As popular and critically acclaimed as HBO’s “Girls” may be, chances are we won’t get to see Hannah, Marnie, Shoshanna and Jessa doing whatever it is they’d be doing in their golden years. But, say, what do you think they would be doing? This video does a pretty good job imagining what season 38 of the show would be like — exactly the same, but with more bunions. [YouTube]
You know you’ve made it when a porn star earns a paycheck off her likeness to you — so, congratulations Lena Dunham! “This Ain’t Girls XXX” stars the Hannah character breaking up with her boyfriend Adam to dabble with women (of course). Like the real “Girls,” the parody porn includes includes “mild BDSM,” including “dirty talk and rough sex” with a ballgag. And just like real “Girls,” the sex scenes get cringe-inducingly awkward. “I tried to make it as weird as possible,” Richie Calhoun, the actor who plays Adam, told the porn news site XBIZ. “I tried to say really weird things and do really weird positions.” Why it took as long as it did for “Girls” to get its own parody porn from Hustler will be the mystery of our generation. Or a mystery of a generation. [XBiz]
Ever sat down and considered the different types of men you attract? I don’t know about you, but like Hannah from “Girls,” I have attracted a plethora of fellas, from dirty-talking Republicans to poets with autism. Variety is the spice of life! Check out this hilarious deleted scene from “Girls”‘ second season above — there’s plenty more on the DVD set to be released in August. [Access Hollywood]
It’s not just Allison Williams who has locked lips with costar Jemima Kirke: the lovely, floaty Jemima appears in a bridal boutique lookbook for a New York City shop kissing another woman. Declaring “Fuck weddings” on their website, Stone Fox Bride says they have “a dress for every batshit bride out there,” which certainly sounds like Jessa on “Girls.” [Queerty]
“Bros” is a new series by some bros, in which they parody “Girls” in only the vaguest of terms. There are four bros who suddenly realize that by dressing like a bro’s version of a hipster, they can score hot hipster chicks. Where or how this is otherwise related to “Girls” is beyond me, but if you’re jonesing to see men in glitter shirts and cutoffs, well, this is the video for you. [YouTube]
Season 2 of “Girls” did not disappoint. We’ve seen divorce, new love, mental disorders, sex with a drug dealer, a journey to Staten Island with a kidnapped dog, and of course, that Q-tip scene.
Hannah dated a—gasp!—Republican, and also had a two-night stand with the super-sexy Patrick Wilson. Jessa ended her marriage with typical Jessa-flare (lots of cussing and smashing of objects), and Shoshanna is in her first serious relationship, like, ever! Keep reading »
“I never chalk up anything to the gender divide and say ‘Well, that’s just a male thing.’ I hate the conventional wisdom that men are supposedly complete pieces of shit and it’s our job as women to put up with them. Men are just as sensitive and easily victimized as women are, but there’s not as much of an infrastructure for expressing it. That drives me nuts. We’re all humans and doing human stuff. We’d have a better world if everyone had someone they could pay for talk therapy.”
– Lena Dunham sat down to answer 20 questions in the latest issue of Playboy and had some insightful things to say about men, feminism, and learning the birds and the bees. God, do I agree with her on this one — if everyone could just have access to a little therapy, even people who think they don’t need it, we’d all be better off, because we’d be addressing our shit instead of taking it out on other people — our friends, our families, the people we date, etc. When I become President, it’ll be free therapy for everyone! Hurrah! Anyway, click on to read some more choice quotes from Dunham’s Playboy interview… Keep reading »
I’m obsessed with “Girls” and of course, the euphonious line of Deborah Lippmann nail polishes inspired by them! Jessa, a color that can’t decide if it wants to be red or brown, or both. Marni, a polite pink that seems dainty but is actually quite strong. Shoshanna, a girlie lavender with a look-at-me streak of sparkle. And Hannah, a color unlike anything else out there. It’s a griege that desperately wants to be a neutral, but is too green to be anything but charmingly weird.
I wove the colors, like the character’s lives, into a nail art knit design for one of my fav real life New York girl, Marissa Stuart. Special thanks to her for hand modeling!
Get this look after the jump!

God love her, but Lena Dunham has a particular way about her. Which is why Chelsea Davison’s spot-on impersonation of Dunham auditioning for the movie “Zero Dark Thirty” is so hilarious. “You know,” says Davidson’s Dunham, “if I actually have to waterboard you, that is really going to scar me, like, emotionally.” [YouTube]
