Cellos, Awesomeness with — Say you haven’t seen anything cool today? Then check out the following arrangement of Guns N’ Roses “Welcome to the Jungle” performed by Croatian musicians Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, which is blowing up on YouTube right now. And did I mention it’s played on cellos? Because it is.

Seriously, you can't get these guys wet.

Peas, Black Eyed — A Central Park concert last Thursday featuring the Black Eyed Peas left fans tired, angry and wet after the crowd waited upwards of eight hours in both heat and rain for the band to take the stage only to have the show canceled due to lightning. Many concert-goers were upset, not taking the time to even think about what lightning and water could do to a band which clearly is made up of state-of-the-art, cutting-edge music robots.

Pinchot, Bronson — TV Guide writes that former Perfect Stranger Bronson Pinchot has been cast to appear on the new tween-focused Disney channel show Shake It Up, a sitcom about a young dance troupe. And that’s today’s installment of News There’s No Way of Repeating Without Looking Like a Huge Weirdo.

Risk — Columbia Pictures, following on successes of the Transformers and G.I. Joe film franchises, have hired screenwriter John Hlavin (The Shield) to adapt the classic board game Risk into a big budget feature-length film. The only catch? The film will only be screened in basements, and no females will ever see it.

Springfield, Buffalo — Saturday night saw the surviving members of beloved sixties icon Buffalo Springfield — Neil Young, Richie Furay and Stephen Stills — reunite on stage for the first time in decades at this year’s Bonnaroo music festival. At the end of the band’s set Young took the microphone to declare that the reunion was “the greatest thing we’ve ever done,” which means he has clearly forgotten time in 1967 when the band’s tour bus was involved in a three-way accident with a semi hauling tequila and an amphetamine truck.

Trolls, HuntingEntertainment Weekly reports that Harry Potter adaptor Chris Columbus has purchased the American rights to remake the Norwegian hit thriller Troll Hunter, which began its American run on Friday. So just to recap: you can wait four and a half years for Chris Columbus to get a script worked out and approved, special effects designed, actors cast, film shot and edits made — and enjoy the film featuring English speakers — or you can just go ahead and go see the movie in theaters right this second. Your call, America.
