There are so many awkward girls being portrayed in movies and TV, as well as the slew of Hollywood It Girls out there showing the world that it’s OK to be awkward. Love them or hate them, we’ve already embraced them! Here’s a gallery of some of the best awkward girls out there. Read more…
Last night’s episode of “Mad Men” was weirdly awesome. Peggy gave a handjob in a dark movie theater (GIF after the jump!), Don tried to force Megan to enjoy Howard Johnson’s orange sherbet (GIF after the jump!), and, as shown in the clip above, Roger Sterling dropped acid.

This week, Claire Danes turned 33! While the birthday girl is all grown up these days as the star of Homeland and wife to hot actor Hugh Dancy, we will always remember Claire as the angsty teen heroine of “My So-Called Life,” Angela Chase.

Angela Chase of “My So Called Life” said lots of words to live by, if you were an awkward, 15-year-old sophomore in high school in 1994. Which I was. And I was especially fond of her deep musings about love or, more specifically, her musings about Jordan Catalano. If Angela could go for Jordan Catalano, then so could I, I thought. Well not him exactly—but an alternative him. Sure, it seemed a tad unrealistic considering that no remotely hot guys went to my high school. And even if they did, they would never look twice at me, the bookish, alternative, theater girl. But still, I believed. Keep reading »
