I LOVE KARAOKE
Someone get this kid a recording contract!
Not much is know about this clip of a young man belting out Whitney Houston’s single “I Have Nothing”song from the film “The Bodyguard.”
But one thing is for sure, he’s got a pretty amazing voice, and the audience in attendance at the outdoor karaoke event sure seems to enjoy it.
Here’s the original video below for comparison.
Another young singer named Lin Yu Chun captivated the world several years ago with his version of Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” on a Taiwanese version of “American Idol.”

Hot days are here! Today we are cooling off with a crisp watermelon salad with a southwestern flair. It’s sort of a spin off of a classic watermelon salad with feta and mint, but with cotija instead of feta, and cilantro in place of the mint.

Chilacates looks to bring Mexican food to Armory Street.
A new Mexican restaurant is seeking a food license to open up shop at 224 Armory St. in Jamaica Plain. Chilacates, with manager Socrates Abreu, has a hearing with the Boston licensing board on Thursday.
Chilacates is seeking a 10-seat counter at the shop that most recently housed the Dominican Armory Restaurant. Predominantly, Chilacates would serve walk-up and take-out customers. The establishment is seeking permission for a beverage cooler inside, without beer or wine. If approved, Chilacates could be open from 8 a.m. - 10 p.m. daily.
A fledgling Instagram profile shows Chilacates has been in the works for nearly a year, with two posts from 44 weeks ago. The posts indicate Chilacates, which is the name of a pepper found extensively in Jalisco, Mexico, will focus on burritos. The company has registered the domain chilacates.com but hasn't created a website yet.
Last week, interior designer Ivory & Bone shared a photo of antique tin, pictured, which apparently will be used to build Chilacates' counter.
The antique tin has arrived! Sandwich bar...check! One step closer to the opening of Chilacates! Stay tuned... #chilacates #ivoryandbone #mexicancuisine #jamaicaplain #driveinservice #etsy #interiordesign #restaurantdesign

Because news cameras are apparently only there if looting and protests are mentioned, here are some shots from the march for peace in Charleston yesterday. In case you missed it, thousands marched to Ravenel Bridge, holding hands in prayer and unity. Yet this doesn’t make news, but an interview with the killer’s friend does. all photos from Twitter

PORTLAND, Ore. – Portland Police responded to a series of noise complaints this weekend and unknowingly broke up the much anticipated record release party of local band Stink Bandits, outing the hyped-up group as nothing more than three raccoons and a drum machine.
“In a joint operation with the Southeast Animal Control, Portland City Police officers investigated an abandoned building in relation to a noise and smell complaint from neighborhood residents. When officers arrived, there was an abnormally large pile of garbage on the front yard separating a crowd of punks from the band. After scaling the massive wall of rubbish, officers and animal handlers discovered the music was being performed by a small group of feral raccoons, who release music in the form of limited edition cassette tapes under the name Stink Bandits,” said a police spokesperson.
In recent months, Stink Bandits have been the pioneers of a new movement known as ‘Trash Core'; followers of the movement promote, according to their website, “musical chaos, dumpster diving, and washing your hands before you eat.” The band also remained committed to playing only outdoor or semi-outdoor venues, playing behind makeshift screens, which were later revealed to be plastic bags spread between trash cans.
One Stink Bandits fan took the news particularly hard.
“About 9 months ago I hit a raccoon with my car. Around that same time Stink Bandits took a hiatus and now I am afraid I killed a member of my favorite band,” Taylor Allen said while attempting to hold back tears.
Authorities are shocked that fans of the group were unaware the musicians they loved were in fact disease-infested scavengers.
“As officers, little surprises us during an arrest, we had presumed this was a typical southeast gaze of raccoons. We had no idea that this group were local celebrities. I still don’t know how they figured out how to program a drum machine,” said officer Mike Stephens.
Inside of the building, police discovered what appears to be a band practice space with crude instruments and a zine printing press.
Stink Bandits are currently being held at the Multnomah Animal Shelter, but are scheduled to be released into Mount Tabor to complete their city-wide Trashcan Tipping Tour soon — maybe even tonight.

