Phenomenal Footage Of Dancer Battling With Light
18 sep 2013 12:23

There’s few dance videos quite as breathtaking as ‘Nuance’. Created by Marc-Antoine Locatelli it’s the near perfect blend of choreography, motion graphics and jaw-dropping imagery a combination which rarely works together as a whole. But here the effect are simply astounding. The monochrome film sees gifted dancer Lucas Boirat earnestly trying to battle countless geometric shards of light against a backdrop of darkness. Turn out the lights, turn up the speakers and prepare to be amazed.

PETA Is Angry at Katy Perry for 'Roar' Music Video
16 sep 2013 13:37

Katy Perry‘s new music video for her single ‘Roar’ is a jungle adventure featuring big cats, elephants and monkeys, and it has angered the animal rights organization PETA. What puzzles us? Perry’s hard to believe ability to turn plants into a fashionable skirt. Or the fact that the video, which is about roaring like a lion, features zero lions. Or her forcing wild animals to follow strict human guidelines, not to mention her use of electronics and puns in the middle of the wilderness. In a statement by PETA spokesperson Merrilee Burke about their problem with the video, she explained, “Animals used for entertainment endure horrific cruelty and suffer from extreme confinement and violent training methods. They often become stressed and anxious when hauled around and forced into unfamiliar or frightening situations.” “The Serengeti Ranch, the animal exhibitor that we believe supplied the animals for the Roar video, has been inspected by the US Department of Agriculture 22 times since 2001,” she added. All very valid concerns, though they come across as a tad suspicious when you consider that the talk is being aimed at a high profile celebrity. Katy and her team have yet to respond to the comments.

Carrie Underwood Brings Adorable Girl Onstage [VIDEOS]
16 sep 2013 13:36

Carrie Underwood released the music video for her hit single ‘See You Again’ back in June, which featured an adorable little girl named Brooklyn running into her father’s arms after he returned from military service — and she gave the little girl an encore onstage performance on Friday (Sept. 13). Underwood was performing at the Puyallup Fair in Washington when she invited Brooklyn onstage with her. The pair sang the song in matching cowboy boots, with Brooklyn knowing each and every single lyric. Insert all the adorable here, there and everywhere. You can check out that performance video above and the song’s original music video below. Just make sure you stick around to the end of Brooklyn’s duet to hear Underwood cheer the little girl on with words of encouragement and love. It’ll brighten your Monday.

Jimmy Fallon Is 'Jokesenberg' in Spot-On 'Breaking Bad' Parody
16 sep 2013 12:20

Jimmy Fallon is so bad. ‘Breaking Bad,’ that is. The ‘Late Night’ host hilariously lampoons ‘Breaking Bad’ in this parody called ‘Joking Bad,’ in which we see the dark side of selling jokes. Fallon’s clip also features memorable cameos from ‘Breaking Bad’ stars Bryan Cranston, Bob Odenkirk and Aaron Paul and has us lamenting the impending end of the AMC show more than we already are.

Meanest Obituary Ever Will Make You Shudder
16 sep 2013 12:20

Usually, an obituary is a place to pay homage to the recently departed. But not always. A rather unflattering obit recently ran in the Reno Gazette-Journal that did not exactly paint the woman at the center of it in the best light: "Marianne Theresa Johnson-Reddick born Jan 4, 1935 and died alone on Aug. 30, 2013. She is survived by her 6 of 8 children whom she spent her lifetime torturing in every way possible. While she neglected and abused her small children, she refused to allow anyone else to care or show compassion towards them. When they became adults she stalked and tortured anyone they dared to love. Everyone she met, adult or child was tortured by her cruelty and exposure to violence, criminal activity, vulgarity, and hatred of the gentle or kind human spirit.” The obit was so vicious it was removed from the paper’s website, although you can still find it and read on in shock. Do you think the paper was right to remove the obit? Or should they honor the wishes of the departed’s children, even if their tribute to their late mother is a bit harsh?

