Has ever a band looked more bored? Has ever an audience looked like they were trying this hard to care?  Has ever a frontman tried less hard to pretend they were not lipsyncing? Has ever anyone danced this bad?

The best interface copy I’ve seen in a while

There’s a new (I think) website/service/whatever called Fav4 (which by the way you should check out).

Their “About” section has this killer interface copy:

TELL YOUR FRIENDS (AND YOUR MOM AND DAD)

Which I totally love.

Because: it’s clever and unexpected. Also because: despite the persistent myth of Digital Youth, Old People* are actually really good at using the Internet now. And your Mom and Dad might actually like using this service.

* No offense, Mom and Dad. But in Internet Years, you’re hella old.

Fun facts about United States Politicians (#4)

Fun fact: Senator Mike Crapo (Republican, Idaho) secretly thinks that sometimes you have to forego heritage and just change your name so that your kids won’t get picked on at school.

Bonus fun fact: he also knows the macron used over the a in his campaign signs isn’t fooling anyone.
