“Call me Gabe Day, and not Gabe Day-Lewis/’cause if you’re trying to call me out, I’m about to Gabe Day-Lose it,” raps Gabe Day, son of, um, Daniel Day-Lewis in the “official” music video for his song “Green Auras.” See for yourself, as I am rendered completely unable to parse ANYTHING going on here at this time. The brain. It sputters, stops. [Huffington Post]
It’s about time Bob Dylan released a music video for “Like a Rolling Stone,” which only came out, oh, nigh 50 years ago. Is it possible that he could have been working on this very thing for the past 48 years? Possible, sure, but not likely. The interactive video, which I imagine is the first of its kind, allows viewers to use their keyboards or cursors to scroll through numerous channels, each of which mimics a TV format and features a different TV personality lip-syncing the lyrics to you. Mesmerizing! Even more channels will eventually be added to the video, said Yoni Bloch, the CEO of digital agency Interlude (who created the project), noting, “you’ll always miss something because you can’t watch everything at the same time.” [via Mashable]
I’ve been surfing the web all day (just doing, ahem, my job) and have witnessed a myriad of very mixed reactions to Jennifer Lawrence‘s latest look. Some love it, some think it’s just alright, some think it is an absolute TRAVESTY. But we’re pretty unanimous over here — Amelia and I both love it. Jen has had her fair share of hits and misses during the “Hunger Games: Catching Fire” press circuit so far, but never once has she played it safe, so you’ve got to give the girl credit if nothing else! Click through to see the rest of the looks J. Law has worn on the “Catching Fire” press circuit!
I’m going to be honest, I didn’t even watch this video with the sound on. Why bother? I already know the song, and frankly, sometimes I’m just not in any mood to listen to Kanye West‘s voice. So what we have here is the music video for “Bound 2,” the last track on Yeezus, which Kanye debuted on “Ellen” today. Supposedly it was directed by Nick Knight, but it looks more like Kanye shot the entire thing using the Photo Booth on his MacBook where you can, like, duck out of the way and it makes you look like you’re on a particularly glitchy roller coaster or underwater or something. This video has got it all: dappled horses running wild and free into the horizon, stock footage of landscapes and space, Kanye wearing 10 different plaid shirts at once, and its true coup de grâce, Kim Kardashian topless on a motorcycle. I think it’s supposed to look like they’re having sex, or something? I’m not sure. Anyway, as promised, it’s real weird. Enjoy! [Pitchfork] Keep reading »
Brooklyn does it best, and making my borough of residence proud (or, uh, something like that, I think) today is Scott Wiener, who was just crowned with the Guinness World Record for “Largest Collection of Pizza Boxes.” The competition must have been stiff for that title! Needless to say, Wiener is really, really passionate about pizza. I like to think that I am, too, but I have to hand it to him for taking his passion to what we like to call the Next Level. Wiener’s collection, which he began back in 2008, consists of some 595 different pizza boxes spanning 45 different countries. (He’s even written a book on the subject.) Keep reading »
OH MY GOD, YOU GUYS. I have no idea why this video, which is almost a year old, has just begun making the mass rounds on the internet, but it is NOT TO BE MISSED. It’s 44 seconds of a DOLPHIN IN AN AQUARIUM MASTURBATING WITH A BEHEADED FISH, why would you ever not want to watch that? I can’t look away!!!! (Included: one palate cleanser, after the jump.)
