Sunday Digs: Angels & Other Flying Humanoids, Little People, and The Brothers Grimm B-Sides

Here are a handful of goodies from around the Internet that we found interesting this past week:

A general rule among successful murderers? Don’t provide evidence to the police by confessing and/or posting pictures of your victim on your Facebook page.

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a fuzzy blotch…or a smudge on your camera lens…or a hoax! It’s the Mysterious Flying Humanoids of Mexico!

Five hundred brand new fairy tales have recently been discovered after having been locked away for over a century in an archive in Germany. Before you get too excited—as people are apt to do over the thought of brand! new! fairy! tales!—please note that one of the better ones is about a girl who escapes a witch by turning into a pond. In other words, it’s kind of like The Brothers Grimm decided to do their own prequels.

Hey, baby, how would you like six inches of me?

The SCP Foundation. To Secure, Contain, and Protect. Things like SCP-231-7, for example.

Lastly, do you believe in angels? Katie Lentz might.

Russell Hornsby has acted in films and television for well over a decade, appearing in shows like Lincoln Heights, Grey’s Anatomy, Law & Order, and movies such as Meet the Parents and After the Sunset. He now appears weekly on NBC’s Grimm, a show that is kind of hard to explain.

Russell Hornsby: Okay, go ahead.

MB: According to IMBD, Grimm is an “American police procedural television drama series.” And they also categorize it in the genres of fantasy procedural, horror and mystery. Grimm is a pretty hard show to pin down and describe, isn’t it?

RH: Yes. I have a tough time myself and I don’t know if I always get it right. I’m glad someone is able to do it.

MB: Well, there’s just a little bit of everything in it. There’s action, there’s horror, there’s fairy tale, and it is all blended together so well.

RH: I think, as you said, they do it so well and I hope, sooner rather than later, that it would just be its own genre. You know what I mean?

MB: Absolutely. With all of that in mind, what made you want to take the role of detective Hank Griffin?
