Vote! Google's new Doodle wants you to

google-doodle.jpg

It’s voting — with a Google twist.

The latest homepage icon for the search giant got a red, white and blue twist today in honor of the election. The colored paper ballots spell out “Google” as they are fed through a vote counter.

The best part? When you click on any part of the icon, it takes you to the search results for “Where Do I Vote” and you can enter your address and find out exactly where your polling place is. Great news for procrastinators the morning of the election — or those of us who just need a quick reminder. It also gives you all the information about whether you’re eligible, voter laws in various states, and registration requirements. It’s so easy!

What are you possibly waiting for (those of you that are U.S. citizens and 18 and older)? Remember: If you don’t vote, you can’t tweet about voting.

New Google Doodle celebrates Bob Ross

Art history majors, your time has come.

The popular Google Doodle feature on the Google homepage got an artsy twist today in honor of what would have been Bob Ross’ 70th birthday (The beloved painter and TV personality passed away in 1995).

Ross is best known as the creator and host of the PBS show The Joy of Painting, which ran for over a decade (1983-1994) and instructed people how to create oil paintings in easy, step-by-step instructions.

A fun added detail on Ross’ Doodle is the squirrel on his shoulder. In addition to his painting, Ross was an animal fan who often adopted wildlife creatures, squirrels in particular. The furry friends often made appearances on the show. In fact, the Internet recently unearthed old video of Ross feeding a baby squirrel. It’s simply adorable.

Feeling crafty? Many Ross clips are still on YouTube. Check out an autotune of his class — the Internet’s favorite way of honoring someone! — below, and then get to work on your stuck-inside-during-Hurricane-Sandy art, east coasters. READ FULL STORY

Nick Offerman offers his moustache-growing tips -- VIDEO

Moustache aficionado Nick Offerman, who’s a spokesperson for Movember — a month-long moustache-growing campaign that raises funds for prostate and testicular cancer initiatives — elicited the help of sheep herders and Tibetan monks to tame his facial hair, but you don’t need to resort to such extremes. According to the Parks and Rec star, the manliest journey of your life starts with baby steps: First “hammer a nail,” then “tolerate a crying baby,” and when you’re ready, “eat a raw onion.” It’s official, Offerman is our generation’s Tom Selleck.

Carrie Ann Inaba falls off chair while judging 'Dancing With the Stars' -- HILARIOUS GIF

I just want to make sure everyone gets to enjoy this in low-quality pixelated form as much as I enjoyed it in high-definition television form. Here’s Dancing With the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inahhhhhh-ber getting struck by a tidal wave of sexual energy (thanks to Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd’s rumba) and falling off her chair during tonight’s performance show:

“LET THE BABY-MAKING BEGIN!” Carrie Ann screamed; then toppled over while saying “That was ridiculous.” OH WAS IT? Not to be outdone, Bruno Tonioli promptly splayed himself face-up on the judges’ table in his usual “Take me. Love me! Devour me.” position.

It was bound to happen! I’m just surprised it took 15 seasons. (And a little bit shocked it wasn’t Bruno instead.) She’s fine, by the way, otherwise I would never have posted this. Yeah right!

I give Carrie Ann’s performance a 10. “Tehhhhhhhhhn!” READ FULL STORY

George Clooney sings 'Sweet Caroline' with Neil Diamond -- VIDEO

From Ocean’s Eleven to his throwback leading-man aura, George Clooney has sometimes projected a Sinatra vibe — but he’s no Blue Eyes when it comes to singing. Nevertheless, the actor semi-reluctantly joined Neil Diamond in a rendition of “Sweet Caroline” Saturday night at the 26th annual Carousel of Hope Ball in Los Angeles where the Oscar winner was honored for his humanitarian efforts. He was presented with the Brass Ring award by Shirley MacLaine, who described him as the “most generous, sweetest, charming human being,” and the event raised $2.5 million for the Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes.

Clooney only belted out a few words (“so good, so good, so good”), proving there are limits to his talents but none to his suavity.

Willow Smith covers Adele's 'Skyfall' -- VIDEO

(Children of) stars! They’re just like us. Everybody wants to be Adele.

And lately, being Adele means covering her hit James Bond theme, “Skyfall.” The Girl Who Whipped Her Hair, Willow Smith, tackles the moody tune — even playing piano — and the results, which she uploaded to YouTube, aren’t half-bad.

This isn’t the only Adele/Skyfall news recently. After her theme song sent the world ablaze, it was also used in a new version of the 007 trailer. Skyfall is in theaters in the U.S. Nov. 9.

Check our Smith’s version of the chorus below: READ FULL STORY
