Okay, so I liked prodigal filmmaker Lena Dunham’s debut film, “Tiny Furniture.” It was quirky, original and totally captured the nebulous insecurity and waivering self-loathing you feel post-college.

Watch the clip after the jump. Keep reading »
We should have known that the kids from PS22 would create perhaps the most touching tribute to Whitney Houston. Last week, the kids taped this moving rendition of Houston’s “Greatest Love of All,” featuring incredible, goosebump-producing solos from Kahlil and Kiarah. We love these kids. And we also love that chorus instructor Mr. B finally cut off that man ponytail. Lookin’ good! [YouTube]
