Twitter Adds Video To Its’ Mobile App!


(PCM) There is some incredibly big news for Twitter fans as the company announced several new features including video. According to, the new video service allows users to access their phones camera with a single touch of the button.

Users can also snap photos and edit those photos and video clips without having to leave the app. Twitter, enlisted actor Neil Patrick Harris to announce the new services and he uploaded a quick video of himself and an Oscar night sneak peek. As many know, NPH will be hosting the upcoming Academy Awards broadcast.

VIDEO: Meet The Royal Concept!

Rock is a dying breed of music — and that’s a shame, to be sure — but there is a band that I recently came across that gives me hope that rock, as an art, is NOT dead. Ladies & gentlemen, meet The Royal Concept!

This band — originally from Stockholm, Sweden — debuted their five-song EP on iTunes earlier this week, and also dropped the video for their first single, “Gimme Twice,” at the same time.

As soon as the single hit radio, it became the #1 most added song at Alternative according to BDS. It’s a testament to the track’s sheer catchiness and instant appeal, paving the way for even bigger things to come.

The always hard-to-impress Jason Flom — the legendary Lava/Atlantic A&R rep who signed such acts as Kid Rock, Matchbox 20, The Blue Man Group, & Simple Plan — has signed the band to Lava/Atlantic. We can expect to see a lot more from the band in the future!

Here is the video for “Gimme Twice.”

VIDEO: Otis the Skydiving Dog

My dog, Shoko, is 3 years old, and is quite possibly the laziest dog in the history of canine-dom. This is a dog that considers the walk from my room to the bathroom as the equivalent of the ING NYC Marathon. Aside from his laziness, he is a dog of a discerning (actually, PICKY) tastes: Kibbles’n’Bits isn’t enough for this mutt’s delicate palate. No, only the finest Italian foods (pesto, cheeses, pasta) will satisfy this precocious pup (I blame my father, may God rest his soul, who often shared Italian delicacies with my dog, unbeknownst to me. Also thanks to my father, my dog only understands commands in Sicilian, and will look at you with a “CHILE, PLEASE!” look on his face if you command him in English). He barks at every squirrel that dares to scamper across the trees, but hides under the bed if the mailman comes to my front door with various packages filled with editorial bribery.

Despite this obvious few-fries-short-of-a-Happy-Meal brain capacity of my beloved pooch, I do love the little guy. In fact, I refer to him as my “fur-kid.” But despite my love for my fur-kid, I can’t help but think that the fur-kid could take a page or two out of Otis’ book.

Otis is a 10-year-old pug who likes to feel the breeze as he & his owner go careening towards the Earth. His owner, Will Da Silva, tells the Sacramento Bee that Otis has sky-dived 64 times over the past 9 years. Da Silva used to work at a parachute store, and one day, as he was careening towards the Earth, he got the brilliant idea to strap the dog to the front of his parachute.

In comparison to my ‘Fraidy-Dog, Otis didn’t resist the harness when he was first strapped in. Da Silva’s fiancee thinks that Otis likes sky-diving because it reminds him of the feel of an open car window. (Uh…yeah…maybe if you were driving the Autobahn on the daily…)

VIDEO: Taking “Economic” To a New Level

When Luke Clark Tyler, an architect in Manhattan, was looking for new digs, he wanted something centrally located and economically feasible.

As he’s a single vegetarian with no children, he needed to go with something that made the best use of whatever little space was available.

So, for a reasonable sum of $800 per month (you can’t pay those prices ANYWHERE in the greater New York area), he found this 78-SQUARE-FOOT apartment. (Quite economic, considering that there’s a palatial 90-square-foot apartment for about $1000/month.)

According to Neatorama, Tyler has every luxury: “a Murphy bed (that he made himself), a couch, a microwave, a refrigerator, and a closet.” He shares a bathroom with four other tenants.

(And, to put this in perspective: for all of these luxurious accommodations, he’s paying $10.25/square foot.)
