YouTuber Tries To Recreate The ‘Bart Simpson Megaphone Challenge’

(PCM) YouTuber Kevin Kohler, who runs the popular channel TheBackyardScientist, recently made an attempt to recreate the ‘Bart Simpson Megaphone Challenge’ which was inspired by a cult favorite episode of the long running FOX animated series “The Simpsons”. Kohler set up 10 megaphones back to back to see just how loud of a sound he could create.

Kohler explained in the video that the idea for the challenge came to him when he was watching “The Simpson” and saw Bart’s prank from the episode titled “The Secret War Of Lisa Simpson” which aired in season 8 of the series. In the episode, Bart puts 10 megaphones back to back and creates a sound so loud that it led to a shock wave that shattered all of the windows in town, including his father Homer’s full fridge of beer.

Everything started off well for Kohler with the test challenge as he collected and lined up all the megaphone, but what he failed to anticipate was any type of feedback loop. He attempted to rearranged the megaphones to tone down some of the feedback and then shouted into the first one. His sound was not that loud and was pretty much the same as using only one megaphone, as the power sources that make up the megaphones were not strong enough to amplify the sound to the level he anticipated. The sound ended up becoming quite distorted.

Not thrilled with the way the experiment turned out the first time, Kohler and his assisant then decided to move the megaphones into a circular shape and finally created the ear-splitting noise they desired. The feedback loop they measured was 16 times louder than your average vacuum cleaner. You can watch their entire ordeal and the outcome in the video below:

Happy Days Actress Erin Moran Dead At Age 56

(PCM) Hollywood is mourning the loss of “Happy Days” and “Joanie Love Chachi” actress Erin Moran who was found dead in her Indiana home at the age of 56.

Moran is best known for her role as the lovable Joanie Cunningham on the long running TV sitcom “Happy Days”. She also appeared in “Murder She Wrote”, “Desperation Boulevard” and “Celebrity Fit Club”.

According to Indiana authorities, they received a call reporting an “unresponsive female”. When EMT’s arrive on the scene they discovered Moran’s body and she was already deceased. An autopsy to determine her exact cause of death is still pending.

Moran struggled with drinking and several incidents of bizarre behavior after her “Happy Days” fame. She ended up living in an Indiana trailer park with her husband Steve Fleishmann, but it is being reported that the two were allegedly on their way to being kicked out of the trailer park and were flat broke.

Many of Moran’s “Happy Days” co-stars have expressed their condolences online. Actor/director Ron Howard tweeted “Such sad sad news. RIP Erin. I’ll always choose to remember you on our show making scenes better, getting laughs and lighting up tv screens.”

The “Fonz” himself Henry Winkler tweeted, “OH Erin… now you will finally have the peace you wanted so badly here on earth …Rest In It serenely now.. too soon”

Our sincere condolences go out to Erin Moran’s family and friends during this incredibly difficult time.

About The Awesome Fest:
The Awesome Fest was created in 2010 by promoter Josh Goldbloom as a scrappy DIY community project designed to showcase innovative and cutting edge independent cinema in unique and non-traditional spaces throughout the City of Philadelphia.

Since then, the annual summer outdoor film & music festival has featured well over 250 screenings, concerts, stand-up comics, and art installations, completely FREE to all who attend. Most recently, The Awesome Fest built Center City Philadelphia’s first ever drive-in movie theater, produced the Bruce Campbell Horror Film Festival in Chicago (now in its third year!), launched a 10 week celebration of the 1980’s, hosted an all night horror movie marathon outdoors in the woods at a summer camp, and presented Philly’s largest pizza party ever with Macaulay Culkin’s THE PIZZA UNDERGROUND to a crowd of nearly 10,000 people! There was also that time we attempted to launch a piece of bacon into outer space. We’ll save that story for another time…

Rickles form of sarcastic and self-deprecating humor was an influence to many and he is often looked at as one of the most influential comedians in history. He is one of the most beloved “insult comics” and he received his first big break into superstardom when he appeared on “The Late Show with Johnny Carson” back in 1965. He illustrious career would go on to span over seven decades.

Over the course of his stand-up comedy career, Rickles performed many headlining stints in Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe, and Reno. He was nicknamed the “The Merchant of Venom”, a title he earned and wore proudly and was also a frequent guest on Dean Martin’s “Celebrity Roast”. On of Rickle’s most memorable performances occurred when he roasted former President Ronald Reagan during the inaugural ball back in 1985.

In addition to stand-up comedy Rickles appeared in a variety of TV shows and films over the years. He had guest appearances in everything from “The Lucy Show” to more recently “Hot In Cleveland”. He is also remembered as the voice of Mr. Potato Head in the “Toy Story” film franchise and was set to reprise this voice acting role in “Toy Story 4” which is set for release in 2019. Rickles earned an Emmy award for his performance in the HBO special “Mr. Warmth: The Don Rickles Project” and penned a memoir titled “Rickles’ Book” which was published back in 20017.

Our sincere condolences go out to Don Rickles family and friends during this incredibly difficult time. The entertainment universe has lost yet another great and his spirit will live on through the laughter he has brought to us throughout the years.

CNN Reporter Eats Human Brains On TV

(PCM) CNN is hearing a lot of backlash after their reporter Reza Aslan consumed human brains on live television. Aslan was filming a segment for the new CNN series “Believer” where he paid a visit to a tiny Hindu religious sect in India that still practices cannibalism.

Viewers could hardly believe their eyes when Aslan chowed down on a piece of brain on the air. We can’t believe the editors at CNN would let something like this happen. Many Hindu Americans are the most angered by the clip as they feel that CNN is “sensationalizing” Hinduism and spreading rumors and information about the religion that are just plain untrue. The Hindu sect that was featured in the “Believer” clip has less than 100 followers and the show should not have highlighted this particular sects dated customs.

Followers of the Hindu religion want us to understand that majority of them do NOT eat brains and the segment featured in CNN’s “Believer” was in poor taste, as it is not an accurate representation. The U.S. India Political Action Committees released a statement which said, “With multiple reports of hate-fueled attacks against people of Indian origin from across the U.S., the show characterizes Hinduism as cannibalistic, which is a bizarre way of looking at the third largest religion in the world”

So far, both CNN and Aslan have been relatively quite about the incident, but still appear to be showing support for the new series. You can watch the disturbing clip below, but keep in mind, it is rather graphic and not for those with a weak stomach.

CNN cut the brain-eating part out of their promo for the “Believer” episode, but we found another version that was uploaded by another YouTube user!
