Kim Kardashian & Kris Jenner Are Kross With One Another

  • Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian are in a FIIIIIIGHHHHHTTTTTT. Kim skipped out on her mom’s Christmas party and then sent her a nasty email about how her mom has “exhausted” the “omish” (aka Amish) look and it’s “OVER” — which Kris posted on social media. Oh, it’s on now. [Jezebel]

Kreezus Is The Kanye West Christmas Album I Didn’t Know I Wanted

I actually love Christmas music — I agree it’s weird, but it’s my thing — but after three weeks, even I am tiring of “Silent Night” and “Jingle Bell Rock.”And just in time for the holiday, we’ve got some new Christmas tunes to listen to … from Kanye West? Well, sort of. Sketch group Local Business Comedy re-recorded Kanye’s entire Yeezus album, but with holiday-themed lyrics, and put the whole thing up on Soundcloud. The results are ridiculous, bizarrely wonderful and the perfect thing to put on the stereo if your family is just standing around awkwardly making chit chat while the Christmas ham bakes. “We love Kanye and thought it’d be funny if he woke up one day and was like, ‘I am Santa Claus,’” Stephen of LBC told Refinery 29. “Then weeks and weeks of writing and recording and mixing later, we had this album and it’s still cracking us up. We’re just glad other people like it.” [Soundcloud via Refinery 29]

In Honor Of Eddie Vedder’s 50th Birthday, Here Are 57 GIFs Of Pearl Jam’s Frontman (Because I Couldn’t Narrow Them Down!)

In Honor Of Eddie Vedder's 49th Birthday, Here Are 57 GIFs Of Pearl Jam's Frontman (Because I Couldn't Narrow Them Down!)

There are few things in life that make my chest seize and my stomach flutter with that inexplicable giddy feeling as much as Pearl Jam. My favorite band since I was 12 years old, I’ve been to a dozen Pearl Jam shows, every single one of them a profound spiritual experience and the best day of my life. The band has been around for over 20+ years, fronted by the enigmatic Eddie Vedder, who turns 50 today. Oh, I’ll find a whole bunch of amazing GIFs of him. Maybe I can even find 50! I thought. And then an hour later, I had 91 GIFs sitting on my desktop. Nine more and I’d have enough for his 100th birthday post. Oops. I managed to whittle them down to 57, but goddammit, I could not bring myself to discard another seven. SUE ME. So here you go. Fifty-seven Ed GIFs in honor of his 50th birthday. Keep reading »

The “Entourage” Movie Trailer Is Here — But Does Anyone Care?

The "Entourage" Movie Trailer Is Here -- But Does Anyone Care?
Oh, It's Those Guys Again. Hey.

If you work for The Frisky, apparently not. When I asked in our group chat if anyone wanted to post the just released trailer for the show’s big screen spinoff, there were crickets. I was just starting to type a grudging “oh okay, finnnnne, I’ll take it,” when Claire piped up and wrote, “Sure. I mean, I don’t really have any feelings about it. But I can take it.” Hmm. I decided that out of all of us who give no fucks about the “Entourage” movie, I maybe cared the most, in a “sure, okay, I’ll watch this on an airplane but only because it’s free and I’m flying to Australia and I have too many hours to kill to say no to watching a free movie and besides, maybe it’ll knock me into a deep sleep” sort of way. So here I am, posting the trailer for the new “Entourage” movie, which I won’t be seeing in theaters June 5, 2015.

Was Amy Adams Booted From “The Today Show” For Refusing To Discuss The Sony Hack?

  • Amy Adams’ appearance on “The Today Show” — to promote her movie “Big Eyes” — was canceled at the last minute, reportedly because she said she did not want to talk about the Sony hack. The hack revealed, amongst other things, that Adams and her “American Hustle” co-star Jennifer Lawrence were paid significantly less than their male costars in the film. [Us Weekly]
  • The latest woman to allege that Bill Cosby raped her is Katherine McKee, a former showgirl and girlfriend of Sammy Davis Jr., who said the comedian assaulted her in the 1970s. [Death and Taxes]
  • Today in Asinine Celebrity Quotes, Sofia Vergara says she would apply to cement to her eyes if it would stop wrinkles. [People] Keep reading »

These Vintage “Ideal Love Mate” Trading Cards From 1941 Are Delightfully Sexist

There’s a guy at the Brooklyn Flea Market who sells an impressive and ever-growing collection of vintage/retro kids toys and collectibles, including action figures, matchbox cars, wind-up toys, Garbage Pail Kids, the random remains of long forgotten rock collections and the like. It’s fun to sift through everything he’s got, either to get nostalgic about the toys of your own youth or to marvel at what older generations amused themselves with.

For example! The pack of “Your Ideal Love Mate” trading cards I snagged for $20. Produced in 1941, I’m not entirely sure if they were dispensed one at a time out of some “fortune telling” vending machine or if people purchased them in sets, but regardless, each card (there are 30) shows a photograph of a woman, usually glamorous but occasionally homely, alongside a personality description that makes her best suited for the card’s owner. (I presume these were made for men — or, you know, secret lesbians. Also, there was indeed dude versions of these trading cards for women to collect.) The personality descriptions for these “ideal love mates” are hilaaaariously archaic, noting such attributes as “knows when to be restful when you are tired,” “will devote her life to reforming you,” and “she’s a pal and a sport whether she can shop at Worth’s or Woolworth’s.” My plan is to frame a few of my favorites and put them by the toilet for guests to giggle at while they poop. But first, I have scanned a few for you to see! Which “Ideal Love Mate” would you be?
