Burning Man Can Be Seen From Space (Photos)

Burning Man is a one-of-a-kind festival that takes place in the desert in Nevada, attracting tens of thousand of people every year. It is well-known for its extraordinary art installations, outrageous costumes and interesting transportation methods. Maxar Technologies just released some satellite images of the festival on Twitter, and they're amazing. Not only is the festival 100% waste and money free, it's also a perfectly symmetrical miniature city that's build out of nothing. And we want to go. Real bad.

Request of the Day: Singer Rebecca Ferguson Would Only Sing at Trump’s Inauguration Under One Condition

“The Trump Inauguration Party for Freedom That’s Not Sad, But Rather Good Bash at the Beach 2017” has had a hard time finding performers. Between Elton John giving them a flat out “book Ted Nugent,” a woman quitting the Mormon Tabernacle choir because she saw performing the inauguration as “endorsing tyranny and fascism,” and the team just going ahead and booking a bunch of wedding bands, it’s starting to look like DJ Barron’s going to be pumping the mega mix from his iPod Touch all night. 

Well, things haven’t changed much.

Apparently, the Trump team has asked Rebecca Ferguson a chart-topping singer-songwriter and X-Factor runner-up to perform.

After being asked, Ferguson had one request: She would sing the Billie Holiday song “Strange Fruit,” which, as TIME puts it, “contains gut-wrenching imagery of black lynching victims swinging from Southern tree limbs in the early 20th century. The phrase ‘strange fruit’ refers to ‘black bodies swinging in the southern breeze,’ and the song is widely considered one of the major anti-racist songs of the 20th century.”

Ferguson made her response to the Trump team public on Twitter

“I've been asked and this is my answer. If you allow me to sing "strange fruit" a song that has huge historical importance, a song that was blacklisted in the United States for being too controversial. A song that speaks to all the disregarded and down trodden black people in the United States. A song that is a reminder of how love is the only thing that will conquer all the hatred in this world, then I will graciously accept your invitation and see you in Washington. Best Rebecca X”

Ferguson certainly knows how to make a statement.

When the Internet uses its powers for good, the results are incredible.

It’s been an difficult year for Angela McElhiney, an understatement to say the least. Her 15 year-old son Nathan committed suicide in October. To remember him, she cherishes a video of Nathan singing “Wayfaring Stranger,” taken one month before his death.

However, because the video was taken in a high school gymnasium, the audio quality is poor to say the least, muffled by the audience’s restless noise.

"It was such a bad recording and I just wanted to be able to hear him better," Angela told CNN. "Right now, I feel like it's very therapeutic because I feel like it's the journey he's taking.”

So Angela turned to Internet. After posting the video to Reddit, she asked if anyone could help fix the audio or, at the very least, begin the path to cleaning it up. An hour later, she started getting new mixes with cleaner audio.

In total, she received about 20 versions of the clip.

"I never expected so much kindness and so many people taking time out of their day," she said. “We can't express our gratitude enough.”

However, as CNN reported:

The first Christmas without Nathan has been hard for McElhiney and her family and this has been a welcome distraction for her. She tried to thank everyone who responded to her post, but fell behind when the number of comments grew into the thousands.


hackers attack sony music twitter tweets lie that britney spears is dead

Twitter, don’t you know that you’re toxic?

Yesterday, hackers found their way onto Sony Music Global’s Twitter account and left a harsh post for a world that just isn’t in the mood for this type of thing. I mean, come on, enough with it already.

Of course, of all the fake news this year, this hacked account was among the poorest. Without even a though to capitalization – let alone syntax — the hackers’ tweet wasn’t really fooling anyone and just being kind of big jerks about everything. Give us a break with "dead by accident."

Sony pulled the tweet and released a follow-up, assuring us that Britney is fine and blaming the hacking group OurMine.

According to the The Daily Dot, “OurMine is the hacking group that took control of several Twitter accounts just last week, including those from the NFL, Netflix, and Marvel. The group also hacked and released the stupidly simple password of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s account back in June.”

Maybe you didn’t hear us: Leave. Britney. Alone.
