(PCM) Who said an internship at NASA couldn’t be fun? A group of NASA interns have created a hilarious parody of the hit Meghan Trainor song “All About That Bass” changing the title to “All About That Space” showcasing their love for all things intergalactic.

The video specifically spotlights NASA’s new space exploration craft Orion and the interns delightfully dance their way around the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas.

As you may have read, the Orion spacecraft completed it’s very first successful space flight back on December 5th and the video was created to help keep the excitement going about the spacecraft and its’ mission to one day take astronauts to the planet Mars.

The Softer Side Of Celebrities

(PCM) It is not everyday that we get a chance to report on the softer and more human side of celebrity culture. Most of the time the focus seems to be on the latest celebrity legal scandal, relationship woes, and fashion, essentially the superficial elements. Recently, two celebrities made headlines by showcasing their more human side.

Tom-Hanks2

The story about actor Tom Hanks and the NYC cab driver was one such story. A cab driver was traveling down Park Ave at the end of his shift and noticed a passenger attempting to hail a cab.

When he pulled over to talk to the passenger, he at first told him no because the passenger needed to get to 47th street which was way further away than the driver wanted to be at the end of his day. When the passenger looks disappointed, the cab driver had a change of heart and decided to make the trek out of the kindness of his heart.

It turns out that as the very thankful passenger who was chatting away with the cab driver was none other than Tom Hanks!  Once the cab driver made the realization he yelled out “WILSONNN!!” and he and Hanks, who starred in the film “Castaway” had a good laugh over the character reference.

Being the super-friendly guy that he is Hanks even agreed to pose for a selfie with the cab driver and also invited him out to a viewing of his new play “Lucky Guy”, as well as, greeted him backstage at the performance. Kind of an ironic title for the show, don’t you think?

Other such heartwarming celebrity story comes from American Badass himself Kid Rock, who recently made a very touching and surprise visit for one of his number one fans birthday celebrations.

Dan McGurk has Down’s Syndrome and has made it no secret that he is truly Kid Rock’s number one fan. He and his family tireless worked to get an invitation out to Kid Rock to attend his 30th birthday party which was held at Clarkson Union Restaurant in Clarkson, Michigan.

McGurk even made a YouTube video in hopes of garnering Kid Rock’s attention and it looks like it worked. Rock showed up to the party and the look of utter surprise on McGurk’s face was absolutely priceless and adorable.

Kid Rock sang “Happy Birthday” to McGurk and presented him with a limited edition photo, hat ,an autographed custom Kid Rock guitar and of course tickets to an upcoming show.

The Battle Is On Between Disney And Deadmau5

Deadmau5

(PCM) EDM superstar Deadmau5 is gearing up for quite the legal battle between himself and entertainment company Disney. The fight is over the similarities between Deadmau5 aka Joel Zimmerman’s mouse ears logo and the famed Mickey Mouse logo owned by Disney.

Zimmerman brought the fight into the social media realm when he posted a series of tweets urging Disney to “lawyer up” after they filed a motion in opposition to Zimmerman’s attempt to trademark his own logo in the U.S.

Zimmerman is also filing a counterclaim against Disney, as he discovered that they were using one of his most popular tracks “Ghosts N’ Stuff” in one of the promo videos on their website. The video in question has since been removed after Zimmerman called them out on social media.

Deadmau52

The Deadmau5 logo, which is a forward facing mouse head with large circular ears and two large eyes, is a registered trademark in over 30 countries and Zimmerman has been using the logo in the States for many years. Thus far, Disney is only opposing the U.S. trademark filing.

Zimmerman’s attorney claims they are ready for a fight to protect his intellectual property and that they will not be bullied by a large corporation such as Disney.

Disney had made no official statement in regards to situation.
