The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders was first developed in the 1950s by the American Psychiatric Association as a way to classify and define mental problems. It covers a whole host of problems, including clinical disorders, personality disorders, and intellectual disabilities. And it’s been revised several times since its original publication, to include new and emerging psychological problems.

But even so, we think the DSM isn’t quite complete. In fact, we’ve been experiencing an array of disorders of late that we think should definitely come under review by the APA for potential inclusion. That’s because we believe these disorders are now widespread and very, very debilitating. After the jump, we give you a list of some of the new disorders we believe we — and you — might be suffering from. Keep reading »

Thanks to Facebook we’re all looking at photos of our friends and family pretty much constantly. In some ways, this has made people better at taking and posing for photos — most of us know which side is our good side and which activities we probably shouldn’t document online — but it’s also highlighted some really awkward and annoying poses that, for whatever reason, are still going strong. Here are 10 popular photo poses we totally wouldn’t miss (full disclosure: I’m totally guilty of every single one of these). Feel free to add your own nominations in the comments! Keep reading »

“Game Of Thrones”’ Battle Of The Blackwater Almost Didn’t Happen

Producers of HBO’s hit “Game of Thrones“ were left in a bind when they had to plan the series’ memorable Battle of Blackwater, due to budget constraints. In fact, the first plan was to have the entire battle off-screen.

Much like stage plays, producers and writers were going to have battle updates coming from a messenger. The maidens of the castle gathered in Maegor’s Holdfast to wait out the battle with the castle’s executioner – who was there to give the women a clean death instead of leaving them to the occupying forces.

“A lot of my earlier songs are blaming other people and never thinking that I ever did anything wrong, because I was always trying to be completely loyal and honest and pure. It’s so nice to come to a place where you can see how you absolutely enabled all these things to happen. It makes you stop being angry at people. It makes you start being more empathetic. … Even when now there have been times that I’ve just felt so, so bad, I can take myself out of it for a moment and go: ‘You watch, you’ve felt this way before, you’re going to feel great again. And then you’re going to feel terrible again, and then you’re going to feel great again.’ And when you’re feeling this way, at least know that there’s value in it — just as much value in your suffering as in your pleasure.         “

– This piece in The New York Times about Fiona Apple and her new album is filled with gems.  She talks about once being so angry at her label (which kept her new album in limbo forever) that she would hike for eight hours a day, every day, until she could no longer walk and needed months of physical therapy afterwards. She also talks about her ex-boyfriend, the magician David Blaine, and playing in “the big water tank he uses to drown in.” You know, normal relationships stuff.  She is so crazy-in-a-good-way.  [NY Times] [Photo: NY Times]

Well, she shaved her head and lost a ton of weight to play Fantine in the latest movie version of “Les Misérables,” but from the looks of this early trailer (the movie isn’t due out until Christmas), it was worth it. Anne Hathaway sings a pretty damn good rendition of “I Dreamed A Dream” as Victor Hugo’s ill-fated prostitute (who sells her hair and her teeth to take care of her own sickly child); hopefully the film is as solid because the last one — starring Uma Thurman, Claire Danes, and Liam Neeson — was terrrrrrible.
