In a bad year for movies, this handful really stunk up theaters
With the end of summer upon us and (fingers crossed) beginning of Oscar season, we take a look back at the 10 movies from 2010 that we'd like to drive from our memory banks. Read on for who we're telling to be gone -- and whether their particular strain of evil is likely to haunt us in the future.
London saw the opening of the Jellyfish Theatre, a remarkable new performance venue made entirely from donated, free and recycled materials. Reused shipping pallets, recycled nails, old school furniture, and donated wood scraps have been used to construct this organic 120-seat temporary auditorium, which is located a mere 10 minutes' walk from the Globe Theatre on the banks of the Thames. While some see the Jellyfish Theatre as "junkitecture" others see the handmade, recycled theatre as a work of art -- read on for a look at London's newest performance space and tell us your take in the comments!

The Violet sea snail is one weird gastropod. Its lovely lavender shell is paper-thin and fairly fragile – not really a problem because it spends its entire life floating on the surface of tropical oceans.

Whether you approve of tattoos or not, some of the world's sexiest men and women — from Angelina Jolie and Megan Fox to Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt — sport ink. This made us wonder — where in the world do most of the tattooed bods in America live? To figure out which U.S. cities were the most tattoo-friendly, we perused chat forums and looked up every state in several public directories, including Yellow Pages, Google listings, Tattoo Yellow Pages and AAA Tattoo Directory, to find those with the most listed tattoo and permanent makeup shops. Then we looked up which cities in those states had the most shops listed per capita with populations based on latest U.S. Census numbers. We also took into consideration the city's demographics and whether or not it hosted tattoo conventions, remembering that not all tattoo parlors were listed in the directories. Here are the cities that love ink the most:
No. 1: Miami Beach, Fla.
