You know how the heart emoji was the most popular word of 2014? After viewing Madonna’s Twitter timeline, I’m convinced that she single-handedly made it so.
In an effort to promote her forthcoming album, Rebel Heart, Madonna has apparently hired a 15-year-old to handle her social media accounts, and that 15-year-old is splattering her timeline with heart and smiley-face emoji (but especially heart emoji). In addition, her publicity team has hashtagged her album title, which stands to reason, but they’re accompanying the hashtag with pictures of the most recognizable and well-received historical and cultural figures of the 20th century, photoshopped to look like the Rebel Heart album cover. It, um … it doesn’t come off so well.
Why not? Well, behold… Keep reading »
I assume they discussed ombre maintenance and the best filtering systems for turning water into wine. [Twitter]
It might soon be much easier for all of us to become a little more Christ-like, if only in the “being able to turn water into wine” department. As you’ll see in this infomercial/informational video (seriously though, why is there a fireplace in the background? weird vibes), a tech entrepreneur and a wine expert have developed what they call the “Miracle Machine,” an “accelerated wine-making device for the home” that allows users to turn water into wine using a few affordable ingredients and a smartphone app (I don’t think Jesus had one of those). According to Boyer and James, the Miracle Machine is “controlled by a mobile app that guides you through the winemaking process on your device whilst monitoring progress,” and “takes just three days and a couple of dollars to make wine that would normally cost at least $20.” This counter-top wine maker is still in the development stages, and is projected to retail for $499, but hey, that’s a smile price to pay for the ability to make miracles happen, right?

For most people, bathroom mold is a cross to bear.
For Chyenna Richards in Houston, it’s a sign that God is truly everywhere — including her shower stall.
“People say your house is blessed,” Richards told KRTK-TV. “I see the head, the hair, a cloak.”
Where others see the presence of fungi, Richards sees a likeness of Jesus, and is moved by the holy mold.
“Maybe it means something. Maybe look into yourself and see if you need to change something in your life,” she said.
The “holy mold” began growing a few months ago when Thomas George, who also lives in the house, was serving time in prison. Read more …
A Florida woman is reporting that she spotted Jesus on an episode of the “The Bachelor.” It wasn’t even the new season though, it was Brad Womack’s season, so I’m suspicious. What channel was airing that this week? And how convenient that this news be released during the week of the premiere of Emily Maynard’s run as “The Bachelorette.” I wonder if Brad is behind all this. Conspiracy!
Anyhow, Guerda Maurice of Port St. Lucie claims that she was watching an episode of “The Bachelor” and spotted a tent in the background that she wanted to put in her backyard, so she took a picture of the screen with her cell phone. That’s when things got divine. “My phone was vibrating and so warm, and very warm and hot like a burning smell,” said Maurice. “I flipped the phone and I see Jesus’ picture and I said, ‘Oh my God, where did this picture come from?’” And here is said picture of Bachelor Tent Jesus. Thoughts? My only thought is that if Jesus did choose to appear on Earth, I suspect he wouldn’t want to be associated with “The Bachelor” franchise. Unless he was attempting to present the world with a rose.
Any true believer will tell you that Jesus’ image can appear almost anywhere if you look hard enough. Keep on clicking to see some more of the craziest places Christ has popped up. [Mediaite]
