Alanis Morissette - Ironic (21st Century) [VIDEO]

James Corden welcomes Alanis Morissette to perform some hilariously updated lyrics to her 1995 hit "Ironic."

An old friend sends you a Facebook request
You only find out they’re racist after you accept
There’s free office cake on the first day of your diet
It’s like they announce a new iPhone the day after you buy it
And isn’t it ironic, don’t you think?
It’s like swiping left on your future soulmate
It’s a Snapchat that you wish you had saved
It’s a funny tweet that nobody faves
And who would’ve thought it figures

It’s a traffic jam when you try to use Waze
A no-smoking sign when you brought your vape
It’s 10,000 male late-night hosts when all you want is just one woman, seriously!
It’s singing the duet of your dreams, and then Alanis Morissette shouting at you
And isn’t it ironic, don’t you think?
A little too ironic, and yeah I really do think

It’s like you’re first class on a Southwest plane
Then you realize that every seat is the same
It’s like Amazon but your package never came
And who would’ve thought it figures

It’s like Netflix but you own DVDs
It’s a free ride but your Uber’s down the street
It’s singing “Ironic,” but there are no ironies
And who would’ve thought it figures

Virginia Black Whiskey [PRE-ORDER]

Be one of the first people in North America to taste Virginia Black Decadent American Whiskey, the long-anticipated collaboration between Brent Hocking, founder and creator of DeLeón Tequila and the LCBOVO boys.

Virginia Black is a rich, smooth bourbon available at a decidedly reasonable price (because its founders believe that "everyone should have access to glamour, swagger and soul").

Pre-order your bottle online here to have it shipped in advance of the product launch later this summer.

Million Dollars, But... The Game! [FUN]


What would you do for a million dollars? This card game from Rooster Teeth, which is a lot like Cards Against Humanity, puts your morals, imagination, and friendships to the test. 

Rooster Teeth known for its Red vs. Blue comedy series blasted through the $10,000 Kickstarter goal and has sourced almost a million dollars! Million Dollars, But (or MDB, as Rooster Teeth calls it) is a popular webseries that's been running for close to a year. The premise is a simple one: You'll be given a million dollars, but... you'll need to survive a randomly chosen scenario that goes along with the windfall, and its likely to be fairly unpleasant. 

If you want to back it, you can pick it up HERE. The game is $25 and is due to ship in June.

Make It Rain: The Love of Money [APP]

For those who have grown tired of Flappy Bird, or didn't even have the opportunity to get tired of Flappy Bird, Make It Rain: The Love of Money is the current top free iOS App, and it's an anticapitalist spoof that’s making $50K per day!

May is the has been downloaded 1.6 million times, mostly on the iPhone, and it’s making $50,000 per day, half from in-game purchases and half from ads. Most of this has happened in the last week, with something like 250,000 installs per day. Based on reviews and other data, it appears to be particularly popular with young men in high school and college — the frat boy demographic.

Make It Rain co-creator Josh Segall is a bit befuddled. “The new Flappy Bird is about income inequality and political corruption,” he said. “I wish we had been expecting it because maybe then we would have made a game that people would want to play for longer.”

GAMEPLAY: You essentially make it rain until the virtual FBI investigate you virtual stockpile and threaten to seize it, but if you have the funds, you simply buy them off with a virtual bribe. Afterwards you may want to buy a virtual cigarette factory, or possibly a virtual strip mine. In the meantime, hire a virtual PR person and a virtual lobbyist.

It’s not necessarily clear that the app’s cynical undertones are getting through to its users. Sure, when you open the app the first screen shows quotes like “The love of money is the root of all evil.” But then you start swiping as fast as you can to make it rain.

“Some people are in on the joke and really get it and love it,” Segall said. “Some people it takes longer to get, I think.” He sent over a negative-turned-positive app review in which a person initially left a complaint about having spent so much real-world money to make his virtual-world money pile grow faster without reaching any sort of end point. The reviewer later added an update that said, “You end up scrambling for all this money, and for what? I’m definitely not happier I accumulated it. Valuable lesson.”

Mobius Motors: The African Built SUV [CARS]

Mobius Motors designs, manufactures and sells durable, affordable vehicles for Africa's mass market. We are reimagining the car; designing our vehicles around common road terrain, transport usage and consumer income profiles across the region.

American billionaire Ronald Lauder has reportedly provided start-up capital to Mobius Motors, a startup Kenyan car-manufacturing company that plans to build Africa’s cheapest car. Developed by 29 year-old Kenyan computer engineer Joel Jackson, will cost $10,000. Jackson and his team had initially planned for the car to cost $6,000, but as a result of the increasing cost of procuring steel spare parts, Mobius has had to raise its selling price to $10,000 to make the product commercially viable. But even at $10,000, Jackson believes his car is a preferable option to acquiring a pre-owned vehicle for the same amount.

According to a report by Kenya’s Business Daily, Lauder, who is worth about $3.8 billion, is offering Mobius Motors an undisclosed amount in debt which is convertible to equity. Mobius will use the money to assemble its first 50 units and establish a distribution network in Kenya.The most common vehicles across regions like East Africa are imported from more developed countries such as Japan, UAE and India. These vehicles are designed for areas with good road infrastructure - they are not built for an African environment. High import duties also make these vehicles relatively expensive.

To serve the African mass market, Mobius has built a car around the needs of local consumers.

The vehicles have the key functionality and durability of an off-road car, fit for travelling and carrying goods for long distances on bumpy dirt roads. The price is similar to a seven year old sedan vehicle, which is not designed to operate on degraded terrain reliably, nor carry the heavier loads common among consumers in these areas.

Mobius aims to empower transport entrepreneurs across Africa not just with more appropriate vehicles, but with the financing and business advice needed to operate a sustainable transport business, with interior than can be configured to haul either people or 1,100 pounds of cargo.

Marine Debris Typeface [FONTS]

This creation is a full set of letters made up of the 2041 pieces of junk Star went onto collect. From the start, the designer set a few guidelines: no bottles, cans, plastic bags or candy wrappers. He only wanted pieces that had washed up on shore. He also committed to keeping everything as-is. “The rules were to find the letterforms as they were, with no manipulation of any kind,” he says. “With some letters it would have been easy to bend or twist something to fit–but that would have been cheating my own rules. I enjoyed the idea that this was just a search and I didn’t have to do any thinking, just walk and observe.”

You can see all 2041 pieces in Star’s short film HERE, and when the typeface is released later this year, every single one of his pieces will be included, even if it’s only useful as ornamentation.

The unique sneaker features a form-fitting, sock-like upper with neoprene straps that wrap around the foot for a lock-down fit, all while sitting atop a roll-ball outsole.

Apple iPhone 6 Sneak Peek [TECH]

Excitement for Apple’s next-generation iPhone 6 is really starting to build now, and new leaks are coming fast and furious. Supposed schematics for the iPhone 6 leaked from Apple’s manufacturing partners some time ago and as always, third-party protective case makers have been using them to begin designing cases in an effort to get a leg up on the competition. This year, however, people are also using the schematics to build mockups of the iPhone 6, and they may give us a very good idea of what the finished product will look like.

Now, new photos of iPhone 6 mockups have surfaced, potentially showing off all three colors the redesigned iPhone 6 side by side for the first time.

Take a look at the Space Grey, Silver, & Gold mock ups HERE.
