You know how Pan-Pizza is pretty darn open about his fetish for goth girls?
Well....today I learned his little sister is a goth girl.

Uhhhhhhhh.....

And now, to cleanse those horrible thoughts out of your head, here's a fascinating article about the decay of popular culture over time:

The original release of Toy Story 2 didn't have outtakes. The outtakes were added on December 25, 1999. So Cats wasn't the first movie to be "patched" while still in theatres.

Wonder how they got that version. Has it ever been released anywhere?

Anyway, today I learned somebody collected all of those old tape-and-book sets and made them playable online. Good for them!

Before that, A Bug's Life saw its gag reel extended at some point into its theatrical run.

The description says the person ripped it from an old DVD. Which credits did the Ultimate Toy Box use?

Today I learned that Hawaii Five-0 was going to end with a cliffhanger leading to season eleven before said scene was cut in order to give the show a proper closure.

One of the Who's biggest hit songs was written solely to butter up a music critic.

In 1969, Pete Townshend played a rough version of their new album Tommy to rock writer Nick Cohn and was disappointed when he gave it a lukewarm reception, saying it relied too much on the spirituality theme and needed a more upbeat song to lighten the tone. Luckily, the band happened to know that Cohn was a huge fan of pinball, so they opted to squeeze in a lighthearted song in the middle of the story telling about how their deaf, dumb, and blind kid could sure play a mean pinball. Upon hearing it, Cohn declared the album "a masterpiece."

Even though Townshend called it "the most clumsy piece of writing [he'd] ever done", "Pinball Wizard" went on to become one of Tommy's most iconic tracks.

Here's a picture of Danica McKellar with her mother. It's impressive how similar they look. I could've sworn they were sisters. I know the picture is from 2015, but still.

Remember when social media wasn't so toxic?
Happy 58th birthday Alan.
