Did you get Radiohead tickets for one of their two surprise shows this week in New York? Most fans didn't, forcing them onto Craigslist to made ridiculous offers. Now if I told you I had an extra ticket, how much of your dignity would you be willing to give me for it?

Rider University and The College of New Jersey safety officials have warned students of a suspect who was arrested for an alleged attempted abduction of a girl and is now free on bail. If that wasn't scary enough, the suspect, Tony Kadyhrob, also resembles a certain creepy-looking actor.

Thom Yorke was seen handing out copies of Radiohead-produced newspaper The Universal Sigh outside of Rough Trade Records in London. A sad attempt to bring hope to a dying industry? Or maybe Yorke is really into newspaper printing houses of today -- dark, desperate places filled with black mold, decaying ceiling tiles soaked with rat urine and the smell of impending death from its aging staff.

Fame: Justin Bieber is a terribly drawn biographical comic. Outside of a reported scene in which Bieber steps out of the shower, nothing exciting happens. No superpowers acquired by a radioactive spider bite. No mutant genes. Nothing. But check out this artwork. The resemblance is uncanny, no? (Via Comic Alliance)
Nyotaimori, also known as body sushi, is the practice of serving sushi on a nude woman. It's been banned in China, though I don't understand why because serving raw meat on a warm surface sounds like a totally healthy, nonbacterial-attracting thing to do. Tough luck, China.
