    They've found a way to cool off in NYC.  Portable swimming pools made out of a dumpster.  They're unused dumpsters...but still, a little strange.  I love that they're lining them up on Park Ave.  Kinda brings all those fancy pants down to street level a bit.

    Would you swim in a dumpster?  What else could we make pools out of? 

  • U2 rehearses new song

    Posted by Otis Day

    The internet has footage of U2 rehearsing a new song during their 360 Tour rehearsals.

    The video was caught by fans who were camped out near the gates of the Stadio Olimpico di Torino in Italy.

    The group is rehearsing there since they have a show in Italy on Friday. It will be the first show for the band since Bono had back surgery.

  • Worlds Longest Trick Shot?

    So it took them an Hour and a Half to get this shot.  How annoying to have the get the balls back up everytime after you miss.  Agggh.....I'd have tried twice then given up.


  • Best Interview ever

    Posted by Otis Day

    This story turns into maybe the greatest actuality of all time in a TV newscast.  I love it because it wasn't live...so the producers must have known how funny it is.  And I must say...I don't think the story is funny at all.  So don't send me a lot of hate mail about how I'm a terrible person for laughing at this poor girl.  I'm not laughing at her or the story at all.  I'm laughing at the dude in the bandana being interviewed.  He's maybe the best ever.

  • Do NOT cut me off

    Posted by Otis Day

    I don't know what they're saying...but I'm pretty sure I get the gist of what HE's saying.  "LET ME FINISH MY TOSS TO YOU BEFORE YOU START SPEAKING!!!!"  Followed by some %$#@!^&***$$$!!!!!! I'm sure.

  • Billy Corgan slips onstage

    Billy Corgan from the Smashing Pumpkins slipped onstage and fell back into the drum riser.  The audio is loud, and the video isn't great....but you can clearly see him falling.

    He later Tweeted: "For those that saw me fall during Bullet, that wasn't a stage move or clumsiness, that was me blacking out and wiping out. I have no memory of falling against the drum riser and my guitar cabinet, but I can tell you I've got quite a good bruise and am moving slow."

  • Whoopi Goldberg on drugs

    Whoopi Goldberg

    Whoopi showed up messed up on the View Monday morning.  She explained that to fly they have to drug her....and those drugs had NOT worn off when taping started.  Finally Whoopi is funny.

    Its rare I laugh at a preview...but I did a couple times in this one. 

  • One Eskimo, "Kandi"

    Posted by Otis Day

    I can't get this song out of  my head(not that I want to...but still.)  It's kinda dark, seductive, and catchy.  And the guitar is on a constant loop in my brain.  Name the sample in it and win the satisfaction of knowing the song being sampled without having to google it.
