Karmin Commemorates 9/11 With Cover of 'I Can't Feel My Face'

Nothing fits right on this day: not social media, not brands, not brands on social media, not buying coffee, not unbidden joy, not #1 hits about cocaine, and certainly not Karmin.

Actual Idiots Need to Be Told Not to Call 911 About Facebook Outage

Last night, the internet suffered a devastating blow when both Facebook and Instagram went down for a short period of time during my nap. While I wasn't personally affected, apparently lots of other people were.

Quote on the 9/11 Memorial Is 'Shockingly Inappropriate,' Says Scholar
