Weekend Shut-In Worksheet: Read Friendship By Emily Gould, See "Begin Again" & Make Salted Caramel S'mores

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! Keep reading »

Study: “27 Dresses” And “The Bachelorette” Are Messing With Your Love Life

The Best & Worst Moments From Last Night's Finale Of "The Bachelor"

Researchers have found evidence that watching rom-coms and sitcoms impact our views on love. TV seems to shape our view of reality in every other realm of life, so I’m not exactly shocked it’s also true for romance.

Why Dave Is Still Single, a study by University of Michigan researchers, asked participants how frequently they watch rom-coms, marriage-themed reality shows and sitcoms.They discovered that participants who watch a lot of rom-coms and romantic reality shows were more likely to believe in things like love at first sight and “The One” – you know, the stuff that keeps us forever alone because we’re stubbornly waiting for some ever-elusive meet cute with a Ken doll that will never arrive. These participants were more likely to agree with phrases like “My ‘true love’ will be nearly perfect” or the concept that they’d know immediately if their significant other was right for them.

Behold, The Pugs Of Westeros!

Behold, The Pugs Of Westeros!
The Night Is Dark And Full Of Pugs

Phillip and Sue Lauer have (at least) two big passions in life: their pugs Roxy, Blue and Bono, and the book/TV series “Game of Thrones.” Naturally, like any decent dog-obsessed nerds with a lot of time of their hands, they’ve meticulously recreated the HBO show with their pups playing the various characters, including Jon Snow, Joffrey Baratheon and Daenarys Targaryen. There’s even a puppy-sized Iron Throne that took two full days to make! Impressive. [Buzzfeed]

What We Want To See Go Down In The Final Season Of “True Blood”

What We Want To See Go Down In The Final Season Of "True Blood"

Like that troublesome ex-boyfriend that you sleep with once a year, just in the summer when it’s steamy out and you’re peak tan, “True Blood” is back for its final season, and things sure look interesting! The series has had its peaks and valleys, but as of late has grown into an unwieldy beast, plucking storylines out of thin air and weaving them together with dental floss, spit and gumption. This season looks to make a return to its roots, with a good, old-fashioned showdown between good and evil.

If you can’t remember what happened in season six, here’s a brief recap: Terry died. Luna died. The terrible governor of Louisiana died, but not before he made an underground vampire concentration camp where he was performing medical tests and torture on vampires. The world’s supply of TruBlood has been infected with Hepatitis V, a horrible disease that causes vampires to die a slow, melty, gooey death. Sookie met Warlow , the bad vampire/faerie that killed her family, fell in love with him, almost married him, and then realized that he was shitty after all, so Jason killed him. Bill became a new super-vampire, drinking the essence of Lilith, and actually isn’t that bad anymore. And the last time we saw Eric, he was nude and on fire on a glacier in Sweden. Check out our hopes and dreams for the citizens of Bon Temps, after the jump, and don’t forget to watch the season premiere tonight on HBO! Keep reading »

Ain’t No Party Like An Clone Dance Party On “Orphan Black”

Clone dance party on Orphan Black finale

The only thing I’m going to reveal about last night’s sorta shocking “Orphan Black” season finale is that, after long last, Helena finally met her sestras Cosima (“I like your hairs,” Helena said, and I cried) and Alison. And together, along with Felix, Sarah, and Kira, they all had a dance party. It was so so so perfect and wonderful. GIFS! GIFS Galore! More after the jump… Keep reading »

Lifetime Will Air TV Movie About Behind-The-Scenes On “Saved By The Bell”

  • Well, this is interesting/exciting/strange/cool: Lifetime is airing an TV movie about behind-the-scenes drama on the ’90s TV show “Saved By The Bell.” They’ve even cast six actors who look just like Elizabeth Berkley, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, and the other kids.

Found: Watch Matt McGorry, Who Plays Bennett On “Orange Is The New Black,” Play A He-Man Beefcake In A Student Film

matt-mcgorry-new
Yup, That's Bennett From "Orange Is The New Black"

Every actor gets their start somewhere. For Matt McGorry, who plays lovebird correctional officer John Bennett on “Orange Is The New Black,” his start was as an axe-wielding He-Man hero in a hilarious student film.

While at Emerson College, McGorry donned a Fabio wig to appear as Gorm in a six-minute-short called “Gizor And Gorm.” It’s got “fertility maidens” fucking a ginger dude tied to a rock. It’s got lots of fake blood. And most importantly, it’s got Matt McGorry running around in the woods without his shirt off.
