Prison Reform at Rikers Island Is a Total Sham So Far

Over the past several months, as the culture of brutality at Rikers Island has become harder and harder to ignore, New York's corrections department has gestured toward reform. Incompetent officials resigning, thuggish guards punished when in the past they'd be given high fives and told to keep their mouths shut. Show More Summary

Politico's Dylan Byers Works for Fox News PR

Dylan Byers, the dumbest media reporter alive, has typed up some thoughts at The Politico about, as his headline puts it, "Why the Bill O'Reilly charges aren't sticking." Aren't they? Or at least, isn't their "sticking" or not "sticking" in some way related to the work of a media desk such as The Politico's? Read more...

Dr. Nancy Snyderman Slurred and Stumbled Through a Peanut Allergy Report

On last night's NBC Nightly News, the show's Chief Medical Editor Nancy Snyderman, M.D., seemed a little...unsteady as she reported on a patch that may help those suffering from peanut allergies. I can't even pay attention to what she's saying because I'm fixated on how she's saying it. See above. Read more...

Practicing Islam in Short Shorts

The scenario I'm about to describe has happened to me more times than I can count, in more cities than I can remember, mostly in Western cities here in the U.S. and Europe. Read more...

No Playlist

Should you lift weights to heavy metal? Should you cardio dance to hip hop tracks? Should you run the streets listening to podcasts? NO. Read more...

You Could Rob All These Rich People's Houses During the Oscars

At the Oscars last night, several celebrities admirably used their time on stage to speak about issues like equality, discrimination, and poverty. This would have been a good time to rob their houses. Read more...

The Hills Are Alive With the Sound of Lady Gaga Killinnnn' It

At this point in Lady Gaga's career, she has begun transitioning from spicy pop tart in a meat suit to subdued Barbara Streisand ballad-singer, and when she was called in to a perform a medley of Sound of Music staples in the stead of Julie Andrews, she did not disappoint. In fact, she sounded amazing. A real stunner. Read more...

Here Is the Face of Civil Rights

Many viewers were moved to tears while watching John Legend and Common's show-stopping performance of ''Glory'' at the Academy Awards, including David Oyelowo— who portrayed Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the film Selma—and also The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement star Chris Pine.

John Travolta Interacts Naturally With Woman's Face

John Travolta and Idina Menzel presented Best Orignal Song tonight with a bit that referenced Travolta's pronunciation screw up at last year's Academy Awards, which you certainly have never forgotten nor wished to forget. The whole thing was totally boring and predictable but it did include a very normal interaction between Travolta, a man, and Menzel, a woman. Read more...

The Performance of "Glory" is Tonight's Highlight So Play It On Repeat

John Legend and Common came together tonight for a stirring performance of "Glory," the song they wrote for civil rights film Selma. Because the Oscars have thus far been lackluster, uncomfortable, and flat (as they tend to be), watching the two perform "Glory" on an Edmund Pettus Bridge was tonight's standout and the night ain't even over.

Thousands of Prisoners at Texas Detention Center to be Relocated

As many as 2,800 prisoners being held at a federal detention facility in Raymondville, Texas will need to be moved to a new facility after demonstrations that began there on Friday, Reuters reports. Officials said that the prison had been rendered "uninhabitable." Read more...

Terrence Howard Is Fucked Up

While doing that thing where people come out and talk about nominees for Best Picture (in this case: Whiplash, The Imitation Game, and Selma), Terrence Howard almost started crying. When he did this, I thought he was leading into an introduction of the notoriously snubbed Civil Rights drama Selma. Show More Summary

Patricia Arquette Demands Women Get PAID and Meryl Streep Loves It

Patricia Arquette's acceptance speech is the one to beat, and no one believes this more than her fellow nominee Meryl Streep. Accepting the trophy for her supporting role in Boyhood, Arquette made things political in the most plainspoken way possible: Read more...

Poland Finally Wins a War

After the very beautiful and very boring Polish movie Ida won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, director Pawel Pawlikowski spoke for about 30 seconds before the orchestra began playing him off, just as he was thanking his late wife. Show More Summary

Dakota Johnson's Mom Is So Embarrassing MOM I HATE U

Dakota Johnson brought her mom Melanie Griffith to the Oscars tonight, and Jaysusss was she embarrassing. It turns out that Mel hasn't seen Fifty Shades of Grey, and she doesn't really plan on seeing Fifty Shades of Grey, because she doesn't have to see "that" to know Dakota is a great actress. Moommm.

Why Worry About Land Sharks When Now There Are Land Octopuses?

This video of an octopus leaping out of water to snatch up a delicious crab and wrestling with it for a bit on dry land before dragging it to its death back in some dark, submarine nook comes from Western Australia, where the elements blend together and chaos reigns. Read more...
