Taylor Swift Releases White Noise

Taylor Swift fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of her new album, 1989, which is set to be released Oct. 27. Taylor has been casually releasing teasers from some of the album's songs, including track names, lyrics, and straight up releasing new songs (which are, apparently, about Harry Styles from One Direction). So things have been happening for T. Swift fans, which is why people got really, really excited when a new song popped up on iTunes simply called "Track 3." Without even bothering to preview the song, thousands of fans purchased the single... only to find out that the track was actually 8 seconds of white noise. Naturally, the song reached number 1 on iTunes in Canada.

If you've been eagerly awaiting to hear something new from One Direction, you're in luck: the band today announced their On the Road Again Tour dates for 2015.

The boys will launch their new tour in July 2015 in San Diego, CA, then visit states across the country before concluding in Boston, MA, in September 2015. But let's be real: with a new album on the way, more dates are probably on the horizon.

See below for tour dates and visit the One Direction page for more information on tickets.

World Series image

If you're anything like me, then you probably know nothing about sports. Like, nothing might even be a generous descriptor. But today, you probably know something is happening — the World Series is happening, in fact. And if you don't want to be left out of the conversation, then you should figure out a way to be part of the conversation.

As someone who knows absolutely nothing about baseball, I can't give you much. But I can give you some really basic facts, and then a few silly ways to decide who you're going to root for. Ready?

What to know

  • Game 1 is tonight. It starts at 8 p.m. EST.
  • Two teams will play: Royals vs. Giants.
  • This match-up is kind of weird. Nobody predicted it.

Reasons to root for the Royals

  • They haven't even made it to the World Series since their 1985 win.
  • Their colors are blue and white, which has a nice collegiate feel to them.
  • Paul Rudd is a Royals fan.
  • You can sing Lorde's song "Royals" in your head every time you think of this team.

Reasons to root for the Giants

  • It would be really cool for them to keep up the every-other-year winning thing they've got going on. They won in 2010 and 2012.
  • Their colors are orange and black, which is like a tigers, and tigers are fun.
  • Usually when people mention the Giants, they're talking about the football team, so in a way, these guys are kind of an underdog.
  • San Francisco is probably a cool city.

It's not scientific... but you have a 50/50 chance of rooting for the winning team, so pick one and go for it. Good luck!

World Series

This week, the Kansas City Royals and the San Francisco Giants advanced to the World Series. While the Giants have played in the World Series several times in recent memory, including two wins (in 2010 and 2012), the Royals haven't made it to the World Series since their 1985 win. So, you know, it's been a while, which means Royals fans are pretty excited about their team's victory, including Paul Rudd. Rudd, who was at Wednesday's game, was interviewed by reporters and said he'd be celebrating by throwing a party at his mom's. If you're not a Royals or Giants fan, then that party at Paul Rudd's mom's house is probably the most exciting thing about this news.
