We're now less than 8 months away from Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens, and the second official teaser hit the internet today. The last line of this trailer... so many nerd feels, man.
Luke, Han, and Chewie are back. brb, geeking out for the rest of the night.
I was a HUGE fan of Guitar Hero back in its heyday (and, if I might add, I was the first of my friends to be able to beat Guitar Hero 2 on Expert back when it first came out in 2006 before everyone and their grandmother was good at Guitar Hero). The games that came out after Guitar Hero 3 were a bit lackluster, and eventually the series died with little fanfare after the sixth game was released in 2010.
And now, out of nowhere, this hits the internet:
As a longtime fan of the franchise, this is really exciting. But the premise seems kind of gimmicky (playing in front of real crowds? How does that work? Why would any real person who's not a personal friend want to watch me playing my plastic guitar?), and I'm not sold on the new interface. Two rows of 3 fret buttons instead of one row of 5? We're looking at a completely different mechanical style of play here. In essence, this is a new game with the Guitar Hero name slapped onto it. But as much as I hate change, for all I know it could be great fun, so I guess we'll find out in the fall when it comes out.
Remember a couple years ago when this video of some of Carly Rae Jepsen's famous friends lip syncing "Call Me Maybe" hit the internet and got a bajillion views before the song was even a hit? Well it seems like they're at it again, with a slightly different crew this time around, lip syncing to Carly Rae's new song "I Really Like You."
I caught Justin Bieber, some other kid who looks like young Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande (and I think her brother Frankie?), I believe I saw Kendall Jenner, and I think even Lance Bass is in there briefly a few times. I'm sure there are some other people I didn't catch or recognize, but we'll see if this video takes off like the previous one.
Not gonna lie, the internet is pretty boring today, so I figured I'd share this video I found over the weekend. It was either this or a picture of Chrissy Teigen's stretch marks that's a big deal for some reason, and as much as I'd like to talk about that, I don't think I could get away with it. So enjoy this video of these folks raving to the Thomas the Tank Engine song.
I don't know if this is the actual song the people in this video were dancing to or if it's just overdubbed. If it was the Thomas the Tank Engine song and they were just cutting loose to it, then props to them. If not, it still made me chuckle, so props to whoever put it together. Of course, this isn't the first time someone has used this song to great comedic effect. Check this out, especially if you're a fan of Turn Down For What.

I enjoy musical birthday cards. When I was a senior in college, my sister got me a High School Musical card that sang "Breaking Free" (I've always been a big HSM fan), and just a couple years ago my roommate got me both a singing hamburger AND a singing pair of underwear. They're hilarious. But I wouldn't much care for THIS musical birthday card.

Once the recipient presses the play button, the "Happy Birthday" song will begin playing... and never stop. If you try to press the button again to turn the music off like you would with a normal singing card, instead it will only make the music louder. The only way to shut the music off is to run the battery out (which will take at least 3 hours) or physically destroy the device that plays the music... which probably sounds easier than it is, considering it doesn't even stop when you submerge it in water multiple times.
This brilliantly troll project was posed on Kickstarter by a couple guys who hate musical birthday cards. They've already made more than 6 times their original $7500 goal, but if you want to get in on the action, check out their page and pick up a card that will sing eternally for your friend or loved one. They're expected to ship in July.
