Honoring Steelers Win and David Bowie All in the Same Video

This is the only Steelers/Bungles recap you need.

We've seen a lot of online videos since the Steelers defeated the Bengals Saturday night, but this one may be perfection. Created by Pittsburgher Jim Shearer, formerly of VH1's Top 20 Countdown, we especially loved the highlights set to the David Bowie's soundrack. R.I.P.

h/t to Pittsburgh Magazine columnist PittGirl for finding this gem.
 

#SlowTorture: “Silence of the Lambs” House Still on the Market

Despite being one of the most publicized local real estate listings of 2015, the three-story Victorian house featured in “Silence of the Lambs” remains on the market, more than six months after its original listing. 

Located near Perryopolis in Fayette County, the home acted as the residence of Buffalo Bill (Ted Levine), a wild-haired serial killer whom FBI trainee Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) pursued in the film. The house’s actual owners — Scott and Barbara Lloyd, both 63 — put it up for sale in August hoping to move into a smaller, more manageable place. 

The home was the second-most clicked listing on realtor.com in 2015, but experts say that kind of attention doesn't always matter.

“The fact that a home gets a ton of publicity doesn't necessarily add up to a quick sale,” Erik Gunther, a senior editor at realtor.com, told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “Just because I want to gawk at something doesn't mean I want to buy it.”

The home started out at $300,000; the price has dropped to $250,000. 

You can see details and more pictures from the listing here, and watch below to see how producers used the home in the movie.
