Zac Efron is going to film a new movie called “Are We Officially Dating?”, which could also be the title of a documentary about my dating life. (Pro tip: if you have to ask, the answer is usually “no.”)

That got me thinking about other dispatches from my romantic life that could be titles for movies.  Keep reading »

"Overjoyed"

The Frisky staff laughs at me like a bunch of hyenas whenever I bring up how much I love Matchbox Twenty, because sometimes The Frisky staff are a bunch of jerks like that. But I hardly care today because this week, the band released a new music video for the forthcoming album North and the song “Overjoyed,” is just the sweetest. I’ve been listening to it on repeat all morning. Take that, jerks! (J/K I love you guys.) [PopCrush]

  • Harrod’s, the famous department store in London, has finally debuted their gender-neutral toy store in which toys are grouped by theme, rather than “boys” and “girls.” The toy store has sections for stuffed animals, books, candy, and other toys but doesn’t stick to an exclusively pink or blue color palette. Very cool!  [The Mary Sue]

Bringing Dead People “Back To Life” Via Hologram Is Kinda Wrong

When the late Tupac Shakur “appeared” via hologram at the Coachella festival, everyone ooh-ed and ahh-ed. It wasn’t the first time a dead celeb had resurfaced in hologram form (Celine Dion sang a duet with a hologram of Elvis Presley on “American Idol” in 2010) and it won’t be the last time, either (Simon Cowell wants holograms of Amy Winehouse and Michael Jackson to appear on “X Factor”).

In fact, during this week’s Republican National Convention, a hologram of Ronald Reagan was rumored to make an appearance outside the convention center— but was then pooh-poohed because organizers supposedly didn’t want holographic Reagan upstaging Mitt Romney.

It’s just as well, in my opinion: bringing dead people “back to life” via hologram is kinda wrong. Keep reading »
