You Will Love These Vintage Covers of Modern Pop Songs

If you’ve got an old soul or nostalgic tastes, these music videos from Postmodern Jukebox are about to become your new addiction. Postmodern Jukebox takes new pop hits and basically runs them through a time machine.

For example, what if Lana Del Rey sang “Young and Beautiful” in the 1920′s?

Got chills? Try Ellie Goulding’s “Burn” in the style of a ’60′s girl group to warm up:

Once upon a time, Doo Wop was as rebellious as Miley Cyrus. In the Postmodern Jukebox, “We Can’t Stop” gets the 1950′s treatment, and becomes a way better song in the process.

If  you’re loving what you’ve seen so far, check out their channel on YouTube. They have tons of great videos and they’re always putting out new songs!

What do  you think? Can a cover song be better than the original? Let us know in the comments below!

Changing the World, One Cute Puppy Picture at a Time

puppy picture

Who hasn’t lost countless hours of their life looking at pictures of cute animals on the Internet? It’s one of my personal favorite pastimes!

Photographer Jessica Trinh‘s beautiful dog portraits are even sweeter than your average puppy pic. Trinh is putting her photography skills to work for shelter dogs to raise awareness about how many great animals out there are looking for homes.

She calls it “Project Let it Rain Love”. She says the dogs, “need someone to shower them with love and give them a chance to have hearts shower them for eternity.”

On her website, Trinh writes, “I wanted to give back to the community. My dogs have changed my life and I wanted more dogs to help people change their lives so I felt it to be appropriate to start a new project. I hope this project enlightens everyone on the story of a shelter dog and not only makes people think twice about giving up a dog, but gives these beautiful shelter dogs a chance for a new home with love.”

Did I mention Trinh is only 19?  Despite being young, she’s well on her way to change the world for a lot of dogs, and their humans too!

8-Year-Old Girl is Gnarliest Guitar Shredder Ever

I’m willing to bet that “playing like a girl” will stop being an insult within this little lady’s lifetime! At just 8 years old, Lisa-X is able to play rapid fire metal solos that will melt your face off and blow your mind.

She’s smaller than her guitar, but she sure knows how to make it sound big and mighty. Plus, the sweet grin she gives the camera as she’s bending a note around 1:46? Priceless!

Child prodigies like Lisa are absolutely amazing, but there’s really no wrong age to start playing guitar. Enrolling in guitar lessons is the perfect first step to get your musical journey going. The right guitar teacher can help you learn to play the music you love, and give you personal attention to make sure you’re progressing as you should.
