It went from a respectable 10,000 YouTube views to more than 2 million hits in just one day -- and the Web can’t get enough of this viral video from teen songstress Rebecca Black.
REBECCA BLACK, VOCALIST: “We’re drivin’ on the highway, cruisin’ so fast, I want time to fly. Fun, fun, think about fun, you know what it is. I got this, you got this. My friend is by my right, ‘ay.”
And faster than you can say, “Internet famous,” the blogosphere blew up with reactions...
From criticism -- DListed asks...
“Ever wanted to know what it would it sound like if a 5-year-old Ke$ha performed a song about the calendar on a water-damaged Casio keyboard after snorting glitter glue and swallowing a vibrating ball?”
ALEXANDER CARPENTER, VOCALIST: “7 a.m. wakin’ up in the morning, gotta be fresh, gotta go downstairs. Gotta have my bowl, gotta have cereal. Seein’ everything, that time is going." (YouTube/ AlexanderCarpenter)
But amidst the disbelief and criticism, a writer for BlackBook Magazine stops to wonder, “What’s really going on here?”
“Normally, you’d think it’s just a misguided video by a teenage girl and her friends. Thing is, it seems much too expensive for Rebecca to have made by herself—there’s at least a little production value to it. So it begs the question of Rebecca Black’s provenance. Is she real?”
Officially-validated information about Black and her music is scarce, but Guyism**** reports the most commonly circulated answer: a company called the Ark Music Factory.
“[The] business model involves producing songs for wealthy Southern California parents who think their child can be the next great pop star.”
A flabbergasted writer for TIME says, despite the universally negative reviews of Black’s song and video, perhaps she’s better suited for another entertainment genre.
“It's not apparent if ‘Friday’ was intended to be a parody of a pop song or not, but it would definitely be in Rebecca and Ark Music Factory's best interest to make like it was all along. … Sure, Rebecca Black won't be the next Miley Cyrus ... but she could have a future in comedy.”
Finally, Salon’s Mary Elizabeth Williams takes a more serious angle, using Black as an example of a fame-obsessed culture.
“...watching the parade of shiny, glittered up, aggressively smiling kids at Ark's launch party video from last month, it's hard to see anything but desperation for attention... And the only thing more horrifying than [Rebecca’s] terrible ’Friday’ is the sad, easily exploited longing for fame she represents.”
Currently, Rebecca Black has no official website, but the Ark Music Factory website has her listed as an official artist.

She calls it a “bridge too far.” Arizona Republican Governor Jan Brewer vetoed the controversial so-called “birther bill.”
“That bill would have required a presidential candidate to provide a birth certificate or a handful of other documents before their names could be placed on a state's ballot.” (VIDEO FROM KFMB)
If candidates couldn’t provide a long form birth certificate -- the bill would have allowed for baptismal or circumcision certificates. 14 other states have introduced similar legislation -- and it’s been rejected in Connecticut, Maine and Montana.
In an interview with Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren - Governor Brewer says the legislation just wasn’t necessary.
GOVERNOR JAN BREWER (R-AZ): “It is something that I felt uncomfortable with and I feel it serves no purpose. ... You know, bottom line is, I just have to call 'em as I see 'em. It doesn't help Arizona. This bill is a distraction.”
Governor Brewer grabbed national headlines last year when she signed a controversial bill giving police wide-ranging authority to detain suspected illegal immigrations. (VIDEO FROM KMSB)
So her rejection of the “birther bill” surprised many political analysts who are calling it a move against her own party.
REPORTER: “She didn’t win a popularity contest today with her own party.” (VIDEO FROM KPNX)
But if it’s a popularity contest with her longstanding critics -- count The Phoenix New Times’ James King among the fans of the veto.
“...big props must go out to Governor Jan Brewer... The bill was Arizona's far-right-wing response to the continuously debunked conspiracy theory that President Barack Obama is not an American citizen … despite it already being a federal requirement to land the job.”
But count Hot Air’s Allahpundit among the confused.
“She just started her new term so electoral politics is immaterial. Is there some core agenda item that she needs Democratic help to pass? Or is she trying to build goodwill with Obama for better cooperation on immigration? Or, just maybe, did she genuinely believe that the bill was stupid and embarrassing to Arizona?”
Supporters of the measure say it had nothing to do with President Obama -- but rather -- the quote
“integrity of the Constitution.”
CNN’s John King isn’t buying that. He asks Orly Taitz -- an outspoken skeptic of President Obama’s citizenship - to explain.
JOHN KING: “Mark me down as skeptical. ... Can you honestly say with a straight face it has nothing to do with President Obama? ... There is a federal constitutional requirement to run for president. Why does any state have to worry about that?”
ORLY TAITZ: “Because the ballots are state ballots. Each state has its own ballots and therefore there has to be a provision in the state ballot whereby, one, running for office, needs to prove he is a natural born citizen...”
If Brewer had signed the legislation - Arizona would have been the first state to pass a “birther bill.” Republican supporters of the legislation in Arizona say they might override the veto -- but it remains unclear whether they have the votes needed to do so.

This July, Los Angeles experienced a two-day closure of one of it's busiest freeways, The 405.

Westfield Culver City put on a weekend of events that proved we don't need a freeway to have a good time!
There were mock tailgate parties, video game, hula hoop & tricycle contests, Live DJ's and a "I Survived the 405" photo booth.
