New Star Wars doc unravels the series' funniest and most enduring mystery

Sunday Sep 15th 2019

Most Star Wars fans are familiar with the famous A New Hope blooper where a random, nameless Stormtrooper doinked their head on a Death Star bulkhead. A true classic.

The identity of the clumsy Imperial soldier has been a mystery for as long as the movie has existed. And now, a new Jamie Stangroom documentary titled The Empire Strikes Door (omg), is poised to solve it.

This whole thing looks like a hoot, from the "Every generation has an idiot" tagline to the lineup of legitimate Star Wars celebrities who apparently lent their time to getting this thing made. I can't wait to watch. It'll be out Sept. 25 on Stangroom's YouTube page. Read more...

Allow this dog to convince you that he's a baby

Sunday Sep 15th 2019

The internet can be extremely stressful at times, but it can also offer 25 seconds of pure, wholesome bliss that you can watch on a loop. Take this video of a dog pretending to be a baby, for example.

The precious "Staffordshire bull terrier pit bull cross" seen above is named Louis. According to the video description, his owner explained how he joined the family when he was just six weeks old and had just been taken off of his mother's milk.

"He would suckle in his sleep a lot so I decided to give him a binkie to see if it would soothe him a little, he took it right out of my hand and started suckling it like a little baby and wouldn't give it back," the description reads. Read more...

Please enjoy Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley dancing to Lizzo's 'Truth Hurts'

Sunday Sep 15th 2019

The truth is, Lizzo's "Truth Hurts" is the anthem we needed in 2019.

The song was released in 2017, but it recently surged in popularity, topping the charts, bringing us laughter and joy in the form of DNA test memes, and even gaining the attention of people like Hillary Clinton. 

With a catchy beat, empowering lyrics that touch on self-love and question men's actions, and, of course, Lizzo's stunning voice, "Truth Hurts" is a straight up jam, one that not even members of Congress can turn down.

On Friday, during Congressional Black Caucus week, Congresswomen Ilhan Omar and Ayanna Pressley busted a move to the song and shared footage of their delightful dancing on Twitter. Read more...

Ash Ketchum is FINALLY a Pokémon League champion and fans are going bonkers

Sunday Sep 15th 2019

Ash Ketchum is finally a winner.

After more than two decades of struggles and near-misses in the Pokémon League, Ash finally scored himself a championship trophy. It happened in the latest episode as the Alolan League came to a close, more than 1,000 episodes into the long-running anime.

The race to the championship led Ash into a showdown against his friend, Gladion. Their dramatic match-up pitted two Lycanroc Pokémon against one another, and Ash pulled out a win in the end.

Ash has been a loser so many times, fans have just come to expect a downer outcome every time he steps up to compete. So as you might image, Pokémon fandom lost their collective shit over the weekend as it sunk in that Ash is finally a winner. Read more...

Unpacking Mike Fiers' incredibly bizarre baseball beard

Sunday Sep 15th 2019

It's been a tough weekend for hair.

As many of you know, Joe Keery got rid of his iconic luscious locks (RIP,) and now, we have the curious case of Mike Fiers' beard to discuss. 

For those who missed it, the Oakland Athletics pitcher debuted an extremely unique curl of facial hair at a game in Texas on Saturday night. He appeared to be sporting a beard that resembled the letter "G" and only covered half of his face. You love/hate to see it!

New look for Mike Fiers…#RootedInOakland

Google is pulling the plug on YouTube's TV-friendly browser interface

Sunday Sep 15th 2019

Enjoy YouTube's "leanback" interface while you can. A pop-up message on the streaming video site's TV-friendly landing page says it'll be gone soon.

There's no indication of when it will be going away or why, but Mashable reached out to Google for comment. The pop-up message makes it clear that TV watchers will have to turn to supported devices like game consoles or streaming boxes as a user-friendly alternative for watching YouTube in the living room.

"This version of YouTube will be going away soon," the pop-up message reads. "You'll still be able to view, but you can get an optimized experience on a supported device." Users are then pointed to a YouTube help page that runs through exactly what qualifies as a supported device. (You probably own one.) Read more...

Life-size Lego model honors the great Iron Man

Sunday Sep 15th 2019

Things may not have ended well for Iron Man in Avengers: Engame, but the beloved hero will live on in fans' hearts and, of course, their Lego recreations.

At the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con, for instance, a team of Lego builders created a stunning life-size model of Iron Man, which stands at 6.5 feet tall and weighs 188 pounds.

The elaborate building process is shown in the video above, and Lead Model Designer Greg Omartian and Senior Model Builder Jeff Rushby discuss how they assembled the Lego hero using a whopping 35,119 Lego pieces.

