I love Buzzfeed. I also hate Buzzfeed. It's a strange dynamic, because on one hand, they post a lot genuinely interesting/amusing content, but on the other hand they post a lot of hot garbage. I suppose any way you look at it, it's something to talk about, and since that's my job, I'd say I love em more than I hate em.
Either way, today they put together a list of "celebrity clap backs" designed to make you feel like a peasant. Basically what it comes down to is some celebrities got called out on Twitter (whether the callouts were warranted or not is up for debate), and everyone on this list responded with something along the lines of "LOL I'M SO RICH AND THAT MAKES ME BETTER THAN YOU!"
Actually in some cases it's even worse than that, because some of them weren't provoked. Like the Kim Kardashian tweet about depositing $53 million in her account. Okay Kim. We get it. You have money.
Anyway if you wanna reinforce the image you have of celebrities being obnoxious, self-absorbed jerks, then this is the list for you. Like I said, Buzzfeed never fails to deliver, whether you love them or hate them.
I'm not gonna act under the pretense that this is real, because of course it's April Fools Day. But this is one of the best April Fools contributions I've ever seen, courtesy of Youtube - SnoopaVision.
They're offering a number of videos you can view in the beta version of SnoopaVision, and this one is one of my favorites - the 360 SnoopaVision version of the Double Rainbow song (to enable SnoopaVision, mouse over the bottom of the video and click the icon of Snoop's head):
Has your Instagram feed been flooded with annoying posts from people whining about turning on notifications so you don't miss when they post? Well as it turns out, everyone can just chill the heck out. Yes, Instagram is gonna be updating their feed's algorithm to more resemble Facebook's "Top Stories" mode, but that doesn't mean your posts will be gone from the feed and the update IS NOT LAUNCHING THIS WEEK.
Oh also this post wouldn't be complete if I didn't shamelessly plug my own Instagram page. You can follow me @bill_tng. I don't care if you turn notifications on or not. Do you.
Have you seen the new trailer for Captain America: Civil War that was just released today? If not, stop everything you're doing and watch it RIGHT NOW. I wasn't sold on this movie until today, and now I can barely contain my excitement, mostly due to a familiar face that hasn't swung by in a while...
It feels like I've been doing a lot of High School Musical posts recently. In my defense, there's been a decent amount of High School Musical news. For instance, over the weekend at a bookstore in Florida I bought some High School Musical trading cards because the packs were two for a dollar, and how can you pass that up?
No, that's not the news. The real news, as you may have derived from the title, is that High School Musical 4 is FINALLY HAPPENING! Disney announced today there is an upcoming casting call for another installment in the franchise featuring a new class of East High Wildcats and their cross-town rivals, the West High Knights. It is kind of disappointing that it won't be the same group as the originals, but really, who wants to watch Troy Bolton paying his student loans and doing his taxes?
Yesterday, Britney Spears posted this picture on her Instagram.

But there's something wrong with this picture. Can you figure out what it is?
I'll give you a second.
What's that? You say that this picture is actually the art from a Magic: The Gathering card, Temple of Mystery? That is CORRECT!
Can't really blame her, it is some nice art. And as much as I'd like to think she's a closeted nerd and likes to sling spells backstage before her shows (and maybe wants Prophet of Kruphix unbanned in EDH), this was more than likely just an honest mistake.
