Disney Animation has been a cornerstone of culture for almost a century now, and it’s amazing how well this stuff still holds up. People still go to Disney World, buy Cinderella merchandise, and see remakes of these stories.

What better way to appreciate how far this animation has come — or hasn’t — than by enjoying a supercut featureing all of Disney's feature-length animated movies. From Snow White to Zootopia, “The Evolution of Disney Animation (1937-2016)" highlights the movements and trends in Disney, when it works and when it doesn’t. There are some forgotten movies and some stone cold classics, but you’ll be floored by how good and innovative the early animation still looks. However, If you feel a slight dip in the 80s and late-90s, sit tight, the goods are on their way.

If you need to get your news, you could do worse than The Onion, a new poll shows.

According to Morning Consult, “a media and technology company at the intersection of politics, policy, Wall Street, and business strategy,” the satirical newspaper The Onion, which recently ran the headline “Report: Bananas Still Most Popular Fruit For Pretending To Receive Phone Call” is more credible than Infowars, which recently ran the headline “The Shocking Proof That Multiculturalism Has Failed.” No surprise here: The Onion headline is true.

In a shocking upset to conspiracy theorists and screaming men around the globe, 18 percent of people polled considered The Onion (again, the paper put together for laughs) credible, while only 17 percent considered InfoWars credibe. Even more shocking is our new Chief Strategist to the White House Steve Bannon’s former stomping ground, Breitbart, is only considered 19 percent credible. People aren’t just finding white supremacy very helpful these days.

Of course, as the poll points out, this might be affected by the fact that people haven’t heard of Breitbart or Infowars.

“Credibility was significantly lower for far-right sites such as Breitbart and InfoWars, but both were also hampered by being largely unknown. Forty-two percent of people said they “never heard of” Breitbart, and 49 percent said the same about InfoWars. Twenty-six percent said Breitbart was not credible, while 21 percent said the same of InfoWars. Breitbart and InfoWars did better with Republican men, with 32 percent and 27 percent respectively saying the sites were credible.”

You’re still probably better off choosing The Onion. Check out this headline from the other day. Topical!

If there’s one thing Star Wars fans do, it’s argue. Who could win in a fight, Darth Vader or Darth Maul? Who’s stronger, Boba Fett or IG-88? Who wore it better, Princess Leia or R2-D2?

They could go on and on across the galaxy — and by galaxy, we mean internet.

But there’s one argument that needs to be put to rest: Are Daisy Ridley from Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Felicity Jones from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story the same person?


Appearing MTV After Hours, Felicity Jones shot a quick PSA as to why these two brown-haired, British women are not the same person, despite what you may have heard. She also throws out a pretty solid spoiler for any annoying fan conspiracy theorists out there.

You’ve got to check this out.

Look, it's been proven time and time agan: Listen to your girlfriends. It's really easy. If you listen to them, gross things won't happen. If you don't listen to them a bunch of gross stuff explodes in your face and she writes about it on Twitter.

No one wants that 

That’s the story of Twitter user Sarah Gailey, who politely asked her boyfriend not to touch a small plastic egg. What was the outcome? Well, they broke up, she wrote about it on Twitter, and he’s embarrassed. Don't be that guy. Listen to your girlfriends.

Game of the Day: Lebron James and the Cavs Got Tired of Winning So They Started Flipping Bottles

We’ve all been there. When you’re being paid a couple million dollars to play a ball game, but you’re winning so hard that you get bored and start flipping bottles.

Well, maybe that’s just a LeBron James thing.

Last night, while the Cleveland Cavaliers were blowing out the New York Knicks, Lebron James got tired of watching his team destroy and started flipping bottles with his teammates on the sidelines. Sure, this may not have been the appropriate time, and, hey, it might’ve been totally disrespectful to the other team and their fans and his fans and basketball and sportsmanship, but whatever flipping bottles is fun.

Twitter loved it, by the way, as its kind of hard not to. Check out the best reactions.

“Wow. What an awful year 2016 has been," says everyone always. Everyone except the celebrities, YouTube Stars, and living memes of YouTube’s 2016 Rewind.

This is a packed event filled with references to everything that happened this year, except the really, really bad stuff. Well, there's a reference to Bowie passing, but that's it. It's all good times from here on out. Let’s see what we’ve got here:

  1. The Rock
  2. The guy water bottle flipping guy
  3. PewDiePie
  4. Dude Perfect
  5. Something called “I Has Cupquake”
  6. The dude that does magic but covers his mouth electrical tape
  7. The starts of this thing that has over 2 million views



  8. Seth Meyers
  9. Daniel from Damn, Daniel
  10. Carpool Karaoke
  11. Colorful lighting
  12. Pokémon Go
  13. The Slow Mo Guys
  14. Flash Mobs
  15. MUCH, MUCH MORE

Look if your video went viral last year and you’re not in this thing, it’s time to get a new agent. Yeah, I’m talking to you, Misha. Where you at? 45-million views. WHERE YOU AT?

Like everything on YouTube, it’s a real mix of things that are annoying, entertaining, ridiculously cheery, and downright confusing. But that’s what the internet is about, and honestly, it’s better than the other half of the internet, which is startlingly depressing.

Silent night. Holy night. Artificial Intelligence, right? Sort of.

Look, we all know that eventually artificial intelligence will replace humanity. There’s nothing we can do to stop that. But it would seem that researchers at the University of Toronto are looking to speed things along.

Inverse reports that in a test to see how well A.I. could master the feeling the of holiday cheer and yuletide sentiment, the researchers forced a computer program to look at a picture of a Christmas tree and write a song about it. Not only are they proving that A.I. can write songs — which explains Coldplay — but also that it can capture the feelings associated with the holidays, decidedly human feelings.

via Reddit

Well sort of. The lyrics don’t instill a lot of faith in our new A.I. overlords:

“Lots to decorate the room/The Christmas tree is filled with flowers.

I swear it is Christmas Eve/I hope that is what you say.

The Best Christmas present in the world is a blessing/

I’ve always been there for the rest of our lives.

A hundred and a half hour ago/ I’m glad to meet you.

I can hear the music coming from the hall/ A fair tale

A Christmas tree. There are lots and lots and lots of flowers.”

Of course this could be code, which we will only decipher until after it’s too late, especially the cryptic line “I’ve always been there for the rest of our lives.” In fact, what we’re probably hearing here is not a Christmas song, but some sort of National Anthem for the United States of Artificial Intelligence.

We are in so much trouble.