Servers Surprised With $200 Tips Will Make Your Day
16 sep 2013 12:18

A good tip can really make a server’s day. Just watch this uplifting video for proof. In the video, two men hit up a few diners in Orem, Utah to surprise their waiters and waitresses with $200 tips. The reactions are heartwarming and, for one brief moment, may make the help think serving up Western omelettes to inebriated folks at two in the morning is all worth it.

11 Hilariously Creative Homework Responses
16 sep 2013 12:18

Back-to-school season is well underway, which also means homework is once again a reality. Ugh, major bummer. But when you’re a youngster, homework isn’t all that bad! That’s because kids make it way less boring by being straight up and honest (read: hilarious). For example, when a teacher asks a kid to write what he or she wants to do in the future and the student puts “get a girlfriend,” hey– they’re just being truthful. Check out even more funny homework responses below.

World's Angriest Man Goes Completely Ballistic on Customer Service Rep
16 sep 2013 12:17

If you’ve ever been frustrated by customer service, this video is for you. This is a recording of a call between a man and a customer service rep that someone posted on Reddit. The man is up in arms because he can’t get through to someone named Michelle, who, based on his behavior, we don’t blame for not being available. The man is angry. He’s so angry we need to create a new word to describe his vitriol. Like “mangry,” which is a mash-up of mad and angry we just invented. In the wake of Jimmy Kimmel’s twerking girl prank, several people are questioning whether the call is actually real. Take a listen for yourself and decide whether the whole thing is a hoax. And steel your ears: some of the man’s language is definitely NSFW.

Congrats, Blobfish! You've Been Named the World's Ugliest Animal
16 sep 2013 12:16

Proving that your looks can get you far in an industry other than acting or modeling and that dogs aren’t the only creatures recognized for their outlandish features, the blobfish has won the non-distinct honor of being voted the world’s ugliest animal by the Ugly Animal Preservation Society. Look at it — it looks like Mr. Magoo and Popeye fused their heads together before melting it under a heat lamp. In a public vote, the blobfish beat out a field that included animals whose hideous looks are exceeded only by their revolting names, including the kakapo, the axolotl, the Titicaca ‘scrotum’ water frog and the proboscis monkey. The blobfish, which subsists on crabs and lobsters, can be found off the southeastern coast of Australia and Tasmania. It tends to be found 2,000-4,000 feet below the water, so you don’t have to worry too much about getting surprised by one the next time you take your yacht out down that way. For winning, the blobfish will now become the mascot for the Ugly Animal Preservation Society, although by the looks of it a better prize probably would be a segment on any one of those scores of TV makeover shows.

Aaron Paul Is Doing A Twitter Scavenger Hunt All Over Boise
16 sep 2013 12:05

Aaron Paul is in Boise today. There is almost certainly a legitimate, reasonable, easily uncovered explanation for this, but we are not going to get into it right now because all it will do is distract us from the more important issues at play. Namely, that Aaron Paul ran around downtown Boise today throwing tickets to a Breaking Bad screening out windows and getting people to yell “BITCH” at the top of their lungs, as though he somehow became a cross between Ferris Bueller and Willy Wonka. But I should back up. Yesterday, Aaron Paul tweeted this:

Louis CK Won An Emmy For His Stand-Up
16 sep 2013 12:03

Everyone’s favorite comedian Louis CK just won a Creative Arts Emmy (Emmy for short) for “Outstanding Writing In A Variety Special” for his HBO special “Oh My God.” The ginger-haired funnyman wasn’t at the award show itself, however. Probably because he’s kind of a badass like that and just didn’t want to show. Or it could be something like shingles. Perhaps it’s a combination of the two. THR made a note of CK’s absence. “Oh My God” was, as you may remember, pretty brilliant. Here’s his now-infamous closing bit, “Of Course But Maybe.”

