Small sampling of early costume parties. I don't remember vampires draping themselves in roadkill but what do I know. And Diddy looks like he's holding the head of Elvis.

Ditto, Jackie -- One Hundred Percent what I was thinking, too!

Followed by... props to Heidi Klum for getting away from that whole I'm-a-supermodel-therefore-I *have*-to-dress-in-a-sexy-costume way of thinking... Diddy is amusing... Zac Posen gets my vote for most creative vampire (I actually quite like the roadkill touch), and Anne Hathaway is a beautiful, but not slutty overdone Cleopatra.

While you may question their sartorial wisdom, you gotta admire their desire to make a difference. Go »

That Guy With The Glasses

Small representative sample of the films presented "in 5 seconds". Several are inspired by the original joke and many last more than 5 seconds, but all are abridged to hilarious result. These are my favorites: Rocky I, II, III, IV, V, & VI; Scarface; Snakes On A Plane; Titanic; and Gladiator. Go »
