I simply can’t resist a quality cat video and this compilation of the best kitties the year has seen so far is well worth the nine minutes it will take to watch it. You read that right. Nine minutes. [YouTube]

Weekend Shut-In Worksheet: Binge On "Orange Is The New Black" Season 2, Read Me Before You & Learn To Braid Your Bangs

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 holiday weekend!

Here Are The Best And Worst U.S. Cities For Your Summer Travels

Here Are The Best And Worst US Cities For Your Summer Travels

I think just about everyone is dreaming of getting out of their hometown for a few days this time of year, plane ticket prices be damned. Luckily for us, WalletHub has ranked 50 US cities for vacationing this summer, and their listing was heavily based on affordability.

To determine their list, WalletHub took a look at TripAdvisor and Fly.com to seek out the most popular vacation destinations of the summer, and combined that with Census Bureau data to find the largest metropolitan areas in the country. Then, they analyzed flights on Kayak.com for the month of July (the most popular time for summer travel), looking for quality departure points, affordable and quick travel routes, and logistically and financially accessible destinations. In each major city, they broke down round-trip flights to popular vacation spots by cost, duration and number of connections. Apparently, when it comes to getting out of town, the airport you’re planning to depart from can make or break whether you can afford the trip. Some cities have a much better track record than others of offering quick and affordable flights — and it’s not always so easy to see which cities are doing best in this category without a little digging!

Zuzanna Szadkowski Of “Gossip Girl” Will Be On “Girls” Next Season!

For those of you who are still mourning the end of “Gossip Girl” (like myself), listen up: our beloved Dorota will soon be finding her way back to the television screen. Zuzanna Szadkowski, who played the Upper East Side’s favorite housekeeper/best friend/maternal figure, will appear in the next season of “Girls.” Andrew Rannells, who plays Elijah on the series, revealed Szadkowski’s involvement with “Girls” last night at the Gordon Parks Foundation Awards. Apparently, they’ve been friends since high school and were super excited to get to spend some time together on camera. So far, Szadkowski’s role in the series has been kept secret. I can only imagine what kind of character they’ll have her play. Can’t. Wait. [NYMag.com]

Do You Think Instagram Is More Personal Than Facebook?

Do You Think Instagram Is More Personal Than Facebook?

I don’t spend much time on Facebook or Twitter, but it’s not because I’m “above” social media — I just happen to pour all of my social media obsession into Instagram. Yesterday, when my friend sent me an article called “You’re Using Instagram All Wrong” (um, I didn’t know there was a “right” and  ”wrong” way to use an app for pretty pictures), I simply had to read it to know whether I was a “correct” Instagram user.

Well, apparently, I am a very, very bad Instagram user. Keep reading »

How Feminists Watch Commercials

How Feminists Watch Commercials

Actually, yes, this does accurately sum up how I watch both shaving cream commercials and the E! channel. For the sake of comediennes Akilah Hughes and Suzanne Hitchman, I hope other feminists are able to laugh at this, too. [YouTube]

6 Reasons You Need To See “Obvious Child”

"Obvious Child"

It’s not often that I endorse dragging your butt to go see a movie in the theater. Tickets cost as much as a cocktail, theatergoers are rude, the floors are sticky, and you can watch pretty much anything you want on Netflix and Hulu now anyway. But really, go see “Obvious Child,” starring Jenny Slate, Gaby Hoffman and Jake Lacy, which opens this weekend in NYC and LA (before heading to theaters nationwide this month). You heard me: GO! Here are six reasons why you can’t miss this movie … Spoilers ahead! Keep reading »

Leave Tyrion Alone! Plus, 8 TV Character Deaths That Crushed Me

Warning: This post contains spoilers about the most recent episodes of “Game of Thrones.”

Uh oh, y’all. I’m worried. After last week’s gruesome conclusion to “Game of Thrones,” in which Oberyn was defeated by Gregor Clegan in the battle to the death that determined Tyrion Lannister’s eventual fate, I’ve started to get really, really concerned that the Imp might not make it out of this season alive. But would George R. R. Martin really kill off such a vital and beloved character? Of course he would! He’s done it time and time again! But if Evil Bitch Queen Cersei gets her wish and has Tyrion executed for the murder of King Joffrey, I will be wrecked. Wrecked!

Listen, as a semi-professional TV watcher, I’ve endured plenty of TV character deaths without shedding a tear, so this isn’t me being melodramatic. Walter White? Saw his death coming and, in fact, hoped for it. Brody on “Homeland”? Whatever, that tiny mouth annoyed me. Andrea on “The Walking Dead”? Did a jig on her fictional grave! But some TV deaths have hit me harder than others. Dear God, “Game Of Thrones,” please don’t make me add Tyrion Lannister to this list…

Adults Can Read Whatever The Hell They Want

Adults Can Read Whatever The Hell They Want

Well, well, well. And what do we have here? Just a clickbait article from my (usually lovely) Slate called “Against YA.” And the subhed is fun: “Read whatever you want. But you should feel embarrassed when what you’re reading was written for children.”

Oh.

It’s on, motherfuckers. Keep reading »

How Many Of Us Are Online At Any Given Second?

Ever wonder just how fast the Internet moves? PennyStocks put together one of the scariest, most mind-blowing GIF charts I’ve ever seen, illustrating just how much activity happens in each second online. This realtime infographic can show you how many people are Instagramming, Snapchatting, tweeting, pinning, and everything else digital under the sun. I can’t decide whether I’m inspired by the vastness of how connected we all are or just guilty over all the computer time I clock in every week. [Gizmodo via PennyStocks]
