If TV On The Radio And LCD Soundsystem Had A Baby…

…She might sound a lot like this. Happy Friday. You earned it.

This Is Eric Garner

This is Chris Rock:

“So, to say Obama is progress is saying that he’s the first black person that is qualified to be president. That’s not black progress. That’s white progress. There’s been black people qualified to be president for hundreds of years. If you saw Tina Turner and Ike having a lovely breakfast over there, would you say their relationship’s improved? Some people would. But a smart person would go, “Oh, he stopped punching her in the face.” It’s not up to her. Ike and Tina Turner’s relationship has nothing to do with Tina Turner. Nothing. It just doesn’t. The question is, you know, my kids are smart, educated, beautiful, polite children. There have been smart, educated, beautiful, polite black children for hundreds of years. The advantage that my children have is that my children are encountering the nicest white people that America has ever produced. Let’s hope America keeps producing nicer white people.”

Only In Canada

Would a crowd finish the national anthem of the opposing team. That’s what happened when a microphone cut out before the Nashville Predators played the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre in Toronto a few weeks ago. I’m pretty sure the applause at the end is everyone being sorta surprised they pulled it off. Kudos, Canada.

Thanks, Kurt!

It Feels So Empty Without Ye

On a rainy-ass December night, sandwiched between Carrie Underwood and Bruce Springsteen, Kanye lit a fire in the middle of Times Square. He screamed. He howled. He flailed his limbs around for five songs. Then he dropped the mic and walked off stage. For AIDS.

Thanks, Zach!

Click Hole FTW

Everything ClickHole does is really funny or super smart. This particular piece falls into the former category, but don’t let that deter you.
