!! OMG, Puppy has extra tail on his forehead, is the cutest ever !!

Is this puppy magical? His rescuers think so. They named him Narwhal after the arctic whales that have large tusks, but his unique feature looks more like a tail right between his eyes. Narwhal was taken in by Mac’s Mission in Missouri, which rescues dogs with special needs. The pup has been checked out by a vet, who determined that his unique feature isn’t harmful to Narwhal’s health. Narwhal seems blissfully unaware of how popular he is. InsideEdition.com’s Mara Montalbano has more.

The cutest! Check out Narwhal above!

!! OMG, a Q&A with Michael Stipe !!

Despite his apparent radio silence, Michael Stipe has been anything but idle since the dissolution of his legendary band R.E.M. in 2011, keeping himself busy as a visual artist based in New York City, but last October, he re-emerged in a surprising return to the music world with new solo material.

Without warning, one of the most iconic vocalists and performers of our time presented an entirely personal communiqué via his new single, “Your Capricious Soul,” released in conjunction with and in support of a mass protest held by the UK based non-violent environmentalist group Extinction Rebellion, with all proceeds from the single going to the organization.

In addition to unveiling his solo musical endeavour, Stipe also recently published a second book of visual work, Our Interference Times: A Visual Record, created in collaboration with Canadian artist Douglas Copeland.

And, in a near-comical torrent of activity, Stipe’s former band R.E.M. are simultaneously celebrating the 25th anniversary of their divisive and pivotal glam rock stomper of a record Monster with a special edition re-release. Following R.E.M.’s ascension to superstardom and celebrity with the release of their 1992 album Automatic For The People, Monster was the twisted, feedback-soaked response that saw the band confronting rumours around Stipe’s sexuality as well as the mindfuck of sex and death in the arena of rock stardom.

Having just returned from a jaunt in the UK and Europe promoting all three projects, Michael Stipe chatted with OMG.BLOG about his new work, his many transformations, and how it feels to be a Queer icon for more than thirty years.

!! OMG, LISTEN TO THIS: TR/ST releases video for ‘IRIS’ from ‘The Destroyer – 2’ !!

Check out the latest from TR/ST‘s album Destroyer – 2! Iris, directed by Muted Windows, premiered today over on V Mag.

Capping off a five-year hiatus, TR/ST’s Destroyer diptych reflects an odyssey of emotional and sonic growth. As the one-man, neo-darkwave outfit told V earlier this year, “I hope [that the listener has] some sort of strong feeling. I think indifference is the worst thing…You don’t need permission from the ‘big person above’ to make a record, put it out, go ahead and do some shows, and connect with people.”
