Mama, ooooooooh....

You may think you know "Bohemian Rhapsody," and you know exactly where every "Galileo" and "Figaro" and "Magnifico" lives.

And, you might.

But you don't know this song like you're about to.


Check it out here:


Wow!!! te reo Māori rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody www.youtube.com

This Māori group sings their own version completely a cappella. Listen to it-the tight harmonies, the familiar counterpoints, and watch how into it they are.

It's truly an amazing experience.

Who are the Māori?

They are the indigenous people of New Zealand. This particular group is called Hātea Kapa Haka and they're...just amazing.

Here's another performance of theirs from 7 years ago:

According to Newshub, Hātea Kapa Haka collaborated with musical artist William Waiirua to create this "Bohemian Rhapsody" entirely in the Te Reo language and as a standing tribute to Queen and to the recently released film Bohemian Rhapsody.

The group also made a video with Waiirua showing their collaboration:



It's SO COOL, right?



The group, who hails from Whangarei, performed this set live at New Zealand's national kapa haka festival, Te Matatini, in Wellington in late February.

The festival reportedly brings 46 kapa haka groups together to compete.


Here's more.




Perennially popular Bohemian Rhapsody saw a resurgence in sales and downloads with the release of the film of the same name. The Oscar winning film is now available here in multiple formats.

And this performance of Queen's most famous piece of music was a highlight for people this year.






Over 60,000 people reportedly attended the festival this year.

Ngā Tūmanako from West Auckland was the 2019 winner of Te Matatini.

We love your work, Hātea Kapa Haka!

We can't wait to see what you do next!

I have a few wealthy friends and I've seen a thing or two that has made my eyes pop out of my head. Let's just say that the priorities of a wealthy person and a dude who has never broken six figures are entirely different. But that doesn't compare to working for the fabulously rich. A friend of mine was a nanny for a super rich family for several years and described the lavish trips she took with them (and how picky and out of touch they were, too).

People told us their own stories after Redditor NeighborhoodTrolley asked the online community,

"People who cater to the super rich: What things have you seen?"

Oh the matters of the heart are just never going to be easy. Love seems to be a never ending mess. I've dated a lot and can attest that the percentage of bad to good is 70/30. And that may be generous math.

I've heard about people fighting on dates, setting fire to the restaurant, discovering hidden identities and dramas I thought only ever occurred on daytime television.

I use to believe the biggest fear about dating was that the other person may turn out to be a serial killer, but they at least tend to show you a respectable time before they strike.

Oof. Let's see who has been left scarred by the hunt.

Redditor u/givemeyourfreefood wanted everyone to share the stories that almost made them re-think searching for love, by asking:

What's the worst date you ever had?
