Grumpy Cat hates everything — smiling, rainbows, fun — so it’s no surprise that Tardar Sauce is an enemy of love, too. If you also hate love — or at least hate the Hallmark holiday dedicated to monetizing love that just passed — you are gonna really enjoy the animated Grumpy GIF we’ve got after the jump!

Here is a surprising thing about Vin Diesel: He’s a member of Mensa. Another surprising thing? He is a smooth karaoke singer, with a very nice voice. Here, enjoy his Valentine’s Day karaoke tribute, and fall in love with Vin Diesel just a little bit more. [Facebook]
Hi there. I hope everyone had a splendid Valentine’s Day. Mine was about as uneventful as it gets. A shout out to my mom for being the only person to wish me Happy V-Day! Woot woot! Don’t worry, you are not detecting a whiff of bitterness emanating from this gal. I had a perfectly fine February 14th. But I can’t say the same for everyone. Some peoples’ Valentine’s Day bombed. After the jump, I’ll leave it up to you to vote for who had the worst Valentine’s Day. Keep reading »
I cannot say for certain how many laptops I have owned, I just know that it has been many. From my first clunky Toshiba to the 15″ MacBook Pro I purchased yesterday at the multilingual shitshow that is the Grand Central Apple Store (spotted: several separate incidents of international tourists FaceTiming on their own iPads from home as they walk around the area, what is that?), my long series of laptops and I have been through a lot together. Lo, “Laptops I Have Loved And Lost…,” otherwise known by its working title, “In Which I Finally Acknowledge That I Am A Spoiled Brat.” Keep reading »
Just a friendly reminder to all of you lovers out there that not every kind of gift is appropriate for the Valentine’s Day holiday. This Facebook suggestion was sent to me by an engaged friend of mine. Really, Facebook? The best you can do is suggest that a woman “surprise” her fiancé with a Starbucks gift card this Valentine’s Day? Nothing against Starbucks — or coffee even — I’m a caffeine addict. But if I had a special someone and he surprised me with a Starbucks gift card, that would be, well, odd. Add this to the list of V-Day presents that will not get you laid. Oh, and “the gift of cancer screening.” It’s a real thing. I got a PR email about it. Not OK.

This is Colonel Mustard. He’s often the first thing I see in the morning and the last thing I see at night. In the evening, he likes to sit on my chest while I’m in bed and trying to read a book. He’ll swat at the pages until I pet him, and when I do, he purrs like a lawn mower tearing down some tall grass. In the morning, he follows me into the bathroom and talks to me while I’m trying to brush my teeth. He is a small, furry, very demanding child.
I have had Mustard — he also goes by Moo Moo, Moutard, The Colonel, The Kern-Dog and Dijonaisse (when he’s feeling saucy) — for going on three years. He was a rescue that I took on as a foster, but when I saw his huge paws — he’s got 7 toes on each front paw and six on the back — I knew I had to keep him. He sheds a lot, and twice yearly, he gets his bushy Maine Coon fur shaved into a lion cut. He also talks a lot. Like, all the time. And when he’s not talking, he’s purring, very loudly. It is crazy.

Brad Pitt filled Angelina with genetically perfect babies and then gifted her with a ring he helped design.

You might think if you want to woo like the celebs do, you need loads of cash and a high pain threshold in your nether regions. But you would be wrong! Celebrities do pull some romantic moves for their loved ones that seem exclusively available to the rich and famous.

Depending on whom you ask, tomorrow might be Valentine’s Day, Singles Awareness Day, or Day-Before-Discount-Candy-At-Duane-Reade Day. Like it or not, romance is a big deal tomorrow, at least if you’re in the States. And to, er, celebrate, I decided to write about movies and TV shows that don’t have any romance. Sadly, there aren’t as many of them as you might think.
I’m not saying there’s anything necessarily wrong with romance. There are tons of romantic movies I really like. But Hollywood’s love affair with love affairs is practically to the point of obsession. Time and time again romantic subplots are shoehorned in in a horribly awkward way (looking at you, “Thor”), and finding one’s One Twu Wuv is often painted as the most important thing in a character’s life, especially if they’e female. But there are other relationships in people’s lives that are just as relevant and worthy of Hollywood’s time. Plus… look, sometimes I just want a break from all the googly eyes. Is that too much to ask?
To that end, here are seven movies and one TV show you can watch tomorrow if you’re sick of all the candy and flowers. Read more…
