So it all started with a simple Facebook post by UofL Social Media professor, Karen Freberg.... which turned into hundreds of students, faculty, staff and friends all participating in a remake of Pharrell's "Happy" video.
Ke$ha is back and out of rehab after completing a two month stint for an eating disorder.
And she's changed her name.... at least on Twitter. She changed her Twitter name from "@keshasuxx" to her real name "@KeshaRose," updated her bio to say "I'm a rainbow," and switched her display photo, header, and background.
Happy to be back! Feeling healthy & working on tons of new music🐱I can't thank my fans enough for all the love & support u have given me❤️️
Meet nine-year-old Cruz Colvin… a 3rd grader at St. Margaret Mary. He was adopted by John and Aimee Colvin at 6-months old from Guatemala, and was diagnosed just before Christmas with a rare blood disease (Aplastic Anemia). His best chance for a cure is a bone marrow transplant. Unfortunately, he has an uncommon HLA Typing (DNA) due to a gene found within the Hispanic population, and that makes it especially difficult to find a match.
Donors and patients who share the same ancestry are most likely to match. Be a part of CRUZade! A simple cheek swab is all that is needed to determine if someone is a match for someone like Cruz, in need of a life-saving transplant.
A fundraiser for CRUZade is going on this Monday, March 10 at Goose Creek Diner, 2923 Goose Creek Road. From 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., 25 percent of all sales will go to this cause.
See if you're a match at bone marrow drives set for Sunday, March 23, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Cruz' church, 7813 Shelbyville Road, and on Sunday, April 13, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at The Catholic Church of the Annunciation, 105 Main Street, Shelbyville, KY,
When the Louisville music community heard about thousands of dollars stolen from a 3-year-old with Leukemia, they stepped up in a big way. WDRB reports there's a benefit planned for Addie Roberts at Jim Porter's Good Time Emporium. On St. Patrick's Day, families can come between 6 and 9:30 p.m. There is a minimum donation of $10 per person to get in, but children five and under are free. Kyle Nunn, a former family friend, is now behind bars at Metro Corrections accused of stealing $9,000 from her charity, Addie's Army, by pretending to set up a Jason Aldean concert for her. Fifteen bands initially signed up to play, now there are 26. Mom's Music and Guitar Center children's bands are also expected to perform. "Jason Aldean's management has contacted us and said they'd like to provide merchandise, signed merchandise, to provide for the benefit that should accumulate a large amount of money."
A good Samaritan handed this homeless man a lottery ticket and then drove him to a convenience store to cash it in. The ticket wasn't a winner… but the homeless man didn't know that because he had made arrangements with the store clerk to give the homeless man $1,000.
Ya gotta hand it to the reporters who have to go out and report on the crappy conditions outside... cut to Steve Keeley of WTXF-TV in Philadelphia who was blasted with a wall of snow from a plow while reporting from the side of the road in Woodstown, N.J.

Well done Jimmy Kimmel. Jimmy is helping Max who has cancer raise money for awareness for "The Max Love Project" which helps kids fight cancer - all set up by Max's classmates to honor their classmate (Max) who is battling cancer himself.

About a year ago, Pepsi MAX decided to have NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon disguise himself as a customer and shoot a video with him taking a used-car salesman on a high-speed joyride in a Camaro. See that video HERE.
New mission: do it again.
The target was Travis Okulski, Jalopnik's deputy editor who clowned on him for the 1st video, and this time Jeff Gordon was disguised as a taxi driver.
She is a 26 year old attorney in Atlanta and is currently in the middle of a murder trial in Atlanta and she has mysteriously just taken a leave of absence, and no one in the Fulton County D.A.'s Office will say why.... now we know. .
Writer Jon Negroni made all sorts of noise with his Cracked.com theory about how all the Pixar movies are connected. His new theory, and it seems pretty solid... is that toy owner Andy's mom is also Emily, the original owner of cowgirl Jessie.
Wait, wait, wait!!
Remember in "Toy Story 2," when sheriff Woody meets Jessie, who in the heartbreaking song "When She Loved Me," tells of being abandoned by Emily, who grew up and shifted her interests from horses and dolls to nail polish and boys??
I know crazy right???
He goes on to explain, "Here’s what we know for sure; We don’t know the first name of Andy’s mom. We don’t know Emily’s last name. We know that Andy’s hat and Emily’s hat are the same. We know that Emily is old enough to be Andy’s mom. We definitely know that Pixar is perfectly capable of sneaking this in without being overt about it."
