  •  Anthony Kulkamp Dias, 33, discovered he had a brain tumor 15 days after his son was born.

    He realized something was wrong when he began stammering and forgetting things. He couldn’t remember the simplest of details, including the make of his car, he said.

    Last week, he underwent surgery to remove the tumor. Doctors kept him conscious during the surgery so they could monitor the areas of the brain relating to speech and motor coordination. Keeping brain surgery patients awake allows physicians to speak to them during the operation and chart their responses.

    Instead of reading or telling stories during the procedure, Dias did what he does best. A 20-year guitar player, Dias serenaded his doctors while holding a guitar on his stomach.

    In addition to his emotional rendition of “Yesterday” by The Beatles, he also played a song called “Emanuel,” which he wrote for his son.

  • Talk about an explosive proposal!

    Actress Cymber Browder thought she was just helping out her boyfriend’s brother by appearing in his action film; little did she know her boyfriend, Seth McMurry, had much more in store for her.

    In the clip, “An Explosive Engagement,” the pair run across a rooftop, shooting machine guns as a helicopter shoots down at them.

    Then, just after Seth dramatically saves Cymber from a helicopter crash, she remains in character as she gets up and looks around her, to find Scott down on one knee and asking, “Will you marry me?”

    Cymber immediately breaks character and burst into tears of joy. Of course she said yes!

    While they’re embracing on the rooftop, you can hear the cameraman say, “We got it!”

    If you are going to break character in a film, that’s the way to do it.

  • Take a quick scroll through your social media account. Rarely will you see a mommy blogger curating the reality of the daily whining, fighting, begging and screaming that define the oh-so-magical experience of child-rearing.

    But one mom’s videos show us that it’s OK to admit that being a mom is a messy, messy job!

    Mother of two and former senior editor for Nickelodeon’s parenting website, Deva Dalporto used to dole out advice about how to delicately handle snot and sharing.

    She now creates some really funny videos that parody the craziness that comes with being a mom.

    “Bohemian Momsody” hysterically addresses the disarray, the unbrushed hair, and the constant request for juice that fill the days of a mom’s life.

    And the former editor points out how being a mother strips your entire vocabulary down to one word — no.

    Despite the trials of having a person semi-permanently attached to you and having to learning to pee with ninjalike stealth, Dalporto and her mom gang point out that at the end
