There’s something for every pop, including merman tails, marijuana vending machines and, of course, preserved racehorse poop. My rule for fatherhood is simple: A dad should take parenting seriously, but not himself. And he shouldn’t take his Father’s Day gifts seriously either. Of course, a lot of families didn’t get the memo, which means more work for HuffPost Weird News. As we do every year, we’ve combed the internet for wacky gifts sure to please the strange dads in your life. You don’t have to thank us ― save it for your dad. If your dad wants to make a big splash this summer, he need only wear a merman tail around the pool.

Woody Harrelson Lookalike Beer Thief Nabbed By NYPD Using Picture(s)

The Crow here for c4ocradio.com

Image result for free blog pics of woody harrelson

NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Police Department used a photo of Woody Harrelson in its facial recognition program in an attempt to identify a beer thief who looked like the actor, according to a report published Thursday. The NYPD also used a photo of a New York Knicks player to search its database for a man wanted for a Brooklyn assault, the report said. Georgetown University’s Center on Privacy and Technology highlighted the April 2017 episode in “Garbage In, Garbage Out,” a report on what it says are flawed practices in law enforcement’s use of facial recognition. The report says security footage of the thief was too pixelated and produced no matches while high-quality images of Harrelson, a three-time Oscar nominee, returned several possible matches and led to one arrest. “The stakes are too high in criminal investigations to rely on unreliable — or wrong — inputs,” Georgetown researcher Clare Garvie wrote. The NYPD said it has been deliberate and responsible in its use of facial recognition and that the technology is merely a means of producing leads, including in homicide, rape and robbery cases. The Georgetown report says facial recognition has helped the NYPD crack about 2,900 cases in more than five years of using the technology.

“It is one thing for a company to build a face recognition system designed to help individuals find their celebrity doppelgänger or painting lookalike for entertainment purposes. It’s quite another to use these techniques to identify criminal suspects, who may be deprived of their liberty and ultimately prosecuted based on the match.” “No one has ever been arrested on the basis of a facial recognition match alone,” Sgt. Jessica McRorie said in a statement. “As with any lead, further investigation is always needed to develop probable cause to arrest.” McRorie says the department is constantly reassessing its procedures and is in the process of reviewing its existing facial recognition protocols. “We compare images from crime scenes to arrest photos in law enforcement records,” McRorie said. “We do not engage in mass or random collection of facial records from NYPD camera systems, the internet, or social media.” A message was left with a representative for Harrelson.

House Of Metal Co-Founder Celebrates 50th Birthday @ His Home Base

The Crow here for c4ocradio

Malone’s Concert Venue @ 604 East Dyer Rd. Santa Ana, Ca. has become The Premier Concert Venue (two stages) in Orange County thanks in part to two (2) people from New Jersey, yes I said New Jersey, Growing up and going through school together in Jersey City, and Ridgefield Park, Edward (eddy) Iggy Cieplinski and Michael Cummings have turned the Indie Metal music scene in Southern Ca. into a metal destination for bands from around the country and abroad with their House of Metal promotions,


Thanks to their annual NAMM Show every year and the numerous concert events and charity work they preform in the community, along with the antics of the Bang Your Head with Mike and Ed posts, they have grown quite the loyal following. This is why bands have clamored to play and be a part of Ed’s Bday parties, if for no other reason but to see if he gets another pie in the face as in years past, any and everyone wants to be there and participate.

Ed’s 50th turned out to be one hell of a celebration with some of Southern Cali’s best band providing the music to a rowdy bunch of metal heads ripe for the show. Up first to start the night and set the tone was the Doom rock of c40c who debuted three (3) new songs off their up coming CD. (to be named later) A band out of Arizona, Full House, provided a plethora of classic rock tunes to keep the crowd at a high pitch of anticipation of what was to follow with Project UFO a tribute to UFO’s early work as well as a few more familiar songs. Last but not least was Early Priest, needless to say we all know where this is going, if you close your eyes you wouldn’t know you weren’t actually listening to Judas Priest, this band is by all intent and purpose a true copy in sound of the real deal. All in all Ed had one hell of a Bday party and had to be poured into an Uber at the end of the night, Good times my freinds, good times.

