Every year, Jeff Wyanski of Pleated Jeans compiles a video montage of the year’s most misheard music lyrics. For 2014′s roundup, we hear from Maroon 5, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, MKTO, Jason Derulo and a bunch of other artists who clearly had issues enunciating this year. I know this list only includes pop hits, but I really would like to nominate Miranda Lambert’s “Smokin’ and Drinkin’” where I’m CERTAIN she says “It was one of those fires that burned all night and made your coochie smell like smoke.”
Let’s be honest: despite whatever good times we’ve experienced in our individual lives this year, 2014 was really shitty for the world as a whole. Terrorism, war, Ebola, plane crashes, abuse, and American police brutality — overall, a widespread loss of innocent lives — has left us feeling pessimistic at best. Vox put together this reflection of what the world endured in the past twelve months. Thankfully, 2014 saw a few triumphs here and there too, so maybe it’s safe to hope for a happier 2015. [Vox]
2014 has been a year of many highs, many lows, and many assholes. And in our hopes to start the New Year with a fresh slate, we’re most excited about leaving behind the legendary douchebagginess of this year’s biggest offenders.

DJ Earworm has released his annual year-end pop hit mashup for 2014, “United State of Pop: Do What You Wanna Do,” and it’s — well, it’s pretty much as catchy and vapid as all the rest of his year-end mashups. Seriously! Go back and listen to them. They’re all about dancing and partying and listening to music. It just goes to show that pop hits have more sentimental value to the listener than actual, objective substance. That’s cool, though, we all need to dance sometimes. [YouTube]
Resolutions are generally bullshit. By the second week of January, we are usually back to our old ways of skipping the gym, popping open that second bottle of wine, and buying (more) crap we don’t need off of eBay.

Here are 25 sex resolutions for 2014 — don’t try them all at once now! Keep reading »
