BBC: One of South America’s few remaining uncontacted indigenous tribes has been spotted and photographed on the border between Brazil and Peru.

The Brazilian government says it took the images to prove the tribe exists and help protect its land.

The pictures, taken from an aeroplane, show red-painted tribe members brandishing bows and arrows.

More than half the world’s 100 uncontacted tribes live in Brazil or Peru, Survival International says.

Twister!

Gawker: Weezer’s new music video features web stars like Chris Crocker, “Evolution of Dance” guy, Gary Brolsma from “Numa Numa,” and Afroninja (who it turns out is a very good stuntman except for that ). And they actually do stuff! In most meme-collecting videos, everyone just shows up; in Weezer’s each web meme character is redeemed. The Diet Coke and Mentos guys get to rock out. Afroninja shows that despite that one famous screw-up, he really can kick ass. Chris Crocker is comforted. The narrative and the sheer number of web fads make this the best of its genre.
