The ‘Despacito’ heavy metal cover you didn’t know you needed

TwitterFacebook

Prepare your ears for the heavy metal-reggaeton-pop fusion you never thought would exist.

“Despacito” is the hottest song of the summer, and now it’s got its own heavy metal cover you can bang your head to. 

Musician Leo Moracchioli of Leap Frog Studios in Norway put the catchy song together as a one-man band. In the video’s description, he wrote that he played every instrument and recorded, mixed, mastered, shot, and edited the music and video.

It kind of seems a little contradictory to sing a song titled “Slowly” to raging rock music… but, hey, it’s still pretty cool. Read more…

Baby destined for an HGTV career absolutely loves shopping for paint

TwitterFacebook

Try to come up with a time when you were ever impressed at a hardware store, because this baby has you beat.

Your excitement was probably something normal like finding what you needed on the first try, or the tool you were looking for was on sale.

But if you’re a young child like little Brock, there are more wonders at the hardware store than you could ever imagine. Take those colorful looking paint swatches, for instance.

In a video captured by Anita Mander on YouTube, Brock is totally impressed by every color. Fuchsia? Wow, everybody take a look at this. Sunny D Orange? Who knew they could even make such a color? Read more…

Why Sansa Stark Had Every Right to Speak Up Against Jon Snow

Sansa Stark isn’t in my top three favorite Game of Thrones characters. Many would agree that she didn’t start out as a likable character in earlier seasons. She was a naive brat who sided with the wrong people. Her character development was a slow progress, but progress nonetheless. Again, this is coming from someone who hasn’t warmed […]

You know you want to see an airbag explode out of a microwave… in slow motion

TwitterFacebook

The inventor of the industrious, modern microwave probably didn’t have heating up airbags in mind when they were thinking about uses for it, yet here we are.

The Slow Mo Guys are throwing back to those old-school YouTube videos where people would throw stuff in microwaves just to see what would happen. But now, we get to see what happens in complete slow motion. 

Oh, and you might wanna turn down the volume during the explosion because it’s gonna be one loud pop. Read more…

R. Kelly Is Allegedly Holding Women Against Their Will in a ‘Sex Cult’

I always thought R. Kelly was a sketchy man when I heard about him having sex with a minor back in 2002. Not to mention that he also peed in her mouth. (Ugh.) While he was never jailed for his crimes, it doesn’t mean he’s stopped his predatory ways. Last night, reports found that R. […]

Social Media Unites in Sharing Public Transportation Horror Stories

Today in “The Government Telling a Narrative Different than the Truth,” they claimed they need to regulate ride-sharing services so they can be as safe as other forms of public transportation such as taxis, buses, and jeepneys. It is also a move to regulate private cars in the metro to control traffic. Right. We need […]

A cycle trail around the craftmakers of Dartmoor

A woodturner, upholsterer and jeweller are among the Devon artisans to visit on a new cycle trail. Our writer leaves with a few handmade items of her own

When I was about 10, I went on a family holiday to the Netherlands with an outfit called Cycling for Softies. We rode up what felt like the country’s steepest hill, far exceeded the number of miles expected and at one point crossed the border into Germany. In short, there was nothing “soft” about it.

This, it appears, is a common feature of cycling trips. And thank goodness – because if you had a better idea beforehand of how strenuous a journey you were about to undertake, you might never go – and you’d miss out on something brilliant.

The first pictures of Miranda Kerr and Evan Spiegel’s wedding are awfully dreamy

TwitterFacebook

OK, you might not be the type to find yourself dreaming about weddings.

Yet there’s something to certainly aspire to in the case of model Miranda Kerr and Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel, whose photos from their May wedding were released by Vogue magazine.

Much of the focus was on Kerr’s Dior Haute Couture dress, channelling a classical Hollywood charm; it was inspired by the dress Grace Kelly wore when she married Prince Rainier of Monaco in 1956.

And yeah, it’s pretty dreamy.

Trump hires a man with the most magnificent mustache to defend him against Russia accusations

TwitterFacebook

I dare say, I won’t stand for all of you besmirching my client, Mr. Trump.

To get to him, you’ll have to get through me and my magnificent mustache. My name is Ty Cobb and winning runs in my veins. I’m a high-powered lawyer who represented people in the Clinton administration, and I’m a distant relative of The Georgia Peach himself, Ty Cobb, the baseball player. 

It’s unconscionable that you would accuse my client, Donald J. Trump, and his associates of inappropriate contact with the Russians just because of evidence. Why, I’d challenge you to a duel, but I’m enjoying a tasty mint julep on a riverboat. Read more…

TwitterFacebook

Forget everything you thought you knew about competitive sports because it’s 2017, and the only competition that matters right now is handshakes. And Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron may have just taken the grand prize for the most awkward handshake ever.

Trump and Macron spent the day together on Friday as the two world leaders celebrated Bastille Day. And spending the day together means one thing: the two were back at it again with their jaw-droppingly unnatural handshakes

While we’ve seen the two exchange truly uncomfortable handshakes time and time again, this new handshake just might be the longest handshake in the history of handshakes. Read more…
