Tween Bro And Sis Show The Foo Fighters How It’s Done

Irish brother and sister Dylan and Lauren McBride really like the Foo Fighters track “Everlong.” They also happen to be gifted musicians — and in this clip from 2010′s Oxjam Electric Picnic, the pair manage to win over a crowd of opinionated adult music fans with their cover of the hit song. This is so good it makes us want to (finally) learn how to play acoustic guitar. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Jason Schwartzman Strips Down To Show Us An iPhone App

When The New Yorker tapped funny guy Jason Schwartzman to promote its new iPad application, the magazine probably figured he’d make a few jokes and some silly commentary. But the editors probably didn’t expect they’d get Schwartzman wearing nothing but a jean jacket and a strategically placed iPad. In this hilarious clip, directed by Roman Coppola, Schwartzman shows us a typical humdrum day in his Hollywood star life, sings us a song and goes for a dip in his glorious pool — all with the iPad at his side.

Singer Wins Big — One-Million-Dumplings Big

How we wish we could be Edward Pimentel. He’s a lucky winner of the World Karaoke Championships, and the proud recipient of its one million dumpling prize. Yes, dumplings. It seems Pimentel wasn’t the overall winner, but the audience fave — and that entitles him to one million delicious steamed or fried dumplings. They aren’t just being dropped on his doorstep; he’s received a voucher for the million tiny parcels of goodness. That means that even if he were somehow able to choke down 100 dumplings a day, he’d have enough dumplings to last him 27 years

May we suggest some alternative uses for those dumplings? Use them to insulate your house. Use them for skeet practice. Fashion a farm’s worth of inanimate dumpling animals. Or you know, feed an entire city’s worth of people. Your call! [BBC News] Keep reading »

What We Can Learn From The Cosmo Man Summit

Last week marked an important date on the Cosmopolitan magazine calendar: The annual Man Summit — a time to explore how men really feel about themselves and the women in their lives. Because, apparently, Cosmo doesn’t pander to the needs, wants and thoughts of men enough, the Cosmo Man Summit surveyed around 1,500 guys on the serious issues pertaining to men. They then held a five-guy Man Summit panel — populated with psychologists and sociologists — to reflect on the findings.

“We’re asking so much more of men today. We want them to be great providers — but we also want them to get pedicures,” said Cosmo‘s Editor-in-Chief Kate White at last week’s summit. Really? We are? More wisdom from the world of Cosmo after the jump … Keep reading »

Teen Prostitute Makes Reality TV Dreams Come True. What About You?


We all have dreams, goals and aspirations: For some, it’s to one day have a family. For others, it’s to run a successful business. For Yorkshire’s Chloe Victoria, her dream is to make it big as a singer on “X-Factor,” Britain’s version of “American Idol.” There’s nothing particularly surprising about that, except that Chloe Victoria’s day job is as a prostitute. The 19-year-old mother of a 2-year-old has been arrested 140 times in the last two years for violations related to prostitution. Up until a few days before the competition, she was posting ads for a “100 percent English Yorkshire dirty slut” online. Remarkably, despite just an “okay” audition, judges Simon Cowell and Nicole Scherzinger voted her through and she’s on to the next round. Keep reading »

Police Officer Dad “Arrests” 15-Year-Old — For Having Sex With His Daughter

We’re so glad this guy’s not our dad: A California police officer staged a fake arrest of his 14-year-old daughter’s 15-year-old boyfriend after finding out the couple had sex.

The father went to the boy’s house in uniform and told him and his parents that he was being arrested on sexual assault charges. The officer is heard on a cell phone video of the incident telling the young boy, “It does not bode well for you. Do you know what that means? No? Not a good thing that the person you had sex with is a cop’s daughter. The district attorney will probably file charges.” He then handcuffed the boy. Keep reading »
