Ah, the sweet, sweet sound of silence.

There are certain occasions in the life that call for the complete absence of noise, and the moment you plug your phone into your car's aux cord is most definitely one of them.

There is nothing more annoying than gearing yourself up you to listen to the song that's been stuck in your head all day only to be met with the blaring sounds of whatever is first in your music library.

Well, one Twitter user has finally found a solution to this pesky little issue, and it's absolutely genius.

Samir Mezrahi has released a ten-minute-long track consisting of nothing but pure uninterrupted silence, designed specifically for anyone who is fed up with listening to Calvin Harris' Acceptable in the 80's every time they get in the car.

What's more, the song is actually climbing its way up the US iTunes chart. Currently placing at no. 30, Silence (feat. Khalid) sits just one spot behind Ed Sheeran's Shape of You.

And it looks like Justin Bieber better watch out, because Samir is after that number one spot. 

But really, how funny would it be if that actually happened? 




Jude Law has stepped in to replace Irish actor Michael Fassbender in his upcoming movie Genius.

The Sherlock Holmes actor will star opposite Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman in the movie, which is based on A. Scott Berg’s biography of editor Max Perkins.

Perkins worked with literary great Thomas Wolfe on a number of his books, and the pair developed a complex friendship which changed their lives forever. Intriguing!

Law will play the celebrated writer, while Firth will star as his editor Perkins. Kidman’s role is yet to be revealed.

Director Michael Grandage is planning to begin pre-production in August and the film will start shooting in October.

The project was first announced in 2012 as Max Perkins: Editor Of Genius and Shame star Fassbender was picked for the role.

But now it seems the Irish actor’s busy work schedule means that Law will fill the role instead.

Win-win, we think!
