OK Go Smash Guitars Like Fireworks In Their Higher-Speed New Video

Even though it plays for over 4 minutes, the new video from Rube Goldberg Machine–experts OK Go was filmed in just 4.two seconds.

Making use of higher-speed cameras, the band filmed a entire bunch of miniature explosions and other forms of chaos in the blink of an eye. They even engineered a flip book to accurately lip-synch their song “The One Moment.”

“We triggered 325 events with incredibly precise digital triggers to produce the choreography, which unfolds over a tiny far more than 4 seconds,” director and band member Damian Kulash, Jr. said about the video. “We shot with incredibly high-speed cameras, which allows us to stretch these few seconds over the full length of the song.”

These are the guys who first went viral with a perfectly choreographed treadmill dance, so it’s not surprising they’ve upped the ante by blowing up water balloons, jumping into streams of paint, and smashing guitars with remote explosions — all in under five seconds. These dudes are pros.


Vince Staples Practically Gets Run Over, Like, 50 Times In GTA’s New Video

Fresh off releasing his stellar EP Prima Donna, Vince Staples has teamed up with Miami DJ duo GTA for the fresh, kinetic collab “Little Bit of This.”

The track’s music video dropped right now (September 15), and I’m imagining the initial pitch meeting for it went anything like this: “How about we abandon Vince Staples in the middle of nowhere and have a bunch of old vehicles furiously zoom about him so fans will completely fear for his life and wellbeing???”

Indeed, poor Vince is smack in the middle of the action, searching admirably calm although at least a dozen black BMWs kick up dust and rip donuts about him. But no matter — the Extended Beach rapper is also busy spitting rapid-fire verses to notice. It is chaotic, confident, but at least it is controlled chaos.

“A Tiny Bit of This” seems on GTA’s debut album, Great Occasions Ahead, which arrives October 7 and also features Tinashe and Tunji Ige.


Rebecca Black’s Comeback Single Sounds Absolutely nothing Like ‘Friday’

It’s probably been a minute given that you heard the name Rebecca Black, but the “Friday” singer is back with a brand-new single — on a Friday, no less. But never anticipate to hate-listen your way via this 1 “The Wonderful Divide” sounds practically nothing like “Friday.” It really is reflective of the singer-songwriter’s more mature pop style.

Black, now 19, told Entertainment Weekly that “The Great Divide” — the song has two versions: a stripped-down ballad and an EDM-tinged remix — is 1 of the most meaningful songs she’s ever written. “As I’ve grown up, I’ve realized there are certain individuals I’ve let into in my life that are not wholesome for me,” she said. “This song is about letting those people go and feeling power in realizing that is the best choice for you.”

With over 30 songs already recorded, Black hopes to independently release an EP this fall. “We’ve got some stuff that’s a tiny far more electronic, but I enjoy a lot of indie music, so we have stuff that is in that vein as well,” she mentioned.

When Black released the overly Auto-Tuned “Friday” back in 2011, the video became a viral sensation, hitting 48 million views in its initial week alone — but not for the young singer’s talent. Viewers relentlessly ridiculed Black, who was just 13 at the time, on the web and in genuine-life. Some even sent her death threats. Nonetheless, Black’s spirit in no way appeared to waver, nor did her passion for music. When she turned 17, the tenacious singer-songwriter moved to Los Angeles to try and jumpstart a true music career.

“‘Friday’ was a element of my life, but I do not know if I would say it is a component of me as an artist,” Black told EW. “So many men and women know me just by that song, but I’m significantly far more than that.”

Listen, Rebecca, as extended as you know which seat to sit in these days, we’re fine.


Surprise Statistics: Twentysomethings Like Maci Have More Unplanned Pregnancies Than Teens

By Amy Kramer of the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy

Maci definitely didn’t see her third pregnancy coming: In the course of tonight’s Teen Mom OG premiere, the young mother thought she had gained weight (understandable given that after two children and just developing up, your physique goes by means of lots of adjustments). That was the case, but not the whole story.

