A series of important tubes.
TIME may not be down with Internet slang, but it did recently acknowledge a diverse and international group of people that are changing our world online and IRL as part of its "30 Most Influential People on the Internet" list.Read More
It's no punch to the face, but we'll take it!
Hey, remember that time Justin Bieber's entourage tried to get Nathan Fillion to stop playing Halo at a Halo release party? Alan Tudyk does. He told a packed crowd at NerdHQ all about it a few weeks ago, and it was met with the raucous applause that only an anti-Justin Bieber story can achieve. Godspeed, sir.Read More
That's one of the craziest sentences I've ever written.
Fan of The Tweet of God? We sure are, and today we've been loving His kind of bananas new book of the Bible about Justin Bieber, #TheBookOfBieb. It's an insane look at some of the crazy things Bieber's done in his storied descent into madness and obscurity. It's ongoing, but we've Storified the first chapter for you.Read More
He's the hero Beliebers deserve, but the rest of the world is really not down.
Faster than a speeding bullet!
Child musician and professional Twitter trending topic, Justin Bieber has upset the world after a recent visit to the Anne Frank House. There were no reports that Bieber or his entourage behaved inappropriately during their hour long visit to the museum, but when the Anne Frank House Facebook page publicly posted what Bieber wrote in the guestbook the Internet went nuts. So what caused all the outrage?Read More
I don't always write about Justin Bieber, but when I do it's because it gives me an excuse to write about John Darnielle. Bieber got into some trouble on tour recently, and he's been taking flak in the press for it, but that doesn't interest me. What does interest me is that the event in Bieber's life caused The Mountain Goats' Darnielle to write a song sort of defending Bieber from the press, and there's always more room in the world for another John Darnielle song -- even if it's about Justin Bieber.Read More
A few weeks ago I told you about Sesame Street's goal of hitting one billion views on YouTube to put them in the same pantheon as the likes of PSY's "Gangnam Style," Lady Gaga, and Justin Bieber. As of Valentine's Day they were about 22 million views shy of their goal, so Telly pleaded for more views, promising a great "Top Secret" video when the goal was reached. Well guess what just happened. Check out this new Sesame Street video with The Count counting to one billion.Read More
The world is a better place because of Sesame Street. It's one of the most popular children's television shows of all time. It also has a huge number of YouTube views. As of 1:26 pm today, the Sesame Street YouTube channel had 978,247,378 views, but 978,247,378 million views isn't cool. You know what's cool? A billion views. That's the goal Sesame Street set for itself, and they've released a new video featuring Telly, who is the best, to help spread the word that when they hit one billion views they'll release a "Top Secret" video.Read More
We don't know how we missed the fact that in November comics publisher Blue Water Productions printed a comic book about reality television child Alana Thompson as in Honey Boo Boo -- we're just lucky we guess -- but today they also released "collectible" variant covers. We put "collectible" in quotes not as a commentary on the perceived value of such an item, but because the covers are only being offered digitally, so we're not sure how one would really go about collecting them, or why one would want to.Read More
In a sign that maybe the Vatican doesn't really understand this newfangled Twitter thing, they've announced that the Pope is beating Justin Bieber in the only category that counts: Retweets. If you're wondering how that statement can be true, don't bother, because it isn't. Don't worry, Pope, we're sure you're still beating Bieber in most giant hats. Probably.Read More
May The Force Be With You
All C3-Bieb-O wants is your loving embrace -- so much that Teddie Films helped him write a Justin Bieber "Boyfriend" parody, because, duh, that's the fastest way to a girl's heart. I won't compare this edition to the original, but I will say that I am infinitely amused by C-3PO having hair -- do you think Han Solo momentarily suspended his distaste for our favorite protocol droid and shared his secret to keeping luscious locks? (via Youtube.)Read More
Justin Bieber is holding a contest wherein fans make their own video version of his song "Boyfriend," and the winners' entries will be featured in Bieber's upcoming NBC special. The songs submitted are pretty much what you'd expect -- girls taking the serious route, trying in earnest to win. There's one response, though, that's far and away the greatest thing that has happened on the Internet in a while. Contest winners will be announced June 21, and there's almost no way the above entry will win, but it won the Internet, so everything's alright. Check out some of our favorite moments from the video below.Read More
where does he get those wonderful toys
Our Adorable Past
An Anonymous-branded message threatening Sony and a handful of celebrities has surfaced and calls for attacks on the target parties as retaliation for their collective support of SOPA. The message announces that Anonymous will "destroy [Sony's] network," and has "declared that [their] fury will be brought upon...Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian, and Taylor Swift," for their grievous crime. Now, I've said it before and I'll say it again: Releasing a video announcing an Anonymous attack doesn't necessarily make said Anonymous attack real, but this one seems to be gaining some traction.Read More
Today in things that make us scream incoherently
Just like I predicted on several occasions, YouTube's over-the-top, self-defensive copyright policy has been purposefully abused on a large scale in order to trick YouTube into haphazardly removing videos it had no business being worried about. A currently unknown person registered with the username iLCreation, hopped on YouTube and claimed copyright to each and every Justin Beiber music video. What do you think YouTube did? Took the copyright notifications of an exceedingly famous artist's every video 100% seriously and shut down Beiber's entire Vevo channel without asking for any sort of proof of the claims. As if that weren't enough, a similar attack affected Rihanna, Lady Gaga and Bruno Mars. It makes sense that YouTube enacts their policy this way in order to protect themselves, but this really lays bare how ridiculously extreme that policy is. If the process hadn't been automated and they had given even one second's thought to the situation, you'd think they might come to the conclusion that "Hey, about 5 pop superstars are participating in copyright infringement against one dude and he just noticed and thought to do something about it now, all at once? Hey, wait a minute...." Except that YouTube's all-complaints-are-true, automated copyright policy kept them from arriving at that second sentence.Read More
