I love this video, which helpfully outlines just why and how cats rule and dogs drool. The only small suggestion I have is that they hire German director Werner Herzog to narrate the next one. This video is instructive, and very, very accurate (though Amelia and Lucca might say otherwise). [Buzzfeed]
Just kidding! This is obviously not actually Glenn Close’s body, but merely a strange photo opp that took place during Sunday night’s Emmy Awards. A lot of weird stuff goes on backstage at the Emmys — and there are tons of personal gifting suites, so that rich people who can afford anything are able to get everything for free. Apparently this photo was part of some gift suite mayhem. That’s great and all, but can somebody please ask Glenn Close to stop staring at me?
You’ve always wondered what it might be like to get with that older, distinguished dude in your office, right? You’re all, “What was life like before the Internet?” And he’s all, “Shut up and help me boot up my computer.” You’re so clearly meant for each other, if only he could see it! Our friend Almie Rose has made this helpful video which will guide you through the process of snagging an older guy. Enjoy! — Editors
A friend of mine received a lovely bouquet of flowers from her bosses, congratulating her on a job well done. Ally is an editor of a new travel magazine, and we think the card was supposed to read: “Congratulations on your new magazine, miss editor-in-chief. –Adam and Jake.” But that is so, so, so not what was typed up on the card. Irony!
What were the most cutting edge men of the 1950s wearing to the beach? Butt-baring barely-there swimwear, if this old reel is any indication. This fashion show, highlighting the creations of campy Brit designer Dale Cavana, features male models with shockingly tiny waists, revealing animal-print banana hammocks, and de rigeur “leisurely” knotted ties. Enjoy! [YouTube]
I’ve always been a fan of the show “Community,” starring dreamy Joel Mchale and a cast of other talented comedians. But after watching their series of season four bloopers, I definitely want to hang out with them. Their set looks like so much fun! (Though it might actually not be, given the feud between “Community” creator Dan Harmon and Chevy Chase. Harmon was fired as a result.) So I’m hereby publicly offering myself as an additional member of the gang. I can’t rap like Alison Brie, but I’m hoping they can find a spot for me on their team. [YouTube]
Sick of having the same-old-same-old convo with your misogynist friends and neighbors? Tired of always having to explain to your nearest and dearest how your annoying feminism is an inflexible, static part of your political worldview? Then maybe you need to cut to the chase and get one of these “Feminist Killjoy” necklaces. Made by Etsy shop It Was Me, the Feminist Killjoy necklace gets right to the point and says what everyone’s thinking anyway. As the folks at It Was Me explain, “Do you stop watching television shows when they disrespectfully portray trans women? Did you tell your boyfriend he wasn’t getting any until he paid for half of your birth control? Do you resent rape culture with every fiber of your being? Well, there maaaaay be a chance that you are a feminist. Perhaps even a humorless one. A FEMINIST KILLJOY!” Plus, a portion of the proceeds go to Planned Parenthood and the Eastern Massachusetts Abortion Fund. So you can put your feminist killjoy money where your feminist killjoy mouth is. [$32, Etsy]
Penn Badgely, like the rest of the “Gossip Girl” cast, is just biding his time until that abomination of a show is over. And in the meantime, he’s made this perfectly awesome parody of Steinbeck’s East of Eden with the guys from Periods films. Periods makes super funny, anachronistic renditions of great works of literature (my favorite is their take on Edith Wharton’s Ethan Frome). Enjoy Badgely as the totally dickish twin in Eden.

Somehow I’ve made it until just now before hearing the song “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen. I know, it’s really quite amazing that I’ve managed to avoid the most catchy, popular, ear-defying song of the moment. I’d planned on avoiding it forever, but then this video, featuring a mysterious bikini-ed man, made it’s way into my inbox, and I was forced to hear it. Is Chatroulette still a thing? Because I guess people are still on there, which is weird. But either way, if I had to hear “Call Me, Maybe,” I’m glad it happened this way — with a dude in drag freaking out a bunch of teenage boys on the Internet. [YouTube]
I’m a tad bit frightened of the evil genius who came up with Facemath, a site devoted to showing how two celebrity faces combine to make a third face. For instance, if Bijou Phillips and Melinda Clarke (who played Julie Cooper on “The O.C.”) made a baby, that baby would be Emma Stone. And if Reba McIntyre and Andy Dick combined genetic materials, they’d make a Kathy Griffin. The comparisons are uncanny — and troubling. What strange, incredible person devoted their life’s work to this? Perhaps we’ll never know. [Facemath]
