Who’s excited for the third season of “Girls”?! I am, especially after seeing this new promo which indicates the show is finally getting a dose of real diversity. Hannah has a new roommate — and she’s from Albania! Surely nothing will make whiny twentysomethings Hannah, Marnie, Shoshanna and Jessa realize how good they have it like hearing the sad story behind Blerta’s rubber hand. Right?
Sadly, HBO’s new teaser trailer for “Girls” season three, made up of a bunch of Instagram-style photos from the set, tells us just about nothing in the way of plot points. Well, that’s not entirely true; we know that Hannah and Adam will hug and that the whole gang will go to the beach. I think I’ll have to watch this six or seven more times in slow mo to see if I can Nancy Drew anything else. At least I have something to do until the new season premieres next year. [NYMag.com]
God bless, Adam Driver. He’s elevated High Fashion Magazine Donkey Riding to an artform.

It’s no secret that fewer girls than boys go into the STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and math). But Jean MacDonald, the founder of App Camp For Girls, is doing something great to start to change that. Inspired by Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp for Girls, App Camp aims to make women currently involved with designing iPhone and iPad apps into mentors for girls interested in technology fields.
MacDonald got the idea for creating this non-profit while she was at a software conference and realized that she could not even see another woman in the room from where she was sitting. The goal of the program is to begin to shift the gender imbalance in the software field so that more women are involved. The camp is a great way for girls 12-14 to gain self-esteem, interest, and knowledge while having fun. Keep reading »
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]
