Taylor Swift Lives My Dream Of Drowning In Kittens In This Diet Coke Commercial

Taylor Swift
Paradise, Basically

Taylor Swift is apparently Diet Coke’s new spokesgirl, and in this new commercial, she spends her afternoon surrounded by an ocean of kittens. Her own cat Olivia Benson even makes a cameo at the end, and if I’m being honest I’m totally twitching from wanting to pet all those little furballs. Meanwhile, Taylor’s other cat Meredith receives zero TV airtime and is totally getting the shaft. Sigh. It’s tough to be Mer. [Celebuzz]

I’m So Tired Of This Sentimental BS About How Social Media Is Bad For Us

Ironic: This Is Going Viral On Facebook!

Are you buggin’, Prince Ea? Yes. You are buggin’. Social media is not that bad. I am seriously about to headdesk over here over the critiques this video for “Can We Auto Correct Humanity?” poses.

Let me tell you a story about my childhood. When I was very young, my dad commuted by train, and my mom was still at home with us. After my sister and I came home from school, the three of us would go to meet my dad at the train station. Charming image, isn’t it? My dad would then routinely proceed to blow right past us because he was so absorbed in the book he was reading. Keep reading »

Guys Saying “I Love You” To Their Best Friends: I Have Questions

They take it SO SERIOUSLY

I’m not going to lie, male friendship is a mystifying thing to me. Whenever I overhear dude friends having really personal conversations, I feel like I’m hiding behind a bush observing a unicorn. Most of my best friends have been guys, and specifically straight guys, but our friendships have always taken on a different tenor than their friendships with each other. Like, I know that guys can be kind of vulnerable with each other, but again, only because I’ve overheard it, not because they’re publicly open about it in the way that women are — really, are allowed to be.

Hell Yes To This Documentary Series About Cosplaying!

How Cool!

YouTuber Todd Kenreck of Invader Boom has begun a documentary series on cosplaying called “Cosplay Boom,” the first episode of which has been released and future episodes of which depend on Kenreck’s fundraising efforts through crowd-funding site Patreon.

The first episode is really, really cool: It’s titled “Origins” and it’s a series of interviews with cosplayers and costumers on the subject of how they got into cosplay. You’d think that the biggest trend in their answers would be “I’m nerdy,” but really it’s more “This is so much fun!” There are people who cosplay because they admire the characters they’re cosplaying, and there are people who just like to dress up in costumes. (The gentleman dressed as Carl Fredericksen from “Up” is 100 percent my favorite.) Keep reading »

“The Daily Show” Solves Catcalling With A Few Simple Suggestions

"Act Like A Psycho" Is My Favorite

“The Daily Show”’s Jessica Williams has figured out how to stop catcallers from harassing you on the street and had a few suggestions for women, including changing our route to work, acting “like a psycho,” and these three rules: “Rule number one: Always wear oversized headphones. Rule number two: Master the fake phone call. Rule number three: Avoid eye contact at all costs.”

I mean, that probably won’t stop the catcallers anyway, but it’s worth a shot. On another note, when is Jessica Williams getting her own show? She’s awesome. [The Daily Show]

Watch This Film By Oscar Winner Laurent Witz, Then Sign Up To Be An Organ Donor

Organ Donation
Donate Life!

The New York Organ Donor Network has launched a “Long Live New York” campaign to raise awareness and encourage others to sign up for organ donation. The campaign begins with this emotional short film, directed by Laurent Wintz, who won an Oscar for his short film “Mr. Hublot.” Ranking 49th out of 50 states, New York is definitely short on donors — and every other state could use more donors as well. Growing up, my dad always proudly told me that he was registered as an organ donor and that when I grew up, I should be too. When I got a bit older and a childhood friend died unexpectedly at 19, her organs were donated and over 50 lives were either saved or dramatically changed by her donation. It was nothing short of a miracle, and the only thing that made the sting of her death a little easier to handle.
