I tried to resist, but I failed. For the second year in a row, I’ve decided to subscribe to the “Big Brother” livefeeds. The reality show’s 16th season kicked off last week, the livefeeds turned on last Friday, and the drama started almost immediately. The 16 houseguests have barely been living together for 10 days, but already a romance is a-brewin’. But unfortunately for those involved, it’s completely, totally, disturbingly one-sided.

This past Monday, The Atlantic’s Noah Berlatsky took it upon himself to complain that “Orange is the New Black” inadequately represents the male prison population. Ohhhh boy. Keep reading »
I stopped watching “True Blood” last season because the things I liked (Eric, Eric’s bare ass, Lafayette, Pam) were failing to make up for the things I didn’t like (Sookie, Bill, Sookie’s DERP face, Sam, Alcide speaking). Summer TV blows, though, so I decided to give the show another shot since it’s its last season — and boy, am I glad I did. I guess while I wasn’t watching last season, vampire Eric gave some of his blood to Jason Stackhouse, which explains why the latter has the world’s hottest sex dream about the former on last night’s episode. Can we please get more of this? Like, every episode? Perhaps instead of any scenes featuring Sookie and Bill? Let’s have “True Blood” go out in an explosion of hot gay sex, mmkay? Because this shit was hooooootttttttt (and a tiny bit awkward, but mostly hoooooootttttt).
Yesterday, the LGBTQ community and its allies came out to celebrate Gay Pride events across the country.

Check out a few more Instagram snaps after the jump! Keep reading »
Our worst fears are confirmed: TV is bad — like, really bad — for our health. Anyone could have hypothesized that tons of binge-watching isn’t ideal, but as it turns out, watching more than an hour of TV per day is plain dangerous.
For the study, researchers from the University of Navarra in Spain observed 13,284 participants over the course of four years. They found that those who watched three or more hours of TV a day had a doubled risk of mortality compared to those who watched less than an hour per day.
Well, that’s dark. Keep reading »
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 »