Last week we saw a map of the United States based on the best selling artist from that state (SEE HERE).
Well, this guy named Paul Lamere decided to break it down even further. Paul has correlated listening data among music service users who put their zip code address in their profiles with the relative number of streams of a given artist. All those big fancy words mean he was able to create a map showing each which artist enjoys the most support in each state.
So Hoosiers are loving (streaming) Blake Shelton, while in Ohio it's Florida Georgia Line, and Tennesse it's Juicy J.
Kind of a surprise to me, but Kentucky is all about some Fall Out Boy.
By the way, I like where your head is at Colorado!
She missed out on The Voice last year and went back for the Season 6 open call saying, "I made it through that then, I had to go back for a couple more auditions and ended up at the Blind Audition somehow and they really liked me for some reason."
By the way, Season 6 opened with an amazing medley from the four judges!
Two cellists (in the group 2Cellos) Luka Šulić and Stjepan Hauser decide to show how AWESOME playing a cello can be.... by covering "Thunderstruck" by AC/DC!!!
Daaaaaaaaaayum!!! More from Huff Post HERE
Here's the OG by AC/DC....
They also covered GnR "Welcome to the Jungle".... so awesome.
(UPDATE PIC BELOW)
This guy? He is Tee Salinas and has been North Oldham's basketball manager since he was in the 6th grade. Tee has Down syndrome and to honor the team's #1 fan, tonight (2/21/14) instead of cheering on the team from the manager's chair, he'll be on the court wearing #23!
Tee plays on a Special Olympics basketball team, likes to hit 3-pointers, and is no stranger to the court. The hashtag #GetTeeOnSportsCenter was created by students to catch the attention of a national audience. Let's do it! Let's "get Tee on Sports Center!!"
STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING RIGHT NOW!! If you love delicious, cold, crisp milk on your cereal, you need to continue reading. It has emerged that slow jams can stimulate milk production in cows. Yes.... slow jams.
A report in Modern Farmer shows that a study by the University of Leicester which found that slow music can mitigate stress in cows and increase the amount of milk they produce by 3%.
So here's to cows "getting their groove on" and producing that M-I-L-K!
Can you believe Pharrell Williams actually had to answer the question.... "are you a vampire?" lol
Pharrell Williams is not a Vampire, thanks for asking. Let's face it, Pharrell Williams does not look 40. And in a recent interview with TimeOut magazine, he was asked point blank if he is indeed a vampire. "No I am not. I’m willing to go on record as saying that I don’t drink people’s blood. How do I stay so young-looking for a 40-year-old? I wash my face," he said.
Rob Lowe is all like.... "dude been a vampire for yeeeeeeeeeeearz!" haha
Elijah Wood is all like, "look into my beautiful blue vampire eyes!"
So this guy just arrived to pick up his daughter from school. He is waiting for his daughter when he just so happens to notice a large patch of ice conveniently nestled right on the path kids take as they leave the school.
What's a dad to do??
Well he sits in his warm car and records these kids busting their butt on the icy sidewalk for FIVE MINUTES!!!! Hahahaha
It's a hip-hop version with Buck 22... complete with Larry King, Aliens, and an Eastern Kentucky reference. Here's the original....
By the way, his daughter Miley will be at the Yum! Center April 19th.
At what age SHOULD you be married by? Good thing there's an app that analyzes your Facebook feed to see exactly when your friends are tying the knot and when it might be time for you to take the plunge.
This application measures the median age of your married friends, meaning the person for whom half your married friends are younger and half are older. Since you are probably friends with a lot of people close to your age, this figure will theoretically identify whether you have passed the point where many of your friends start tying the knot.
Yes….Zombie Beavers. Arguably the most important film that debuted at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival is Zombeavers, a campy horror-comedy about a group of hot and horny teens that heads to a cabin in the woods, only to have their vacation cut short by undead beavers. Supposedly getting released this year. Sharnado...you've met your match.
WARNING: TOTALLY AND UTTERLY NOT SAFE FOR WORK AT ALL:
There's some great stuff coming out of the Sochi Winter Olympics like....
Olympic Russian snowboarder Alexey Sobolev put his phone number on his helmet... and received an avalanche of texts — more than 2,000, including some nude pictures, that reportedly crashed his iPhone. Call Alexey at 001-7-925-022-2285 and he'll answer.
The Skiathlon Announcer was KILLING IT!! He was calling the race like the Kentucky Derby! I love it...
