The Running of The Drones: Drone Crashes into Spectators

An unmanned aerial drone crashed into a crowd of spectators at the first ever Great Bull Run in Virginia this weekend. The event held at the Virginia Motorsports Park was full of family fun festival featuring live music, drinking, a tomato fight and a Spanish style “bull run” where participants flee from two dozen large bulls, and try not to get gored.   Don’t worry, the drone was not sent from the government but rather a local television station using the aircraft to capture video footage of the event. At least this is the official story coming out of Virginia. Maybe the bulls were secret terrorists; I mean come on, what were they running from anyway? Next year they can hold a “running of the drones” where participants run from military drones in hot pursuit.

Lamar Odom Addicted To Crack, Missing for 3 Days

Khloe Kardashian’s husband Lamar Odom who also plays basketball for the Los Angeles Clippers was reported to be missing on a drug binge by TMZ. Odom checked himself into a rehabilitation facility as recently as last August and has been struggling with addiction to Crack and other drugs for the past two years. Supposedly Odom’s whereabouts where not known to his family for about 72 hours, however some sources are saying that he was never missing. Maybe it’s the drugs or maybe he just needed to get away from the Kardashians for a bit?

MTV Video Music Awards 2013!

Yesterday the Music Television network for some reason held an awards show for music videos; you know those things you watch on the internet.  The show was completely classy and no one did anything outrageous; just kidding, it was a hot mess.  Lady Gaga opened the show singing with a weird box thing on her head and then proceeded to do several costume changes. Miley Cyrus did a duet with either Beatle Juice or Robin Thicke while wearing an outfit which made the naked women from his video seem well dressed. And Justin Timberlake dusted off his old pals from ‘N Sync for a reunion performance before receiving the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Other than that there were a bunch of made up awards like “Song of the Summer” which went to One Direction.
