Taylor Swift Parody "32": In Taylor Swift's song "22," she talks about a carefree night on the town with her girlfriends. In this new 10-years-removed parody courtesy of Fuse, the narrator talks about going to work, coming home to eat Chinese food while reading Fifty Shades of Grey, and trying to find a dentist. Raise a sheepish hand if this rings true for you! (We know we did.)

Fun Facts with Tracy Morgan: Miss seeing Tracy Jordan on 30 Rock? Here you can catch the next best thing, with Tracy Morgan and Jimmy Fallon reciting some interesting (and possibly untrue) "facts." Did you know that Scent of a Woman was originally called How a Woman Smells? We didn't either.
Six-year-old Drumming Prodigy: Avery Molek of Pennsylvania is just 6 years old, but you'd never know it by listening to him keep up with the rhythmic sensibilities of Alex Van Halen and Peter Criss. When his parents (who have no musical backgrounds themselves) bought him a drum set, they thought it would be a fun toy — but had no idea their son was a musical prodigy. Here, watch him play along with Van Halen's "Hot for Teacher," and check out his other videos (and tour dates!) on his website.