'Sleepy Hollow' Brings Head-Chopping To Fox
16 sep 2013 11:59

Sleepy Hollow has a pretty basic conceit; Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman wake up in 2013 and rumble. But as goofy as the idea is, the show might actually be pretty good, or at least willing to embrace its fundamental silliness enough to be a lot of fun. Here’s a pretty lengthy trailer Fox has thrown together to explain the show a little bit. And, honestly, it’s a lot more engagingly goofy than you might anticipate, being as it’s a drama on Fox from the guys who wrote the Star Trek reboot. Also, the Headless Horseman packing a glowing axe and an automatic weapon is kind of a selling point:

The World's Largest 'Star Wars' Collection Is Better Than Yours
16 sep 2013 11:57

Guinness World Records 2014 is now out, and this year they’ve added a new record for world’s largest Star Wars collection. The award went to Steve Sansweet, who owns approximately 300,000 pieces of Star Wars memorabilia, although he kind of cheated to get them. See, for 14-years Sansweet was director of specialty marketing at Lucasfilm — in other words, he was the guy in charge of all the licensed Star Wars stuff, and could probably just put aside one of everything they made for himself. That said, he still has some pretty unique items, like an animatronic Katina band, multiple full-sized Lego statues and every Star Wars arcade machine ever made.

Ben Affleck Will Direct A Pilot For Fox
16 sep 2013 11:56

Here’s two quick somewhat kind-of, sort-of related comic-book/TV related trade news stories: First up, Ben Affleck — who was recently cast as a Batman described as “tired and weary” in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel sequel — will also be directing his first televison pilot (quick aside: How awesome would it have been if Affleck were Batman, and Jon Hamm were Superman, as had been rumored before Henry Cavill took the role?) The pilot is for a Fox drama (boo! Why not cable, Ben?) It’s called The Middle Man, and it’s a crime drama set in 1960′s Boston, so it’s right up Affleck’s alley. According to the press release: “The Middle Man focuses on the relationship between the FBI agent responsible for taking down the Italian-American mafia and his confidential informant, an Irish-American gangster. Throughout the relationship, ‘the duo’s actions inadvertently give rise to the Irish-American mob in this timeless Boston crime saga.’” So, it’s the precursor to the Whitey Bulger/Stephen Flemmi gang? The Middle Man will be vying for a slot on the Fall 2014 schedule over on Fox. Meanwhile, in news more directly related to comic books, the CW has cast the lead for its planned Flash series. The character will be introduced in The CW’s Arrow during the second season, and if the CW likes it (they will), the network will roll out a Flash series. Who will play the Barry Allen, aka, The Flash? A kid named Grant Gustin, who some may know from Glee. What can we expect?

DC Apologizes For Asking You To Draw Harley Quinn Naked And Suicidal
16 sep 2013 11:54

After DC announced a new Harley Quinn series with writers Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti, they held a contest to let a fan draw a page for Harley Quinn #0. Unfortunately, one of the things they asked contestants to draw on spec was a scene depicting a naked Harley Quinn committing suicide: "Harley sitting naked in a bathtub with toasters, blow dryers, blenders, appliances all dangling above the bathtub and she has a cord that will release them all. We are watching the moment before the inevitable death. Her expression is one of “oh well, guess that’s it for me” and she has resigned herself to the moment that is going to happen." [DC's Open Talent Search] That artists were expected to draw sexualized violence of a woman before they could be considered for a job at DC caused just a wee bit of a kerfuffle, especially among people not familiar with the usual cartoon violence of the Harley Quinn character. This came to our attention last week when an epic rant about the contest went viral as f*ck with over 43,000 notes on Tumblr. Oh yeah, and this contest was announced right before National Suicide Prevention Week. The Mary Sue has an excellent recap of the blowout, but we’ll attempt to summarize. Jimmy Palmiotti responded that he should have included a “description of tone and dialogue” with the scene, adding that “it was supposed to be a dream sequence with Amanda and I talking to Harley and giving her a hard time. I should have also mentioned we were thinking a Mad magazine / Looney Tunes approach was what we were looking for.” He also said the fault didn’t lie with DC Comics for the lack of context with the suicide scene. The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, American Psychiatric Association, and National Alliance on Mental Illness sent a statement to The Huffington Post stating their disappointment. Now DC Comics has responded to that statement, telling HuffPo: "The purpose of the talent search was to allow new artists an opportunity to draw a single page of a 20-page story. True to the nature of the character, the entire story is cartoony and over-the-top in tone, as Harley Quinn breaks the 4th Wall and satirizes the very scenes she appears in. DC Entertainment sincerely apologizes to anyone who may have found the page synopsis offensive and for not clearly providing the entire context of the scene within the full scope of the story." I’m still surprised that the backlash surprised DC. Did they not know that asking hopeful artists to depict a suicide, particularly the suicide of a naked woman, could piss people off? This should be a reminder that a diversity of backgrounds is something every workplace should have. Case in point, before the New 52 relaunch, 12% of DC’s creators were female. And after the relaunch? Only one percent female creators. Generally speaking, you’re going to have some serious blind spots and find yourself scrambling to make apologies after the fact if your creators are limited to 99% one gender or one race or one socioeconomic or geographic background, etc. And don’t be that guy who comments, “but women don’t read comics DURRRR” because they do and that guy sucks.

