St. Louis poet Neil Hilborn blew the Internet away with his recital of "OCD," a poem about having obsessive compulsive disorder while being in love, originally filmed during this year's Rustbelt Regional Poetry Slam in July.

Criss Angle directed Dee Snider in this stripped down version of Twisted Sister's hit "We're Not Gonna Take It". Angel's direction of the video is clearly in support of his children's cancer foundation, CrissAngelHELP.com and for the upcoming Children's Cancer awareness month of September. Unfortunately the video ended up a big ball of cringe for Snider and Angel.


Three cheers to them for raising awareness for Children's Cancer!

Unfortunately, it didn't detract from Snider looking like a worn-out and leathered Legolas, or from the idea that Criss Angel just isn't a good enough Magician to make Cancer disappear.

In a pretty-much universally offensive Photoshop FAIL, Vogue Brazil decided to superimpose disabilities on their own able-bodied models in a promotion for the Paralymics instead of using ACTUAL Paralympians.



The Paralympians were okay with it...



...but we're still not. We'd rather see more barrier-breaking pics of these AMAZING athletes:

Al Roker, America's favorite formerly-portly weatherman, just lost his shit on international tv, calling Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte a liar, for the lies Lochte recently told about being attacked at gun point in Rio. Which he wasn't. Which makes that a lie. Which makes Lochte a liar.



Lochte, the liar, even admitted to "embellishing the truth" in an interview with Matt Lauer.



Read more about the drama here.

For his punishment, Lochte is getting his own turn on Dancing With the Stars, while other Olympians who created international incidents are actually getting in real trouble for wrongdoing.

Falkirk Outdoors education officer/photographer Craig McLaren had an encounter with a mindfuck of biting midges in the Cairngorm mountains in the eastern Highlands of Scotland:



Thankfully, Google and the National Parks Service today offered up free 360-degree tours of the National Parks. Coincidence, I think not.

I'm staying indoors after that shit.

Neil Hanvey, the terminally ill cancer patient who inspired the hashtag #rogueonewish to get to see the movie before it's release, died Monday in hospice care in England, his family announced.



Hanvey's wife Andrea set up a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds for St. Michael's. And shared the following statement:

"On behalf of all our family we would like to thank everyone who has passed on their condolences following Neil's death last night... We would also like to thank the tens of thousands of people who supported the #RogueOneWish campaign. All the messages of love during the past week have given us a great deal of comfort during a very difficult time. We would also like to thank everyone at St. Michael's Hospice, especially Amy Duncan, without whom #RogueOneWish would not have happened. All donations at Neil's funeral will go to the Hospice's Family Support team and will be used to fund work with children and young people."



Rest in peace, Neil Hanvey.
