Way More Fun Than A Golden Retriever!

Say hello to Oscar the llama, who has learned how to adorably fetch a sock like a puppy. Who knew llamas could skip like that? Who knew llamas could play fetch? And unlike a golden retriever, you can actually use your adorable llama’s fur for yarn. Or, you know, Internet fame. [Daily Picks & Flicks]

Watch Jack White Add A Folk Twist To A White Stripes Classic

Can The White Stripes Get Back Together Yet?

I am still not over the breakup of the White Stripes, so any little scrap I can get of their hits is a big deal to me. Here’s a touch of folk to brighten up your day: the lovely Showtime concert film “Another Day, Another Time.“ The concert was recorded this fall in New York City and brought together performers from the Coen brothers’ new film “Inside Llewyn Davis.” It will air on December 13 on Showtime and includes Marcus Mumford, Joan Baez, Gillian Welch, and Patti Smith. In the meantime, check out this clip of Jack White performing a folk version of his former band’s song “We’re Going to Be Friends.” [NYMag.com]

This Epic Volvo Commercial Is A Work Of Art

Even Trucks Look Poetic Sometimes

Just when you thought advertising was nothing but a barren soul-sucking trap (I mean, that’s mostly what it is, right?), a company actually bothered to put a little creativity into their commercial. This Volvo ad stars action hero Jean-Claude Van Damme doing one his famous splits while balancing between two trucks  and was shot at sunrise in Spain, all in one take! That’s freakin’ cool. Maybe it’s a little weird to get emotional over a car commercial, but this is just too impressive. Also,  it’s set to an Enya song. Because of course it is. [A Cup of Jo]

Can Teenagers Predict The Future Of Technology?

Can Teenagers Predict The Future Of Technology?

Much to the eye-rolling chagrin of teens, it seems that most people have a tendency to overlook their youthful opinions. After all, they spend their days doodling on notebooks in study hall, don’t they? What could they possibly know about the “real world” or how to shape it?

As it turns out, a whole lot.

According to The Atlantic, teenagers actually have a pretty solid business sense, especially in the realm of social media. Their favorite social networking patterns are an indicator of tomorrow’s Next Big Thing. Writer Derek Thompson puts it best when he says “from Facebook to Snapchat, what appear to be dumb toys for teens wind up billion-dollar industries.” Keep reading »

In Case You Were Wondering, Kim Zolciak Is Back To A Size 4 After Giving Birth To Twins, Like, 10 Seconds Ago

In Case You Were Wondering, Kim Zolciak Is Back To A Size 4 After Giving Birth To Twins, Like, 10 Seconds Ago

Kim Zolciak had twins on November 25, and in what is apparently much bigger news, she is now back to a size 4 again. At least, according to the Twitterverse. She and her 16-year-old daughter Brielle have been retweeting one another’s selfies and cutesy quips about how on earth Kim’s “belly is almost gone” just nine days after giving birth. When Brielle asked the internet how her mom could have possibly lost so much weight so fast, Kim told her it was from chasing after Brielle and her siblings. Kim’s twins, Kaia Rose and Kane Ren, are welcomed by her four other children. According to Kim, the babies are “doing awesome.” I don’t know whether to be annoyed about the worldwide obsession with “post-baby bodies” or just totally impressed and awed by her supergenes.
