Who would have thought?! Even hard rockers have a guilty pleasure pop song or two that they just can’t get out of their heads, just like the rest of us.
It’s almost like he’s trying to make a career out of playing football or something. Impressive, but can you try it now with 6 sweaty tacklers coming after you?

Foo Fighters guitarist Chris Shiflett has some great news for their fans—the band is working on its next new album!
He said: ”We actually just started making a new Foo Fighters record within the last few weeks. We’ve started rehearsing. It’s good getting back to work. It was a very short hiatus. We’re going to start recording the new Foo Fighter record at the beginning of next year.”
Chris said fans can expect to hear more details in the next few months.
Dave Grohl revealed that the new Foo Fighters album is written and he also hinted that the set will drop in 2014.
He also teased Foo fans by saying the album LP will be made, “in a way that no one’s ever done before”.
Grohl said: ”Well, I’ll tell you, we have been in our studio writing and in the past few weeks, we’ve written an album. We are going to make this album in a way that no one’s ever done before, and we’re pretty excited about it.”
Grohl also admitted that the band hasn’t recorded any of the tracks in the studio, but he still thinks the set could be out by next year.
He said: ”It’s a little way off – it’s not ready to happen right now, but I think next year is going to be a really big year for the Foo Fighters without question. It’s going to be great, I can’t wait.”
The ”Couchbunker” features a hidden gun safe, with room to stash up to 40 rifles and ammunition. Bulletproof cushions are also an option for the couch that comes in several colors.
A spokesman for the company that makes the “Couchbunker” says the hidden panels in the cushions will stop a .44 Magnum at point-blank range.
The couch sells for $7,000.
Do you have Grill Skills? If you don’t, you will by the end of this kickass gem from the late 80s. RIP, Dave!
Don’t do that, Francis… You’re gonna spoil your appetite!
In the iTunes store, there now sit apps that tell you what strangers to bang, which friends to bang, and when to bang. I suppose there now needs to be one that tells you how you bang. Meet Spreadsheets.
Spreadsheets (oh! I get it now!) launched in the Apple store August 1. It costs $1.99 for the month of August, $2.99 anytime after.
What the app does is simple in concept and somewhat complex in practice: It literally quantifies how good you are at sex. You place your iPhone on a “bed, in the car, on the couch, in your pocket, on a trampoline, in a hammock (both traditional and banana), at the club, at your in-laws, in a tent, etc.” and the app will count the number of your thrusts, the pitch of your partner’s, uh, scream, and how long your performance lasts. Then, it’ll spit out data that says you were responsible for, say, 110 “thrusts per minute,” or a record-setting 18-minute session. If you use Spreadsheets regularly, you’re given achievements. You can show these achievements off to your friends. Your friends will either high-five you or not speak to you for a while.
The makers promise that Spreadsheets doesn’t record playback audio or video, but, as BetaBeat points out, we’ve all been burned by certain unnamed apps before. So, who knows. Personally, I’m super apprehensive about it all—yet undeniably intrigued.
Also, I think they might have hired James Deen to make this sample picture:
Seriously, somebody teach us! This is pretty clever.
The second trailer for Machete Kills brings new action from its absurd cast. Finally we get to see more of Mel Gibson in action. Oh, and Sofia Vergara’s boob guns are back too. This movie gets more ridiculous with every clip, and that’s exactly how it should be. The original Machete was positioned as a campy b-movie, as is the sequel.
Wikipedia tells me that Robert Rodriguez came up with the idea for Machete when he met Danny Trejo while filming Desperado. He thought Trejo should be the Mexican Jean-Claude Van Damme and crank out a movie like Machete every year. I couldn’t agree more.
You can still check out the first trailer here.