Rangers Find 3-Eyed Snake In Australian Outback

The Crow here for c4ocradio

Image result for free blog pics of three headed snake

Wildlife authorities in Northern Australia probably did a double take after this sighting along a highway: a three-eyed snake. Rangers discovered the 16-inch baby carpet python in March, just outside of a town called Humpty Doo, according to a Facebook post. It was generally agreed that the eye likely developed very early during the embryonic stage of development. It is extremely unlikely that this is from environmental factors and is almost certainly a natural occurrence as malformed reptiles are relatively common. An X-ray of the creature showed it was especially unusual in that it had one skull with an additional eye socket and three functioning eyes, not two separate heads forged together. Prof Bryan Fry speculated the third eye might have been “the last little bit of a twin that’s been absorbed.” The three-eyed snake was nicknamed ― what else? Monty Python.

Snake expert Prof Bryan Fry of the University of Queensland told the BBC that mutations such as an extra eye are a natural part of evolution. “Every baby has a mutation of some sort ― this one is just particularly coarse and misshapen,” Fry said. “I haven’t seen a three-eyed snake before, but we have a two-headed carpet python in our lab ― it’s just a different kind of mutation, like what we see with Siamese twins.” “It’s remarkable it was able to survive so long in the wild with its deformity, and he was struggling to feed before he died last week,” Ranger Ray Chatto told News.com.au. Although the Facebook post showing the three-eyed snake attracted lots of attention, at least one commenter didn’t think the animal was the weirdest part of the story. “Not even disturbed by the three eyed snake … just incredibly amused that there’s a place called Humpty Doo,” Alysha Day wrote.

‘Guns ‘N’ Rosé’ Beer? Guns N’ Roses Sues Brewery Over Beer Name And Merchandise

The Crow here for c4ocradio

LOS ANGELES ( apnews.com ) — The rock band Guns N’ Roses is accusing a Colorado brewery of piggybacking off their fame to sell beer and merchandise. The complaint says oskarblues.com applied to trademark Guns ‘N’ Rosé last year and abandoned the effort after the band objected. The band filed a trademark infringement lawsuit Thursday against Colorado-based Oskar Blues Brewery, which sells Guns ‘N’ Rosé beer and merchandise and bandannas the group says are associated with singer Axl Rose. The lawsuit says the brewery is still selling the beer and the merchandise. Guns N’ Roses performs with singer Myles Kennedy after induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Sunday, April 15, 2012, in Cleveland. Axl Rose has now returned to the band and is preforming on their present world tour.

Oskar Blues marketing director Kyle Ingram did not immediately return a telephone message seeking comment. The Oskar Blues website describes the beer as, “a crisp AF, subtly hopped rosé-style ale brewed with prickly pear and hibiscus.” DISRUPTING THE STATUS QUO SINCE 2002 in the funky little town of Lyons, Colorado, we shattered craft beer convention by stuffing our voluminously hopped mutha of a brew, Dale’s Pale Ale, into a portable, crushable, infinitely recyclable can. Craft beer in a can stays fresher for longer, and it’s easy to pack in (and pack out) on any soul-saving adventure. We now operate breweries in Colorado, North Carolina and Texas to provide craft beer in a can to all 50 states, Washington, D.C. and 17 other countries. The band wants a court order blocking the brewery from misappropriating its name, destroying the products and turning over profits from Guns ‘N’ Rosé and other monetary awards.

Reports Of Shape-Shifting UFOs Jumped On By British Tabloids

The Crow here for c4ocradio.com

Ufo, Alien, Spaceship, Ship, Extraterrestrial, Sci-Fi

As reported in The Express, “thousands of people across the globe are seeing mysterious shape-shifting UFO.” If some British tabloids are to be believed, UFOs have been lighting up the British skies these days, as if the night skies were an immense Christmas tree. Of course, an unidentified flying object typically turns out to be something other than an ET spacecraft once we take a closer look. In this instance, on March 12, Rob Wheatman, a resident of Gloucester, captured an odd aerial phenomenon on video. Once again, let’s offer this reminder: The vast majority of UFO sightings are eventually explained as natural or man-made objects. While there doesn’t seem to be any outward appearance of fakery going on here, there tends to be an immediate attitude either on the part of individuals who offer alleged UFO videos or from media sources that have a tendency to stretch the idea of credulity with descriptions like “[t]his apparently intergalactic lightshow was filmed above Gloucester last night, and it’s got us, and the cameraman, baffled. What it shows is anyone’s guess…We’re pinning our money on aliens. Definitely aliens.” We consulted a photo analyst who was unimpressed with the sightings. “In this Gloucester video, I noticed first that the object was not in focus. That’s why it looked like a diamond shape. This is a common appearance of out of focus objects with some cameras,” according to Marc D’Antonio, chief photo and video analyst for the Mutual UFO Network. “In that video, the cameraman stated he was looking ‘due south.’ I believe that, due south at some point during the night, you will see Sirius, the brightest star in the northern sky. The slightest disturbance to the air between the camera and the atmosphere in the direction being imaged will cause the image to dance around. This is called atmospheric scintillation,” D’Antonio told The huffpost.com .

