Pitbull feat. Ke$ha – Timber


“Timber” by Pitbull ft. Kesha is a playful mashup of what sounds like folk country tunes with dance music. It sounds as if a harmonica is playing in the background, slightly reminiscent musically of “Cotton Eye Joe” but peformed in the uniqueness of Pitbull & Ke$ha. The song talks about dancing and having fun, which would make it a strong musical candidate to play at a party and/or a club.

Mimic Octopus


Of all the amazing octopus species out there, the mimic octopus,Thaumoctopus mimicus, is perhaps the most bewildering. While most known octopuses are able to change color and shape for camouflage, mimic octopuses can also impersonate other animals to deter would-be predators. They can contort their bodies and long, striped arms to look–and swim–like other (less edible) sea life, including lionfish, sole and banded sea snakes. These implausible creatures were only first discovered by scientists in the 1990s in Sulawesi, Indonesia. Since then, the mimic octopuses have been found in various waters around that island country, but not too much farther afield. They are generally active during the day but live primarily on obscuring sandy or muddy sea floors–down to about seven meters.

But these odd octopuses have now made a confirmed appearance on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, more than 2,000 kilometers from where they were first described. Divers had reported sightings of these strange cephalopods in recent years, but Darren Coker, a researcher at James Cook University’s ARC Center for Excellence for Coral Reef Studies, verified this species’ presence there, in a report published online earlier this month in Marine Biodiversity Records. This animal’s presence on the Great Barrier Reef also suggests that the reef itself is home to even more exotic animals that we previously imagined. The Great Barrier Reef may contain many more undocumented species from the Indo-Pacific region. But due to the limited familiarity…new species are going undocumented.

Yelawolf – F.A.S.T. Ride (Official Video)


The chaotic drum & bass that haunts Yelawolf’s “F.A.S.T. Ride” is a return to form for the Alabama spitter. Produced by Supahot Beats, Yela steers around the moody synths and country gumbo spitting more aggressive and hungry. It’s slowly starting to match the tempo of “Way Out”, making his Trunk Muzik Returns tape due March 14th.

Movie Marathoning (Batman vs. The Avengers).

With The Dark Knight Rises one of the most anticipated films of the summer, CraveOnline decided to make Batman the focus of their latest Movie Marathoners, tackling eight different Bat-films back to back.  Beginning with 1966’s Batman: The Movie, an audience of over 30 made their way through Tim Burton’s 1989 Batman, Batman Returns, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, Batman Forever, Batman and Robin, Batman Begins and, finally, The Dark Knight.  Take a look at the rating at the end of the video and see if you agree.

The Breathing Earth.

As odd as it sounds, this post has been a dream of mine for a very long time.  When I was about 5 or 6, I remember asking my father how many people were on the planet, and he said to me, “It’s impossible to be exact, the number is constantly changing.”  After that, I remember just wondering what it would be like to see, in the simplest form an exact count of how many people there were on Earth, and just how quickly that number would change in front of my eyes.  The site Breathing Earth does just that, with a little more precision.  One the page, you can see (not in real time, but by statistical estimation) how many people are born and die in each country all across the globe.  Check the method by clicking the picture above.
