We’ve all got our go-to thing that always makes us crack up. Just thinking about it makes you giggle a little bit. For Amelia, for example, it’s this weird poster of “The Breakfast Club” with Walt Jr. from “Breaking Bad”‘s face superimposed over all the main characters. For you, it might be kittens rolling off the bed, or the “I’m so excited” episode of “Saved By the Bell.” Whatever it is, we’d love it if you’d share with us your go-to funny thing in the comments. It’s Monday after all, so we could all use a laugh. And in the meantime, check out the rest of ours, after the jump. Keep reading »
We knew you for such a short time, but though our moments were fleeting, you made a big impression on us. You cuddled with Anderson Cooper. You befuddled “The Today Show” and you ambled into our hearts — Meow, we will never forget you. You lived large, and your spirit will continue to shine as a beacon for all of us.

In the case of physical pain, your body can go into a type of physical shock — like when car crash victims report that they were able to escape a burning car despite a major open leg wound because their bodies went into protective mode and blocked them from the pain of the wound.

Take a look at our gallery of Derby Day looks and let us know what you think in the comments.

Fledgling filmmaker Benh Zeitlen’s new film “Beasts of the Southern Wild” garnered tons of acclaim at the recent Sundance Film Festival and was an official selection at Cannes. Even so, that doesn’t necessarily guarantee that it’ll be a compelling, watchable film. But the first trailer, featuring breakout child star Quvenzhane Wallace, makes it look pretty damn good. The film follows Wallace as Hushpuppy on an odyssey to survive a Katrina-like storm, ward off mystical “auroch” creatures, and find his missing mother.
