The Sideshow
  • Surfing the streets of New York City (Thinkmodo)Most people wouldn't blink at the sight of skateboarders passing by on the street. But a pair of guys in wetsuits riding motorized surfboards down the streets of New York City was a sight to behold, even for the hard-to-impress residents of the Big Apple.

    Technically, these guys aren't surfing. After all, there are no waves to catch, and their surfboards are equipped with retractable wheels and a remote control-operated motor.

    Still, to the untrained eye, it does almost look as if the pair are gliding atop invisible waves as they maneuver around the pedestrians, including a quick-thinking hot dog vendor who reaches out to high-five one of the surfers.

  • Washington, DC city council candidate Ron Moten (campaign site)Political attacks have been around as long as government itself, and they've stretched across all mediums from the paper flier to memes on social media sites like Twitter.

    But Washington, D.C. city council candidate Ron Moten has taken a different route with his new salvo against council member Yvette Alexander, releasing an "attack song," that bemoans Alexander's record.

    The Washington City Paper has posted the song, which is built around the chorus, "All I want to say is Yvette don't really care about us."

    The Washington Post notes that that this song is only the latest is a series of musical offerings from the self-described "civil-rights Republican" Moten.

    Like a similar display surfaced on Neatorama, this pumping light show that is perfectly in time to the catchy beat has reportedly brought onlookers doing "the horse" outside the house. Of course.

    For anyone living in a cave, "Gangnam Style" is the Korean pop star's hit song. The video, showing the rapper doing his trademark move, the "horse dance," turned PSY into a global phenom. The performer's video has been seen on YouTube almost 532 million times -- and counting.

    The tune has gained attention with plenty of parodies, from "Saturday Night Live," the U.S. Naval Academy and, yes, even North Korea.

    And now, a rockin' house in Virginia.

    The scary-fabulous show comes from Edwards Landing Lights. The community of Edwards Landing
