Did Lin-Manuel Miranda just become Santa Claus?

We think so, as he's given Hamilton fans quite the holiday treat.

Recently, the genius behind the Tony Award winning musical announced that he'd be launching The Hamildrops. We're sure you're asking, "What?" right about now.

Well, rather than release a Hamilton Mixtape Vol. 2, Miranda has promised to drop unspecified "new Hamilton content" every month for the next year. We're Satisfied with this news!

To kick off The Hamildrops, Lin-Manuel released an expletive filled new song (intended for a Benjamin Franklin character) which features music by The Decemberists. In a statement, the celebrated creative mind explained:

Willie Nelson To Get Out Of Jail Through The Power Of Song!

willie nelson to get out of jail for a song

Freedom in return for the sound of his voice? Who's his judge…Ursula from The Little Mermaid???

Actually, Willie Nelson's got it EVEN better than Ariel, because she had to completely give away her voice, but Willie Nelson only has to sing a song in court to get out of jail!

Yep. Texas Attorney Kit Bramblett recommended that Nelson's judge let him go free on marijuana possession charges in exchange for pleading guilty, a minimal fee, and…a live performance in court.

Bramblett is proposing that Nelson return to court and perform Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain, as opposed to performing community service…or serving time in jail.

Here's what Bramblett had to say about it:

"I am aware that he has been known to use pot for many years. I also know that Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson used to go out after supper and smoke a line of hemp and that's what marijuana's made out of."

Ha! But when will Willie's mandatory performance take place? More from Bramblett:

"The sheriff has threatened me with my life if I do tell because he says that 50,000 people will show up in the town."

We hope the judge agrees to this, and everything works out for you, Willie!

…And be sure to stay out of trouble, otherwise next time they might make you sing TWO songs! GASP!

Do U think Willie Nelson's plea deal is fair?

$100 Bill Goes 3D!

Filed under: Etc.


Ben Franklin got a make over!

On Tuesday, the U.S. Treasury debuted the new high tech $100 bill that includes a 3D security ribbon.

The new ribbon includes a series of digits and images that appear when the bill is tilted so there's no need to rush out and get those geeky glasses.

The reason behind the so called "state-of-the-art" security feature is to battle counterfeiters considering the $100 bill is the most recreated paper currency.

Pretty cool.
