Kid interrupts group song with perfect rendition of 'The Imperial March' from Star Wars

Image
All talent show lineups should include Darth Vader's theme song. Twitter user Erin Gibson blessed the feeds with a video of her cousin's son hijacking the mic to sing "The Imperial March," Darth Vader's theme from Star Wars. The rendition gets him a lot of laughs, even though his co-performers aren't having it. At one point, he hilariously swats the girl to his right, who happens to be his older sister, away mid-song. Sometimes when I need to laugh, I think about the time my cousin’s son took over a group rendition of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star to sing the Imperial March pic.twitter.com/wnjy2rZFFQ— erin gibson (@actuallyerin) May 26, 2019Read more...

Image
What is the purpose of a roommate, if not to eat the rest of your OREOs when you're not looking?Technically, roommates aid in taking some of the financial burden that comes with renting a living space. But at what cost? If they're going to make life a living hell by trashing the space or sending paragraph-long texts about the air conditioning, is it really worth it? We'll leave that for you (or your rent) to decide. These 13 tales of roommate drama are harrowing. Proceed at your own risk! 1Furry alarm clock "Had a room mate who bred ferrets. They back into corners to shit and the musk smell can get pretty over powering. Not a knock on ferrets but they have to be cared for and let out under controlled conditions when there are more than six. I was sleeping, one night, when I was half awakened by a tickling on my leg. Brushed what ever it was away and pulled my hand from under the blankets with a small female ferret, its teeth firmly planted onto the little piece of ski…

Need a caffeine fix? Nespresso's Essenza Mini espresso maker is on sale for $51 off on Amazon

Image
When you only have so much real estate on your counter, compact kitchen appliances are a must. That can be problematic when you're in the market for a new espresso machine, as many popular models easily take up a square foot of space or more.Of course, space-saving alternatives to traditional espresso and coffee machines *do* exist. For example, you can forego the kitchen counter entirely if you whip up a quick coffee enema in the bathroom à la Gwyneth Paltrow. (That was a jokePlease don't do that.) We happen to be partial to the Nespresso Essenza Mini, the smallest single-serve espresso machine ever made by the premium coffee company, and a pretty adorable one at that. If you buy it in the funky lime finish, you can save $51 through Amazon right now. Read more... More about Coffee, Nespresso, Espresso Machine, Mashable Shopping, and Tech

'Super Mario Maker 2' hands-on: What a delight

Image
Super Mario Maker 2 is so much fun.I only played about an hour of Super Mario Maker 2 for the Nintendo Switch at a preview event, jumping between the course creator, story mode, and course world, and every time I had to switch between modes I was bummed out that I didn't have more time to mess around in the previous one.That's a fantastic sign. I never played Super Mario Maker for the Wii U or 3DS because I didn't think I would be into the tedium of laying down platforms, item boxes, and enemies, and I felt like I absorbed enough of the custom levels by watching other people play them online. Boy was I wrong. Read more... More about Nintendo, Nintendo Switch, Super Mario Maker 2, Entertainment, and Gaming