Over the years, Lego builders have given fan favorite super heroes like Captain Marvel, Thor, The Flash, and more the life-sized model treatment, and they continue to be damn good at capturing likenesses. Read more...

This cup holder car mount is super cheap, will change the way you drive

Sunday Sep 15th 2019

TL;DR: The U-Grip phone mount will keep your smart device still while you navigate — pick one up in the Mashable Shop and save $47.

Still thinking about that cup holder car mount for your phone after that WeatherTech CupFone Super Bowl commercial months ago? We've got good news for you. You can get an alternative for way cheaper. Meet the U-Grip Cup Holder Car Mount.

After dropping your phone between the seat in your car and your center console more than once, you realize you desperately need a car mount. But most of the ones on the market either partially block your view (windshield mounts) or partially block your airflow (air vent mounts). The U-Grip, on the other hand, sits comfortably in your cup holder and features an adjustable neck that can rotate up to 360 degrees for the perfect viewing angle. Read more...

The mattress of their dreams: One couple’s quest for a good night’s sleep

Sunday Sep 15th 2019

Pivotal Purchase is an ongoing series highlighting a watershed shopping moment — the thing you bought that made you feel like you were financially stable, that changed your perspective, that made you realize you were really, truly, finally an adult.

When I landed my first job out of college, my mom bought me an extremely practical housewarming gift for my first “grown-up” apartment: a high-quality, queen-size mattress. I’m sure she did so because she knew I couldn’t afford to buy one on my own, but, to me, the bed was a signal: that I’d outgrown my twin-bed years, moved beyond that dreaded collegiate extra-long, and was now an adult. Or at least a rudderless 22-year-old pretending with all her might to be one. Read more...

In loving memory of Joe Keery's hair, gone but not forgotten

Saturday Sep 14th 2019

It's with heavy hearts that we report Joe Keery, whose luscious hair sent teenagers and grown adults alike swooning, got bangs.

The Stranger Things star appeared at a dinner hosted by Chanel with the remains of his once-glorious hair hacked away. What was left can only be described as a Will Byers-esque bowl cut complete with choppy FRINGE BANGS. His hair, known for its voluminous waves, also appears straightened. 

Let's just take a moment of silence to remember a legend. 

What prompted Keery to get rid of his signature mullet, the one characteristic that single-handedly carved him a spot in America's collective heart? The man once gave a detailed interview to GQ, describing the very process that breathed life into his hair, and told the reporter, "Do I get recognized? I guess it depends on if I’m wearing a hat or notThe hairdo is a dead giveaway. There’s nothing I can do. It’s just the way my hair grows." Read more...

Keke Palmer not knowing Dick Cheney is the new meme for ignoring your ex

Saturday Sep 14th 2019

Keke Palmer's reaction to Dick Cheney is, frankly, pure art. 

The former Nickelodeon star-turned-Hustlers power woman took a lie detector test for Vanity Fair on Wednesday, where she answered questions about her birth place, her real name, and her dating preferences. When asked whether her character on the Nickelodeon show True Jackson, VP was a better VP than Vice President Dick Cheney, she balked. 

"I don't know who this man is," she said, shaking her head. "He could be walking down the street and I wouldn't know a thingSorry to this man.

Iconic. According to the lie detector, Palmer was telling the truth when she said, with her whole chest, that she did not know Dick Cheney.  Read more...

Skip the Avengers marathon and watch students dance to 'Infinity War' and 'Endgame'

Saturday Sep 14th 2019

It would take about 48 hours if you were to watch every movie set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, according to some deep investigative work by Screen Rant. To be clear, that doesn't account for breaks to eat, sleep, pee, and go outside. That's two days straight of various planets, and eventually the universe, in peril over and over and over again. 

You could do that, if you were a truly depraved soul. Or you could skim Wikipedia summaries and then watch this delightful 7-minute video of a high school homecoming dance that sums up Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame with some fun choreography.  Read more...

MIT scientists create the blackest black that has ever blacked

Saturday Sep 14th 2019

Engineers at MIT have created a material that's so black it set a new blackness record.

This new ultrablack material, reported by MIT News Thursday, is made from vertically aligned carbon nanotubes grown on chlorine-etched aluminum foil and it captures 99.995% of light, making it about 10 times blacker than the previous record holder, Vantablack.

To show how the material eats light, MIT artist-in-residence Diemut Strebe collaborated with MIT engineer Brian Wardle to coat a 16.78-carat natural yellow diamond in the yet-to-be-named material. It basically makes the whole diamond disappear; there are no discernible features in the photo above. Read more...
