed said, "That Jon Gosselin thing was the nail in the coffin. That's what tanked it. Macy's used to have a huge window display with Ed Hardy, and it filtered down and that's why Macy's dropped the brand. Christian worships celebrities so much, he will get next to anyone who is famous for anything. If he could have gotten Charles Manson in a shirt, he would have."
Ed is promoting the release of his memoir Wear Your Dreams: My Life in Tattoos.
When it comes to Oreos, I'm a traditionalist. Prefer the original Oreos with a glass of milk. So, I'm not so sure about the new Oreo's flavor for the summer . . . WATERMELON! They're vanilla Oreo cookies with watermelon-flavored cream in the middle. And believe it or not, the early reviews are positive. Some say they taste like watermelon ice cream. By the way, they're only available at Target.
