Now a new Star Wars movie is coming, and that can only mean one thing ... MERCHANDISE!

This Website Tells You if a Band is Emo or Not (and Plays You Video of a Cat Watching Slayer)

I remember hearing the word "emo" the first time when I was maybe 12. The guy spat it out of his mouth like being emo was the worst possible thing in the world. He was talking about a band I liked... but he was a tool and he smelled bad, so I decided not to pay too much attention.

Since then I haven't really cared if someone dubs a band I like emo. No one seems to agree on what it means anyway.

Well, now it's simple! There's a website that will tell you if a band is emo or not. And It's gotta be correct! Because as we all know, the internet doesn't lie. Ever.

Finally, Facebook Lets You Search For Older Posts

Facebook is making a change that I don't hate. Weird.

I think it's incredibly frustrating when you can't find a particular post you're looking for. Like that sweet recipe for jello shots you know you saw. Or that one time you said that really funny thing and now you want to relive it. As one does.

Except you can't find it! Dammit Facebook, why can't we just search for older posts?! Well, now we can.
