National treasure, Rebecca Black, is back with a new “jam.” Already having proved that original artistry wasn’t really her thing, the new song is predictably called, “Saturday.” It features such great lines like:
“Trying to get Friday out of my head.”
“Yesterday was Friday. Today is Saturday.”
“This is our song. We can do no wrong. Are you ready? Are you ready? Are you ready to go?”
The video also features hints of teenage drinking, lots of pelvic thrusts, riding a stuffed triceratops, and much improved utilization of Auto-Tune. Pretty much it’s an example of everything wrong with America. Enjoy.

No, the below photographs aren’t some weird Photoshop effect. It’s called “steel wool spinning” and it gives creative photographers the opportunity to produce some amazing and surreal images. Steel wool spinners have a variety of ways to create their art, but all the techniques involve lighting steel wool on fire and swinging it around while a camera captures long-exposure photos of the speeding fireball and the ensuing sparks.
The other day I saw a poster on Facebook for the upcoming Star Wars VII. I assumed it was fan-made, as I hadn’t heard about any official releases, but of course I had to do a quick Google search to make sure.
One thing led to another and before I knew it I was collecting a bunch of posters for Star Wars VII re-imagined as other movies. I didn’t know this was a thing…but I’m glad it is.
Several of these are from a series Conan O’Brien put together back when Disney first acquired the Star Wars franchise, and then the rest are by other graphic designers who got in on the joke as well.
At a girls’ fastpitch softball tournament back in October, one team wasn’t pleased with how the ump was calling pitches. After a walk that they were particularly displeased with, the coach, pitcher, and catcher met at the mound to plan one of the most unsportsmanlike maneuvers I have ever seen…
Founded in 1970 by a group of students at the Portsmouth School of Art in England, the Portsmouth Sinfonia was a grand experiment. Their entrance requirement was unique indeed: non-musicians were encouraged to join. Or if you were an instrumentalist, you could join, but you had to play a different instrument than what you were trained to play.
The founders, among them a teacher from the school, English composer Gavin Bryars, did not set out to intentionally play badly or be funny. It was more of an experiment in the nature of music. People were required to attend rehearsal and do their best to play their unfamiliar instruments.
They became somewhat of a sensation in the 1970s, being invited to play numerous concerts and produce recordings.
You’ve never heard Strauss quite like this…

When a movie gets made about a celebrity, it’s always interesting to see what other celebrity gets cast to play them. It turns out that us common folk aren’t the only ones with celebrity doppelgängers — celebrities have them, too.
Here are a few side-by-side comparisons of celebrities and their on-film lookalikes.
