Hey dude, what are you up to this morning? Are you in the mood for some crazy Freaky Friday-style antics involving our favorite late night host and a real live Beatle? That’s a very specific craving, and you should probably look into where that comes from, but I think I’ve got just the video to hit the spot. More
Topic: The Beatles
The profile and even gesture in this photo of a stranger with the Beatles in the 1960s bears an uncanny resemblance to Matt Smith, no? More
Let me start out by saying that I think Matisyahu is a dick. I think this because he kicked my friend in the face and tried to break her camera, and then took to Twitter to say he wasn’t sorry. But this mash-up of his song “One Day” with Jay-Z‘s “Young Forever” and The Beatles‘ “Let It Be” is infuriatingly good. More
Remember when hackers stole Sony‘s PlayStation gamer info last April? Turns out they also got away with 50,000 Michael Jackson songs, some unreleased. More
It may sound a bit hyperbolic, but I believe that (pre)teens today love boy bands like the Jonas Brothers as much as my parents’ generation revered the Beatles, so it’s not so surprising that Nickelodeon is casting its in-house band Big Time Rush as the Beatles’ descendants. The network has decided that the band’s first TV movie, Big Time Movie, will cover several Beatles hits as well as emulate the plots of their wacky adventure movies from the ’60s. More
I suppose it was inevitable: Lady Gaga just finished recording her lines for an appearance she’ll be making on The Simpsons. Though apparently it was a little nerve-wracking for her– singing does not equal voiceovers, apparently– she seems pretty psyched about it; she told EW, “My dad’s probably going to do 80 backflips when the episode comes out.” Which, by the way, will be the spring of 2012 with the episode “Lisa Goes Gaga.” But as you may well know, The Simpsons has a long and storied history of rendering not just actors and comedians, but also musicians in animated form. Though tuest-his is by no means a comprehensive list, here’s a guide to some of the more entertaining choices of musicians who have guest-starred on The Simpsons. More
Your mom’s favorite Beatle, Paul McCartney, just announced that he’ll be marrying for the third time. Unlike previous wife Heather Mills, his current fiancee Nancy Shevell isn’t a public figure. So what do you need to know about her? More
Have any of you ever played any of the numerous LEGO video games there are? Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Batman, Harry Potter… I’m addicted to them all. Though honestly, I can’t really explain that. They’re not even particularly good games, as far as video games go. No, I suspect it’s simpler than that: There is something enormously amusing about running around a little LEGO world as a little LEGO person. Add in the fact that you get to run around a little LEGO Barnett College as a little LEGO Indiana Jones, and well… you get the picture. This might also explain my obsession with LEGO stop-motion animation: There are scores and scores of extremely clever people out there who take common pop culture icons, build them in LEGO, and then go the extra step further and MAKE THEM COME ALIVE. There have been LEGO film scenes, LEGO music videos, even LEGO recreations of classic Nintendo games… the list goes on. Here, we have assembled some of our very favorite LEGO animations for your viewing pleasure, courtesy of YouTube. Happy watching! More

Last week, performer Jaden Smith was rumored dead when a report that he’d had a fatal snowboarding accident in Switzerland hit the Web. The thing is, these death hoaxes have been going on long before young Jaden was born in 1998 — check out our gallery of celebs, well-known and obscure, who are still alive and kickin’ despite all reports.

Remember the Lou Reed/Susan Boyle controversy-that-wasn’t-really-a-controversy? In brief, Susan wasn’t allowed to sing Lou’s song “Perfect Day” on America’s Got Talent and everyone thought it was because Lou wasn’t a fan of the reality show performer. But it turns out Lou maybe didn’t have a problem with Susan tackling his song after all, and he even ended up directing the music video for her cover of the tune.
Well, the aging punker totally never had a leg to stand on. As anyone who has seen HP’s most recent commercial now knows, Lou is totally lame! The ad, which is sort of a general survey of their products, features a version of Lou’s transsexual-and-hustler-themed 1972 classic “Walk on the Wild Side” with insanely uncool lyrics that reference HP’s products. Ridiculous, right? Pretty much. Check out our video gallery of nine other subversive tunes that were misappropriated by the advertising powers that be. More
During this past weekend’s round of SAT tests, students who were already tearing their hair out were faced with a question that, surprisingly, invoked anxiety: Do we benefit from forms of entertainment that show so-called “reality,” or are such shows harmful? According to the New York Daily News, many high schoolers were sure they had flunked the essay portion. (Side note: Remember when you were terrified of blurting out even a scant detail about the SAT essay question, for fear of having your exam disregarded? Guess that’s not as big a threat these days.) Apparently they didn’t consider reality television a universal enough topic to be acceptable for this wide-ranging test of aptitude. More
Last night was the Saturday Night Live episode we’ve all been waiting for: hosted by two very famous people named Paul randomly picked out of a hat! Lets hear it for Paul Rudd and Paul McCartney (from The Beatles) everyone! Here are the best clips of the evening. More