AT&T Catches Heat For Tacky 9/11 Ad

Well, you just knew it was coming; some bone-headed corporation would — in an impossibly misguided attempt to promote their brand by invoking 9/11, or something — would cross the line and spark an outrage. And AT&T has laid claim to the prize. Yes, in what will surely go down as one of the more ill-conceived bits of product placement in the history of advertising, AT&T tweeted “Never Forget” along with photo of an AT&T phone held up in place of the Twin Towers from it’s official account this afternoon. Naturally, a few folks are outraged about this…

No, You Shouldn't Buy An iPhone 5S. Here's Why.
16 sep 2013 11:41

The iPhone 5c is pretty. The iPhone 5S is impressive, with bells and whistles like a more advanced camera and a fingerprint scanner. And you shouldn’t buy either of them. I’m not saying this to be contrary, or to pick a fight with Apple fans. I’m saying this because, on a practical level, buying most phones, not just the iPhone, does not make sense anymore. Stop and consider when the iPhone was first introduced, in 2007. There was nothing like it, and it revolutionized smartphones. But the iPhone’s main customer base was never you and me. It was the carriers. Remember, when a phone is subsidized, it means the carrier has given Apple a massive wad of cash already, up to $500 a phone; recouping that money is their problem, not Apple’s. And boy, is it ever a problem. So, locking you into a two-year contract is no longer a matter of pure profit for wireless carriers; when you buy an iPhone, it is an absolute necessity. The problem is that increasingly, the two year wireless contract is an endangered species. As technologies like ubiquitous WiFi and white-space broadband propagate courtesy of companies like Google, carrier networks will be less and less crucial to communications. It’s pretty likely that within ten years, we won’t be using carrier networks for data at all and possibly barely use them for voice communications. And it makes even less sense if you want to stay on the cutting edge of technology whether you’re a geek who likes the toys or need the power for work: Every cell phone manufacturer updates their hardware every year, and it’s generally at least incrementally better. I’m just using the iPhone as an example; realistically you can apply this to many other phones. So, essentially, at some point in this cycle, probably sooner rather than later, you will be locked into a contract you no longer need or want but have to keep paying for. And that’s not the only problem.

The iPhone 5c is pretty. The iPhone 5S is impressive, with bells and whistles like a more advanced camera and a fingerprint scanner. And you shouldn’t buy either of them.

So The iPhone 5S Violates Your Constitutional Rights
16 sep 2013 11:39

It’s very rare that an object can violate your Constitution rights just by existing. Leave it to Apple, and the iPhone 5S, to somehow pull this off. Specifically, the iPhone 5S’s fancy new fingerprint scanner basically is an accidental end-run around the Fifth Amendment. How the hell does that work? It comes down to what the Supreme Court has defined as “testimonial,” as Wired breaks down: If the police demand that you give them the key to a lockbox that happens to contain incriminating evidence, turning over the key wouldn’t be testimonial if it’s just a physical act that doesn’t reveal anything you know. However, if the police try to force you to divulge the combination to a wall safe, your response would reveal the contents of your mind — and so would implicate the Fifth Amendment. In other words, if for some reason the police want to take a look at your phone, if you use a fingerprint scanner, they can make you open it and browse through. But if it’s password-encoded, they can’t. Oh, those wacky laws! Of course, this would also be a violation of the Fourth Amendment but that one seems to be on hold lately. Wired notes that requiring both the fingerprint scanner and a combination to access your phone would make it a violation of the Fifth, and probably something Apple should do post-haste. It’s also a valuable reminder that as technology advances, laws do not automatically advance with them, and sometimes that can create severe problems. But hey, at least the fingerprint scanner is all fancy!

