Animals are Better than Humans – They’re better Wingmen

A crow has been caught catching a ride on the back of a bald eagle in mid-flight. The cheeky ride was captured by amateur photographer Phoo Chan in Seaback, Washington. “It was as if it was taking a short break and at the same time a free ride. What’s more surprising was the eagle didn’t seem to mind and kept flying as if nothing happened,” MailOnline quotes Chan as saying.

“I think the crow decided to land on the eagle because the eagle did not respond to its harassment so it landed briefly and then left. Eventually the crow flew away and the eagle continued to hunt for its breakfast.”

Chan said the birds went off in different directions but reckons that after their brief encounter they had become friends.

Venus and Jupiter are hooking up tonight!!! (Science is Awesome)

According to NPR, Venus and Jupiter are only converging into a small area of the Earth’s sky. NASA says the two bright planets will be “a jaw-dropping one-third of a degree apart.”

That distance is smaller than the width of a full moon, as seen from Earth’s surface.

“You’ll be able to hide the pair not just behind the palm of your outstretched hand, but behind your little pinky finger,” NASA says.

And unlike some other astronomical phenomena, this convergence should be easily visible: Just look to the west around sunset. That’s where you’ll find Venus and Jupiter, if the sky is relatively clear.

Conjunctions between Venus and Jupiter are far from rare events,” notes Space.com. But the site adds that tonight’s “unusually close” conjunction is worth seeing — and it adds that this is both the closest and the last pairing between the two planets in the current 24-year cycle.

Also, Venus and Jupiter were my favorite characters on Sailor Moon.

Artsy Fartsy – Best Buddies & AIDS Art (Keith Haring)

keithharing_AIDS

Keith Haring was well known as an internationally famed artist as well as a social activist during his 31 years of life. Keith Haring was a talented pop artist who dedicated his career to bringing gay art and AIDS awareness to the masses. While many in the art world criticized the shop’s commercialism, Haring remained committed to sharing his work affordably with a diverse audience. He received a great deal of support from his friend and mentor, fellow pop artist Andy Warhol.

After being diagnosed with AIDS in 1988, Haring established the Keith Haring Foundation to raise money and provide art to AIDS organizations and children’s programs. Haring dedicated his art and the two last years of his life to creating awareness and fostering understanding about AIDS. In 2008, two of his brightly colored sculptures were added to UNAIDS “Art for AIDS” collection. Haring’s brief but intense career was only the beginning of his growth as a gay icon. His colorful, provocative, and socially-conscious images form an important part of the history of gay symbolism.

The Day the Internet Broke by Ryan Fu (RIP Michael Jackson)

WRITTEN BY RYAN FU @FU_BEATZ

It was just a normal Thursday, which we were halfway thru the week as we couldn’t wait for the weekend. Angello and I were banging out sets as usual on Bedford when we heard the sad news. Queen on the Scene ran up on us in a frantic pace telling us that Michael Jackson was dead.

First off, if you don’t know, who Queen on the Scene is? She is a homeless woman who is a personal amateur bodyguard for celebrities as they go to the doctor’s office. She offers her services to protect the celebrity from annoying poporazzi then she gets a donation, if she doesn’t get a donation, she doesn’t hesitates to shit on the celebrity for being a tightwad. Most of the when she came up to us talking about celebrity news we normally thought she was crazy but this time she was on point. Apparently, Mr. Jackson was carted off in an ambulance in the morning for health complications but he wasn’t dead yet. I tell Queen to calm down because he wasn’t dead yet but we still had to investigate it for ourselves.

I made a couple of calls finding out that MJ was heading to UCLA Medical center. But before we head over there, I spotted Flavor Flav walking the down the street which you couldn’t miss him with his big clock necklace. We all run down the street to get Flavor as we all start taking photos and video of him. He was loving the attention, showing off his famous grille having a blast with us until Queen showed up to do her act telling Flavor the horrible news that MJ was possibly dead. Flav stopped in his tracks hugging Queen asking us if it was true or not. We tell him the story that he got rushed to the hospital but he wasn’t dead yet. But it was evident that the news really affected him like it did Queen, so we decided to go the medical center to see what was going on, taking Queen with us.

When we get there it was already a madhouse as the bad news has already spread around town that MJ was dead as all the news services showed up to UCLA to cover this event. But not also did the press caught wind of MJ’s death, his fans showed up in droves, crowding the entrance of the medical building. A lot of them holding pictures of Michael, some of them with their signs showing their love for the King of Pop. Angello and I started to take pictures and film the pain and chaos surrounding the medical center. Then head of PR of the hospital held a press conference to tell us the bad news.

“Michael Jackson has been pronounced dead on June 25, 2009, at 2:26 pm PT.”

The shit just hit the fan. People were crying and holding each other, hearing the awful news. As Angello and I, tried to get out of the press conference, pushing out way of the crowd so we could upload our photos, I noticed a large contingency of the media filming this little girl holding a Michael Jackson picture in her arms, crying after hearing the bad news. I looked around noticing that this little girl wasn’t the only one that was affected by Jackson’s passing because we all grew up on his music. It was like hearing a good friend of yours just died. It finally hit me that MJ was actually dead and I was in shock like the rest of the masses at UCLA but I still had a job to do, so we find the nearest Starbucks to upload our shit.

That Starbucks was packed with reporters trying to do the same shit we were trying to do but they had the same problem we did trying to send the most important story of the year.

The fucking internet stopped working. Like it literally stopped because of all the traffic of the Michael Jackson news. I tired to check on the latest news on MJ but my phone couldn’t pull up anything. I couldn’t even text or email anyone. The Michael news was so big that it affected the ebb of flow of the net. This was the first time I’ve ever seen that happened before but I guess I should have expected it when someone that had a lot of positive affect on billions of people around the world, would have that kind of power. People wanted to share their thoughts about the man who brought countless of joy in their lives.

We gather our things deciding we should just leave this sad scene, taking Queen back to Bedford. As we past the medical building, we could see the huge crowd of Michael’s fans huddled up together, lighting up candles for the late great Michael Jackson, holding hands as they singing his songs, as once again MJ brings us all together with his music. 

Rest in Peace Michael Joseph Jackson

QUESTION: ARE YOU ACTUALLY CONTRIBUTING TO SOCIETY OR ARE YOU JUST PAYING THE BILLS?

Here, comedian Joe Rogan talks about work and meaning in his own unique style, asking some important (and sometimes uncomfortable) questions about what our purpose is as a society, and as an individual. Aren’t we supposed to be contributing? He asks. Is contributing the same as working? Rogan concludes that these two things are entirely separate, at least in most cases, and has some thought-provoking advice for anyone who is stuck in a job they hate…follow your dreams instead.
