I keep telling people to move to Chicago, but they keep giving me excuses not to (like having “jobs” elsewhere — whatever). Reason number 5,683,820 to move to Chicago: The George Lucas Museum of Narrative Art. San Francisco turned it down and now their mayor is all pouty about the fact that Lucas chose Chicago, because we offered a prime piece of land on the lakefront near our biggest convention center, Soldier Field, and the museum campus that includes the aquarium, the planetarium, and our museum of natural history.

Is it just us, or does it sometimes feels like the Internet is one giant argument between Gen Yers and Gen Xers? How all this Millennial finger wagging happened is beyond us (thanks, Kevin Bacon), but it would be great if for once, we could all just agree on some stuff, be nice, and share.

It’s called X vs. Y: A Culture War, a Love Story, and it comes out next week. After the jump, Leo (Gen Y, and a former Frisky columnist!) and Eve (Gen X) share seven pop culture obsessions the two generations can agree on. Keep reading »

Often the writer comes up with only a vague idea (or a specific yet terrible one) and the actor has to think up something better on the spot. In fact, some of the most iconic scenes of all time come about this way. Read more at Cracked…
“The Heat,” a foul-mouthed, gun-toting, slapstick-silly film opened in theaters this weekend — and it stars two female leads. Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, two of Hollywood’s raddest women, play an FBI agent and a cop, respectively, in the movie, which has been getting some positive reviews. So, to honor this awesome female duo, we thought we’d list the wackiest and wittiest female duos (on and off the screen) of all time.