AMC Is Developing A 'Walking Dead' Spin-Off For 2015
16 sep 2013 11:35

AMC, which cancelled The Killing last week, is losing Breaking Bad at the end of this month, and Mad Men next year, and still hasn’t found a viable replacement for either series (Low Winter Sun, sure as hell isn’t it), looks to be doing for The Walking Dead what the Saul Goodman spin-off is doing for Breaking Bad, which is to say: If you can’t succeed with new properties, just spin off the old. Indeed, AMC announced today that it is in the early stages of developing a spin-off to The Walking Dead, set for 2015. Details are scarce. Here’s what AMC had to say, according to TVLine. “Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18-49 is literally a no-brainer,” said AMC prez Charlie Collier in a statement. “We look forward to working with Robert, Gale and Dave again as we develop an entirely new story and cast of characters. It’s a big world and we can’t wait to give fans another unforgettable view of the zombie apocalypse.” I wouldn’t call it a “no brainer,” since you’ll be diluting the power of the strongest series on the network, but for financial reasons, I see what they mean. Series creator Robert Kirkman added this: “After 10 years of writing the comic book series and being so close to the debut of our fourth, and in my opinion, best season of the TV series, I couldn’t be more thrilled about getting the chance to create a new corner of The Walking Dead universe. The opportunity to make a show that isn’t tethered by the events of the comic book, and is truly a blank page, has set my creativity racing.” We’ll bring you more details when they’re announced.

Watch Shirtless Fan Pull Beyonce Off Stage

I propose that we, as a culture, decide it’s totally cool to treat pricey pop star live SPECTACULARS as punk shows. No need to sport uncomfortable heels or wear a tie; just come in your finest torn t-shirt for your old friend’s high school cowpunk band and slashed jeans. Crowd surfing and stage diving? Totally acceptable. Hell, even encouraged. Let a shirtless man who pulled Beyoncé off stage during a recent concert show you how it’s done.

Miss America Racist Tweets For Nina Davuluri

Oh, Internet, (you will) never change (which is why Twitter is a terrible bigot den). Last night, 24-year-old Nina Davuluri was crowned Miss America, and one of her first duties is to “visit the recently burned New Jersey boardwalk in Seaside Park.” That’s unfortunately not the story, though, — it’s that Davuluri is an Indian-American and “born in New York with parents from India” means nothing to the: "DERRR MORE LIKE MISS TAXI DRIVER" dolts out there. Here’s but a brief, infuriating smattering of the reception she’s received.

Volvo Uses A Hamster To Drive A Semi
16 sep 2013 11:12

Volvo is no stranger to insane, dangerous stunts involving its trucks. But this stunt, designed to show off the sensitivity of the steering wheel, is crazy even by their standards. Namely, putting a hamster in charge of some poor sucker’s life. Really, Volvo’s engineers say it best. Notice that, in the opening, everybody involved is clearly stone sober, despite this obviously being conceived in a drunken haze. Apparently the Swedish just do stuff like this for fun.

Luc Besson Would Like To Make A 'Fifth Element' Sequel (Plus Cosplay)
16 sep 2013 11:11

There are certain sci-fi movies we can watch every time they're on TV. Among these rewatchable sci-fi flicks is Luc Besson's The Fifth Element (1997). It has everything sci-fi goes great with: the humor, the refusal to take itself too seriously, the realistically incompetent authority figures (some things never change), the cool visuals and wardrobe, or the eclectic cast. Tommy "Tiny" Lister as the President? Yes please. Luc Besson recently gave a long interview about numerous things, like never getting paid for American adaptations of his Nikita, but here's the part of The Playlist's interview we zoned in on:

It’s never a pleasant feeling when you realize you’re being emotionally manipulated by a big business trying to sell you a product, but between Fiona Apple’s “Pure Imagination” Chipotle ad and now Thai communication provider TrueMove H’s three-minute short film/commercial, well, let’s just say some people took Don Draper’s Hershey’s prostitute monologue to heart. Who knew ad people even had hearts?

