"West Wing" Back Together!

Michigan Supreme Court candidate Bridget Mary McCormack has the campaign ad to trump all campaign ads: her sister Mary McCormack was on “The West Wing” and pulled some strings to get the cast together and film this amazing four-minute long Aaron Sorkin-style ad. All my old favorites are back — Donna! CJ! Josh! — and they’re walking-and-talking just like the old days. Who knows if it will actually inspire folks in Michigan to vote, though. It might just make bitter “Newsroom” haters like me cry into our “West Wing” DVDs. [YouTube]

Vogue Excludes Women Novelists From Edith Wharton Spread

  • New Mexico briefly suggested women prove they were victimized by “forcible rape” in applications for childcare assistance. This piece by Reproductive Health Reality Check does a really fantastic job explaining why phrases like “forcible rape” and “legitimate rape” hurt victims and don’t help people who need care.

Check It Out: Intel & Toshiba’s Social Film “The Beauty Inside”

Watch The First Episode!

I pretty much use Facebook exclusively to post pictures of my dog and complain about the outcomes of my favorite reality TV competition shows. But plenty of other people — and companies — use the social networking platform in more creative ways. For example, Intel and Toshiba teamed up with director Drake Doremus (who did the movie “Like Crazy,” which I loved), and actors Topher Grace and Mary Elizabeth Winstead to create “The Beauty Inside,” a social film about a guy named Alex (Grace does his internal monologue) and his girlfriend Leah (Winstead). The film is broken down into a series of episodes in which, each day, Alex wakes up with a different face and body (he uses his Toshiba Portégé Ultrabook — product placement! — to document his changing appearance). The filmmakers held an audition process in order to cast actual audience members to portray Alex in his various states of appearance in the episodes and on his Facebook Timeline. You can watch the first episode above and check out the whole “Beauty Inside” social film on their Facebook page.

Seriously, you have GOT to hear this.

When someone dares to karaoke a Whitney Houston song, the end result usually falls somewhere between “tragic” and “ear-splitting.” So when this random girl stepped up to the karaoke microphone in the electronics department of a Singapore grocery store and cued up “I Will Always Love You,” nobody paid much attention. But when she started singing? Well, hit play to see for yourself (skip to 3:20 for that famous “And IIIIIIIIII” moment). Now someone get this girl a record deal and a show in a venue that doesn’t have a toilet paper aisle! [YouTube]

I forbid you to talk about how next week is the finale of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo.” No, we are NOT going to discuss it. I am still working on my post-”Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” contingency plan and until then, I am choosing to remain in denial. Let’s talk about last night’s episode, the theme of which, I’ve decided, was FACE.  Everyone was giving it. Mostly not on purpose. There was also plenty of farting and snot. Obviously. Some of my favorite moments after the jump. Keep reading »
