I have a bizarre limerence for Scott Disick, the vaguely threatening, Patrick Bateman-esque father of Kourtney Kardashian‘s children. Maybe it’s because I’m from New England, but Disick’s combination of slick, preppy rich-boy style, unapologetic dogmatism, and self-reverential charm is exactly what I look for in someone to both lust after and loathe. What I didn’t realize, however, is that I’ve actually been crushing on Scott for ten years. Say whaaaaat. Keep reading »
I like to think of myself as a very refined person with very refined tastes. Sure, I watch reruns of “Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami” on the treadmill, and you may find the errant Rihanna hit on my iPod. I also enjoy a Mike’s Hard Lemonade from time to time, and have a hard time cutting an apple. But besides all that stuff, I am an intellectual, a sophisticate, an epicurean, and a scholar. Yep. All of those. Which is exactly why I am so disgustingly ashamed by how much I enjoy the comedic stylings (if you could call it that) of Andy Milonakis, the former star of MTV’s “The Andy Milonakis Show,” who is instantly recognizable due in part to a growth-hormone condition that renders him forever 12. Aside from being one third of hip-hop group ¡Three Loco! alongside RiFF RaFF and Dirt Nasty, Milonakis is the host of a new web series, a cooking show called “Makeshift Gourmet.” The first installment chronicles Andy as he puts a high-end spin on Hamburger Helper using “elevated ingredients,” and better still, the weirdness of it all is punctuated by the appearance of a giggly, sunglasses-clad David Arquette, who eats raw Wagyu beef before participating in a “beef slap.” God love ya, Andy. And David, too. [Huffington Post]
Okay, so maybe over the holiday weekend I got waylaid by a “Law & Order: SVU” marathon. The plot of this particular episode is sort of beside the point, but I’ll tell you anyway — it’s a ripped-from-the-headlines story abut a bunch of girls who make a pregnancy pact and a crazy mother (played by Debi Lazar, holllllller) who taunts one of the girls into suicide by pretending to be her baby-daddy, a graffiti artist and hip hop dude named Dizzer. Annnnnnyway the important things to know are that Dizzer works at a faux record store called Skribble Skratch and wears his hat precariously placed atop his head. Ice-T is not amused.
Guys, I know I push “Parks and Rec” on you all the time, but it’s really because I feel like it’s one of the few awesomely quirky weirdo shows out there. Plus, Ron Swanson’s mustache! Plus, Amy Poehler’s character Leslie Knope is actually rather headstrong and confident and a good role model. So many popular female characters are deeply and annoyingly insecure or fall into familiar tropes (the bitch, the harpy, the manic pixie), but Leslie is just Leslie: kind of nerdy, but super smart and accomplished and winsome. And, oh, here’ s a funny “Downton Abbey”/”Parks and Rec” parody, involving quotes from “P&R” paired with Downton’s dramatic images. [Downton Pawnee]
Every time I visit my friend Marlee and her six-year-old daughter Olivia, Olivia ends up commandeering Marlee’s smartphone so we can play Fruit Ninja. Well now, Scott, Brendo and their friends have created a live action version of Fruit Ninja, complete with massacred fruits and veggies. [YouTube]
All due respect and praise to the genius that came up with the salsa hat prototype, seen here. Think about how many versions of this edible tortilla hat were created and then failed, spilling delicious salsa all over the wearer. And a salsa hat is a great hat to get the party started — you’ll need to eat all the salsa in the hat bowl before it breaks, of course. [Cheezburger]
A few months ago, we showed you a devoted fan of Lil’ Bub, who decided to get Bub’s visage tattooed on her palm. Not to be outdone, the Grumpy Cat contingent found a similarly devoted minion, who sacrificed his body for Ol’ Grumpers. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Grumpy Tattoo. Of course this person lives in Philadelphia, because they are awesome.
After the jump, 14 more pieces of Grump-rific fan art, that we’re sure she would hate.
No one ever really asked what the bros had to say about the Republican “war on women.” Which was sad, really, because they stood to lose quite a lot of blowies if we all had to be barefoot and pregnant. They will be ignored no longer! Now Sarah Silverman is putting that whole having-dated-Jimmy-Kimmel thing to good use and is urging bros to be bro-choice. You should watch it, bro.
Would that we could all have the nonchalant attitude of Claw Crane Cat, nonplussed by the large grabby crane that seems to be continually invading his personal space. This Russian kitty just keeps on idly grooming himself amidst the arcade hubbub. What a zen pro. [The Daily What]
There are “cat” people and “dog” people, but what if there were actually cat people and dog people — people whose behavior mirrored that of our furry friends? Things would get weiiiiird. Hilariously weird. [YouTube]
