Hellbent on keeping it left-of-center, Dead White Zombies leaked this teaser video for its new show T.N.B., which opens for previews at the end of the month. Housed in a former drug den and billed as a "healing in the hood," the intimate performance is limited to 20 people per show.
Now, let's guess what the hell is going down in this extremely bizarre, abstract hype video.
The 14th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition kicks off with preliminary rounds in Fort Worth in just two weeks. On Friday, the organization tweeted this teaser video in anticipation of the high-stakes, high-pressure event.
They say they're going to find a new Big Tex voice to go with the new Big Tex. I say no. No, this. No auditions. No new bullshit voice. I say it's time for us to do something about it. It's time to demand change. To act. To really make a difference. And we all know how that's done: It's time to change our profile pictures.
A cornerstone segment of the David Letterman show, Stupid Pet Tricks serves as a reminder of precisely how lazy your own pup is. He does not dance in a tutu, operate a blender or ride a skateboard. But what if he did?
On Saturday, animal talent scouts will be at Frank Kent Hyundai in Fort Worth, assessing and judging the quality of weird crap that area pets can sorta do. That means you've got less than a week to teach him one oddball skill to set him above the pack -- totally doable, assuming that your cat, dog, bird or ferret cares as much about being on television as you do.
If you have a fame-driven fur child, stage mom it up between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. this Saturday. (Until they're assessed, each animal must remain on leash, caged or kenneled -- otherwise "audition" quickly converts into "a food chain set loose at an off-model car dealership.")
All tricks must be "safe, unique and fun" and owners must provide whatever props or tools are required to achieve them. For more information, go here.
I can't imagine that life has been easy for Whiplash, the dog-riding monkey. He travels the rodeo circuit with his manager, which seems like a lonely life. And I suspect he blows his stipends on bananas and alcohol, as monkeys who ride dogs are prone to do. Also, he's from Miami -- a terrible place with a surprisingly large monkey population.
Whiplash is currently performing at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, so I called to check in on him. I asked, because I'm a reporter, if we could do a hard-hitting investigative story: photographing the teeny tiny rodeo outfits that hang in his little monkey closet. Brace yourself, for what I'm about to say will likely upset you.
Whiplash, the dog-riding monkey, has only one miniature rodeo outfit.
UT freshman Jacob "Gator" Weaver has a talent for staring that has turned into a YouTube sensation.
"Stare of the Gator," filmed by UT junior Craig Murphy, shows Weaver approaching unsuspecting people on the UT campus only to stare at them, mouth agape. Since its upload on Tuesday, the video has garnered more than 72,000 views and appeared Thursday on the Huffington Post. ...
"It is pretty awesome," Weaver told the Texan. "All my family knows about it and everything, which is kind of weird."
Kind of weird: That's a pretty good description, I'd say.
"A lot of you are probably wondering, What the hell is Mike gonna do on stage tonight?" Mike Tyson asks at the beginning of his one-man show, Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth. "I'm wondering the same thing."
Wonder no more, friends. Tyson is bringing the Spike Lee-directed show, which has thus far been limited to runs in Vegas and Broadway, to Dallas. The dates and locale have not been announced, but we'll be among the first seven media outlets to tell you when they are. Otherwise you can keep refreshing this page over and over again until you find what you're looking for.
