Thousands Of People Walked Into A Building And Started Singing…So Amazing!

With all of the rising hatred around the world right now, it feels impossible to relate to other people.

If the comments sections on social media posts are any indication of how people really feel about each other, then it seems like we are doomed to experience fewer and fewer meaningful human connections until we separate ourselves completely.

But as the people of Choir! Choir! Choir! demonstrate, sometimes the only thing you need to connect with other people is a common interest, like singing your heart out in unison.

In 2011, Daveed Goldman and Nobu Adilman started the choir as a weekly get-together in Ontario, Canada, for people to sing pop music and enjoy each other’s company.

But they never anticipated that the number of members would reach into the thousands.

They came into the spotlight very quickly, going on to perform at several live events with musicians like Patti Smith and Tegan and Sara.

Now the choir meets twice a week at a tavern in downtown Toronto, beginning each session by handing out lyric sheets to everyone and mastering a song by the end of the night.

The best part is that they record all of their sessions for your viewing (and listening) pleasure. Trust me, you’re gonna want to experience their music for yourself.

The diversity of their many voices shows that amazing things can happen when different people work together.

And their latest performance in the Luminato Festival at the Hearn Generating Station in Toronto with 1,500 of them singing “Hallelujah” is nothing short of epic.

If you’re dying to hear more and want to follow all of their awe-inspiring performances, you can find them on their Facebook and YouTube pages. If you’re in the Toronto area, you can even join them!

At the beginning of the Country Music Awards tonight, Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley brought many to laughter with their hilarious song “Obamacare by Morning.” Many thought it was hysterically funny, but of course not everybody was on board:!/heynickyb/status/398262710879936512!/AdolfHitta/status/398255922784387072!/eljefe421/status/398255906762555392

These Vintage Ads Prove Just How Far Technology Has Come… WOW.

You know how your grandpa talks about how they don’t make things like they used to? Well, he is absolutely right. With our technological advances, these ads for these products make the people of the 1960’s look like cavemen.

It’s hard to believe that some of these products were cutting-edge in their time. WOW: 

1.) I’m sure that car is worth a ton of money now.

2.) Does anyone even have a radio anymore?

3.) Look at that space aged refrigerator!

4.) I can’t think of a better way to listen to music.

5.) I can’t even get a pack of gum for $1.69 nowadays!

6.) Back when smoking wasn’t unhealthy.

7.) She can do it all!

8.) This was a flat screen back then.

9.) Those look like some quality products.

10.) Okay, I’m going to be real…I kind of want that motorcycle.

Man, I wish I had a time machine so I could go back and get some of those. Share this post if you remember seeing or even using some of these products.

Premiere: Hot Sugar Does Terrible Things In New “Sinkies” Video

“You can get away with horrific crimes in broad daylight without getting caught if you smile politely,” he tells BuzzFeed Music.

Nick Koenig a.k.a. Hot Sugar’s new video for his song “Sinkies” is a drug-fueled trip down a Harmony Korine-esque wormhole.

Nick Koenig a.k.a. Hot Sugar Shore Fire Media

It’s ultimately about love, lost connections, and how we communicate and survive in the age of the internet. But it starts with some good old-fashioned threats of dog homicide.

“When we were filming, during one of the takes, a business man came up to us and said ‘I have a bulldog just like him,’ Hot Sugar tells BuzzFeed Music via email. “The camera was across the street so there was no way of assuming that what we were doing was for a film. When he realized the dog I was holding was attached to a terrified old lady’s arm (while she held up a wad of cash in the other hand), he looked back at me disappointingly and continued his walk down the street shaking his head. You can get away with horrific crimes in broad daylight without getting caught if you smile politely.”

The lady ultimately pays up and the dog — a Frenchie named Morticia that, Hot Sugar says, is “the price of a small car” — goes thankfully unharmed.

From there the video gets weirder and more warped. “Sinkies is a word my ex-girlfriend came up with to describe the feeling of having your heart drop into your stomach — whether it be caused by jealousy, defeat or just plain depression,” Hot Sugar says.


The track is a stuttering, jittery, ethereal mess that will likely give you the sinkies. Typical Hot Sugar, basically. His unique production style — his songs are made entirely out of sounds he records on the street and builds audio collages with the samples — has won him lots of influential fans, ILoveMakonnen among them. “He’s a bonafide musical genius,” Broad City music supervisor Matt FX Feldman, who uses Hot Sugar’s music on BC, tells BuzzFeed Music. Perhaps that’s why he’s already, in his young career, the subject of a documentary, Hot Sugar’s Cold World, which is an official selection at this year’s SXSW Film Festival and is described as “a fly-on-the-wall look into the life of a modern-day Mozart.”

On “Sinkies” Hot Sugar says he worked in the sounds of an ATM machine, a dollhouse burning, the wind blowing over his family tombstone, and a girl blowing out candles seductively, among other things.


“Since I wanted to make a sad song I also used Elliot Smith’s piano (at my friend’s studio in L.A.). Also, I lit bottle rockets and other fireworks indoors with Martin Starr about a year ago. A lot of the drum crashes are slow motion fireworks exploding,” Hot Sugar says.

Watch Hot Sugar’s “Sinkies” — premiering exclusively on BuzzFeed Music — in full below. Hot Sugar’s new album God’s Hand is out now.

