Bean Dad: Musician John Roderick lets his daughter struggle to open a can of beans for 6 hours



Have you seen Bean Dad trending on Twitter today?

John Roderick is a musician (The Long Winters, Harvey Danger), and podcaster (Roderick On The Line, Road Work, Omnibus, and Friendly Fire). He's also the father to a nine-year-old daughter, and yesterday on Twitter, he decided to share what I'm assuming he thought was a hilarious anecdote about what an amazing father he is.

His daughter was hungry, so he told her to make a can of baked beans. She did not know how to open the can, and he realized that he'd never shown her how to use a can opener. Fair enough! They can be fiddly buggers. But instead of telling her how they work, or showing her how they work, he gave her this "Apocalypse Dad" speech:



Collapse )

UPDATE: "Bean Dad" is actually too nice of a name for a guy who describes himself as a "student of H*tler" and casually uses the N-word and many other slurs as seen in the screenshots here.

UPDATE AGAIN: He deleted his Twitter and MBMBaM have announced that they're no longer using the theme song he wrote for them.

A group of animators re-aimated an episode of 2007's CHOWDER



I don't remember the episode, but it's vaguely Christmas-reminicent. And if you don't know what "Chowder" was, period, well,
In Marzipan City, the young, excitable food-loving Chowder is the apprentice of Mung Daal, a very old chef who runs a catering company with his wife, Truffles and assistant, Shnitzel.

The entire credits list is here. I only knew about it because I follow one person who helped animate it. It's, uh, surreal? even for the show it's based upon, but why the hell not, it's neat.

Zoe Kravitz and Karl Glusman Post Passive-Aggressive Social Media Content

zoe karl.png

It's a public breakup! You know what that means: veiled social media posts. This edition is Zoe Kravitz and Karl Glusman.

Zoe posted this to her Instagram stories:



Seems like pretty obvious shade toward Glusman. Meanwhile, he posted a picture of his wounded leg and captioned it, "BUT I'M LIKE--" This isn't clear whether he's just showing off a gross injury or referencing feeling wounded. Maybe both!

Under a cut, bc the picture is gross.

mia080812w.jpg

Remember last week when we read an infamous profile of Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain? Well, let's read its companion piece-- a profile of indie pop star M.I.A.

The author, Lynn Hirschberg, has a notorious reputation due to these profiles. Love and Cobain accused her of exaggerating, fabricating and falsifying information to create a juicy piece. M.I.A. accused her of the same... and also leaked Hirschberg's phone number because she was so furious after this article.

The Victim of Kenneth Petty (Nicki Minaj's Husband) Begs for Fans' Harassment to End

nicki kenneth.jpg

Media outlets have been publishing a bunch of positive stories about Nicki Minaj because the rapper recently released some pics of her new baby. Why? Because she released those photos to distract from something much darker: Her husband's victim, pleading for an end to the harassment from Nicki's fans.

Kenneth Petty is a convicted sex offender who was charged with raping a teenager at knifepoint. Nicki's fans have been constantly tormenting the woman and her family members. The survivor recently posted a video in which she begs for peace.

She also revealed that she has spoken to Nick personally and that someone from her or Petty's camp offered her $20k to recant her story.

ONTD original-10 songs turning 10 in 2021



Released in Feb 2011, Born This Way went to #1 and garnered comparisons to “Express Yourself” by Madonna and “Waterfalls” by TLC.

For each song I will include a random memory/fact from the song, comment with your own!
[Spoiler (click to open)]


Superbass was a bonus track on the album Pink Friday which was released in 2010, but the song had such good reception that it was released as a single in 2011, which is difficult to get, not all bonus tracks have that. White girls and gays everywhere thought it was impressive to film themselves singing/rapping this song.


We Found Love by Rihanna was released back in the glory days when she would drop a massive new single every Sept. OP thinks We Found Love still sounds fresh a decade later.


On The Floor by Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull was released in February 2011. OP recalls being bemused by the songs massive popularity since J Lo hadn’t had a hit in a minute, a user on ONTD pointed out her judging position on American Idol helped put her back on the scene.


We Are Young by Fun was released in Sept 2011 and OP recalls seeing the song used prominently on Glee and being like the fuck is this? I had never heard the song until it was on glee.


Price Tag was released in January 2011 and while Jessie J went on to release a cute little pop song called Domino, OP recalls price tag as being one of the worst songs of all time. I remember something noteworthy about her and snl so I googled it and apparently it was her first US performance so it was impressive to debut on SNL. Former bi-sexual queen.


Love you like a love song by Selena Gomez & The Scene was released in June 2011 and remains a certified pop bop. OP remembers some gentle controversy where pop star Pink called out Selena for having a horse dyed Pink in the music video. Selena and her team ended up cutting the horse from the video.


You couldn’t go to a club in 2012 without hearing Levels which was released by Avicii in late 2011. The song featured vocals from the great Etta James.


Blow by Kesha was released in 2011 and has a delightfully weird music video featuring the thick bottomed James Van Der Beek.


Hold it against me by Britney Spears was released in January 2011, a great way to kick off the new year. OP thinks the album Femme Fatale is underrated.

What songs speak to you from 2011, ONTD? For me some of these songs I’m like I can’t believe that was ten years ago, whereas others deff feel a decade old.
