Watch 30 Seconds To Mars Cover Rihanna’s “Stay”

Universal Begins Shutting Down Smiths/’Peanuts’ Mashup Tumblr

God save micro-blogging. It’s Friday, and like you we really don’t want to be at work anymore. UTG is fun and all, but most of us work day jobs that put us in front of monitors full of numbers and reports we pretend to work on while secretly sneaking off to enjoy whatever nonsense the […]