Lovable stripping doofus Channing Tatum did an AMA on Reddit yesterday, or as Channing probably called it, “Yo, Give Me Much Questions.” Agreeing to do a Reddit AMA was really brave of Channing. He totally seems like the kind of guy who gets nervous every time he goes through the drive-thru at Taco Bell and the voice on the magic speaking box asks if he wants to make it a combo (“Oh man, I know this one…calm down dude, you got this“).
Channing is currently promoting Magic Mike XXL, so I expected every answer to be just a picture of his abs. Instead, he gave us a gift far more beautiful – Channing Tatum gave us the real thoughts rolling around inside Channing Tatum’s adorably dopey skull. That, or he smacked his penis around on the keyboard for a couple hours and let autocorrect do its thing. Either way, Christmas has come early! Note: All answers appear exactly as Channing typed them.
When he was asked how long it took him to write that HAHAHAHA-filled email from the Sony email hack: “I’m sure exactly how long. I hit the h and a for a long time before I realized I could copy and paste. I’m not the most tech savvy person around but it did become a lot easier and faster.”
What Channing Tatum wishes his super power could be: “I wish that I could make anyone at any point just happen to be naked. Not for the reasons that everyone thinks. Because people get really nice when they get naked. Like okay, I can’t be an asshole. People aren’t assholes when they get naked (for the most part). They are thinking about what they look like. Shitty answer, I tried to do something funny and it didn’t work.”
What Channing Tatum named his penis: “Gilbert.”
How much Channing Tatum loves The Care Bears: “I was just given a bear for my 35th Birthday by a friend Joanne and it was a bear with a heart on it. The carebear cousins were my favorite. There was the lion and the fast rabbit. Those two were pretty awesome. ”
What Channing Tatum would bring if he was stuck on an island for the rest of his life: “How about a magical seashell that’s always filled with bourbon. And I would like a magical palm tree that had a lot of shade with instead of coconuts there’s just peanut butter jelly sandwiches with cheetos underneath. And my wife that is always happy and possibly naked.”
How Channing Tatum would survive a zombie apocalypse: “Oh man. Crossbow, straight up, and I’d want an army of ninja chimpanzees that crush people all around me. Or I would just go to Sandra Bullock’s house as I’m sure she has all that stuff because she’s dope and kick-ass.”
Who Channing Tatum would fuck/marry/kill between Ray Romano, Danny DeVito, and Gilbert Gottfried: “I’d fuck Danny Devito, as I was saying earlier it could be fun. I’d marry Ray Romano, because I think he has a pretty solid perspective on marriage. I don’t know who would be the male or female, you figure it out. And I like Gilbert Gottfried but I wouldn’t mind killing him.”
On fighting Danny DeVito: “Can i just fight a Danny devito sized Danny Devito because I think I could take him and I would be on top or I could just use him as a spinner as I’m assuming we’re going to have sex after we fight if we’re naked.”
Who Channing Tatum’s favorite Disney character is: “I like the broom from Fantasia.”
“I like the broom from Fantasia.” I think that pretty much just summed up everything you need to know about Channing Tatum.
But I have my own questions about Channing’s answers. Specifically, what is Channing Tatum’s obsession with Danny DeVito? And why do I now really want to see a remake of Twins written by and starring Channing Tatum and Danny DeVito? No seriously, think about it. It would be mad sick. Plus they could write a part for that dope-ass broom. Oh shit, I think I caught second-hand dumb from reading Channing’s answers.
The enchanting and stunning dragon claw necklace from the 90s!
I don’t watch Game of Thrones, because I already watched the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon from the 80s (it’s practically the same thing, right?) and on Sunday nights I prefer to enrich my mind with quality television shows like Botched and Snapped: Killer Couples. But everyone is always cumming at the mouth about that high-budget ren faire extravaganza and all that dragon talk got me thinking about a gorgeous piece of jewelry that decorated the neck of every self-respecting goth kid in the 90s.
The dragon claw necklace could be found, and probably still can be found, at only the finest boutiques (Spencer’s) and you’d wear it with your most luxurious ensemble (a crushed velvet button down and black pleather pants). The dragon claw necklace looks like a dragon doing a testicular cancer check on one of God’s crystal balls. It is a gorgeous work of art.
I know that the white-haired dragon mom on Game of Thrones wears a dragon claw necklace, but does she wear that one? If she doesn’t, she’s totally a fraud, because that is the ONLY dragon claw necklace.

