Adult Swim Gives ‘Black Dynamite’ Second Season

Fans of  irreverent, blaxploitation tinged cartoon, “Black Dynamite,” rejoice! Adult Swim has given it a 10-episode second season order, per Deadline. But sadly you wont see any new action, from 1970s ex-CIA agent, Black Dynamite and his crew until late 2013/early 2014 (that’s a long wait).

The renewal shouldn’t be a surprise though, BD has consistently ranked number one among young men 18-34 in it’s Sunday night time slot.

Well, if the world doesn’t come to an end, we’ll be eagerly waiting for this to come back on the air.

You Cant Afford These: Open Toe Spike Booties by Louboutin

You thought spikes were done and over with but Christian Louboutin says, “nope.” They’re going to keep the trend going with these open toe booties.

The DMX Christmas Meme Is Here

Above is the video that started it all. In it, we find former rap star and current drug addled anthropomorphized canine, DMX, rap-singing the Christmas holiday classic, “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”, and if we may, he’s amazing. Something about seeing the hardcore crackhead gangster singing a sweet tune like this is heart warming.

Below, we have what comes next: the DMX Christmas Meme. Unfortunately, it’s been a slow trickle so we’re going to ask you, the reader, to help us out and send us some great memes using X himself. Anything will do really. As long as they’re funny, we’ll post them. In the meantime, just keep playing that video over and over again, and feel your stone cold heart melt into the holiday spirit. No bahumbugging allowed!

As a bonus, check out the remix, which, as remixes tend to do, is better than the original:

NY School Scares the Crap Out of Teachers, Students with Unanounced Saftey Drill

With all that’s happened the past couple of days regarding the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, it’s understandable that schools everywhere would want to review their safety procedures. But if you’re going to hold a lockdown drill, you might want to inform the teachers and students that it’s, you know, fake.

That was not the case with P.S 79 in East Harlem, on Tuesday, when school officials scared the shit out of teachers and students, still rattled by the CT shootings, when they decided to have a drill and forgot to let them know.

One teacher told the New York Times, “We really thought we were not going home that night. It was probably the worst feeling I ever had in my life.”

The lockdown drill caused panic, in the morning, when a random voice came over the loudspeaker screaming ” ‘Shooter,’ or ‘intruder,’ and ‘get out, get out, lockdown,’” a staffmember said. So naturally, with children “trembl[ing] as they crouched in corners trying to hide”, someone called 911, who sent police on the scene only for them to be informed that it was, in fact, a drill.

How the hell could something so idiotic like this happen? A spokeperson with the New York City Education Department would only say, “We are looking into how this drill was conducted.”

6 Train Jumper Attempted Suicide After Child Porn Charge

Well, this just got weird. The other day, we told you about a man who jumped in front of a 6 train in Manhattan. The man was later identified as 52-year-old, Shawn Klein, and it turns out he had just posted bail after being arrested for possession of child porn. The Daily News says, Klien was rushed to the very hospital where he works as an administrator and he was previously in the news as one of the first gay NY couples to get married atop the Empire State building. After all that drama Klein caused with his suicide attempt, his sister claims he may have survived, “The doctors lost him once on the table and they brought him back,” she said. “That’s all I know. We’re just waiting.”

Good Samaritans in Brooklyn Lift Car Off Girl After Crash

Livonia and Rockaway Ave // Google Streetview

“She was conscious. She was just looking up at us saying, “Please get this car off of me.’ ” Said Arthur Lane, 41, one of the seven men who helped lift a sedan off of a young girl in Brownsville on Wednesday night. 
Reports say, the unidentified young girl was riding a scooter on the sidewalk, with her mother beside her, when the livery cab struck a sedan at Livonia and Rockaway avenues in Brownsville, sending the second car flying toward them.

But some quick action by those good samaritans may have saved the childs life. It took the men two tries before they could get the vehicle off her and on the second try “the mother slid her out from under the car,” Keith Anderson, another rescuer told the Post. “Her legs were twisted up in an “X” formation. I never saw anything like this in my life.”

The girl – along with six other victims hurt in the crash – were taken local hospitals. They’re condition are not yet known