Ufo, Light, Lighting, Long Time Lighting

In addition to his work as a video analyst, D’Antonio is CEO of FX Models, he knows a thing or two about things that are real, faked or simply misidentified. D’Antonio and FX Models build miniature versions of classified objects for his clients that include the U.S. Navy, Congress and the joint chiefs of staff. HuffPost asked D’Antonio to look at another reported UK UFO video from January. This video begins with an object over Liverpool. ”In the second video, the object was out of focus at times. The cameraman stated that the object didn’t move, yet it absolutely did, from a position to the right and above a branch to a position just off the tip of that branch. “It had changed direction to reveal its nature ― it was an aircraft, landing lights on when it turned on final approach to a nearby airport. In my opinion, the first video showed an astronomical object ― likely Sirius ― and the second video showed a likely aircraft on landing approach.” Incidentally, the objects in question in these two videos are quite similar to a diamond-shaped “UFO” videotaped in 2015 over another UK town, Tynemouth. In that case, it was determined that the object was, in fact, the bright star Sirius.  If you happen to spot something in the night sky that, at first, seems out-of-this-world remember that you’re more than likely seeing something that is truly astronomical in nature.

The World Famous Doll Hut Gets Heavily Metalized In The House of Metal Way

The Crow here for c4ocradio.com

The World Famous Doll Hut in Anaheim, California, has been home to southern California’s punk rock scene since 1987. This legendary Orange County institution is more than a 100- years-old, a wooden bar room that sits in a warehouse district in Anaheim, California. Originally built in the early 1900’s as a private residence, it became a truck stop cafe in the 1930’s. It was made famous when it was purchased by promoter Linda Jemison in the late 1980’s and ultimately became a live music venue best known for it’s punk rock music shows and mosh pit rough crowds. Since then, there have been many changes of ownership until New Years Day of 2014 where current owner and active show promoter Mike (Big Mac) McGarvey purchased the venue to solidify the Doll Hut’s significance in the permanent Southern California music scene. If those walls could talk, they would scream the stories of great bands who have rocked here, from well known acts that went on to become huge world class names to local acts who still work hard and grace our stage. 

On April 19th, 2019, The Doll Hut was overrun with the heavy metal crowd known as the House of Metal (ers). Promoter Michael Cummings, an Orange county based outfit who normally does shows at Malone’s Bar and Grill 604 east Dyer Rd. Santa Ana, Ca. brought Auggie’s birthday bash to Anaheim along with a cacophony of rock and metal. The only damper on the evening was the fact that Auggie’s band, Augmented Chaos, did not perform due to Auggie coming down with a severe chest infection and could not sing, (BUMMER) but the party continued in his honor.The night started with the Doom Metal sound from the explosive C4OC, who debuted thier new single, Total Bliss, to a sold out crowd that screamed for more. Ronny North, a main stay in the Southern California rock scene and guitar guru, gave a great performance with his new lineup and his running banter and commentary between songs. A new act to the southern cali scene from Arizona, Echos of Angels (EoA) brought there rocking punk oriented hard hitting female led style to the stage with a vengeance only the young can deliver. This writer gives them a big THUMPS UP, a must see band if you get the chance to catch them in your area. Last but not Least was the Amazing, world traveled band, originally from Vietnam, DaVang gave one of their more memorable performances playing songs of freedom from Vietnam as well as cover tunes and originals in the heavy rock guitar oriented sound they are getting well known for. All in all, it was quit a night of celebration for one of Orange Counties local music heroes (Auggie Madrigal). Even though he was not in attendance physically, we all had him in our HEARTS. Come out to The Doll Hut for live music and Beer on tap 7 days a week 7pm-2am.

