What People are Saying About the Latest Headlines


We decided to give our readers some shine and see what they thought about some of the burning questions on all of our minds. So, we went out into Times Square and asked about 50 random people their thoughts on some of today’s most serious, mind boggling issues. Find out what happened.



If Orlando Bloom and Justin Beiber were drowning, what kind of sandwich would you make?

With the recent brawl between these two Hollywood hotties, we had to know how people felt. If you are unfamiliar about the latest scandal, read about it here. Our hope was that some brave hero would rip off their shirt to reveal a large “S” across their chest as they answered with “a sandwich??? I wouldn’t be able to eat when there is danger afoot! Of course I would save them!” However, that didn’t happen. On the contrary, everyone couldn’t wait to divulge their favorite lunch choices. “I would have my usual: turkey on wheat, mayo, lettuce, and a little bit of mustard,” said one girl without hesitation. We learned a lot about the morality of the human race with this one question. Apparently, most people would rather dine on their delicatessen favorite before saving two of America’s sweethearts. Shame on you.

Above & Beyond Release 'Blue Sky Action' Music Video

'Blue Sky Action,' one of the singles off of Above & Beyond's still untitled upcoming album has already managed to awe listeners everyone, so it's only fitting that the music video be given a special deep and cinematic take.

The video is directed by Ken Clark, the same man who helped create their 'Sticky Fingers' music video last May. The old school yet futuristic sounding single fits in perfectly with the sci-fi backdrop of the music video, which tells the love story between a man who rummages for supplies in a desolate, post-apocolyptic world and the sleek otherworldly beauty who comes down from the sky. Sound familliar? "'Blue Sky Action' is part inspired by the first half-hour of the film Wall-E, which for me was one of the most moving, romantic films of its generation," Above & Beyond's Tony McGuinness said.
