    Toto's "Africa" has come home, so to speak, thanks to an installation by an artist who plans to play the song on loop in a Namibian desert -- for eternity. German-Namibian artist Max Siedentopf has set up the sound installation, called "Toto Forever," in an undisclosed location in the 1,200 mile-long Namib Desert. 'A ridiculous gesture': Ai Weiwei slams Trump's border wall, reconsiders US move The desert, on the west coast of Southern Africa, is around 55 million years old -- making it the world's oldest desert and the "perfect spot" for his work, Siedentopf, 27, told CNN in an...

    ST. LOUIS, Mo. (WCMH) – Video from a Missouri freeway shows two people ‘twerking’ on top of a moving vehicle. It happened Monday during rush hour in St. Louis. Video shows two people dancing on top of a Suburban. Another person is halfway out a window recording everything. The woman who recorded the video told KSDK she did not call police, but hoped posting the video to social media would lead someone to recognize the people. Police call this kind of behavior a safety hazard. “They could fall off of the car and cause other drivers to wreck. It’s a...

    Just finished shooting the initial day for a commercial at L.A. 's subway system because we thought it was going to rain and didnt want the actors to get wet for later outside shots.. The stupid overpaid teachers were making a big ruckus and taking the trains to DT L.A to protest again. I know for a fact, these clowns would never get caught taking the subway and ride cars to work. Our director told them to nicely pipe down/shut up due to the scene and it was costing us per scene He even added he gets it but this...

    Kevin Costner is still making movies, more for a TV audience than the big screen, but just the same, many are very entertaining. If you haven't seen "Draft Day", currently available on Amazon Prime, it's worth watching. I won't give you much of the story, but let me say, it's a feel good movie, about a Cleveland Browns General Manager, Sonny Weaver (Costner), who just eight hours before the start of the NFL Draft, agrees to deal his Number 7 pick this year, and his 1st round pick for the next two years for the overall number 1 owned by...

  • You Never Knew What These Misunderstood Songs Were Really About

    [Slideshow] It’s no secret that there’s a lot more to some songs than meets the eye. Some have hidden meanings, while others are so deeply personal to the songwriter that the average listener couldn’t possibly hope to understand. There are some completely misunderstood songs out there, though; songs whose lyrics have been so misconstrued by people over the years that the original intention was lost completely. Whether it is because of urban legend, misleadingly sweet chords that eschew sinister lyrics, or just plain misinterpretation, when the public gets hold of a song, it can morph into something entirely new.

    "Butterfly Dance" from Joseph Blanchard's album "Morning Light." Recorded in the hospital lobby where he volunteers. Note the lack of music on the piano. Joe can't read music, and composes and then remembers. Usually. May someone always be there to record him. http://www.joeblanchard.com
