Remember when we saw those pictures of Avril Lavigne and Danica McKellar dressed up as sexy post-apocalyptic punk rock warriors and we were all like, “Umm, what?” Well, the video they were filming (for Avril’s new song “Rock N Roll”) is finished, and when you see it, you will be like, “Um, WHAT?!” In addition to Danica, the video features a BearShark, a dog funeral, a painfully awkward Sony sponsorship, and, perhaps most confusing of all, Billy Zane on a rocket-powered Segway. Push play, if you think you’re rock n’ roll enough to handle it! [NYMag.com]

- Katy Perry and John Mayer have recorded a duet together, “Who You Love,” which is kinda more eyeroll-worthy than sweet. It’s all about how neither of them expected to fall in love with each other. Yeah, okay, whatever. The song will appear on Mayer’s upcoming album, which debuts next week. [US Weekly]

Here’s a handy list of awesome things to do this weekend! Keep reading »
A good music video can make a mediocre song tolerable, but a bad music video of an equally bad song creates an aural singularity of fart-stained terribleness. These are the worst we’ve seen so far this year — and 2013 is far from over. Consider the following your State of the Union address for “Things That Will Make Two of Your Five Senses Atrophy,” or perhaps a sonic Cerberus of “Shittiest Song of Summer 2013.” In any case, we’re sorry.

One of the best parts of the college experience is that you get to take your hobbies and interests really, really seriously. From your urban drum circle to art house movies to Zen Buddhism to heavy metal, college gives you the chance to dive into your passions without a hint of self-consciousness. In many cases, you also have a large group of friends who live 10 feet away and are willing to discuss the existential details of any topic til the early morning hours. This all adds up to thinking and saying, “Whoa, that’s deep” a lot. Looking back, some of the things we found super meaningful in our college days might be a bit cringeworthy now, but some of them still hold up, and either way, we’re grateful for the time we got to spend laying on the floor of our dorm rooms reciting Tool lyrics and thinking it was the most profound thing in the world. Here are some other books, movies, poetry, art, music, and scientific concepts we thought were mega deep in college… Keep reading »

Here, we have Scott Shriner from Weezer bass doggin’ it (and making awesome Bass Face). Check out a few others after the jump. [Bass Dogs] Keep reading »
