Guy Ritchie’s amazing soccer commercial


Considering we haven’t heard much from Mr. Madonna lately, it’s awesome to see the very talented Mr. Ritchie use his skills in this killer spot for Nike Football (cough, Soccer, cough).

A great point of view style, spot the cameos – full video after the jump

Listen to Weezer’s “Pork and Beans”

Pork and Beans

A return to form for the mighty Weezer with the first single from their latest self-titled album (this time, the kids are calling it “Red”, as this is the third self-titled Weezer album after “Blue” and “Green”).

Listen to the single and read all the lyrics after the jump. Rumor is the song is a jab at Interscope’s insistence Weezer have a more “commercial” sound:

Vacuuming for the Pope!

Yes, the red carpet has been laid out Pope Benedict‘s trip to New York – and maybe New York went a little too overboard.

Pictured above is a man vacuuming at the World Trade Center. Luckily, the dude is using a $1,000 Miele Capricorn Miele Vacuum to suck up any unsettling dust that might upset The Pontiff.

Only the best luxury German vacuum for PB XVI!

Spring has finally sprung here in New York, and what better way to celebrate than a long, depressing epic from The Cure?

Enjoy – this clip underlines how mediocre Fat Bob & Co. currently are without Roger O’Donnell playing keyboards…

After several minutes, Artie apparently lost his cool and attempted to attack Teddy, and needed to be restrained and removed from the studio.

Listen to the audio clip after the jump (via Iced Blog), detailing some of the argument between Teddy and Lange and the drama that followed afterwards…

Natalie Portman and Devendra Banhart: sign of the apocalypse?

Natalie Portman and Devandra

Yes, that’s Devendra Banhart and Natalie Portman walking arm in arm through Tompkins Square Park.

witz.org has no idea if they are a couple, of just friends, or perhaps they just like sharing a laugh. They do seem like an odd couple, no?

Natalie does have some history with the old hippie Devendra, recently starring in one of his music videos. Whatever the ultimate truth may be, we are just happy to see Natalie isn’t bald or smoking cigarettes anymore.
