Amy Poehler is really not doing much to discourage my desire to kidnap her children and raise them as my own. Archie and, squeeeee, Abel (my favorite, if I’m being honest) sound do frickin’ adorable! And it sounds like Amy is an awesome mom and all signs indicate that she and, sigh, Will Arnett are handling their recent split with maturity and grace.

Okay, this Grace Helbig chick is a little grating. But Amy Poehler’s swoop-in to field a question on how to survive freshman year has me convinced she needs her own talk show. How awesome would that be? (No offense, Katie Couric.) “Eat your feelings” = best life advice for everything. [Flavorwire]
I woke up last Sunday morning — well, I don’t know that I was truly awake, but at least I wasn’t in bed any more — and stumbled to the kitchen for a giant glass of water with which to defuzz my thoroughly whiskey-fied mouth. In my hangover haze, I glanced across the living room to the coffee table, which held two empty glasses and a piece of old mail with my late-night scrawl on the back. It was a playlist.
We’d started with Darius Rucker’s new single, “True Believers,” because Patrick and I are true believers in pop country music. Now we are, anyways — I used to have more than a little detached irony mixed in with my Kenny Chesney appreciation, but that’s long since disappeared over the years of my relationship with Patrick, whose genuine love for the genre is both charming and contagious.
It’s becoming something of a tradition for the two of us: we spend a Saturday evening hanging out at the bar with a group of Austin feminists and allies that meet monthly to shore up our belief in the world being a livable place, and then we come home, drink whiskey on the rocks and watch music videos for hours. We sing along. We dance with each other. We trade stories about where we were when this or that song was popular. We debate the musical merits of the Zack Brown Band as musical successor to Jimmy Buffet. Keep reading »
- NOOOOOOOOO!!! Amy Poehler and Will Arnett have confirmed to Us Weekly that they are separating after nine years of marriage. They have two big serious babies together, Abel and Archie Arnett. Our faith in love’s endurance is forever shattered. If these two crazy kids can’t make it, who can? I guess this means the blind item from Dlisted a few weeks ago is actually true. [BuzzFeed]

Is there something wrong with me that I totally relate to “Ask Amy,” Amy Poehler’s video advice series for teen girls? Because I still tuck my dress into my panties all the time and embarrass myself in front of everyone, like, every week. When Amy Poehler gives a gentle lecture about needing to learn how to laugh at yourself, it sounds so easy. Her sons Archie and Abel are lucky, lucky kids. [YouTube]
We love Amy Poehler’s website Smart Girls At The Party, which aims to inspire and empower teen girls, so we’re super excited for the launch of Smart Girls’ new series, “Ask Amy.” In the series, Amy answers reader emails while lounging on the bed like the cool aunt we always wished we had. The first question comes from a 14-year-old who wants to know how to feel pretty when her dad won’t let her wear makeup. Watch the video to hear Amy’s thoughtful answer! [YouTube]
Amy Poeher, comedy goddess that she is, can’t not say funny stuff at all times. During a recent talk at the 92nd Street Y, Poehler answered a few questions from Tumblr users, like “What makes Will Arnett cry?” and “What’s the first time you remember making people laugh?” Also, Poehler recommends we all make out to the new Usher song “Climax,” which she guarantees will be a future strlp club hit. No doubt.
Remember Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day? Well that’s Amy Poehler’s life, according to this hilarious interview on the new IFC show, “Comedy Bang Bang.” Created by one of the guys who invented “Between Two Ferns With Zach Galifianakis,” “Bang Bang” features host Scott Aukerman and musician/comedian Reggie Watts, who is literally everywhere these days. Also, check out Amy’s sweet hairdo, guys. She’s looking mighty fly. (Psst, this episode also features a special song from Will Forte!) [Cinema Blend]
