Have an Appetite? How About These 4 Scary Restaurants in the World?

Remember famous King Leonidas (of the 300 movie, of course) and that powerful line that was going like “tonight we dine in Hell?” Well actually that line inspired this article, not because we are going to show you some very weird restaurants in the world that you probably may have heard about already, but because we aim to show you some very scary restaurants in the world that would pretty much classify in the category of “eat once, remain scarred for life.”

Before we proceed, however, we should remind you that by scary, we don’t mean only the thrill and the chill you get down your spine when entering the place for the first time, but also some confusing feelings (ranging from fear, to heart-attacking surprise, to visceral disgust) you might experience while you’re there. So if you’re ready to face some horror and some terror and some insane ways of eating, let’s buckle up and take the ride to four scary restaurants in the world.

1. Marton Theme Restaurant, Taiwan

This one you probably know by know, as it became a famous chain with a concept that can still give people chill down their spines. If you’re that kind of person who feels hepatitis creeping in his or her system every time you see a lonely strand of hair around or in your plate, The Toilet Restaurant is not for you. It is for the other ones who find it actually exhilarating to sit on toilet – like seats and eat from toilet – like bowls and plates. Disgusting? You bet your hospitalization money on it.

2. Cannibalistic Sushi, Japan

Cannibal Restaurant

If eating sushi was a pretty challenge for you, imagine eating delicious Japanese raw fish and dishes like sashimi for instance, all wrapped up in a dough that gets the shape of a female human body. This is called Nyotaimori and you basically sit around the corpse, cut in in pieces and eat it. Not for the fain of heart, to say the least. The “body” is edible and there is also some red sauce dripping out of it at every cut, because the Japanese have this soft spot for realism.

3. Alcatraz ER, Japan

Of course, Japan. What do you get when you go out to eat in a restaurant and end up in a hybrid of a hospital and a prison? Maybe this was Leonidas’s idea of dining in Hell? This one scary restaurant in the world took things up a notch (because Japan) and figured there are already prison – like restaurants and hospital – themed restaurants, why not creeping the living soul out of you? Food is served in shapes and forms one can’t really grasp (severed penis, there, are you happy now?), in cell rooms, right after you made a blood oath (actually they test your blood type), were cuffed and sent to your dirty corner to enjoy dinner, that if you still have a stomach inside your body.

4. Ninja, New York

Maybe less scary, but definitely entertaining, especially if you have minor heart problems or you’re the type who screams at every scene in every horror movie. Ninja Restaurant has a bit of a scare for you: first you walk through some dark, creepy low lit labyrinth, if you’re lucky you get a prison cell all for yourself, and if your nerves aren’t still shattered, here comes the fun part: your waiters are all ninjas, dress-up and skills, and they will do anything in their abilities to make your blood rush through your veins, as these boys are full of tricks.

Now, if you really want to get some chills, we also recommend you to try Lainio Snow Village Ice Restaurant in Finland, as it will give you enough freezing chills to keep you frisky for the entire year. And remember, eating and getting scared to death are very much in the trends right now and of course, you can always choose other types of thrills, like eating in one of the many suspended at high altitudes scary restaurants in the world, or in complete darkness, or having sharks looking in your plate through a glass window… Bon appetit!

True Bromance: 5 Actors Couples Who Make Very Close Friends

If you are at least a bit curious about celebrities personal lives (and this is not about paparazzi style interest in the latest divorce or the future cheating adventure) you may have wondered a few times what do these people do in their spare time, except for showing up in the news for all sorts of sordid reasons? Who are they friends with? Who are they spending time with? What are their hobbies?

Of course, if you are young, hot and famous, the media probably will be interested more in who you’re dating than who is your best buddy (and occasionally follow you in the park while you have a hot – dog), so this time we will take a look on some celebrity actors who share a true bromance with other actors and have what we might call a “normal” life which includes best friends and sports games buddies.

1. Ben Affleck & Matt Damon

Now this is not a new one. They are friends from childhood, attended college together (though in different grades, as Matt is two years older than Ben), shared an Oscar Award and international fame and glory and it seems that they are best buddies, while their true bromance looks like being strong and never fading. Of course, Matt Damon was spotted having couple dinners with Robert Downey, Jr. + One and while nobody managed to accurately trace back the beginning of their beautiful friendship, we just hope that Ben is not jealous.

