Around the Web – 11/14/13

around the webSon can you play me a memory
I’m not really sure how it goes
But it’s sad and it’s sweet
And I knew it complete
When I wore a younger man’s clothes

– Billy Joel

  • Nick Cannon, or Mr. Mariah Carey, hasn’t been in anything good since Dave Chappelle included him on his show. He’s got a new video from the people at Funny or Die and it’s not too bad. It’s got some NSFW language in it. (Funny or Die)

Watch this video where the people from Airbus demonstrated that the can do it in 78 seconds. (Quartz)

  • Here are 10 shows that got completely screwed by their networks. All 10 of these are true. (UpRoxx)
