Buckshot: Scattershot

Some fun linkage to end the work week. Enjoy!


Blount County, TN has a new police cruiser. And it's fantastic.


Continuing the law enforcement theme, we have this guy. "One of the stupid criminals," according to the Palm Beach County, FL Sheriff's office.

Still, I'm not sure he's got anything on this criminal mastermind from Chicago.

A custom-made Futurama LEGO set. Bite my shiny plastic ass.

Speaking of LEGO, I stumbled upon this, which is all sorts of awesome:













Okay, the real-life Mario isn't too bad, but the real-life Homer Simpson will haunt your dreams.

This is either complete genius or utter insanity. I can't tell which.

It's a little much, but at only $49.99 it's an affordable conversation piece.

Personal confession: I am way too addicted to the "Pieces of Flair" application on Facebook. These are probably my two favorites of what I've found so far:

Video! I've been embedding these, which seems to work all right. But if anyone's having trouble viewing these, leave a message in the comments and I'll just start using links.

Presenting Troy McClure in: Stop the Planet of the Apes, I Want to Get Off!




An F4 Phantom is driven into a concrete wall at 500mph to test how a nuclear reactor would stand up to a plane being crashed into it.




And a couple of music selections. First up, Alison Krauss and Robert Plant doing Led Zeppelin's "Black Dog."



And here's "When the Levee Breaks" from the same show.



Finally, The Who perform "A Quick One While He's Away." From 1968's The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus. Four guys in their prime, clearly having one hell of a time.




That will do it for this edition of Buckshot. And as always, thanks for stopping by The Den of Mystery. We appreciate your business. Oops, almost forgot to give you your receipt.

Just commenting to let you guys know I'm enjoying the tomfoolery.
