The adorably talented kids from Brooklyn’s PS22 Chorus have done it again! This time, they’re taking on Rihanna’s hot track “We Found Love” — one of my favorites! — giving the song a uniquely innocent and hopeful flair. Loves it.

As both a New Yorker and a bonafide Francophile, I am a madly adoring fan of the brilliant graphic designer Vahram Muratyan’s website, Paris versus New York. He compares the City of Lights to the Big Apple in a way that isn’t snarky, or biased toward one or the other — rather, they read more like romantic odes to both cities. His modern designs and prints have gained something of a following since his blog’s debut in 2010, and last week he released a 224-page book of his contrast-and-compare illustrations. If you’re a fan of Paris vs. NYC, or Paris, or NYC, or all of the above, you must get this book. It’s simple and lovely and makes me want to book a trip to La Ville-Lumière, dès que possible. Equally charming: this Blackbook interview with the artist. [$20, in Anthropologie stores and online]

It’s not easy being a 15-year-old wunderkind. Aside from the basic responsibilities of going to high school, blogger Tavi Gevinson also runs her own magazine — Rookie Mag — and covers Fashion Week. After the jump, we catch up with her as she prepares to head from her home in Chicago to New York for the festivities. One thing I love about this video: we get to hear Tavi’s sweet Midwestern-tinged accent, which makes her seem more like a normal kid and less like a teenage prodigy. [NYMag] Keep reading »

In between running the country and ramping up re-election his campaign, President Barack Obama made a Spotify playlist. Well, okay, his campaign team did, with some of the Prez’s favorites. What’s Obama listening to these days? A smattering of Wilco, Arcade Fire, U2, James Taylor and, of course, Al Green. Among the president’s more questionable picks: former Hootie and the Blowfish frontman Darius Rucker’s solo project, and — wait for it — Ricky Martin. “Livin’ la Vida Loca,” Barack?

I know, auto-tuning kind of peaked with Antoine Dodson’s “Bed Intruder,” but I think this auto-tuned video of “Bachelor” contestant Courtney Robertson signifies a resurgence of the trend. A very appropriate use of auto-tuning. Favorite thing: Ben as a puppet. Absolutely stinking brilliant. If he ends up with this chick, I am officially boycotting “The Bachelor.”  [Mashable]

If any of your Facebook friends are tweens — or adults with the emotional maturity of tweens — then you’ve surely noticed some drama going down in wall posts or status updates. A group called the Navy Seals of Comedy noticed, too, and thought the intensity of Facebook exchanges would translate well to a live reenactment. They turned a verbatim conversation between a few 7th graders into a script for a one-act play and the results are indeed dramatic. Also? Totally hilarious. [Buzzfeed]
