Goodbye World Cup 2014

Hello Vengaboys!

They’re back! But then, did they ever actually go away? Those classics ‘Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom’ and ‘We’re Going to Ibiza’ never really stopped playing in your head!

Yes, it’s come to the end of the 2014 World Cup. I stopped watching after England went out but I hear there have been several more matches since then. Quite a lot more matches actually as England were shit and went out very early on.

To celebrate the end of the tournament, here is the Vengaboys new single ‘2 Brazil!’. It’s NSFW by the way in case the image below didn’t give that away!

Photoshop Transformation Music Video

Photoshop

Photoshop is a great tool, without a doubt, but this French music video highlights the moral implications of its use in society these days. Everyone knows that models and celebrities are ‘Photoshopped’ on the front of magazine covers but I didn’t realise the extent of the tools power. This can be seen in this music video where some French singer warbles on as her face is retouched and transformed from perfectly pretty to a Mila Kunis look-a-like.

I’ve no idea what she is singing about; she could be singing “My face looks so much better Photoshopped” “I worship the power of Adobe” but judging by the tone of the video, I think it’s a statement about how unrealistic and unattainable Photoshop perfection is.

Note: This is not Adobe Photoshop being used in this video. I use the term as readers will generally know of the verb ‘to Photoshop’.

50 Movie Star You Didn’t Know Had Changed Their Name

Olivia Wilde

(And A Few You Did)…

Here’s a link to Empire Magazine’s feature on the stars of Hollywood that have changed their names for one reason or another.

You know these types of things come up regularly in pub quizzes, so swot up! My favourite has to be that of Hollywood starlet Olivia Jane Cockburn (better known as Olivia Wilde).
