Here’s video of a Malaysia Airlines jetliner that was reportedly shot down while in Ukranian airspace, near the Russian border. Around 295 people were on board. What an awful thing for this country to go through twice in six months.

Watch: Weird Al’s new songs keep getting better. Today he takes on Lorde
Follow micdotcom

The thing that’s really great about Weird Al’s effort is that he’s spreading the wealth marketing wise. “Tacky" was an exclusive to Nerdist; Vevo got "Word Crimes”; and now “Foil" is a College Humor joint.
This means that he has not one, not two, but three big-name video outlets working to promote a single album. It requires coordination to be this good at marketing yourself while working with so many players. It also makes Beyonce look like she’s not trying hard enough.

This is some bullshit. My friend, undocumented immigrant, journalist and immigration activist Jose Antonio Vargas, had been detained in Texas. #FreeJose #IStandWithJose

One year ago, journalist Jose Antonio Vargas revealed to the world that he was an undocumented immigrant — building his entire career, which included time at The Washington Post and The Huffington Post, on a lie. Vargas looks back at the past year in an interview with BuzzFeed, where he considers the weirdness of becoming an activist, his friends lost (many in the news industry), and his friends gained (Mark Zuckerberg, Aaron Sorkin). Great piece.

From the archives—a great piece on Jose Antonio Vargas for some backstory.

"Weird Al" Yankovic: Handy

Handy (Parody of Fancy by Iggy Azalea) -"Weird Al" Yankovic

I played this for my wife, who is a property manager. I haven’t heard her laugh this hard in weeks.

Also: The video for “Tacky.” Somehow, Weird Al still has it.
