Contain Your Excitement: “What Does The Fox Say” Is Going To Be A Book!

Contain Your Excitement: "What Does The Fox Say" Is Going To Be A Book!
What Does The Fox Say?

If you haven’t seen Ylvis’s “The Fox (What Does The Fox Say)” music video yet, stop what you’re doing right now and watch it. I’ll wait. You could call it weird or overplayed, but I still happen to think it’s hilarious. Apparently, so do the folks at Simon & Schuster’s Children’s Publishing because the song is coming to book form! On December 10, a picture book based on the song will be released for curious kids everywhere who are still wondering what in fact the fox actually says. (The verdict is still out on that one). Brothers Vegard and Bard Ylvisaker are behind Ylvis, the Norwegian comedy duo with a whole repertoire of laugh-worthy performances under their belts. This latest quirky creation has been viewed over 200 million times and counting on YouTube. Maybe with the money they’re getting from this book deal, they can put some towards researching what the fox actually does say. [ABC News]

Lou Reed Rhapsodizes On Life And Music In His Final Interview

Lou Reed said it himself: “My life is music.” The legendary Velvet Underground frontman, who passed away October 27 at the age of 71, wasn’t exactly known for his bedside manner, but that lovable curmudgeon sure did know a thing or two about sound. Lou gave what would be his final interview on September 21 as part of a photo shoot for French wireless company Parrot, for whom he had recently assisted with the optimization of their Parrot Zik headphones. “You do what you love, or you get arrested,” he deadpans at first, but when the topic shifts to music, his tone turns characteristically, well, lyrical. What a beautiful human being. [Rolling Stone]

This video of Celine Dion cracking up while watching a video of herself is making me crack up. It’s like some kind of glorious Celine Dion inception that I never want to end. I’m glad that Celine is just as confused and entertained by her Celine-ish antics (in this case, rehearsing “Loved Me Back To Life” in a bathroom) as the rest of us. [YouTube via Gawker]

University College London’s Student Union Bans “Blurred Lines”

blurred lines

“Blurred Lines” is, like, so three months ago. But that hasn’t stopped the student union at University College London (UCLU) from banning the song from playing at school events.

Like the University of Edinburgh — another college that banned the song along with five other UK schools — the student union at UCLU believes Robin Thicke’s catchy ditty glorifies date rape and thus isn’t appropriate for the school to play. Said Susana Antubam, a campus Woman’s Officer, “[The song is] a monstrosity of phrases rapists have been known to use against victims.” In fact, according to the BCC, a DJ had to apologize recently because he played  ”Blurred Lines” at the school’s Frat Party night event.

Unbelievably Cool: Listen To This Song Made Entirely By Water

Drink Up

Hey there, sonic nerds: this mini-symphony is made entirely from the sounds of water in Kumamoto, Japan. The area is known for it’s high quality water, so Sony took it upon themselves to make their own water-powered version of Pachelbel’s Canon by going around with high-quality audio equipment and recording the beautiful and varies noises. You may not listen to the sounds of nature quite the same way again.  Also, can we just talk about how scenic it looks there? Sign me up for a visit.

Buckle Up!

Whenever I fly, I take the same airline and I have their vanilla in-flight safety video memorized by now. Yawn. But with their song-and-dance-filled safety video, Virgin America might actually make us attention to those oxygen mask instructions! Have you ever seen more pep over buckling your seatbelt or inflating your life vest?  My only complaint is that I wish flight attendants actually sang in the aisles.
