(PCM) This will definitely a huge game changer in both the music and smartphone industry if this rumor turns out to be true. It seems that Apple has developed a new technology that would block iPhones and other Apple devices from being able to take photos or video at concert.
Those of you who enjoy posting your blurry cell phone shots and crappy quality iPhone concert videos to social media should probably enjoy it while you still can, however something tells us that if this technology does see the light of day there are certainly going to be quite a few angry iPhone users. However, don’t you get tired of watching an entire show from the cell phone screen of the person in front of you? We certainly do!
The new technology that Apple is developing is called “camera detecting infrared signal” and the way it works is simple. A venue would simply be able to internally turn on a signal that would jam/block iPhone cameras from being able to photograph or record concert footage. Watch as everyone now rushes out to buy an Android phone! Would this new technology make you think twice about purchasing an iPhone?
We are wondering if this newly developed technology could expand beyond live music events and into other areas where cell phone filming and photographing is considered obnoxious. Looks like we will have to wait and see, but we are betting this idea will be vetoed before it even gets fully off the ground. Either way, food for thought!
(PCM) Talk about dedication to a project! A young man and his group of friends decided to fill a 1,500 gallon swimming pool with nothing but Coca-Cola and then take a swim. We don’t really understand why, however they filmed their epic undertaking and the resulting video has gone viral racking up well over 12 million views and counting on Youtube.
The video description claims that they spent weeks purchasing literally thousands of bottles of Coke and even more time opening and pouring in each and every one. And, shhh!, they even snuck some Pepsi in there, roughly about 7% of the pool fill total.
We think that the Coca-Cola swimming pool experiment was created to show the indestructibility of a quite expensive drone, however it appears that more people were freaking out over just how much Coke these guys used and why they would do such a thing.
One YouTube commenter, Matt Paff, broke down the videos expenses saying “Let’s do the math, if it is a 1500 gallon pool, then there are about 5,678 liters of coke. If they spent about a dollar a bottle ( and that is sale price) they spent about $2,839 on coke. If they didn’t have the pool already that another $500. The phantom 4 is $1,319 ( on Amazon)So in all they spent (about) $4,658 dollars. YOUR WELCOME!!!”
Either way, they are making bank now with all the YouTube traffic and our question is first off, how did they keep bugs and other garden pests out of the pool and just how do they plan on cleaning all of this up afterwards!
(PCM) There are various types of cafe’s all around the world, however we can bet that none are quite as risque as the one that is about to open it’s doors (or other orifices) in Switzerland. There is already quite a bit of controversy surround the establishment, but thus far it has been given the green light. The very first “fellatio cafe” called FaceGirl will be opening up in Geneva by the end of 2016.
Prostitution is legal in Switzerland and sex workers are issued permits by the Swiss government. According to the country’s law, if two or more sex workers are employed by a business, it must be registered as a massage parlor, however, there is no law that states these “massage parlors” cannot serve coffee or other beverages, so that is exactly what FaceGirl has in mind.
The way it works is that a customer comes in pays a flat fee of approximate $70 and places their order for a coffee beverage and a girl of their choice from a Ipad menu. The customer then has a seat at the bar, however it will not be your typical bar set-up, as the customer will then be “serviced” while enjoying their steamy cup of joe. Certainly brings new definition to would you like cream and sugar, right?
A FaceGirl rep claims that they came up with the idea for the cafe from similar Thai establishments and that they expect customers to be in and out of the shop rather quickly, think 5 or 10 minutes, versus other coffee cafes where you can spend a few hours.
Many feel that sex and coffee are a way of life to begin with, however others are not so happy about the cafe opening, as they feel that the men in charge of the project will be the only ones making any profit. Currently the project is a go, however, once it get’s brewing we’ll see how long it lasts.
(PCM) The words Kanye West and controversy always seem to go hand in hand and he is once again stirring the pot with his latest music video for the song “Famous” off his latest album release “The Life Of Pablo”. Despite the fact that the album has been out since Valentine’s Day, “Famous” is still the only official single and the first track off the album to receive a music video, and a very NSFW one at that, but from Kanye would you expect anything less.
As he recently tweeted, “Can somebody sue me already? #Ill wait”, Kanye already realizes that he could be in hot water for his video’s depicting of several high-profile celebrities in the nude laying on a massive bed together. Many of the naked celebs featured in the video are realistic looking wax figures, however there are definitely a few such as Kanye, himself, his wife Kim Kardashian, singer Rihanna, and Caitlyn Jenner who may actually be real, judging by the bodily movements when taking a closer look at the video.
