The Devil is in the Details
Back in January, The Satanic Temple decided to crowd-fund a statue of Baphomet so that they could install it in front of the Oklahoma statehouse, right next to the big state of the Ten Commandments that was installed there back in 2012. Because the Commandments state was a “gift”, the Satanists wanted to give the state of Oklahoma a gift of their own. The crowd-funding campaign sought to raise $20,000 for the statue and ended up getting about $30,000 in donations. The state of Oklahoma is trying to get out of letting the Satanists install this statue but the Satanists are moving full speed ahead with their statue plans. Click below to see what the statue will look like if the Satanists are successful in installing it in front of the OK statehouse. More »

Selfie, Selfie, Selfie … there are a LOT of celeb selfies to share today … but this one isn’t really a celeb selfie, it’s a political selfie.

Not content to share a selfie that features only himself, the Veep enlisted the aid of one of his good buddies to take his first selfie with. I mean, if you’re going to share a selfie on Instagram, you gotta make sure it’s one of epic proportions. More »
"No Brad Cooper but ..."
Inspired by that super celebrity selfie that Ellen DeGeneres took with all those celebs during the television broadcast of the Academy Awards last month, Jimmy Kimmel has shared a super selfie of his own on his official Instagram profile. Kimmel played moderator at an event attended by President Bill Clinton, former First Lady/Senator/Secretary of State Hilary Clinton and their daughter Chelsea Clinton which took place at the Clinton Global Initiative University in Tempe, AZ last night. Kimmel hammered away at Hilary asking her about her possible run for the US presidency in 2016 … which she masterfully managed to sidestep. And, because he had the entire First Family with him, Jimmy though it would be cool to snap a selfie photo with the Clintons … which you can see in full below. More »
Fern-y or Die
President Obama sat down with funnyman Zach Galifianakis to tape an interview about national health care for his webseries Between Two Ferns (produced by Funny or Die). Galifianakis has previously interviewed luminaries like Justin Bieber, Samuel L. Jackson and James Franco on Between Two Ferns but this interview with Obama is his most high-profile get yet. As you can see in the video embedded above, the president is able to crack wise with Galifianakis and score some laughs of his own. If this is an attempt to get young people to sign up for health care under the Affordable Care Act, then SIGN ME UP! Watch and love this fun video.
President Barack Obama addressed the media this week to update the world on the US’s progress in science and technology. At this press event, he announced to the world that we, the United States of America, are “building Iron Man“. Sounds cool to me. Click the embed above to watch President Obama make this exciting announcement.
BTW, just between you and me, I think he’s being serious so … cool!

The entire second season of House of Cards is finally available on Netflix today and, as a result, people will be watching the new episodes of the series at their own speed … meaning, some folks will have the time to watch most (if not all) of the second season before others will even get the chance to watch episode 1. President Barack Obama, himself a big fan of House of Cards, posted a tweet reminding us all that A.) the entirety of House of Cards season 2 comes out today and B.) it would be SO NOT COOL if anyone to post spoilers online about the show.

The former 'American Idol' wants your VOTE again
For a few weeks now, there have been rumors that American Idol runner-up Clay Aiken was considering a run for the US Congress in his home state of North Carolina and today … he made those rumors official. Aiken has formally thrown his hat in the ring in a bid for the congressional seat in North Carolina’s 2nd District. To make his announcement, Clay released a 4+ minute video, embedded above, which explains his desire for political office. Honestly, the video is a bit sparse, IMHO, but I think that is the thing he is going for … just a regular guy wanting to serve the people of his district in Congress. Watch the video above and see what you think of Clay Aiken as a politician. He has a long way to go to win a seat in Congress. First he must go thru a primary against fellow Democrats then he has to take on the incumbent Republican Renee Ellmers. Hopefully, Aiken‘s rise to political power will be more successful than his bid to become an American Idol. Hmm. Would YOU vote for Clay Aiken for Congress?
