No Host For VMA’s. But No One Knows What’s Going On Even With A Host

moonman

So tired of MTV. What a played out channel. Hope Vice obliterates what’s left of their audience (even though I find Vice irritating too). Read about this stank news story here.

Sorry, it’s Monday, I’m in a grumpy mood.

New Apps Show Videos Are A Hot Commodity, And Just Getting Hotter

mixbit

Not to be out done by Vine or Instagram, YouTube’s co-founders have created MixBit, a new video editing app that literally does it all (shoot-edit-publish) for videos. And the co-founders Chad Hurley and Steve Chen have even done one better, since the app allows for videos to be edited together as a string of clips–up to 256 actually. Nice.

You can get the app on iPhone, and as a web app, with a version for Android slated for next week.

Gaga Gets Naked For “Art”

Anybody else tired of this whole celebrities show up and suddenly they’re “art” thing? I actually find Marina Abramović really interesting, but this thing with Gaga….I don’t know, and that crap with Jay Z, it was seriously awkward to watch. Mainly, I’m referencing this hot mess, and this, and (yawn) of course this had to happen, cause he’s Jay Z, in an art gallery. So crazy, right? It’s all so very lame. Somebody pointed out (I can’t remember who) that basically Jay ain’t doing anything Andy Warhol didn’t do back in the day with his collaboration with many, many a celebrity. Hmmmm. Let me think about that….ya, NO. NO. NO. NO.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge fan of Jay Z (and we’re talking from back in the day stuff), but truly the closest this guy will come to “creating art” is if he paints “ego” on a canvas and frames it for all to see. Otherwise, sorry Hova, it’s I’m just not feelin’ it.

Netflix To Offer Individual Profiles

 

The move will help users differentiate themselves on one account, and allow Netflix the ability to track users data with far more accuracy. Users can even create profiles based on different moods–which should prevent Netflix from recommending Judge Dredd when you’re having a eat a pint of Ben & Jerry’s, stay in pajamas kind of day.

Random Video Grab: It’s Maru The Cat’s Birthday

Update: Grumpy Cat may have gotten the revenge he was looking for–a movie deal.

That’s right, round up any “special” boxes you have and express ship’em to Japan because one very special Scottish Fold is turning all of 6-years-old today. Watch above as Maru rests on the arm of a couch, turns off running water, takes a nap, and tries to wrestle his way into objects way to small for his cute pudginess (extra cute bonus points here!). Awww, that adorable Maru!

And you got to respect a cat who figured out that simply by jumping into a box you can average 800,000 views. So step a side Keyboard Cat, and Stairs Cat, and yes, even you, skydiving cat, because Maru has got this. But hey, don’t hate the player, hate the game. I’ll let Grumpy Cat have the last word here.

Exactly.
