Meet Your New Muse: Naked Dancing Man

This naked, dancing man is like a grownup version of that weird baby on Ally McBeal — unsettling and mesmerizing at the same time. But there is more to why a computer-generated man dancing around to an upbeat synth soundtrack is so captivating. Naked, dancing man is the animated embodiment of personal fulfillment and freedom.

New York City’s Katz’s Delicatessen was very famously featured in “When Harry Met Sally” as the lunch spot where Meg Ryan fakes a pretty epic orgasm.

“Fall Breakers” Is “Spring Breakers” With A Lot More Plaid Flannel And Pumpkin Spice Lattes

“Spring Breakers” was a movie about four hot chicks in bikinis who become sexy bank robbers. “Fall Breakers,” according to this hilarious parody trailer, is a movie about four hot chicks in plaid flannel shirts and cardigans who are really into pumpkin spice lattes and writhing around in crunchy leaves. Yep, that sounds about right.

Coupled But Don’t Have Kids? You Might Be DINK Or A DILDO

In this video, Lauren Cook and Kurt Braunohler explain how adult people don’t have to be “baby people” — they can be DINKS (double income, no kids) and DILDOS (double income, large dog owners). It’s annoying to bubble baby a baby, but putting a large dog in a Baby Bjorn that’s CUTE. So, if you…

Watch The Jump Roping World Champion Do Things You’ve Only Dreamed Of

I’m impressed by someone who can skip rope for more than 30 seconds without tripping on the thing. Double Dutch is like beyond impressive to me.

Period, The Musical

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…

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

Even the best horror movie storylines hinge on the main characters making very, very poor decisions.

Macklemore Prank Calls Lady On Craigslist Scalping His Tickets

Awkward. Macklemore called up a woman who was scalping tickets to one of his shows on Craigslist and gabbed to her for about five minutes in a (terrible) fake British-y accent. As far as prank calls go, it’s more uncomfortable than funny — he sounds like a lonely weirdo. But it’s kind of amazing when he…

Little Boy Shares Adorable Inner Monologue While Pooping

Ugh! We we’ve all been there: eaten too much and didn’t know why. Found ourselves on the porcelain throne, regretting it.
