  1. Bow Down: Archaeologists Discover Tomb of Previously Unknown Pharaonic Queen

    The 3rd Khentakawess, but first in our hearts.

    Czech archaeologists have unearthed a tomb in Egypt belonging to a queen who ruled 4,500 years ago.

  2. Three Years of Selfies Create One Really Impressive Time-Lapse Lip Sync [Video]

    Can we end the "selfie olympics" now? This kid wins gold, silver, and bronze.

    A UK teen took a picture of himself every day for three years to create a time-lapse video for Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now." He wound up with a pretty amazing result, but we're a bit preoccupied with the fact that he just happened to post the multi-year project during the selfie olympics. Is he on some kind of Queen-themed time traveling mission?

  3. Bohemian Rhapsody: Star Wars Edition Is the Most Charming Parody Video You’ll See Today

    Matters nothing really. See anyone can. Matters nothing really. Matters nothing really to me.

    This Star Wars parody of "Bohemian Rhapsody" certainly isn't the first or only one of its kind, but there's something about it that we can't resist -- and it's usually so very easy to resist silly parody songs. The acting is hammy, the effects aren't great, and the lyrics aren't perfect, but there's just something about it we love. The Force maybe?

  4. One of Queen’s Swans Found BBQed Near Windsor Castle in England

    In other news, I might be psychic.

    You ever tell somebody a weird piece of trivia you know only to have it become a weirdly viral piece of news the next day? Because yesterday in an editorial meeting I happened to mention that it's illegal to eat a swan in England because they're all technically property of the Queen, and now we're finding out that somebody tried to do just that.

  5. Previously Unreleased Michael Jackson and Freddie Mercury Duets Are On Their Way

    We have a pesky member of the camelid family to thank for this taking 30 years.

    Freddie Mercury, one of the most famous frontmen of, well, ever and Michael Jackson, the man who showed us all that being born cute and talented is no guarantee of enduring sanity, recorded three tracks 30 years ago that were never released, because -- really -- Michael Jackson showed up to the studio with a llama.

  6. Physicists Propose Way to Test If Our Universe is a Computer Simulation

    Science may, at long last, have devised a way to answer the question posed by timeless philsopher Freddie Mercury: "Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?" A team of physicists at the University of Bonn believe they have a way to test whether or not we're all living in a computer simulation by seeking out the edges of the lattice work that would underlie such a simluation. Which is pretty interesting work except for one thing. If we are living in a simulation, we definitely don't want to know it. Just let us live the lie.

  7. Happy Birthday, Freddie Mercury, Rovio Has Turned You Into An Angry Bird! This Feels Weird. [VIDEO]

    what is this I don't even

    It wasn't too long ago we saw a hologram version of the late Queen singer Freddie Mercury perform at the London Olympics. That in and of itself rubbed me the wrong way but now Rovio, creators of Angry Birds, have turned the singer into one of their animated fowls. Yeah. This is strange. Take a look and see what you think. There is at least one good thing about it - it's for a good cause. According to THR, "The video raises awareness for the special Freddie For A Day fundraising evening hosted by Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor at which, for the second year, friends and stars will gather at the Savoy in Freddie’s honor, to remember him and raise funds for the Mercury Phoenix Trust - Fighting Aids Worldwide."

  8. You’ll Love This Nail Art, Your Thumbs Probably Won’t

    Fans Do Cool Things

    As somebody who, among other duties, types for a living, I often find myself in the position of realizing that over the weekend my nails must have gotten a little too long because I'm making typos on every other word. I respect the work of nail artists. But mostly I'm mystified at their patience, steadiness, and willingness to hobble their fingers. Either that, or they posses a secret supernatural ability to manipulate objects while having long nails that was denied me at birth. Judging by some of the designs that KayleighOC creates out of nail extensions, she has such an ability.

  9. “Optical Illusion” Freddie Mercury To Follow In Holographic Footsteps of Tupac

    Brace yourselves: In the wake of Tupac's surprising and widely-discussed "holographic" performance at Coachella, there are now plans to bring another famous celebrity back from the grave to rock once more. Brace yourselves again: It's Freddie Mercury. Really though, neither of those things should be a surprise.

  11. William Shatner Does “Bohemian Rhapsody,” Rains Down Zodiac Debris Upon Us All [Video]

    And Now For Something Completely Different

    Today is the day you will finally think to yourself: "I am so sad Freddie Mercury missed out on the Internet." Because today is the day you first saw William Shatner, rendered as a CGI sky being, talk-singing the Queen classic "Bohemian Rhapsody" while raining a cosmic meteor shower upon the entire world. What would Freddie have thought of this? Freddie dressed like this on stage. He would have loved this. This song is part of Shatner's Seeking Major Tom album, which does not come with a free bag of marijuana, as far as we know. (via Nerd Bastards)

  12. We Will Watch John Cleese Do Anything If It Involves Silly Dancing [Video]

    The World Doesn't End Because the Doctor Dances

    John Cleese has been doing a series of "Road Rage" ads for the GPS system TomTom, and when you see this man reprising selections from "Ministry of Silly Walks" in dance form to Queen's "I Want to Break Free," there is just no way we can not share it. There are just too many things going absolutely right. And this is only one of six ads where we get to watch how John Cleese handles a traffic jam. (Flavorwire)

  13. If This VW is a Rockin’, It’s Because We’re Covering Bohemian Rhapsody Inside

    I'm not really a Queen fan, but the Porkka Playboys have made me care about said band and their epic, operatic rock ballad Bohemian Rhapsody more than ever before. Not only because of the Playboys' deadpan earnestness, or their unique instrumentation (accordion case drumset and melodica, to name a few), but because the entire song is performed within the confines of a ca. 1980 VW Polo. Can't get enough covers of rock songs by a Finnish band in a strange locale? Don't worry, the Playboys also performed The Ace of Spades in a sauna (nothing obscene, but NSFW-ish). (via Neatorama)

  14. Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” Rage Comic [Video]

    The rage comic, turned into a video set to Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" by reddit user friend168, is exactly what it sounds like: The entirety of "Bohemian Rhapsody" told with rage faces. The full image can be viewed here, but the comic set to the music video is a lot more fun since Freddy Mercury's vocals sound better in real life than they probably do in your head.

    YouTube user Joe Penna, otherwise known as MysteryGuitarMan, has released what is quite possibly his best video yet, Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" performed with slide whistles. This video showcases why he is so popular on YouTube: I mean, there's a kazoo.

  16. ASL Interpreter Rocks Out to “Bohemian Rhapsody” in Sign Language [Video]

    ASL interpreter Sam Farley's sister secretly recorded him rocking out to Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" in sign language while he was driving. He should keep his hands on the steering wheel! But also, it is an epic jam rivaling Wayne's World's. Check it out:
