Bruce McCulloch's
New Original Comedy Series
YOUNG DRUNK PUNK
Premieres January 21, 2015 on City
Treasured Canadian comic Bruce McCulloch, of Kids in the Hall, returns to the TV screen with a new 13-episode scripted comedy series, YOUNG DRUNK PUNK. Filmed in Calgary, Alberta, this original half-hour show was created by Bruce McCulloch and will premiere on City on Wednesday, January 21, 2015 at 8:30pm ET/PT.
From the clever and caustic mind of McCulloch, YOUNG DRUNK PUNK tells the tale of two teen rebels on the fringes of society . . . or in the suburbs of Calgary, circa 1980. Set to a soundtrack that includes Pointed Sticks, The Buzzcocks, The Demics and The Diodes, Ian McKay and his best friend Shinky are searching for ways to grow up without selling out. In those lost years between high school and “what’s next,” they fight against conformity all the while dodging parents, cowboys, oilmen and responsibility.
"You don't even know. There's so much happening in the world, you don't even understand. Mom, I won't live in your microwave oven world anymore!" - Ian McKay
YOUNG DRUNK PUNK stars Tim Carlson (Gracepoint) as Ian McKay, Atticus Mitchell (Fargo) as Archibald Shinky, Bruce McCulloch as Ian’s father Lloyd, Tracy Ryan (Nancy Drew) as Ian’s mother Helen, and Allie MacDonald (House at the End of the Street) as Ian’s sister Belinda.
"Remember, the world isn't run by people who were popular in high school . . . so our future must be very bright indeed." - Ian McKay
YOUNG DRUNK PUNK is produced for television by Accent Entertainment and SEVEN24 Films and broadcast on City.

Man Missing the top half of his Head Appears in a Mugshot

This is inmate #100087196, also known as Carlos Rodriquez, who was recently charged with Prostitution/Solicit another to commit. The mugshot which can still be found at miami.whosarrested.com/inmates/214613-carlos-rodriguez, a database of Florida arrests, has being stirring up allot of controversy because of the fact that the pictures look like a fake.

adidas Originals | Winter AF 1.3 PK & AF 1.4 PK | Launch Pack
 Inspired by the unpredictable weather conditions of winter, adidas Originals introduces two new silhouettes this season designed to stand up to whatever the colder season has to offer, without sacrificing visual effect.
 First up is the AF 1.3 PK, a high-top silhouette inspired by Germany’s elite tactical police unit, the GSG 9. The shoe blends modern aesthetics with a range of technical elements to create a striking silhouette with practical considerations. The shoe’s full Primeknit upper is structured by coated overlays for waterproofing, reinforced by a weather-resistant lining for protection against the elements. This is strengthened further by an insulation sock-liner and full-length lacing system, finished with embroidered 3-stripes marks and essential branding details. This is then placed atop a rugged hiking outsole for a perfect heavy-duty look.
 Accompanying the high-top iteration, the AF 1.4 PK translates th…
