Much like Navy SEALs, the brains behind the NMA World Edition are not afraid to go almost anywhere.

Case in point, the group's latest computer animated newscast featuring the special forces hit on Osama bin Laden. Public Enemy No. 1 has barely sunk to the bottom of his watery grave, and we already have explainer video, sort of, showing how the operation went down.

Amazingly like a video game, as it turns out. One where the good guys urinate on the bad guy's corpse and he is sent to Hell to be raped by pigs. You know. The usual.

All the news that's fit to treat like an Onion article gone bad.


Live TV by Ustream

The saga drags on.

Even as Bill Zwecker and others were reporting that the producers of "Two and a Half Men" were eying Rob Lowe as a potential replacement for Charlie Sheen, Sheen himself was ramping up to respond to his dismissal.

Taking to his personal airwaves on Ustream, Sheen is promising to address the decision to release him from the show on his livestreaming video stream of consciousness.

The world is rapidly dissolving into two camps: Those who can't get enough #tigerblood and those who want Sheen to disappear. But with control of his own personal broadcast network, the proponent of #winning and troll bashing shows no signs of slowing down. Next installment promised for 9 p.m. Central time.

And do beware before watching, there is salty language in the Korner. Plan better.

The language for this video is straight outta New York. Fugghedabout playing it loud at work.

Chicago is a town that appreciates clean streets after a snowstorm. In fact, mayoral careers have risen and fallen on the ability of the Department of Streets and Sanitation to pull a Mr. Plow and get the white stuff packed away.

The good folks of the Big Apple have been whipping themselves into a blizzard frenzy as New York struggles to get anything done following their big snow over the weekend. "Where are the plows?!?" they cry. "When will the snow be cleared?!?" they demand as the situation becomes critical and, in some cases, apparently deadly.

And along comes a city worker to answer their question with a resounding "be careful what you ask for."

Investigations and lamentations ensue after a front-loader, apparently stuck in the snow, is dragged out by a tow truck repeatedly into a parked SUV - with the angry screams of the apparent owner in the background and a semi-gleeful videographer capturing the whole mess.

Indeed, a supervisor may not be enough to fix this as it seems like shoveling teens may not be the only ones hitting the rum out there.

Paging Michael Bilandic: New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has some questions for you ...

I fantasized about this back in Chicago ...

So begins Kanye West's so-called full-length film for "Runaway" posted to YouTube.

And like his recently controversial proposed album cover for the upcoming album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy," this is a NSFW effort. And yes, there is a half-naked bird woman in the film, but the issues are more with some naughty words than anything else. So earphones should insulate you from repercussions (clean version here).

And as with most of his work, Kanye just might have an instant classic.

Explosions, fast cars, the aforementioned bird woman (fallen angel/Phoenix) and discussing every thing from Devil worship to Illuminati conspiracies to booty calls with ballet in the background, sheep and even some fowl cannibalism, there really is something for the whole family here.

Now, at 34-plus minutes, this won't be getting massive play on MTV. Of course, unless Kanye turned into a "Guido Juicehead" macking at Miami Beach, his best chances of cracking that channel's primetime lineup revolve around awards show hijacking anyway.

But the real question may be whether the world is ready for the rock opera - hip hopera? - again? If anybody can pull it off, Kanye can.

But you can judge for yourself. Settle in at your desk, keep an eye out for the boss and put your company broadband to good use for a half hour.

Kanye West just can't win.

The thought-filter challenged Chicago rapper/producer/gadfly/awards show menace is finishing work on his fifth studio album in six years - "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy". Normally a cause for celebration. But hold on, controversy has a habit of following West around.

Late Sunday afternoon he tweeted that his album art had been nixed by the nefarious "they":

Yoooo they banned my album cover!!!!! Ima tweet it in a few...

Side note: If you aren't following Kanye on Twitter, get on it now. He might be the best thing going in the microblogisphere.

But the days of keeping things under wraps are long behind us and, as promised, Kanye delivered the album art seen to the right via his Twitter stream. You may not be able to buy it anywhere, but there it is for free via TwitPic.

Banned in the USA!!! They tried to play me fam! They don't want me chilling on the couch with my phoenix!

Now, this being Kanye, who knows if it's the real album cover he had planned. But, as always, it does make for a fun moment in the spotlight.

He went on on Twitter to criticize the "they" - he's yet to elaborate - and the history of nudity on album covers.

In the 70s album covers had actual nudity... It's so funny that people forget that... Everything has been so commercialized now.

And there's this thought as his stream of consciousness continued:

I know that cover just blew yall minds ... I wish yall could see how hard I'm smiling right now!!!

More likely to come.

UPDATE: West continued to rap up on Twitter, defending the art direction and his artistic vision in regard perceived appropriateness:

In all honesty ... I really don't be thinking about Wal-Mart when I make my music or album covers #Kanyeshrug!

I wanna sell albums but not at the expense of my true creativity.

When a complex story hits the world view, you can turn to your New York Times or CNN or BBC for comprehensive coverage and insight. But will you get the whole story?

