The End Zone: 7 Times Rob Gronkowski Has Been His Most Rob Gronkowski

The Patriots improbably excellent season just keeps getting better and better. After a rocky start, Tom Brady has more than proven that he hasn’t gotten any less effective with age. But it’s tight end Rob Gronkowski, now back at full strength after knee surgery earlier in the year, who has been having a monster year, both on field and off. Of course, the best part of Rob Gronkowski isn’t really his ability to take it to the end zone – it’s his beer-drinking, lady-loving, party-crashing alter ego on top of it all. Some of Gronk’s finest moments of Gronkness? Keep reading »

Coming Soon: A Mood Ring That Actually Works!

Mood Ring

For those of us who made it past middle school without ceasing to be mystified by the magical powers of mood rings (ahem, me), good news: a Finnish startup is bringing us a Moodmetric ring fitted with a tiny biometric sensor. Soon we can buy a mood ring that is backed by science! That’s surely an upgrade from the mood ring you bought at a gas station in eighth grade that is permanently stuck on some enigmatic blueish-purple hue that apparently means “passionate.” This fancy new ring, which will be the world’s smallest wearable with a bio-sensor, will gauge the wearer’s “emotional voltage” (whatever that means) and will connect to a smartphone app via Bluetooth. The startup’s COO told International Business Times UK, that the ring “measures the small changes in your skin which come from the autonomousnervous system reactions which can tell you about your emotional state.” Keep reading »

Make It Work: Handle The Interview, Don’t Let It Handle You

Make It Work: Handle The Interview, Don't Let It Handle You

Like online dating and stopping to talk to people you haven’t seen since college at Urban Outfitters while shopping for underwear, job interviews are a necessary evil. If you have a job, you got that job because you put on your fancy “interview pants,” took a long lunch and went to an office somewhere to sit across a table from a stranger to talk about your resume for 45 minutes. Some interviews are worse than others. I’ve been in interviews where I sat in a conference room for three hours, while a parade of people plopped in front of me and asked me the same questions. I’ve been to 15 minute interviews where it was clear from the start that I wasn’t going to get the job. I’ve made mistakes and killed it in the same 45 minute span. I’ve learned a lot, and I’m here to help. Here are some things that you should NOT do on a job interview. Keep reading »

Be My Boyfriend: Ben Schwartz, Who Stood Up To A Catcaller, Was Stabbed Nine Times, And Is Calling For An End To Street Harassment

Dear Ben Schwartz,

I am so, so sorry for the injuries you incurred to your face, neck, and back after a catcaller stabbed you when you approached him to ask him to stop harassing your girlfriend. That is monstrous. It just goes to show that catcalling really isn’t “just a compliment” or a man “just being friendly”: It’s a form of aggression that is expressed verbally and physically both toward women who catcallers feel entitled to and men who get in the way of that entitlement.

47 Absolutely Necessary GIFs From “7/11,” Beyonce’s Best Video Ever

Beyonce 711 Video Gifs

No but really, to quote Kanye West, Beyonce really has just made one of the greatest videos of all time, and it was all seemingly filmed on an iPhone. Or it just looks that way and it was really filmed on super expensive equipment with a gang of cameramen. But I doubt it. Regardless! Bey’s video for “7/11″ is the “Where’s Waldo?” of music videos, in that you can watch it five times in a row — which, yes, I did — and still not catch every moment of glorious silliness. Beyonce running in place doing the “gotta pee” dance! Jay tumbling down the hotel hallway! Baby Blue playing on the bed while mom acts like a weirdo! Motherfuckin’ FOOOOOOOT PHONNNNNNNNNNNNNNE! Want to make sure you didn’t miss a moment? I found you some GIFs. Forty-seven to be exact… Keep reading »

Frisky Rant: No, The Wrap, Bill Cosby Is Not Being “Raped” By His Accusers’ Allegations

Frisky Rant: No, The Wrap, Bill Cosby Is Not Being Raped By His Accusers' Allegations

This Saturday, entertainment blog The Wrap posted a stunningly tone-deaf guest op-ed entitled “The Rape of Bill Cosby.” The tongue-in-cheek opening line read “Bill Cosby raped me.” And that was the best part of the entire debacle. The remainder of the piece, which was meant to be an excoriation of liberal media (on a liberal media site no less – gotta love life’s rich pageant), has instead become Exhibit A in the case of The Wrap engendering rape culture, and it is a steaming pile of gross, triggering garbage.
