New York DJ Scott Melker wanted to make a remix of Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” that would stand out, so he decided to mash the softspoken Australian artist with the late Brooklyn rapper Notorious B.I.G. “Everyone has remixed Gotye.

Let Nicole’s mistake be a lesson — you need a friggin’ bag with a friggin’ zipper closure.

Lena Dunham on the debt "Girls" owes to "Sex And The City." Read More »
“People are saying this is ‘Sex and the City’ for the next generation,” said Conan O’Brien, speaking to Lena Dunham, on last night’s episode of “Conan.” TheLos Angeles Times called Dunham’s show “Girls” “the uncomfortably true voice of millennial women.” And TheNew Yorker attacked “Girls” for its lack of inclusivity: “‘Girls’ also paints a revealing picture because of what, or whom, it leaves out. The show’s young women are protected, in part, by privilege,” notes writer Margaret Talbot.

Hey, you know what? Kickstarter is super cool and great for stuff like supporting grassroots projects, films and businesses. You know what it’s not for? THROWING YOURSELF A GODDAMN BIRTHDAY PARTY. But yet! That’s exactly what some crapster named Jessi Arrington is manipulating Kickstarter for. She wants to throw “the world’s largest rainbow parade” (these are the goals our helicopter parents dreamed we would shoot for, guys), which basically involves party goers dressing up in monochromatic clothing of different colors and uh, you know, lining up like a freaking rainbow.
