As if we didn’t already have enough reasons to say RIP Society: French “YouTube comedian” (I know) Remi Baillard recently released a video called “Free Sex,” in which he’s filmed pretending to fuck unsuspecting women in public. Invariably, the women notice Baillard air-humping them and give him dirty looks. And this dumb shit actually has over five and a half million views.
Yes, that’s right. A sketch form of a rape joke — which I can only assume was inspired by “Austin Powers 3,” circa 2002? — got almost six million hits. I was one of those hits and not only did I not laugh, but I was transported back to 7th grade. You remember 7th grade? It’s a time when the 12-year-old boys were so tiresome and immature that merely walking in front of a group of them would make my eyes roll back into the base of my cerebellum. Keep reading »
I’m sure many fans of John Green’s book feel this way, but the movie adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars is something I’m both very excited and nervous about. The book is so wonderful, so heartwrenching, so moving, it’s worrisome to think that the film could fall short in conveying and extracting those emotions, as book-to-movie adaptations often do. But by the looks of this clip, which debuted during last night’s MTV Movie Awards, I don’t have much to worry about. I enjoy Shailene Woodley as an actress and look forward to seeing how she takes on the role of cancer-stricken Hazel Grace, but it’s Ansel Elgort who completely steals this scene as the enigmatic Augustus. Elgort completely nails Gus’s amused, flirtatious, confident, philosophical vibe, and in just a quick 60 seconds, we see exactly why Hazel — and the book’s readers — can’t turn away. June 6 can’t get here soon enough.
HOLY CRAP. Last night’s “Game of Thrones,” amiright? Finally, after all this time, SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER! And then! Can you believe they SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER?! So epic. Still, such a great SPOILER. Worthy of a tribute, I should think. Watch above and then relieve that amazing SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER are the jump. The Red Wedding ain’t got nothin’ on Purple… [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
Illustrator Cindy Suen has taught us how to read our cats’ body language with her cute cartoons. But now we’ve been gifted with a live-action counterpart with real cats! Jeff Wysaski of Pleated Jeans has created his own funny take on what our cats might be thinking, and it’s a bit more close to home than we cat owners would probably like to admit. Your cat just might be a devious schemer on the inside. [Laughing Squid]
At long last, the final season of “Mad Men” is upon us. It’s been almost a year since we last saw the ad men (and women) at Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce (and Cutler, Gleason and Chaough, but that’s quite a mouthful), and we hope tonight’s premiere provides answers to all of questions left unanswered in the last season’s finale.
Like, what will Don Draper do now that he’s on forced sabbatical from the agency? Will Sally ever get recover from walking in on her father schtupping Mrs. Rosen? Is Bob Benson really gay? Or a spy? Or both? How far back has Pete Campbell’s hairline receded? (Oh, wait. We know the answer to that one.)
So, ignore that last question. Concerning everything else: FANS NEED TO KNOW THESE THINGS! AND BEFORE PETE’S WIDOW’S PEAK GETS ANY MORE TERRIFYING!
After watching the first season of “The Writer’s Room” on Netflix, I think I’m more than qualified to present the following hypothetical plot points and storylines for the Season 7 finale, airing this Sunday, April 13 at 10/9c on AMC. Some are probably more plausible than others, but I the show is known for its twists; so, really, anything’s possible, right?
Beware: Spoilers ahead. Try not to trip. Keep reading »
The seventh and final season of “Mad Men” starts tonight at 10/9C on AMC. The cast and writers have been tight-lipped about what’ll happen this season, but it’s fun to guess. Will our predictions earn us a BINGO? Let’s play!
Did you know that sloths squeak!? Is this common knowledge to everybody else? I guess I had never thought before about “what does the sloth say?” I don’t know how I existed on this earth for so long without knowing that sloths’ squeaks are as cute as their little smiles. But this video of the sounds they make rocked my whole world. They sound kind of like human babies, only way better! (And with, uh, claws.) [E! Online]
Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either. There will always be another party, another pub crawl, another picnic. The time you’ll spend indulging in the things you want to do, alone, are well worth it. Here’s a handy list of awesome things to do this weekend! Keep reading »
I don’t think I’ve seen “Ghost” for about 20 years, back when A) my mother had a crush on Patrick Swayze and B) everything in this movie went over my kindergarten-aged head. It’s probably just as well, because as this new video by CinemaSins so helpfully points out, “Ghost” has more than a few bloopers and inconsistencies. And terrible early-’90s special effects. Enjoy!

Didn’t make it to Coachella in time (or at all) to see Outkast reunite? No worries, their entire set is above! (That crowd is not nearly hyped enough, especially considering how much Andre 3000 and Big Boi must be suffering in all them layers in the desert heat.)