2. Patrick Stewart And Ian McKellen

Ahhh! Captain Picard and Gandalf are the Internet’s favorite true bromance, as these two are just hilarious and incredibly close. And when you see them wearing those hats, your faith in humanity must get restored in an instant. Apparently these two bundles of awesomeness and immortal friendship and love call each other “Sir”, while having no trouble in pulling pranks one on the other or sharing a few bags of garbage to prove that being together with your best buddy is more important that the landscape you found yourselves into.

3. George Clooney and Brad Pitt

george-clooney-brad-pitt

This is not that kind of close, tight, “call me every evening to tell me goodnight” type of relationship, but they do share a close relation and apparently, a lot of affection and the constant need to pull pranks on each other. George and Brad see each other as often as their schedules allow them to, but maybe this is that type of friendship when you don’t need to hold each other every day to still have that spark and keep the romance going for decades.

4. Great Gatsby and Spiderman: True Bromance for 25 years

Of course we are talking abut Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire, two actors who not so long ago shared the silver screen in Leo’s Great Gatsby, but who also share a personal story, as they know each other for 25 years. They met at an audition and starting then, they came a long way to fame and fortune, only to share that special relationship only guys can have: chat about basketball and look to each other for advice, while Leo seem to play the “awesome uncle” to Tobey’s kids.

5. Benedict Cumberbatch and James McAvoy

The U.K. media knows this even better than us, these two share quite the friendship, to the extent that Cumberbatch, England’s sex symbol and one of the hottest, most talented actors of his generation declared that his friend James McAvoy is far better looking and even “gorgeous on screen.” Ah, a guy’s honesty when complimenting another guy… priceles…

We also heard that Ed Norton and Mark Ruffalo share more than a Incredible Hulk costume, they also share a great friendship. So wasn’t it odd to have Mark take over the Hulk and turn it into a smashing hit? How did Ed feel about this? Intriguing… However, If you have knowledge of other examples of true bromance, don’t be shy in sharing, we always love a good story.

Disney, Where did You go Wrong? The Downfall of Miley, the Disney Princess

The days of Hannah Montana are gone forever. Her soul was eaten by Miley Cyrus, a name that can have many connotations for different people: Disney princess gone wild, fail twerking, and worst decision making ever. Don’t get me wrong, I am not hating on her. She is actually a very beautiful woman (even if her behind is deflated), and her voice is brilliant (if you don’t believe me check out this Backyard session of “Jolene”), but fans just can’t understand what happened with her. Obviously, every individual in this world has the right to live his life as he sees fit, but when you are a public person, and model for little girls between the age of 12 and 18 you have a responsibility. Like so many Disney stars before her (Lindsay Lohan, Demi Lovato), she has discovered her sexuality. She is all “grown up” now.

1. Provocative Performances

At the 2009 choice awards, Miley shocked the entire world by pole dancing during a rendition of Party in the USA. Granted, it may not have been a pole dance in the entire sense of the word, but it was the first time that viewers saw the dark side of Miley. And then came the 2013 VMA Awards performance… The only thing that I could think about was what was her father feeling. He has been with her for so long, and once she was unleashed, this happened.

“They told me [beforehand] that Miley’s going to take her clothes off and dance around and she might bend over” that is all Robert Thick knew before the show. He was probably not expecting any twerking, and neither was the audience. Just take a look at their reactions:

This may very well be the fail of the year, in terms of live performances, but all we can hope is that people will, at some point, forget.

We honestly don’t know whether Miley was proud or embarrassed by her performance but one thing is for certain. She is an actress and a singer, she used to be a Disney Star with a squeaky image, which she probably wished to get rid of. So while she was doing some good things – attracting attention, being her own self, and creating her own style, she was also missing some vital points. She is shaping and sending a message to her fans, and this message should not include sultry references.

As we already said, there is no problem with showing your true self, butthis doesn’t mean that all of us should start harassing people on the street just because we are closet perverts, or twerk just because we feel like it. Is this the message that she wants to convey? I actually feel very sorry for her, because she tried to become sexier, and she failed miserably.

