This is clever, inspirational, and HIGHlarious all at once!
This weekend, at the Occupy Wall Street Protests in New York, Rufus Wainwright and Sean Lennon teamed up to perform a live rendition of the Madonna classic Material Girl in support of the movement!
Check it out (above)!
We're actually a little touched to see them both taking part in this, especially because of their fathers and what their music meant and inspired to the youth of the nation back in the '60s and '70s!
Very, very cool!
The times are changing, people!

This is absolutely incredible!
In light of the NYPD police brutality that has been going on with protestors at the Occupy Wall Street movement, a 24-year-old Marine veteran, already having completed two tours in Iraq, named Sgt. Shemar Thomas literally took on about 30 cops yesterday to chastize the unwarranted behavior on unarmed citizens!
Check it out (above)! It's EPIC!
And we have to say, pretty badass and inspiring!
We wish more politicians had this kind of experience and insight into the public!

When we read that Taco Bell is about to offer tacos made of Doritos, we accidentally said "Oh hell yes!" out loud. So loud. So so loud.
It's too bad it's not good for us. Moderation? Maybe we'll only try one??
The Doritos Locos Taco is basically a Taco Surpreme inside a shell made from Doritos. The idea, which may or may not have been spawned by a Facebook group with over 3,000 members called the "Taco Shells Made From Doritos Movement," started testing in Ohio last spring and has so far made its way to select areas of California.
But, they're only available in test areas… so it looks like a road trip to Fresno is on the to-do list this week!
Does this look delicious to U??

Rob Summers lost the use of everything below his chest after he got into a car accident in 2006.
In 2009, doctors implanted an electrical stimulator onto the lining of his spinal cord in an attempt to “wake up” his damaged nervous system. It worked, and within days he was able to stand up without help. After several months passed, he was able to wiggle his toes and then eventually take a few steps on a treadmill.
"It was the most incredible feeling. After not being able to move for four years, I thought things could finally change."
Unfortunately, Rob can only walk when he’s hooked up to the simulator device, and most the the time he still gets around using a wheelchair.
Doctors emphasize that this is not a cure, although it could help some patients regain some functionality in their limbs.
Science wins again!
