Lady Gaga Will Perform In Space In 2015

Naturally

In what I expect will come as no surprise whatsoever to anyone at all we learn today that Lady Gaga will reportedly become the first popstar to perform in outer space. According to a new report out today, Gaga has agreed to appear at the 2015 Zero G Colony Music Festival in New Mexico where she will fly into space on a Virgin Galactic ship to perform a song on the shuttle. Honestly, I’m not at all familiar with this festival but I am aware of the Virgin Galactic flights that will take folks into space (for a very hefty fee) starting next year. I have to say … I’m usually unimpressed with Gaga‘s outlandish antics but this performance in space sounds insanely cool. More »

The 90′s Called

The TV Guide

Altho it just became Fall, I did a bit of Spring cleaning yesterday in order to dig out some stuff from my closet for disposal. As I’m sure you can understand, stuff has accumulated over the years that has been taking up lots of space and needed to get tossed out. I found a bunch of old cellphones that, honestly, I just can’t part with tho. I found a bag full of old BlackBerry mobile phones and even my ancient see-thru landline telephone. While I managed to find a lot of stuff to get rid of, these relics from the days of yesteryear went right back into the closet for storage. More »

Movie Review: ‘The Internship’, Tech Review: The Beats Pill

The TV Guide

My last full day here in Detroit Rock City was a mostly chill but hugely satisfying day. I got to spend the whole time with Sarah and Mark and I have to say, yesterday reminded me first, how much I love my dear friends, and second, how much I miss them when I don’t get to see them as often as I like. The early part of the day was emotional but the rest of the day was much more fun. We went for a nice drive to enjoy the sunny, warm weather and then we met up with Sarah’s mom last night so that we could take her out for a dinner/movie date. The last part of the night was spent with Mark listening to some tunes with a sweet new tech toy that I’ve been playing around with for a few days. I’m sure all of this sounds painfully normal but honestly, it was exactly what I’ve been needing for some time now. More »

Great news, everyone! Justin Bieber has decided that he is going to go into outer space! Bad news, everyone … that ticket is a round-trip ticket that means he will return to Earth … but still, maybe he’ll decide to stay there for a while?

Dita Von Teese Models The World’s First 3D Printed Dress

Wow

Burlesque star Dita Von Teese has been known to wear some of the most fabulous fashions around but she has taken things one step further with her modeling of the world’s first 3D printed dress. For weeks now, we’ve been hearing about 3D printing technology that allows the user to input a 3D rendered image and have a printer “print out” the image in actual 3D. For example, you input an image of a cube and the printer will print out a three dimensional cube (usually out of plastic). Designer Michael Schmidt and architect Francis Bitonti collaborated on a dress that was designed on an iPad with Dita‘s body measurements and … voila! They printed out a dress for her to wear. It’s really freakin’ cool. Check it out below. More »

A New Bra Has Been Designed To Detect Breast Cancer

The Early Detection Bra Is On Its Way

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, which means it’s a great time to hear about a new development in early detection. If you live in the states (and even if you don’t) there’s a very good chance that you personally know someone who either survived or succumbed to breast cancer. And even if you don’t, we’ve seen many celebrities, like Giuliana Rancic, Cynthia Nixon, and Christina Applegate come forward and speak about their personal experiences with the disease. By now, we all know that early detection is key and now scientists are backing a new bra that’s actually been designed to detect cancerous changes in cells and breast tissue. On the one hand, there’s something really bizarre-sounding about this, but ultimately I think this is fantastic news. Except for the part where the bra will coast abou $1,000, lol.

Watch: This ‘Saturday Night Live’ Skit Is For Anyone Who’s Ever Complained About Their iPhone

That Means You, Shannon
American People Problems

So Saturday Night Live just went iiiinnn on Americans, and it. Was. Awesome! Last night Christina Applegate hosted the show and she also played host on what may be one of my favorite skits ever. A group of techies sit on a panel and discuss some of the major glitches of the iPhone 5, and the creators of the iPhone not-so-happily respond to some of their issues. It’s hilarious! It kinda reminds me of a segment David Spade used to do on his show (The Showbiz Show With David Spade), called ‘Why They Hate Us.’ He would address the age-old, American question about why people in other countries have beef with Americans; usually he’d show a clip from MTV‘s My Super Sweet 16 to prove his point. It was awesome. Peep the video above and click inside for some of the other SNL clips from last night!

Scientists Figured Out How To Destroy Bad Memories, Just Like In ‘Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind’

That-Ish-Cray Of The Day

Okay. So this is either really, really cool… or really, really scary. Apparently, researchers over at Uppsala University have been watching one of my favorite movies of all time, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind. And while there’s nothing wrong with that, there is something crazy about that movie ‘coming to life’ via a new scientific method that essentially zaps bad memories from the brain. Crazy, right??? But apparently, the process does have its benefits. Click inside to learn more about today’s That-Ish-Cray Of The Day!
