American popular music has been around since before America even declared its independence. ‘Yankee Doodle,’ anyone? That classic was sung by Colonial American soldiers as early as The French and Indian War.
Since then, our country has established one of the richest musical traditions in the world. Many songs even deal with America itself, from ‘God Bless America’ to ‘God Bless the USA.’
Here’s a list of 10 to add to your Fourth of July playlist.
Given how popular cats are on the internet, it’s no surprise that Friskies — makers of delicious cat food (or so our cats tell us) for over 50 years — recently rolled out a line of tablet-based apps just for cats. Featuring movements, shapes and colors tailored to appeal to kitty’s sensibilities, your feline friend can now download titles like ‘Cat Fishing’ ‘Tasty Treasures Hunt’ and ‘Party Mix-Up’ from the iTunes App Store and Android Market (if you don’t mind a couple of scratches on your screen). Watch some cats test drive the apps below:
If you’re looking for some hot new dance moves for summer, look no further than these two dancing Maltese puppies. Their signature move, the Let Me In, is sure to replace the Dougie at nightclubs across the nation.
We don’t know what it is exactly, but Australia has been having its fair share of great news bloopers recently. This video of a streaker running behind a 9News weatherman as he reports on the bitter cold temperatures in the mountain town of Katoomba (about 60 miles west of Sydney) is no exception. Be sure to pay close attention though: It’s a quick streak and if you blink, you might miss it. In fact, given how cold it is, you might still miss “it” if he were standing there, stark naked, right in front of you. There’s also a part of us that wonders if most Australians would even bat an eye at this sort of thing because if you’ve ever seen one of those “World’s Funniest Commercial” specials, all the naked ones are from Australia.
Have you ever seen an overweight horse? Of course you haven’t. Horses know how to stay in shape; it’s in their nature. Strange then, that with all the weight-loss programs and fad diets that have come and gone over the years, no one ever thought to create an exercise program based on horse fitness…until now. Enter Horsebic, a Finnish workout routine comprised of exercises like trotting, cantering and show jumping in the field. With 15 new lessons coming down the pike every six months, how could you not sign up?
If there’s one knock against Kool-Aid, it’s that it’s not fattening enough. Sure those sugars are going to turn into fat at some point, but what if you need a quicker fix? Who has time to sit around all day waiting for their metabolism to convert that excess glycogen to fatty acids? Enter deep-fried Kool-Aid, the newest oil-injected creation from the reigning king of fair food, “Chicken” Charlie Boghosian that’s a major web obsession right now.
Apparently gorillas like to back that thang up just as much as humans do. When this male gorilla isn’t out lounging in his habitat at The Calgary Zoo, there’s nothing he likes more than do a couple of spins in the water room and shake what his mama gave him. Talk about the evolution of dance.
