Could This Be The “Best” Worst Tattoo Ever?


(PCM) Here’s a lesson everyone … if you are going to be drinking and taking drugs, then it is probably not the best idea to pick up the tattoo needle and sketch some permanent artwork on yourself.

Such a situation happened to one 27-year old who was under the influence of both alcohol and the prescription drug Xanax when he decided to tattoo an all black Charmander from Pokemon on his stomach. Keep in mind the man has zero tattooing nor artistic experience. The little flame on the tail is truly the best part!

Of course, his friends, being the good friends that they are decided to take a picture of the horrific tattoo and post on the internet’s self-proclaimed front page Reddit. The image almost immediately went viral because it truly is such a horrifically bad tattoo, it might actually be good.

Reddit users immediately began photoshopping and taking the blackened Charmander tattoo image and putting on everything from water bottles to t-shirts. Listen up, fashionistas blackened Charmander might just be the hot fashion item to own for your spring collection.

Several sources are saying that the bad tattoo may actually be based off of Tim Burton’s Pokemon version of Charmander, seen here, but either way it is still a pretty good “bad” tattoo!

Champion Chess Player Kicked Out Of Competition For Toilet Phone Usage


(PCM) National chess champion from Georgia, Giaoz Nigalidze, was kicked out of an international competition after officials discovered that he was using a smartphone hidden in the toilet to check on his moves.

Nigalidze was playing Armenian champ Tigran Petrosian in the sixth round of the Dubai Open when officials were alerted by Petrosian that Nigalidze was visiting the bathroom at somewhat regular intervals. His behavior was quite suspicious and upon further investigation the officials discovered that Nigalidze had wrapped a smartphone in toilet tissue and hidden in a bin in the bathroom stall.

Nigalidze initially tried to deny that the phone was his, however he gave himself away by using the very same stall in the bathroom for longer than 10 minutes at a time and when officials looked at the phone it was logged into Nigalidze Facebook account.  There was also a chess program running on the phone, showing his current positions.

The first prize for the Dubai Open International Chess tournament is $12, 000 and currently, in addition to being kicked out of this tournament, Nigalidze could face up to a three year ban if the allegations against him prove to be true.

The New Teaser For Star Wars: The Force Awakens!

StarWars1(PCM) Thanks to Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Pictures, the cinematic second teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is making major waves after debuting to the world yesterday, exponentially increasing the hype for the December 15 release.

John Williams’ iconic score leads us into the second teaser, clocking in at a solid two minutes long, before hitting us with a ton of new footage from the seventh installment in the $4 billion Star Wars franchise.

The teaser opens not on the barren planet of Tatooine but of Jakku, a planet with a similar desert climate, and confirms that John Boyega, who plays Finn, is indeed a stormtrooper. We also get a sneak peek at a new non-computer-animated droid, the BB8, and Han Solo and Chewbacca in the Millenium Falcon. Check out the new teaser below!

Writer-director J.J. Abrams told attendants at the Star Wars Celebration convention in Anaheim, California that he wanted to create the movie without relying completely on CGI, so if you were to watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens without the added computer generated imagery, everything would still flow and make sense.

Abrams also told Good Morning America this morning that what he would like for people to take away from The Force Awakens is that in an ordinary life, extraordinary things can happen.

Star Wars: Episode VII is directed by J.J. Abrams and produced by Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk. Lawrence Kasdan, the script-writer behind Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back, returns to the series to script The Force Awakens. Academy Award-winning composer John Williams is also reprising his role as composer for the

Sarah Silverman Sorry For Fudging Wage Gap PSA


(PCM) A company by the name of Levo League released a video PSA that featured comedienne Sarah Silverman talking candidly about the wage gap issues between men and women. In the video she shared a story about a time that she was paid less than a man for the same job and went as far as to name drop the club that was allegedly involved.

The owner of the comedy club mentioned was infuriated by the PSA and is disputing the story that Silverman told in the video. Silverman has now issued a public apology claiming that she regrets her mischaracterization of the situation.

The story Silverman told was about showing up to perform at set at the New York Comedy Club along with fellow comedian Todd Barry. She claims that her and Barry performed for the same exact amount of time at the same show, however Barry was paid $60 for the night and she was only paid $10. She went on to reveal that when she went the office of club owner Al Martin to question the difference in pay and he responded with “Oh, did you want a $60 spot?” Silverman said it was not the point that she needed $60, but it was more symbolic than anything else.

After the video PSA aired, club owner Al Martin posted on his clubs Facebook page that Silverman had only shown up at the club that night as a guest spot and was unannounced, unlike Barry who was actually booked ahead of time to perform that evening. Martin says that a guest spot does not require the same payment as someone who is booked, and the fact that he even gave her money at all was more than most clubs would do for an unannounced guest. He claims that Silverman must have “forgot that little fact”.

In her statement, Silverman says, “All I can say is I remember that story exactly how I said it. I know that Todd called the club earlier in the day to let them know I was in town if they wanted me to do a set. They put me up for a 15 min spot just after Todd’s 15 min spot. I didn’t expect to get paid, that’s not why I was there, but when I got off stage Al, the sweet club owner, paid me 10 bucks and I signed the payment sheet. I was like, oh, nice. I inferred from that that this was a paid spot not a guest spot. Either way I would have been fine. Then when Todd pointed out that he received 60 dollars for the same spot I went back inside and asked Al why Todd got sixty dollars and I got ten. That’s when he certainly could have said “Because it was a guest spot, Sarah. I was just being super nice and gave you ten dollars for cab money.” But instead, (and I will always remember this exactly how he said it because it was unbelievably hilarious) he said, “Oh- did you want a $60 spot?”

She goes on to say that she should not have mentioned Martin or the New York Comedy Club by name in the PSA and should have just shared a “faceless nameless anecdote” and that her story hardly reflects any true indication of wage gap issues. She added, “To Al, I truly am sorry to bring you into this as you employ women and pay them the same as the men I’m sure. To the maniacs who want to use this as a chit against women’s issues, I ask that you please don’t. Because that would be super sh*tty. Feel free to aim your vitriol at me but leave this issue of working women out of it, K?”

Since Silverman’s apology Martin has posted on Facebook again commending her for taking the step to apologize and that he “fully accepts” her apology. He says that she is welcome perform anytime at his Broadway Comedy Club, booked in advance or not!

You can watch Silverman’s full PSA below, which still remains on the Levo League YouTube channel, despite the controversy.