Probably not - not unless you seek out a more informative source. Namely the hard-charging CGI journalists at NMA World Edition. You may remember their news delivery genius from such winners as the CGI reenactment of the the Tiger Woods fracas with ex-wife Elin or the explanation of the Conan O'Brien - Jay Leno NBC The Tonight Show meltdown.

Well, not they're tackling the Brett Favre - Jenn Sterger, umm, affair. As you may have read, the serial retirement enthusiast, is in some hot water for allegedly bombarding the Jets Gameday sideline reporter with flirtatious e-mails and texts of his junk. That's literally sexy time pictures from a grandapa, by the way (new Viagra or Cialis poster boy, anyone?).

Anyway, it's a complex situation that really can't be explained properly without the semi-NSFW (unless you're Lee Abrams) wizardry of CGI news:

Watch that video, filled with kids 7- to 10-years old, re-enacting one of the foulest, most violent and most iconic gangster movies ever made. Think about that as you watch the original, thoroughly NSFW final scene from "Scarface" as Al Pacino dies spectacularly in a cocaine-fueled firefight:

The kids' re-enactment of Tony Montana's death scene is the rage of the Internet this week, a legitimate viral video promising the last bits of a school play gone horribly wrong. Cue the outrage, parental anger and rolling heads of the drama club sponsor who allowed this to happen, right?

Well, not so fast. You can keep the fires of your outrage stoked, but know that this is a hoax. OK, maybe not a full-on, man landed on the moon type hoax. But it's no school play. Turns out it's just a glorious act of self promotion on the behalf of director Marc Klasfeld. He's been behind the lens of videos by Jay-Z, Avril Lavigne and even was a driving force behind Lady Gaga's "Pokerface" video via his Rock Hard films production company.

So, of course, his next step in the creative ladder was to make a sensational bit of child exploitation under the cover of the deep well of creativity the Internet opens to filmmakers, right?

Ahh, the classic Hollywood tale.

"It's a rare place where you can be creative and express yourself freely and it's a very democratic process," Klasfeld told the L.A. Times. "It was a lot of fun."

This is not Klasfeld's first brush with the elusive viral video pursuit, but his Hammer Pants flashmob effort was considerably less, umm, what's the word ... douchey.

To take the over-the-top film even further past the top, Klasfeld doesn't see why setting young kids up to play the title roles in a drug-induced murder scene is all the big a fudging deal. After all, he's a sensitive parent who tries to keep his child from the horrific commercials he sees on TV:

"Everyday when I wake up with my daughter and I turn on the television for her and we're constantly guarding her against all these unnecessary sexual [messages] bombarding her ... so for us to see the reaction against this, well, that was a little shocking."

Klasfeld goes on in this interview to explain to CNN's Headline News Network why this is all just art and since all the kids and parents were OK with the process, he doesn't see what the big fudging stink being created is all about:

No word on what his next project will be, but you can almost hear some Mark Wahlberg dialogue from "The Departed" or maybe the final revenge scene when Clint Eastwood deals with Gene Hackman in "The Unforgiven" performed by a pre-kindergarten class being spooled up in his head. Or maybe those aren't sensational enough to grab the public eye again for this boundary-pusher.

WARNING: If you've never watched cable TV, there may be some offensive language - or beats - in this video.

Mel Gibson was chatting with WGN entertainment reporter Dean Richards the other day when he decided that "Edge of Darkness" was an abt description for the probing questioner he was made to endure.

So, after a bunch of "dudes" and a quick gulp of Starbucks, the actor known for flowing locks, epic productions and a whole raft of crazy in recent years snapped off an errant "asshole" on a hot mic. Hardly the first time it's happened to a reporter, but seldom do you get a dance mix from cursing a scribe.

But this is the YouTube age and nothing goes by for more than a day or two without being remixed. The Internet, as always, making our lives richer.

Or you can watch the original here and make your own version of the mix.

The first shot released at a very NSFW Playgirl.com of Levi Johnston and his armpit hair.

Levi Johnston, or is that Ricky Hollywood, is a classy guy. Yeah, he's doing a Playgirl pictorial, but it's arty, not filled with gratuitous junk.

The Bristol Palin knocker-upper decided to keep little Ricky Hollywood under wraps, electing no to go full frontal, so he can keep things from devolving into some sort of a circus with people thumbing his page for a glimpse at his naughty bits rather than to get to know him as a person.

See? Classy.

Us Magazine had some additional details of the classic moments of Americana preserved on film:

"'The shoot was fantastic!' Johnston's manager said, adding that the nude model wasn't nervous in the slightest. 'We're having a lot of fun with it,' Jones teases. And, ahem, how much did Bristol Palin's hockey-playing ex reveal? 'People are going to see more of Levi than they thought,' Tank Jones tells Us. 'There was a hockey stick involved.' The fun's not over, either: a second photo session takes place Friday. 'Part two is going to be fantastic. That's all I can say.' "

Now, of course we all know this guy is a puckhead of the highest order. So much so that, according to Playgirl consultant Daniel Nardicio's Twitter feed, he whipped out his hockey stick for a couple pictures.

