Was Bob Dylan joking when he invited Michael Bolton over? It’s a funny story, regardless…

In a collaboration as laughable as it is unlikely, Bob Dylan and Michael Bolton got together about 25 years ago to write a song. Their day-long writing session resulted in “Steel Bars,” which was one of the singles from Bolton’s 1991 “Time, Love, & Tenderness,” which you may know as the album with his version of “When a Man Loves a Woman.”

Here Michael Bolton shares his experience of working with Bob Dylan. Bolton’s amusing reminiscence of their hours together comes complete with a spot-on voice impression and some cute cartoons…

After a quick facepalm, Elton asks him what the lyrics are. To which Grant replies…

Mike Fry recently got a GoPro “cause of all the cool videos people make.” Since it seems like everybody else who has one of these cameras straps it on themselves to document their life (and usually something involving a cliff), Fry wanted to do the same. Unfortunately, he says, he “quickly realized [his] life is lame.”

Perhaps his life isn’t quite as extreme as the other folks who own a GoPro…but it actually seems kind of awesome in comparison…

Draven Rodriguez and his cat, Mr. Bigglesworth, made national news this month when Rodriguez released a photo he hoped to include in the yearbook, featuring the purrfect pair amongst pink and blue lasers.

But the school rejected the image. According to school district spokeswoman Karen Corona, the photo “would not be acceptable for the senior portrait section.” So Rodriguez began a petition hoping to get 500 people to join him in asking the school to include it. He got over 7,000 signatures.

But the school refused to budge on its guidelines for senior portraits.
