APPS: Hero Boyfriend helps with relationships

smart phone

Some men are clueless when it comes to maintaining a romantic relationship, but now there’s an app to help guide them to what they should be doing. It’s called HeroBoyfriend and was developed by a heartbroken man after he was dumped by the “love of his life.” The app basically gives a guy reminders to make his girlfriend feel special. It will give personalized gift suggestions, date ideas and even self-improvement suggestions. One of the app creators says, “The app is all about helping to minimize the hurdles that men typically face when it comes to putting their best foot forward in their relationship. And in doing so the ultimate goal is to change the world by increasing the number of happy, lasting relationships.” In case you were wondering, the app considers a struggling man in a relationship, who they call “Joe Average,” to be a guy who doesn’t pay enough attention, forgets almost everything, struggles to express emotions, and doesn’t take care of himself. Would this app help you maintain a romantic relationship? (Daily Mail)

Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins told NME that he’s neighbors with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian — and almost drove West from the neighborhood before he moved in. Hawkins explained that he rides his bike regularly past the “big gnarly mansion where Kanye and his chick live,” adding, “This estate agent told me that he was showing him the house and he looks round and says, ‘Is this place secure? Can anybody get in or out?’ And then right at that time I came flying down the hill (on my bike) into the neighborhood.” Hawkins said that West complained at first but backtracked when he realized who Hawkins was.

MUSIC NEWS: Original Smashing Pumpkins drummer joins tour

Original Smashing Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin has rejoined the band for its upcoming North American co-headlining tour with Marilyn Manson, which begins on July 7th in Concord, California. This will mark the first time that Chamberlin has performed with the Pumpkins since 2009.

Frontman and founder William Corgan told USA Today, “We suddenly found ourselves in the situation of not having anybody lined up (to play drums on the tour). You can’t just grab somebody and say, ‘Play drums on this Smashing Pumpkins song.’ Jimmy’s drum parts are so incredibly technical and nuanced that it’s a very rare class of people that can step in and play.”

Chamberlin added, “(William) asked if there was any way I’d consider coming back for the tour. It’s a great opportunity not only to celebrate the music, but to celebrate the friendship and the legacy.” Chamberlin, who did three previous stints in the Pumpkins lineup, has no plans to continue with the band after the tour with Manson. He says his priority is LiveOne, a live event streaming company he founded out of Chicago.


TECH: Gmail adds “Undo Send” feature


Have you ever accidentally sent the wrong person an email? It can be a pretty embarrassing experience, and now Gmail will help out those who realize their mistake quickly enough. They’re doing this with a new feature called Undo Send, which works by delaying your email for a few seconds after you click Send, so you can take it back if you made some sort of mistake. After testing the feature for six years in public beta, Google announced in a blog post this week that Undo Send is becoming an official setting for all Gmail users. For users those who already were using the beta of Undo Send, the feature will remain on, while everybody else can turn it on via the General tab under Settings. The feature will let users choose if they want to hold their mail for 5, 10, 20, or 30 seconds. Unfortunately, Undo Send is not currently available on mobile, so you’ll have to stick to the old school way of emailing via your phone. (Mashable)

UPDATE: Dave Grohl may not walk normal for months – Docs

Foo Fighters Dave

An orthopedic surgeon says that Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl may not be able to walk normally for months after breaking his leg in a fall from a stage in Sweden earlier this month. Orthopedic Trauma surgeon Andy Murphy, who works at Nuffield Health Plymouth Hospital in England and also happens to play in a Foo Fighters tribute band, gave his professional opinion to NME, saying, “He’s not going to be able to walk normally, without a brace, for at least six weeks. And for a man who spends most of his time running around a stage at full speed, it will probably be a couple of months before he’s back to that level of action on the road.”

Murphy described the nature of Grohl’s injury, explaining, “Dave sustained a nasty fracture of the distal fibula, the small bone on the outside of the ankle. X-rays show the fracture was displaced and needed surgical fixation. He has a low profile locking titanium plate and screws holding the fractured bone together. His treatment looks excellent.”
Grohl was photographed in London a few nights ago, looking determined to stay mobile but also clearly experiencing some pain and discomfort.

The Foos were forced to cancel all the remaining dates on their European tour due to Grohl’s injury, which occurred on June 12th in Gothenburg, Sweden. Scrapped were two headlining dates at London’s massive Wembley Stadium, along with a third headlining slot at the U.K.’s prestigious Glastonbury Festival plus shows in Scotland, Belgium, the Netherlands and Switzerland. At press time the band has not changed or canceled any shows on its upcoming North American trek, which is scheduled to begin on July 4th in Washington D.C.
