Because I walk my dog mornings and evenings, every winter my knuckles would crack and blister from the nylon leash loop chaffing them in the cold, even through gloves. I tried various over-the-counter lotions to alleviate this, but none helped much.
O’Keeffe’s Working Hands Cream actually solves the problem entirely. I put a tiny dab on my knuckles before gloving-up for an outdoor walk, and I haven’t had any cracking or blistering since I started using it. It’s also pretty cheap, and is effective in such tiny amounts that the one container I bought should last me at least two or three winters easy.
If you have the same problem walking your dog or working outdoors in the Winter, I suggest giving it a try.

There are few things that triggers our primal fear reflex more than spiders, so here’s a Whitman’s Spider Sampler of Creepiness.
I’ve tried to avoid the common gifs everyone’s already seen, but I am intrigued by this completely unconvincing, yet oddly unnerving film snippet, and I’d like to know what (presumably silent) film it’s from:
Here’s the exceptionally creepy spider attack from The Mist:
And here’s Cyriak’s deeply disturbing “Cobwebs”:
Let’s end on a lighter note. There’s a Simon’s Cat with a spider:
Sometimes that’s enough…
Is that mecha-Stark, or Ultron in Stark armor fighting Hulk?
You don’t have to be a fan of drug-references to enjoy Chilian band La Hell Gang’s echoey, spaced-out “So High”.
They’re evidently on tour in the U.S. right now…
Black Hearted Brother is a project featuring Slowdive’s Neal Halstead. Here they are with “(I Don’t Mean to) Wonder”.
Also, evidently the Judge Dredd remake has some impressive slow-motion set-pieces…
