Weekend Shut-In Worksheet: Listen To Monophonics, Watch "Hannibal" & Make Your Own Deodorant (Seriously)

Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either. There will always be another party, another pub crawl, another picnic. The time you’ll spend indulging in the things you want to do, alone, are well worth it. Here’s a handy list of awesome things to do this weekend!

Oh, But The Sweet, Perfect, Simple Wisdom Of A Dog!

What Dogs Can Teach Us
Now I REALLY want a dog!

Nat Johnson’s new song, “Dog,” is a sweet ode to how lovely it is to have a dog, inspired by all the happy dogwalkers she saw in the park near her home. The just-released music video is a beautiful animation that perfectly illustrates the song’s central theme: dogs can teach us so much. My favorite line: “It’s important to walk/there are friends left to meet.” Perfect. [Brain Pickings]

Build Your Bunkers Now: This Is Going To Be The Biggest Country Hit Of The Summer

Jerrod Niemann Donkey
God Help Us.

There’s a disturbing buzz building in Nashville right now. It’s reminiscent of the sound of the T-Rex approaching in “Jurassic Park.” At first, it’s just a faint vibration, then a loud, sickening THUMP, then a deafening roar, and suddenly you’re stuck between its jaws, being eaten alive, and there’s nothing you can do about it. The advancing predator I’m referring to in this case, though, isn’t a dinosaur; it’s a country song called, “Donkey.”  Keep reading »

50 Songs That Never Fail To Make Us Cry


If I’m in the mood to cry, I know exactly how to make it happen: I have a Spotify playlist called “Saddies” that’s the perfect soundtrack for a good, old fashioned waterworks sesh. Obviously, I have some typical tearjerkers on there like “Unchained Melody” and “I Will Always Love You,” but the majority of them are songs specific to situations in my life that have made me want to rip my heart out of my body and shove it through a meat grinder. We all have them. I’ve asked my fellow Frisky ladies which songs make them cry until they have boogers running down their faces, and here’s the unified list of tunes guaranteed to make us bawl. Share your own cry-inducing songs in the comments!

Kevin Spacey Harmonizing To “Talk Dirty” Is One Of The Better Things To Hit The Interwebs This Week

He Is Serious About That Harmony

Yesterday, I was in need of some laughs to get through the Monday blues, so I watched this clip of Kevin Spacey on “The Tonight Show,” doing a barbershop rendition of Jason Derulo’s “Talk Dirty.” Then I watched it again, and again, and pretty much couldn’t stop. Something about his dead-eyed expression paired with his commitment to nailing those harmonies with Jimmy Fallon makes me crack up. His interview with Jimmy is pretty funny, too. I just love his wacky sense of humor. I’d say I wish he did more comedy instead of all those dramas, but that would mean living without “House Of Cards.”

Watch: Usher Releases New Video For “Good Kisser” (Psst! It’s About Blow Jobs)

Usher Good Kisser
"She's A Good Kisser...Got Lipstick On My Leg"

I’ve been a big Usher fan since forever, so I live most of my days waiting for him to release another sex-fueled slow jam that I can add to my bedroom repertoire. The day is finally here, my friends! The guy who brought us “Nice and Slow,” “You Make Me Wanna,” and “You Got It Bad,” is back with a new song called “Good Kisser,” about, um … kissing it. “It” being his penis. Check out some of the lyrics to his new tune below and take a listen. Let us know what you think in comments: love it or leave it? Keep reading »

Adele Hints At A New Album On Twitter

All Hail The Alt-Rock Queen: Garbage Singer Shirley Manson Is Still A Girl-Power Goddess

All Hail The Alt-Rock Queen: Garbage Singer Shirley Manson Is Still A Girl-Power Goddess
Shirley + Brode = Girl Power Goodness

For those of you who celebrated Record Store Day last month, I hope you picked up a copy of Garbage’s limited-edition 10-inch green vinyl, which featured the anti-mean girls anthem “Girls Talk.” Inspiration for the song first came in 2007 when the band was putting together their greatest hits collection, Absolute Garbage, but didn’t fully take shape for another seven years—or at least until Brody Dalle (The Distillers/Spinnerette) was able to contribute her signature sneer to it.

Michael Fassbender Dances To “Blurred Lines,” Gives Robin Thicke A Run For His Money

Michael Fassbender Knows You Want It

So, Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman and James McAvoy are in a movie together? Some kind of “X-Men” thing? I don’t know, I don’t really care. The important thing is, the hunky trio hit up the “The Graham Norton Show” together and performed the dance moves from “Blurred Lines.”  Robin Thicke had better watch his slimy back. Fassy’s got those moves down***. And he is way hotter, if I do say so myself. [YouTube]

***Given Michael Fassbender’s rumored past history of domestic abuse and the fact that some people think that “Blurred Lines” is a song condoning rape culture, I realize not everyone may share my glee at his dance moves. However, let’s just appreciate a silly video, shall we?
