Instagram’s most famous animal rescue foundation is beloved by celebrities and millions of fans, and completely and utterly terrifying. Scrolling through the Black Jaguar-White Tiger™ feed is like seeing the beginning of Grizzly Man play out on social media.
Using indie video game designer Phil Fish as an example, this video explains the cycle of fame and hate, and how it generates more and more fame. Why do we hate some famous people so much? Why does hate generate even more attention and fame? It's a fascinating process.
Yesterday Sinéad O'Connor told Miley Cyrus to stop behaving like a dumb prostitute, but in a motherly way. Cyrus replied making fun of her past mental health issues. Now O'Connor threatens to sue the devil child, which has prompted Cyrus to reply with the twattest of tweets:
Did an exotic actress from Vienna, considered one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood in the 1940s, really invent wireless? Not exactly, but the non-sensationalized facts of the matter are no less fascinating, involving Hollywood, the World War II Axis Powers, and remote control technology.
2012 was a pretty epic year for visual trickery. We stared through telescopes, transfixed by Venus' cosmic trick of the light; gaped in disbelief at a Rubik's Cube that wasn't; and watched with morbid curiosity as celebrities transformed into grotesque mutations of their former selves.
Pictures hacked from Hollywood stars' email accounts and phones seem to be a mainstay of popular culture these days. Chris Chaney, one of the most prolific celebrity hackers to date, was recently arrested—but GQ has a wonderful profile of the man which you really have to read.
Celebrity Sideboob is a website dedicated to one thing only: post images of celebrities showing the bare sides of their breasts. It's quite erotic, but it doesn't show hardcore images (although you can see nipples sometimes). The site posts its updates on Twitter. Surprisingly, one of its followers is Barack Obama.
Do you know about Fame? No, not the movie or the TV show, but the Twitter lottery? Fame is a Twitter app that works a little bit like a Ponzi scheme, but more sustainable. We talked to yesterday's winner.
The Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots toy is both a vivid and lukewarm memory of my childhood. I remember playing the plastic fighting game with my friend Matt (apparently Matt was quite a popular name for boys born in the early 1980s in the suburbs of St. Paul) and being terribly underwhelmed. There's just about nothing…
Despite the stigma, there are many people still using AOL email. Some are stuck in a technology timewarp; but not everyone is that backwards. Some notable and presumably intelligent celebrities are reportedly still using their AOL email addresses.
When the first footage of "Machete" started to leak out, it seemed like a buffet of celebrity nudity: constant exposed flesh from Lindsay Lohan! Jessica Alba in the shower! Other, future famous women dancing around with nothing on at all!
Celeb-nudity expert Mr. Skin has been using the HD power of Blu-ray to extract image and video of heretofore-unknown celebrity naughty bits. This is one of those revelations that really makes you appreciate living in 2009.
Look I know that Brent "Data" Spiner has always been into light jazz (his album "Ol' Yellow Eyes Is Back" attests to that), but somehow things have gone a bit deep endy with his new album "Dreamland." As the incomparable Ed "Bat Segundo" Champion already revealed in his amazingly demented interview with Spiner, the…
If you ever watched the Star Wars Kid and Homestar Runner, or gawked at the Tron Guy and web comic Xkcd, you're changing the future of celebrity. You're building a world where Paris Hilton and Tom Cruise will be replaced by captioned pictures of cats and clever comics about algebra. At least, that was the premise of…
That website where you upload a picture of yourself and it tells you which celebrities you look like is fun, but what if you could do the same thing in reverse? Microsoft's latest image-based face search has just that application, allowing you to potentially upload a picture of a celebrity and find matches on dating…
Just like they did at last year's ceremony, Motorola is gifting 2008's Oscar nominees with personalized versions of its as-yet-unreleased ROKR E8.
Yeah, yeah, you probably think we are turning into a celebrity website, but, given the past few weeks of will they, won't they? speculation as to whether they are getting…
