…unless you thought it was the horse doing yoga.
No it’s doing yoga, on a horse. And apparently, it’s a thing.
You don’t even have to bring your own horse. Just head to Arizona and look for crazy women wearing pink bandanas attending a “She-vent” at Hidden Meadow Ranch. With any luck, the photos of you doing yoga on a horse will be hidden from all your Facebook friends. Read more on TruTV….
Last night, I had the supreme good fortune of being able to see an early screening of “Star Trek Into Darkness,” the latest “Star Trek” reboot from J.J. Abrams. You. Guys. It was so so so soooooo goooooooood. I am dying to talk to someone about it, but no one else I know has seen it yet and I refuse to be that asshole who ruins the movie — especially by revealing who the villain is — for my fellow Trekkies. That violates the Prime Directive of, like, fandom. Anyway, I need to purge my emotions about the film though, so I put together this utterly spoiler-free (I swear!) review of the movie presented in GIFs from “Star Trek: The Original Series.” Keep reading »
Today in Things That Are Perfect: this “Arrested Development”/”Great Gatsby” mashup. With “Gatsby” out tomorrow (!!!!!!!!!!!!) and the new “AD” season set to hit Netflix on the 26th (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), the timing couldn’t be more appropriate. Like Kanye Wes Anderson before it, Bluths in the Jazz Age just fit. Some of our favorites, after the jump… [BookRiot] Keep reading »
Looking for a new apartment can be difficult anywhere, but in NYC it’s a bloodsport, and tales of shitty apartments are legendary.
Enter “The Worst Room,” a Tumblr chronicling, all-too-accurately, the shitty state of New York City apartment shopping. Tumblr creator Ryan says he made the site to “share the Craigslist postings I sift through on a daily basis trying to find decent, affordable housing in New York City.” And boy, are these crappy and overpriced — these apartments all-too-closely resemble crime scenes. And yes, I can say with experience, these are completely accurate depictions of how shitty and expensive city living can be. (There are also pleasant and affordable pads, too.)
So let’s take a gander at a few more terrible rooms Ryan’s found, shall we?

Have you been having trouble finding a good selection of clothing, hats, and hair extensions for your pet guinea pig? Fret no more, my friends: an online store called, fittingly, Guinea Pig Fashion has got you covered. The Japanese retailer carries a huge variety of cavy [That's another name for the guinea pig, FYI. -- Amelia] clothing and accessories, from basic tank tops to traditional kimonos to elaborate wedding dresses. Most items are less than $20, so you can afford to get your furry friend a whole new wardrobe! [Buzzfeed]
David Bowie gets what David Bowie wants, and if that means having Marion Cotillard and Gary Oldman star in his latest music video, then by God, that’s what’s going to happen. The Thin White Duke is at it again with this impressive video for the titular track from The Next Day, which you probably shouldn’t watch at work. There’s a couple of boobs in there. Also, Marion as church whore is my new style muse. [Vulture]
Capitalizing on “The Great Gatsby” has reached a jazzy new peak with limited edition ice cream in the spirt of Zelda Fitzgerald, the wife of Gatsby author F. Scott Fitzgerald. The Zelda Collection by Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams in Ohio and Tennessee opportunistically celebrates the writer and bon vivant’s “free spirt” with four different flavors which carry you from her childhood in Alabama to Paris in the Roaring Twenties: Blackberries + Sweet Cream, Cognac + Marmalade, Loveless Biscuits + Peach Jam, and Dark Chocolate Rye. Not sure if the Fitzgeralds are rolling over in their graves or thumbing their noses because there isn’t more alcohol involved. Either way, the Zelda Collection ice cream is sold out, so we’ll never know. [Jenis via Gothamist]
I realize that I’m appealing to a very niche segment of the Frisky readership with this vid, but indulge me. Some amazing YouTuber noticed that Commander William Riker (from “Star Trek: The Next Generation”) always heaves his leg over the chair when sitting down. Why?! He’s so tall! The chairs are always so short. SO UNNECESSARY. So Riker. [YouTube]
You guys! Apologies in advance for being the most awkward interviewer ever, but have you seen “Small Town Security” yet? The first season captured the utterly bonkers world of Joan Koplan and her merry band of security guards. To give you a brief summary: Joan is married to Irwin but Dennis thinks Joan is his soulmate. And Joan is mega crushing on Brian, who works in the company’s office. And! She’s also got a crush on Avril Lavigne. Joan and her head of security Dennis recently visited us at the Frisky, to talk about the new season, Dennis’s continuing FTM transition (yup, Dennis used to be a woman), and Joan’s romance secrets. I mean, you need to watch this show. The second season premieres Thursday, May 9 at 10/9 c on AMC.
Earworms. That’s what super catchy songs are sometimes referred to, because they burrow deep in your psyche and don’t let go. They become the soundtrack to whatever you’re doing — eating, shopping, working — and basically take over any spare brain space. Daft Punk’s new single “Get Lucky” is one of those earwormy tracks — an endlessly repeating riff featuring vocals from uber-charming Pharrell. The full length album, Random Access Memories, won’t be out in the states until May 21, but writer Alex Bailey deftly explains just what makes “Get Lucky” so compelling. Keep reading »
