Well this sounds disgusting . . . but I still kind of want to try it. Apparently the trendy new drink of the summer is a mix of COFFEE and LEMONADE.
A coffee shop called Stand Coffee in Brooklyn created it. If you want to make it at home, it includes cold brew coffee, lemonade, vanilla syrup, and a splash of almond milk . . . sort of like a demented Arnold Palmer.
Actor Jamie Costa Pays Tribute To Robin Williams With Spot-On Impressions Of His Characters
A federal jury ruled yesterday that “Blurred Lines” DOES rip off the 1977 MARVIN GAYE song “Got to Give It Up”.
And they ordered ROBIN THICKE and PHARRELL WILLIAMS to pay Marvin’s kids $7.4 million. The Gayes also sued T.I., who appears on the song. But the jury let him off the hook.
During a week-long trial, Gaye’s family brought in a musicologist who testified that there was a “constellation” of eight similar elements in the two songs.
Their attorney also noted that in several interviews, Robin said he told Pharrell he wanted to write a song LIKE “Got to Give It Up” . . . and that Pharrell had said he tried to pretend he WAS Marvin Gaye while writing it.
Robin, Pharrell and T.I. released a statement saying the verdict, quote, “sets a horrible precedent for music and creativity going forward.” And it sounds like they plan to appeal.
(Here’s a mashup of the two songs.)
We found a list online of sounds you’ll probably never hear again, and some are pretty recent . . . although the sound of a modem connecting DOES feel like it was 100 years ago.
Anyway, here are nine sounds that are either extinct, or so rare today that they might as well be . . .
- A factory whistle starting or ending a shift.
- A mechanical cash register.
- A steam locomotive.
- A car backfiring.
- A dial-up modem.
- TV static.
- A busy signal.
- A pager.
- A fax machine.
