Adorable moment between Tom Brady and Gisele on their Italian vacay this week ... the two lovingly shared an ice cream cone -- but it's got us all wondering, is that avocado flavor?!?! You'll recall ... the NFL legend is famous for never putting away sweets, and turning to the ultra-healthy avocado ice cream alternative whenever he wants to be somewhat naughty with his diet.

Backgrid To be fair to the 44-year-old GOAT, it seemed he only had a couple bites of the treat ... so, breathe easy, Alex Guerrero and Bucs fans. And, yes, if you were wondering, Brady is still working out despite the vacation ... he was spotted getting in a sweat sesh on a yacht on Tuesday before the QT time with his supermodel bae. FYI -- as for Brady's trademark avo … [Read more...] about Tom Brady, Gisele Share Ice Cream On Italian Vacation, But Is It Avocado?!

Opinions expressed are solely those of the author and do not reflect the views of Rolling Stone editors or publishers. When Joe Walsh, Glenn Frey and Don Henley of the Eagles wrote Life in the Fast Lane in the late 1970s, little did they know how fast that lane would become. In an Amazon world where we can order anything online and have it delivered within a few hours, our expectations have changed. We live in an “everything, all the time” world. Even the speed at which we watch and listen to online content has changed. Speed-watching has become a thing. For example, on YouTube to save time, you can increase the speed of a video to watch it faster. How do these increased expectations impact business? Investors may be inclined to look for a “hockey stick” pattern, in which there’s a short period of steady growth followed by a dramatic period of exponential growth. This can influence startups that are looking for funding to focus on things that may offer quick growth in the … [Read more...] about Everything, All the Time: Is Life in the Fast Lane Better?
Space is the place once again in the new Broken Bells video, which finds the duo of James Mercer and Danger Mouse exploring the final frontier with a slew of found footage as they perform “Control,” off their latest collaboration, After the Disco . Although the clip doesn’t have much to do with the epic alien love story the duo told in the “Holding On for Life” video , it features clips of Broken Bells cranking out the funky, punch-drunk cut alongside a montage space-related footage, from sun flares and moon missions, to crop circles and pictures supposed UFOs – some of which feature the spiky pink sphere that’s become the duo’s emblem. The “Control” clip has plenty to excite the Mulder in everybody who yearns to believe, and as scientist George Wald reminds us at the beginning: “I think there’s no question that we live in an inhabited universe that has life all over it.” Released back in February, After the Disco followed up Broken Bells’ self-titled 2010 … [Read more...] about Broken Bells Live Out Close Encounters in Their UFO-Themed ‘Control’ Video
