When Vine first debuted, most people’s first reaction was “well, gifs with sound – whats so special about that?”
People like Darren Criss and Tyra Banks have shown us that Vine can actually be great in the right hands. While Tyra Banks’ Vine is straight up entertaining, Darren Criss’ Vine is adorable and is bound to make you smile.
The fact that Darren is so active with Vine is ironic considering the actor doesn’t tweet often – I don’t know why though, it’s not like he’s busy or anything. Oh…right…Glee, Starkid, music…Okay, maybe he’s a little too busy for Twitter. Or way too busy.
Still, although his life is hectic, Darren is kind enough to tweet Vine videos for all his fans and they are all great. They will make you laugh, smile, and sometimes question Darren (tsk, tsk snoring on set).
Ryan Murphy, we have a situation in the auditorium: we have lost Blaine. I repeat, Blaine is asleep.
His Vines also give you a taste of what it’s like on the Glee set as the cast goofs off between takes. Many familliar faces make appearances in his videos, and Kevin McHale even does a little jig! Darren’s Vine shows us that he really is as much as a goof as we all thought, but we love him for it because normal is WAY over-rated. His dedication to Vine is a beautiful one.
Note: if you play these vines on a loop while being on another tab, you will hear: snoring, random noises, and singing.
If that’s not incentive to go look at all of Darren’s Vines, I don’t know what is. Oh no, wait. He’s Harry Freaking’ Potter. That should be all the proof you need.

Looks like we have a future Grammy award winning musician at hand. Just four months old, baby Eilish gives all she’s got while playing the keyboard on an iPad.
Kuha’o has been playing the piano since he was 3 years old and has been blind since infancy. Now, he’s 15 and can play most songs after hearing them just once.
The video editor wanted to see what would happen if Kuha’o heard dubstep song “Cracks” by Freestylers and the result is unbelievable!
Watch it below:
Vanilla Ice is on his way back into the limelight whether you like it or not, Perez Hilton reports. The former ‘rapper’ has been cast in an upcoming Adam Sandler comedy entitled I Hate You, Dad! – costarring Andy Samberg and Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester.
The premise of the movie will focus on Sandler, who moves in with his son (Samberg) and future daughter-in-law (Meester), only to immediately start butting heads with her. Ice will surprisingly not be playing himself, but the supporting role of Antonio, a gay wedding coordinator from Long Island. Really?
James Caan is also reported to play Leighton’s actual father. I’m actually quite impressed with this cast, despite Vanilla Ice, so it may be worth checking out.
Sean Anders and John Morris will be directing from a screenplay by David Wain and Ken Marino. Sandler is also producing through his Happy Madison banner along with Jack Giarraputo and Heather Parry. The movie is scheduled for release on June 15, 2012.
Meester most recently starred in “The Roommate,” meanwhile Vanilla Ice was last seen on the big screen in the 2002 teen comedy “The New Guy.” Ice is also playing Captain Hook in an upcoming theatrical production of Peter Pan in England. Looks like someone is focusing on his acting career. God help us all.
I’m not a huge fan of musicians turning into actors. Only the very few can actually make that transition, like Jennifer Hudson or Justin Timberlake, so I don’t think Ice’s role sounds like an Oscar-winner. I’m also not a huge fan of Sandler, so this movie is looking a little meak for me – but could be good. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
Karen Elson, the (lucky) British singer/songwriter/model married to musician Jack White, is set to release her first solo album this month, reports NME.com.
The album, The Ghost Who Walks, will be released on May 25 through White’s label, Third Man Records. It was also produced by White.
Elson is heading out on tour this summer in support of the record, and will hit spots in Europe and North America. The tour begins May 23 in Berlin, Germany and wraps up in Brooklyn, NY on June 20. Elson comes to Canada on June 16 at Toronto’s El Mocambo and then heads to Montreal’s Club Lambi on June 17.
In other news, Jack White’s most recent music endeavour, The Dead Weather, just released their second album, Sea Of Cowards. The (super awesome) bluesy rock group, which includes members from other bands The Kills, The Raconteurs, and Queens of the Stone Age, hits Toronto’s Sound Academy on July 15.
