Moviemakers GrittyReboots attempts to save the world from bad TV as they resurrect the dead to recreate PBS’ version of their superhero team. Carl Sagan, Mister Rogers, Bob Ross and Bill Nye (the sole living member of PBS’ golden era) team up as “some people just want to see the world learn.” The nostalgia is enough to get anyone to understand that television doesn’t have to be awful.
Though, admittedly, I like The Soup (or The Stew here). Can we just leave Joel McHale and sloths out of this?

Meet Kate and Pippin: the world’s newest addition to the collection of animal odd couples. These cuties found love like no other. Pippin is only a fawn, so Kate the Great Dane takes care of him like an older bff. The two cuddle and nuzzle each other in moments of affection. Oh deer.
Kate and Pippin are just two animals that are a part of PBS’s new series “Animal Odd Couples” which premiered last night. Other odd couples include a lion and a fox, a dog and a monkey, and a goat and a horse that have “been together” for sixteen years. Things are getting pretty serious in the wild animal kingdom.

That was the question asked by PBS’ Idea Channel. Some people think dubstep is just noisy, repetitive drivel (for shame!) but if you really think about it, a lot of musical styles throughout history have experienced the exact same criticism.
Music is subjective and as our culture evolves, so does the music we find appealing. Over the past century, changes in technology and music genres have led to mainstream fans being obsessed with people like Skrillex. So instead of being all stuffy and rejecting dubstep as a genre, consider it a form of avant garde music. In ten years time, it’s going to be the norm and some other new fangled style of music will go through the ringer.
Luckily, the dude in this video explains it a lot better than me. Check it out above.
As if the Mister Rogers inspirational remix wasn’t enough, PBS now brings you a second favourite from The Joy of Painting, Bob Ross (as if his voice wasn’t soothing enough). I honestly didn’t think they could top it off, but I was wrong. The “Happy Painter” assures you that everyday is a good day with paint.
If everyone was like Bob Ross, the world would be a happier place. Who do you think PBS should remix next?
A fake news story claiming that rapper Tupac is still alive was posted on PBS’ website on Monday, reports Billboard.
Hackers apparently got into the network’s website and posted a fake story claiming the dead rapper, full name Tupac Amaru Shakur, was alive in New Zealand.
Many still believe Tupac is still alive, refusing to believe he is dead, so obviously the story came with some major attention. Way to fuel the conspiracy theorists, hackers.
PBS confirmed Monday that the website had been hacked and the story was removed later that morning. It had been posted on the ‘PBS NewsHour’ program website.
The program later released a tweet, saying “If you missed it: our site has been accessed by hackers. Thanks for staying with us.”
The hackers is a group apparently called ‘LulzSec,’ or ‘The Lulz Boat’ on Twitter. The group claims they are responsible for the act, and even posted a video which taunts the network.
As much as I do not condone this kind of action, I must say, the hackers were smart in getting the attention of the public. There are so many conspiracy theorists out there who still believe Tupac is alive, so posting a story claiming he’s alive is one of the smartest things I’ve ever heard of. Not that I condone it.
