Friday Love With Chance The Rapper

what’s better than tripping is falling in love
what’s better than Letterman, Leno, Fallon, and all the above
what’s better than popping bottles trying to ball in the club
is the first caveman pops with his son, ball and a club
what’s better than paper is balling it up
what’s better than followers is actually falling in love
what’s better than frolicking, follies, fallin in mud,
rolling in green pastures, wandering following love
what’s better than eating is feeding your fam
what’s better than meetings is missing meetings to meet with your fam
what’s better than leaning and needing your Xan
is hitting your zan dreaming a dream could mean leaving the land
what’s better than yelling is hollering love
what’s better than rhymes, nickles, dimes, and dollars and dubs
is dialing up your darling just for calling her up
there ain’t nothing better than falling in love

— Chance The Rapper’s ‘Interlude (That’s Love)

Good Lookin’ Out

It was that meteor a few months ago that brought Russian dash cams to our attention. Before that fateful day, it was all shaky cell phone video and security cameras. After that day, there was the inevitable deluge of bizarro footage from Russian dash cams — cows falling out of trucks, folks getting into fights, and dealing with fits of road rage previously unknown.

But what about the good stuff? We’re glad to see this collection of altruism a la Russia caught on dash cams has upwards of 5 million views to date. And yes, the music is a little much.

Thanks, Mr. Mascari.

Good Quotations: Gosling On Gosling

“I don’t think it’s really about me. I think it really is sort of like, I’m a pigeon and the Internet is Fabio and it just happened.”
