In a rare TV interview, John Mayer revealed he craves constant attention so much he has to stop himself from going to parties and surfing social media.
(Picture: Amy Willis) You can tell a lot from a person by their doodles. In fact, you can conduct a full on psychoanalysis from a drawing of a house. Yes, really. For example: We can presume that – despite his apparent preoccupation with boats – Steve here is a warm and friendly guy. He’s the […]
http://i.imgur.com/QWj52ee.webm We’re going to go out on a limb here and guess this man is double jointed. A Reddit user recently posted a video of his unusual talent to weird everyone out a bit. Several users theorised that the man has Ehlers–Danlos syndrome, which affects the collagen in body tissue, allowing joints to move in unusual […]
‘The Voice’ contestant Lara Lee has opened up about her life living rough, revealing that she was sexually assaulted when she was 12 years old.

The Devil’s Throat Cave, in southern Bulgaria, is, according to legend, the route used by Orpheus – the legendary Thracian musician and poet – to reach the Hades Underworld, where he sought to retrieve his beloved Eurydice. Adding to the allure of the cave is the fact that nothing carried into it by the waters […]
Throwing, swallowing and stashing are all common ways of disposing of drugs, but tying them to a helium balloon and letting them float away? That’s a new one. A driver in the United States apparently did just that after being stopped by a traffic cop. A YouTube video showed the cheeky driver shoving a balloon out of […]

Costume designed for Meryl Streep in ‘The Iron Lady’, 2011. The big new exhibition at the Southbank Centre in London “History is Now” http://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/whatson/history-is-now-7-artists-take-88866 is meant to address British postwar history. It does not do so. As a Scot who voted ‘No’ in the referendum I found the experience of visiting this show profoundly depressing. […]
Over the years, ‘Emmerdale’ has provided us with plenty of golden TV moments. The fictional village has played host to everything, from dramatic crashes to gruesome murders. But while the show’s scenes have stuck in our minds, we’re sometimes not so sure what the actors who starred in them have been up to since. What […]

An octopus’ slippery escape from an aquarium was thwarted at the last moment when a staff member intervened. Bosses at Seattle Aquarium were probably relieved after a worker flew into action to prevent the prison break. A video showed the renegade octopus ‘Ink’ attempting to slide over his tank before he was shoved back in. MORE: Surgeon […]
We were already pretty wary of Nigel Farage and co’s musical capabilities, after this video of DJ Mike Read performing an ‘Ukip calypso’ surfaced online last year. But nothing could prepare us for the unparalleled horror of this Ukip candidate giving a tone deaf rendition of one of Abba’s classic hits. In the bizarre video, […]
Two weeks ago, one of my favourite record shops, Counter Culture in High Wycombe, became the latest to close its doors – albeit, hopefully, temporarily due to the lease coming to an end. It may have been small, and it may have been slightly out of the town centre but like Oven Ready Records, the […]
