Yesterday in Denver, a man and woman were both shot in the leg and a child and dog were grazed by bullets after the city’s 4/20 event was gunned down during Lil’ Flip’s performance.
This is more shocking and disturbing news to add to all the shocking and disturbing news coming out of the USA this week. What was supposed to be a peaceful, happy event where people could celebrate the legalization of marijuana for the first time was marred by yet another terrible act of violence. If this doesn’t make those senators who voted against Obama’s proposed gun legislation wake up and realize their mistake, then I don’t know what will.
My thoughts are with everyone who was affected by the shooting. Here’s hoping they can catch whoever was responsible for such a senseless crime.
Upsetting the angsty 13-year-old in me, My Chemical Romance announced yesterday that they are calling it quits after 12 years together.
In a statement released on their website, the band said:
“Being in this band for the past 12 years has been a true blessing. We’ve gotten to go places we never knew we would. We’ve been able to see and experience things we never imagined possible. We’ve shared the stage with people we admire, people we look up to, and best of all, our friends. And now, like all great things, it has come time for it to end. Thanks for all of your support, and for being part of the adventure.”
Being my first concert ever, I’m clearly “NOT OKAY” with this like many of their fans.
Here are 10 reasons why we’re upset about My Chemical Romance’s break-up.
1) They made marching band outfits stylish:
2) They made teens feel “OKAY” about themselves:
3) They were also the masterminds behind every angsty teen’s theme song:
In yet another edition of “Things Didn’t We Ask For This,” the first ever panda-themed hotel is set to open in China later this year.
According to Reuters, the hotel will officially open in may with room rentals costing approximately $48 to $80 per night. While we doubt the employees will walk around and serve residents in panda costume, it would be funny if they were all like evil panda.
But considering that these photos are devoid of actual guests (except for the one), this looks like the perfect set up for a sad panda story line. Just look…
Oh, I hope my friends come soon. I e-mailed the directions to them days ago! I hope they didn’t get lost…
Brace yourselves, folks. Because this video might just make you cry.
In what appears to be a mock Public Service Announcement geared to hit us right in the feels, this video features some adorable sloths in a bucket BEGGING to be rescued by us. Surely, it can’t help that Sarah Mclachlan is playing in the background. Because right now, I’m actually bawling my eyes out watching this video.
MAKE IT STOP!!! MAKE IT STOP!! I just have way too many feelings right now.
I really wonder what happened to this cat to make him look so forlorn, bored and miserable. Did someone steal his food? Is there nothing to watch on the TV?
I REALLY NEED TO KNOW. My heart is just so broken from watching this.
Happy cats= a better world.
The final single off Ed Sheeran’s debut album ‘+’ finally has a music video. But before you go and watch it, you better bring some tissues.
Fresh off from penning One Direction’s latest single ‘Little Things’ , “Give Me Love” tells the story of not falling in love, but love lost. Featuring a sad and lonely angel played by Australian actress Isabel Lucas, the video has her playing cupid, shooting arrows at random people to make them fall in love.
While Sheeran doesn’t appear much in the music video, fans will be glad to see him sitting in a cafe drinking coffee as Lucas’ character looks at him sadly. While I’m not entirely sure what all of this means, my guess is that Lucas’ character is in love with the singer but isn’t able to get him.
It’s a dark and artistic video by Sheeran, who’s previously featured Rupert Grint as his impersonator in the music video for ‘Lego House.’ But considering the melancholy tone of the song, I think this piece is lovely yet tragically romantic.
Watch the video here:
I always feel a sense of triumph whenever I get rid of the nasty little bug that’s been pestering me all day long. But after watching this video, I have now learned to think more carefully about my actions.
Serving as an elaborate prank and art installation, this tribute to a dead cockroach is endearing and depressing at the same time.
Depression among teenagers is a very serious issue. That’s why when Hana posted this PSA about being sad I was totally feeling for her — whether it’s dealing with parents, rumours, dating — sometimes being a teenager SUCKS.
Hanna cries herself to sleep every night and can’t even bring herself to speak to the camera, opting instead to write her messages on Post-it notes. She decided to share her feelings via webcam, but it turns out what Hanna needs isn’t a friendly person to listen to her. What she actually needs is a therapist to guide her through her gaming addiction.

The upcoming ‘Glee’ death is going to be a sad one, guys.
Jenna Ushkowitz, who plays Tina Cohen-Chang on the show, found filming the mystery ‘Glee’ death “really hard,” reports CTV.
An unnamed character will pass away in the ‘Funeral’ episode of the current season and Ushkowitz admits the whole cast were upset when filming the scenes.
“You know it was really, really sad. Any kind of death is sad and it brings you back to a place you don’t really want to go. So it kind of affects everybody. It was really hard but the episode is done really, really well.”
The actress, 25, hopes fans will “appreciate” the storyline and thinks they will like watching the “sad” scenes.
“It was really sweet and I think people will appreciate it. It was done in the right way. I think they’ll be sad but I think they’ll feel for the characters who will be affected by it. Any death, and especially on ‘Glee’ since you don’t expect something like that so for that to happen, I think you’re like ‘Oh, wow.’ I think fans will be shocked a little bit, and not expect anything at all. I think fans will like it.”
Who will it be? Will it be the wheelchair-bound-Artie who finally meets his demise? Or will it be the ever-so-annoying Rachel (let’s pray it is.) Guess we can only find out on May 17, when the episode airs.
