I blame Zooey Deschanel. Not just because I blame Zooey Deschanel for most of my problems — why men in my demographic seem to all want some unattainable manic pixie dream girl, why my bangs will never be perfect — but I specifically blame her for the rise of the word “Adorkable.” Deschanel used it on her new TV show “The New Girl” and somehow, inexplicably, it has taken hold. And it is a terrible word.

But “adorkable”–which we assume means something or someone that’s both dorky and adorable–is hardly the only newish term that’s made a creeping rise into our vocabularies and the general consciousness. We’ve come to cringe at a variety of oft-heard terms. Below, the words, phrases and annoying sayings that we’re hoping we won’t hear in 2012. And please, feel free to add your own “adorkables” in the comments. Keep reading »

When Amy Winehouse passed away after a long battle with drug and alcohol addiction, there was an understandable fear that the circumstances surrounding her death would overshadow the talent she had in life. But the response from fans and many critics to Lioness: Hidden Treasures, her posthumous album, out today, suggests we have nothing to worry about. Recorded over the course of her career, many of these tracks are remastered versions of old favorites, like “Valerie” and “Tears Dry On Their Own.” But there are also a few new tunes, like a gorgeous cover of “Our Day Will Come” and a collaboration with rapper Nas called “Like Smoke.” While Lionessisn’t the Winehouse album we would have gotten if she was still with us today, the craving that remains for Amy’s music above all else is proof that her true legacy lives on. [$9.99, Amazon]
