Darren Aronofsky Has Started To Build His Arc And It Looks BIG!

noahs arc being built

Hollywood is on flood watch.

Set construction for Darren Aronofsky's Noah has begun and it looks like they are starting with the biggest piece first — the Arc!

The director uploaded a picture of the structure while tweeting:

"I dreamt about this since I was 13. And now it's a reality. Genesis 6:14"

The Bible verse he mentions is the one in which Noah is instructed to build the giant boat and board animals of every kind because God is about to drown the entire planet.

As we've said in the past, Russell Crowe is playing the titular character, while Jennifer Connelly is starring as his wife along with Emma Watson and Logan Lerman.

Most recently, Anthony Hopkins has been confirmed by the Black Swan directory to be playing Noah's grandfather.

New York Area Petco Lets Animals Drown In Flood

Filed under: Sad SadBusiness BlitzPetsAnimal Cruelty

Flooding

Unacceptable!

A Johnson City, New York area Petco let several of its animals drown in a flood.

The Petco stood by and did nothing as the waters rose.

The Susquehana river had begun to flood, prompting evacuations all around, and even another nearby pet store to evacuate its animals by boat. The owner bought a kayak just to save his animals.

The Petco manager would not allow his employees to even temporarily foster the animals.

Petco released a statement on their facebook page, saying:

We are investigating why we did not receive those evacuation orders from the city if this area was known to flood in the past.

Hmm. Funny. Your store was there back when the same flood happened in 2006.

They even said:

An associate went by to check the store at 11:45 p.m. on Wednesday night and there were no signs of flooding or a flood warning in effect.

The store was underwater by Thursday morning.

The Petco is trying to blame the situation on a “backed up drainage system.”

There is no excuse for letting animals die like that.

Josh Duhamel Fergie

Hooray for celeb couples who love charity!

Fergie got the Black Eyed Peas together to put on a benefit show in Josh Duhamel's recently flooded hometown of Minot, North Dakota and raised $1.3 million for relief efforts!

The money went toward the much needed Minot Area Recovery Fund which is bankrolling the town's rebuilding efforts after flood waters forced 11,000 residents out of their homes in June.

Duhamel showed his appreciation for his wife's band on Twitter after their performance Sunday, tweeting:

"A HUGE thank you to @iamwill, @TabBep, @apl_de & #Fergie for their incredible act of kindness for doing #MinotRising. North Dakota loves you."

Will.i.am. responded warmly with:

"@joshduhamel i.am proud to support #MinotRising…this is what its all about…'Americans helping americans' one neighborhood United States."

Sorry Jay-Z and Kanye, but this may have been one of our favorite collaborations of the year! Thanks to helping out those in need, guys (gal)!

Millions Of Spiders Cover Pakistan Trees In Webs

Filed under: HealthInsectsSpider

Pakistan Tree Spiders

Ewww!

We know every creature serves a purpose on this fantastic planet, but this imagery still gives us the shivers!

Due to excessive flooding in Pakistan in 2010 that submerged a fifth of the country, MILLIONS of spiders took to the trees to escape the rising flood waters.

Pictured above are the trees that they effectively cocooned in spider webs, while seeking shelter from the water.

Unfortunately, spiders weren't the only creature affected by the flooding and 20 million human lives were also disrupted as a result.

However, remember that thing about every creature serving a purpose?

In the areas where spiders took over the trees, there are significantly less malaria-spreading mosquitos that are expected to accompany stagnant water.

Hooray for spiders! Creepy, disgusting spiders. Seriously though…good job spiders.
