Doot, doot, do-do

“I am not an animal animal!” Inspired by filmmaker David Lynch's 1980 movie, “The Elephant Man,” Nick Rhodes, of '80s pop band Duran Duran, sought out Lynch to direct its upcoming concert film. Lynch obliged, but insisted it be shot in black and white.

Duran Duran resisted further “Elephant Man” inspiration when Lynch suggested the band members wear bags over their heads while singing “Hungry Like the Wolf.”



Channel-surfing the vast cultural wasteland: On Animal Planet's “Treehouse Masters,” a country singer has a speakeasy-themed tree house built for himself.

This is a treehouse, after all, so in keeping with the speakeasy theme, the password is “No icky girls allowed,” and the bartender is serving bathtub Kool-Aid.



Don't know much about history: On this day in 1914, the Panama Canal officially opened as the SS Ancon crossed the landmark waterway.

It would take canal workers another 34 years of back-breaking labor to complete the palindrome, “A man, a plan, a canal, Panama.”
