Abominationz

Abominationz is the ninth studio album by Twiztid. Released October 22, 2012, it was their last release under Psychopathic Records, as they left the label following its release. Abominationz was predominantly produced by Strange Music in-house producer Seven. Featured guests on the album include Royce da 5'9" and Insane Clown Posse. A variation edition of the album featured additional guest appearances by Krizz Kaliko and Glasses Malone. On August 16, 2011, Monoxide stated on Twitter that the next Twiztid album would feature a guest appearance from Hopsin. However, this did not happen. On April 18, 2012, both Jamie Madrox and Monoxide were interviewed on Strange Music's BlogTalkRadio. During the interview, they released Abominationz. Recording for the album started in the first week of February 2012 and ended in late March 2012 as Twiztid prepared for their Kaos and Kronik tour. While Twiztid was on tour Joe Strange began mixing songs and recording of the album resumed in June 2012 after Twiztid had returned from tour.

The Album was finished being recorded and mixed between June 2012 and September 2012. Producer Seven provided a more varied sound for Twiztid on Abominationz, culling from blues on "Bad Side", providing a power ballad sound for "LDLHA-IBCSYWA" and drawing from electro and rap rock throughout the album, as well as underlining the raps and music with horror film-inspired sound design. For the album, Twiztid adopted a faster rapping style which allowed the duo to write more lyrics for the album than previous efforts; the duo's primary lyrical inspiration for the album was anger and hate, with elements of dark humor, including gallows humor. The pamphlet included with Insane Clown Posse's album The Mighty Death Pop! announced that Twiztid's Abominationz would be released on October 23, 2012. The release date was pushed up to October 22. On October 4, the track listing for Abominationz was released. On October 9, the single and a series of samples from the album were released. Abominationz was released in alternate variant editions, each containing unique outer artwork depicting photographs of Jamie Madrox and Monoxide and a bonus track.

The Madrox edition contained the bonus track "Return of the Pervert", the Monoxide edition contained the bonus track "Sux 2 B U", which featured guest vocals by Krizz Kaliko and Glasses Malone. These variant editions were made available to purchase separately, or as a combo; the combined order was shipped with a poster. Those that purchased both Abominationz and Cold 187um's The Only Solution within two weeks of the album's release date received a bonus CD containing Psychopathic Records' "Psyphers". In a December 4, 2014 interview, Twiztid stated that they will be re-releasing the album as well as W. I. C. K. E. D.. Abominationz debuted at number 18 on the Billboard 200 chart and number 4 on the Top Independent Albums and number 2 on the Top Rap Albums charts and number 6 on the Top Tastemaker Albums; as of December the album has sold 29 000 copies. Reviewing the album for Allmusic, David Jeffries gave the album 3.5 stars out of 5, writing, "As far as Twiztid as rappers, here they're as shameless and gross as although the tempo of their delivery has increased, making the Abominationz lyric sheet longer than previous albums.

Abominationz finds Twiztid delivering the hyped-up, hate-filled, horror-rap goods with plenty of punch and the grimmest of jokes."

Male Unbonding

"Male Unbonding" is the fourth episode of the NBC sitcom Seinfeld to be produced, aired on June 14, 1990, as the fourth episode of the first season. In it, Jerry Seinfeld tries to avoid meeting Joel Horneck. Jerry's neighbor, conceptualizes "a pizza place where you make your own pie"; the episode was written by Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld, was the first filmed episode directed by Tom Cherones. This was the first episode produced with Elaine Benes as a character, it was the first episode to use Jonathan Wolff's title music. This is the only Seinfeld episode whose title does not begin with the definite article "The". George tells Jerry, they went to see a play, during which he put his hand in his pocket to get some money and accidentally got some dental floss stuck to his hand. George worries. Jerry has problems with Joel Horneck, who persists in keeping in touch with him, he does not like Horneck. Jerry says that he feels uncomfortable "breaking up with" Horneck, so George suggests that he should pretend that Horneck is a woman and break up normally.

Jerry therefore attempts to break up with Horneck at Monk's Café. Uncomfortable, Jerry assures Horneck he didn't mean it, agrees to take him to see the New York Knicks, although he was supposed to take George; as George tells Jerry that his girlfriend no longer wants to see him, Jerry tells George that he gave away his ticket to Horneck. Although Jerry offers George his own ticket, George does not go to the game with Horneck because he does not know Horneck. Jerry decides to give Horneck both tickets, claiming that he cannot make the game because he is tutoring his nephew; the night of the Knicks game, Jerry is in his apartment talking to his ex-girlfriend Elaine. She jokingly tries to add to Jerry's list of excuses, he discovers that Horneck took Kramer to the game and that Horneck is in the building. When Horneck meets Jerry and Elaine, Horneck invites them out to another Knicks game, they come up with more unusual excuses in an attempt to avoid going out. However, Horneck gets out a newspaper and tries to organize a time when they can all meet, weeks in advance.

