Remember a few years ago, when everybody was doing that horrible “Icing” thing, which was when you presented your “friend” with a Smirnoff Ice and they had to drink it — on one knee! — in public?

Franco-ing is when you spring a James Franco image, video or story on an unsuspecting friend, specifically a friend who does not like James Franco. Amelia just sent me the URL for the video above, in which James Franco lip syncs Rihanna, and now I’ve been Franco-ed. Which means I need a shot of Jameson. [Huffington Post]

Hopefully Maybelline research and development will pounce on this idea ASAP.

Henry experienced several strokes and was in a near wordless, silent state. But when nurses gave him an iPod filled with music from his youth, Henry came back to life. The change in him was both physical and mental — and as neuroscientist Oliver Sacks notes, “He’s reacquired his identity for a while through the power of music.” It’s really a must watch. [Buzzfeed]