Remember bobsledder Johnny Quinn? He was the guy who got trapped in his hotel bathroom...
Hottest guys at Sochi? Got 'em...click the pic for a FABULOUS slide show...
And finally I want to introduce you to Kate Hansen.
Kate Hansen is a member of the United States Women's Luge team and was REALLY getting into her music before the Luge Singles on Day 3 of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. (Photo by Alexander Hassenstein/Getty Images)
If there's one person you DON'T want to upset.... it's Samuel L Jackson.
While doing press for "Robo-Cop" this news anchor mistakes Samuel L. Jackson for Laurence Fishburne. It all started when the anchor began the interview by saying: "Did you get a lot of reaction to that Super Bowl commercial?" Jackson replied, "WHAT Super Bowl commercial?
Done. At this point I just straight hang up on him... I'm done.
Watch the awkward interview here:
Realizing who he was mistaken for, Samuel L Jackson continues, "I’m not Laurence Fishburne. We don’t all look alike! There’s more than one black guy doing commercials. I’m the ‘What’s in your wallet?’ black guy. He’s the car black guy. Morgan Freeman is the other credit card black guy. You only hear his voice though, so you probably won’t confuse him with Laurence Fishburne. I’ve actually never done a McDonald’s or Kentucky Fried Chicken commercial. I know that’s surprising."
I guess you could say American figure skater Ashley Wagner was expecting a better score than that on her short program in ladies team competition. For the record, she received a score of 63.10, putting her in 4th place at the time behind Mao Asada... which wouldn't be too bad if it weren't for the fact that Mao fell during her routine!
I get it... you're on a high school field trip to the city. It's "lights out" and you're bored... what do you do? Well if you're the Kentucky State Choir you all gather and bust out some serious patriotism!
Each year the Kentucky State Choir conference gets together at the Louisville Hyatt downtown. It's become tradition that each night at 11 everyone comes out to the balconies of the 18 story hotel and sing the National Anthem.
The Canadian Institute of Diversity and Inclusion, an equality rights organization, launched a LGBT PSA just in time for the Olympics, claiming the games have “always been a little gay.”
They made this video to highlight the stories about the anti-gay sentiment in Russia leading up to the Sochi Games...
You see, June has quite a history with grocery stores and crashes. First off, Elizabethtown police said June decided to ram her car right into the front entrance of a busy Kroger store, injuring two people; THANKFULLY not seriously.
In fact, officers said June bought her 2006 four door Lincoln earlier in the day for the SOUL PURPOSE of crashing it into the store. But that's not the 1st time she's done this.
(wait, did Kroger sleep with her boyfriend or something??)
Administrators at Stephens Elementary School in Boone County set their “school’s closed” message to Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”…
Saying: “We like to have fun at our school. So, after several school closings due to snow and cold, we recorded this call to parents to see if we could make them laugh. I think we succeeded. Boone County Schools in Kentucky is one of the nation's finest. And, our awesome parents deserve this chuckle. By the way, if this video can gain us some exposure, AND you know of someone willing to help us out with some cash for technology, we DESPERATELY need it. Ellen? Rosie? Oprah? Jimmy Kimmel? We love our jobs - I hope you can tell!”
As if we need more reasons to love Anna Kendrick, Anna Kendrick stars in one of the funniest pre-released Super Bowl commercials yet. Well, technically it can't even been considered a Super Bowl commercial.
I don't even know where to begin. To put it bluntly... there's a house in Gary, IN that is possessed by over 200 demons. There are witnesses.
Let's start, Latoya Ammons claims she watched in horror as her demon-possessed 9-year-old son walked backwards up a wall and ceiling. Ok good start... Now, her claims would be easy to dismiss if a child services case worker and a nurse weren’t reportedly there to WITNESS IT ALL!!!
Actually Latoya claims all three of her children showed signs of being possessed, including “evil” smiles and strangely deep voices. Oh and she has witnessed her 12-year-old daughter levitating. Ahhhhhhh!!!! In March 2012, Ammons claims she rushed to check on her 12-year-old daughter after hearing her screams. When she entered the bedroom, she says she witnessed her daughter LEVITATING ABOVE HER BED unconscious. The family and some of the guests they were hosting prayed over the girl until she returned back to the bed. The girl reportedly didn’t remember anything about it.
The torment reportedly continued and the family wasn’t in a position financially to flee the home. So the family contacted churches and clairvoyants for help, but they received little relief. The clairvoyants allegedly told the family their house was haunted by more than 200 demons.
