Do Not Pity the Turkey. Fear the Turkey.

Humans may eat millions of turkeys at Thanksgiving, but don't think that the turkeys aren't fighting back. If YouTube is to be believed, the turkey resistance is growing. They are chasing down terrified reporters in Sacramento and attacking our infrastructure (well, one particular mail truck in Cape Cod), our pets' food supply, even our children.

Packs of turkeys, it appears, hunt with the tenacity of wolves, chasing their suburban prey for blocks and lurking around potential victims, looking more like the raptors in Jurassic Park than a cute Butterball. Frankly, they are creepy. Be sure to brine yours for a day or two before roasting...just to make sure it won't rise from the dead and attack you in your sleep.

  • Arcade Fire at Shoreline
    Arcade Fire opened their US tour at Shoreline Amphitheater to a full house who was there in support of their album "Reflector," which was released last fall. Dan Deacon opened the show to a happily surprised early audience and got the crowd actively dancing and warmed up. DEVO was originally on the bill to support Arcade Fire but a kayak accident last week had sidelined lead singer Mark Mothersbaugh and the duration of the west coast leg of the tour. Win Butler did a homage to DEVO by performing Uncontrollable Urge.
  • Comic Con 2014

    Comic book enthusiasts, Cosplayers, TV and movie fans, and celebrities descended to sunny San Diego for the annual gathering at Comic-Con International.

    Whether hitting up a panel to check out The Simpson's announcement of a cross over with Family Guy or Futurama. Or hearing a new movie with Sam Raimie based on a video game or accidentally rubbing shoulders with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) in cosplay, being a cosplayer, San Diego Comic-Con is the place to be.
