Siri Sings Backup Vocals in Latest Flaming Lips Song

Favorite
- -

Storied psychedelic alt-rockers The Flaming Lips released their first song of 2012, and it makes clever use of Siri's vocals. Titled "Now I Understand," it turns Siri's "I don't understand" error reply into an existential quest for meaning that lies at the heart of the human condition. DEEP.

(It's actually pretty good, too.)

All this only months after someone taught Siri to rap. At this rate, she'll get signed to a major label.

Selfishness Set to Music

The collection of self-centered brats who were livid about not getting an iPhone for Christmas has creeped from the Twitter feed into our hearts (specifically the parts of our hearts that like to hate things). It's been so popular, in fact, that musician/comedian Jonathan Mann decided to set their tweets to music. If music be the food of laughter and/or hate, play on.

Video contains language appropriate only for foul-mouthed ingrates.

Etsy seller Will Rockwell made this "audio amplifier" from a trumpet. There's no electronics or circuitry - the acoustics of the victrola amplifies the iPhone's music on its own.