And when her fiancé Taylor asked her if she may possibly be pregnant once again (relive the scene under), she thinks he’s crazy.

“Have you lost your mind?” she declared. “We’d have two little ones beneath two. We’d need a bigger auto, a bigger house….” He suggested she take a pregnancy test, and she recalled her encounter with Bentley.

“I took a pregnancy test when I was 16 and didn’t cry then, but if this 1 says positive…” she began. Needless to say, the test was optimistic.

Ladies ages 20-24 are 4 occasions much more probably to have an unintended pregnancy than girls ages 15-17. To place it another way: Amongst 15-17 year-olds, only about 20 out of each 1,000 girls have an unplanned pregnancy each and every year. For ladies 20-24, it’s 81 out of 1,000. If you consider about it, that tends to make sense considering that women in their 20s have more sex than teens do.

We all know about teen pregnancy, but unplanned pregnancy among young ladies can be just as discombobulating. Often even much more so. Usually occasions, girls in their early 20s are just studying how to live on their own, they’re not in committed relationships and they’re not financially steady. Not exactly the best circumstances for bringing a child into the planet. Maci’s scenario is different. Despite the fact that she was not organizing for this pregnancy, she’s in a strong connection, she’s got a steady earnings and she has encounter getting a parent currently.

The bottom line is that unplanned pregnancy takes place a lot. Amongst single ladies in their 20s, seven out of 10 pregnancies are unplanned. And the only way to avoid adding a brand-new addition, in addition to not obtaining sex at all, is to use birth handle meticulously and consistently. Find out what methods may well operate for you at Bedsider.org. And tune in to the next episode of Teen Mom OG on Monday at ten/9c to see how everybody else reacts to Maci’s news!

Peter Parker 3. (Tom Holland) took the stage at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday to debut a first look at Spider-Man: Homecoming, Marvel Studios and Sony’s upcoming Spidey film.

Of course Zendaya’s connection to Spidey goes even deeper than that. “My first date I ever went on was to Spider-Man,” she mentioned, presumably referring to the Andrew Garfield starrer, The Remarkable Spider-Man. “It’s particular. I went when I just turned 16, lastly was allowed to date. It was my 1st date, and it was to see Spider-Man. So full circle!”

The Homecoming footage shown at Comic-Con has yet to be released, but these who were in attendance have described it as John Hughes meets Freaks and Geeks. Zendaya’s character in distinct appears to be channeling Linda Cardellini’s Lindsay Weir as Peter’s friend who may possibly or may possibly not be crushing on him.

“Absolutely everyone, honestly, is so significantly like their characters,” Zendaya said. “My character is super dry and awkward. It is fantastic because it’s who I am in actual life, so I do not really feel like I have to act also much.”

Director Todd Haynes believes adore can blossom in the most improbable situations. Take his new movie, Carol. The film tells the story of an affair amongst the title character, a married 1950s socialite (played by Cate Blanchett), and Therese, an aspiring young photographer (played by Rooney Mara) who is functioning in the toy section of a New York City department retailer. They meet even though Carol is buying a Christmas present for her daughter.

Haynes tells Fresh Air’s Terry Gross that the connection the girls make in the shop is a “curious leap” that requires them each “out of their worlds.”

“I think there is anything so lovely about that becoming the way really like usually starts — in the most irrational, inexplicable sort of situations where you place your self out there and you hold going, ‘What am I undertaking? Why am I here?’ ” Haynes says. “But you preserve going back. Each girls do it.”

Phyllis Nagy adapted the screenplay for Carol from the Patricia Highsmith novel The Value of Salt. In her early 20s, Nagy met and befriended Highsmith, a lesbian writer who spent significantly of her adult life in Europe. Nagy says the story is extremely forward thinking, specially contemplating it was originally published in 1952.

“As far as I’m aware, it was the initial relatively mainstream lesbian novel to be published that integrated not only a relatively content ending, but it did not include the death of 1 of its lesbian heroines, or 1 of them going to an insane asylum or nunnery,” Nagy says.

