A 72-year-old grandmother who works six days a week in a western New York McDonald s is enjoying her 15 minutes of Facebook fame.She raps for her fast food customers and co-workers.A co-worker videoed Alaine O Connor at the Williamson McDonald s and posted it to Facebook, where it was picked up by a Rochester NY TV news station.Alaine was married for 37 years, but after her husband left her eight years ago when she was 64, she says she has had to reinvent herself.The rapping began last Halloween when she came to work dressed as a gangsta and wrote a rap to accompany the costume.Huff/Post attempts to reach her and Alsup were unsuccessful.
50 Cent, the rapper who most recently made headlines for going into massive debt and having to file for bankruptcy, has quite a way with humor.In light of news that MTV s Cribs will be revived via Snapchat, the rapper teamed up with a travel site to parody both the show and his financial struggles.And that, ladies and gents, is how we get to 50 Cent giving you a tour of Hostelworld.No vertical videos, Snapchat-style here though.If you ever watched Cribs when it was on the air, the nostalgia is there – except for the irony that some of the stuff shown on 50 Cent s real episode of Cribs were allegedly never really his.Gotta at least give him credit for being able to make fun of himself, though.
Your Apple Watch rapping you on the wrist is one thing, but how about if you could put a supercharged Taptic engine at the tip of each VR-visualized finger?That's one of the possibilities Novasentis is talking about, pitching its new approach to haptic feedback with smaller, faster-responding hardware that could turn up in wearables, VR controllers, gamepads, and more from next year.The whole strap of your smartwatch could have embedded haptics, for instance, pulsing in one direction or another to guide you through a virtual map.Fingertips in a virtual reality glove could give the wearer the impression of tapping controls you manipulate in mid-air.The taps and pulses felt much more defined than those from an existing smartwatch, while the band suddenly started beeping in different tones when switched into higher frequencies.Someone shooting you from behind, for instance, could send shivers through the bottom edges of the controller; different types of weapon could recoil in noticeably different ways.
Hip Hop Dance VideoJust when you think you ve seen it all, a video comes around and gleefully reminds you that the Internet is a vast and seemingly endless reservoir of absurdity.Earlier this week, rapper Rich Home Quan — who you might recognize from the 2014 song Lifestyle or perhaps more recently from Lil Dicky s song $ave Dat Money — posted a hilariously absurd video depicting a laughably out of touch dance instructor trying to explain the ins and outs of Hip Hop.DON T MISS: Google Nexus phones won t run pure Android anymoreThe video quickly began to go viral on Facebook and has already amassed millions of views in just a few days.The video is accompanied by the tagline When ur Hip Hop AF and is most definitely good for a few laughs, that is if you re not too busy cringing.Thanks RHQ!Now we did a bit of digging in an effort to find out who this Hip Hop dancing guru is.
McDonalds I'm Loving ItEvery year, corporations around the globe spend untold billions on advertising.And while consumers have learned to ignore most advertising campaigns, there are a few that not only stand the test of time, but also manage to leave an indelible imprint upon our psyche.One of the most well-known and widely recognizable ad campaigns of the last decade is McDonald s I m Loving It slogan.Initially launched in 2003 with Justin Timberlake providing the vocals, the jingle associated with the slogan is easy to mimic, identify, and more importantly, impossible to forget.DON T MISS: Hackers are using remote-control software Teamviewer to hijack PCs and drain PayPal accountsNow, about 13 years after the jingle began getting stuck in our collective minds, we ve finally discovered the identity of the diabolical musical mastermind who created the incredibly catchy tune.During an interview with Hot 97 s Ebro Darden, Steve Stoute, the CEO of the marketing firm Translation, which created the campaign, divulged that Pusha T was the composer to the addictive jingle.
DJ Funk Flex still adheres to the unwritten rules of hip hop — and sometimes, that means calling someone out.Last July, Flex revealed on his Hot 97 radio show that Drake committed one of the cardinal sins of Hip Hop: taking rhymes from another rapper and passing them off as your own.Flex played three songs of previously unknown artist Quentin Miller rapping lyrics Drake would later rap himself on last year s If You re Reading This It s Too Late.It was a public flaying of the most successful rapper of this decade not named [email protected]x July 25, 2015In our interview, Flex explains he was disappointed in Drake using lyrics from other artists, because he placed the 29-year-old MC on his list of top five best lyricists, but now accepts the Canadian-bred sensation may just be a different type of rapper.When you re at the controller like this, Flex says while imitating twisting nobs, My arms are extended and I m screaming.

Facebook is getting slammed for twice removing transfeminine rapper Michete s post expressing solidarity with the Orlando massacre victims.The company also banned the rapper from the network and sent him a notification that bafflingly included a warning about transmitting underage porn.Michete wrote:The post struck a chord with at least some of Michete s network and started to spread far beyond his own Facebook friends.We removed the post below because it doesn t follow the Facebook Community Standards, Facebook said in a notification sent to Michete s account.The company did not respond to a request for comment from Gizmodo, but in a statement to Complex, Facebook said that: The post was removed in error and restored as soon as we were able to investigate.At that time, Facebook issued the same statement to Gizmodo about the post being removed in error.This might be because Facebook relies heavily on users to report inappropriate posts, and sometimes that system can be gamed or inaccurate reporting can trigger erroneous bans.
