We Are So Not Friends, Zac Efron — VIDEO

Have you seen the trailer for the new Zac Efron movie? Looks about as enthralling as filling up your car with gas. Not a movie critic here, but luckily you don’t need to be — or even see the entire movie, for that matter — to discern just how incredibly stupid it is. The trailer speaks for itself. Sample the dialogue: “Whenever you guys are ready to start making some real loot, you need to holler at me,” says that contemptuous dude from “The Walking Dead.”

Can you think of a bigger crowning achievement or a more solid endorsement of your skillset – particularly for low end ambassadors like TrollPhace and Getter — than bringing it so hard during your set that you literally overpower the actual power powering your stage? His set shut down the bassPOD at EDC for a bit.

Kids sneak in to EDC 2015 — VIDEO

From skateboarding to skydiving, we’ve all seen those GoPro cameras used to capture an assortment of ill-advised adrenaline-fueled adventures most of us would never risk. It’s a safe bet that its creators probably never imagined that their tiny camera would used to immortalize ill-gotten gains on the Internet.

Flying the friendly skies to EDC

Wondering what it’s like to take a helicopter to EDC? Wonder no more. It’s exactly as cool (and as quick) as you’d imagine, with a flight path directly over the Las Vegas Strip — and past the miles and miles of traffic.