Nagy notes that Highsmith initially published The Value of Salt below a pseudonym, perhaps due to the fact the novel was so private in nature. “It was difficult for her to take ownership of it as a writer for numerous years,” Nagy says. “I was never ever certain if that meant she just did not like it, or if she was so personally attached to the novel that she could not afford psychically, or psychologically, to claim ownership of it till the late ’80s.”

Interview Highlights

On Therese and Carol

Nagy: Therese Belivet … is at a stage in her life, early 20s, where she is searching for the keys to her future. She’s a bit reticent she’s immensely curious, a bit like a sponge, and responds to everything with an alarming honesty — much like Pat Highsmith herself, whom I knew. So Therese is her alter ego.

Carol Aird is older, married … and she is a melancholy creature. She is not a content-go-lucky socialite. The situations of her life do not sit properly with her, or comfortably.

On the components of Highsmith’s novel that Nagy most wanted to maintain in the screen adaptation

Nagy: Two issues. A single was the radical way in which Patricia Highsmith addressed the sexuality of the protagonists in the novel as organic, as breathing — no certain believed given to what sexuality means to these women — but also an insistence on ignoring, much more or significantly less, the naysayers, which was one more aspect of the novel that was profoundly radical. The second part of the factors that I feel makes the novel actually resonate even today is Highsmith’s specific view of motherhood and what tends to make a excellent mother.

On how The Cost of Salt was received compared to Highsmith’s other novels

Nagy: I think that Highsmith was very surprised by the effect that The Cost of Salt had on publication. And even in the years, four or five years, following its publication, she would get the most wonderful letters from individuals — of course, they had been addressed to [her pseudonym,] Claire Morgan — talking about how the book had touched them profoundly, changed their lives. She wasn’t utilised to that. Surely no 1 was going to say that [her 1950 book] Strangers on a Train changed their lives in really that way, or even [her 1955 book] The Talented Mr. Ripley.

On what Nagy learned from Highsmith about getting a lesbian in the ’50s

Nagy: I feel what I learned from Pat about getting gay in the ’50s, and from pals of hers that she introduced me to, it was a window on a really specific subset of lesbians. Pat herself, I always like to say, was like the studio boss of lesbians in that she was appropriate there chasing women about couches and throwing them down onto beds. … I thought at first that she was probably just pumping up her own reputation as a lesbian stud, but, in reality, her peers — the girls that she chased, numerous of whom truly did remain friendly with her — confirmed those stories. And these females had been all vaguely of the Carol Aird set.

So I felt as if I knew specifically who Carol Aird was. … I consider the married girls suited Patricia Highsmith, who famously did not like to reside with men and women or have that kind of attachment that most affordable folks soon after a time anticipate. … With married girls, that was hardly ever attainable. So they have been, I’d say, the Euro-[equivalent] of wealthy, suburban, mostly married and secretive ladies who most likely, in 1952, are on prototypes of antidepressants and drank a lot and smoked a lot, like Highsmith herself.

On Highsmith trying to date men at a single point

Nagy: The unwholesome truth about Pat is she was a lesbian who did not quite a lot get pleasure from becoming about other ladies. So the attempt to dabble with a single man seriously, and probably a few other folks along the way, was to just see if she could be into guys in that way, since she so significantly much more preferred their company. Pat would’ve been a excellent member of [Mad Men’s agency] Sterling-Cooper … and genuinely, I feel, that was the formative psychological trait … that she actually did not like women. She liked to have sex with them and she liked them to go home and shut up, but she much preferred the business of males.

On regardless of whether Haynes had reservations about getting a man directing a film about lesbians

Haynes: No, I did not. Or at least, what I felt was this was a tremendous, gorgeous chance for me to discover this story as a gay man and as somebody who has been in really like and who’s been in Therese’s shoes. … I felt like I had that frequent and universal and poignant knowledge in my personal history and my personal memory and that is what’s so unsentimentally and beautifully described in the novel to commence with. … And I have to say, so several of my dearest, closest buddies in the globe are gay females and this, in numerous ways, was sort of like: “This one’s for all these [girls] who’ve meant so much in my life.”
