Stop don't talk to me from Orange is the New Black's Twitter trending (Video)

This video of the Orange is the New Black song "Stop Don't Talk to Me" is trending at the moment of this post on Twitter. I can see the humor even though I have not watched the Netflix hit since season one, but I guessed the cast song must have been based on a scene from the show.

Marvin Gaye's family awarded millions in Pharrell, Thicke suit (Video)

My better post the "Blurred Lines" case is this one: "Borrowed Grooves: Electric Guest, the Clash, Katrina & the Waves all did what Robin Thicke over-did," but Google keeps sending folks to my old post about Pharrell Williams's hit "Happy."

Mophie's Black God in Superbowl Ad (Video)

At least one Twitter commenter noted, "Twitter is making a really big deal about God being black in the Mophie commercial, as if Bruce Almighty didn't happen over a decade ago." Actually, I didn't see anyone on Twitter really upset about God being represented as a black man, but I'll take the tweeters word for it. Twitter is a digital sea of humanity, so whatever stupidity you hear of in ...more

Teacher Dances With Students to Hot "Uptown Funk"

As friends and family know and as my previous blog post confirms, I adore Mark Ronson's hit "Uptown Funk" featuring the lovable Bruno Mars. I watched the video the same day it dropped, immediately fell in love with the its "tip of the hat" to old school jams, and saw "hit" all over it. I can add to my adorable list this performance of the song by theater students at A ....more
