12 Alt-R&B Artists You Definitely Need To Know About

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 [...]

This Timelapse Video Of Flowers Blooming Is Amazing

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 [...]

Movies I’m Weirdly Obsessed With: Cry-Baby

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 ?

Record Machine: “Snoopy vs. The Red Baron” by The Royal Guardsmen

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 ?

Oh, But The Sweet, Perfect, Simple Wisdom Of A Dog!

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 [...]

Build Your Bunkers Now: This Is Going To Be The Biggest Country Hit Of The Summer

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. [...]

The Soapbox: Hating On Social Media Is Trendy, But It’s Also Wrong

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 [...]

Bow Down, Bitches: Plus-Size Fashion Bloggers Create Their Own “Flawless” Video

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 [...]

Movies I’m Weirdly Obsessed With: Get Over It

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

Kevin Spacey Harmonizing To “Talk Dirty” Is One Of The Better Things To Hit The Interwebs This Week

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 [...]

Michael Fassbender Dances To “Blurred Lines,” Gives Robin Thicke A Run For His Money

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 [...]

Revisiting BSB’s “I’ll Never Break Your Heart”

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 (AKA Chronic Gamer Girl) Talks Virginity Loss With Strangers In A Park

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]

Watch This Couple’s Taylor Swift-Inspired Baby Announcement

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 [...]

“Heathers” Is Now An Off-Broadway Musical

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 [...]

Which Country’s Drunk Munchies Look Best To You?

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 [...]

Watch This: A Dove Parody Ad That Asks Men To See The “Real Beauty” Of Their Ballsacks

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 [...]