The story apparently became so believable that officers with the police department said they were too scared to stay at the house and some city officials wouldn’t even step foot on the property.
100% absolutely and completely done.... just done.
(by the way.... notice the figure in the window in the picture above?)
An eight-month-old cancer patient is fighting for her life, and a community is rallying behind her. Hadley Mercer was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia when she was six-months-old. She is now at Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville undergoing her second round of chemotherapy.
Thousands walked through the door of Holy Trinity in Louisville Sunday to offer a cheek swap and see if they were a match…so many that they ran out of kits in less than three hours! A line formed out the door for people wanting to join the registry and have a kit mailed to them so they could still participate. It was the largest bone marrow donor drive in Kentucky history.
If you would like to get a home test kit, visit www.bethematch.org and use the promo code HADLEYKY at check out.
So you remember the story a little more than a year ago about a Hong Kong billionaire that was offering up $65 million dollars to the guy that can seduce and marry his lesbian daughter? Wellll….Cecil Chao got 20,000 guys wanting to give it a shot…but he was unimpressed. So now, Cecil is upping it to $130 million!!! He says if a man could woo his daughter he "will give them a moderately deluxe life." He added, "I would not force her to marry a man. But obviously I would, from my point of view, prefer her to be married and to have grandchildren.” His daughter, Gigi, says, “I don’t think my dad’s offering of any amount of money would be able to attract a man I would find attractive… I would be happy to befriend any man willing to donate huge amounts of money to my charity Faith in Love, provided they don't mind that I already have a wife. Third and lastly, thank you Daddy, I love you too.”
Of course you knew that, but here's the latest reason as to why. His movie "Ride Along" opened up #1 at the boxoffice AND there was an internet campaign to reenact the lyrics to "Today Was a Good Day"... for charity. Including getting Cube to do a ride along in the Goodyear blimp with the words "Ice Cube's a Pimp" on the display.
In the song, "Ice Cube chronicles 24 hours of peace and happiness on the otherwise rough and dangerous streets of South Central Los Angeles."
After months of petitioning and campaigning...it happened.
Doris Deahardie had a 100th birthday party that might be considered wild for a woman 1/4 her age. At first, she wanted to do a helicopter ride…but changed her mind when pilots wouldn’t strip for her. Plan B? Get a hunky male stripper who will bare. It. All.
The party took place at a pub in Retford, Great Britain, and Deahardie chose the man herself and even came prepared with her OWN OIL to lube up her entertainment!!! Yeah…and she ended up with whipped cream on her face while LMFAO's 'Sexy And You Know It' played in the packed venue. Giggity.
Meet Nick....he’s a senior at Owensboro Catholic High School and wants to make his last prom epic. He’s seen a couple of Jennifer Lawrence's movies, The Hunger Games and American Hustle, so he figured he’d upload a video of him on Youtube asking her to the big dance.
He says, "I feel like she is really down to earth as an actress. Of all the actors in Hollywood, I feel like she would be the one to maybe reply so why not."
Hang on ladies... he's going to wait until he hears back from J Law before he comes up with any back-up plans for prom night.
Does Conan O’Brien have an illegitimate son? A guy named Greg, who strongly resembles Conan O'Brien, made a satirical(?) video claiming that Conan is his real father. Apparently claiming that his mom hooked up with him 30 years ago when she worked in 30 Rock.
Then she blames her "shaky" acceptance speech on "lack of alcohol".... bahahaha
When asked how she was going to celebrate the win, in pure JLaw style said, “I need to catch up on my drinking, I think that’s why I was so manic. Normally I have, like, a glass of wine. Um, that’s not a good answer…”
Here's a list of all the AWARDS she has snagged throughout her CAREER so far.
Love ya girl!
Police found 18 year old Christopher Scheller was hiding some interesting things when he crashed his car into a tree while allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol.
After being taken to a nearby hospital, doctors X-rayed him and found "an abnormality" inside his rectum, according to the police report. Yea.... his rectum (read: butt, pooper, booty, buttocks, tush). The "unusual find" consisted of four bracelets, four necklaces, 11 ladies rings, a socket wrench, and a bag of synthetic marijuana for good measure.
Meat.... er Meet Molly Schuyler. She weighs in at 120 pounds, but last Friday she set a world record by finishing an entire 72 oz. steak as big as her whole head in under three minutes.
Molly delicately wipes her mouth with a cloth napkin then explains, "(It's) an unexplained phenomenon; I was just born that way," she told KPTV. "I started doing this about a year ago, and I guess it's like a stupid human trick."
