You know, up until this point, I have maintained a modicum of sympathy for Camille Cosby. Maybe she’s really had no fucking clue that her husband is a serial rapist who drugs women. (Alleged-fucking-ly. EYE ROLL.) Maybe he is JUST THAT GOOD of an actor. And maybe it’s possible that we just don’t know what steps she’s taking to end her marriage now that over a dozen women have come forward sharing incredibly similar stories about how the entertainer lured them to his apartment, often under the guise of an “audition,” drugged their drinks and then sexually assaulted them.

Rapping comedian Zach Sherwin released a rap about Serial over the show’s theme song yesterday, just in time for the show’s finale on Thursday. (It’s a great idea — the song makes for an awesome beat!) Sherwin addresses most of the conversations that have surrounded the podcast: The exploitation of Hae Min Lee’s death for entertainment, how much more informed host Sarah Koenig has been than the audience and what her strategy has been in releasing the information she has, and the fact that the show has barely touched the issue of race despite the fact that most of the people discussed on the show are people of color from diverse backgrounds. And, of course, the fact that the show is totally engrossing and addictive – goodness knows, listening to it has been one of my white-guilty pleasures for the last three months.
Regarding the note that Sherwin ends on: We really don’t know what’s going to happen during the show on Thursday, and I’m anxious that it’s going to end without a real conclusion. What do you think? Speculate in the comments! [YouTube]

Besides, why would you leave the house when your skin is cracking, your lips are chapped and your leg hair won’t stop growing? Ain’t nobody got time for that. But unfortunately, life goes on, and we’re forced to face the harsh realities of the cold, including these common beauty problems that plague us all each and every winter. Keep reading »
I don’t know what I expected to happen when a rubber band ball is sawed in half, but I certainly did not anticipate feeling a mixture of delight, fear and revulsion. Like, I am oddly terrified of, grossed out by and dying to touch whatever is happening on my screen right now. [IFL Science!]
2014 has been a year of many highs, many lows, and many assholes. And in our hopes to start the New Year with a fresh slate, we’re most excited about leaving behind the legendary douchebagginess of this year’s biggest offenders. So without further ado, here are 24 people (and groups) who need to never return in the New Year.
