Considering it’s a post-apocalyptic show about a world overrun by zombies, it’s quite telling that the producers behind “The Walking Dead” say that season five is going to be “much darker.” The cast and crew debuted the upcoming season’s trailer at San Diego Comic-Con — as well as a premiere date of October 12 — saying that the first episode picks up right where season four left off, with the newly reunited group of survivors (minus Carol and Tyreese) facing a possible new enemy at Terminus. Are they cannibals, as has been implied? I guess we’ll have to watch to find out…
Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either. There will always be another party, another pub crawl, another picnic. The time you’ll spend indulging in the things you want to do, alone, are well worth it. Here’s a handy list of awesome things to do this weekend! Keep reading »
Spotted in Paris: No doubt the work of a diehard member of the BeyHive, someone armed with a can of spray paint graffitied the side of a building with this play on the French motto “liberté, egalité, fraternité” (“freedom, equality, brotherhood”). Parfait! [Cosmopolitan]

“I always dreamt of being a girl. … I was proud of my gender nonconforming career. But my biggest dream was to be comfortable in my own body. I have to be true to myself and the career is just going to have to fit around that. … Every day is like a new revelation. I’m more comfortable than ever. I feel at a 100 percent.”
In an interview with People, model Andreja Pejic, 22, whose androgynous look made waves in the fashion industry, officially announced that she — formerly known as Andrej — underwent sex reassignment surgery earlier this year and identifies as a trans woman. In 2011, Pejic became a breakout star of the fashion world, walking both the menswear and womenswear runways, including donning a wedding dress for legendary designer Jean Paul Gautier. Pejic had known since she was very young that she “always wanted to be a girl,” dressing up in skirts and playing with dolls. Social pressure forced her to conform to traditional male gender roles, but when she was 13, a Google search opened up a whole new world of understanding. “I went into the library and typed ‘sex change’ into Google and my life changed,” she told People. “The Internet gave me the sense that there were words to describe my feelings and medical terms.” Keep reading »

Oh, how much fun it would be to work on the creative for a laxative brand’s ad campaign! And fun was clearly what the crazy kids at McCann Healthcare Worldwide were having when they came up with this ad for Dulcolax’s latest ad campaign. Turds! In poop prison! Counting the days they’ve been trapped inside someone’s bowels thanks to constipation! At least until Dulcolax arrives to set them free. Seriously, this has to be the best/worst ad ever. The turds are huddled around AN ASSHOLE, you guys. Genius! (Check out a few more subtle Dulcolax ads after the jump.) [Ads of the World via Ad Week] Keep reading »
Yesterday, Zach Snyder, director of 2016′s hotly anticipated “Batman Vs. Superman,” revealed a brand new photo of Ben Affleck as The Dark Knight. Is it just me, or does Batfleck look a little rough, like he just woke up after a three-day bender in Vegas and discovered he depleted his bank accounts playing poker all night? Oh wait, that’s just Ben Affleck’s general vibe. [Hollywood Reporter]
If you’ve got it, stick a piece of dental floss up it and then flaunt it, as they say!
Up until this very moment, culottes made me frown. Oh okay, sure, fashion industry, just try to convince me that below-the-knee, super wide-leg short pants are a good look. YOU’RE WASTING YOUR BREATH. And they were, but lucky for them, Kate Hudson swooped in wearing a pair that I initially mistook for a midi skirt and loved so when I discovered that there are indeed to separate leg holes, I was like, “GAME, SET, MATCH, CULOTTES. YOU WIN.” In order to pull these off, you really have to do what Kate is doing, pair them with with a fitted top and, most important, sky high heels, otherwise you’ll look stumpy as hell.

Add Pharrell to the list of famous singing men who want to assure women of all colors, shapes, sizes and ages that NOT TO WORRY, we are beautiful, HE PROMISES. His new video for “Come Get It Bae” kicks off with an all caps message: “BEAUTY HAS NO EXPIRATION DATE.” Thanks, Pharrell! I was worried. The video features a bevy of racially diverse women having a blast dancing, one by one, while Pharrell films them with a handheld camera. It’s totally fun and silly and all of the women featured — with the exception of Miley Cyrus, who makes a cute, not-twerking cameo — are pretty, but in a normal-ish way, not a Miranda Kerr way. So I like it! Truly! But I remain irritated by dudes like Pharrell and John Legend doling out unsolicited stamps of approval on our physical attractiveness. (P.S. Bae is a term of endearment that means “before anyone else.”) [NYMag.com]
