It will get you dancing even when played over the crappy sound system at a street fair. It thinks that crop top was a great idea. So, no matter where you plan to “summer” this summer, be prepared and read our 2014 song of summer challenge first! Keep reading »
Today, let’s all resolve to not merely bleat weakly and coast toward the weekend, but to grab life by the horns, let out a rousing yell of excitement, and give it all we’ve got. Like this baby goat. [YouTube]

Louis C.K. did terrible grabbing, pushing, forced kissing and more to a lady on his teevee program “Louie” and everyone was freaked out. He tried to drag her into a bedroom and it was disturbing and I can’t watch the whole clip all at once because it makes me feel weird inside in an uncomfortable fashion, and not just because fanfuckingtastic Pamela Adlon was the voice of my beloved Bobby on “King of the Hill.” Jezebel has a good thing about it that you can read and ponder.
I do not like seeing this Comedy Hero pretend-attempt to rape a lady, which is probably good, because if I were into that sort of thing, I should probably be in even more therapy. Anyway, I think “Louie” starts important conversations on important things, and it’s the closest thing we presently have to the socially conscious sitcoms of the ’70s and early ’80s (and also “Roseanne,” thank you very much) and that is why we’re talking about it right now.

Thor, a Great Dane puppy, is supposed to wake up at 3:30 in the morning to go to work with his human. He sounds just like we did, oh, every single morning of high school. Can you really blame him for wanting to stay in bed? It’s okay, Thor. Lots of humans act the same way in the mornings. You’ll get used to it. [Tastefully Offensive]
It’s been six long years since we’ve heard any solo tunes from Jenny Lewis, and every day without her mellifluous voice has been harder than the one before it. However, at long last, it looks like the musical drought is over! This week, the ex-Rilo Kiley frontwoman released the lyric video for “Just One Of The Guys,” the first single off her long-awaited third album, The Voyager, out July 29. [Does cabbage patch dance here.]
Directed by Lior Molcho, the clip features a photo carrousel of Jenny in various poses, sporting a pair of white cat-eye sunglasses while wearing a white suit with a rainbow airbrushed on the top half of the jacket. Visually, the lyric video is an extension of the album’s cover art, which features Lewis wearing the same ensemble, and was shot by famed photographer Autumn de Wilde. Keep reading »
What are you looking forward to this summer? Sure, it may not be Oscar season, but there are plenty of movies, books, music, TV shows, and holidays we’re jazzed about. We’ll skip the Tom Cruise and Ninja Turtles flicks—there’s plenty of art on its way that’s more up our alley. Have a look at The Frisky’s summer calendar, broken down by month, after the jump!

It’s wedding season, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t already tired of reading about bridesmaid dresses and flower arrangements every time I look at social media. I thinks that’s why this video of a wedding shoot gone awry has me giggling so hard. Bride and groom Dan and Jackie Anderson were joined by 20 bridesmaids and groomsmen when things started to go a little south, literally. Given the way this video is making the rounds, I’m going to have to assume they have a good sense of humor about it and still had a fantastic wedding. Those drycleaning bills must have sucked, though. [The Daily Dot]
From “You got it dude” to “Bazinga!” it’s almost like TV shows have their own special language that viewers need to understand to be in on the joke. Of course that’s part of the reason we watch in the first place. Check out this supercut of some of TV’s finest catchphrases and see how many you remember! [Laughing Squid]
“People always try to pop off or call her bluff at bars. One of them, I don’t want to say the guy’s name, but he’s the lead singer of a very popular rock band. His initials are C.K.”
–Blake Shelton revealed in this week’s issue of Rolling Stone that his wife (and the mag’s cover girl!) Miranda Lambert once got in a bar fight with a certain rock star. Upon reading this and seeing the “C.K.” initials, my mind immediately went to Nickelback singer/Avril Lavigne soulmate Chad Kroeger, but I assumed that was just because I’m always thinking about Chad Kroeger. Plus, the thought of Miranda throwing down with Chad Kroeger at a bar seemed to good to be true. Right? Right? Turns out it’s totally true. Apparently the brawl went down at Miranda’s 27th birthday party, when drunk Chad was trying really hard to get the birthday girl to do a shot with him. When Miranda said no, Chad went into full-on douche mode and told her she didn’t need to be “a bitch” about it. Miranda, being Miranda, threw her drink in his face. New favorite celebrity anecdote? Check. One more reason to love Miranda? Double check. [EOnline]
