The hologram resurrection of the late Tupac Shakur thrilled the audience Sunday night at the 2012 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival … then it became a huge internet sensation yesterday.

Yesterday we learned that The Simpsons creator Matt Groening revealed that the Springfield featured in the animated series is located in the State of Oregon.
