The Daily Word in Anal Obsessed Cops, Crack Smoking Mayors and Perfect (Mechanical) Students

The Daily Word

Don't forget to use your turn signal in New Mexico. Our cops are waaaay into butts.

Bill de Blasio becomes New York City's first Democratic mayor in 20 years. Some say his son's impressive Afro made the difference.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford admits to smoking crack, but it was probably when he was "in a drunken stupor," so no big deal.

Teachers who complain about students on social media should probably stop doing that. Especially if their status update contains the words "I can just kill these kids."

But here's a perfect student: a 240-year old mechanical boy that can be programmed to write just about anything.

And the Metropolitan Detention Center faces more overcrowding: This time it's from 30,000 pounds of unpopped popcorn.

Jackson 5 vibe still alive?

Jermaine Jackson aims to create a modern-day Jackson 5

Upon reading that Jermaine Jackson was on a quest to find five Australian artists to turn into a modern-day Jackson 5, I was a little perplexed, maybe a little befuddled. Jackson 5 were one of my favorite groups as a youngster because they encapsulated the joy and freedom that many associate with childhood. In other words, they’ve always been a perfect soundtrack to anything resembling happiness (in my humble opinion). C’mon, who doesn’t love “I Want You Back”? Just take a listen to their greatest hits if you’re a skeptic. So, what exactly is Jackson trying to accomplish? Is he trying to revive the soul-group aesthetic of a past generation? Or is he simply trying to realign himself with pop culture to give his name some longevity and weight?

Your guess is as good as mine, but in an interview with UnderCover, Jackson states that “you just don’t see the kind of band or that kind of mania that the Jacksons created any more.” Jackson is even wrangling the kids online by using the Internet to give his endeavor an extra boost. Using online social media and a website, JJ5TV.com, where users and viewers can give their opinions and feedback, Jackson can pick the top five people to take JJ5 to the brink of stardom. (Oh yeah, JJ5 is the name of the group). So, keep your eyes peeled, your mouse in hand, and you could be one of the voices that decides who and what JJ5 will be—assuming you care, of course.

Anti-Social is relief for the social media-addicted

Do you have a computery job from which you take breaks throughout the day to check in on Facebook or the Twitter? A software developer has created an application for Mac users that helps quell the urge to engage in the time-wasting habits related to social media. When activated, Anti-Social makes it impossible to log on to certain sites—as dictated by the user—unless you reboot your computer. Read about it, or listen to NPR’s story here.
