Watch A Bunch Of Celebrities Take The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve likely noticed everyone and their mom is posting videos of themselves to social media, in which they dump buckets of ice water on their heads. The point is to attract attention to Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), more commonly known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” by challenging friends and loved ones to take the challenge or donate $100 to ALS research. Sometimes I find myself questioning how helpful these stunts actually are, but this one has really taken off, raising over $11 million as of this weekend. Not to mention, I just spent 10 minutes reading the ALS Wikipedia page. Anyway, lots and lots and lots of celebs have gotten in on the action, including Lena Dunhama, above. See more after the jump!

Animal Can't Front On That

Animal, Beeker and the Swedish Chef lace up their shell toes as Ad Rock, Mike D and the late MCA in this randomly perfect Muppets tribute to the Beastie Boys. (Side note: Up until this very moment, I thought the last line was an awesome cunnilingus reference, i.e.: “I got news for your cooch, I’ll be suckin’ like a leech.” It’s crews not cooch?! Bummer.)

Andrew Keegan From "10 Things I Hate About You" Started His Own New Age Religion

Remember Andrew Keegan from “10 Things I Hate About You”? So cute, right? Well, now he’s cute and the leader of his own spiritual religious movement called Full Circle. According to a story in Vice, Keegan operates Full Circle out of a building in Venice Beach, CA, drawing in followers who want to get involved with the movement’s “advanced spiritualism,” according to one member of Full Circle’s “inner circle” (a circle within a circle?). The group considers themselves “artivists” using music, visual art, dance, etc. to promote their beliefs. Their beliefs being …?

“Synchronicity. Time. That’s what it’s all about,” Keegan told Vice. “Whatever, the past, some other time. It’s a circle; in the center is now. That’s what it’s about.” Yeah, I’m confused too. Keep reading »

…To Boldly Go Where No Mini-Van Has Gone Before!

Hey guys, what do you think of my sweet new ride? Just kidding, I wish I could afford this “Star Trek”-themed “boogie van” (really, that’s a term?) for sale on eBay for $8,500. I’m moving to Los Angeles in a few months and I need a set of wheels, and this 1978 GMC van has all the right vibes I’m looking for. I can picture it now: cruising down the 405, rocking a Baja hoodie, beaming up hotties for intergalactic sexual adventures in the red velvet-covered back seat. Hmm, the auction ended today and it looks like no one bid. Maybe the owner is open to negotiations… [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