And it must be just that attention to detail that keeps his famous not-mother-in-law, Sarah Palin, willing to leave a seat at the family Thanksgiving table for him. Talking to Oprah on Monday, Palin said she's worried he may not be making the right decisions with his life.

Palin went on to say she finds it "a bit heartbreaking to see the road that he is on right now" and that "it's not a healthy place to be." Palin also said Johnston remains a member of the family and that they can work out any troubles. She said she prays for him and that he has an "open invitation" to Thanksgiving dinner.

One can only wonder with breathless anticipation what will happen next.

anchor.jpgWhat's it take for a news anchor to become a household name in the Internet age? An F'd chicken - and we're not talking fried, either.

Ernie Anastos, who anchors the New York Fox stations WNYW nightly news cast was engaging in that witty banter with the weather guy that we all love so dearly. Not sure what led to the quip, but he paraphrases the old Frank Perdue chicken commercial, saying, "It takes a tough ma to make a tender forecast."

White teeth are flashed in chuckles and perfect hair remains in place ... and then it's into the fryer:

OK. Big deal. So what. Anchors are human, too, right. Mistakes get made.

True, but this is the age of snark and instant video uploads. So not only has Anastos' inadvertent f-bomb blanketed the internet, but he seems to have created a fowl, err, foul new catch phrase: "keep f-ing that chicken." All the kids are using it.

Fox isn't laughing, though. The vice president and general manager of WNYW, Lew Leone, said he's "disappointed" in Anastos' comment. and Anastos apologized during Thursday's newscast.

"I misspoke during last night's newscast," he said. "I apologize for my remarks to anyone who may have been offended."

Not that anyone thinks Anastos, an Emmy-winning anchor, who has been a mainstay on New York's evening news for more than three decades, did it on purpose.

"Everybody likes Ernie, and knows he would never say that on the air," one staffer said in the New York Daily News. "Nobody has a bad word to say about Ernie. He's revered at the station."

He may be revered, but that's not evident in the tremendously horrified expression on co-anchor Dari Alexander's face.

Liam, left, and Noel Gallagher in happier times.

Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher says he's leaving the British pop band because he can't work "a day longer" with his brother Liam.

A statement from Gallagher on the band's Web site says he's leaving the group "with some sadness and great relief."

"It's with some sadness and great relief to tell you that I quit Oasis tonight. People will write and say what they like, but I simply could not go on working with Liam a day longer.

"Apologies to all the people who bought tickets for the shows in Paris, Konstanz and Milan."

The band were due to play a festival in Paris Friday but didn't take the stage. A message flashed to the crowd said "as a result of an altercation within the band, the Oasis gig has been canceled."

For his part, Liam doesn't sound all that broken up about it, according to an interview last week in ContactMusic:

"He doesn't like me and I don't like him, that's it. He hasn't told me what he thinks of anything this year. We've got nothing to say to each other at the moment.

"The only time I see him is onstage and we're a little bit busy (at) that time to be fucking scratching each other."

The brothers have a rich history of violent arguments with eachother, and have taken to various platforms, including Twitter, lately to make their mutual loathing know.

Gallagher's statement sends "apologies to all the people who bought tickets" for the band's remaining shows in France, Italy, and Germany.

Oasis was one of the biggest British bands of the 1990s, with hits like "Wonderwall" and "Champagne Supernova."

Your Facebook status is just lame

Though it probably goes without saying, you should be careful what you post to your Facebook account.

It turns out, the whole world might be watching, er, reading.

The Lamebook site takes submissions from Facebook users of status updates, photos, notes and other things real people have actually posted to their Facebook accounts.

Some people think nothing of airing their dirty laundry; the end result is far more interesting than our favorite afternoon stories.

One of our recent favorites: "Sierra" whose relationship status best resembles a yo-yo:

And while the Web site blurs out photos and last names to protect the guilty, the resulting blog is nonetheless a guilty read (some content NSFW!).

Enter the extremely NSFW 36 Chambers with the Wu-Tang Clan and Legos.

There's a certain kind of mad genius required to mash up the Wu-Tang Clan, Legos and music video. Apparently, David Mortimer is that genius.

David, better known on Vimeo as Davo, has reimagined the video for the classic "Da Mystery of Chessboxin' " off of the giant "Enter the Wu-Tang Clan (36 Chambers)." But of course, this time Legos and stop-motion animation are involved and he has a growing hit with more than 100,000 views since he posted his work in early July.

So what moves a 25-year-old postman from London to remake a classic bit of hard-core hip-hop with Legos? We got in touch with Mortimer to see what's shakin' - and what's next.

Interview after the jump:

The erroneous, NSFW video originally linked to in the Minnesota DFL press release.

Next time, Minnesota's Democratic Party says, it will closely check its Internet links before sending news releases after it had to recall a statement criticizing Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty because it mistakenly linked to a profane YouTube video of an elderly Chinese woman repeating obscenities.

Sometimes, for absolutely no reason, you just need a little hardcore, NSFW Sesame Street hip hop to get you through the day (Bert and Ernie are Channeling M.O.P.'s "Ante Up," by the way.

Play on, playas.
