This Fake “Lord Of The Rings” Subway Service Advisory Poster Isn’t All That Far From The Truth

"Lord of the Rings" fake subway service advisory

Relying on the New York City subway system is sometimes like relying on a three-legged, one-eyed horse for all of your transportation needs. Trying to get from my apartment off the G train to a friend’s apartment off the L train on a Saturday evening is a trip that should theoretically take 20 minutes, but instead involves a half-mile walk and piling onto a shuttle bus packed with 200 other miserable, sweaty hipsters shouting at the sad-looking old people who happen to be standing by the doors. In particular, ever since Hurricane Sandy hit a year ago, trying to get from one place to another has been like trying to get to fucking Mordor. Keep reading »

Period, The Musical

Period the musical
"Period Piece" Is Musical Theater At Its Finest

Broadway seems to be out of ideas for original musicals and YouTube user Lena D has a penned a beautiful song that so many women can relate to. They can come together and make one of the most hard-hitting musicals that the Great White Way has seen in a while. I’m envisioning it now: “Period Piece” is the opening number of a musical about one young woman’s journey from period shame to acceptance. Of course, there will be romance, tampons and tons of chocolate. Other numbers may include “Jam Rag,” “Un-pregnation,” “Bitch Ticket” and “Leak Week.” Can we please make this happen? [Jezebel]

Proof That Turn Of The Century Suffragettes Could Snark With The Best Of Them

Suffragette Snark

This hilariously biting piece of satire was written by suffragette activist/poet Alice Duer Miller in 1915, but replace the word “votes” with “reproductive rights” and it could easily be a modern day blog post. Here’s the full text, in case you can’t read the small print in the graphic: Keep reading »

Watch This: What If Horror Movie Characters Made Good Decisions?

Hell No Horror Movie
"Should we split up?" "HELL NO!"

Even the best horror movie storylines hinge on the main characters making very, very poor decisions. From exploring an abandoned mental institution to spending the weekend at a serial killer’s cabin to pushing play on a cursed videotape to taking every opportunity to split up and explore dark corners alone, horror movie characters are always severely lacking in common sense. This hilarious preview for an imaginary horror movie called “Hell No!” introduces us to something never before seen in the horror genre: sensible characters who do sensible things. You’ll hardly believe your eyes. [YouTube via The Mary Sue]

Ask A Self-Proclaimed Water Sommelier: 6 Pairings For Everyday Situations

Water Sommelier Pairing Suggestions

According to a new piece in the The Los Angeles Times, sommeliers who create specially curated, super expensive water menus are becoming more and more common at high-end restaurants. Water sommelier Martin Riese explains why:

“When you have good food, good wine and good spirits, you don’t want to contaminate that with [sic] water … All waters have unique tastes, and a lot of Americans think water is just water, but I completely don’t believe in that.Water has so many interesting nuances.”

I’ve been saying this since I was eight and my father would roll his eyes and tell me that I was a “snob.” I am not a snob; Arizona’s tap water (where I grew up) smelled and tasted like chlorine and made me feel sick. Apparently, I was born with a highly sensitive palate that could detect the thickness, minerality, sweetness and bitterness of various water varietals. Keep reading »

Your Favorite Pop Stars Get Furbified (Yes, That Means Furbies)

Your Favorite Pop Stars Get Furbified (Yes, That Means Furbies)

I am a product of the ’90s, so there was a period of time in my childhood wherein Furbies were my world. It could have been months, it could have been a year; whatever it was, Furbies are indelible in my memory lexicon. They were actually VERY CREEPY, which is probably why my parents were reluctant to purchase them for me at first, but they were beyond grateful when years later we were alerted to a catastrophic basement flood during a power outage by one of the malfunctions-when-wet animatronic creatures. Furbies may no longer be of the zeitgeist, now replaced by, like, an iPhone app or something, but in the hands of Swedish artist and big time Furby enthusiast William Källback Winter, they’ve been reborn as some of our most recognizable contemporary pop stars. Check out a few more after the jump, and more of Winter’s work at the source! [Furby Living via Huffington Post] Keep reading »
