The Many Stages Of Doing Your Taxes (In GIFs!)
Last Minute Tax Tips
Here's some straightforward advice on how to do your taxes. Read More »

Oh, tax season. Doing my taxes stresses me the hell out: I do so much freelance writing that I have one million forms. And trust me, if you screw up your taxes — even unintentionally — the IRS will hunt you down like a dog. I always say this year will be different, this year I’ll do it all by myself on TurboTax. Instead, I just hyperventilate for weeks.

Anyone else with me on this?

Leonardo DiCaprio (Maybe) Caught On Tape Dancing Wildly At Coachella

Leonardo DiCaprio (Maybe) Caught On Tape Dancing Wildly At Coachella
Please Let This Be Leo!

Leonardo DiCaprio is a serious actor with a reputation for partying hard, but it’s rare that we actually get to see this wild side in action. That’s maybe why the internet is so excited about this video shot by someone at this weekend’s Coachella Music Festival, which reportedly features Leo dancing like a maniac to the band MGMT. (While you can’t see his face, the actor was spotted wearing basically the same outfit that day.)  Those are some … moves. [Huffington Post]

8 Criminals Who Were Caught With Their Pants Off

I know as well as anyone that nothing stands between a woman and her wine, and in the case of Florida’s Desiree J. Taylor, that includes pants. The 35-year-old woman was caught on a surveillance camera meandering around a Publix supermarket in Ocala in just a T-shirt and a pair of slippers, listening to music on her tablet, and then waltzing out of the store with a stolen case of boxed wine under her arm. She was arrested yesterday morning on charges of disorderly conduct, resisting a merchant and petty theft, police said. I’m guessing they decided not to charge her with indecent exposure on account of the fact that she at least paired her pantlessness with a T-shirt that came down to the tops of her thighs. Let this be a lesson, criminals — if you’re going to go pantless, make sure you’re at least wearing a top that could pass for a mini dress. [Crime Feed]

Shockingly enough, pantless crimes are really quite common. It seems like every other week I read a story about the police picking up a perp who forgot to put his or her pants on before committing some nefarious deed. Way to be discreet! Here are just eight mostly recent examples of criminals who drew even more attention to their illegal activity by breaking the law pantless

“RuPaul’s Drag Race” Promises It Will No Longer Use The Transgender Slur “She-male”

rupauls drag race
  • The reality show “RuPaul’s Drag Race” announced it will no longer use the word “she-male,” a slur against transgender folks. They also promised to quit doing a segment called “Female or She-male?” in which contestants had to guess, based on a photograph, whether a they were looking at a cisgender woman (someone who identifies with the gender she was assigned at birth) or a trans woman. “We did not intend to cause any offense, but in retrospect we realize that it was insensitive,” the channel Logo said in a statement. Good on them for listening to complaints and taking action. [Huffington Post]
  • Paris Hilton confronted Kelly Osbourne at Coachella and called her a “bitch,” Kelly tweeted at Paris to “please grow up,” and Paris feigned dumb. The lifecycle of another starlet feud is complete. [Page Six] Keep reading »

Life Dream Status: Watch My Interview With “This Is Hot 97″‘s Old Man Ebro & Laura Stylez

Ebro & Laura Stylez Discuss This Is Hot 97

There are two things that get me out of bed in the morning: a cup of coffee and Hot 97, New York City’s biggest and best hip hop station. For the last, oh, four years, the “Hot 97 Morning Show” has not only been rousing my tired ass out of bed, but making me sing/rap in the shower, dance around my apartment while I’m getting dressed, and laugh ’til my sides hurt. I’m so obsessed with the morning show’s four hosts — Peter Rosenberg, Cipha Sounds, Old Man Ebro and Laura Stylez — that I regularly tweet at them like they’re my friends and I wrote them a lengthy love letter for Valentine’s Day one year. Now, with the debut of “This Is Hot 97″ on VH1 a few weeks ago, the rest of America is going to be as in love with these four — not to mention fellow station DJs Funkmaster Flex, Angie Martinez and Miss Info — as I am.

Travel Porn: The Northern Lights Over Iceland

Northern Lights Over Iceland
I want to go to there. Now.

My current life/travel obsession is seeing the northern lights. I’ve been gleefully researching where and when I’d have the best chance of seeing them, and although Alaska, Sweden, and Norway all sound amazing, this time lapse video of the northern lights over Iceland this past winter might have just made my decision for me. It’s almost painfully beautiful. [Laughing Squid]