Bailey is a teenager from Salem, IN who has a severe muscle disorder called Duchenne's Muscular Dystrophy and he has dream of making it on Sportscenter... the hashtag #GetBaileyOnSportsCenter and #GetBaileyToSportsCenter has gone viral on Twitter. Ben and Kelly spoke with his mom Lana about Bailey.
If you're on Twitter, why not help this boy reach his dream?
Throwing a cup of boiling water into the freezing air has been done… but peeing into a wind chill factor of -50° — that takes a real “man.” Dakota Laden claims to be “that guy,” and on one of those crisp Minnesota nights a couple days ago, he allegedly did just that.
Of course, this being the Internet, people are saying he is using a squirt bottle and not his own "equipment" and of course a stern warning is in order. (some NSFW language).
Woo hoo! Ladies...Bachelor season is upon us! So here are my thoughts after night one...
*My early fave is Nurse Nikki...she's cute and seems normal and genuine, plus she's a pediatric nurse. Great with kids and could easily do that in Miami. 'Cause Juan isn't leaving Miami...his lady will have to move to be in his life.
*Prosecutor Andi is cute...seems like she's got a good personality, but whether she could do her job in Miami easily, not sure.
*Single mom Renee is probably a good fit...she has an 8-year-old son.
*Nanny Alli might be a dark horse...again, great with kids. This will be a key factor in deciding.
*Opera singer Sharleen incites early rage in me for how she handled the whole first impression rose. Seriously?? She looked like she was going to laugh at him and leave. Kinda wished she would have.
I CAN'T WAIT to find out who is sobbing near the toilet saying "I WISH JUAN PABLO WOULD DIE!!" Safe to say she won't be getting the rose that night....
Now if you wanna get serious...here is a link to setting up your own Bachelor Fantasy League. If we're being totally legit, we should have done this before episode 1, but whatev. BTW...I'm pretty sure there is recorded audio of me saying before it was officially announced that Juan Pablo was the Bachelor. 8 points for me.
Jay Z was in Greensboro, N.C., on Sunday night for his "Magna Carter Worldwide Tour," when a 12-year-old boy caught his attention when he saw he was holding up a sign that read, "Can I rap for you?" OK....
Haha AWESOME!!! Then he asked if he could meet Jay backstage... of course he said "yes."
A grandmother in Memphis was jailed after officials say she called 911 for "police assistance in getting a beer."
Grandma Rosie (who is 68), said that the allegations are false. "I have lived to be 68 years old and I never dialed no police to bring me beer," she said. Nevertheless, she was charged with domestic assault and making a non-emergency 911 call. Ok then....
Imagine planning for months the perfect proposal.... you found the perfect woman, you found the perfect ring, and you're going to do it at Magic Kingdom in front of Cinderella's Castle... it'll be perfect.
Bahahhahahahhahahahahahahahahahaha!!! I just can't!
This guy's face is priceless.... of course the Internet has dubbed him "In The Way Guy" and the memes have already begun.
This lady in Michigan found a 4-foot-long snake living in... her couch! Done. Oh and it had been there for about TWO months!!
Holly Wright says, "Sometimes my dog would sleep there, I would sit and check email, have a cup of coffee. I read a couple novels on this couch."
She got the couch off the street for free; she checked it for damage, odor, and stains and even cleaned it, but didn't check it for SNAKES!! Over the weekend it came out and she removed it with a coat hanger. Ok then....
Her name is Rhema Marvanne. She recorded this solo rendition of "O Holy Night" at just 7 years old and takes inspiration from her mother Wendi, who died from ovarian cancer in 2008, one year before she recorded this song.
The hashtag #firstworldproblems has been a thing (joke) on Twitter for a while now, and after watching this video of people from 3rd World countries read the tweets, makes me feel like a jerk for ever having used it myself....
Several London mall Santas are using polygraph machines on children to see if they have been naughty or nice. Katie Tucker, the marketing manager for Brent Cross malls, says, "We know that Christmas is a busy time of year for Santa and parents, so we decided to lend both a hand and check if children had really been naughty or nice, to make sure no one is telling fibs. The children of Brent Cross proved to be extremely honest, and we look forward to testing the kids of Croydon and Southampton to see how they fare!"
A guy who was visiting his girlfriend's parents got thrown into a little backyard project to pass the time... with the help of his girlfriend and her family, he build the most amazing thing in their Edmonton backyard.
