#NationalDogDay – The Dogs of Slacker!

We’re celebrating #NationalDogDay on Friday, along with the rest of the internet, and you can listen to our station full of dog songs – The Twenty: Dog Days – now! But we also wanted to take this chance to show off our own dogs, so I asked my Slacker coworkers to send me pictures and blurbs about their 4 legged friends.

First and foremost, you need to see this picture of my dog, Yuri, dressed as Marty McFly on Back To The Future Day last year.

Watch The (Surprisingly Touching!) Piano Ballad Version of an 80’s Hair Metal Anthem

If you would have asked me last week if the 1984 Twisted Sister classic “We’re Not Gonna Take It” had ever made me cry, I would have laughed and said no. No way. That was before I saw this.

This week, Twisted Sister frontman Dee Snider has teamed up with Criss Angel’s HELP (Heal Every Life Possible) charity and turned the song into a surprisingly touching plea to help children with cancer.

On September 12th, Angel’s HELP will throw a fundraising launch party and auction at the Luxor in Vegas that will feature guests like Richie Sambora, Vince Neil, Mike Tyson, Black Eyed Peas’ Taboo, Jerry Lewis, Wayne Newton and a ton more big names. The site calls it “an unforgettable event benefiting pediatric cancer research, treatment and ultimately a cure,” saying that “100% of every cent donated will go directly to fund pediatric cancer research.”

Find out more and get your tickets to the event here.

Then check out the original Twisted Sister version, plus more fun tracks on Slacker’s Party Metal station!

Are You Excited For The Olympics?

Because I’m pretty excited for the Olympics. Parker here & I can’t help it, any event where nations are competing brings out my inner patriot. But overall, it’s just amazing what these athletes are able to do after years and years of practice and sacrifice and dedication.

A few Slacker artists are helping with the festivities this year – you probably already know about Katy Perry‘s contribution.

IF THAT DID NOT GIVE YOU GOOSEBUMPS, YOU MIGHT BE A ROBOT. I’M JUST SAYING.

Fifth Harmony are ready to cheer on the US Women’s Gymnastics team, too, retweeting a preview of the team’s theme.

There’s Something Missing From Charlie Puth’s New Video…

…hmmmm, what could it be?

Charlie Puth finally released the much anticipated video for his track with Selena Gomez, We Don’t Talk Anymore, and it’s great – except for one glaring omission.

The first time watching I was all “wow, Selena looks different here.” Then, about a minute in “oh. That’s not Selena.”

Fans were none too pleased either, leaving youtube comments like “I SHOULD BITE OFF YOU OTHER EYEBROW FOR NOT HAVING SELENA IN THE VIDEO” and “CADÊ A SELENA? ESSE NÃO É MEU MUNDO!” which, loosely translated from portuguese means “WHERE IS SELENA? THIS IS NOT MY WORLD!”

I guess Selena’s been pretty busy on the road with the Revival Tour. Too busy for Charlie, apparently.

Charlie did pull off a pretty great, slowed down solo performance of this song at the Teen Choice Awards over the weekend.

See what Charlie has to say about the video on Buzzfeed, and listen up for all the latest from Charlie, Selena & more of your favorite Slacker artists on Today’s Hits!

ETA: Charlie’s response.


Justin Timberlake Has Completed His Metamorphosis to The Dad Phase

Justin Timberlake was presented with the first ever Decade award at this weekend’s Teen Choice awards. The award is meant to recognize “his continuous evolvement as an artist over the past 10 years”, plus this just happens to be the 10-year anniversary of his hit album FutureSex/LoveSounds. What a coincidence, right?

JT went full dad mode on this audience of kids, reminding them over and over that he is now old, dropping references to the Reverend Al Green (teen audience response – “huh?”) and slinging quotes from the late, great Muhammad Ali. He wore a buttoned up cardigan and rounded out his acceptance speech with a reminder to be nice to your parents.

DAD ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED!

All in all, though, it was a pretty touching speech. Check it out in full below, and spend some time with JT on Slacker – you can hear what makes Justin Justin on the Justin Timberlake: DNA station, listen to his biggest hits on Justin Timberlake: The Count UP, or throwback to FutureSex/LoveSounds – check out the deluxe edition here.
