Miserable Rock Star of the day: Millions of dollars, critical and commerical success, and legions of adoring fans can’t stop sports from getting you down, as the world is finding out from these shots of Jack White in the stands of a recent Chicago Cubs game. Although, he should really know what he’s in for if he’s watching the Cubs, am I right folks? (disclaimer: I know zilch about baseball). Perhaps the people sitting next to him were talking about White’s longtime nemeses The Black Keys? Or maybe he’s just hoping they don’t mistake him for Johnny Depp.
|—||Whilst decoding her tweets in an interview with Glamour Magazine, everyone’s favourite young non-Jennifer Lawrence actress Anna Kendrick let slip that she’s a covert Redditor, and a regular visitor to the nudity-happy r/GoneWild subreddit. So now you know if you’ve ever submitted phots on there, it’s possible Anna Kendrick has seen your boobs/butt/genitals/untidy room. Knowing the internet as we do, that’s more of an encouragement than a deterrent…|
Announcing Hitsville’s Game Of Throw-Ins, not just an excellent pun, but our very own Fantasy Football (that’s “soccer” to you across the Atlantic) league. With the Barclays Premier League kicking off on August 16th, and with our very occasional forays into the world of sports, we thought we best get in on the action for the 2014/15 season.

Wonderful Coincidence of the day: If there’s a fictional character who deserves a grandiose statue, it’s Parks & Recreation's Ron Swanson. Someone on Reddit posted this photo of a statue found in Philadelphia’s Walnut Street Theatre, which bares a startling resemblance to Nick Offerman’s moustachieod begrudging government worker, albeit in Roman garb. It turns out it’s actually a likeness of legendary Philadelphia actor Edwin Forrest… either that or Offerman is a Time Lord.
Rumour: Frank Ocean to release second album next month?: We’re all agreed that Channel Orange is pretty much a modern classic, right? It was voted our Album of 2012 by you lot, which effectively seals its place in history… and it appears the follow-up is very imminent indeed. There’s no official word from Ocean or any of his team, but this tweet from @theycallmeTUNE seems pretty confident the record is set for release next mont and will apparently be named Palabra (Spanish slang with a similar meaning to “word”). We hope it’s true because some Ocean magic would make for a very fine musical summer indeed.
The Internet Is Leaking of the day: There are countless t-shirts with the face of human meme Nic Cage on them, but now we have confirmation that the man himself owns one. We also now know he wears it with a cowboy hat, beaded necklaces, frilled chaps, a cane, and sunglasses indoors at a Guns N’ Roses gig. The world is a remarkably strange place.
No Hard Feelings of the day: Just to show they’re still buddies after that brutal battle on last night’s episode of Game Of Thrones, here’s a candid on-set photo that Pedro Pascal, aka Oberyn Martekk, posted on his Instagram of himself and Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson aka Ser Gregor Clegane aka The Mountain. Friendship can overcome even a trial-by-combat fight to the death.
"Best Fan Photo Ever" Contender of the day: If there’s anyone who needs lessons on wedding planning, it’s David Bradley, aka Game Of Thrones' Walder Frey. “Step one: Try not to kill everyone”
Conception Claim To Fame of the day: If you’re going to hold up a sign at a gig, especially a Bruce Springsteen gig, and block everyone behind you’s view, then you better make sure it’s a good one. Now, she has to conceive a kid at a Springsteen concert, and then that kid has to conceive a kid at Springsteen concert and so on and so forth. It’s the circle of life…
Marijuana Endorsement of the day: Snoop Dogg and Seth Rogen get high and recap Game Of Thrones… do you really need any more reasons to watch this?
