Encore!

They Nailed It!

Attention theatre nerds and “How I Met Your Mother” fans, alike. Gather ‘round, my children and see what happened on Thursday night’s episode of “Inside The Actor’s Studio.” In honor of the series finale of “HIMYM” and the Broadway revival of the legendary “Les Mis,” Jason Segel and Neil Patrick Harris performed an impromptu version of “The Confrontation” with Segel singing the part of Jean Valjean and NPH as Javert. Most impressive: they did it a cappella. They are true performers. I feel like this could happen for real. [People]

Beyonce’s Alternative Video For “Grown Woman” Is For Those Of Us Who Grew Up With “Saved By The Bell,” Caboodles & Trapper Keepers

Beyonce's Alternative Video For "Grown Woman" Is For Those Of Us Who Grew Up With "Saved By The Bell," Caboodles & Trapper Keepers
So Colorful And Squiggly!

As I’m sure you know, Beyonce‘s most recent self-titled album came along with a music video for each song on the record, plus a few extra videos, including one for the song “Grown Woman.” Now an alternative video has been released for that song, and visually, it is seemingly inspired by so many of the things that defined the early-’90s. Namely, the MS Paint-esque doodles and graphics are reminiscent of the opening credits of “Saved By The Bell,” as well as the designs favored by brands like Caboodles and Trapper Keeper. I can’t remember the last time I saw so much teal and sea foam green in a music video! Take me back, Bey, take me back. [YouTube]

“Dyke & Fats” Is The Cop Show Of Our Dreams

"Only we get to say it!"

This weekend’s Louis C.K.-hosted “Saturday Night Live” capped off with a winner of a sketch that we hope to see a lot more of: “Dyke & Fats,” the cop show about a pair of Chicago police officers named Lez Dykawitz (Kate McKinnon) and Chubbina Fatzarelli (Aidy Bryant). But fair warning, criminals! Don’t go calling them by their nicknames, Dyke and Fats — only THEY get to say it. Watch above!

I happen to think Natalie Maines of The Dixie Chicks has one of the most glorious voices currently in music, so I am not the slightest bit surprised that the band killed Miley Cyrus’s “Wrecking Ball” at a concert in London recently. I mean, no offense to Miley, who I happen to think really shows off her impressive vocal range on the song — look at me, talking like I’m Bette Midler and know shit about “vocal range” — but Natalie’s voice was made to sing this ballad, especially since she adds her own dose of country twang.

Here’s What The Syrian War Would Look Like For A Little Girl In London

This Is A Reality For Millions

This chilling video by Save The Children gives us a peek into what the Syrian War would look like if it took place in London, as an ordinary little girl’s life is suddenly disrupted by the disintegration of her city. As much as the violence in Syria has dominated headlines, it sometimes seems hard to grasp or even fathom, and this ad paints a straightforward picture of the reality faced by 2.3 million refugees who’ve been forced out of their homes. The video’s closing note, ”Just because it isn’t happening here, doesn’t mean it isn’t happening,” really stuck with me. It’s hard to face the fact that kids are ever subjected to such extreme tragedy. Save The Children is hoping to raise money for what some people are calling Syria’s lost generation — kids who are growing up in refugee camps and have lost friends and loved ones to the conflict.

Leighton Meester Dares To Cover Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” And It’s Actually Really Good

Leighton does Stevie proud

I am always weary when anyone covers a Stevie Nicks song — especially when it’s a celebrity who is not known for being a singer. Naturally, I was ready to hate Leighton Meester and Dana Williams’ version of Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams,” but remarkably, I didn’t. Williams, whose EP The Lonely One is now available on iTunes, sounds amazing and Meester’s not so bad either. She gets extra respect from me for her guitar-playing abilities. I rate this highly listenable, as far as Fleetwood Mac covers go. [Refinery 29]

Tori Amos’ New Song “Trouble’s Lament” Is Pure Tori

*** Fans Self ***

If you were a certain type of teenaged girl, your inner emotional landscape was set to a channel of all Tori Amos, all the time. As someone who still has deep emotional connection to Little Earthquakes, I’m already losing my shit over the first song from her new album. “Trouble’s Lament” is CLASSIC TORI and gives me hopes for her upcoming album, Unrepentent Geraldines, out on May 13. Give a listen: I think you’ll love it as much as I do. [YouTube]

Word to your grandmother.

This video of a very talented grandma breaking out respectable dance moves to “Ice, Ice Baby” while cooking dinner is your daily reminder of why the internet is great. Her grandson may be in embarrassed, but I am impressed. And the dog seems to be as well. Word to you, grandma. [Daily Picks And Flicks]

The Theme Song For Sarah Palin’s New Show Is The Most Patriotic Thing You’ll Ever Hear

The Theme Song For Sarah Palin's New Show Is The Most Patriotic Thing You'll Ever Hear
Press Play To Listen To Your New July 4th Jam!

I’m sure you already have your DVRs set, but starting on April 3, Sarah Palin’s got a new show on the Sportsman Channel called “Amazing America” and naturally it has the world’s most patriotic theme song since “Team America: World Police”‘s “America, Fuck Yeah.” (Which, reminder, was a ridiculous satire starring marionettes.) The band Madison Rising — named after President James Madison, obvi — is responsible for this hard rockin’ anthem about the badass-ness of the good ol’ US of A. It’s the perfect song for right wingers to blast at their 4th of July barbecues, while shooting tin cans and thinking of new ways to control women’s reproductive rights. Check out the lyrics after the jump! [Gawker] Keep reading »
