If you’re looking for an awesome rainy day or ‘It’s way too hot to go outside today’ activity, why not have a go at Barbie doll mummification? It’s all kinds of morbid, geeky fun. Heather and her daughter Izzy started with a trip to the library and some research to create an adorably macabre step-by-step “How to Make a Mummy” list. Then the gathered and/or made all the necessary materials. Barbie’s internal organs and ceremonial death mask are paper cutouts. They used a seam ripper in place of the special tool that ancient Egyptians used to pull the brain out through the nose and a shoebox for the sarcophagus and burial chamber. They also included a tiny toy kitty, because they were sacred to the Egyptians and sometimes part of the burial process.

This is that amazeballs hilarious parody recap from two years ago which I am now bookmarking to refer back to more easily! (Thanks bloodwillhavebloodtheysay for digging out the link.)
I think the piece is almost anthropological in nature, because it’s directly parodying a kind of blog entry from superfans that’s dropped off lately.
Also I worry that anytime I blog about the show it will just turn into this.
Wait, really? The first time I saw the show I watched a very erotic shaving scene with Phil Atkins as Duncan (or maybe Eric Jackson Bradley?!) and William Popp as Malcolm! (Although I’m a bit fuzzy on this, it was a few years ago) … maybe the shaving scene isn’t always erotic?
At Friday’s late show I’m almost 100% sure it was the Tailor instead of MacDuff interrogating Malcolm!
The official trailer for the New Zealand vampire comedy “What We Do in the Shadows, directed by Jemaine Clement & Taika Waititi, about three vampire flatmates coping with the modern world.
"Haha, ghost cup."
I’M GOING TO WATCH THIS SO HARD.
