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. Here, posed atop said donkey with supermodel Daria Werbowy in the latest issue of Vogue, the “Girls” star’s steely gaze conveys a heady dedication to the task at hand. I will ride this donkey over the crest of this mountain and into the cusp of an uncertain future, he seems to be thinking. Follow us, follow us, follow us. Oh, and don’t step on the donkey poop.

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]
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]