Smoking Out The Year These Are The Cannabis Industries Top Pot Trends For 420

The buzz over 420 isn’t just media hype, April 20 ― aka “420” ― is considered pot’s biggest day, according to cannabis industry insiders like Robert Arabian, founder of Pop-Up Potcorn, a line of cannabis-infused microwave popcorn, and it should only get more popular now that 33 states have legalized marijuana for medical or recreational purposes. “These days, 4/20 has turned into the biggest Holiday in the cannabis industry and serves as a day of celebration for the advancements the industry has made in the legal space,” Arabian told HuffPost. How is the marijuana industry changing you ask? Here are some significant changes for 2019: Everything CBD — or cannabidiol, the nonpsychoactive ingredient in the marijuana plant — is popping up in all sorts of products, including face masks, jelly beans and even burgers, despite the lack of evidence of its effectiveness for easing pain, insomnia, anxiety and depression. CBD will be sticking around for quite a while, though maybe not in its current form according to Michael Christopher, the CEO of Mood33, a California-based cannabis-infused beverage brand. “We are seeing some proliferation of CBD-infused products that are starting to overwhelm consumers,” Christopher told huffpost.com . “From $9 CBD-infused donuts to $14 CBD-infused brownie mix.

More Women Are Using Marijuana: Sheena Shirvai, director of consumer communications for Eaze, a cannabis-delivery company in California, says women are now behind 75 percent of orders. Last year, baby boomers were seen as the future of sales, but industry experts now see women as the next budding market. Dr. John Oram, the Founder/CEO of NUG, a cannabis company specializing in concentrates, said “soccer moms” are coming into the business in droves ― and it shouldn’t be a surprise. Oram told HuffPost. “Moms generally make the health and wellness decisions in the household. It is natural to expect women to play a greater role in choosing quality cannabis products.” Ray Landgraf of Island Cannabis, which deals with cannabis production technology, says there’s a thirst for pot-infused drinks. “We’re really early on beverages where people are just figuring out the science that will make cannabis beverages a really unique experience. Marijuana Delivery Is The Future: The idea of brick-and-mortar bud shops popping up like Starbucks is one that should be nipped in the bud, according to Brad McLaughlin of BudTrader.com, which bills itself as “the largest cannabis social media platform.” “Dispensaries will go the way of Blockbuster Video. You heard it here first,” McLaughlin said. “People don’t want to leave the pad, especially in major metropolitan cities with heavy traffic congestion like New York, LA and places where it’s cold.” However, many industry insiders such as Bryson Bulda, brand manager of LBS Distribution, a California cannabis company, believe dispensaries are crucial to building burgeoning bud businesses. “Going to a dispensary and talking to budtenders is the only way to actively learn from products and what you are consuming.”

What Began As 3 Naked Women At A Rest Stop Ends In High-Speed Chase In Florida

Someone reported seeing the women Wednesday morning in their birthday suits at a rest area off Interstate 75, according to WFTS-TV in Tampa Bay. Three women in Florida are behind bars after lounging au naturel at a rest stop and then leading Pasco County officers on a high-speed chase that ended when one of them tried to attack officers with a pink baseball bat, authorities said. The three women said they had been staying at a relative’s house but left after an argument. Having nowhere else to shower, they said they used soap and water to bathe on the grass outside the rest stop building. A Florida Highway Patrol officer who responded to the call said that when she questioned the naked suspects, one of them said they had showered and were “air drying.” The women did get dressed before speaking to the state troopers, but then got into a white 2009 Nissan Sentra and drove away before the questioning had finished, according to WTSP-TV. The three women, identified as Oasis Mcleod, 18, Jeniyah Mcleod, 19, and Cecilia Young, 19, now face charges of fleeing to elude police, three counts of resisting arrest, two counts of aggravated assault and three counts of lewd behavior.

Troopers tracked down the vehicle to a convenience store parking lot. One trooper tried to arrest one of the women when she left the store, but her colleague appeared to purposely drive the car at the officer, authorities reported. At the same time, another woman got out of the car with a pink baseball bat and tried to hit the officer, according to an officer’s account in The Smoking Gun. The Nissan again drove away and was pursued by police. Authorities said they eventually stopped the car using spike strips. As officers busted out the windows of the car, the women interlocked arms to keep from being arrested, according to the New York Post. The women were shocked with Tasers before being taken into custody and sent to the Pasco County Jail, where they remained behind bars as of Friday evening, according to jail records charged with several counts of elude police.
