Justin Bieber Gets Slow
When you slow down Justin Bieber’s “U Smile” by 800%, you get a song so unrecognizable that some commenters on Gawker purported it to be an entirely different song called “Echoes Across the Astral Wasteland” by a band called Photon Wave Orchestra. That should clue you into what this masterpiece created by Nick Pittsinger actually sounds like: no, not a slow jam––it’s way too slow for that. More like an ambient track you might hear while getting a massage or doing yoga. (Gawker compares it to Animal Collective!)
Pittsinger and Gawker insist that the bizarre but quite beautiful track Pittsinger created, using a free program called Paulstretch, is indeed a new version of “U Smile,” not a Photon Wave Orchestra song. Or an Animal Collective song. Or a Sigur Rós song. Some people find the Bieb’s voice to be the most soothing sound in the world, but for those who don’t, this 35-minute transformation of it might successfully get you through the rest of your Friday.
Here’s a YouTube fan video of the original “U Smile” for comparison’s sake:

If this doesn’t become the biggest video on the Internet, then I have no faith left in humanity.
I’m about to finish up my sophomore fall of college, and friends from home are getting married and having babies and sufficiently freaking me out.
He was a perfect date. I later got drunk and hacked his phone (who uses their birth year for a password? It was 1986, by the way #teamcougar). What I found was a text to a Kristina explaining his aforementioned sex dream he’d had about her while sleeping next to me in a luxurious hotel bed.
Single people love to whine about being single.
