Twenty One Pilots’ Tyler Joseph/Lin Manuel Miranda = Brothers From Another Mother?

First of all, I take back what I said in The Weekly Alternative Countdown about BOTH Tyler and Josh looking like Lin Manuel Miranda.

HOWEVER, after further evaluation, I maintain Tyler and Lin do. Not sure if it’s facial structure or what…but couldn’t Tyler pass for younger half-brother or cousin??

Ps – No I am not high.

Maybe I just want to see it since they are doing SNL together? Or maaaaaybe, you’ll see it this Saturday night??

Bruce Springsteen Writes An Absent Note For A 5th Grader. Fingers Crossed “Principal Brown” Is Equally As Cool.

Have you noticed how attendance seems to be a bigger deal these days? Schools are so militant about it, parents freak out wondering if they’re going to get punished by the office too. So all the more awesome that The Boss wrote an absent note for Michael Fenerty. I just hope Principal Brown let him slide…

Pardon, I’m completely projecting my anxiety. For those of us who were always on the dean’s radar, turning in an absent note always felt like this.

Slot Yeah!

Apparently there will be a new slot machine with Tim McGraw’s mug on it in casinos next summer. What better way to reveal that exciting news than with a bunch of dancing Tims, I always say.

Something tells me if anyone does show up naked to the polls, they might not be as attractive as Katy Perry so bring some hand sanitizer and ignore the person in line making bad election puns…because you know there is always one.

it’s usually me.

Every week I like to point out a “hero” of the week. It’s a lighthearted hero but a hero none the less. This week it was the couple who requested photos of Jeff Goldblum and got them. Read all about it here.

A. Who would you want photos of in your hotel room?

B. What music/song would complement Jeff Goldblum?

C. Remind me to tell you about The Goldblum Water Ballet. Yes, I did witness the glory.

Native Americans From North Dakota Help Design Pharrell’s Latest Adidas Collection In Gorgeous New “Hu”.

“Hu is short for human – human being, human race, humankind,’ said Pharrell. ‘But Hu, itself is also a reference to color. As human beings, we all have a color. We all look different, we all speak different languages, but we’re all connected.’ Pharrell Williams

Building on the limited-edition NMD that launched in July, Pharrell and adidas Originals return with Hu, a diverse range of full-color footwear and dynamic activewear. Celebrating a spirit of equality, acceptance, co-existence and understanding, the collection features flags, stripes, and translations of the phrase “Human Race” in English, French, and Japanese. Pharrell sums up the collection’s message simply: ‘I play for the human race.’

With the launch of Hu, Pharrell looks to shine a spotlight on communities around the world, sharing stories and traditions of humanity. In this first collection Native Americans from North Dakota invited Pharrell into their community to share their stories of compassion and culture, carrying on traditions of language, prayer, celebration and knowledge from one generation to the next.

‘I am so thankful to the people of MHA Nation who shared their journey and experiences with me. I want to use my platform for people to tell their stories and help empower people no matter where they’re from. By understanding humanity’s past, we will build a bridge to its future.’ Pharrell Williams

The adidas Originals = PHARRELL WILLIAMS Hu collection launches at select retailers worldwide and online at www.adidas.com/pharrell on September 29th.

The Followill fam is back! Caleb and the boys are trying to behave this time around, no really they are so maybe that’s why they got a little weird with their latest album cover for Walls due to hit on October 14th.

Doesn’t it kinda look like their heads are cereal in milk?? and if KoL head-shaped cereal were real, would you eat it?

I’d probably try it once so I could say I did… so long as the hair wasn’t real and it tasted like Cookie Crisp.