Here's the beginning...
What could they be building??
The girlfriend's mom chimed in, “I wanted to keep him occupied, not with my daughter necessarily. I wanted to keep him busy with something else,I didn’t want Daniel to just be twiddling his thumbs while he’s here in Canada so I thought, this needs to be something that’s got some meat to it.”
They built a freaking IGLOO out of ice made from frozen milk cartons!!
Damn. Better get started if you want to finish before January! You can see the entire journey in pictures HERE

Andrew Hale does internet pranks and odd video experiments. I wouldn't really call his latest one a prank... it's more holiday-themed. He secretly paid for people's groceries right before they checked out, then filmed their reactions!
Super cool. He doesn't reveal that it was him, and it's neat seeing people become emotional when they get the news.
We received this e-mail over the weekend.... any advice for "Jamie?"
Hey Ben & Kelly!
I have a problem that I would love your help with. I am a 23-year-old single girl, and I realized that EVERY SINGLE PERSON I have dated I met while I was drunk. I just graduated from U of L and got a full time job, so I want to cut way down on the drinking, and perhaps find someone to settle down with. However, I have no idea how to meet guys outside of bars or parties. It doesn't help that I am extremely shy and have trouble starting conversations with strangers. Online dating does not appeal to me at all, either. I attached a picture of myself so you can see what I look like. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
We already know that the spiders from Mars are real -- but has the NASA rover Curiosity picked up real evidence of extraterrestrial life on the Red Planet? Conspiracy theorists think so. We think Mr. Alien looks a lot like Bigfoot. So if we're right...that's TWO theories proven. BAM! Mind=blown. Oh...and there are alien rats too...
Toronto's Mayor Rob Ford has gone off the deep end. He swears in front of kids HERE, then Toronto City Council decided to strip him of many of his powers after a heated debate where he KNOCKED OVER a woman councilor... full on WWE style.
In all honesty, it kinda looks like he bumped into her and not that he was trying to knock her down. If he was trying a WWE move, it was kind of weaksauce. Anyhow, the Mayor now effectively has no legislative power.
Oh and you KNEW the Jay-Z "Tom Ford"/ Rob Ford remix was coming right?
By the way, does he remind anyone of Chris Farley?
Read all about the "BATKID's" day HERE. They even made newspapers for him!
This is so cool....
Meet Miles, he's a 5-year-old boy with leukemia and has a wish: He wants to be Batman. So the Make-a-Wish Foundation asked for help from San Francisco residents, and more than 10,000 have RSVP'd. They'll help stage a series of stunts on Friday, during which little Miles will get to rescue someone in trouble on a cable car, chase the Penguin, capture the Riddler, and be thanked (and given a key to the city) by the mayor and the police chief at City Hall. The thousands of people who signed up will form crowds of bystanders who will cheer Batman on. "Since he wants to be a superhero, we felt like having a large crowd there waiting with signs and cheering him on would make him feel like a hero," a Make-a-Wish manager.
See the Official Make-A-Wish page HERE. AND it's possible Miles may end up with a comic book from DC Comics detailing his exploits — and a musical theme of his own, offered byDark Knight Trilogy composer Hans Zimmer.
This is so crazy and I can't imagine this happening to anyone!
During a routine visit to the doctor, 17 yr-old Jacqui Beck, mentioned that she hadn't started getting her periods. Tests soon showed that she had MRKH syndrome, a genetic condition that meant she had been born without a vagina, womb, or cervix. Wait... WHAT????
This poor girl said, "I left the doctor's [office] in tears. I would never know what it was like to give birth, be pregnant, have a period. All the things I had imagined doing suddenly got erased from my future.... I was really angry and felt like I wasn't a real woman any more."
The crazy part is this condition isn't even THAT rare!! In fact it affects one in 4,500 newborn girls. Woah...
No, you did not read that headline wrong. And yes, the world may quickly be coming to and end. On a recent episode of the show ‘Logos, What?‘ they featured people that had object sexuality. These people have feelings for inanimate objects such as tress, board games and a car, just to name a few.
This one woman decided that she fell madly in love with a roller coaster. It’s worth mentioning that the roller coaster is not in working order, rather it is in parts and is named Bruce. And he loves pizza. You can see their ‘romantic’ story in the video.
A guy who bought a used desk on Craigslist for $150 discovered that it wouldn't fit through the door into his study.... so he took the desk apart to get it inside. That's when a bag containing $98,000 fell out!!!! Daaaaaaaaaaaang!! Cheez-its for daaaaaaaays!!
