The macabre Tumblr Jerry Seinfeld’s Skeleton uses a sandbox game called Garry’s Mod to recreate the greatest moments of “Seinfeld” – performed only by Jerry’s digital skeleton. The site’s creator, Bryce Maciel, goes through “Seinfeld” screenshots to make sure the skeletons are posed exactly like Jerry is onscreen. It’s unclear what makes this creepy site so enticing (besides the glory of reliving the Soup Nazi debacle), but for some reason, I’m terrified and still can’t stop staring. With almost 10,000 follows, other “Seinfeld” fans seem to agree. After the jump, a few of Jerry’s skeleton-style one-liners. Spooky.

The “Grey’s Anatomy” cast had a little fun on set dressing up as the cast of “Orange Is The New Black,” with Sara Ramirez working it as Alex Vause and Ellen Pompeo as Tricia. No, this is not their subtle way of announcing some kind of bizarre onscreen crossover (thankfully!), but it’s pretty adorable. [BuzzFeed]
Yaaassss! Laverne Cox has an MTV documentary premiering October 17, titled “Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word.” The documentary will feature profiles of seven transgender people ranging in age from 12 to 24. Cox will act as host of the documentary, discussing aspects of being transgender like coming out and how race and trans identities interact.
Is Laverne Cox unstoppable? I’m pretty sure she is. In the last two years, she’s played Sophia on “Orange Is The New Black,” was featured in V and Essence, and made the cover of TIME, was awarded for her advocacy by GLAAD and Out, appeared in a John Legend video, and she’s worked with the Sylvia Rivera Law Project.

“I think that the term [feminist] has been incredibly bastardized. I am a huge advocate of empowering women — the idea of women supporting each other and supporting themselves and making strong choices that make them happy. I think often feminism gets a very narrow definition. It’s not about making shit-tons of money and running a Fortune 500 company. It’s about doing what makes you feel good as a woman, and if that’s being a stay-at-home mom, you can be just as much of a feminist that way as you can as a fighter pilot. So in that way, yeah, of course.”
It’s a sign of the zeitgeist, I guess, when an otherwise frothy interview with an actress on one of the hottest shows on TV right now turns from face wash and lipstick to feminism? That’s what I choose to believe at least: “Girls” star Zosia Mamet spoke with Allure about makeup tips and fielded a question about whether she calls herself a feminist. Mamet, who writes a column for Glamour, has written a critique of “lean in” feminism before. Her answer was somewhat one-dimensional — I mean, it takes an enormous amount of privilege in the first place to choose to be a stay-at-home mom — but otherwise I solidly agree with Mamet. Women’s equality is about much more than a privileged, elite group of women being financially successful under capitalism. [Allure] [Image via AKM-GSI]
Singer Robin Thicke was just like thousands of tourists who were stranded in Cabo San Lucas as a result of the devastating effects of Hurricane Odile.
One thing that set Thicke apart from the other 30,000 panicked and stranded tourists, was that he attempted to use his celebrity and some cash to get out of Cabo faster than the less famous folks.
The “Blurred Lines’ singer was vacationing in Cabo with his son, a nanny, a woman who looked to be his publicist and another gentleman who seemed to be Robin’s pal.
According to a Celebuzz source, Robin was doing everything in his power to get out of Cabo. At the airport, a woman associated with Robin (who was way, way back in line of 750-1000 people) approached a group of tourists near the front of the line. Keep reading »