To those music experts who don’t know shit…

Is there anyone who isn’t mad at Drake Bell? Update: Fans show support!/katyperry/status/220028733816442881

That’s what pop princess Katy Perry tweeted yesterday after the following anti-Katy Perry tweets appeared yesterday in the Twitter feed of actor Drake Bell:

Whoever was posting at Bell’s account yesterday also slammed Bell’s former employer, Nickelodeon:

This morning, Bell announced that he’s the victim of a hacking:

Have I been hacked??!!

— Drake Bell (@DrakeBell) July 3, 2012

Seems my account was hacked and some haters had some things to say

— Drake Bell (@DrakeBell) July 3, 2012

Looks like I was hacked! Since getting new management a lot of old representation have passwords to my Facebook and Twitter

— Drake Bell (@DrakeBell) July 3, 2012

He’s actually a Katy Perry fan:

Just for the record I'm actually a fan of Katy Perry. Someone must have hacked me while they were bored

— Drake Bell (@DrakeBell) July 3, 2012

But in the course of defending himself against Perry, Bell tweeted this:

I wouldn't randomly bash @katyperry….bieber however lol

— Drake Bell (@DrakeBell) July 3, 2012

Oh no he didn’t. But, yes, he did.

Now Katy Perry and Nickelodeon are the least of Bell’s concerns:

Yeah I always liked Josh better…. “@DrakeBell: I wouldn't randomly bash @katyperry….bieber however lol”

— Justin Bieber ♔ (@knowingjustin) July 3, 2012

@DrakeBell: I wouldn't randomly bash @katyperry….bieber however lol” it's okay to be jealous its not your fault your ugly

— Rhiannon (@sexyenoughbiebs) July 3, 2012

@KennyHamilt0n @DrakeBell @katyperry idiot he need a slap right in his face

— Shelly (@DatingAlfredo) July 3, 2012

Exit question: Between Justin Bieber’s 24 million followers and Katy Perry’s 22 million followers, is there anyone on Twitter who isn’t mad at Drake Bell today?


Bell has deleted the anti-Katy Perry tweets from his account.

YouTube star Shane Dawson goes to bat for Bell:

@katyperry @DrakeBell ps.when i hung out with drake we talked about you and all he had was great things to say. im positive he was hacked.

— Shane Dawson (@shanedawson) July 3, 2012

“Drake Bell”  and “#DrakestersLoveDrakeBell” were both trending earlier today:

I love Drake Bell because I LOVE good music #DrakestersLoveDrakeBell

— DBSupporterForeverUK (@dbsupporter_uk) July 3, 2012

@DrakeBell Don't forget I love you so much. #DrakestersLoveDrakeBell ^^

— Allysson Molina (@VasHappenin1_D_) July 3, 2012

No matter how bad it gets, Drake always prevails in the end. Just ask Josh.

What This Dog Did When She Met A Bunch Of Kittens Is Too Perfect For Words

You know what’s cuter than a mama cat and all of her little kittens? Said kittens being introduced by Mom to her adorable dog friend in a precious scenario that’s set to emotionally charged piano music. If that sounds too amazing to be real, suit up, because this video is a thing that actually exists.

This cat befriended a local pup way back when, and after she gave birth to a litter of curious little ones, she knew that she had to introduce the whole gang. The dog was a little too excited at first, but after a gentle bop on the nose by Mom, the canine quickly became the cool aunt who would help them sneak wine at Christmas dinner one day.

(via The Dodo)

Here’s the thing. My heart really can’t handle all of this, and I need to lay down. If you’re not already a useless puddle of puppy-loving goo, go ahead and watch this 30 more times. You know you want to.

And if this isn’t you the entire time, you’re not doing it right.

New and Noteworthy: Unspoken’s Sophomore album, Follow Through

540 380 100 50 true false false true

Artist: Unspoken

Location: Nashville, TN

Genre: Christian

Members: Chad Mattson-Vocals | Mike Gomez-Guitar | Ariel Munoz-Drums, Cajon and percussion | Jon Lowry-Bass, Guitar, keys and BG vocals | Don Eanes – Keys and BG vocals

Bio: When you ask the guys in Unspoken what it is that their audiences most connect with, they’ll bring it down to a single word. But it’s not a word born of the smooth, soul-edged pop sound they’ve built of skilled musicianship, adventurous production and complex vocal harmonies. It’s also not something directly rooted in the international influences of the band (guitarist Mike Gomez hails from Dominican Republic and drummer Ariel Munoz from Puerto Rico). It isn’t even a quality anchored in the success of their first Centricity Music album which sold more than 100,000 copies, spawning four top ten singles and a number one as well. And it’s not a byproduct of their recent success as a headlining act, or their pick for a slot (alongside David Crowder and Steven Curtis Chapman) on the 2016 K-Love Christmas Tour.

With the release of “Follow Through,” Unspoken’s second full-length project for Centricity Music, the band seems to have found a place of new freedom to push the boundaries of their trademark sound, mixing in horns and electronic elements in fresh ways without altering the core of their musical identity. Tag-team produced by Seth Mosely (2014 SESAC Christian Songwriter of the Year), Tedd T. (For King & Country, Mute Math) and Chris Stevens (Toby Mac, Michael W. Smith), Follow Through evidences a forward leap of artistic evolution from the last record, blending hip hop, soul, pop and folk influences to tell the story of the season of life the band members have found themselves in over the last couple of years.

Get Follow Through on iTunes now! Tracklist:

  1. Higher
  2. The Cure
  3. Open the Clouds
  4. Miracle
  5. Life in the Death of Me

Rihanna celebrates 2012 MTV VMA nominations in her own classy way!/MTV/status/230286861967441921