Ah, but Noah Muroff's windfall did not last long. He got a conscience and the next day, with his four kids along, he took the money back to the desk's original owner. The woman "was totally speechless" and "was so shocked and touched that anyone would call," he said. "She said, 'You could have kept the money and nobody would have ever known.'"
At the London premiere of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” she moved a barricade to meet and talk to a disabled fan. Wow. This is why she is an international celebrity, and why everyone loves her. You make Louisville proud!!!
Congratulations Louisville... we've made another list. The list for most "Hipster City." I'm looking at you Highlands...
Here are the 10 cities vying for the title of hipster-est.
10. Baltimore, MD
9. Louisville, KY - This is what they said about Louisville... Louisville's all about bourbon, BBQ, and bands that play indie rock. Oh, and beer. It's home to rockers My Morning Jacket and VHS or Beta (who, ironically, now live in Brooklyn), is the birthplace of Hunter S. Thompson, and actually has restaurants that don't require staff uniforms (!!!) -- so don't even think about complimenting the waitress on her flair. The city's best hotel, 21C, is a "boutique-cum-contemporary art museum".
The rest of the Top 10
8. Venice Beach, CA
7. Savannah, GA
6. Boulder, CO
5. Oakland, CA
4. Asheville, NC
3. Austin, TX
2. Eugene, OR
1. Seattle, WA
I don't even know where to begin with this one.... 1st of all the guy is 93 and his name is Bill Flowers. Win. Secondly, his dog's name is Liberty... double win.
Now for the crazy.
You see, Bill's dog Liberty drug a human leg to the porch of Bill's house. Yea... gross. Scared he would be accused of murder, Bill buried it. But four days later, after his daughter told him to call the police—and their investigation uncovered more human remains yesterday. The investigation is ongoing. Ugh....
Horrible story.... but the Internet won't care. Something tells me someone will autotune Bill's voice in 3....2....
This is so great! A little girl writes President Obama to ask that her deployed mother come home for her birthday! Her birthday falls on Veterans Day, and her one birthday wish was for her mom to come home. She decided to write a letter to President Obama, which she signed “Love, Rylie Higa, 4th Grade.” But she never had a chance to send the letter. That's when the news got involved and HOOKED IT UP!!
Facing a double mastectomy with grace takes courage. Facing one with courage and joy is extraordinary.
But that’s exactly what Deborah Cohan did yesterday right before she went into surgery to have her breasts removed. Cohan, an Ob/Gyn and mom of two, held a dance party with her medical team in the operating room of Mt. Zion Hospital in San Francisco.
This inspiring 6-minute-long video, posted on YouTube, shows Cohan busting some serious moves as she wiggles and twerks to Beyonce’s hit “Get Me Bodied.” Cohan requested that friends and family make videos of themselves dancing to Bey too so that she could watch them during her recovery. “I have visions of a healing video montage,” she wrote. “Nothing brings me greater joy than catalyzing others to dance, move, be in their bodies. Are you with me people?”
They were. You can check out videos of Deborah’s fans shaking their booties in solidarity on her CaringBridge page.
Britney Spears has a new perfume and a new song called.... wait for it..... "Perfume." I'm sure it smells lovely.
But we thought... if the perfume smelled what Britney REALLY smelled like, what would it smell like? Haha What about other celebs? Lady Gaga = uncooked meat? Mama June = your grandma's old musty couch. You get the idea!
Two small airplanes collided 12,000 feet above Superior, Wis., on Saturday evening, sending one plane plummeting to earth in flames – but all nine passengers and both pilots survived. The only person injured, except for bumps and bruises, was the pilot of the plane that crashed.
You see… the two planes were carrying skydivers. After the planes collided, the divers leapt to safety, including the pilot of the crashing plane. The other pilot managed to stabilize the other damaged plane well enough to land. “The outcome for us was as good as it could be,” he said.
Annnnnnnnnnnd... say hi to Patrick Fette, WORLD CHAMPION!!! You see, Patrick just waltzed into the 2013 World Beard and Mustache Championship in Germany and WON the World Title in the English Style Mustache category.
Every year, our company does a Halloween costume contest. Last year the DJX team won with Gangnam Style and this year...we won again with the DJX edition of "WHAT DOES THE FOX SAY"! Huge shout out to Caufields for hooking us up with the costumes to make this happen!
