"Like That Little Cage is Gonna Help Ya"

Those sharks keep on coming.

Check out this video of a monster shark leaping out of the water. You can get a sense of its size from the shark cage's pontoons in the foreground.

The best part is the look on the face of the Australian Today Show's anchor and his co-host.

They're both completely dumbfounded, and vow never to go in the water again.

Check it out.

Hello Again, Denali

Just before leaving for a trip to Alaska, President Obama righted what many Native Americans see as a century old wrong.

The name of America's highest peak, Mount McKinley in Alaska, has been changed back to its original name, Denali.

In the native tongue, the word means "the high one."

The story of how it became known as Mount McKinley - named after President William McKinley, who was only a candidate for the presidency at the time - is pretty funny.

A gold prospector came ouf of the Alaskan wilderness, telling stories about the sights he'd seen, including this very high mountain. He decided that it should be named for McKinley, a Republican from Ohio who had never been and never would end up going to Alaska.

Makes perfect sense, right?

And that's it?

Native American groups in Alaska have been fighting for the name change since Alaska became a state in 1959. 

Who says bureaucracies move slowly?

Say It Ain't So - Please Say It Ain't So

A day after the Video Music Awards, during which Kanye West ran about ten minutes past his alloted two minutes, the folks at TMZ are reporting that MTV wants Kanye to host the show next year.

Seriously?

I mean, what did we do to deserve that, MTV?

We've been good, haven't we?

It's bad enough you wouldn't let the guys in the control room cut him off when he went over.

It's bad enough one of your execs followed him to his dressing room to tell him how terrific he was.

Now you want to put him in as host?

Are you prepared for a weekend-long event, MTV? Cuz that's how this is shaping up!

Hotel California, Sin Musica

This video's several months old, but I just stumbled on it, and it's worth sharing.

An a capella group called Cubanos Acapella performed the Eagles' classic, "Hotel California."

No music, except the music created by the performers.

Percussion, guitars and more, all created vocally.

And it's perfection.

Check it out.

Downton Abbey Wrapping Up

Are you ready for it, Downton Abbeyites?

Your favorite series is wrapping up this season, which starts September 20.

The folks at ITV released this trailer over the weekend.

It feels a little sad, but a little uplifting too.

Sort of like a rite of passage.

What do you think?

Just a Little Harsh, Wouldn't You Say?

So it looks like Demi Lovato's performance at MTV's Video Music Awards on Sunday wasn't all that well received.

She performed outside the theater on a stage set up on there, and the people inside the auditorium watched on monitors.

Demi was wearing what's been described as "dominatrix-style" boots and a bedazzled dress.

And when Iggy Azalea joined her on stage - well, things didn't get much better.

One viewer at home had a pretty harsh tweet about it. Check it out...

New Music - Summertime by Trevor Guthrie...


A good wrap up summer song here. Gotta question singing along to the song in the video though when he can't even come close to matching up with the song...

OMG! You 2?

So, Amber Rose and Blac Chyna showed up at MTV's Video Music Awards last night wearing the same outfit.

I mean, seriously, they couldn't have checked in with each other?

Okay, turn out, they did. This was a coordinated effort.

Same material, different dresses, both sporting words and phrases that people - Amber and Blac would call them "haters" - have used when describing them.

"Whore," "Stripper," "Bitch," "Gold Digger" - things like that.

Some are calling it a blow for feminism.

Others are thinking they were mugged by a graffiti artist.

What do you think?

Bitch Slap at the VMA Corral

You never know what you're going to get when Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus are in the same room.

What you got last night at the VMAs was fireworks!

Nicki was on stage, accepting her award for "Anaconda" as Best Hip Hop Video.

She thanked everyone who made it possible, the way you do at awards shows.

And then she laid into Miley Cyrus, who had some particulary unflattering things to say about Nicki in a previous interview.

Miley's response was pretty much "that's the way it goes in this industry."

And that just made Nicki madder.

Watch the video...
