Kate is only the 838th most popular name in the US, but to former Frisky staffer, Kate Torgovnick, it felt like number one sometimes. She often commented how it blew her mind how many freaking Kates there were out there. Maybe that’s what prompted her to start signing her emails K8. Anyhow, we miss her terribly, but she is doing groundbreaking work in the Kate-o-sphere with her new blog, Katebook. As you may be able to guess by the name, the blog is for Kates, by Kates and about Kates. Whether your name is Kate or not, it’s impossible not to enjoy reading up on the latest Katelines all expertly penned by our favorite Kate in the world.

Occasionally there are magical moments, like the spontaneous musical duet of ukulele player Jessica Latshaw and an unnamed percussionist yesterday morning. YouTube user mybs86 captured the whole thing: Keep reading »

You know that part in “There’s Something About Mary” where Matt Dillon’s character says he wants to “slow things down, read more books, see more movies”? I have that same thought a lot, usually when guilty pleasures have been hogging up my available brainspace. Where does all the time go? Will I ever finish that pile of books next to my bed? Why do I watch so many “Chelsea Lately” reruns instead? 

I don’t have the answers to these questions. But I do have a bunch of great suggestions of blogs and podcasts to check out to eke a little more culture into your life to balance all that “Jersey Shore” viewing. No, the half-an-episode the gang spent sight-seeing around Italy doesn’t count. Keep reading »

Premiere Of Fox Searchlight's "The Descendants" - Red Carpet

“There’s this strange thing that’s happened over the last 25 or 30 years where there’s this decision being made that women aren’t able to carry the box office. Now, ‘Bridesmaids’ has proved that to be bullshit, and ‘The Help’ has proven it to be bullshit. But it’s much harder to get a film with a woman lead made. When a man hits 40 is when roles just begin to happen. And for women it doesn’t happen. I find that to be a very concerning issue.”

– George Clooney continues to do what he does second best (after acting) in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly – making women swoon. Clooney sounds a little bit like a politician to me here — while he very well may be quite concerned about the status of women in Hollywood, it also sounds like he’s pandering a bit to a sizable portion of his fan base. Prove me wrong, George! I know — why doesn’t he step behind the camera again (his third biggest talent, as displayed in the well-done “Ides of March”) and direct a female lead himself? Another movie with Tilda Swinton, perhaps? Or Vera Farmiga? Or Helen Mirren? That would be rad. Just a thought. [Entertainment Weekly]

Jason somehow saw her quirky video and is reportedly considering saying yes. “My favorite thing, maybe ever,” he Tweeted Wednesday night. “I am in awe. Response on the way. I’m gonna need a couple days on this one.” Don’t think too long, Jason — somebody else might snatch Chelsea up. [YouTube]
