President Barack Obama appeared on Zach Galifianakis Funny or Die interview show ‘Between Two Ferns’. Galifianakis began by shooshing the US president, stumbling over the pronunciation of his last name Obama, and then asking him what it is like to be the “last black president”.He then asked Obama about sending “ambassador Dennis Rodman” to North Korea and outlawing “same-sex divorce”. President Obama spent two minutes of the six-and-a-half-minute interview trying to convince young people to sign up for Obamacare.

The trailer for a documentary about Wisconsin’s Smart Studios features some famous faces like Dave Grohl, Billy Corgan, and producer/Garbage founder Butch Vig.
Each of them share stories about how the studio became the birthplace of albums like Nirvana’s “Nevermind”, Smashing Pumpkins’ “Gish” and Fall Out Boy’s “Take This to Your Grave”.
“The Smart Studios Story” is seeking funds on Kickstarter and so far, it has gotten $25,000 in pledges. It has a way to go before it reaches its $120,000 goal by March 30th.
If the funding happens, the documentary will tell the story of how Vig and fellow Garbage-member Steve Marker founded Smart Studios and closed its doors for good in 2010. Artists who sat for interviews in the doc include Shirley Manson, L7′s Donita Sparks, Death Cab For Cutie’s Chris Walla, Against Me!’s Laura Jane Grace, as well as members of Killdozer, Die Kreuzen, Bongzilla, Young Fresh Fellows and more.
By the way , there are rewards for people who help with the funding. Rewards include dinner with Vig and Marker, autographed posters and various skull caps. If all goes as planned, the doc would be out by October 2015.
A South Carolina mom held a 23-year-old man at gunpoint with a BB gun after she caught him having sex with her 15-year-old daughter.
The man met the girl on the messenger service Kik and they had been dating for a month or so.
He came over to the house, snuck in through her bedroom window, and had consensual sex with her.
As he went to leave through the same window he came in, the mom showed up holding a bb gun that looked very much like a real rifle.
She held the unloaded gun on the man until cops showed up and arrested him for third degree sexual assault of a minor. It could get him 10-years in prison.
