NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams: Boston Mayor Thomas Menino writes letter to Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner:

nbcnightlynews:

Dear Mr. Wenner,

Your August 3 cover rewards a terrorist with celebrity treatment. It is ill-conceived, at best, and re-affirms a terrible message that destruction gains fame for killers and their “causes”. There may be valuable journalism behind your sensational treatment, though we can’t…

Well said, Mayor Menino. Best response I’ve seen all day.

Watch: “The Wizard of Ahhhs” by Pentatonix and Todrick Hall

A full reinterpretation of ‘The Wizard of Oz’ with pop and viral songs all done a cappella. All parties involved have really outdone themselves this time. Just look at those costumes.

No seriously, watch this.

Must watch.

Single Topic Blog of the Day: 99 Problems
Ever wondered what Jay-Z’s “99 problems" are all about? Artist Ali Graham is doing his best to figure them out in his new Tumblr blog 99 Problems, where he showcases color illustrations of Hova dealing with first world rapper problems (as often referenced in his lyrics), ranging from brushing dirt off his shoulder to figuring out “where Brooklyn at.” So far, more than 40 of the rapper’s problems have been illustrated, with new updates being posted via @99probs99 Twitter feed.