List Of Miley Cyrus's VMAs FCC Complaints
15 sep 2013 13:51

Us normal people, we complain about things on Twitter, to our friends, and in the comments sections of websites dedicated to Breaking Bad and occasionally other TV shows. We rarely do anything about the thing we’re upset about, because the things we’re upset about rarely matter. Or we’ll move onto something else to bitch about after a day, and the cycle starts a-new. Think about how mad you have to be to actually do something, about the number of steps it takes to go from watching a dumb awards show on MTV to being so shocked and appalled that you file an official complaint with the FCC about the horrors you just saw. Eh, I’d rather GIF it. Lucky for those of us who know which battles are worth fighting for (BRING BACK ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT … wait, they did what?), there are those who live their lives constantly on the lookout for something to be offended by. Many, many, many people were angered by Miley Cyrus’s VMAs performance, and many, many of the many, many, many wrote to the FCC, the list of which the Smoking Gun obtained. Here are some of our favorites.

Dave Chappelle Told An Amazing Story About Kanye West
15 sep 2013 13:47

Two things that I love unconditionally: 1) Stories about eccentric musicians, as told and/or reenacted by Dave Chappelle; and 2) Stories about Kanye West, as told or reenacted by anyone. In the first category, we have the famous Rick James and Prince sketches from Chappelle’s Show. In the second, we have lots, most notably Aziz Ansari’s story about the time he hung out at Kanye’s house and walked in to find him silently bumping along on the couch to his own album. (Posted below.) But today is a great day because now those two things have been welded together by the gods and presented to us as a gift. At a recent stop in Illinois on the much-discussed Oddball Comedy and Curiosity Festival, Chappelle told this story about the time Kanye performed on Chappelle’s Show just as he was starting to blow up, and it is just perfect. Enjoy.

Why Jane Krakowski Deserves An Emmy For 30 Rock's Jenna Maroney
15 sep 2013 13:46

Every once in a while, a person will win a major award that will reflect not just the talent or act that he or she is nominated for, but possibly an entire body of work, as if to say, “You weren’t really great enough this year to deserve winning this, but you’ve been so awesome as a whole that you’re getting it anyway.” Some people believed that was the case when Denzel Washington won an Academy Award for Best Actor for Training Day or when Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King won Best Picture.

If these pictures don’t put a smile on your face, then you’re cold and heartless and clearly don’t like to be in a good mood. And if that’s the case, I have no idea why you’re visiting this website because literally everything on here is supposed to put you in a good mood.

This woman's dorm room from 1898 isn't much different from modern day dorms: Pennants, books, and a chair for studying.

GODZILLA First Look From the New Movie?
11 sep 2013 18:04

This is a licensing Expo poster for the Gareth Edwards directed reboot of Godzilla. A lot of other movie sites seem to believe that this is our first real look at the creature, but I'm not fully convinced. I think they just used that image to slap on a licensing poster, but I don't think it's the real thing. Back at San Diego Comic-Con an up-close image of a face of Godzilla leaked out which you can see here. This looks like a similar design. The thing is... we were told that Godzilla design was not the final design for the actual film. I think this is just another temporary placeholder design to help get people excited, but I guess we'll have to wait and see.

JURASSIC WORLD - Concept Trailer For Cancelled Game
11 sep 2013 18:02

Yesterday it was announced that Jurassic Park 4 would be called Jurassic World. Today there's some kind of pitch trailer for the film that has hit the internet. Some people are saying it's for the movie, others are saying it's for a cancelled video game. Producer Frank Marshall clarified things on his twitter account, saying that this isn't part of the film, but it's still a fun watch! The special effects aren't the best, and it looks like one of those laughable Asylum movies. Here's a note from the guy who posted the video,
