“We, the undersigned, would like the Obama administration to recognize the need for a new national anthem, one that even a decade after its creation, is still hot and fresh out the kitchen. America has changed since Francis Scott Key penned our current anthem in 1814. Since then, we have realized that after the show, it’s the afterparty, and that after the party, it’s the hotel lobby, and–perhaps most importantly–that ’round about four, you’ve got to clear the lobby, at which point it’s strongly recommended that you take it to the room and freak somebody. President Obama: we ask you to recognize the evolution of this beautiful country and give us an anthem that better suits the glorious nation we have become.”

––This is the actual text of a petition to the Obama Administration to change the national anthem to R. Kelly’s 2003 hit “Ignition (Remix).” Only 95,000 more signatures are needed to guarantee an official response from the White House. Let’s do this. [Whitehouse via Buzzfeed]

Meet The Rock Star Of American Sign Language

This is Barbie Parker giving an expressive performance in front of a crowd of thousands of cheering fans at Lollapalooza. If her name doesn’t ring a bell in your mental dictionary of rock stars, that’s because she’s never been a headliner–she’s a sign language interpreter who performs alongside hugely popular musical acts like Jack White and Green Day. Parker’s company, LotuSIGN, has helped bring sign language interpreters to more musical performances, and the demand for her services continues to grow. “Music is such a large part of who I am,” she said. “I want to be able to open up that experience.” Parker’s performances include air drumming, lip syncing lyrics, dancing, and jamming on an air guitar to communicate each concert to attendees who are deaf or hard of hearing. Check out a couple videos of Parker in action, after the jump! Keep reading »

Dear Rutherford,

I heard you’re a Beatles fan, which is great. I mean, I guess that takes care of that difficult “are you a Beatles or a Rolling Stones fan” discussion. In fact, you might be the biggest Beatles fan, owing to your obsessive collecting and cataloging of their records. Specifically The White Album. It seems you’ve got — how many now? — 693 copies of the iconic record, and plan to keep on collecting. Keep reading »

"Bi-racial" by Sean Fury

I can’t decide what the worst thing about Sean Fury’s “Bi-Racial” music video is. The lyrics (She’s a biracial girl … she’s thinks the world’s gone mad, that she has to choose one side…), Sean’s bad breakdancing moves, his sweater, his earnestness or the acting. I think the acting wins! Presumably that “tug of war” scene (at 1:50)  is meant to represent the biracial girl feeling pulled between the two parts of herself. I don’t know, I’m just riffing here. I believe that Sean Fury had nothing but the best intentions with this song, but I don’t think he realizes that issues of identity can’t be remedied with a hug. I think we could all use a hug after watching this. [YouTube]

“Even when I’m getting my nails done, that’s real player. The average guy can’t see himself getting a French-tip manicure, but I’m not the average guy. … It’s about being spooned and groomed, dipped and whipped, suited and booted, gooted and looted, scuttered and buttered.”

Snoop Dogg-Lion talked to Vice about fashion, fabulousness, and French tips. In fact, Snoop was getting his tips touched up by a manicurist while the interview was being conducted. A master of multitasking in its highest form. [Vice]

Slap 'Em And Lotion 'Em!

Now, this is how you slap an ass. Percussionist Jorge Perez Gonzalez of the band Patex makes beautiful music with female bottoms. Maybe I should be offended, but I find myself rather mesmerized by his skill. And his butt lotioning technique. I prefer Buttcussion to Gangam Style or the Harlem Shake or whatever other dance craze is sweeping the internet this week. [Buzzfeed]
