Wow! Who knew America could get so hard core about a soft drink. Unless you missed it, let me fill you in. Dr Pepper launched an ad campaign this week for its new diet drink, Dr Pepper Ten, and the whole thing's been about as well-received as Crystal Pepsi. The public outcry isn't over the product - which is only 10 calories! - but for the all-male everything approach to the ads, which feature aliens and G.I. Joe-style laser guns and the super-subtle tagline "It's not for women. " There's even a companion Facebook app that allows users to exclude women.

He's emo, he was steampunk before steampunk was even a thing, and Daniel Day-Lewis plays him in a new movie. He has a totally bitchin' beard, kills vampires and, oh, yeah, he freed the slaves, too. Meet the new Abraham Lincoln, hipster hero. "He is already the American with perhaps the most astounding, almost mythological, life story," said James M. Cornelius, curator of the Lincoln Collection at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield. Lincoln, Cornelius said, was born in a log cabin with a dirt floor and rose, "largely by his own efforts," to the highest office in the nation.

Can't we just elect Bill Pullman as president already?

Never before has an interview subject assumed/joked that RedEye was a communist newspaper. Fans of Boots Riley's veteran, socially conscious hip-hop act The Coup probably won't be surprised that he mentioned it. “Do people assume that [it's a communist paper] that don't know [it's not]?” asks the Chicago-born rapper, who moved away when he was one and has long called Oakland home. “I wouldn't be doing this if I didn't think that.” He's kidding (I think), but, contrasting with the band's often-danceable music (including the recent “Sorry...