Other celebrities whose naked likeness is represented are Taylor Swift, Donald Trump, Vouge editor Anna Wintour, Chris Brown, Amber Rose, Ray J and shockingly Bill Cosby. Kanye claims the video, which is only currently available for viewing on Tidal, is a comment on fame and he says that other celebrity friends he shared the video with began complaining because they wanted to “be in the bed”.
Love him or hate him, Kanye always has a very unique and artistic viewpoint on pop culture and is never afraid to push the limits for the sake of art and social commentary. Some celebrities featured in the video have already spoken out about having their nude likeness splayed out in the video. While, Chris Brown was jokingly complaining about his “plumber’s crack”, Taylor Swift is said to be horrified by her depiction in the video. Other celebrities have yet to publicly comment.
You can see a shortened snippet of the video below, keep in mind that it is incredibly NSFW and contains both implied and actual nudity.
(PCM) It is a horror story come to life for individuals who have buried their beloved pets in the pet cemetery at the Delaware SPCA. The Stanton branch of the Delaware SPCA has recently closed down their Stanton location and are in the process of making a sale on the large 21-acre property, however there is one major issue. There are over 1,000 pets and animals buried on the property which is where owners believed was to be their pet’s final resting place.
Due to the proposed construction and renovation of the property, the SPCA told several pet owners that they had only until the end of the month to remove their pet’s headstones and if they choose, exhume the remains and relocate them to another location. Yes, that is as gruesome as it sounds. Already, several individuals have visited the property and made an attempt to dig up their animals, however due to the amount of time that has passed and other external conditions some of the animals buried in the cemetery can not be located.
In fact, even the Delaware police force cannot located the remains of “Captain”, the county’s very first police dog. Also buried in the cemetery are the remains of “Igloo” a bear from the local Brandywine Zoo, a goat named “Minnie Pearl” and a pair of poodles named “Brigitte and Babette”. Here’s where things take an even creepier and more problematic turn for the Delaware SPCA, as it has also been reported that there may in fact be human remains buried on the property as well.
It seems that a woman named Miss Ligon had her ashes interred on the property so that her final resting place would be near her beloved dog, a Border Collie named “Lady”. Miss Ligon was a nationally recognized sculptor and an avid dog lover. When “Lady” passed away in 1973 she was buried in the the Delaware SPCA pet cemetery, according to a pet cemetery contract that was unearth by the Delaware News Journal. The New Journal also went on to uncover notes from a 1980 board meeting which approved Miss Ligons’ ashes to be interred in the cemetery.
The Delaware SPCA claims to have“no knowledge of any human remains on our Stanton property”, however most of the evidence points to Miss Ligon being buried alongside her pet, as she had no living relatives at the time of her death in 1980. Pet cemeteries are not regulated by federal or state governments because animal remains are considered “solid waste” under Delaware law. But human cemeteries fall under the state’s authority and that could be a game changer for any plans the Delaware SPCA had for selling the property. If it turns out that a human is buried on the property, the SPCA would need to register that specific plot as a cemetery and follow a new set of protocol for exhuming the remains and relocating them.
Individuals who have been visiting the property for more information and to make an attempt at relocating their pets were being turned away by the guard on-site and told to contact the Delaware SPCA board or Georgetown location by phone. Thus far the Delaware SPCA has not returned any phone calls or commented about the issue, which has been absolutely heartbreaking for pet owners.
There is currently an online petition beginning to pick up steam, as pet owners want answers and would like to prevent the sale and save the building and surrounding pet cemetery. It has already reached over 2,000 signatures and continues to grow. Many pet owners who have buried their animals at the Delaware SPCA pet cemetery also claim that the Delaware SPCA is in breach of contract, as they have signed documents that prove “the Delaware SPCA guarantees continued use and upkeep of the grave site for the period of twenty-five (25) years.” That particular contract was signed in 1998, however the shelter stopped the pet burial process about 10 years ago.
(PCM) Two young men who reside in the area of Phoenix, Arizona came up with the brilliant plan to set off every firework in their local area Walmart store. We are guessing they were bored, however they are going to have to deal with a whole lot more boredom, as they are being charged with a class 2 felony, which is just below murder and will be most likely spending the next several years behind bars.
The actions of this pair put a huge scare on Walmart customers at the time of the incident as everyone who was shopping in the store began to run for their lives. While there were no actual mortars or large fireworks set off, as it is only legal in the state of Arizona to sell poppers, sparklers and smoke snakes, it was still enough to cause significant damage to the store and could have potentially caused a much bigger fire if things had gotten any further out of control.
The duo could be facing up to 20 years behind bars and countless fines. Another customer filmed the incident, although we are not exactly sure why he was casually filming the video below rather than fleeing to safety. The duo responsible for setting off the fireworks were also captured on store surveillance cameras in the act and looking back to admire their job.
