Welcome to 2013. Welcome to the future. 2013 is not like other years. It's different. It's a whole new world. A world in which Grammy Nominee and general music visionary Al Walser is not only still alive, but will lead us all to redefine our very idea of art (seriously, think about it). A world i ... More >>
By Drew Millard Better Than: Watching Waka Flocka shop for shoes. Gucci Mane came onstage at Irving Plaza last night. GUCCI MANE CAME ONSTAGE. AT IRVING PLAZA. LAST NIGHT.

The image you see here means a lot to us at the underground bunker, where we keep an eye on all things Scientology related. And on this lazy Sunday morning, we hope you'll indulge us as we attempt to explain what it represents. Andreas Heldal-Lund, meet Chill EB. Chill, meet the devil.

It's not often that things are calm and soothing here inside the underground bunker. But after Judge Stryker gave the order yesterday for everyone just to chill out, we took it to heart.

The designer-toy world's biggest jerkbag thinks you're an asshole for reading this story.
In case you missed it, Donald Trump is sort of running for President. He's shown his seriousness about this by speaking at the CPAC political convention, and by taking a job at Fox News.
