King Joffrey Statue in Auckland, New Zealand

Categories: Random Stuff

Aloha dudes,

So ... I'm super excited about Game of Thrones right now. We've got less than 24 hours before season 4 premieres, and I've been binging through seasons 1 through 3 to catch up. So excited.

Anyway, I thought if any of you were also fans of the show, you might get a kick out of what's going on in New Zealand. They apparently have a statue up - of King Joffrey. The statue is tied to a rope, which in turn is tied to some sort of pulley system, which is hooked up to twitter.

Basically, every time someone tweets the hash tag #BringDownTheKing, the rope gets a little tighter, until eventually the statue gets toppled. So funnnnnn. [...]

Youtube Announces The Nominees For Best Video (Day 1)

Categories: Random Stuff

LOL



Is anyone on Youtube today? They're doing their April Fool's joke today and its both ridiculous and hilarious. Basically everyone woke up this morning with a notification that all their uploaded videos were automatically nominated for some sort of 'Best Video' award. Now, youtube is live streaming two presenters going through stacks and stacks of cards, "announcing" the nominees - which are basically every single video on youtube.

The gag is doubly hilarious because they're also using it as an excuse to read some of the most ridiculous youtube titles+descriptions available, completely pronouncing any misspellings, grammar/punctuation errors, smileys, run on sentences, or thoughts that simply stop before they're finished. They're reading everything in a totally deadpan/serious tone, which is making it even more enjoyable. [...]

Okay have you guys seen this yet? It's one of these internet crazes where everyone posts videos of themselves doing the same silly thing (sort of like "reactions to two girls one cup").

Anyway, this one is called The Harlem Shake. I'm not sure how old the concept is, but I just discovered it, and it's awesome. Here are my favorite videos so far:

2 Billion Fake Views on Youtube - Perception is Reality


Busted!
-You're busted, bitchhhhh

LOL hey dudes... have you heard about this? According to the Huffington post, Youtube just removed over 2 billion fake views from their system, mostly belonging to Universal Music and Sony/BMG artists... yeah... major labels haha.

Some of you are probably already on board with the fact that everyone embellishes, especially larger companies. Hell even I embellish (of course, duh), but then a lot of times I'm not even trying to and my website does it for me... people will email me like "Oh Mike yay you're such a success" and I'm like "Are we talking about the same me?" haha. I end up having to explain this every once in awhile. [...]

I'm about 5 months late in getting to this story, but Adam Yauch is dead. Adam was also known as MCA, a founding member of the Beastie Boys.

A tumor was discovered in his salivary gland in 2009, and he had been in treatment ever since that time. He was 47 years old.

Here's an official statement released by The Beastie Boys:
It is with great sadness that we confirm that musician, rapper, activist and director Adam 'MCA' Yauch, founding member of Beastie Boys and also of the Milarepa Foundation that produced the Tibetan Freedom Concert benefits, and film production and distribution company Oscilloscope Laboratories, passed away in his native New York City this morning after a near-three-year battle with cancer

Aerosmith to go Independent

Steven Tyler recently made a comment during a recent conference call this Thursday with the press that Aerosmith might go independent for future releases. He is quoted as saying:
if the band stays together, yeah, we'll definitely go that route, something somewhere over there. We've been keeping record companies stocked with millions of shekels for years, been making a lot of people rich -- not that we haven't, but every now and then you get into arguments with labels (and) you think, 'Where is all this money going?' We've definitely thought of putting stuff out. I was very successful last year with a (single) called 'It Feels So Good.' It proves it can happen.

After that, in a separate statement, Joe Perry stated that Columbia had always been supportive in the band.

This is kind of confusing to me, because I was under the impression that after a certain amount of financial success, most or all big bands just automatically went independent. Is that just me? I thought that the biggest reason you go with a major label is big $$$ backing you up... but once you have enough cash to promote yourself, hire all your own 3rd parties, etc, then it would be worth it to split with them simply because they take such a huge cut of your money.

Lady Gaga Pukes on Stage But Keeps Going

Lady Gaga recently threw up, puked, ralphed, right at the opening to her song "I'm on The Edge". Her backup dancer noticed and looked a little concerned, but when Gaga immediately continued with her performance, they both jumped back into action. It was kind of .... very cool and professional.

Now a lot of people are trying to say she got busted for lip syncing because clearly you can hear her voice over the PA while she is throwing up. I have two comments:
  1. Since when is it unacceptable to lip sync during pop music performances? The show/performance as a whole is usually much much more than just their singing or instrumentation
  2. Some of her fans are claiming that the beginning vocals where she sings "I'm on the edge" are actually supposed to be on a track, as they're just background before she gets into her actual singing

Come on now, I know a lot of you are Kelly Clarkson fans. I still like to hum "Since you've been gone" from time to time. Anyway, it seems Kelly Clarkson is releasing a "greatest hits" package on November 19th, 2012, which will contain a number of unnamed tracks, but basically her greatest hits, probably like "Since You've Been Gone", "Miss Independent", and "My Life Would Suck Without You".

She is also including 3 unreleased tracks including her new single "Catch My Breath", which should hit radio and other stuffs Tuesday.

Dudes... can you believe its been 10 years already!? I still feel like yesterday we were watching her on American Idol... and also thinking that Idol didn't make long-lasting stars, yet here we are. Dang. [...]
