Valentine’s Day is rapidly approaching.
I know all of you out there are wondering what to get your loved one … flowers, chocolates, a massage.
How about a bleeding candy heart?
Come on. Nothing says “love” like an ooey gooey sticky sweet treat that gushes blood with every bite. Nom nom nom.
Of course, this gift might not be the best for those “faint of heart”, but who wants to hang out with them.

I had to go to Jackson to cover soccer for work last night, therefore no Halloween partying for me.
During my drive, I did take pleasure in looking for spooks and haunts out scavenging for candy. I made a mental list that included, in order of appearance, an adult scarecrow riding as a passenger, a convict and a skeleton trick or treating together, an uncreepy clown, a sexy pink bunny, a fairy and a monarch butterfly riding with a ghoul who looked a lot like a zombie Uncle Fester, and a cowboy.
However, I did not spot this awesome family of Wild Things riding the subway.

I know it’s a bit early, but I celebrated Friday on Thursday, so why not jump ahead and start shooting off firecrackers for the Fourth of July.
For more fun stop motion videos by the same artist, check out the PES YouTube site.
That’s PES, not to be confused with PEZ and that stop-motion fun song.

For the zombie love of your life, I present the ultimate Valentine’s gift – chocolate BRAINS.
If you aren’t in a committed relationship and you’re trying to woo a zombie, you might want to try a chocolate human heart (anatomically correct of course).
If all this romance leads to a betrothal, the happy couple may want a zombie wedding cake.
Newscoma, that’s for you.

I have to give the marketing guys at Nike credit for putting great music beds under their television commercials.
Back in the summer, they used “List of Demands” by Saul Williams for an ad featuring Ladanian Tomlinson. I couldn’t hear it enough.
Now they’re running a pretty stylish black-and-white ad featuring LeBron James. I like the music bed for that one too.
It’s Candy Man by Cornershop – the group that had the poppy “Brimful of Asha” tune a few years ago.
Here’s the full Candy Man tune.
And if you’re suddenly thinking of the original “Candy Man” here’s Sammy Davis, Jr. baby below for you.
As for the other versions of Candy Man, we’ll get to Christina Aguilera and the chocolatier from the original “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” on another day.

It’s a catchy little tune and I’m a sucker for stop motion animation and Pez so how could I not love this one.

Here’s the story.
I watch a lot of Adult Swim on the Cartoon Network as I fall asleep at night.
I can’t get enough of the Venture Brothers, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Robot Chicken, Sea Lab 2021, Harvey Birdman, Cowboy Bebop and Squidbillies. Morel Orel is one of those shows that makes me cringe, but I don’t turn away, but Tim and Eric’s Awesome Show I can’t tolerate.
Anyway, during the run of programming during the late hours, AXE body spray is advertised frequently.
Their ad for their Dark Temptation body spray (which must be a chocolate scent from all I can assume and gather) really wigs me out.
The women in the ad biting off chunks of the chocolate dude are just odd and his melting his own arm for a female-enticing fondue or breaking off his own nose are just creepy.
Here’s an Argentinian version of the ad that airs on Adult Swim. It’s the only 60 second version I could find on Youtube.
Let me know if this weirds you out as much as it does me.
Or maybe it’s just me.
