The popular singer-songwriter crafts a fun and dreamy love song in "Nothing Really Matters."
Singer-songwriter, Gabrielle Aplin has come a long way from posting acoustic her cover songs to Youtube.
That is precisely how Aplin amassed her following, though – by showcasing her vocal chops and acoustic guitar skills through dynamic re-imaginings of songs by the likes of MGMT, Mumford and Sons, Bob Dylan, Adele, and Ed Sheeran. These covers would lead to Aplin's being signed by Parlophone records in February of 2012. It did not take her long to break into the mainstream. By December of 2012, Aplin landed herself a number one hit on the U.K. Singles Chart for her cover of Frankie Goes to Hollywood's "The Power of Love."
Aplin is back with another offering for the Singles Chart, this time in the form of an original song, "Nothing Really Matters." The new song sees Aplin setting down her acoustic guitar and folk sensibilities in exchange for a more pop-oriented, synth-driven love song. "Nothing really matters, no, nothing really matters but you," Aplin playfully sings over a huge, stadium-ready chorus.
The song is as bouncy and fun as it is ambient and sincere. Sweeping synths and quirky samples of Aplin's vocalizing provide the backdrop to an exciting and giddy love song. "Nothing Really Matters" is a meticulously produced and expertly executed track that deserves a spot on the pop charts – don't be surprised if you hear it dominate the airwaves in the months to come.

There's an entire genre of YouTube videos that consists of nothing but news bloopers, and they're equal parts hilarious and panic-inducing.
"Right after the break, we're going to interview Erik Weihenmayer, who climbed the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, but he's gay—I mean, he's gay, excuse me, he's blind."
Back in the early 2000's a young news anchor in New Mexico had a slip of the tongue on live TV that has enterred the annals of news blooper history.

Cynthia Izaguirre had just gotten done reporting on a separate story discussing activism for gay rights, and was setting up a segment with the first blind man to climb Mount Everest, and her thoughts got twisted on the way to her mouth, resulting in a 14-second clip that would live on in infamy.
Now that Banksy's "Flower Thrower" trademark has been revoked, anyone can profit off his work.
This week anonymous street artist Banksy officially lost the European trademark to his "Flower Thrower" mural.
The guerrilla graffiti artist had engaged in a prolonged legal battle with the small greeting card company Full Colour Black—which was selling products featuring the image of a Palestinian man throwing a bouquet of flowers. But now a panel at the European Union Intellectual Property Office has announced their decision to revoke the artist's trademark on the grounds that he could not definitively prove himself to be the mural's creator.
