That Time Pavarotti and James Brown Got Together For an Unforgettable Duet

 

I had no idea this performance even existed until recently. The Godfather of Soul and the King of the High C’s together on stage singing a duet? Unbelievable!

This is from a recorded performance of a series of concerts entitled “Pavarotti and Friends” which was held during the 90s. Here we are blessed with a stirring rendition of James Brown’s, “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World”. May both of these legendary musicians rest in peace. What incredible voices.

Friday!
Seal slaps kayaker in face with octopus. End quote
Seriously though
I regret to inform you
Hey hey, a Ford fiesta!
I can tell this guy is gonna be the king of Dad jokes
And the academy goes to
Incredible. Terrifying, but incredible
I have so many questions
Don’t be like Dave
Meanwhile at Cosmo
Pink Floyd, Venice ’89
Charles, is that you?
Snapped a photo of a rare and majestic albino buck—mid sneeze
Huge space fan
It needed to be said
These are the things that keep me up at night
When you realize your best friend is a wizard
Making a moment
Until next week

Ikea’s latest recall is terrifying

The company is recalling Calypso lamps that pose “laceration hazards.”

Months after Ikea recalled a product that killed two dogs from its first line of pet furniture, Ikea announced a sweeping recall of a popular ceiling lamp that has a tendency to fall off by surprise above unsuspecting people (and their pets), showering them with dangerous glass shards and “posing impact and laceration hazards.”

Alexander Gerst Captured Some Incredible Shots of Typhoon Trami from Space

 

European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Alexander Gerst recently shared a series of incredible images of Typhoon Trami from the International Space Station, where he is currently serving as Station Commander for Expedition 57.

Trami was originally a category 5 super typhoon but has since weakened to a category 3 hurricane with sustained wind speeds of approximately 195 km/h (121 mph) as it prepares to make landfall in the Ryuku islands (southwest) of Japan this Friday.

According to CNN, ‘Trami comes on the heels of Super Typhoon Mangkhut, which cut a swath of destruction through northern Luzon in the Philippines less than two weeks ago.’

Check out the incredible images of Trami below which Gerst described, ‘as if somebody pulled the planet’s gigantic plug.’