Election Day 2016 is still many months away, which leaves plenty of time to critique the presidential candidates on every tiny detail of their online campaigns.
Donald Trump pretty much broke the Internet as soon as he stepped on that escalator Tuesday in a Periscoped event in New York.
But Jeb Bush also managed to set himself apart from the crowded pack this week by inserting a synopsis of the 1988 movie “Die Hard” into the source code of his campaign website.
“Also starring Severus Snape,” was included in the text for some odd reason as well.
The Easter egg was first pointed out by New York Times reporter Jeremy Bowers on Twitter.
— Jeremy Bowers (@jeremybowers) June 15, 2015
It has since been deleted from the page, but the screenshots live on.
Why they chose “Die Hard” remains a mystery (it’s most likely an accident or filler text), but as he points out, other candiates have also inserted a few hidden items in their source code as well.
Hillary Clinton’s just has a simple ASCII-art version of her logo.
Rand Paul’s is an ad asking people to volunteer for their campaign.
Martin O’Malley has a large ASCII version of his name in script.
And the Carly Fiorina domain that was swooped up by a troll includes a hidden demon sheep.

SPOKANE, Wash. – After resigning from her post as president of the Spokane, Washington chapter of the N.A.A.C.P due to a highly publicized scandal regarding her race, Rachel Dolezal created even more controversy on Monday by claiming to be a founding member of legendary hardcore punk band Bad Brains.
The 37-year-old Dolezal claims to “have been there since day one” when describing her association with the band that formed in 1977 (when Dolezal was less than a year old).
Dolezal’s parents, who are white, have stated publicly that her daughter was no where near Washington D.C.’s punk scene in the late ’70s, or 171-A Studios, and that she has never expressed any interest in punk music until very recently.
“I… don’t understand… why people have a hard time… believing this,” stated a confused Dolezal when confronted by reporters. “Being in the Bad Brains shaped my entire identity, they are like family to me.”
Bad Brains frontman HR has remained relatively quiet on the situation, and refused to comment on a picture Dolezal produced of the two, which she says proves HR is her father.

Every damn time dad tries to be cool
When The Hollywood Reporter spilled the beans back in April that Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig had made a secret semi-serious Lifetime movie called A Deadly Adoption, tears of pure happiness poured from my eye-holes like Botox from a broken seam in Kim Kardashian’s face. Then later, when Will Ferrell announced that he was throwing the whole thing in the trash because it was supposed to be a secret, my happy tears turned to sad stanky tears.
Now my tears have gone back to the happy kind again, because The Hollywood Reporter confirmed yesterday that A Deadly Adoption is back on and will air on June 20th. And thanks to that poster, now I’m really excited. A Deadly Adoption looks like True Detective meets Mom at Sixteen starring Chuck Norris and a heavily airbrushed Cathy from Dance Moms. Of course, that’s all a lot of words to say that it looks perfect, and I will be clearing my schedule for the night of the 20th so I can park my ass on the couch with a box of wine and get messy while I watch this mess. “And that’s different from every other night how?” just coughed my couch, my ass, and the 12 boxes of wine stacked in my kitchen.
The only problem I can see is that date. June 20th isn’t a Sunday. “Sources” tell THR that someone fucked up, and the poster should have said “Saturday June 20.” It’s already a mess, and it hasn’t even aired yet! Good job, Will Ferrell; you really know your Lifetime movies.

When traveling the frozen woods of Norway, beware of Trekronhjort, the mythical three-headed stag. According to legend, Trekronhjort will grant a wish to anyone who encounters it; a remarkable 97 percent of the time, that wish is “please don’t rip me to pieces with your antlers.”
BUTTFLAP GENOCIDE EHEHEHEHHE
SAN JOSE, Calif. – Local punk band, Buttflap Genocide, is still unsure if it played a charity show or got robbed last night.
“He came right up to us after the gig was over while we were loading up and said, ‘I’m taking all the fucking money,'” Trey Jordan recalls of the traumatic exchange with the booker/mugger.
Jordan says members of Buttflap Genocide are still unsure if the man who approached them was the booker of the show or a common street-level criminal. Either way, the group has started a Kickstarter to help raise funds that were raised/stolen at the gig,
“We’re looking to the community to help us replace the funds we lost when we played this charity mugging,” Jordan says in the video for the Kickstarter. “I want to either thank the fans that came out to support the cause, or condemn the ruthless criminal who mugged us. Once I figure out what actually happened, we’ll update this Kickstarter.”
As of press time, the band’s $10,000 option where it plays a “private party for you and friends” is still unclaimed.
