Stuff That Happened This Week (May 6-13)

TOO MANY BIRDS STHTW

IN WHICH I FIND COOL STUFF ON THE INTERNET SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO! 

A weekly collection of kickass stuff I find on the internet.

Cool Stuff // And Also… // Articles // Videos // Trailers & TV/Movie News

**This is late (cos I’ve had a lot of shows recently) but still quality! SO ENJOY!!**

DI Cool Stuff BarGin Is The Best Because Of Reasons! ~ In my experience (experience here meaning unapologetic drinker of gin) gin gets a lot of undeserved slander. I blame Hogarth. The New York Times ran an article titled Gin Doesn’t Make You Sad. I read it thinking it might reveal some amazing scientific discovery about my favorite liquor (I don’t need science to know that gin is amazing, but for everyone criticizing my drink of choice, sometimes it’s nice to throw science in their face). The article is basically one person’s discovery that gin wasn’t making him sad… his life was. Yikes. Anyway… gin is awesome. The key to establishing something as a scientific fact is the ability to replicate an experiment and that yields consistent results. FACT: Gin is fun and delicious EVERY TIME! (That’s right– I’m drinking for SCIENCE!)    [The New York Times]

In Terms Of Awesome Space News– CANADA IS KILLING IT!! ~ So, two weeks ago, Canada announced they were redesigning their $5 bill and putting astronauts on it. Which is awesome (WHY DON’T WE HAVE SPACE MONEY, AMERICA??). Chris Hadfield, the commander of Expedition 35, returned to earth on the 15th of May, after a six month long mission in space. He will be returning with Roman Romanenko (RSA) and Thomas Marshburn (NASA/USA!). Astronauts are clearly very cool. What makes Chris Hadfield double cool? Right before he came back to earth, HE DID A COVER OF DAVID BOWIE’S “SPACE ODDITY”– IN SPACE.  [Space.com]

– Arya is the fastest growing name for girls. Arya (from the TV show Game of Thrones) is becoming a popular name. Given that Bella (the main character from Twilight) was the most popular name last year- it’s going to be interesting when all of these children grow up. It’s basically going to be like that weird epilogue in the Harry Potter books… except none of your children are wizards. [UPROXX]

YOU GUYS!

Someone made a mashup of The Prince of Egypt‘s “Plague Song” and the theme from Space Jam.

I cannot express how happy I am that this exists.

And if you haven’t heard “The Plagues”- DO IT! That song crazy dramatic, yo!  You can listen to it here.

Afterwards, I recommend finding a friend who has also listened to the song on repeat and do badass duet where you are basically just yelling the lyrics at each other. It’s awesome.
