R&B music will always be my favorite, because it covers the topic of love, of all kinds, in the best and most excruciating detail. From the first blush of infatuation, to pure lust, to the agony of heartbreak, it’s all there, and it’s all beautiful. Lucky for us, we live in an age where R&B [...]
Nature, you sexy beast. This timelapse video of various flowers blooming — including my beloved PEONY, which is in season right now, YIPPPPPEEEEE — is downright sensual and I NEVER use that word. It’s actually from 2009 and is promotion for a cool-seeming app called Bloomclock which shows the passage of time via the blooming of various [...]
If you’ve seen any of John Waters’ movies, you know to expect a certain breed of weird misfit comedy that is wonderful and dark and hilarious; Cry-Baby (1990) is one of those movies. It’s not as good as Hairspray, and it might not be as dark as any of Waters’ work with Divine, but Cry-Baby is a... Continue reading ?
An as-yet unnamed Boyton Beach, Florida, police officer has been placed on administrative duty after he was caught on camera kicking the legs out from under a handcuffed 13-year-old for “no reason,” and now the child’s parents are planning to file a formal complaint. Kevens Jean Baptiste, 13, was riding the bus to school last [...]
Hands down, the best thing about working at The Frisky is our amazing readers. We so heart all of your witty, thoughtful, and informative comments — heck, we even appreciate the mean ones. Sometimes, we can’t help but wonder about the faces behind the avatars. So we decided to bring back our regular column where [...]
Though I am no great Peanuts fan, I find this single in my collection somewhat adorable because it would have been something my dad purchased as an eleven-year-old. It’s bubblegum in the same way The Monkees were around the same time period, with the band capitalizing on the Beatles’ success by picking a British-themed name. The... Continue reading ?
Nat Johnson’s new song, “Dog,” is a sweet ode to how lovely it is to have a dog, inspired by all the happy dogwalkers she saw in the park near her home. The just-released music video is a beautiful animation that perfectly illustrates the song’s central theme: dogs can teach us so much. My favorite [...]
There’s a disturbing buzz building in Nashville right now. It’s reminiscent of the sound of the T-Rex approaching in “Jurassic Park.” At first, it’s just a faint vibration, then a loud, sickening THUMP, then a deafening roar, and suddenly you’re stuck between its jaws, being eaten alive, and there’s nothing you can do about it. [...]
It seems like lots of people lately wax poetic about the good old days before we were all staring at computer screens. Take, for example, the popularity of the “Look Up” spoken word video. I hear these complaints from mostly people my age, maybe a bit older, so we’re not that far apart in our [...]
Fashion blogger GabiFresh deals with her fair share of haters. As a plus-size woman in the fashion world, getting passed over for opportunities, being judged for her size, and dealing with vicious comments about her body are par for the course. After hearing Beyonce’s song, “Flawless,” and seeing the video, Gabi was inspired to use Bey’s [...]
As children of the 80s started producing teen comedies, the 00s brought forth a too self-assured brand of teen comedy that tried to rehash those John Hughes movies of their youth, but got caught up in trying to make every possible pop...Show More Summary
Yesterday, I was in need of some laughs to get through the Monday blues, so I watched this clip of Kevin Spacey on “The Tonight Show,” doing a barbershop rendition of Jason Derulo’s “Talk Dirty.” Then I watched it again, and again, and pretty much couldn’t stop. Something about his dead-eyed expression paired with his commitment [...]
So, Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman and James McAvoy are in a movie together? Some kind of “X-Men” thing? I don’t know, I don’t really care. The important thing is, the hunky trio hit up the “The Graham Norton Show” together and performed the dance moves from “Blurred Lines.” Robin Thicke had better watch his slimy [...]
Sometimes we go on YouTube spirals of old movie soundtracks or club hits. Sometimes you just really want to relive those Pure Moods commercials. I stumbled upon a Backstreet Boys video that I had never seen before, which honestly is SHOCKING because I was a Backstreet Boys fan, so apparently I had failed at being... Continue reading ?
Ilana Glazer’s YouTube web series “Chronic Gamer Girl” is my new favorite thing (that’s been around for awhile but I managed to miss it until now, okay?). In this episode, the “Broad City” star goes for a stroll in a New York City park and asks a random mix of strangers about when they first [...]
What happens when you take “Cups,” the song popularized by Anna Kendrick in “Pitch Perfect” (technically called “When I’m Gone”), and give it a dose of Nicki Minaj? Pure happiness, that’s what. [YouTube]
When Nate and Erica Eaton found out they were expecting a second child, they were shocked. They figured their friends and family would be surprised too, so they put together a video that switched up the lyrics to Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” to share the good news in a this [...]
The oh-so-beloved 1980s movie “Heathers” is now a musical. I’ll wait for a moment while you squeal with glee (at least, that’s how I’d react if I were you). Rumors that “Heathers” would be headed to the stage, along with several incarnations of the production, have made the rounds these past few years. The show is [...]
I’m such a sucker for any article or video that’s called, “What (Fill In The Blank) Is Like Around The World!” You can fill in that blank with pretty much anything and I will click and read and enjoy and share that shit on Facebook. Case in point: this video tour of common breakfast foods [...]
The internet is bursting with parodies of Dove’s Real Beauty ads, and if you ask me, there can never be too many. This one actually came out a year ago, but I just stumbled upon it, and it’s too good not to share. The idea behind it is simple: what if the forensic artist in [...]