2. The Singing

Sure, Hanna Montana’s clean cut image may be gone, but this did not influence her singing in any way. Miley is still an excellent singer. The music video for “Wrecking Ball” may have been pathetic (She was singing about love, did she really have to shed her clothes and lick everything on set?) but it looked like she was singing from the bottom of her heart, and the song really has a strong message.

Steven Kardynal did a FAR better job with the video:

As far as the “We Can’t Stop” hit is concerned, the clip totally ruins it for me. I have nothing against the song (although it’s also not my favorite). Being yourself, and expressing your personality is perfectly fine, as long as you are not molesting teddy bears, and.. other girls… or giving the crazy look..

In conclusion, Miley Cyrus is another princess who had an overdose of Disney. Having to play it nice all the time must have made her wish to become someone else. Too bad she failed. Here’s some Miley “words of wisdom” for your enjoyment.

10 (Less Known) Celebrities Who Were Twerking Before it Was Cool

There is plenty of material circulating the Internet trying to prove that before Miley Cyrus’s One – Woman – Show at the MTV VMA 2013, there were other established celebrities who were twerking with more style, grace and talent in the same time Miley was barely becoming aware of her own gender. While these articles and comments all have a point – that it wasn’t Miley who invented twerking – we chose to take a look back in history and discover some other celebrities than pop-stars who had the moves and the grooves and were not afraid to show it.

We don’t even want to begin a debate regarding the origins of twerking, but we will let the photos speak for themselves, as we chose a few less known and even unexpected celebrities who were twerking before it was cool and who could have taught Miley a lesson or two…

1. Mr Bean

He’s not actually twerking, but he is definitely the forerunner of the whole phenomena. You can see the man has all the good intentions, he just lacks a bit of coordination and of course, a VMA stage…

mr bean

2. Who’s butt is this anyway?

Wayne Brady’s, apparently and you have to admit the man likes his twerks just as he likes his jokes: shakin’ the audience

3. Carlton was twerking before it was cool

You HAVE to remember the show, its characters and Carlton’s endless passion for dancing in ways that would shame pop – stars and all the new gen of artists. The man had it in its blood and boy was he good at it!

4. Squidward Quincy Tentacles

For those who missed a good part of what it’s called “old entertainment”, Sqidward Quincy Tentacles is a fictional character in the Nickelodeon animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants. Did Sqidward know how to twerk? Well, it was 1999 when he first showed up and the pic doesn’t lie!

5. Beavis and Butthead

Now these guys don’t need no introduction, as if there was, is and will be something crazy and completely absurd to do in this world, they did it already. They were not only twerking before it was cool, they were doing everything before it even resembled coolness. So bow to the masters of eternal mockery and brain – dead humor!

beavis and buthead

6. King of the Hill

It is 1997 and Mike Judge together with Greg Daniels thought that people were cool enough to get hooked by an adult animated sitcom. Apparently they were right, as King of the Hill series lasted until 2010 on Fox. Missed this twerking moment? Here is proof that the guys knew what they were doing. king of the hill

7. The Simpsons (and Homer’s fantasy that came true)

If you didn’t watch The Simpsons, leave everything and do it! You’ll understand why. But talking about twerking before it was cool, Homer either had a fantasy, or a vision of the future, because Miley seems to have made his dream (or his glimpse into fast – forward time) become true.

8. Velma

Velma was cooler than any other cool gal out there. And despite her rather shy and geeky appearance, she was a beast in disguise. Just look at those moves and be honest, don’t you just want to take off her glasses?

velma

9. Aaliyah

She was incredibly beautiful, she was incredibly talented, she had the voice, the bod, the moves and the charisma only great artists had. She left us too early and she will be definitely missed now more than ever, because if she lived, she could have taught Miley the art of twerking without looking cheap.

10. Janet Jackson

We chose to finish this trip back on memory lane saving the best for last. There are countless of pop singers who did the twerking before it was cool enough to become a scandalous viral subject on the Internet. They did it exquisitely and even sensuously, and here we have Shakira and Beyonce, to say the list. But Janet Jackson, friends, she was the goddess of twerking back in the day.

janet jackson

While the subject of twerking before it was cool will still keep the headlines for a while, we shall not forget that before Miley and the word that is now everywhere in urban dictionaries, fighting to become the word of the year 2013, it was just a dancing figure which was so popular back in the day, even fictional characters were doing it.
