ZHU Puts an Eerie Spin on Gorillaz' "Andromeda"

Credit: hypebeast.com

With just a week left before the release of their much anticipated album, Humanz, Gorillaz have been ramping up the promotional roll-out. First came news of a North American tour; then there was the announcement of the band's "Mixed Reality" apps, the group's first live interview and now the cartoon rockstars have started dropping remixes of the album's singles.

ZHU's remix of "Andromeda" puts an eerie, haunting spin on the D.R.A.M.-assisted single, doing away with the "Cha Cha" singer's feature and replacing it with a choir of increasingly ascending 2Ds laid over a thumping deep-house groove. The Grammy-nominated producer also sprinkled some hauntingly high-pitched vocals of his own to top things off.

Check out the remix above and be sure to check out Albarn's deep-dive into the song's meaning and '80s inspirations.

Instagram bait: Why Starbucks put a unicorn meme on its menu

To anyone who hasn't spent time on certain corners of Instagram, Starbucks' latest creation and the viral hype surrounding it might be a bit confusing.  The neon "Unicorn Frappuccino" clashes hard with the coffee chain's affected faux-Italian branding. It's not the sort of drink that one imagines ordering with words like "Venti" or sipping amidst light jazz. SEE ALSO: Starbucks unicorn frappuccinos to grace Earth for a limited time By most accounts, the blue-and-pink concoction, which transitions from sweet to sour, doesn't even taste especially good. None of that really matters to Starbucks, though. The limited-time item isn't meant to blend with the company's coffeehouse chic but rather its customers' social media feeds.

How the hell should you use your tax refund?

It might be here already. Since Tax Day has already come and gone, we hope it's at least on the way. But when you finally get that sweet, sweet refund, what the hell is the best thing to do with it? If you have overdue debts to pay, or you've been putting off visiting the podiatrist or something, you'll want to take care of those necessities first. But, if you have a bit — or a lot — left over, here are a few ideas. SEE ALSO: Wow, some stranger just gave us Trump's tax return and it's really weird 1. Make a donation. Perhaps you meant to budget for charity at the beginning on the year, but it didn't quite pan out. That's okay; no one is mad at you (we assume). You can still use your tax refund to catch up a little. Read more...More about Lifestyle, Utility, Watercooler, and Watercooler

Dreamlike color images of Petra and southern Jordan in the early 20th century

"Petra. Oleanders in bloom with figure."Image: Library of CongressBuilt sometime around the 4th century BC, the city of Petra in southern Jordan was the capital of the Nabataean society.The Nabataeans carved elaborate and beautiful structures directly out of the raw sandstone cliffs, and devised ingenious cisterns and water conduits to make the city both a fortress and an oasis along the caravan trade routes of the region.These images of Petra and its environs were created using the Autochrome process, one of the earliest color photography technologies. Requiring long exposures, the process used dyed potato starch grains to capture color in a dreamy, pointillist mosaic. Read more...More about Travel, Petra, Jordan, History, and Retronaut

Google's data center raises the stakes in this state's 'water wars'

Endless emails, map requests, web searches, and everything else we do online requires the use of energy-hungry, water-guzzling data centers.  For Google, that enormous thirst for water is causing controversy near Charleston, South Carolina, where the tech giant hosts a sprawling data center complex. Google wants to draw 1.5 million gallons per day from an aquifer to help cool the servers at its facility in Berkeley County. The data center already uses about 4 million gallons of surface water per day, the Post and Courier newspaper reported.

9 incredible ways we're using drones for social good

When it comes to alleviating some of the world's most pressing problems, perhaps we should look to the skies.

7 activists tell us the best thing about being autistic

Forget what you've heard — autism isn't something to cure. In fact, it's a condition we should embrace and celebrate. About 1 in 68 people in the U.S. are autistic, meaning they communicate and experience the world in ways not typically expected. There isn't a "missing piece" to their cognitive puzzle. And they definitely don't need your pity.  SEE ALSO: 8 ingenious innovations helping autistic children communicate Autistic people thrive because of their autism, not in spite of it. And the community will be the first to tell you all the glorious things being autistic brings to their lives. For Autism Acceptance Month, we asked activists to share with us the best thing about being autistic. Their answers challenge the idea that autism causes any sort of "suffering," and instead celebrate autistic pride, community, and passion.  Read more...More about Ask The Activists, Autism Acceptance Month, Autism, Activism, and Social Good

Dogs, ranked

All dogs are good, but some dogs are the best. Using a unique and complex algorithm that we cannot disclose (just kidding, we picked 50 dogs from the American Kennel Club website, gave each a score out of 10, then argued with each other in the case of a tie), we have ranked 50 good dog breeds from fiftieth-best to first-best. You may disagree with these rankings, and that's okay. It's subjective! But you have to admit that rating dogs is no easy feat — especially when they all deserve 12/10. SEE ALSO: Dog playing fetch on an ice rink is as enjoyable as you think it is And, remember: if you'd like to adopt a dog, be sure to check out your local shelter first. The pups there might not be purebred, but they are good as hell and they are ready to meet you. Read more...More about Animals, Dogs, Rankings, Lists, and Watercooler