Jerry realizes that no matter what excuses he comes up with, he cannot avoid Horneck. Kramer, working under the name "Kramerica Industries", conceptualizes building "a pizza place where you make your own pizza pie". Jerry and George try to persuade Kramer to forget the idea, but Kramer is determined to go on with it. Kramer's pizza parlor idea reappears in episodes such as "The Puffy Shirt" in season 5, "The Couch" in season 6; this is the first episode, made after the original pilot, "The Seinfeld Chronicles". The title of the series was shortened to Seinfeld to avoid confusion with another sitcom called The Marshall Chronicles; this is the only episode. A decision was made to name all the episodes in this way so that the writers would not waste time trying to think of funny titles and instead make the content of the episode funny. However, this decision was made. Jerry Seinfeld tried to have the title of the episode changed to "The Male Unbonding" some time but was unsuccessful; this is the first episode written.

The first version of the script does not include Elaine, despite the fact that one of the conditions given when Seinfeld was given a series was that a female character was included. The character's name was Eileen. Louis-Dreyfus claims that she was unhappy with only being given one scene in the first episode in which she appeared, but said that she performed well in the episode. Other early versions of the script refer to the character of Kramer as "Breckman". Kevin Dunn, who plays Joel in the episode, auditioned for the role of George Costanza in the original pilot; the episode stars Anita Wise, who plays a waitress. Wise appeared again in another episode from the first season of Seinfeld titled "The Robbery". Frank Piazza, a customer at the bank appears in the season 2 episode "The Stranded"; this episode features different title music from the pilot. The standup interstitials for this episode were recorded twice; the set for the interstitials was brightly lit and was designed to look like that of a church basement, but it was remade to look like a nightclub and the material was performed again.

The scene, set in the bank was set in a dry cleaner's. However, this was moved and some of the material was moved to a episode called "The Stock Tip"; the episode had an alternative ending. Jerry finally manages to "break up" with Joel. Joel leaves, but comes back again to tell Jerry that he will bring back the tape. Jerry refers to Joel as Jason from the Friday the 13th films. "Male Unbonding" was filmed on February 13, 1990. When first broadcast on June 14, 1990, the episode attracted a Nielsen rating of 13.6/24, meaning that 13.6% of American households watched the episode, that 24% of all televisions in use at the time were tuned into it. Several reviews at the time compared Seinfeld to It's Garry Shandling's Show, in which Garry Shandling, like Seinfeld, plays a fictionalized version of himself. Jonathan Boudreaux writes that of the four season one episodes produced after the pilot, "'Male Unbonding' is the strongest; this episode centers on the classic Seinfeld theme of the gang

Labia minor

Labia minor, the lesser earwig or small earwig, is a species of earwig. It is widespread globally in temperate climates, preferring warm locations such as compost heaps in parts of its range, it is 4–7 mm long, including the pincer, chocolate brown in color. Labia minor is about half the size of Forficula auricularia, at 4–7 millimetres long, it is chocolate brown, less shiny than the chestnut brown F. auricularia. The whole body is covered with fine yellow setae, the antennae are a paler color; the forceps at the animal's tail are used to help unfurl the wings, in preparation for flight. Unlike F. auricularia, Labia minor flies frequently. Labia minor feeds on decaying other detritus. In cooler climates, it is only found in warm places, such as decaying compost heaps, are most encountered when turning the compost. Unusually for an insect, there is extensive maternal care of the eggs and offspring, with the mother feeding them for a week or two after they hatch. Labia minor is widespread in temperate zones around the world.

It is unclear whether it is a native species in an early adventive species. The first record from the United States dates from 1838, but the species may have been present for a long time before that, it ranges further north, into British Columbia and Quebec than any other earwig species, is the only earwig in Quebec. It has been introduced to Australia, the Galápagos Islands and the Philippines; the species is often overlooked, due to its small size, may be more widespread than is known. Labia minor was named by Carl Linnaeus in the 10th edition of his work Systema Naturae in 1758, under the name Forficula minor; when William Elford Leach established the genus Labia in 1815, Linnaeus' Forficula minor was made the type species of that new genus, renamed Labia minor.