According to reports, a woman in Fargo, North Dakota says she'll be handing out letters, instead of sweet treats, to children she believes are "moderately obese." "I just want to send a message to the parents of kids that are really overweight," she said. "I think it's just really irresponsible of parents to send them out looking for free candy just 'cause all the other kids are doing it."
What do you think about this? Is she helping or insulting?
The always sexy Carson Daly and Matt Lauer talked about it...
What’s up with all the giraffes on Facebook? It’s part of a riddle, if you get it wrong you have to post a pic of a giraffe on your profile. Why a giraffe? It's not clear. The riddle goes like this:
3:00 am, the doorbell rings and you wake up. Unexpected visitors. It's your parents and they are there for breakfast. You have strawberry jam, honey, wine, bread and cheese. What is the first thing you open?
Scroll down for the answer.
By the way a warning.... haha
Two acceptable answers: The answers: "The door" and "your eyes."
I won't say "hate"... but I really dislike proposals on live TV. So many things can go wrong right? Beside the fact she could say "no" and you're left kneeling there looking sad and pathetic, I think it's done more to benefit the guy than the girl. Girls don't like surprises... and very public surprises are even worse. Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnyway...
Pictures don't lie. She said "yes" but... what do you think she was thinking?
Her face tells another story!! Do you think she looks less-than-enthusiastic about this proposal?
Ice cream makers Ben & Jerry's have announced that they're releasing a flavor dedicated to Ron Burgundy and the rest of San Diego's Action 4 News team, and it's called "Scotchy Scotch Scotch." I think it's kinda bull that there isn't any actual scotch whiskey in the ice cream.... but whatev.
According to the press release, "the flavor is a creamy concoction of butterscotch ice cream with ribbons of butterscotch swirl."
Is this the best lip-synch to a toddler's temper tantrum ever??
From YouTube: "My 6 year old daughter had been in her room wigging out for about an hour, and there was no talking her down. I was getting fed up, so my husband decided to lighten the mood. For the record, she's not typically a beast child - she's actually a pretty awesome little kid who was having a rough day. :)"
Wow.... I know every artist has an off night, but in this video originally from 2001, Britney Spears' live microphone feed (without backing track or sweetening effects) from her show in Las Vegas is isolated.
It's just now going viral, but really has anyone ever accused Britney of ever singing "live?" See for yourself....
After watching the Colts beat the Broncos (and Peyton) on Sunday... I noticed something after the game. Is Indianapolis Colts' QB Andrew Luck and Peter Griffin the same person? They sure sound the same!!!
For comparison.... 1st we have Luck from an interview earlier in the week...
This 33-year-old man decided to spend close to $100,000 over five years for plastic surgery to look like Justin Bieber. Yep, I'll say that again...a 33-year-old man decided to spend close to $100,000 over five years for plastic surgery to look like Justin Bieber. Toby Sheldon, a song writer, has spent his savings on constant surgeries that are meant to give him a smile and eyes like Bieber.
I mean, if you're going to pick a celebrity to look like... is Bieber the one?? I'm sure he's a great singer.
There's this controversial globe-trotting "sex tourist" Daryush Valizadeh (btw... who gets a job like this???), who put together a world map rating the "easiness of girls by country." The map is fairly straightforward: A rating of 1 means the girls from this country are "very easy to get with"; a rating of 5 means the girls from this country are "very hard to hook up with."
The United States and Canada are ranked a solid 3 — i.e., "normal difficulty." So.... uh congratulations?
Absolut Vodka has come out with CHICAGO flavored Vodka...not Moustache and Sausage like you'd think. The vodka maker on Monday unveiled Absolut Chicago, with the essence of olive and rosemary. The limited edition vodka comes in a bottle splashed with a city-scape design. What would Louisville TASTE like, if Absolut came out with a flavor? Bourbon?
This is pretty cool... Eric Stemen took a montage of timelapse photographs around Louisville over the course of roughly a year and a half... beginning February 28, 2012 and ending on September 13, 2013.
Snorkeler finds rare 18-foot ‘sea monster’: Never swimming in the ocean again…
This was found off of Catalina Island in Southern California in 30 feet of water. It is an 18 foot oarfish which rarely seen because they live in 3000 feet deep water. The oarfish Santana found – which had eyes the size of silver dollars – is believed to have died of natural causes.
Your cat can now get drunk….thanks Japan. Japan now has a "wine made exclusively for cats" made by a pet food company. They call it Nyan Nyan Nouveau and it contains Cabernet grapes juice, vitamin C and catnip, which means they will get drunk. More from TIME HERE
