Julia Roberts is America’s Sweetheart. But did you also know that she’s an obstacle course? Billy Eichner, host of “Billy on the Street,” somehow convinced “Saturday Night Live” alum Rachel Dratch to take on the course, which involved creative recreations of all of Julia’s most-loved movies. There’s a burrito for “The Mexican,” a sewer pipe [...]
Adorable Rookie mag EIC Tavi Gevinson has taken on a new role — that of actress extraordinaire. Here, she lends her voice to the main character, a tentative medical student who begins dissecting a cadaver only to have it come alive. Gevinson narrates the whole film, and shares credits with Kathy Bates and Christopher Lloyd. Not [...]
Kirk and Katrina Thomas have been married for more than 30 years, but for much of that time, Kirk has harbored a secret passion for dressing up in women’s clothing. And on this very special episode of the web series Transfashionable, host Johnny Makeup (hiiiiii Johnnnnnny!) and Aussie drag queen extraordinaire Courtney Act explore both [...]
Like many years that begin a decade, 1990 straddles what we typically associate with ’80s and ’90s music. We’ve still got big hair and basic performance videos, but there are hints at what is to come. Put on your black turtleneck, fluff that hair, and let’s get to it. Here’s Where the Story Ends — The Sundays Reading, Writing and...
When people need a break from partisan politics, economic woes, traffic, overflowing email boxes, and the other challenges of modern life, many turn to the usual methods of escape — football playoffs, the 2-for-1 happy hour martini special, or catching up on Say Yes To The Dress. But for many of us these days, the ultimate escape is Downton Abbey, the...
Those of you who read my posts often know that I’m kind of a comedy nerd. Even though I often find Apatow movies somewhat sexist, I still watch them to see some of my favorite comedic actors doing their thing. And also, I’ve had a thing for Paul Rudd since Clueless, as my pinterest boards can attest. I had also...
Apparently, the “Kate Effect” that has consumers scrambling to purchase clothes spotted on Kate Middleton isn’t all it’s cracked up to be: the Duchess’s penchant for wearing past-season items means most of them have already sold out by the time she’s photographed in them. Designer Roland Mouret even went so far as to say his [...]
Yes, I met Noel Gallagher. It was surprisingly easy, not entirely premeditated, and out of all the questions I have ever wanted to ask him, what happened? I asked a silly one that’s been stuck in my brain since 2007. After locating my friend’s house where I was staying and going to lunch with said friend, I made my way...
Paging Winona: There’s a dreadlocked lothario almost-killer roaming your fair city of Portland. It seems that this dreadlocked dude attempted to strangle his girlfriend to death using one of his dreadlocks. (Please insert terrible, “talk about organic” joke here.) I guess sometimes you work with what you have — and in the case of 32-year-old [...]
Another James Franco “art” project! Here he is with a Justin Bieber wig and cap spoofing the song “Boyfriend” with his “Spring Breakers” costar Ashley Benson … and some other comeley lass. Rrrow! It gets a little NSFW towards the end. I don’t remember quite so much butt in the real “Boyfriend” video. What other [...]
This project has reminded me that there are never really “bad” years in music, only years where one should really pay more attention and not let cool-kid-opinion color what you like. 1989, at a glance, might not seem like all that special of a year, but I still had to think about how I would narrow down my picks to...
Comedian Billy Eichner is super funny. In this clip from his new show “Billy On The Street,” Billy interviews the great Will Ferrell … about Drew Barrymore. After all, aren’t we always worried about what D-Barrs is up to, really? [YouTube]
I almost feel bad for ex-gay porn star Joseph Sciambra. After all, it’s pretty clear he’s mega-traumatized — both physically and emotionally — by his time in the sex industry. Sciambra claims his life in porno led to him having major anal problems, which resulted in getting his “sphincter almost stitched shut.” Ouch. But! (Okay, [...]
Let’s talk for a minute about the “friendzone.” Don’t worry, fellas, this isn’t a lecture. It’s an advice column, because there is something you deserve to know: There is a very simple, nigh-foolproof way to avoid ending up in the situation that that exceptionally loaded word describes. And I will tell you what it is. [...]
This video comes with a trigger warning. As some of you may have heard, there’s been a lot of controversy over the alleged rape of an unnamed 16-year-old high school girl in the football-crazed town of Steubenville, Ohio. At issue is a prevailing culture of protection around the football players who are said to have perpetrated [...]
People just love to get engaged at Christmastime. I imagine this is a result of a combination of factors, from feeling more family-oriented than usual (although the holidays have the opposite effect on many of us) to the celebratory atmosphere at large and increased presence of shiny objects generally. I spent Christmas Eve “liking” a [...]
Hello from out here in Man Card America, where proving your masculinity to the dude-friends who are vigilantly looking to revoke your “Man Card” if you get caught engaging in unmanly activities like being scared, doing what your girlfriend wants to do sometimes, enjoying a song by a woman, or drinking the wrong kind of [...]
So, maybe you haven’t heard, but there’s this little rumor going around that the world is going to end tomorrow. Obviously, it’s not going to (even NASA says so!), but, you know, just in case it does, we’ve compiled a guide to the actions and whereabouts of each zodiac sign in an apocalyptic event. Which sign [...]
When I first read what folks are calling Amelia Earhart’s “prenup,” I was sure it was too good to be true: here is, in 1931 or thereabouts, a woman telling her fiancé in no uncertain terms that she doesn’t necessarily intend to be faithful to him, that her career comes first and that she intends [...]
Lil Bub and Andrew WK: Two great tastes that go great together. Here, Bub and WK team up to encourage people to support their local animal shelters this winter. Because “as precious as Lil Bub is, she takes a lot of care, a lot of resource and a lot of energy.” Lil Bub is like, [...]
