Twitter's #InThe90sWeAsked: Music Edition

Categories: LOL, Twitter, music

The '90s left us with photo proof of questionable fashion and hair choices but even more than that, the '90s left us with a lot of unanswered questions. Lucky for us, the Twitter hashtag #InThe90sWeAsked popped up and let us know we weren't alone with certain thoughts. From beeper inquiries, Rugrats and Alf chatter, and internet dialups woes, we nodded our heads in agreement that there are in fact more unanswered questions than we could've ever imagined.

Being that we are big fans of '90s music in general around these parts, we dove right in to the query pond to fish out our top 9 chuckle worthy '90s questions for your eyes. Hey "children of the 80's," we'll wait while you grab your glasses.

Funniest Straight Outta Compton Tweets

Categories: Rap, Twitter, movies

Express Yourself

If you are a person of a "certain age," the letters NWA mean a dip back into time when one of the hardest rap groups owned your car stereo. Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, MC Ren, and DJ Yella were breaking eardrums, pumping up parties, and crushing competition all while putting Compton on the map and rocking a "parental advisory sticker" on the front of their albums. And don't even get us started on what they did for Jheri curls and Starter jackets! So fast-forward to 2015 and the legendary rap group gets a bio pick and, the nation goes crazy. Over 56 million dollars crazy in fact.

Funniest Tweets From the 2015 BET Awards

Kendrick Lamar kicked the party off "Alrite."
Last year's host of the BET Awards was Chris Rock and we can only imagine attempting to follow him would be pretty rough. Nevertheless, this year's hosts Tracey Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson really did try their best and well, better luck next year boo's. (Although the Sam Smith bit was hilarious.) Right off the bat we have to mention that they finally got it right airing it live for both the east and west coast so bravo on that BET. OK, now let's get down to the dirt.

Taylor Swift Takes a Big Bite Out of Apple

OMG little me did all of that? What? Really? Me?
Holy shite y'all! The power of words prevailed and you'll never believe from who. Why it's little Taylor "oh my goodness gracious I always rock a surprised face" Swift! We're truly surprised and tremendously pleased about the power of this pop tart's pull with her open letter crusade to get Apple (Yeah, that Apple.) to pay artists during free trials. And to cut to the chase here, Swift was victorious. (Insert Taylor Swift "surprised face" here.) The fuck? This is a game changer and it was Taylor Swift who did that? Hmmm....wonder what else she can do? Maybe end global warming? Get J-Lo to stop singing? Bring the TV show Dexter back? Listen, you're not alone with a mind racing with questions. In the midst of an internet explosion, Twitter called upon her angelic penmanship power late last night and we grabbed a few ideas they had in case you wanted to get on board.

Have a Hip-Hop Question for Rachel Dolezal? Just #AskRachel!

Categories: LOL, Twitter, music

Ohhh Rachel, Rachel, Rachel...
Everyone loves an outrageous news story. These stories give people a chance to join in with all walks of life online to voice their opinion and connect with others in their "outrage." Case in point, Rachel Dolezal. The revelation that Dolezal, the NAACP Spokane Washington Branch President, has been posing as a black woman while speaking on behalf of black people sparked plenty of outrage across the country. Then ironically (not really), the tweets flying around on this "taboo" topic went from "how dare she" to "let's ask her ridiculous questions." These questions soon turned into inquiring about "urban" song lyrics and at that point, we were all in.

What in the entire universe of WTF?
Hosted by Broadway darlings Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming, the 69th (lol) annual Tony Awards went down "live" at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Celebrating everything theatre, the stars were dressed to the nines as they settled in to watch awards get dished out in-between musical numbers aplenty.

Funniest Tweets from the 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Categories: LOL, Twitter, comedy

"Live" from Las Vegas and co-hosted by Ludacris and one of our favorite people in life and on Twitter (fall back haters) Chrissy Teigen, the 2015 Billboard Music Awards were once again shown to the west coast THREE HOURS LATE. And no, we won't stop bitching about it until we are on an even playing field with the east coast. Work it out. OK, venting aside. Missing the Mad Men finale meant that you got to see David Lee Roth's happy face along with Van Halen, Taylor Swift winning a shit ton of awards and "stepping out" with Calvin Harris, Mariah Carey probably regretting not jumping on the lip-sync train, Kanye's over editing because ohhh what will Kanye say next, ohhhh he's sooooo scary, and a Simple Minds/Breakfast Club tribute to make your parents (and some of us) feel like they belong.

The New Hamburglar Feels the Wrath of Twitter

Categories: Twitter, comedy

I got your beef right here.
You're really gonna want to "hide yo kids, hide yo wife" on this one, because yesterday McDonald's revealed that one of their M.I.A. mascot's, the Hamburglar, received a makeover. And damn, what a makeover it is! The jury is apparently still out on whether he's sporting Nike Flystepper's or Air Yeezys (we see you 'Burglar!) but either way, we don't care. We're co-signing with Mickey D's choice because this new Hamburglar is certainly a sexy improvement.

Of course social media wasn't silent about voicing their opinions either and exploded when the pic of this steamy beefcake burglar hit the web. When it did, we focused our attention towards some funny mofos to provide a bit of entertainment and what we found was a mixed bag when it came to this thief of beef. While 2015 Hamburglar was busy stealing hearts, others were hating on his new hipster-ish look. Love it, leave it, or who gives a fuck either way, Twitter burned up the trending topic and since we figured everyone could use an almost the end of the week laugh, we grabbed some of our favorites.

Twitter Talked Mad Shit On You, Coachella...Again

Father John Misty
Like it or not, on-line chatter can't stop won't stop and when there's a big (ish) event, whether it be on TV or live in our hood, social media is having their uncensored say. When it came to Coachella 2015 however, we noticed on the 2nd weekend, the topical tweets slowed down substantially. We can only chalk that up to having a severe case of "we never really cared about it anyway but wanted to hit a trending topic just in case" syndrome. We totally comprende.

Twitter Talked A Lot of Shit On Coachella 2015

Categories: Coachella, Twitter

Christopher Victorio

Look at you bragging on social media about spending tons of money on your weekend one Coachella tickets, revealing your perfect Coachella attire, the bands you're watching (from a distance no doubt), and the "mind altering" items that are helping you to set the tone. Well we have news for you showoffs. We can do the same thing. Watch Coachella that is. The only difference is, we're in comfy clothes, the weather indoors is perfection, and our bathrooms haven't been severely violated by countless strangers. And while we're not saying that we are the clear winner in this Coachella contest, we are saying that looking at your countless pictures and videos has us feeling, as the kids would say, "some type of way."
